question Staff after awakening?

6 posts in this topic

Posted

Is having a good staff still important once you're awakened?
I mean once awakened I find myself hardly even using my non-awaken skills at all...maybe an occasional Mana drain or one of my 2 heal abilities.
The staff doesn't have any effect on awaken-abilities, does it?

Your staff AP still affects your awakened skills damage, around 40/50% from staff (just staff AP, excluding basic amount at +0), and you get full accuracy and other stats from it, since awakened weapon doesn't have it.

meteor, earthquake and MMA are still VERY viable at lvl 60.  And ofcourse the buffs are still used.

It's 30/43% of staff AP (depending on whether you consider awakening AP or universal AP to be "100%"), and base +0 AP is included (see here).

But like Azalel said, awakening weapons have 0 Acc of their own, so you need a highly-enhanced mainhand for that, considering mainhands are by far the biggest source of Acc that we have (it's like 50+ Acc on a TRI Kzarka, compare that to the 5-10 Acc each from accessories/Bheg's).

However, that doesn't necessarily mean that you need the same staff as before; species damage is also 100% applied unlike AP (though it's only worth ~80% as much as AP for damage), so for example going with a Yuria for PvP/human PvE can be very effective.

human damage is counting 0.9 of an AP and grands about 20 acc on TRI.

0.83, specifically, but that's still way more than 0.3. Yuria also has waaay more than 20 Acc at TRI, like for real, you think Yuria has 30+ less Acc than Kzarka? Yes, it's noticeably less accurate, but it's not that drastic. Kzarka>Liverto is only ~5 Acc, and Liverto>Yuria is another ~10 if it hasn't changed since I last tested it a couple months ago.
