How to maxiumize Aeolian Edge Dmg

#1GundambonePosted 8/11/2011 8:39:31 AM
What atmas do you use to get the most out of this WS?

Currently I have stout arm, Sea Daughter, and Razed Ruin and i barely pop 1k. Maybe its my dagger sux too because I'm still working on upgrading to Kila +2 but only on Dakini.

Brew! Duh!

But seriously, Aeolian Edge is a magic WS. The atma you list are all physical. RR will help a bit since it has a dex mod, but magic attack is going to be the biggest factor. I haven't played with it much personally, but skimming through the atma list quick, I would guess Gales, Ultimate, and Baying Moon would be your best bet (unless you by some off chance have Hell's Guardian).

Also, as far as I know, weapon won't really matter. I do about the same on RDM with Aeolian Edge as I do on DNC. DNC has an Lv90 Evasion Kila and RDM has some random level 50something dagger I grabbed from the AH.


Edit: Under the effect of a Brew, anyway.

I don't think any magic WSs really take your weapon DMG into account, do they?

Don't believe so. It would make sense that they wouldn't, but I haven't used enough of them to be absolutely sure. AE certainly doesn't, so I assume the rest would follow that trend.

After all these years you'd think I would know the small things...

I would assume it doesn't since Wildfire doesn't.

Some of the GKatana ones count partially in magic damage I think, but those are weird exceptions, not the norms. I don't think any other magic damage WS uses DMG at all, nor do the special ones like Spirits Within.

You forgot Atma of the Beyond! That's also a good one if you can't get Ultimate.

Because AE is wind based, Beyond has the same MAB as Baying Moon. I figured the extra attack from Baying Moon would be a better choice for THF. And I could only pick 3! :P
