Planing on duoing with a friend for our G1 items, prefer to do this 'on level' if we can than sitting by while a helpful 99 demolishes the mobs for us. :)
Hardest by far is the Lich, and we're going to try THF + RDM - THF for TH2 due to the horrendous drop rate and RDM because from past experience and a trial run as DNC + WMH the Lich's Ice Spikes caused huge problems with paralysis (my WHM spent most of his time and MP trying to keep the Dancer un-patalyzed). While we were able to kill 2 it was a near thing with my MP, so I figure RDM for Dispel.
With that background, here's my question: what weapon should my RDM use?
I have both Sword and Club capped. My current sword is a Crimson Blade (DMG: 28, Delay: 231) and I have a Tactical Magician's Wand (DMG: 15, Delay: 210). With the sword I have 180 ATK and the club 169. My question is given the Lich's -50% stabbing damage and his +50% blunt damage, with an Enfired weapon which of these two will do more damage? I just don't know enough about the math behind damage calculation to know how to decide.
Can someone who understands this help me out? Obviously I can 'suck it and see' but fighting a T ot higher BLM is not the kind of situation I feel happy using as an experiment. :)
