this scythe is by far the best scythe has a high delay good tp gain and i hardly miss ^^ I LOVE IT just slap on some acc gear and go to town on mobs

i just got this scythe as my DRK30 and i love it already. im used to th delay o it because i used scythe from 18-27 and didnt mind much on delay then. In my opinion though this weapon should have acc+5 or something because otherwise its hard to hit with.. hoever because of my low Elvaan DEX i try to get that up as much as posible.
i have the following equiped:
Spike neckalce: STR+3 DEX+3 MND-6
2 Balance rings: DEX+4
Pickeled Hearing DEX+3 MND-3
Centorions gloves: DEX+1
Centorions Visor: DEX+1

total stat boost STR+3 DEX+12 MND-9
since im DRK i dont realy need MND but with this my DEX is just as good as my STR. i was wondering is Vision ring would help more then 1 of the Balance rings however

***** the cent. gloves go w/ royal squares gloves... +2 acc.

2 dex = 1 acc

2 DEX [Balance Ring] = 1 Accuracy.
Vision Rings = 2 Accuracy.
Two Vision Rings = 5 Accuracy.

I'm lvl 43 now and I really miss this Scythe >.< The delay is huge, but it will always be on DRK, and this has a HUGE advantage; 528 seems to be exactly 12.5% tp gain. That means that even if you take no hits at all (PLD or excellent NIN tank) you'll get EXACTLY 100 tp in eight hits. When I got my Mutilator at 40 I wanted to scream, it consistently stuck me at 97-99 tp just to annoy me ~.~

Fingerspitz: {Dark Knight} {Scythe} @97%
SCPartner: 102% {Ready to start skillchain!}
Fingerspitz uses Last Resort
Fingerspitz misses.
Fingerspitz misses.
SCPartner: 153% {Ready to start skillchain!}
Fingerspitz's Last Resort effect wears off.
Fingerspitz: son of a *****!

I <3 528 delay. Enjoy this while you can (I actually used for 10 levels ^^; the damage bonus from using any other scythe really wasnt worth it until the acc bonus on Mutilator).

Im currenlty using this scythe right now and it is great,dont see why people think its a long delay, guess they dont cast between hits. if u have a good dex u'll land the hit, and yea,if u use soul eater and last resort u will be hitting 100+ and with a meatkabob even more.. though i prefer using zerk instead of last resort.. lasts longer. If you are a dark knight between lvl 30-40 get this scythe if u dont have it already. If you dont have a good weapon say good bye to pt invites, ur a dmg dealer...weapons come 1st^^

Casting spells in between hits will have an effect on the delay on the weapon. When you start to cast, your delay is 'paused' and when the casting is over, the delay starts again.

More than once I've begun casting a spell, only to attack while charging or casting. The attack animation doesn't occur, but the sound of the hit does as well as the damage. I know this is my attack, too, because I filter out everyone else's attacks. So, I don't know if spell casting really affects weapon delay.

Delay is a must for a drk, if you hit 50 dmg every 5 second, you will be dead or close to be lol

Where can you get this item?!
RE: Where?!
# Jun 16 2004 at 3:22 PM Rating: Decent
I am a lvl 28 DRK, and yes, this is a good scythe, I will definitely be using it when I hit lvl 30, as nearly all other DRK's around lvl 30 do. Every scythe has bad delay, thats why I have my GS up to date so I can switch between the two depending on various mobs' AGI/EVA stats.

Is this weapon better than frostreaper? if so, how much?

With a delay like this..u need high DEX....
PLayer misses <t>
*waits several seconds*
Player misses <t>
*waits several seconds*
Player misses <t>
*waits several seconds*
Player hits <t> for 89 points of damage
*waits several seconds*
Player misses <t>.

nice damage + low acc= a quick boot from your party

You don't need high DEX to hit more than 1 out of 5 times. And you make it seem like you only need DEX items if you have this weapon.. you need DEX items no matter what two handed weapon you're using.
RE: delay
# Apr 21 2004 at 5:48 PM Rating: Excellent
the delay won't be much more than the average delay you see on scythe's. most of them are around 480, a few 470, the lowest at 466. It'll be around a 10% increase in time to wait, BIG DEAL! It's worth it for the damage.

%increase in wait time from 480 delay: 9.1%
%increase in wait time from 470 delay: 11.0%

so if it takes you 10 seconds to swing with a weapon that has a 480 delay, it'll take you 11 seconds to swing now...wow, i'll take my chances

I'm using this scythe right now. I don't notice the delay between 480 and 520 at all. A half second maybe. Not bad. Besides, doing 100dmg to IT is great, and lights up the eyes of people ^_^
So delay is not a factor (though as mentioned this is only true if you have good dex. Better get some dex+ stuff.)
# Jan 16 2004 at 8:19 PM Rating: Default
i think if you maxxed out your dex best you chould it will hit quicker than you think :)
RE: delay
# Feb 27 2004 at 2:14 AM Rating: Default
Lol Delay,
I am a mithra, with a 48 dex, i hite 80% of the time in the Citadel at level 33. :P
RE: delay
# Feb 11 2004 at 1:34 PM Rating: Default
also this weapon have high damage. very useful when fighting enemy with strong defense. While everyone hit the enemy for 0 damage. U can make them look like rat by whacking for 50+ damage.
RE: delay
# Feb 11 2004 at 1:30 PM Rating: Default
no dex does not increase attack speed. Dex determine where u land a hit and also determine if u land a critical. This is useful if you have two handed weapon that have long delay because 1 hit will kill the enemy. (providing u have enought attack and strength) TIP: eat mithkabob or other powerful food items to incrase attack and strength.
