Enter your IED stats to determine your effective damage output with the MapleStory IED Calculator.

## IED Calculation Formula

The IED (Ignore Enemy Defense) calculation helps players optimize their damage output in MapleStory by considering how much of the enemy’s defense is ignored. The basic formula used to calculate effective damage is:

Effective Damage = Base Damage * (1 - Total IED / 100)

Variables:

- Effective Damage is the actual damage dealt after considering the IED effect (%)
- Base Damage is the damage value before applying IED (%)
- Total IED is the percentage of enemy defense ignored (%)

To calculate the effective damage, multiply the base damage by the result of subtracting the total IED percentage from 100%.

## What is IED Calculation?

IED Calculation refers to the process of determining how much of the enemy’s defense is ignored, which impacts the overall damage output. It involves understanding the relationship between your total IED and base damage to optimize your damage potential.

## How to Calculate Effective Damage?

The following steps outline how to calculate effective damage using the provided formula:

- First, determine your base damage before applying any IED effects.
- Next, find your total IED percentage which represents how much enemy defense is ignored.
- Use the formula above: Effective Damage = Base Damage * (1 – Total IED / 100).
- Calculate the effective damage by inserting your values into the formula.
- Compare your result with the values calculated using the calculator above to verify accuracy.

**Example Problem:**

Try this example to understand the IED calculation:

Base Damage = 1000%

Total IED = 30%
