I think my drg is bassackwards...

Picked up some Tabin boots+1 and an Assault Earring since my Penta acc depressed me... Finally got a pt, headed to Puks, Drg/sam. Without bard my pentas were doing about 158 average. Sync'd 60. Then Sync 61, with Bard pentas barely hit 200+ -IF- i was lucky.

Now... Finally learn Skewer, **** level sync... 1st Skewer... 485 dmg.

I consistantly did more dmg with Skewer then with Penta with Acc and Atk songs. Isn't Penta supposed to be better? >,>

Now I'm 62, Tabin boots +1 acc+3 nice and all... but my taru rse boots and the str+4 equates to Atk+3. I can't decide which to stick with. Current gear with RSE /sam I hit 320 atk total. 323 with Hasso and +41 acc from gear. With Tabins 317 atk and +44 acc... 320 Hasso.



Were you eating sushi? Eat meat, go /WAR. Try going back to those Puks at level 62, or stay with the Lesser Colibri till 61-63 (can't remember when the cutoff point is exactly). Can you post your gear?

ALl my gear was posted 10 posts up... the only things changed were 1 assault earring and tha tabins+1.

And yes, I was eatting sole sushi.


And I'd love to go back to ANY camp... I spend about 6 hours waiting for a pt now-a-days if I don't give up.

Super fail.

No, you don't need sushi. As said, /WAR+meat will do you better.

I hit 75 recently and have some expensive pieces (due to crafting/HELM for most of my play time...) but I'm no stat guru so go easy on me if I've made any bad choices, I'm doing the best I can.

TP
MAIN: Thalassocrat
SUB: Pole Grip
AMMO: Tiphia Sting
HEAD: Walahra Turban
NECK: Peacock Charm
EAR1: Assault Earring
EAR2: Fowling Earring
BODY: Zahak's Mail
HANDS: Dusk Gloves
RING1: Woodsman Ring
RING2: Woodsman Ring
BACK: Forager's Mantle
WAIST: Life Belt
LEGS: Conte Cosciales
FEET: Dusk Ledelsens

Penta Thrust (this one has me a bit more confused, I'm never sure how much accuracy I should sacrifice for mods, if any, but here's what I've been doing lately):
MAIN: Thalassocrat
SUB: Pole Grip
AMMO: Tiphia Sting
HEAD: Wyvern Helm
NECK: Chivalrous Chain
EAR1: Assault Earring
EAR2: Fowling Earring
BODY: Zahak's Mail
HANDS: Tarasque Mitts +1
RING1: Woodsman Ring
RING2: Woodsman Ring
BACK: Forager's Mantle
WAIST: Warwolf Belt
LEGS: Conte Cosciales
FEET: Marine M Boots

I have some other gear like Optical Hat, Dusk Legs, +Str rings, etc. which seem nice but I'm not sure if they'd be worth using over what I use now. I'm fully open to suggestion so any ideas are appreciated.

Hey, folks. I got 75 a few weeks ago, and I've only had enough time for one merit party; I've got a level 3 Polearm modification, and one in Angon. I'm pretty sure I'll be capping out Polearm first, then probably mix and match Angon and jumps along the way, though Deep Breathing somewhere down the line would be useful (I prefer to go /WHM over /SAM, since Saurian Helm).

Main: Thalassocrat
Sub: Pole Grip
Ammo: Tiphia Sting (Angon is briefly swapped in and out for use)
Head: Walahra Turban for TP / Optical Hat or Wyvern Helm for WS
Neck: Peacock Charm
Ear1: Assault Earring
Ear2: Fowling Earring
Body: Assault Jerkin
Hands: Dusk Gloves / Spiked Finger Gauntlets
Ring1: Sniper's Ring
Ring2: Woodsman Ring
Back: Amemet Mantle +1
Waist: Swordbelt +1
Legs: Barone Cosciales
Feet: Dusk Ledelsens / Marine M Boots


I'm about 100 or so points from having 20k MJSP points, and I can either buy Amir Boots, or Pahluwan Seraweels. I was initially going to go with Amir Boots first, but now I'm not so sure--will the Marine M Boots outdo them for WS, assuming accuracy on G.Colibri is at a comfortable level? I'm working on getting a pair of Dusk Trousers as well, but now I'm unsure if I should stick with Dusk or go with the Pahluwan, or grab both for TP and WS, respectively.

Beyond that, I don't know when I'll get a chance to grab some Aurum Sabatons, Swift Belt, Homam, or Hecatomb gear. Sea is just around the corner now though, and I'm working on Zeni, but there's no telling when I'll get a chance to get any of them (I have yet to join an endgame shell due to time constraints). I'll work on molding some AH-derived STR equipment into my WS set, but for now, that's about all I can do.

Thanks in advance; any suggestions would be appreciated.

I very highly doubt you have the accuracy to pull off Swordbelt +1 as a fresh and mostly unmerited 75. Go back to life.

Personally I would go with dusk trousers + amir boots.

You could work on getting TOAU done :)
The ring is very nice and its a fun, easy line of missions with cool fights.
Also, you can get started on Nyzul for some askar and your mythic WS, drakesbane.

My gear.

I really need to do something about my ranged slot, I know. But with Drachen Brais +1 with 3/8 merits, would I be able to pull off Sword +1? I'm doing Limbus and am getting close to full lotting because most of the people with more points have what I want already, so I'm thinking of Homam Body, Feet, switching to Dusk Trousers, and Swordbelt +1.

This will be my setup until I start doing Nyzul for Askar gear. I don't like PUGs so I'm trying to find people for a static.

Also, if someone could point me to a Aurum Vs Homam feet thread (or say which is best) that'd be great.

So my friends and I just got very lucky and landed 2 Peacock Charms out of 3 Under Observation runs. With an extra 1.2mil lying around, i'm trying to think of big upgrades I need. I'm lvl 60 currently and my gear is:

Main: Dark Mezraq
Sub: Pole Strap
Head; Walkure Mask
Neck: Chiv Chain
Ear: Spike Earring
Ear: Spike Earring
Body: Scorp Harness
Hands: Spike Finger Gauntlets
Ring: Venerer ring
Ring: Ecphoria ring
Back: Jaguar Mantle
Waist: Life Belt
Legs: Taru RSE
Feet: Bounding Boots

I'm going to buy an Amemet +1, which is 150k on my server. I may swap a Venerer for a Sniper which is 200k. Another option is obviously Assault Earring...but i'm honestly going to have a hard time shelling out 300k for 2 acc. I know it's in a slot that doesn't generally give acc, but I don't feel like 2 acc is going to improve my performance much.

Any suggestions?

Get a GKL unless for some reason DM is much cheaper, consider Woodsman instead of Sniper, and DEFINITELY consider Assault Earring because it is that good.

other than that, you're pretty much on the ball.

i'd get the assault earring, partly because it lasts forever (i still wear mine after getting tons of r/e stuff and becoming rich). GKL is better than DM, but it's not a huge difference. PCC itself is a nice upgrade, though DRG does have (and end up with) a lot of ACC. also, GZA's first album is very good (first post-wu-tang album i guess i should say, if words from the genius--which is awful--counts). oh, and a tiphia sting.

WS Gear is: - http://www.ffxiah.com/members/?q...;add_item=1

Warwolf Nelt
Hecatomb Subligar
Aurum Sabatons (Hecatomb Leggings maybe better?)


Also, if you're likely to be just a meripo Drg... is Angon still worth meriting?(I imagine yes but just looking for clarification).

@#%^ing ****.


lol, you two make me laugh.

Okay, first... there was nothing wrong with my question. I know that Angon is an exceptional ability and one of the largest pride and joys exclusive to the Dragoon job. In some instances it's the only reason why Dragoon's are permitted to attend an event on that job. However, Angon while phenomenal, is mostly associated and discussed about in regards to HNM events and what not. That's why I posed my question. Just because Angon is good for taking down Dynamis Lord (or whatever you happen to be using it on) doesn't mean that it's necessary for meriting on Greater Colibri. Sure you'll do more damage on a bird with it, but if you're losing chain on birds... I don't think Angon will save you.

I love how people will complain about the stigma of this job and how poorly their fellow Drg's are equipped and how much they suck at the game, yet... if anyone attempts to gain a little knowledge on how to do their job better they're greeted by responses like this. Way to go guys, you're the creator of your own problem.

Secondly... you'll be thrilled to know that I got my V. Fork when I was a level 66 Drg with absolutely no gear for the job Cherubs (aside from what I already owned from other jobs I guess). Went free lot to me at our first Odin due to none of the 75 Dragoon's having access. Ain't that something? Wanna cry about it? I know someone you could talk to. /comfort

No, dont merit it, you wont get better exp per hour. Its all about keeping chain, not building the said chain faster or making more DoT, which would inevitably kill your exp and make you a l0ldrg. Truefax.

Merit it once by all means, as you may find yourself using DRG for other things, but if your primary use for DRG is as a merit-catcher then leave it at one upgrade.
