Hello Fellow Red Mages,
I have been working on staff trials for my BLM, which I find useful on my RDM as well, since I typically set up as a back line nuker/enfeebler on my mage. However, I have been wanting to work on a sword trial as well. My sword skill is almost capped and I have finally quested Savage Blade, so I would like to take my RDM to the front line and start melee'ing a bit more. With this in mind, I am trying to determine what the best swords for me would be.
I like the Khanda +2 that occasionally attacks 2-4 times, but I am not sure if this is the best melee sword for RDM. I am also looking at the MAB/INT sword just to have for when I want to nuke a mob down after whacking it around a bit.
What are your thoughts and suggestions on sword trials?
I am also curious what melee gear everyone is using. Up until recently I had been concentrating on accuracy because my skill was low. Now that it is almost cap, I need to put together a good set up for melee.
I appreciate everyone's input!
