I dont know if thats high for a level 180 MA equip but do comment on my statement.
Besides, i have never seen any boss unique sets like blood sword or tender spear with MA compounds...
but say for an equivalent ultimate blue dragon rod (lvl 170) ... with an above avg base stats and if no myshop is used (that means no refine powders)... an unrefined ultimate BDR won't match blood sword in terms of MA... but refining it risks breaking it (ever experience the frustration of failing refining at lvl 0??
) ... so w/o myshop it is easier to get a better MA for blood sword....
if myshop is used... u can use refine powders to repair the rod and refine to lvl 8 and above (depending on how much u want to spend)... but likewise for blood sword u can buy elixers, nates and magic stones and should be able to get it to say 100MA to match the ultimate? so with myshop... in the end the MA is more or less the same. (but with myshop u might as well go one step better and get myhax from say lol boxes and refine those.... lololol...)
so i would think that for non myshop users... boss unique set can still be used by magic users as a good alternative to ultimates... especially when u consider having the extra HV from the weapon and other bonuses (HV? HP? LK? WT?) u get from the complete set (depending on which set)...
