Before it was simple.
6-hit first, then toss haste where available. This was before Haste was so easy to come by and stack high however.
Now people are talking 5-hit and such due to the massive sTP equip available.
However every time I check somewhere it mentions Usukane, Rajas, and Brutal.
Well, I will never get any Usu. Ever. Looks amazing, would love to, not willing to do Salvage. Wasn't before I quit, definitely not now that the players have move up and beyond it.
Raja's and Brutal are excellent... if you have them. Waiting on friends for CoP(I know most can be solo'd, but I am waiting on them just the same and the ones coming up are not soloable anyhow for me).
My question is simple:
Gear for 6-hit or gear for haste?
Bushi / Fowling
Sniper's / Woodsman
With this it gives me 17% Haste + Hasso(not to mention 18acc 25atk and 30str).
But I am wayyy off on sTP.
Right now I have only the +1 from Chiv Chain and ONE merit..(I know, just dinged 80 though)
So my question is this: Do I swap out Perle for Shinimusha Haidate / Hara-Ate. I'd say Hachiman but the AH has been void of those for over 3 weeks now. Any piece but body anyhow.
I can camp the Haidate(yay Gobbie things) and I have the Subligar for the Hara-Ate.
Trying to do these WS trials so I can fairly assess Keito+1 WSD+10% since it's "so good" and would love to know: Haste vs sTP to get it done before I go mad.
In the meantime.. off to Uleguerand!
