Is Valorous Mask with WSD+3% really better than Flamma+2 head?

Depends on the WS but if you are referring to Fudo then Valorous can gain more STR, it can actually have ATK, and multi-hit is inferior to WSD on single hit WS like Fudo.

Hopefully, that's correct information for you.

Yes, as long as it also has moderate additional STR augment (and any atk/acc you can get is obviously helpful if uncapped). Even something like a Valor head with only WSD+3% STR+5~8 augs should be roughly a sidegrade to Flamma+2 (assuming capped accuracy).

If you don't have a Valorous with a decent Acc augment, Flamma+2 is a decent high acc WS alternative. Depending on buffs, Wakido+3 and Rao B can be pretty good head options too.

That makes sense. My choice for Despair Helm and Hizamaru body was the sacrifice of 2-3 STR for 20-ish Attack per piece. Is it just no-buffed situations where Despair and Hizamaru+2 might beat the Flamma head/body/ring?

Yeah, pretty much. And even with minimal buffs, Flamma+2 body is still going to be a better choice over Hiza+2 if you're using ring for set bonus. Assuming no set bonus, Hiza+2 does perform pretty well in seriously underbuffed situations and probably beats Flamma there (though Rao is still likely a better call in that scenario).

I will go for 5% WSD with Taupe stones and see how I get on.

before you waste stones, WSD 5 can only come from fern

Oh. I had 220 Taupe spare and only got 4% once in 220 stones anyway so it is fine for now. Not going to buy Fern to try for 5% any time soon.

the zanhasso is generally better even if you didn’t need store tp and overflowing on samurai is a boost in most simulations i’ve ran for non doji weapons. i need to still analyze with crystal blessing and savagery warcry though.

If this is the case, should I switch my 10 DA cape to 10 STP on the TP set I posted?

I'm too lazy to add NQ gear to my sim, but you can use the link above and add to sam_equip.txt

It isn't the prettiest way to do it, but you can see how other gear is written in the txt to do it.

you can't (yet). It just uses Fudo unless it needs to maintain AM3 in the case of Koga or Masa.

hello I was wondering if anyone knew how much STP a non master sam would need to have gear wise for a 4 hit build with a 450 delay GK. also if anyone knows the proc rate on a norifusa +1

i don't remember stp values off the top of my head, but the spread on weapon should be 40 / 40 / 20.

You need to know your TP return from your current "Fudo Set" to calculate how much STP you need in your TP set for 4 HIT.

Go outside Mhaura "meditate" make a macro of [/ws "tach:fudo" <t>] and try it out on a mob(without engaging) and see how much TP you got back.
[1000-(TP return)]/3= will give you the amount of TP you need per hit.
lets say you got 250 TP back from Fudo.. You will then need (1000-250)/3=250 TP per hit.

play around with your TP set until you reach that number and only then you are at 4HIT exactly.
Make your TP set, target a mob that dies in one hit and see your gained TP, Don't equip anything that gives regain unless you knew how many ticks and subtract it right away.

Thats the most basic way to test out your X-Hit build, especially when you're not capped on JP, but Im sure there are calculators out there that can do this for you.

Edit: If memory serves me I think between 65-70 STP in gear/weapons for that to happen (0-449 JP). yet again it really depends on your TP return from Fudo set.

Hey guys, looking to get back into the game and was wondering if Tsurumaru still stacks up well against other GKs in the game? I know REAM is a clear-cut better, but do any other GKs really top it in most situations?

Based on recent tests with Zanhasso: NQ Ryou Feet, Flamma+2, Wakido+3?

I know Ryou+1 seem to win simulation but I cannot obtain those on my server. Would NQ still win since you're only losing 1 zanshin and 1 OAT?

Still just getting into SAM and learning the ropes... What augment path for Ryou Sune-Ate +1? I assume the STP path, even though, apart from offering STP, it is rather gross... Thank you in advance for the replies!

I went path A and use them in my two lowest acc sets.

Ideally you would want two of them unless you have Kenda+1 feet or a crazy dark matter valorous feet.

Is the OP still the best for Fudo sets? I am getting back into SAM after just coming back to the game not long ago and with all of the augmented gear and stuff, it's hard to know where to begin.

My arch-nemesis Oseem will not give me +str on Valor helm. Is Acc and WSD +4% still inferior to Flamma +2? Wasn’t sure if the 1% difference from poster above made a significant difference.

Forgot to mention for the moment the helm is my only +2 item till I finish feet and body (hopefully) next month, so will be losing out on even more str from dropping flamma bonus during ws.

Utu is the BiS grip for any 2h at this time. Bloodrain would be the 2nd option and nice for STP build but since you can't swap without losing TP it loses its value compared to Utu. Rose is outdated.
