If not mistaken the EX finisher, Deathflare, damage are calculated by 35% of total SUM (divided by 5 for each hit) damage during EX mode. Is the USB opener itself also included in the calculation? I tried using USB back to back, the opener did 7x5100 so about 35700 damage. Then Deathflare did 5x8700 so that's about 43500 damage. How come it actually stronger than the USB opener itself?

Wait, wasn't someone just talking about whether or not Alph USB factored in all previous summon damage? I'm confused now.

@kwonshin Here is a copy and paste of the post @Target_Master linked you.

I went and tested. Deathflare from the first USB does not benefit from the entry damage of the second. The second USB does benefit from the Deathflare from the first.
Here's a video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qUDOMLWIVA0

#Entry Damage Deathflare Damage Deathflare "Sees"
1 18600 6510 18600
2 33261 13920 39771 (33261 + 6510)
3 33337 16540 47257 (33337 + 13920)

bah spacing looks like s*** and won't reflect me manually spacing it. W/E

Is the Deathflare dmg always 35% of total SUM damage dealt? Or does RM etc increases it further? i.e is it a fixed damage that can not be changed?

@Axel7174

I think you're probably referring to my post.
I quoted another users post from the Midgardsormr topic where they said that it counted *all* the damage; however, after doing some digging (because I felt that sounded too good to be true) I discovered that what was stated was incorrect and edited my post to reflect that.

Yes. So using the much more Summon damage RM (and legend materia) makes it stack up very quickly.

I promise the audio quality did not sound that bad when I watched that on my phone >_>
I should have done more testing when it came out, but I'm pretty sure there's also an additional factor for stacking deathflare. When you chain cast them with a dedicated entruster, you're basically guaranteed to start capping eventually; and I'm not sure exactly why.

Ahhh ok, haha, didn't realize that it was you. Yeah. I just saw it was in the Alph diving thread.

Ok, this makes sense now.
