Magical Breeze plate test, works exactly as I expected, giving a straight +20% FD (Azure I told you xD, devs ARE stupid...)
The B plate in the first screenshot shows the Cheating Point -CD change
Guided Missiles was used for the Magical Breeze test. Ignore the comment posted by the topic creator, he doesn't know what his own test result meant.
He didn't use broken weapons, I am taking an average figure (that I can make out) from each of the 3 screenshots.
First Screenshot (Raw GM): 21920
Second Screenshot (GM + MB [non-plated]): 25750
Third Screenshot (GM + MB [plated]): 29350
25750/21920 = 17.47% increase in damage
1.41/1.2 = 17.5% increase in damage
29350/21920 = 33.9% increase in damage
1.61/1.2 = 34.17% increase in damage
Conclusion - Magical Breeze now plate adds a straight +20% FD on top of the value that Magical Breeze was already providing.
What this means for Artillery players
At 0% FD, we currently have at least +18% FD, up to 38% on a damage plated skill (solo, ignoring Injector EX and Sadism Pleasure)
1.58/1.38 = 14.49%
At 100% FD, with +2 on Magical Breeze, we have +124% FD, up to 144% on a damage plated skill (solo, ignoring Injector EX and Sadism Pleasure)
2.64/2.44 = 8.197%
This means that all Artillery will get a boost of minimum of ~8.2% boost to their damage, and up to ~14.5%, all from one plate, for damage plated skills, slightly higher for non plated skills. Is it a must plate? Is there anything you can plate to get that much of a DPS increase?? ^^
