Can someone explain to me how Zanshin works? I used to play Samurai a long time ago (CoP/ToAU days) and I thought it only had a chance to be activated on missed melee attacks? I guess that's changed and it can activate on hits too? Does it act kind of like double attack? Does it have lessened TP gain? I read the Zanshin page on BG wiki but I'm not really getting it.

Edit - Never mind, it looks like the relevant info was on the Hasso page.

So I am working on getting Sam up to par and I have been using the gearsets in the bg wiki, and in ejin's item sets to gauge things.

I have run into a bit of confusion for TP sets, specifically Flamma Gambieras +2 vs Ryuo sune-ate +1.

As I look at it between acc, the set bonus, and STP Flamma would be superior to all paths of Ryuo +1. Yet the guide mentions +2 Flamma as an alternative but in a way that suggests its not ideal.

I am clearly missing something. Can the Sam hive brain point out what I am missing?

Zanshin.

Oh...well Eff. I keep forgetting about the Hasso Zanshin thing. So yeah path C would be ideal for that.

Thanks

....... who told you that and/or where did you see that.

I think you think mythic is not the mythic lol. Here;

As with everything, it's situational, but I'd rate SAM weapons like this:

Zerg/WS spam: R15 Masa =~ Shining One > R15 Doji > R0 Masa > R0 Doji >>>>> rest

Solo multi-step SC: R15 Doji > R15 Masa > R0 Doji > R0 Masa >>>>> Shining One

Even beyond that it's situational depending on what buffs you're getting and who else is WSing in your party, but I digress.

Pragmatically speaking, the best, easiest weapon to obtain right now for SAM is the Polearm. But you absolutely still want to get Masa and/or Doji to R15 if possible.

God bless. I was misinformed.

https://www.bg-wiki.com/bg/Community_Samurai_Guide#Survival_Sets

Or just Defending Ring, Tartarus Platemail, -DT augment on cape and a Lori Torque +1 already puts you at -31% DT, leaves a lot to play with.

I use this. thrown together with stuff I had laying around. -10 pdt on cape. puts you at 36PDT 18MDT(leaves all your main slots open for MA tp gear) can also swap Wakido Domaru +3 into body slot(lose some MA but gain stp) to put you at 44pdt 26mdt(capped with shell v)

ItemSet 366861

That's my personal hybrid set, has 38% pdt and 20% mdt. Also dubs as a meva set should you need, can swap in kendat body at the cost of 8 dt in favor of meva. This set also maintains a 4 hit (3 with sam roll) so your dps is still relatively high.

Edit: Back has dex 20, acc 30, 20 atk, stp 10 and pdt -10

My set is pretty much Crowned's set, just swapping Dedition for Cessance and +1 instead of +2 nodowa.

I tried out the Shining One on Wave3 tonight and was very impressed:



Impulse was still making darkness with something so SC damage didn't totally suck like I thought it would.

I used SAM+THF rolls instead of SAM+WAR.

I went out of my way to let TP overflow to 2000~ which only took 1 or 2 attack rounds considering it's SAM, so while WS frequency probably suffered a bit, probably not by a massive amount.

Probably important to note the other DDs are RDM>COR>BRD with the COR and BRD being played by me too, so didn't get a direct comparison vs. a R15 REMA yet.

Update your sets lol I need info's
