Piercing DoT (often referred to as "%HP DoT" or "Piercing Additional Damage") is an effect that deals damage to afflicted enemies at the end of the turn. Unlike the original counterpart of DoT, Piercing DoT ignores all mitigation buffs that can reduce DoT damage and deals damage equal to a portion of an enemy’s max HP similar to Proportional Damage. Despite this, Piercing DoT can still be nullified by Damage Immunity effects.
Interactions with Gradual Healing
This effect will always occur before Gradual Healing takes effect, making it a common strategy and a necessity to use Gradual Healing to counter DoT.
Interactions with Turn’s End to Start Effects
Unlike Gradual Healing and Gradual BB Gauge Boost, DoT will always occur at the end of the turn and cannot be manipulated by any means. It is highly advised to not use Turn’s End to Start effects, as units will become highly vulnerable without utilizing Gradual Healing to survive the incoming attacks on the following turn.
Interactions with Shields
Shields take damage from DoT rather than the unit's HP. Should the shield wear off as a result of DoT, the remaining damage will be dealt to the unit's HP.
DoT = [(UnbuffedATK x (DoT% + 100)/100) - (TotalEnemyDEF/3)] * Element Mod /100 UnbuffedATK = Base ATK + DoT Flat ATK + Imp ATK TotalEnemyDEF = Enemy DEF after all buffs Element Mod = 1.5 if strong element, 0.5 if resisted element, 1.0 otherwise (unaffected by EWD)
