Stringing pummel ws setFollow

Hey all.

I should get my Inferno Claws today after finally recording floor 100 yesterday. Funny thing is, now I have to figure out what makes for a good Stringing Pummel ws set.

To start with, here is my tp set:
main: Oxyurain (str/att)
ranged: Turbo Charger
ammo: Oil +3
ear 1: Brutal Earring
ear 2: Aesir Ear Pendant (should this be Kemas? I never am sure)
ring 1: Rajas Ring
ring 2: Epona's Ring
waist: Twilight Belt
back: Pantin Cape
armor: full af3+2 (including the feet, helps whm puppet stick debuffs when solo, and excellent acc for when punching hard stuff)
This sits me at 24% haste.

So, about Stringing Pummel, I have no idea what to use! I do have the Shadow Belt and Shadow Gorget already, so if elemental neck/belt are a good choice I'll use those. Also, should I be using Kemas in my tp set? And, do we do Stringing Pummel n the Epona's and hope for a proc? I'm completely lost here.

Thanks in advance for the advice.

I currently use the below for my SP set :

Oxyurani (Fire)
Pantin Taj +2
Toci's Harness
Cirque Guanti +2
Ptn. Churidars +2
Cirque Scarpe +2
Flame Gorget
Soil Belt
Kemas Earring
Brutal Earring
Spiral Ring
Rajas Ring
Pantin Cape

This build gives me +56 Str +41 Dex and only +7 Vit and of course the bonus from belt/gorget.
I believe Spiral Ring is better than Epona's simply because the Mods are always guaranteed where as Epona's is not.
Kemas Earring once again has the mods for SP and a bit of Acc which always helps.

I used Cirque +2 until I got my Toci's.

With epona's you'd have the equivalent of 17% double attack though. (3% triple attack being basically 6% double attack except better because it only needs to trigger once) That is roughly 1/6 hits. Stringing pummel is 6 hits, so it'd be very rare that you didn't get at least 1 double/triple attack. Using your logic you should do away with brutal in favor of a STR earring, since it's the same thing as epona's but weaker.

I think an ideal SP set looks something like:

Ranged: Deluxe Animator > Animator +1 > Turbo Animator

Head: Ocelomeh +1 (paired with body). Athos, Pantin+2, and Anwig are viable next options. (EDIT: see below discussion of Athos, which does increase in utility the more pieces of the set you have to the point where it may be the #1 choice)

Neck: Flame/Shadow/Soil Gorget. Ire/+1 are also very close if you're capped on Acc with their penalty, but you better be very sure you're capped or else gorgets win. Rancor (max tonberry hate) is a great option here... IF you aren't using Rancorous Mantle, because the crit on each doesn't stack (and Mantle is a better fit for WS since it also has Atk+17). Other solid choices include Agasaya's and Faith.

Ears: Brutal/Aesir. Aesir/Kemas/Ghillie are all so close as to be sidegrades, so I'll say the Conserve TP on Aesir gets the nod.

Body: Toci's Harness. If you don't have that, Ocelomeh Harness/+1 are also fantastic, and Cirque+2 is very respectable.

Hands: Athos, followed by Cirque+2.

Rings: Epona's/Spiral. I know it's hard to give up Rajas out of habit, but Epona/Spiral is the best combination over time for SP. Pyrosoul is actually probably your next best bet, and Rajas is still in the mix as a respectable option.

Back: Rancorous Mantle (with full Tonberry hate). Vellaunus is next.

Waist: Prosillo, followed by Anguinus slightly ahead of (EDIT: PUP can't use, sorry!) Elemental belts.

Legs: Thaumas. Euxine +2/+3 still beat any of the rest, then comes Usukane, Athos, and the fairly tightly packed group of Cirque+2/Pantin+2/Alcide's+1/Barbarossa (EDIT: Again, see more on Athos below)

Feet: Cirque +2

Ah, good point. Legion seems like a good bet. Maybe an early addition unlocked with Neo-Limbus?

But yeah, those pieces look like they contain some pretty high end options for Pummel/Smite/Spiral.

I'm doubting legion since we know what drops from everything but the final room. Since all the other rooms drop 2-3 items, I'm doubting the final one drops 15 pieces of gear. (Especially gear with a set effect. You need 18-36 people to go on 5+ runs to get the set for just one of them?)

Hopefully it's limbus, then there's be a reason to do it for jobs that can't use homam. (there's no augments that could possibly make nashiera useful)


Nevermind, it's legion points gear. 3k points per piece... You're lucky to get 100 points per run....

Well, usually S-E makes adjustments and improves some of these events to make them more reasonable. I see Legion as very much like Einherjar, which started out very difficult AND not giving any ampoules unless you win the chamber. I wouldn't be at all surprised to see Legion also get adjusted so it becomes easier to get points for the legion point gear.

The available options are overshadowed by better items in those slots. For example, on the body, Toci's is far superior to Athos', and in the legs, Thaumas and Cirque+2 are better than Athos', too.

10 acc and att is better then 5 dex and 4% crit hit rate bonus?(Plus 3% crit hit rate if your wearing the head)

I think I did overlook Athos' legs. Solely comparing the legs slot, Thaumas and Euxine +2/+3 still beat em, Usu still have a slight edge, but Athos are in that next cluster of good options.

You're right though that Athos become better if you're getting additional set bonus from also using Athos hands or head. On the other hand, have to also consider the Toci/Ocelomeh set bonus of 3% Triple Attack for head+body.

On closer examination, I think the best current SP set excluding Mustela gear would be:

Deluxe Animator
Athos head
Ele. Gorget
Brutal/Aesir
Toci's
Athos hands
Epona/Spiral
Rancorous Mantle
Prosillo Belt
Athos legs
Cirque +2 feet

Thaumus legs and Athos legs are pretty much a wash in that set, but without the Athos set bonus Thaumus would be the easy winner.

Whoops, let me just say I said those stats wrong. 4% crit hit damage, not rate.

Edit: While I am here, Why 7 attack over 2 str vit, acc4 earring? Thought acc and core stats> attack on sp?

Edit2: Agn belt isn't equippable by pup either.

For the most part, what anza said, but there are a couple points I want to comment on;

While you're correct that Epona is stronger than spiral (and spiral is stronger than rajas, as anza pointed out), the bold part is inaccurate. No matter how many hits a ws has, only the first 2 attacks can proc DA/TA/QA, regardless of whether they hit or miss (though obviously relative to the total number of hits, since you can't proc QA on any of the ws that already have 6-8 hits, or get a 6th hit via DW), so the effectiveness of DA/TA for SP is diminished slightly by that fact. Extra hits, however, will always trump small stat boosts (for SP), because of how low the stat mods are.

because pup's attack is naturally lower, having a big chunk of attack like that is very handy. The acc is mostly washed out against anything except for the toughest mobs, and 2 str/vit are not a very big upgrade. Yes, we're always hurting for available str/vit options, but because of the way crits work, crit ws make atk a bit more valuable, and 7 atk > 2 str 2 vit when you account for that.
