Default Axis Blade or Lionheart?

Which should I use? I do like the Axis blade for its ATB Advantage, but Lionheart seems to be better. Well, seems. I equipped it, and it doesn't really help. But since I hear it's preferably better, which should I use?

Btw, I hear speed sash + Axis Blade = epic win; thing is I did the missions and stuff, but I don't really remember if I have it lol, and I'm kinda too lazy to turn on my PS3; so does speed sash and axis blade work really well together?

I recommend you to use and upgrade Lionheart, because of its ability Lucky Break when combined with some accesories.

It seems to me you may be unclear on what Quick Stagger actually does. What its suppose to do, is after ~90% of the chain gauge is reached, Lightning's next attack will instantly stagger the target. Allowing you to skip ~10% of the chain gauge. Now, I say "suppose" because I have, more than once, been certainly above 90% chain gauge when Lightning lands a hit and the target did not stagger. Although for the most part is has been reliable. Maybe its not a 100% chance to instant stagger until its Ultima Weapon (mine is still tier2, I'm afraid to commit).

That being said- I have read in several places that Lionheart is definitely the way to go. And that makes sense because people generally agree that Lightning is a better ravager than Commando.

As for the Axis blade thing, I have no idea.

Ohhh, thanks. I was kind of confused on the Quick Stagger. Thanks!

Should I keep using the Axis Blade now and just upgrade the Lionheart separately, since I don't really have trouble with the monsters, so no real need for stagger?

I think Axis Blade might raise the stagger gauge faster anyway, since it's like continuous attack.

it comes down to personal preference. u'll get awesome spammability with axis blade (especially if u put up the correct 4 accessories; +10% faster atb recharge per accessory from boost synthesis group) in comparison to quick stagger from lionheart and random:instant stagger with 1 gestalt accessory(dont really use gestalt/tp boost but having the choice is always nice). personally, i'd prefer lionheart coz 10% skip is huge (for high-lvl opponents), quick stagger triggers almost always, instant stagger is achievable with only 1 accessory (gestalt/tp boost with 3 if needed) and its max stat is nearly 400 pts better than axis balde's max stat (200 each for str & mag)

I'm using Lionheart but I have a feeling that Axis Blade is better to be honest.

I don't think 10% skip is very good.

Not sure if quick stagger makes that much of a difference. If the boss is really difficult to stagger, its going to be a chore getting it up to 90% as much as 100%. Typically, the difference between 90% and 100% doesn't seem like much. I am using the omega weapon from Gladius -> Helter skelter right now. And I am liking the heavy damage Light pulls out when she goes com.

When I get enough money, maybe I will try upgrading a lionheart or a axis blade make a practical comparison.
