Oh hoarde ring? I thought you said you used mars?
I used mars before my +2 body as I could only get a 6hit. I now have the option to use hoard ring (and other stp gear) and pull off a 5hit as of getting +2 last night. I havent actually made the macros yet. I have been toying with the STP numbers to optimize my build. Currently what I am planning on is:
WS=35stp (/sam, body+2, Raja, Rose, Brutal)
TP=41stp (/sam, body+2, Raja, Rose, Brutal, white tath, Hoard ring)
This will land me at 100.1 after a 4hit drakes and is the best I can really do right now without using food or sacrificing more haste gear (aces sabatons). I also like this build because it doesnt gimp WS damage in the slightest and only a small hit during TP.
Once I get a goading, I will have a little flexibility to drop hoard for blitz and get my 4str/dex back during TP and the option to get a 5hit after only a 3/4 hit drakes for greater consistency, though I will have to drop to 24% haste to do so using both goading+hoard. Not sure If I will go that route. I certainly wont in abyssea since a single regain tic makes STP builds designed to this exactness unneccesary. Outside however.......
For now, I am going to thoroughly enjoy a 5 hit following a 4/4 drakes spam. Chances are between spirit jump with +2 boots (add 5 or 6 tp), meditate tics and conserve tp kicking in, and just getting a DA proc on OAT lance shooting me past 100, it will be very rare that I dont land a 4/4 AND one of those dont go off to fix it back up. I imagine the times I am stuck at 99 TP will be VERY rare.
