Hooray, stickied outside of the sticky sticky, so now there can't be any more sticky sticky complaints (which there shouldn't have been any to begin with) about said stickied gear.

...and sticky.

Hey Nilatai, I was just checking out the guide for acceptable pieces until I can get some of the endgame pieces, and noticed that you have Temple Hose in there.

Why? There is no point to wear it aside from Guard skilling, and that is also pointless, why doesnt it have a throw away disclaimer like Beat Cesti? Or do you need it for something else? Even Aikido pants have better +Counter.

Also, didnt Pahn do the math on NKote being better than O or BKote with Focus off and eating meat? Wouldnt Usukane Gote be an upgrade from NKote, and an upgrade from Ochiudos and Bandomusha with full set?

If you're going to store your AF, like i know most people do when they're not playing MNK, you need the full set. Also the title is nice to have. That's the only reason they're mentioned. However, i'll add something similar to Beat Cesti.

I think there's a link floating around about that in this thread. I'll link it next to the NKote though.

LV58 Spartan Cesti? little slower than TM hooks, but give a little acc and almost identical in damage. Nice alternative to CC/retal, imo.

What about Denali Bonnet? Gives one less haste than Walahra Turban and 3 attack more than the turban.

The above statement is misleading in multiple ways. You get +4 to str/dex at 60, you get +5 at 75. It's a solid replacement for snipers from 60 on.

Great guide. Is there any reason you haven't listed Chargers Mantle under back pieces? I see you listed the boxers which is imho far inferior to a chargers mantle for a mnk.

That's because Amemet Mantle +1 is better than Charger is. Forager's Mantle is even better. Charger Mantle is a waste of coins.

Edited accordingly. Feel free to make another post explaining why and i'll link to it next to Rajas. Smiley: smile

There was debate about the two rings in this thread, and I have a couple posts explaining some of the factors near the bottom of the first page. There's slight imperfections in the math I posted (this was before we'd gotten solid confirmation about 2 acc == 1% hit rate), but those actually favor snipers a bit, so the conclusion remains the same.

Simple explanation:

At 60 you get +4 dex, +4 str. +4 dex is +2 acc, so we primarily just want to look at 4 str (Rajas) vs 3 acc (Sniper). 4 str is pretty much a guaranteed +1 fStr. At level 60 with TMH+2's and base +4 fStr, another +1 is a 2.2% increase in base damage; 2.1% if using CC's. 3 acc is 1.5% hit rate; if your base hit rate is 70% (moderately low) then the extra accuracy is a 2.1% improvement.

So, without even considering the Store TP or extra +attack from the Str, the Rajas is on par with a Sniper for total damage at level 60, and thus a "solid replacement" from that level onward.

It's a minor detail, but Jaguar Mantle is 47, not 48. Otherwise this has been very helpful, thanks.
