as a DD, I can say with pretty good certainty that if voidstorm is +3, melees are gonna want firestorm.
for those of you who don't know how str/dex work(mage mains who've never leveld a melee job, and I mean this politely, not trying to sound rude)
For 1h weapons: 2str:1atk, so 3str:1.5 attack, 2 if the melee has str as an odd number, the same 2:1 applies to dex:acc
This means: Dagger, Sword, Katana, Axe, Club, and includes h2h, and iirc, 2str:1ranged atk as well, though r.acc is decided by AGI, not dex, also using the 2:1 ratio
for 2h weapons: 4str:3atk, so 3str:2.25atk, 3atk if the melee has str as an odd number, again, the same ratio works for dex, 4dex:3acc
This Means: Great Axe, Great katana, Great sword, Scythe, Polearms, Staves
good melees, save a few jobs, gear with this order of priority: Haste > Acc > Atk > Str > Dex, ad usually macro in acc or str for their ws(again, depending on the job)
It may vary from melee to melee, but in general, you'll probably get more bang for your buck with firestorm, since str+3 dex+3 is easy to get on a piece of gear, but str+7 or dex+7 are not.

Am I the only one who clicked on this thread expecting actual baby photos [of Jinte]? o.O
Except if it were baby photos, it would be like looking at before and afters of Michael Jackson. Only instead of turning into a white guy, he changes into a chick!
