I'd never get that anyway so 90 is fine for me, most people seem to be fixated on the cost of the mythic weapon and its rarity/difficulty to obtain as making it the logical best choice keeping in mind that it is also a level 90 weapon I won't ever get to 99 stage it is also not something I personally would use.
Protip: When you stop making choices based on what will make you happy and provide fun in a game your doin' it way wrong.
Unless mythics are your thing and will provide that feeling.
Somebody didn't actually read the thread beyond the first mention of Kannagi and didn't want to feel stupid for picking it over Mythics.
Protip the third: Mythic Katana is better than Kannagi, or at least the best offhand to a Kannagi you could make in a week if you were lazy.
Statistical certainty has nothing to do with it. You chose poorly and we of this thread totally called that somebody would. Edited, Jul 14th 2012 11:36am by Raelix
I read this thread and ones before it on ffxiah.com saying how bad it would be to choose it over a Mythic etc but if it is what I would like and want to use it can't really be stupid and my odds of winning are such that ultimately it probably won't matter I may not even be playing anymore next year so it would be nice for me to have it before I leave.
I don't think it would be better really and the model alone is enough to convince me not to use it as it looks kind of rubbish even as an offhand weapon lol I'll settle for looks over killing X NM 30 seconds faster which lets face it is all these weapons do, just makes you do what you did yesterday a little bit faster and more efficiently either way the monster with enough support and mostly appropriate gear winds up dead.
Choosing poorly has nothing to do with this situation though we are both thinking about it in different ways.
I'm looking at what I want to have fun with, I would like a Kannagi but don't have one. I don't care for the Mythic weapon at all, if I won the Mythic I'd still want a Kannagi though if I win the Kannagi I'll be content which meets my needs and goals.
Your viewpoint is based on the relative ease and effort required to obtain the Kannagi as opposed to the Mythic, with this in mind it seems unreasonable and foolish for someone to choose a lesser item over such a rare coveted piece. There has been much player specualtion as to why Empyrean weapons have been grouped with Mythics particularly if only up to the 90 stage likening it with SE being out of touch and not knowing the game etc.
We are both right though most of the people posting here on the forum will probably share your view as that is the nature and standpoint of most players with commited ties to the forums and with their experience of the game what they see as the correct choice.
I've been playing since 2006 now and have followed and tracked up a lot of information but often make choices that from a numbers or pure logic sense you may find more akin to a newb or a player who does not understand the game, though most of these choices often boil down to the fact that I find some aspect of it unrewarding or unnecessary and or otherwise compromising my enjoyment of the game. I'm at fault every single time and you can prove it wrong or obsolete with ease but I cannot put into words how right it feels and how much more enjoyment I derive from playing its a shame that you probably won't be thinking anything more than this guy must suck lol. Though my explanation is lacking detail so that is to be expected but don't worry that is not the case I prefer upper medium as a modest evaluation.
