Just to avoid being a complete derail: on the op subject.
For TP ditch the justice, warworlf and haub for specs/pcc/chiv, swift, and haub+1. No one expects you to have dusk+1 and a speed belt but those are all decently easy to get upgrades.
Also I share your pain in having to take off the justice torque. My drk hates GS for this reason.
Now back onto the more entertaining side of this thread, the parse hoopla.
Meriting with relics and insanely buffed DD's is fun as hell. I love raping pink fluff with 1200 guillos in brd+cor parties while im cramming meat down bird's throats.
But THIS made me fukken lol my balls off
everyone knew about it Buffs were Min/March Chaos/Sam's.
Fatty numbers are sweet but getting more exp is even sweeter. People who are geared well enough, play agressive enough and can keep perma chain with just one offensive roll should probably get 1 DD roll and the 2nd coming of the eucharist itself known as Corsair's Roll. It's free goddamn exp for god's sakes.
If DD's ask for two offensive rolls it's because they can't keep chain, which I would think is impossible with yoichi, super sam and 'well geared' drk man. Or it's because they wanna stroke their e-peens. Either way it sounds like a waste of people's time or a waste of a great meriting opportunity.
I suppose if you were just doing it for fun then it's fine so long as everyone in the party is on board and just doing it for lols. Maybe I just take meriting to be serious bussiness when I see a strong party. /shrug
