Killing Trash Outside Aby~Follow

Curious on preferred gear for the fastest kills on EP mobs outside of Aby. I'm leveling my BLM sub on alt account via GoV in Oubliette. Worked amazing for Whm to 75 and Sch to 51, now to do Blm 18-whenever I get bored. Skilling was fun, so that's not an issue. Plus it's mostly just for /blm on whm anyhow.

I long ago forgot the formula for pdif and all that for mobs that are weaker than you, did you want str/atk etc. I also want to heal as little as possible so eva seems neat, but not at cost to better stats.

Current gear selections for melee and ws's.
(level 91 Nin)
Weaps: Sekirei/Kamome (at 93 I snagged a Ban for fun)
Ammo: Qirmiz Tathlum
Head: Iga+1 and Varangian Helm
Neck: Agasaya Collar and Rancor Collar
Ears: Bushi/Brutal
Body: Kirin's Osode / Alcide's Harness / AF1 / Aurore / lolShura Togi *edit* / Koga Chainmail (forgot I had that)
Hands: Aurore / Iga +1
Rings: Raja / Heed / Airy / Spiral
Back: Atheling
Waist: Twilight / Breeze Belt
Legs: Iga+1 and Tumbler Trunks
Legs: Iga+1 and Ballerines

I figured Meatkabobs would suffice for the attack and str, but as for which to wear or not wear? I have no idea. I'm trying to get Nin to be a job I don't hate, but it's hard. It's an expensive job that until you finish it, struggles to keep up. I can out tank and out DPS my friend's decently geared Nin on Dnc or Thf without trouble... but some Nins blow me away. I'm below any of those on my Nin. So advice to help me become a Nin worthy of tanking more than seal NM's would be great ^^;
(mind you, if you mention +2's take into account that if I can't solo/2box it, I won't get it done most likely)

*editing the below edit*
*edit* And outside of Aby, is Jin still top or does Kamu Ku beat it due to hits?
See how much I know right now? :(

>You can easily 2box all of your Iga+2 with NIN + WHM, make that a priority.

>Suppanomimi is 5% Dual Wield, if you intend to play NIN at all (or any job that Dual Wields), it's best in slot by a mile, DM is easy these days, trade that Bushi in.

>Don't be fooled by the big numbers on other body pieces; Ninja Chainmail > everything for TP.

>Weapons depend on how much time and effort you want to put into it; you can 2box a Kannagi given enough time, but what you're using is just fine; just make sure you're offhanding that Kamome. AGI/Evasion Sekka+3 is a fantastic weapon to have and easy to make; STR/Attack is the best damage you'll find sans Kannagi.

>I haven't used Jin in ages so I can't really recommend particular gear without sifting through FFXIAH for an hour, but here's some guidelines.

-Chance of critical varies with TP means it's a critical WS; maxing your critical rate is the best way to increase your damage on this WS. As such, the very best stat you can equip for Jin is Critical rate +. Rancor Collar kicks ***, as does Iga body.

-After that, you can add to your crit rate by capping your dDEX (Your DEX - Target DEX). Base critical rate is 5%, max is 25% at 50 dDEX; so in other words, you want to stack DEX first and foremost to ensure that your critical rate is capped. For most old content, mobs have around 70~90 DEX depending on job / level, so you want to aim in the 130~140 range, which shouldn't be too hard. Byakko's Haidate are easier than ever to acquire and are a very good choice to help you get there.

-After that, STR, Double Attack, Attack are all good stats, generally just go with whatever gives you the most bang for your buck in a slot.

MACC is a joke, any job with access to mage gear can hit close the MACC cap on legion mobs, which is why my BRD/RDM can land slow/para/blind despite having only 150 skill (from /RDM.)
