Since the job forums have been pretty inactive for awhile, I thought I'd start a new topic in each devoted to things you'd like or wish that Square Enix would do with each job. They can be legitimate things you'd like to see, or they could be absurd, and, while they can be, they don't have to be any serious or groundbreaking changes you think each job needs, just something you think would improve them a bit in some form. Just try to keep the topic clean and drama free (emphasis on try). Just have some fun with this and let your ideas soar.
Equipment for your automaton you can equip to it to improve its stats and capabilities. Do you have it in a primarily ranged mode? Put on some pieces that improved Ranged Attack and Accuracy. Have it in nuking mode? Throw on some Int/MAB gear. I know predominantly that's what the maneuvers are for, but something to add further customization and improved performance can't hurt in my opinion.
