Steps Required (Mechanics)

From The Walkscape Walkthrough

Steps Required is an attribute that removes or adds the listed amount of steps from/to the activity you are doing. This can be great if you have capped out your work efficiency!

Calculation to Apply Steps Required

  1. The calculation for Work Efficiency or Traveling Efficiency is applied first.
  2. The calculated number of required steps has the Steps Required attribute value applied.
    • -X steps required reduces the amount of steps for the activity. This can decrease the number of steps below the work efficiency cap.
    • +X steps required increases the amount of steps for the activity. This can increase the number of step to above it's base value.
  3. The new required step value is shown.

Activity Example with a Negative Steps Required

If we want to Fry a Perch while wearing Oven Mittens at Cooking level 30.

  1. Oven Mittens give a -2.0 steps required while cooking.
  2. First, we do the work efficiency calculation to find out the number of steps required with our Cooking levels and Work Efficiency.
    • The base work for frying a perch is 70.
    • We have a total of 1.3625 cooking efficiency from our cooking levels which reduces the work to 52 steps after rounding
    • We subtract the steps required attribute from the steps per action. 52 steps per action - 2.0 steps required = 50 steps per action.
  3. The final steps required is 50 steps per action to fry a perch with only oven mittens equipped.

Traveling Example with a Negative Steps Required Item

If we want to do travel from Barbantok to the Nomad Woods while wearing Medieval Sneakers at Agility level 30.

  1. Medieval Sneakers give a -5.0 steps required while traveling.
  2. First, we do the Traveling Efficiency calculation to find out the number of steps required with our Agility levels and Work Efficiency.
    • The Base Distance for the Route between Barbantok and the Nomad Woods is 342 steps.
    • We have a total of 1.30 traveling efficiency which reduces the distance to 270 after rounding giving 27 steps per section of the distance.
    • We subtract the steps required attribute from the steps per action. 27 steps per action - 5.0 steps required = 25 steps per action.
  3. The final steps required is 25 steps per action between Barbantok and the Nomad Wood for a total traveling distance of 250 steps.

Traveling Example with a Positive Steps Required Item

If we want to do travel from Barbantok to the Nomad Woods while wearing Travelers Kit at Agility level 30.

  1. The Travelers Kit gives a +10.0 steps required while traveling.
  2. First, we do the Traveling Efficiency calculation to find out the number of steps required with our Agility levels and Work Efficiency.
    • The Base Distance for the Route between Barbantok and the Nomad Woods is 342 steps.
    • We have a total of 1.30 traveling efficiency which reduces the distance to 270 after rounding giving 27 steps per section of the distance.
    • We add the steps required attribute from the steps per action. 27 steps per action + 10.0 steps required = 37 steps per action.
  3. The final steps required is 37 steps per action between Barbantok and the Nomad Wood for a total traveling distance of 370 steps.
