one word, awesome!

went from using striking flourish rudra's storm and doing 500-4.5k in abyssea with the very hit or miss crit chance, to doing consistent 5500-6k

i love it

Yeah, this is the best buff for our job since they introduced Tier 2 merits.

Looks good, but I'm still waiting for a flourish that will trump reversing FMs into another WS and SCing. So far we still don't have that...

Heh, depends how you use it. =p

>2 FMs -> Climactic -> Presto -> Box Step -> NFR -> Rudra's -> Reverse -> Rudra's

Both Rudra's would be better than our best Rudra's with Striking Flourish, and both would crit. For those of you doing math at home, you're looking at 7k WSs in Abyssea followed by 10k skillchains.

Bah, this makes me want to retire my DNC because obtaining a Twashtar is out of my reach.


How inferior do you think a Daka +2 is for Rudra's Storm spamming?

In terms of WS damage, Twashtar and Daka +2 are going to be pretty comparable in Abyssea.

Also, since my last post I thought of a way to extend the chain of awesome:
5 FMs -> Building -> Climactic -> Presto -> Box Step -> NFR -> Rudra's -> Reverse -> Rudra's

With the right Atmas/Attack buffs, I bet you could do over 25k damage with this combination. Alas, if only people ever wanted to kill Abyssea NMs quickly. xD

Or /SAM and go 5FM's + 200TP > CF Sekka > NFR> STEP> Rudras > Rudras > RF > Rudras > TP WING > Rudras

(TP wing + last Rudras is merely for lulz.)

(and since you will have hate for a while Auster Staff + Seigan/3eye)

Unfortunately, Rudra's -> Rudra's can only make Darkness once. I try to explain it here. It's easiest to think of double darkness as a level 4 skillchain.

With just food, this is capable of killing most low-tier NMs:
Sekka -> Climactic Flourish -> NFR -> Presto -> Step -> Evisceration -> Rudra's -> Reverse -> Rudra's

Also, did some very preliminary testing with Building Flourish (easier now that I'm one-shotting all the monsters with a crit) and it looks like it might give as much as 10% Attack with no merits.

i might be doing something wrong. i don't have Rudra's so i'm just using evis. it's not really doing more damage for me than striking > DE. is it only useful for people with emp weapons?

It only makes the first hit crit. Try Climactic -> 300 TP Shark Bite or Climactic -> Pyrrhic Kleos

My abyssea PK hit around 2k atm, Climactic might be worth looking into for that. Still less than PK -> Evis + Dark, but might be fun on a lark.

I haven't been able to see numbers from this that rival using Reverse and getting darkness. Guessing this change is Rudra's or GTFO.
