Yay or Nay?

I'm assuming in anything that is >meripo, sniper is better (with rajas). For lower stuff, Headman's ring.

Hmmmm?

Three skill is 3 attack and 2.7 accuracy... no, just no. Never.

Rajas + Blitz = accuracy capped.

Rajas + acc ring = not accuracy capped.

If you are accuracy capped and don't have Blitz, wear a Flame Ring, it's an fSTR, sometimes 2, and 3.75 attack.

While this is on topic I've always wondered, what happens after you break 300 skill? Do you hit some sort of magical godly tier of awesomeness that's reserved only for the elite? Or is it just meaningless bullsh*t like I'm assuming it is?

I get that it's probably town gear, but I mean... that's a trash drop from that SCNM. Why would he show it off, even if he does use Blitz or something? I think it's more likely that he's just another LS leader taking advantage of the bank, and it makes me sad to see a Bravura in the hands of somebody so ill-informed as to make that one bad decision with the only slot that isn't handed to you.

You should ask him what he uses for a 6 hit hen /sam. I'm betting it's not pretty.

Some people are really good at obtaining/hoarding gear. Some people are really good at maximizing what gear they can obtain with the time they have. Some people know thier job inside and out and stay on top of what to do from moment to moment to increase output. Its a very rare to find someone who encompasses all of this.

for h2h skill, it would give you another base damage and be very good. for every other weapon, it does nothing at all (besides for what skill always does, of course). i want to assume that's what got OP confused, b/c surely everyone knows that a 3ATT 2ACC ring sucks and nothing happens at 300 GA skill.

Never said I was confused, as in the OP I even mention that obviously a sniper ring is better then anything else in an uncapped situation.

But having 4 (or 5) str in the ring slot would be better then headsman ring, since it's more attack/fstr on lower level mobs, where acc isn't a problem. That makes sense, but I thought I'd ask just cause this damn ring makes me sad in that it has no purpose.

But alas, I can't think of anything, and I think any hidden effects would have been found by now. Guess it is inv-1 after all =(

with capped ACC, blitz ring would definitely be the way. STR, ulthalam, even lolassailant's beat headsman if ACC capped unfortunately. no idea why they released that ring, and so late in the game. seems like yet another case of SE baiting people to use bad gear.

You're all missing the glaring point in all of this. ATK and ACC are a dime a dozen, but it's nearly impossible to increase your overall GAX skill. Obviously it's better because it's a higher number. Blitz ring sucks because one is the loneliest number.

but what about, using WS's before you learn them, while skilling up your WAR75 that you dinged into from level 50 syncs? that has to be worth something

You should be using SHIELD BREAK for skilling up anyway.

Correct. I'll just say now that the only special change you need to make to your gear while skilling up is purchasing the flat-out weakest, fastest weapon you can get your hands on (special mention for Hand-to-Hand which doesn't need weapons to skill up, but this is Great Axe so the ideal piece would be a Trainee Axe -- failing that, Butterfly)

By extrapolation this means that Headsman's Ring is always terrible.

This is the Internet. We can see words, but we can't hear voices. So tones are very elusive things.

It's like in geometry, if you try to map something 3D onto a 2D surface -- that square you just drew could be a top-down view of something five centimetres tall, or fifty metres. Or it could be a 2D square.

I'll try to find the post - a few people have posted detailed stats of Mamool in other forums - one being Kittyn in the Ninja forums iirc. For Colibri, the golden rule is "don't be a retard" and you'll outparse everyone in the PT and get chain 1,457,945 if people are paying attention.

Edit: Not trying to be mean at all, not calling anyone a retard specifically. Except for retarded people, I guess. Just gearing smart is what I mean!
