    Questions from a returning player

    So the level cap raising has made me resub. I've been away since maybe 3-5 months after WoTG was released and I have a few questions that need answering if you please.

    1) What changes have been made to my jobs BLM/RDM/BLU/DNC (new spells, JAs, new gear etc...)?

    2)What changes have been made to crafting (I'm 100+3 Bonecraft)?

    3)Have they finished the WoTG mission line and how are the missions (easy, hard, solable, need a pick up group etc.) also what shinies do you get at the end?

    4) what are the mini expansions like? are they worth getting? Do they have good rewards?

    5) What other major changes have been implemented (I experienced Level Sync last night. is there anything else?

    6)Any new endgame content since einherjar? and if so what are the drops like?

    Thanks in advance for the advice.

    You want a summary of 2 years of updates? lol

    What changes have been made to my jobs BLM/RDM/BLU/DNC (new spells, JAs, new gear etc...)?
    BLM > nothing
    RDM > new JAs
    BLU > 2 new spells
    DNC > no clue

    What changes have been made to crafting
    Synergy. look it up on wiki

    Have they finished the WoTG mission line
    No. WoTG will be finished in September.

    what are the mini expansions like?
    Horrible fetch quests, medicore cutscenes (compared to ToAU and WotG standards) and isignificant storylines.

    are they worth getting? Do they have good rewards?
    Depends if you want the rewards. You can look those up at the mini expansion's website. None of them are worth getting for the story.

    What other major changes have been implemented?
    Any new endgame content since einherjar?
    A lot.
    Most significant were SCNMs, ANNMs, Ixion/Sandworm, Pixie weapons, Augments. Synergy/Aptant NMs could become more important when they raise the cap and add more (better) Evoliths.

    Or you could go a an FFXI site like BG wiki or other wiki and look up Blue Magic.

    In the future, you may want to think twice about starting an entirely new thread to ask your own personal questions because you're too lazy to look up 3 or 4 patch notes...


    Meanwhile I'll be thinking about bumping lazy peoples' useless threads.

    medicore cutscenes (compared to ToAU and WotG standards) and isignificant storylines.
    I wouldn't say that at all. The cutscenes were good imo.

    Edit: Yeah last two blu spells were Triumphant Roar and Sub-zero smash.

    That's why i said "by AU/WotG standards". Especially the ACP cutscenes were little more than the protagonists standing around and moving their mouths. It was not all shit though. Opening cs of ACP was nice, Kupo and ASA has some amusing ones, but the standards are much higher now than what they delivered with the mini addons.

    I'd say they progressively got better. Shantotto had a awesome CS at the end.

    Don't return would be the best, really.

    Hey question, I'm coming back as well. Looking towards finishing up the add-ons and I'm wondering what the best choices for damage output are on the gear.

    Haste +3% / Double Attack +2%
    Legs

    Acc+10/Attack+5 / Haste+3% Snapshot +3% or STR+2 Haste+2% or is Acc+3 Pet: Haste+5% any good?
    STR+4 WS Accuracy+15 is also pretty damn spiffy for polearm ws's actually
    Helm

    Acc+10 / Double Attack+2%
    Body

    This is all with DRG/SAM or WAR in mind. This good or bad? Should I go crit on body? I really love DA since I'm big on the slowest lances and DA jumps get me off. Is the DA simply not as good as pumping something like STR or Attack? I doubt that.

    Hmm, obviously SAM wins out as a sub if Sekka becomes subbable, but is WAR pretty good at 99 with Agressor sub?

    It really depends on the quality of your existing gear. Double attack on the legs is a bad idea get +acc. Even on the body DA is probably not the 2nd best DD stat depending on how much STP you have.

    The head piece really is a mid range DD helm nothing that special. The best combo solo is probably +2 dex 5% haste or 10 acc 3% haste again depending on the quality of your gear and merits. If you're like me and think the DD helm looks hideous the +4 str +15 WS acc is pretty kickass especially when you're spamming all those multihit WSs on War and Drg.

    Oh sorry, I didn't mean to give the impression I also play WAR, I meant that I'm still very attached to subbing WAR with DRG, thus the DA build for sick jumps.

    But let's just say these stat choices are with general usage in mind, I realize they're sub-optimal, but you gotta' start somewhere.

    Unless that is they have a specific use as a best of slot for some specific situational utilitarian usage.

    With the amount of players resubbing because of the update I see this as a helpful post.

    Walking through bastok and wondering WTF these synergy things are.

    I myself am torn between upgrading my gear or holding out for uncapping the level.
