I do believe thf can win if super decked, not bc of ws avg, only because the fact they can SA faster is all. However, getting that lv of thf would require you to really be into thf, and since its drk forums idk if many of the readers here would apire to that needed lv of thf for 1 fight that they shine at.

It does not take as much work as you would think. Idle in as much STP for when TP wings are going off, fire WS as soon as SA or TA is up while using as many TP bonus buffs as possible. I was able to hit consistant 99k damage (using Aeonic no HQ abjurations), without any significant changes to my WS set. It doesn't take that much for any DPS job to optimize for that one particular fight.

Discounting SA or TA timer merits, I think THF comes out on top just because you can split up SA and TA, where as a DPS/THF can only depend on SA. There are of course a lot more variables involved as to why one job out performs others, but without enough information as to what buffs are on and how (not what) gear is being used there can never really be a direct comparison. While one might out parse everyone in their current group, that won't always be the case when you work with a different set of players.

All in all, 60K from a DRK/THF is a lot more impressive than the sorry WAR/THF I proceeded to watch spam Savage Blade for 20k during one of those fights. -.- I wish more players would be aware of their jobs like you seem to be, job well done optimizing on a job most don't know enough about.

One thing drk will bring to the table that thf cant, and reason I go drk now instead of thf is abs-vit. This helps everyone by giving the mob -50 vit, then you get the chaos roll bonus for everyone else too 100% of the time. This all adds up for more dps for everyone. Couple that to the fact I see very little dmg difference between my drk and other's thfs (and way better than my thf), its a no brainer for me. Thats not to say drk will be #1 under ideal situations, but its going to be right there with the rest of them plus a few extra things :D

We have a mythic thf, extremely decked out. Comes in 2nd place, aza using calad SA/torc holds first, I normally come in third on that fight as drk/thf, I don't have near the torc set aza has.

Furthermore Aza kept a lead on me vs WoC with his calad/torc drk vs my reso/rag drk. Confirming what was said many times over, the only thing that was holding calad back was the acc.

Calad is, and always has been, in my never to be humble opinion, the better weapon.

Ya After the 6~ Kirin/woc this week testing it I was impressed. I chose to NOT go acc set on most since I havent done kirin/woc on drk since the most recent eva nerf. Your run of the mill zerg buffs had me at 92% basically each fight with calad. This is a very easy to see example of Calad getting better in my eyes. That 3% ill make up very very fast by getting Emicho+1 hands. I also couldnt get near my dps with rag as I did with calad.

Rag still has its place and I recommend any Drk to get it, then once your gear is amazing get calad. I did try Rag on 1 fight to see if I would capp acc and I did at 97.~~% (luck), This lead me to try my mid-acc set which capped me on calad too, but i saw a dps drop from having to ditch so much multiattack, so overall I did better at the 92% acc mark, which means I got to find an additional 30~ acc and I should be capping calad on woc/kirin too.

Not a knock to any mythic wielding THF, but for this particular fight I lean more towards Aeonic's TP bonus vs the benefit AM3 would give. Perhaps things would change if I actually had to TP off the mob so I could WS... (ie: low man situation).

100% true, but then again Acc in general has always been a wall for DRK to break.

Honestly, I haven't thf main in a few years, so I wouldn't know. The SA bonus seems pretty beefy, but the tp bonus is big too, I guess it would depend on the amount of tp you have between ws.

The Mythics bonus to SA/TA is only applied AFTER the fTP multiplier and thus on single hit fTP WS's is a very small increase. For this fight Aeonic THF absolutely destroys Mythic, assuming both have the TP Bonus off hand dagger.

With TP wing usage I was always well over 2k TP in my idle set, which is why I would always fire as soon as timers allowed. Sometimes things would fly so fast I would let out an unstacked Evisceration (I was always sub SAM) to open up double darkness, by the time timers were up I was back to over 2k TP again.

Out of pure curiosity, what setup are you guys using and what # of players do you guys run with? 2 DRK + THF + ???

It really varies, sometimes I don't even go drk and I rdm/sch, we always try to have some brds, cors, geos, obviously. But the dmg is normally held by the drks and the thfs on that particular fight.

With Vajra, assuming you have a good STP idle set (let's say 96 STP) for your TP wings and a modest SAM roll (let's say 8 and no job bonus, so 40), you should be getting 2360 TP from your Lucid Wings II/Daedalus Wing and 1,180 TP from your Lucid Wings I. Adding in a modest Miser's Roll (let's use 8 again), you'd be getting 205 TP return from your WSs, for a total of 2565 from WS > Lucid Wings II/Daedalus Wing and 1385 TP from WS > Lucid Wings I. Now take into consideration you won't be WSing at those TP values, as you'll generally have to wait on SA/TA recasts. These numbers will be slightly larger with Aeneas. As long as your group has TP wing items to use, your Aeneas' TP bonus isn't doing anything for you as long as you have Lucid Wings II and Daedalus Wings to spare, and on a fair number of WSs, a portion of your Aeneas' TP bonus is going to waste after Lucid Wings I.

Instead of just choosing 1, I'd recommend using Vajra while you have TP wing items to rotate, then switch to Aeneas after they're all used up.

This has been a good discussion so far, I reworked more stp into my idle for eriyns now. Will def boost my dps up (was like 20 stp inefficient). But bringing it back to drk again, I know i did toss a few non SA torcs out just to see what dmg ws like at 1k when we went wing spam mode. They landed fairly easy went 2/3~ however i never botherd to ever find his eva, what acc is needed to cap on him? I would bet with all my changes now I could easily pop off a 30k non SA torc in between SA and be just fine. That would be a huge dps gain.

Vajra's SA/TA bonus isn't a modifier enhancement. BGwiki claims it's critdmg+30%; last time I remember having this discussion I recall some questions about whether it was critdmg or a straight +30% damage bonus, but I'm having trouble finding those posts again. Either way it's far more potent than what you've claimed here.

I know several Mythic THF's, it's most certainly not +30% CHD during a WS. Best we can tell it's just a boost on the DEX/AGI modifier like the Gloves are, which on an unstacked attack is a huge bonus but on a WS with a high fTP like Rudras is a minor increase.

Byrth's testing with 99 Vajra appears to contradict your claims:

Quote:
99 THF with Vajra 94+55 DEX and 19% Crit damage bonus.

896c 1011c 934c 1038c 1035c 1024c 997c 1041c 1023c 991c 1022c 929c 982c 1009c 1010c 952c 1037c 1041c 1004c 1016c 985c 930c 909c 1009c 934c 1040c

The predicted max for +30% damage is 1047, and I can't get over that but I can get close. The high frequency part of the distribution ends approximately where we would expect for +30% damage as well.

Shark Bite 100TP: 1962 1969 1969 1933 1834 1942

Well, this sucked for obvious reasons. Maximum predicted damage for Shark Bite with +30% damage to the whole term (including fTP/base damage/WSC) would be +1973. We do not exceed this maximum, but we come close. --Byrthnoth 18:25, 13 January 2012 (EST)

https://www.bg-wiki.com/bg/Talk:Vajra_(Level_99)

If you so firmly believe otherwise then you need to back it up with proper testing, but I think you'll find that these results preclude the possibility of a stat modifier bonus.

Byrth was the person who informed me it was only a +30% boost to the DEX/AGI component. This was back when I was on Lakshmi years ago. Current screwing around with Mythic Rudras doesn't produce the numbers it should.

-=EDIT=-

So did a *** ton of digging into old posts and looks like the original info was tossed out back in 2010 though not widely discussed and as usual buried in a BG thread.

https://www.bluegartr.com/threads/72572-Completed-Relic-Mythic-weapons-list?p=3452653&viewfull=1#post3452653

So yeah CAB +30% now during SA/TA which is pretty damn nice. Probably not as good as Aeonic but becomes more useful if doing Mandalic for different SC properties.

The numbers from the talk page actually show +30% dmg to the whole thing right? Not just CAB.

No it seems to be CAB, which is pretty nice. I'm at the point that I'm not going to trust any testing or information from before Abyssea because too much has been proven to be wrong with more recent testing.

So i have been talking with Azagarth quite a bit as when i was originally playing i was playing mainly ranger or paladin. I did level up DRK and fell in love with it. I feel that even if your putting out amazing damage there is always something to tweak, some change to implement, or other options that could be used. I know that right now my gear isn't optimized, as I am still in what I consider “gearing up” and most of my WS gear specifically resolution is placeholder gear until I can afford the Argosy +1. Most of my time has been in gearing up multiple jobs and farming to build two relics. As such I can’t afford to AG or invest in HQ abjurations yet, but it is something I am working towards. So here are my current gear-sets (not including casting/idle/regen/re-raise/and others). So, any tweaks/advice is appreciated as well as this is a poor man’s DRK right now.


Greatsword Gear sets


ItemSet 349852 ItemSet 349854 ItemSet 349795 ItemSet 349796



Scythe Gear-sets


ItemSet 349797 ItemSet 349793 ItemSet 349855 ItemSet 349856



TP Gear Augments

  1. Valor.Body.TP (Dex+8, Acc+36, Attk+22)

  2. Valor.Hands.TP (Dex+14, Acc+37, Attk+24)

  3. Odyss.Legs.TP (Acc+32, Attk+23, sTP+2)

  4. Valor.Feet.TP (Dex+7, Acc+35, Attk+21, sTP+3)



WS Gear Augments


  1. Valor.Head.WS (STR+5, Acc+15, Attack+18, WSD +2%)

  2. Odyss.Hands.WS (STR+12, Acc+24, Attack+13, WSD +2%)

  3. Valor.Legs.WS (Acc +13, Attack+13, WSD +4%)




Gearswap – drk.lua



Gearswap – augments.lua



Gearswap – enuri_drk_gear.lua



For some reason the code is getting messed up and not displaying properly in this sub-forum so i apologize for the inconvenience as i am currently working on trying to get it to display properly. So i have removed the code sections and just provided links to the lua files.

Great post first off!! Secondly, your sets are looking very nice so far. Quick suggestions to work on :

ApocTP: Use cessance+brutal there, valo legs change to odys legs, Change to lissome neck also, and get either a DA5 aug on a valo mask for head, or betetr is to use flamma+1 head.

Change bale earring out for brutal in reso, for moonshade in CR/enthropy, and id probably use cessance for scourge over it also.

torc set get 2 titan rings, 300k and gives you a big chuunk of vit more.

Last easy to do change is get another pair of ody legs to aug for wsd, they are much better than valo (valo legs is a bst/drg thing).

Good start! Good lua! When i get time i might take a few things.

These are my gear swap files that i am currently using. In the event that you catch something that doesn't work or need something changed please PM me or post on here. I am trying to build a comprehensive Dark Knight Gear swap file that is flexible but solid enough to be used in end game.



Gearswap - drk.lua

Code
--[[    DARK KNIGHT V2.0
	Created by: Enurihel of Asura
	Based off AlanWarren's GearSwap file
	
	This lua will automatically do the following based off triggers
		while asleep equips Berserker's Torque
		While weakened Equips Twilight Helm and Mail
		Will auto cancel Souleater based off defined rules
		Auto-cancel Hasso when Last Resort is active
	
	This lua will also auto detect whether you have Great Sword or Scythe 
	equiped and equip the defined gearset based off that
		Current Auto-detect weapons:
			[*]Ragnarok:	Uses engaged.Ragnarok
			[*]Caladbolg:	Uses engaged.Caladbolg
			[*]Apocalypse: Uses engaged.Apocalypse 
			[*]gsList: 	Uses the defined Greatsword list of weapons
	Additional files needed
		Mote-Include
		CharName_drk_gear (this will house your gearsets)
			Additionally you can choose to house your augments 
			at the top of your gear file or create another file 
			to house your augments for all your jobs.
	User Defined Modes
		Melee Offense Mode
			[*]Normal
			[*]Mid
			[*]Accuracy
		Weaponskill Mode
			[*]Normal
			[*]Mid
			[*]Acc
		Hybrid Modes	
			[*]Damage Taken (DT)
			[*]Re-raise
		Casting modes
			[*]Normal
			[*]resistant
			[*]enmity
	Job ability Defined Modes
		[*]Souleater mode (will toggle Souleater off after 1 WS)
		[*]Last Resort (will toggle Hasso off when active)
	Other aspects of this file 
		[*]Capactiy Mode - equip your CP mantle when engaged and Idle
		[*]Equips Ygna's Resolve +1 while reive status is active 
		[*]If you are wekened will keep Reraise set on
	Rune Fencer as a Sub Job and Rune rules
		When you are /run you will have the option to create 
		and in game macro to cycle through the runes and display 
		specific rune information
			[*]/console gs c rune 
			[*]/console gs c cycle runes
			[*]/console gs c cycle rayke
			[*]/console gs c cycle rune
		if you want to create another macro to move backwards use 
		the same as above just edit cycle to cycleback
	Custom Aftermath gear and gearsets
		Currently this is only setup for Liberator and Apocalypse 
		and in the car file this will only work with Apocalypse
		but in the end that you so choose to create a new gearset
		follow this structure for constructing it
			sets.engaged.Weapon.AM 		--For Liberator it will be AM3
			sets.engaged.Weapon.Mid.AM	--For Liberator it will be AM3

So I have been pondering on getting Anguta or not, and I think I will pull the trigger for it here soon as my next aeonic. With what seems an undying trend of giving 2h DD's 1h buffs, I figured I might as well try and optimize them. Mainly an issue of sam roll which I normally find inferior for drk except for a 3 hit (ws+2hit) build on anguta drk.

With /sam and a lucky roll 4/11 from cor your looking at +52 stp (technically sam bonus 7+ too). This means a 258 tp return from anguta ws as a minimum for first hit landing. So you need to have 78 stp from gear during tp phase for 372 tp a hit or 742 tp in 2 hits. I found this build most drks can achieve, high 7+ stp augs on reisen gear : it has for me exactly 78 stp with my augs

ItemSet 350017

Now could this rival/beat a GS build? I honestly dont know and I would challenge any drk who can test this out to please check, I cannot atm since no aeonic haha.

Just brainstorming, it seems like it could perform well, avg of 1.33 attacks a round isnt bad at all for a 3hit (I view this as 1/4 rounds will allow an instant ws after for practical use). You can really pump out the ws's. If nothing it would be very fun .

Each ws too would be an effective 1750, but where it really shines is with a smn buff, or warcry on effectively letting you ws at 2500. Thats pretty huge and a potential powerhouse.

With max haste your looking at 3.5sec~ needed for 2 rounds, add that to ws lockout of 3 sec, you now have an effective 6.5 sec per ws. However its even better! If you treated all multi hit gear as only a means to 1k+ tp you will every 1/4 rounds get an extra saved round. This means 6.5(4) - 1.5 (saved round) = 24.5 sec for 4 ws. Thats pretty awesome for frequency especially when a 2500 full buffed CR should do 30k~ on most content.

With the af+3 giving us finally useable stat vomit gear for scythe ws (never had as nice before bs no mnd/int etc on argosy), I think it might just give scythe the edge to be very competitive now.

Do you think that the AF1 +3 feet would be better for drain over yorium?

Macc wise, yes. However I currently have Ody feet with +31 macc aug which I use for non- DN/NV usage. They are less macc but by very little and have 9 FC which is nice for recast/time and the 20% spell down is nice since if your draining (non-ds/nv d3) your normally getting hit or might be. Honestly, the feet are probably the last of the 5 af+3 you should get as the increases are very little over other options and useless for a tp/ws. Now if the arcane circle+1 does something cool, then ya it might be a worthwhile piece, but from my understanding theres no difference.

I am not sure about you but I normally am using drain when DS/NV is up since on anything the matters it would resist you heavily anyways without DS up, which means when you would get good returns w/o the Ja's, I am normally macc capped anyhow (fodder). So for me the yorium feet are best because its the only way to get potency in that slott, and with DS the macc becomes trivial in a decent set.

So short answer, if you have af+3 use them on non DS casting. Otherwise id wager yorium with DS/NV is better.

Thanks Aza. That was something that just popped into my head as I was reading and though huh, this might be an interesting alternative.
