Alright since I am a part of the Methylossyndicate and have been for pretty much the whole time its been around I've known pretty much everything that goes on at all times espcecailly since Methylos is my RL brother. Yes i've known him for all 19 years of my life and have seen the good and bad sides of him. But as a person and a leader Methy is one of the most intelligent and selfless people i've ever known. He has always been the type of person in game to go out of his way to help others in the linkshell and even some outside of our linkshell in more ways then one.
Now on to the actual issue here as to weather or not eviljoel or methylos is correct on the issue of the garrison. For one i've played as a Pld/War in every garrison but a few. I've done whitemage 2 times and war/mnk a few times before i unlocked pld. I've done prolly 30 garrisons with methy over time this game has been out. that being said every garrison that i've done with him have had specific requirements for each individual to abide by, and none of them unfair or dishonest. There has been very few changes to the garrisions that he has done. 1 being the way he kites the monsters which has become more and more successfull over the years we have been doing them. and 2 is instead of being a full alliance we now only use 2 full parties. as for war/nin in the garrison over war/mnk its pretty much pointless in my eyes. for one the stats of nin are horrible at lvl 10 and dual weilding axes kinda sucks over a GreatAxe. that being said HunterGamma stated this
"Wow lvl20 Garrison.....the only thing NIN sj would give you would be the ability to equip 2 axes or sword. Which would yeild less damage then 1 GAX.
MNK sj gives you a bit more HP, VIT, Counter(OMG COUNTERING WITH A 500 DELAY WEAPON IS AWESOME), and well makes so much more sense.
Everytime I see a WAR/NIN tanking mandys in the jungles outside of kazham, I die a little. When I took WAR thru there, went WAR/MNK, Axe and shield, high VIT/DEF combo with fishkabobs(before food patch). Mandys hit me for around 10 damage a punch, and Boost gives about 1/3 the hate of provoke, and you can use it every 15 seconds."
I refuse to let any NIN in the jungle be a main tank for 2 reasons 1. is its a big waste of money to keep using utsesumi or how ever the @#%^ you spell it because they blow through your shadows faster than a galka through a cake and 2nd is your defense sucks more than getting beatin to an NM claim only to have the @#%^ call for help . That being said War/NIN at lvl 20 garrison is useless because you dont even get utsesumi . therein lies the problem with eviljoels arguement. and finally to finish off my rant about how eviljoel is wrong here
So in my time as a player on here ive been in a lot of linkshells. Some good some not so good. The most recent one was methylosyndicate and i have some things to say about it. I joined it and at first like all small linkshells they were eager to getmembers in. I recruited a lot om members from my formal linkshell that we wernt ging in the same direction. We did garrisons and we did well, but a few weeks later i started to notice some problems.
Our leader Methylos started to go on a power trip i mean micromanagement out the wazu he literally made the game not fun. Not announcing any formal changes he starts to make rules for garrison stupid ones i may add. Like not being allowed to sub nin for dual weild in garry although war/nin is a PROVEN 20 garrison combo. On the other hand he is a hypocrite. He is allowed to use job combos that are not proven and if he failed oh well "I'm the leader you do what i say." Ok so hes is ignorant ,theyre noob bashers, and have affiliation with gil-sellers and disreputable people on the server. Im saying dont join it hes an elitest and he takes this "game" like its rl.
just look at the first line of his post "So in my time as a player on here i've been in a lot of linkshells." that alone says alot about a person
