Ok what I need help with is shown below.....

Basically I am trying to figure out where I get the data for the $s1%, I have looking in the spells entry in the DBC and have not found anything that contains the correct data.

Rank1 would be 5%
Rank2 would be 10%

There is no 5 or 10 in any field for these spells. I am sure its something easy that I am over looking or maybe a DBC I don't have..... any help would be great!


Spell Description From Spell.DBC
Improved Curse Of Agony
Rank 2/2

Increases the damage done by your Curse Of Agony by $s1%


For a live example you can visit Talent Tree Demo, All you need to do is mouse of the first talent in the first tree!

Heya wil,

I havn't been active at arcemu for a long time now, but when i used to have a server a year back, this tooltip variable ($s1% etc.) were a lot of times changed by the server.
Spell Modifiers can change those texts (ill take improved curse of weakness as the agony is removed from cata) on wowhead you see this:

TT:

Quote

Improved Curse of Weakness Rank 2
Increases the amount of attack power reduced by your Curse of Weakness by 20%.


Effect:

Quote

Apply Aura: Add Modifier - % (3)
Value: 20


It will apply a modifier of ID 3 to the server, and then the server sends a
SMSG_PRECENTAGE_MODIFIER packet to the client telling some field is changed, and the client will update the tooltip according to what is in the Packet.

The $s1% variable of the tooltip will then change so the player can see the new text on the client.

I am not sure whar $s1 means, perhaps it means get the 1st value of the effect (Not sure just a thought).
Wow uses a lot of those $s1% and others in their DBC's , especially the Spell.DBC One.

Thanks for the help this has gotten me on the right path, The value you find in the DBC requires you to add 1 to it for it to be the correct value.

Now its just a lot of find every tag in the descriptions and getting them replaced properly.
