I did not see anyone post this, but I believe you will gain TP faster with a Platoon Lance than you would with this. Not that that really makes a whole lot of difference to some people, but if you are setting up distortion, Platoon lance should get you there faster than this guy. Thouhgh I do agree, this does look alot cooler.

Even without the rarely occuring additional effect, this pumps out more DPS than the platoon lance, however... I'm new to drg and I'm not sure how well higher damage weapons work with Jump vs faster weapons.

DPS speaking... Platoon = 37 DMG / 492 Delay
Fuscina = 31 DMG / 396 Delay

so that comes out to... Platoon = .0752
Fuscina = .0782

They're nearly matched, but the Fuscina does come out ahead. Dividing DMG/Delay will always show the best DPS weapon, but if you like planning ahead and hate math, you could always browse on [url]www.ffxiah.com[/url], it'll show DPS (I don't know their formula, but the damage displayed is for comparison purposes). A very useful site.

To put that damage difference into perspective, here's the difference between a Brass Spear and a Brass Spear +1

Brass Spear = 25 DMG / 396 Delay = .0631
Brass Spear +1 = 26 DMG / 385 Delay = .0675

So its about the DPS difference of a +1 Weapon, plus a rarely occuring additional effect. I think I'm going to find out which will be more efficient with Jump before I make a desicion, but I hope this helps someone else out a bit. ^^

If nothing else, its a slightly cheaper alternative to the Platoon Lance. I might just get both and see which one I like more.

yeah i think platoon is its a tiny bit slower then the Fuscina but the platoon dose almost 2* the amount that Fuscina dose ok if ur using war to get to 30 then yeah good investment but if ur lazy and use a monk or thf ( thf is better at 30 yes better then war)then its a bit of a waste of money
Platoon seems a bit better

I used this on my War while leveling Polearm for my Dragoon(always nice to have a weapon capped)

The Additonal effect rarely occurs, and, when it does, the damage is less then a Rdm's Enthunder.

Still looks damn cool though, and it's pretty cheap, so I guess it could be a decent alternative to the Platoon lance.

I was sort of hoping that the effect would happen more often though. Bit dissapointing. Probably wont save this for my Dragoon.

Get Pirate's/(Bandit's?) Chart (one of the two, I don't know which) from Inside the Belly (You know, the quest).
Go to Valkurm.
Start the 20 cap fishing thing with a friend around to beat up the mobs you catch.
Pray for chest.
Pray for this.

Well, actually, don't do that last bit, you can get some REALLY good items from what I hear.
Where do i get this?

Where, other than the AH, do I get one of these. Is it a synth? Quest? Drop? I'd really like to have one for when my drg hits 20.

For a dragoon, I like the platoon lance better. I never get the lightning damage when it could really help. I picked this lance up when I was leveling samurai so I could keep polearm capped for a while, but this isn't my favorite anymore.
