A relic wielder who can't run AK...

kyuusei, I say this only to be fair, you are the reason I hate duty finder.

@Hathen
Be fair, we carry newbs through ak all the time, lol.

Hahahaha. Fucking AWESOME.

He's got a good point, if I'm forming the run I usually get to call the preferences out. I'm not one to complain about gear in regards to simple dungeon runs, but if we're doing garuda and you're in full AF armor.....we have a problem. Same deal with titan, don't bother without at least a primal weapon (preferably garuda's) and full AK armor (accessories are less needed but still preferred). If you have full AK gear then you should be able to afford at least a piece of good DL gear too.

If you have the AK body for your drg, don't worry about the dl body yet, though as a drg you may want some darklight before attempting titan anyway. Bombs can get dangerously close to one shotting you, so you may want the gear to survive an accidental bomb you didn't avoid in time. If you can win before getting any darklight gear at all, I'd say Gae Bolg would take priority, then dl armor as you desire starting with your lowest end pieces, then accessories. The Gae Bolg is 3 damage higher than then next best spear you can have which is garuda or titan's or the HQ Obelisk, and has better stats than any of the 3, so it's definitely worthwhile in pure damage,and given that you're a drg damage is imperative. Doing terribly basic eyeball math, I've seen that 30 strength is about a 10% damage increase, so keep that in mind when selecting gear upgrades (though this observation was made on warrior, and doesn't take determination into account).

I'm actually stuck with a hard choice to make right now. I still am working on my war for gear and such,but now that my drg is nearly full DL and has a Gae Bolg, idk if I should +1 it yet, or continue buying myth upgrades for my war. Really a hard decision :(

I may be there, depending on if I have to carry some guild buddies through some bosses in FFXIV. Hard to fight titan AND answer questions about IX at the same time.

It takes about 10 minutes to drop a primal. 9 possible weapons drop, and 1 is always guaranteed. Yeah,this isn't exactly outlandish to expect a play to dedicate a couple hours to getting a new weapon. If someone said relics only for titan, I'd get offended, but an ifrit or garuda weapon,those aren't hard to beat even with df groups.

In regards to datastorm.....wut? It's been 2 and a half months since official launch, and even at the worst level of 1 hour a day gaming, you should easily have a couple of pieces of Darklight gear and some AK stuff. If you're off leveling secondary classes and crafts, I can understand a tad that your current gear may be a bit underwhelming, but to insinuate that there's any challenge to the current end content that it's hard to have good gear is just terrible. At the end of the day, for an MMO, this is incredibly INCREDIBLY tame for a challenge in gear accrual and difficulty.

what is the principal problem with Titan? i'm a healer so i dont really know. i mean as long as everyone has ilvl 50 weapons it should be ok right? i mean its unrealistic to expect everyone to have ifrit or garuda weapons with only one drop per encounter imo.
The 1st part of the fight is a dps race when heart phase is going you only have a small window of time to kill it or its a wipe. You can be good and dodge everything but if ya don't got the dps its a wipe. That is the reason EVERYONE needs to be alive during heart. near the end of the fight its a dps race cause of the increasing stomps, unless you really geared it becomes very hard to heal through after a certain amount.
Way to make my statement seem cruel ;(

Yeah.....no.

Titan's initially not too hard, he just progressively gets more damaging and makes the last portion of the fight more of a dps race. He follows a pattern of attacks that at one point adds tumults and weight of the lands to, and he adds more as the fight ensues. It gets to a point that you can't outheal his damage, and just die. Equipment becomes a necessity to both survive and defeat him. A level 50 weapon on a DD is worthless honestly. Go do more ifrit and garuda and get something more useable. Hell, grind ak out and sell your tomestones for an i70 weapon if it's that troublesome. As a dd now and as a tank, I can safely say thaf if you come in with mediocre gear you're just making a decent run hard and costing people time.

So I picked up a warrior's cuirass for my war, and now have 7k hp again while using defiance in parties, and my heavy swings land for 120 damage a pop, with butcher's block upwards of 240+. My dragoon is also coming along well, just need a quick titan kill and I can go pick up my gae bolg. Hoping I can start doing BC again soon, cuz I'm definitely getting bored carrying newbs through ifrit, chimera, hydra, garuda, and watching them fail titan repeatedly.

Yeah, definitely going to go with STR. Currently my jewelry has a combo of vitality and critical hit rate, mostly the latter.

Praetorium is an awesome dungeon - great final area imo. I tried Dhorme Chimera last night, holy shit that was hard. Three times and no luck. I've encouraged everyone to start their relic quests, so we'll see how far along we get. :)

Titan HM scares me.
When you fight Dhorme Chimera, first thing you oughta do is pull it out of the cave and to the snowy hill behind where you start. If you put it on the hillside, you can essentially ignore dragon's voice entirely as it won't hit anyone below the chimera's elevation and the safe zone is directly next to.him, so everyone oughta be safe from it. Ram's voice is all you need to stop now, and that's easy enough for a bard or pld offtank, or even a drg if they're looking for it. The mages and ranged DD need to be aware of ram's keeper as that's the only other attack that may cause problems. If you're going in with a full group of people working on relics, I'd consider holding the limit break at level 3 for a healer limit as it can revive dead party members to full weakened hp, but if you've built a level 3 you may be close enough to bring a weakened party up to finish the job. Honestly the chimera is way easy, as long as you go to that hill I mentioned, just gotta be alert.

Sorry, the item you're looking for is called Keeper's Hymn, Kyuusei. It's 10,000 seals from any company and available to purchase at the starting rank. Also, dex is only for ranged and blocking with shields, so yeah, unless you plan on piercing talon being your main means of damage,dex is nigh useless for anyone not Bard or Pld.
