the list is small, but pretty big upgrade for us because they added the Askar/Denali/Goliard+1~5 sets (renamed), and rather than keeping to the norm, they moved pup from goliard to denali. They're set effects were changed and a few of their stats were modified a bit, but they're mostly the same.

All from Neo-Nyzul, current theory is
Floor 20 Boss: drops base (formerly a/d/g +1)
Floor 40 Boss: drops +1
Floor 60 Boss: drops +2
Floor 80 Boss: drops +3
Floor 100 Boss: drops super version (formerly +5)

Euxine Set (base): Entire set is impressive if only for the fact that compared to the generic **** armor SE normally adds, a lot of it is better. The pants are actually a half decent TP piece if, for some reason, you don't have cirque +1/2 (they'll actually beat cirque +1 in very high haste situations, since martial arts counts towards the haste cap, but otherwise they're still worse), and the boots are decent for shijin spiral if you don't have one of the better +dex boots. Hell, even the body has its uses if for some reason you don't have cirque farsetto +1. It definitely trounces Aurore.

Euxine +1: Stats start getting a bit better, but are still mostly meh. The difference between them isn't enough to warrant any changes in opinion, so everything I said for the base set applies to the +1 set as well. Only additions to note are the accuracy on the gloves making them a solid shijin piece, likely on par with or stronger than cirque guanti +2, depending on your ws set, and the +7 mnd on the feet, which ties with our formerly top mnd boots, for people who have a use for mnd boots,

Hello fast cast, how you doin'? Also note the +vit, something we don't have much of for gloves otherwise, outside of RSE and Athos's gloves. Handy for earth maneuver spamming with VE, and other things we might need vit for. They're still fairly nice for shijin, but there's no change to their position compared the +1.

Officially stronger than cirque pantaloni +2 here, outside of set effect procs and situations where you need the extra +10 skill for your puppet. The difference between the two will be negligible, but will lean towards cirque depending on how much of the set you TP in. However, the really important thing to note is that these pants are better than any other ws pants we have ever had for every ws we have except shijin spiral, and maybe pantin churidars +2 for howling fist, because of its 50% vit mod.

Fairly nice shijin boots, though they fall behind cirque scarpe +2 due to shijin's multi-hit nature.

Euxine +3: this is where they start getting yummy.

You can see where this piece is going, right? It's not there yet, though.

Probably stronger than cirque guanti +2 for shijin now, depending on your overall str/fSTR and Store TP amount. The accuracy and the dex combined are a pretty nice combo for the ws. Sick with cirque for SP/VS, though, unless you really need the acc, in which case they're at least a decent alternative for SP, since it has a vit mod.

Yea... Cirque Pantaloni +2 can't really compete with this. New best TP pants. New best WS pants (except for shijin).

Better offensive boots for shijin than cirque scarpe +2, if you can afford to lose the acc and the str (if you substitute the euxine gloves +3 in too, you can afford to lose the acc. The loss of the 14 str and its impact on your fSTR is the main question)

Thaumas (+5): This is where brix get shat.

Outside of caster **** where the m.acc/mab is useful, it's a new, decent option for a str head piece, for SP/VS, it'll be a fairly strong contender for top head gear, depending on the rest of your set up.

Just.... yum..... I have no idea how to even begin trying to math this out vs Farsetto +2, since I'm not sure how Quadruple Attack mechanics work, but this is definitely in our top tier TP bodies.

Fairly confident these are the new best shijin hands. Still fairly strong for pummel, too, especially if you need the acc. I don't think they'll beat guanti +2 or Pantin +2 for TP, though.

Same comment as Euxine Nails +3, better than scarpe +2 for shijin unless you need the acc, but the atk and da will definitely help make up the loss in fSTR.

Too bad that they made such a GREAT decision to move PUP to the set where it obviously belongs, and then designed the event to totally troll the players due to the extreme luck required to get a shot at the good pieces from 80 and 100 floor bosses. And if you do hit the jackpot and get there, good luck getting the specific drop you want out of the 15 possible armor drops from each boss.

Realistically, 60F items are attainable. 80F are likely for the very lucky only, and 100F require miraculous luck.

The only 20/40/60 item that's honestly worth aiming for as PUP is:

Although you're certainly right that Euxine +2 legs are a great WS piece for anything but Shijin, Pantin+2 are also not far off for Stringing Pummel thanks to the VIT mod. Euxine +2 win, but not by much.
