I see you're doing as well as ever.
It never gets easier. Someone can still just ignore four paragraphs of 2nd grade math and continue thinking Exclusive WS = Better WS. Maybe I just still have nothing better to do.
Okay follow me on this. At least 60% of your damage is coming from WS now. 60:40 split. You should have been doing this at level 75 really, and it's only gotten more WS heavy since fTPs and WSCs have gone up but melee damage stays relatively the same.
With Redemption, ODD is a 30% proc rate on 40% of your damage. That's 12% more total damage.
With Redemption, Entropy over Quietus is 26% more damage, even before a decent INT set, on 60% of your damage on all but six mobs in the whole game. That's 15.6% more total damage.
Even if you knock out a 300TP Quietus to start it's only 20% more total damage and it starts winning just because of ODD procs.
So if Entropy is at least equal in performance to Quietus and the ODD procs with the very weapon that is dedicated to Quietus
, what the **** other Scythe is going to beat Entropy with anything else?
There is simply no particular reason to use Quietus over Entropy even if you have Redemption!
You mentioned just about the only one, self-SC, but Entropy opens and closes Darkness too, and is Gravitation to Quietus's Distortion: You're actually better off going Quietus->Entropy!
You get scaling with TP without needing to be gimpy low on attack, you get a smoother 5-hit, and even bottomless MP is worth mentioning if a bit pointless.
You came in here with this doubt that Entropy beats Quietus. If you aren't going to accept a simple analysis then GTFO and do it yourself already, and don't **** it up by having Gorget+Belt affect only the first hit. Edited, Jan 5th 2012 3:17pm by Raelix
