K here is a 2004 reach around, er back... May the Flames rain down apon me.

Disclaimer: Staves are used for resting HP, Curing, and Possible -pdt kiting. (Not so valide with new -PDT swords and gear)I know sword will always DOT greater than staff and DW swords is great for any real dmg. That being Said. Lets Say for fun we try...

Fulcrum Pole
(Staff) All Races
DMG: 92 Delay: 412
STR+15 DEX+15 VIT+15 AGI+15
Lv. 87 MNK / WHM / PLD / DRG

I know its been proven staves are worthless for DD. Though I have pulled out some incredible numbers with pld/thf Full swing with Kinboko staff. 2-3k. Havent done it since I was 75 but have been meaning to try in abyssea with all the new str bonus atma. With a giant boost in Dmg and the added 15 Str. this would be quite the Full Swing. Could /sam be better DOT yes. but for a "WOW wtf a PLD/THF with a lolstaff just Out WS my War" its gotta be good for some S&Gs. Eww and god forbid we hit bones or Magic Pots. OOO or Bones with Holy circle and the new circle ability up, 25% dmg boost? yes please!

For those that can crunch numbers in theory what kind of dmg would this pole do with Full Swing?

The sword held high with virtue and might,
A Shield in hand protecting what's right,
Through Darkest night may valor shine bright,
May Goddess Altana bless you with her light.

Better off using Pluto Staff with Cataclysm or Greatsword and Ground Strike. If fighting bones just cast Banish 2 and continue using sword.

One to be born
from a dragon
hoisting the light
and the dark
arises high
up in the sky
to the still land.
Veiling the moon with the light of eternity
it brings another promise to mother Earth
with a bounty and mercy.

D92 and ~300 STR (with 60% Critical Hit damage) would give you:
92+18+127 (from 50% STR) = 237 Base Damage
237 * 5 fTP * 3.15 Max Crit * 1.62 Crit damage (Brave Grip) = 6047 max damage

So yeah, if you're lucky and well-geared, you can break 6000 damage. More would be possible with good augments on Heca Hands, and even more if you get lucky with Valkyrie Sabatons Augments. Still though, you're sitting around 6500 max without a brew, I'd think.
Yay for Jhereg!
