Alright so there’s a fair bit of work I have done previously on the topic of “Titan Damage Boosters”…

Mainly comparing the big 4 options in Miki, Gazelle, Tarlak and Wu Kong… with a side-dish of Ranvir.

Here is the summary of that thread:

## Adding Franz

Running that same calculation with Franz, who gives +50% damage recieved we get the following inputs:

- Tiles = 3
- Attack = 500
- Defence = 400
- Theta = 1.1275
- Power-up = 0
- Miss Chance = 0
- Increased Damage = +50% = 1.5 multiplier

We do add in tho an extra term to the formula so the formula becomes:

`{Damage per hit} = 100 * ({theta} * ({attack}*{attack buff} / {defence})^1.35) * {Increased Damage}`

So running that calculation we get:

- Damage per tile = 238.38
- Total Damage from 3 tiles = 715.15

## Answer?

So all in all, the short answer is NO… Franz is not a viable replacement for Wu Kong on a Titan…

HOWEVER Franz’s ailment does stack with all the other damage boosters… so he should definitly be considered as a titan essential both “On” and “Off” colour
