Soboro sam/rng in exp video not working for anyone else? I can download it ok, but I think the file might have been removed? Any chance of getting it rehosted?

My galka is a lvl 24 sam/rng and he has Zanshin... And you have it listed as lvl 60.

I dont know if its from an update but Zanshin is a lvl 20 job trait.

Other than that, awsome guide!

Update: Fixed spelling cause i suck.

I came to this place to find out where all the samaurai that I have pt with are getting their information. I now see where.

This is a very good guide and very easy to read. However, it, like others, places emphasis on the warrior subjob.

I am a paladin, and have no desire really to level samurai, but post 60 it seems there will never be a party that does not have at least one in it. Especially since the update to two-handed weapons that has made samurai even more powerful than they already were.

What I would like to point out, is that a samurai spamming WS and berserk from the warrior sub, can and WILL take hate from even a paladin with every slot filled to the brim with enm+. I have over 30 points of added enm with all the gear that I farmed long and hard for, and yet I still find myself forced to cover a berserk-happy sam that can dish it, but of course can't take it.

This is multiplied even more when they wear the pieces of AF that give tp, but strangely enough, also give enm+.

The enm+ on a sam's AF leads me to conclude only that this class, though used as DD, was meant as tank. But since sams will rarely, if ever, be USED as tank, it's very important for a successful party that they do not take hate FROM the tank.

Upon reading this guide, though I see that you did mention that its important to take the party's needs into account, it still talks up warrior as a sub greatly, and thf as a sub not so much. Even that it is listed first makes me think that this is the decided sub of choice for a sam.

I like the sam class and I think that the damage that you do is magnificent. But a paladin, who has access to the most and best enm+ gear in the game, should NEVER have to cover a sam. It has gotten to the point where I seriously will not even join a party unless the sams in it sub thief. The best parties that I have been in were with sam/thf who would trick off me with a tachi:gekko and then sneak a few moments later with the same. Hate was never bounced, and they still were able to outparse everyone else in the party.

And I'm sure that's what all of you are mainly concerned with anyway.

There simply is not enough enm gear in the game available to keep hate from a sam using berserk post 60. And don't forget that berserk enhances attacks, but LOWERS defense as well. So when you take hate from me and my ninja cousins, you are in serious trouble. ESPECIALLY if you are pt with one of my ninja cousins, because they cannot cover you. There are classes in the game with NATURAL abilities that require a paladin's cover, such as our sisters in darkness who have Souleater. A paladin should never have to cover you because you are using an ability from a subjob.

So please, all of you sams out there who will not tank, cut your parties a break and level thf to 37. It make's everyone's xp much faster.

It's funny. When I first started paladin my biggest fear was 'will we have a good enough mage that I will live to see the next battle?"

Now, when I get a pt invite, my biggest fear and first question is, how many sam/WAR do you have? Because I am no longer the one in any danger of dying.

Cyan Values indicate natural position of 70+ Store TP Trait+25 Passive.
Lime Values indicate a position that can be obtained by equipping 1 piece of +Store TP ( IE:Hachiman Sune-
Ate or Kote )
Red Values are NOT achievable, even with maxed merits/ALL Store TP gear/Food all on.
Thanks and credit to Shanock, for the Chart.

Due to the recent TP adjustment update, this Chart will undergo a few minor changes.

main:	Futsuno Mitama 		(8) 
range:	none?			(0) 
head:	Hachiman Hakama +1 	(4) 
neck:	chiv chain		(1) 
ear1:	brutal			(1) 
ear2:	Haten Earring		(2) 
body:	Shinimusha Hara-Ate	(9) 
hands:	Hachiman Kote +1		(9) 
ring1:	rajas			(5) 
ring2:	psi Ring			(5) (salvage onry) 
back:	Bushido Cape		(1) 
waist:	none?			(0) 
legs:	Shinimusha Haidate 	(6) 
feet:	Usukane Haramaki		(7) 
5 store tp merits			(10) 
total: +68 store tp 
food: ambrosia			(7) 
total: 68+7 = 75+25 = 100 

this should give 26 tp per hit, and still not the most you can get

sam roll of 11 is +23 store tp = 123 total

28.99 tp per hit, still onry 4 hit build. but you could get a 5 hit build with any other delays (that you listed), and a 4 hit build for anything with 460+ delay, even without the 8 on Futsuno Mitama. or a 3 hit build with relic GK lol.

kinda pointless, but i was bored >:O

for anyone that bothers to read to the end of this, the correct sTP chart should be:

Delay  WTP    8Hits   7Hits   6Hits   5Hits   4Hits    
399   10.2    23      41      64      97      146      
407   10.4    21      38      61      93      141  
414   10.6    18      35      58      89      136  
420   10.7    17      34      57      87      134  
428   10.9    15      32      54      84      130  
436   11.1    13      29      51      81      126  
437   11.1    13      29      51      81      126  
450   11.5     9      25      46      74      118  
463   12.1     4      19      39      66      107  
464   12.1     4      19      39      66      107  
480   13       0      10      29      54      93

max COR SAM roll is +50sTP, so with a full sTP build, food, and COR you could theoretically reach any value on this chart except the 399 4hit, but you're still a few shy of being able to get a 3 with with anything but Ito (999 delay).
I don't believe in good guys versus bad guys anymore… I only see a plethora of states acting in self interest… with varying ethics and moral standards of course, but self-interest nonetheless
