My main is DRK, on a bottom of a long list for kitty pants ;; , didn't really bother with a haste setup since I only have 4 Gaxe merits and no Haidate..
Don't let the lack of Haidate deter you from using a Haste setup. Acc-wise, you're not missing much (acc is basically the same between Armada and Haidate
) and you have more than enough other great gear that will let you switch from your current acc/atk setup to a more Hastey flavor. My generic recommendations:
Dusk Gloves: You may have Homam from DRK (considering the rest of your gear, you may even be able to switch from Homam > Dusk on that job too
) but a worthwhile purchase none the less.
Swift Belt: Not much to say here - you'll lose 5 acc, 5 atk and 3 STR for 4% Haste. Worthwhile imo. Keep it for WS, obviously. Or switch to Life/Warwolf, like Nila said, which is what I do too.
Turban/Askar Zuchetto: Bla bla, Haste in the head slot bla bla.
Together with your Aurum Boots, that's 14% Haste (13% with Askar Zuchetto
), which is still nothing to scoff at. Couple that Haste with your already great acc gear, merits, Haste/March and you're golden. Haidate are obviously best but you're pretty fucking
solid as it is.
P.S. - Kinda joking, but pull the "OMFG I have a god **** Adaberk for Christ's sakes! Move me up the Haidate list!"
on your LS.
