    I heard a few things about Akum armor, that's it's really not worth using and people would be better off using grunil armor or ofc. Boss gear, but I was just thinking of using on an alt.

    It is good budget gear which can be enhanced for a fraction of a cost of boss gear. Even more so if u have few artisans around. Some classes are more suited for it due to their mechanics. (No stamina bonus, lower accuracy on gloves).

    It's not something you use on your first/main character, the traditional Grunil or Heve is much cheaper before graduating to full boss. However Akum is great for alts, I've outfitted a number of alts and they do just fine in it.

    I wouldn't bother taking it past TRI though unless you are drowning in spare failstacks, the investment of valuable high end failstacks isn't worth it and TRI Akum Ultimate will let you do 99% of the game's content on your alt.

    Hey!
    Thanks for the replies. I think I stick to my grunil, as I can produce it myself and make okay armor until I get the last pieces of boss gear.
    :)
