i have 2 sets and i was wondering what would be best for unstacked ws. i use RR SA and VV for atma but i can use AaO and the ws is evis
My sets are

head: aias bonnet
neck: LT
Body: Loki
legs: tumbler
hands: AF3 +1
feet: Rager = 10 acc 12 att
ears mermans and brutal
rings Keen ring and raja's
back ama mantle
belt angenous

other is
head: aias bonnet
neck: LT
Body: Loki
legs: tumbler
hands: AF3 +1
feet: Lithe
ear mermans and brutal
ring Jupiter and raja's
back Nifty mantle
belt Chaculain
I felt i need more att and i still have +40 dex in 1st set + crour and atma would give me a good amount. so thats why i added all the att and acc from belt ring feet ect. most of it was free anyway so i put it togather. not sure if the lost of dex will hurt the dmg. but i dont really /war anymore and i know what zerk did so i thought would help alot. was wondering what u guys think

i'm only recently putting a WS set together but from what i've seen, adding more DEX will give better results then adding more attack. This is because dex is a modifier on evisceration. my plan is to stack as much DEX as i can into my WS gear. my friend has blade: Hi and had to stack AGI, my WSs do between 1.8-3k damage depending on the monster, and his does 5k damage, hoping to see similar results. plus it doesn't hurt to have DEX set for stacking evisceration with Sneak attack, since both modify'd by dex. although i'd like to know if crit hit damage increase gear might work for mantle.

This is a common misconception, that seems to be getting pretty prevalent. Yes, DEX increases your base damage, yes, crits make atk less useful (read less useful NOT useless), but atk is still critical to getting the most out of your weaponskills. The screenshots you see of people getting ridiculous eviscerations are of people that have a lot of DEX AND a lot of atk. With the massive source of DEX from atmas and curor buffs out there right now, atk is at least as important as DEX in weaponskills right now.

I like the first set that you have, but I think it has a little too much accuracy in it, so you could probably swap a bit out and still be ok. I am assuming the angenous is the belt that drops from Kulkulcan with +15 acc/atk and 1% DA. If so, I would say Cuchulain's belt could probably go into that spot. I would actually keep the Rager's Ledelsens(sp?) because that 12 atk is nice, and would probably do about as much as Lithe's +6 DEX, Keen ring vs. Jupiter is kind of break even, unless you get the augmented Jupiter ring from the abyssea quest and it augments with atk. I would probably go with the nifty over amemet mantle +1, but that is going to be really close too. If it is just regular amemet mantle, then nifty is definitely better.
