Hey folks,

I'm starting to get into Escha content, and of the jobs I have at 99, it appears BST is my best bet at being able to contribute to a group that's clearing/farming NMs. I'm working to gear up my BST and have been told pet accuracy is most important (and I'm assuming I just hang back and let the pet do the work), so I put together a pre-Escha pet acc gear set on which I'd appreciate some feedback. The goal is to be able to use this set towards acquiring better gear in Escha. I also know Charmer's Merlin and Desultor Tassets are essential for Ready timer - can I full time those while just the pet is engaged or should they be part of a precast? Not sure how much that matters.

Anyway, here's the set:
ItemSet 342556
  • Arktoi would be fully upgraded

  • Assume 20-25 pet accuracy on Acro gear, and 15-20 on JSE cape

  • Couldn't really find any good rings (Adoulin ring isn't an option at this time but maybe in the future)

Thanks in advance for any help!

Only use axe and legs for precast. Get a pair of skirmish legs or the ones from the nm in cirdas caverns and the axe from bee delve is really good. I think the axe from marjami wkr has pet stats as well. The sobek in reisenjima is really easy if u go to #9 i guarantee theres someone soloing it that doesnt need the headpiece, you should try and get the headpiece off one of the soloing mages to replace the totemic, a few stones should get you decent accuracy maybe even dbl atk/crit rate. Everything else is 'good enough'.
