From my exparimentation, it adds half the dictance to 300. So 100=300 200=250 and so on.
Tp bonus

Martial Sword is a great sword... no spirits within, no dual wielding.

Martial Anelace is the 1h sword.

ok i have the 1 hand sword for my pld. Here is how it works. what ever TP you have this adds 100 to it and caps at 300tp. So with this sword you do the same dmg at 200 tp as you do with 300. I tested this the easy way. Spirit within at differnet TP with normal sword and with this. Sense Spirit Within dmg is based on health and TP it is very easy to get consisten results. One note this sword needs to be in main hand to work. So i dont think you can use 2 of these type items. The only one i wondering about is bow i think it will omly add 100 tp to range weapons skills even tho PLD can use i think you would need to sub rng to get any benefit from it, but only a guess till i buy one of these bows and test.

i Think these come from uncapped ENMs and they are calculated as +50% of your current TP, so if you're at 100 its 150, if you're at 200 its 300 etc etc

I don't think it can be used to exceed the 300% TP limit, though I have not tested it myself.

I've already seen several of these fancy Martial weapons in people's bazaars... I'm sure a lot of people are wondering... where do they come from?

There's two schools of thought on this, both of which point to a very expensive Martial Sword for good cause.
These are both easily testable by someone who can get their hands on the sword and try it out. Both agree that the sword adds 100% to the TP but disagree on the cap.
Some say it doesn't cap at 300% but rather acts like 400% while others say it's capped at 300% so saving past 200% would be pointless.

Think of it this way. If you have TP Bonus and you've saved up 200% for Spirits Within, it will now do the equivalent to 300% and the damage will be HP/2. A very good time saver.
Now consider there is no cap and that TP bonus extends to 300%+100%, and Spirits Within can actually do more than half your HP in damage.

Either way, this is a great sword for PLD to deal hate-grabbing damage.

Supposedly the TP Bonus means your WS damage is calculated at +100%tp from your current, capping at 300%.
