Well, finally getting my rng up to snuff and on the verge of bedlam for WF, so creating my macros/gear sets now. Most of it is pretty clear cut to me, but there are a few slots I am unsure about the agi/MAB options. So heres my planned WF gear.

Main: Vulcans
Sub: Rose (if dont need stp, does Wise Grip Crit work for it? Otherwise Fire Grip)
Head: Bersail Cap 8agi/MKD 2 of: agi4 ws dam+2%/mab2/mag crit rate +10%(Which?)
Neck: Uggy pendant/Arctiers (which?)
Ear: 3agi/moldy (obviously plan to upgrade to Hecate/Novio when able)
Body: Sylvan+2 (Some ACP body aug?)
Hands: Seiru's Kote
Rings: +7 agi rings
Back: Forban cape
Waist: Aqualine belt/7agi Sveltesse Gouriz (which?)
Legs: Denali/10 Agi ambushers hose/ASA Leg Augs? (which?)
Feet: Sylvan +2

What would you guys recommend for the unclear slots? Or if there is something better for any spot for that matter. I have now mad all 3 of my original (lv 75) augments from mini expacs obsolete, so the head/body/legs from those are also up for grabs if they are superior.

I guess i am still a little unclear on the WF damage formula in general, and with affinity being something different from staff boost and both different than MAB. I am not sure how to properly weigh the gear options. And does magic crit stuff (wise grip and MKD augment) actually work on magic WS? If so, how much damage does it add?

Thanks in advance.

I think the general idea is a little more than 2 AGI are worth 1 MAB. I think a RNG can get away with more AGI as it helps with RACC and WF resists. A COR wants to keep more MAB around since AGI doesn't help QD damage.

So I'd go:
MKD with WS damage Ag4 and WS ACC str4, Uggly, Sylvan +2, Aqualine, Ambushers (Denali likely equivalent or very close)

Why would you go with WS acc and Str augment? Both are useless for Wildfire.

Because its such a good augment for so many other WS and there are not that many head pieces that can top WS ACC/STR 4. So I'd hate to give up that utility to the MKD head just to make it solely work for WF. But if you have better headpieces for your other WS, go ahead and make the MKD hat a pure Wildfire piece.

My rng can afford to be specialized. If I am on rng, it is not for epeen slugwinders (thats what my drg and Twashtar Thf are for :P). I am just getting the WOE gun/bow for funsies on rng for a change of pace from melee spank. Aias bonnet will cover Jinshu's, which just leaves WF.

I am looking for the 'ideal' WF gear wherever it may be found. If that is an augment that isnt useful for anything else, thats fine.

So if you access to basically anything in the game, what changes would you make to the set for an idealized WF set?

This is my ideal Wildfire/Trueflight gear:
Apollo's/Vulcan's | Grip* | Gun | Bullet
Anwig Salde** | Uggy Pendant/Arctier's**** | Novio | Hectate
Mirke Wardecors/AF3+2***, **** | S.kote | Stormsoul | Stormsoul/Rajas*****
Forban/Sylvan***** | Aquiline/Scout's**** | Denali|Ambusher's|Af3+2****, ***** | AF3+2


* Grip: Pax for Enmity-, Reaver for Agi+2. The Elemental Grips are a nice idea but I doubt you need Macc+2
** Anwig Salade: AGI/WS Dmg, MaB Augments
*** Mirke Wardecors: MaB. If you have Cor too, get QD augment as 2nd. With Armageddon, you may aslwell lvl Cor!
****: For this slot, I am unsure on the AGI vs MaB.
*****: This is a STP concideration. If you need STP to keep your Xhit, put it in here. If not, nevermind!

Got my Bedlam+2 last night. Only got to do a couple WS on pansy mobs in bubu then tried out Smoldering/Ultimate/GH in attowa on some mandies. I was thouroughly unimpressed outside abyssea with damage around 900. Inside I believe it was 3844 for all 3 WS i did before I died (now i know the black mandies link xD it was past sleepy time anyway)

Using:
Vulcan/Rose/Bedlam+2
Bersail/Arctier's/Moldy/Drone
Sylv+2/Seiry's/Breeze/Solemn
Forban/Aquiline/Ambusher's/Sylv+2

Still looking around for a rani to brew for hecates obviously and camping AH for uggy+svelt g. belt (goin on the ~2agi=3mab. Figure that 7agi will beat 3mab. At least can check it out. And obviously +7 agi rings would be nice and on my list if price keeps droppin.

But, i was a little underwhelmed after all the crazy things people say about it :S
