Another smallish sample. Mourioche (~269 DEF 82 VIT) this time. Average WS damage was ~1460. All WSs performed at 300%.
max pDif: 1.992
min pDif: 1.192
average pDif: 1.592
WSC: 50%STR (based off of my last test)
fTP: 4.0 (based off of my last test)
So, if the formula is:
(Weapon Damage + fSTR + WSC) * fTP * pDif * 1.25 = WSDMG
Odd, got only 1313 from that...
After messing with the equation a bit and got it to work at 65%STR WSC. So, maybe 60%? Or I'm completely off as far as the fTP goes.
I need a larger sample size. :x
Some WS have a pDIF bonus. Your pdif could be much larger than you think it is. We've been asking SE for a pDIF bonus style ws like Y/G/K for a while. This WS honestly so far seems to do similar damage(have yet to try it against any HNM, as our ls is on a leveling break).
Maybe try on crabs, and see if you notice it hitting more than it should?
Edit: I only did an extremely small sample, but I did a few SA 300 WS vs level 1s, got between 1985 and 2143
Weapon Fay Lance +5 DMG, 95
fSTR capped, 18.
Lets see if 50% STR and 4.0 is close to mine. My pDIF max should be 3.15, but didn't do enough to know if I reached it.
(95 + 18 + 52) * 4 * 3.15 = 2079.
That falls a bit short, (I didn't have gorget on, but even with Gorget it should have maxed out at 2130). Maybe 60% STR is right? 2217 max (vs non piercing level 1) possible then.
Second edit: if the fTP is 3.5 instead of 4.0, 50% STR and 50% VIT also fit with my max, at 2160 max. On yours, it fits but just a bit high, unless a pdif bonus is in effect(something like 1.15 times or a straight + .3 or something?).
