During the current raid farming I noticed that my Sanzang’s NP damage varies quite heavily every run, even though I use the same party, apply same buffs and use same supports every time. One run her NP hits for around 370k (or even 310k if buster down debuff is applied), the other time for 450k.
Now, I know that there is supposedly some slight variation in damage output and that you won’t get identical numbers every time you use the same attack. But I wouldn’t call 50-70k a “slight difference”.
If the party composition doesn’t change, the applied buffs are the same and if we don’t count the “buster down” debuff as a steady recurring variable, the only explanation I can find for this damage spread is that the order of applying buffs might be the reason?
So, does the order of applying buffs affect the final damage?
