Looking for some advice here for Mercy Stroke. I've Googled, looked around, and experimented a little. Every single thread seems to vary at least slightly, even on forums populated with the same posters. So I'm turning to you guys, since f=245 posters seem to be well versed in maths and most of you are more experienced with the WS than I am. What is the VERY BEST in slot for each situation? Thanks for your thoughts.

Below is what I'm currently using, having just started to throw it together and been fairly broke since getting Mandau this week.

Unstacked:
Hecatomb Cap +1 (soon to be augmented)
Soil Gorget
Brutal Earring
Kemas Earring (obvious upgrade to better STR earring)
Kacura Harness (Toci's?)
Heafoc Mitts
Rajas Ring (go for Pyrosoul?)
Epona's Ring
Cuchulain's Mantle (seen Atheling and all sorts of others mentioned)
Shadow Belt (can also get Prosilio Belt? Windbuffet?)
Teutates Subligar (is Whirldwind the best?)
Hecatomb Leggings (going to get another pair +1'd and augmented, I think)

For SAMS, I change::
Loki's Kaftan
Raider's Armlets +2

For TAMS, I change:
Loki's Kaftan
Rog. Armlets +1

I don't know if you'd want to use mercy stroke unstacked.

Sure, I don't now that I'm done with WS kill trials. It was offered as a baseline for the WS, and the specific swaps for SA/TA are below.

Well, evidently no one's reading or feels like contributing here on Alla (the THF Forums do seem pretty dead here anymore). Here is what I was advised on BG, in case anyone Googles for the same thing:

Brutal Earring would be good in situation where you're not stacking it with Assassin's Charge. If you're using Assassin's Charge, you're better off using another Vulcan's.

brutal earring is actually kind of useless when using a proscilo belt since it will negate it and then your only DA would come from heca cap+1 augment, toci's, whirlwind dirs and maybe atheling mantle but cerb mantle+1 or vigilance mantle +1 is probably a better choice for cape

DA isn't worth that much anyway with the amount of triple attack thf gets on top of assassin's charge...
