Errr, capped my exp >_>! \o/

My BRD is already pretty well done:

Opo-Opo Crown (Why do so many 75 BRD's not have this incredible piece? - The HP and MP alone are godly when subbing a mage job, let alone the +14 CHR before negation when using Pamamas, cheapest endgame food ever!)
Kirin's Osode
Loq. Earring
Goliard Clogs
Joyeuse
Genbu's Shield
Yigit Gomlek
Signed Jesters +1
Omega Ring
Balrahn's Ring
Tamas Ring

Not really wanting for much more, but the Cradle Horn and Rostrums would be nice for my Fast Cast set, as I am always /RDM - It is just far more useful than /NIN in Einherjar and Limbus, due to the AoE spamming. Magic Defence Bonus and Stoneskin with a full MND+Enhancing Magic set keeps me alive a LOT longer, and I can toss out cures, and cast songs in about 3-4 seconds, as oppose to nearly 7-8, which means less time spent around the mobs.

I would love some Haidate though, and I am now at the front of the queue for them if I remember correctly.

Might go for the Swan Bilbo at some point, merely because it looks cool. I am focusing more on my RDM though, and it's Magian Trial (which ironically will be my new PLD sword once it is completed).

Might start boosting my Minuet though, no BRD merits other than Troubadour and Nightingale at the moment, and as I am the event BRD of the shell, might benefit them more for a few little nudges in the AP.

Note that I have the crown, but I can offer several reasons!

1. There's a fetch-quest involved. It's annoying, but not difficult.
2. It's a fine enough piece, but not godly. Having to eat pamamas makes it less attractive to endgame bards using Tav. Tacos/Marron Glace/cookies during events.
3. The stats are easily eclipsed by other endgame gear. Bard's Roundlet/+1 and Marduk's Tiara come to mind, but Zenith Crown also provides the +50MP without the downside of needing to use ancillary food.

It's a question of whether or not money's a factor for you, I guess.

In order of expense while meriting:
/NIN (Shihei/Tav Tacos)
/MAGE (Tav Tacos)
/MAGE (Pamamas)

Opo crown is also pretty old content. Marduk is SHINY. Shiny > all.

This. Maron glace alone gives more mp, let alone after adding zenith/turban. Not to mention unless you have dalm or lolmarduk, you don't get the mp during idle, since vermy prevents you from using a hat. And as he said, relic is better for debuffs.

I don't usually post here because my BRD is usually passed over for people with it as a job focus gearwise, but I did finish capping it's merits in preparation for the next patch (if I'm called to come as BRD for something).

BRD Merits completed



Older screenshot of a few Mordant Rimes in a Greater Colibri merit party. If I get a chance to do one again in the near future, I'll see what effect the Nightingale/Troubadour merits have when it comes to my downtime spent singing.

Marduk Shalwars! The 35 dropped two weeks ago, but it was just last night that I whined to my group enough to do the "wasted" run needed to get the 15s.

15/15 in terms of pieces, but only 4/5 Marduk unlocked. I've got the 3 pieces for the body, but I'm not bothering unless I win the upcoming moogle lottery, since I have Sha'ir manteel and dalmatica and AF+1 body (and a few other things) and I've got my sights set on Morrigans next.

Holy crap! About time! I remember teasing you ages ago over Marduk, I really didn't think it would be so long for you to finish. ; ;

While Jubbah usefulness drops hard against Manteel, it's still a good piece. Morri is definately a hot item, but the stat boosts on Marduk (FC vs SST, HP/MP/MND/CHR) definately makes it a worthwhile piece for those dedicated to their job.

You have never heard 6 happier people on skype than when Giant Spiders start appearing from that blasted thing.

Edit: And Ix'DRG finally gave me a cape, so I'm just a pair of Oracle's Pigaches and my relic horn away from the mythical "perfect march" setup.

Just hit lv. 80 last night in Abyssea, which I'm glad about since it was the one job I was least looking forward to as far as getting to lv. 80.

I just capped 80 with almost 7 merits . . . Abyssea alliance on Pachypodiums.

I was also pulling AND calling for that alliance. It took me a little trial and error, and a hint from someone else, but my macro worked out pretty well in the end. While I was standing there swinging mindlessly at the mandies I'd sing ballad to my mages.

I never want to do that again XD Was a bit too much activity for my taste.

Bought a chanter's staff and a minstrel's ring; also put in about 150k into a latent set for said minstrel's ring.

KS30 is nice<3

Also, at the 11.82% March tier now, just 1 skill short of 11.91% march tier (can be fixed with a short merit party)

Aoidos' Belt and Veela Ring get. Although I suspect that Balrahn's is better for debuffing, I don't think anybody can definitively say (assuming Omega Ring in other ring slot).

Got my second Coiled Yarn by soloing (and some dualboxing) Temenos West. About time, it only took me like 20+ runs x.x

Looooong awaited.
