So, made a merit pty last night, and thought i'd give DNC a go. I usually just go for speed, so a BRD & 2xMarch is a necessity for me. A 2nd BRD, or a COR is a luxury and obviously grab one if I can.
Last night, i had a BRD, COR, DNC support eating carbonara.
Usual Delay in meripo's this last week has been
450 * (1- 0.55) = 202.5 (3.375 secs per att round)
450 * (1 - 0.65) = 157.5 (2.625 secs per att round)
Depending on How long I can keep Hasso up before I hit low HP.
The DNC, and his 10% haste Samba, brought my delay down to 112.5 (1.875 secs per att round) giving a boost to my DoT of 40%., or a speed increase of 40%, however you want to look at it.
The speed increase when those orange dots start flying everywhere is so unbelievably visible, the DoT from Hagun was amazing. Gaining enough TP to WS from swinging the Hagun every 7.5 - 9.4secs was just too good. The WAR and me could have kept the chain's going just from swinging our weapons as each hit from our weapons took ~3% of mobs HP off.
In any case, im sure many off you have BRD + DNC support now, if not then its well worth trying. I used to just want a BRD, then i'd make a meripo, but now, I want a BRD + DNC.
A Soboro /DRG setup instead of Hagun /War would actually hit the 80% haste cap like this. The addition of the 5% Haste earring would be worth a staggering 20% speed increase. I can't imagine what that would be like, but im thinking im gonna try it soon.
EDIT: I was just thinking also, im pretty sure Hagun /DRG would out perform Hagun /War in this setup. A 20% DoT boost earring, 6% Dot boost from acc trait and the extra tp & ws's from jumps has to beat 10% DA, zerk, 10att bonus JT & warcry.
