Add that shadow gear, black ribbon, peuz set and a maestro with strings and we've got a 320% boost sonic wave.
1,375% (at max lv) * 320% = 4400%. (edited.....................)
If you use a weapon that has two slots and enchant, you may add 40% ranged boost.
That will be 6160% at a 2sec CD (or at best 1sec cd if you have 100% delay reduc).
*EDIT* It's actually decent, but still faces the same -_-ty 2sec CD.
Sure, I personally use sonic wave against bako, but that's out of a lack of better choice for RK. I pretty much still think sonic wave's too pathetic with a 1,325% modify for 2second cd. Maybe if they changed the CD entirely to aftercast delay like dragon breath, I might actually think it's decent.
A skill-to-skill comparison to show how this isn't great:
A roller cutter GX does 525% per spin, into a 2625% AOE per sec, 5250% per 2sec. That hasnt even added EDP-which will probably make this comparison even worse off the chart. Skills such as cross impact, sonic blow and soul breaker have their formula halved while EDP, but not rolling cutter.
I haven't even brought in ranger or genes into the discussion, with AS, cart cannon and AD And you know what, none of these require shadow gears to be considered decent :v
