Okay, there's not much new to mention here except for the new PUP AF+1/Relic and Nyzul update. I'm not so fussed about the rest!
Anyway, my opinions on the new armor:
Pup. Tobe +1
Automaton: Max HP and Max MP Bonus
Crap unless you're using it for Magic Mortar build, of course.
DEF:45 HP+15 Accuracy+10
Good contender to Palwuhan, Antares and Enkidu's. The Acc+ for the Automaton affects all frames as a bonus too.
Pup. Babouches +1
DEF:12 HP+19 STR+5
Enhances "Repair" effect
Great WS and TP piece for people with no Usukane.
DEF:17 HP+14 INT+2
Automaton: "Magic Atk. Bonus"+5
Crap unless you're using BLM head as a replacement BLM, then it's good!
Puppetry Taj +1
DEF:16 HP+15 DEX+5 VIT+5 MND+5
HP recovered while healing +3
MP recovered while healing +3
DEF:19 HP+12 STR+3 AGI+3
Adds "Regen" effect
Automaton: Adds "Regen" effect
Good for idling/resting and WS, (Usukane Head still beats it, but it looks nicer than Voyager Sallet, which is the only other "decent" STR head piece for PUPs.)
Pup. Dastanas +1
DEF:13 HP+18 STR+5 AGI+5
Enhances "Maneuver" effects
Reduces "Overload" rate
"Meh" WS piece compared to Enkidu's. Posibly good for surpressing Overload if it's an icnrease on the NQ. I'll test it fo' sho'
DEF:18 HP+16 DEX+2 CHR+2 Haste+3%
Great for TPing if you can cap Acc in other places, hopefully the Haste works on the automaton's spell recasts too. Fuck me for getting Usukane right before these though, lol.
Pup. Churidars +1
DEF:26 HP+16 DEX+5 CHR+5
Automaton: Enhances "Cure" potency
Spell interruption rate down
Crap. Unless you're main healing, but if that's the case what's your number so I can verbally deck your party's face in.
DEF:32 HP+13 STR+2 VIT+2
Automaton: Magic Accuracy+5
Overshadowd by Usukane once again in terms of TP/WS, but a nice TP piece for the +Acc, or an addition to BLM head's nuking mode alongside it's feet counterpart.
DEF:6 DEX+5 Attack+15
Hoooly shit. I came.
As for the Nyzul relic, I'm still on floor 50, but we'll be getting 100 for everyone soon enough. I'm seriously considering taking up the PUP Mythic Weapon, too:
Enhances "Martial Arts" effect
Aftermath (Incl. Automaton):
Inc. Acc./Atk., Occ. attacks twice
I can't begin to explain why I'd want this. I really don't need to either. One of the longest journeys of my FFXI life is about to begin, I can feel it...
So yeah, a good update! I'm happy eventually I'll get a bunch of this stuff in due time!
