It dawned upon me this evening when we were testing the new abilities out on ZNMs that there were some weapons introduced that were based on a SMN actually leaving an avatar out. These were from "Waking the Beast", which as I recall got little to no attention- bad drop rates and needing an alliance full of SMNs was a bit on the unhappy side. But with the popularity of zerging tough targets, it dawned on me- here is something intriguing. Of most note:
[Ranged] All Races
DPS: 6.67 DMG:40 Delay:360 STR+3 Ranged Attack+10 Latent effect: Increases rate of critical hits
LV 72 WAR RDM THF PLD DRK BST RNG SAM NIN
Given that it's plausible now that a SMN could augment a zerg party with Warcry + Double Attack favor, does that piece become comparable to anything else a DD could throw in the slot? Garuda's Scythe looked like the only viable piece from the list for a zerg, but Garuda's evasion favor doesn't seem to help as much as Ifrit's Double Attack favor.
Will we see renewed interest in these fights, you think?
Would be nice... I'm still sitting on the Carby prime fight myself. X)
