Short of Ukko's, is this the ultimate? I mean, it makes Vermeil Bhuj look like a letter opener. My LS just beat Alfard(lol, Alfard) with some extreme difficulty(just winged it, no real prep and wowNerve Gas) and I, though a Mnk/Sam/Blu main, was willing to blow ALL my points if it dropped... sadly it did not but the stupid shield did.

My question is, should I request we focus on this and turn my War from dud to stud(ish)? Through helping LSmates I've gotten AF+1 Head/Legs/Feet and Askar Body through Nyzul so gearing War is no issue. My only concern before was underskilled G.Axe(240...) and using my junk WSD+10%(currently on Keen Edge trial vs Lizards lol)

It looks outstanding... just curious if it's worth all I am thinking it is.

It seems like a terrific Gaxe to me, I don't think I have seen any testing on how much it increase the damage though. Guess the end result will be how that factors in.

As far as Gaxe skill I would recommend getting the Kinship Axe and trying to get in some skill up parties to get that skill up where it needs to be. I am still far from cap and I have done a metric ton of Abys parties to skill it up. You will see a very large damage and Acc increase when you start getting over 300 skill.

It's great for the moment. I'd hesitate to go "all in" getting one though (depending on your point system), given the rate at which some items have fallen in rank. Figure, it wasn't all that long ago that a Vermeil was a rather nice weapon. Now it's kinda meh, at best. Chances are that other, more macro-able items (perhaps) will maintain their position better through 99, whereas Widowmaker will probably just wind up paling in comparison to Magians or some forthcoming NM drop.
