I realize that I'm a bit behind the time with this post, but with ACP 11 coming up this week, I've started to think of what augments I should put on the Nuevo.

Please forgive me if this topic is verboten in the SAM community, but I'm coming back from a bit of a hiatus and don't haven't seen any recent threads that ended in a "I swear to God, one more of these threads and I quit" level of discourse.

My gear setups are as follow:
*TP Gear
*WS Gear
*PentaSpam Gear

tl;dr = Hauby +1, non-Rajas 6-hit (working on CoP!), Merits are in order (capped Store TP, GKT, Overwhelm, Meditate Recast, etc etc). What do I do with Nuevo?

After looking at the available augments, I can't really think of a use for this reward on my SAM that isn't situational or macro-onry, at best. I toyed with the idea of EVA +10 and ACC+10 for a soloing piece, or EVA+10 and Fast Cast for a /NIN macro piece (which would shave off... 1 second, generously, from the Utsu recast timers) but second guessed them both.

Is there any real place in my gearswaps for this on my SAM, or would I be better served to grab the Mirke Wardecors for my BST (next planned job to 75)?

unfortunately, without rajas, you can't really make an ACC/sTP that beats haub+hachiman. ATT+10/DA+2 would be okay in the generally small amount of situations where you fight weak sh*t and cap ACC (various city dynamis, limbus, lower salvage, nyzul assault, supposedly-campaign-but-i-don't-know). that feels like a real waste to me (especially since osode would do that job just fine, as does haub+1 when you come down to it, or askar body).

if you're SAM only, i wouldn't get anything... i guess you could... RATT/RACC for occasional SAM/RNG? also a waste. i can't think of a use.

nothing comes to mind given your situation, get a pole grip for Hagun though.

There are only 3 applications for nuevo:

1) Acc and sTP +4 if that makes it your 6-hit piece

2) Acc and DW if you dual wield.

3) Fastcast and Enmity for spellcasting on PLD.

Hauby is equal and hauby+1 better than anything else. For the Atk and Double attack suggestion, you can just use askar.

Thanks for the comments, all. Looks like I'll be camping my replacement Tungi again soon >.<

Think about the STP option this way.

Will it get you out of any other piece of STP gear and into Haste or Acc in that slot?
