Hey Guys.

I wanted to start a Relic Weapon. I am duoing every day with a friend as BST/DNC and BST/DNC. We get around 250-300 pieces a run and splitt it.

So my question is: What Weapon should i do?

I love to play NIN DNC THF BLU and PLD. These are my mains.

Was thinking of a Mandau but i hate DNC cant use it. Excalibur sounds cool but i am on Almace atm to and will finish it soon.

So What would you prefer to me?

I would suggest either NIN, THF or PLD (as DNC n BLU are void).
But wait! You yourself ruled out PLD as your working on Almace.
But wait!! You yourself also ruled out THF as you can't also use for DNC.

So surely that means..... NINJAR!


Seriously, your actually asking somebody else to decide this for you?

FYI since you have 99thf, you'd probably get more coins going bst/dnc and thf/dnc than going bst and bst

NIN - u got kannagi. Im not sure how well kikoku does dual wielding these 2 katana. Maybe read ninja forums and see what others say

DNC / THF - Dnc cant use mandau so twashtar may be better option for dnc and thf

BLU / PLD - almace u doing and blu cant use excal

PLD - aegis If you not building Ochain ? Even if you are doing ochain aegis can be a better option for some fights

Id recommend kikoku or aegis of jobs u like. Or as you using BST alot in dyna do guttler?

Maybe.
But We kill much faster with 2 x BST/DNC and using a TH pet. Or you think with THF main more currency per mob will drop?

For the jobs you have listed, Aegis pretty much for sure.
Kikoku if you wanna be a hardcore NIN :p

Guttler

Reason? Because I hear "I'm on BST every day"

I still despise BST almost as much as NIN ^_^

Twashtar - Atm with the current drop rate/price of plates won't go past lvl 90.

Almace - Read above.

Ochain/Aegis - if you do any of the old conted with this job well you sure need to change your play style , since any dd can do what pld does and even more with the support of a whm and proper gears( mule , friend , mercenary etc).

Kikoku - Lvl 85 Kannagi says Hi.

Guttler - Useless weapon for a useless job.

Excalibur - Great sword with a well geared pld but I made my point on the ochain/aegis step

Mandau - probably the only one worthing to make about those mentioned above same applies for apoc , youchi , annilathor, amano, Ghorn
and bravura too.

If you want to save yourself from the frustation of doing dynamis with 40 other people in the zone everyday sell your stuffs and go for something less frustating or farm gils and buy coins.
Make a relic just from dynamis requires time about 4-5 months getting 150ish coins/run and with 40 people to play against in a zone, I doubt you would make that much everytime.
This is frustanting , I did it I'm trying again, I'm giving up pretty fast, doing /sea at every hour of the day and see not a single zone with less than 20-50 players makes me skip dynamis for about half of the week.

Madau would be my choise if I were you, GL with whatever you're doing/making.

Personally Id choose aegis if I was doing. If you want to be paladin for Voidwatch (the only time I play PLD) then you pretty much need aegis or ochain. Not saying its always a requirement to do job but people will always choose the aegis ochain over seigneur shield paladin for obvious reasons.

There also may be better options offhand for kannagi nin

kamone (think best in abyssea still with 10% crit hit damage bonus)
hochomasamune
magian (agi str)
multi hit katana

Im not a main nin so Ive not researched best options but empyrean + relic is not necessarily best option

Or! Why not sell the currency,buy some alex or something and make the DNC or BLU mythic (or one of the other job's nythics)

shield. cuz w/ the the lv99 and -50MDT in gear, you literally take 0 dmg from magic. thats soooo broken. if/when they come out with difficult mobs again that spam deadly magic, you'll be a highly demanded pld.
