Correct answer is keep axe and Gaxe lvled. Use axe until Sturmwind(your best ws for a while). Keep using Gaxe but keep both leveled. By the time you hit 55 you will know when to use axe(rampage) and great axe respectively.

SHIELD BREAK wants a word with you. Sturmwind, in comparison, falls by the wayside.

What this man said. Please, do not let the larger damage number from Sturmwind fool you, SHIELD BREAK is the correct answer until level 60.

Everyone always (properly) advocates shield break, but they don't mention that some mobs are immune to it. I think the only one of which you'd actually exp on before 60 is gigas in qufim. But it's something to be noted, I would say.

Excellent point. You may use Sturmwind on Gigas, and only on Gigas.

edit: Unless there is another Gaxe user in the party whom is already using SHIELD BREAK, then you can use Sturmwind too.

Also, be prepared for the "lol why are you using shield brake?! steermwnd is better!" people. They are stupid and you are not stupid for using it. They don't realize that it helps even their sushi-eating asses.

Welcome to the Mead Hall, Tashi. You sir, are "doinitrite" as they say.

The reason why Shield Break is the best lower level WS is because it lowers the evasion of the monster by 40, which results in a 20% improvement in hit rate for everyone engaged.

You may be underwhelmed by the damage numbers compared to Sturmwind, but the overall increase in damage for everyone else easily makes up for the difference. And remember to use it at the beginning of the fight, even if you have to save TP from the previous mob.
