Sources of cap up

Our Grea (Summer)'s EMP total:

The standard Damage cap for charge attacks is 1.68M so when Grea (Summer) reaches her C.A. cap she should deal:

  • 1.68M * (1 + 26%) = 2.12M damage

Without specific EMP or rings, Aglovale only enjoys a passive 20% C.A. cap up when affected by Status WaterAtkUp.pngWater ATK UpWater ATK is boosted
from Skill charge attack.png Silberne Welt450%Massive Water damage to a foe. (20% boost to C.A. specsC.A. damage and C.A. damage cap when affected by Status WaterAtkUp.pngWater ATK UpWater ATK is boosted
.)
Restore 20% of Aglovale's HP (Healing cap: 2000).

Hypothesis 0: no EMP transfer

Following the description of Icon Support Skill.png Crescendo WavesWhile Status Linkage.pngLinkageGains Grea's skill and support skill effects (Can't be removed)
is in effect:
50% boost to C.A. damage, 30% boost to C.A. damage cap, refresh 5% of max HP (Healing cap: 300), and 15% Uplift effect.
(Grants the same effect to an ally with Status Linkage.pngLinkageGains Grea's skill and support skill effects (Can't be removed)
.)
we expect the following charge attack damage:

Character C.A. damage C.A. damage with Status Linkage.pngLinkageGains Grea's skill and support skill effects (Can't be removed)
and Status WaterAtkUp.pngWater ATK UpWater ATK is boosted
Npc s 3040179000 01.jpg Grea (Summer) 2.12M 1.68M * (1 + 30% + 26%) = 2.62M
Npc s 3040192000 01.jpg Aglovale 1.68M 1.68M * (1 + 20% + 30%) = 2.52M

Hypothesis 1: only C.A. cap up EMP are transferred

Granting Grea (Summer)'s 21% C.A. cap up EMP to Aglovale we expect:

Character C.A. damage C.A. damage with Status Linkage.pngLinkageGains Grea's skill and support skill effects (Can't be removed)
and Status WaterAtkUp.pngWater ATK UpWater ATK is boosted
Npc s 3040179000 01.jpg Grea (Summer) 2.12M 1.68M * (1 + 30% + 26%) = 2.62M
Npc s 3040192000 01.jpg Aglovale 1.68M 1.68M * (1 + 20% + 30% + 21%) = 2.87M

Hypothesis 2: all cap up EMP are transferred

Granting Grea (Summer)'s overall 26% C.A. cap up EMP to Aglovale we expect:

Character C.A. damage C.A. damage with Status Linkage.pngLinkageGains Grea's skill and support skill effects (Can't be removed)
and Status WaterAtkUp.pngWater ATK UpWater ATK is boosted
Npc s 3040179000 01.jpg Grea (Summer) 2.12M 1.68M * (1 + 30% + 26%) = 2.62M
Npc s 3040192000 01.jpg Aglovale 1.68M 1.68M * (1 + 20% + 30% + 26%) = 2.96M

Results of the first experiment

Our tests give us the following charge attack damage:

Character C.A. damage C.A. damage with Status Linkage.pngLinkageGains Grea's skill and support skill effects (Can't be removed)
and Status WaterAtkUp.pngWater ATK UpWater ATK is boosted
Npc s 3040179000 01.jpg Grea (Summer) ~2.12M ~2.62M
Npc s 3040192000 01.jpg Aglovale ~1.68M ~2.88M

The above results are in favor of Hypothesis 1:

  • only C.A. cap up EMP are being transferred to Aglovale.

Removing 10% C.A. cap up

We remove a C.A. cap up node from Grea (Summer) which brings her to:

Assuming that Hypothesis 1 is correct we expect:

Character C.A. damage C.A. damage with Status Linkage.pngLinkageGains Grea's skill and support skill effects (Can't be removed)
and Status WaterAtkUp.pngWater ATK UpWater ATK is boosted
Npc s 3040179000 01.jpg Grea (Summer) 2.12M 1.68M * (1 + 30% + 16%) = 2.47M
Npc s 3040192000 01.jpg Aglovale 1.68M 1.68M * (1 + 20% + 30% + 11%) = 2.71M

Results of the second experiment

Our tests give us the following charge attack damage:

Character C.A. damage C.A. damage with Status Linkage.pngLinkageGains Grea's skill and support skill effects (Can't be removed)
and Status WaterAtkUp.pngWater ATK UpWater ATK is boosted
Npc s 3040179000 01.jpg Grea (Summer) ~2.12M ~2.46M
Npc s 3040192000 01.jpg Aglovale ~1.68M ~2.70M

which shows that both Grea (Summer) and Aglovale's C.A. cap have indeed been lowered by 10%.
