Heart Snatcher Broken !!!! (I think I guess well I've done enough Viper Bites to have broken it anyway)
Ding Heart Snatcher Broken whether it is or NOT!!!!
Not to crush your victory (trust me I went thru this as well, so disappointing), but...aside from being free, HS is a terrible dagger to melee with.
Most other higher level daggers will easily match or outparse HS and any well geared THF will tell you to sell it and use the gil to buy a better one.
I sold mine, but you might as well play with yours for a while before tossing it - at the very least its fun to see some sexy 5xCrit Eviserations. I just wish it was better...
For a bard who doesn't really melee, nothing really wrong with just having Heart Snatcher.
For Thief who is expected to produce high numbers, then yes, it is an loldagger. But no sense in a bard laying down 2mil for a blau dolch when a heartsnatcher will kill things too.
I have both Heart Snatcher and Blau, and both 75 thief and bard, and I never use my heart snatcher. I had Heart Snatcher first and was unlocking it for my bard, just because it has a higher latent base damage then other daggers bard can use, but once I got my blau on Thief, I never touched it again.
Unless you're putting together some leet bard melee gear setup, no real reason to invest in a good quality dagger. To the extreme its like saying, I want a mandau for my bard instead of a gjallarhorn. Save your gil for something bardly :D
