Did some more testing and found that if you qd 1 mob, then a different one in succession, the bonus is not applied. This made me think that the enhancement isn't on the pc, but a debuff on the mob.
Next test was with Wildfire, did two control ws on a spider in Abyssea-Mis on lightsday for 2930. With the same buffs, I then used Fire Shot, Fire Shot, Wildfire and did 3220. Again, a 10% increase on magical dmg. Duplicated it with a single Fire Shot and Wildfire and got the same results, which got me pretty excited.
Grabbed a blm friend, and went to Mt. Z to test on flans using t1 nukes. We did Bliz1, Bliz 1, Ice Shot, Bliz1, QD. Both the additional shot and the 3rd Bliz1 received the damage boost.
While some naked control mob testing should probably done, at this point I'm fairly confident that a QD using Navarch's Bottes +1 grant a straight 10~% dmg bonus to any subsequent magical attack of the same element on that mob used within the estimated 15 second window.
What is your gear to get QD that high?

Mirke has mab/qd delay - on it. Using Atma of the Beyond and Atma of the Smouldering Sky. On the same mob as the above shot, I hit combo was 845 with an 8, aesthetics, and no blm or day bonus. http://i396.photobucket.com/albums/pp45/lolwuttemp/aesthetics.jpg
If you're only interested in boosting QD dmg, add a Blm, XI roll, Aesthetics, Day Bonus, and Atma of the Beyond + Atma of the Baying Moon and it should break 1k+ on Ice Shots by my estimation. I'm rarely on Cor outside of WoE, so I haven't had the opportunity to do so yet. If I can get my static to go for it, I'll play with it tonight or tomorrow and post some pics.
Oh, and the Wildfire in that shot is actually about 100 dmg below my average with buffs, it's broken 3220+ with buffs + lucky roll without Blm or weather bonus. I'd imagine it could go 4k+ full buffed on Firesday with an 11 + a Blm. Edited, Oct 28th 2010 2:55pm by solara Edited, Oct 28th 2010 2:55pm by solara
