I just straight tank everything. The only time I ever have any issue with stats is that silly AoE stun move. I've yet to die from it but I've come near dying (lowest was when I was at 4HP and the next swing by stat missed me! lol).
The biggest thing to know about soloing stats (and almost anything) is to save violent flourish for when :ni is down and you go to cast :ichi. Violent flourish is an AMAZING ability and well worth using as much as possible! Especially when you decide to play around with Amemet and run out of shihei at 90%! Lol. (Btw, yes I blood tank solo'd Amemet on Dnc! You learn to turn when you think he's gonna TP as to miss that petrify move.)
As for my gear, it's absolutely nothing amazing. Gear only accentuates skill, but it does help. Just have a clear mind and put some thought into how you're gonna solo the mob.
Off the top of my head, I cast ichi and ni in my haste setup which includes: w.turban (I use it over mu purdy li'l denali bonnet for obvious reasons), dusk hands, dusk feet, swift belt, rap. harness, and various evasion skill+ pieces.
My full blown evasion setup consists of: Azoth, O.Hat, SH+1, Praefectus Gloves when applicable, Evasion Torque, AF1 Feet (I can NOT find Emissary Boots!), Boxer's Mantle, Denali Legs, and Scouter's rope.
I would list my haste/accuracy setup but really it's roughly the same gear as my evasion/utsusemi gear, heh.
Dancer is amazing job, sadly there isn't a whole lot I can upgrade to at the moment aside from denali hands (floor 60 HATES me!) and some expensive pieces like Avalon Breastplate. I hope this clarifies what gear I use when soloing those silly IT mobs!! (^-^)
