WILL DESTROYER ASTRAL & DMG

Is the percentage dmg applied after or before opponent defense deduction?
Greetings,

About the Will Destroyer Astral, which at lvl 5 yellow/orange removes crit dmg and applies 25% more dmg to you basic attacks, is this 25% added before the defense is deducted from the dmg or is it after?

Because there is a big difference, if it is before or after. According to other sources, the formula for dmg dealt to your opponent is:

Dmg dealt = (Attack - Opponent Defense) / 2
If your Opponent defense is greater than your attack then:
Dmg dealt = Attack*0.1 (which is only 10% of the dmg you do)

Meaning that if someone has 8k of PATK, and opponent has 5k of PDEF, then:

Dmg Dealt = (8,000 - 5,000) / 2 = 1,500
with floating dmg ---> 1,350 to 1,650

So if the Will destroyer comes in effect Before the Defense is applied:

Dmg Dealt = (8,000*1.25 - 5,000) / 2 = 2,500
with floating dmg ---> 2,250 to 2,750

But if it's applied After the defense is applied:

Dmg Dealt = (8,000 - 5,000) / 2 = 1,500 -----> 1,500*1.25 = 1,875
with floating dmg ---> 1,687 to 2,062

BIG DIFFERENCE

Anyways, hope many can help me answer this, and before hand, THANK YOU, for reading this and answering this topic.

Sincerely,
~Sithlord~

This is a good question. I've been meaning to mess around with astrals and figure this out but haven't gotten around to it yet.

Without doing tests and just looking at the wording of the astral, it specifically says that " damage increased by x% " and not attack increased by x%.

"Damage" itself is calculated by reference to the defense of the opponent. Before this calculation happens, the figure you're looking at isn't damage it's just plain attack stats. There are already Mysticallity and Force astrals which increase those attack stats which are distinguishable.



tldr- the astral most probably applies after the deduction of defense not before.
