Right, well here's my current gear set.

Aside from Kamome, I'm not sure where exactly to go from here.

Thoughts?

Mainhand - Kakesu at least, but I'd recommend a +Str Magian Katana, a Kannagi, or something else along those lines.
Ammo - Good for most things. Can swap to a Qirmiz Tathlum in Abyssea
Head - Iga Zukin +2
Neck - Rancor Collar (w/ capped Tonberry hate)
Ear1 & 2 - Nothing's replaced them yet
Body - Thaumas Coat (Can use Porthos Byrnie till then)
Hands - Tenryu Tekko +1 w/ augments are the best, but a more readily obtainable hand piece would be Koga Tekko +2
Ring1 - Epona's Ring
Ring2 - Can keep it
Back - Atheling Mantle
Belt - Twilight Belt (some new sets focus more on Dual Wield over capping haste and still maintaining a higher hit rate, so possibly Patentia Sash in here instead)
Legs - Koga Hakama +2
Feet - Iga Kyahan +2

That set is basically the norm, but it's one of those sets where it doesn't necessarily work if you obtain it piece by piece. It works well in its completed form, but you'd lose out on one thing or another if you to say, use Thaumas Coat without having Koga Hakama +2 as well and things like that.

A more immediate setup for you might be something along the lines of the set up I listed above, but rather than Thaumas body, Koga +2 legs, and Iga +2 feet, stick with your Ninja Chainmail and use Iga Hakama +2 and something like Usukane Sune-ate as your feet. You'll lose out on a little bit of overall attack speed in comparison to the listed set, but it's a very good interim gear set till you can get some of the harder to obtain pieces to make the above set work.

And just so you know, you didn't link your gear set properly off AH. The link you wanted to use was this, not what you used, since that /members/ and id= redirects me to my own gear sets rather than yours.

I did most of my NIN from 75 to 99 soloing GoV in Zeruhn Mines. The skillup ring is a lie.

Quick question...

Would I be able to go down the STR elemental path then again through the AGI path?

Also do you have any guesstimate on how long these take to complete from square 1? I know it depends on playstyle, but any kind of ballpark?

Yes.

Wind path you should be able to complete within a few days as the trials require wind weather or day, which wind weather is more frequent when it is spring ingame. Alot of people work on wind path trials so teaming up is also an option.
Fire path will take you a few weeks because fire weather is very rare but still occurs around summer ingame for a short time, as you would be doing most of the trials during firesday.
