I was hoping to get some advice on gearsets for RDM with Mandau. It is embarrassing, but I haven't really played rdm in a while and am pretty much clueless on current gear. Yet and still, I would like to do it right, so any advice is appreciated.

If I could get suggestions on optimal sets as well as sets that don't use r/ex voidwatch gear, (as I have yet to touch that event and would be a while before I could obtain said gear), that would be great.

Also, what ws should I be using? I know unstacked mercy on thf isn't an option, but is this the case for rdm as well?

If it helps;
elvaan
95 mandau
str/dex merits
5/5 exenterator

Again, any advice is appreciated, and thank you.

I was playing around with some gear a few weeks ago and came up with this


Since you don't want to include vw gear I suppose you could use Dux mail +1 instead of Kuzdu. The tp sets should be similiar to the ones discussed in the other rdm melee threads. Mercy stroke isn't all that terrible unstacked even on THF at 95 Mandau (compared to evisceration), should be worth using on RDM.

edit: I havent really looked into extenterator, it might be better with the right gear

RDM can't use Gigantes for feet, probably would want one of the attack options.

I'd go with STR sword for off hand, though if you didn't put merits into sword but you did with dagger then that dagger would be fine.

If you "must" have STR on feet slot, the Trophy feet from abyssea for the RDM/BLU set can get up to +6STR augment on them.
