I've asked around my server and haven't really gotten a concrete answer.

I'm looking into making some elemental axes for my BST. I plan on doing the -PDT axes for my pet, but I'm not sure beyond that.

Should I make the axes that raise my pets attack, or axes that raise my attack?

I don't know which axes to make, help me please!

I haven't gone much beyond PDT myself but I've seen others talk about the double attack axes being good

Edit: those aren't elemental I guess, but I don't think I've seen anyone talk about any of the other elemental ones....

you won't find much of a consensus. Also it depends on what your goals are.
Is your goal for max dd? most players will probably tell you to make the player fire astolfo. I made the pet.

I use a DA GAnelon and a Pet Fire Astolfo
you can get a bit better damage by using (95) Guttler + fire astolfo

Pet magic def bonus axes and pet eva axes are quite useful as well. The first thing to ask really, is what you want to accomplish on bst vs other jobs (if any) No reason you can't make any magian axes you like.

However I highly recommend not to waste your time w/ Farsha. IF SE ever changes it, it might be worthwhile ... but until that day comes it is a huge waste of time. I have it and I never use it.

Xilk pretty much hit everypoint.
I consider the pet PDT axes to be required gear, but the rest really depends on how crazy you are about BST.
My order of importance would probably be;
Pet PDT Astolfo > Double Attack Ganelon > Master/Pet STR Astolfo > Pet Magic Defense Bonus > Pet Evasion.
Like Xilk said, do not create a Farsha. A 99 Master STR Astolfo is just as strong/ stronger than a 90 Farsha.
