Question about light shotFollow

Is it possible to get the enhanced defense down to proc on mobs that are immune to sleep? Or even more broadly, if you light shot a mob than can be slept, but it resists, does the enhanced defense down kick in. Assuming, of course than dia was cast prior to light shot and no other debuffs landed between dia and light shot.

Just curious, not sure how you'd really test this either.

I don't think anyone has done any conclusive testing, but I think the general consensus is that, while the Quickdraw's damage can be resisted, the enfeeble enhancing effect cannot.

Haven't seen legit testing on it but it seems widely accepted that, even if the mob cant be slept, the dia will be enhanced,

My own QD question would be this: If someone lands gravity and I hit wind shot. what happens? Gravity 5% longer, mobs moves 5% slower, something else, or nothing at all?

I figure it can't hurt. Typically I end up doing this to assist on Dea pulls.

If I had to bet: increased evasion down, but don't have any data.

I vaguely recall some testing that was done back at Corsair year 1 of this, maybe not be exactly what you are looking for but it should be in some of the earlier threads on this forum (not super early because all of those were "What kind of pirate are you going to be?" speculation). I don't have premium anymore so hard for me to search for it.

Edit:

See:

"Acid Bolt/Dia Stacking
I need to figure out how strong a QD'd Windshot will increase an Acid Bolt's DEF Down. I believe an Acid Bolt lowers DEF by 12.5%, but do not know the increase in potency a Wind Shot will grant. Is it a 5% increase like we see in Dia bolsters possibly bringing it to 17.5?

I need to figure out what Dia III and Acid Bolt stacking will do to DEF.

I need to verify that Dia III + QD'd Light Shot = 20% DEF Down in accordance with the QD tier upgrade. Currently it appears that QD'd Light Shot will increase a Dia to Dia II, Dia II to Dia III, and possibly Dia III to Dia IV power."
