Higher delay doesn't mean much in fact the higher delay helps two handers. X-hit builds are easier then ever to make a decent one, on top of DA and triple attack are easier then ever to get as well. Then there is also sam still the hardest job to completely derp will still kick the crap out of any 1hander.
DA and Triple Attack only, or mostly, on 2h weapons? My character is gimp compared to you all that have been playing at least 5 years. I am a WAR and see THF or NIN appear to be nonstop attacks, by the time I think about WS the mob is dead.
Where? Abyssea? Content with EP/DC mobs with low defense? Yeah that's not what we're talking about here. The THF and NIN aren't going to slice n' dice powerful high level mobs so easily. Those constant triple digit hits become double digits on a mob with a lot more HP and a lot more dangerous tricks.
Could you imagine if SE made some type of adjustment that allowed these single handed jobs to have a higher damage value on high level mobs.maybe give a max level job access to some type of advanced leveling system...so they could improve on it.
(and not impact the rest of the game, which is pretty @#%^ing balanced.)
