    Whats better?

    Rocl: To avoid the unecessary creation of thousands of simple gear comparison threads, we'll attempt to make this your generic gear question thread. If it doesn't work, I blame Suiram. If it does work, all credit goes to me. So let us begin with the OP's question:


    Blau Dolch or Stylet??

    overall, blau. But if you main Blau, Stylet is a decent sub weapon.

    Should turn this into a generic "What's better" thread to compliment the Random Question thread.

    Re: Whats better?

    Awesome, I have one I've been wondering for awhile once the OPs question is answered. For a BLU/NIN in merit situation, which of these three is are the best combination from a purely melee DoT + WS standpoint?

    perdu/ifrit's, perdu/dissector, or perdu/kilij(or slayer)

    If that's too "situational" of a question, then I guess assume colibiri and eating cheap meat with at least one brd.

    Perdu D44 Del225 acc+5 att+15 (<100% TP and on WS)
    Ifrits D36 Del236 STR+3 Att+10
    Diss D36 Del231 Crit+6% (on offhand only allegedly)
    Kilij D41 Del236 DEX+2 VIT+2


    (Edit: cause i'm not actually starting us lol)

    Re: Whats better?

    Perdu/Ifrit's better imo, combined acc+5/STR+3 will do better for your spells than random DoT bonuses on the other swords imo o.o


    This is going off of what I've heard about BLU's DoT with swords is somewhat lacking, I'm not really a career BLU or anything ;3



    to topic :

    Fransisca/Hawkers or Fransisca/Trailers til kreig?

    Perdu/Ifrit's I would say, since BLU is severly lacking in attack, altough Perdu/Dissector prolly isn't a bad choice but the crits are offhand hits only. The sole use for Demon/Dragon slayers now is for solo/intimidate. Perdu is the best main hand BLU sword in most situations with Ifrit's/Wing+1 only being better for /thf and sata spells on hnms and stuff prolly.

    I add in Haste gears for Drain/Aspir, more so for Aspir really. Aspiring faster adds up to more MP then the small boost some INT or M.Acc MIGHT add, imo.

    I add in Swift Belt as well.

    Re: Whats better?

    My melee rounds average higher on merit mobs with perdu/demon than perdu/ifrit's(more so with minuet and/or attack food), so that's what I usually use. Difference between 3 str and 2 dex on spells with both mods isn't worth worrying about imo. I only use ifrit's when I'm on /thf and not meleeing.

    Perdu/Demon for me. Especially when you're eating atk food.

    get as much accuracy as you can + haste, eat atk food. you should get good melee dmg from it

    Doesn't matter.
    pick hawker if AGI+2 bump your WSC by 1, otherwise trailers

    ltough Perdu/Dissector prolly isn't a bad choice but the crits are offhand hits only.
    and when you go dissector/???. crits are main hits only

    Re: Whats better?

    I'm going with Sickle at this point. +acc and +atk win over 2 base dmg on WS, and the lower delay + acc + atk likely beats out the crit bonus for DoT.

    I can't say that there's really a definite answer though. Both are very good weapons.

    Re: Whats better?

    Still looking for more THF to give me opinions. I'm looking into mainhanding either blau or stylet and if off had I have sirocco kukri. I'm wondering if I'll see a significant difference in damage between blau and stylet. Stylet is considerably cheaper than blau and I want to make sure its worth it. Thanks for the feedback and sorry for posting the original in the wrong forum.

    Rampage gear question:

    What's the best way to improve rampage damage on my BST in the hand slot (In before level war).

    I have a heca hands abj I'm waiting to uncurse (saving for HQ) but the possibility of me getting Skadi hands also exists as well. Skadi hands is 5str, 10 attack.

    Re: Whats better?

    The skadi hands will result in "more damage" on the hits you don't crit (and technically even the ones you do) but only marginally, I'd rather raise my chance to critical with the dex on hecatomb but 4 dex isn't exactly gonna make or break you either >_>
