What was it that SE had said at vanafest? Or was it not very clear. I haven't played for a couple months, so I forgot exactly.

Something like, current relics/mythics would get a version 2 (magians). Then there would be new relic type weapons released. And then they would allow people to use relics/mythics as an ingredient towards a new super Ultimate Weapon to end all weapons? Like a kind of Goku/Vegeta fusion? Or am I just thinking up that last part on my own?

I don't recall reading that but I wasn't keeping up with everything that came out of paySEmore$fest. Somehow I have a really hard time believing them when they use the words "ultimate" or "final".

Well, the name definitely sounds way too easy to pervert. Twashtar seems to be derived from Tvastar, which is from the Vedic religion and means heavenly builder. It is said he is invoked when desiring offspring (called garbha-pati, or lord of the womb.) He has also been called Rathkara, or chariot maker. He created the Vajra for Indra and also created Vrtra to kill Indra when Indra killed his son Trisiras.

What if any connections this will have to anything else in-game is yet to be found and I didn't delve too deep into all the other connections. Their definitely keeping a South Eastern Asia theme with their Dagger nomenclature as the Mandau is knife of the Dayak people of Borneo and the mandala is very prominent in the philosophies of the area.

Twashtar is obtained by doing 2 Magian Trials on the Kartika

1) Kill Tammuz 8 times

2) obtain 50 glavoid shells

Daka is obtained by doing a different second trial

2) Obtain 30 coins of birth.

Looks like the NM needed to get the glavoid shells is a difficult Tier3 Abyssian pop mob. Don't know the details yet. I'm just speculating that because I read that a different Empyrian Weapon required 50x items from such a mob, so I assume the same will be true for Twashtar. Really hoping that the mob drops quite a few of these per kill..

Sham, I know it may be a shot in the dark but I have a gut feeling that these weapons will be the new relics that we have always been asking for.

The complaints about the dynamis relic and ToAU mythic weapons have always been that they require not just a huge amount of effort but also tons of gil.

Since, SE has said that these will be augmented on future updates and right now they are the highest dot/dmg weapons from the Trial of the Magians, I have a feeling that they will be the new best weapons.

However, I do not think they will top dynamis relic. I can see them beating, in dot/dmg, the mythic weapons as they already do. Most likely they won't have the bonus a la mythic.

When you look at it, they do take effort. However they don't take a huge linkshell or tons of gil.

I think their choice of making it 50 glavoid shells was because it would take people 3-6 months to complete it (of course hardcore players will do in way less time). That 3-6 month time period would be right around the time the new update would be rolling in and the weapon getting another improvement.

There are another 2 reason why SE isn't releasing any new weapons that will take forever to complete and they are FFXI is getting old and FFXIV is right around the corner. They know a lot of people love FFXI but they are no longer willing to spend a humongous time going after anything new in this game.

Don't forget, a lot of us started the game in our teens. Now we are adults and have to devote most of our time to RL.

They wouldn't have updated Mandau to be better than Twashtar in the same update if that were the case.

When the dev team was discussing these weapons as the "new set of ultimate weapons" at vanafest, I couldn't tell if they meant that it would be another set to exist in parallel to relics/mythics, or if they would be the successor. But I'm slightly leaning towards the opinion that these will be "successor" weapons in the long run; that at some point, they'll be stronger. But who knows. I also believe these are "the" weapons. I mean they've already been defined as a special class (Empyrean Weapons), are strong, and difficult to obtain. If they really do require 50 Tier3 VNM drops though, that is... a lootttt of work. Like working full-time, I think it would take up like all my remaining free time to gather it in 3-6 months.

Quote:
Overly difficult mob. Was with Cichy on the kill, Benediction'd at 70%, damage dropped by probably 75% and it would randomly absorb any magic damage done to it. Kaitens dropped from 800~ to 200~. Spams buffs, has a potent TP regen, need to spam the @#%^ out of dispel. At about 50% after Bene, it used Cyclonic Turmoil 3-4 times in a row, killing every melee and one Pld (Aegis). While we were recovering and still doing some damage, it started spamming Cure VI, for about 800-1000. Didnt move it for 5 minutes, then re-engaged and it magically stopped using Cure VI til about 10%, where it started spamming Cure VI again. Worked it down to 8% and it stopped Curing again. At 2%, it used Cyclonic Turmoil 3-4 times in a row again, killing the DD once again. I worked my way up outta there and finished it with Meikyo Shisui. Randomly cast with some amount of Fast Cast, Aeroga 3 for 900-1500, Aero 5, and Tornado 2. Tough sh*t.

It makes you wonder what the successive trials are going to entail eh? Of course by level 99 taking on something like that will (hopefully) be a little more bearable, but by then they'll have implemented even tougher trials to correlate with the higher levels. If it's anything like the relic system of 400 --> 1400 ---> 6100 ---> 10,000 coins then the worst is very much yet to come. That's just ... wow O.O.

I actually wonder what the next add ons will bring. Didn't S-E say that abyssea would be something where we could pick and choose an expansion and go for what gear suited us best? Something to the extent that each add on was a separate entity similar to the mini expansions? I thought I remembered hearing that before visions came out (maybe I'm thinking incorrectly). While not impossible to do; the current set of 3 zones would take a long time if people need farming in each area, and the old "I help you if you help me" means you'll end up farming all 3 current zones for your stuff. If they added two more expansions with 3 zones each then that's... a whole lot of content to explore O.O. It's looking like it's going to be a very eventful period coming up between now and this time next year

But well, SE always failed.... So I'm not surprised that they will fail again in the future.
They could have let SCH weather effect works for Magians... It's not like Magians can be finished real easy or quick even with SCH weather effects. For instance, pet last blow or ws last blow or elements damage last blow... They are all over hundred kills :/

I could finish 200 flans in a few hours with a duo partner and helix. 250 manticores would be even faster.


200 apkallu though is a different story. I have no idea what SE was thinking with that one.

Apkallu become essentially unsoloable after about 8-10 kills, and basically unkillable after about 20 kills.

EDIT: And it takes about a week for hate to reset from maximum to normal for the area.

You are correct, SE did say that or we're having the same hallucination, although I can't recall where they did.. I want to say Vanafest.

Also, to add onto the Abyssea discussion. I am extremely happy with the content thus far, though the time limit is irking, yet is the only real downside I've encountered thus far.

Here's the thing though, Apkallu hate is by area not by individual person. So all it will take is one person killing 20 or so Apkallu in a zone and nobody else will be able to do Apkallu trials in that zone for another week.

Timesinks are one thing, but this is just retarded even for SE.


Then again, maybe the people who designed the trials don't know about Apkallu hate (and yes I can totally believe that this might be the case). The person designing the trials might have just saw a mob with a list of nasty abilities and used it for a few trials without knowing anything about their group hate system.

You know I bet that would work! Aside from day/weather requirements the only other stipulation for the trials is fighting members of the appropriate family that yield experience when killed. You could probably do this with assault as well. Any event where the mob family exists and gives exp should work!! I never thought of that Shamaya but it's a good idea. I think I'll try that out with assault just to see.

This is what I did when I had to kill 100 monsters on light day/weather. Do some Nyzul Isle and you will always have light weather.

I am pretty sure all Apkallu in assault are NPC types. You can't fight and kill them.
And I have never seen Apkallu in MMM or Nyzul Isle before. I did see colibri in MMM so it might be possible.

But Lobi what dagger are you making that you need Apkallu for? Because Apkallu belong to the bird family. So birds like: Bat Trios, Birds, Cockatrice, Colibri, Giant Bats, Hippogryphs and Rocs might count also.

During 2hr (BWeap), it will randomly gain full immunity to something (Thunder 4 has no effect etc).

It is also a terrible NM.


Also: It's stunnable. Don't know if it gains resistance. It casts slowga, stonga IV, quake 2.

Yea, just saw that too...
F**k y** Square Enix...
Have you look at the process to get it pop?!
You need to kill 4 ... Yea, 4 different path of T2 NMs and hope for the luck to have key item drop to you and get all 4 key item to pop this... Sigh... I'm at the edge to give up being thief, shamaya ; ;
and you need to go thru at least 25 times repeatedly?! If you are lucky to have 2 shells dropped at once. If...

By the way, people who are going thru this, you might want to try to get Parazonium with DA+7. Adze is one of the NM you need to kill to get pop item...

Good luck to whoever going to get this dagger!!
I'm not sure I am on this now, anymore...

Suddenly those thousands and thousands of kill shots you have to do for relic/mythic don't look so bad any more.

So they made the Glaviod Shells drop off the Abyssea-Tahrongi zone mega boss rather than one of the various tier 3 NM's. That's really terrible >.<. It seems the 1 handed sword uses the Helm of Briarus from the Abyssea-La Thiene mega boss, and Abyssea-Konstant's Petsie boss drops the Kukulkan's Fang, although wiki doesn't say which trial that one is and I'm unfamiliar with that item. The only way I think I'd ever get this now is if the worm also drops some other really desirable item like the Bullwhip Belt which would be in such high demand people would spam the thing as much as possible for it. Otherwise getting 50 of these is a really monstrous task. Also this

Funny you should say that because you need to kill it to access Lacovie, which drops this.

Ahh, so the information that the Goading belt was on Karkinos was false. That's interesting. Lacovie also drops the the Hero's Galea and the Saika Hachimaki which are pretty good items in their own right as well. Still, the Glaviod information is really harsh so even if people do spam it it's not something that can be done fast. Twashter is quite a task no matter how you look at it. I'll be starting the Golem phase of my Thunder Dakini tomorrow *ish* and I've begun my second Dakini which I'm taking down the flame path. I'll be perfectly happy with those for the time being. Twashter is just out of my reach. The trials leading up to the 50 glaviod shells are time consuming already, and no matter how you slice it unless you can collect all 50 Glaviod shells the Dakinis are stronger than the kartika.

Kartika -- Damage 39, delay 201
Dakini -- Damage 38, delay 190, plus either 6 str/16 attack or 6 dex/12 accuracy

A finished Thunder or Flame Dakini with both blow the Kartika out of the freakin water. It's a comparison of 1 base damage versus 11 delay plus the bonus stats, and that's a margin of approximately 10-20% damage difference (wide estimate but it's in that vicinity). Unless you can collect the 50 glaviod shells you'll hit a permanent roadblock meaning Twashter is all or nothing (very much like Mandau since Batardeau is also destroyed by the Dakini's). Unless you can go all the way you're better off not attempting Twashter at all. I'm choosing the latter myself since my playtime/shell support are too limited and I don't know what's going to happen next update when the magian's weapons grow another tier and the flame/thunder branches are expanded upon once more. Twashter is definitely the new vein of relic s-e is creating, and they DID say it would be much harder than any previous weapon. There is a chance that the flame/thunder Kila paths may surpass the Twashter in another update or two, meaning you'd have to continue growing your Ultima Weapon with the new tasks to keep it current. That last bit is speculation of course, but logical speculation. Take that as you will.

More good news! >.>;

Just saw this as well... for the best Parazonium dmg path.

SE doesn't seem to have enough hard time to make Thief upset. I guess...

And yea, all the sudden, I should go back to Mandau and focus on that better...

Interestingly enough Cuelebre also has the Auric Dagger in addition to the OAT dagger Magian items. Aside from the fact that it's going to be a pain in the ass to fight as anything but a mage (impossible really) there's something I don't understand about this mob.

Quote:
* Spawn amongst Nauls at (E-9).
* Always flies.
* Does not melee.
* Can use Bai Wing.
o Will spam Ochre Blast after using Mighty Strikes.
* Can cast Slowga, Stoneskin, and Breakga.
o Stoneskin can not be dispelled.
* Does not use Draw In.
* Has increased movement speed.


If it always flies and does not melee.... then what in the world is the point of giving him Mighty Strikes???

I havent heard nearly enough talk about Fusetto. Its the fastest dagger to obtain, D37, Del 186, STP+8. It certainly competes with the dakinis (slightly worse), but considering its good delay, damage, stp and relative walk in the park to obtain I feel it deserves a more notable position. Should it be upgraded further I imagine it will be a great contender all around.

It is the best stop-gap fix for upgrading daggers. I was loving my blau/sirocco. I began an OAT Athame back on day 1 of the feb-ish update. Still not done. Began twashtar day of release......D39 kartika and hit the glavoid wall. So i started a Fusetto just to get something underway instead of yet another monster time synch into the dakini line. Dakinis will just jump up even more in the future in time investment. Im hoping the fusetto path will split up into 3 paths 1 for each job and get to their respective exclusive WS or even a higher damage/more STP combo.

Anyway, as with all the updates, all we can do is look at what is the best now but accept that it all might turn on its head on the next one. Dont get to vested in the now. (1 more reason i love fusetto. If its obselete I havent wasted much effort)

Historically SE has always made good THF gear a gigantic pain in the ass. I've begun to seriously believe that SE doesn't like THF. Or at least someone on the development team doesn't.

Or the production director is a Thief hater!
So tempted to hire someone to assasin him :p

Anyway, I did look at Fusetto. In my opinion, the Evis +10% is more bearing for DNC.
Consider that now they can DNC/SAM and self-sc plus Sc bonus JT.
I am DNC80, and seriously think to get one but not the store to version.
It should be great for solo anything. It is enhancing dmg to deal with, since DNC can tank many NMs and always a problem of lacking dmg dealt and coz long time fighting.

p.s. I'm not a big fans of Store tp, when I'm not main SAM. :p
