Jade hora are 'garbage'.
Despite the fact the only way to get jadeite is from HQing nephrite craft into jadeite,
this weapon is a 'tank' weapon. The crit chance is up way higher than peiste sure, but accuracy is 6 lower, making it terrible for soloing.
If you're going to tank a NM as a pug, use this. For anything else, finding the mat for repairs is just a waste of your time.
False. I use Jade Hora regularly on NM runs and am constantly pulling/keeping hate. Take the extra crit rate, supplement accuracy loss with accuracy food. EAT YOUR FOOD
. Nobody does this, and as I recall in FFXI if you didn't eat, then you were gimp. Owning these and using them does require that you find the repair mat, and it's not going to be cheap. Neither is Stuffed Cabbage.
Best advice I can give is to get THM CON GLA LNC MRD ARC up to at least 20. The extra abilities you can utilize are astoundingly helpful in any situation. The combination of Light Strike, Featherfoot, Second Wind II(PGL) and Foresight(MRD) make you a very good tank - Something you might want to bear in mind when you stack Raging Strike, Bloodbath, Ferocity, Discerning Eye and Blindside against an NM and subsequently land Simian Thrash. He's not going to like you very much after that 135 spike damage.
My stats, (w/ STR/VIT/DEX+5 traits & gear), are: DEX 164; STR 126; VIT 125.
