    Cloudsplitter

    Anyone that has access to this weapon skill can tell you that it is very weak. Its hard for me to believe that this Ws was intended to be this underwhelming. Its not very befitting of an empyrean weapon. I think there may be something wrong with it.

    It may be a calculating error, but you have to also remember one thing. Just because it's a WS off of a new endgame weapon, doesn't elate automaticaly to high damage.

    its just my opinion and concern. I just think the reward is worth the effort(unlike with ALL the other empyrean weapons) and there could be something wrong with it.

    Cloudsplitter is a magic WS and you're wondering why it sucks?

    most likely due to not exploiting the mods on it. I used to think Cataclysm was kinda meh until an LS mate turned me onto the affinity bonus it gets from my Pluto's staff. It seemed to get a little punch too from Neptune, but not as much. I started tweaking it out a little and before I knew it my BLM was landing almost 2k each on mandies in our cleave run.

    STR/MND mods kinda stinks for WAR/BST. While the STR is a no brainer--if your MND is underpowered it could be holding it back a bit. IDK if it would get any help from a moldy earring, but could be worth a try too I guess (if you have one).

    1 MAB = +1% damage on magic WS.

    STR and MND are equal on cloudsplitter because it's a magic WS. It's unaffected by physical damage calculations.

    Wildfire also has a 5.5 damage multiplier, you can use a Vulcan's Staff with it and COR can use Wizard's Roll and sub BLM for a whole lot of Magic Attack Bonus.

    Trueflights the same way, most of the time I can only do decent numbers with it on a mob if its weak to magic or resistant to physical damage and its even more compouned that its only modifier is AGI.

    What sort of numbers are you putting up exactly, and against what target/zone?
