I leveled WAR long time ago as axe/sword and neglected GAxe completely. Now that I got bored with man/joy I have made the push to switch weapons. I should have GA skill capped by end of this week. I know with Axe/Sword the key word is Haste Haste Haste. I am looking for help on what I am missing to max the usefullness of GA.

I only use WAR for Merit and Nyzul Isle, occasional LS fun. Lets assume only /NIN.

I should have 4/3/3 merits done this week too. With all that said, please help me with gear.

Weap: Byakkos, Rune and Pole Grip
Range: Bomb Core
Head: Walahra Turban / O.Hat
Neck: Chiv Chain / PCC
Ears: Brutal / Fowling
Body: Hauby+1
Hands: Dusk / AF2
Rings: Rajas / Ecphoria / Snipers
Back: Foragers
Belt: Swift
Legs: Byakkos
Feet: AF (for now)

Any help would be appreciated.

The same gear set that works for dual wield works for great axe. The only real notable differences would be what you equip in your hands (obviously) an earring (Suppanomimi for something else), and a necklace (Fortitude Torque). Beyond that, it's still pretty much Haste Haste Haste.

Edit: Oh, and Thick is better than AF Feet. Dusk, Amir, Unicorn, and Aurum are also better, but require a bit more work. Aurum is the best.

People still get 4/3/3 merits? I thought we disproved it's usefulness a few months ago.

Now, now. It doesn't matter whether your merit setup increases your damage marginally. What matters is what you enjoy, and what looks best to you. If it's a play style you enjoy, then go for it.

Main thing I see is the AF feet blow nuts. Get Dusk asap and work towards Aurum if you can. Other than that get an Assault Earring to wear instead of Fowling. Also try to work for Perdu Voulge.

Also also, you dont need to wear ecophoria ring, with the 6 Stp in gear you have a 7 hit build with /Nin and a 6 hit if you ever go /Sam.

Yeah but ecphoria ring is so cheap....

It's what I'm earing at the moment opposite my one woodsman's, with the eventual plan being get a rajas to replace it.

They're not that bad, at least up to where you can start getting into merit gear like Amir and haste options and such.

Yeah, it's important to remember that until recently, they were being widely acknowledged as "sufficient". They haven't changed, there are just now better options out there in a level range that severely lacked options before. So yay.

Well I know they are not terrible at their level (altough there are better option before or slightly after) they do blow nuts at 75. There are so many better options that having these is just a sin. Dusk is going to do a GREAT deal more in his setup (going from 17% haste to 19%) than the AF (cause he already will have 19% DA after merits and gear). So while I somewhat apologize for saying they blow nuts completely...they are not that good and really do suck at 75.

A lot of people already capped their cat 1's. I am doing it, but after I cap my cat 2's. if you already had a 4/3/3, you have to erase 3 upgrades and get 15 more merits. Personally, I'd rather cap War Charge first.

Well I am currently only 2/2/2...What is the best combo then? 5/5 and forget DA?

Since I wont be /SAM, should i forget about +Stp since I cant achieve a faster hit rate and wear sniper/rajas?

If you are curious about WHY 5/5DA/Zerk is best, it is linked in Warrior Links page as "Warrior Merits updated xxxxxx(whenever, it is a recent date)"

But it is, it's best for everything.

When you get good enough gear you can start saving aggressor only for evasive mobs like nin or thf mamools in merit parties. :D
