A q3 plate/scale mix is only about 10% worse than a Q4 FP r60 mix. If you don't think 10% gear differnce can be compensated for you should consider dueling more. As for the num A Q3 to Q4 keen is at most 1 point of damage difference. An r50 to r60 is 2-3 points of damage difference. You should be hitting for 30 to 40, 3 to 4 is 10% of that. Please tell me how that's incorrect?
