I'll accept your reasoning but I still have some points that bug me :
- you multiply the bugged skill by 2.5 : is it justified by having the regular cast damage (1) and the bugged explosion damage (1.5) ? I'll accept it as that. The ratios have roughed up results for coefficients, not totally exact operations but it's not that impactful (although it bugged me at first)
- also, is sacrificing the soul generating soul scream passive worth ? otherwise, the only sources for souls are then soul gate and grudge formation which would roughly result in a soul liberation every 25-30s (variable because of cling snake affecting soul gate's cd) : shouldn't we try to max out the soul generation potential and use that 27k % skill as much as possible ?
Now for some questions inherent of your build :
- I guess PA's speed buff eases the use of SoP bug, but does that speed accelerates soul liberation (the start of the cast is most certainly affected, but is the hit count accelerated too ?)
- CM1-2 passive stat buffs aren't as impactful as you think : CM2's matk buff is a compensation due to increase soul's removal, and CM1's 50% INT is a stat increase given to every class during its awakening. Moreover, they are global increases, and won't tip the balance of SoP's bug evolution.

The bug has been around since her release (quite a few level caps). If they decided to fix it now there wouldn't be any point in playing SE since SD and DS would surpass her. Actually, the only reason she'd be played is because she still has the fun factor, and is still pretty strong in pvp.
I'm sorry, but Kali is a class that has always been played for the fun and complexity, they've never been played because they were the easy and broken dps top tier, and probably never will be because of how her classes are made. You also lost a bit of my respect when saying "there wouldn't be any point in playing SE since SD and DS would surpass her." Why do you care since you only play her for the fun and pvp factor ? an awakened Spirit Dancer is also said to be outdps-ing a Soul Eater, and honestly, it should be that way : Soul Eater is meant to have the curse as its main interest for the party, boosting everyone's dps instead of dishing out huge damage on their own, like Spirit Dancer and Dark Summoners do.
