    It's only useful for high single target damage if you want a stun. To be honest, the damage and delay is similar to spamming flash fist so flash fist can also get the dps you need for a single target. It's just a bit useful for stunning especially when you get a little bit of extra damage third job with stun mastery. Other than that, it is just a filler skill.

    I don't know if I'm missing something but after I hit a monster with Double Uppercut I can't use it again for 2 more seconds. Same thing with Corkscrew Blow and Backspin Blow but I always thought that was intentional.

    Correct, all of these skills have a huge delay and aren't spammable themselves. They are best used with combinations of each other.

    Thanks for the clarification! For single target damage right now then is it best to alternate Double Uppercut and Flash Fist or something similar?

    "As a Buccaneer, you need at least 9k HP to survive, but it is much preferred to have even higher HP to survive more hits and careless mistakes that you may make."
    I would recommend AT LEAST 12-13k HP minimum to tank some body parts, but if you want to be on the super safe side, 16k-18750 would be the most ideal.

    Is the best combo for grinding elbow + dragon strike? The delay on dragon strike is way too long to justify using only dragon strike right?

    Corkscrew blow feels alot nicer to use, but I feel like elbow has been doing quite alot more damage with the crits.

    You are right! Dragon Strike after Dragon Strike is way too long of a cooldown for that to be effective. Backspin Blow + Dragon Strike will be the most efficient way of training in 4th job because it will get you those stun crits and combos very well. Corkscrew Punch takes too long to charge up and with the extra stuns on 3 mobs with Backspin Blow, BSB + DS is the best training combo. If Energy Charge is up, Energy Blast is also a good follow up to BSB if the mobs are low on HP since it's a very fast hitting skill.

    Heartstoppers and onyx apples give 60 att and 100 att respectively and does not stack with energy charge - they are working fine.
    Thanks for the heads up and I'll change the time leap part :)

    Supertransform doesn't give attack so it won't effect it at all. :)

    Even I have a hard time getting 100-110 dex sometimes. Completely dexless is 20 dex but at level 200, you will have 23 dex anyways. It's not a huge deal and where are you getting the dex from? If you don't have pure attack gear yet (att gloves, cape, shoes) I would start getting those. A couple extra points into dex isn't a big problem and I would focus more on better attack gear and knuckles.

    I have attack gear, 7 atk fs and pgc at the moment. i was just curious about what you would consider a bucc with 25 dex base. my gear is 8 dex face, 29 dex zhelm (gonna get another when i can fight zak on my bucc properly), 36 robe, dep star, 10 dex earings which i might make 12 for extra dex. i'll wash out those last points after i'm done washing

    You can do several things to exchange the extra dex without messing with your base. The one thing that I would change out would be a Str pirate overall. If you can get one of those, you may even be missing some dex, but you can get a 40 stat + one for a decent price that is similar to your robe.

    Any advice for an aspiring Bucc? Some advice on what to improve next would be awesome, my gear is as follows:

    Level 143

    15STR/30DEX ZHelm
    35DEX Bathrobe
    10 Dex Earring
    15Att SCG
    4Att PGC (Clean)
    2Att FS (Clean)
    1Att Anniversary Scarf (Clean)
    99Att King Cent (Currently attempting to pass 4x 30% on first 4 slots of an 84 King Cent, and I am suicide scrolling failed ones as temporary knuckles)

    Still require DEX robe to wear a Knuckle, however once I have a decent KRex Ring (+any other event rings, since currently have none) and a DEX Maple Leaf I will make a STR Overall a priority.

    Your dex seems like it's in pretty good shape. You can start getting attack gear or start chaosing since a lot of your damage will be coming from the attack gear and not a few extra str. You can chaos your scarf and hope it goes well, if not use a dep star and/or wait for HT to come back and pick up a godly HTP and egg that when you get to that level. A better king cent would be pretty good upgrade (102 - 106 att) too.

    Probably start Chaos process here next; pendant, then pgc(goal of 10+att), and then work on my fs, I have a scrolled lvl100 12str boot on backup in case of fs fail

    Single Earring - 9DEX (Looking to gacha for a Gold Emerald earrings)
    Yellow Adventurer Cape - 12DEX
    Blue Work Gloves - 2DEX, 8WATT
    White Pioneer (lvl80 pirate overall) - 30STR, 3DEX
    Blue Pageant(lvl80 pirate shoes) - 7STR, 10DEX

    Horus's Eye 4STR, 4DEX
