    As for Tier 1, Some tests on FFXIAH showed that the Body "Augments Killer Effects" pretty much brings back what they used to be, Added Acc/Atk/Damage-taken/etc Vs The mob you have killer for. he said through tests it appears that "Killer +" gear also enhances that effect as well. So i've considered meriting full Killer Effects/Reward Timer. or Killer/Call Beast. right now its Reward/Call Beast.

    But that +2 Body really is intriguing, i wish i could find the thread.

    edit: Found it!

    Nursery Nazuna Caps at level 86. She is the only one of the 76+ jugs that caps so far. 2/5 BA merits are useful at this point.

    Also, if you want to use carrie + DG for 100% magic damage reduction, having a level 85 Carrie is required to make this viable at all. 5/5 BA.
    So they are still useful for these things.

    Yeah I wrote this mainly because I was confused on the outcome of killer effects where and the beat affinity.

    Was also wondering how the relic gloves came into play with BA merits

    Just like any good suggestions in the RDM thread get applied to SCH.

    Killer effects are actually a very good option if you have Gausape +1/2

    you get a +2/5% to damage from the "augments killer effects" from Gausape +1/2
    (same % -dt also)
    Killer effects merits will improve this by 1%/merit. So you can get a total of 10% damage improvement on anything you have killer effect for. Thats pretty sweet, and should probably be a priority for any DD focused bst.

    The way i have my merits right now is

    Group 1:
    Killer Effects 5/5
    Call Beast 5/5

    I have killer effects meritted cause i got a Tatami Shield and call beast because jug pets are like supreme now.

    Group 2:
    Feral Howl 5/5
    Beast Affinity 5/5

    I have BA merits cause i don't know when the pets will cap, so just in case i have them, and I have feral howl cause i like having a stun-like ability (terror) even though it doesn't work on anything in abyssea. (to my experience) It was good for soloing magic casting mobs.

    I know my merits could prolly be set up better but I really don't feel like reallocating them.
