A parse will NEVER discern a difference below 5% in any meaningful manner.

If you think the sim is faulty, write a better one and open source it for review. If you think the spreadsheet is better, provide an argument for why it's better. A parse is only useful if you're under the impression some of the currently accepted formulas are wrong and you have the knowledge to narrow down which. If that's the case, I'm sure people of every job would appreciate the currently understood damage formulas being improved.

Oh, I completely agree. But a parse could show capped accuracy. We could agree on capped attack from the buffs used and the buffs left unused. I'm really just extending an olive branch to Austar, inviting an honest result from a proper set-up of his sim.
If you look at where the name-calling all originates, I consider myself the nice guy here.

To explain since I have a few minutes. Someone used the N-word, that's what my comment was about. I'm not sure why we're pitting MNK against WAR in a MNK thread. I'd assume people getting tired of it is why the insults start flying.

I WANT people who know what they are talking about in this thread but the arguments get annoying for everyone, especially when someone just can't let one go.

On the N-word thing, I actually went easy because it was a fairly knowledgeable person who said it and while it wasn't a good thing to fling towards someone, I don't believe it was truly meant in a racist manner. Don't let that become a habit.

Additionally, I don't consider all that much to be permanent. If I remove someone from the thread, sometimes it's to give time to cool off, I'll let you back in in a bit.

NQ cost is like ~25m 5/5

HQ would vary wildly, in the 800m~ range

NQ set is no more than 30m combined for the 5 pieces, is 5 less TA, 10 less crit, 15 less subtle blow and 50 less M. Eva. The measurable DPS between them is not going to be a whole lot since the only important stats for damage are 5 TA/10 crit. The difference becomes even less when you realize you really only need the body for TP if you aren't going for the hybrid route. NQ Kendatsuba is still a massive cut above any other melee piece in the game in terms of magic evasion.

Ignore the autists who think you need 800m in gear to effectively gear MNK. They're just stirring up ***because they lack the ability to critically think.

The mistake in the label was noted in the update that changed H2H WS descriptions.
