    Geomancer and Rune Fencer Artifact Equipment

    As we mentioned previously, artifact armor for both geomancer and rune fencer will be implemented during the next version update.

    The plan is to release this new equipment for level 99 and I would like to explain why the development team decided to do this.

    First, one reason is that Adoulin content is for level 99+ and as such the monsters in those areas are extremely high level, and trying to acquire level 50-60 gear in these areas just doesn't make sense.

    The other major reason is that most of you are looking forward to wearing these new artifact armors to do battle with the monsters that lurk in Adoulin areas, so the development team made the decision to implement them at the proper level in which they can be used.

    Item-level wise we are planning for these to be at least level 105, but as it is still in development, it may change.

    With that said, the quest difficulty will match the item-level, so you might feel a bit nostalgic having to organize parties to hunt down this gear, much like you all had to do back in the day for your first artifact sets.

    even though it kind of breaks with the rest of the AF, I do rather like this idea, making their storyline content relevant to the current game.

    Someone care to tell me what's wrong with a couple Yukes?

    So does this mean that GEO and RUN will not get Relic or Empyrean armors? Meaning that AF is the only set that they get, or will Relic and Emp be added in later on as well?

    If this is true, then why does every mage enfeeble the same as RDM?

    If the gear is as good as you say Camate I don't think we will have a problem doing this, but my only problem is what about Delve gear being better.

    Tell that to the TOAU & WOTG jobs, last I knew they had to run through areas infested with level 75ish Aggro mobs too, especially BLU, who had true sight Imps all over the place for their wonderful Staging points.

    Not that I am against this, just... I find that reason funny since other jobs have had to do it before, guess its time for me and my GF to catch up on levels though, we intentionally left RUN & GEO at level 40 just because of the AF weapon/gear. Speaking of which...

    Camate, any word on the AF Weapon itself? Will they have one like other jobs and if so what level should we be expecting?

    I see that working well for about a week. Then it'll be like all other dead content in this game where it's "just bring 17 of your best friends along for no rewards." Then the inevitable adjustments, and the whining about them because people did it "the hard way" back in the day and "why not just get 17 other people to help you. don't you have any friends?" arguments.

    I have to say I am disappointed in this decision. I purposely left my RUN at level 50 in the hopes of being able to level into the AF armor as I progressed. Sadly, this just reinforces the idea of "don't bother with anything levels 1-98".

    While I'm alright with this news I was holding my RUN at level 58 in hopes AF1 would be appropriate for that level. I was also hoping the stats might be % based so they'd scale with the job as the level went up. Having said all that, the reality is that 1 or 2 Abyssea parties would make that gear irrelevant, and for that I'm glad with the decision to make them relevant at level 99.
