    BLM Advice - Magnetic or Static?

    Hey, so yeah, I'm very close to geting one of these beauties...


    BUT I CANT MAKE UP MY MIND IM GOING TO GO INSANE!

    I dont have the AF2 boots, I wear a Abyssal and Moldy atm.

    My MBs are quite nice however, I can break 2k with the weather and Obi but typically 1600-1800 atm.

    I solo...quite a bit....but I love MBing... Anyone got some advice I am sure a lot of u were in the same position as me.

    They really need to make a amnesia npc for mission based rewards, or they need to make some way to change it, but at some cost. Dont they need more ways to get gil out of the system?

    Ok well Convserve MP +5 would rock it'll help me in the long run but....

    Exactly how much more damage on MBs can I expect with the Static?

    As for Ethreal I cant see that being of use to me...I try not to get hit too much and 3% return "might" save my life once in the blue moon yeah?

    I also have a 71 NIN but I takin that to 75 just for NMs and shit. BLM 4 lyfe.

    Where's that 10 page topic we had about this already and why didn't you search for it before posting?

    I think it's somewhat similar to BLM af2 gloves, adds maybe 50-60 dmg to your MB.

    ...theres more spells than Thundaga III...
    Its 5% from what I've heard for both MB bonuses. I'd go magnetic.

    BTW I originally thought this said BLU for some reason...

    Oh and they have enough money sinks in place guys, they don't really need more.

    I swear there's a topic on KI discussing the exact same thing, if not more than one

    Anyway, Magnetic ftw. Ever since I got Sorcerer's Sabots I've left my Rostrum Pumps rotting in my MH, because of how much better the Conserve MP is than 1 INT and fast cast. However, now that Yigit is available, as soon as I get em I'm definitely gonna be missing that Conserve MP >.> so Magnetic will make up for it nicely :D

    This is kind of far off from the point I was making. My point is a lot of people are pissed they got stuck with a bad missions reward choice, and would do a lot of timesink/gilsink/whatever to change it.

    It was a side comment, I just was making a side comment to respond to a side comment. But anyways, I'm glad you can't trade them in. It makes you have to make decisions in this game and makes your character more personal.

    If it's just BLM impacting the decision, I feel it's static without a doubt. There are already too many idiot BLMs who manaburn everything and forgot what skillchains look like; I hate how magnetic seems to be so appealing. If your LS throws more than just BLMs at everything, you'll enjoy the MB bonus. I solo a lot too and I'm meticulous enough to have to reach the stoneskin cap on BLM and static is also a big part in that; it's not just MB. Though, I do have AF2+1 boots and I feel with that and weskit, Conserve MP is ample enough. It's extremely random anyway from what I've noticed. Furthermore, losing 2 INT for basically just "MP" makes me feel like a nab galka BLM at Lv40, whether it's just total mp or mp saved from nukes. (uze iNT or +mP!?)

    So, the gloves add 50-60 damage to stone bursts?
