I'm just posting to ask a question really, its quite simple for tping on samurai Askar Head or W turban?

Ive noticed a lot of discussions or jokes about people using denali bonnet over W turban and ive never seen anything bad about using Askar head.

My main question is for samurai, but war,drk and drg im also interested in I just dont have them levelled.

If you really care about that 1% Haste, the Turban is your best friend. For the people looking to get a use out of the Evasion or DEX bonus from the Nyzul pieces, go with them.

Some will tell you 1% Haste is game breaking and bring out math and books and numbers just to prove themselves right. Ignore them. It's your game, wear what you want.

turban when over a certain % of haste. askar when under it.

couldnt tell you what haste % tho. I mainly just keep the askar on because its a change from the turban.. but thats just me!

IMO Drg gets the best use out of askar hat but not during TP but in jumps/ws.

The reason w-turban will almost always be better than askar is +1% haste does a lot more for your DoT than the small dex/str increase.

I'm sure someone will come and show you math where unless your acc is badly uncapped w-turban wins.

It's a nice solo piece or ws piece but not great for TP.

Ignore with Ailoki said.

If you want to DD, wear a turban.

Askar helm is mostly pre-heca-or-whatever WS head.

If you want to eva tank, you put your OHat on.

If you have an Ace's Helm, your gear is likely good enough that it's a situational piece for you on high eva mobs (such as Odin and Byakko). Walmart Turban is still better in every situation where your ACC is capped.

This unless you're severely underbuffed and hurting for accuracy (rare thanks to Marinara Pizza). Turban v Ace's is a bit more situational since it's 4 more accuracy than Askar, but even then Turban almost always wins. Exception: you cap gear haste without the additional 1% (certain Cata aftermath builds, SAM/DRG with top gear, RC WAR).

I would agree with this statement about a month ago, it was then I saw a sam wearing Aces in a merit pty with Hachiman Domaru, feet hands and AF+1 legs fulltime. . . I kind of face palmed.

If you have Ace's helm would do you still use Walahra turban? lol But as for the OP, I use Askar helm for the STR/DEX and because it's a change from the turban I had been wearing forever.

I would have used turban over ace´s in some situations if I had one.

I use walmart turban /dnc soloing, merits, limbus, city dynamis zones aaaaaaand that's about it. I mostly use ace's helm with curry buns since I'm not a huge fan of pizza and it not stacking. :/ That's just me though, pizza is an amazing food.

I tp in full heca 'cause it's my game and I wear what I want.
For the people that want to maximize their characters, the majority of the time 5% Haste head > any of the 4% ones. Basically what nightfyre said.

Seriously though, they release "curry buns", but we can't get pizza by the slice?

I have Ace's Helm and only real time I use it is for wearing in town or sometimes with Polearm. But given the choice to wear either Askar or Walahra? I'd pick Walahra.

You can wear what you want like someone said but 99% of the time walmart turban will be the better choice.

But hell you could tp in O-hat like it's 2003 if you wanted. Still a bad choice but you could

my war & sam > capped acc > turban
my drg > 94% acc > askar

but overstacking shiny gears makes me /facepalm
meripo with a relic GKT sam also using Hauby+1/Aces Helm

was thinking maybe askar body to increase DA rate + turban for more haste, since that GKT has about the same acc as aces and hauby+1 combined?

People wearing the Ace's or the Askar are only in it for one of three things...

1. They don't have Walahra Turban... 0.5% of them.

2. The Pageantry! 51.25% of them.

3. They're ignorant. 48.25% of them.

Edit: I forgot the 4th thing...

THEY MUST BE A CHICK! lol

my favorite are the people who use ace's/askar and have dusk gloves+1.

It's like, Hay guys, let me pay 15-20m for 1% haste and then toss away 1% haste!

I only use Askar for soloing when the def and vit might have a slight chance at having any sort of impact.

And when your soloing, who honestly gives a *** what you wear.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, it's not that I give a ***, but it still makes for a good lol if you're wearing something lolable during solo
