    This is such a vague question.  I doubt anyone can answer it the way you want.

    hmm hard to say, I would rather see the question say: what is the highest burst damage % in an MMORPG. Big numbers means nothing  and its all for show. You could divid DPS number and mob hit points by 20 or 30 or 50 and never change a thing on how a fight goes. Its all about the %'s

    The highest I've seen is when I accidentily attacked the wizards guild in Neriak.  I got hit for max damage possible which was like over 300k if I remember correctly.

    Suppression Fire spam Rifle use in The Secret World. Hands down, pound for pound champ. Time To Kill of less than a second (beta, 1 week before launch) on 5k or less HP pools on average.

    Off course, highest % :)

    Interesting question. Stacking skills, bonuses and buffs probably makes for some massive multipliers for a lot of the scout classes. Would be neat to see some kind of comparison chart.

    Your question is kinda vague, but I remember Bright Wizards from Warhammer Online being absolute beasts when their Combustion level was maxed out, self-harm be damned.

     

    Combustion level Critical Chance Critical Damage Backlash
    1 - 10 +5% +10% 5%
    11 - 30 +10% +20% 10%
    31 - 70 +15% +40% 15%
    71 - 90 +25% +80% 25%
    91 - 100 +35% +100% 35%

    Nature without Magic is without wonder or miracle.

    Magic without Technology is fantasy.
    Magic without Nature is formless and useless.

    Technology without Nature is application without understanding.
    Technology without Magic is repetitious and uninventive.

    If your talking about hp damage or % damage doesn't matter, as long as the titan got a clean hit then it does 

    Base Shield DamageBase Shield Damage
    2000000
    Base Armor DamageBase Armor Damage
    800000

     

    NB this is not even with skills and ship set up considered so this would be like your level 100 wizard *or any other class* doing their magic / damage with 0 clothes and skills mapped

     
    Whilst of course it has in game constraints it also shows your question being rather pointless :) 
     
    % of damage that is over 10000% base damage against smaller items
    and yet only 50% of the base damage of Super capitals
     
    So what are we going to judge base % from ? this cannot be answered
     
    in response to the guy who said about under 1sec to kill a mob with gun, this would kill something in the time it takes to click mouse button, so again use time as the constraint then the biggest constrain will be the ping > server

    This post is all my opinion, but I welcome debate on anything i have put, however, personal slander / name calling belongs in game :) were of course your welcome to call me names im often found lounging about in EvE online.

    question was answered on page 1.

     

    no matter how much dmg you do, you are no freakin death star (and the titan surely is close enough hehe)

    daggers? lol.... magic? cute

     

    that weapon system it fires is bigger than most of your boss fight maps :P

    Speaking relatively rather than absolutely Hibernian rangers could pump it out in DAoC. Despite being a favourite it did have some OP mechanics (fookin Dwarven stunlocking healers)

      Guess you didnt play when warlocks were added.. stupid suicide bombers with their 3 preloaded spells.

      Personally Ive played characters that could one shot (after burning quite a few cooldowns and stacking a rediculous amount of damage buffs) or one round another character with regularity.

      Other side of that coin would be battery healers in DAoC. Instantly healing any damage taken.. up to 3000 hp, I think it was.

    It's hard to get the right context you're looking for. But one thing that comes to mind is when a Paladin Reckon-bombed a world raid boss in Vanilla WoW with 1816 attacks in about 1 second and killed it nearly instantly.
  • IselinIselin Vancouver, BCPosts: 5,622Member Uncommon

    Warhammer Online - Witch Elf at release (i.e. pre-nerf) They were meant to kill clothies in 1 second...problem was, they also killed heavy armor tanks in the same amount of time. And unlike the Bright Wizard, no ramp-up time needed.

    This one will catch you off guard but Wizard 101 lol.

    You can build up dmg to hit massive proportions,and it is all in perspective according to normal damage.Your normal spell might hit for around idk anywhere from 3/4/500 then built up to 30/40/60/100k damage.

    Spike dmg would only be spike dmg if it has a lot more damage and hate than normal damage.

    i know in FFXi you would normally hit around 100-250 but could spike upwards of 2/4/5-10k.That would be around a 1200-40k% spike in damage.

    I have never tried to pay too much attention to it,so i don't really know what game has the highest % spike.

    In the TRUEST answer to the question,FFXI is the only game that uses BURST damage as in Magic Burst lol. and has a spell for BLM also called BURST :P.
