I’ve started a new thread for this, as the last one got a bit convoluted, and it’s easy to start fresh than carrying on with that. I’d like to thank people for the feedback they gave me about how I could improve my experiment, in particular the choice of the second weapon stating information more clearly and using the test dummy. I would of liked to do a more practical example but this seems to be the consensus on the best way to do it.
In both these examples I will using max alliance buff, Shifta drink, and shift buff. Both rods are lightning based, it doesn’t make a huge difference for forces as we have a skill in our tree that means we only lose 5% element even when we are using a different element.
In the first example I’m using a nem sage + 35 with 185 attack buff, and 3 units with 150 attack buff. I know in the previous post I said 200, but I thought the tech from timed affixes worked everywhere, turns out that’s not the case. 2 of the units are clifard and the other is union, here’s some images so you can see my gear and my stats, and after all gear and buffs I’m sitting at 5026 tech
Here a screenshot of my damage with this setup against the test dummy.
In my second example I’m using a raven sage +35 with only a 15 attack affix on it. It has the same damage potential as the nemesis and is for all intensive purposes the same weap. The units I am using are an un affixed Brissa set. One thing to note the two clifard units and union unit give a total of 95 tech between them, where has the Brissa set only gives 70 tech, but the raven sage also has 15 tech on it, so it works out to be only a 10 tech difference, a small difference but still worth noting. Here’s an image of my stats with the raven and Brissa set, and as you can see I’ve got 4399 tech after all gear and buffs
Here’s a screenshot of my damage with this set up on the test dummy
Has you can see that’s a damage difference of 31,477. So that is the potential damage difference between affixed and un-affixed gear. Now let me be clear I don’t care if you have affixed gear or not, has long as I can finish the runs I’ll be happy, this is purely to show the difference, as their has been a lot of debate but no real evidence to support either way. Also I apologise about the quality of some of the photos my Xbox was being difficult about uploading them, so I had to use my phone. I’ll try to upload better quality photos later
