Melee speed is not the only parameter you'd want to get?Nothing too surprising there, Valhalla Knight specializes in ballista, and although daybreak doesn't pierce it's a very strong weapon. Great for the ogres and Betsy. Also the Valhalla Knight's breastplate gives you an insane healing rate. I haven't tried the other Tier 3 armors yet, but it doesn't look like they have any comparable abilities. I'm wondering if that one might be a little overpowered.
Also, why so much talks about Daybreak? Mediocre single target dps, no AOE at all. Why the hype?
