True true.

Last question, due to it being missed.(i think)

MY tp setup. when im NOT /sam. Should i use Homam body or my Ares body ?

Thats a good one.

For the avarage target i would go with ares without doubts.

As for hnm/gods, I'm not experienced with drg but i would say it all depends on buffs. Taking my thf as a baseline, i think my drg without homam body or madrigal would have (very close to) capped acc on anything not kirin/byakko like. Thats with pizza though. I think in the end it comes to something like ares+pizza or maybe homam + real attack food.

edit: I did use a taru lol. The stat calculator is updated to lv80 and i didn't notice that lol. So yeah, in the end you will need both cuch and galea with dex (if thats what you have).

Hey let me ask a question..someone might have already said it..ohwell.

For ws on drg is it "acceptable" to use Delta earring until I get Pixie? (Or something better than Pixie) This would all be for Drakes right now I am using Bushi for Str+2.

Thanks in advance and sorry if this is the wrong place to ask this question.

Are you approaching high dDEX levels? Use it. If not? Don't.

Is what I use for WS right now with Drakesbane(+33 Dex in ws set) and shame on me for forgetting base dex but I think its like 67 maybe. so that puts me at 100 with Delta 102..nothing game breaking but a whole 15 dex below cap. /StupidElvaan.

I wouldn't use it there. Don't quote me but you're getting like 0.5% critrate if you're lucky from those two points of DEX. Similarly you may as well use a Flame Ring over Thunder.

Zahak's Mail/Nocturnus Mail and Hecatomb Cap will allow you to start pushing for 117 DEX as nonMithra (a sad fate for anyone).

I've had some bad luck with Ncap for like 3 years now..and as soon as Fiat Lux opens back up I can try for Noct head/Body..right now for me Zahak's is my next large purchase I plan on making but its a little ways off for me.

I was accounting for that extra acc.

Any chance you could snatch up a Love Torque or Flame Gorget?

I'm not a huge fan of DEX, DEX EVERYWHERE for Drakes simply because we don't have the kind of options to make it viable beyond Greater Colibri unless you're a Mithra with DEX merits. You're already well below the crit cap even at birds; if your hitrate can support it I'd consider swapping some DEX out (ring, maybe back but I think you need the acc there) for STR. That's also an additional advantage of Nocturnus Mail; it's a stronger piece than it initially appears simply because DRG WS sets often come up a tad short on acc if you go all-out on damage and you can make trades like Aurum/Zahak's/Heca -> Nocturnus and Cuchu -> Forager's in sets with some acc mixed in for small gains in both accuracy and offensive stats.

More likely for Flame than Love I really only need a UFO and like 5 more Shark Organs.

I know my gear isn't anywhere near "perfect" please you smart ppl critique my gears.

I can swap out Thunder for Flame Cuch to Foragers(acc willing) and swap Askar Head > Moogle expansion with fail augments of Str+4 ws acc, acc and attk (I know wtf was I thinking..actually I know what I was thinking but i'd rather not discuss it >.>) for adding acc.

Edit: I can also use Aurum Legs for more STR on ws over Askar with Dex.

Edit#2: Technically I could use Kubira Beads Necklace for more STR4 DEX4 but with uncapped acc that would be fail right?

Aurum would be better than Askar if critrate isn't affected, aye. You're also correct concerning Kubira Beads; you'd be much better off picking up a gorget and/or torque.
