I modeled my Hybrid DB to take down Valkyrie in 1-hit without needing overly expensive stuff. Getting kill on valk with double attack from Surcoat just takes:
Top- Acute 3 ORC
Mid/Lower- Mob set
armor- MTBA Angry Ninetails
Weapon- +12 Lindy Hop any 2*FS enchant
Garment - Surcoat of death blow
Boots - Temporal LUK boots/gray wing boots
Acc1 - Dogtag with GS
Acc2 - PDM/BSG
80 STR/LUK, so all other stats is centered around DB.
This already does around 3.4M dmg on valk with full food buffs, spellshield etc. I would say it's mid-level gears for serious CRIT RK (lindy and Acute Enchant). Once you get to extremes (like my +15lindy and MOT card), i even one-shot valk without needing double attack on my hybrid (using FAW, str6 flat and temporal ring).
Bio4, however, is a different story. It is considerably more expensive to one-shot HP and especially Pally(6.9M HP lol) in Bio4 with hybrid DB Crush strike, since they are medium size. There is no guaranteed kills for hybrid DB, only that 66% chance with Double attack from surcoat or turisus activation (or both lol).
EG: Using Acute5, +14 Lindy and AbusiveSTR5(angry ninetails), i am able to deal 4M CS with double attack to randel/HP. It's enough to kill HP with leftover attacks from zerk, but not Pally. Unless you get that lucky 15% turisus proc, you will need to die once after the first CS to Pally on Hybrid DB. It takes the full extreme +15 Lindy with MOT to be able to almost kill Pally with Double Attack Crush Strike on hybrid DB(model damage is 6.6M).
Is it worth it? If it is for valk, it's pretty worth since it's very reliable. For bio4, maybe not so much because you not only need extra cost for crit gears, but also stat investment into str/luk, forcing your RK to be a food consumer from henceforth. Later on, if we can get squirrel hat from OCP, it will be even better though. No stat investment in LUK required for full 100% defense pierce, no need for bio5 enchant and access to 2 accessory slots for more crit dmg. In that case i would 100% recommend ALL RKs to have a side CRIT hybrid.
