Great sticky. Do you think it's possible to link the armor and equipment to the actual items on alla?

why Justice Badge??? Leather gorget is def +1 and cheaper at he AH (why do we need Mnd +3...we arent mages....) I am still using mine at lv 20 becuse NOONE has Scale gorgets, ther is one at the Bastok AH on ceberus but it is 6K and I didnt have the cash (I sold my swords and un-needed armor at the AH hoping that when they sell it will still be there...).

I'm fairly sure Justice is the one you can quest for.

I was gonna add all the links but for somereason when I do it under edit it moves the link to the bottom of the page. So it'd require a LOT of time. maybe this weekend though.

Buckhorn, Justice badge is mainly useful for soloing as a WAR/WHM from levels 7-15. The added MND helps in increasing potency of "Cure". Quest for it or buy it from the AH for 800 - 1k+ gil. Increased MND also gives a mild increase to spell resistance? << unsure


Isten, Enkelados's bracelets are very useful in a DD role IMHO. The big hit to DEX and AGI (DDs dont need it) can be overcome with other equipment. +7 STR is too good to pass up. My character profile: http://ffxi.allakhazam.com/profile.xml?38617

TP gain DOES present a problem sometimes... fighting very high level mobs, lack of a BRD, mages not debuffing sufficiently, having a SAM or RNG as skillchain partner or using a great axe (slower TP than dual 1H Axes). In such instances, i'll swap back to R.K. Mufflers.


Zalakria, good idea on the equipment swap for Sneak Attack =)

First time reading through responses, thought I'd add one. Plus RSE stuff.

How come Mahogany Shield is listed at 20? Decurion's Shield should be there! +2 def compared to Mahogany. And an Elm Shield at 13? Why not just stick with Aspis?

For Ranged:

LVL6 Coarse Boomerang
LVL14 Boomerang

Coarse Boomerangs go for about 1k-3k depending on servers, so chances are you won't ever use one. Boomerangs aren't too expensive and are nice to have before waiting until 19.

--- RSE ---

This stuff has lower defense than the Centurion set, so keep that in mind. Also note that the point of RSE is to make up for what your class lacks in, except Humes since they're balanced. As such, Galka won't find a lot here, but Taru will.

Hands (LVL27)
Hume: Def: 6 HP: 12 MP: 4 STR: 3 DEX: 3 VIT: -1 AGI: -1
Elvaan: Def: 6 MP: 24 DEX: 2 INT: 1
Tarutaru: Def: 6 HP: 12 STR: 3
Mithra: Def: 6 MP: 16 VIT: 4 MND: 2
Galka: Def: 6 MP: 32 INT: 2

Feet (LVL29)
Hume: Def: 5 HP: 4 MP: 12 DEX: -1 AGI: 3 INT: 3 MND: -1
Elvaan: Def: 5 MP: 20 AGI: 3 INT: 2
Tarutaru: Def: 5 HP: 20 STR: 2
Mithra: Def: 5 HP: 16 STR: 3 CHR: 2
Galka: Def: 5 MP: 12 AGI: 3 INT: 2

Legs (LVL31)
Hume: Def: 12 MP: 32 STR: -1 MND: 3 CHR: 1
Elvaan: Def: 12 HP: 12 MP: 12 DEX: 2 AGI: 2
Tarutaru: Def: 12 HP: 21 STR: 1 VIT: 2 MND: 2
Mithra: Def: 12 MP: 32 VIT: 1 MND: 1
Galka: Def: 12 MP: 20 AGI: 2 INT: 1 CHR: 2

Body (LVL33)
Hume: Def: 18 HP: 32 VIT: 3 INT: -1 CHR: 1
Elvaan: Def: 18 HP: 24 MP: 4 DEX: 1 INT: 1
Tarutaru: Def: 18 HP: 36 STR: 1 VIT: 2 MND: 1
Mithra: Def: 18 HP: 32 STR: 1 CHR: 1
Galka: Def: 18 MP: 32 INT: 1 CHR: 1



Yeah... I'm done. Whew.

I am trying to decide between the Lantern Shield (DEF 4, ATK +5) and the Decurian's Shield (DEF 6).

I'm a Mithra, so I like having as much DEF as possible, but the ATK bonus would also help. So, I'm not sure.

Also, a question about rings. I'm currently wearing a Courage/Stamina combo. Should I go full stamina as the party tank, or go full courage for the STR bonus?

Mostly because I'm a fool :P Problem solved. As for Elm it lets ya sell the Aspis for some gil and avoid jacknut PTs asking why you have "Old" gear.

For the most part unless the weapon gives you something spiffy I could care less :P Sure you can pick them up earlier to keep the skill up for pulling... but you don't have to hit to pull :P

Really since I'm hume all I know is Custom M. Glove = good stuff. Mostly for DD and SATA Partner though.

Latern Shield +5 ATK > 2DEF. Keep courage/stamina untill you can afford 2 of each would be my suggestion :P With 2 stamina your pushing into PLD territory, with 2 Courage your pushing into DRK, where do you want to be?

Hmm...I'd have to take issue with that. While most of the time you can miss a shot and still pull fine, often missing can be a major hassle. A missed pull only gives you very minor aggro, and if you have to pull past your mages resting (often the case when you are at a camp and have to pull from multiple directions), the mages wil l oftentimes get aggro from just sitting and healing, thus disrupting their healing and causing them potentially major damage. The the tank or subtank aren't overly bright and looking in the wrong direction, mages can take substatial damage and require large heals at the beginning of the battle that can seriously ***** up the aggro.

You should definitely level up your throwing/archery/marksmanship so that you don't miss too much on pulls.

Guys, having given it alot of thought and alot of research before I sank much money into it, I've decided not to go /nin for lvls 24-37 (I'm only interested in getting WAR to 37 right now). I've decided to go /thf, but with all I'm reading I can't figure out if I'm gonna need the Leaping Boots and Emp Pin to be all I can be as a DD 30+. Is this +dex and agi needed? Or would I be better off with the Centurion's set at that level? Any help would be appreciated.

stick with the cent set. the money you spend on emp hairpin and leaping boots could be better spent on a bunch of other HQ items in other slots that would help your performance much better than boots and pin could.

having said that, if you already have the boots and pin (i.e. youre a thf main) then yes, you can use them. they WILL help, but are by no means necessary.

if youre hume, think of getting some custom RSE gloves too. great DD item, like a spike necklace for your hands.

The new Eisen and Kampf gear should be added to the list. Here's some examples of the new gearcompared with some current choices.

Eisendiechlings Lev 29 Def: 17 Vit +1 Agi +1
Kampfdiechlings Lev 29 Def: 18 Vit +2 Agi +2
Centurion's Cuisses Lev 30 Def: 16 Agi +2

Eisenchaller Lev 29 Def: 13 Agi +1
Centurion's Visor Lev 30 Def: 12 Dex +1

Eisenhentzes Lev 29 Def: 9 Vit +1
Kampfhentzes Lev 29 Def: 10 Vit +2
Royal Squire's Mufflers Lev 30 Def: 8 Accuracy +2 (Tough call here. I like +ACC gear.)

Eisenschuhs Lev 29 Def:8 Vit +2
Centurion's Greaves Lev 30 Def:7 Agi +1

The Eisen line of armor is PLD/WAR only gear. Definitely all the +VIT would appeal to PLD. I think WAR/THF would benefit tremendously from some of these pieces.

I'm sorry but i'm a little confused how can I use a shield if I'm using a great axe, or is it just when you are using a hand axe. Thanks 4 the list it really helps.

You can't use a shield with a Great Axe; only when you're using a one-handed Axe.

I'm looking for opinions on DEX vs STR at my level (33WAR/16THF). After spending weeks farming and Smithing, waiting for certain members of my static party to catch up to me level-wise, I was able to pick up some pretty decent equipment. http://ffxi.allakhazam.com/profile.xml?53008

Now, two nights ago, we finally commenced leveling. We settled on the Beetles in Altepa, which were all checking as VT or IT to us, and mixing in some VT - IT Antica every once in awhile. The EXP was great, and I was soundly outdamaging the BLM and MNK (granted, we were fighting Beetles) who were with me (and annoying the heck out of my Paladin buddy), but I noticed missing was hardly a problem. I'm wondering if maybe my DEX is a little overkill for my level, and I should try to snag some more STR instead, maybe with two Courage Rings. Am I seeing diminishing DEX returns at my level, and would a little more Strength be of more help to me?

Berdysh,

This is just my opinion, but you definitely have plenty of DEX. I would think you could give up some DEX and drop in STR or VIT rings depending on situation. For more damage dealing, I would replace the two balance rings with courage rings. This would still leave you with +13 Dex and putting your STR at +12.

I notice the profile doesn't seem to add the Dex from the Pilferer's Earring. My profile is off by 2 in Dex as well.
http://ffxi.allakhazam.com/profile.xml?53656


P.S. That's some nice gear you have.

Thanks. I bought gear that catered solely towards being a DD simply because there's a very capable Paladin in my static. I miss tanking, though... I had more fun tanking with WAR/MNK than I did with PLD/WAR.

I actually sold my Emperor Hairpin last night, and I'm using the gil to help the Monk in our static buy Ochiude's Kote. Also made the switch over to Courage Rings from the Balance Rings, and tested out my new equipment setup briefly in Altepa - didn't notice a difference.

That Twicer was a friggin' rip at 150K though, if there's no way to recharge it...

or
