The reason why ATK% is not as good as it sound (on goblets/circlets) is because it only applies to BASE ATTACK (Character Base ATK + Weapon ATK).
Example: Different Scenarios with Damage% and ATK% for Goblet for Xiao
Each calculation is done without including critical hits and enemies. Each scenario’s artifacts apply to both goblets.
Scenario 1 – Only Plume
Scenario 2 – Plume and Sands (ATK%)
Scenario 3 – Plume, Sands, and Substats (ATK% and FLATATK)
|Scenario||Goblet 1 (ATK%, 46.6%)||Goblet 2 (Damage%, 46.6%)||Total Difference|
