Getting updated on gear (weapons)Follow

In a few days I will be returning from a two-year hiatus, so there are goals I need to set and gear is one thing.

My DNC is 80, I will have leveling to do and skilling up thereafter before I will get to the real business of earning stuff.

Before I left, I was working on earning a lightning Kila doing Golems in sky. From what I read now, finding that accuracy is valued less compared to attack, I regrettably should have worked for the fire one instead (damn flans put me off it at the time). Do you think I should finish it anyway? Knowing there will be new content outside of Abyssea what with the new expansion, I think I might as well. I'm not sure.

I considered doing a pair of wind daggers for the situational evasion, until I read on the Oynos & Twilight Knife that looks to me like it's a better pair for medium-difficulty NM soloing. The wind pair maybe for harder NMs but I imagine I'll be facing fewer of them by a large margin, or even none at all. Hmm.

Now onto the multi-hit trial daggers. I finished trial 11, hoping I haven't accepted trial 12 after finding out the end result isn't better than a pair of DA ones. Can a trial be canceled and step down one branch or will I have to start from scratch? Black Triple Stars were a pain.

That's it for weapons. Criticisms and opinions welcomed.

...draining with sambas is kind of like you smack the thing and as you smack blood flies out... normally the blood would just you know fall and be red an what-not, but, with the samba your all whacked out and decide to drink the blood as it flys out. thus not adding MORE damage just taking more advantage of your damage. at least thats my take on it.

A Dex dagger, while not great, isn't an absolutely terrible choice to go with, but a Str Dagger is a better option all around. It'd make for a nice stand-in for content until you finished Str daggers if you went with them. Worst case scenario is you make them and then you don't use them, but fortunately Thunder Geodes/Ramuites aren't too expensive (I know they aren't on Lakshmi, and I'd imagine it's the same on your server).

You can clear a trial that's already on a weapon, but you can't revert it to a previous state. For example, say, for whatever reason, I have made a Kila and I've upgraded it to a Daka in preparation to maybe do the Walk of Echoes path for Rudra's Storm. I can't revert the Daka back to a Kila should I decide to instead go the Empyrean path to make a Twashtar. Now, if I had the trial on the Kila to make a Daka, but hadn't turned it in to make the Daka yet, I could have a Magian moogle clear the trial off the weapon and my Magian log, and then use that Kila to do the Twashtar path.

Once you've traded the weapon in to the moogle after finishing the trial, you can't change the weapon back.
