    Cursed vs normal GSoA

    Post by IceIfrit666 on Mon Jul 23, 2012 9:15 pm

    I was just messing around on the DrkS calculator and the Cursed GSoA might actually be better than the normal one.
    Cursed:
    -lower stat requirement
    -Raw damage only
    -Fth and Int not needed for damage

    Normal:
    -Higher stat requirement
    -Split damage(Raw and Magic)
    -Fth and Int needed for magic damage

    (Minimum int and fth for each)
    At 40 str and dex, the Cursed does 539 of raw.
    At 40 str and dex, the Normal does 348 of raw and 213 of magic.(561 total)

    The damage from the normal one has to go through two defenses(normal and magic). The Cursed needs to go through normal defense only, usually dealing more damage per hit.

    TL;DR Cursed GSoA is better for PvP builds.

    Also did anyone know about this already?

    EDIT:After two comments, I now know that GLGS>MSGS>CGSoA>GSoA.
    Man Serpent is at the top if you are buffing.

    40 dex and str, GLGS is worse by 2 damage and doesn't need a int and fth requirement, making it even better than the Curse GSoA.
    Great, thanks for making my entire topic pointless. >:[

    true for pve and cursed for pvp. they both are ok at best for pvp and are not worth it but the only thing they got going for it its the surprisingly good reach. even with the reach its still not worth all those points that couldve been put somewhere more useful. youre better off going with the msgs.

    As a FH I have levels to spare so i often invade with the CGSoA. I'm well on my way to 40/40/40/40 though, so I think the holy version might be more powerful despite split damage. I think the total is 658 or something.
