I think clear mind sets could use some more mention...
Sure, do you remember where you fit the spells in? I never bothered with it much since they take up too much space. Early levels you don't have enough MP for it to matter much and you don't want to rest too much once you break into AU areas, as you'll lose your TP (may as well just throw on your Dark Staff) resting.
Personally, I found TA sickle slash to be the ideal choice for this. It was even my bread and butter for dmg along with jet stream. Don't know if that would earn a spot in your guide since I might be the only one feeling this way, but I thought I should put it out there.
Cool, thanks for the input! Leaving SS in would be better, I agree, just gotta shuffle points around a bit more since it's BMP4 compared to MB's BMP2.
I would also add Crow/Raven for the legs spot for those of us who can't stand wearing subligar, its good for spell casting too with the -enmity since the +atk won't help it at all.
Good idea also.
I'm all for not exping in AF, but I do have to say in the defense of the poor, the keffiyeh and charuqs are probably the hardest pieces to replace. I have a pair of leaping boots, and HQ Tabin Boots aren't THAT expensive, but since I just joined a limbus LS (yay I have sea access) I can't afford to drop 50k on a pair of boots. And Charuqs probably beat out NQ Tabin Boots, at least in my opinion. Shalwar versus PubSub, I think is a matter of choice - I got tired of my naked legs and underwear fast.
Yea, I hear ya but if you have time to farm for spells, you should have time to farm for gil as well. Walkure Mask and Tabin Boots will run you ~50k for the pair on Bismarck these days for a nice improvement over AF. Republigar, yea... I understand where you're coming from about looking at legs for that long. Then again I'm Mithra, so I never minded!
