Explaining the upcoming Weapon Bonus Roll Changes

Rashere has posted an explanation of the coming bonus roll changes.

Source: http://forums.defiance.com/showthread.php?193157-Coming-Change-to-Weapon-Rarity-Bonuses

Rashere makes a huge effort to improve our itemization. As part of that, he changed the way weapon bonus rolls are working.

First of: These changes aren't retroactive. Only newly acquired weapons will be influenced by the new system. Weapons with fixed stats (e.g. the Zagger) won't be affected either.

So what exactly did he change?

  • Every weapon subtype now has its own bonuses
    • This prevents useless rolls on weapons
  • No duplicate rolls on weapons anymore
  • Rolls are calculated from highest to lowest tier
    • When upgrading a weapon and you roll a duplicate stat, the lower tier stat will be replaced by a new one
      • There can only happen two rerolls total (one for the upgraded stat and one if a stat has to be replaced)
  • Magazine stats are now all percentages instead of flat values
    • Even the smallest magazine size will be affected by the common (white) roll

Here is a comparison of the old and the new system:

Current System New System
  • In the current system, you need two rolls to gain +15% damage
  • In the new system, you gain 12% more damage, but gain an additional benefit due to having damage only in one slot

"Weapons with fixed stats (e.g. the Zagger) won't be affected either."

Does this means that the votan flash riffle or other named smg from warmaster won't get their fixed stat modified ?(Old roll turn into the new roll value) since they have no double stats it won't change a thing except better mag, fire rate, well better bonuses; Afterall it is not the point of the new bonuses rolls?

Why did they leave recoil and accuracy on the shotguns? Especially the sawed off shotguns. Those are worthless stats for shotguns and just a waste of a roll.

 So the Purple Roll:

+15% DMG on next grenade after a kill

Is to be removed from ALL guns that don't fire grenades?

Purple rolls are unchanged I believe.

Computer says No.

Ok.......
