Souleater Recast instead of LR effect if you do things other than Voidwatch... like ever. 5/5 LR Effect is for the pansy ***** DRKs that only do high tier Voidwatch, never read or do a single proc, and don't know what Stalwart Soul is. If you're in a situation to need LR effect merits, you should be getting buffs such that you don't need it.

1/5 Dark Seal is enough because of a fiasco with Relic +2 head... short version is that while it's a good precast piece the Augment for +50% duration doesn't affect Drain II which is what you'd want Dark Seal on to begin with, so it's pretty much a waste of inventory.

Going past 1/5 Diabolic Eye doesn't really matter til you have Relic +2aug hands, then it's rather ******** but still rarely used (see above: if/when all you do is Voidwatch)

And since you can then only take one of them to 4/5, it really doesn't matter. Nobody should look at you funny if you even just leave them both at 1/5, but the extra duration on DE can be helpful if you ever actually need it (I'm a 2-4 Scythe and Souleater sort in those situations though, so it's somewhere between redundant and counterproductive).

Hard to see it being anything but worthless when the mob runs out of TP to be drained anyway, total cap or not.

9 hours 40 minutes, Ding, 99 BST... yes this is a DRK ding so I can solo Krabkatoas after getting screwed (zero shells) on two pops.

Already been chewing on Apoc a little. Something like 10/70 shells so far, but no bynes. Might use it towards an Ochain too.

Woke up this morning, got a Colorful Abyssite 1/3 and Blue Abyssite 1/1. Poked LS and Fina sama came on SMN to make it easy. Dropped the last shell I needed.

Then I hopped in the usual La Theine worms group and dropped party every 15min to kill Mikey. Racked up the 17 nuggets I needed in the time I got about 17 merits as well.

Then I went and did Bastion for two hours because I'd bought DNC, DRG, and COR legs since working up the 9k credits I needed for Daybreaks and still needed NQ BST legs anyway. Aeolian Edge -> Snarl made it soooo easy to rack up 2k+ credits per battle, but then half the time some split portion or another group would come along, run past everyone, and one-shot the Martello. Now I remember why nobody does Bastion if they can help it.

Then I spent SIX MINUTES at four menus with 16 inputs per cycle for one Iridescent at a time, 50 times over.

All told, Fulgurante done within 3 days of leveling BST.

Congrats! Enjoy fulgurante ;-) Tried augmenting my armada today, best I got in 10 tatters was Stp +3 and double attack +3%. Guess that's a start lol

So in augmenting through tatters do you lose the tatter each successful synergy? Can you re-use the augmented armor piece in another synergy and chose weather to keep the results or not?

Side note to Rae 5/6 on the NIN leg +2 item and 4/6 on the DRK +2 leg item. That ****** dies three times without dropping ****. But I did learn that if you stay ~35 distance from him he won't spawn an add on you.

Figured out that with the Tactical Mantle I picked up with Busa, I can 5-hit OAT.

/SAM
Ace's
Goading
Brutal
Hagneia
Houyi's
Rajas
Rose
Hoard
Tactical

TP in +51, 19.6 returns.
WS in /SAM, Brutal, Rajas, Rose, Hoard, Tactical, Houyi's, +38 for 17.9 + 1.3's, 23.1 four hits, 24.4 five hits, miss-tolerant,WSing in Tactical though, hence 'prototype'. All it needs is an STP body, legs, or head (Preferably Phorcy's legs/head or Murzim Corazza) which cleans up the TP phase and drops the WS need into the 20s. I could probably find a substitution in my current gear or some other piece to get Tactical out of my WS set at least.

Also, that's why Murzim body is better than Enif body. +6 STP and 4% Haste. F*cking e-peen whores and their quad attack fetish... might as weill be 4% DA which means 'who gives a sh*t?'

Edit: Forgot I was using my DRK/MNK spellcast instead, which is that full STP load instead of WSing in Bomb Core and such.

Could use Tyrant ring instead of Hoard :P I agree that Phorcy legs and helm for the TP phase are great options, and Murzim body or Adaberk/Armada body with STP augments could free up some STP too.

So looking at it would give on TP phase:

Rose strap +4
Hagneia stone +3
Phorcy salade +5
Houyi's gorget +3
Brutal earring +1
Murzim body +6, Adaberk/Armada +4 to 6 preferably, remember reading +4 is the minimum for most builds
Tyrant ring +4
Rajas ring +5
Goading belt +5
Phorcy legs +5
Aces feet +5

Which would give +55 STP with /sam without the body, can work build around depending on what you got.

WS wise

Rose strap +4
Brutal earring +1
Rajas ring +5

Which would give +55 STP with /sam without the body, can work build around too!

From Busa's thread:

Raelix wrote:
Looks like we get to start working on Neo Nyzul groups and go whaling.

Porthos Byrnie
Hagneia Stone
Bale Earring
Ogier's Gauntlets
Rajas Ring
Tyrant's Ring
Rose Strap
Phos Belt
Dauntless Mantle
Fulgurante (OAT)
Brutal Earring
Houyi's Gorget
Phorcys Salade
Phorcys Dirs
Phorcys Schuhs

25 haste, +41 STP, /SAM makes 5-hit (WS in +5 STP), +53 Acc after DEX.

Good luck on the belt though. You can use Goading, Bomblet, and some 3% haste feet though. Ghadhab Nails would be first choice and are easy enough to get compared to the rest.

So:

Porthos Byrnie
Fire Bomblet
Bale Earring
Ogier's Gauntlets
Rajas Ring
Tyrant's Ring
Rose Strap
Goading Belt
Dauntless Mantle
Fulgurante (OAT)
Brutal Earring
Houyi's Gorget
Phorcys Salade
Phorcys Dirs
Ghadhab Nails

26% Haste, +58 STP /SAM, solid 5-hit, still rocking +47 accuracy.


Pretty much optimal sets before Limbus rework, so I'd start from these. ***** adaberk.


And before you tear into why I used the word 'optimal', it's because it matches the +Acc on a good WS set too iirc.

Outparsed a 90 Ukon and a 95 Apoc on Kirin tonight taking my rightful place on the top of the mountain with my dirty **** Fulgurante. Buffs were double March, Min, Haste, Hasso, LR (whole fight, ***** died before it wore) and RCB+1. I shoulda used SoulEater too just to really **** in their faces. They were a cool group though, we had good times.

700K down the drain and no W. Legs ;_; but ding worthy none the less as I'm drunk as balls.

Does Qilin resist Souleater or something? I can't figure out why my Reso average dropped 40% compared to an Aello run yesterday with roughly the same buffs.

We should look at doing Neo-Limbus then too, Murzim body is a great stepping stone and part of /WAR 5-hit.
