    thought you could only spend so many points in certain categories, and maybe you're at the max? (not sure for weapon cat. only upgraded evasion once)

    This is going to turn into DRG flame war yet again I can see it already. If you're a DRG walk away while you can, if you're a SAM than that's different. Sadly people don't take too kindly to DRGs on these forums.

    I hear a linch mob in the distance aproaching rather fast. (Run Away!)

    Level six is the max for any weapon in Combat Skills.

    Additionally, Evasion Skill can only be raised to level three so I'd assume that's the same for the other miscellaneous skills.

    correct me if i'm wrong, well not been on to remember, that evasion skill is a combat skill and should follow the same rules?

    It should but it doesn't. I'm sure I don't need to explain to anyone the logic behind Square enforcing a cap on it

    Most weapons will cap at 288 assuming they are A+ skill, but GTK, for instance, caps at 293 skill. 276 base skill, 5 from AABC earring, 12 from merits.

    Go to hell Xavier along w/ all the other people who play jobs w/ A+ weapon skill and have earrings that give even more. @#$%#@^%@#%@#^[email protected]

    Look at how often I put the +Scythe skill to use on my Abyssal Earring... ;_;

    (Should have got a Suppanomimi...)

    Dual wield + for extra awesomeness since the +5 dark magic skill on it is pretty much worthless.

    I don't think Suppanomimi is that great.

    Yesterday, after careful consideration, I chose Suppanomimi over Abyssal Earring.

    reason: Suppanomimi benefits 4 jobs (THF, RNG, NIN, WAR). Abyssal benefits 3 (DRK, BLM, RDM). The other earrings are useless as they pretty much benefit one job only (PLD, BST, SAM).

    besides, 5% haste will be awesome when i go WHM/NIN.

    I've been wondering about this for a while. I've been hesitant to put any merits on Hand-to-Hand skill just because my next job is going to be Theif, and since Thief totally suck with sword, figured I should wait and use all my merits there. Am I doing the right thing by waiting? Or should I go ahead and use them on Hand-to-Hand?
