AF Feet or Thick SolleretsFollow

Hey all, just trying to decide if I want to use my AF Feet or Thick Sollerets. I'm just back to warrior lately and on a bit of a budget.

I had thought Thick feet would be better because of the +attack. In my head I had put the +2 accuracy as about equal to +1% double attack. However, several of my ls friends have been telling me the AF feet are better.

Thoughts? Suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

AF feet were obsolete the instant you hit 55.

You have stupid friends.

Thick.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

To elaborate on the WHY:

Unless you're going from having no DA at all to having some amount of DA (which is impossible with WAR gear due to the trait being active before any DA gear exists), one point of DA+ will always translate to less than a 1% increase to your DoT. Not only that, but the increase will remain static regardless of your hit rate, cRatio, etc.

For sake of simplicity, an increase to DA is estimated as (new swing rate per round)/(old swing rate per round). With 10% DA you have an average swing rate of 1.1 times per attack round, so estimating AF feet would give you 1.11/1.10 = 0.9% increase to DoT.

Now, look at accuracy. Hit rate is capped at 95%. Assuming you aren't already at the cap, the worst case scenario for accuracy+2 would be to bring you from 94% to 95% hit rate. Estimating in the same manner, 95%/94% = 1.06% increase to DoT. More fundamentally, the take away is that the best case scenario for 1 point of DA (no base DA->1% DA) will STILL lose to the worst case scenario for 1 point of hit rate (94->95% hit rate).

On a side note: If you take your co-workers to lunch and each of you have half a gallon of beer, dont expect them to be producing much on the afternoon.

My boss did just that.

Your boss sounds freakin' awesome. Reminds me of a friend at uni who was in a class with about six or seven other people, plus the professor teaching that class. Nobody was in the mood, including the professor, so between them, the class decided to just call it a day and hit the student union bar.

The professor in question, if I remember the story rightly, was first in, last out. Or if he wasn't, then it wouldn't have surprised me.

hen i was in college i had a calculus professor that we occasionally had to drag out of the bar if we wanted to have classes.

Occasionally as in: once a week.

Most of the times we ended IN the bar. Im just glad i never had to use Calculus 3.
