Does Ion Spike amp its own metal damage?

Ion Spike does metal damage and debuffs metal defense. Does the metal damage it does get amped by the debuff or is the debuff applied after the damage has been applied?

    think of it like any other debuff. It's only effective once it procs your enemy. Once you see that debuff on your enemy, then your metal damage starts to get amped from that point on.

    just like the reply above ion spike does amp the enemy unless it procs. however, it should proc all the time since it says it has a 100% chance to reduce the enemies metal defense by 35-40%. but it doesnt proc all the time so that skill can become a bit of a pain once in a while.

    It does proc 100% of the time if you don't have any stance buff on..
    The moment you have the stance buff on, the proc rate is shared between your stance debuff and ion spike amp. This is not a glitch. This was intented to be like this.

    So, if you have duelist glee on(20% chance to proc) and you try to hit your ion spike, now instead of 100% chance on ion spike, it now reduces to 80% proc.. And the same for other stances as well
