ACP body questionFollow

I've read about how it's Enmity/fast cast or gtfo, but I rarely tank anything endgame and was going to use the body for RNG, but I've had the dumb idea of a PLD burn for awhile now, and was thinking about using the piece for that.

So... I've been thinking

/NIN
Duel Wield/ATK?
Duel Wield/Double ATK?

or

/SAM
Store TP/Double ATK?
ACC/Double ATK?
ACC/Store TP?

I'm thinking Haub would be better as /SAM, since it has ACC and ATK, but I dunno.

Also: Yes, lolpld burn. No it's not the best exp ever, but the times I've done it, everyone had a blast, exlcuding the one time on Trolls when 2/5 PLDs came in full turtle gear... lol That was 6k/hour w/band on lol The other 2-3 times we averaged about 10k-12k/hour. Not zOMG exp, but we all loved it for the amount of fun we had.

You're really thinking about dedicating a body (when we can already use haub/+1) to parties that rarely happen and are inferior to normal exp parties when they do?

Yeah, I'd get more use out of it as this, than the tanking setup. Biggest thing I've ever tanked was Byakko, and that was because he caught one of the other PLDs with no shadows.

Plus, wouldn't duel wield with suppa make me swing faster than ACC/ATK on haub/+1?

Plus, Osode > RNG body I think, and I've almost got enough saved up for it (Although, the snapshot is kinda tempting.)

Well I'm gonna say you don't *have* to be /sam to make use of store tp.

I augmented my Nuevo Coselete with enm/fastcast because I needed a good casting piece, I've already got haubergeon for tp'ing.

However, accuracy+10 and store tp+4 would certainly make a decent tp piece even for pld, to help with tp gain for atonement. (If you have it.)

Swinging faster isn't worthwhile if you're not hitting. It's very conditional on the party you're in, the outside buffs you're getting, the food you're eating, and the mobs you're fighting. Even on the "little stuff," you'll probably get a bit more out of eating meat with more accuracy on than eating sushi and using this. While it could be a situationally more useful piece, I'd still trust my Hauby in most situations, from little guys to big guys.

Yeah, some of my other PLD friends in game talked me into ACC/DW Campaigning right now, I'm liking it so far. If anything it looks better than hauby imo lol
