I'm working on bayld gear for my nin atm, and I've asked people in ls if the loss of 5% DW is worth it (for TP gear) compared to the stats from Shneddick body, but everyone seems to have a different opinion. Haste is capped without the shneddick body, so the haste from it wouldnt make any difference.

Should I keep ninja chainmail +1 and only use Shneddick tabard for ws? Or is the stats on Shneddick enough to make up for the DW loss?

That's great and all. But since I asked about 2 other body pieces, you might be able to assume I don't have Thaumas? No? Ok, let me clarify.

I'm asking between Shneddick and AF body, because those are the ones available to me right now.

AF body for TP until you get Thaumas.

I assume when you're not capping gear haste then 5% haste > 5% dual wield since you're not losing tp?

Haste caps at something like 25.x? So if you have 20% or less on your other slots shneddick should win? if you have 21% haste on other slots I'm not sure if that fraction of a % affects the outcome. 22% or over then af body will win.

There is really 0 reason to not be at 25% haste on NIN at this point in the game.

AF Body should still pull ahead. Shneddick should only pull ahead if you need the accuracy or are gaining a fair amount of crit hit rate from dDEX (even then it depends on the rest of your set and how much crit hit rate you're getting, but should generally stick with AF body).

It's not that easy, especially if you're getting any kind haste or march. Patentia's actually better for a good amount of situations, over Twilight, and then there's always Windbuffet if you're really getting crazy with buffs (unlikely on ninja, but may as well bring it up).

Iga head-6%
Thaumas coat-4%
Otronif/Mani feet-4%
Otronif hands-4%

The other slots should be self-explanatory.
