I preferred using Decimating bullets on anything meaningful if divine were out of stock. Saved Eminent for CP parties where ranged attack/acc were less of a concern.

Decimating bullets can be purchased at the curio moogle. 18 less DMG than Eminent, but 10 racc and 5 ratk. Not sure how the math works out.

Let me clarify, I was using Decimating on anything where I was ranged attacking for TP and/or using Last Stand. For Leaden Spam or melee, I just used Eminent.

Glancing at spread sheet, I get A+ambu dagger slightly higher then B+ambu dagger for WF+melee but margin is within like 20dps on spreadsheet. A is going to be more consistent on xhit shooting depending on cor roll and pull ahead on melee if getting attack buffs. B generates a bunch of TP overflow thats useless for WF.

Question: How acc low are you guys willing to go in savageblade sets? Pulled 13str/7%wsdmg legs from dm augs, but savage set already feels pretty sketch with +2 neck and af3 body.

Short answer: as low as I can.

Just keep a lowest acc set for both melee and WS, and use them when you can.

My lowest acc TP set has around 980 acc. 2nd lowest is about 1020-1030, 3rd lowest is about 1080-1100, then 2 more tier until 1280ish.

I find every opportunity to lower my melee acc as much as possible. In ambu I like to make my brd SV whenever it's up, then WC to reset it whenever it's up. I use RDM as main healer whenever I can so I can push acc lower for more dps. I only ever swap to higher acc sets when SV/distract 3 aren't available.

If extra buff isn't available I generally keep it at 1050-1100ish in ambu.

Is it in lowest acc set or max? In dyna wave 3(where melee wf is used) I had to TP in very high acc sets with low MA. Not sure if the result applies.

was just a quick look with w/e ideal tp set is and normal WF gear. If you have a specific tp set you want me to check, I can take a look later.

Bit off topic but does anyone know if the sword in the top picture in the guide that the Elvaan is holding is actually in the game?

I think a lot of people do not realize how easily obtainable -DT is for COR now more than ever. At least thats how I feel about it.

How are you getting as low on Acc as 980 with all the Acc+ on stuff like Naegling, Tauret or Rostam lately? Are you TPing in QA+3 Herc pieces that have zero Acc + Dedition Earring?

QA+3/stp augmented herc hand with 0 acc, QA+3 herc feet, thaumas coat, dedition earring. thats what I have for the lowest. This set has around 100 more dps than 1085-1100 acc set with hq adhemar body and hands.

with naegling I think my lowest can go a bit above 1000 now.

Thaumas Coat is pretty nice, but I can't think of a lot of content where I would risk using it due to the lack of defensive bonuses. I assume when you do wear it, you have DW+10 on your cape?

1)That is correct. DW+10 on back with thaumas coat.

2) The lack of acc on thaumas coat bothers me more than the lack of defensive bonus lol. I use the coat on teles and dyna wave 3 fetters+aurix since Im over capping acc on them, so far I havent die because of it.

I have capped mdt full time just from MH rostam, 2 rolls, mdt +10% TP back and whm shell 5. For physical dmg I recast utsu 1 between pulls so for the most part its relatively safe IMO. other DD with berserk/last resort up are far more likely to die.

I cant cap acc in thaumas coat most of the time anyways, so the situation that I really TP in it is quite rare. But its nice to have a max dps set ready when you can afford to push dps a bit higher.

I didn't mean with regard to dying, rather the lack of MEVA makes you unlikely to resist any status effects even with Barspells up. Also, isn't there an ilevel penalty attached to using it? Although perhaps not when using 119 offhand and ranged.

I'm not aware of any ilv penalty negatively impact your dps. Am I missing anything?

As far as status effect goes, just don't use it if mob has any that affects dps, or use react with resist set to counter it. It's not a big deal: FFXI is meant to be played swapping gears and no set should be full timed ever.

But I'm pretty sure FFXI wasn't meant to be played with bots.

As for the ilevel thing: using non-ilevel gear could drop you to ilevel 117, which might affect level correction, but not sure if it's ever been tested.

Missing the point, but whatever.

(By swapping gears, I meant swap it in any way you want, not necessarily botting. Idk why you put 2 of my different sentence in the same one in the same quote and change the meaning of my post.)

Lv correction doesnt apply to all zones, and you TP in it not WS in it lol.

I'd hardly call gearswap luas 'not a bot', they can do the exact same thing bots do.

(Seriously, if you're automating something that should demand reaction time, you're cheating. I'm not going to pretend I'm above cheating, but you can't honestly believe it's not a huge unfair advantage.)
