How does the Elemental Stone, Elemental Staff & Enhanced Elemental Staff work?


  • Each of the items gives stats to the hero that holds it.. if the owning player gets a kill
  • The Number of Stats gained is calculated by the following algorithm:
  • PRIMARY_STAT_GAIN_BONUS = 3
  • SECONDARY_STAT_GAIN_MODIFIER_STR = 0.7
  • SECONDARY_STAT_GAIN_MODIFIER_AGI = 0.85
  • SECONDARY_STAT_GAIN_MODIFIER_INT = 1.3
  • diff_real = game_difficulty * 0.04 // scale from 1-5 to 0.05-0.25
  • air_real = air? * 0.06 // 0-1 to 0-0.07
  • invis_real = invisible? * 0.03 // 0-1 to 0-0.03
  • sum_mode_real = 0.55*(diff_real + invis_real + air_real) // in range 0 to 0.35 currently
  • // count all 3 types of elemental stone items
  • count1 = 0.6*count_elem_stones + 0.9*count_elem_staffs+ 1.55*count_enhanced_elem_staffs
  • // apply weights and take number of recent kills in to count
  • count = count1 * 1.3 * kills * (1.15 - (sum_mode_real) )
  • //calculate the effect passage of time has on stats awarded
  • count = count*( (udg_GameMinutes / (16.5 + (10*sum_mode_real)) )+(0.6 - sum_mode_real) ) // make sure that last bit wont go negative!
  • //apply primary stat modifier PRIMARY_STAT_GAIN_BONUS
  • //apply stat type modifiers SECONDARY_STAT_GAIN_MODIFIER_STR, SECONDARY_STAT_GAIN_MODIFIER_AGI, SECONDARY_STAT_GAIN_MODIFIER_INT
  • //take in to account carry over from previous gains (if you gain say 1.2 stat then we save that .2 and apply that later)
  • // apply bonus and store new carry
  • The algorithm is subject to change arbitrarily as it has mayor balancing implications.
  • Equation has been changed for 6.43, will update answer when we officially release it.
  • From 6.43 onward you will be given different amounts of STR, AGI and INT + you gain more (x3) of the main stat
  • The fractional parts of earned stats will be remembered and carry over.
  • The overall stat gain rate has been drastically decreased (spec in the beginning of the game)
