While we're looking at alternative gear / sidegrades, you may want to consider adding Iota Ring
for those who do Einherjar. Loss of a half-point of acc in exchange for +3 DEX/VIT/AGI, versus other 5 ACC rings.
much like ethereal earring (which gives you ATT when you really don't need it--ie when the EVA is helping--and EVA when you really don't need it--ie when the ATT is helping), i don't see the point of iota ring. you don't need ACC vs stuff that you can evade, and you don't need DEF either, usually (counterstance). 3DEX won't do anything to your crit rate, most likely (and if it DOES do a lot for your crit rate, you're using an lolDEX build and probably sucking).
actually, i just figured out a time where getting iota ring would make sense. you're a player who wants as much VIT as possible in their chakra macro. you also chose either non-rajas or non-ulthalam, and don't expect to buy sniper+1. in that situation, iota saves an inventory slot for a (possible) marginal DoT loss.
"what's the difference b/w 3DEX 3ACC and 5ACC anyway?"
if your total DEX ends up odd, 3DEX 3ACC is giving you 4ACC, if it ends up even, it's giving you 5ACC. the difference b/w 5ACC and 5ACC is, you guessed it, nothing. 1 ACC gives .5ACC%, which is probably around .6% DoT depending on your ACC%. it's not at all a big deal, but it's a pointless loss to absorb in my opinion. lv75-equip means no ACC ring for lv cap or later lv40 jobs, so i think iota ring fails.
