    So Im in the middle of building my Chair Rain and I have the next question.

    So there are two handed and single handed great swords and there is the "boots equipment attack when a single weapon is equiped in both hands".

    My question is: Do only two handed weapons (like cloud ultima weapon) get this bonus, or do single handed weapons when equipped by themselves (like hyoh ultima weapon) also get this bonus.

    But for A.K. Rain, you want a two-handed great sword. Higher average damage variance means more damage.

    Ah, thanks bro.

    I have the option to go for either KH Cloud STMR or Hyoh STMR, so for the sake of versatility i guess Hyoh is the best option since it can be worn by double handed characters like CG Rain or Dual Wielders like Bartz right?.

    For versatility? Sure.

    For overall damage just for King Rain? No.

    All top dps, too many to list
    It's actually not, hyoh stmr is only good for tdw units. Tdh units want 2-handed weapons.

    Single-hand weapons have a weapon variance of 1.0
    Two-hand greatswords have a weapon variance of 1.0 - 1.6 so they average at 1.3 so on average, they do 30% MORE damage than a single-hand weapon.

    And there are two versions of "doublehand". Regular doublehand only works for single-hand weapons being the only equipped weapon.
    "True Doublehand" works on both single AND two-hand weapons being the only equipped weapon. So you want the 2-hand weapons equipped if you are building a TDH unit for the extra variance damage boost.

    Hope that helps.

    2-handed guns and Bows average 1.5, and so on. These numbers themselves are modal averages, being the most frequent variances for their class. You do get the occasional odd duck, such as the Fixed Dice; and the "Swords" category is a total mess, with no two weapons having the same range.

    Well I got KH Buster Sword, I loved playing as Rain this weekend so its worth the investment, even if its not an ideal weapon for most of the next meta characters.

    Thanks a lot for all the advice guys.
