Let's put a fail Fire Attribute percentage [ 150% ] and have the bunny naked at level 201 with Pumping Heart + Adrenaline. [ No Desperate Rally because that requires 20% or lower HP ]
WITHOUT any Fire Attr: AP × Magnification Ratio
WITH Fire Attr: AP × (Magnification Ratio + Fire Attr) × MA ÷ 100
[ Magnification Ratio at 530% ]
As you can see, it solely depends on whether or not you will use Fire Attribute into the equation. If you don't use any Fire Attributes, Flaming Fist becomes a physical attack and doesn't consider MA into the equation. Using Fire Attributes mean MA is factored into it and it becomes a magical attack.
Let's do some raw math damage.
Level 201 4411: 1472AP, 100MA
1472 x ( 5.3 + 1.5 ) x 100 / 100 = 10,009.6
Level 201 4114: 1472AP, 62MA
1472 x ( 5.3 + 1.5 ) x 62 / 100 = 6,205.9
You can see that with more MA, you have a higher Flaming Fist. The problem with this is that gears can easily make a 4114 obtain just the same [ or even more ] AP and MA, thus creating more damage.
Gears play the biggest role in your character skills. Stats by itself only helps a little.
Has anyone though about this build? Probably but they didn't follow through with it.
