    Doesn't mean they didn't exist. They should have kept the two paths separate, this current one only screws over previous AG users (which are in the vast minority so nobody cares about them sadly.)

Square-Enix wasn't going to simply just give people a hand out on Afterglow weapons. In fact, it could have been worse. It could have been 2,500 umbral marrows, 1,500 mulibar's scoria, or 600 riftdross/riftcinders needed.
    Just to correct you, it costs 60 Roiftdross/cinders to get to 99 and 3000 to get the afterglow so....it is worse.

    Thanks for the correction. Just now saw the mistake in the post. 3,000 is indeed alot worse on just the 99-2 path alone.

    Here's another annoyance: Once you start it, you're locked in. I wish I had known that before i started working on my Verethragna. I can't augment any of my JSE gear until I get another 9400 boulders.It'd be nice if you could do so, perhaps with another stone you're not using on your R/E/M.

    Such a task as this should have been put on its own NPC if the NPC isn't allowed to talk about anything else while you're on it. =\

    They ran out of ideas with the current staff they have. Give em a break, they re-used plutons/boulders/beits for a second time, and they re-used oboro. They clearly didn't have the five extra minutes it would've taken to make a second NPC next to Oboro.

    You can retrieve or augment the JSE weapons while doing the REM upgrade, I got a new JSE weapon and augmented it last week, while my mythic is still being worked on.

    But, you may not be able to use the same stone which is used to upgrade your REM

    I'll admit I was skeptical, because I tried everything to try and get him to accept my Aettir to upgrade while working on my Ryuno in the past, but I just went back to try again, and lo and behold it worked. Here's what I did:

    1) Talk to Oboro. Since he has my Ryunohige, his options were "Ask what the deal is" and "Nothing." If you select "Nothing", then he'll mention that he wouldn't be averse to augmenting other pieces of equipment at the same time.
    2) Talk to him and you'll see the list of JSE weapons, just as if you were trying to get him to make one. Go down to "About the weapons" and he'll explain that he will pause working on your RME to work on this weapon, though he won't return materials. This made me nervous, but it doesn't actually halt the RME process, so it's fine.
    3) Trade him your JSE weapon and a stone of your type (Boulders, Beitetsu, Plutons) and he'll accept it and mezzotint your weapon (i.e. prime it for augments) so that you can use that stone with the weapon.
    4) Trade him the JSE weapon and however many stones, and it'll get augmented.

    And I made sure it didn't mess with the RME process, because I traded a bunch of Beitetsu afterwards and it was immediately put towards my Ryuno, with the same count as before. So yay, we can do JSE and RME together.

    Well I came back again due to free week and its still 10000 plutons with no good way to get these. I had 47m gil on my character that isn't enough to buy them all. I could solo those ark angel fights but getting merits points to fight that takes a long time and the drop rate seemed about 1 in 10. Since they added new merits I should spend the merit points on those and nobody does stuff like abyssea anymore so getting merits is one huge pain now.

    It would be cool to finish the relic as one last hurrah but nothing has changed these are still very hard to get.
