    Triple Attack Damage

    I was wondering if anybody knows how this stat works, I haven't been able to find any testing on it. I'm referring to items like Hetairoi Ring and Toutatis's Cape that have Triple Attack Damage +x on them.

    Also Chiner's Belt +1 seems to have a similar but possibly different stat.

    Somebody on FFXIAH said the cape is a straight +20% damage to melee swings that triple attack, but doesn't seem to do anything on WS, tested with assassin's charge.

    Thanks. I made a post there, I'm guessing it is still applied to weaponskills but the way it's applied makes it much less significant (similar to SA/TA enhancing gloves)

    It's a percentage increase in the damage. If Raider's +2 set is taking as a precedent (which it may or may not be), the damage boost only applies to the second and third swings of the triple attack. Now that there's more available gear, perhaps it's testable.

    It doesn't seem to be a valid precedent as the testing indicates it did proc on the first strike. My guess would be something like the following.

    Original: WSD = floor(( Weapon Base Damage + fSTR + WSC ) × fTP)
    New: WSD = floor(( Weapon Base Damage + fSTR + WSC ) × fTP) + floor((Weapon Base Damage + fSTR) * TAD)

    I don't have any data to support this though, just speculation based on what's in that other thread.

    DA damage does proc on the first swing and doesn't affect WS damage, if you prefer that reason.

    Also, Kukuk's testing showed only the second and third hit were affected by Raider's set and Ihina's testing showed that WSD was not affected. I don't know why Ihina's Sneak Attack vs. level 0 damage would be affected by Assassin's charge, but I also don't know why he has a 1k damage range against level 0 monsters to begin with.


    I bet it is +20% damage on the second and third hit of normal melee rounds.

    Well I suppose that could be true too (not enough data to rule out the possibility.) I might do some testing later tonight if I can manage to get around to it.

    Went around hitting lvl 0 mobs for a bit, highest non crit I got was 494. Immediately after equipping the mantle I got 595. So yeah, it applies to the first hit (and seems to be applied to fSTR as well but I am not 100% sure.)

    4 sneak attacks with chiner's belt +1/hetaroi ring/toutatis's cape

    2297
    2385
    2982 (Triple Attack)
    3001 (Assassin's Charge)

    Seems it also applies to SATA terms as well

    My skinflayer is D125. With 109+146 DEX and all of the triple attack damage stuff, Wasp Sting did

    1354
    1348
    1361 (Assassin's Charge)
    1308
    1356 (Assassin's Charge)

    With sneak attack

    3715
    3650
    3646
    3698
    3616
    3621


    The max predicted is 1368, not sure how much with Sneak Attack. Based on this it doesn't look like it's applied on weaponskill hits in any way (even just to DMG + fSTR), might be good to test another weaponskill to verify.
