It's really strange. So I transferred over the cape and gloves from my Mech over. I was expecting to finish the Red Leaf dungeon much faster, with a range of up to 23k, up from ~20k. For some reason I seemed to take LONGER to clear the dungeon. Did a few runs with the more powerful gear, and barely finished off with a minute left. I then took off some of the gear, lost about 27 weapon attack. I ran out of Warrior Elixirs from NLC, so I lost a net total of 39 weapon attack before I re-entered the Red Leaf dungeon.
So what happens? The exact same dungeon, I'm clearing it FASTER. I just got off with about 4 minutes left, meaning a 6 minute clear time, compared to the previous 8-9 minute clears.
Add in my Mech and Mihile, who had crap for scrolled weapons, are clearing the dungeon faster than my Bucc with clean gear more or less.
What the heck is going on here?
