"Bard's" gear, for the most part, are indeed better than "Choral". the only piece i have my doubt about is the body piece :/ its like a bard only assault jerkin kinda >_< i guess maybe good for soloing/questing/helping but lousy for anything where you dont plan to hear the battle music (which is nearly anything in party/alliance situation)

and yes, even string skill is far more useful than AGI+ ^^;; {instrument skill} > CHR for just about everything ^^

I agree with your assessment of the Bard's Justaucorps, but it is also generally accepted that the Choral Cuffs are better than Bard's Cuffs. I'll take 5 CHR and singing skills over wind skill and evasion.

Also, keep in mind that, as a 75 BRD, very little of my equipment is static. In a normal exp party, I regularly switch: weapon, instrument, head armor, body armor, pants, boots, and neck. Something that gives just CHR could be better for debuffing, but has absolutely no use for party songs, while something that gives skill has effect on the party too, and if you're not having any trouble sticking debuffs with the chr gear or the skill gear, you might want to switch to MP equipment to be able to better assist in curing and other WHM functions like bar-ra spells, it's all about switching to what best fits the task at hand.

every fight I'm in with a BLM goes something like this:

1. (Ready to Start Skillchain!)
2. Shaft starts casting Thunder IV.
3. Mob gets the effect of Ltn. Threnody (string)
4. Shaft gets the effect of Learned Etude (string)
/wait 8
5. Shaft gets the effect of Sage Etude (string) total: +25 INT
6. Magic Burst! Mob takes 1101 damage.
7. Mob is defeated by Shaft.
8. "Damn Shaft, you one baaad motha... shut yo mouth"
9. bard is grining to himself.

some other uses are +25 AGI for your ninja, +25 VIT for your PLD, or +25 MND for your MNK (HNM fights)

(Without my String Torque, my etudes only give +15 and my Threnodies are resisted nearly twice as often)

use a macro to swap these boots out for +CHR boots when you use a wind mob song like Elegy.

/equip feet "Dance Shoes"
/so "Carnage Elegy" <t>

/equip feet "Bard's Slippers"
/so "Wind Threnody" <t>

it's debatable whether +3 stringis better than +3 CHR on mob songs, but +3 String is 100% better than +3 CHR for party songs.

uh, these are AF2.... also, they are better than AF1 boots. at 70+, you will mostly be using string skill, so these are good. JSE might be better, i forget what the stats are on them. But, since you will be using string for Lullaby (Nursmaid's) and Threnody (Sorrowful), then string is the most usefull. please dont say stuff sucks when you don't know what you are talking about
