General gear advice as a fresh DRK Follow

I'm going to be leveling DRK and I'm wonder what the basics of gear choice are at 99. What I can use off the AH until I get empy gear, etc..
What am I shooting for with gear? Store tp, acc, str. Like aim for X amount of stp. What gs/scythes would be good to start with and work towards.

If you have gear questions, it's better to give us a list of what you're currently planning with its conditions (for example: no empy gear), then we can critique that set.

At level 99 though, Great Sword is better than Scythe, if you have the merit WS Resolution.

for the purely casual, lazy, groupless or penniless player Perle Gear stands in good stead at 99, if not someone tell me cause I can't find anything else that matches can be gotten with those 4 conditions :P

I've been told the best and easiest soloable Great Sword to get is the WS dmg +10% Kauriarius or how ever you spell it.
With be boring as **** to get it though but the best soloable one out there.

Accessories...
Someone else post em cause I'm not even sure what's available anymore.

5/5 Perle til you have at least Head/Body/Hands +1, then those and Jingang Hose/Calmecac Trousers and Ace's Feet or other haste feet. Homam legs and feet are still valid too, just remember you have to have 5/5 Perle for the set bonus.

Even then, Perle will stick with you as WS gear for a while.

Assuming I'll be aiming for resolution, which GS should I work towards. OAT?

For a TP set, you should focus on reaching 100tp quickly. Store TP is important, but only if you are able to reach a specific hit-build. Haste is important, but only if you can actually hit what you're fighting. Accuracy is important, but only if you have low accuracy relative to the monster.

Most other stats including STR and Attack should not be the primary focus of a TP set. Weaponskill sets depend on the weaponskill, but usually focus on STR, Attack, and Accuracy.
