Augmented Osode Vs Tantra +1Follow

I am 8/10 on Body seals and will soon face the question of fulltiming the Tantra or using it as an impetus macro piece.

Tantra Cyclas +1 - 61 DEF, +12 ACC, +12 ATT, STR +8, VIT +8, Augments Impetus

Aug Kirin's Osode - 52 DEF, +7 ACC, +10 Stats, +50 Light, +2 Dual Wield

Ignoring stats that have no real meaning on MNK, we are left with:

+5 ACC, +12 ATT, Aug: Impetus Vs +2 STR, +2 VIT, +10 DEX, +10 AGI

So, essentially does +12 ATT beat out +2 STR, +10 DEX. My kneejerk reaction was Osode would still be better with Tantra as an impetus macro piece.

What atmas are you using? What WS? What food? What other gear? What are you fighting? I don't know if all of those things are necessarily going to matter, but kind of hard to say based just on what you've mentioned.

I would favor the attack inside abyssea, only because after atmas/enhancements we are close to capping accuracy but never seem to cap attack.

But like the above poster said we need more info to be better informed.

Gear - FFXIAH

Metasoma|----------|------|Thew Bomblet
Walahra |Chiv Chain|Brutal|Kemas
Kirin's | Aurore |Rajas |Heed
Ultion | Brown B |Aurore|Fuma

Atma - (RR, GH, Would-Be)

Food - Kabobs mostly

WS - No good crit WS, switch between Asuran and Backhand Blow, they seem to do comparable damage.

I've just really started Aby gearing. I've been rolling BLM/BRD for my LS, so I can start pushing out +1, but currently only my feet are finished for MNK. I love advice, so any constructive criticism is welcome.

Thanks in advance.

To Kyrria:

I would work on legs and hands+1 first since those seem to give most bang for the buck for you atm
Rings and earrings are fine until later when you can get Eponas Ring and Aesir pendant (not so much of a boost but all help)

After that it's all about af3+1 gear, then +2. Wear Fumas until a) get black belt and other haste gear to get 25% or b) get +2 legs, head, hands.

Ultion Matle should hold its own when tanking, for raw DD get an att mantle (amemet cheap, atheling is goal)

Neck can be uppgraded to Agasaya's or Faith torque (works best paired with af3+2 hands for base dmg)

For weapons I don't really know how well those compare to Furor/Taurine/Fire taipans, so that's for the math wizards to do :p (the Revenant Fists aren't so bad to get though, Verethragna is **** but worth it!)

Happy hunting!

If you want to improve performance, one tip I can give is to use two mantles.

Use your attack mantle mainly. And insert Ultion into your "perfect counter" macro so that it stacks with your AF3 head when you get it.

Depending on mob attack speed, or debuffs, I've never been convinced this is the best option. I have been thinking of revamping my Utsusemi: Ichi macro however for a PC Utsu Ichi macro instead of pressing PC > Ichi etc. I will put the mantle in while casting and have it macro'd out once its up. I really dont feel like a special equip/unequip macro just for PC when shadows are down however, or the times PC has carried over to the 2nd or 3rd time your shadows get ripped.
