Returning 75 WAR...basics to 95?Follow

I've been in Abyssea as WHM enough to know my way around, have Cruor, have Atma slots open, however I've never done anything as a melee character.

Currently my gear is mostly good 75 stuff (Adaberk, Haidate, Aurum Sabots, etc) but never got much of a good Great Axe passed Byakko's.

My thought based on what I've been reading here, for visible gear slots, at 78 look at Perle (replace all including Adaberk?), grab the Vermeil Bhuj from Abyssea - Tahrongi, and try to get some key DD Atma (Razed Ruins only one I really know).

I know what my role would be in Abyssea (red triggers/DD when appropriate), but I'm not sure what the best "focus" is for gear. Used to be get your accuracy up to 90%-95%ish then pile on haste/attack. Macro in STR gear for WS. Still basically the same? With all the boosts available through Atmas like Store TP, I'm not really sure what to focus on at this point.

Last 2 questions, what would be the recommended paths for Empy weapons and what good atmas should I look for to low-man Abyssea and basic xp parties?

Thank you everyone!

Zelus Tiara and 4/5 ravager +2 is a goal to start. I generally use RR/SS/Apoc for atmas. If I am trying to proc w/ weapons I may swap out SS for VV, but either way its not a big difference. A laceratrice or a Maschu for Ukko's fury would be your best bet for GAs. Rule of thumb is to focus on getting 25/25% haste, 6hit, then worry about other stats. Your adaman hauby can get 5STP and DA, if you feel like rolling the dice and trying to augment it. Goading belt is awesome for its STP and Haste.

Only difference in gear would be crit rate/damage stuff in some places instead of STR/ATT. Ravager feet and head are both examples of that.
