From MNK to WARFollow

Hey Alla WARs,

I am a long time MNK and have recently been leveling my WAR. Unfortunately, most of my parties have been synced down to 37-40 and recently I've decided that I want to stop that and hopefully start xping from 50+. My WAR is currently 58.

I have been focusing on a meat build for my MNK and am wondering if, at this stage, I should be doing the same thing for WAR. Should my main focus be ACC and ATK elsewhere? I've no idea why but I'm nervous about gearing WAR :/

Much thanks.

I was the same as you, coming from MNK to WAR. I can tell you from experience that you gear them in exactly the same way.

Acc > Att > STR > DEX.

A large ammount of something on the right(Say, twice as much) will trump whatever is directly on the left, imo.

Let me see if I can dig out my first WAR forum post...


Here you go. Ignore my noobishness, I was young and impressionable. Smiley: laugh

Also, make sure your Great Axe is capped first, before worrying about other stuff.

Using great axe, it's either meat or pizza+1 (NQ pizza is not to be considered), sushi is never an option*

If you don't merit your WAR, GA is much much more important than axes or swords. Even if you plan to merit WAR, GA is still the best option.**

*note: when I say this, I imply you know how to gear appropriately... acc rings, haub, acc neckpiece, etc for TP.

**note: STFU, YES IT IS, STOP ARGUING THE MOST OBSCURE SITUATIONAL SITUATIONS FOR AXE OR SWORD

acc > att > str > dex is correct. war tends to swap out more str in ws than mnk. you will undoubtedly come across gear on war which you may wonder is better than what you already have.

take, for example since you are about to hit 59, walkure mask vs sapahi turban. 6att vs 3st. general rules says att > str but thats a big chunk of str. i use a method which may or may not be 100% correct so take it with a grain of salt. for gear upgades/sidegrades i try to convert all stats into a single value, att.

from what i have read from the great math wizards around here are some other general rules i choose to follow:

1 acc = ~3att
1 STR = ~2att
1 dex = .5 acc = ~1.5att

so on the example above of walkure mask vs sapahi turban you can see they have about the same impact on your DoT. I chose, and recommend, the sapahi (abtal if you can afford it) because it also effects your ws modifiers.

there are some other gear upgrades/sidegrades i have done this with like NQhauby + pcc vs HQhauby + chivchain and the popular 'what pants should i wear until 75' of royal knights breeches vs think breeches vs exorcist hose vs barone:

royal knights breeches- 2 str 2 dex 3 att = ~10 att
think breeches- 2 acc 5 att = ~11 att
exorcist hose- 3 str 3 acc = ~15 att <-winner
barone- 2 str 6 att = ~10 att

My first post on the war forum was before your first post on the war forum.

Also, one of my earliest posts had 170 replies, and resulted in every one of my posts being sub-defaulted to bring me from guru to scholar and pikko saying:

Aaah, okay. ^_^ Thanks very much.

>.> I've been trying to keep both Axe & GAxe skilled but orz... My NPC can only cure me so much. Sadly I'm sitting @ 134 for both weapons.

@Red I've got access to some great ACC pieces due to MNK. ^^ And yes, I TP in ACC and prance around in misc. :D

@Nil Voting if I can because you're a MNK/WAR, too! ^^

Are most other DD jobs the same? (This is to prevent me from asking in every single job forum >.>) ACC > ATK > STR > Etc.?

I'm only winning because the other nominees are either unknowns or Trolls. (Kenage in the fomor camp).

Ken should take over the world, but he's too drunk and/or lazy.

Probably both.

See also, Solrain's sig.

in fairness, though, Kenage is too awesome to take over the world. It could not contain his awesome, nor could it contain the awesome of his awesome guitar.

Solar system sounds about right, though.

Even if he did take control over the whole solar system, he'd just end up controlling just the Earth anyway. Unless there are actually Martians on Mars and unless Klatuu lives on Jupiter, then it's kinda moot to own the entire Sol system. Perhaps owning the galaxy would fit better? There has to be other life forms in our galaxy. I refuse to believe that the rest of the Milky Way is just empty space.
