Just started BLM today, more or less....

I farmed 4/5 Merlinic and Ama hands. Have Lathi and Niobid strap.

Looking for advice on what gear to grab up next. I have the abj for Ama hands still, is it worth waiting until I can get +1 for them or nah?
Just looking for some solid advice moving forward from this point.

Thanks all!

Abjuration isn't hard to get.

Probably want Pemphredo Earring, Grioavolr, a second set of Merlinic for magic burst damage.

I wouldn't wait for +1 for amalric, just get another abj if you happen to get a +1. As far as other things to work on I suggest a good FC set, unlock Myrkr if you have not, 50% MBD one way or another, a good enfeeb set, for starters XD

Yeah the Abjs are not hard to get but the -1 pieces are, so I will have to go with NQ for them. What is the first set of Merlinic used for if not MB O.o? Sorry I really don't know a lot lol. I've heard of that earring, someone told me Bakarole too? and then Refoccilation stone and Mizukage - no - kubiki? This all sounds super difficult to get haha

First set is for free nuking. Second set COULD be used for MB, it depends on you and your inventory and luck from stone augments. It's possible to get all in one set tbh, but most people aren't so lucky.

Barkarole Earring is a 2~ hour questline.
Refoccilation Stone is from Warder of Hope in Escha Ruaun.
Mizukage-no-Kubikazari comes from Tenzen v2 BC.

All easy enough at this stage of the game.

Barkarole and Refoccilation Stone can be done solo, obviously.

There is a High Tier BC campaign going on, I'm sure you could get people to join for Tenzen.
