No REMA here,

The polearms I have:

- Annealed Lance
- Reienkyo w/ QA+2 augment
- Habile Mazrak
- Olyndicus w/ good augments (don't remember atm)

Almost all the time, I'm using Annealed Lance.
This is also the only pulse weapon I have in hand atm.

Does it worthto convert it into the ambu polearm ?

"worth it" = question for you to decide. I had no personal attachments to any of my glow weapons, so it was easy to toss up the dueces.

I mean, just from a weapon stats perspective trading in the annealed to make the ambu would be an improvement

DPS: 3695 DMG:303 Delay:492 STR+20 Attack+40 Polearm skill +242 Parrying skill +242 Magic Accuracy skill +188 "Regain"+15

DPS: 4162 DMG:333 Delay:480 DEX+20 INT+20 MND+20 Accuracy+40 Attack+30 Magic Accuracy+40 "Magic Atk. Bonus"+21 Magic Damage+226 Polearm skill +250 Parrying skill +250 Magic Accuracy skill +250

Higher polearm skill, higher base damage, slightly lower delay (which could change your builds), more acc, more att. It seems like its an upgrade in almost every way.

That would be the set I would consider using with low TP Impulse if I had all pieces. If someone can test that, that would be cool :P

ItemSet 365593

So my valorous feet are 5% crit damage (probably needs changed to crit rate). I do not have Dgn Collar or Dagon.
In place of those all I have is Lustratio Harness +1 (double attack and STR path. Probably need to switch to crit path). Cape is WSD and STR 30. Neck I don't have anything remotely close to mimic 4% crit and that kind of STR. So it was basically open :(

100 WS's and I probably only saw an average of 20k (low TP). Had two spike to 43k and 47k on apex bats in dho gates(3k TP). I even would use stardiver to lower their crit evasion. Never really saw any difference there.

I really can't see how this weapon beats rema. Unless maybe in a party setup with Rogue roll and Ramuh favor? Otherwise self skillchaining seems far superior.

Was that 3k TP WS in 50%+ WSD gear? or same set as for low tp?

Rogue roll is a must imo. Also optimal use of this weapon is WSing at 2000+ with WSD and Rogue roll. Its really about party composition too. If you pair this polearm user with COR GEO BRD DNC WHM, DNC can use Tauret and do Feather Step and both DNC and Polearm user will benefit from Rogue roll and Feather Step.

From practical perspective this polearm was used by Ejin on SAM in his Dynamis yesterday and he was saying that he never saw volte dying so fast in his previous attempts. His avg on Volte mobs was 42k. He was holding TP to 2000-3000, which for SAM is still objectively high WS frequency.

Ah, Yeah I forgot to mention that. The 43k and 47k at 3k TP was using the same set. So just 10% wsd from the cape when I got those.
That's why I feel the polearm will probably shine better for Sam and War, but I'm still beginning at Drg. I'm sure there's someone on here who could test it more properly

Trade it for Shining one. No contest

I think people are putting way too much emphasis on the crits.

I think gearing for crit is a mistake. I'll fully endorse rogues roll though.

You might be right. Ramuh Favor I didn't see any difference. But Ifrits favor I saw a better result with.

I mean for me there is 2 use cases for this polearm and Impulse Drive.

1st is using STR, multi-attack and crit at low TP
2nd is using WSD, STR at high TP

and in 1st set I would only go for crit pieces when they add a lot, while also having high everything else.

So Flamma hands has 8% crit rate, but also 31 STR with set bonus.
Emp +1 legs has 11% crit damage, but also 41 STR.
Valorous feet can have 5%crit rate, 4% crit damage, but also 27 STR.

I just think big bonuses to crit can be competitive vs mediocre bonuses to multi-attack at low TP, while not really vs WSD at high TP.

High TP set would look like this:

For a tp set, i am just using a 5 hit with more ma set like i do with gungnir. Anyone else think this seems right for shining one or should i try for a 4hit instead like i do trishula to push more damage. Also does it seem better to just hold till 2k ish then ws or just do like stardiver?

If you're soloing, you're way better off with Tris and self sc. You can probably 3 or 4 shot apex SC. shining would take like 7 or 8 impulses, and you're waiting till 2k.impulse is only gonna shine in massively buffed events spamming ws with other people.
Now I dont have a Tris to know. But drakes > cam > cam (for a 0 JP drg with no JSE) I'm taking apex down 50-70% with shining one. I don't know if that has anything to do with those ws criting.

3000TP Impulse will probably have like 50k avg at apex bats even with trusts buffs, so its not even close to 7-8 impulses to kill one. More like 3 probably.

Yea of course trish is the go to for scing. But this didnt really answer the questiion asked though.. Im more curious because I do play in alot of situations where everyone is wsing, from the war to the bards. Am more so curious about which tp set people think would compliment the weapon more a 4 hit or a 5 hit with more ma than the 4 hit.

After thinking on the subject a bit. I think a 4 hit build might be optimal for this weapon since it doesnt really get any bonuses like gungnir or rhongo do that make white damage significant. So more stp for more ws seems better.

Got the wrong idea Tex. For this weapon to be effect on DRG you need to WS @ 2~3000 TP otherwise Stardiver takes the cake.

In situations where you are able to let your jumps cool down between pulls - this weapon wrecks ***. Additionally if you are in escha and the fight will be less than 2 minutes, this weapon will wreck butts because of people popping wings, your jumps, etc. At 3000 TP, ID with this weapon is merciless, but you shouldn't be in the game of waiting for 3k TP on DRG.

Any sustained DPS situation would require a legitimate 2-hit build to out-perform Trishula. With a 3-hit and weaponskilling at 2k it came very close to beating Trish's total DPS, but still lost.

Why do you think Store TP would be more effective for building TP then Multi-Attack?

I still believe the best use of this weapon for DRG is 3k TP start burns, where you hit a 3k ID, then swap weapons.

Really just cuz its not pushing as much white damage as gungnir and also it just feels more reliable then the gungnir ma build. Although theres prob a better build for it then what i use for gungnir. I just stuck to that though. This is strictly drg though. What it feels is best after toying with it for a bit in ambu vd and stuff. Is nice when the niq ring procs on the 4 hit or the triple attack with the weapon. But i do agree that trish seems much better when the ja's arent up.
