    The "Weapon Skill DEX +10%" on Utu Grip adds 10% DEX to Weapon Skill stat mod. It applies to all Weapon Skills. Resolution and Apex Arrow both got DEX 10% as secondary mods and Dimidiation's DEX mod increased to 90%.

    That's... incredible. That grip is a monster.

    I don't know what the fuck they were thinking when they made that.

    I'm inclined to believe that the fact it applies a 10% DEX mod to WS who do not naturally have a DEX mod might be an "error" they didn't foresee?

    The devs spent quite a while (5-10min) talking about the grip and how it works (with powerpoint slides XD) during the broadcast of this month's Freshly Picked #30.
    I know enough Japanese to be able to translate the gist of things, but not enough to deal with finer technicalities like what they were doing.. Someone who is actually fluent needs to watch it and post a translation. The point being that if they are going to spend that much time explaining a single item, then there is likely to be something super special to it (Like straight up adding an additional WSC mod.) While I was watching, I actually expected a cycle of grips similar to Utu Grip for other attributes given how much attention they were giving it.

    Wish they added CC/subs to these things after they go out. Would make it infinitely easier to deal with translation issues if we had an actual script to reference. >_<

    You're probably right I guess =/

    How crazy is it really though? I've got 350~ DEX in my Shun set. I am guessing sets for WS like Resolution are going to end up with less. It's like DMG+30~35 on your WS. Lionheart has 336 base damage and you're going to get like 300~ or so from the STR mod and then up to another 45 from fSTR. That's DMG 630~675 before this bonus is applied. It's a marginal 5%~ increase in WS damage for that use case. Doesn't seem game breaking or too crazy to me.

    Also while it's new and cool remember this is a grip so you are looking at ws with 2hd weapons and huge base dmgs already. That 10% dex thing is only going to add like 3-5% dmg to the ws. Awesome for sure but the acc/att probably does almost as much

    edit: fuck you mojo getting in like a second before me lol

    On my DRK's Resolution set (~360 STR, ~260 DEX) (discounting the +30 attack) on a middle of the road target, the strap's 10% DEX mod gives me about a 3.8% damage bonus over no strap at all. It's significant, but not holyshitamazing. If I had to choose, I'd personally take the 30 acc/atk over the 10% DEX mod.

    You also need to consider the loss of Store TP from your current grip, so it would actually be even less of a marginal gain. It's still likely BiS though.

    30/30 acc/attack gives you a pretty large degree of leeway (For DRK, I assume you usually need to use Bloodrain over Nep +1 on high end content and something like Ainia or Dedition wasn't generally viable on such targets either) when integrating in STP in other slots. I don't think anyone wasn't considering its other stats when pondering its potency.

    So I got this crazy idea that if for some reason you didn't want your auto attacking but wanted it to take why not just /sit between maneuvers since auto will sit too. It sort of works but when it takes dmg a weird thing happens. It scoots along the ground towards you while still sitting similar to how you'd see players running around /sitting while trying to get vnms

    So was looking thru Ambuscade and it states "Any action (buff, cure, job ability) at any time (before/after pull) taken upon yourself or a party member will gain enmity on all mobs for the person initiating the action".

    This isn't precisely true. While I haven't really checked before pull after pull it's just like normal assuming everyone was on the hate list. Basis for this is I'd throw autos without hate moves on mobs and then buff after sending them to targets... if I was within 30 it'd come right to me unless I waited for hate to build a bit. If I went farther out I could throw as many buffs as I wanted full hp cures and be fine.

    Yeah, everyone is on the hate list but obviously the target of the spell/ability still has to be within 30' of the monster for the user to gain hate.

    Opening fights with Sentinel->Palisade on PLD is a good decision.

    Yeah figured it's probably what was meant but the way it was stated could lead to some confusion.

    So fun fact atmacites persist on trusts after the fight. Sadly this doesn't apply to pets too as one would think. Also sphere effects from atmacite wont work on main
