I was wondering whats more important in the dice hierarchy... the die, or the multiplier?
So... D6x4 has an average of (12)... would it be better as D8x3? D4x6?
I'd love to build a number online of 'best choices' for die rolls.
Looking at the weapon lists, I see this:
4 = D4x2
6 = D6x2
8 = D4x4
9 = D6x3
12 = D6x4
15 = D6x5
16 = D8x4
18 = D6x6
20 = D10x4
20 = D8x5
24 = D8x6
30 = D10x6
But notice, in once case (Blaster, Heavy[ATZ] and Disruption Field Gun[ATZ]) they use two separate forumlas for an average of 20.
Any suggestions on a decent dice hierarchy (especially for those of us that love simple formulas)?
