Well, I got it because I'm a sucker for Rare/Exclusive items.

My Ninja is already 75, but I plan to use this for Chains or Promathia missions and stuff of that sort. It's not that bad of a katana. Sure you can get higher damage, but when you're level 75, you don't normally have 40 cap gear sitting around. (I tossed my AF katanas as soon as I got them.)

I will probably use Yoto +1 and this for 50 cap stuff. It's very handy.

Very useful dagger

I keep seeing people say that this katana is pointless past the 40's, but you're forgetting one important fact. It's dropped in Phomiuna Aqueducts, a lvl 40 capped area. As with most of the other weapons dropped in this area, it's lvl 40 and below so it is very useful for anyone who ever brings a ninja into Phomiuna. It's better than most other katanas that a nin will use at lvl 40, and it saves you the time and space that you would have spent buying and selling a lower lvl katana. Regardless, I like this katana, and I look forward to getting my nin to 38 to use it.^^

Edit: I called it a dagger in subject, it's a katana ><

Double Attack +1% means you have a 1% chance of getting a double attack.. even if you don't have the trait for it. I used tripple dagger on my rdm/blm while skilling up my dagger and got a tripple attack a few times (though it was lower then 1% of the time).

dont let the 1% fool you, it'll happen more often that u think. I used to think that 1% stood for the same number it did mathematically, 1 out of 100 swings, making it virtually pointless, but after getting only 2 merits (+2%) into triple attack on my thf, i practially never stop triple attacking and with haste i can get full TP in 30-45 seconds. I'm getting this for sub weapon on my ninja and i highly suggest the same to anyone interested.

Actually, he said the triple dagger did, not the double attack on this one... Not that I doubt it, just that well, some confirmation would be nice:P

#Agerbon, Posted: Jan 16 2005 at 8:12 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Indeed bis you are pretty stupid, judging, yet saying How people can play. Defending yer crapy useless statement is weakness. So please spare me because i will never even check to see what you said in your defense.The +1 to double attack inhances your dmg while under going nin/war, kinda like a lalent effect, but it does work.On a diff subject. Like the comment on how drks should use useing all these armors that maybe that dark maynot be able to afford on whatever reason as followed 50+ :
#bismarckmajivo, Posted: Jan 15 2005 at 3:29 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) They look pretty gimp, Double attack +1% isn't that great, especially when you can only equip one of these (Rare/EX). Plus, as was said before, NIN/WAR doesn't get Double Attack til 50 anyway, and if you're using one of these at 50 I'm kicking you from my group on sight.

Most people, even those who have more money than they need, Find it kinda ignorant when other players expect, even demand that everyone has top notch gear. Not everyone wants to spent 4/5 days of the week farming just so some gill buying snob can approve of their gear. Everyone pays their monthly fee, and if the best of the best in gear was really required to get to accomplish anything, SE wouldnt make mediocre or cheap gear for any level.

I will admit there are times when i PT with someone who's gear is outright horrible for their job, but its good to give some people the benefit of the doubt, because gear doesnt make you a better player, and unfortunately, neither does being rank 10, or having a lvl 75 job. I guess like in real life, ins not good to judge a book by it;s cover.

Just my 2 gil.

I can see how at 50, the dmg on this would be pretty low, but i have seen nins use the nikkiaraoe(sp?), which is lvl 30 with the same dmg, for the -25% spell interuption at that lvl. Plus, who cares if a nin is using this in their offhand. it wont effect their WS dmg, and they shouldnt be in your party as damage dealers anyways. It's having no negative effect on their tanking or evasion, so kicking them out because of this would make you an idiot.

nin/war doesn't get the double attack job trait until 50, yes.
this item, on the other hand, will increse the odds of a double attack happening by 1%...so 1 in every 100 hits on a nin/war with one of these will be a double attack.
it's effectively building in double attack before the nin can get it.

as far as 'kicking you from my gorup on sight,' that's just being an ***.

lol I was considering getting one of these to replace my archer's knife, and well, after reading the post about someone kicking a person for having it I have to laugh. I deal almost no damage with my weapons. I rely strictly on ninja tools and either bullets or shuriken for damage. I use my katana in my main hand just for weapon skills, though I don't build up that much tp. That guy sounds like they belong in the pts I was next to last week in the crawlers nest needing raises and calling for help every 1/2 hour.

The katana is not a strong weapon. It does deal ok dmg, but shuriken, bullets and ninja magic do deal a great amount of dmg faster then them, and though I admit, I am the only ninja I have pted with that does this, I would like to think I hold my own pretty well.

I currently use the Nikkeoroi (or however it's spelled) which is lvl 30 in my main hand, and an archer's knife in my off hand. And well, to be frank, I don't see a need to change. I am currently lvl 44. If I drop the katana, I loose the spell interuption rate, which has helped considerably, and if I loose the archer's knife, I loose the ranged accuracy... And until you throw shuriken you can't imagine what it's like to throw 10 shuriken and have 10 misses... it's like throwing away gil. So, until I find something to compensate for these two stats, or feel a pressing need to change, I will be happy with my equiptment and not to be in your pt.

I could only wonder how useful the extra stats are. As NIN/WAR, you don't get double attack until lvl50...so I don't see this ability noticeably kicking in. If you do use it post 50, then...wtf?

Maybe (just speculation, I really have no clue) it gives you a chance of getting double attacks to go off before you actually get the job ability...kinda like the kraken club. Still though, Getting double attack 1 time every 100 hits will never be better than the -25% spell interruption rate katana, especially as a solo tank in a party.

NO, NO, NO... 1% does not mean 1 of every 100 hits will double attack. Example: if you took a 100 sided die (or 2 10 sided dice one for tens the other for ones) and rolled it there is a chance of getting a 1 more then once every hundred rolls. You could roll and get a 1 ten times in a row and BOOM that's your Double Attack however you could roll it 1000 times and not get that 1 to land. Its all on how the die(dice) go in your favor.
