Hello all, looking for a bit of gear advice. I was lazy for 80-85 and let NIN subjob languish at 40, but now that 90 and beyond are upon us I really want to get my nice full subjob back. So, a push for NIN40-49, avoiding Abyssea leeching.
I have a lot of holes in my NIN gear, but I'm also not sure what role I should be gearing for in state-of-the-game Vana'diel. Tank, expecting a traditional party role? DD, expecting to see a lot of ERon? Mage, as T2 Ninjutsu were already potent at 40 and the update added a damage bonus for high ninjutsu skill?
Here's what I still have on me, packratted away or from MNK evasion set:
Weapon2: ??? Have a Parrying Knife but all my other katana are really low level
Neck: ? Spike necklace maybe?
Earrings: Dodge or Drone
Body: ??? Have a Jujitsu Gi if ACC > ATT or EVA
Hands: ??? Have Okotes if ATT > EVA
Rings: Snipers or Puissance (l36/+3STR)
Back: ??? Have Nomad's Mantle or High Breath Mantle if either of those are good
Waist: Survival Belt
Legs: ??? Think I still have my Jujitsu Sitabaki or Republigar. Hume M RSE is MP, MND, -STR
Feet: ??? Almost nothing this low - power sandals (l18, +3VIT). No Fumas. PS - Are you kidding me? 100k for Fuma Kyahan, 7k for Fuma Sune-Ate? What has the world come to ><
As far as INT gear I don't have anything to speak of but it seems like wands and int rings aren't too expensive, if that's the way to go.
I enjoyed Ninja so I'd like to "do it right", but I'm not sure on the wisdom of spending a huge amount of gil on leveling a subjob a few levels. Thanks for any input!
