Is it worth it, specifically the Overload Suppression JT? I want to know because that weapon is the only reason for me to even consider trying the Mythic quest. Before I even attempt to start a quest that I probably won't get done before the servers are shut down, I would like an honest opinion of them.

Unfortunately I don't have the Kenkonken, but Overload Suppression is definitely worth the effort. It's one of the best mythic weapons and it even surpasses most relics.

While it's technically possible to overload still, you'd really have to try for it... takes like 2 minutes non-stop spamming a single maneuver from zero burden.

The multi-attack only works on the first hand though, which is a bit of a bummer... but at least it works on both master and maton, so it's still two extra hits ;)

Kenkonken
Theres some basic info.
Basically, They're awesome especially if you consider the Trial of the Magians upgrades it from +17DMG to +22DMG which is simply amazing for any PUP weapon.

If you're a Taurus, the shape of the weapon is an additional bonus! =D

unless the upcoming updates change a lot, i think it's fair to say that the deciding factor between whether or not you want to get the mythic should be the effort involved in getting it. what i mean is, it's a great and worthwhile item that requires a lot of time, effort, and possibly luck to obtain. if you're willing to do all that stuff, you'll be rewarded with an amazing weapon, though you also might quit the game because you feel you've beaten it (happens to a lot of relic holders).

edit: i still think this post is unclear. what i'm trying to say is that there's no reason to further look into how good the weapon is (though if you get it, you do want to investigate how to fully utilize it).

a) it's very difficult to compare so much effort to a weapon bonus. i mean, if it raises your DoT by 10% is that not enough, but 15% is enough? never overload, is that enough? if not, would it be enough if it were just a bit cheaper to upgrade? i don't think these questions are reasonable or worthwhile; either you want to make the Big Effort for the Good Weapon or not, period.

b) you can rest assured that kenkonken is one of the better relic/mythics in the game. it's not like claustrum (useless) or even spharai (solid upgrade, but not game-changing besides the fact that you do more damage).
