Damage Calculation
Damage Calculation Overview

This formula will help you calculate exactly how much damage you will deal to a unit.

*Rods deal 0.5x less damage

*Special Weapons deal 1.5x additional damage

Physical Damage

$$ \small {(Unit Atk * Weapon Triangle * Weapon Skill) - (Enemy Def)}$$

Magic Damage

$$ \small {(Unit Atk * Weapon Triangle * Weapon Skill) - (Enemy Res)}$$

Weapon Triangle

  • +20% (Advantage)
  • -20% (Disadvantage)
Damage Calculation Examples
Damage Calculation with Weapon Advantage
Example 1: Damage Calculation with Weapon Advantage

1. 20% of unit's Atk from weapon advantage.

2. Add result from step 1 to unit's Atk.

3. Subtract enemy Def from result of step 2.

$${(36 * 0.2 + 36) - 17 = 43}$$

For weapon disadvantages, subtract 20% of the Unit Atk instead.

Damage Calculation with Weapon Advantage + Weapon Skill
Damage Calculation with Weapon Advantage + Weapon Skill

1. 50% additional damage from Weapon Skill

2. Add result from Step 1 to unit's Atk.

3. Calculate 20% of result from Step 2 (Weapon Advantage).

4. Add result from Step 3 to the result from Step 2.

5. Subtract enemy Def from the result of Step 4.

$${(37 * 0.5 + 37) * 0.2 + (37 * 0.5 + 37) - 18 = 49 }$$
*Round to the nearest 10th at the end

When calculating both Weapon Advantage and Weapon Skill, the order of calculation is important. Always calculate Weapon Skill and then Weapon Advantage.
