Curious the opinion of the community vs. any mathematical data as to which Aeonics are most impactful?

Everyone knows that Khatvanga is the best aeonic. Don't consider any other.

The 2-handed weaponskills are all the ones that get "Damage varies with TP"

Aeonic ws's have stp and 500 tp bonus.

probably the 2 handers.

In no particular order:

Lionheart
Marsyas
Chango
Fomalhaut
Trishula

any list that doesn't include Chango is irrelevant

I'd say:

Marsyas (Honor March)
Doji (Makes SAM broken again)
Fomalhaut (Fun to play with)
Lionheart (RUN DD ftw!)
Chango (R15 is no joke)

My two cents!

It's still going to depend on the situation, but you can't go wrong with those 5. All extremely good.

The best Aeonic(s) are the ones you're going to use. lists are meaningless

No choice worth making is based on what weaponz are gud, if you want a list, ask top 5 jobs, then make those aeonics.

Top job thread drama is one of my favs.

In terms of how 'game changing' it is for the job:
Rng [Gun] (OP) > Drg (Can SC MUCH easier) > Run (Can DD) > Cor (Can physical WS) > Drk (Can SC) > Sam (Apex god) > War (Can SC), Thf (Easier to DD) > etc

Edit* "Can SC" = Can SC for Content instead of just WS spam.

R15 Masamune would like a word with all the Doji comments.

GA, Horn, GS, Gun, PA are the winners.

Pretty sure the question was top 5 aeonics, not top 5 weapons in the game.

Marsyas and Lionheart are job-changing weapons for 2 top-tier jobs. You have to put those up there. Trishula isn't game-altering but it's a Big Deal for dragoon.

I can't name 2 others. I mean Doji? With R15 Masa now a thing? Doji seems relegated to situational use. Fomalhaut is a good gun but a bit situational too, no? Heishi is great but ninja is a bit niche. I don't know anything about Chango, couldn't speak to that one.

#1 Marsyas (with the caveat of also needing Relic and Empyrean instruments)
#2 Chango: one of the best DD in the game, should be the best weapon WAR has in terms of both SC and pure WS spam at r15
#3 Dojikiri Yasutsuna: has an argument for the best SAM weapon, and one of the top DD in the game.
#4 Lionheart: game changer damage wise for RUN, but can't really be higher since for most relevant content you should probably be using Epeolatry.
#5 Fomalhaut: Great weapon, however, in most situations it is outclassed by Death Penalty and Gastraphetes respectively.

It’s still your best last stand weapon for ranger and COR. If you made DP/Gat you would still want Foma.

Masamune and Doji serve the same purpose Masamune is just superior.

Horn - nothing like a 2 for 1 deal for brd
Trisula - probably the best weapon for Drg
Chango - same for War
Fomalhaut - this is probably the biggest game changer for both Rng and Cor. If you can only select one ultimate weapon, this is probably your best choice not because it is strong but because it's a well rounded weapon for both jobs.

5th one is iffy. Doji looks good but you only use it for SC purposes and Masa might just work as well. Lionheart seems okay but a Drg would probably do better than DD Run.

I'm... not sure that this is true? Assuming a fully-buffed melee zerg? Usually when I've seen RUN fully-buffed they are doing a hybrid-tanking role rather than full dps, and Reso with Lionheart pumps out huge numbers, so I honestly don't know.
