Hi -

Always wanted to actually play SMN and now seems like the right time to do so! Might even go for the Nirvana if I'm enjoying it. :3

While I'm gearing up, though: which pieces of AF/Relic/Empy reforged are Worth It? Which pieces are Absolutely Necessary?

I know a LOT with SMN depends on what other gear you have, especially w/ stuff like Blood Pact delay - right now I've got the Convoker's Doublet +2 as something to beeline for, along with the Bracers +1, and the Beckoner's Horn, Doublet, and Spats +1, and Glyphic Pigaches +1. Wondering if there's anything else.

(+3s aren't really super available for me right now on anything other than Geomancer, but I can probably swing the +2 of anything. I know this affects the math on e.g. Samurai, which I'm also trying to gear and play finally 'cause I've always wanted to.)

The body and feet AF pieces are pretty good. I 5/5 sets as I have a problem but I'd definitely start with those 2 of the AF pieces.

You'll definitely need the body.

I don't use the feet as much it at all. I use 2 of each Apogee+1 head and feet, 1 apogee+1 legs and 1 Enticer's legs from SR with capped augments.

For hands, I get 2 merlinic hands and aim for BP+10 and Pet STR/Attack and Pet:MAcc/MAB augments, respectively.

Beckoner's Horn +1 is a Must.
AF+3 Body when you can.

The rest arent as important

Apogee Head/Legs/Feet/Body all better then Relic+3 I think, or good enough atleast.
AF+3 Feet/Hands nice but not needed often enough.
Beckoner's Pigaches +1 is nice for Siphon.
Enticers Pants for Merit Bloodpacts and some single hit TP based ones.
Merlinic Dastanas with BP +8~10 Pet:Atk or Acc & 2nd pair with BP+8~10 & Pet:MAB.
Grioavlor With BP+8~10 Pet MAB:20+
Helios Head/Feet works for physical Pet: Acc, DblAtk & BP augments.
