umaru
umaru loses to Ichigohitofuri unless it has solid augments.

Just as an example, using Ejin's TP1 set and conditions:
Code
Simulated Average: ichigohitofuri_a 6970.29  (WS :  24723.48 )
AA Percent:  0.11 WS Percent:  0.89

Three Minute Sims.: ichigohitofuri_a

     7511.72  (WS :  26007.04 )
     7292.86  (WS :  24903.8 )
     7262.53  (WS :  26373.3 )
     6705.53  (WS :  23717.06 )
     6921.48  (WS :  24181.88 )
     7205.24  (WS :  25152.61 )
     7093.52  (WS :  24716.63 )
     7126.25  (WS :  25964.73 )
     7257.73  (WS :  26294.58 )
     7455.62  (WS :  25569.14 )

Simulated Average: umaru_ex 7013.98  (WS :  25247.28 )
AA Percent:  0.11 WS Percent:  0.89

Three Minute Sims.: umaru_ex

     7350.92  (WS :  26465.02 )
     7125.32  (WS :  24868.92 )
     7014.12  (WS :  24938.21 )
     7752.19  (WS :  26697.37 )
     6903.28  (WS :  25506.23 )
     7558.6  (WS :  27138.77 )
     7761.07  (WS :  27644.89 )
     7309.93  (WS :  26049.13 )
     6546.24  (WS :  24887.71 )
     6929.4  (WS :  25807.62 )



And the umaru's augments:
Code
DMG + 30
STR + 15
Acc + 20
Atk + 20
Weapon Skill DMG + 3


Personally I'd just skip Umaru and stick with Ichigohitofuri and use stones on armor, but it is better if you feel like dumping stones into it for the best augments.

I've been using the Escha Sky T2/Each Sky AAGK great Katanas.

The later is neat, it has stp/high delay, and a 1% chance to keep tp. Sucks it has no accuracy, but already it has wsacc.

I think it's an under rated GK.

I only use SAM for JPing on apex though.

How does Deacon spread sheet with a 4 hit and a 1% chance of a free WS?

Well there could be a number of factors as to why that is.

I don't think the spreadsheets handle Zanhasso gear like Ryuo feet or the Ru'Aun GK properly. What kind of 4 hit do you have in mind? I could add it to my sim, but I doubt it's that great compared to some other options.

I used A in the example, but B is probably a wiser choice with more accuracy.

I was thinking this. It would be heavier in the multi attack department while still having a 4 hit. usually my SAM TP cape has Store TP on it, and I use a Moonbeam Nadowa/Ginsen for my 450 delay GK.

ItemSet 354869
Cape: 20DEX/30Acc/10DA
Legs:10DEX 30 Acc/7STP

TP Return appears to be 264 per swing. You only need 208 TP on a weaponskill.

Multi Attack Comes out to:
36%DA
6%TA
5%QA

If accuracy is needed I'd probably switch things up and use an Ichigohitofuri.

It's entertaining enough for plowing through Apex Bats.

I'm too lazy to modify what I have in my sim from +3 to +2 on the AF, so these numbers are with +3 AF instead, and still uses top WS sets:
Code
Simulated Average: ichigohitofuri_a 5064.33  (WS :  22398.59 )
AA Percent:  0.16 WS Percent:  0.84
