Hello blues of Vanadiel, I'm starting to take a real interested in the job, and I am wondering if Malignance set is considered best TP set with AM3 Tizona? Is there a link with up to date gearsets somewhere ? Thanks guys !

I believe it was already discussed afew pages back (or was it in the Lilith forum?..)

Anyway, Malignance set was regarded as best Hybrid set for BLU and thanks to Tizona AM3, you lose little in the way of DPS or TP feed. So it’s not quite as good as a dedicated Melee set BUT iirc it’s only like one step behind but you get all of the delicious DT and MEva benefits so if your soloing or avoiding STDs or something, hybrid all day.

Max Damage? Normal Melee set (All hail Thibron)
Max Hybrid? Probably most or all Malignancy (again, All hail Thibron)

I haven't been back long but best sword for blu non-rema, I'm solo with trust buffs.
I see every one either running DREAM or Naegling/kaja main.

I'm using Tanmogayi +1/Colada", augments='"Dbl.Atk."+2','DEX+10','Accuracy+16','Attack+14','DMG:+12

Is Naegling/kaja better? mainly spaming cdc.

For cdc, Tan/pinacolada might pull ahead.

But if you worked on a savage setup, Naegling will be better.

Naegling/Thibron is prob your best non-RMEA setup, using Savage Blade. If acc is an issue, Naegling/Zantetsuken.

Only case where Tan+1 really still has a place would be if you really wanted to focus on CdC for some SC-related reason, in which case Tan+1/Zantetsuken would work.

With 4/5 Malig and Tiz AM3, I love full timing the set against Omen, Dyna D, Escha/Reisen T2/T3/Helms. The amount of times I flat out resisted getting stunned/amnesiaed/petraed/etc has been worth it over melee set as that would've lost dps. Not too mention I barely take dmg. There's been plenty of times I outparse our R15 Calad drk because I can resist stuns whereas he can't.

Just curious, what's your 5th piece (non Malig) that you prefered over Malig?

Also, what's your WS set for Wave 3 mobs?

EDIT: 50% Adhemar Hands +1, 50% Body for Dual wield so he can use Windbuffet +1 belt.

Anyone has a tanking set with Malignance? With a Defending Ring and Ambuscade DT cape, we are close to 50%.

Was wondering what other gear would fit with such a set (i.e. Odnowa vs Ethereal/Etiolation earrings, Flume belt? DT Torque?)

Made a Tizona for the MP recovery for spell spamming and AM3 makes TP gain a breeze on Malignance.

I usually use a trust tank for soloing BCs, was wondering how much I can tank with such a set.

Any recommendations on spell set for a tank/DD built?

I'm actually using 4/5 malig because I'm missing feet lol; 400 runs and still no drop. I'm using herc boots with TA aug for the time being.

For W3 I'm actually normally on cor. I guess with brd buffs and stewpot (for the magic acc I love stun locking mobs in dyna) the Expia set on the guide should be good enough. It's what I use in all content

I'm missing feet as I mentioned but this is what I use to tank. I don't worry about pulling hate from our tanks anymore lol. So far I've been able to solo with trusts all of zitah (t3s and helm included), ru'aun t1s, t2s, and pakecet, reisen t1s, delves, lilith easy. I plan on tackling lilith normal, reisen t2/t3s, and some omen bosses soon.

Thanks, any particular spells that you set or do you just go with DD traits?

Don't have the belt atm, I might have to try Boneyard Gully for the Dual Wield +6 belt instead. This looks like a fun challenge to try tanking 5 mobs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KOhGnV3ymAc

I have amazing luck with Lilith with THF on VE, got all the pieces after a week of spamming 30-40 runs per day.

Wow you're very lucky; I'm jealous. This is normally what I roll with. I like DD traits with some utility

The dedition? Just for store tp. If you mean Eabani just to cap dual wield and some magic eva. I just have dual wield 3 and if my math is right I need 11 dual wield in gear (7 from belt) to cap attack speed.

My budget friendly version of the build.

ItemSet 369822

I switch to Store TP Ring when aftermath is up, used Epona when building the initial TP. Am debating about switching to Rajas for the additional Subtle Blow.

The mithras are surprisingly generous, dropped belt, helm and katana in one D run.

They're pretty close it seems depending on the piece. Malignance is probably a slightly better option for landing the additional effect, while some pieces of Jhakri+2 may be better if it's anything you care about the damage I guess.

Whats killing you? BLU mows her down pretty fast.

Use a Hybrid set, grab at least one trust with dispel. Turn if you see spikes cast. Any subtle blow is a bonus to limit TP.

In order to limit the damage taken im losing DPS so losing hate to trusts, but she still seems to be hitting me pretty hard.

is it worth just going full DPS?
