So when you say you want AH gear because you barely do end game stuff, are we talking about just gear that could be bought on AH? Are you a newer player with limited gil on top of having no end game LS? Just excluding sea/sky?
perdu voulge - you don't need end game for this, just shout for rank ups and merit (you need merits if you don't have the rare/ex gear)
berserker's axe would be next best, not sure why someone thinks 88/474 10atk would be better than 95/504, but fourth is okay if gil is limited
bomblet if you have the gil, bombcore if you don't
turban should definitely be gotten, it's "AH" in the sense you can just buy the coins
optical hat is also worth trying to get, which you just need to find a group going and get the cluster
PCC if you have the gil, chiv chain if you don't
What are the min reqs for being able to get Brutal? Think you just need to do one limbus run, but after that you can just buy coins
Assault earring is your best buyable one, fowling or merman after that
Haub(+1) and if you happen to get askar body from nyzul only Possibly worthwhile if you have enough STP to drop a hit
Dusk gloves for tp, alky bracelets are best for KJ/SC iirc, tara +1 for RR
Rajas/Ulth are a nice pair, you can work for Iota with Einherjar pretty quickly
Snipers/woods for tp otherwise, use whichever you have. Flame ring can be a good WS ring depending on what your using and on what (acc can be more important). If gil isn't a factor snipers+1/tors
Forager's or Cuch's depending on your acc and WS
Swift can be gotten relatively easily without an end game linkshell. Drop rate is debatable. Life belt is your next best tp option
WS in potent, possibly warwolf, though again with AH gear, acc more of an issue
Exocist's hose are okay 3str/acc, I would use them over thick's 2/5. RK breeches are pretty nice as well with 2dex/str 1.5acc/4.5atk, also worth using over thick. Askar are awesome if you can get them from nyzul with 5atk/acc 4dex
Dusk/Unicorn for tp, thick shoes (+1) for ws, then AF
Aurum are from ZNM, so you can try to find a ZNM LS or just shout to get, those are your best tp and also a solid ws booties. Amir boots are also relatively easy to get and 6acc/5atk is a good tp and ws piece given limited options
So it really depends on what your constraints are. There is a lot of gear that isn't buyable, but doesn't require end game linkshells to get (swift belt, perdu voulge, aurum boots, optical hat). Just because you don't have an end game LS, doesn't mean you'll be stuck with only AH gear.
ZNMs and assaults are two places to get some of the best warrior gear around!
