Dam freaking horrible delay. Had a discussion with a budy I was of the opinion that its not worth it to 5 hit outside of Abyssea because you would give up too much and inside (where the stat bonuses are less important due to atmas cruor buffs) you would have regain anyway.
Ok so as alot of you know to 5 hit the dam thing you have to Stp 53. (assumes 2 hit ws, no tp from getting hit or atma) Which means your going to have to gimp both tp gear and ws. Frankly, I am still on the fence if this is even worth it because even gimping your dmg to not pull hate the odds of a well geared war not getting hit once are low.
6 Hit is cake 27 stp
Stp normal decent tp gear.
5 g belt
34 which is overkill and lets you do a few swaps for WS (and you can swap belt for higher haste belt and still WS in a better belt)
Interestingly if you add Rose and TP in tactical you get a 5 hit with 2 ticks of VV or 1 tick and getting hit once. Which is what I think I am going to stick too.
Now lets go for 53... need 19 more
4 Rose - lose 2% DA (or 3% Crit goign to use DA as an example)
1 Earing - lose 3 att and 1 DA
6 Tactical - lose 35 attack (-15 +20) and 3 DA
2 white - Lose 3 Str 8 Attack
4 Ring - lose 11 str (-4 +7) and 2 Acc
2 Neck - lose 3 str 2 DA
(or change some of the above for 6 Food but you would lose 90 attack (assumes you would have used curry))
Now those stats in abyssea are no big deal, but outside?
5 hit vrs 8% DA 16 Str 54 Attack 2 Acc
What do you guys think 5 hit worth it?
