Hello, I'm sorry if this topic has been raised before but I would really like to know if anyone knows what the proc rate is with a full 5/5 set? Ive been trying to search via Google, and all I found was one person on FFXI-AH who parsed a 4/5 Set at roughly 4% Proc rate. His Sample size was rather small (1200~ swings, 370~ Double Attacks) but it was enough to get the Idea it looks like. But is SE hiding the full benefit of an Armor set until the full 5/5 is worn? I'm really hoping I dont complete this set to be sorely disappointed :( Do any WARs out there have the full +2 set? Or does anyone have any answers to my question? Thank you for your time.

is Happy on Friday!

All the sets seem to have roughly the same proc rate;

1 piece: 0%

2 pieces: ~2%

3 pieces: ~4%

4 pieces: ~6%

5 pieces: ~10%

like the WotG gear sets, where 5/5 gives a -extra- bonus on top of the additional piece.

So the question I have is, is it even woth it to upgrade warrior +2 head.

AF3 Legs 7% + Feet 5% + Belt 4-6% (lets say 5%) = 17% I.e. need 8% to cap haste.

So you can equip that tiara (forget name) for 8% so then you could 4/5, but is the 5/5 bonus going to win?

Obviously ^&%$ is situational, but lets assume not a high haste scenario i.e. no brd. I am thinking 5/5 would win?

Thoughts?

I think the 8% haste is gonna beat the extra DA.

The reason i think it will is this.

If im not mistaken there used to be alot of discussion on the Haste VS DA topic around here including alot of math from Pahn supporting the above statement by KwileyStyle.

Id look it up... but im lazy.

Af3+2 head is WAR's best piece for Raging Rush and Ukko's Fury. TP should be Ravager's body/legs/feet +2, Goading, Zelus, and Perle hands, swapping to af3+2 hands when Restraint is up. You don't need to wear them for WS. Other pieces should be whatever sTP you need to 5hit with your weapon of choice and WAR af3 accessories in left over slots. WS in STR, oh god STR, thank you Atma and cruor buffs.

His understanding of what diminishing returns means is wrong.

Going from 0% DA to 10% DA is 110 - 100 = 10 increase.

Going from 10% DA to 20% DA is 120 - 110 = 10 increase.

Going from 20% DA to 30% DA is 120 - 110 = 10 increase.

The amount of damage gained by each addition to DA is constant. If you graph the damage increase, the points form a straight line. This is linear returns, not diminishing.

This is not to say that the argument of haste being better than DA is wrong. Haste is in fact increasing returns.

Increasing returns > linear returns

Haste > DA

But, there is no amount of DA at which you are getting less benefit by stacking more onto it (unless you've actually hit 100%).

Ok so the added stats of 5/5 +2 (including the Set bonus) is likely to lose to 4/5+2 with Haste gear.

With 0% haste and a high delay weapon, there is a chance that 5/5 +2 with the set bonus would win. Since the benefits of haste do increase the more you stack on, the scale is going to shift significantly in haste's direction based on other haste gear/songs/spells you have on you. Most likely, you're well past the point where haste wins.

god, do NOT start the @#%^ing double attack is not diminishing returns bullsh*t again. That's been done to death and back to many times already.

However, when one is considering haste vs DA one also has to consider the net over all gain of double damage procs on DA vs haste, and whether or not you're actually getting enough haste in a given situation for the haste to win out. Not everyone is going to be doing every event with Haste and double march. I sure as **** don't. Between preoccupied/lazy whms, and utter lack of bards, I know a lot of people don't play under high haste scenarios 90% of the time, so it's not really realistic to assume haste is ALWAYS better, given that at -just- gear haste cap, Turban vs Ravager's Mask +1 is really close, and from my experience, leans towards ravager's.

The set bonus does not add double attack it augments DA. The augment is x2 damage chance on a DA round. 5/5 gives you a 5% chance of double damage.

I was trying to explain the trend rather than the specific math. As both numbers go higher, the benefit leans toward haste. You're right to point out that it was a gross generalization and individual situations vary.

I knew it wasn't the first thread on the subject. I'm well aware that there were quite a few arguments about it long before I ever got involved. It was never resolved, people just finally got sick of arguing it. I had no intention of changing anybody's mind here. All I cared about was that somebody new didn't see wrong information posted without anybody saying, "Psst. That's a load of crap."

No bonus to Activation for full set? Then again it seems DD jobs set bonuses either just proc too low, or Rdm lucked out and got a special bonus for full set.

Not that the full set is good for meleeing in in the first place.

No offense but a lot of people have no clue what diminishing returns even means.

If you have 10 DA as a base:

1) If you add +10 DA do you gain 10% in the chance to DA (does it go from 10% to 20%)?

2) Do you gain less then 10% chance to DA (Does it go from 10% to any number less then 20)?

If its 1, its linear, if its 2 its diminishing.

You MUST MUST MUST measure the return with constant units. IE for every 10% DA you add, do you see a 10% increase in the rate of DA?

You dont measure it as

10->20% (increase of x2)

20->30 (increase of 1.5)

Go look it up in wiki or take an economics class, but that is such terrible information.

I'm honestly wondering from where you pulling those numbers...

You definitely don't realize the impact your misinformation, voluntary or not doesnot matter, has on the following posts...

For the OP, I recently made also a parsing test for 4/5 ravager+2 set bonus, posted on same FFXIAH.com thread.

Numbers comes more closer to :

1 piece : 0%

2 pieces: 1%

3 pieces: 2%

4 pieces: 3%

5 pieces: 5% ?

...from 33% double attack total.

... pretty much like all other set+2 bonuses based on a random event.

Most important thing to insist on is :

Those % values are based ON A RANDOM EVENT (here double attacks), so if you asking for the real total %, have to calculate with total #hits+crits+misses (and not only the # of random events, here DAs only).

Obviously the final results will come out lot lower than 5%...

Additional note: that makes WAR set+2 much less appealing than a mixed gears set, same for other AF3+2 setss based on a random event. On other hand, AF3 sets like PLD's or BLU's arenot based on a random event but on a "controlled" event (1st is how much mob hits you -usually 95% of the time- and 2nd is how much you hit your spell macros), easy to guess overall % will be much higher than WAR's.

See a pattern, as each unit of DA is added the percentage gain gets smaller and smaller.

That's diminishing returns when looking at percentage incremental gains, however that's simply a flawed and skewed manner of observing double attack, and all other probability based aspects of the game.

If you have 100 attacks of 1 damage each, and you add 10% double attack, you have a 10% chance of attack twice for another 1 damage each. This will end up being approximately 10 extra attacks, or essentially 10 extra damage. For every % of double attack you add, you're gaining that exact same % of your base number of attacks and essentially that exact same % of your base damage. Since you cannot double attack on a doubled attack, there is most certainly a hard cap of 100% at the most. This means, at the most, you can add 100% of your base damage.

Despite the argument of increasing, linear, or diminishing returns, the pieces in question result to this:

In what situations will haste +8% outdo STR+8, VIT+8, Acc/attack +14, Crit Hit rate +3%, Double Attack +4%, and Double Attack Damage +4%? (assuming 4/5 +2 as a constant)

That's a whole lot more to consider than just double attack +4% vs Haste +8%.
