So, I know there are a few posts around here about the new magian weapons and which ones people should get and the usual response is "Sh*ts situational", which of course I know it usually is. But, I have a lot of jobs and a lot of weapons to do and I'm trying to get the "most bang for my buck" so to speak.

I did the DEX dagger for THF because it was my best option and the most useful for my gear. I was off-handing Blau, however; paranoia got to me and I sold it before it became 100k on the AH and a not-so-useful dagger for 90+, so now I'm trying to decide what to get as my new off/main hand. My top 3 choices are between Occasionally Attacks 2-3x's dagger, STR Kilia, and Double Attack + dagger.

I made a post a few days ago about the possibility of DBL attack dagger and THF/WAR, which is still why its and option in my opinion.
I also did the OA2-3X sword for my PLD and it was a LONG painstaking process that I'm reluctant to start again, but not completely opposed too.
For me, OAT dagger is not really an option, so I was keeping that one away from my choices.

I was leaning toward the STR kilia, but then again I'm rethinking TP gain, because of the high(ish) delay on the kilias, an OAX dagger or even a low delay off hand might be better. I'll post my gear below, however I would really love to hear people's opinions about which dagger combo's are/will be better in the future. (assuming the rate of increasing stats on trials)

*Side note- I was really hoping the OA2-3 weapons would become 2-4 all the way to 2-8 ._.*


Assuming THF/NIN w/ DW3 or possibly THF/WAR if DW2 *prays*

I'm thinking you're right. Perhaps D.A. dagger mainhand would be better in a lot of situations, not that I've run any numbers or got the stats memorized. But I think there will be plenty of times where you'll gain a significant pDif boost from the Fire/Str/Attack Kila, or whatever it's called.

And more than that, it'll be a better long term investment, I think.

In the future, you could go rapidus **** instead of 2-3x, especially if using thf/war or using af3. Or auric or some alternative as your mainhand. Meanwhile, I don't think the Str Kila is so immediately replaceable. Like the Dex one, it should still have some niche use even if you get other good daggers.
