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)

## Introduction

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**

## Examples

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)

625+375=1000

900+90=990

C at level 2

750+375=1125

1050+90=1140

C at level 3

875+375=1250

1200+90=1290

Let’s now say you have level 3 C and 260 crystal power

Non-empowered C

Base damage+ 100% CP per hit 175+260=435

435*5 (all five hits)=2175

Empowered C:

1200+312=1512

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!

As usual we added this to our hidden stats and bugs page
