Warriors, I need your feedback/suggestions!Follow

The Puppetmaster forums has a nice little discussion going regarding a recent 1UP interview with one of the FFXI Developers.

Here's the quote.

Quote:
1UP: Over the last couple of years, you've done a great job adding Blue Mage-specific swords and whatnot, keeping the BLU community satisfied as a result. But where are the Puppetmaster-specific hand-to-hand weapons, and the Dancer-specific daggers?

KO: The development team is looking into this as we speak. In the near future, we think we will be able to deliver something that fans will appreciate!


Based on the above quote, I had come up with a theory: The reward for completing the next mini-expansion "A Shantotto Ascension" will be Job Specific augmentable weapons.

Knowing SquareEnix and their love of time sinks, I think there will be 20 weapons in all for each job currently available in FFXI. In order to obtain another JSE weapon, you must restart the Shantotto scenario and upon completion, choose a different weapon as your reward.

So, what I would like from the Warriors is....what kind of BASE stats would you like on a JSE WAR Great Axe (prior to the two augments added on)

Here's what I have in mind currently.

Warrior's Bhuj
DMG: 92, Delay: 504
STR +7, DEX +5
Enhances "Aggressor" effect
Lv. 72 WAR

Any/All feedback from the WAR Community will be greatly appreciated! Once I get enough feedback from you all as well as the posted on the other job forums, I will be making a final post in the FFXI Feedback section of the boards in the hopes of the SquareEnix Community noticing it and taking it into consideration for implementation.

Thank you, Warriors!

Augmentable as in like the armor? If that is the case, then it boils down to what weapon they choose. Yes, chances are high that it'll be a great axe, but this is Square we're talking about. Remember? Start Warrior, you get a sword. Artifact weapon? A one handed axe. Guess this one would be easy to pick. If its a Great Axe, I'd go with the accuracy and the DA. It its one handed, then accuracy and DW.

Base stats, it'll probably be something in the lines of 2~5 STR 2~5 VIT, depending on the weapon itself. 94/50 base damage, hopefully 504/276 delay. And a unique model.

I doubt it will be a weapon.

Weapons are the main eq piece. Relic, Mythics.... things like blau, perdu, martial... They are simply too big of a part of the char to have one as a reward for something relatively simple.

If its weak, the expansion wont sell. If its too strong, they will have a mad playerbase.

If it isn't better than 96 DMG, 504 delay, ACC+5, ATK+10 I won't bother.

I have to agree with this.

Possibly a beer stein in the Ammo slot, for something like a Fire Bomblet sidegrade?

Oh put on your thinking hat and just let go. We know its going to suck, and we know the mission line to go with it is going to equally suck.

Damage 95, Attack+10, -5% damage taken, enmity+4, Augments "Retaliation" effect (now mitigates damage like counter).

I can dream, right?

Augments "Retaliation" effect to counter would be on some essential piece (like body) and have something retarded like ACC-10 & ATK-10 just for lolz (SEs has lolz too) so SE makes sure you realistically can't use it to deal more damage.

Nah, they'd put something else dumb on it instead. (Acc-10/Atk-10 isn't going to reduce your damage horribly. Slow+10%, however...)

I would just like a unique model to be honest.

Really want to start gathering good town gear for my war.

My #2 on Einherjar wishlist is Valhalla helm for this reason. Puts me at undisputed first lot I think. As long as I have 40 points to blow.

OK i know i mocked the speculation aspect of this, but a retaliation weapon/armor piece would be awesome. It wouldn't break us for group things, and slightly upping our power in solo/lowman stuff wouldn't be too broken either.

retaliation boost like that would pretty much make war/sam the tank in merits.
