Never brew locked anyway so not a big deal. I just wish I'd gotten rid of all the FC cruor while it would've made me millions lol.
Yeah, I am sure you're not the only one. I only used that trick when I was a 100K or 200K away from being able to afford an expensive item (especially something not often up on the AH) - but I feel like I got enough benefit out of it, regardless. I also agree with them nerfing it, because it was putting too much new gil into the economy.
I've never actually done VW >.> It always seemed like something for people way better geared than I am.
Naw, if you do the lower tiers almost anyone can deal with it as long as they know their procs and have the skill to hit them.
And then when you start doing Jueno etc, if you only have so so gear you're fine as a mage. As a blu, you need to have your spells, work with the other blu, set them, and have high enough skill/MACC that you can land the debuff procs - as a BLM you mostly just need to have the spells, as a BRD, it's mostly having high enough skill that your debuffs land and doing appropriate buffs (ideally with an appropriate instrument), as a whm, just don't suck as a whm. As a smn, do the appropriate procs and maybe toss out a heal or two? (not sure about SMN really) Not super hard. If you can manage that, you'd be fine in all city climbs and Jeuno up till at least tier 3. Tier 3 is great because it allows you to farm the bodies, which are all good in their own right, and upgrades to a lot of common gear out there (especially if you aren't doing, say, neo nyzul, which is sounds like you aren't) - you can also get heavy metal plates, which is a nice source of gil for a scrub player, and will allow you to make enough cash to get some decent AH gear.
The main key to success in voidwatch is HIT PROCS. Obviously it's good to have a few heavy DD with good weapons/WS to finish off mobs, but if the group is hitting their procs, even so-so DDs will have the time/space/temp items they need to finish off a mob on the lower tiers. Voidwatch only goes south when people don't work together to hit procs (like for example, I usually have a staff equipped for doing my procs as a blu, so if a staff proc is called, I pop my wing and take a swing at it since I usually have pld subbed, I can try a few WS - I've hit it a few times that way too. If sword is called, I strap on my sword and help out with that too. Ditto with club) Edited, Jan 24th 2013 1:49pm by Olorinus
