    Hey there!

    I always hear people saying Staff-Fu>Sword-Fu, which I cannot really agree with.

    If you do full str rest dex for the Sword-Fu that should easily surpass the Staff-Fu in terms of damage right? You'd get a higher attack stat, and for the damage boost you could still use Impact or even Javelin as a Sword-Fu.

    Now, am I wrong? Or are those people's claims wrong?

    The good thing about staff fu is you can put stat on Vit without sacrificing too much damage.

    It's because I ran some calculations on a stat calculator and I got higher atk for the Sword-Fu.. perhaps I did a mistake. Will run them again :)

    If u go str>dex, sword fu will hv more atk, because 1H gets their atk from str and dex. Meanwhile, staff fu gets his atk from str and int.

    In the end, there won't be any difference between stat choices. Atk from stat are the same, 4 (str +2, dex +2 for 1H) (str +3, int +1 for staff).

    People generally consider staff fu to be stronger simply because staff has higher base atk. BUT, 1H hv more stability, and by putting points in dex, u lower the chance of grazing.

    My main is a brawler. I tried sword fu before just to have a feel of being a jerk in the party to ruin proration. Lol. Then I transformed to a staff fu which is obviously stronger. Eventually I deleted staff fu when I found out that it's inferior to my brawler.

    That put staff fu and sword fu str dex on equal footing. Use storm to be a storm kicker.

    Staff fu > Sword fu in terms of burst damage. I would agree that str dex sword fu can catch up but wouldn't be that easy.

    True. You mean proration right?

    ^_^

    Inferior in what aspect? Damage wise Brawler Main shouldn't be able to surpass the "-Fu" builds, as Brawler gets a lower atk boost, so how do you mean that?

    Pointless debate I would say. No one here is wrong.
    If you like sword fu keep using it why does it matter to you if people say staff fu is better? It depends on the player. A class is never "bad" or a "proration destroyer" its the player that decides to spam. Even staff fu can destroy proration if they want.

    About dps/damage personally I dont think theres any difference between the damage output between the two. Damage comes from expensive equipment in this game not so much from class/skills.

    I based it on the overall ability to kill a high difficulty boss faster. ^_^
