Super list Kadath! Rate up (^^)

Now, could you perhaps expand the list to include equipment up to level 60?

Yes... I could but itd be pretty silly for me to guesstimate stuff that far above my level... but maybe I will add a few levels... of course with a full disclaimer for anything above 40... although I know some good 43 stuff :P

yellow mean to use it if you are subbing ninja green means to use when tanking and (DD) means to use it while not tanking nothing next to it and white color means to use it all the time.

Reading the two stickies, it seems like you guys recommend axe+shield or greataxe. When should I use axe and when should I use greataxe? (I'm leveling war as a sub).

generally use axe and great axe freely though great axe is often used more for damage dealing then axe is and is also useful for high defense targets such as crabs.

As I leveled my warrior to 20 thus far (God, **** I hate Qufim...), I found Royal Spearman's Spear at level 18 to be quite sufficient, maybe you could add that to the list. ^^;;

Also, "Boomerang" is a level 14 item that WARs can use to get a jump start on throwing weapons to pull, as this list starts at 19. There may be some earlier ones, but I don't know any of them offhand. Hope this helps any.

edit: One other possible piece of advise I might offer. Some people new the game and/or the class, may not have the money to afford all the items listed here. Perhaps you could list some possibly alternative? San d'Orian equipment is a cheaper alternative to kingdom gear, for those lacking in funds, for instance. Level 25 RDM and still using San d'Orian gloves... :P

Hmm, as I looked at this list, I kinda thought like:

yeah,got that...did that... ah that one took a while to farm for....good call!...

So the moral here is, yes, you can get other equipment, this is mostly standard equipment.

Looking through it now, the only luxury items I see that you are not expected to have if you take your job seriously are:

Lizzy/winged boots, emp. hairpin, snipers rings, ... and that's it.

If you are serious about any job, you will take the time from leveling to make the money!

I know you tried to stay away from +1 stuff, but I just bought a set of +1 beetle armour (complete set) and I am worried about all the water hits. Did I just make a terrible mistake?

are Enkelados's Bracelets really a good grab? I was looking at them for DD gloves, but the -4dex and agil kinda makes me shy away from them, while the +7 str would be very nice for my hume.

But i'm a firm believer in hitting as often as you can, even if it's for slightly less.-4dex = -2acc. So it worries me a bit. Even with the +20-30 or so acc you'll have by then.

I'd like to hear some feedback of their effect on performance if possible ^^.

Remember, there's no hard evidence that 2 dex = 1 acc. If you re-read the SE interview frequently posted, you'll notice they do say 2 vit = 1 def and 2 str = 1 atk, but not 2 dex = 1 acc or 2 agi = 1 eva. They state that it's better to directly raise acc than via dex, so it's not a 1-to-1 relationship... and if it were 2-to-1 like vit/str, they would've just said that. So likely, it takes at -least- 3 dex to get a point of acc by your own stats... possibly more.

So yes, the bracelets are quite awesome... I like to swap them and a swordbelt+1 in while sneak-attacking, since it's a guaranteed critical hit, I'm adding 7 STR and 12 attack to the cause. Owch X) I don't leave them on though, -4 agi? Yikes...

Onward, some other equipment thoughts up to 70... A bit of this is easily attainable/cheap, some of it is kind of expensive, and a lot of it is expensive or difficult to obtain. Still, it's a sample of items you should keep an eye our for, in my opinion...

Waist:
Level 43 Swordbelt/Swordbelt+1, great DD until Life Belt
Level 58 Master Belt, a good option if you don't need as much acc as life belt, but swordbelt's 0 acc is too little.

Back:
Level 55 Federation Army Mantle, a great tank item, requires rank 6
Level 55 Royal Army Mantle, DD, requires rank 6
Level 60 Behemoth Mantle, tank

Body:
Level 60 Byrnie, awesome armor, huge boost to damage and doesn't gimp you as a tank like haubergeon does. You can even put Defender on and still hit hard.
Level 69 Hauberk, DD, just trade in your haubergeon

Earring:
Level 1 Cassie's Earring, tank or DD, I hope you're rich!
Level 30 Pilferer's Earring, /thf DD sub. Who'd argue with an extra 2 dex?
Level 30 Genin Earring, /nin tank sub. An extra +1 agi over a drone earring.
Level 58 Assault Earring, pure DD.
Level 70 Fenrir's Earring, DD, good luck getting this or...
Level 70 Pixie Earring, DD, that.

Ring:
Level 30 Archer's Ring, DD luxury item, if you plan on getting sniper's later...
Level 54 Chrysoberyl Ring, tank
Level 54 Fluorite Ring, DD
Level 54 Sun Ring, DD
Level 54 Jadeite Ring, tank
Level 57 Bomb Queen Ring, tank
Level 60 Gold Musketeer's Ring, tank, amazing if you're rank 7 and Bastok gets in first place.
Level 63 Jelly Ring, tank
Level 65 Fire Ring, DD on firesday
Level 65 Lightning Ring, DD on thundersday
Level 65 Wind Ring, tank on windsday
Level 70 Defending Ring, tank, another "good luck getting it" item.

Feet:
Level 68 Thick Sollerets, DD

Hands:
Level 50 Spiked Finger Gauntlets, DD *new item*
Level 65 Praefectus' Gloves, tank
Level 68 Thick Mufflers, DD
Level 70 Alkyoneus's Bracelets, DD

Head:
Level 65 Opo-Opo Crown, tank w/rice balls, difficult to obtain.
Level 68 Celata, DD
Level 70 Optical Hat, DD

Legs:
Level 69 Thick Breeches

Neck:
Level 33 Peacock Charm, DD, the luxury item of all luxury items.
Level 55 Iron Musketeer's Gorget, tank
Level 65 Grand Temple Knight Collar, DD, requires rank 8.

Ranged:
Level 55 Lightning Bow, DD
Level 63 Bomb Core, DD
Level 70 Fenrir's Stone, tank

Axe:
Level 56 Darksteel Axe
Level 68 Nadziak
Level 70 Juggernaut

Great Axe:
Level 58 Forseti's Axe
Level 59 Heavy Darksteel Axe
Level 64 Colossal Axe
Level 69 Berserker's Axe

Oh totally. I didn't even mean to imply that I think these are even close to the "best" options myself. I'm sort of playing the versaility role of WARs up and listing a number of items that seem to excel over the more banal items out there in one role or another. You could write pages on just the various useages of different items if you wanted. I just tried to play that "a lot of options out there" concept to the items that stand out.

It's kind of like how no one bothered to mention tortoise earrings (+3 atk, -3 eva), because they don't really have anything over other items available. Or who would bother with a Gold Cuirass? etc...

Mermaid ring is a rare ring thus mermaid / mermaid-tank isn't really a viable option. Man I wish it was, but it's not. I'd also like to comment that as a tank this ring WILL help you a *LOT*. It is fanatasitc and I really can't say enough good thigns about it...but yeah, you only get one :\

Awesome guide. Confirms a lot of what I suspected, but it's also really nice to see some of the less standard suggestions. Great to have it all in one place, well organized and free of clutter.

So i'm a level 19 war/9 monk. i know i haven't played that long but what is up with some of the suggestions to say to pick. is it geared to just average equip???

Cuz the lizard helm and bone mask have exactly the same def, except for the fact one is one level down. meaning you can get it earlier. this one i really don't understand at all. the bone mask goes for like 2000 gil while the lizard mask is like 500 on my server.

the shield. why get the the lantern shield when you can get the decurion shield in a few levels and it has much better def.

i thought you said stay away from lizard things. but you pick the lizard trousers over the bone subligar??

bone mittens over the fine gloves??

lizard ledelsons over the sandy boots (kingdom if you have teh money)???


i'm not critisizing i'm just asking why those selections. is it to save money or for levels??? some are better obviously and you will pay more, but why pay more for something that is just as good as another, like the lizard mask/bone mask???

Just asking, so don't get mad.

Yes Bone has the same DEF as Lizard, that's why I didn't put Lizard on there. Lantern Shield has stat adjustments that make it more worthwhile than other selections. Also Bone and lizard are both deffered to, that's the meaning of an "-or-" Also Fine Gloves are a +1 item, and not a totally neccesary +1 item.

And to explain. I said so we can Avoid people in Lizard armor in Yhoator Jungle.. a 28-32 ish zone.

BUT buy whatever you want :P This is just here to offer advice to people as they level. Somethings are left out because earlier level stuff has the same DEF.

i understand completely. i leveled to 21 last night and immediately upon getting back to town bought all beetle armor. it was pretty cheap, too. i guess that sometimes i justify the expense of some armor (when i have the gil) and others i say the def isn't worth the gil. it all comes down to gil.

i always make sure to have the latest gear. i don't need to take more damage than necessary and die. LOL. ;)
