/toss blitzer poelyn!

WHOO! after about 120ish tries at bestia breeches, finally got a 4% haste, -1% breath damage pair! Far from perfect 4% haste and +str stuff, but the base stats of 3dex, 3atk with 4% haste is plenty good enough for now ^_^

I LOVE my drg TP set now. 25% haste WHILE using atheling (instead of lancers mantle) and mars ring (instead of blitz!) Now i just need ONE more card and I can +2 my lancer body....then the REAL fun begins with a 25% haste, 5hit build using my OAT Corsesca+2! I am so psyched!

Don't you need 26% haste for gear cap?

Congratulations by the way!

Well technically yeah, but the last 1% in gear is only like 0.4% or some such in actual effect. Thats not much gain for a lot of tradeoff to scrape off that last % in most cases. For me it would mean trading Atheling mantle for lancers (eww) or trading mars ring for Blitz (also eww). I am basically content to chill at 25% as the last % is so minor and no gear that I would currently sacrifice for it. The only other option would be Velocious>Bullwhip (which i dont have now anyway.) That I might do. I would strongly consider dropping defensive stats for haste instead of my current options of sacing offense.

Congrats ben!
(Btw going from 25 to 26% haste is adding 0.6% basically. 1% haste on gear is really 10/1024 (little bit under), so 25% is 250/1024, and the cap of true 25% haste is 256/1024, for 6/1024=0.58% haste)

Tbh with Hasso and March, Blitz may well out-do Mars's Attack (Assuming Acc is capped, which it probably is). Pelerine still won't beat Atheling though.

Edit: I think this is correct anyway, I could be wrong... Some haste gears may have wierd different values (Someone somewhere said speed belt was 61/1024 maybe?)
I think to work it out, you'd have to look at each piece individually, it'll be rounded down to the nearest 1/1024, so like...
Head+2: 6% = 61.44 = 61
Ace's Hands 4% = 40.96 = 40%
etc, you'll end up somewhere between 250-256/1024, and that last 26th % haste should be that 256-that value.

I think.

Well, unfortunately for me I cant actually pull off 26% haste+5hit. I need to TP in hoard ring and (as you said) atheling>lancers so there is no where else to get haste from for me. Ultimately I would like to get a goading belt (instead of Vbelt) and TP in blitz for my 25% and get my 4str/dex back from hoard. Maybe ill go after a bullwhip /shrug we will see.

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.

/goes to make macros.

Don't forget when you're comparing the increase from going to 5hit (about 10% total) that half of the time you will be hitting 6hits per WS cycle anyway due to OAT and DA/TA anyway. It'd probably as much as half the effectiveness of it I'd think, maybe put it at around 5% increase. Compare that to the increase you would get from the other options in your 6hit, then make the choice!

I do love 5hitting though, I tried recently using Scorpion Queen. Upsettingly though, I parsed RR/GH/AO vs RR/GH/VV vs RR/GH/SQ, VV and AO were very close (mainly I think due to the length of time between pulls in the party) and both destroyed the SQ set, but I'm still not convinced... the other two did 100-110k damage over 60 mobs, and SQ set did 60kish. The time fram was the same (based on number of jumps) and number of kills was the same, but it got decimated so bad. I wasn't expecting it to win but nor was I expecting it to be almost doubled by the other two setups.

(Was with a normal lance, draconis I think. I'm still needing to work on my OAT lance. Have 4-5 Blobdingnag pops ready, 5/10 necklets and 11/20 habits)

Well I am pretty settled on going for a 5hit. I would WS in almost all that gear in a 6hit with the exception being Rose strap would have been pole grip so that is a TEENY TINY sacrifice. For TP gear, (currently) I am giving up
Thew>White tath
Mars(or Blitz 26%)>Hoard ring.
And of course pole>rose

Thats really it. Ideally, i get the goading belt that nets me my 4str/dex back. At that point i am really sacrificing VERY little to swing a 5 hit. I am 100% settled on 5hit as the way to go. It only gets confusing once I get a goading and a second potential 5hit build.

Goading+hoard=3/4 drakes=24% haste 5hit with -4str/dex.
Goading+blitz(or mars)=4/4 drakes=25% haste 5hit (or 24% with +8acc/atk)

That one I really dont know what to do. It is very difficult to pin down exact numbers with all the variables on that one. In abyssea ill do 4/4 drakes no prob thanks to VV. Outside however, I am not sure.

I imagine I will get a 'feel' for the 4/4 drakes version after using it for a while and see if i am stuck at 99/100 often enough to really irk me. With Drgs obscene acc right now, I dont see the extra 'buffer' of a 3/4 as necessary and that would leave me open to 3 possible builds to keep my haste up. (Goading+blitz25%, Hoard+Bullwhip26%, hoard+Vbelt25%) which I like.

Been a while since I posted here, have gotten quite a few things since then over the past month or so:

  • Vougier's Contus
  • +2 feet and hands
  • Blood Cuisses FINALLY. NMs drop double trigs now, and Kirin can be melee burned minus 2hrs with 1 party.
  • Bestia Breeches with +4% haste
  • Got to the Chloris bud stage of Rhongo. Not really an achievement (yet), but at least the truly annoying part is over


Been a pretty decent month I'd say.

Why not leave the Hoard Ring on(in abyssea fstr and ddex are both way beyond capped) and go monopolize Ovni on thf/dnc. Find a MNK friend to proc blue for you and you'll probably go 1/1. Sits you at 26% haste and 5 hit with capped fstr. Losing 3 attk/acc and gaining .6% haste.

5/5 +2 get! Finally finished up my last piece needed tonight.

That pretty much leaves me with just Rhongomiant left to finish. I'm swimming in dragua scales and ulhuadshi fangs (and my inventory is dying because of it ><). Hopefully if all goes well I'll be done with this godforsaken mandy soon and can finally see how awesome (or crappy) our empyrean weapon is. Will be nice to see how it can compete with our other options.

I've heard Ryunohige(90) pretty much reigns supreme now, with OaT 2nd and Gungnir crying alone in a corner somewhere. I have high hopes for Rhongo though, in that it will receive some kind of buff at higher lvls, or perhaps offer something unique to the job at 99 other than wheeling V2.

Speaking of empy WS, I read that Camlann's Torment > Drakesbane or Drakesbane > Camlann's Torment can make light. Any truth to that? It could certainly give Rhongo a bit of an edge when compared to our other options if true.

I drop to RD/WC brd's troubadour to save waiting 10mins. People didn't pass wlegs before drop, I wasn't paying attention, wlegs drop to someone else. sh*t. My 2nd pop, feeling pretty down: Wlegs again! (And a 350k shining cloth to boot). Feeling pretty lucky.

Laziness. Trophies you get as a by-product of doing other NMs that I'll be killing anyway.

It would. I actually didn't know Ace's Hose existed, just spammed trophies since it was easier-ish. Though I figured nothing would likely come of it. Just now however, Augment: MP +3, Haste +4.

Ok, then, just got Apoc atma. On another note, RR/VV/Apoc or RR/Apoc/Lion(10% TA -10% PDT +50 Lightning element attack)

Don't have VV yet, but I'm really digging 25% TA on stuff like jumps for instant 100% tp

Skanda Boots


Who knows, maybe they're different from AF in some way and affect spirit/soul jump.

Havent updated in a while (then again not much to update):

Wlegs O! Drg is no longer SLOOOOOWGA!

Also, the 'big' news is I have officially started working on a Ryunohige (Mythic lance). Started 'officially' a week ago last sunday and am proud to report after 1 week: 2,793/30,000 alex. I have also begun going through all the assaults from start to finish (for my second char) so that he can assist me on my remaining assaults for captain and then repeat the whole thing over (also to start climbing nyzul on him so he can 'enter' me with his tokens and i wont waste my own).

Overall it is going pretty well. I had a decent chunk done before I started with the major hurtles still the tokens/assaults/alex and VNM trophies.

End of Week 1 progress:

*Alexandrite 2793/30,000
*Tau Kings 3/3
*Salvage Bosses 4/4
*Odin 1/1
*Nyzul Tokens 26k/150k
*Eyepatch 100k/100k
*Assault 32/100
*ZNM Trophys 0/3

Got my +2 feet, if you have the full set, is it worth jumping in for the 10% chance of Double damage? Most of the af3 has decent stats on it and with 25% chance to TA, could break 4k with jumps if ODD procs.

You want to Spirit/soul jump in at least 4/5 (new)AF anyway. Body cuz its awesome. Legs cuz they are more awesome(10% crit damage on a 100% crit jump+atk+str=win). Feet cuz they are awesome and have a spirit jump enhancement, hands cuz they are awesome.

You could just pop the head in for the bonus. It isnt 'terrible' by any means. It has similar levels of atk/acc as something like twilight, but just lacks the raw str to also up base damage. In a vacuum, twilight is better, but its not by a huge margin. You could get away with swapping the helms for the set bonus. It wont be an OMGBBQWTF big differences, but basically cutting a smidge of normal damage for a better shot at the set proc.

Im not sure which is better in the long run for damage since I dont know the exact set proc rate, but its probably nominal either way and can get away with it. Moreso if you dont have a twilight helm since its the only real competitive piece.

I hear the proc rate is about 10% or 2% per piece. Ty for the info, I forgot that quickly how good the hands were, using heca atm for ws as I'm 1/8 on the +1 and 3/6 on +2 should be getting the other 3 cards soon. I was still using heca over my +2 feet but I only recently got them.

Not a specific achievement, just an update. It has now been just over 1 month since i 'officially' started my Ryunohige and have made more progress than I had initially thought I would.

*Alexandrite 5848/30,000 (19.5%)
*Tau Kings 3/3
*Salvage Bosses 4/4
*Odin 1/1
*Nyzul Tokens 41k/150k (27%)
*Eyepatch 100k/100k
*Assault 35/100 (35%)
*ZNM Trophys 0/3

I have primarily made the largest gains in my alex count which was at 0 a month ago and now closing on 20% completion. Also pretty good pace on my nyzul tokens as I only has 20 somethin when i started up to 41. I have done more assaults that dont show up because I am taking a mule from start to captain so i can take him with me for the higher ones. I repeated a lot I had already done in assault, so progress there, but doesnt really show up here.

After really getting into this a good chunk, I am confident I can actually do this now! So it is just a matter of time. Aiming for completion around Xmas time this year to be (according to the census) #26 Ryunohige ^_^

Cant wait!

+1/2 Hands and +2 legs, along with about a dozen atma and several abyssite. Almost got all of them, just 4 left to collect.

Congratulations on all the progress you've made so far in only a month, gl with the rest of it :) They are supposed to be making alex easier to get by revamping salvage to try and get more people doing it, aren't they?
