Whats an appropriate body for Victory Smite

Just posting this to help a friend.

Ok im sure lots of people have run into this. Instead of people giving good advice, people make predictions or assume something will work this way. Its hard to ask a random person because 9/10 the person you could be talking to is wearing full Aurore set. But, as I have learned over my 10 years of having an active ffxi account... gear doesn't make the job. I found that the ones who make this choices are usually the people who don't even have the job leveled.

So doing this research for a friend Ive heard people say this...

That its good to stack Dex or critical hit gear or both to help with spike dmg and str anywear else. SO with that setup, you'd have better chances of doing more dmg even though the modifier is STR.

As normal, most people stack str and attack.

Now body choices...

Juogi, Alcides +1, and the Monk AF3


Alcide's Harness +1
[Body] All Races
DEF:51 STR+6 Accuracy+11 Evasion+11 "Subtle Blow"+3 Increases critical hit damage
LV 87 MNK THF BST RNG NIN BLU COR PUP DNC

I was thinking... With this body, you'd get Crit dmg increase as well as the STR for the modifier.


Juogi
[Body] All Races
DEF:52 Accuracy+15 Critical hit rate +3% "Double Attack"+4%
LV 80 MNK SAM NIN PUP

Juogi +1
[Body] All Races
DEF:53 Accuracy+16 Critical hit rate +4% "Double Attack"+5%

This would help as far as modier, Mnk gets well over the accuracy build, so that's not an issue. Crit rate is good to increase chances of spike dmg. not to mention the extra double attack.

So now with this said.. my question... what is the best piece to Victory smite in.

To quit before you start would make the start of something poor. Your only as good as the effort you put in.

Didn't want to make a new thread; what're the accepted atma sets for a standard Verethragna monk, full af3+2, black belt? I assume there'd be one for all-out DD and one with GH for counter against bosses you want to mitigate a bit more damage, but I don't know.

I always use GH, personally. Next best crit atma after Razed Ruins, and those two bring the crit rate around the point where you don't need to devote a 3rd atma to it. Everything else on the atma is gravy (but yet actually useful too)
