Maybe not everyone reads the English Localization section, but Eemeefu confirmed that there's a mistake in Rowena's dialogues and that we actually need 3 of each Seals instead of 1:
And here's a picture of me after obtaining all 9:
[No, actually, I don't have even 1 yet.]
Now... I remember Yoshida said that obtaining the relic weapons wouldn't have been something easy, so I would like to ask other adventurers:
Do you think doing the same content with the same Jobs again and again until you get a random drop is “hard”? Or more importantly, challenging?
Because, personally speaking, I've a different view of what a “challenge” is. I remember all the ones I had in the past while trying to reach faraway Aetherial Gates.
Since it seems the new direction of Final Fantasy XIV is that of the in my opinion pointless Speed Runs/AoE feast and general “Do this content again and again with the same Jobs to eventually get what you want.”, I just wanted to hear other adventurers' thoughts on it.
Ah, and always speaking about the Relic weapons, there's the “On the property of beastmen” item. That is something else. I'm “feeling” that I'm working to get it, getting Company Seals in many different ways, and finally I'm almost able to purchase it. I feel like I earned it and enjoyed it.
I, for one, prefer a system like this rather than just doing the same thing with the same Job over and over again. And this is said by an adventurer who likes Hamlet Defense... but only because I can play as a Disciple of the Land: we all know there's a “static” setup for this content, too, and of course if I'd want to play as a Monk... Heh, for Level 2 the party members wouldn't accept it, of course.
I talked about these concerns in other Topics, too:
- The Chimera, the Monk and the Guard
- Devs: Why do you insist on the "Not reward for you efforts" system?
What I'm asking for is for truly challenging contents that adventurers with not much time can also do, just taking them more (see the On the properties of beastmen example), and a revamp of this trend to advantage specific party setups for the fastest victory, therefore not encouraging adventurers to try out different Job combinations.
