So, going to make an anwig with dex/agi/critdmg/wsdmg good? yes/no?

Looking to make it as a ws piece but I'm open to any other good pieces it can be. Doesn't necessarily have to pertain to thf or the anwig specifically.

Banalaty mathed it out in the "rudras storm mods" thread and found the difference between Anwig and Aias to be pretty minimal.

I recently redid my Anwig with Evasion+10 and Haste+3% augments on it. Given that the Salade already has Subtle Blow +3 on it, it makes a nice Evasion/SB piece that doesn't make me loose all my haste.

I'm trying to decide what to do with my Mirke. I had gone the Acc/DW route, which is pretty pointless now. My pants I went with Mvmt Speed/Elemental Siphon for my mages.

Is it good? Yeah. Its up there with the current best stuff available for WS generally. But its not head and shoulders over anything that exists. If you dont have Aias bonnet or heca cap even, then it is probably your best bet for WS. But once you get some of the fancy smancy gear, its just a sidegrade for the most part. On the upside, you can use it until you get something like aias and just toss it and fight lolMoogle again at that point for something else.

I personally redid the fight not long before the server went down (had the lv 75 standard choice of 10acc, 5atk, 3% haste for TP-ing) since it was obsolete in that form. But i havent picked another augment yet since I dont really see anything aww inspiring to make it into.

Currently leaning with a Agi4, WS+2%, MAB+3 for wildfire build on my rng since MAB is such a novelty for them. But i really not sure what id do if it was for thf onry. I am kinda liking the idea of eva10/STP 4 with 3% fastcast augments for an Utsu/Evasion piece. But the DD aspects of all these augment pieces are just getting overshadowed by new gear forcing them into niche uses, or holdovers until you get the new gear.

I'm very much in the same boat, i got the Mirke(DW+3/ACC+10), and did the kitty pants knock off for my SAM, and never finished the head. I want to go through and redo these now to make them a bit more applicable, especially since i've retired SAM. But i can't decide weather i should put them towards my WHM,RDM or THF. So i'd like the expand the question past just the salade, but to all of the addon gear, and see if people have recommendations on augments for them at 90 and beyond. Or in the same line, if you think there is a stronger combination for other jobs then what you can get for THF.

That is actually a really good idea for an Aeolian Edge set. Since we don't actually have cream of the crop picks for MAB either.

As to the OP, I currently have +4 STR/DEX +15 WS acc +2% crit damage on mine, and I will probably keep it that way. Aias bonnet doesn't appeal to me for WS because of what Banalaty said above. If I change it, I will probably take off str/ws acc and put on agi/WS dmg, or do what Banalaty was thinking about and make it an Aeolian Edge piece.

That actually never occured to me to use it for Aeolian also xD Soon as i got wildifre i was thinking about doing it, but it never crossed my mind that it would double for thf as well. I guess that pretty much settles my choice then lol.

Every time I contemplate redoing my ACC/DW Mirke I get underwhelemed with the choices and wonder if I should bother. Should I do MATB for AE? (What would I even do for the second augment?) Should I get a Fast Cast body for Utsu? Should I get an EVA/DW body? None of these options seem to have enough wow factor for me to get particularly excited about redoing the fight. ><;

The body/legs are a little uninspireing now. They are definately forced into very niche uses. Some food for thought.

Body:
*Eva+fastcast. More Utsu! And technically better evasion than SH+1 with 10eva/5agi to boot.

*Racc/Ratk+10 with 5agi/str/dex makes it a very nice ranged piece if you lack skadi. But pink set body still covers this nowadays. Can tweak and do racc+snapshot for grinzies,

*MAB/MACC for aeolian edge

Legs:
*Racc/Ratk+7 for our best /ra leg available

*MAB+4+4Macc (aeolian edge)

Or 2 of:
*4% phy damage taken
*8% movement speed if you lack skadi/trotters etc.
*Eva 7
Can have movement and -phy for kiting if no speedy boots. Can do eva/ -damage for general eva and for -phy set. Or just pick any 2 and have 2 niche pieces.

All a little underwhelming, but it is what it is now. Niche. I am really liking the eva+fastcast options for both head/body. With magragora necklace, homam legs, loquatious earring, we can really start making a serious dent in those ichi casts. Thats 24% fastcast and thats kinda hawt.

/shrug you wont really miss any of them, but if your bored with nothing to do one day, might as well finish the fight. Even if you just sit on it for a while and dont upgrade till your sure.

Hmm agi/wsdmg/mab sounds like a great idea. Time to toss and redo someday and just use my Aias Bonnet from now on.
