DV Comparison

From Fixalted
Jump to: navigation, search

This page is for the comparison of the achievable DVs for the various types of Exalts without using Blade of the Battle Maiden. All Assume relevent Attribute + Ability + Specialty is 13 (14 for Lunars). All Dodge DVs assume hearthstone bracers. All values are entirely without bonuses for cover.

Exalt Max DDV Max PDV Notes
Solar 15 + [Essence/2] 14 + [Defense/2] The highest possible defense is 10, for GSS, giving a legal PDV of 19.
Lunar 12 + Essence 10 + [Essence/2] + [Defense/2] This assumes the use of Relentless Lunar Fury.
Sidereals(A) 8 + [3*Essence/2] 7 + [Defense/2] + Essence This assumes that Sidereal DV doublers count against the DV cap.
Sidereals(B) 16 + [2*Essence] 13 + Defense + Essence This assumes that Sidereal DV doublers do not count against the DV cap. Note that achieving this cap with DDV is rather difficult, and cannot be done persistently.
Terrestrials 12 + [Essence/2] 11 + [Defense/2] Water Dragon Stylists can easily achieve Defense 6 with Black Jade Dragonclaws.

Breakdown at Different Essence Ratings

A lot of the above calculations assume the use of charms with high minimum Essence ratings, so here's a breakdown by essence rating.

Essence 2

Exalt Max DDV Max PDV Notes
Solar 16 14 + [Defense/2] At this essence rating it's prettymuch impossible to go this high persistently.
Lunar 14 11 + [Defense/2] This assumes the use of Relentless Lunar Fury.
Sidereals 11 9 + [Defense/2] No DV doubler charms exist at this essence rating.
Terrestrials 13 11 + [Defense/2] None.

Essence 3

Exalt Max DDV Max PDV Notes
Solar 18 14 + [Defense/2] The highest possible defense is 10, for GSS, giving a legal PDV of 19.
Lunar 17 13 + [Defense/2] This assumes the use of Relentless Lunar Fury.
Sidereals(A) 13 10 + [Defense/2] This assumes that Sidereal DV doublers count against the DV cap.
Sidereals(B) 24 17 + Defense This assumes that Sidereal DV doublers do not count against the DV cap. This cap cannot be achieved persistently, and requires the use of persistent DV adders (probably from martial arts) in order to achieve.
Terrestrials 13 11 + [Defense/2] Water Dragon Stylists can easily achieve Defense 6 with Black Jade Dragonclaws.

Essence 4

Sidereals(A) 14 11 + [Defense/2] This assumes that Sidereal DV doublers count against the DV cap.
Sidereals(B) 22 16 + Defense This assumes that Sidereal DV doublers do not count against the DV cap. This cap cannot be achieved persistently, and requires the use of persistent DV adders (probably from martial arts) in order to achieve.

Sidereals(A) 15 12 + [Defense/2] This assumes that Sidereal DV doublers count against the DV cap.
Sidereals(B) 24 17 + Defense This assumes that Sidereal DV doublers do not count against the DV cap. The DDV cap cannot be achieved persistently, and requires the use of persistent DV adders (probably from martial arts) in order to achieve. The PDV cap can be achieved persistently, and requires no special persistent adders outside of those available to all Sidereals.
Terrestrials 15 11 + [Defense/2] Water Dragon Stylists can easily achieve Defense 6 with Black Jade Dragonclaws.
