    Here's a thread about it from a year ago.

    And one from a few months later.

So on this parse I had 79.4 WDB. So I take my auto attack dps from ACT, 2,799,068 and divide by 179.4, giving me 15,602 dps per point of WDB. (Note: if you use Novelty Card, account for that.)


    I don't play much anymore, so I don't know for sure if it's changed since then. If it has, I'm sure someone will tell us.
    It's only weird if it doesn't work.

    Thx, Hosse.

    From what you're saying, weapon dmg bonus and dps bonus are almost identical. Except that the latter has a slightly diminishing return at high ends. But then I don't understand why the 2 stats are kept separate in the Persona window. WDB should just modify the dps stat.

    Doggoneit, now you're going to make me try and remember. I think they are applied at different places in the damage formula. Like the quote said, WDB is like potency for your weapons, so I think that means it's applied before crits, while DPS mod is applied at the end. Look up some discussions on Potency versus CB to see why that can make a difference. Because, with a 100% crit rate, you had basically the same issue.

    Hopefully snapshot will chime in soon.
