    So is there any knowledge about the stat caps for melding a HQ longarm bow? I accidentally HQ'd one today and it looked like it might have been able to challenge garuda's bow but I wasn't sure. Should be better than ifrits/GC though if I understand stuff correctly. (Although dmg vs stats confuses me.)

    since you don't have tox body yet definitely get body first. after that i'd grab the eyepatch. and yes, don't go for the hands or the legs.

    So, from what I'm gathering..
    Darklight Head/Body/waist/wrist/neck/earring/ring
    Toxote hands/legs/feet

    Or are you better off running Toxote wrist/neck/earring/ring?

    Ring and Earring for DL are great upgrades once you have enough Vit from the armor upgrades to have 3400+ HP for Titan. DL feet are an upgrade, but a very small one. Not worth the phil unless you have nothing else to spend it on. If you're doing AK farming runs too, you should spend your myth on Bard armor also. Don't save them for +1ing Artemis until much later.

    Ok... im getting different info here then in my LS, lol.

    So right now I have Artemis on Bard. DL Wrist/Waist/Neck/Earring. Toxote Head, Hands, Legs and Feet.

    They told me to get full DL gear and to get my +1 before doing any Bard armor.

    But, I should upgrade to DL head, body and ring, stay with Toxote hands, legs and feet and upgrade to Bard gear before +1ing Artemis?

    Which pieces of Bard gear should I go for first?

    Full DL is an idiotic gear check put in place by shout groups. If you've already got relic, I wouldn't bother.

    Here's the sad reality for DL. You need all the pieces. And not because they are any good, but because 90% of the population refuse to believe anything else is better. So, in the end you basically gotta gimp yourself just to fit in or people with trash you.

    I had someone doing a garuda shout tell me I wasn't geared enough for it because of having toxotes gear...GARUDA. A titan DF run I had someone tell me "don't join with green gear."


    They are idiots, but you can't solo this stuff...so if you can't beat 'em, join em.

    Trying to get AF2 hands and legs first at least since the DL versions are bleh.

    Yeah, I keep hearing I needed full DL but I wasnt sure that dropping that much crit hit was worth it.

    I guess if I already got relic then who cares? Get whats actually best and not what people think is best?

    Unless you're trying to get into a pug for Coil (is this a thing on any server?), you're holding all the gear check you need.

    I got a question, why is the darklight hand worse than toxotes one? Also, if i have access to darklight hand, toxotes, hq milita mitt gaulet, which would be best?

    Determination is garbage and you don't need accuracy until the Coil (even then you shouldn't have trouble getting enough).

    DL hands and legs have both DET and ACC as their secondaries, so....crappy in general.

    Always. Only reason I even have DL feet is because I haven't seen Tox feet drop ever I actually stayed with a Relic BRD in full DL on Ifrit in a pug on parse, lost by 2-5k each time, which is pretty bad considering the Relic BRDs in my LS crush me on anything(I had GC bow for that run, and got Ifrit's on it). Since I'm also kinda stuck on BLm relic atm, I'll get BRD AF2 hat so I don't have to bother with the patch.

    Yea, this game current situation is you don't have DL gear = you are the one failed the fight.

    Hell... I was even using HQ Longarm, level 36+ accessories and set of Artifact while winning Garuda HM.

    People didn't know that when to use LB on this fight, Off Tank keeps red linked with the bunch of people fighting Green Linked to wipe , and facing to DPS and healers... Of course will then quoted because our gears sux to wipe.

    Garuda fight isn't hard, as long as people know what job there are doing accordingly... Also, where to go when powerful attack inc...

    On Titan, I believed Your HP is one of the factor to survive, but good healers and tank are important too.

    Many dungeons and Primal fights are really base on Tank knowing to position and healer are healing fast enough with MP managing.
    A tank making Garuda facing you, a tank making AK final boss to take up whole area with Tail Move... It's end of story, get yourself level PLD or WAR... lol

    Well I feel better now then. Just got DL body and will get relic hat some time next week.

    Should I just get all relic gear before +1ing relic bow?

    I would get relic+1 beyond any others, if your relic is ready.

    You would spend 900 mythology on 1 dam 4 dex 5 vit instead of spending a little less on relic hand/ring which would give 13 Dex 9 vit 26 crit over Toxotes hands/ring?
