This Set is +63 tick.
ItemSet 369805


This would be the highest tick with an extra +9 Regen(Not sure if any of the other equip's % boosts that),
but sacrificing duration.
ItemSet 374444
edit, apperantly it's not a +3 regen boost per piece, but 3% of base regen potency.

Note that you never want to use the latter set, as the telchine augments aren't flat potency but a percentage of the base amount, so you're using 3 slots to add a meager 3 hp/tick (or maybe 4), which is really, really minor. Af legs/empy hands add 44 base duration which gets multiplied by all duration multipliers, so it's a much better use of your MP and time, you end up with almost 2minute longer Regen.

Mimir shouldn't do much; the enhancing skill part of barspells caps at only 500 skill.

There's also the job point category for Barspell potency, which accounts for another +40.

Then it seems odd that you'd only be hitting 196.

Basic Barspell potency isn't complicated. As mentioned, you need 500 skill to hit 150 base. WHM then has another +10 from Cat1 merits and +40 available from Job Points. Then Relic pants, which at +3 offer +36 for that 236 total.

Are your pants maybe not equipping, or you're testing against something that has -element in your idle set?

WHM also gets bonuses to MDB for them, from those merits, Empyrean body under Solace, and Beneficus.

You have the wrong pants. Theophany is artifact, not relic.

To be clear on the subjob selection front, /SCH also gets Sleep and Dispel, but only via Addendum: Black, which requires an Arts change. Not as convenient as having them always available with /RDM, but /SCH adds the possibility of an AoE Sleep with Manifestation (with triple the recast as a subjob penalty), and just the options makes /RDM even less useful. I honestly can't remember the last time I went WHM/RDM.

Twilight cape goes in the back slot, Hachirin-no-obi goes in the waist slot, so you can have both. Obi forces the Chatoyant bonus to happen 100% of the time so it's kind of a big deal.

That said, Twilight Cape loses to Alaunus cape for single cures casted with Afflatus Solace active. With weather up and Afflatus Solace down (Misery, or no Afflatus due to dispels), Twilight is still good.

Twilight always good for weather curagas, since those don't benefit from the Solace bonus on Alaunus cape.

If you don't have weather then you can have whatever cape, both mnd and skill don't matter much for whm cures at this point.

Does WHM get access to any form of 18% movement speed outside of the Adoulin ring, or are we still stuck with 12%?

They need to release iLevels of those boots already. Every job should have +18% ilevel options by now. I think Pup, Dnc, and Mnk don’t have an ilevel +18% movement speed item either yet.

I would personally 100% go for for the adoulin ring if the jobs I spend most of my time on didn't have an 18% option.

wouldnt stinkini +1 be better than metamorph for black halo and realmrazer?

With the new augments from Unity, the Metamorph +1 ring at rank 15 is +16 mnd(6 native,10 augmented), which is the stat i'm assuming they're going for.
