My question is more geared for the mods to see if they can confirm or deny, but I am looking for some clarification based off the JPWIKI and old old topics from 2013.
The article didn't mention these items that seem to be either very popular myths or "common knowledge".
Elemental weakness matching. There is some information on reddit stating the rate of PSE triggers is impacted by killing the enemies with a weapon or technique that matches their elemental weakness. This "feels" accurate to me due to the fact that I almost always max a cross trigger on City Area (everything is weak against Light, all badge weapons are light element) when I am annihilating everything with Cosmo Breaker, but if I am the one cleaning kills on Forest, I rarely ever see a good burst.
Spamming Photon Blasts. There is an old wives tale about Photon blasts also increasing the rate of bursts. Again, anecdotal evidence says it seems like it does, but if that is the case, what is amplifying the trigger? The PB getting the finish blow, or simply their presence? (Asking because I switched to gravity well PB for more Cosmo breaker)
Rare enemy rate up. If you burst from this, is it better to keep progressing to new areas while annihilating the enemies spawning to try and trigger rappies/Tagi silver boy? While cross bursting on PSO2 day, I did not see any rappies really dropping by farming the burst in the same area.
I wanted to seek clarification before I starting advising newer players on "best practices". Of course I am willing to test these theories myself, but I would need others willing to participate controlled testing, which doesn't always work well with random groups.
Final thought: Does exit bursting still work?
