I'm working on soloing my war at level 13. Farming/Practicing my tactics as a non-magic user for when I PT with my static. In soloing would Great axe be better than axe/shield?

My personal opinion is that you should take this opportunity to work on BOTH Axe/Shield and GreatAxe. Having them both as close to cap as you can when you start to party makes it so much easier to keep them capped.

I don't think it really makes a difference which one you end up using either. Both have plusses and negatives. Being a Mithra...I'd probably lean towards the GreatAxe for the extra "oomph" you'll get, but seriously I don't think it matters.

I hate to say this but I'm out as far as providing weapons goes.

I must of handed out more than 20 and all was well.

Then someone who I sent an axe too sends me this mssg:

"Ha! sucker! thanks for the free gill j00 nub!"

I don't have time to meet everyone in person.

And frankly I don't care who plays a WAR and what they use anymore.

In fact go be a PLD.

I like being different and the less of you that play WAR the better.

yes I'm bitter but I after all... I'm only a wookie.

hey, you did the best you can wookie.

all i can offer is make that persons rep worth ****. point as many friends and acquaintances to this thread as you can and state how that person gipped you, then watch him suffer in obscurity as half the NA population or more shuns him.

it worked for me on this one particular bard who refused to give me a garrison item that was, by right, mine, based on the rules that we had set out before hand. i hopped on every LS i had and shat on his name, and even tho he was a bard main, he leveled so painfully slow that he eventually quit because he just couldnt get any parties.
The thing about me is that apparently it's very hard to tell when I'm drunk. So I feel like I'm walking sideways on a UFO and everyone else sees me doing the robot like a pro.

Sadly I don't remember his name. This was a while back and it actualy put me off of playing for a while (and posting for that matter) So in time I forgot. [DRK(something)] I think. (but don't harass every Drksomthing) My guess is that it was someone's mule.

BTW anyone else on Asura get punked like this?

never the less, I have no intention of handing out a free axe anytime soon. Maybe if I see a low level WAR who has some odd equipment and after speaking with said player I find that they have true intent to play WAR all the way... I'd prolly equip them head to toe.

But I'm done with the whole "can I have an axe?" : "sure" deal.

Part of what makes WAR so great to me is that there are so few of us.

If there was a whole ton of us... I'd be a monk.

I have great respect for those who are still willing to give out an axe to any one who asks, and I warn those who aim to take advantage of thier charity that I will make the game unplayable for you... right up until they ban me.

well chewie when ever there are people doin some thing nice theres always some A$$ hole 2 mess it up or gain a profit.
i understand why u feel this way and dont blame you for feeling this way.

like i said always some 1 to mess it up. but dont feel bad
it happens 2 the best of us lol. : (

hope this made u feel a lil better : )

personaley, after the lvl 1 Gaxe i dont really see a reason
2 rely on you guys for axes any more, personaley i think peeps should lower the cost for the lvl 1 Gaxe... that way more peeps would purchase them on there own. im not playin right nowgrounded...school sucks : (... any way i already got my plan
for a mule 2 farm fire crystals for a nice profit. while my main war will be in bastock (hume or galka i need 2 decide >_<)

any way just a thought for new players 2 maintain a steady income.

Sign me up for the Ifrit server. I give newer warriors free Greataxes all the time as it is anyway. May as well make it official.

I cannot afford to hand out greataxes, but what I have been doing is setting up a load(7) butterfly axes on my mules in sandy, windy, and bastok. at 700 per(roughly what I pay +fAH fee) and then spam the history so they will know they are 700... problem is asshat crafters buying them all up so I cannot keep up with demand.

Huh... I'm still on the list? Heh heh... oops. ^^;

I hope nobody tried to contact me in-game. I haven't logged in to FFXI since Christmas.


Umm... dangit, is NOBODY willing to take this up on Kujata? The offer to finance the new mentor still stands... (family members still play, so my character is still around)

It's sad here on Ramuh. I've been a mentor for the GA challenge since near the beginning, but up until now only one person has made a request for an axe.

While playing zone cop in the Dunes, I can count the number of people in one hand I see using GA.

I hand out about 3 or 4 a week still, and this week I even managed to convince some poor sould with a Scythe to switch when I got bored camping the VE :P. I couldn't cre less if these people are trying to rip me off, they wouldn't be the first, and certainly not the last. All i know is, Remora's WAR's almost exclusively use Great Axe/Axe, and I am a happy camper ^^. I do, however, instst on talking to all of these new WAR's for at least a few minutes, to make sure that at the very least they understand the benefits of using certain weapons in certain situations, and why it is good to have more than just Great Axe capped. My goal is more to impart knowledge, as I find that to be a stronger weapon than a Great Axe... though not by much :P.

Still here, giving thread a much needed bump.
Currently levelling WHM so as to give my gf a hand with her WAR, (yes, my gf plays, and she plays a WAR also.. be jealous), but am always happy and willing to toss a helping axe towards a fellow WAR.

Caitsith's overrun with rampant Ninja and Ranger fetishists right now.. we could use some more people of intergrity...

Ashael, Alexander.
Ever since I saw a 41 WAR with a polearm(back in the days as Pally main but after Penta nerf)... and no other weapon, esp. Great Axe... in a party with another DRG (ie no SC..) ... I'm scarred man. I must combat this menace.
Tossed one out due to a request for help on my server forum, figured I'd change my status to Official GAC Rep, Alexander.

I had thought that this thread had died, but its good to see its still kicking :p

On titan, I haven't had to give away any axes for awhile. Everytime I've seen a war below 20 they've had a g axe already. Of course, I don't go hang out in the dunes very much, so for all I know g axes are still a rare commodity there :p
