I'm at my wits' end here. I've been trying to upgrade my AG Verethragna with Oboro. I'm on MNK (it's mastered), and I've completed Masamune over a year ago, took me 4 months to get 10,000 JP's.

I thought this meant I could upgrade any other empy-weapons. I speak to him on the mastered job, with the weapon equipped he just repeats the same like of dialogue.

"Bring me what I need, it's not materials but something near and dear to your heart and soul. Blah blah blah"

I try trading him a single Astral Detritus. Nothing happens...
I trade the verethragna with the Astral Detritus. Nothing happens...
I trade just the weapon. Nothing.
I change to PUP (also mastered). Try everything I tried above. Nada.

I gotta be retarded or something. What am I doing wrong?
BGWiki:

Step 2: REME "119 III" Stage Upgrade
Note: The Key Item:"Scintillating Rhapsody" Key Item, obtained from the final Rhapsodies of Vana'diel Mission, must be obtained first in order to begin the process.

EDIT:

Step 2: REME "119 III" Stage Upgrade
Note: The Key Item:"Scintillating Rhapsody" Key Item, obtained from the final Rhapsodies of Vana'diel Mission, must be obtained first in order to begin the process.

Trade the iLevel 119 weapon to Oboro to begin.
Multiple weapons can not be reforged at once, unless the current one is either completed or abandoned.
The process may be abandoned at any time, but any materials you have traded will not be returned.
Trade the required items to Oboro:
Pluton icon.png Pluton x10,000 are required for Relic Weapons 119 "I" variants.
Afterglow variants (119 II) only require 1.
Riftborn Boulder icon.png Riftborn Boulder x10,000 are required for Empyrean Weapons 119 "I" variants.
Afterglow variants (119 II) only require 1.
Beitetsu icon.png Beitetsu x10,000 are required for Mythic Weapons and Ergon Weapons 119 "I" variants.
Afterglow variants (119 II) only require 1.
Trade the iLevel 119 weapon to Oboro again after trading the required amount of stones.
After one game day, he will provide you with the completed final form (iLevel 119 III) weapon.
Note: Aeonic Weapons start in the "119 III" level, making this step unnecessary to fully upgrade them.

Is your weapon at the correct stage in the process?

What formula?

DA = 1+1
TA = 1+2
QA = 1+3

?

You need to throw STP on this relation too, as last i remember 1 STP > 1 DA. If dual 2ielding, most like DW, if not capped, will pull ahead many multiattack.

What i used to compare is not a given formula but spreadsheet and varying gear as even multi attacks are subject to diminish returns and hierarchy.

As a quick rule, DA adds one Extra hit, TA will add 2 extra hits, so, simplified rule, i would consider 1 TA equal to 2 DA.

You can probably see what I'm trying to do here, but I can't exactly get it to work. I'm not a good script kiddie as I'm self-taught and only use this kind of thing in extreme cases as I like to play close to vanilla. I want to have a macro for a mount and then have it play music via the setbgm addon.

Any idea how this /should/ look to work or if it's possible?

Thank you in advance for any help you offer.

So far this is what I've made and it gets me on my mount, but doesn't play the music.



Edit: Thank you to the person that helped me via private message on here. This is what ended up working:

So a general question related to some of the armor acquired through Ambuscade.

I don't see many of the +2 pieces listed as must-have endgame attire in various equipment guides, but I do see them occasionally in the mid-tier suggestions. Of the 50 different pieces available to upgrade, which ones would you say would fall in the "Top 10" category? I know a lot of that is going to be situational and dependent on the job, but I'm primarily looking for stuff that isn't going to immediately be overpowered by something easy to obtain like 119 AF+1.

Ambu +2 armor is definitely HIGHLY dependent on job and what you want to do with it. But if I had to pick 5 pieces without knowing jobs/use cases, some of the strongest standouts of all of the Ambuscade armors are:

1) Flamma head
2) Sulevia feet
3) Meghanada hands
4) Sulevia hands
5) Jhakri body

More specific suggestions for highlights by set below; these all hold up as best-in-slot gear or close (like, 2nd-3rd place option for the slot) for certain situations:

Sulevia:
(1) Hands are very solid offense with strong DA/Acc/Atk, plus DT-5% - a staple for any defensive/hybrid sets.
(2) Feet give WSD+7% and are BiS (barring like, amazing Dark Matter augmented gear) for many WS.

Hizamaru: nothing is a must, but...
(1) legs are maybe the highlight of the set with WSD+7% and good STR - they remain a top 2~3 option (though SAM NIN are the main jobs on the set that may care about WSD, and they get AF+3/Relic+3 legs with WSD+10%).
(2) I still use the body when idle/not fighting on all 4 jobs on the set, for the massive regen (+12/tick). Luxury piece, but may never be beaten for that niche purpose.

Inyanga:
(1) Legs are a must for BRDs.
(2) Whole set is very nice idle Meva gear, I make good use of it on WHM BRD.
(3) Whole set also provides pretty strong WHM BRD Macc options (though can be beaten with some stuff like AF+3 pieces, Chironic hose, etc.)

Meghanada:
(1) WSD+7% hands are still BiS for many WS.
(2) The whole set is very strong for all-around ranged use on RNG or COR (including a best in slot preshot piece with Snapshot+10 feet, and a great RNG crit head).

Jhakri:
(1) Refresh+4 body is a must for all jobs on it.
(2) BLU makes very good use of the set for magical nukes (pretty much no worse than a top-3 piece in every slot, only really losing to Relic+3 legs, HQ Amalric hands, very strong Herculean augments).

Flamma:
(1) Head is fantastic, still BiS for many offensive applications
(2) Feet are less amazing (they lose out to some options like WAR AF+3, SAM Kendatsuba+1 or maybe Ryuo+1), but still a very strong option.

Tali'ah: eh, not that amazing (some niche use like strong pet Macc for PUP, one of several good Pet:DT- PUP legs), but...
(1) Body is strong melee acc/TA gear (made a little less impressive for BST PUP when they got on Malignance)

Mummu: somewhat underwhelming, but:
(1) Solid crit gear for certain WS (Blade: Hi, Evisceration, Victory Smite) - particularly hands > feet > body
(2) Rather niche use, but I like hands for ranged crit sets (especially for Empy RNG or COR).

Ayanmo:
(1) In general, excellent melee mage gear for WHM BRD that also comes with some DT- to keep you safe - it's viable to use 5/5 for those jobs. RDM can use it too (and would def want hands for enspells), though RDM does have more options like Malignance set or Carmine +1 legs.
(2) Body can be used effectively in some hybrid builds for RUN (lacking the very hard to obtain Ashera Harness).

Mallquis:
(1) DT-8% body is very nice, great piece especially for those without Shamash Robe
(2) Whole set is pretty good for helixes and low tier nukes (not that low tier nukes are in a very good place in 2020)

Theres this thread which explains it all
MATH OAX, Multi-Attack, and You

in it, it has the following spreadsheet link that you can download, and play with the different 2x/3x/4x attack rates, to see which gives you the most, on average

My friend is freezing anytime they fish a few times. Their character stays frozen in the fishing position even past normal cast times for the fishing animation, just locked without moving. Is it a fastCS issue or something like that? Trying to look into what addons could be causing it.

It could be packet loss too. Does it consistently freeze? If so, start with //lua unloadall and load them one at a time.

You have to be wearing Mana Wall equipment (boots, cape) when you are hit in order to reduce the hit to your MP, not just during JA activation right?

Can you safely swap the gear in and out to keep the bonus for future hits? The FFXIclopedia says this:

Quote:
Must be worn when Mana Wall is activated and during its effect or the bonus will wear off (cannot regain bonus by putting the equipment back on).

...but I want to confirm.

So returning here and re-gearing up and a little confused about skill stats with caps. So if I have capped (blue skill) at say 414 but then Sword Skill +212 on my MH sword, does that do anything? Is it just for accuracy calc a that point? And is it additive to the blue cap, or does it do nothing because it doesn't change that number?

It's additive to the natural blue cap.

It gives attack, accuracy, and higher chance to interrupt enemy spells, but does not give you weapon skills sooner. It also only works in mainhand (so dual wielding 2 swords with +200 skill each will not give you +400).

What kind of gil amount are you looking at spending to upgrade an Emp or a Mythic weapon to the final stage (without glow), I'm guessing afterglow is mainly cosmetic? Asura prices.

330M for mythic and 210M for empy.

Add 135M for glow on myhic and 68M for empy.

Idk, i kinda feel like nowaday glowing is almost mandatory on some weapons, mainly those who dispense bullets (like gastraphetes and death penalty). For pure dps jobs, not glowing should have same feeling as rocking with empy lv85~90 back on abyssea era.

On jobs that rely only on unique trait on weapon, like nirvana and idris, glowing (non-augmented) is purely cosmetic.

But do notice you cant upgrade before glowing so a non-glowed 119 REM is 2-steps behind its max potential.

I was looking at the Magian Trials page for EMP and saw the final part was 3 thousand riftcinders, at 1 million each..

I guess that part is no longer necessary and you can skip it and do the oboro stuff, getting the glow that way far cheaper? Wish the wiki pages would note this stuff on the pages.

Is there a list of what Ambu weapons are worth making?

I already have the Sword and Dagger made, but I am wondering if there are any others that are good to get. I mostly play Rdm/Thf/Cor/Pup and currently am gearing up Drk if that helps for context.

Thanks!

Actually all (maybe beside great sword?) Ambu weapons are worth making, but if you have rema then many of ambu weapons are niche weapons for jobs that dont have rema in that category. For example great katana is very good for NIN, even if only for Ageha. Great axe is great for drk and run. H2H is great for war and also very good for thf and dnc etc.

If you dont have rema then all ambu weapons are also very good main weapons, so scythe for DRK, h2h for pup etc.

The question would be what order to make them.

You can do every weapon to Kaja level then store them at porter. As you need and as you get pulse weapons, you start changing to last stage.

Obviously, start upgrading for the the jobs you play and jobs that you dont have a REMA weapon.
