So I got my first pc of Relic gear, Bard Relic Hands, last night at dyna bastok. Ive been goin over the stats and cant seem to find a good reason to wear these gloves, other than maybe to macro in for an evasion set up?

Are these a show pc or am i missing something important?

Show piece.

although an argument could be made for inventory purposes that storing 5 pieces of AF and using very marginally worse gloves is ok.

also there is no such thing as an evasion setup on brd..........


You could use it to super tank mammets on the airship. It'd be awesome.

You have to do that amount of work no matter what. You might as well do it sooner and benefit from the NQ.

actually, with my current gear 2 skill does absolutely nothing for me. i'd need 4 more skill to hit next tier for march, and 7 for madrigal. at the moment, it's not worth any amount of effort at all >o

Congrats on your first relic.

Fail. You question whether you should even wear your relic, and yet you don't even have your AF. Then what _ARE_ you wearing? There is more than just a 2 skill difference between the relic and AF -- the AF gives you an extra 4 charisma over the relic.

Different person there >_>

I would assume Sha'ir if not wearing AF or Relic. I mean, AF is still better, since it's nearly the same CHR, plus skill to boot, so better offensively if nothing else...but it's not like Sha'ir is terrible.

They're used for storing the set when you're not playing BRD. Additionally, your Moogle uses them to take pies out of the oven.

...but sometimes people would rather get to 75 asap, rather than get their af while leveling, and then once they get 75, the nq af might not serve any purpose at all...
I have yet to meet the person who fails to take pride in their job on the way to 75, who takes pride in the job at 75.

#14ThePsychoticOne, Assassin Reject, Posted: Dec 20 2008 at 11:29 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) well, now you have. i gear my brd pretty well, and i do my best to play it well. however i simply don't see much point in farming up a key for something that doesn't increase my buffs at all, and that i wouldn't use for my debuffs in any of the things i currently use brd for. when the time comes that they would be useful for something, other than inventory -1, then i'll get them.
