@7K to 75 T_T A party camped over us on birds last night when we were down to five, so we called it even though I'm so close I can taste it.

I'm meriting the very second I get on tonight.

Waiting for me are:
- Kirin's Osode
- Bard Cannions
- Loquacious Earring
- Rostrum Pumps

My bard gear will be nowhere near complete, but I'm 1/3 of the way to an Omega's Ring already with Einherjar, and expect to have it within the next two months. As soon as I win my Novio in my endgame shell (I'm 2nd in line atm), I'll put my name in for a Manteel ^^ We've gotten three cloths from Bahamut V2 now.

Pretty much the only other thing I need is an upgraded neckpiece, so I suppose it's time to start saving for some torques.

Relic feet are for a string build or if you're too poor to bother with anything else. :x Other than that, they're pretty much crappy.


I wear Suzaku's Sune-Ate along with Byakko's Haidate in merits rather than grabbing AF out of storage. It's not worth lugging around full time debuffing and buffing gear for me, since I mostly break out BRD for merits and not anything harder than that. Having sub-par gear in certain slots has nothing to do with being poor for some players.

It's because it's BRD and they'll be landing buffs on anything with pretty much just Terra's/Apollo's and decent +skill setup or forced to sub /BLM in which case it only makes sense to load up on the +CHR for Elemental Seal.

As long as they're not trying to say relic (or Suzaku's Sune-Ate, in my case) is a good piece of gear, does it really matter what they're wearing?

There's no reason not to wear something useful in a slot where every other option sucks. Even Dance Shoes would be better.

I do not promote or encourage the mindset of "well, all I do is merit on BRD, so it doesn't really matter what I wear." Yes, it does. For every well or decently-equipped BRD out there, there are 23987098 gimp ones who "only use it to merit."

It should probably be said that I absolutely hate when people level BRD just to merit and nothing else. Especially like the guy in my LS who hates the job, but levelled it just so he can merit... -.-

This is too true. And to add insult to injury, include all the other relic BRDs out there that have crap-for-gear. There are so many career-BRD's out there that deserve better, but the only ones who are ever noticed are the ones with g.horn.

Yes, we love our BRD's that can give extra ticks on ballads but not able to reliably sleep colibri during merits... /sarcasm

I forgot to equip an instrument and couldn't figure out why I couldn't get 2 songs up at the same time. DING!

Even better, I was like "WTF... I have my Monster Signa equipped, why isn't this working?".

Bahamut zerg really is fun, we've run it 5 times in the past 3 weeks. :)

Also had an Assassin's Jambiya drop from Assault, and nobody else wanted it. ^^

I got a tip from some LS members that Cwn Cyrff was up, and so we headed out there after Nyzul Isle on Sunday.

My BRD almost never melees, but this sword is just beautiful.

Big accomplishment for me. I've always wanted a Vcloak for my BRD.
