Unfortunately it is probably safe to say that this isn't worth bumping anymore. The list hasn't been updated in almost a year.
This is true, and wickedbear is deeply sorry. I came to this forum today to check this very reason to see if anyone has taken over. I said my goodbyes, and no one cared or even knew who I was. That's ok, I never did much for the community other then offer some evidence that sarashi might be worth taking, and not to just take applepie's data for granted. I helped by trying to keep this challenge going, and offering advice to the thousands of questions that had been asked before, and probably are still asked today. I fought against some popular people on this forum for what I thought was misguided information and assumptions. However, if warrior is still the true class it once was, somone should be taking this challenge upon themselves, it is the last request for a dedicated warrior who hung up his axe a very long time ago.
Sorry guys but it's time for me to move on from FFXI.
Im sure many of you reading this post don't even know who I am or care that im leaving, but to who it does concern or matter to, I am moving on to WoW with some of my friends from FFXI, and real life. FFXI end game I never really had time for, but what I did i enjoyed in the game, and i loved everything about the job, even when it became even more popular after rangers got smacked in the face.
As far as the great axe challenge goes, ive gotten about 10 requests for an axe in the entire time playing this game as Odin's only sponsor, im not sure how many people had luck with it, but i won't be able to devote time to this forum any longer. It truly was a great idea started by demos, and carried on by Rhapsh, and id like to thank them for the time they devoted into trying to help people become better players. If somone wishes to carry on the tradition they can feel free,but do not take up the tradition if you cannot devote the time to keep it updated.
Ive stopped reading these forums about 2 months ago when i couldn't stand alot of the topics that were coming up, and stopped playing about 3 weeks ago, so im pretty sure im not going to be making a return to the game in any way, although i may stop by to say hi. But I would like to thank Quor, for inspiring me to take up Warrior, and actually made me enjoy the game for all the time I spent on it. Quor will always be the warrior I most respect.
Last thing i wish to say, is take pride in your job as warrior. Be proud of the versatility you were given, and proud of the capablities you have if you preform well, but don't gloat.
I wish you all luck leveling, and accomplishing your goals. <3

I miss the days of coming to this forum to read new posts by quor, zalkaria, grumpywookie, and mumitroll. I miss reading wookie's funny stories and laughing about them with guildies(is he still around?). It was also nice to see just the general viewpoint of warriors in general. However, the community changed, the game changed, and warriors changed. People became unwilling to experince things, test things, and warrior became the new ranger(I quit before expansion). All the warriors on my server were afraid to do anything but sub nin and dual weild, it was tiring(not that that isn't a good choice, but for some levels its not really an option). When the forum became as narrowminded as my server did, i quit the game and the forum. I said my goodbye and no one even bothered to pick up this challenge when I requested it.
I quit a year ago like said. I said my goodbyes, and told somone to take up the challenge in my apsence but no one did my request. If you feel like you should now, please do, it is a worthy cause if you care about your class. I did this because I wanted to help the community know what warrior was truly about, and they lost that mindset, maybe somone can put them back on it.
