Pole Grip: Double Attack+2%
Sword Strap: Two-handed weapon delay-3%
So I was always under the impression that Sword Strap was trash because it lowers TP gain and doesn't do anything for WS. I've been using Pole Grip full time which I believe is the superior choice. However, recently I've been forced to sub /NIN and it got me thinking. Wouldn't Sword Strap be better in that situation? You can't get a 6-hit in any reasonable kind of setup on /NIN, so the lesser TP gain shouldn't be a problem. I'm sure we all remember that old graph of Double Attack vs Haste. Would be somewhat annoying to carry a different grip for each sub but if the increase is good enough, it'll be worth doing.
Any input on this or anyone able to do the math? If it's better, by just how much?
