This is very interesting. Not that I want to be anybody's cure bitch. But if /Dnc were to for some reason get DW3, then we would also have access to haste samba 90+. So tradeoff would be shadows and some subtle blow, in exchange for haste samba, an accuracy bonus (10acc), and some support utility.
I don't know what to think but at a first glance s-e seems to have given dancer dual wield a very interesting hierarchy that could make it possible. There's some testing on the dancer forms with a preliminary indication that dancer gets dual wield 4 by level 75. The methods used are solid enough (they're measuring tp gain per hit on level 1 mobs) but the sample size is too small to make any conclusions.... yet. Link is here
. I'd wait until more people chime in to give a more reliable sample size (and more people analyzing too) before passing any judgment. But if subbable dancer DOES get dual wield III then that's a shock I'd have never seen coming. They only get dual wield I at level 20 and at a first glance appear to have DW II by 37 already so I'm going to follow this threads development for sure.
EDIT: Actually looking at it there seems to be a trend. Dancer gets dual wield I 10 levels after ninja and we're pretty sure it has dual wield II before 37. Since ninja gets dual wield II at lvl 25 it's actually probably dancer gets dual wield II at 35. If that trend were to continue (very probable) then no, dancer won't be seeing dual wield III until around level 55 or so. It also fits in perfectly with dual wield IV at level 75 because ninja gets it at level 65. It appears dancer gets dual wield tiers 10 levels after ninja every step of the way.
