I think if you needed more ACC, I’d go with Emicho body and hands +1 path B. You get a crapton of ACC plus the set bonus DA +4% from both pieces (ACC being your focus).

Set bonus of AF+3 and regal ring will outweigh Emicho body/hands

4/5 AF+3, emicho feet +1 and regal ring will give
313 acc and 150 dex = 425.5 acc

2/5 AF +3 and 3/5 emicho +1 with regal ring will give
293 acc + 166 dex = 417.5 acc

Thanks Taco for the clarification. With that being said, I think the goal is to keep up enough ACC without sacrificing too multi-attack, STP etc.

I think a lot already use emicho hands +1 in their builds so adding the body won't be too much of hit from current TP builds. But if you want full on ACC, by all means go for it.

My two cents.

EDIT: Sorry still half asleep so I had edit what I said.

There is only an 8 acc difference between the two options.


There is a lot of store tp and multi attack options and paths you can go that will only cause your acc to fluctuate about 30 acc which isn't enough to break your acc

The point of Emicho is body + hands make a great combo, 9 DA 7 Store TP and a crap ton of accuracy. Why on earth would we be bringing in any other pieces, the rest of the set sucks.

Saevel, I think you missed the point of the conversation. That or you flat out ignored the point in which it was stated there was only an 8 point difference in accuracy.

Azagarth is always the man to trigger even more outside the box thinking and I now came out with this very niche set:

ItemSet 363725

Haste: 28% (Still on that hated Haste 10% back with -5 DT instead of occ. resist status ailments.)

Subtle Blow: 4 Pieces Sulevia's = 15 + Dignitary's = 20 Total SB.

Subtle Blow II: Remains 15, total 35, with Auspice should still be able to cap. (We only lost 5 SB from the full SB set I posted earlier.)

Damage Taken -: 43/50.

I can foresee this Hybrid being alot more useful for solo/duo content like let's say HTBF or Unity NM.

A good hybrid that will allow you to still hit with enough DPS required for these mobs, not allow it to spam TP moves as much, and can take hits with.

I suppose Dagon now has another use in a possible new hybrid set outside of the BiS one's we've had to allow cap DT on.

*EDIT*

While I understand it's becoming a little too much, the reality lies on people eventually going after or even bidding 120M+ on a body that doesn't truly have much use / explored upon.

If we start posting Niche's now, people who have had their Dagon's on MH Mannequin's may in fact have more use to it now than a lockstyle / Mannequin piece.

Few days late, but I don't think the occ. resist status alignments is all that favorable since it's reduced by half against nms. If anything meva would be more favorable.

Thanks for the responses guys. My thought process was to use AF+3 where possible to get max acc from set bonus but chose the Emicho Body +1 for the DA and its just slightly less acc. The AF feet have no acc so the emicho feet +1 with that set bonus giving another 4% DA. I very much considered the Emicho hands +1 as well but thought that it will really depend where I end up acc wise.

So I do not have anguta on my new char, I could use some help from some drks out there to test in real situations. I have updated the main post with augs, they are max stp. I would gladly recieve advice too for this set as there are many options.

ItemSet 350017

I am trying to see how this fairs against the typical calad setup dps wise. Its a ligit 3 hit build with your avg cor (dont even need perfect rolls, a crooked 7 is enough I believe, so basically always have this).

It still retains a very high multi hit rate, enough that basically half the time you ws at a 2 hit rate. You also still use the strongest WS we have on scythe and dont have to rely on AM3 like a lib would. You could also exploit it a lot more with having a Fighters roll allowing you to have a near 80% DA rate, which is 4/5 time you ws, your next hit will be full tp.

I Cant imagine this with warcry for a zerg, it would literally be back to back CR at 2500+ tp... I just cant see anything drk has access to conceptually beating that.

be respectful with comments or debate.

depending on how much multi attack and/or acc you want for that set you could swap out the legs for oddysean cuisses with some good stp augs and that could allow you to change out acro and/or even ginsen/chirich rings. Can give you options to use hetairoi | petrov ring

perfect aug would be 15 vit, 4 wsd, and the as much acc/attack as possible. This is using Taupe. If you go the fern route max is 10 vit, 5 wsd. The latter is more multifunctional as it generally is pretty top for other ws too just due to high wsd. Seeing tha taupe is like 10% the cost of fern atm, I think its clear which way to go haha.

I just got this on Ody Helm for Torc: VIT 15 WSdmg 4 .. but only 9 acc 9 atk. I don't want to sacrifice wsdmg elsewhere, but am still at a reasonable 1175 accuracy with (Rag) no buffs. Should be enough for most things.

But in case I need it, I got my old helm with less wsdmg/more acc (39). You gotta' work with what you get, and you can't plan Oseem augments lol :)

body={ name="Emicho Haubert +1", augments={'HP+65','DEX+12','Accuracy+20',}},
hands={ name="Emi. Gauntlets +1", augments={'HP+65','DEX+12','Accuracy+20',}},
legs={ name="Odyssean Cuisses", augments={'Accuracy+15 Attack+15','"Store TP"+7','STR+2','Accuracy+5',}},
feet="Flam. Gambieras +2",
neck="Ainia Collar",
waist="Ioskeha Belt +1",
left_ear="Cessance Earring",
right_ear="Brutal Earring",
left_ring="Hetairoi Ring",
right_ring="Niqmaddu Ring",
back={ name="Ankou's Mantle", augments={'DEX+20','Accuracy+20 Attack+20','Accuracy+10','"Dbl.Atk."+10','Damage taken-5%',}},

when i get the neck +2 will swap Hetairoi to stp ring, 1187 acc 61 stp

Looks solid to me.

With high buffs any 5-6 hit works great.

I save emicho for my high acc sets but the difference is small.

Is Steel Cyclone DMG worth it compared to GS / Scythe options? Just curious.

I don't know the answer to your first question because I don't use Apoc.

Here is mine if you want to try it. Most people using Selindrile's now but this one works just fine and has some nice gadgets to it. Also very simple.

what are people wearing for a hybrid set if you're going to be "tanking"? I only have apoc but I still feel a little vulnerable with my capped pdt set having about 2200hp

something like this?
