    LoL best of luck getting that equipment.

    The rings you listed don't exist yet.

    Took a BLM in my LS 40 synths to get his Genie Weskit. And the AF2 hat is one of the most rare pieces in the game.

    Hey that brings up a quick question I had about staves, So.. for the HNM scene, Using the Aquillo's staff is better then using the proper HQ staff for your spell?

    IE: Casting Thunder 4 with Aquillo's instead of Jupitar staff?

    If youre having that bad of troubles with resists, on mobs that dont have any distinct weakness (Ie Dynamis Xarcabard NMs) youre better off nuking with Ice Spells for the ele skill and staff bonus. If youre having trouble landing thunder spells on mobs with ice resistance just suck it up and stock up on ele skill gear. Dont mix and match staves unless your gimp and dont have the staves.

    The theory is that the proper elemental staff raises your magical accuracy and magical potency by 10%, 15% if you use a HQ staff. If this is true, it is like adding 10% to your elemental magic skill, which is a fair bit nicer than the 10 skill that you get from the Ice or Aquillo's staff.

    But really, it is kind of hard to prove these things as more than anecdotal. (With that said, I match up my staff with the nuke I am using because it seems to be true.)

    For those of you who think a setup like this would be all but impossible. I live by one rule... Nothing is impossible. Improbable perhaps, but not impossible. With enough time and dedication to the task, in time I shall possess all that I need. :D

    2nd: In terms of matching elemental staffs, the potency has been well proven. Just from personal experience though, I really haven't noticed much of a change in accuracy with the exception of the Ice/Aquillo's Staff (which I'll attribute to the +Elemental Magic).

    You definitely dont need all of that though to get into HNM. In fact, the massive gil drops from HNM will help you obtain a good portion of that. I would strongly suggest starting out simple(errant gear for INT+, NQ elemental staves, best int+ stuff you can get) and the working to get your best possible, dream equipment

    Getting a little bit off topic here about BLM and moving onto RDM question...

    I'm contemplating buying Wise Braconi for that few bits of Magical accuracy to help with Enfeebling resist, but I'm thinking maybe perhaps Mahatma Slops are better.

    Elemental Seal reads in description that it increases the magical accuracy of your next spell, which means RDM JSE has the same purpose as ES.

    What are your thoughts, INT from Slops or M.Accu from Braconi?

    what you wanna do is get equipment that's identical to mine

    Yes, as we all know Hellboy is the black mage version of pimp. All he needs is the green suit the guy in Joft's sig is wearing and he'd be set.

    the rings don't exist so it's impossible.

    the hat is highly improbable.

    the body piece though improbable is also RMTable.

    besides that, everything else is well within the realm of reason.

    I'm thinking the Aquilo's, etc... rings exist but they are like an HQ3 or some stupid shit... Like so far beyond the realm of reality it's a joke. I know people have HQ'd the rings with no result, but why the hell not put them in the game at all?

    However, Vin Diesel would craft them with a Yagudo Feather and Ash Staff...bitches

    Best solution:

    Set of EleSkill gear
    Set of EnfeebleSkill gear
    Set of DarkSkill gear
    Set of MAtk+INT gear

    Wow. Now you have gear for any kind of situation and you can shove it all in macros. You win.

    They are in the game data but they aren't possible to make yet.
