Sooooo... I've got a few questions. I just logged in last night for the first time in years. To my surprise, speed belt is only 7m, I got that (will try for that new hq later on, looks like the only hq worth making...). Then I got dusk gloves +1 for hella cheap (theres a sweet joy in selling 5 for 20m each, then buying one for 200k) While looking through the AH and drooling, I saw some shout to sell abody (only 2m and nidd is poppable?!) I asked about ebody, he said he was going for it. So it got me wondering,is ebody w/ augs the best body piece? If it is, I'd buy a few pops to give it a shot or even level up smithing to make hq. I'm still 75 and a ton to learn, it seems like so much is different I don't know where to begin, what pieces are best to go after, I hear acc is almost useless now too..I'm hoping for some guidance from the mead hall in these aimless times. I'll probably go back to new pandy (asura, on rag rock atm).

I knew you couldn't stay away.

As far as I'm aware Ebody+1 with augs is the best body, yes.

I could be wrong, there though.

Check out this thread I made when I came back like 6 weeks ago.

Also you could join me on Sylph? :3

THANK YOU MEAD BEARER! EXACTLY WHAT I NEEDED! (ill bring the booze next time, one waiting for you in canada). Now I get why first timers never read older posts lol

I talked with an old friend on pandy, he gave me a lot of advice too. Has rag, ebody+1 and used my war spellcast script. I'm going to write him a Stella drk spellcast script for his help too. I'll post a link one I have war, blu and drk spellcasts done for the few of us -all 4 of us- who are nitty gritty with details with equipment swaps

I don't have much time to play these days with studying architecture. I have too much gil (dont like to buy unsellables like relic) so my main focus is to solo NMs with war, pushing the limits of my favourite job. I want to try tiamat eventually (ultimate war vs war standoff!), I don't think its been done before. but ill practice with jorm first lol.

How could I forget about your motherf*cking spellcast?! Definitely interested in an updated one. So share it here and stuff!

Although neither of you know me at all, I would very much have the interest in a solid war spellcast script.

Just thought I'd throw that out there?

Sure, I just need top test out my old spellcast script and make sure it works. I should probably change King's Justice to Ukko's Fury... And add in that new AOE WS as well.

Actually, Axciom, which two WS would you want to have specialized sets for? My original spellcast (old link in sig)) had 9 sets each for Engaged, Raging Rush and King's Justice. Raging Rush and Ukko's? Cleave? Is there any equipment you swap before Job Abilities? I've been out of the game for a long time, so I'm not too sure what new gear is available for Job Ability swaps. I had a Provoke set, AF2 head for Warcry, Virtue stone lock when Fortitude equiped, Tomahawk swap, Unicorn Leggings +1 latent swap, Curing Waltz swap, MDB swap (manual swap, I was really tired of dying to BLMs in Campaign), Campaign swap. Please let me know!

It's been a long time since you asked, but I just happened over here and thought I'd answer.

If you have an Ukon, Ideally you want Ukko's Fury, Fell Cleave, and Upheaval sets. Unlocking Resolution and having a good Greatsword is worth looking into also (Ragnarok or Jinjang are the popular options for WAR). From what I understand, in buffed situations, a 99 Ragnarok WAR spamming Resolution and a 99 Ukon WAR opening with 300% Ukko's and spamming Upheaval are unbeatable (except possibly by a 99 Ragnarok DRK).

Can't really see any benefit to getting Upheaval if you have an Ukonvasara and can use Ukko's, personally.

Morta and Legion mobs have a - critical rate trait that really fusses with Ukko's damage. If you don't have a ragnarok or a bravura to fall back on a 300tp ukko > Upheaval spam will probably win in those situations. If you do a lot of legion, and don't fell like making a Rag Upheaval might be nice.

I'll change it to Ukko's Fury and Upheaval, by default, but give the option in the variables to change the name to anything else. Though, I need to know what are common swaps for JAs? Off the top of my head I had AF2 mask for warcry, but I know there's a lot of augments and enhances on new gear I want to incorporate for the nitty gritty WARs. I still don't have WAR at 99 =X

I'm not sure about "common" gear swaps. Probably the AF2 mask is about it really.

The AF2+2 gear further enhanced would be some really good situational gear, though.

Warrior's Mufflers+2 - Can be further enhanced to be a Mighty Strikes gear swap to add 15 seconds to duration.

Warrior's Mask +2 can be further enhanced to give a 4 TP Bonus per merit level of Savagery.

Warrior's Cuisses +2 can be further enhanced to give +1% crit rate to Warrior's Charge per level.

Warrior's Calligae can be further enhanced to give 1% Spec. DEF reduction per merit (probably not worth it thinking about it.

The body can be enhanced to benefit Aggressive Aim, but no one merits Aggressive Aim.

I should get my AF2 out of storage...
