Just Got "Ukko's Fury"Follow

Hi, I'm Hex. You might remember me as the author of classic DRK Forum threads, such as "Just Got Quietus".

Anyway I finished Maschu +1 tonight and got Ukko's Fury. Earlier this evening I also got Razed Ruin. The two together are BEAST MODE, which I'm sure some of you knew. As FFXIclopedia points out, this WS is basically a 2 hit version of King's Justice (STR 50%, also both use Breeze Gorget), that can crit. Also inflicts Slow on it's target, which kinda isn't relevant because it tends to murder anything it hits. Allow me to demonstrate:

4.2k-4.9k, no outside buffs aside from Voracious Violet and Razed Ruins. If you don't have this GA yet, get it ASAP.

I am going for this next after i fnish my PDT Gax which I am puting together just for certain low man events and FC burn.

I have been waiting for 90 so i can solo all the trials on War.

Outside of WoE how long does it take? Assume I can devote 30 mins to 1 hour a day.

Could i do it in a month?

Drop PDT get a damaging Gaxe because you want to kill faster. FC burn typically uses Alexander/Fana drinks anyway, or a whm who can simply outcure the damage. For solo I might consider PDT GAxe but Atm my trials are tied up on staves :/

It's hands down the best WS WAR can get, and easily out damages Raging Rush and King's Justice outside of Abyssea. We are doing Dynamis-Buburimi tomorrow night, I'll try to remember to take some pics.

Since someone asked about damage outside of Abyssea....

We just did Dynamis-Buburimu and I took a few pics. This isn't "the best!" pics, this is typical damage on a handful of mobs. I just WSed and took the pic:

For those of you that don't feel like clicking the links, 1655-2855. And it never dipped below 1600....actually not only did it not hit below 1600, it broke 2000+ about 90% of the time. No outside buffs, no 2 hour, no COR, BRD, etc. Just Berserk and Yellow Curry, +60 STR in WS gear.

Screenshots are nice and shiny, but if at all possible, a parse comparing RR, KJ, and UF over roughly the same amount of time would be ideal. Anything else is eyeballing.

Uh....I understand people's obsession with parsers and the need to prove everything with facts but RR and KJ obviously don't average anywhere near the numbers I posted. I mean, can you as a WAR pull off 2k-2.9k WSs every time....not highs, I'm talking literally every WS....with either KJ or RR, with no outside buffs? No....no one can.

If I can get a parser to work on this computer I'll run some tests but this WS is obviously 100x better than either RR or KJ.

Parser's give a more detailed explanation of why it's better, and by how much.

The WS damage would be more or less the same. A few more base damage isn't going to add much at all to the WS, and the Occ. Deals 2x Damage doesn't proc on the WS. The sole reason to upgrade the Empyrean over the WoE path is the Aftermath....so I'm kinda missing your point.

Ukon also has an awkward 5 hit, even more so than Bravura.

Ukon is a much better weapon DPS-wise and WS-wise though. Higher damage, lower delay, OADD of ~30%, 15 STR now, and higher fSTR too if I'm not mistaken. This Maschu can put up high numbers and may well be the second best GAxe in the game, but it's no Ukon.

Edit: 5-hits with Ukon really aren't that hard.

Ukon/Rose/____/White
Turban/AF3/Brutal/Attila
AF3+2/Dusk+1/Hoard/Rajas
Tactical/Goading/AF3+2/AF3+2
26%, 13 TP/hit base, 36 STP from gear/15 from sub/6 from food = 57 STP
32 STP during WS required, minimum of 31 (Rose/Rajas/Brutal/Carb/SAM) possible.

If you add Regain ticks from Voracious Violet, you can safely swap Tactical Mantle to Belenos and Whit Tathlum to Bomb Core to pick up 40 Attack. Alternatively, you could swap Carb to a serious meat.

Sure, Ukon is easier to 5-hit. Corollary is that you get TP slower and WS less frequently. The OADD will more than compensate for the lost Attack, Double Attack, or whatever other stat you think of between the two builds. The benefit of Maschu +2 is that it is massively easier to obtain.

This thread is about the WS.

DoT, Delay, and the frequency of Occ. Deals 2x Damage on the Empyrean is irrelevant to the topic, that's my point. Also 4 more damage isn't going to add some mindblowing amount of damage to the WS, neither is +15 more STR.

The WS on the Empyrean is exactly the same as the one on the +1 and +2. The WS doesn't magically do a significantly greater amount of damage because it's the Empyrean. Ukon is obviously better than Maschu +2 but that has nothing to do with anything.

Not hard, but it is time consuming. Less so now because SE adjusted the drop rates but it's probably nothing you can do in a week or two, unless that's all you do everyday.

Hex (or anyone) can you ball park how long it would take to get this assume

WoE Sunday nights for 1.5 hour with another 3-4 hours a week devoted to completeing the trials.

Two months?

It's hard to put an exact time on it because a lot of variables come into play.

First off, who you are doing WoE with, and will they pass the coins for you? How popular is WoE on your server, and are people going to be crashing your runs to lot coins? What jobs do you have, to place 1-5 if you clear the zone. Do you plan on clearing the zone, or low man farming?

The answers to these questions will weigh heavily on your completion time.

Every warrior needs to make Maschu +2.

Had mine for 2~ weeks now and my god warrior went from fun to orgasmic. Had Damage spikes on Ukko's of 7760 like of 5-6k too Outside of abyssea was were I first got to test it and doing 3-4k is amazing.

The axe itself is even nice, Doing 500-1k more damage on Kings / Raging Rush.


Got 28 coins of glory in one night of WoE in about 12 runs. Jp pickup groups go all night long just get in zone with flag up. Honestly though most runs were 1-2 coins I got lucky on a chest with 2 glory pouches AND a 3rd pouch won in the pool. That run alone was 24 coins. Then 5 hours later to get the single coin to be 30/30.

I know thread is old but this weapon really changes war into a stronger DD. not that it wasn't already.
