    Will this Scarf in the upcoming event be a good equipment for DH builds too?

    For DH, not TDH. Which is inferior to DW most of the time because of normal variance and absence of WA :)

    It's nice, don't get me wrong.
    It does however create a very slight issue though.
    We don't have another 25% equip bonus item.

    So we are then at 275% and still not at cap.

    Definitely useful especially if you can't each the 300% cap though.
    Just a shame we can't get a 2nd one.


    Sadly though it's a no go for TDH.

    The issue is the variance bonus... man, they are releasing a lot of gear that does [not true]doublehand, and in order to use any of it, you essentially have to give up the variance bonus that you would get with TDH. So there is no way to use any of this as an add-on while fully utilizing any actual TDH gear.

    Seems like a total waste to me. The maths are such that even most of the finishers do better dual wielding than [not true]doublehand.

    Only thing I have is Tomb Raider. Not nearly enough to get into the game of TDH. It's all still locked up behind the Cloud wall. Without Buster Style, it's meaningless.

    Only for beginners. It should be viable for about 12 minutes until you get better stuff.

    It's usable as a filler for newer players until they get better equipment. No one runs straight DH builds, not sure why they'd make something like this.

    Could be useful on someone like Olive that most likely uses a 1 hand weapon, assuming you dont have marshal gloves ofcourse.

    Its good if you are single-wielding Sephiroth's TMR on himself and don't have a second Marshal's glove i guess.

    That was my initial thought, but the problem is she gets 200% DH boost from her gun plus innate. That would get her to 250%, meaning she needs to equip another DH ability to get to 300%.

    (Correction: the DH passive on the event scarf is only 25%. So she’s only getting to 275% with it)

    Instead, you could equip another Desch Earring and Buster Style, so you’ve lost 25 raw atk or 100 atk including multiplier.

    But still decent if you’re lacking those, and may come in handy on a second DH unit chaining partner down the line.

    The only reasons to do such a thing is : A, lack of DW source and B, lack of knowledge on how DW/DH works. Cause even if his TMR give a 50% DH, this still has a normal variance and without a TDH full set you are better off with a normal DW build.

    Yeah that's what's up with Masamune and this scarf thing; GUMI is playing a big trick on the whole community and many of the players who are in, but not quite enough to be wise to how the mechanics work, are falling for it.
    The put "doublehand" effects on some new equipment, even though that effect hasn't been relevant basically since Orlandeau started the chaining meta.

    Now we have tons of players who see "doublehand" on something and they take the bait, lowering their overall output by a ton.

    Maybe this is how they plan to make the game more challenging? By fooling some of us into playing wrong?
