Combos Spoiler 2mp Decoy Combo Evasion -> Save(Decoy Shot) -> Smite(finale) Purpose: Provide Evasion Buff to everyone and send out decoy for MP regen. 2mp Buff Up Combo + optional Dmg Kairiki Ranshin -> Save(War Cry) -> Consecutive(Meikyo Shisui) -> Smite(Assassin Stab) -> Smite(Finale) Purpose: Provides War Cry Buff, Kairiki Ranshin buff, and triggers Sicarius buff for DT spam. With these buffs and Brave Aura, I can raise my HB attack from ~4.3K to ~5K ATK. Additionally, Assassin stab does pretty good damage by itself. The interesting part of this combo is, you do not have to assassin stab. If you are > 4m away from the boss you can skip the assassin stab and go into another combo like the 1mp DT combo trick or 5mp DT spam. 1mp DT Combo Reflex -> Save(War Cry) -> consecutive(Meikyo Shisui) -> consecutive(impact) -> Smite(DT) -> Smite(Finale) Notes: I put Meikyo Shisui in the middle because of the extremely quick animation and adding another skill for padding after save. Honestly, if you want to burn continuously you can put Kairiki Ranshin instead. I generally only do this if I trust the tank and I am extremely comfortable with the boss fight. 5mp DT Combo Impact -> smite(DT) -> Smite (Finale) Notes: Your main dps skill, you this combo when your near max mana to produce the most damage. Max Mana = wasted DPS. Well everyone this is my current Halberd skill distribution that I am currently messing around with. The goal of this build is to active as many buffs as you can to do High DT damage. Even though DT does not need the physical armor penetration provided by Sicarius, the added +100 atk power seems quite interesting. I do not know if 15 skill points (minimum) are worth for this trade, but I guess I will find out. I also noticed that the DT animation seems to put a character closer to the boss than that of the HB auto attack range. So close in fact, that on some bosses I have experienced getting hit on front forward AOE attacks when attacking directly from behind. An example of this is the Patissia cake animation. Literally have to wait for the entire animation to disappear before I can dt, but I can still auto attack with no problems. So I may, swap out DT for Assassin Stab in certain situations.
