As a warrior, do I need Regal Captains Gloves? And in which gear set do they belong to?

TL;DR: You do not need them.

If you get them and want to use them, they have a place in low accuracy sets, provided your accuracy is in the 60%-20% hit rate. Above 60 they do nothing at all.

Under 60% hit rate they can be very good as they basically let you keep using your storetp/multiattack set without having to swap any other piece for accuracy. Requires knowing in advance what your hit rate will be tho, and since the special effect is tiered, you want to arrange things so your hit rate is at the high end of the tier. A very niche pieces, all things considered... not needed by any stretch.

The only thing they're good for is finding an NM's evasion.

Old wiki covers some: https://ffxiclopedia.fandom.com/wiki/Damage_Types (recommend adblock)

And BG covers some in the resistance section on the right, e.g. https://www.bg-wiki.com/bg/Vinipata

JPs seem to have damage resistances listed here too: https://www53.atwiki.jp/bartlett3/pages/313.html (will need google translate, there's more pages in the sidebar)

Nice, thank you. The JP link is perfect. It seems to have all the newer type mob families listed, which is exactly what I was looking for.

When using Google translate it says:

Astringent Acuex
Zan-12.5% Rippled-12.5% Strike-75% Far + 12.5%

I assume Zan = Slash, Strike = Pierce, Far = Blunt and Rippled = uhh 2nd type of blunt?

There are two types of blunt, though, H2H for whatever reason is a different blunt type than clubs or staves.

Google trans isn't giving a consistent translation, but I believe:

斬(Zan)= Slashing

突(Ripple) = Piercing

打(Strike) = Blunt

遠(Far) = Ranged

Surprised they didn't have a separate H2H category, but I guess that doesn't matter on very many things (Caturae shields aside, I think just magic pots?).

Is that list accurate? It says Yakshi piercing = +0% but I recall it takes less piercing dmg.

I think it's fairly accurate but there's probably some mistakes and some of it is incomplete. I'd be inclined to agree that Yakshi probably has the same damage resistances as Wopket (-95% piercing) but I haven't tested it.

This page is interesting.

It lists the dynamis wave 1 and 2 statue levels for sandy and some of the stats for the high tier Leviathan fights. It also has player avatars I think?

Doesn't seem to list Teles as piercing weak either? I thought she was.

Which cape are we using for Ukko's Fury these days?

I seem to have a 10% Crit one but i'm using WSD which was probably due to the WSD bug.

I looked back in this thread and Saeval mentioned a DA cape over Crit, at least for when blood rage is up possibly?

Current set:
Code
={
    ammo="Staunch Tathlum +1",
    head={ name="Valorous Mask", augments={'"Dbl.Atk."+1','Accuracy+16 Attack+16','Damage taken-5%','Mag. Acc.+4 "Mag.Atk.Bns."+4',}},
    body={ name="Valorous Mail", augments={'Pet: "Dbl. Atk."+2','INT+7','"Store TP"+8','Accuracy+20 Attack+20','Mag. Acc.+16 "Mag.Atk.Bns."+16',}},
    hands="Sulev. Gauntlets +2",
    legs="Pumm. Cuisses +3",
    feet="Pumm. Calligae +3",
    neck="Loricate Torque +1",
    waist="Ioskeha Belt +1",
    left_ear="Cessance Earring",
    right_ear="Telos Earring",
    left_ring="Defending Ring",
    right_ring="Moonlight Ring",
    back={ name="Cichol's Mantle", augments={'DEX+20','Accuracy+20 Attack+20','Accuracy+10','"Dbl.Atk."+10','Phys. dmg. taken-10%',}},
}


Head is a DM Aug. I should probably ditch Loricate for the +2 necks HP+ and DD stats and make up that DT elsewhere.

Best bet is to use:

Staunch+1
Souveran Body- Accuracy Path
Sulevia Gloves+2
Dring
Moonlight/Vocane Ring
AF+2 Pants
Ambu Cape with PDT-10 or DT-5 depending on where you are at cap.

The key to all that is Retaliation, god I love retaliation.

Warrior tanks by smashing it's face into the monsters fist until the monsters fist breaks.
