Didn't check overnight, but Laxedrane got the gist of my post, thanks Laxedrane! And Mikeyc, I'm in total agreement.
I think that Raelix may be acting very exaggerated to prove a point, but there's nothing entitled (acting, or sounding, or being) about Neo Nyzul because it's a senseless event.
If it's a senseless event, then why do it? The drops are fantastic, yes, but none of them will change how you play your job. None of them are required for any particular other event.
So why do Raelix and others feel entitled
to cheat in order to win it? If he didn't feel entitled to win Neo-Nyzul, he wouldn't have any reason whatsoever to cheat at it. He'd simply do something else, or do it legit like I do.
Lamps are definitely in that category to people who actually do the event, which I highly doubt includes any of the opposition in this thread.
Feel free to check my FFXIAH equipment history. I've got two Nares and two Phorcys, no cheating involved. [Edit: Ok... it seems FFXIAH.com still doesn't register those items, but trust me I have them.] You don't need to cheat to win Nyzul, in fact it doesn't even improve your odds that much. I'd say you go from maybe 90% luck (10% win chance with a really good group) to maybe 70-80% luck (20-30% win chance, again with a really good group).
Again, this is all based around your sense of entitlement. You feel you deserve to be able to beat this event under easier conditions than SE did, and so you cheat to improve your odds. You can cut it any way you like, but this is what it boils down to in the end. Why else would you swap lamp dats? "To make life easier"? Please. If you want an easier life, play an easier game. Don't lower the bar on something other players have to do the legit way, and cheapen the experience for everyone else, resulting in threads like this where anyone who has Neo-Nyzul gear is assumed to be a cheater.
