Learn to play? I can't really say more than that. If you honestly don't believe that BLU is among the better DDs then that only shows your immense level of ignorance and incompetence.

Ignoring the obvious troll who probably doesn't even play the game:

THF can't get close to BLU.

Yeah, I'd put BLU over DRG quite handily.

BLM can put out decent enough damage, but it can't get close to any of the DDs that I listed, unless it's not proccing at all.
Idk if you put it way over drg lol. I see +2 drgs with good ws sets spam stardiver for 3k lol... and thats with a 20k polearm. I guess i havent really seen any good blues lol. Ill have to start paying attention to them.

My average CDC in Voidwatch is around 2.3~2.8k depending on the NM and how often procs are hit. My DoT is vastly superior to most any 2h DD as well.

On T6s, it's more around 1.3~1.5k depending on procs once again.

Can spike higher in either case obviously, my highs are just over 4k.

Have some parses, though I do dislike using those as conclusive evidence.

5.25 fTP, 60% DEX mod, 15% base critrate, plenty of breathing room for triple + double or 2x triple attacks, and superior skillchain properties vs 6.0 fTP, 30% DEX mod, 10% base critrate, 6 hits native (including DW), and having to alternate with an inferior weaponskill in order to maintain aftermath.

Yeah, okay.
I would like to first start by saying... Chant > Evisc by a good amount.

But Skillchain Properties? Really ⌐ ⌐?

Also, Rudra's is nowhere near inferior if its Stacked with SA and TA, its actually better, cause Rudra's Stacked Poos on Chant and doesn't look back. (If the person you're talking too is a DNC, Forgive me - I only consider THF when talking about Dagger potential)

That and Exenterator would be a better comparison outside Abyssea.

5hit(offhand) 1.0fTP ~100% AGI Mod. (Can't Crit)
vs
4hit(offhand) 2.25fTP 60% DEX Mod. (Can Crit)

This isn't even including a Weapon like Mandau, with Mercy Stroke With +40% Damage to a 3.0fTP 60%STR Mod WS, Stacked with SA/TA makes it quite mean... and the 13% CHance of Triple Damage proc doesn't hurt. and the additional 5% Crit rate aftermath is a little nice.

BLU's a great job, But a good THF would have no problem keeping up with a good BLU... If i could copy my THF to the test server, We could spend some time together and I could show you (or you me!) How a good THF / BLU Performs.

blu's cool; they are really interesting to watch and see them blow up stuff

but imo nothing gives that vibe of a harbinger of death while wielding a giant scythe or swinging a sword thats twice as tall as my mithra

I'd like to see a Rudra shitting on Chant and not looking back, if you would. Chant du Cygne is the superior weaponskill, and I can use it to its fullest more than once every 60 seconds. In fact, I can use it every 6~10 seconds.

Exentrator isn't even in the same ballpark, so idk why you even bothered to bring it up.

Edit: hey Krizz, can you remove the troll

Once every 30s, 25s if you merit...

5.25 at 300% - DEX60% - 100% Crit

vs

2.25(4-hit when dual wield) at 300% - DEX60% - 40% Crit Rate.

Chant is quite good, Damn good, But a Stacked Rudra's is much better. and Exenterator doesn't fall far behind a good Chant.

Again, If i can get my Player on the Test Server, We can do a few things together! It would be a fun experience.

No one else had brought it up so i hadn't yet >_>? Yah, IDK :X

BTW, Are you guys aware you post entirely too fast? Can't even get my edits in, And thats 90% of my Post.

Initial Babbling > Cleaning > Editing > Finish.

blu can ws,cast spells and skillchain for tons of dmg

whereas drg can burst out a ton of weaponskills in a short period of time. iono, would depend on the mob you're fighting?

I just remember watching a relic sam compete with a stardiver drg...the drg was easily keepin up with the 3.5k shohas lol...I just really want to see some actual blues do some dmg instead of being on proc duty.

/sigh. You've forced my hand. Multiple Qilins.





One of the many that I have. The Vere MNK didn't have buffs, myself and the WARs had BRD and COR.

Chant du Cygne is 5.25 fTP btw, Karb. You aren't accounting for additional hits.

I agree with DRKs needing at least one AOE buff!

SAM has Shikikoyo. DRGs jumps can effect Enmity. WAR has Warcry and Blood Rage, etc. Heck, Monk even has mantra XD

I know - 2.25 + 1/1/1

I didn't add them to the above particular post because it was already mentioned 2-3 Times previously and i thought people would fill in the blanks already >_>.

Repeating it felt redundant ;x

Also, I do parse sometimes - This is just two Pils. i died during most of them as well... Pick-Up DD's yay?

Edit: Just the one Pil

Used to have a Bunch of parses usually showing my Mandau THF as the First or Second DD (usually only behind damn good Vereth MNK or Ukon WARs). But i know parses can be a bit skewed... Deaths etc.

For instance, even though i did 25% of the Damage in this Parse, I was dead for the last ~2 minutes of the fight, and Caclax did poorly cause he got dropped early on unluckily because of a Doom situation. He did much better when he actually survived (I think he averaged around 30% of the Damage across 4 fights, Me only about 24%)

Either way, I Deleted quite a few of them :( since I only did them for fun.

Cleaned my parse.

It's not to be taken as an example of BLU decimating other DDs, as it normally shouldn't, however it is proof that a good BLU is also a top tier DD.

I think anyone on a melee job who is (a.) geared exceptionally well, (b.) highly skilled, and is (c.) at least somewhat OCD about their performance will basically be highly competitive in Voidwatch.

For most jobs, remove any of the restrictions (a.), (b.), (c.) and your chance of performing or parsing competitively drops dramatically.

For MNK and WAR, you can remove 1-1.5 of those restrictions and still pull a decent parse (SAM doesn't get that luxury).

Sooooooo jealous.

Yes you have. It's funny because after reading a wall of text rant on here about full timing th gear from you I went to do something in game and whats this?
Karbuncle full timing th gear. Maybe I should of took some screen shots of the nm being 30% and a thief's knife being swung around.

Lol, Proof please? Oh wait, You won't have any, Cause you're talking out of your A**.

I haven't even equipped a Thief knife since i fought GoafTrap and Goblintrap for a friend, and that was because they asked me too.

And rarely in voidwatch when an Alliance leader asks me too. Gotta do what you gotta do.

That thing bare leaves my Mog sack... But I have a feeling if i argue much longer even more of your lackeys will come ride your posts, regardless of content. Maybe we should wrap this up...?
