    Prudence or Perdu wand? To that point, Acc rings or STR rings for Hexa? Any tips in general on WHM melee would be appriciated (have read the Izzy thread, just looking for anything else that people might wanna mention)

    Acceptable, non-Barone bodies for jump for drg? Presently using Barone, but considering selling it to help fund upgrades on other jobs if other alternatives don't cost too much (or I already have them from other jobs). Askar and Zahak's are none-starters atm, btw.

    Really barone is only needed if you trying to maintain 6-hit but w/o askar I am guessing you don't have that. Other bodys I'd rank[assuming acc not issue]:
    Zahak = Ares[depends on mob] > ACP body[either acc/stp or acc/something] > Heca > Askar > AF +1 >= AJ. Homam, and SH are good if you're uncapped acc obivously and heca much better too if acc issue; also aurum is good but bad since -vit hurts dmg while str/dex does help.

    For Hume BLM75, I know Sturm's Report is better for Dark Magic, but is it better than P. Tathlum for enfeebles?

    You need to be more specific. Perdu/Prudence is the best non-relic/KC combination for /NIN, but if you're asking about single-wielding then I'd be inclined to say Perdu. Accuracy > all for Hexa unless you're fighting weak shit, same as all multi-hits.

    Fair enough, atm I'm going Morg/Prudence as I'm saving up for Perdu. Dual wield focus though, and yeah, hexa acc gooo~

    That depends? Are you going to be gearing towards using Group 2 bloodpacts like Grandfall etc? If not then max physical acc/attack.

    I was going to do Leviathan and Shiva's Cat2 merits fully, for situations where I can't use Predator Claws or Spinning Dive, so both I guess? I have BLM, so SMN is only going to be for wyrms Cerb/Khim where BLM doesn't shine as much, but I want to do it well.

    I have 5/5 Physical Accuracy and Attack and 5/5 Thunderstorm and Heavenly Strike. I honestly don't use Summoner that much but I don't really care for the magical blood pacts (and only merited them because I had nothing left)..maybe someone who actually uses the job consistently could give a better opinion, but anywhere I'd use Summoner I'd rather use Physical Bloodpacts myself.

    I'd have to agree, I don't really like the magical BP's. I only use SMN at khim and on some ZNM's and things where I use Physical BP's. But from my experience the group 2 pacts are ones that you need to go pretty in depth for gear wise (acp body with avatar mab etc etc) to really make them worthwhile.

    For spells that I must absolutely land (e.g. sleep, bind) yes I'd use Sturm's Report over INT+2.

    If you're not on birds and aren't synced to under 50, I don't see any reason why you wouldn't

    Is skadi legs better for a thf to tp in then Homam legs considering this build:

    no dagger merits. feint 5/5

    X's/Blau/Fire bomblet
    Turban/peacock/suppa/brutal
    rappere-or-homam/dusk+1/sniper+1x2
    cuchulain/velocious/????/homam

    speaking strictly at birds and i eat mithkabobs, i'm thinking that the extra accuracy would be useful more then 1% haste but then i feel silly using my dusk+1 over homam hands i guess. Help me out, BG, with some math?

    Thanks Siniroth.

    Second question, to settle a debate, should a SAM wear a swift belt?

    Considering homam legs have +3 acc, and skadi has +4, I'd go with Homam legs.

    1% Haste > 1 acc, Store TP +7, +5 attack in my book.

    I don't know about THF myself, but I remember that whenever this question comes up, it's Skadi legs that prevails.
