So! A Ninja Bandwagoneer wants to take it up to the next level? YOU’VE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE! Find out the Best in slot gear for your Ninja in 2.4! Just a fair warning: Ninja BiS is a little weird in 2.4. Lots of options, lots of little things to consider…
Just like the disappearing properties of ninja, Pre 2.4 gear didnt exist. Check out the Monk BiS P2 for pre 2.4 gear. Here are two very different BiS sets for you to choose from:
What’s the difference between sets? The first list is a fairly standard BiS which aims to minimize SS (Huton is more than enough) while hitting ACC caps and naturally obtaining the highest ilvl possible. (+70 “wasted” SS). It has a few nice quirks such as Accuracy cap w/o food, and having only 1 point of wasted accuracy.
The second list is a bit unique (IE Controversial, haha). It has very low bonus SS (+15 “wasted” SS). With a general increase in both Crit and Det (Crit+18++ and Det +20 compared to first list). But you have -2 DEX. This list is naturally TP conserving as all low SS builds.
It all boils down to this:
List 1: +55SS, +2 DEX || VERSUS || List 2: 34 Crit, +20 DET
The difference between both lists really is microscopic, though. The difference is only 3 pieces of gear. Alot of people hate SS, so both lists can cater to each side of the camp, both being equally powerful.
Lastly, I know it’s sad the “standard” list doesn’t use the AI Legs. It’s still a great piece to own when you’re over acc cap.
What order and what pieces to buy as NIN with your Poe tomes? Here’s a good outline:
- Weapon (See notes)
- Chest (Dread t13)
- Ring (Forced)(Dread t12)
- Choker (Dread t11)
- From here, pieces aren’t part of “standard” BiS, but great to own (Part of List 2)
- Legs (Dread t12)
- Boots (Dread t10)
- Ring (ONLY IF YOUR FIRST ONE IS UPGRADED)
- Rest is OPTIONAL.
Don’t rush weapon if you’re a long ways off the tome from T11 and Carbontwine from T12. Farming an HA weapon from Nael (Turn 9) would be far more cost-efficient.
2.4 NIN Crafted Gear Viability
Arachne Shirt of Scouting is a massive investment. No other 110 gives accuracy!
Cost effective melds: ACC IV, CRIT IV (Only ACC II fits past this point, it’s also full on DET)
Kirimu Sandals of Scouting is great for the same reason. No accuracy in other 110 boots!
Cost effective melds: CRIT IV, CRIT IV,(Only ACC III and CRIT III fit after)
Both of the above gear pieces are amazing! They’re full on DET and gives much needed ACC! The rest are just luxury DPS increases from their 110 counterparts.
Better investments: Legs, Head
Not so good: Belt, Hands
Have fun gearing your Ninja for BiS in 2.4!
