Better for Kicksin: Chaos or Fury?

Which do you all think would be better for a PvP kicksin? Fury gives 66% OW (which would land like 50-60 dmg per sec over 8 secs) and 20% bonus to AR. Chaos on the other hand gives 216-471 magic dmg (reduced by 1/6 in pvp?) per hit as well as 25% OW. I wont be getting OW from any other sources and will be hitting at a speed of 7/2/2/2/2/2 frames. Do you guys think the magic dmg will kill faster, as that I can land 6 kicks in 1 sec, or the OW dmg since even if I miss or a kick is blocked it will still do dmg once it is triggered? Also, will the AR bonus on fury be necessary, or do kicksins usually ave a high enough AR naturally?

the ar bonus does not transfer to kicks....

I'm going for chaos, but i'm doing a ww/DTalon/Dflight hybrid with venom.

I say use the Chaos. The magic damage on this thing HURTS. Also, with the speed of your kicks you will most likely cast OW alot. I know that I do on my kicker. Her OW total is 50% and she does better with Chaos than she does with Fury. Oh, kicksins do have high natural AR ;)

If you really want open wounds or to land more hits then you might want to look at malice. If anything you can keep it on weapon switch land a few and then switch to chaos. The great thing about chaos is it will help immensly with phys immunes.

Couple of things, I thought about using malice, but I plan on using fade instead of BoS, so the IAS from fury or chaos is a must. Also, I was thinking about OW some. Since it lasts 8 secs, even if only 1 out of 6 kicks connects and I can do 6 kicks in one sec, that would give me 8 chances for OW. With 25% OW, I should get it at least once in 8 secs. Does anyone know the pvp penalty for magic dmg? Is it 1/6 like for phys dmg?
