Well with SE raiding the +crit damage cap to 100 I decided to take another look at crit damage atma's + /THF and I was surprised. CA Efflux SA VC at 0TP was doing 6K+ on regular monster and 3~4.5K on the Ironclad giant in Abyssea Ully (the one for the Omega II pop). Was dealing the same damage on Omega II, but honestly I preferred to stay the fck away from that guy. Which brings me to my second part, I did a quick and dirty CB build using my regular STR + Blue Skill orientated macro along with Prot V / Cocoon / Tacos. From 20 feet I was able to SA CB for 1~2K and CA SA for 3K, toss in Efflux for closer to 4K. Since this guy has a ton of high damage AoE's and annoying status ailments, I prefer to stay out of range and just plink away with CB spam over time and run in for VC / QC / GR / Diss when we proc Red !! on it. All in All seemed to work out really well, I'd suggest anyone who is doing NM's with a group to look into a /THF Crit Damage build (RR SS and possibly VV).

Nothing in this game is impossible if you set yourself to the task of actually doing it. Even dumb people can only hold you back for so long.
when you're hefting something that deadly, you don't miss - mobs get the **** out of the way instead...
