As the name suggests i am looking to attempt to upgrade my SAM gear as well as testing out reasonable suggestions. If anyone has any idea please post them.
My current gear is the following:

TP:

Main: Hagun
Grip: Pole Grip
Ranged: ---
Ammo: Olbi. Satchet
Head: Ace's Helm
Neck: Justice Torque
Ear1: Brutal
Ear2: Bushi
Body: Askar K.
Hands: Dusk
Ring1: Raja's
Ring2: Echopia
Back: Forager's
Belt: Swift
Legs: Byakkos
Feet: Fuma

WS:

Main: Hagun
Grip: Pole Grip
Ranged: ---
Ammo: Olbi. Satchet
Head: Gnad. Helm
Neck: Aqua/Dark Gorget
Ear1: Brutal
Ear2: Bushi
Body: Hauby+1
Hands: Alky braclets
Ring1: Raja
Ring2: Flame
Back: Smil+1
Belt: Warwolf
Legs: Shura
Feet: Rutter

Just as a note my gear does support a WS +5hit build (6hit) currently (which has quite a few friends wondering how...) however i was looking to see if i could gear it better. Current suggestions that i know are obvious would be speed/velo belt and usukane feet.

Thank you for any suggestions made.

Aside for the upgrades you already mentioned, I'd say:

Ear2: you'll most likely be playing /DRG often, so Wyvern Earring must be ready for when you do;
Body: Haubergeon (+1); to do this you'll also need to switch your grip to
Grip: Rose strap;

There are other possible ways to upgrade from Askar Korazin to Haubergeon (like switching boots to Nobushi Kyahan) but I believe it's been shown somewhere around here that switching the Grip is a lot better, since you'll be keeping the haste. Anyway, the most obvious upgrade would be Usukane Sune-ate + Haubergeon (+1) + Ulthalam's Ring

WS gear looks great, you're only missing a Gorget for Yukikaze

Very late edit: duh, I didn't even notice on your WS gear that you had Haubergeon +1 listed. Puts me to wonder why you're not using that on your TP set. For WS tho, you'll want to switch that for an Osode, or Hachiman Domaru at least.

This.

By using askar body over hauby+1 you're losing 16-17 accuracy. Unless you're already capping acc (which, on anything that matters, you are not), this is a huge loss to DoT.

Sniper +1 (or any upgrade to the Ecphoria's ACC) is fine also, Ulthalam's was just a quick example of a side upgrade for when you don't need Ecphoria's +sTP anymore.

This was answered on my 1st reply to you. Rose Strap will keep you from losing the 6hit ^^

Also, my god why...WHY ;;...Domaru...Oosde...WHY MUST YOU TORMENT ME DEAR LORD WHYYYY....i ranted please read if not whole thing skip to bottom...Rant here!..../crys in corner

That thread explains well enough why Osode (and even Domaru) is better, so I don't mean to duplicate the discussion to this one. But just a quick hint: they call it lolDomaru because when it was released, a bunch of silly SAMs used to TP with it ;)

Doesn't matter tho, I think it'll be a bit more important for you to get that TP set going 1st of all.

Job traits and merits (35), rajas (5), rose strap (4) and brutal (1) gives you 45 for TP, meaning you'll have 83tp in 5 hits.

Job traits and merits (35), rajas (5), rose strap (4), brutal (1) and hachiman domaru (6) gives you 50 for WS, meaning the WS hit will give you 17.2tp, bringing you to 100.2tp in 6 hits. Done.

This doesn't work. Do you even have any idea how much Shinta and Pahn have done for the entire fucking FFXI community?
