Looking for some decent sets for PDT and MDT that don't include rare/ex VW drops (my luck with drops being next to abysmal [one half-way decent drop in hundreds of pops]).

Edit: only sets i've been able to find so far have been for 90ish cap.

Any price really, not as big of a deal as it has been in the past.

Thankies~

When you say90ish cap do you mean you want sets for under 90 cap?

Engulfer's cape, flume belt, mekira body(nq/+1 off ah). I think everything else is voidwatch. Otherwise 90 sets are up to date.

For the most part. I've seen a few for above 90. but more or less all of those include the rare/ex drops from kaggen and the like, which i ruled out.

This is silly. PDT and MDT sets have been mandatory since well before VW came out and there are tons of options outside of VW.
Some important PDT options:
Arhat+1 body
Arhat+1 Head
Dark Rings augmented or Jelly Ring
Flume Belt
Wiglen Gorget or Twilight Neck

Some important MDT options:
Merman's Rings/Earrings
Avalon Breasplate
Twilight Torque
Merman's/Coral Gear

These are just some important pieces there are tons more.

I can agree that inventory is important, that is why I usually tend to not carry around items with under 4% PDT or MDT on them. It's still great to carry around something like Arhat+1 head+body, twilight neck, and two dark rings for 30%.

What kind of set are you using Ogier helm for on SAM? or is it solely for inventory +1 because of other jobs you may have?

Ogier helm
Twilight
mekira
melaco
mollusca
flume
ogier
jingang

and 2 6pdt rings will cap on both, this is ideal i think.

Edit...or you can skip mollusca price with rare/ex mantle (pdt 4 i think) if you get good pdt/mdt ring combo.

Not exactly cap, as you need 52% in gear to hit the PDT cap. This can be solved with some quested earrings.

I would look into pieces like shadow ring/mantle and if you already have them nocturnus gear for damage reduction options also.

I would like to go with this set if I can have more luck on VW drops



Could swap head for Ogier and back to shadow. I personally love getting hp from being hit 5% of the time.

Chances are if you get hit in vw you probably die, i only use set when fana/fools are down.

I've ended up tanking vw all too often and my pdt set kept me alive long enough for a proc. Not saying I wouldn't have without it, I like to think it helped though
