STP PLM Lv.50Follow

This is probably a really dumb question, but I'm going to give it a shot anyway.

I know I probably shouldn't be focusing on a PLM X-hit at level 50 but I was just wondering-

I want to use "Kamayari+1" and a 7hit build, it says that I'll require 21STP to achieve a 7hit with the NQ "Kamayari", will this 21STP still suffice? Or will I need more since the +1 version has a lower delay?

Right now I have...

Shinimusha Haidate +6
Shinimusha Hara-ate +9
Rajas Ring +5
Ecphoria Ring +1
Carbonara +6

This is +27STP, this should be enough right?

I still plan on macroing ACC gear into Penta WS (8/8PLM Merits) but was wondering is STP the better path or should I TP in regular acc/atk gear? I don't want all of this hard work gaining STP gear to go to waste :P

Kamayari+1 gives you 9.9 TP per hit with absolutely no STP. Therefore you need 45 STP to get that to 14.3 TP per hit, which gets you your 7-hit build. (Maths: 9.9*1.45 = 14.355, all decimals after the first are dropped)

You get 20 STP from JTs, so you need another 25 from gear. The gear you listed would indeed get you slightly more than the requisite amount. However, you'd have to keep all that gear for WS as well, otherwise you'd lose the extra TP needed.

It should also be noted that when you fight birds (which you will, a lot), you're not going to be using carbonara.

Personally, I wouldn't bother, as you lose too much acc/att/haste. Get yourself a soboro! Rajas alone puts it at a nice 7-hit, and most people would agree it's pretty comparable to a polearm build, even on birds.

Edit: typo

Thanks! I think I will get a Soboro but maybe keep the STP gear incase I fight something with abnormally high defense so I can equip a different 450 delay GKT with a bit heavier ATK. I need to make use of that STP gear somehow!

The thing I find about Soboro, which irritates me, is that a lot of people want me to use Hagun because I am feeding the birds too much TP and the Melees are takin "too much Damage." Anyone else run into issues like this? I like to use Soboro, but I've had like 4 parties ask me to use something else, including one of them a penta spamming Sam lol. Thus why I am finishing of Polearm to give me something else to use. :p

P.S. Didn't mean to derail... I just didn't want to start a new thread since I have a few up already. :P
