    I was wondering what kinda weapons people are carrying? I usually carry 2. I carry a Radiant Scimitar with HML, HSL, HLA, SSI, and DI. I use that as my neutral/multi purpose weapon. Its fast and has WW so I can use it pretty much anywhere. Weapon 2 is a Daisho with HML, HSL, SSI, Slayer, and DI. I use this on the boss type critter. Combine Feint with easily being able to swing it at cap makes it very usable. Whats everyone else using?

    I'm using leaf blades for two reasons. First, feint cuts PvM damage in half for 4-5 seconds. Second, with 180 stamina, I don't need ssi, which allows me to have hla on all of my weapons.

    My standard has: di, hml, hsl, hla, and hf. Additionally, I carry a variety of slayers with: slayer, di, hml, hsl, and hla. For the purpose of whirlwind, I carry kama with: di, hml, hsl, hla, and hit cold area.

    I use leafblades like syrus, but I prefer hll instead of hla and lightning insted of fireball :)

    hll: statistically (by trying against the stygian dragon), is better leech more life than eventually lower his hit chance
    lightning: because do a little more damage than fireball (but depends on who is the enemy)

    Favorite = leafblade: HML, HSL, SSI, HLA, DI

    I need the SSI because I don't have all those fancy SSI items on my sampire (nor will I).

    I also have started a slayer-weapon collection which match the above but with slayer in place of HLA.

    A hatchet!

    It will be a hammer pick once I can design a suit to get me to 55 ssi, 180 stam, and not miss out on other mods.

    im runnin 186 sta and a turqoise ssi ring. can add the 5ssi cloak if i want but i'd lose 5 dci.

    usually use daishos or double axes

    the double axes seem to be my slayer weaps.
    i imbue 30 ssi, 55 hml, 44 hsl, super slayer, 38 di
    just do mad damage between double strike, ls. rarely even use whirlwind. usually just momentum strike unless there's a ton of monsters.

    the daishos are for big single target bosses where i use eoo and perfection.
    dont need slayer on them, so far i run 60 hml, 44 hsl, 45 di, hla, and usually some last unwanted mod im stuck with unless I want to burn a billion dc runic hammers to get the perfect elemental weapon

    i also have a bokuto with hld, hml, hsl, di, hit lightning. and a nice 50 poison/fire ornate i can corpse skin, omen, and make someones life hell with a crushing blow if i really want to be mean

    They need to let us make Turquoise Bracelets with the 5 SSI ;). Perhaps with another Gem though.

    you can go with jade armband, but stats are kinda crappy. plus its a replica so it'll get smashed fast on a melee toon. wonder if theres any prepatch imbued ones out there

    I have one suit designed but it ends with 40 dci and only 95 DI, and that is when using jade armband/tinker legs.

    If I have 100% DI on my suit would it be better to Imbu non-gm weapons that way I can get 5 mods on it? A non-gm weapon has 450 weight while a GM weapon has 500 but 80 of that is taken up by 40% DI, so if I drop that down to say 1. I'll have 498 weight left but only 4 properties. Is that correct?

    Do you have 180 stamina 45 dci, and enough hci, lmc, mr? It might be better to remove lower the di on your suit in favor of other mods. Are you wearing stormgrip or gauntlets of nobility, per chance? If so, perhaps a nice imbued pair with 8 si, lmc and mr would help your suit overall.

    Nice suit. Sheesh. Well, I dunno in that case.

    if you're not losin anything and have 100 di on the suit, you can put HLA on every one of your weaps...

    And when you roll with a fast 2.75 weapon you dont need SSI imbued so that gives you a 2nd imbuable slot

    you got HLD on your suit?

    Can you post a pic of your suite please?

    I thought my suite was maxed to the bollox but i couldnt find the last 5 DCI but it seems you have, even with the 10% SSI?

    Thanks

    My wepon arsnel concists of radiant's, ornates, double axes and daisho's. I have one of each elemental with DI/SSI/SL/ML/HLA and one of each elemental with DI/SL/ML/HLA and either SSI or slayer.

    67 67 65 70 65, 22 dex, 40 stam, 40 mana, 100 di, 45 hci, 33 dci, 20 lmc, and 10 ssi. I think thats all.

    This suit is on my archer/sampire in training. Once I can afford the M$S glasses I will swap that for the hunters that Im wearing now.

    I have my own. It's pretty quick to train. When I trained it, it took around 10 hours and 10-15 million in ingredients.

    Yes, making a mule will be the best thing you ever did for your sampire. With all of the possible ways to make weapons tailored to a specific foe, it increases your max possible effectiveness imensely. And armor possibilities too. My mule always starts with mining, then goes 120 smith, then 120 imbuing. Finally I add tailoring. I'd add carpentry, but I have that on a char on another account. Tinkering is also a good option if you want to make base jewelry pieces to imbue.

    In fact, I've gotten so used to having an artficer that I'm building 2 more on cross shards. Got the second to 117 so far and collected the resources to start the third.

    woah how do you train it THAT fast? ive been at it for about 3 hours (started 72.8 today) and am at 76.9. I cant imagine legendary or GM in one day. How do you even do it that fast? Blacksmithing too. Crafting skills are the worst for me to train..

    okay maybe not 3 hours, maybe about 1.5

    Just look around Stratics for skill training guides: Craftsmans' Data Chest - Stratics Forums.

    Blacksmith was much slower for me than imbuing. Tailoring was a bit better. With GM arms lore, 120 blacksmith, 120 tailoring, and 120 imbuing, you've got a dream mule to support your warrior characters.

    i have maxxed out crafting skills on a different account. imbuing on my main account tho... so basically ill just have one character solely dedicatied to imbuing, unless i decide to make him an imbuing mystic mage

    Just curious if someone could give examples of what to imbue for specific bosses. Or do you just go with the standard di, ssi, hml, hsl, hla? And curious is HLL on a boss specific weapon redundant?

    The weapon to choose depends on the template you're running, your stats/suit, and the boss that you're fighting.

    You need to be more specific with your question.

    ok so, if i'm running max di on suit is di on my wep is useless? I dont have much extra ssi on jewls or robe so I need to keep that despite 172 sta? I guess I am looking for examples of what say you would use vs dread or para ballys, or navrey or whatever? just trying to see wep mods I might've overlooked before i start wasting imbue regs...

    Mods on my wepons are all the standard SSI/DI/HLA/ML/SL the only thing that changes is the type of wepon i use, e.g. pally balron or the renound wyvern its an elemental daisho for feint, for medusa/dread/proxy its a elemental ornate axe for multiple mobs its a double axe for wirlwind etc

    I rarely use slayer on wepons unless there quick kills then ill swap the HLA for slayer as its usually dead before perfection hits max so does more damage.
