I thought it worthwhile to open a thread on the impact this update has on Bst.

I'm still going thru notes, etc, but I see the Shepherd's chain has finally been superceded by this very nice piece:

I was too hasty, thats master -dt, not pet. Still 2 fantastic hybrid neck pieces for pet jobs. SE is bringing out the carrot for melee'ing along w/ pet, not just the stick.

Adad Amulet Adad Amulet icon.png 99 0 0 Neck DEF:8 HP+25 Damage taken -4% Pet: Magic Accuracy+20 "Magic Atk. Bonus"+10 BST / DRG / SMN / PUP

I'll be adding more, but I welcome the discussion.
another fantastic pet neck piece:

Shulmanu Collar Shulmanu Collar icon.png 99 0 0 Neck DEF:6 Accuracy+20 Attack+20 "Double Attack"+3% Pet: Accuracy+20 Attack+20 "Double Attack"+5% BST / DRG / SMN / PUP


SAY HELLO TO THIS BEAUTIFUL EARRING
Enmerkar Earring Enmerkar Earring icon.png 99 0 0 Earrings Pet: Accuracy+15 Magic Accuracy+15 "Store TP"+8 Damage taken -3% BST / DRG / SMN / PUP

Isn't that DT for the master rather than pet?

There is Totemic +2 and +3 sets now. I'm going to pay attention to the +3

Totemic Helm +3 Totemic Helm +3 icon.png 99 119 0 Head DEF:122 HP+64 MP+23 STR+33 DEX+34 VIT+30 AGI+34 INT+30 MND+30 CHR+34 Accuracy+47 Evasion+64 Magic Evasion+73 "Magic Def. Bonus"+3 Haste+8% "Charm"+35 "Tame" success rate +31 Pet: Accuracy+40 BST

Great Acc, but not a big upgrade from Tali'ah +1. It lacks the pet Macc. I haven't compared all these stats for master yet though.

Totemic Gloves +3 Totemic Gloves +3 icon.png 99 119 0 Hands DEF:110 HP+47 STR+21 DEX+45 VIT+42 AGI+15 INT+22 MND+40 CHR+30 Accuracy+48 Evasion+44 Magic Evasion+57 "Magic Def. Bonus"+3 Parrying skill +19 Haste+5% Weapon skill damage +10% Pet: Haste+5% BST

I'm not sure what to think of this one yet... big Ws damange seems nice, but I have to run the numbers on how this would compare to Leyline gloves and Argosy... I doubt it will compete.


Totemic Jackcoat +3 Tot. Jackcoat +3 icon.png 99 119 0 Body DEF:152 HP+98 MP+44 STR+39 DEX+39 VIT+34 AGI+38 INT+33 MND+33 CHR+38 Accuracy+50 Evasion+69 Magic Evasion+84 "Magic Def. Bonus"+7 Haste+4% "Reward"+26 Augments "Reward" III Pet: Damage taken -10%

New Best in slot, upping our pet -dt by a significant margin.

Totemic Trousers +3 Tot. Trousers +3 icon.png 99 119 0 Legs DEF:134 HP+80 STR+39 VIT+26 AGI+30 INT+40 MND+27 CHR+21 Accuracy+49 Evasion+58 Magic Evasion+89 "Magic Def. Bonus"+6 Haste+6% "Reward" recast time -19 "Killer" effects +2 Pet: Attack+40 BST

best Ready Attack Legs AND Killer effects (which I think will be coming back into play) They want BST to be close and engaged in the fight. They just upgraded artifact, we can expect to see Relic and Empyrean Sets upgrade as well.. Hello Nukumi +3 body with stats to make killer effects worthwhile for melee/ws.


Totemic Gaiters +3 Tot. Gaiters +3 icon.png 99 119 0 Feet DEF:92 HP+29 STR+22 DEX+34 VIT+22 AGI+47 MND+22 CHR+40 Accuracy+46 Evasion+92 Magic Evasion+89 "Magic Def. Bonus"+6 Haste+4% "Reward"+36 Pet: Accuracy+30 Attack+30 BST

Tali'ah +1 is a better Pet acc feet, but having this much Acc and Atk for pet together is quite nice. Probably won't need the Tali+1 much if you get these. Especially since this is a reward piece that every bst should be using anyway.

I almost don't know what to think... Its like they are giving us the incentive to fight 1-handed...

Udug Jacket Udug Jacket icon.png 99 119 0 Body DEF:148 HP+114 MP+69 STR+30 DEX+30 VIT+30 AGI+30 INT+30 MND+30 CHR+30 Accuracy+45 Evasion+50 Magic Evasion+86 "Magic Def. Bonus"+5 Haste+4% "Resist Sleep"+90 Damage taken -10% Pet: Magic Accuracy+45 "Magic Atk. Bonus"+45

Wow.. and its for 3 pet jobs... Huge Macc and Mab on same piece; Huge DT AND resist sleep... this is designed to back line pet nuke... serioiusly.

Yay, I won't be trying for Emicho body +1.. I wonder how much this costs by comparison.

Omen KI = 0gil, so the cost by comparison would be 0:cursed-1 + abj cost..
Even if it takes a while to see the drop, that's like 1mil less per attempt, no? ;)

Can anyone confirm if Reward is improved by the Totemic +3 set beyond NQ 119 armor?

time is money, if it takes more time to farm this body drop than it does to farm gil to buy emicho +1 then its more expensive.

Emicho +1 body is ~350m?

I mean I completely agree, just in this specific example it's hard to imagine the number of runs you'd need to do @1 hour per day w/o getting the body to add up to 350m, even if you have a very good source of gil.
