Heya's!

I'm fresh off dinging 90 on my WHM, and I'd like to have a decent melee set for soloing on WHM/NIN. Anyone able to give any suggestions on gear? Nothing outlandish such as emp weapons or relics, or even AF+2 for now, but something reasonably easy to obtain to get started. Weapons, armor, etc.

Anyone care to share their setup? Thanks!

P.S. I checked the melee gear link in one of the threads at the top, but it appears to be severely outdated...

Not really. We haven't had any new haste gear released for WHM except for "all jobs" stuff like Goading Belt and Zelus Tiara. As far as clubs go, other than the magian trials they haven't released many for DD. You can get a Vodun Mace while you work toward a Molva Maul. For WS gear, all I can think of is Augur's Jaseran (if you don't have a melee Royal Redingote), Potentia Cape, Light/Flame Belt or Crudelis Belt, and Rokugo Hachimaki or Teal Chapeau (depending on acc).

Winged mace is also a solid option. I duo'd that thing with a blm/whm on my pup/nin. Very little competition good respawn rate.

Oh and it looks like the new cure potency club has some pretty solid dps if I recall correctly if you want to keep that utility in your off hand since beni club was such a @#%^ing let down.(Once again the whm exclusive club a good 2-3 dps lower then every other mage weapon including blm and sch)


Edit: oh that nm a chariot in Grauberg. So long as you have a status healer you can outrun its nukes with movement speed. He can be tricky and might take a few practice runs to get into the groove.

Goliard Saio & Blessed gear are good for haste. Two rings that I swear by for WHM/NIN are Lava's Ring & Kusha's Ring, they take a bit of camping but they're worth it. As far as earrings, Brutal Earring & Aesir Ear Pendant are pretty much our best.

Since OP said specifically /nin, brutal and suppa are you best bet. Unless you meant for WS.

Oh right, I always forget about Suppa because I traded mine in a while back when I leveled DRK.

Another thing that's really nice for WHM melee: the add-on armor (Selenian Cap, Royal Redingote, and Tatsumaki Sitagomoro).

The Selenian Cap makes a great Hexa piece. Use a combination of Acc/Atk, Weaponskill Acc, or Crit Dmg.

The Royal Redingote can make a good weaponskill piece and/or a good TP piece if you don't need Goliard Saio for haste. Use a combination of Acc, Atk, or Crit Rate.

The Tatsumaki Sitagomoro are best used for a TP piece with Haste+3 Acc+7. You can get one more haste with Blessed Trousers +1, but you lose out on the 7 accuracy. If you're dead set on Blessed+1 or some other piece, you can build a weaponskill piece with acc, atk, and/or crit dmg.

If your Winja'ing then you can get this for a main hand Hammer
Molva Maul

Quote:

DMG: 65 Delay: 308
Latent effect: "Randgrith"
Lv. 85 WHM / SCH


65DMG on a main hand is pretty high as far as hammers go. This is a common drop off an easy to lowman NM. Good stand in until you get Emp / Relic Hammer, or if you don't feel like going that route then just main hand this in your melee build.

WHM could already cap haste, Goading / Z.Tiara just made it easier. Blessed hands / legs / feet, Goading belt, Golliard Body and either W.turban or the +14 attack mask. Throw in Blessed +1 and you can cap it out. What sucks is you guys don't have much in the way of WS and attack gear, throw on what you can, you can use the Rancor Collar if neck piece if you don't mind taking 10% extra damage.
