... Meat Usukane Polearm at near capped accuracy VS. Haste build Crab Sushi (You're not capping without, and *** Ace's Helm) Polearm at birds = Usu wins. People here stuck in the dark ages or what? For GKT, you don't wear full Usu.
I only said that because, to pull off a proper meat polearm build on colibri you need millions of gil. Plus, not everyone has full usu. Sure, Usu wins, but so what? let's be realistic here.

@ Tiger

ok with NQ dusk the difference is 2.5acc vs. 1% haste

Remember those Turban vs. Askar threads?
that was 3acc vs. 1% Haste

Which one were you advocating then?

Because 2 free heads vs 2 buyable items, one which is millions of gil, are the same thing.

Gil isn't up for debate, We're talking best use not most cost effective use.

Ace's is free ... Usu costs gil

Besides if we're talking full usu anything I'm sure the cost is our main concern.

If cost is a concern, you really shouldn't even be really debating it, no? The best is the best regardless of price.

Actually, I was comparing the two builds from the previous page. That build, but swapping haub+1 for usu body is the superior choice though, w/ aces. I'll concede, but w/ nq dusk gloves, it's really a side grade than anything. Ace's build should come up to about a .5% increase once you account for full usu's higher str and attack and apply it to the melee portion. I'd use it if I had it, for birds anyway, but yea, Not worth wasting points on ace's, imo.

So basically what it comes down to yet again is:

That was the other thing I was thinking about when I set up to 2 gear sets but seeing as I don't have usu body atm I left it out.

@ Tiger

Usu gets +4str and +4 attack over the proper ace's build

With Tomoe you need 84 str to cap fstr on birds

Both sets achieve that cap if you have racial str higher than an unmerited mithra so Usu's +4str is wasted.

Then it comes down to +4 attack and 2.5acc vs. 1% haste

The +4 attack is only good during TP phase so any improvement you'd get from that would be x .30

You don't know how fstr works. 84 str wouldn't cap fstr on a thf's dagger, yet alone a polearm.

And as I've said, ace's usu body build is better, just very very slightly.

Tomoe dmg 86 therefore rank 9 weapon.

Upper fstr cap value at: dSTR = (14 + weapon rank x2) x2= 64

dstr= your str - mob vit

Greater colibri vit 67.

67+64 = 84!?! Are they teaching math differently now or something?

I'm guessing 80-90 is a rank 9 and 90-100 is rank 10 etc etc ya?
