First and foremost allow me to apologize as I know if I were to sort through the deepest recesses of the forums I could probably gather this information. That being said, this post may serve to help many as I doubt I will be alone in my curiosity regarding this topic.

At first I wasn't really interested in a SIRD (Spell Interruption Rate Down) set, because I already have a crap-ton of PLD gear. I have already tanked and beaten everything a PLD can tank (Tumult Curator being the only thing in the game I haven't killed). Hell, I haven't even looked into my PLD lua in a while because it just hasn't been necessary to playing the job. Basically lazy. Now that I'm back from a small hiatus and I'm playing on PLD again, I noticed that I have a use for a SIRD set and want to implement it. For example, we did a run where the PLD was zombie'ing, but RR was down for the rest of the party and the tank (not me) didn't have a SIRD set.. so they couldn't raise the whm.

So here are the questions:
1. Can someone please present the best SIRD set available (Remember I apologized beforehand)?

2. I notice from my initial information gathering that people seem to be making the SIRD set on top of Midcast.. shouldn't it be on the precast? Or does it have to be part of both to completely mitigate interrupts?

3. Using a basic motes style lua, how do I implement a toggle that will switch to SIRD sets? I am fairly decent with lua, but would like to make sure I'm doing this right. It's not binding the toggle, it's properly naming precast and midcast sets with the binded toggle to work properly. Please include all pertinent info and I can plug it in where it belongs. If necessary, I can link my current working lua to this topic - just let me know.

Thanks in advance!

2: The SIRD check occurs when the mob hits you. And precast gear is only equipped for the veeery start of the cast. With the way gearswap handles precast and midcast it's effectively impossible to get hit in precast gear.

So, SIRD gear needs to be equipped in midcast. Which means that you have to make some sacrifices to fit said gear it. Depending on what you're casting this could cost you potency, or recast reduction or enmity, etc. You have to decide what matters more. getting the cast off successfully, or having full potency.

ItemSet 360350
96% gear + 10% in merits = 106%

Fill in Enmity/HP/Enhancing in the other slots based on what you want to cast

Yeah but then your going to smoke your HP down to 2700, I use those pieces regal/back because it keeps my HP above 3000. Odyssean gear is great if properly augmented but I use it sparingly based on how terrible the HP is

Still nice to have options, I totally appreciate all of your guy's advice here. The Toralin set is optimal, but the suggestions are good for stuff I can pull together really fast.

If only some genius would tell me how to properly set it so I can toggle SIRD off and on in GS.

Assuming that I set modes SIRD on and off.. make a toggle bind.. but how do I make the sets work?

Like sets.midcast.Raise
and
sets.midcast.sird.Raise

or would you do sets.midcast.sird = sets.midcast(combine .. and just plugin the SIRD pieces to ALL midcast?

Above being an example. I'm not at home to test it out, have a half-written lua waiting for me as it is.

Could do what mages do with differing levels of magic accuracy. Set up a keybind to toggle the tiers, one tier being

sets.midcast.spellname

And another being

sets.midcast.interrupt.spellname

The "interrupt" I'd just a suggestion. You could call it sets.midcast.silly.spellname if you really wanted to. When I get home I'll pull the commands you'll need to add and where to create this tier system, unless a more versed person posts first ;)

A valid concern. And something I might consider, if I had regal gauntlets. -.-;

For me, maintaining high HP is something I toggle, as I don't see 3k+ HP as needed for all content. Much Like SIRD.

Come to think of it, I don't think I've addressed how those two toggles interact. I imagine it would knock my HP down fairly significantly. My typical goal for SIRD is to hit cap using as few slots as possible to reduce how badly SIRD gimps spell potency. Adjusting for high HP is going to be... annoying.

My current turtle set has like 2800 HPs and I have never had a problem. I'm going to up that number if I can organically, but being in that ballpark is actually kind of beneficial because the most I lose switching to any set is like 5-10 hps. I do have some low hp sets, like CDC midcast, but I just don't use CDC when I tank (Savage Blade is better anyway at a loss of 10 hps)

Sup sup. I was wondering how to write a mote lua that would have SIRD for the full cast. I appreciate the theory that its impossible to get hit in precast, but when you're in Dynamis D or Omen and holding 5+ monsters, if SIRD isnt on the whole time, you get interrupted most of the time. I've tried to code it that precast and mid cast are the same set but this seems to break the lua entirely forcing the SIRD set to be always equipped.any help with would be appreciated. Also swap out the Ambuscade cape for the halzqsomething earring and use Moonbeam Cape, less HP fluctuations.

My guess is that your precast isn't equipping properly OR you don't have a high enough fast cast set (cap 80%).

You can check this by turning on showswaps (//gs showswaps).

If it is swapping in your precast gear, check to make sure you have a high enough fast cast set.

Otherwise, if you're still having problems and want both precast and midcast the same, just set your SIRD set to be both the precast and midcast for the spell you're using.

Code
sets.SIRD = {your gear here}
sets.precast.Phalanx = sets.SIRD
sets.midcast.Phalanx = sets.SIRD

Yeah I will hold 40+ mobs when cleaving on Paladin and my spells never get interrupted. It sounds like your lua/gearswap is just malfunctioning.

You do know you need 103% SIRD total to cap right (technically 103% but due to rounding its often 103%, kinda like how you generally need 26% gear haste)

Try using set_combine() to make your midcast the same as precast:

sets.midcast.SIRD = set_combine(sets.precast.SIRD, {})
