More than a Game
The Gauntlet will define its PowerLevel (GPLvl), MP Level (GMPLvl), and Element. Use those.
Disable when no Gauntlet is equipped
Ranged attack (Standard AQ stats for damage) as follows:
Base = math.round(85/75/3*(4.0+0.5*GPLvl+0.0050*math.pow(GPLvl, 2)))
Rand = math.round(85/75/3*(13.0+1.25*GPLvl+0.0050*math.pow(GPLvl, 2)))
Stat = math.round(85/75/3*(200.0+8.8*GPLvl))
BtH = math.floor(0.25*GPLvl-10)
SPCost = math.round(0.75*(38.1+2.3375*GMPlvl+0.01125*math.pow(GMPlvl, 2)))
This applies to ALL Gauntlets, it'll give you the Power and Cost of their Gauntlet Blast in any armor which has the standard Gauntlet blast - which at this time is all of them.
Eek, sorry for the wrong answer >.< Rhowena's got it :)
And to your second question, I don't beleive there are any major differences. Maybe its faster with less lag? I'm not entirely sure; I just know the differences aren't obvious enough to affect your gameplay experience.
