Thinking of ReturningFollow

I quit playing for a while earlier and even deleted Nebo about 3 months back but if I can get him restored I think I'll be coming back soon.

I have been lurking the forums a bit lately and I see that a lot of you have been doing AOE WS farming with AE. I'm glad that people have been finding successs with it. I remember that not a lot of people thought it would be viable when I first brought it up in this thread.

I am curious as to the atmas and gear sets you are using. Before I left I was considering making 2x MAB Kila's but I have seen a few threads that say Martial Knife is better?

I'm curious as to your experiences with what works/doesn't etc.

Martial Knife or the TP Bonus fusetto (Mainhand only) are indeed the best. You can use either a multi-hit or a MAB Kila in the offhand to good effect. (I prefer multihit as it helps with the WS rate alot).

As far as atma try to get Ultimate/Gales/Baying Moon if nothing else, all three are pretty easy gets, as opposed to the PW one.

I haven't checked atma in a while for AE but I believe Ultimate/Gales/PW atma is the end be all for AE spamming.

You did call it however, for farming KIs, AE farming is one of the best, cataclysm being another amazing KI farming WS.

exxxxccccellent.

The idea of not having to do two more full magian dagger trials pleases me.

DO you have a seperate AE WS set? Seems like inventory would be an issue there for me O.o

IF so, do you gear DEX or INT? I recall someone saying they had higher results with a SA set but I can;t remember for the life of me.

If you want to get the most out of AE you definately need to make a set for it. THF has some decent options for MAB actually.

I use Artemis' Medal or Soil Gorget, Moldavite Earring, Hecate's Earring, Denali Kecks, Breeze Belt, and an augmented Demon Ring with +2 MAB, the rest is pretty much just DEX gear. On normal mobs with no MAB atmas I usually do between 550 and 700 damage now, when I put MAB atmas up (I just have gales and ultimate, got red on Beyond the other day, but we actually wiped because no one took the copies and ran them off and we only had 1 healer), I usually get about 1300-1400. I should do some MAB daggers or a Fusetto with TP bonus, but I am sick of magian trials.

I personally have a MAB+4 Dragon Harness, Novio/Moldavite (No Hecate ; ;), aquiline belt, uggalepih pendant, denali kecks, WS dmg +2 hat I use for AE, with DEX/INT in every place I can't get MAB. I don't carry it around fulltime, it's in my satchel until I start AE farming. Then I remove my physical Evis gear and add those few pieces. I would go with INT first, then DEX by the way. While dINT is almost always capped in abyssea, it still covers just in case it isn't, and either way the mods are the exact same.

With dit capped and the mods being the same where do you equip int where you can't equip more dex in the slot? Rings?

Other jobs besides THF can use AE so that's not a bad rule to go by, you know.

For THF with all their gear squared away there's not anything I can think of, but speaking about AE in a general sense, well.. RDM can use it too you know, as can NIN.

Returning players may also have the best DEX pieces but have some nice INT pieces from other jobs.

Basic stat rings have always had the same bonus barring various BC/NM rings, which were never the "max" on ring stats anyway, so no, not rings. :P

I've been seeing reports that the TP bonus fussetto's work in the off hand. Does this mean that Martial knife + TP bonus Magian daggers = 300 TP AE at 100 TP?

Has this been tested?

Still waiting on the character reactivation service to come back online.
