Flame, counter-flame, reasonable argument, flame...
I believe Losttroll wrote a guide about WAR subjobs. DRG was among them. This whole freakin' post degenerated from a fairly informative guide to show other people one person's path as he has experienced it from his own parties to a sushi>meat fiasco. Not to mention that there are people here that are saying, in effect, "Despite the fact that you have taken WAR from 30-X level using this sub, I still believe that you are a complete fake and need to be using a tradtional, conformative sub that everyone else and their brother uses rather than trying something radical and putting forth the effort to make it effective."
If he wants to /DRG, he can /DRG. He already noted that he has to seek longer for the fact that his chosen subjob is not one of the "standard" choices, and accepts that payoff. If he wants to write a guide explaining what he has experienced so that others can perhaps try it out for themselves, then that's his **** business. If you don't agree with the concepts that he has clearly laid out, then don't freakin' sub /DRG and do your own **** thing, but don't come here and bash the **** out of the man for trying something different and writing a "journal" of his experiences in order to show others that it can be used effectively.
You're also flaming him for the stupid meat vs. sushi argument. He already noted it. If he uses Sushi, he switches to axes where he feels the accuracy is more necessary.
Let's take a common phrase and look at it in retrospect:
"All the attack in the world doesn't mean crap if you can't hit the target."
And in retrospect:
"All the accuracy in the world doesn't mean crap if you keep hitting the thing for 0 damage."
He's found that at 70-80% accuracy his damage is equal to or greater than people parsing 80-90% accuracy that are getting less damage per hit than he is getting with his GAX. Ergo, the slight reduction in his accuracy, in his mind, is justified since he makes up for the loss by causing more damage per individual swing. You also have to consider the fact that /DRG gets this nifty Accuracy Bonus, so why beat a dead horse and eat accuracy food and wear accuracy gear to go with your accuracy job trait and have all this insane accuracy and lack the ability to do significant damage?
If you sub something different and radical, you might have to take a different and radical approach as to what gear you equip and what food you use. The truth is in the parse. If he parses and sees that his numbers stack up, then he is making it work.
So, how about we close this thing by saying:
"If you don't want to /DRG, then don't. Continue going /MNK or /NIN and eating all the sushi in the world. If you want to /DRG, then give it a try and see for yourself how YOU fare with different foods and equipment setups."
Until you actually get off your **** and try /DRG yourself, you have absolutely no room to tell someone else that HAS tried it why it cannot work, nor can you tell them "based on your own extensive experience with /DRG" what they should and shouldn't be eating.
