First, before I say anything else, just remember. There are at least two more pieces coming out. They could make the set stronger depending on what they put on them.
I get the feeling that SE is trying to fix thf and make it a better DD but they're going about it wrong.
Upside: Crit Attack Bonus: Improves power of critical hits. Our SA's can now hit harder. Full of win in my opinion.
Upside: Despoil: Steals items from an enemy while inflicting a status ailment upon it. You can inflict a random status debuff, just by stealing. Pretty cool.
Downside: Another steal? Come on really? Do we honestly need another steal?
Upside: Dual Wield. You no longer have to sub nin or dnc to get dual wield. pretty cool if not for...
Downside: Dual Wield 1 at 83 (if I remember correctly). You mean to tell me that even though thf has better acc with a dagger than dnc, they can swing faster? Lovely. We might be able to hit half the time but dnc can miss faster than us (not meant to put dnc down in any way, please don't take it as an insult.)
Upside: AF3. Our AF3 is pretty cool in my opinion. It has some pretty nice buffs on it.
Downside: AF3 that has another TH+1. Great. Not only do I have to wait in line forever for AF2 armlets, but now I have to get these feet, and probably be stuck coming to every end game event that *needs* TH+5. They have officially screwed every main time thf who ever had ambitions of coming something else to an event.
Sorry about getting a tad off topic there. Anyways, yeah, I'm kinda bitter about this. The other pieces of thf AF3 are pretty cool, but SE just proved to me that thfs are nothing but treasure hunter whores. That said, I'll get the feet. I won't boycott them, but when I finish my next 75, or rather 85, if I keep getting forced to come thf to events because of it, I'll probably store my gear and wait a very long time to play thf again.
Edit:I really shouldn't hit the forums when I'm tired. -.-zzzz

I can't think of anything clever or witty to put here. So I'll just hum to myself.
*hums I'm on a Boat*
