Again, by all means, dont use katana in endless, rod and rifle re very fast and better at endless mobbing than katana.
@TEN-SQUARE-3 I did not ignore it man, You didn't share your equipment so I just had to go test it my way and share what I found.
gigrants eats up a lot of pp. In cases where mobs are grouped up I would pick rabarta over gigrants any time, specially if its a long run encounter like almost every non-single-instance quest. I usually lay down a rabarta and cast a gizonde or 2 and repeat. But in the case mobs are spread out, gizonde is the better tech for mobbing. Regardless, and I say it again: when im mobbing with rod, I tend to use a mix of rabarta and gizonde, unlike force which is simple gizonde all the way.
I thought I had made it apparent that I play a mix of both rod and katana but again: I started off ph as a katana. I started to feel its downsides, I switched to rod main. Then finishing blow came out and I started using both katana and rod depending on the situation, and rod is generally more powerful & versatile so obv I invested more into it than my katana.
Thanks for pointing out my overcharge. It is very minute but looking at your clip, its definitely there. 19 gizonde casts: 1.05 seconds. For my satisfaction I will use my numbers: DPS = 116k. Right if you time it right flawlessly, you can get a higher amount of dps on gizonde, admitted.
True, terrain thingy can be counted in the mob size, kinda same thing. I know tech sprint charge exists but all quick cut, schmetter and a 2nd cast of gizonde are all faster than walking near the mobs while holding a gigrants.
As for gigrants aoe, again, I would use rabarta just because of how much pp gigrants eats. Moreover: schmetter is not exactly linear. You can control its directions during its animations as well. mobs circled around is nothing too hard to be dealt with, you can schmetter on the outline of the circle and cover a good circumference faster than gigrants with qc + schmetter.
