I'm returning after about an 8 month break from the game (yes, another thread about a returning player), and I want to get back into BRD. I just had a few questions.
The main thing I'm worried about is gear. I don't really have any uber rare/ex equipment right now (just my old old regular AF). Mainly, I wanted to get back into exp'ing, and then work towards getting the more hard-to-get gear after reaching 90. What's the standard gear and gearsets these days for BRD in exp? I know it's all abyssea now 75+, so I just didn't know if AF and gear from the AH (sha'ir? demon helm?) would cut it anymore, at least til 90 and I can start working on the new r/e gear.
Also, I know there's a thread about it and I did read through it, but I just wanted to get a definite answer on BRD pulling in abyssea. Is pulling expected these days in abyssea like it was for the old merit pts on birds, etc.? I did a /sea on brds today, and basically all of them are /whm now. Do we just play our songs and backup cure now, like the old days? Or do we pull with /whm now instead of /nin? If we're expected to pull, that is.
Thanks for your time!
