Maybe SE is updating the Fay weapons so they dont look like every other Black-style weapon already in the game.

hi2u Skystrider, Bourdonasse, Gae Bolg, Fay lance, etc.

Sarissa RareEx
[Main] All Races
DPS: 11.36 DMG:96 Delay:507
LV 75 DRG

http://wiki.ffxiclopedia.org/wiki/Sarissa


These new weapons are basically mini-relics. They requires a DMG1 delay 999 base weapon which drops from a Fomor HNM and a bunch of expensive items to upgrade to it's final form. It's possible that there will be a pain-in-the-ass timesink as well.

You make it sound like we have any idea how to upgrade these weapons. Also, they're not max delay. And GTFO DPS.

Just as it, it has the ability of having a 6 hit build with the use of E. Ring Rajas, and Brutal allowing for Ares's owners to full time their Ares's.

Also allows for the use of an acc/atk ammo slot versus a white tathlum for Valks.

Pretty decent, it's like a Gae Assail -1.

Gae Bolg isn't as bad as you may think. It's a possible 5 hit weapon and jumping with it and select barone/conte grants ridiculous TP returns, especially on double attacking jumps.

Anyways, there's no way this can be viewed as Gae Bolg +1. Being that it creates a 6 hit so easily, and has the current highest none relic damage base in the game.

Plus, it looks tight.

delay does contribute to damage though.

As does 1 DMG, and being able to use a stronger body piece like Ares's over Askar. The collective benefit would be something to account for more, than the lost 34th hit you would of gained, if you had -15 delay that eventually gets lost by disengaging and switching targets/running to targets. If the effect is barely noticeable it'll be even more so unnoticeable in a parser.

The collective attack and str you gain from a stronger Body such as Ares's would be reflected more on parser or even by your eye parser.

Of course, this is speaking in regards to a weapon that is not V. Fork. Since the DA3% Delay, and use of Ares's body are all prime equipment pieces. V. Fork with a White Tathlum could perform the same way as Sarissa + E. Ring + Ares's Body however yes, V.Fork would win.

In anycase, if you're mainly focused on the 551 delay of Gae Bolg, then yeah... it's an issue and I believe it accounts for additional hits a lot faster than a 15 delay difference. The difference is practically 9 hits versus 8 hits. 8 hits being the Gae Bolg and 9 hits being anything else.

However the difference between 15 delay, would be an additional hit every 33-34 hits or so.

Don't forget Aurum Cuirass. The upgrade from Aurum to Ares's would be smaller than the upgrade from Askar and that would somewhat diminish the point of using a slightly worse weapon just to wear Ares's.

It's very likely there will be some involvement of augments with these new weapons though.

It seems the crafting materials the Fomor NM's drop along with the damaged weapon are the materials for the Aern Weapons.
