Why haste matters

Somewhat back to the topic: Ironguy, I just finished my vnm stage for masa, but my moonshade is used by other (mage) jobs. How bad is that going to suck? Going to start doing the math on sets, but was curious if you had anything for that sort of situation.

So what? I'm not capped hasted. Boo-frickin-hoo. 22% Haste Pre-Kaiten, 24% Post. I don't even have a Z-Tiara. I have balance of Haste, Double Attack, Zanshin & set pieces for potential procs.

Don't think anyone said it was unimportant. My other points were simply overlooked and RAWR HASTE MATTERS proceeded.

Edit: My original post was very much on topic, ofcourse that was before the heavyweight starting swinging his troll hammer around - a troll post that was subsequently deleted.

So I'll state again:

Pandemonium.Ironguy said:
his justification for the belt is the conserve tp, which while it won't shave a hit off your -hit build, it does count as excess tp for the upcoming weapon skill (and in the case of fudo, picture it as about 60% of the power of the tp bonus moonshade earring, aka 6-7 more str-worth in power, plus the .1 fTP)

to me, the activation rate on conserve tp is too far in-between for it to outperform beir, but, they sure are a lot closer when you also account that the sune-ate have conserve tp as well, resulting in a 13% chance of it activating i suppose

keep in mind as well, by nature i take things in from the amano perspective, which (for now? if they adjust relics further), that additional tp does absolutely nothing for me, though, 3.0 fTP is low enough to where a .1 addition would outperform 9 str and the 6(.75) atk that comes along with it, or at least i'm pretty damn sure of it

Yeah, Ele Belt/Torque combo for Kaiten, and in fact most non-lawl Relic WSs, is the best way to go. Overall .2fTP adjustment beats pretty much any combination of gear in those slots.

Note: This was the original post.

Nope. Just seems some people didn't get the memo.

I gave you a link to math. Do you have math to back up your claim that your balance is superior? Or would you prefer to bold words that you think matter, and ignore the math?

By all means, if you have proof that your way is superior, I'm all ears; I fully realize I have a lot to learn, and will cheerfully change what I'm doing if it will be more effective.

for masamune (fudo) users, the difference is a ~11 str earring (moonshade with atk and tp bonus) against a 4 str earring (vulcan's pearl); even then, to be honest, i may be giving moonshade earring a little bit more credit than what it's due

once you account the fact that the bulk of the majority of masamune owners don't even own moonshade earring yet (or otherwise don't have augments on it for samurai), you're not essentially "behind" by any means

pair that with the fact that not everyone's elvaan either (in the case of a taru, they're already permanently a full 10 str behind), and well, let's just say it certainly won't, nor should it stop you from playing samurai in situations where the job excels these days

Did you notice at any point that I said my way was superior? If I did, feel free to quote.

That was my point: Capping Haste is NOT the be-all-and-end-all for SAM. I've never said capping haste was a waste of time, nor have I even said that capping Haste wasn't worth it.

You sent me a link to math about Double Attack versus Haste(which by the way I've already seen but thanks all the same!). My request was "for this particular situation". The situation being 90 SAM. Taking into account: Haste, Double Attack, Zanshin, Hassoshin and Set Procs. While also showing that capped haste versus what I choose to do is "laughable".

Wish I could say I'd be flattered, sadly I'm not.

Funny really, most sigs like that I see, I think to myself. Ah yes, yet another troll taking a quote out of context.

I would be right about this one.

I'd have more quotes than posts if that was the case.

If they give us some decent upgrades on Usu Feet, which I pray they don't give us the Synergy BS for, I won't need it anyway!

Bring on:

Usukane Sune-Ate
[Feet] All Races
DEF: 32 Accuracy +10 Attack +10
Store TP +10
Haste +4% Enmity +8
Set: Enhances Haste effect
Lv. 95 MNK / SAM / NIN / PUP

Becoming...

Usukane Sune-Ate
[Feet] All Races
DEF: 35 Accuracy +12 Attack +12
Store TP +12
Haste +5% Enmity +10
Set: Enhances Haste effect
Lv. 99 MNK / SAM / NIN / PUP

Wet dream? Perhaps...
