Gleti's has lower MEva and no MDT. You definitely want that for Lilith.

Edit: If you can hit MDT -21% with accessories (Staunch Tathlum, Defending Ring, Moonlight Ring, augmented Odnowa Earring +1, etc.) in addition to Shell V's MDT -29%, you could take advantage of the higher MDB on Gleti's. That would be sacrificing the MEva you'd get from Malignance or Nyame in those slots though.

There is stark contrast in the mdb from gleti vs mdb from malignance.

That being said yeah double checking gleti is only -physical with little to no int.

I think if there wasn't as many status effects in the fight it would be doable.

But malignance is the best for getting malignance.

Magic evasion all the way

Edit: that's a fantastic comparison table.

Have you successfully landed defense down on Arebati? I was not able to land it on Ranger using bolts even back on v15 after like 25+ shots in full malignancy/macc. So I’m curious if you could do it from WS

Yes

Edit:
Code
	sets.precast.WS['Armor Break'] = { ammo="Yamarang",
    head="Carmine Mask +1",
    body="Agwu's Robe",
    hands="Agwu's Gages",
    legs="Agwu's Slops",
    feet="Agwu's Pigaches",
    neck="Erra Pendant",
    waist="Acuity Belt +1",
    ear1="Digni. Earring",
    ear2="Crepuscular Earring",
    ring1={name="Stikini Ring +1",bag="Wardrobe 4"},
    right_ring="Metamor. Ring +1",
   back={ name="Ogma's cape", augments={'HP+60','Mag. Acc+20 /Mag. Dmg.+20','Mag. Acc.+10','"Fast Cast"+10','Phys. dmg. taken-10%',}},}

I would like to see proof via a chat log message indicating the defense down has worn off. Simply using armor break on Arrebati is one thing, but getting the additional effect to proc is another. And just posting your gear set isn't actually proof the defense down stuck. Mind you I'm not saying that it isn't possible. I'm just skeptical is all. The tier 3's have ridiculously high elemental resistances and ice >> wind so I question how reliable you can land defense down on him even if it can be done.

If he say he’s landed it then I’m sure he has. Can just look in the logger for it, should be easy to confirm.

I’ve just known I tried for a couple dozen shots worth and was never able to get oxidant bolts to land on him on V15 as RNG, and that shows up directly in the log. So maybe magic magic accuracy from WS is significantly higher, or perhaps threnody was on? I’ve never landed it on Arebati nor Ngai.

Yeah, unless a mob is outright immune to an effect you should be able to land it. It has to be really hard though. I've never noticed the plague effect from shijin spiral wear off on Ngai, and I've looked for it in the log every time. Rune fencer has slightly higher magic accuracy in agwu's then monk does in mpaca though, and I didn't ever wear magic accuracy accessories when I attempted it. I'd be curious if he landed a full duration proc or a partial duration. I've had my rune fencers open with armor break on arrebati before too, and they said the effect didn't stick for them. So I'm curious here because nobody has ever landed it before in my parties is all. This is the first time I've ever heard of someone sticking defense down on arrebati.

I suppose you could go all out and use macc food like oden or stewpot and ask the Bard to use a SV Tro wind Threnody II. Prebuff with focus. He posted the set on Rune Fencer, so he probably did 3x Flabra Rayke to further lower the resistance. If he did all of those things, I’m not surprised if he could land it.

Sorry I should have been clear I do normally do this on RUN.

Edit: But I think I have landed it on SAM without it before.Ageha does get a MACC buff with TP

I don't have any screenshots off hand to show sorry.

Exactly. If you debuff it to the ground including rayke, then you probably have a fair chance to do it. It's not as simple as posting equip and saying you can tho...

Been looking at clearing some confusion on the wiki empyrean pages, I just wanted to confirm, the sneak attack +25 that changes the dex modifier to 1.25 only works if the empy hands are equipped during the SA augmented weaponskill and not on ja activation, right? (and it's generally not worth bothering using them for that reason?)

Thanks, also should've asked but now realized, pillager's armlets I reckon is the same effect but for agi and trick attack right? I edited the bgwiki pages but now second guessing myself, if it is not the same I'll correct it <.<

BG Wiki also shows the BIS evisceration build uses tp earring, which is counter-intuitive to the Tauret which would want less tp. If anyone can edit this or explain why that would still be useful, that would be awesome. :D

Do you mean moonshade earring?

Also Tauret's Crit rate bonus based on TP is not active during WSs

Working on my Herculean set for AE. What stones are most efficient for getting high magic attack bonus & WSD? Obviously Fern is better for WSD, but Pellucid is going to make MAB easier and is much, much cheaper.

Pretty much this. Not to mention the Evasion and DT to go along with it.
