Hands are cool for lolmeleeRDM too, finally enough DEX on a piece to make CDC actually seem less horribly geared on RDM.

So far as the boots go... I wonder how much of a % potency increase "Enhances enfeebling magic effect" gives.

No more "bad" than red mage melee is anyway, so doubt anyone planning to melee on red mage cares.

The thing that disturbs me most is that SE clearly isn't even trying anymore to come up with names for things... Uk'uxkaj? Really? That's pretty Fahkin'Ghey.

Well first off, Almace is not good, no, but once the RME99 update comes, or at least the Coin weapon update, CDC will be on available on all swords, which means it will easily be the best WS for RDM. Besides that, Almace 99 itself might not be to horrible either, which means it could be viable for that reason as well, even though Excalibur will almost assuredly beat out Almace still. So far as RDMs not caring, I care quite a bit, its finally new melee gear, something which RDM rarely sees in my opinion. In either case, this gear is over all a very nice change for RDM, and thankfully I waited till after this update to do my Magic Acc staves, since I am guessing that club is from one of the new WKs... Its time to get Reiving.

I don't see how CDC is the best WS for RDM when it requires a ton of attack and dex to be good. Even with those new pieces, RDM still suffers from a lack of gear to support CDC as well as a lack of gear for CDC that has other practical uses. Unless its a specifically magic resistant mob or you somehow manage to squeeze all your various casting sets into 70 or so slots (which is do-able), Requiescat is still probably your best option.

The real power of Almace for RDM was always the aftermath.

I think they are trying to think of names, they are just struggling to succeed at coming up with pronounceable ones. I mean they pick things that are words, or close to words, as names for things, the problem is that we have no earthly idea what they mean or how to say the most of the time.

Fea's Cuffs aren't bad for RDM CDC either.

I am simply going by the spreadsheet when I say RDM will be using CDC. Before now CDC would beat out Req & KoR on Excalibur, and using Almace instead of Excalibur it was only slightly behind at 99. This update gave RDM a Hat with 20STR & 20DEX, our old best was Maat's Cap or the Add-on head with certain augments. Besides that they gave us these hands, our old best hands were Fea's, 7STR & 7DEX, these have 9STR & 31DEX. While it can be said that the head has 24MND and the hands have 26MND to help Req, as I said before, CDC would win right now if you could use it with Excalibur on RDM. So after the update that lets us use CDC with any weapon, it should be on top even without these, but with them, its just getting better. Besides that, these are awesome TP hands for RDM as well, nice STR, tons of DEX, and 20 Accuracy which helps with our hitting issues, so in the end, amazing gear came out way this time.

ws with more favorable mod considering you'd be carrying a ton of mnd gear already was the point. survival has always been the advantage for rdm and a more optimized cure, fastcast, enhancing, and dt setup does more for the inventory space than the marginal damage increase from cdc.

No... Don't give them that... You're only enabling them.

They're getting back into that random sounds and syllables separated by apostrophes lack of thought process like when they named every monster in sea... Those were dark days...

Fkuj'haura... You like that? I just named a new piece of armor... It's an alternate spelling of a Swahili word that roughly translates to "I just made this sh*t up."

Uk'ux Kaj means roughly "Heart of the Sky" in Mayan. I'd wager most of the new items are the same given their looks and how we all know SE is very well versed in other languages and lore when they come up with names for stuff in their games.

No .. just no.

CDC is the better WS, assuming all things are equal. The bigger your weapons base DMG is the better CDC gets and the lower your cRatio is, the better CDC gets.

5.25 fTP, 60% DEX, crits (+15% @100)

7.2 fTP, 100% MND, -20% attack

CDC wins easily, the AM effect is just icing that further push's it up. Only RDM's utter lack of amazing DEX pieces allowed the excal + Req combo to pull slightly ahead.

I also play BLU and have access to a 99 Almace and Req @5/5. Prior to SoA weapons blowing that Almace apart in DPS, CDC easily won on anything without PDT resistances.

Reread my post, I didn't say anything about requiescat being superior for damage. CDC does slightly better damage but requires a nearly complete WS set, whereas requiescat uses mostly pieces you'd already be carrying. I said requiescat is probably still your best bet because that inventory space would be more effectively used for survivablity gear. I even said that RDM melee has never been about raw damage.

If melee RDM was about DPS, you'd go BLU anyway.

You'll be using a full TP and WS gear set in either situation, you will not be WSing in mage gear with Req.

*Note*
Viability of melee RDM not withstanding. Currently the job's melee component is only viable when your off with friends screwing around on old stuff.

CDC is not the best WS for RDM because it cannot be used with Buramen'kah, otherwise it is the best general-purpose WS for any job that wants to use a sword and can use the WS.

*Cough*

Actually read the thread before attempting to snipe.

This was in the context of after the RMEC update where they allowed Emp WS's to be used by any weapons.

Now you may continue failing.

I was basically agreeing with you, but you can argue with me because you feel like it if you want to.

Edit: perhaps if you read it as "the only reason CDC isn't the best for RDM is because you can't use it on a modern ("item level") weapon" it'll make sense to your stubborn head.

Welcome to the RDM Forum!

Where everyone talks about rdm meleeing and the points dont matter.

On topic, please post findings of "enhances enfeebling effect"!

Sav, you really need to learn to read instead of attacking people.

I guess suddenly things like Hedera Cotehardie, Rubeus Spats, Morrigan's Robe, Aquasoul Rings, etc, are not mage gear but Maat's Cap is.

I cited that the main issue with CDC is the inventory space and lack of gear with other uses.

The only thing I never said blatantly was that CDC does more damage than Requiescat assuming comperable weapons. Which means nothing because there aren't comperable weapons.
