Is there anyway to pull without a PDT set because alot of them items i can't get
Why can't you get them?
My(Crap) Cleaving set is the following
Ravager's Mufflers +2(Heavy Gauntlets don't exist on Cerb, Melaco Mittens are still rare and pricey)
Ravager's Legs+2(Because there are no -pdt pants worth wearing. Well the ones from birareus but I kept tossing them.)
2x -4%PDT Dark Rings(I could never get anything higher, Jelly Ring better than one of those at least) The Dark Rings go up to -6%PDT which is great, but I just never saw them(Also -mdt)
Nierschuntz? Idk, -pdt waist from Turul.
None of this was all that hard to get(Besides Twilight Helm, which was pretty uncommon for me)
Grim Cuirass and Ruffian Leggings can both be purchased off AH, along with Heavy Gauntlets(Which probably don't exist on your server either) and Melaco Mittens(Which are far to pricey for me).
The -Pdt waist is generally a junk drop from Turul.
There's also Metallon Mantle(-4%) from Quetzalli in Abyssea-Tahrongi, but he never seemed to put out for me.
The Dark Rings can be farmed by any job that can make amber/pearl easily. Or you can get Jelly Ring/Patronus Ring even easier.
Twilight Torques drop like rain from any Shinryu. I also use a Killer Shortbow while cleaving, activates somewhat often and not like much else is going to help in this situation. There's a bunch of other -pdt gear that might be obtainable for you with little effort as well(Colossus Mantle, Earring? Also Dark Earrings from Abys-Vunkerl quest).
Gil and time are all you need for a crap pdt set, and honestly, that's enough for the mobs you would most likely cleave(Mandy's, Chigoes, Frogs, Coeurls in Tahrongi maybe).
If you're getting Phalanx at least. I only cleave with Rdm or Sch, never did the whole Perfect Defense thing, or had a need for anyone to actually cure me. Edited, Jun 28th 2011 11:57am by Uchitoru
