Learn to use multiple palates and macros for WS gear swaps and swap out another 7 pieces of gear. That will probably be easier and cheaper than trying to figure out how to upgrade the 5 pieces you currently swap for weapon skills, not to mention the added benefit of practicing something that will cross over to all of your jobs.

More than 6 pieces of gear swaps is easy on 360, don't use your laziness as a crutch.

As for gear specifically, I'd start with replacing ammo, bushi, keen for sure. There were better options when I quit at 90 cap, I'm sure there are other better options now @99. Next, neck, waist and Rajas unless you need some or all to keep your x-hit. Again, it's been so long since I quit that I have no idea. But I'm pretty sure there's a SAM gear thread on here with an explicit answer to your question, backed up with maths.

Yea I didnt really want to have to use 2 different macros ok I need to work on the ammo earring and ring slot. I just thought there was a way put everything on one macro on the 360 and just didnt know about it. So I will have to use 2 macros then. Thanks thats a good start.

STR, STR, and even more STR.

Become familiar with the macro commands:

/macro set # (Change to "#" macro line)
/macro book # (Change to macro book "#")

My WS macros start with one macro that swaps five pieces of gear and drops me into a macro line with all my WSs, they all have 5 more gear swaps.

Back slot too.

If you swap Tyrant's/Hoard ring instead of keen , bullwhip belt instead of goading and Mischui kappa instead of atheling, you can squeez 2% more haste and still maintain your X-hit

For WS u should try and work your macros to fit WS neck/waist/ring
or do 2 simple macros, 1 to swap 6 pieces of gear and a separate one with the rest of the ws gear and the ws

for example
/equip head "name"
/equip neck "name
/equip body "name"
/equip hands "name
/equip rring "name"
/equip back "name"

Thats the 6 lines for fisrt macro

/equip waist "name"
/equip feet "name"
/WS "Tachi: name" <t>

and heres the second macro

yeah u have to hit 2 macros but it can work , with /macroset u can just hit the same macro twice to do both things
