If you think that people buy gil to get a fully upgraded relic, you are possibly the most retarded person I have ever met. First of all, if you knew anything, you would know that although the currency is a very hard part, getting the Key Items are about just as hard. You need about an army backing you up to help you get some of the key items.

Also, many LS's upgrade relics for its members, to better the LS.

But one thing that I can assure you is, that NO ONE has ever bought enough gil to upgrade a relic, ever.

AND he was talked about a lot for doing it, but I can see where he is going with it...I'd like to see any of them try to back up what they are saying about him, he said he would take any of them on in a PVP ANYTIME because he would whoop their @$$'s everytime

I don't believe anyone obtains fully upgraded relic weapons honestly. Either they bought gil to get their crafting high to earn the money, or they bought gil to buy the currency, and along the way bought the gear to get themselves into the hardcore Dynamis lses that would get them the attestations and what-not. Kind of a let down, but then, so was this game. Good-bye, FFXI.

Think of obtaining god-like status in FFXI like obtaining a seat in Congress or a high-ranking position in the CIA, FBI, or White House. There's always some dirty, underhanded stuff that goes on to get you to the top. It's politics...it's business.

He ment the additional damage, its Based on 25% of your HP. So since Galka's have the highest HP in the game, the Excalibur's Additional damage does the most for them.

(I can't even think about 900m even being possible lol) I'm just curious as to how people went about getting it. I have yet to see anyone on my server with it.

Saw an Elvaan PLD with this thing the other day while I was trying to get a chocobo in Jeuno. I noticed he had a Republic Aketon, those spectacles you wear to increase your Goldsmithing skills, and this sword that was absolutely beautiful... Had no idea what it was until I examined him and I was just blown away. I took a screenshot, but again, it kinda sucks.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v428/Blinded_by_Twilight/1337sauce2.jpg

I tried to get a conversation going with the guy, but he spoke Japanese, so no luck.

Congratulations Lei of Midgardsormr. You are the first player I've seen on my server with something this cool; thus, I honor you with the title, "Mr. 1337Sauce."

Lei: Hero of heroes

100+ Goldsmithing
5/5 Kaiser (HQ Koenig)
5/5 Valor
Excalibur
Aegis Shield
Gosenbogen +1
Shadow Mantle
Defending Ring
Hades earring +1 x 2

As you can see, there's no better PLD tank gear than his. He was from a linkshell named: NewCompany (JP) a notorious linkshell that almost had no rivals other than Rzero and the broken LS GameOver. If you're on Midgard server you would know of these names. However all great things come to an end. NewCompany is now broken and from the rumors I've heard from many people Lei had sold his account for $5,000USD. Still this character is a great character with it's unparalleled endgame gears. Worth $5,000USD to you? HAHAHA

Lei got banned... with Ragnarok, Excalibur, and Aegis in his possession. Also from what I understood about the legendary Lei, he was a shared account amongst a highly reputable Japanese linkshell, and an entire linkshell donated their time and dynamis currency into this shared account's relics to be "THE MAIN TANK", so to speak. So what Discordian done, when he did it, was pretty remarkable. Lei though, was merely a puppet. All based on hear-say of course, as I don't understand Japanese.

a dude from remora got this a tarutaru Paladin called Senseless. and i invited him to a exp party. and he was using this sword.

KOTR does around 300-600 and the guy has no idea what makes it beter or worse. More tp did same as 100 tp. it also gives a 10 hp regen to the person using it for a lil bit.

THe added effects are critical hits for 3X damage randomly. So a 80 swing criticals for 240 randomly.

and another effect id it does 1/4 of the persons current HP. and it kicks in about 8-13% of the time. not 1/4 times.

It kicks *** in general. shame the guy is a tarutaru PLD or it would pretty much pawn lol.

Got 15k a hour exp from party was BRD RDM NIN NIN NIN. and one of the japanese NIN went (Tarutaru) (Paladin) (Excalibur) (Invite To Join Party) WHen i was gonna get another ninja lmao.

So it turned out RDM BRD NIN NIN NIN PLD.

Id say overall DD. the PLD was second best. better then the elvaan and galka ninja;s. But There was a tarutaru ninja who was hauling *** so he was best.

Actually, 900 million is correct.

You need 17900 coins total, and prices have gone up considerably due to gilseller induced inflation in januari/februari. Other reasons for it to go up are completion of several relic weapons across all servers, and upgrading relic +1 armor.

So prices seem to vary between 50k and 100k:
17900 x 50k = 895M
17900 x 100k = 1790M

That's excluding the synthing of other items needed, obtaining coins from dynamis and the expenses for each dynamis run.

Relic WS can make or continue Lv.3 Skillchains.

For example, if you had a MNK, SAM, and RNG with relic, the MNK and SAM would make Darkness and the RNG would make another, seperate Darkness with the Gun WS.

You know what cracks me up, a lv100 crafter who can easily make 10mil per synth just buy all theyre surrency without even blinking. If a lv100+3 smithy ever crafted a Cursed Hauberk -1, he will have made a 450mil profil as it goes for 500mil on my server (asura). By the way this is the way im planning on getting mine, except not that cheaply. Instead i want to use my gil to sponsor dynamis, that way my LS fan farm AF2 while i work on my weapon.

What? There's no one making 10mil profit per synth anywhere on NQ synths. It would never happen under any circumstances ever, because if someone found a NQ synth they could make even close to that much profit then 2 things would happen:

1. The people selling the ingredients will raise their prices.

2. Other crafters will start doing it too and your price will have to be competitive with thiers.

The only way to make that kind of gil is on HQ synths and to HQ an item that will get you 10mil profit you have to remember a few things. The HQ rates on high level synths are very low, and you will have to sell a lot of NQ's at little or even no profit to get your HQ. What is worse is that the more synths it takes to get your HQ, the more chances you have of your synth failing and you will lose some of your ingredients. Also you need to keep in mind that expensive synths require rare ingredients. You can't just grab a stack of 99 Venemous Claws and start crafting away at Scorpion Harnesses to your heart's content. There just isn't enough supply for that, and if there was then a Scorpion Harness wouldn't make you any money because they would be everywhere, people would prolly even be selling them to a NPC because they would have so many.

I'm not saying you can't make gil crafting, but certainly not in the way you are imagining. If someone is telling you they make 10 mil per synth then they are probably using crafting as a fence to launder the gil they are getting in a less than legitamate manner.

Edit: and Farming your own ingredients wouldn't make any differnce at all. If you farm the ingredients to make a 10 mil NQ synth and you sell it for 10mil you didn't make more profit than if you just sold the ingredients on the AH. The fact that you crafted them didn't make the 10mil, the farming did. The advantage of you crafting it was that you had a chance at a HQ.

The fact that he said a lv 100 crafter and 10mil proftis synth would make you think an HQ synth. Please read more carefully. Most of us understand the idea of AH prices and what makes them go up and down. He was making a comment on how he plans to get the weapon, not how he plans to make 10m on an NQ synth.

Agreed. He never said anything about making 10 mil off a NQ synth.

I'm currently on stage 3 of this (The Dynamis Sword) with 1162/6100 shells. Its been a bit of work and about 6 months of time, though thats mainly because im not the main sponsor in my LS unfortunately.

The weapons are all superb and worthwhile but 2 big words of advice I could give to any upgraders are:

1) Gather all the currency you need for stages 1 and 2 but dont actually upgrade them yet. Reason being is, stage 1 and 2 tend to go by easily and you get all excited but then most people hit stage 3 and give up, lots of wasted currency that way >.<. And believe me, it may look cool to have Militant Knuckles or a Glyptic Sword but they all suck, and you can live w/o them for a time being.

2) Once you hit stage 3 (or even prior to it really) try to establish trading partners, those who have good sponsorship standing in their own LS's and will trade you the currency you need for what they need. That way you can sponsor every single dynamis and be making progress, thats really the only reason I already have 1162 shells >.>

Really can't wait til this sucker is done, though it probably wwont be til like september at my current rate ; ;

Misc Info
# Dec 23 2005 at 1:02 AM Rating: Decent
According to various sources I've come across.. Excalibur, along with all (if not, most) fully upgraded relic weaponry, have various hidden stats that seem normal for weapons.. though place them on a completely different level. If I remember correctly about info I've read about Excalibur from an LS web site.. Discordian had said that this weapon has decent accuracy and decent-to-good critical rates.. yet the accuracy of the weapon skill itself is low-to-decent. Of course, this isn't all that was listed, but I can't remember all the details. All of the relic WSs do have hidden effect(s) that can kick in after using it, though not all the time (Excalibur's being a regen effect and a rare and very short invincibility). So even relic weapons and their WSs can miss or not give you that extra effect (for those who still think that they're infinitely perfect). I have a vid of Discordian using Excalibur in a party (to help others on G1) against the Boreal Hound. I'm willing to send it to people, though it's not easy to just up and post it somewhere (~8.8 MB file size). I'll admit, however, that this sword is definitely worth getting if you want to spend the time and gil to get it.
On a side note, I've come to find out that all relic weapons require a 10k-piece version of the first commission piece, as well as fragment from the Animated weapon-type, shard of necropsyche, and the fourth level weapon. I've posted some info that I've found out on the necropsyche page, though not much. For now, I'll continue my search for more information on each of the relic weapons...

OK look you don't know anything about this sword either obviously the additional effect is 1/4 your hp as added damage so say you hit for 100 damage and had 1000 hp it would show up as

"<your name> hits <the mob> for 100 points of damage!"
"Additional effect: 250 points of damage!"

so get it right

I love how these people make assupmtions, when in fact they know nothing about it. "Anyways, the ability is really straightforward, I don't see how so many people can't understand this." "DMG proportionate to current HP means whatever your current HP is at the time of activation is how much extra damage is added on". Hypocritical much? Sorry, this is an old post, but I just found that unusually funny for some reason. "That's a direct hit to the irony bay! We're losing dignity fast!" XD

To activate all of the animated weapons (make them speak, spawn satellite weapons, and drop their respective shard when defeated) you have to kill the 15 demon NMs (this is in dynamis-xarcabard of course, and there's 1 demon for every job). You'll get a message in your chat log that says something like the souls have been set free, that's how you know you can kill the weapons and get the drop.

Actually, it could only take you 29 weeks, 7 hours per week.

If you do Dynamis twice a week, and you sponsor both Dynamises (or the final amount of coins gets distributed to you), you can make 600 coins per week. Considering this upgrade takes 17900 coins, that's 29 weeks of doing Dynamis twice a week, like I said.

Considering most people have more playtime than that, I don't think I'd consider that to be "NO LIFE", or 3000+ gaming hours.

As long as you have the Dynamis LS and gil to fund it, it's not that hard to obtain. On Remora, I know there are two people with Caliburn (the state before Excalibur), one JP and the other NA (a friend of mine from my Dynamis LS). I know three people who are on the third state of Relic Horn, one of which already has the Attestation of Harmony for it. I, myself, have an Attestation of Sacrifice for the Mjollnir (club), which I plan on upgrading as soon as I'm done helping my boyfriend with his currently-third-stage Relic Horn.

Point is: it's not really as hard as everyone thinks. It's time-consuming, and gil-consuming, but not to the point where it's unrealistic. (^.^)b

He said they get 600 in 1 week and 1 week = 2 runs so that means about 300 or so a run.

You could make two swords if you wanted to but you could only make 1 Excalibur as its a rare item and have a backup usless Caliburn. If you want to dual weild swords offhand a Company Sword or Joyeuse for the extra WS damage.

Currency is confirmed on all the stages:
1st 400 Bronze
2nd 1400 Byne
3rd 6100 Whiteshell
4th 10,000 Bronze

"Additional Effect" is a random attack of 1/4 your current HP aka 1600HP = 400 additional damage. Some enemies slightly resist this damage such as Giant Birds, Elementals, and some undead. I've been compiling a list but it looks like if an enemy has above average light or darkness resist it changes the 1/4 fraction to 1/5 or 1/6.
