So, we all know that ACP is the new Homam+1 for most every thf these days. Fstr, acc, DW that doesnt lower your TP/hit=3.9% more DOT and TP gain with Blau/Sir, X/Blau and most every awesome dagger combo (forgot if it works for mandau and not gonna check at this second :P)
Ive been spamming Fane daggers for the magical D6, Acc9, TA+2 (no dice yet), so i ran the numbers for my gear etc with my magical Fane/blau. Fane/Blau with suppa=4.7TP/hit. With ACP acc/DW its 4.6.....ouch.
So, anyway with my calcs, I compared my current set but added my fane and ran it with Corazza, acc/DW, and acc/atk mirkes.
Turns out that with the hit to TP, Corazza vs DW mirke=corazza ~3.3% more TP, but ~4% less DoT.
Haub vs DW is both TP gain and DoT are LESS than 1% away from each other. Haub WINS TP by some 0.1%, but looses DoT by some 0.15%. Virtually identical.
BUT, haub could be used when not /nin, and gets the side bonus of being useful for other jobs i dont care about much :P (had a 66 mnk for like 7 months xD)
Basically, I do not have mirke yet due to lots of reasons, but now that fane exists and that is my ultimate plan for my "standard" /nin set, I am re-evaluating the mirke and it seems pretty bleh since fane has the misfortune of loosing TP/hit with it on making mike a general wash with haub and corazza.
If using Fane, wtf is a thf to do? Keep corazza and know im loosing probably less than 1% damage? Get a DW mirke anyway and enjoy my overall sidegrade? Get the haub version and just use it on other jobs? Say **** it and wait till i level pld one day and get Fast cast+enmity?
