I got burned out on FFXI a bit before Abyssea came along. Nothing else for me to do after I got filthy rich and got a relic. Then I thought about coming back and saw my relic was useless. Urge to play successfully killed lol.
Eventually, the urge to play a magic job and to just go explore came back. The welcomed knowledge that FFXI has begun to focus on low numbers and casual times really made me want to come back. I ran endgame events for the better part of 6 years, dealing with large groups of total @#%^ing idiots is the last thing I'd ever wan to do again. Thank the gods for Abyssea!
The real reason for this post is simple. What are some of the essential Atmas for BLMs specifically? I keep hearing things like atmas completely change the entire game in abyssea via a Razed Ruins thread. Is there anything groundbreaking or must-have for BLMs, or is it still melee getting all the love?
