I personally have to disagree, Vlorsutes. I still carry around Sha'ir Gages for Ballads and einherjar lullabies.
I was meaning strictly as far as buff potency and debuff accuracy, not any additional haste or recast pieces. As far as hands go, things like Dusk Gloves or in your case Sha'ir Gages would be good to throw in for recast times, but in terms of buffs and debuffs themselves, Choral Cuffs +1 are unbeatable (unless they add something in the 81-99 range that trumps them, but that's down the road).
