'Endgame' Tanking TP GearFollow

So here I am, Bored waiting on people to show up for Limbus.
Omega tonight (if people turn up >.>) so I was getting out my usual PLD gear and I started looking at my TP Set for Omega. I think it's ok-ish as it stands but I would appreciate input from those probably much smarter then I.

Current TP Set;
Joyeuse, Koenig Shield, Lamina +1, Empty
Walmart Turban, Peacock Charm, Brutal, Ethereal
Haubergeon, Dusk Gloves, Ulthalam's, Snipers Ring
Amemet mantle +1, Swift Belt, Homam Legs, Homam Feet

Basically the 2 bold items are the ones i'm having the most trouble with.
I have Suppa so really I should put that in for Ethereal, i'm not taking damage so it wont give my MP anyway, but it's nice to get MP if I take damage before I can change to O-Shi or Ichi gear.

As for Body, I have a choice between Haub, Homam and Askar. I would like Acc so that rules out Askar for now. As for Haub/Homam I still find myself hitting for the odd 0 so the Atk and STR from Haub seem like the better choice. Maybe?

Anyway, feel free to rip apart any other gear choice you think might be wrong there, or offer suggestions for whatever else can be better.

P.S. If you think it makes a difference the only thing I dont tank is Ground Kings (But I do tank the KS99 variants.)

You have a solid build, use Haubergeon(try to aim for +1) over Homam. Homam is for excali plds. No one will fault you for using homam over hauby but 12.5-15att, 5-6str and possible Fstr in 1 slot go a long way for a pld. Supp on pld gets better with dual wielding swords while providing acc to a pld. Outside of that it offers you just acc, which isnt so bad but less of a bonus as the dual wield % it grants. Brutal+ supp is a good way to go. Keep Ethereal on only if you find you are getting hammered with TP moves, or cant keep shadows up for some reason. And even then, only if you feel you are lacking in MP.

I would say swap out that snipers ring, for a Rajas if you have it. Unless you are a mage only, I dont see any reason to ever pick anything over a Rajas. Rajas +brutal with a Joytoy will give you 1 less swing to 100 and give a chance at fstr. Potentially giving you 1 free WS(win)(DA on Joytoy *can* null that so ya)

A lot of PLDs like using askar head over Turban for DD, so that can be something to work for, I dont, but I dont have it yet ~.~
