So now that Rune has an Af weapon. Does anyone who already sunk plasm into their Bereaver realy care?

Bereaver (base): DMG:209 Delay:456 Accuracy+8 Attack+8 Great Sword skill +162 Parrying skill +162

Beorc (Bjork??) Sword: DMG:193 Delay:480 "Magic Atk. Bonus"+8 Evasion+15 Great Sword skill +108 Parrying skill +113

Otherwise the AF armor set does look more focoused than Manibozo and piecemealing misc parts together. How suprised or let down are your expectations as far in terms of what Rune got in the sense of typical Artifact stats. RIght now all thats left is the +1 versions

I think it's close enough behind the Bereaver to still be useful for those still making that jump to the Delve gear. Artifact weapons tended to be decent for their level, but at the same time would often get outclassed within a level or two of coming out (if not already outclassed by something at lv. 40), so the Beorc being in the range of Bereaver (even if weaker than it) isn't that different.

I do enjoy some of the stats on the Artifact armor, but I felt that there were some stats missing that should have been on there. For a tank job, I was surprised that there wasn't any Enmity on the armor. Likewise, I was surprised there wasn't any MAB on any of the armor or anything directly affecting Lunge damage. I enjoyed that the effect on the body is actually "Adds Refresh Effect" rather than "Enhances Refresh Effect", since it's nice to have a +2 MP/tic body on Rune Fencer that's not Orvail or Manasa Chasuble.
