    At a quick glance, rings look so underwhelming, some might be worth for idle if paired up I guess...

    The rings are R/EX. Think how good they really are will depend on how good the set bonuses turn out.
    ...and holy #$%^& Jhakri Robe+2 = Refresh+4 lol XD I think that's the highest ingame now?

    I'm not sure there is a realistic number high enough to make some of those set bonuses good

    Some of the pieces were already good enough to be usable. The stats on those pieces (and all the rest) are now higher. Set bonuses are just gravy. XD
    Anyone done any actual number crunching or comparisons on the new stuff to see if any of the previously undesirable ones are now desirable? Looks like any stats that differ between NQ>+1 were raised further with +2.

    Hizamaru? Chirich! 1 more acc, Same STP, I dont think the evasion or counter or def is much of a selling point.
    Inyanga? Well the Refresh is a solid selling point, but I dont think its much of one, how often do WHM BRD SMN tap out their MP pool? As far as the macc: Stikini Ring
    Jhakri? Shiva's. The FC could be a selling point...depending what the FC is.
    Meghanada? Probably any other DD ring out there.
    Sulevia? If you're looking for an acc/DT hybrid piece, its there, but you could probably get better mileage elsewhere.

    Ambuscade upgrade item "Abhaljs metal". 5x for NQ>+1, 10x for +1>+2.
    200hm each, limit 5
    total hm, limit 5
    1000gal each, limit 10
    ... Ugh, this is gonna take a very very long time to upgrade everything ><;;;

    Didn't see the rings anywhere themselves, only a single voucher for total hallmarks.

    you only get the rings from the voucher which are by and large fail unless the set bonus is completely ridiculous. Meghanada set still is pretty good though now better. Also this months ambuscade looks like it might be annoying

    Would need to cross check some of the japanese text for reference. For instance is the Inyanga set Idle refresh, or does it make Refresh (spell) stronger if used for Midcast? Description hints at the second but I think it might be the first.
    Notice how all of the Ambuscade pieces did get boosted ONLY in some stats, not all. For instance I think Haste didn't get touched on any piece (was hoping for at least a +1% haste on all Jhakri pieces)
    Overall I'm happy I guess, can't wait to see what's gonna happen with the new sets as well.

    If I'm not reading wrong it's max 2x upgraded pieces each month?
    Gonna be hard to pick which to augment first I guess...

    Yeah, but SMN beat all the MP plebs to it over a year ago.

    Typo found on Inyanga Crackows +2.. It's missing in the english client, but should have MAcc+42 according to JPwiki.

    The set bonus for Sulevia +2 gives +5 Subtle Blow for each piece beyond the first, including the ring.

    That'd actually be kind of exciting if it was SB II

    Just checked, and it's normal Subtle Blow.
