Hi pups

I have recently got to 99 and am starting to progress my pup.

I would like to ask if an experienced pup wouldn't mind sharing their gearsets so I can work out some progression. A list of different sets alone would likely help.

I am also struggling with the frame/head and attachment options so would love to see your most used setups and when you generally use each one.

Thanks

There are a couple sets on the bottom there, downgrade to NQs if need be

Doesn't seem to link properly so you'll have to copy/paste the url

I'm also interested in seeing some sets as well though. What are people pet: WSing in, if there's any swaps to be done?

Also what are people using on their ambu cape now that there's a 8%/9% pet:haste belt?

What is the reasoning behind the Maneuvers changing after 3 minute duration?

Alright, so say I have that RNG set. I have 29% gear haste, do I then use a Turbo Charger II and that caps Automaton haste?

Pet gear haste caps at the same value for pets as it does for players.

Ok so Turbo Charger is the auto's version of magic haste? So should always run both to cap that out?

That might explain why I'm still doing a good bit more damage than my auto, we'll see if I manage to get PUP to feel functional/strong by the end of JPing it.

The attachment gifts are insane, you'll see a difference once you get those.

Yeah I got the first one and that unlocks a good bit, but I am not running augmented herc as suggested on the guide and auto is still 60~ ranged from cap skill so while he's starting to do fine damage (1.2k auto ranged on apex bats, 6-8k ws) it's nothing impressive. But so far I've just been running as fusion opener for a WAR buddy's resolution, so not even close to gearing for max Auto damage.

The impressive damage on Apex Bats isn't so much from the base damage of the weaponskill. Its from having Speedloader x2 and 2+ fire maneuver's active... then that 6~8k Weaponskill skillchains 19k or 34k damage depending on how many you are stacking.

Shijin Spiral > Armor Piercer > Victory Smite > Armor Shatterer > Victory Smite
is a pretty nice solo skillchain. even if you have mediocre damage, you are doing 1/2 the bat's hp with it.
