Is it based off cap? Which is about 700 atk and 1000 mag right?

What about say you have a 100-150 stat weapon with a boost vs a 300+ stat synergy weap with no boosts? When should I determine which is better?

This is something I've never figured out. Can't wait for an answer.
Yep, I live in Idaho.

It's all about that cap. Can you reach it with magicite + boosts while sacrificing that 100? If you at like 5 or 20 attack of the cap when all is done then that elemental boost is better. If you are going to fall significantly short (100-150 or more) you better go for the higher stat.

I usually aim for 500ish with bad +element because I know I will be hitting cap with +shout and +100 ATK from magicite.

First get your magicites' stats: https://i.redd.it/8gyues0ai2101.png

Next, figure out the boon level. For example, one Atk10 and two Atk15 = 15 + 15/2 + 10/4 = 15 + 7.5 + 2.5 = 25. Make sure you round up all fractions at the end. This would give 25% of the magicite attack.

Third, take your character with their strongest weapon equipped, multiply by party buffs (Shout = 1.5), then add the magicite contribution. Anything over 805, divide by 2 (850 -> 827.5).

Now, repeat the third step with the elemental boosting weapon. Don't forget to divide anything over 805 by 2. Then take this result and multiply by 1.1.

Go with the bigger number.

+50 mag/attack is when I go for the stat and get rid of the en-element. I notice the damage difference is true if you don't feel like doing the math.

I usually never go for synergy on armor though and always en-ele (try en-ele with attack/magic bonus if possible though).

Edit: I don't know how true of a method this is but it's just a little thing I always did.

That is, by a wide margin, the most succinct way I've seen this explained. Can I add this to my copypasta list, please?
Odd.

Sure, just please double check that I'm right. If you think it looks good, use it.
