Can someone post sets for samurai for the different things such as store tp set, weaponskill set and stuff. I dont mean the rare/ex endgame sky and sea stuff im more looking for the items which you can buy from the AH or get of NM's.

You're really limiting yourself if you don't do sky/sea/salvage, for a basic idea though:

tp
earring: fowling, minuet
ring: sniper/woodsman/ecphoria
belt: headlong?(new 3% haste belt)
legs: (this is your biggest hit) barbossa, dusk
feet: fulltime hachiman if you don't have rajas

WS
head: wyvern+1
earring: triumph+1, fowling
neck: bull
legs: fourth
feet: hachiman
ring: flamex2

Assuming you don't consider Zilart, CoP, ToAU, or Nyzul as endgame. Listed in order of importance (in my opinion anyway).
TP:

Weapon: Hagun, Soboro Sukehiro (CoP), Onimaru
Grip: Pole Grip, Rose Strap (Campaign, if it keeps your 6hit)
Ammo/Ranged: Black Tathlum (most likely unattainable unless you're loaded), Tiphia Sting, Lightning Bow +1
Head: Walahra Turban (bought with imperial coins), Askar Zucchetto (Nyzul)
Neck: Peacock Charm/Amulet (NM or AH), Chivalrous Chain, Spectacles
Ear: Bushinomimi (Zilart), Brutal Earring (CoP), Fowling Earring, Minuet Earring, Merman's Earring, Coral/Spike Earring
Body: Haubergeon (+1), Askar Korazin (Nyzul)

Ring: Rajas Ring (CoP), Toreador's, Snipers (+1), Ulthalam's Ring (ToAU), Blood Ring (ZNM tier 1), Woodsman, Ecphoria, Jaegar
Back: Cuchulain's Mantle, Forager's Mantle, Amemet Mantle +1
Waist: Speed Belt (see Black Tathlum x5), Velocious Belt (NM), Swift Belt (CoP), Headlong Belt, Potent Belt
Legs: Askar Dirs (Nyzul), Shinimusha Haidate is about all I can think of from AH
Feet: Fuma Sune-Ate

WS:
Weapon: same
Grip: same
Ammo: RSE sachet depending on your race
Head: Wyvern Helm
Neck: Bull Necklace (campaign), Chivalrous Chain (if it keeps 6hit over Bull), Spike Necklace
Ear: Bushinomimi (Zilart), Brutal Earring (CoP), Triumph Earring, Fowling Earring, Minuet Earring
Body: Kirin's Osode (bazaars), Hachiman Domaru, Haubergeon (+1)
Hands: Alkyoneuse's Bracelets, Pallas' Bracelets
Ring: Rajas (CoP), Flame/Triumph Ring, Ruby Ring
Back: Smilodon's Mantle +1
Waist: Warwolf Belt, Potent Belt

You tearsofblood from slyph? I used to be in same ls as you a long while ago.

A lot of good SAM gear can be bought from the AH or bazaar, you just have to spend the time farming up the gil for items like Hagun, Hauby+1 etc.

For your TP build, center it around making a 6HIT build (so after you ws, it takes you 5 hits to reach 100% tp again) with haste and as much ACC as you can aqueeze in.

attack and STR are not important at all for your TP builds.

for your WS build, just put STR into every slot. I'll list a basic ws bulid for a new SAM that finds himself struggling in Vanadiel.

Onimaru
Wyvern Helm, Spike Necklace, Fowling , ?
Hachiman Domaru, Pallas, ruby, ruby
smildon Mantle+1, Warwolf belt, SAM AF, Hachiman Sune-ate

Thats STR + 49 and a very basic ws set. Theres not many earrings SAM uses for WS, I can think of 4 of the top of my head - Brutal > Bushi = Triumph > Fowling

SAM gets big upgrades from finishing CoP (Rajas ring + Brutal), Ark Angels (Bushi) and spending hours upon hours in sky going after Byakko's Haidate, Osode and Shura Haidate.

You need to really focus on CoP - once your half way through, you can do the swift belt and Soboro NM's - both those pieces are huge pieces of gear for SAM.

I'm not going to lie - you have a huge up-hill battle to make your SAM good. With max sTP merits, you just need 11 sTP to make your 6HIT work, but without Rajas, your limited there too. You'll have to build TP in Hachi hands and feet until you get your Rajas ring.

You need to work on finishing mission story lines and making lots of gil for now. Once you have CoP, Ark Angels and mini-expansion's done - you'll be in a much better position




EDIT: for the latest mini-expansion ASA, ACC+7 Haste+3% would be an ideal option for you.

For the first mini expansion ACP, ACC+10 sTP+4 would be a great body piece for you. Remember - you can swap your rewards from those mini-expansions with relative ease if you ever needed to. But that body would allow you to wear Fuma's on your feet for TP build, meaning its a solid upgrade..

You should only be focusing on a STR WS set after you get Yukikaze. Before that, the only thing I ever changed was my Haste gear for acc/attack gear on WS (which was really only feet and waist at that level).

I know this is probably a dumb question. Am i supposed to have a tp set and then switch to a ws set when i use a ws, or do i need to have 2 different sets to use in different situations.

That's the reason why they are called "TP set" and "WS set" :P
