wrong category, lol

this is TP Drain, not TP Bonus ;)

Drain will randomly take away some of the TP from the monster and give it to you. Very similar to "bloody" weapons except that this is TP not HP.

Ive long wondered how the "TP bonus" works. I looked up forums and found two rumors;

**"HYPOs"**

1; You gain more TP each hit.

2; You do more damage with more TP, (ect; 200%TP 2x DMG, 300% 3x DMG)

**FAQ:**

I know that TP gain is based on weapon delay. And that The higher delay on your weapon the more TP you get each hit.

I wield the Scythe so I took that into testing.

**EQUIP:**

I choose two scythes with identical delay to get exact results; (Death Scythe vs Martial Scythe).

**RESULTS:**

Each Hit with Death Scythe gained me 12.5 TP.

Each Hit with Martial Scythe gained me 12.5 TP.

However, after each hit I seemed to get +2 more damage; Why? Because Double attack kicked in and I got two Critical Hits in a row, the first had 324 Damage but the next had 326.

**SPECULATION/CONCLUSION:**

Since the decimals does not show up in the debug window I can only assume that by +12.5 TP you get +2 damage.

By rounding it up to more reasonable numbers I whould say that by dividing up the TP to "10+2.5" instead of 12.5 I can speculate that +10 TP gives +2 damage thus +5 TP = +1 damage

**FINAL WORDS:**

I can not by say exact that +5 TP = +1 more attack to hits. But it's pretty close. Maybe some decimals we are "un-aware" of are playing factors. If my formula is true "+5 TP = +1 Damage" then you will get +60 damage with 300% TP to each hit. I am a STR collector and this will kinda make things hard for me because the STR I collect boost my WS, but since I will not use my weaponskills rather to getting more avarage damage then +ATK and not +STR whould be the optimum choice. This weapon will be best suited for +ATK collectors that will stack TP up and do HIGH avarage damage instead of weaponskills.

I appologize for any miss-spelling in my report.

Regards!
