- Shiradi procs use the spellpower of the proc type, not the originating spell type.
- Maximize and Empower from the originating spell do add spellpower to shiradi procs.
- Maximize and Empower must be on the originating spell - having global toggles on and originating spell toggles "always off" doesn't work.
There's a lot of "maximize / empower obviously do / don't affect shiradi procs" if you go back and search the forums. It's all completely anecdotal.
So I went and spent a few minutes with Warlock Sobrien and pasted some combat logs into excel. This data is far from perfect - in particular crits make some things hard to count - but it's actual data.
And it clearly indicates that maximize / empower metas do affect shiradi damage procs.
Magic Missile (the spell, not the SLA) only, until Epic Elite Sobrien is dead.
Prism off, only base shiradi sonic procs and force procs.
Moderately geared level 28 16w/2m/2f shiradi.
2 runs with no metas, 2 runs with max + empower.
Crits are impossible to classify correctly from the combat log; the crit indication does not print in any reliable relation to the effect that critted. I had to plot the data and guess at where the crit cutoff was.Code:Total missiles 1476 Total nonmeta 885 Total meta 591 Missile nonmeta mean dam 54.32 Missile meta mean dam 82.58 Missile difference 1.52 Total nonmeta sonic procs 60 Total meta sonic procs 38 Sonic nonmeta noncrit mean dam 239.55 Sonic meta noncrit mean dam 349.30 Sonic difference 1.46 Total nonmeta force procs 54 Total meta force procs 40 Force nonmeta noncrit mean dam 758.34 Force meta noncrit mean dam 847.00 Force difference 1.12
EDIT1: No free lunch on metas with procs. Results indicate metas have to be on for the originating spell.
2 runs, same general conditions as previous tests.
Global max + empower toggle on, Magic Missile max + empower local toggle "always off".
