what does the rest of your gear look like?
to go from a hauby -> hauberk+1 (coincidentally the same price as pcc) is a bigger increase than chivchain -> pcc. then again, the bonus will only apply to your war and one day your bst.
let me rephrase that. both sets cost ~the same
hauberk+1 + chivchain > hauby + pcc.
9str 6dex +17acc +12att > 5str 5dex +20acc +10att
4str 1dex 2att > 3acc
This is an excellent point, except for the supreme versatility that is the PCC.
PCC is useful in any level cap situation, and is useable on a host of jobs.
Hauberk+1 is only useful in uncapped situations, and on 3 jobs.
If you are a career war, hauby+1.
If you like other jobs, I'd keep the PCC and save for a hauby+1 later.
