A lot of the Mod13 gear adds damage buffs.
4
Since we know how (in)consistent the game is with what it buffs, we need to take a look at what it buffs and what it doesn't.

The way that most of these gear pieces work is that they multiply your damage output by 1.0(#) times to their respective bonus.
8
They are not like the Executioner's Black Attire; these hunt gears are superior.
9
The catch is, that you need to check which powers/abilities scale with the buff. Which is where this sheet comes in.

If you are incredulous about my testing methods, what I did was I set up an Excel sheet that allows me to input various parts of the damage formula. It accounts for basic things, such as ability rank and Power.
12
13
Then, what I did was I went onto preview, equipped a character with a fixed damage weapon and no feats or gear, save for the Sigil of the Devoted (for daily attack testing) and the actual gear piece.

15
Then, deal damage with the gear piece on.

(This was the Fearbringers test for Crushing Surge and weapon enchants.

25
Then, I set up the parameters of my character in the Excel sheet, then checked the calculation.

The difference should be approximately 1.03x, with some degree of error for rounding.
51
The leftside test is for Crushing Surge hit 1, the right side is for the Lightning enchant. Since both are approximately 1.03x in difference, both are scaled by the Fearbringer's buff.

53
For those wondering what an inherited proc is:
54
it is any source of damage which will scale depending on the skill which procs it.
55
For example, if Storm Spell procs off an ability which is scaled by the Eyestalk Wraps, then Storm Spell procs off that ability will also benefit from the proc.
