Currently what I have for DRG is:
271 Polearm skill (yeah not capped yet )
1 x Angon merit
2 x Polearm Skill merit
4 x Crit merit
2 x STR merit
4 x MP merit
Q1: My merit plan is 8 x Polearm Skill -> 5 x Jump Recast-> 5 x Super Jump Recast-> 5 x Angon
-> 5 x STR ->5 x Deep Breathing
WHM, NIN, SAM, WAR, BLU, BLM, THF 37+as sub
Q2: Do I need another sub under certain situation? Such as RDM for the 6mp cost Barspells.
Haven't tested yet so idk which sub is the best, /blu is kinda great for solo and I do love it.
WS: Drakesbane and Impulse Drive both obtianed.
Q3: Working on Light Gorget for Drakesbane and Wheeling Thust now, do I also need Shadow Gorget for Penta?
Obtained: Cletine, Thalassocrat
Working on: Valkyrie's Fork (The fork is actually close to me.)
Q4: Can I toss Cletine and sell Thalassocrat after obtaining Valkyrie's Fork? I know the Fork should
outdmg them both but still dunno if I should keep Thalassocrat for Zerg battles, like Einhejar
bosses and Bahamut V2, KV etc.
Pole Grip all the time.
Smart Generade (I know it's crappy but don't think it's too bad...)
Chivalrous Chain only...
Not sure if I need the STR and DEX + 4 neck piece from Einhejar.
Working on: Light Gorget, Love Torque
Q5: which one would be better for WS?
Obtained: Brutal, Assault, Fowling, Minuet
Working on Dragoon's Earring from ZNM.
Amemet +1, I know Forager is better, but that Amemet +1 is signed by my best friend (in game
and IRL), don't wanna replace it with just one STR boost, unless I'm rich enough to get Chuchucian
Swift Belt, Potential Belt and Warwolf Belt
Q6: I use Swift Belt for TP, but can't decide which one for WS... Any suggestions?
Rajas Ring, Iota Ring, Flame Ring
Q7: Rajas Ring full time, Iota Ring for TP and Flame Ring for WS, is that correct?
Obtained: Warlaha Turban, Voyager Sallet, O. Hat, Saurian Helm (Macro in after WS, Will sell this
after I obtain Wyrm Helm)
Working on: Askar, Homam, Heca and maybe Ace's Helm.
Q8: I think Heca should be best for WS but which one is the best head piece for TP?
Obtained: Wyrm Mail, Scorpion Harness, Assault Jerkin, Wyvern Mail (The lvl 50 one, Pet HP + 50)
Currently I use SH for TP and Assault Jerkin for WS, Wyrm Mail for Call Wyvern and Wyvern Mail to
macro in for Healing Breath.
Working on: Askar Body for TP and...... Zahak's Mail maybe, but it's too expensive maybe, not
even to mention about Ares. Also I don't wanna waste money and LS point for Heca.
Obtained: Dusk for TP and Heca for WS
Working on: nothing atm, I know Homam is good but I'll target Homam legs first
Obtained: AF+1, Barone for Jump
Working on: Homam legs and W.legs for moving speed. Ares Legs on Plan too. N.legs is just too expensive in our LS.
Q9: Maybe have to use AF+1 for both TP and WS for a while, or should I use Barone for WS?
Obtained: Relic(Trash I guess), Dusk for TP and Marine F Boots for WS(STR and DEX+3), AF feet for Jump.
Working on: Heca for WS and Aurumn for TP.
Q10: Once I get Aurumn Feet, I wouldn't need Homam Feet, do I?
Q11: Zahak is 75 points, Valkyrie's Fork 100 Points, Love Torque 75 points, Ace's Helm 50 points,
N. leg 125 points. I have 180 ish LS points so far, which one to get first and second?
and... Herald Gaiters 100 points(I know DRG can't use it but no doubt i'll get it if I have the chance)
Q12: How do you rate my equipments? Assuming 100 is full score^^;
Thanks for your time to read this, guess I'd add more questions soon^^
Much appreciate if you can answer my questions, also I'm sorry for my poor English :/
Q1: I would do STR last. Having your DRG based merits finished first will do way more for you. As for Super Jump merits, haven't seen a lot of people max that out but it's fine if you do. Most people go for Jump and High Jump to keep the timers matching so you can do Jump/High Jump > Jump > Jump/High Jump without having to wait on timers. Again, full Super Jump merits are fine.
Q2: You are good on subs. /RDM is mainly used for solo's where you need to get the spell off as soon as possible. /WHM and /BLU is perfectly fine for almost anything you would go /mage for.
Q3: I would get it after you get one for Drakesbane. I still use Penta for some things, mostly mobs that are lower level that Colibri because Penta puts out better numbers on lower level stuff in most cases unless Drakes crits. I would say I use Drakes 80% of the time these days. Still need to get a light Gorget myself ><.
Q4: I would toss/sell anything I had once getting a V.Fork. For zerg fights a Thal's -Evasion is too random to fall back on.
Q5: Light Gorget, Love Torque is what you should be working on. Chiv is fine till then unless you want to buy a PCC.
Q6: Warwolf Belt is what I use for Drakes, Wheeling, and Penta.
Q7: Rajas fulltime is fine, Iota is fine(I use Woods since it's nice for lower level jobs), for WS I swap out my Woods for a Ruby Ring. Some people keep Rajas and an ACC ring fulltime depending on their other gear.
Q8: Askar, Turban, Ace's are all acceptable TP head pieces. You can even use Ace's and Askar fulltime if you wanted.
Q9: AF+1 legs are fine. Barone for WS is good depending on your total ACC. I use them fulltime till I get homan for TP and Askar for WS.
Q10: The difference between the 2 is small. If you plan on doing /mage a lot then Homan will do more for you since it's also a great Healing Breath piece.
Q11: I would get the V.Fork and the Love Torque. Second best weapon in the game (until we find out how well the Mythic Polearm really is), and the best TP neck you can use. There are other bodies out there that you can use plus with the new expansion body, you have even more choices to work with. Ace's helm is nice but others aren't that far behind and way easier to get.
Q12: 80/100 I guess. It's solid gear and you're working on upgrading which is good.
