tl;dr
- NO, FLAT DEFENSE PIERCING DAMAGE DOESN'T EXIST, NOT IN THE -BLADE TOMES AND GLACIES/IGNIS/VENGEANCE PROC LINES AT LEAST.
- BLADES AREN'T FLAT DAMAGE.
- PROCS AREN'T DEFENSE PIERCING (they are however WTA/WTD ignoring due to when they're added).
- YOU CAN'T DO ALL THE MULTIPLICATION IN ONE STEP BECAUSE YOU'LL PROBABLY END UP WITH A LARGER MODIFIER ON YOUR DAMAGE THAN THE GAME WILL ACTUALLY GIVE YOU.
- CALCULATE WEAPON EFFECTIVENESS BONUS FIRST, THEN DO NORMAL WTA/WTD CALCULATIONS FROM THAT.

There, I think I summed everything up, what do you think? 'v'

Good guide. Sticky requested. You'd think people would have figured this out on their own after so long but I guess math is hard. I was able to figure alll of this so yay me.

I have a weird situation though. Explain this please:

This is a arena battle, so no weird units with weird stats in the tower. My Julia vs enemy Julia. 1st pic is how much damage we do to each other. 2nd shows stats of enemy Julia. I can assure you both Julia's have same attack and res, yet enemy does more damage than me. No units near each other to provide buffs. So how did this happen?

Did you, er, perchance have your Julia's +Res passive at only +1?
Destroyer of aircraft.
Nope. Like I said, they both have the same atk and res. Only reason I took a picture is because of the oddity that they have the same stats yet did different damage.

I just looked at my Julia right now. I've used her for a long time so I don't need to change skills around. Of course, no skills have been changed since that battle, and she still has the same stats.

At first I was wondering what the heck "Weapon Effectiveness" meant, since I was pretty sure natural Weapon Triangle was straight up added to Triangle Adept or Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald weapons, not separately. Like, did you mean the raw effectiveness of the weapon itself, Damage(Mt), or in-combat buffs/debuffs attached to weapons?

But then I realized you meant the "Effective Against [unit type]" bonus damage. I guess technically that's only on the weapon itself (discounting Svalinn Shield), at least so far.

Oh hey it turns out that Naga gives +2 Def/Res when attacked.

So your situation would have been backwards if you let the other Julia attack first.

Check her tome. It gives +2 Def/Res when attacked.

Well damn. That explains it. I always forget Naga gives def and res in addition to Dragon slaying. Thanks peeps.
