We have no x-bow options past 75, so you're stuck using ziska's for last stand. last stand only has utility in a ranger's hand as a result. Our bolt and x-bow options are far too weak to make last stand spamming worthwhile.
I have found at least one interesting (to me anyway) use for last stand on THF.
THF/WAR + decent Ranged setup + Handgonne + Iron Bullets with STR Thokcha/TP bonus Magian dagger to Bring Early Bird Catches the Wyrm out of the sky from 66%-33% in a THF+WHM duo (dualbox).
I read somewhere that you can use two TP bonus daggers as well at different stages within Magian Trials? I have not made two...I barely even use the one anymore.
-Maybe it was it Aanality? Using Culverin +1 to play around with it?
There's also a VNM in the Twashtar path that takes reduced physical damage but not from ranged attacks so I used it a few times to help out on that.
But of course, you have to 5/5 it for it to be useful, and we only have three merit WS to choose from. So if you have other jobs you care about and unless you are as determined as I am to do everything super humanly possibly without job changing from THF, I would not recommend meriting it.
