Fell Cleave and all around being a good War...Follow

Looking for advice on my newest and potentially tied for favorite job!

Through this forum I have learned boatloads of information in conjunction with friends who introduced me to jobs (Samurai, Monk, Blu) and through this I've grown very good at those jobs.

War however, is a stand out. I know absolutely zero War players.

I'm working on skilling up now, but I'm lost on what to do for Magians. I read the forum a little bit but am unaware of some of the finer points. Right now I am working on my WSD+10% G.Axe because it is ridiculously easy and I figure huge dmg +10% = good. Plus, I can only do 5 trials at once D: (H2H Fire, Sword Fire, Sword OA2-3, GKT +100TP, Axe OA2-3) This way I can finish it in 1 day, rather than a week+.

My questions are pretty simple:

Gear to aim for? Anything that jumps out as vital? I cannot kill Fafnir, don't do Dynamis/Ein/Salvage/Assault, and Sky is basically done. Here's a list of junk I have:

Main: WSD+10% GAxe Trial / Byakko's Axe
Sub: Pole Grip
Ammo: Tiphia Sting (Darn you Thew Bomblet not being for War!)
Head: Perle / Walahra / O.Hat / Genbu's
Neck: Chiv Chain
Earrings: Brutal / Spike x2 / Minuet / Bushi
Body: Perle
Hands: Perle / Dusk
Rings: Rajas / Sniper's x2 / Ruby Ring
Back: Amemet Mantle +1
Waist: Swift Belt / Warwolf Belt
Legs: Perle
Feet: Perle / Dusk

As you can see, pretty bland :/

2: Merits? I figured so far I did 5/5 DA 5/5 Warrior's Charge 1 Tomahawk and then after maybe 5/5 Bers (acc with 2h should be fine right?) 4... Savagery or more Tomahawk?

Someone, I'd like to think it was either bsphil or milich, did the math and it came out that 5/5 Berserk/Double Attack is pretty much the best option, regardless of Dual Wield/Great Axe builds. Warrior Charge is a given, but beyond that the rest are pretty lackluster.

As far as gear, the +2 Legs and Feet are spectacular, and the +2 Body coming out is as well. With that, the +2 Head is a good upgrade, since you're not losing haste, but you're also not really near the cap either. There are a lot of options to upgrade for the back, so you should check on that as well.

Ammo Bomb Core/fire bomblet No excuses.

No idea why you have O hat, work on Emp head+1, Rings you shouldn't need x2 sniper's ever, Rajas for 5/6 hit, hoard if it drops an xhit and only if it does otherwise yes look into blitz, get a better Str ring doesn't matter what, Back Forager's/Charger's/Belenos/Cavaros for WS with crit atmas, waist look into goading from Lacovie in tahrongi/bullwhip from Ovni in La theine, Legs work on Emp +1, Body work on Emp+1 (can get seals from Dominion Ops, it's random from what I've seen so far however), Feet I have no idea why you have dusk if that's NQ if you own perle, work on Emp+1.

Thanks for reply. Was just listing all gear avail atm.

Emp items of course, but I have AWFUL luck with them let alone winning lots on seals.

Hoard Ring/Blitz Ring are well outside of my current spending range just yet(plus none an AH) if I need the Ammo as well. As is Forager's since the increase is so tiny.
Goading and Bullwhip are doubtful. I have 0 solo viable jobs and the people I do Ovni with have never gotten it to drop, and if it did first goes to Nin before me. If AbyLS did it, I don't want to think of how long I'd have to wait lol.

But I do appreciate the info to look into long term. In the immediate soloable range, I guess I am set aside Ammo and buying ring when I get a chance :)

Also thanks lolgaxe.

*edit* WOW Bomb Core is 5k? really? but other is 300k and 0 up... this empty AH crap is getting so old :(
