Thats storeTP 74 with full Merits(39)+(35). 11.5x 1.74= 20.01 or 5 hits to 100TP
(THIS IS HOW YOU CALCULATE STORETP INTO YOUR TP!!)
0-100TP 5 hit:450-(450x.26~ Hasso 10%-feet2% waist6% legs5% head3%)= 333x5= 1665/60=27.75
WS-100TP 5hit:333x4= 1332~22.2 after WS
Max Haste 5 hit: 450-(450x.8)= 90x5= 450/60= 7.5-- 90x4= 360/60= 6
0-100TP 6 hit: 450-(450x.36 hasso 10%- Cap Gear haste) = 288x6= 1728/60=28.8
WS-100TP 6 hit: 288x5=1440~24 after WS
Max Haste 6 hit:450-(450x.8)= 90x6= 540/60= 9 -- ^ look up for 5 hit!
Haste=Tp- TP=WS WS=What SAMs are in your MeritPT/HNM/SKY/SEA shell for!
5 Hit setup, acc better than most average SAMs
Still working with managable Haste, but realisticly StoreTP, Double attack, Barrage yada yada are all forms of haste, if you think of them as ways to reach 100TP in a shorter time. And if you really more worried about having haste over storeTP, SAM isnt your Job. Shaving 450delay off your race to 100TP is a big step. Most SAMs I know don't have more than 14% Haste(swift4%, byakko5%, walmart hat5%) anyway, if that.
Only things that I'm worried about in this setup is the ACC of it, and how to obtain the grip and head. Other than that,
Hauby+1 gives more att over usu, and ace's helm gives +7 acc. Black Tathlum gives more attack and acc, meh.
Off the top of my head I can think of armor that a give you +28STR more for WS than this setup
Which if i'm correct (you do the math) can be about
28x.75STR mod =21x.83lv75 = 17.43x 2.4(i think this is melee cap)= 41.8x 1.875=78.4 x1.19 (overwhelm)= 93.3 or 94 more damage on 100TP WS, but thats only if your are capping attack on mob.(only doing it /WAR or with BRD)
WS wont be as high as with the common setup, but being able to skillchain off of meditate every 2.5 minutes and use sekkenoki will definetly make up for the loss in damage from WS. Soboro SAMs feel me on this one.
I have great experiences from playing SAM with COR in merits, getting 20TP per hit has to be the best 2handed melee experiance/ DoT i know of. Only DoT that would possibly outparse this SAM related would have to be relic.(From occasional 2.5 damage and the omfg 3.0 60%STR mod on kaiten)
If your having problems hitting, say it be byakko in sky or Dark Ixion, pop some Marrylary pizza for alittle more attack and acc, if your getting over 88% i say toss on some red curry or w/e is highest attack boosting food.THink you need massive attack to cap on curry though, I personaly never /WAR on SAM so attack is usualy sitting 450ish /DRG or /DNC.
This setup is not for everyone I know, most pieces probaly taking up your entire time you'll be playing FFXI, HA, but its like any other ubber piece in the game worth going for imo.
