This week I finally hit a full-time 50% Double Attack rate when /war:
Praxidikai 11%
Parazonium+3 10%
Brutal earring 5%
Mirke Wardecors 2%
Nomkahpa mittens 3%
Epona's ring 3%
Ambuscade ring 1%
Atheling mantle 3%
Twilight belt 2%
/war 10%

I know Saber Dance overwrites the /war bonus. I have my relic pants +2.5'd for the SD bonus. I have either 4 or 5 Saber Dance merits... don't recall at the moment, but I think if it's 4 I'll trade my last point of Closed Position in the very near future to make it 5. Once it's 5, my SD bonus ought to be 25%-55%, ignoring the /war bonus for a total bonus range of 65%-95% DA while Saber Dancing.

Also I got my noodle kneading license for Cooking so as to make Nero di Seppia (nice for Dynamis and/or farming; haven't really tried using it for other activities yet):
HP +17% (Cap: 130@764 Base HP)
Agility -1
Charisma -1
Dexterity +3
Mind -2
Vitality +2
Double Attack +1%
Store TP +6

Next up:
Cap out my -pdt% set (not nearly as much fun as the DA set), which is currently hovering around 47-48%
Acquire a better +DA body than Mirkes. I've got my eye on Toci's and the Kudzu aketon, but...y'know...VW drop rates. I'd be pleased as punch to get some Neo-Nyzul body and feet, but I'm not really holding my breath there, either. As always, time will tell.

Kudzu is actually quite common off Morta, at least relative to other Voidwatch drops. If you want to have fun with a high DA rate, you could consider using some of the Double Attack Atma. You should be able to get up to a 95% base DA rate in Abyssea with the 3x 10% ones:

I know you're just doing this for fun, but AF3+2 body and Rajas Ring are going to be better than Mirke and Ambuscade in almost all situations. Also, you need to use Etoile +2 or Nomkapf but not both (because you can't really cap Haste anymore then).

I guess as a personal update, I've scored Khepri Bonnet, 99 Twashtar, and 99 Terpsichore since the last time I posted. I finished augmenting AF2+2 feet/body/legs and am debating whether or not I should do the head (considering I have Khepri now and almost never use Trance).

Hexed Kecks -1
Hexed Jacket -1
They're both Tier 0 level 110 synths that use difficult to obtain ingredients, so I'm not exactly holding my breath.

I look forward to the Meeble Burrow and Salvage V2 stuff and hope that Dancer has some role in those runs. I certainly haven't found a real role for us in other group content at the moment.
