I just finished my AF3+2 body today, meaning I have the following 3 body pieces available:

Ravager's Lorica +2
Grim Cuirass
Zahak's Mail

I'm having a hard time deciding which one to use under what conditions. Also, should I happen to get Twilight Mail, that will only further complicate the question. Anybody have any suggestions/definitive answers? Thanks!

TP in Lorica if it keeps you at your X-hit. In abby w/ zerk down or blood rage up WS in Grim, otherwise WS in zahak. Outside, Grim probably wins. Twilight mail for WTF hard mobs like your voidwatch stuff mainly, its only when you need a LOT of acc. If you can get fafnir to put out a HQ pop, Ebody is your most balanced WS body outside abby.

And if I don't need the STP from lorica for my x-hit, what should I TP in?

Back in the day, I never thought I'd see the day when Haubergeon wasn't an option at end game.

I happen to use the Lorica+2 most of the time. I could buy the Grim Cuirass or Zahak's whenever I'd like to and have debated at least buying Grim for a -PDT set round-out, but I've hesitated in case something that makes a bigger difference comes along after level cap. Does anyone have parse data from testing these different options? On paper they don't seem that different as a percent of total damage boosted by Atmas and so forth.

I've put these through Kinematics Spreadsheet, using RR, Apoc, Sanguine Scythe atmas, eating Bison Steak, and gear (what I'm currently using), with berserk down

widowmaker / Claymore grip / Ravager
Zelus / Rancor / Brutal / Ravager
Body / Perle / Rajas / Ecphoria
Atheling / Bullwhip / Ravager +2 / Ravager +2

Grim gives DPS 366.207
Ravager +2 gives 363.919

Grim is also winner for zerk down ws

Also as a side note, if Siphai does have crit rate +5% as reported on wiki, it's our best zerk up body for ws and tp

Are you accounting for xhit? fairly certain you can 5hit Widowmaker and looking at your gear from a glance Lorica isn't changing your xhit.

The 5% crit rate on Sipahi is highly suspicious if you ask me. If it doesn't have a source for the information I wouldn't trust it. Also that's with RR, Ukko's has a 30% crit rate (you'll have to change them manually on the sheet, RR itself should be 15% not 10%). Ukko's crit rate is over on the setup thread on FFXIAH, Raging's is on a blog about the triteness of weaponskills that Idr the link for offhand.

Just giving some numbers as to the difference between the 2

To get 5 hit with widowmaker needs 46stp (31stp in gear), no matter what I try I cant get a 5 hit that beats a 6 hit with max dd gear
