"Wah, I have no friends." isn't actually a good counter-argument for the former."

I didn't say I have no friends, I said my -well geared- friends are on a break or playing very infrequently right now. Also, when I spoke of offering alternatives I was referring to you, and funny, I don't see you offering any advice on specific pieces other than to point me to Saevel who was not answering the question I asked though I do appreciate you listed stats in priority order.

As for a soapbox... I didn't barge into your thread asking advice on how to build an empy saying "oh it's too hard." You did come into my thread asking a very specific question (which wasn't 'is getting an empy difficult?') and berated me for not being interested in making one. I don't think it is unreasonable to wish that folks would actually answer the ACTUAL question I had - which was - out of X events, what are some pieces of gear worth chasing after?

I also don't think getting an empy is hard. It's boring and time consuming. There -is- a difference. I am very sorry if the way I like to spend my in game time (and the way I don't like to spend my in game time) offends you, but it's a game, not a job.

After seeing a good number of my friends quit the game shortly after getting theirs, I don't see getting one as a way to making the game more enjoyable... I see it as a grindy time sink that burns people right out. Given that:

a) I don't actually need one to play the game, especially the content I am interested in
b) There is a lot of things I'd rather do
c) There is plenty I can do that would improve my character without making one
d) there is likely to be another super weapon set introduced with the new expansion, which may have a better sword anyway
e) I play more than one job, and out of the jobs I have BLU is not the one that needs an empy the most if I was going to make one

When it comes to sitting around not doing anything for long periods of time, only being active for short windows, and marginal changes and sidegrades I'd say FFXI players were the perfect choice for politicians.
