I dont see Entropy beating quietus (Guillotine never did despite some claims) even with an INT build and belt/gorget

My rather weak sets, same 133 damage weapon:

Quietus
138 STR, 70 MND.
133+14+8+46+23 = 224 base damage, 3.0 fTP (3.3-4.5 if you really wanna consider attack bonus)

Entropy with Soil/Soil
94 INT (seriously, only +9 INT. I gotta find some new junk...) 5/5
133+14+8+79 = 234 base damage, 3.8-4.55 fTP

So even with a penalty to fSTR from not being in a full STR set, Entropy will still match in base damage with a superior fTP.

If I had Twilight pieces, they would benefit Entropy more, 4+4<10.

I have twilight but I'm not going to bother unlocking entropy to even test it, not worth losing aftermath regardless

I have Shoha 5/5, what else is really needed

You can shut the f*ck up now. Sorry your Redemption is as trash as it ever was. Enjoy your Heavy Metal Plate hunting.

where is 15%-26% WS damage coming anywhere near beating 12% total damage?

and I have a penitence +2 like you as well, its not going to beat redemption with entropy doing more damage

Less damage per swing and slower swinging with higher WS damage will not beat higher damage per swing and faster swinging

ill maths it out when I get hmoe, but if I can outparse Caladbolgs(not all mind you its about even with DRKs I beat and DRKs I dont) I can **** sure outparse a DRK spamming entropy

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.

Sorry, but competent DRKs have been between 40:60 and 30:70 since level 75. 60:40? Sure: in Abyssea with completely the wrong atma for DRK, using a low-fTP attack-bonused WS on capped-Ratio targets, and taking no advantage of that attack bonus that makes it anything but a sidegrade of even Guillotine. Your eyeballing of Quietus being anything but marginally better than Guillotine is irrelevant.

Around here that's called 'Doing it wrong'. If you want to play with RR/GH e-peen crits, throw on Roaring Laughter and /MNK too and actually be useful at the same time, else get with the times and put on Apoc, A&O or Lion, and VV or RR depending on what WS you've got (VV for Quietus, RR for Entropy and Guillotine) and learn that DRK's WS spam is still unmatched, despite not doing 4k+, even in Abyssea.

Next you're gonna tell me 5-hit is overrated.

Just dinged 99 today, went to unlock Resolution and probably gonna do Entropy too since i'm really thinking of building myself an Apocalypse with BST ;)

Just wondering if I should do Caladbold GS or Masamune GKT since my friends are doing an Almace and I get the leftover empyrean xd Is Resolution 5/5 so good that it beats Torcleaver most of the time? If it's the case I might just pick up a Gram or try for OAT GS and get myself a lolmasa for fudo instead xd

I can't get a parser to work on this computer, but generally speaking I've never seen Torcleaver do anywhere near Resolution.

Tachi: Shoha generally seems better than Fudo as well. Which ever you choose, just use the Empyrean WS for Aftermath then for it's duration spam Resolution/Shoha until the Aftermath needs to be reapplied. Best of both worlds.

Got Resolution to 4/5 yesterday night, I must say I'm impressed! Was using my updated Spinning Slash/Ground Strike equip until I got the skill to use it, was pumping out 2k+ WS at 100% P with 1-2-3 upgrades in it with a Jingang GS I got on AH (looks better then Krieg and was 500k cheaper then Gram, which was not on AH at that time...) Think it settled my choice on my leftover Empy XD Thinking about doing Apocalypse and Ragnarok for my DRK, being real casual in dynamis solo would take me between 3-6 months for each ^^ Also unlocked Entropy 1/5 to see how it does :P

I've gotten three.

Kinda sucks because it has to be replaced with ele Gorget for Reso or Ent, so it's not actually very useful in comparison to or a valid replacement for Hagneia stone just as an example.

Major Ding for my DRK: Fulgurante OaT greatsword mine ^^ Now to test that bad boy out since I just finished trading all the **** items in!

Wish it was red like Naglering but I'll settle for blue XD

For whoever going down this path, here's how I've done it :

Up to Krabkatoa,needless to say, quality time solo on DRK!

Krabkatoa: Farmed T1 to T3 on DNC solo, asked BST+TH7 mule friends to duo/trio it without too many problems.

Chasmic Stingers: Solo on THF.

Mikey's Nuggets: Joined exp party on worms(for TE), disbanded party when NM popped, easy solo on BST.

Daybreak souls: Bastion spamming on DRG, just boring...

Incredescent shades: Had 200k+ dominions ops points from exp parties, just long to grab every item one by one...

Silver miirrors and Riftsands: Shouting in jeuno did the trick, costed me about 3 mil when they were selling for 10k a few months back...

To be honest, only the Krabkatoa leg is long, rest was cleared pretty fast ^^

Now to focus on my long-time goal: Apocalypse, here I come! Only 6 months worth of dynamis farming on BST, fun times ahead...

Yup, I'm stuck on Krab and been taking a solid month break for my secret project now. Sitting on 125 mirrors and 150 sand still.

I'll probably end up coming back to level DNC to do it the same way you did (among other things) since I already have full +1 for the job...

Might as well do it like that, and can always team up with ppl doing T2 and try to ask them to pop T3 if they have or buy their pop ;) 2x BST can duo it np with Raphie or Gerard, just need a THF friend for mucho TH ;)

Well nice day for DRK, got Ace's mail on the 5th try today and Ogier's gauntlets on the 4th try ^^ (not counting other runs where I didn't had the key items to push blue lights to 550% with Rubicund cells. Only missing Ogier's surcoat for Tping and I can focus on Armada hauberk farming + Apocalypse funds...Anyone got the 99 version and mind posting his/her impressions on the last upgrade(95 to 99)? I see some Umbral marrow go for 20 mil+ on my server, so that cash(100 mil+) could either solidify the scythe or sponsor a good deal of another relic(Gkt or GS comes to mind) if I would get the urge to do so!

P.S. I fell in love again with DRK with OaT Fulgurante, that thing is so much fun 6 hit /war ^^

Get a rank 3 win, then worry about it.

I got a Mekira body, 1/5 and first kill of a set, then felt bad because I had to spend the rest of the run pulling a kitten out from under the house (but apparently they started another before the WHM was back anyway).

Finished Abyss +2 hands. Not sure if I still really give half a **** about Diabolic Eye, but it takes just a half dozen NMs to get the limit points back to switch again. Also switched out AF head for Khthoinos over using Mekira-oto for Entropy, but that's for lack of Twilight (only got Knife on a solo run where I had the friggin' GS read for blue and it just wouldn't stick).

Souleater Recast instead of LR effect if you do things other than Voidwatch... like ever. 5/5 LR Effect is for the pansy ***** DRKs that only do high tier Voidwatch, never read or do a single proc, and don't know what Stalwart Soul is. If you're in a situation to need LR effect merits, you should be getting buffs such that you don't need it.

1/5 Dark Seal is enough because of a fiasco with Relic +2 head... short version is that while it's a good precast piece the Augment for +50% duration doesn't affect Drain II which is what you'd want Dark Seal on to begin with, so it's pretty much a waste of inventory.

Going past 1/5 Diabolic Eye doesn't really matter til you have Relic +2aug hands, then it's rather ******** but still rarely used (see above: if/when all you do is Voidwatch)

And since you can then only take one of them to 4/5, it really doesn't matter. Nobody should look at you funny if you even just leave them both at 1/5, but the extra duration on DE can be helpful if you ever actually need it (I'm a 2-4 Scythe and Souleater sort in those situations though, so it's somewhere between redundant and counterproductive).

Nevermind, not as awesome as it looks. The total tp drained is capped:

Hard to see it being anything but worthless when the mob runs out of TP to be drained anyway, total cap or not.

9 hours 40 minutes, Ding, 99 BST... yes this is a DRK ding so I can solo Krabkatoas after getting screwed (zero shells) on two pops.

Already been chewing on Apoc a little. Something like 10/70 shells so far, but no bynes. Might use it towards an Ochain too.

Woke up this morning, got a Colorful Abyssite 1/3 and Blue Abyssite 1/1. Poked LS and Fina sama came on SMN to make it easy. Dropped the last shell I needed.

Then I hopped in the usual La Theine worms group and dropped party every 15min to kill Mikey. Racked up the 17 nuggets I needed in the time I got about 17 merits as well.

Then I went and did Bastion for two hours because I'd bought DNC, DRG, and COR legs since working up the 9k credits I needed for Daybreaks and still needed NQ BST legs anyway. Aeolian Edge -> Snarl made it soooo easy to rack up 2k+ credits per battle, but then half the time some split portion or another group would come along, run past everyone, and one-shot the Martello. Now I remember why nobody does Bastion if they can help it.

Then I spent SIX MINUTES at four menus with 16 inputs per cycle for one Iridescent at a time, 50 times over.

All told, Fulgurante done within 3 days of leveling BST.

Congrats! Enjoy fulgurante ;-) Tried augmenting my armada today, best I got in 10 tatters was Stp +3 and double attack +3%. Guess that's a start lol

So in augmenting through tatters do you lose the tatter each successful synergy? Can you re-use the augmented armor piece in another synergy and chose weather to keep the results or not?

Side note to Rae 5/6 on the NIN leg +2 item and 4/6 on the DRK +2 leg item. That ****** dies three times without dropping ****. But I did learn that if you stay ~35 distance from him he won't spawn an add on you.

Figured out that with the Tactical Mantle I picked up with Busa, I can 5-hit OAT.

/SAM
Ace's
Goading
Brutal
Hagneia
Houyi's
Rajas
Rose
Hoard
Tactical

TP in +51, 19.6 returns.
WS in /SAM, Brutal, Rajas, Rose, Hoard, Tactical, Houyi's, +38 for 17.9 + 1.3's, 23.1 four hits, 24.4 five hits, miss-tolerant,WSing in Tactical though, hence 'prototype'. All it needs is an STP body, legs, or head (Preferably Phorcy's legs/head or Murzim Corazza) which cleans up the TP phase and drops the WS need into the 20s. I could probably find a substitution in my current gear or some other piece to get Tactical out of my WS set at least.

Also, that's why Murzim body is better than Enif body. +6 STP and 4% Haste. F*cking e-peen whores and their quad attack fetish... might as weill be 4% DA which means 'who gives a sh*t?'

Edit: Forgot I was using my DRK/MNK spellcast instead, which is that full STP load instead of WSing in Bomb Core and such.

Could use Tyrant ring instead of Hoard :P I agree that Phorcy legs and helm for the TP phase are great options, and Murzim body or Adaberk/Armada body with STP augments could free up some STP too.

So looking at it would give on TP phase:

Rose strap +4
Hagneia stone +3
Phorcy salade +5
Houyi's gorget +3
Brutal earring +1
Murzim body +6, Adaberk/Armada +4 to 6 preferably, remember reading +4 is the minimum for most builds
Tyrant ring +4
Rajas ring +5
Goading belt +5
Phorcy legs +5
Aces feet +5

Which would give +55 STP with /sam without the body, can work build around depending on what you got.

WS wise

Rose strap +4
Brutal earring +1
Rajas ring +5

Which would give +55 STP with /sam without the body, can work build around too!

From Busa's thread:

Raelix wrote:
Looks like we get to start working on Neo Nyzul groups and go whaling.

Porthos Byrnie
Hagneia Stone
Bale Earring
Ogier's Gauntlets
Rajas Ring
Tyrant's Ring
Rose Strap
Phos Belt
Dauntless Mantle
Fulgurante (OAT)
Brutal Earring
Houyi's Gorget
Phorcys Salade
Phorcys Dirs
Phorcys Schuhs

25 haste, +41 STP, /SAM makes 5-hit (WS in +5 STP), +53 Acc after DEX.

Good luck on the belt though. You can use Goading, Bomblet, and some 3% haste feet though. Ghadhab Nails would be first choice and are easy enough to get compared to the rest.

So:

Porthos Byrnie
Fire Bomblet
Bale Earring
Ogier's Gauntlets
Rajas Ring
Tyrant's Ring
Rose Strap
Goading Belt
Dauntless Mantle
Fulgurante (OAT)
Brutal Earring
Houyi's Gorget
Phorcys Salade
Phorcys Dirs
Ghadhab Nails

26% Haste, +58 STP /SAM, solid 5-hit, still rocking +47 accuracy.


Pretty much optimal sets before Limbus rework, so I'd start from these. ***** adaberk.


And before you tear into why I used the word 'optimal', it's because it matches the +Acc on a good WS set too iirc.

Outparsed a 90 Ukon and a 95 Apoc on Kirin tonight taking my rightful place on the top of the mountain with my dirty **** Fulgurante. Buffs were double March, Min, Haste, Hasso, LR (whole fight, ***** died before it wore) and RCB+1. I shoulda used SoulEater too just to really **** in their faces. They were a cool group though, we had good times.

700K down the drain and no W. Legs ;_; but ding worthy none the less as I'm drunk as balls.

Does Qilin resist Souleater or something? I can't figure out why my Reso average dropped 40% compared to an Aello run yesterday with roughly the same buffs.

We should look at doing Neo-Limbus then too, Murzim body is a great stepping stone and part of /WAR 5-hit.
