how does forcewave work?

I have rank 17 force wave, im using the modifier that removes the cooldown and stun and reduces the damage

the skill itself says it deals 208% weapon damage, the modifier says -75% weapon damage. does that mean the skill now does 133% wpn dmg or 52% wpn dmg?

Weapon Damage is additive, and Total Damage is multiplicative, so you’d end up with 133% weapon damage (but the skill output would go down another 18% across the board with that transmutor selected). It’s still pretty beefy at high skill levels, especially with an Obsidian War Cleaver and high cast speed.

alright thanks, that makes it a lot better, with that knowledge its still worth it to invest in flat damage affixes not just %'s, thanks man
