    I think that's both in and out of perspective. Nidhogg and Co. were created when much less equipment existed and most of the equipment that did exist was overtly awful.

    Moving back and back in time towards Rise of the Zilart, the list of useful stuff from Nidhogg and Co. expands a bit. Also, so much of the equipment was so awful back then that getting the best or second-best piece could mean no longer needing to use a piece of equipment that rightly should never have existed.

    Right now, Legion is relatively new and its equipment is as relevant on paper as it will ever be. The crafted sets from Legion will probably become easier to craft, but that won't make them any better.

    Although, I imagine already having so much equipment that isn't cat-poop-on-fire-shaped-into-the-likeness-of-your-dead-fiance makes it much harder to add equipment that people find appealing. So, maybe there's a Catch-22 here and Legion is roughly as rewarding as the average modern event can be, after all?

    Also, sorry, but I couldn't resist...

    That's pretty much what I'm going for. Given that these options exist and we can't have events justified by the horridness of alternatives anymore, Legion is approximately as rewarding as a level 75 event was just before the level cap increase, when there existed a lot of 70-75 armor.

    Many Samurais did Salvage purely for Usukane feet and body. Compared to that level of effort, Legion isn't bad.

    For WAR, Legion offers Kumarbi's Akar (Regen set) and C.Feet. It is also the major source of Ormolu ingots and the only source of Honors.
    BWAHAHAHAHAHA

    HAHAHAHAHAHA

    Sorry had to get that out.

    There are some decent upgrades for mages, but the vast majority of the gear is 1~2% improvement at best, if it even has improvement. Legion is mostly for people to say their doing something rather then spamming the same old content.

    Apoc with both Catastrophe and Entropy gives you crazy sustain of both HP and MP. With the Haste aftermath you can wear a ton of -PDT and solo almost any 75 content.
    Doing damage is for WAR's, DRK is about soloing 75 content yo.....

    For my WAR:

    5 from Dynamis (Ragnarok included)
    9 from AH
    15 from Abyssea (Ukon and augmented items included)
    12 from Voidwatch (9 buyable if you include bodies)
    0 from meeble (but some day 1)
    0 from artifact
    1 from walk of echoes
    2 from Legion
    1 from Sky
    4 from neo nyzul
    4 from sea
    1 from limbus
    1 from campaign
    2 mission reward (Moonshade and Rajas)
    1 that I apparently didn't count anywhere because this only adds to 58 and I have 59 items in my inventory


    I'm using a pretty minimal set at the moment because I'm just out testing, but these are the basics.

    Sums up pretty much that they do everything wrong. 3 years after abyssea gear is still relevant.

    Well, more like 2 years, but you have to remember that most of the crap we used before Abyssea was ~5 years old. Gear turnover in this game is very slow, which is what used to make it seem worthwhile to farm for slight upgrades. Now people look at small increases in performance through gear and basically blow it off because something good is going to come out in a year that outdates it.

    I don't agree, in the gear I listed you still find level 75 stuff that I kept

    4+ items come from AH (mostly bcnm or crafted stuff) including .. an earth staff
    3 from salvage
    4 from artifact
    1 from sky
    2 from hnms
    3 from sea/limbus
    1 random from imperial standing rank

    They failed to replace basic gear. Those gear include stuff like rajas/brutal earring, sea gorget, black belt, defending ring,
    basic AF, a boomerang, byakko... There are rooms for upgrade to these items but they just don't want too and prefer introducing downgrades for melee or WS gear. They have no clear vision of "items upgrade" either as many meeble items beat other options too when you would think harder content should be better, but no !

    They advertised legion as hard with super awesome abjurations (DA+2 on gloves guys !). It's not the case, but many people think they do. They also made several post at one point and basically told us that arise and meteor dropped from legion (which we didn't see lol). I mean I think it's the first time they have actually given such contribution to an event by explaining what it drops. And now this thread. They are quite desperate I would say.
