Hi, I am sure there is a post about this I could necro, but was wondering, especially since there have been some new gear choices plopped down lately - what's the current stuff to aim for for Charged Whisker? Ideally I'm looking for some easily achievable stuff for the short term and suggestions for a really good set with stuff I might need to work on longer.

Also a reminder of what atmas to aim for.

Thanks, hope this isn't too obnoxious.

Ideal atmas are Lion / Blinding Horn / Ultimate. Don't be tempted to use Minikin; restore chests and ethers will give plenty of MP. Also don't forget to use Ascetic's Tonic / Enervation / Burst Affinity. I'll post my gearset below, which I know isn't perfect but isn't too terribly hard to get.

Chatoyant Staff / Thunder Sachet
Aias Bonnet / Kubira Beads / Moldavite Earring / Hecate's Earring
Loki's Kaftan / Mavi Bazubands +2 / Jupiter's Ring x2
Nifty Mantle / Thiazi's Belt / Mavi Tayt +2 / Mavi Basmak +2

Upgrades would be head and body to Toci's set, but Voidwatch isn't very kind with drop rates. The rings could also be +7, etc.

Once you get your CW so high, you don't really need to get it higher.

Even w/ 2x ice shikargar instead of jupiter's/chatoyant, I do 6.7k CW in aby...
I can break over 7k, but I"m doing ~2k on my WoR already... there just isn't anything w/ that much hp that you farm.

btw:
Ocelomeh headpiece is better
and artful belt/+1

So do you enervation > CW > WoR?

Also sadface don't have ANY of those atmas. Guess I know what I need to work on.

Having said that, I can't see myself getting Atma of the ultimate any time soon - is there one that isn't as good but is abyssea only?

Like Xilk said, you don't need to overkill anything. If I can still one-shot with minikin, I use it so I don't even have to give a second thought to MP or restore chests if I don't want to use the keys. (I usually just open all the blue boxes anyway.)

Generally, I'll see how I do without enervation/tonic(or memento mori)/fantod, etc. Then if I'm short, I'll start working buffs/debuffs in until I have to do as little as possible per pull. It gets very, very mind numbing after awhile, and the fewer steps, the longer I can go without burning out.

http://www.ffxiah.com/item-sets/229872 is my set, and it's by no means the best. It's pretty similar to Sebastion's, so you can extrapolate from the two of them what's good to use. Things like rajas and cuchulain's belt aren't best in slot, but they save inventory and, again, it doesn't matter as long as you can one-shot the group. I know, NQ ocelomeh. Not bothering unless I get Toci's.



Edit: Those atma are pretty standard. You won't have a very good time without at least Lion or Blinding Horn. Razed Ruins is actually better than Minikin. I'm not sure whether Baying Moon's +30 MAB would be better than RR's dex, to be honest. It would depend on how much MAB you already have. Hell's Guardian has the same +50 as Ultimate, but Proto-Ultima is easier than Pandemonium Warden, I would think.

I like to set everything so that I can switch between regular killing and AOE killing without too much trouble. So the only special spells I set are Dream Flower, Charged Whisker, WoR, Frypan, Blood Sabre. I don't bother with staff, because that just means I have to macro to change to sword for WoR since BLU has crap staff skill. Almace (+10 DEX)/Evasion Shikargar, ranged weapon, BLU AF3 +2 set, Hectates/Moldy, -PDT dark rings, Boxers mantle, Evasion Torque. Atmas: Minikin, Ultimate, RR. With this setup, I don't find it really helps that much to load up on DEX pieces, since I get +50 from RR, and another 75+ from cruor buffs. WoR with Efflux/CA, plus BA- Charged is enough to take out most mobs... a followup frypan usually takes care of the rest. When Unbridled learning is up, I'll usually do Thunderbolt so CW will definitely finish everything off. I'm not about seeing huge numbers... I just want to cleave as conveniently as possible, and have as much inventory space as I can to hold the loot I will get.

as far as atma goes, farming lion and blinding horn in abyssea is pretty straightforward.
Ultimate you can actually solo on your bst, but it will take a few weeks to solo farm a pop set because of the 3 day wait on limbus.

Hell's guardian is another option but much more challenging to get.

I'm not sure I have limbus access, that is what made me think I wouldn't be getting that one anytime soon. Anyway I'll start by working on lion and blinding horn and getting key bits of gear, then try it out and see.

I really appreciate the advice.

If you have access to sea, you have access to Limbus.

honestly with lion and blinding horn you can set whatever you want.
at most 90% of the mobs in any zone will take two hits. If they live sleep again or just kill off with gob rush, QC, frypan etc. (dex mods so those should be set)
