And after the previous post, we are back at it on the new patch! Let’s see if Shin’s C now works correctly after the bug fix (spoiler, it doesn’t, or I wouldn’t be here writing this)
So, in the previous update, we said that Shin’s C consist of 5 hits, 150/250/350 (level 1-3) + 100% CP rate per hit. This was higher than the damage stated in-game.
The base damage has now been fixed:
125/150/175 per hit
Which is equivalent to the 625/750/875 stated in-game.
The problem however comes on the CP rate, which is still 100% per hit.
In other words, 500% (considering all 5 hits) CP rate of the non-empowered C vs 120% cp rate of the empowered C
If you have enough crystal, the non-empowered C will still do more damage than the empowered one due to the much higher CP rate
Let’s say you bought 75 crystal power:
75*5 (500% CP rate)=375
75*1.2 (120% CP rate)=90
C at level 1 (base damage+CP)
C at level 2
C at level 3
Let’s now say you have level 3 C and 260 crystal power
Base damage+ 100% CP per hit 175+260=435
435*5 (all five hits)=2175
You can see it in the video below:
Play the video at 0.5 speed if you want to see the damage done.
As you can see, Vox takes 217 damage per hit from the non-empowered C
175 (base damage)+260 CP (2 shatterglass)=435
Since Vox has 100 shield=435/2=217.5
Since Vox got hit 5 times, the total damage he took was 1087.5
1087.5*2 (because Vox took half damage with 100 shield)=2175, the number we calculated earlier! 😛
In the video you can also see the empowered C doing 756 damage. Let’s calculate that too:
1200+312 (120% cp rate, 260 CP)=1512
Since Vox has 100 Shield: 1512/2=756, the number shown in the video.
How much crystal is required for the non-empowered C to hit harder than the empowered one?
Level 1 C= Once you have 73 crystal you do more damage with the non-empowered C
Level 2 C= Once you have 79 crystal you’ll do more damage with the non-empowered C
Level 3 C= Once you have 86 crystal you’ll do more damage with the non-empowered C
You can use the empowered B to root then throw at them the non-empowered (and stronger) C, they won’t be able to dodge it!
