A 5-hit build withouth the tp bonus is inferior to a 6-hit with the hagun bonus. It doesnt trump hagun.
Depends, the number of WSs vs the potency of the WSs. Assuming 150STR and a pDIF of 2.0 to make things easy to follow.
(75 + 16 + 92)1.975 * 2 * 1.19 = 859
Rindomaru (Enough STP to get 5hit, 5% WS damage, and 3-5ACC):
(77 + 16 + 92)1.6625 * 2 * 1.19 = 730
Thats ~17% more WS damage from Hagun on a per WS basis, before counting a 5% WS damage bonus as I'm not sure if it would be a +0.05 to fTP or a % bonus like overwhelm. The difference would be 752 damage if it's a fTP bonus vs 761 damage if it's a % stacked with Overwhelm.
Over the course of 1000 swings, assuming 100% ACC to make things easier, Rindo will be able to WS 250 times, while Hagun will WS 200 times.
That totals as 171,800 WS damage Hagun, 182,500 WS damage Rindomaru, again before considering Rindomaru's WS damage bonus. Rindo also looks to be better for tping, with 2 base damage and a chance for ACC+ over Hagun.
The only way Hagun can beat out a dream Rindomaru would be if the sacrifices to get a 5 hit with Rindo were so great they negated the advantages.
You need 74 STP with a 450 delay GKT to get a 5hit.
7 Usu feet
6 Usu Body
4 Rose Strap.
The downside is that this gear needs to be full timed, so you lose a couple STR on WSs.
I'm sure there's some little things I left out, like the differences in optimal tping gear for both sets, the STR difference in WSs, etc., but I'm not a SAM so @#%^ it.
Rindo looks like good competition for Hagun to me.
30 extra damage per 1000 on WS will not compensate for the extra stats and lower delay on an ebow.
Again I'm not a RNG, but if Fay Gendawa's higher delay lets it WS one shot sooner, wouldn't it be the same as Naglering, which despite higher delay trumps other GS with higher dps because of its 6hit build?
Disregarding the delay for now since we don't yet know exactly how high the -delay on the augments can go, and I don't know sh*t about Xhit builds for RNGs, Assuming one of the 3 augment slots is taken by -delay, it comes down to 2STR and 1 base dmg vs 4atk, 2acc, and 3 AGI, (from know augments) which is questionable and depends on what you're fighting. Fay Gendawa also has a higher weapon rank if that means anything. Edited, Jul 27th 2009 12:24am by Arucaurd
