    Distract/Frazzle Values Post Feb 2017 Update + QD Testing

    Wanted to find out the new values for Distract after the update. So I shouted and found a RDM named Geriond to help. It was nice that he had just about every piece of enfeebling gear to test this in PvP.

    We know Distract and Frazzle share the same values from a Dev Post in the past.

    Data:
    Spoiler: show

    134 Target MND, Caster MND 307

    No potency gear used.

    Skill__-Eva__Eva1 > Eva2
    610 - 130 eva 491 > 361
    609 - 129 eva 491 > 362
    608 - 129 eva 491 > 362
    607 - 129 eva 491 > 362
    605 - 128 eva 491 > 363
    604 - 128 eva 491 > 363
    603 - 128 eva 491 > 363
    602 - 127 eva 491 > 364
    601 - 127 eva 491 > 364
    600 - 127 eva 491 > 364
    590 - 124 eva 491 > 367
    580 - 121 eva 491 > 370
    570 - 118 eva 491 > 373
    560 - 115 eva 491 > 376
    550 - 112 eva 491 > 379
    540 - 110 eva 491 > 381
    530 - 107 eva 491 > 384


    Testing if dMND had changed
    +0 dMND 307 > 307
    610 -120 eva 639 > 519

    +50 dMND 307 > 257
    610 -130 eva 585 > 455

    Other data for funsies

    582 +24 potency - 151 eva 491 > 340
    582 +24 potency + sabo (w/gloves) - 306 eva 491 > 185
    568 +30 potency - 150 eva 491 > 341


    While I was recording the data points and throwing them back, Geroid said the new formula is:

    [Floor(6/21)(Enfeebling Skill - 190)] + Floor(dMND/5); where dMND/5 caps at 0 and 10.

    The only change from the old formula was that the numerator was previously a 4.

    However, while Frazzle and Distract cap at the same values, according to the aforementioned Dev post there is a cap of 625 enfeebling skill listed for frazzle and a 610 listed for distract. So the formula for frazzle must be different in some minor way, the old formula there was copy paste from the distract page. I kept it with a new value and a verification tag for now.

    ----
    Then I shouted for a COR to test a few things with QD out including if it affects distract and thus frazzle.

    Stronk answered my yell and came to shoot me in the face. I also made Carrotchan and Hawksmoor come along cuz waifu and bestie.

    QD Conclusions:
    • Distract (and thus Frazzle) are not affected via QD. My evasion didnt change after Ice Shot.
    • Burn is still -13 INT and QD enhanced it by -4 the first time and then -2 more the second time for a measly -19 INT. Better than nothing, but seriously, why haven't the values changed from level 75?
    • The duration of silence was not increased via wind shot.
    • Dia III can only reach Dia IV with light shot, the second shot does nothing.
    • Dia II does reach Dia IV with two light shots (was curious after seeing Dia III)

    I didn't test Angon or Tenebral Crush with wind shot or any shots with Impact.

    I also didn't test Avatars obviously or the potent -INT from BLUs Searing Tempest.

    Curious if QD works with gravity and its movement speed reduction too. Also interested in verifying Prothescars 2011 test of Earth Shot not affecting Slow II.

    Overall this answers some questions, and I will go update the wiki now.

    P.S:
    Distract and Frazzle now last 5 minutes.

    The update notes said only the tier 3 were changing potencies. I tested angon a long time ago and it do anything. Nor did like any jug pet debuff I tried. QD is really hit or miss on enhancing

    I know, outside of all tiers having the duration enhanced.

    Did I give the impression otherwise?


    Safe to say QD won't work on any SMN stuff then either.

    Ah didn't read thoroughly enough. When I saw Distract I assumed well Distract and didn't check the numbers to see it was clearly higher tier.
