I've tested this out a bit and its pretty clear what this does. It improves everything on automaton and it also boosts abilities/spells/WS potentecy. So it'll be a good idea to use this before your automaton WSs or does that huge 3 ice manuver MB. The boost is something like 25% to everything, i'm just giving you an idea on how much overdrive improves your automaton.

Currently 50 pup, and i've used this 2 hour a couple times and yes it pretty much is useless. Honestly i dont see any difference in what it does. But i was thinking maybe its something like this... If your current Melee/Range/Magic isn't alrdy capped, possibly the PUP's 2 hour makes it so it caps for the remainder of the 2 hour. Then again ... why even bother still be pretty useless :P. Just a thought and like i said have no idea what it does, and i don't think SE does either. LOL!

Ok I am a lvl 33 PUP/NIN. I rarely use 2hrs abilities because my main is a 45 RDM and right now RDM 2hr is not that good except for mass healing if there is no whm in pt and we are in trouble. Anyway I was pting outside norg and got a link halfway thru a fight and I took the link on and used my 2hr. I did not see any differance in my pups hits or magic. Currently using the RDM frame. I am hopeing this gets better at later lvls. At this time it seems very useless. Would love to hear from a high lvl pup that has used this.

Or does this help very little? I'm not even sure what it does, to tell the truth.
Don't hate me because I'm fabulous. Hate me because I'm a better than you.
