Hah ive been so lazy about dakinis. I havent even touched a single trial in that direction. All focus is on OAT Athame (been 0/10 on eyes for months >< But I can now Duo T2 pixies like nothing at lv 80 ^_^b) and Twashtar (Just finished Hovering Hotpot today!). But I have had more success with my OAT lance (6/10 baby Blobdingnags and another pop on me).
After realizing just what a time sink magian stuff is as trials will continue to evolve to new levels, I am going to focus exclusively on Twashtar, OAT path Athame/Paraz path, OAT lance, and MAYBE the Empyrean Lance later down the road if it starts to really pull ahead of the OAT path.
While it would be great to have 2x acc dakini, Twashtar, Paraz, 2xEva daggers etc (not to mention my Drg lances in a similar vein), it is just FAR to time consuming to really chase all those tails, and the tails will keep getting longer with more updates. (particularly with my cut in playtime). So I am banking on Twash/Paraz being the 'general' dagger combo of choice and my OAT lance(and possibly Empyran) and just leaving the rest well enough alone. I dont think you can go wrong with the Empyream + OAT paths to round out almost any job.
5% is certainly a welcome boost. Free damage go! But i was hoping for a little more. I can at least hope that Thf gets future boosts (10 and 15% yes please!) and kinda hope dnc and war dont. I think its long past due for thf to take over the crit damage world where mnks/nins/wars have overtaken us with their GOOD crit weapons, crazy dex based TP gear etc.
I suppose its time to look at how this effects things like SB/M.Stab/Evis vs DE (stacked/unstaacked etc).
As an aside, both my thf and drg are lv 80 now. But neither of them have ANY lv 75+ gear. While I will ultimately be VERY happy with Twash/Paraz, is there any more attainable weapons that push out Blau/Sirocco that we can actually get in short order? Or are we stuck with 75 weapons until we power through these (rather long)magian trials?
