I play on the PC, and we got Safi jiiva recently.

I've been farming him and upgrading a few safi weapons, specifically gunlance/SnS but I heard the new Raging Brachy gunlance is better. In other words, it kind of killed my motivation to continue upgrading it.

So now I'm looking for any kind of safi weapon I can work on, that won't get overshadowed so quickly. Thank you for your time and assistance!

P.S: I'm looking for information on any kind of "average joe" builds, I've been trying to look but all I seem to find are meta speed runner builds using jewels bestowed by god himself.

From what I hear, the new GL options are strong but for every other weapon Safi is still varying degrees of slightly better to worse but by too small a margin to really make much difference compared to Raging Brachy (there doesn't seem to be much discussion about Furious Rajang stuff).

Safi is nearly allways top Tier.
Raging is mostly a Sidegrade and his GS and LS are specialy close to Safi.
All the Guns are good. Zorah, Rajang, Furious, Garuga, Stygian...
Safi isnt very prominent under Long range Weapons.
His Ice CB is also inferior to Beos.

So dont worry.
The worst thing what can happen is, Alatreon showing up later whit the best Dragongear.

Hmm I see, I made one of those Safi Shatterbuster wide lvl 6 gunlances, and a long lvl 6 gunlance as well.

F. Rajang and R. Brachy have Wide 7 Gunlances now.

Raging Brach weapons are comparable to Safi Blast weapons with 2 sharpness & 3 Attack. Compared to that thay have slightly less raw in exchange for slightly more Blast and an additional Lv3 slot.

The brachy wide GL is pretty fantastic but that's about it as far as strickly better goes. The rest are so close that you can pick either lol

Furious Jang HBG have a lot of talk for normal and sticky ammo. That's about it for jang. GL and HBG are my favorite weps of this update lol

I watched a video that basically said that raging brachy weapons are better for raw, but safi weapons are still best for elemental.

You should check out the math guys where they go over that Brachy weapons are still under Safi's for raw but they come close and don't require a siege/raid to get. They're also slightly better for utility.
