Okay finally got time to reply.
First of all, I am well aware that HYBRIED builds have their own use (soloing is easier, less sc consuming, no real weakness) but Jack of all trades is a master of none, while purely tuned for specific job setup will give better result at that specific job, but will require backing of a specific sc to not suck in other fields (as example, str builds lacking crit, so they need some crit sc).
However there is a flaw in logic, what makes you think that STR IN GEARS works same as str in BUILD??
It never was like this. Just like end in gears doesnt add block rate and SPR in gears doesnt add CRIT.
STR and INT are most useless bonuses on gears from my observation, maybe high dmg/str setup will benefit gladiator due to passive/vitality/way how glad's dmg stacks, but lets be real...
100 dmg on gear adds only like 10 REAL dmg.
Its not same as 100 str in BUILD.
And in light of this, whole calculation about str/dmg amplifiers looks questionable and requires checking.
Lastly, Talisman adds REAL dmg or JUST dmg?
I honestly dont know, didnt test. Still debating if STR talisman worthy of getting.
Did anybody test in pvp via punching?
If its REAL dmg, then it will add to punching, if its just a STAT, it wont.
Good question about the talisman would be unique if it added piercing damage.
As for the cs comment if u don’t use cs I see no harm with going 25 spr (25 since after this it is impacted by finishing returns). However, if you have cs maximise your damage with str via build
gear stats end/dex then either int/str or spr
pve glad would go
these stats maximise dps with a full str build + cash shop
