Maybe it is just me with my pretty average Weaponskill gear, but has anyone else notices substantially higher WS with shark bite and mandalic stab in Abyssea than Dancing Edge and Evisceration. I was in a pt where Mandalic stab was averaging 900-1000 damage per Weaponskill with SA and TA and DE and Evisceration were averaging about 500-600 with SA and TA. My Mandalic stabs actually peaked at 1300+ in one pt. Yet I am still having a pretty rough time getting good damage returns on DE and EV. I am generally getting 14-15 tp return on Multi hits so it isn't an issue of missing hits.

Generally I use pizza for food, my acc has been good enough lately though, that I am thinking about going with yellow curry. I have been getting +10 bonus to all stats in Abyssea too. I just don't understand why there is such disparity.
