    In this months item world.

    There are going to be a lot of Seering Embers that I’ll be thrown in there for bonus stats.

    Seeing how Zeno hits the attack cap so easily, what other stats are you looking for to throw on your katanas?

    HP buffs with regen or refresh?

    I only have 2 zeno, so my katana for him is only lasswell stmr. Gonna work on that this week. Still going for atk, having all atk on weapon can free up materia

    I think is better to focus on Atk, because more free slots would make the unit more flexible with your materia of choice.

    Agree with this. If you can free up a slot for another killer while still hitting the ATK cap, your damage will go up a TON.

    Edit--I realize you can't stack a specific killer materia (e.g., you can't equip two Man-Eater materias). But you can add something like LB damage boost, or a Man-Eater and a Man-Eater+ for example.

    The IW is kind of random. On my dps weapons when going for rare if I get an auto refresh or a 10 to 15% hp or mp I keep it. If I luck out and get rare 15% and 10 or 12% attack awesome. But if I get rare a 10% attack and a 15% hp I’m happier then a 5% and 7% attack.

    Seems like I'll have to kill Gilgamesh right after the maintenance. Oh, well... Esther should have powercreeped him quite badly :)
    (more seriously, I'll just go and see)

    It also saves rerunning it in the future if you need to use it on another unit.

    That’s a good idea, I’ve never thought about it that. I should be able to free up two slots.

    What about the passive on Seering Ember? It gives 75% Man-Eater. What if I can equip two?

    Plus that should stack with material because it is a different name?

    If you have 8 zeno, then 2 searing ember will give 150% man eater yes.

    But generally you'll want to equip 2 types of weapons to get the most atk bonus possible

    Not in the case of Zeno, if you have two of his STMR, he will get 240% ATK without considering other gear. Then you can get gravie's, suzume's and Chizuru's TMs for 380% ATK with two free materia slots, being only 20% away from the cap wich can be easily done with IW. Even another Katana can be enough for the cap if you get two 30% ATK boost from IW.

    Gravey’s TMR and Legendary Guardian is another 130% alone. Maybe Katana Mastery can be replaced with IW buffs leaving two open slots.

    One can be taken with Dream of the Fayth if you have that. Then a killer in he fourth slot
