If that's the case, then that is pretty amazing. If it stacks with Elegy and the spell Slow, I'd totally aim for that one. ****, I take that back, I'd aim for it regardless.

basically the way it works:
Element Damage +# = ~cap on elemental damage with near 100% proc rate
Stats Effect +# = % of enstatus procrate

so like, fire damage +14 would mean you'd do a fairly consistent ~14 dmg enfire, while paralyze +14 would give you enparalyze with a 14% proc rate.

Anyway, Erlking's Kheten is turning out to be one of the sexier augmented items, though that one's taking a back seat for me, since you can get +10 h2h skill on the pup weapon Smiley: drool2

+10 Macc on a staff is 'absolute horse sh*t', only saving grace of the mage ones is that they have a chance of having fast cast which would make them a nice macro swap for buff rotations.

So far the only augmented weapons that might give status quo weapons a run for their money are the BOW and GKT. Pet jobs like DRG and PUP are finding -pet dmg taken and SMN's are getting great staves with -BP and -perpetuation and pet MAB. Sadly the gax, scythe, axe, katana and thf daggers have all seemed lack luster in the dmg department compared to the status quo weapons we allready have (perdu, moli, senji etc)

No. +2 or +3 MAcc would be absolute horse ****. MAcc+10 showed the possiblity that the augments could come in some worthwhile amount.

Completely missing the point. If you could augment something with a large boost like +10Macc, then it's possible you can get other stats in equally good qualities. It doesn't matter how it compares to old equipment in this sense.

And it seems I was correct, the augments do seem to be able to come in worthwhile amounts. BP Delay -5 and/or Perp Cost -3 on a smn staff, STP+15 on a GK, Ratk+17 WSAcc+7 on a Rng bow etc etc.

The presence of Fast Cast on mage weapons is kinda awesome, for the types who write macros that use that stuff at the start, then swap "real" gear in mid-cast. +Enhancing skill on sch weapons is also quite nice. There are definitely some real winners for mages.

I do this on brd. For a while I was using Genbu's Kabuto and S.kote to force my minstrel's ring too. Some idiots on BG I don't think realise you don't have to start adn end the song in the same gear.

Not that it matters because Sam doesn't need fastcast gear. And that's the only important job.

What kind of stats would you need on the G.Axe for it to beat Perdu's 5acc 10att?

For example, would 1 base damage and 2 double attack be enough?

We know from BG screens so far that the known max for each category is DMG+6 (base damage 97), STR+5, Double Attack+2, Att+5.

We know from BG screens so far that the known max for each category is DMG+6 (base damage 97), STR+5, Double Attack+2, Att+5.
Let's see what the effective difference is:

Base damage: +2~3 (75% 2, 25% 3)
Attack: -1~2 (75% 1, 25% 2)
Accuracy: -5
DA: +2

The base damage increase is going to be somewhat under 2%, as is the DA+. (Total it lands somewhere in the general range of 3.5%.)

Accuracy is going to be at least a 2.6% loss (dropping from capped to capped-minus-5). If the attack is enough to drop your damage by more than 0.8%, you're sitting at below 266 attack (which means "no, it won't drop your damage by that much").

I'll leave it to someone else to figure things with a "normal" build as to how high your hit rate needs to be for this to win over Perdu, but with ideal augments (that'll never happen) it should if you're capping accuracy with Perdu (but only marginally - the ~0.4% you're looking at amounts to an extra 1 damage per hit).

Slightly off topic. Are grips augmentable, and if so, seems like a cheap way to add some stats to pole grip, ect.

If they were, we'd see at least one with Double Attack -2% +2 Earth Resist. And I would laugh, and laugh, and laugh.

It's because BG is full of "fail-litism".

SAM is important, only pchan cares about pup weapons and smns need every little increase they can get because it's one of the worst jobs.

Not sure how many people seen this but Erlking's Kheten seems to have 3 base augment slots (no one's seen more than 3) in which so far you get:

1st slot:
+1-6 damage

2nd & 3rd slot:
+3-5 str
+5-7 att
+1-2 DA
enspell +10-20 (Not all elements have been confirmed)
en-disease +6
resist slow +1-3

Enspell damage seems to trigger about an estimated 55-75% for an average of 75-80% the base + to enspell (all the tests have been small samples on weaker monsters for the most part.)

Personally I'm not 100% given the enspell damage vs DA but I think the one I'd strive for is.

97 damage, 504 delay, +5 str, +2 DA

Sam is an awesome job (I wouldn't call it any more important than War or any other DD), I guess what I don't understand is why, if they already have a weapon as VASTLY overpowered as Hagun, why everyone is worried about a weapon that will obviously be worse than Hagun or at BEST POSSIBLE as good.

It boggles my ******* mind.

There's just sooooooo many Sams now. As for the Pup weapon I don't really cares except like 2-3 people posting but the Smn staff is only beaten by Mythic and even then mythic doesn't have -BP which is like haste for Smn damage.

The thing about BG and things like this is that people don't necessarily look for the best of the best, but other less worse alternatives. I'm sure people are obsessed with Rindomaru b/c they don't want to pay for Haguns or can't.
