I would like to help. Every time I offer advice to a WAR with GS, I seem to get the same response. STFU n00b! GS is awesome! I just shake my head and /cry. Why are there so many WAR's out there that just will not listen?

I'm not rich and won't be playing again till mid-February, but if anyone on Carby can't reach one of the mentors, I will do my best to put the appropriate Great Axe in their hands when I get back.

I have my Neckchopper and Sturmwind and for anyone who requires a demonstration, I will provide that free of charge as well. There really is no contest. I wish there was a way for people to see the Weapon ratings in-game, it would avoid so much confusion. I guess that's why the best players stay the best.

For Herro: You simply must pick up the Moth Axe at that level. Delay, dmg, and Dex+1 over the Greataxe or GA+1. It might cost a little bit, but this axe will last you a long time. Easily long enough to farm up the gil for a Neckchopper.

One thing ive tend to notice about most players. Advice = Insult.

I had this same discussion with a linkshell bard today who was telling me how he was in a party with a bard as his blm, at level 55. He said he had great equipment, but he had no idea how to use it properly. The bard was doing ballad with a +1 string instrument and hit everyone, and tried to give buffs to the melee with a regular wind instrument... not knowing it wouldn't overwrite the ballad cause its +1 instrument and the other is not (i had no idea it worked this way myself, i never played bard, **** for all i know my friend could be wrong. I know melee and skillschains, support (no thanks))

So my friend tells him he should try to get ballad on the mages only. The guy freaks out and starts getting bad but eventually takes the advice. My friend then tells him how +1 weapons won't be overrided by normal... he FLIPS, leaves the party.

Its getting to the point where its just too much of a hassle to even try and help people anymore. They take it as an insult instead of just advice from somone who wants them to do better then they are.

Hey guys,

You need to take me off the list for Quetzalcoatl. I quit FFXI, so it won't do much good to keep my name up there.

Just want to post that I gave away and successfully convderted someone to a g axe tonight. I saw a lvl 5 newbie walking around with a polearm, and I politely explained to him the benefits of using an axe on a warrior, and gave him a butterfly axe, then using madrigal I helped him speed level his g axe to cap so he could compare it to his polearm :p

After he got it capped, he was pretty impressed with the g axe over his polearm, so I made at least one person change for the better :p

I am also using the Bee Spatha +1. The damage on the sword is better than any GA at level 12 . I believe it is 14 damage, and no GA will for the same damage in the amount of time. Some GA's have same damage but a longer delay (enough to make a difference).

I basically am switching back and forth from GA to Sword, whichever does the best damage in the shortest amount of time.

Is it worth it to forfeit a small delay discrepancy to keep GA level maxxed?

Where Great axe does the most damage depends on what you're fighting. if you're fighting High defense enemys, like crabs in valkurm, the axe will crush the sword. On low defense enemys, low delay weapons will do better. Why not use an axe instead of a sword though? Higher damage, almost the exact same delay, higher skill, and better weapon skills. You can switch between axe and g axe to keep both capped and also use whichever has better results.

An example is when I started xping in Kuftal Tunnel at lvl 51 with my war friend. He has nin and thief subs both fully leveled, and axe and g axe both capped. When we first went in, the crabs were giving more than 200 each, even before the xp chain and had very high defense, so he used a thief sub and relied on his g axe, and was doing 70-90 damage regular hits and 400+ damage sturmwinds, as compared to 20-30 damage axe hits. At 53 though (the next night) their defense was lower now due to us being a higher level, so he went back as a war/nin, and was hitting 40-50 damage axe swings while still only doing 70-90 damage gaxe hits.

You just have to pick the situation accordingly. This is why warrior is so versatile. We're good with both a high damage high delay item, and a low delay, lower damage item, while other dd (samurai, dark knight or dragoon) have to rely on the slow weapons since thats all they're good at.

the best axe you can use at 16 is the moth axe herro. contact dimo on bahamut if you cant afford an axe, and when he asks why you want him to buy you a moth axe, tell him if he does what you want, alex will buy him dinner. he cant resist the offer of free food.

unless of course benadar or someone already got you, then dont worry about :)P

Add Gelwain to the list. I've taken my war/thf up to 51 with a great axe, and absolutely love that large, hulking lump of serrated steel. Sneak attack + Beserk + Aggressor + Warcry + Sturmwind = Yes, please.

To spread the joy of the Great Axe to aspiring warriors as a noble quest, indeed, and one this Dragoon is willing to take up.

I'm on the Hades server and will happily whip out my job and my gear, and give demonstrations to show the power that is the Great Axe.

To the person who sent a /tell to Vaala on Fairy last night.

I didn't mean to offend you at all, I really didn't, and am happy to participate in this GreatAxe Challenge. But this offer does cap out when you reach level 20, otherwise things start getting incredibly expensive for us.

As far as my comment about getting a bit personal in your questions and you saying this is just a game? Yeah...it is just a game, but at the same time, I do like to keep my anonymity a bit and certain things such as how much gil I have really doesn't matter. I don't have a problem telling that to my friends, but when you start asking if I'm a girl and how old I am and how much gil I have right away, I take that as a bit intrusive. Sorry if that offended you, but just as it's a bit rude to ask a stranger how much they make in real life, asking in game is something similar.

Anyway, I'm sorry you were above the level for this event, or I would happily support you and get you a GreatAxe. Anyone other new Warriors who are truly interested in trying a GreatAxe to be the best Warrior they want to be, please feel free to send me a /tell. I'm more than happy to help out :)
