Relic weapons, if you’ve never heard of them, costs incredible amounts of gil, time and effort of many people to upgrade. Nevertheless, it’s a good long-term goal to have, which I believe is what’s keeping me playing till now.
Firstly, I like PLD.
To be honest, I levelled PLD for 2 reasons.
1) Merits, lol. Because DRK isn’t a job people would invite for merits often.
2) PLD friends who quit FFXI.
But lately, as I levelled PLD to 75, I like it as much as I like DRK. Like DRK, both require you to be alert and pay lots of attention.
Heh, although NIN takes a lot less damage than a PLD in a merit/exp PT, correct me if I’m wrong but I feel a NIN cannot handle links as well as a PLD. Or maybe I just have very good support members in my PT to sleep the links.
My last merit PT, we had 4 spiders and 2 mamools to deal with at once. It was very exciting. I love it when there’s links. :D
PLD in dynamis is very boring when you’re in the sleepga PT. The PT which keeps all the links slept. PLDs are supposed to voke the mobs to keep the hate off the BLM or BRD who sleeps the links.
So yea, I like PLD and I want to experience tanking more end-game monsters.
Stuff like killing Jormungand with 6 people has motivated and inspired me a lot. But here’s the thing, the PLD in that 6 man party possesses Aegis. Fully upgraded relic shield.
So here’s my dilemma. I feel I can only afford to upgrade 1 relic item. I want to get Ragnarok for my DRK to perform well at end-game and on the other hand, I want Aegis to help me tank end-game monsters.
