Ok if you reading this it means you want a second opinion on your Warriors Equipment. On the whole this is a "Good Warrior" Equipment guide it, most times, wont include that extra +1 for 100,000 gil more its reasonable and is here to keep you on track untill your AF.

haha, kadath great post, you just put my meager attempt at a weapons chart to shame. And the equipment is key.

Once again, good work.

There are some waist pieces that I believe are worth considering for later levels, for example:

Level 30 Sarashi (NIN sub)
Level 40 Tilt Belt (DD)

There may be others, but this is what I can come up with atm.

Everything I've ever heard about the Sarishi belt is that it doesn't have that much of an effect. I personally don't know since I've never used it so it may be better. As for the tilt belt I don't even know what that is :P Tried to find it on the site and nothing came up so typo?

Small adjustment...

Lv. 7 It's Sapara, (typo)

Lv. 11 I would suggest it be changed to Bee Spatha +1 for the +2 ACC.

Great job overall though.

I tried to stay away from +1 equipment except where its an expected piece of equipment. Honestly a lvl 7 +1 sword isn't that big of a deal to me since its such a low level and not the preffered weapon. This isn't meant to be a "Uber-Warrior" equipment list, I just wanted to answer a lot of the common questions and help people keep up-to-date performance without having to research it themselves.

Tilt belt by the way is the new 40 belt from 3 man BCNMs. couple defense, +5accur, and -5eva...its nice but id just as soon wear swordbelt+1 or lifebelt(at 43 and 48 respectively, but hey, these levels go fast anyways). In any case, its very possible this belt isnt even on some servers yet.

I'd say at level 40 it's the best belt for 8 levels, until level 48 Life Belt. Swordbelt+1 is fine, but I'd much rather have +5 Accuracy than +13 Attack. Some other Warriors might agree, and it should at least be listed as an option ^^;

Sarashi isn't as noticible until you hit 50, when you have Dual Wield and Dual Wield II AND Sarashi, then you're definately going to notice a difference in swing time. Until then, it IS noticible, just not very much so. But its better than most other belts for DD as a WAR/NIN.

lvl 30 all jobs archer's ring?
acc +2 ranged acc +2

would be better than snipers ring for the tanking war, no def loss, like the -10 on the snipers

I put snipers on there since they are a fairly common high priced item and a viable upgrade for a DD WAR. Leaping boots and hairpin are on there since they are fairly common for /NIN that I've seen. Archers rings 200k at level 30 for +2 ACC... if you want them go ahead and get them but I'm not gonna reccomend it for most people.

EDIT: Melbolt pointed out in another thread that he farms these. On my server its a pretty heavy camp and its tends to spawn red a lot. If its different on your server have at it and kill yourself a Stroper Chyme... although TH2 is almost required from what I hear.

Even with TH2 the drop rate is awfully low. Good luck with that.

Never speak of the strope chyme again. I'm currently like 0/80 with TH2 on that *******.

about the tilt belt, since it's probably the first upgrade a dd warrior can put on his waist i'd recommend it. 1 more darn lvl and I get to put my seals to the test for this sucker, most definitely worth it for those 8 levels.

I would rather hit consistently than be a fan for the mob.

On another note, for tanking, I'd stick with warriorsbelt +1 till you get to 48, that +3 vit makes a difference, believe it or not.

Also, for tanking, don't use snipers, I beg of people. -10 or -20 def is not laughing matter. Stick with a +dex and a +vit ring if you're having trouble hitting.

Sarashi belt, I'm gonna give this a whirl since I tank with ninja as of now (too lazy to lvl mnk). I'll let you all know how I think it works.

Kadathas for the lvl 40 body armor, I think that the 1 def you lose from the breastplate for the +1dex is worth it. No need to get both, just list it as optional for each. Also for lvl 40, pop on the plate leggings, personally I don't need the +5 racc as I only use a boomerang to pull, and I don't think most of us warriors do. Just so pple know there's an option of course.

As for Breastplate vs RS Chainmail:
It might not be worth it to add one def and lose 1 dex, but I'll still reccomend it. On my server its cheaper than RS Chainmail and I really don't really think either is all that much better than the other.

As for Plate Leggings vs IM Sabatons:
+5 RNG ACC and +1 Def over the plate leggings. I know I usually pop off a Bow/Boomerange shot before I voke so I think its worth it.

As for this becoming a sticky:
Wewt :P

I'll be concidering extending this some but I gotta decide if its worth it. By level 40 your gonna be so set in your ways your not gonna listen to a guy the same level as you :P

Its my opinion that the Brave belt is almost as good as the Warriors Belt +1 for tanking even. In fact I used it for about 25 levels and has absolutely no problem tanking at all. I think its worth it, only way for you to know is buy it and try it out.

The drop rate is very low. It took my friend about 200 kills to get 2 archer's rings. Keep at it though :-P you'll eventually get it.
