I was reading about the new augmentable attributes you can add to the new armor from the new mini expansion, and was trying to think what I would go for. Since my DNC already has Etoile Casaque and there would be no point in adding Acc and Attk, what would be a good TP 'or' overall piece to have?

Acc +10
Eva + 10
Attk + 10
STP+4 SB+4
Double attk + 2%
Enmity -5
Enhances Dual Weild ( +3%)

Yeah. Since I have Etoile Casaque too I'm thinking about my stats. I think I would go with Dual Wield and Double attack. Could be a nice Saberdance Combination. And when I don't hit enough I can still switch to Relic Body. But I'm still thinking.

I'm stunned by the options available. They look absolutely fantastic.

I was wondering pretty much the same thing. Assuming you add Accuracy +10 and Attack +10, we have our own Haubergeon. And that is exceptionally difficult to defeat.

I was also toying with the idea of combining the Dual Wield enhancement with Accuracy +10. Although the Haste from the Rapparee Harness likely trumps the Dual Wield enhancement, the only problem with the harness is that it suffers on higher level mobs outside of extremely high Haste conditions. Perhaps the Mirke with Dual Wield and Accuracy would be a particularly nice TP piece, especially if you're a /NIN fan.

I have to give this a lot of thought. :p

Things that jumped out for me:
Double attack, Accuracy, Dual Wield.
I am currently the highest level DNC in my linkshell and 71 atm so I'll get the Etoile body eventually (gogo northlands spam!). Considering this, I could add Accuracy and Double Attack (for WS?), or make it a TP piece and add Accuracy and Dual Wield. Or add Dual Wield and Double attack.
Any combination of these things should work fine I guess, but needs more thinking ><

**** SE for giving us another difficult decision...first G2 merits and now this. XD


Well I dont have DNC relic body (yet) but giving up my rapp harness even for that for TP will be a difficult decision. I was planning on keeping rapp harness on and just using relic body for stun macroes and WS.

Now that we have this option I will probably create our best WS body piece (since as I predicted, they're not going to give us the option of throwing haste on to augments.) So I'll probably go with the att/acc +10. This way I can also use it as a step macro body piece and sell of my SH+1.

I'm planning on going Dual Wield + Accuracy for mine. 5 dex + 10 accuracy is 12.5 accuracy, which I believe is the best accuracy body a dancer can get. (It even beats the Relic Body for accuracy purporses)

As far as TP goes, I believe Dual wield and haste are worth exactly the same thing; someone correct me if I'm wrong.

The rapparee harness would become a utsusemi:Ni recast body. Sure, it's 1% less "haste", but even with 4% haste, the rap was only situationnally better than a scorpion harness.

A Dex+5 Accuracy+10 Dual Wield +3% body would be the best of both worlds, not to mention the extra 5 Str and 5 Agi that still count for something.

I usually sub SAM so I'm tempted by STP/SB+. Since I don't have relic body *shakes fist at Xarcabard* I'll probably go ATT/ACC+, keep my SH for EVA macro and store my AJ...though ACC+ and DA+ with Sabre Dance would be sweet too...bah so many options o.O

Just did the math on this, there will be no difference between dual wield and haste for DNC as far as attack speed or TP rate goes (unless you use Ermine's+CUK 4.7 to 4.6 boo-hoo XD). 1% Haste vs. 10 acc is an easy decision to make.

It's a sidegrade from Enkidu's/Etoile at best.

COR and especially RNG got real benefit from the augment system.

Didn't even give this a second thought for DNC. I think Enkidus harness is probably better. I'll be using this for RNG and sidegrading for O-sode.

But if I was to use it for DNC

ACC +10
and
DW +3%
or
ATT +10

I found a link on some other forums actually every jobs forum but this one to be exact. If anyone else wants to see them. I'll prolly get Redcoat with M.acc+4 and 5% Fast Cast for my BRD sence there is hardly anything I could do to improve my Dancer.

I am a little confused about this.

Our best (situational) TP pieces are R. Harness/Etoile Casaque, right?

So we get a piece that has nearly the same delay reduction.. as well as 2.5atk/12.5acc/2.5eva and.. it's not the best piece? In a situation you're lacking in acc and lose the 4% from R. Harness.. you can get MORE acc as well as a delay reduction on this piece.. on top of the inherit benefeit to WS (although this may not be true..E. Body may win due to lack of atk cap?)

Or in a situation where you do NOT need the acc.. R. Harness wins.. but.. having an extra 12.5 acc is not a small figure along with the other stats on the suggested body.. I -personally- prefer Joytoy and that build suffers from acc for sword pretty heavily..

Regardless. I am personally very excited and will be choosing the above piece unless someone can convince me otherwise..



edit before I get flamed:

Enkidu is a really nice piece too, I was selfish in not listing it because personally it's not an obtainable item at the moment. I already run with SH+1 and R. Harness and am in line for an Etoile Body though - forgive me for not listing it.

Maybe it's my personal playstyle - but I prefer TP accumulation en masse to the DoT increase from the ATK.

Edited, Mar 23rd 2009 10:37pm by EmotionBlues

double edit: Geez, it has +5 Store TP on it too.. hard to argue that I guess - but the Mirke still win IMO if you can't get Enkidu. :l idk.

I'll be thinking along these line to and improve my PLD instead with Fast Cast and enmity +5

The problem is that people are trying to make this piece benefit 1 of their set ups.

For ages most jobs that are not on haubergeon wanted a body that was the same as it. Now the option is there and everyone wants to either side grade or completely downgrade.

It's known that enkidus is your best option for tp/ws but it also lacks 5 dex. Tests were done and calculations and enkidu pretty much wins as best piece. Here's the chance to have a piece that is even better than enkidu for any set up and people want to downgrade.

If you are dual-wielding and you have a decent haste setup (20%), then:

Quote:
ACC +10
and
DW +3%


wins.

The DW is going to add at least 6% DoT alone when stacked with capped Haste Samba, and that's before you get haste from mage or march from bard (or both), which would push it up even higher. (I did the math for this in the BLU thread.)

Basically, this is almost certainly the best TP piece for all Dual-Wielding jobs using a reasonable haste setup and assuming mage support (especially if that includes a bard).

Since you would not have ATK on this, I believe Enkidu's would still win for WS.

If the utility for TP build is a reason to get it or not is the part we all get to figure out (and fortunately we can even change our minds if we later want). Some jobs aren't going to get much out of their options, others would.

Incidentally, ACC and Enmity would be far more useful for PLD than FC and Enmity. Faster Atonements and more strikes dealing damage (plus enmity for every action) beats the pants off of a marginal FC bonus, especially since double March and Haste is all you need to cap timers anyway (assuming ~15% haste in gear).

Seems to me that people plan to mimic enkidu harness. I have enkidu harness already so im leaning towards something different.

Dex+5 Str +5 Agi +5. with Double Attack +2 and Dual wield +3.

I have 8/8 dagger merits.
Azoth/Joytoy
War Hoop
Optical Hat/Walahra
Peacock amulet
Suppa/Brutal
Enkidu's mittens
Thunder Ring/Accuracy ring/Rajas ring
Amemet mantle +1 (working on a etoile cape)
Swift Belt
Pahluwan seraweels/enkidu's subligar
Denali gamashes/enkidu's leggings.

Is more acc/att needed for this setup? I personally like the idea of faster TP vs higher DOT.
thoughts?

I think more acc would still be good for you but I haven't calculated it as the time is past 1am and I'm a bit tired. Regardless, consider that ultimately you would like to stack more haste gear if you are able, and you should see that going ACC on the body will make it more feasible. Additionally, your dagger merits aren't helping your joyeuse, and DA can't proc on a Joy proc, so you have two more reasons to make ACC the higher priority.

Nate's calculations in the BLU forum have pretty much confirmed the choice I'm going to make. Accuracy +10 and the Dual Wield enhancement really is too good to pass up. Not only does it improve our DoT (by virtue of having a substantial amount of rather easy-to-obtain haste gear and fully-merited Haste Samba) but I'm quite certain it has been confirmed that reducing your delay whilst Dual Wielding (as much as you can) significantly improves your TP gain over time - which, of course, is invaluable to DNC in whatever role they fill.

And I don't think there are a lot of gear options out there that can do both of those at the same time. Very exciting.

Thanks, Nate - for sharing your calculations.

Maybe its the lack of sleep....maybe its the strong pain killers that I'm on atm...but I'm still having a bit of trouble understanding the detriments/benefits of having the dual wield augment in place of the 4% haste from rapp harness.


Let me clarify that. With the dual wield we get reduced delay, but the trade off is less tp gain per hit right? So not including things like hit %, in the long run would you get more hits with the haste or with the DW%? Or how about this, if you TP in brutal earring and rajas ring for 6 STP would that compensate for the loss in TP/hit?


On a side note, I'm browsing the THF forums and their praising this body (with 10 acc and DW%) as being a Homam corazza +1. I may just jump on ship when I start understanding the math that goes along with it. XD

What stands out to me at this moment is the +5 enmity augment. I just got Fan Dance and I'm thinking a Enmity setup for Fan Dance. Not on the Mirke, but maybe some high defense or evasion armor pieces. I'd like to be able to keep hate faster at the beginning of a fight before Waltzes allow me to.
And yeah everything else does too. This is so cool. I hope it's everything we hope it to be(within reason lol)

I was also considering the +5 enmity. Most of the time that I am using dancer it is solo, or a lowman tank situation. The idea of +10 evasion and +5 enmity appeals to me. Now I only need to get the chance to use it more.

I'm planning on adding EVA/Dual Wield.

It's going to be my Ballista body.

Or maybe help me add stats that will benefit DNC in what I do most now (Limbus, Merit, Dynamis, Ballista, Soro)

My current setup is as follows:
Jambiya/Joy/Warhoop
Walmart Turban (O.hat for WS)
Chiv Chain
Suppa/Diablos Earring
R.Harness (*** jerkin for WS)
Dusk Gloves (Cobra for the ACC/WS)
Rajas/Ulthalems
Amemet+1
Swift Belt (Life Belt for WS)
Etoile Tights (Can swap in Cobra for more ACC but I like the STR/CHR for DE)
Dancers Toe shoes.

Any suggestions on what would be an OMG upgrade with this new body? The +10EVA and +DW is an OMG upgrade to my current Ballista setup (EVA) which is as follows:

Jamibya/Joy/Warhoop
O.Hat
Eva Torque
The +5/+3 eva earrings
Scorpion Harness
The +5 magey LV50 gear (Working on denali)
Ulthalems/ The +2EVA lv 45ish(?) ring
Bat Cape
Life Belt (No Scouter's on AH yet;;)
Crow pants
Dancers Toe Shoes


Eh, I added nothing productive to this thread...but maybe any advice given to me can help someone else!

I'm not sure how gaining 2.5 evasion (5 agi) at the cost of 7.5 accuracy (-10 accuracy +5 dex) is an OMG upgrade for Ballisata.

Assuming random numbers: Let's say people were hitting you 40% of the time, and you were hitting them 70% of the time. If you do the upgrade you suggest (SH for that new body + Evasion + DW), you'd get hit 39% of the time, and you would hit them 66% of the time, but with an additonal 3% dual wield speed.

Your ballista gear doesn't stack haste or dual wield reduction, so cutting your delay by an additional 3% wouldn't have that much of an effect.

If you really want to make it your Ballista outfit, I'd suggest +10 acc +10 evasion instead, really. It would become some kind of SH+2 instead.

It is an OMG upgrade to me, most likely because I'm a ballista fanatic and everything I do is I keep bettering my ballista gear in mind. Thanks for giving me hard numbers though. It makes the comparison a lot easier to make.

My ballista ACC is fine since the opponent is about EM and I usually pop Crab Sushi for ACC if there are a lot of evasive jobs in the match.

But again, I really appreciate the numbers. Comparing numbers is a lot easier than comparing hypothetical situations.
