    The beauty of FFXI is that the majority of players don't just play 1 type of job. I'll happily help out in a lvl 99 DM fight as a mage to get a weapon for one of my melee jobs, and I'm certain I'm not the only one! (but you could always add Meteor and Arise to the drops^^)

    The cutscenes are awesome and all, but I've yet to see what is so epic about:

    1) AoE damage spam fest
    2) AoE status effects
    3) Mijin Gakure wiping you
    4) LOLSpirits Within one-shotting you
    5) A geared PLD running around like a pansy with an earth staff on his back while kiting the non-kill targets

    That's what Divine Might was at 75. Why do we want to go through that, again?

    PS: On Camate's post, I shouldn't be surprised that the devs want to make more inventory -1 gear. Oh well. I guess I'll go back to asking for costume slots via another method.

    * The sad thing is that FFXIV turned RDM into a turret, and people think that's what it's supposed to be. It's supposed to combine sword and magic into something more, not spend the bulk of gameplay spamming spells and jump into melee for only 3 GCDs before scurrying back to the back line.

    Because a super tank running in circles or 18 BLMs was so much more engaging and complex--oh wait, they weren't.

    If the devs redesigned divine might as a real encounter that didn't involve circumventing the fight's design, then I could get behind that. AoE status effects screw over melee, so yes, those have to go, as that was a contributing factor to people using 18 BLMs. Damage needs to be toned down so you can afford to have more than one tank in the group without also requiring an overwhelming number of healers. Each AA should gain a buff if they're in proximity to one another to encourage the group to separate them, have one require a sword&board tank, one require a Two-hander job to tank it and one require a ranged tank. That's just for starters, mind you.

    not sure if it's been suggested before, but what about the AA "intro emotes" instead of costume enchantment ?

    The next reason being that the armor was created to match the Archangel’s white skin and if a player were to equip it there would be quite a lot of strangeness.
    Dearest Camate,

    Retexturing the armor isn't as tough as it seems. For example:



    That took about 20 minutes, and part of that time was redoing the pants so that they showed a little skin like Warrior's/Fighter's Cuisses. (For those who don't know, AA-Hume's armor is reskinned Warrior Artifact/Relic Armor.) I may go back and work on the pants a little more, the edge is a little rougher than it could be. But honestly though, it would probably take less than a day of work for a real graphic artist to port all except AA-Tarutaru's armor to all races. (Ports from Taru versions are generally tougher to do since Taru armor textures are shrunk compared to other races.

    With that said, however, when I saw that picture I thought, "I don't want to see that diluted by seeing everyone and their grandma wearing it." The best argument against making AA Gear available is that it would take away the specialness of the gear itself.

    Cool Idea, but sad that AA EV Shield is getting scrapped, being it is one of the most iconic weapons from that fight. (also partial to it because I've made one and would like to have one in game) Maybe later down the line it can be re-worked into a augmentable / magian armor. fingers crossed!
