Hi Guys


I just finished 5/5 STP merits and was looking to build 6 hit GKT and 5 hit Pole


1st thing I noticed was without Usu (which I dont have) these builds cost nominal haste... Is it worth it?


anyway playing around with what I have, I have come up with the following.


Would you be able to look at these with your infinate wizdom and see if I am doing these correct and/or what would be more viable.


So Sam GKT 6 hit TP on low EVA mobs (where I an use acc from buffs/food etc also)


http://www.ffxiah.com/item_sets.php?id=152382


now Sam GKT 6 hit on High EVA mobs


http://www.ffxiah.com/item_sets.php?id=152383


YGK WS set for both of above


http://www.ffxiah.com/item_sets.php?id=152384


Note on WS gear Shura Kabuto/Haidate seem to not drop ever >.<; will eventually get them



Ok now Polearm >.< this is where I am having most problems with costing a lot of Haste to produce.


Polearm TP set


http://www.ffxiah.com/item_sets.php?id=152385


Polearm WS set


http://www.ffxiah.com/item_sets.php?id=152388



Thanks for taking the time to look at these.


Do they work? would there be better options outside of the obvious Usu, Sea Torque im waiting for etc.


Finally is it necessary to have so much STP in the Polearm set? Could I loose a piece of Hachiman for haste? assuming I hit 1st hit on penta of course?


Super Edit I dont know how to linky the links >.< forgive me

Edit again woot getting good at this forum sheet :D

You have some really weird gear choices. I wouldn't use Ace's Helm at all, unless you're doing Greater Colibri.

For High EVA TP set, get rid of Askar hands and Hachiman feet (They're both useless) and use Hachiman hands and Fuma feet. You gain 1% Haste and a bit of Store TP (Not that the last part matters).

Drop Ace's Helm for a Wyvern Helm or +1 in your WS build.

Those are the major things I can see at the moment.

The Moogle expansion hat with STR+6 and WS ACC+15 isn't a bad choice for the penta build as well.

But yeah some of your choices are odd but it looks like it works, and at least you HAVE a polearm build.

It is for colibri cant merit GKT as used elsewhere hence Aces

Yea was thinking about askar for hachi and taking feet out for sarutobi in the higher EVA one, I was half asleep I think

If you're doing Colibri, you shouldn't need to worry about using GK there in the first place. Polearm actually tends to beat GK in most situations, except for HNMs with very high DEF or EVA.

Ditch Ace's for Walahra. Ace's is the last swap you make for acc. Contrary to what Enternius said you shouldn't use it at birds either, you lack the acc for a non-sushi set. Pizza should cover you when meat doesn't for goddamn near everything.

All TP sets: Aesir Mantle for capped acc and Cuchulain's if uncapped. You're on an x-hit job, the boost to WS frequency means a lot. Chiv -> PCC.

Both GKT TP sets: Bushi -> Wyvern if /DRG. Stay /WAR for Polearm.

http://www.ffxiah.com/item_sets.php?id=152383


Hachiman -> Dusk
Pole -> Rose
Iota -> Ecphoria (need to retain 6-hit)

http://www.ffxiah.com/item_sets.php?id=152384

AF+1 legs/head are an alternative to Shura, not like acc matters for YGK.

http://www.ffxiah.com/item_sets.php?id=152385


Engetsuto -> Tomoe
Pole -> Rose
Hachi feet -> Fumas

http://www.ffxiah.com/item_sets.php?id=152388


Chiv -> Shadow Gorget
Ace's -> Hissho Hachimaki
Okote -> AF+1 or Nkote if needed

Still need to land 3 hits of Penta but if you can't do that with food you probably shouldn't be using Polearm.

STR+6? STR+4 WSACC+15/AGI+4 WSDMG+2% yo. But yes, MKD hat would be a good addition to both your Polearm WS set and your GKT WS set. Might even let you swap back in Warwolf Belt for Penta situationally.

I might catch some flack on this one but I'm completely serious, so bear with me for a minute.

Use sushi with GKT.

Gekko's pDIF boost will render pizza's attack more or less useless on WS against nearly everything, and WS is the largest portion of your damage. Your damage during TP is reduced but if you need the acc (and you will if you're using GKT over Polearm) capping your hitrate during TP without sacrificing haste is the way to go. I don't advocate this as a general rule, but in situations like yours (no GKT merits) it can be an effective option.

No. Bad. STR4/AGI4/WSacc+15/WSdmg+2% is superior, stop this madness. Next step is more idiots making it into a TP helmet.

That helmet is also superior for YGK, so it's awesome for everything.

And yes, ditch Ace's when you can. Turban is just better too often, especially when that 7 acc is useless after capping your ACC.

lol i originally built that helmet as a wyvern+1 alternative before maat's. I had no idea you could even do the AGI/WS+2%damage.

Learn something new everyday i guess :o
