I was looking at the list of trials to do and my my, there are so many. So I was wondering which of these do I absolutely need to have.
I am currently 0/18 on X's Knife. 0/10 Eye of Verthandi (working on Athame Double-Attack), my THF just deleveled last night in a sac pull back to 75, but I plan to take it to 80 in a matter of two weeks. I have no Ridill, nor am I really planning to get one. My Mandau status is still at stage 1. So pretty much, I am your average thief that is trying to make it out there.
I main hand Blau Dolch until I get X's Knife, offhand Sirocco Kukri when /NIN. I do have Garuda's Dagger (lol!) which I use only casting mobs at times because Silence helps when it procs.
Trials that I am currently working on are both Athame's (double atack dagger) and Kila (Evasion +16).
I found the Parazonium series interesting, the final shape giving Double Attack +7, yet my concern is the delay of 211 and whether or not this dagger would be a viable replacement for sirocco kukri.
Other than that, I'm looking at the list of trials and I see a lot of them with potential. I am just wondering if I have (which I don't yet, but I should soon...) X's Knife, will I need any of them or are they situational by chance and when/where would I possibly need them? This includes Accuracy dagger (DEX+6 Acc+12), VIT dagger (kiting? I have Terra's Staff which I kite in but wondering if the added VIT will beat the loss in Physical Damage Taken) and Fusetto (Store TP+8).
Please feel free to include daggers that are not trials which thieves must carry. I'd like to look at what I should/shouldn't consider based on your recommendations when gearing up my thief.
I do a lot of endgame, including HNM's. Although I often attend EG on my other jobs depending on how many THFs pop, I like to contribute to my linkshell's damage input when doing things like zerg rather than just be there for the added TH.
