Before start, what is ‘Capacitive Armature’ ?
When I saw this skill card description at first time, I thought “Oh, so this is chain lightning like thing in other RPG games.”. But no, It’s different.
(1) Actually, this ‘chain lightning’ always hits only two additional targets.
In this picture, you can see total three targets are damaged by Iron Bear. number 1 target is hit by railgun laser, number 2 and 3 targets are hit by chain lightning. Interesting thing is number 1 target is not hit by chain lightning damage.(2775 dmg in picture.)
If you want hit number 1 target (with chain lightning) too, it needs there is no third target. Then, chain lightning damages number 1 target and number 2 target.
Or number 1 target is alone, you need close to target for chain lightning be occurred. Then chain lightning is occurred between you and number 1 target. Don’t worry, chain lightning doesn’t hurt you.
(2) Chain lightning damages enemies 5 times(ticks).
25K dmg is railgun laser. (thick red square)
17K dmg is chain lightning. (thin red squares)
3013 dmg is status effect.
(For reference, original video)
Now let’s look at skill card description again and calculate.
‘-30%’ means 70% of dmg, right? and I told you it hits 5 times. 70%*5 times=350%.
So can say splinter damage is +350%. Not the -30%.
This is mechanism and why that Capcitive Armature can erase enemies on battle field. …And you will hate this part. I think it needs nerf…or remake? just like general chain lightning.(like can damage number 1 target properly too and weaker than original railgun laser dmg). Or just fix skill card description? …or nothing. Well, that is just my thought.
Thank you for watching, now I have to write(ctrl C, ctrl V) this on 2k support.
