Sidewinder ws gear questionFollow

I was in sky last night doing dio. Ended up talking to some of the other RNGs about gear, and the question came up.

Qiqirn collar: RACC +4 RATK +8
vs
Chiv chain: STR +3 ACC +5 Store TP +1

I haven't been taking Q collar out for WS cause of the RACC and RATK. I thought I read that RATK has some impact on WS, but the other RNG never heard that. Then I brought up W hands, if they'd macro them out for anything other than Skotes, and a different RNG said he using Enko hands for WS, not sure of the stats, but STR+5 was his reasoning.

So... Do people ws in the gloves for the RACC, or does RATK have some bearing on WS dmg? And should I be WSing in Chiv chain?

Here are the tests done for weapon skill and yes ranged attack does affect WS numbers otherwise you'd always get same WS if you had 0 ratt or 999 ratt. Our second weapon skill ignores a certain % of the mobs defense based on tp. That will show you how it affects your dmg if you fire it off at 100, 200 and 300 tp.

here's the site for the gear and their impact on ws:

Str vs. Attack vs. Agi on WS

One of my pet peeves is RNG who wear chiv chain for other purposes than STP.

Please use one of the other options.

It was just gonna be a WS piece, but the thread says Q collar out does Chiv chain on Sidewinder, so I'm not even gonna bother using chiv.

Keep in mind that thread is based around damage but doesn't account for Racc.

The correct answer is Light Gorget.

Ah the correct answer WOULD be light gorget, if Light gorget was one of he choices. Instead it's Q.collar vs c.chain

I'm always shocked when people devalue RATT over STR. RATT is still very important. That Chaos Roll or Minuet isn't giving you STR. It's giving you RATT. Everybody notices the difference those buffs make so why would it be any different with equipment?

Yes there will be variable degrees of which is more important depending on the mob you are fighting, but following a general "2 RATT is worth 1 STR" rule pretty much follows for most mobs you fight on a regular basis.

And if you are a marksmanship RNG, don't forget AGI. Adding a stat that improves both RACC and WS power is nothing to sniff at.

So Light gorget > Q collar > Chiv chain. But I still wear a PCC and try to get STR and RATT in other slots until I get my Light gorget.

Doesn't breeze gorget also work with Sidewinder? Or is Light better for some reason I don't know about?

Light Gorget works with every ranged WS (except Trueflight and relic WS).

Breeze Gorget only works with Slugwinder and Trueflight.

If I wasn't also a COR i'd probably just get Breeze since getting Light requires another Yovra organ. But as COR, Detonator is a useful WS and Breeze doesn't affect that WS and Light does.
