# Confused on how the riven changes work

## Recommended Posts

I don't understand what notes like "Supra 1.14->1.0" mean.  How does that translate to the riven 1/5 disposition dots in game?

The game code stores and uses an numeric value for disposition that ranges from 0.5 to 1.5 (or is it 1.6?).  All the dots in the UI are is a graphical representation of that range.  So 1 dot would be like 0.5 to 0.7 and 2 dots would be 0.7 to 0.9 and so on.

That means if the disposition of a weapon changes from 0.5 to 0.55 (the soma) we don't actually see a change in the UI because both the old and the new value is showed by 1 dot.

It's the multiplier to the percentages for each stat. So the ranges are the following for each dot in the disposition graphic.

1 (.5 - .7)

2 (.71 - .9)

3 (.91 - 1)

4 (1.1 - 1.3)

5 (1.31 - 1.5)

So, assuming I'm understanding this correctly, a riven rolls and it has a range of possible values on each of the stats it rolls up.

Say (and this is just for an example, and isn't right) +damage has a range of +8% to +12% per rank of the riven, and for the sake of the argument it rolls +10% per rank.

Then, it's adjusted by disposition.  So, if it's a 5 star riven with a 1.5 disposition, that +10% per rank becomes +15% per rank.  If it's a 1 star with a .5 disposition, it becomes +5% per rank.  A 3 star that's the highest dispostion for 3 star and has 1 disposition, stay +10% per rank.

That an accurate explanation?

That is the idea yes.  I tend to ignore the maths involved personally and just use https://semlar.com/rivencalc

You also have to factor in the variances of 2 vs 3 positive stats and 0 vs 1 negative stats as both of those influence the range in addition to the disposition.

idk but my supra riven had 220% dmg before the riven dispo nuke
now it has 180 % dmg. that's a very significant reduction

Rivens are a cool idea but of course with a stupid catch. you can't keep them forever because de can nerf them as they please.
