How many have augmented this dagger and what kind of goodies did you get? DMG +4, ACC +6 and Subtle Blow +6 as of 5 mins ago.

GL to everyone that tries one of these fights, I know mine in Grauberg [S] was a biotch.

Seems like Acc, Dmg+, triple attack, and subtle blow are some of the more common boosts on this thing.

Someone in the KI thread seems committed to getting a good combo at least.

considering +4 seems to be the highest reported "+DMG", fane starts at 27, and other endgame main options are 33-37 DMG with added bonuses (ATT/ACC, +crit hit damage, etc), the unfortunate truth seems to be that they won't be getting a good combo.

Also consider it only starts at 22DMG offhand. Which is abysmal.

Just did this quest for first time for my BLU, my stats were poor but a guy in group got me wanting to do it for THF with +9 DMG and +Drk Dmg stats. Giving it 36 Base on Main Hand.

It is garbage as a sub weapon. For main hand, it's still no better than Blau Dolch as well as other high-end daggers. I'll reserve my judgment on it until I see DMG going for more than +4 (its delay is not bad as is). Are DMG, Accuracy, and Subtle Blow the only three? SAM's weapon have been the same for its own three as well so I'd think other weapons are all like it. So I think for this THF one we can all just hope for a higher +DMG to be confirmed.

Base damage isn't everything but it's important of course. If it got +5 base dmg it'd be 1 less than Blau in the mainhand. And if it had great stats otherwise it could possibly be better than S.Kukri, even if you had to offhand blau and lose 1 dmg on WS, which isn't much. I guess I don't really have my hopes up yet, and I'm not sure what said hypothetical 'awesome stats' could be. I don't think we have a large enough sample of attempts on this yet to conclude anything but it's not looking amazing so far.

Looking over the BLU forum, highest DMG confirmed so far is +5. That gives some hope to think +5 DMG (or more) can be on dagger as well.

Thursday, July 23 I got Fane Baselard with augments of:

DMG+5, Accuracy+6, and Subtle Blow+5

Not a BD by any means, but for someone who plays THF only for low man fights, farming, and the occasional Nyzul run, I think it's a reasonably good dagger for a decent price (think I paid 140k for the dagger), and price is likely to go down exponentially over the next month or 2. I'm not going to post a screenshot as I don't recall how lol, but anyone I'll show it to anyone on Sylph who wants confirmation.

Oh yeah, I got these augments in Grauberg[S]. Party was PLD/NIN, RNG/NIN(me), BLU/NIN, SCH/RDM, WHM/SCH, and RDM/BLM. was a very easy fight and took about 15 minutes per kill.

hmm. 1 less weapon damage, 1 more ACC, 16 less ATT, 8 more delay. not as good, but yeah, not terrible. blau is around 3%-5% better, depending on melee/WS/ability split. not bad really.

Fane/Dolch looks really **** with that
DMG+5, Accuracy+6, and Subtle Blow+5.

Definitely great combo situationaly
That Fane's got slightly less DPS than Sirocco
but that extra 6acc sure is sexy.

hmm offhand Fane, and swap bombcore back in?

Looks like I'll have to pick me up a couple of those baselards and get to work.

edit - calculated DPS using D33 for Fane before edit.

Daylight dagger can somewhat compare of 1 extra DMG with almost the same delay. That site confirms of a +9 accuracy augment for Fane so far and that beats Daylight in having that effect at all times. I don't care much for Subtle blow.

Wouldn't it have a higher weapon rank than BD with a similar delay?

Or am I wrong about weapon rank being based on DMG before the latent is active?

Sorry? Fane baselard is confirmed to have gotten a +5 DMG augment, making it have 32 DMG main handed with Blau still beating it by 1 DMG with a slight lower delay & latent.

Over the WAR forum, a +6 DMG augment is confirmed. :D Pic. Funny to see Flash as an additional effect.

weapon rank shouldn't make much difference at all (weapon rank determines fSTR upper and lower caps, and THF rarely caps fSTR despite its low damage weapons because THF doesn't usually wear 110+ STR and such). however, regarding your question, some weapons use pre-latent weapon rank (waghs, blau, onimaru, etc), while some use latent damage to determine weapon rank (destroyers, heart snatcher, etc).

since these +DMG augment weapons just came out, i'd be surprised if any players know whether the +DMG affects weapon rank. need to go hit some wild rabbits and get max damage to see what fSTR cap is, and this figure out weapon rank.

Actually, it could make a difference. As Thf WS gear at the upper end is primarily heca gear, its rather easy (with good gear) to shoot past the Fstr level in merits and other easier things. Id need to double check, but I believe blaus Fstr cap on birds is 103 (its 103-4, think 3). Whatever the case, im currently +1 str over the cap on Blau/sirocco on solo DE (HH). I drop HH on stacked, and will ultimately get a skadi to make HH mannequin fodder.

I dont have a Nhead and only 2/5 str merits currently and a lolMithra str. If your any other race/HH/Nhead/5str etc, many people are guaranteed to overshoot Fstr cap on daggers on a lot of day-to-day mobs. If i finished my Str merits, id be one over on loibri. If I get Nhead, i have a LOT of str at my disposal. If i were a hum/elvaan/galka id be waay overkill on a huge number of things.

Anyway, long story short. If we get something comparable to blau DPS but say, 1-2 less base damage on WS, the Fstr for some pimped Thfs might make up that 1-2 anyway on all but HNMs making net WS damage the same or improved negating the main/sub issue.

Idc too much about weapon rank but aye my mercy set has +65 str in it; I'm roughly 20 points above fStr cap for g.colibri there. In my evisc set, +35 or about 11 points under. For my weapons at least.

first of all, blau weapon rank is 2, and the competitors we might imagine are going to be 3, so it's not going to be "1-2 BD" but rather just 1 (unless the competitor is batardeau, p.harpe, or mandau). 9*1=9, 9*2=18, 9*3=27, 9*4=36;;;.

second, 1 higher weapon rank means 1 more base damage when you cap fSTR of course. so, say you're fighting gcolibri and you go from blau's rank2 to hypothetical's rank3. assuming you had DEX and CHR = 60 (to lower base damage and be generous) you'd get at most 1.3% WS DoT from 1 higher weapon rank. stack it with SA or TA and that number plummets.

sure, 1% or < 1% is a difference, but i don't see adding 1% to your WS damage tipping the scales in one of these comparisons.

---

by the way, if lobi was asking about blau's weapon rank and i misinterpreted the question, no you're not wrong, blau uses pre-latent weapon rank. if you were asking about the weapon rank of the new weapons like i thought (which in hindsight wouldn't make sense for dagger since the damage will be between 27 and 36 one way or the other), i don't know.

Oh, i know all that, the 1-2 from blau i meant as the actual base damage difference, not the Fstr diff. Forgot +5 damage was already confirmed so we can at least get D32 to Blau's D33. If by some miracle we got something that competes with blau for TP, the WS -1 damage would be rather irrelivant as we can get the extra Fstr to make it up on WS (assuming weapon rank isnt completely retarded and based on the offhand base D 22 or some **** Just a hypothetical "if" we found something good out of this for TPing, the -1 damage would be rather moot on WS and shouldn't turn us off to it.

It would be nice if SE ever saw fit to raise our potential and give us something besides Blau/sirocco after all these years. I rather liked the upgrades drg got over the years moving from Ori lance>Mez>Thal>Vfork. Very slight and nothing game breaking, but all pretty accessible and still a uncontested upgrade with each new lance. I love my Blau/Sir, but i would kinda like something besides mandau that is a true upgrade.

*(Pharpe/X's are hardly "upgrades" all around. More like situational HNM gear thats almost or on par with Blau/Sir on everything else. Though X's is very close and hard to measure, but nothing stands above in a significant way until mandau. Not to mention the rediculous effort needed to actually obtain these daggers.)

One other question which I can't seem to find the answer to anywhere. Is weapon rank on SATA determined by actual weapon damage or by weapon damage + DEX/AGI? (I assume it's just actual weapon damage)

i'm fairly sure it's the actual damage, but this is relatively easy to check by doing SA WS vs wild rabbits with as much STR on as possible. you'd get around 8~ more base damage than expected if weapon rank/fSTR caps were influenced by the DEX.

considering h2h weapon rank ignores our h2h skill and is determined by the +damage on our weapons, i'd be pretty shocked if weapon rank ever looks at anything but weapon damage.

Weapons aren't the problem, it's lack of attack and the resulting inability to reach the full potential of the weapons we already have that are the problem.

SE should give THF a "stance" which grants Attack+10% Evasion -10% DEF-10% and an attack multiplier on critical hits.

Blau's D33/delay 178.

It's a sidegrade at best, but that with an offhand Blau is probably a pretty good damage machine.

EDIT: just did the math on an assumption of fSTR of 5~6, which is probably slightly low. Before acc+/TA+ Blau is ~7% ahead. Accuracy, not being a massive issue, makes up ~2.7% (assuming enough accuracy that the +5 over Blau is enough to exactly put you at cap), and TA+1 is at most 1.8%, leaving Blau about 2.6% ahead (without even taking the attack+ on Blau into account; that's probably another 2-3% as well). This ties or beats Blau with a hit rate below ~46%, so it's not even a sidegrade to Blau.

Now we know that DMG, accuracy, and subtle blow aren't the only 3 augments to be randomized and that excites me. That is one nice dagger, despite my belief for a +6 DMG one to be possible as is seen on another weapon that got that.

Accuracy, not being a massive issue, makes up ~2.7% (assuming enough accuracy that the +5 over Blau is enough to exactly put you at cap), and TA+1 is at most 1.8%, leaving Blau about 2.6% ahead (without even taking the attack+ on Blau into account; that's probably another 2-3% as well). This ties or beats Blau with a hit rate below ~46%, so it's not even a sidegrade to Blau.

Blau is pretty much our Hagun, extremely hard to beat. However, as mentioned, that would be pretty good as a Main and Blau off. How it would compare to others such as Blau/S.kukri, X's/Blau etc requires more theorycrafting methinks.

It'd be great for /dnc. Although I wonder how X's vs that would be on /dnc.

I think If i got a damage+5 acc +10 TA +1 combo on the dagger i would use it as an exp dagger over SK. Maybe even if instead of TA it had light or some other element damage added effect. FB/DB spamming kabobs at birds with that augment sounds sweet to me. I can always use 5% more hit rate, but i so rarely merit on THF :(

But as it seems to be uable to match blau (tho I would like to see some info on fstr caps in ws. If its modified damage is the base, the added fstr would give it equal WS damage to blau assuming you have the str in gear. (might make warwolf useful to me over cuch belt or something in the ws).

But the costs to get a weapon with max augments.... And its still no blau...
That limits it to a mainhand weapon when /nin and TH is of no concern. I dont find myself on thf in that situation often.

Yeah, but even without the Atk/Acc+ part it's still ahead over that version of FB.

Hence why I left it out at the time.

Yeah thats what im looking at too. Obviousy it would probably be a D32 weapon used in main hand and just have to eat -1 damage on WS and go Fay/Blau. But something tells me its just going to be yet ANOTHER side-grade combo as the speed giving greater TP gain from sirocco will likely be the great equalizer netting more WS as it does with every other combo weve compared. It would probably just end up as another "similar" option much like X's/blau is. Not really hands down better by any significant margin.

I would say Fay/Blau with 10 acc fay would be great for HNM....but /nin=fail on most HNM and id take my blau's acc/atk any day. I guess on stuff like Odin and other things where you have to /nin for AOE anyway, it could be a solid combo. Yay more situational junk that marginally better 5% of the time! /facepalm

ah. yeah, 5ACC < 15ATT. mdenham, your math was odd... you think blau will win, so you assume lower base damage (favors blau) and higher ACC (also favors blau)? that's not convincing. but yeah, it looks like i was hasty.

Well, the highest fSTR you're going to get in that situation is 7 anyway. 5~6 doesn't appreciably change that part of the figure, and I was lowballing the percentage at that step anyway (at fSTR 7 it's ~7.174%; at fSTR 5 it's ~7.319%).

Knocking off the minimum increase from 3A +1, this leaves Blau 5.260~5.402% ahead with acc+ and atk+ to take into account. Leaving atk+ out for now (mostly because I'm not sure about what "average" attack for THF is; I suspect 300-330 without food, 370-400 with food), we then figure out how much base accuracy we'd need for the acc+10 on that FB to win (which is a situation that's pretty well geared to the best possible increase for it anyway, just like the assumption that there's no other 3A+ gear present).

In that case - which is specifically a "you're TPing past 100%" case - the FB comes out ahead as long as your base hit rate is below 90.2%. The rest of the time, your base hit rate with Blau would need to be below 47.53% instead. (Adjusted from the last post because I suspect I was doing odd rounding things as well.) And remember, we still haven't taken the atk+15 into account yet, which just makes it worse for that specific FB.

Apologies for making it look odd originally, though; the problem was more that I'd checked things, then didn't mention "oh, hey, now I'm going to drop that accuracy bit out to figure out where the crossover point is".

Not sure if anyone has seen this yet, but Fane Baselard with DMG+6 is possible.

[img=136229]

So, now you can Fane/Blau and not even suffer on WS damage.

Now, if TA+2 or more is possible, a Fane that actually beats Blue might be doable.

This, but my only concern right now is what rank weapon is it considered. As long as it doesn't base it off dmg22, it'll actually have a higher fstr cap than blau.

I was gonna say probably 22, but actually idk. But does it really matter so much?

If you're cappin fStr for WS without using mercy stroke, you're probably not fighting something terribly tough. But either way, for WS, fane's base dmg will still be higher than Sirocco and it can also offer added stats. The only other common situation I can see fStr being capped in is when meleeing stuff that's quite a bit weaker (borderline too-weaks and below, probably?). On stuff like that, who really cares. But beyond that, Sirocco would probably be better for such stuff anyway, what with base dmg being less impt with all that added fStr, delay being thus more impt, and wind dmg probably proccing for more dmg.

It's at best a blau sidegrade when /not nin, and the only time i am /nin and not using tk is merits, and i guess some nms, but i am often to lazy to change weapons on those.

EDIT: I guess it will all come down to cost. We shall see as weapon prices drop.

That's pretty sick.

What's a fair amount of situations? Man, the number of times I've used 2 Damage daggers instead of GoodDagger/TK:
Merits
Farming/Playing in Sky
Farming/Playing in Sea
ZNM
Salvage
Nyzul
Limbus
@#%^ it... I'm not going to list everything. Because I've pretty much done just about every type of thing there is to do endgame /nin, and I don't bother putting TK on till the end of the fight, and if there's another person to TH it I'll sneakily take my TK off, and if it's something where things drop but killspeed matters more than arbitrary drops (ie low man limbus), I'll take it off.

Of course I use /non-nin whenever it's best. But...a fair amount of situations is a fair amount.. If I were still blau/sirocco I would continue to use that combo for something like, say, Nyzul, where accuracy isn't really needed. But there are plenty of situations where you're dd'ing it up outside of merits and you're not easily capped on acc. There's a lot of stuff to do in the game.

For Blau, it takes STR 95 at birds, which shouldn't be horribly out of reach.

It's still probably slightly more than you'd normally want to melee in, but it's not "ZOMG MUST STACK A **** OF STR".

95 str at birds is only +8 fstr. Blau and sirocco cap at +10 or 103 str. Either way still WAY to much for any respectable TP set, but very possible if you have a a buncha heca/Rajas/Warwolf gear on WS. I currently have exactly 3 or 4 Fstr on tp depending on if kabob is up or not. (My TP set has 64+5+3+5=77 for tp. Rajas+forgers+kabob on a mithra with 2 str merits :P) On Solo DE i have 104 str so i cap it. Stacked I drop HH for DH+1 so i wont cap til i land Nhead on stacked.

Conveniently, i will EXACTLY cap when i get skadi body(instead of HH) and Nhead on any WS i perform in merits. Also, when i get my last 3 str merits and a cuchulain mantle, i will maintain exactly 103 str on all WS in my ideal gear. Pretty sweet :P

I don't think theres much point in compariing the dagger to Blau, as Blau can perform amazingly mainhand or offhand.

With DMG+33 (DMG+6 aug) ACC+10 Fane Baselard and Blau Offhand, i'd bet my Bronze Harness+1 that it would out perform Blau/SK. 5% Hitrate is just amazing in a slot that won't usually allow for it.

X's I would'nt know where it would stand, but im sure the extra crit % will be out shone by lower delay and 5% ACC.

Theres some potentially nice possibilities neway. Getting DMG+6 ACC+10 TA+1-2 would be the ultimate imo.

Yes, that would be insanely sexy. Soon as i finish my project and graduate (im just taking a small break right now....I swear!) and get back to playing, im looking forward to a greatly upgraded set (soon as i get this stuff)

*Salade 10acc/5atk/3%haste replace turban
*Fane: ideally D33 acc+10, TA+X% replace sirocco
*ACP body acc/DW (did the fight with some pickups before my break and was all fail ><) replace homam.

That would put me at 93/88.5% acc on the lv 81/82s....OMG over 90% on lolThf!!! Ill outparse my own drg some day! (probably not, but i now mostly compare my own thf to my own drg these days :P) Anyway, i have been rather sad the last year-ish because my TP set has remained virtually unchanged for thf since I got homam body while Drg has been getting lots of fun toys upping its potential and still has more to go. (1 exception being skadi legs <3) so i am VERY much looking forward to some significant upgrades in many slots on Thf(even though my homam looks>>>>>>>>>Mirke will make me ; ;).

On that note...back to evil, evil research so i can DO these things at some point xD. August graduation is approaching WAY to fast ><

**Edit Forgot one: If i were to be so blessed as to get the confirmed +5acc on my foragers mantle random Aug....OMG! **** you Cuchulain!

If you can't find the Ranged att jobs, RDM BRD MNK MNK MNK MNK works a beauty.

All MNK's /WAR, start with an ic wing, use all JA's except 100fist before hitting mob, then 100FIST just as you hit mob.

Make sure all MNK's 100FIST in WS gear and take Boost out of their Asuran macro's and the fight is just pwnage.

I did it 2days ago and the actual fight took 39secs. C.Subs, Zerk, Double Attack, SV Minuets put out att's around ~750. It was serious pwnage.

I'd definately put some serious thought into that. If you don't have N.Head, or won't be getting it then the WS piece could be the better option (Melphina's math taking into account). If you end up getting the Fane Baselard with ACC+8-10 too aswell then srious thought is needed.
