Last time I post this, I promise. But I need some advise on the gear, being the best SAM is my thing. Every SAM in FFXI is working toward getting a relic, or getting the best gear to be the best at SAM. Just asking in expert opinion, which would you believe would be better performance. Ppl always asking for a new 6 hit setup anyway so kinda the same thing ^^b
Augument Head has
http://ffxigear.com/?ref=15736 5hit TPing Gear
http://ffxigear.com/?ref=15745 6hit TPing Gear
http://ffxigear.com/?ref=15739 5hit WS gear
http://ffxigear.com/?ref=15746 6hit WS Gear
Biggest Things that stand out for me
+30 Attack During TP
+15STR on WS
+3INT on WS
-35 evasion -5 AGI with +9Enmity <~ can't stand this, got capped parrying but still.
+26% Gear Haste 6HIT
+2% Double Attack
+22 Evasion with only +3Enmity (List+12 but doesnt count head bonus)
+18% Gear Haste 5HIT
+3STR+5DEX while TPing- Think 5DEX is +0.5% Crit or something idk.
+20Acc +8Dex while WS (I know it does nothing for Damage but I hate missing WS)
+5 Subtle Blow TPing (not really much to you, but I like it^^)
These are things that will make or break the staple imo. I believe this is the best 6 hit gearset for doing damage and WS for IT+ Mobs. If not feel free to change.
From the looks of it, 5 hit favors Skillchaining with PT, and /DRG since you'll most definetly get a SC every jump/meditate/sekkenoki now. It also is a clear+ 57 Evasion Boost over 6hit which to me makes up for the lower attack and WS, cause clearly, if your a good SAM, your a tank.
6Hit gives you more plain damage in the attack and WS department, which seems to be a clear trade off for survival, kinda like RNGs. I love haste, seeing your character swing a GKT fast is always entertaining.
Anyway, from the amount of haste% added in with the info from FFXIGEAR and added all JA and sub JA's, which you guys think is better to reach for?
I got a tell about the cost of the gear differences, and the 5hit actually cost less than the 6 since black tathlums are freeking 12m on my server compared to 2m for white, and haichiryus are selling for 35m. So its a thing of Difficult to Obtain Usukane body piece, Ekidnu legs, or spending an extra 45m in Cost.
