Heya Kachi! Pent, Kaku,
and I started playing casually again recently (although they never post anymore), you know you want to too! :P
FFXIV looks sweet, hopefully SE learns from the mistakes they've made in FFXI. All of my current and past LS buddies are planning on starting together on it, so I'm pretty psyched!
Big changes in the past year or two:
4DEX= 3acc for 2handers
4STR= 3atk for 2handers
YGK get huge acc and atk bonuses making them perform very well against high level sh*t
everyone and their mother plays SAM now
DRG is beefy now
We got a couple minor pieces of gear, Nuevo Corsolete (the one you get to select stats for from list) is decentish for some starter/mid SAM builds but probably better used for other jobs.
They added JA: Sekkanoki which lets us WS at any tp level but only use 100% for simple self-SC, Hagun doesn't work quite right with it though
hasso/seigan/Cat2 merits existed before you quit right?
SE reveled our mythic weapon, kogarasumaru, and it is mediocre and harder to get than Relic (why I quit)
We got a new WS- Tachi:Rana (3 hits, chains w/ gekko for darkness) which is also pretty mediocre dmg wise Edited, Jun 3rd 2009 8:19pm by shintasama
