Thanks not one of you explained what Mercy Stroke does... some links, but can't open. All I read is (I want this)... I don't want it because I have no Idea what Mercy Stroke is.

Mercy Stroke is Thf's Relic Weapon skill. You can only use the weapon skill 'Mercy Stroke' with this dagger in your main hand!

Actually, it could be Brd or Rdm's Relic Weapon Skill too, not just Thfs <.<

The poison is sick also... its a hugee cloud of poison no other spell or weapon does it its mandau only.
It does this.

mandau has the added effect of poison. mercy stroke dramatically increases the rate of cricitals after weapon skill. i forgot how long it last but i have seen it in action... amazing

For every 100% TP used (rounded down) you become Invincible (as per the PLD 2-hour) for 5 seconds

You tard, no it doesn't. That only kicks in every now and then, according to people who have it (one of which is a pld on my server). If you're going to try and flame people who are using mand and exc for an idea, at least know what you're talking about in the first place.

i have a question for you, how "according to people who have it(one of which is a pld on my sever)" be true if a PLD cant even use this f'ing dagger you dumbass, man get ur **** straight before u start callin ppl tards, ur the only tard on the site.

No kidding... as if you could magically use the WS for dagger when main is sword... There is no purpose to DW Excallibur and Mandau... other than to show off you have more gil than you know what to do with.
# Apr 08 2006 at 6:38 PM Rating: Default
Look... People keep saying "Duel Wield" this with the Excalibur. Obviously this is probably a great plan. However, talking about using "Mercy Stroke" and if it can be used in the off-hand... What the hell is wrong with you? You do KNOW what "Knights of the Round" does correct? No? For every 100% TP used (rounded down) you become Invincible (as per the PLD 2-hour) for 5 seconds. Now unless the Mercy Stroke WS effect is something equally sick...

(i heard it just increases Criticals... which when you are using Excalibur and Mandau isnt great since you dont get crit damage from the "Additional effect" of the Excalibur...)

First off, you would have to be a red mage subbing ninja in order to offhand this, secondly, it's a little farfetched to offhand this, and like the other guy said, the invincible effect only kicks in every once in a while. Would be a semi-smart plan but I don't think you're able to obtain two weapon skills, especially having this in off hand I would think the effect is non-latent and also disables you from using the weapon skill since we're obviously offhanding it and mainhanding a sword. Not to mention, whatever type of weapon is in your main hand, it uses that type of weapon skills (club = club weapon skills, so on and so forth).

This dagger
# Mar 05 2006 at 7:47 PM Rating: Decent
This dagger is owned by a guy by the name of Cleen on Fenrir server. He isn't the richest, possibly far from it. It's just that his dynamis ls is a very well organized ls. From what I've heard they give the bills and stuff to people doing the upgrades and really commit to the ls. This way there ls grows stronger and stronger along with getting better strategies, more experience as a group, and more.

hey just wondering if any 1 knows what affects the mercy stroke WS. i mean like dancing edge's acc iss affected by tp and it has a chr modifier. shark bite has big dex modifier and its dmg is affected by tp and such, just wondering if any 1 has ANY idea what mercy stroke is affected by and how it is affected. maybe if someone can convince someone w/ this dagger on thier server to hold the cursor over the mercy stroke WS to see what affects it and take a pic of it?
#REDACTED, Posted: Jan 08 2006 at 7:11 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) come on.. plz dosent one NA have this on any server? so far not one ive heard of having fully upgraded version, Im sure only japanese actually have relics so they dont post here :(

I would like this WS... for a signature weapon skill . >.> Best of all, i'm RDM and can learn this :D. Too bad Excalibur is probably a better choice than this for me right now.

Do both and duel wield it with NIN subbed. lol
# Oct 10 2005 at 1:52 AM Rating: Default
Would that combo work? With the Martial in your main hand and Mandau in your other. Or do you need Mandau in your main hand to have Mercy Stroke? Cause that combo would just plain own. >.> then again Stylet+Martial would be damn good too.

/em is getting wet just thinking about the goodness. /drool XD

I'm gonna guess that as mercy Stroke is a dagger weaponskill, you would need to have a dagger in your main to use it.

So, get Mandau, and offhand it with a Martial Knife :D

Let us know how it turns out.

"TP bonus" is bound to the weapon, so offhanding the martial would be about as useful as having a mandau in your mog safe since you don't do the ws with your offhand weapon. . .

RDM/NIN is the only job that can dual wield relic weapons. Excalibur + Mandau = death.
# Mar 09 2006 at 5:32 PM Rating: Default
Pld. Excalibur/Aegis.
Brd Mandau/Gjallarhorn
War Ragnarok/Bravura
Sam Amanomurakumo/Yoichinoyumi
Drk Ragnarok/Apocalypse
Rng Yoichinoyumi/Annihilator
i guess pld is the only one that can "dual wield", but theres enough relic to keep those jobs very busy.
