Well, I have been looking around...
It doesn't seem to have much choices ?!

Off hand - STR+9 ATK+20 (Fire Path Magian)
Ammo - Thew Bomblet (STR+2)
Head - Heca Cap +1 (STR+12)
Neck - ire Torque+1 (STR+7)
Earring - Vulcan's pearl (STR+4) / Brutal
Body - Heca Harness+1 (STR+13)
Hands - Empry+2 (STR+8)
Rings - Pyrosoul x 2 (STR+14)
Back - Cuchulain's / Ceberus+1 (STR+4) ? I must have missed something here
Belt - Beir Belt+1 (STR+9)
Legs - Alcide's Sub+1 (STR+4)
Feets - Clout's Boots (STR+9)

What's yours and did I missed anything ? ><;

Rajas is better Pyrosoul for SA

Warwolf is better that Beir for SA

Heca subligar is way, way better than Alcide's for SA and probably somewhat better for TA also (4 STR 8 Attack in exchange for 8 DEX 20 ATT is a very bad tradeoff)

Raider's Boomerang will be more overall damage than thew bomblet.

I assume that you mean to stack it with SA.

Yeah I think Raja's is probably better but I'm no Mathmagician. (MATH IS MAGIC!)

Warwolf > Beir Belt +1 without a doubt.

I don't know If these are any better than Hecatomb +1 but these are pretty nice:

Teutates Subligar Rare Ex
[Legs] All Races
DEF:34 STR+8 Accuracy-10 Evasion-10
LV 78 WAR RDM THF PLD DRK BST BRD RNG SAM NIN DRG BLU COR DNC

Since its a 1 hit WS the accuracy down doesn't mean too much when you use SA... With all the ACC the game has available now, it shouldn't be that bad at all really.

I'm also still not too certain that Clout Boots would be much better than Hecatomb Leggings +1

Hct. Leggings +1 Rare Ex
[Feet] All Races
DEF:23 HP+9 STR+7 DEX+4 Slow +6%
LV 73 WAR THF PLD DRK BST BRD DRG

Vs

Clout boots RareExclusive
[Feet] All Races
DEF: 22 HP -22 STR +9 "Store TP" -7
Lv. 79 WAR / THF / PLD / DRK / BST / BRD / DRG

Seems like a close call, probably just go with what you can get.
With the upcoming synergy Augments, the Hecatomb pieces are only going to get better.

Though I don't have heca legs+1, this subligar would lose to the +att of Heca (or even Tumbler trunks +5dex +18att)especially stacked with SA. I played around with it for a while after getting one during the many carabosse my LS was doing, but in the end was not satisfied with them over the tumbler trunks I'm currently using.

Only other back option I know of would be Atheling Mantle (+20att 3%DA) and Heca +1 feet would win over Clout's when stacked with SA.

While going Str build is the way to go for Mercy Stroke, you don't want to ignore pieces that have str+dex or str+agi due to how Dex affects SA and agi affects TA.
