Hi, I just came back from the game, and see a lot of new WS's SAM has, I see this one people talk about called Fudo, but it looks like it cost some decent gil to unlock it. Is it actually worth investing gil in? Or will I be just fine with Y/G/K and Rana since they are free?

Go spam WOE there is an event. You may actually end up with a few million in drops.

Fudo is 100% needed, not a question of worth. However judging by your OP you likely dont have Tsurumaru thus are even further behind.

Even if you're using a lvl85 era GKT, unlock Fudo. It's the single best GKT WS for conventional DD setups. You'll also want Shoha and if you don't have Kasha and Rana for some reason, unlock them as well.

All 4 of them are parts of mutli-step skillchains and integral to current SAM play.

How about if you REALLY HAVE TO ASK, you don't deserve to play SAM.

Get off your high horse you ***. He's a returning player. He should have asked in the right thread but other than that its a legit question for someone coming back to game.

Maths is easy for this
Spreadsheets
the 1 other threads about Fudo being op.
the Sam Guide

just a couple of things that had he click Forums > Stickied Tab for guide, would have seen fudo as a Listed ws and mention of how OP it is, not to mention Self Light skillchains.

Or the 9 million Fudo Screenshots all over ffxiah and Guildwork.

I'm not concerned he asked, im concerned he wanted it spoon fed without looking first in places that are fairly obvious.

Its like the guy who has KOga and asked on the Hukong +1 legs Item " I dont know how Fudo WOrks" but I have a Mythic. I mean really now.

you shouldn't be telling somebody to assume ***and to do self research instead of asking.

that's like saying why you forum even if it all if really once was?

If someone didn't read up on the Weaponskill update but was aware of when Shoha was better than Fudo prior to that, its possible to have some confusion and the question would essentially boil down to "Do I have enough attack in most common events to make it worthwhile".

Though I'd assume someone who was aware of those situations would also know how to do a few tidbits of research and see that Fudo crushes everything now, its not like the guide's OP is overly obvious. "Most of your WS will come from Tachi: Fudo" could be catered to a specific example, much like the MNK guide had sets catered to full buff, pre-ilvl Tojil.

And yes, I'm aware OP is a troll.

Regardless, to OP (weither he knew this prior or not) and to new Sams, Fudo is worth it. Can get Dice, Residue, Coins from WOE or purchasing them from bazaars and get Torigashiranotachi -1 from the Splintery chest in Rulude Gardens.

Here is link to how to go about getting Fudo: http://wiki.ffxiclopedia.org/wiki/Torigashiranotachi_-1

Absolutely not, go level PLD, unlock torclever, use the i117 GS and own all the things. SAM is overrated.

With enough DA/TA/QA gears and a good amount of sTP, you're talking about Fudo > Fudo all over the place. Hadn't played SAM in about 6mos and just got Fudo and started testing it out. SAM is pretty OP, kinda crazy how strong a DD it is. Highly encourage you to find out.
