Well, now I need to figure out a set. I doubt I'll be using Meteor that often (several blms in my ls's have meteor, so I might get to use it with other blm) but I need to figure out a casting set. Mind, I do have a chatoyant staff, which might do until I can get something better.

Any ideas on gear for Meteor? I could even do a flat +mab staff if that is any good at all for the spell. Tho I wouldn't use it for everything ^^.

A Chatoyant Staff will do little for the overall damage from Meteor, given that Meteor is a non-elemental spell. Its damage is affected by Magic Attack Bonus, INT, and Elemental Magic Skill (despite its non-elemental nature) and your gear should factor into that. Since it is being cast under the effects of Elemental Seal, Magic Accuracy is something you don't need to worry about much at all.

I'll give what is probably the best set right now for Meteor, and you can adjust your gear accordingly based around that. I'll also exclude the BLM mythic weapon, since while it is the best weapon for Meteor, it is also really hard to come by for obvious reasons.

Weapon: Ankylosis Wand (w/ Latent activated), Dorje (other options include Maleficius and the final stage of the INT/MAB Ice Magian weapon)
Grip (when using Dorje): Wizzan Grip, Elder's Grip
Ammo: Witchstone, Memoria Sachet
Head: Nares Cap
Neck: Stoicheion Medal
Earrings: Novio, Hecate's, Strophadic
Body: Morrigan's Robe +1
Hands: Morrigan's Cuffs +1
Rings: Sorcerer's, INT +7 Rings (Strendu to a lesser effect)
Back: Romanus Cape
Waist: Maniacus Sash, Othila Sash
Legs: Akasha Spats
Feet: Morrigan's Pigaches +1

I'll have to see about morrigan's and the akasha chaps and any Nyzul V.2 gear (I'm currently a full AF3+2 blm; delayed doing nyzul v.2 b/c I didn't know who was using illegal tools and who wasn't. Have been doing both Legion and Ein, and I also do Meebles) but I have a witchstone, a novio's, a Stoicheion Medal, a Hecate's, and a Oneiros Sash. I'll see about doing a flat MAB staff since dorje is really stupid high on Quetz. Oh and rings, I normally use a strendu and a icesoul ring. ^^ (Got lucky in vw there; it likes me for accessories, hates me for bodies.)

Tho yah, any affordable suggestions would be welcome. Also I never used the blm latent ring; I've seen blms get KILLED using that so never bought one. ^^

Predominantly you're going to want INT and MAB (moreso the MAB), so any purchased pieces of gear should be heavy in those stats if possible. Empyrean +2 pieces can act as stand-ins during the interim of acquiring those gear pieces I listed earlier.

Voay Staff costs less than Dorje on Lakshmi and for meteor is considerably better.

With even just a single rank up on it along the MAB path, the Soothsayer Staff from Delve will end up being a better Meteor staff than the Voay Staff, and once the update on the 6th comes, it'll be even more powerful.

Honestly Vlor I'm not sure how I ended up in the blm forum. I noticed after I posted that I bumped a 6 month old thread. I should have caught it when you mentioned Dorje. My idea was not everyone has access to delve weapons since blm isn't used for anything but Kurma.

Right now the Atinian Staff is easily the best for Meteor right now, with the Magic damage on it as well as the large chunk of MAB. Given how cheap Gabbrath Horns are nowadays (increase in supply while there are still very few Scarletites and the like for the other weapons it makes) it'll likely continue dropping in price.

Yeah when I made this Seekers was a twinkle in the devs's eyes. I mean to get that staff and improve my nuking set; right now my goal is to get my blm up to speed before November, which is doable. ^^

Currently, the majority of your gear for BLM (Meteor or otherwise) is going to come from Skirmish v2. There's a considerable amount of MAB on a number of the pieces already (Head and Legs in particular) and you can add quite a bit more if you spend the time/gil to properly augment them. Accessories, outside of maybe the new BLM cape from Marjami Ravine, Dho Gates, and Yorcia Weald, are all unchanged from prior to Adoulin, so if you have those you're still good.
