Sumeru or Atlas? O_OFollow

I had started my sumeru, and when i went back to look at the trial again, i saw atlas.
now idk which i wanna do lol

sumeru would be a bit easier and less time consuming than atlas, but atlas has higher DMG and lower delay plus STR and ATT..

question i guess is
is atlas worth the extra time? or is sumeru just as good?

Considering that killing during weather now gives 5 points /kill, Atlas might be quicker than Sumeru.

Either way, i dont know how to answer your question. Both look like fairly decent weapons.

Honestly as long as you have *one* upgraded you should be ok. Trying to maximize each time the level cap goes up is going to be troublesome, so I would suggest pick one and keep it up to date (unless you want to main warrior, then you may do a few to have options based on situation). Good luck.

Do you know if this is the case on all day/weather trials, or if it's only to a certain point?

Any trial that has weather as one of the requirements will get 5/kill. That includes day or weather trials.

edit: if the correct weather effect is up.

#9Ahrana, Posted: Sep 16 2010 at 12:52 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Swordchucks and dual axes are dead to me. Polearm on slashing resistant monsters would be reasonable, but those are few and far between.

Also, if you happen to meet both the weather and day criteria for a kill, you get 6 points.

I'm starting to wonder whether Sumeru's +10% WS damage can over take Atlas's 6 damage, 8str, 28atk, and 6 delay. I honestly don't know which way it would fall. Any other math heads care to way in?

6 less delay on the Atlas sucks... makes 6-hit a ****

I'm also trying to find a decent way to compare them both, and i am failing at that. Will post if i can ever make some reasonable calculations.
