Can someone please tell me where Siren's BPs fit in my Ashitacast SMN XML? (I just don't know which of Siren's moves are Physical to use the BP-Physical set, Magical to use BP-Magical or Hybrid to use BP-Magical-Nirvana set, as I've described them in the XML).

XML: https://pastebin.com/ZWvzUAEk

My guess:
BP Rage
Physical: Welt, Roundhouse
Physical but like Volt Strike, where fTP Transfers, so use Pet DA+ gear: Hysteric Assault

Magic: Sonic Buffet, Tornado II, Sonic Buffet(?)

but what about Wards?
Lunatic Voice?
Katabatic Blades?
Chinook?
Bitter Elegy?
Wind's Blessing?

Thank you.

that's also where i'd sort it.

magical:
sonic buffet, Tornado II

Sonic Buffet deals dmg but i'd gear it towards macc for the dispel, Lunatic Voice is jus silence without dmg so also macc, Bitter Elegy is pure debuff without dmg so macc,

chinook is a aquaveil buff so smn magic skill for increased duration (and maybe potency?), Wind's Blessing is a magic shield buff so smn magic skill and Katabatic Blades is also a party buff so smn magic skill.

the only thing that's a bit sketchy is Clarsach Call as i have no clue wether the self buff she receives is affected in any form by smn magic skill in terms of potency or duration, but i assume it's a static buff.

here is the wiki link.

Welt, Roundhouse and Hysteric Assault are all physical.

Sonic Buffet and Tornado II are both magical.

Chinook, Katabatic Blades and Winds Blessing are all summoning skill

Lunatic Voice and Bitter Elegy are debuffs

Winds blessing isn't smn skill for potency. It's pet MND for potency and skill for duration. It will need to be handled differently. Here is my set, which is missing merlinic hat and the new smn sachet from sheol.

that's good to know, is the mnd/potency ratio known?

Edit: Damage Reduction = Siren's MND ÷ 5
