Dang... doing good.

@ Popi ... If you think Heavy weapons are slow progress or hard on Bufcore, I hope you notice the difference using 1 h weapons with the same mods, or equivalent EE etc. DON'T mind me... I just love heavies, and I have a smooth run with iZZi my HC bufcore toon... mind you, I have found a lot of crap Heavy weapons to use.

@ Killer_Strike ... nice items

Hmm, I think i should get back to Buf, still have the self found gear... but atm... over tired, hard day working on a farm cleaning up fencelines, scrub and slashing tall grass n thistles etc. Now... a few drinks and sleep afterwards.

Goodluck all... eventually I will get back to Buffing.

Right now I play daggers and axes only.

I would play most probably heavies but you need 3 sets because samurai do not use spears or battleaxe. Like he does dagger ...

Therefore u need 3 set of items. I will keep battleaxes and spears if I find them but wont play them. Maybe later if samurai gets change that he can use spear as well.

Regards, Popi

1/2 mqs. On to sammy. Am super lucky. Have kept all my swords and have pretty much every tier sword (plain of course) with a few lower levels with small amounts of ee. I have plain heavy armors on every tier but 55, with a 74 ee 20 chain. And I found a 31 str lvl 25 charm and a 22str/33int lvl 30 charm. Probably going to try the str/int to see if survivability is better.

My beauty right for sammy is my tier III 5x dagger.

All gear is kept on my buffhckeepers char except for my setup that I keep in my vault.

Tips to anyone trying this out, go with power strike and retribution as skills. Anything else is pointless. You will need the boost in damage for eps/wells and even regular mobs very very often.

Agreed, those 2 skills only.

Iz, I love heavies more than normal weapons, and they are stronger as 1 handers as dmg is exactly doubled, speed is not 2 times slower but only 1.8 ... but as I said, samurai should wield spears.

Else one handers and heavies are not balanced.

Hmm, I understand part of this, as for balance... every 1h weapon AVG dmg is the same for the Tier they are, this is also the same for all charms... yes heavies are Dble dmg... but all of them have the same AVG per tier as well... thus, they are all balanced... only difference is... 1 sec vs 1.8 sec delay... so, you either like CONSISTENCY or RANDOMNESS.

Me, I am Random, thus Randomness is fine by me... :lol:

Guys, question regarding Bufcore (and maybe overall question as well) ...

I will be lvling transmuting ... is it worthy to lvl up also suff and glyphing? And fishing?

Somehow I feel if I would lvl all those I wont have time to slash, on other hand all those are helpful in future (though muting most) ...

Your opinion?
