Notes

  • Sombrero vs. Volleyball contains information about when sombrero and volleyball-type familiars are best for stat gains based on familiar weights and monster level.
  • The volleyball's stat gains use random rounding. In cases where the stat gain is not an integer, what actually happens is that an entire stat point is awarded a fraction of the time. For example, a two-pound volleyball grants 2.4 stats, and you could expect to get 3 bonus stats 40% of fights and 2 bonus stats the other 60%.
  • In terms of stat gained via boosting familiar weight vs. boosting ML, each pound grants +0.2 substats, compared to each point of ML granting +0.33 substats, making each pound as 60% effective to each point of ML, but without drawback of increasing monster difficulty.

History

  • Prior to NS13, the volleyball provided weight/4 bonus stats.
  • With the arrival of NS13, the volleyball provided sqrt(weight) bonus stats. Initially, the square root formula was floored, so rounding did not happen. For more information on the new volleyball formula, see this forum thread, and Jick's post indicating the fix (not flooring the result).
  • On May 14, 2014 the volleyball was changed to provide 2+(weight/5) bonus stats.

References

  • This familiar is a reference to the 2000 movie, Cast Away, in which the character played by Tom Hanks is stranded on an island and obtains a volleyball from one the packages he was delivering. He painted a face on the volleyball and named it Wilson. He even spoke to it. To encourage creativity amongst its players, KoL will not let you name your volleyball Wilson. You can, however, use the name Wilson in conjunction with another name. Wiison and WiIson also do not work, due to the visual similarity between a capital I and a lowercase l in the game font.
  • Baden, Brine, Mikasa, Molten, Spalding, and Tachikara are all brands of volleyballs.
