With the new update drg's are final able to obtain a true 5hit build without sacrificing haste slots. Drg/sam will need a total of 36 store tp

Rose Strap = 4

Askar Body = 5

Rajas = 5

Goading Belt = 5

Brutal Earring = 1

Brisk Mask = 4

Stingray(new polarm) Base dmg 98 store tp 8

Ecphoria Ring = 1

Attila's Earring = 1

White Tathlum = 2

36

If you feel as tho you need more acc.. You can always take 5-6 store tp off and replace it with NQ/HQ Store Tp Food. In anycase i think it would be pretty epic to do a event like dynamis or Einy.

Aurum Cuirass has Store TP +7 (2 more then askar) which would free up attila's Earring and Ecphoria ring. Or White Tathlum.

Would be better w/ acc food and the stp in gear than the stp in food and acc in gear

Not worth it. You're giving up ~10+ base damage on your polearm (13 assuming Rhongiomant), minimum 2 haste (head, ring) and potentially 6 (belt, body), and various other offensive stats that vary with your build.

People need to give up this 5 hit nonsense, if you arent a sam it is not worth doing based on current gear. Eating carbonara is gimp as *** in most cases. Hell with this setup you'd be better off using that haste +3 body and eating pizza rather than doing 5 hit. I think people don't understand that +haste = faster weapon skills= more weapon skill damage in the same ammount of time. It also contributes more melee damage. V belt is still better than goading belt if you have it, the only bonus to goading is that it will let you use sword strap on most weapons which is better than pole grip.

Sword v Pole is about the biggest sidegrade ever for DRGs due to jumps not being affected by Sword Strap's delay reduction. If I only had Goading and no V/Bullwhip Belt, I'd probably use it to get out of needing an STP body (2% haste bodies gogo!).

Other than that, 100% agree. 5 hit builds for non SAM or RNG jobs tend to be really iffy simply because of how much you give up. There are exceptions, but most of them rely on Carbonara to avoid giving up offensive stats and thus don't apply anywhere you'd use pizza. Fodder mobs only.

Yea I suppose sword strap isn't a big deal for drg. I was thinking mainly for drks and wars. At least for apocalypse that 5stp is just enough to keep 6 hit and go to sword strap which imo is a big upgrade for me. Warrior would probably get more benefit out of it too based on the returns of DA vs haste on that job.

Yeah I can definitely understand wanting to use it on DRK or WAR... especially Apoc DRK; cap your haste, use Sword Strap, and lose next to nothing in the process.

You can make a decent 5hit with your apoc aftermath ;O

If by decent you mean sacrificing like 20 accuracy, a ton of attack and being dependent on carbonara than sure.

Carbonara, Rose Strap, White Tathlum, Brisk Mask, Aurum Cuirass, Goading Belt, Ecphoria Ring, Rajas Ring, Brutal Earring gets you enough to WS in whatever you want. Haste from Brisk, Goading, Dusk +1/new haste+4 hands, Homam legs... or Homam hands + Blitz + Wtath.

You're definitely giving up acc, especially from food and the body slot, but other than that it doesn't look *too* horrible... certainly far better than the 5-hit options you had prior to this update.

The thing people arent understanding is that our current standards of accuracy are gone. +70 accuracy on gear is going to be average for new content target EVA/level. I think without pizza at level 76 I was parsing only 90% accuracy on promy mobs. In tht specific case going from 90-95% accuracy would have increased all damage by 5%, where going to the 6 hit would have only increased WS damage by about 15%. While this new gear may be amazing for fighting the old content it will still fall short in the long run on the more difficult stuff that is released. If anyone has a different view on that I'd be interested in hearing it.
