Grief Phase Blade

I just got one of the items listed on my smiter's build as endgame choices, a Grief Phase Blade. I'm very happy with it so far, but I've noticed a few oddities. First, I zeal for much less with it than my heaven's light (1k as opposed to 2k, roughly) but I still kill things in much fewer swings. Can't seem to figure out why. Secondly, and much more noticeably, it doesn't show a durability. It's not flagged as indestructible or anything, there's just no counter for durability on it. Also, heard from an unreliable source that it ignores iron maiden, but haven't encountered iron maiden yet, so can't say for sure. Any info would be golden! Edit: It doesn't ignore iron maiden ><

Well, to answer your second question ~ all PhaseBlade do not have Durability on it. So you can say that it is passively - indestructible.

giref has:
ignore targets defense (helps alot with monsters with a high base def)
-25% Target Defense (calculated per hit, 100%-75%-56%-42%-31%-ect..)
Prevent Monster Heal

but it still does physical dmg which will be reflected back when cursed with im

pb is indistructable (not cannot be ethernal unless a rare/unique crystal/dim blade is upgraded to pb, then they will have durability and will not be indistructable)

Ahh ty, well thats one answered question hehe. And as for the ignores defense, I thought that just improved accuracy?

anytime,
to improve accuracy/chance to hit, you need to add ar, which lowers chance for monsters to hit you and increases the chance for you to hit monsters

Notice that grief's +damage is different from the common %ed mod and does not display properly in the lying character screen; it's actually added to the base damage of your weapon and benefits from any %ed on your character.

In short- use grief, heaven's light doesn't hold a candle to it (no matter what the lcs claims).

AR decreases the chance for monsters to hit you? Wha?

Huh??? -% target defense is cumulative? I always thought it applied only to the current swing. Does this -% defense expire in a similar way to PMH (i.e. 2 screens away from the affected monster)? That's sick, it basically means one Eth in a weapon can eventually bring a monster's defense to laughably small amounts. Even faster with multiple Eth's.



 
Re: Grief Phase Blade

Maybe that only happens with integer -xx to target defense? You're right in it being a bit too powerful to be true.

Yes, that would be very powerfull indeed. Where did you get that information from ffhehjrx?

BTW If you upgrade an ethereal crystal sword/dimensional blade it WILL be indestructible it does not have durability in pb-form.

I thought the same too. I guess it's pics or it can't happen :girly: .

Re: Grief Phase Blade

i remember seeing pics of a rare eth broken pb somewhere, cant find them atm
(ill keep digging, or find one in sp to up)
only upd unique to pb would be Ginther's Rift, which has self repair mod

giref ignores def (doesnt work on bosses, some exceptons work on pvp)
and lowering monsters def should help others, im not sure if it works on bosses

Only integer -def per hit does that.
