PadSpike! is a damage calculator for Puzzle and Dragons that tries to give more precise numbers for a given board setup versus an enemy. Specifically, it tries to answer the age-old question: "Can I spike (read: burst) this Descend boss before they murder me?" It works by loading a team built in PadHerder and using the stats of your actual cards to determine your damage output.
tl;dr OHKO calculator
How do I use it?
In PADherder, go to the team you want. Click on the URL window of your browser and copy it. Paste it into the Team ID box, and press enter.
Enter each combo you'll be making, the number of enhanced orbs in each, and the Element.
Enter the enemy's total health, defense, and type.
But what if...
I don't use PadHerder: Click the "Enter Team Manually" button. Then, enter values for each monster ID, level, awoken skills, and +eggs.
The enemy has an absorb or resist: Next to Enemy Stats, click on "resist" or "absorb" to display additional controls for the enemy. PadSpike supports elemental absorption as well as damage threshold absorption.
My leader skill isn't right: You can work around this by using the conditional leader and active skills to give you the right multiplier. For instance, if you're playing Pandora/Pandora and you only make one 6-combo, you should enter "All" and "0.5625" into the conditional leader skill (6-combo is 9x, but the listed multiplier is 16x, so 9/16 = 0.5625). If you think your leader skill can't be fixed, report an issue using the Errors link!
I'm running Zaerog/Nordis/Scarlet and my levels aren't right: Click on the level and you can change it. Stats will update automatically but you'll need to press Calculate again to use the new stats.
I'm running a no-awoken dungeon: Click "disable awokens".
PadSpike! is only possible thanks to the efforts of a number of people and puzzlers before us. In no particular order:
