LR: Blade Waves
» Research

Post: #1

After a while of testing normal laser blades, wave-only blades, and SYURA, I have come to the following conclusions:

1. O07-PRIMER affects both the blade wave and the blade strike itself.

2. O04-GOLGI do NOT affect blade waves, even those coming from wave-only blades and SYURA.

3. Blade aptitude DO affect the damage of the blade wave; although the difference between say, a blade aptitude of 67 (CR-A75A) and 110 (A08-DRILL2) is negligible, the blade aptitude of 133 (YA10-LORIS) do more than 110.

This is what I used to test the attack power of each blade wave, launched head-on:
Attacker: Heavy biped, A08-DRILL2, blade aptitude 110 or SYURA, blade aptitude ?, equipped with PRIMER.
Defender: Heavy quadruple, EN Def 2170, AP 8495.

Stats:
Spoiler:

CR-WL69LB
Average damage: 87
Attack power (est): 366

WL01LB-ELF (Not tested because of difficulty of connecting all three or a single wave)

CR-WL79LB2
Average damage: 121
Attack power (est): 508

CR-WL88LB3
Average damage: 168
Attack power (est): 706

YWL03LB-TAROS
Average damage: 137
Attack power (est): 576

WL14LB-ELF2
Average damage: 81
Attack power (est): 340

WL-MOONLIGHT
Average damage: 205
Attack power (est): 861

FUHJIN

Edit 1: Added part about SYURA and optional part.

Edit 2: Added estimated attack power of each blade.

Great info here. Thanks for testing. Will be helpful for that KOB tourney. Smile

IIRC from Silent Line, the AC's blade swing (horizontal or diagonal), which also affects the damage, is also affected by the weight category of its core and arms.

And that is why I would like to swap the giant wave explosion of LB3 with the ELF3 (and nothing screams broken like the firepower of a large rocket that is infinitely spammable and could be pocketed)! Yep, I am well aware of the difference in blade damage by different frame parts, hence the usage of a single AC in the test. Laughing

Just as speculation though, the SYURA arms should have a blade aptitude of 100, if that number is a percentage of the damage done by the blade coupled with the arm (where is that old thread anyway?).
