Before reading, please know I'm only a level 9 DNC. I'm simply looking for clarification.

So, I just took DNC from 1 to 9 yesterday, and quite frankly (despite a major reluctance to even take the job...just didn't seem to fit my playstyle) I've grown to love the job, and it'll be my next 75 job. Been browsing over some more top-notch gear to get as I get to the 50's - 60's (Rapparee Harness, Assault Jerkin, etc.) and I've seen numerous postings on Artifact. Some shun full use of it (minus Campaign battles) and others have been quick to embrace it as the best possible setup. Granted, the body is easily replaced by the Scorpion Harness or Rapparre Harness, but what of the others? Here are some of the options I've been considering so far...

Dancer's Tiara --> Empress Hairpin (Tiara will be a macro piece.)

Dancer's Casaque --> Rapparee Harness / Scorpion Harness / Assault Jerkin (macro piece, again).

Dancer's Bangles --> Battle Gloves (Macro piece; is there anything better here?)

Dancer's Tights --> TP piece.

Dancer's Shoes --> TP piece.

Is this what the general consensus is, or is there something I missed?

Looks good for the most part. This is the only one I would really change, and I would use a walkure mask instead of hairpin.

Looks good though I hope your not contemplating compleatly bypassing AF. Step acc, Samba duration, and Waltz Potency are fabulous!

Personally I'd stick with the Emp.Hairpin for soloing and you'll be suprised how often you end up tanking in lower lv's(Dunes expecially). The 10 evasion is also fabulous!

Voyager Sallet is another possible as a headpiece until O.Hat/Turban/etc.

AF, I'd agree, legs/feet are solid TP pieces for the 50s/60s, rest is pure macro gear, but very nice for that.

Don't forget all of the cobra unit pieces. Acc and STP are the best ways to get tp before the endgame haste pieces.
