But, which one?
Not a mage one, obviously. Square-Enix isn't capable of outdoing the elemental staves and I don't melee shit as a mage when I could be doing it as a Black Belt Monk instead. I could do one for Monk and Puppetmaster as Squeenix was nice enough (or too lazy, take your pick) to put both jobs on the H2H weapons. Or I could go with Ninja. There's several interesting Katanas to upgrade.
The H2H Option
For Hand-to-Hand there's several flavors of weapons. There's the Pet:Something ones. Obviously, this is only useful for PUP. MNK/BST isn't a popular job combo for good reason. There's the DMG+~18 with an Added Effect:Something+10. And then there's the decent DMG rating Occasionally Attacks Twice knuckles. Faith Baghs without needing Virtue Stones and better WS pretty much.
Some pics courtesy of the Wiki:Unfortunately, all three have Quests that suck ass. Kill a mob during weather that is rare where you can find them, kill a particularly annoying/dangerous type of mob, or get some drops from Tier III Voidwalker NMs. Not fun. Which is why I'm leaning towards...
The Katana Option
There's a couple nice Katanas. Notably, a high base DMG Occ. Atks. Twice one. Here's the final stats on the ones I like:
DMG:21 Delay:242 Occasionally Attacks TwiceI think offhanding the first and mainhanding the second would be pretty nice. The first has grindy Quests, but they're doable. The second has lots of the weather kills bullshit.
DMG:36 Delay:201 DEX+4 ACC+8
The multi-hit Katana is really tempting. Combined with Innin NIN might do some respectable damage. How useful that'll actually be, I'm not sure though. Thoughts?
