So I got an Epona's last night and now trying to figure out what to do with my Raja/Epona/Mars.
The way i figure it (assuming TA procs over DA) with no DA/TA atmas (ie normal) :
Eponas is about 6.1% more damage/TP. (10% DA gear, 3% TA in gear before ring). With VV(10% DA) and Apoc(15%TA) its 4.3% more TP/Damage.
Mars 8acc/atk=4% hit rate and ~2% more melee atk for roughly (rather rough estimate) 6%+ more damage, but only 4.x% more TP and depnedant on NEEDING that acc which is not always the case these days.
Rajas 2.5acc/atk, 1.25fstr, lol5dex for crit and 5strp. So 1.25% hit rate, ~.5% damage, assuming D45>46 for Fstr damage (i use D43 kila's) so 2.22% more damage. Net of roughly ~4% total damage but only 1.25%+ more TP. Then there is the STP to account for.
This is very general/rough napkin math as I kinda gave up on explicit builds on specific targets as we did at 75.
It seems off the bat that Epona's is the strongest of the 3 in a vacuum with potential drop if you go all out with multi hit stuff but will still be competative even with VV/Apoc. Mars might edge out epona with Apoc/VV AND if acc isnt capped. Rajas is roughly the same as mars in damage, and similar to TP as mars once you factor in STP, but is not as reliant on using the full acc.
I am thinking Epona/Raja as my go-to set considering mars power is extremely dependant on using that full 8acc. At 75 this would be the ****, but alas for mars, acc is not a primary concern. Epona/rajas maintain most of their TP/Damage boosts regardless of acc, though rajas str is likely overkill if you have any str atma on (VV, SA etc).
Anyway, theres my napkin/gut feelings. Do you guys agree? Disagree? What ring combo would you use. Also, a little more convoluted but, what about WS? Do you think Epona's has a place in WS sets? The 8hit cap among other things make me not sure.
