    Storm Gear

    Was it really necessary for SE to make it so rare? I've done probably 30 assaults by now and have gotten ??? box all but 4 times, when i got ??? bows and ??? footwear from lamia 13. Best piece of anything I've had appraised is a crossbow +1.....

    I've never seen anyone with storm gear and the expansion has been out for 2 months.

    One got the hand first week in my ls. Havent heard anything good drop from them since then.

    I heard baseless rumor about Nashlau giving better appraisal, mayeb I should try out.

    I've gotten Storm Gambieras and Imperial Bow so far. Everything else has been complete trash, not even an item worth a bit of gil (Archers Ring, Heims Earring etc.). The Storm items are pretty good and assaults are easy and swift. I think the rarity is justified.

    Assault is already fun enough. It's short, very quick, fairly easy, doesn't require many people, has set rewards that are even for all. The ??? item appraisal is just icing on the cake. It's not needed and while it can suck to not get a 4mil item, it doesn't bother me much.

    Best thing I have ever seen from an appraisal was a Wild Onion.

    Personally, I think you should only get ??? items if you are going to get something good. If the item is going to be crap, then it should just not drop and waste our time.

    The ??? box from Finding Faults got me a Troll Bronze Ingot(from Nashmau NPC). That sells for 30k.

    I often think the ??? items are added mostly for comical value. Usually you appraise and everyone in party just has a couple laughs at how worthless the items are. I usually like to wait to appraise until the end of a series of multiple assault runs, and sometimes you get cool 'sets', for example i got a yew fishing pole, a rusty bucket, a little worm, and distilled water from items from 4 runs in a row.

    One thing that I am surprised people are not doing is selling the unappraised items... I didn't check if they are AHable, but they are definitely tradeable, not ex and not rare. Especially the ??? items you get by yourself (e.g., from the finding faults quest) seems like something you could sell for a decent amount and people would buy lots for the small chance one might not be a dud... People sorta do that for fish in the fishing quest. I guess that shows people still don't mind using them up instead for the minuscle chance at a cool new item

    Doesn't surprize me. Your chance of getting something good is very low. All I ever got was exceptionally shitty.

    I would seriously like that storm loop earring.

    Best thing we ever got was an imperial tea leaf on the 3rd day of expansion, sold for 40k. Other than that, I've gotten a bunch of copper/brass rings that I desynth.

    Seen Storm Loop twice while plowing through excavation duty over and over for AP to get my Chivalrous Chain. Lost lot on the first and was pissed because I figured I'd never see it again. About 3 days later, another dropped, and I won it.

    Would be nice if it the two stats stacked (they don't) but it's a nice +atk earring for my nin anyway, since I'm not active enough in limbus to have my Brutal yet.
