The new Eletta weapons all have...

Magic Accuracy+30
"Magic Atk. Bonus"+10
Magic Damage+217
Magic Accuracy skill +231

Malevolence has...

Magic Accuracy+35
"Magic Atk. Bonus"+44
Magic Damage+118
Magic Accuracy skill +201

I'm not a number crunching pro. At what point does "Magic Damage" outweigh "MAB"?

+34 MAB vs +99MDMG per weapon

MAB normally wins unless your very starved on WSC or have ridiculous MAB

Base Magical WS Damage = ((152 + floor((WeaponLevel-99)*2.45) + WSC) * fTP + dSTAT + Magic Damage (Statistic)

Damage = Base Magical WS Damage × Magic damage multipliers

Assuming il119 weapon on TF at 1K TP (Gastro for 1250) and 350? AGI (guessing, don't know how much is standard for you guys right now) against a mob with 200 INT.

fTP = 4.541015625

BDMG = ((201 + WSC) * fTP) + dStat + MDMG
DMG = BDMG * mDiff * WSD * Weather * SDT
(201 + 350) * 4.541015625 = 2502 + 300 + MDMG.

2920 vs 3019 or a 3.3% difference, 34 MAB on a low MAB job like RNG will be far more important.

So with a WS like True Flight where your mod is 100% AGI and your dSTAT is also dAGIx2 on low MAB jobs like RNG / COR MAB tends to win over in most cases. Now these weapons aren't at max yet and I suspect another update or two will have them at 30 MAB, so lets see then.

Only eyeballing, but it looks like malevolence still beats these ambu weps at 250 skill stage for TF unless you need macc?

In terms of raw damage I believe it still does. However, it looks to be a potentially good offhand for dyna wave3.

Personally did some testing using the Naegling against the Malevolence, Both a high aug and also a crapy aug'd one and even the crapy one was still beating out the Pulse weapon. Kinda sad, it had some potential too. ;.; Back to trying to get perfect augs again.
