I quit ffxi before server merge, b/c family issue...
what is the best GTK for now?
is Amano still top 3 GTK?
how much time sink to upgrade from Amano(75) to Amano(95)?
what other gears do i need to keep up with Amano at lvl90-95?

Please help me out, thanks

I'm no SAM, but I'm pretty sure the boosts to relics put amano over masamune. Also, the trials for relics are pretty damn easy, thanks to neo-dynamis.

Just patience really. Trials.

If you get time, Id also pursue a Masamune for the situations it dominates Amano you can reasonably get it to 85 quickly or 90 and be done with it. And youd be set with the top 2 best GKs in the game and be set for any situation for GK sam.

If game times is an issue, than just stick to your Amano, although it only takes 1-2 nights(depending on your time/ppl) for stage 1 masamune and roughly a little more on 2nd stage if you strapped for time/ppl #s. Just a thought~

Nah, on average masamune will still ws harder than amano, and ODD is still better.

Amano shines in acc situations and a better 5hit situation(assuming you would even benefit from that in a situation). Its also not locked into ws for ODD(x2.5)so if we get any good 99 ws that come out, wont have to use kaiten while masa will still have to use fudo.

That OD2.5 is equal to 30% ODD, as you say without being locked, and also allows room for easier Xhit builds with amano, giving a slightly higher DPS than masa.

The part you got right though is that fudo will usually hit harder on NMs assuming equal level weapons.

18% 2.5x = 30% 2.0? Not counting potentially higher AM on Masamune.

18%? only ever seen 20% tested which comes out at equal DoT increase as 30% ODD, but oh well.

Will usually be WSing at 100% aside from certain situations. If WSing higher than 100%, fudo's scaling damage will beat kaiten even more.

My gear is irrelevant to how correct you are.
