# Does a master star stack with perks?

#1

Like if I had 10% more damage and say I use a 15% damage increased perk.

The unofficial tips/strategy thread
#2

Mastery increases base damage. Buffs + Perks donâ€™t stack though. Perks and Buffs enhance base damage.

#3

so even with the 15% damage perk I will still just do 15% damage?

#4

No. So lets say a gun does 100 damage. Mastery fives you 10% more damage. Your base damage is 110. Then you choose the +15% perk. Your damage is based on the modified base, so 110. That means you base damage is now 116.5.

#5

Your math has got me a bit confused. 15% increased damage, if the base becomes 110, should be adding 16.5 damage to the hypothetical â€ś100 damage weaponâ€ť (now 110 damage) to deal 126.5 damage.

#6

Yes, my math is bad, you are correct I left a 10 digit off.

#7

Good information though, I wasnâ€™t aware that perks and masteries stacked like that.

#8

The perks and buffs do not stack @Azmi_Anuar Which ever is the strongest one, that will take effect. For example, the damage perk you get at the character select is max 15%. When you kill the Elite Crowbill Sloth in game it will give you a extra 30% damage. When the player picks up the perk from the Crowbill, damage will be increased by 30% and not stack with the 15%.
So the same perks will never stack.

I can finally sleep in peace tonight.

#10

WAIT!

The ultimate question is, does your mastery +10% damage stack with your +15% damage perk?

EDIT: I read the previous comments saying they do but is it confirmed?

#11

It most definitely should. If it didnâ€™t, that would be ridiculous.

#12

You should edit that because the way you calculated it does indeed fully stack.

#13

How does that work together with the buffs from Evacuation on the losing team?
And how does Cairaâ€™s speed buff work in comparison to the Albino Movement Speed buff? I got sped-up yesterday by a Caira while I had that buff, but didnâ€™t feel any difference in speed?(Or negligible at best)

#14

the question is what the math is

100 base damage * 1.15 * 1.1 = 126,5

OR

100 base damage *1.15 + 100 base damage *0.1 = 125

does it stack additively or multiplicativly?

@maddcow now you said both increase base damage, but calculated it the other way around. where do you get your information?

#15

Miyagi cleared that up above. Yes it stacks, however perks picked up from wildlife wont stack with the 15% perk. So if you get the 35% extra damage off an albino, and you have 15% already on it will set it at 30% until the timer runs out. Then it will go back to 15%.

#16

he did not?

#17

What do you mean?

#18

Miyagi did not say anything about masteries?

#19

mastery+perks stack

perks+buffs do not

end.

#20

good job ignoring my questions. the end.
