Anyone else LOVE Herculean Slash?Follow

Although its not as good as spinning slash, I feel that with a low dmg multi-hit greatsword it becomes well worth it.

With a good VIT set and MAB I can see a good competitor to spinning slash. The modifier is heavily impacted on Vit. I think it's funny that I had to dust off the old VIT gear to see what it does.

With a basic vit build (Koenig schaller, Vit rings, Af body+1, relic gloves etc) and some basic MAB items, I can do a 606 weapons skill everytime(Not counting resists) w/ a dmg 41 greatsword(Salamand Sword magian trial for drk).

Oh also, /rdm adds about 150dmg in MAB to the WS as well. 606 x 1.24 = 751.44 which is what I usually get on the weapon skill with MAB II.

Only really been using it to finish trials. No time yet to do it with abyssea lvl or a T+ mob.

I am wondering if anyone who has full koenig and novio would be able to test it out to see if they can get a sweet build going with Mercurial Sword.

I feel this weapons skill is like primal rend is to bst. Which is nice with Richardet's axe.

It says MAB for the dmg mod, Where do you read Vit? and what is the boost if so? How much does the vit mod give?

According to Studio Gobli and its not too hard to figure out yourself if you try it out. I had to search around to find this, but I figured it out when I started macroing different things to find out they didn't work(like str). It also changed from when it first came out, and I think it changed for the better.

Edit: looks like every 1 vit = 2 more points of dmg. Going to keep on testing it out.

I took off 9vit and it decreased by 20.

and took off 10vit and it also decreased by 20.

That sounds like it might be worth playing around with then.

After 9 or 10 beers I'm pretty much guaranteed to go for a Herculean Slash.
