If anyone else can test it correctly please let me know what I'm doing wrong and let me know your results

    It's also affected by INT Magic Attack Bonus and Light Affinity.

    Almost all of the Epic Wildfire numbers i see are using Epic Atmas to enhance it. Atma of the Lion(? I think thats Fire:Major), etc. Ultimate, etc. Which produces great numbers. However I dunno if it hurts their DPS as much as it would hurt a BSTs or WARs, cause of the relatively small damage from their TP phase and large in WS phase.

    If you geared your Atmas towards pure MAB, You'd likely get higher numbers, But your TP-Phase would suffer greatly, Which is the flaw with magical weaponskills (In Abyssea anyway, Not outside as there is no Atma outside). Cloudsplitter is basically "Primal Rend +1".

    If you ever get a Farsha, Inside Abyssea you're likely better off knowing the WS damage is going to be crap, and gearing toward your normal DD ways (RR/VV/GH/Apoc/Etc), and using Cloudsplitter to activate Aftermath, and continue using Rampage.

    Though, I'm wiling to humor the Idea it might be a glitch, But something tells me its not

    In the context of what we are discussing here, Sea Gorgets are a poor gear choice.

    Atma of the Lion(? I think thats Fire:Major)
    Lion is lightning, Smoldering sky is fire.

    Back on topic, it does kind of suck that the Axe WS is so poor. People are right though, it can be boosted substantially with Atmas, Meds and /Rdm (why do people use and talk about /blm when /rdm gets the same MAB boost by the way?). Realistically, there are probably situations where Cloudsplitter is the right choice, depending on what you're fighting. We're just not in a position to regularly boost up our MAB to take full advantage of it like COR for example.

    Also, for the sake of it. Here's a pretty complete build for CloudSplitter:
    Ugly Pendant
    Twilight Mail
    Twilight Helm
    Flame Sachet
    Suzaku's Sune-ate
    Fortis Mantle
    Aqua Ring
    Aqua Ring
    Novio Earring
    Hecate's Earring
    Heafoc Mitts
    Teutates subligar

    I'd be lying if i said that it isn't wishful thinking. But finding out i wasted all that time on a ws that's worthless without a brew kinds hurts my FFXI pride. Even though its most likely not a glitch i would happily welcome any adjustments that would make this ws useful. At this point i wish i would have made the bow, or even the culb <_<.

    I was well aware that it wasn't going to be the greatest WS before I started making the Empy. I'm surprised other people haven't done this kind of research. Waste of time though? What is this game if not a massive waste of time? The thing is, it's still one of the best DD axes in the game at the moment and BST has an exceptional WS for Abyssea already in Rampage.

    Having said all that, it would be nice if the fTP on Cloudsplitter could be boosted at least

    Because Wizard's Roll gets a bonus from BLM or /BLM being in your party.

    IF there where any forums or sits that said anything about Cloudsplitter being < or = primal rend i would have made the bow and then got a charmers merlin. or maybe i didn't look in the right place for that info. Inside or outside of abyssea cloud will never compare to rampage.
