Your gear looks fine, if your damage is low its most likely from lack of buffs.

This, plus I'm curious why you feel it's lacking? Are you comparing your DMG to another DD in same party? What type of numbers are you seeing? I tend to feel the same way when I play SAM, and yours is better than mine. I've just come to the conclusion that my Calad is going to out damage my Masa in most situations.

Yeah SAM is really strong in Ambu this month I feel like. If you're beating an R15 Chango WAR in parse I don't think you're DMG is lacking.

I was opening up with corrosive ooze(33 percent attack and defense down), and it does not stack with Tachi:ageha. But does 3k tp make it stronger? I got a good magic accuracy set for it.

Honestly I think Ambu is a bad place to judge your damage. Seems like the strangest things in there can effect damage out put. Last month my SAM was putting up garbage numbers, easily beaten by my WAR with Dolci on, this month is the complete opposite. Your SAM looks like it's in a great spot to me.

I was also going to ask about Ageha, but then you posted the vid. If you even know to put on Ageha you're miles ahead of most SAMs I have played with.

No outside buffs besides typical RDM, WHM, and SMN this month can make for wonky numbers as well.

Yeah for sure ambu damage mechanics is wonky. I think I was riding the ws dmg of others adding to my ws damage as well. my only other parse is dynamis wave 3 but there is the lag.

SAM couldn't really utilize Overwhelm last month, so that alone had a pretty noticeable impact for those attempting to utilize it.

As far as non-rema options go how does kunimune+1 r15 stack up to other options? The str+20-30 and 500 tp bonus seems nice but the 30~40 dmg dip between other easy to get gkt seems like it might hurt it

Doesn't seem like its worth the time and effort to r15 a unity weapon for Sam. Just go with the ambu weapons until you can get Masamune or the aeonic.

Any Yoichi Sam's out there with some decent gear sets? For both range tp and Namas Arrow.

Anyone mess with Ullr on Sam? How's that working?

This is mostly just for "fun" and situational stuff.

Been awhile since I have looked at or update my ranged sets, but this is what I have currently.
Hope it helps! Also, haven't messed with Ullr.

seems like a nice piece to have for the +5 critical hit rate for masa if you had your relic bow at rank 15

Is Hime domaru +1 r15 any good? Maybe replace Empy Body on fodder? or am I missing something?

Not really, the main thing that makes the Empy body good is the +12 Zanshin as you are normally using other Zanshin items in your fodder set too. Not sure the augments on the Domaru make up for that.

If they decide to do Tumult items, that body is most likely going to replace everything assuming they don't go full SE on us and give it something like subtle blow and regen.

Stingers use will be Shoha. Attack bonus and multiple hits that all benefit from the extra damage limit.
Wondering what people are using for Shoha now
ItemSet 374789
Cape 30STR/attack/acc/WSD, Thrud Earring when Lugra is not active

Not sure on rings/waist/feet

Also stinger should be good for Rana too if attack is capped
