The most "fun" relic weapon to use in today's FFXI...Follow

I have all jobs leveled and I love them all. Only relic I have is an Amano. I figured it's time to build a second one. Most people will say that I should build one for a job that I enjoy the most, but what if I enjoy them all equally? I figured I'll build the weapon that's the most fun to use.

I asked some friends and heard some great responses. Some recommend Ragnarok since it's superb damage and cool looking/feeling WS are great fun. Some say Apocalypse is the most fun since it's unique drain/haste WS is simply amazing. Others point at Mandau and tell me just how awesome a THF becomes with it. And so on...

Every little suggestion helps, so your input is appreciated. Judged purely on "fun factor", what is the best relic out there right now?

Since you have a SAM, go for the bow. That way you can dual wield Relics. Plus no need to sub ranger for your ranged WS to be available.

...draining with sambas is kind of like you smack the thing and as you smack blood flies out... normally the blood would just you know fall and be red an what-not, but, with the samba your all whacked out and decide to drink the blood as it flys out. thus not adding MORE damage just taking more advantage of your damage. at least thats my take on it.

If you enjoy doing damage then make a rag.

Depending on how often you play without others supporting you, you might find Apoc to be a more "fun" choice. A friend of mine usually plays Taru DRK and as a result he became well known among our circle of friends for getting his *** kicked all the time. Once he finished Apoc, he became able to survive several situations that he otherwise would not have, thanks to the HP drain on Catastrophe. It's not as potentially damaging as Rag (and it's restricted to only one job, whereas Rag is on three), but it's still certainly not a bad weapon.

Thanks for the responses guys. To be honest, I am kind of narrowing it down to Rag and Apoc but I am still open to other options.

I agree with this point, also consider the benefits of adding a good ranged DD with a ws with no hate. (not that this matters anymore but who knows with the new expansion)

Forgive me for being drunk, but even though I saw this topic earlier today, I just read it as "Most fun weapon skill" for some reason.

Get an Empyrean. Ukon War.

Even without Ukon, Fell Cleave is the most fun weapon skill, and you can do it with any decent great axe, Nothing quite like 1K+ damage across 7-10 enemies at once to make you feel amazing.

The Annihilator is fun. The ability to unload ws after ws and not pull any hate while watching sams/wars/drks run around trying to kite while waiting for cures is fantastic and slightly humorous.

Landing 15k+ barrages is rather **** too.
You have drg, blu, mnk, nin, war and blm? Can you come bard? Come bard.
