After a good 9 months of heads, legs and "If 2 hands and/or feet drop, I get one" I come back to my limbus shell and our first Omega run we get hands/feet!

Homam Gambieras GET!

Also: lolAssassin's Vest GET

I still have the mats for Rogue's Vest +1, but lack the ABCs. Man, if I got that this sunday my thf would have just been raped with awesomeness this week.

Now I don't have to worry about getting Cobra/Denali as a decent foot piece. I can focus on other things weeeeee~!

Well I haven't posted anything fun in this thread for a while so here goes. I decided to upgrade my scorpion harness +1 this past Sunday and grabbed an Antares Harness from the auction house. It may not be skadi, but the accuracy is the same as scorpion harness +1 and it's better for weaponskill than both DH +1 and HH +1, and to boot the 8 dexterity in melee puts me dangerously close to being capable of pulling off that melee critical build I spoke of. I now have 107 dex in normal melee, so come skadi's visor we could see some serious fun ^^. And the best part is that when I get all my rare/ex parts for skadi's cuirie I can resell the antares harness and have 60% of the money for the imperial wootz ingots immediately, so it should be an instant upgrade come that point in time. Cool!!

EDIT: Another cool thing is my weaponskill strength total with my other equipment

62 str (racial) + 5 (meat), + 12 (hecatomb cap +1) + 8 (heca gloves +1) + 5 (rajas) + 4 (cuchulain's mantle) + 7 (hecatomb leggings +1)

62 + 5 + 12 + 8 + 5 + 4 + 7 == 103 strength in dancing edge

This is with cuchulain's belt 6 dex 10 attack equipped as well!! A perfect fSTR + 10 at greater colibri. I'd almost swear S-E created this thing just for me O.O.

Isn't the weapon rank of most endgame daggers, baring P.harpe and Mandau, 3, meaning fstr cap is 11, not 10? or are you just going for 10 just cause. 5 str merits would cap you out ofc, but didnt see them listed as part of your str.

Depends on the dagger really. Vajra, Azoth, X's Knife, and Magnet Knife are all t3 for example, so they have a fSTR cap of 11.

Blau dolch and sirocco's kukri however, are only t2 so they have a fSTR cap of 10. Many good thieves use Blau/Sirocco until they can obtain the impossible to find X's knife and/or Mandau so we usually end up with a fSTR cap of 10.

I thought that Mighty Knife, P. Harpe, and Batardeau/Mandau all had an fSTR cap of 12. Should be right, fSTR cap is 8+WD/9 which should put any weapon with a base damage of 36 or higher at fSTR 12 for cap.

Edit: I remember reading somewhere that fSTR for the day latent weapons was taken from the latent damage and not the base damage.

Yeah its Dmg/9. Forgot about mighty knife. But yeah, why are you aiming for 10 fstr? Shouldnt you want +40 str for 11fstr on tier 3? I know 44 is for mandau at birds.

P.s. Realize this is sounding critical, its not meant to be, just curious.

Like Meldi said, the fSTR for weapons like blau dolch is actually calculated using their non-latent damage. That means blau uses it's 26D when doing the fSTR formula.

I read somewhere that Mighty Knife and its ilk are different from other weapons with latents. I read that the latent effect damage determines the maximum fSTR, not the base damage. Which would make Mighty Knife have an fSTR cap of 12, like P harpe or mandau.

took a bit longer than I anticipated but finally got them.
Just need the feet to finish the sky portion of the set.
Also put in my first STR merit, which puts me at 71STR on my TPset, an even +1fSTR on lolibri.

Assassin's Poulainnes get.

I would have been more happy if I hadn't got Homam Gambieras recently as I would have used them xD

That sid I remember a post considering them for DE with the CHR and Triple Attack but I can't remember how they came out.

Whatever, 4th job leveled, but first to get 4/5 AF! I'm 3'5 on the others >.< Need 1 Beaucedine, 2 Jeuno and all 4 Xarcabard.

**** you xarcabard, give me my Armlets and Armet!

I would probably use them on solo DE if I knew that Hecatomb Leggings weren't giving me +2 fSTR. Since you don't have Hecatomb Leggings, for solo DE I would definately use them. +5 CHR will give you about 1.66 WSC more or less, so 66% of time it could bump you up to +2 WSC, plus 1% triple %.

Edit: Then again, Homam Gambieras have +6 acc. That would be the only consideration for solo DE for me.

Sushi in merits or low level like campaign or assault, Hecatomb or Assassin's yeah. Madrigal in merit, I would still say it would be close, because you still probably wont quite be capped accuracy. But yeah, any situation where accuracy is capped, Homam would be an incredibly stupid choice.
