General rule is "work on combat skill first, then STR"

Info on what skill and STR do is readily available on wiki if you look for it.

STR will raise your WS dmg numbers more, overwhelm will raise your WS dmg numbers even more than that. GK skill will give you more WS (via additional acc) and extra melee dmg (via atk), both of which don't effect WS dmg in most situations. Overall GK skill will provide you more total dmg/merit point.

I fully meritd my SAM a while back, and really... Overwhelm did the most for me personally. But the GK skill helped my DoT more than my ES damage in most cercumstances, (altho i could see a bit of a difference with Rana strangely enough). STR i did last... meh... didnt do much... it just looks good being ELV SAM/WAR with 80 base STR ahah.

Combat skills are the best merits to focus on for any melee job - missing less is just huge. And theres the bonus atk in there. They wont raise your SAM WS damage, but they will improve all your other damage.

Atributes should be your last merits for ANY jobs. They cost too much, and the bonus they give is very small compared to anything else.

Particularly for SAM, Overwhelm is huge. Still not as great as raising combat skills, but certainly much stronger than STR.

hmmm, actually, since Zanshin decreases the relative worth of acc and our dmg is mostly WS once you get to the 3merits/2skll point getting the first three levels of overwhelm is probably better. STR should definitely be one of the last upgrades though.
