buying gil for relic
# Nov 14 2007 at 6:22 PM Rating: Decent
I definetly agree with megapoopile (>.> nice name lol). i know people that have been playing this game for about 3 years and still don't have their relic weapons. Although i don't see any monks on the ifrit server with the monk relic lol but yes SE made this for a reason and that was to challenge the people of ffxi. do you expect for the best pair of hand-to-hand weapons in the game to be easy to acquire?

I don't really understand why people always post on forums just to flame people. Don't you have better things to do like learn proper spelling and grammar? Just a thought, how about you get the weapon before you say it sucks. A lot of things people take for fact, are just hearsay. I congratulate anyone who has relic weapons. Whether you had to buy gil for part of it or not, what is anyone gonna do? "You bought gil. People stand by while the world all gangs up on you and pwns you cuz you ruined the game for everybody. Onoes!" If someone buys gil, it's not awesome super cools or anything, but you can't stop them. You can give them a hard time, but they just rate you down. You hurt yourself when you flame people, and you waste your time. I don't post very often, but I like to keep my posts clean, flame free, and flame retardant. Good day.

Anyone try tanking with the enhance counter effect? Any numbers on how often it procs? These look like a great weapon for a varity of combat. Of course there is faith b. and destroyers, but is the time and effort to get these worth it? Idk if someone has all 3 and has parsed them with different set-ups, I'd be curious to know the results.

A Mnk with:
destroyers + shura body / osode + turban / ohat / shura head + str/dex rings + b. hadaite + fuma / dune boot + af / b. kote + brn/blk belt + str/dex/atk earings + merits in str, counter, 2x atk, HP, crits

This set up works great for spam style xp, and I never have a problem with dmg output. (War/nin with riddil / joy / maneater + adaman harb are right there on dmg if not top) But really once you get past xp chain500 @ 17k+ xp/hr is there a point to the massive dynamis grind for relic h2h? Maybe full merit tanking mnk counter / -phy dmg / guard skill could counter tank with these? Why break tradition on jorm, faf, vtra, etc idk.

Just some questions and thoughts for all you vultures to pick apart. :)

no it's not better , and it's not "Narishma" it's "Nashira" and shura is not 3 pieces it's 5 so should've been 3/5 or 5/5 (i highly doubt that you even play the game) nad yeah SE would'nt allow a LS named "SoFukinUber" to exist they would ask the leader to break it.
please buy the game and play it instead of posting crap in Allakhazam.

that depends... if your gil is too gimp to buy +DEX and +STR... and you dont have time to merit, then the destroyers would be the worst possible choice to make lol

ive seen this in action and was saddened TBH, the time put into it is not worth it, this was in ballista though where the 3x dmg cant proc. atleast in ballista i say faiths > these by alot.

maby my mind could be changed on them if i was to see them in xp, sadly the mnk on my server who has them ive never seen xp since he gots maxed merits ;; and the thing that really makes me cry is that hes on nin more than mnk at ballista now a days.

im personally going to try for scythe now after seeing these, they arent to great of upgrade over destroyers from what i hear, xp wise, and in ballista faiths are way better. scythe though has drain 1/4 hp ontop of ws and i hear it does 1k dmg usually on hnm at 100% tp which is crazy. + the haste it gives makes it super fast anyways. and yes i know this isnt scythe forums lol i just got onto ranting from being let down....

WTH ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT ???? and what can't proc in ballista ?? i think your a lv10 MNK whos regretting leveling MNK to 10 coz it took u long time and don't hit for 9999 DMG like FF7 and you can't use your game shark, so you decided to lv DRK to get Apocalypse from Jeuno AH (when you reach it). one word "Uninstall"

Is it true that the more you use Final Heavan, the stronger it gets? I'm thinking it must cap at a certain amount, otherwise it would be powerful beyond belief. Then again, seeing how much trauma people have to go through to acquire these, it sorta seems like a fair trade.
Hmm

to all of you who have been rippin the guy who said he bought gil on the last stage give it a break anyone who can devote 11 months to getting just one item deserves some kind of break and if you think he's some worthless @$$hole then lets see your spharai that you worked on for a year.

This is probably the best Relic weapon in the game for soloing next to the Excalibur/Aegis combo, but who's heard of someone having 2 relic weapons on one character. With these, and the gear combo I have, Hundred Fists basically becomes irrelevant. Black Belt and Byakko's Haidate give a 17% Haste boost, and coupled with the Dune Boots, let's just say I have a lot of fun. I was messing around with the Desert Manticores in West Altepa, hitting constantly over 200 damage, and with the insane Kick Attack bonus from the Dune Boots, Kick attacks are fairly consistent. With all the merit points you get from farming the ungodly amount of crap you need to get these, you should have a nice boost from your Merits. I used mine on Critical Hit, and with the Critical Hit bonus that the Spharai provide, it's impossible for even the best tanks to keep hate. That's the only real problem, but the enhanced Counter allows you to control the situation until the PLD can get hate back, if ever. The only way to lose hate with these is to stop fighting, and remove any evasion+ gear you have so you can get hit. Record damage with Final Heaven is 4791, but that was on the Boreal Hound, so that doesn't really count. It was a weak one anyways. I've seen Guillotine get over 4000 on Boreal Hound no problem. So to all you morons who would use something else over this, I will tell you right now; THIS IS NOT A WASTE OF TIME! Took about 11 months to get, and I didn't have to buy gil until the last upgrade, so I was fairly happy. For those of you thinking I am a severe gil buyer, who sends Garuda's economy down the toilet, you're wrong. The only way I was able to get this stuff is by being extremely lucky on lots, and having a lot of really nice Dynamis partners. By the way, the video is accurate for the most part, it's just much more impressive being able to see every frame, instead of every 5 lol. As for DoT, I can outdamage my static RNG buddy. We did a party total for a half an hour, and I did about 2K more than him, and he's no slouch. As for the fun factor with these, I get tired of the same WS over and over again, even though Final Heaven is amazing. The real awe-factor from these just comes from how incredibly hard and fast they hit. Beating the crap out of stuff is my favorite past time with these. ^^ Anyways, I hope that gives you an idea of what they are capable of, and don't give up on these! The last upgrade is the longest, but these are WELL worth the wait. Thanks for reading.

you can't just say, "It doesn't exist cause you didn't show us a picture of it."

not everyone has checked every single person on a server to know what pieces of equipment do and do not exist.

1. A 17% haste destoryer is still faster than 17% spharai . (Spharai 386, Destroyer 348)

2. I don't think critical merit have anything to do with x3 damage because it can proc on normal hit.
3. Lavish on Titan have horn, club, and is working on sword. Feather on another server is on her 5th relic.
4. I was already outdamaging post-patch RNG with destroyer.
5. Any monk should've already been pulling hate in lv75 exp pt from a PLD, you're sounding like you could've done it only because of spharai?
6. You don't really sounded like you own one.

Doesn't matter who you can beat with your Spharai, point is you didn't earn the weapon, and thus your opinnion doesn't matter. Put some gear that you actually worked for, then come face me in Ballista.

You go spend 11 months on one piece of equipment. Give the guy a break. He comitted 11 months of his life to a game, I'm pretty sure a little gil buying on the side to take away about another month wouldn't hurt.

And one more thing, people like you seem to criticize gil sellers for the prices raising. Yes, gil sellers do raise some prices, but guess what? People that really raise prices are ourselves. I'm sure you do it all the time. "oh look theres no **** in stock, I'll put it up for 5k higher than normal"

I think I've said enough.

Looks aren't everything though. I could care less if the WS looked liked a low grade combo. The real matter is the ammount of damage you can do with it. Yes, it looks like Howling Fists, but I don't think the mobs will be laughing when you hit them, or if you see someone with these equipped on your enemy team in Ballista O.O

ok ok... just to calrify some things... to add to the list of fully upgraded relic weapons... Cleen on Fenrir has V 3/4 of his dagger... (wouldnt surprise me if he's gotten 4/4 by now ^^)... and the RWS on Zebra flood are the animations, and what not (atleast i'm almost positive) but the damage is completely fake... COMPLETELY... and for the person talking junk about "Why dont they do much damage" omg >< ok bud... not only does it add killer +Atk... but look... just LOOK at it... it actually does more damage than any other H2H weapon that mnks can use (and they can use them all) AND... look at that sweet *** delay... mnk isnt all about one big smack.. it's about a bunch of lil smacks really fast... and if the person has bothered to get these he probably has a black belt + other crazy haste ****... so he's almost got instant 100 fists... this weapon's a god on it's own, i'd kill to see anyone wielding it...
