He's got it at 70-odd and loves his Hauby and his Company Sword to death (most likely gonna be working on Joyeuse). Prefers his MNK, but there you go; the way we've got our setup it's better to have our other potential PLD coming as RDM instead.
My friend's a Taru, though, and he's consistently getting ripped to shreds.
Consequently -- horror of horrors -- I'm working with him to get him turtled up, as wrong as it sounds.
Here's his 60-cap gear as he and I have tried to rework it, I'm open to suggestions for helping him out but the main focus at the moment is just getting his HP high, without risking him getting gobbled up by Omega.
T.M. Espadon +1 -- Iron Ram Shield -- nada -- Bibiki Seashell Gallant Coronet -- I.M. Gorget -- Stoic Earring -- I think Pigeon Earring Haubergeon -- Gallant Gauntlets -- Ecphoria Ring? -- I think Unyielding Ring Knightly Mantle -- I think Life Belt -- Gallant Breeches -- Gallant Leggings
He's eating Tacos purely for the Defense, I'd rather he ate Pescatora but in all honesty we're spending enough money as it is, and if he buys a stack of tacos then that's 14K for between four and six shots at Omega.
It's horribly turtle-tastic, I will admit. Like I said though, the focus is mostly on getting his HP high (he'd never have touched Iron Musketeer's Gorget with a barge pole otherwise!), 'cos he gets knocked about like nobody's business and needs that extra margin for when the AoEs start flying, even with Protect III and a generous dollop of Regen. He is trying to put a little bit back into his DoT output, though, with things like the Hauby and Life Belt, but I'm not even sure whether they should go as well.
Basically, I think "HELP" sums it up well enough... any advice would be greatly appreciated.
