I preferred using Decimating bullets on anything meaningful if divine were out of stock. Saved Eminent for CP parties where ranged attack/acc were less of a concern.

Decimating bullets can be purchased at the curio moogle. 18 less DMG than Eminent, but 10 racc and 5 ratk. Not sure how the math works out.

Let me clarify, I was using Decimating on anything where I was ranged attacking for TP and/or using Last Stand. For Leaden Spam or melee, I just used Eminent.

Glancing at spread sheet, I get A+ambu dagger slightly higher then B+ambu dagger for WF+melee but margin is within like 20dps on spreadsheet. A is going to be more consistent on xhit shooting depending on cor roll and pull ahead on melee if getting attack buffs. B generates a bunch of TP overflow thats useless for WF.

Question: How acc low are you guys willing to go in savageblade sets? Pulled 13str/7%wsdmg legs from dm augs, but savage set already feels pretty sketch with +2 neck and af3 body.

Short answer: as low as I can.

Just keep a lowest acc set for both melee and WS, and use them when you can.

My lowest acc TP set has around 980 acc. 2nd lowest is about 1020-1030, 3rd lowest is about 1080-1100, then 2 more tier until 1280ish.

I find every opportunity to lower my melee acc as much as possible. In ambu I like to make my brd SV whenever it's up, then WC to reset it whenever it's up. I use RDM as main healer whenever I can so I can push acc lower for more dps. I only ever swap to higher acc sets when SV/distract 3 aren't available.

If extra buff isn't available I generally keep it at 1050-1100ish in ambu.

Is it in lowest acc set or max? In dyna wave 3(where melee wf is used) I had to TP in very high acc sets with low MA. Not sure if the result applies.

was just a quick look with w/e ideal tp set is and normal WF gear. If you have a specific tp set you want me to check, I can take a look later.

Bit off topic but does anyone know if the sword in the top picture in the guide that the Elvaan is holding is actually in the game?
