There isnt a crazy DA rate on the jumps themselves, they just give ~2x (spirit. 33ish), ~3x(soul. 50ish) tp of a normal attack. However if you DO double attack, they become 4x(~66ish) and 6x(100tp with 6hit build) tp. The only reason mine DA so often is because i have a Bradamante OAT lance which just got a HUGE boost imo from this. virtually half my soul/spirit jumps are DA.
Drg using all 3 jumps at a 2:30 timer (spiritx2, soulx1) will net around 116ish TP AND do 3 jumps worth of damage. Just for comparison, fully buffed meditate as sam main is also 2:30 recast and nets 160 tp. They get ~40+ more TP and do no damage, we have -40 tp but 3 jumps on their face for damage. If a gekko avg 1k damage, (over simplified numbers for ease), that 40TP is worth about 400 damage. Can 2x spirit and 1x soul jumps do 400 damage? I think yes. Meditate as /sam is also 10tp every 30 sec (60tp, 3 min but were taling about 2:30 recasts so equivalent of 50tp). So drg/sam gets ~180TP from JAs and 3 jumps worth of damage every 2:30. THATS HAWT!
It gets better (for a few of us anyway with OAT lance). I have a 40% DA bradamante with brutal and pole grip. Turns into ~45%ish DA rate for me on jumps. ill say 50 just for simple numbers. that ~120 tp from jumps becomes ~180ish - a few. Toss med back in and its 230ish (closer to 220ish as weve been rounding up). 230ish TP every 2.5 min. Lets say we waste some of it (can save it sometimes with sekka, but we cant save it all!) so lets round that down from 230 to 200 tp every 2:30. Thats the equivalent of about 1 WS for every spirit jump. I like to think of it as a drakesbane button. Over time we basically can get 1 Drakes for every 1:15. Thats the time of our jumps. Basically, long winded roundabout way of saying: They could remove all 3 of our jumps and replace them with a drakesbane button on a jump timer (1:15). You push a button and get a FREE drakes every 1:15. It gets better! You also supress enmity 3x in 2.5 min, AND you get the actual damage of the 3 jumps. The TP alone is just 2 free drakes if you have the OAT lance.
I just find it personally hilarious that I out TP sams by a rather wide margin so long as I keep a simple 6hit with my OAT lance. The TP spam with Bradamante/corseca is completely ludicrous.
EAT IT SAMS :P
I really cant get over just how much obscene TP this all is.
