I’m asking about something specific here, but we’ll explore more of it later.
I was farming a stage and using my E2 S2 Eyja. At M3, it has the description of “Deals 370% of ATK Arts damage in the next attack”
Her attack at my level and trust is 686.
In this stage, there is an enemy that has 60 RES.
With me so far? This is a lot of set-up.
I place Eyja, one of those Shieldguards is in range, she does her attack boosted by her S2…and it does 796 damage (you see it bc it shows the number above them).
So does RES reduce damage by 60%? And not a flat 60? That doesn’t make sense, since for physical defense those guys have 1300 and they can’t reduce damage by 1300%. So how does damage work?
(And this can be expanded to how does physical damage work, since someone like Exu does deal barely any but some damage to them and her attack isn’t over 1300; I think I’ve been told there’s a minimum?)
