The only job I have capable of equipping the Marduk's Jubbah set is Bard, a job I love and enjoy spending time and effort to maximize potential for. I've come to the point where after a few more select items on the AH I will have run out of non-rare/ex gear to obtain so I have been looking into rare/ex gear and Salvage gear caught my attention for possible upgrades. As much as I love trying to maximize Bard I follow a rule that the upgrade must be worth the time and effort spent for me to go after it which has caused me to question whether or not I should try for the Marduk set.
I've looked at each individual piece and perhaps I'm missing something but with the exception of the legs for enfeebling the rest of the set seems overall worthless.
Tiara: With Merits, capped skill, and various AH + Rare/ex gear one can get 547 combined Wind and Singing skill making the +1 skill this piece has over Demon Helm +1 useless, at least for March tiers.
Body: Only 1 more Mind and Charisma over Mahatma Houppelande for 12mil.
Hands: AF +1 hands are better.
Legs: Perfect enfeeble piece, only worthwhile piece in the set that I've seen.
Feet: Suzaku Feet for Stone Skin are better and the +String skill is unappealing.
Am I just missing something or is the only piece worth the time and effort the legs?
