THIS IS WHY

Fess wears HEAVY ARMOR. Good luck finding heavy armor with strength. I can't find much on my server. Heavy armor is gonna have aim on it mostly. putting medium armor on your tank is silly. tough it out, get the heavy stuff with aim and enjoy

If you find heavy+aim gear use it. If you find heavy+str gear, use it. They stat out the same.

No No No NO No No No!!

For the hundredth time. STR only increases melee. AIM increases melee and tech.
In other words, all of Qyzens abilities rely on his AIM stat.

People stack STR on Qyzen and start whining that he is unable to keep aggro and mobs keep attacking them, because his taunts and shields and such all rely on AIM.


Also, there is plenty of Heavy armour with STR, as that's what JKs wear.

All of the stats affected for Qyzen Fess:

Melee Bonus Damage: both Strength and Aim are there and add an amount of bonus melee damage equal to 20% of their total.

Melee Critical Chance: both Strength and Aim are there, but Strength will add 1 percentage point every ~68.88 points whereas Aim will add 1 percentage point every ~73.95 points.

Tech Bonus Damage: only Aim is present here, and it still adds 20% of the total to damage with Tech skills.

Tech Critical Chance: only Aim is present here, and it still adds 1 percentage point every ~73.95 points.

SO: although Strength wins out in one category by a hair, it's to such a small degree that it's almost negligible. Aim is present in twice as many stats and you shouldn't joke yourself into thinking he doesn't use Tech skills in battle. He does very, very often. What weapon he uses in the game bears no importance at all. He could be throwing firebolts from Harry Potter's wand or be swinging with Chairy from Pee-wee's Playhouse, it doesn't matter. We're talking about Strength and Aim, and above is a breakdown of how both play into Qyzen's stats.

Go for Aim.
