With the SAM forums basically dead, I figured I would post this here just to try and get something going. I finally got around to finishing my Unkai Domaru+2, and the added Store TP from it is going to let me switch from Goading to Bullwhip belt. It occurred to me to wonder where else I could make improvements. Ultimately I want to keep a true 5-hit, since I mostly play my SAM outside of Abyssea, with capped Haste. I also want to maximize my damage as much as possible. I've played around with Kinematics's spreadsheets a lot, and I just can't seem to come up a definitive set. So I figure I would ask the community what the current standards are and what I should be aiming for. Here are my current basic sets:
Total Store TP: 52 (21.5 TP/hit), Total Gear Haste: 21%
Total Store TP: 17 (17.4 TP/hit)
Some upgrades I know I want to make are Centaurus to Attack/TP Bonus Moonshade for WS, and I need to go turn that Goading in to a Bullwhip. Some gear I have available but not currently using on SAM: Unkai Mimikazari and Ace's Mufflers. I am considering getting a White Tathlum for my TP build which would let me use my Ace's Mufflers. I know I could simply turn the Dusk in to +1 for more haste and attack, but I would rather not drop 4 mil on them if I can avoid it. I could also simply /DRG and easily hit the haste cap with Wyvern earring, but I prefer to stay /WAR for double attack and berserk purposes. I'd love to be able to get rid of the Hoard Ring and Rose Strap since neither brings anything to me but Store TP and/or negative stats. Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.
