Why would you be using empyreon hands over relic+0 hands anyways? Unless your often in situations where you have your pet engaged out of range?
honestly? I know you dont have a stellar reputation, but can you not figure it out? +2:
6 str 5 dex 1% haste 6 store tp, pet +13 str/dex/agi, +2% chance to do double dmg if pet is at 100% hp +0 relic:
3% pet haste
You cant reach the haste cap with 3% gloves without further gimping the +2 set bonus and forcing additional inferior gear into other slots (blitz ring or tiercel neck). So while your pet may be gaining 3% haste, you are losing far more than that on the master side so it doesn't come close to balancing out.
The situations where i would recomend using the relic gloves are with pet only. The loss to the master is too significant.
I would be more than happy to crunch the numbers for you when i get home if you would like though.
Ohhhkay guess we are gonna play it that way.
First off I would like to say I really want to know how your capping haste "Without using gimp gear in other slots" Cause last I check full Cirque +2 + twilight only gave 24%. So Unless there's a piece I don't know about(Which is distinctly possible) you will need the very pieces YOU listed to cap haste.(2% worth if you want to be anal about it)
So let's look at the other stats you listed. First off 4 dex not 5. 2 dex on relic. Secondly inside of abyssea str and dex are not even worth mentioning. Your easily going to be going in with at least 190 on both stats if you got the right abyssites RR and VV. Outside of abyssea they are just not enough to compete with pet haste. Dex won't be high enough to make a major impact on crit hits. Accuracy shouldn't be that huge of an issue. Str will make a difference in every hit but really 3% haste worth of a difference? The pet stats while nice don't compare to 3% haste when trying to tp. And the stp even with the standard rajas isn't enough to make it worth while. It's nice icing though. And we get to the meat of this piece and disagreement the set bonus.
Now while under the stipulation your pet is deployed in range, which is a stipulation I did make in my original post, unless your just exping I don't know what nm these days does not have some form of aoe. Not in my memory have gone against something that was at or above my level that checked impossible to gauge did it not hit my automaton in some shape, way, or form. My pet's hp is in a constant state of flux. And if I happen to be using sharp shot? Pff that dude gonna gain hate at some point no matter what the tank or what I do. I certainly can keep it from dieing but keeping it at full hp? Not gonna happen. So I rather keep my pet dps up which is far more consistent then my set bonus. But hey that's me, I respected everyone elses' opinion on the matter. Not everyone uses pup like I do and not everyone has my limited options in jobs.
You, sir, I think need to remember what a forum is. Yes a lovely collections of trolls, opinions, and needless pointless drama and fights, but still a forum. A free exchange of ideas and opinions. Sometimes mine are right, sometimes they are wrong. That's why I come to forums. To broaden my view on any given subject so I can more competently make the right decision.(And of course entertainment) However, to bring reputation into such a minor disagreement as this, especially anyone reputation on a forum? Please. So stop /jobemote pupping me and go blow steam up someone else's ass.
