I got one of these today just for ***** and giggles. Used it for like 4 hours and noticed that for Jins and Kus it wasn't as good as my fudos. Its no an extensive test by any means but I wouldnt get it unless you are gonna be busting out on hit ws's like ten all the time. If you have found otherwise then that cool, but from what I could see, not worth it.
TP difference

The TP Bonus does work, I tested it against multipule types of mobs and the difference was noticeable in every case. With a 5-10 TP float I measured damage output at 100-110 TP with the same Weapon Skill and noticed minimum 40 Damag+ increase on WS and highest with Blade: Ten doing a difference of 80+Dam with the Shamo equipped v.s. unequipped with a stronger Dam base weapon such as Fudo.

The Shamo must be equipped in main hand (as previously mentioned) if you want the TP bonus to work. If you find yourself partying with Drk's and Sam's allot and working in skillchains, this Katana's TP Bonus comes in play nicely. Any bonus damage is good damage plus it allows you to do the same damage as High TP but in half the time waiting for TP.

My HNMLS says that Shamo must be in your main hand for the TP bonus to work.

a few questions

i understand how the TP bonus thing works, but seein this is a Nin weapon (dual wield) will it still be in effect when used in the other hand?

and if it does, notice this is not a rare weapon, does holdin 2 of them enhance the porformance even more? thx in advance
Shamo in Japanese

Shamo, in Japanese, apparently means game fowl, gamecock. At least that's what my JquickTrans program says.

no, it wouldn't be named Martial katana

if you look at the name scheme for the mighty weapons, the katana and the great katana mighty weapons are not named Might *insert weapon here*

so, they ARE following the trend by keeping the two eastern weapons holding a japanese name...

"Martial Katana"

For some reason, the developers choose not to follow their own name scheme. If they had, this would have been called the Martial Katana.

Like all the other Martial Weapons, any WS done with this weapon will perform as though the user had an additional 100% TP on top of what is shown in their TP Bar.

2 rules:
You still need 100% TP in the bar to initiate a WS.
If the user has 200% or more TP, the performance of the WS will be "capped" at 300%.
