Hey guys, I've been reading these forums for quite some time in order to get to know as much as I could about the job ever since I decided I wanted to level it to 75, as I like to know my jobs inside out or at least as well as I possibly can.
So from what I've picked up I thought I knew pretty much what I was doing on SAM, but lately a few things have made me question that. I was of the opinion for example that YGK had a massive boost to ACC/ATT and that therefore I focused entirely on STR, and also therefore assumed that for the majority of mobs (barring very high defence ones such as gods) /WAR Berserk would do almost nothing for my weapon skills. As a result for most things I also assumed that the best damage for me would come from /DRG with wyvern earring for 25% haste.
Recently however I've got in a few debates with other SAMs about this. First of all an old friend who has a very decked out SAM (and also usually comes /DRG) told me that the best body piece for WS was not KO but Hauby +1 as he said that I was wrong about the ACC boost and he said Hauby was thus better for the ACC. As I write I'm about to do A Moogle Kupo d'Etat 10 and one SAM I'm doing it with disagreed with me about lots of things, not least he basically said the whole ACC/ATT boost thing was rubbish.
They also both mentioned tests by Rukenshin which I havent read but have heard a lot about.
Can anyone shed some light on this? Who is right?
