Hi, I've been away from WAR for quite awhile and i'm Currently lvl 60. This is my current TP build:

Hvy Drk Axe
Pole Grip
Sip Turban
Hauby
5th Gloves
RK Breeches
AF Feet
Chiv Chain
Spike Earrings
Potent Belt
Jag Mantle
Ec Ring
Unyielding Ring

Am I in the right ballpark for nowadays? I don't have much gil so i can't really afford a WS set. :(

Ditch the AF Boots for the acc variant (Fourth, I think they're called). Upgrade to Amemet Mantle+1 in a level. Try to get a Swift Belt and Rajas Ring.

also try to get a woodman or sniper ring to replace the unyeilding. the rse2 boots are a great option. the 3 dex on them will get you more acc than the 2 on the 4th boots.

i only went with the unyielding cause i was under the impression DEX > ACC for GAXE. Should i swap both rings for woodsman?

Would be good, until you get a Rajas, which for the forseeable future will be glued to one of your ring slots.

acc>DEX for TP, use STR rings for WS.

the dex to acc ratio is 4dex = 3acc.

3 DEX ~~ 2.25 acc.

Pertaining to what i believe you are talking about, as far as DEX goes... If you have been fishing around for info, and had seen talk of DEX builds. Those are referring to when you are lv75+ and have access to large amounts of DEX and can cap Crit% on birds (117 DEX iirc, i'm retired from ffxi so I don't fully remember).

DEX-based TP builds were very niche. These days there's no real point in focusing on them. If you're fully optimizing a DEX/crit build, then you'll try to get Atma of the Razed Ruins, which has +50 DEX +50% crit rate (in Abyssea only, of course, but that's where most of the action is anyway). That alone will take care of it.

Also, if you have a higher job, or a friend, Belladonna is an easy, often uncamped nm, and drops Virtuoso Belt. 12 acc 4 atk which is incredible.

Edit. Nm is in West Sarutabaruta (S)
Timed Spawn on the ledge around (G-7) to (G-8) among the Rafflesia every 90-100 minutes

try to get your hands on an optical hat. the hakutaku eye cluster will be kinda expensive, however idk its been almost a year since i got it. 10 acc is well worth it on a head peice for a while, great for end game stuff if you need the acc.

O. Hat is a very nice thing to have in general, since you can use it on all jobs, filling ACC/RACC/EVA gaps if/when you have them.

That said, Ravager's Mask +1 has 7 STR 7 VIT 10 ACC 10 ATT and +3% Double Attack. While it is a WAR-only piece, and needs a further 15 levels to wear...it's pretty easily soloed by spamming a quest, and completely trounces O. Hat for ACC purposes on WAR. Long term, O.Hat isn't that useful. It's only great for ~5 levels for TP'ing, and on a limited basis after that for WS. Short of a RACC or EVA build, it's really not worth getting for 85 onward, purely for WAR.

Which is not to say that getting one is a bad idea. Just that time/effort should be considered when looking at doing so. It's probably not worth going too far out of your way for at this point, for WAR alone.
