Game Lore wise, it makes absolutely no sense for Rune Fencer, the master of the great sword, to be able to use less "ultimate" great swords than Paladin, a job that can merely use Great Swords.

    Secondly, I would not say that Ergons are "difficult" to get. They are highly time consuming, obnoxiously expensive (moreso than Mythics and Relics, not sure about Empyreans), and have a lot of requirements. And I do not accept that I should need it to play the job the way it was meant to be played. If you say that about AF/Relic/Emp armor, then I can accept that it. But when these weapons become the expected norm and you can't reach that norm without it, it's bad game design.

    Finally, I have one more issue, that maybe I am wrong about. Were Blue Mages, Corsairs, and Puppetmasters represented by the Hydra Corps? Granted they are not on relic weapons, but they do have relic equipment that drops there. I also don't think there were any Dancer or Scholar weapons stored in the Aht Urgan treasure vault, but again, I may be mistaken. If I'm wrong, then no harm done. But if I'm right, then there is an enormous break from precedent to have done that for those jobs but not for RUN and GEO.
    As far as rmes go they haven't retroactively added anyone to them so it's not like it's a new thing. It's just the newest jobs get hit the hardest. That said if they are really going for the ergon is equivalent to mythic they should have gone with the full bit. Ie all the generic stats that mythics ergons should as well... ie give us the hidden ws boost!

    They weren't in the hydra corps as far as I know which is probably a part of why they didn't do the weapons. Those were fairly lore specific ultimate pieces for them. But those jobs did exist in the past so it wouldn't be too much of a stretch for armor.

    As far mythics I don't think those and the stories behind them were added until dnc and sch came out and I don't think a full listing was came out before then so it's not like they had to change it. I believe this was the first announcement on it
