I'm in need of some advice/justification/affirmation on current gear, any help would be really great.

I currently have the following:

Lv 55 SAM

Weapon: Koryukagemitsu
Sub: Mythril Grip +1
Ranged: Lightning Bow
Ammo: RSE Sachet [STR +2; if not pulling]
Head: Empress Hairpin (TP) & Luisant Salade (WS)
Neck: Peacock Amulet
Body: Jaridah Peti (TP) & Royal Knight's Chainmail (WS)
Legs: Royal Knight's Breeches
Hands: Ochimusha Kote (TP) [or Jaridah Bazubands, ACC if needed] & Luisant Moufles (WS)
Feet: Sarutobi Kyahan or Bounding Boots (ACC if needed)
Back: Accura Cape (TP) & Royal Army Mantle (WS)
Waist: Life Belt (TP) [or Headlong Belt] & Vanguard Belt (WS)
Ear: Spike Earring (x2)
Finger: Snipers/Woodsman (TP) & Rajas/Victory (WS)


I'm working on Luisant feet, but AH is never in stock and I just missed the other day. I have a bunch of 60 stuff already.

Currently using Rice Dumplings or Pizza for food depending on mob.

Any pointers?

Thanks so much!!!

You shouldn't really have a "WS set" until you get Yuki, everything you need in a tp set you also need on WS except for haste. The STR mods on enpi/jinpu just aren't very good (particularly since they get floored twice), and the multihit nature means you can't depend on the first hit bonus, same for penta.

Loose all the luisant currently in use.
weapon-> battle/spark fork (+1) for birds w/ penta until 60, dotanuki is also a good choice
head-> walk/valk
Body-> probably better to stick with just peti
hands-> Okote, even if your acc isn't amazing
feet-> sarutobi(tp), luisant/fed khahan (WS)
rings-> sniper/wood (tp+WS)

?

of course this all changes at 60 if you switch to GK for Yuki instead of sticking with Polearm. If you can, pick up a soboro too, it's freaking amazing.

Ah, that was supposed to be Accura Cape.

Thanks for the advice! I'll certainly change a few things around.

headlong if you're using sushi/pizza, life otherwise, swift always once you get it (assuming acc> ~80%, otherwise replace headlong w/ swift and follow the above rule).

Headlong, you've got the gear to support it particularly with Zanshin III. Swift when you get it.
