Short and Sweet.

I am a career BLM. At least I am trying to be. I am amost done with ACP and tomorrow I will be getting my Body. MAB +4 no doubt will be one choice. My question is the second Aug, MACC +4 for obvious reasons, or the fast Cast +5 because I used /rdm 90% of the time.. Which did you choose and why? Thx

I'd pick the fast cast, cause its the only thing you can't get from a different body. My 2 cents.

Depends what options you already have available to you. Short and sweet, but the answer might not be short and simple. Please clarify what you have to work with. Do you have nq/hq weskit? working on morrigans? Goliard? nashira? Will you be getting them?

Small things like this, can help people help you with suggestions,with making the best combo for your job.

NQ weskit. No Morrigans gear yet nor any Nashira or Goliard. Those are things I am working towards but it will be some time til I am able to get those.I am a semi casual player with Most AH Gear, the best that can be bought in most cases, with the exception of HQ weskit, Witch Sash, and Ixion Cape. I do have all Relic Pieces. I will be working on the pieces mentioned, but it will take me some time because I just had a baby and my playtime isnt what it used to be. I dont have sea access yet so no Gear from there, and I havent done any Limbus or salvage yet either. Thx :)

In that case, a good combo would be Fast Cast, and the Macc. This would allow you to lower your recasts and lower the resistance on some spells.

A nuking piece would be the MAB and the Macc combo, this would be as strong as a HQ weskit and hold you for some time.

MAB + the fast cast, feels like a middle of the road piece, but it can be doable, I suppose. You would just be missing some acc. On some resistant mobs it could pose a small problem.

If you have goliard hands you don't actually have to choose magic acc. and instead go with a little bit of MAB. Just my opinion though.

Goliard hands are a lot like Igqira hands. They're a compromise piece for BLM that doesn't really have any practical use. Most of the time you want zenith, or you want AF1, or you want AF2 on your hands. You have to be sitting in a pretty narrow range of nuking accuracy for the goliard (or igqira) to actually be the optimal piece, and you can probably make a better improvement by swapping other gear.

I'm going to agree with hitoseijuro on this one. Go for Macc + fastcast, and use it as a substitute for Nashira body for drain and aspir. That'll make a bigger difference for you than the MAB/Macc variant will over an NQ weskit. Plus without having sea/limbus, an HQ weskit is far more accessible to you than Nashira body, even as a casual player.

This implies that you are working on it now or planning to do so in the future. If this is the case, I don't see the point in the Redingote for you. Just stick with a weskit until you can get the Morrigan's.

I want the Redingote. I am almost done with ACP. And as I said, its going to be a long time until some of the end game gear will become availible for me.

Also, thank you for the replies. :)

My BLM is mostly used for endgame so Macc is rather important. For that, I went Macc +4 and MAB +4. As far as accuracy goes, it's half point better than HQ weskit, and 1.5 higher than my NQ weskit. I guess it really depend on your play style. I don't find fast cast that useful for blm. Still use that 1 INT earring over loq. earring (which i got).

Of course, I don't mind to proved wrong on the fast cast issue. Just how much "faster" with loq. earring alone?

Loquacious Earring is said to give spellcasting time -2% and spell recast time -1%.
