Good catch.thanks.with my incomplete setup I've had puppet MB Apex Bats for over 95,000. Think 99,999 is possible. Will test more on other endgame content.

Puppet Master Collar+2 technically better for neck with MAB+25 and mACC+25 but that's a steep price for little return.

All gear looks about right though I had more M.acc, MB nuking is how I mastered my PUP. Most people either don’t know that an automaton can MB better than SMN’s in JP parties or just don’t have the patience to find out. After putting my attachments together and watching the highs and lows of automaton nuking if only they made the AI better for BLMaton(to keep up with traditional nukers) it’d be a new normal to have PUP in MB JP parties.

Can have quite different augments on the three Herculean pieces if magic accuracy is desired over attack.on one of my pieces is have MACC and MAB split near +15 each with a kicker of the additional haste +2 augment I got.

Thing is, for pup to put out good numbers you need ice maker and kenkonken. To put out just okay numbers you drop the ice maker.

Either way you are best to ditch all mp attachments and resummon every few nukes, which ultimately makes burden a pita and requires kenkonken to avoid insanity of overloading. Not to mention you need to only deploy when its nukes time.

Pup may be able to put out a single nuke stronger than a smn, but its far easier and less stressful for a smn to put out very consistent nukes.

Hopefully with the pupdate next month they fix a few of the mage attachments that are less than stellar.

Pupdate..Haha. thank you. Absolutely why I started playing around with ice maker when I got kenkoken. 3 ice maneuvers and I'm seeing some respectable bursts. Alone Thunder V was averaging in the 10K range on bats. Still tinkering around.

I am close to making the push on my PUP for JPs. I have just been solo SCing but am tempted to get into a normal party and MB.

What should my expectations be as a 500 JP pup with about 4/6 the level of gear listed above?

What is the best approach with out a KKK?

Without KKK I'd say you have to be a bit more careful with overheating. Look for gear with overload rate - and or cycle the elements of maneuver,maybe light or water with ice based on attachments used. Lastly keep an eye out for Cooldown JA.

Alternates:Nibiru Sainti Path D for Magic skill +20
Midnights: Overload rate -40 and Maneuver effects +2

Completely overlooked Tali'ah crackows +2 as easier to obtain decent feet armor with MACC+42 and Haste +7

So I was able to play with MBing yesterday and was doing about 55k. Still need to work on gear a bit more but was fun being able to fill that role in CP.

Question, is there something I can do to get it to guarantee casting a spell that will burst? I was trying to squeeze in two casts and I would get the thunder/blizzard casts which doesn't work with light obviously.

Amplifiers are the closest you'll get as far as I'm aware. Should probably be using them anyway if you're looking for MB damage since they increase it.
