Hey Guys.

What should the best possible average Penta Thrust Damage be landing at with optimal WS Penta Thrust Gear?

Atm im wearing Ebon gear with Bird attack and accuracy evoliths and landing 900 avera Penta Thrusts as SAM/DRG but some how I feel the dmg could be much better.

Im using Engetsuto (dont have tomoe) and I have 4 polearm merits.

assuming capped ACC...

900 / 4.75 = 189.47 damage per hit. divided by 1.25 (bird bonus) that's 150. if base damage is around 130, this would mean that cRatio is around 1.154, which vs birds is around 490 ATT. so, you need more ATT (or, if your ATT is usually much higher than 500 or if mages regularly diaII/III like they should, you need more ACC and are missing too many hits, bringing your average down).

the best possible penta average will depend more on buffs (and debuffs) than on your gear. food, sub choice, and gear are all important, but once you have a solid setup with enough ACC and ATT to justify using polearm in the first place, most upgrades aren't going to be huge. to illustrate, adding 10 STR to penta only adds something like 1.5% to your WS average.

Also, Penta parsed avg will almost always be lower due to "overkill" (first couple of hits kill the mob, so last don't have a chance to do dmg and be recorded).
I don't believe in good guys versus bad guys anymore… I only see a plethora of states acting in self interest… with varying ethics and moral standards of course, but self-interest nonetheless
