Does it make a difference though once your 'score stats' says you've reached the peak of your ability (or whatever the wording is)?

ok seriously, on score stats, is the message:
'You have mastered the art of cheating death itself'
the highest rating possible?

I had about 4 shock eq slots above that level, and the message didn't change, and my shock/raise rate didn't appear to improve either, so I reduced my shock eq to the minimum level of slots required to keep that message showing on score stats - and it has made no noticeable difference to my shock/raise rate (this is over a number of months), at least not that I can tell..

So again I'm wondering if anyone has found that having an excess of shock eq really has any effect once you've reached that 'mastered the art of cheating death' threshold? I don't do enough raises to really give a reliable result, so perhaps someone else has?

cheers.

If you're maxxed, you're maxxed. However, you should also consider that there are other factors to raising. If you don't have 18 wisdom, then you still have room for improvement. Everything else is on the person being raised though.

Thanks the the input 12345. Nods, I'm basically taking 18 wis as a given :) , although yeah, the con on the person being raised has an effect, not that I can control that variable.. hmm.. I wonder if every additional piece of shock eq above that max message would kind of counter each point of con below 18 on the dead person (or some such relationship between the two).

I don't know whether it's the best score stat message for system shock. All +shock figures [6, 10] yield that message, and I don't have a character capable of wearing more than that much in-game +shock eq.

I doubt that message indicates a cap. Cap messages usually take an additional line, like this:

Your offensive spells are overwhelming.
You have reached the peak of your potential for offensive spells.

[quote="Weasel":2cr85rtx]I had about 4 shock eq slots above that level, and the message didn't change, and my shock/raise rate didn't appear to improve either, so I reduced my shock eq to the minimum level of slots required to keep that message showing on score stats - and it has made no noticeable difference to my shock/raise rate (this is over a number of months), at least not that I can tell.. [/quote:2cr85rtx]

You would need to try around 1000 raises with raise targets of equal constitution to make a meaningful finding about the affect of a particular point of +shock. Furthermore, you would either use rina for all tests, or for none of them. Casually tracking your raise rate, even to that quantity of raises, will yield useless data.
