Has anyone ever done research on what the effect of the elemental affinity is in this game?

Ok, maybe I'll test around a bit when I have some spare time.

From my obversation, there's a cap for magic damage in this game, so that make element affinity less important.
maximum damage output is 150% of the power in description. Exemple: Heavenly thunder says : 1500 lighting damage, then it's cap will be around 2250. What ever setup I tried couldn't break that limit: Jeanne, 3x thunder ring, magic set, alerted status on, tested on different monsters to make sure they don't all resist lightning.etc.

You mean in weapons?

Does it matter how many Rune Pieces you will attach? I tried but i saw no difference. Only weapon's element changes.

Iir rune pieces don't stack in IV.

And no, I mean how elemental affinity will change your magic damage. I also noticed that the Suikoden IV official guide uses a strange system of looking at enemies' element weakness.
