I'm currently having a problem with my lvl 107 buffalo at the moment. I thought that DX would be awesome in boosting Shadow's damage and #of combos for Blazing Strike, so I was gonna go pure DX. But my friend told me that I shouldnt go DX all the way. So, what I did was the first 55 lvls, I put all the bonus points into AP. Then from 56-170, I'd put the points in DX.
Here's where the problem begins. As taken from the wiki, this is shadow's damage formula:
[AP - ((DX - 10) × 24)] × Mag. Ratio
I thought that AP was the Attack power PERCENTAGE, not the real AP stat, but I read a couple of threads and found out it's actually the stat. If I was lvl170 and went DX till then, I would have at least -39 DX with my equips and buffs.. and around 5K AP. That would make my shadow do around 55k damage.
I calculated what my damage would been if I went full AP. Let's just say... A lot higher. Unfortunatly, it took me until now to notice this, and my buff is already lvl 107. Should I continue with the DX till 170.. or switch to AP ASAP
