For me my dream idle set for avatar's out on my SMN mule is this:
ItemSet 394723
pet: MDT -10% and regen+10 on cape

With the intention to have both master and avatar as safe as possible inside aoe range + get decent Avatar's favor and refresh. For me though, problem is that this mule is not getting anything higher than R20 Nyame anytime soon.
If Mboze is more practical for you to clear than Bumba, consider looking at Bunzi pants instead. That's what I use for Pet:DT, they're really nice at R25+. 9% for the master and at R30 they have 5% for the pet.

I have seen Bubzi, but I'm limited to boxing atm, so I think the highest I will ever make is V20 at some point and then bumba is probably easier to execute and gives -5% for pet at R25, so I think that's my best option.

Just wanted to clarify something.
This set is listed as elite in the guide
ItemSet 366325
but it doesn't actually require BP augment on cape or Sancus Sachet +1 right? Epitaph is enough with -5 BPII, because gifts have -10 BPIII and hands and legs have -15 BPI, so it's a total of -30, which is a cap. Right?

Looking at the merit/magic blood pact sets, overall would be higher damage I imagine but hardly any pieces have much pet macc... on higher level content using SMN... specific example Ongo v25 1st KI... would Beckoners not be a better option? BP damage on most of the pieces is pretty decent but also has really high MACC... sure its lacking MAB compared to other options listed... but macc I imagine would be an issue no?

I am gearing up a summoner for random stuff like that and will probably only use it in higher level content like ody v25 stuff so trying to figure out my priorities is all.

Thanks in advance for any pointers/explanations!

Avatars have surprisingly high magic accuracy. I think it's because of their strong elemental affinity, as you're always using BPs that match the avatar's element such as thunder with Ramuh, ice with Shiva, etc. Fenrir's Impact lands consistently on mobs that players struggle to land it on (unfortunately the debuff is less powerful). Of course I encourage you to experiment if you think you're getting resisted.

In terms of Ongo V25, you'll most likely be using Night Terror which literally has 100% magic accuracy. It cannot be resisted. Even when I tried Geocrush non-bursted it would hit for almost as much as Night Terror, suggesting it's not really getting resisted much either, if at all.

If you do feel you need more magic acc, I'd suggest switching up food before gear. Rolanberry Daifuku & Marine Stewpot are good and only cost you 14 Pet:MAB compared to the usual Grape. Though, I think you'll find it unnecessary.

Awesome! thank you very much for the information and advice. I have a pretty decent pup and bst, might dive deep into smn as well. I seem to enjoy pet jobs, for now though just trying to get functional for clearing some content. Thanks again!
