Yeah, insurgency is extremely good. I'd be surprised if it got touched at all. Knowing how good liberator at r15 is, I'm not gonna get my hopes up.

Since the moment SE released the screenie of a Scythe-wielding DRK and a casting PLD for the update teaser, the only thing I could think of was that SE sometimes gets very trapped by the "lore" aspect of their own game.

Its historically appropriate in their line of games that a DRK uses Scythe as their main weapon choice.

but also we got 2 GS's from Zeid so....GS is the superior lore weapon in XI :P

I'm guessing they made a custom 4.0 cap for scythe.

That's what my testing is showing.

that's not how multiplication works, it's a 6.33% increase if you're capping attack with a scythe.

I am doing almost EXACTLY 10% more dmg with spiral hell. went from 43.5kish to 48kish.

Same gear same mob same same TP values. it is almost exactly 10% at 1k 2k and 3k.

Maybe they buffed different WS pdif?

4.2 / 3.95 = 1.06329
(4.2 * 2) / (3.95 * 2) = 1.06329

((366 * 1.375) * 4.2 * 2) / ((366 * 1.375) * 3.95 * 2) = 1.06329

no other variable changed besides the cap, which is a multiplier. and since every variable is the same, it'll always come out to 6.33%

yes, everything else I can just assume best case but I need STR DEX and INT for WSC purposes and WSD since I don't know what your augments are.

A single hit at 3K TP pre-update would be a range of 42238 to 44350, post update would be 44914 to 47158. 44914 / 42238 = 1.633, 47158 / 44350 = 1.633

base D = 366
fstr = 48
wsc = 294
wsd = 59

floor((366 + 48 + 294) * 4.75) = 3363

floor((3363 * 3.95)) = 13283
floor(13283 * 1.05) = 13947

floor(13283 * (1 + 59 / 100)) = 21119, *2 = 42238
floor(13947 * (1 + 59 / 100)) = 22175, *2 = 44350


floor((3363 * 3.95)) = 14124
floor(13283 * 1.05) = 14830

floor(13283 * (1 + 59 / 100)) = 22457, *2 = 44914
floor(13947 * (1 + 59 / 100)) = 23579, *2 = 47158

mobs used were rabbits outside of ronfare and dmg had almost no variance. and i am doing over 48k with the same set i told you on. Before it was extremely consistent at 43.5k cant remember exact number but in the 43.5 and maybe 17 more dmg.

there is always variance, there is a random multiplier between 1 and 1.05 regardless of your attack.

then you didn't tell me your stats right or are using gorget/waist, which you don't have in your ah set

The bolded part have wrong numbers (doesnt change results, just mistyped copy pasting?)

yeah i was just copy pasting because i'm lazy.

either way, guy is just eyeballing or doesn't want to admit he's wrong.

a 17 damage range at 43K damage is impossible, and not going below 48K is also impossible, at least with the stats he gave.

I wouldnt call new curaga stance for PLD a slap in the face. Banishga also seems useful for taging multiply mobs when you are not /blu.

Also Scythe buff is awesomely balanced for me. Sure they havent fixed some lacking JAs, but it give them room for future and DRK is in very good place anyway.
