While Fyn's approach to it was a bit blunt, the reason that he brought that up is a valid one. Darrt, I ask that you not use that kind of language, since even though Fyn may have been a bit blunt, your reaction to it was in the wrong.
In Abyssea, weaponskills that deal critical damage are almost universally better than ones that don't given the Atmas that are available. While you may not have Drakesbane for various reasons, Dragoon still gets a decently powerful crit weaponskill in the form of Skewer, which given the right Atmas, will end up doing more than what Stardiver would be able to dish out in most situations.
That being said, what I would personally recommend for Stardiver would be Atma of the Voracious Violet, Atma of Apocalypse/Atma of the Alpha and Omega (I'd recommend AoA though), and Atma of the Smiting Blow.
VV for the +STR, the DA, and the Regain (the first two primarily)
AoA for the Triple Attack
Smiting Blow for the TP bonus and weaponskill accuracy (Stardiver's damage varies with TP, so that's going to increase the damage a fair amount)
Stardiver will do a decent amount of damage in Abyssea with the proper Atmas and will come close to things like Skewer and Drakesbane with crit atmas on, but in most situations those two will pull ahead.
