Best of The BestFollow

I am a returning DNC. I like to plan and set myself goals when doing anything in life and FFXI is no different. I am looking toward the community for some advice and opinions. I am looking to start working towards ultimate sets of armor for my DNC. Basically I am looking for a God set for Party, Solo and WS. Also looking for ideas for other pieces of armor that would help or be a must for DNC to be as good as possible. I know AF/Relic for macro swap pieces but any others?

Dagger1:
Dagger2:
Range:
Head:
Neck:
Ear1:
Ear2:
Body:
Hands:
Ring1:
Ring2:
Back:
Waist:
Legs:
Feet:

In party gear I am looking to attack as fast and accurate as possible. Solo I am thinking Evasion would be main stat and WS of course to hit as hard as possible. Any advice to ultimate gear towards these slots and categories would be great. I have made a list myself and am just curious how off it is to others.

Hello,

You seem new to FFXI. Unlike games such as WoW, we have a saying here -- "Sh*t is situational". What is "best" for one thing, in one situation, on a certain mob, in a specific zone, or during a predetermined moon phase will not be best somewhere else, and vice versa.

Sincerely,
The Management

I am very aware of things being situational but we all have a idea in our head what is the best piece of armor in a certain slot 95% of the time. I am just curious how close my list is compared to others also I sometimes do not trust alla and wiki to list everything because those two is what I make my list off of.

Party: Charis Feather, Atheling Mantle, Charis Casaque +2, Brutal Earring, Suppanomimi, Charis Toeshoes +2, Epona's Ring, Rajas Ring, Ocelot Gloves, Charis Tiara +2, Charis Tights +2, Charis Necklace, Twilight Belt, Twashhtar, Parazonium +2

Evasion: Charis Feather, Boxer's Mantle, Mirke Wardecors, Brutal Earring, Suppanomimi, Ballerines, Epona's Ring, Heed Ring, Slither Gloves, Anwig Salade, Charis Tights +2, Evasion Torque, Nusku's Sash, Kila +2, Kila +2

WS (Evisceration): Charis Feather, Cavaros Mantle, Loki's Kaftan, Jupiter's Earring, Brutal Earring, Charis Toeshoes +2, Thundersoul, Thundersoul, Aias Bonnet, Charis Bangles +2, Tumbler Trnks, Soil Gorget, Soil Belt

This might be easier to compare too. Anyone disagree with any of these and if so why? I am just looking for feedback and I am very open minded. I am just looking to what is 95% of the time looked at as the best armor piece in that slot.

Adjustments:

TP: Dusk +1 over Ocelot. If you have Marches and Haste, Crit +3% Wivre Gorget, Regain earring, and some other body over Suppa/Charis neck/Charis+2 body. Also, STR/Atk Kila +2 can be very comparable or superior to a DA+10% Parazonium +2 depending on your buffs.

Max Evasion: Fugacity Mantle, Novia, Musical, Fugacity Beret, Sveltesse Gouriz, Torero Torque, Counter-augmented Gules Leggings

WS (Eviseration): Epona's will probably be better than Thundersoul. Depending on cRatio, Matre legs or Atheling Mantle will be better than Tumbler's or Cavaros. Cavaros vs. Atheling would be a close competition even at capped pDIF, I'd think. Without subbing WAR or getting Chaos Roll/Minuets, I don't really see us capping attack very often in Abyssea.
