SE taunts us paladins by making items like the defending ring, and then making them nearly impossible to get >.<

impossible unless you belong to an HNMLS, and manage to fight king behemoth.. and manage to get the drop, which is crap, from what I hear.

Isn't that the problem with alot of really good gear? Why should the D Ring be much different? Oh, and I know some thf somewhere is gonna cry about this. Last night I do ZM4 and we murder every tonberry in our way. A Flickering Lantern drops, and we screw up who needs it and everyone passes.

Hurray for short bus party.

i think its sad that the best, or arguably the best, is still found in Zilart Zones what job that can equip an osode doesnt want one . . . maybe not war after aers but still. thats why things like defending ring seems so unobtainable, it drops off a mob that has a 3-5 day lottery off a 21-24 hour mob, although same could be argued with the dreaded tiamat . . . i want my gaitors

What's worst is how SE is ripping off most of their players with FF/KB/Aspi.

Seriously... a 24 hour pop is just retarded. The only ppl that aren't complaining are the ppl that actually do them since they're scared they'll no longer be envied by regular players.

Nail on the head. I dont know about other servers but I find mine has a lot of elitist idiots on it. They always trump up what they do, what they have done and how better they are then anyone else. The type that will scream from the rooftops "NA first, NA FIRST!" like it's a end all acomplishment.


I quit FFXI 2yrs or so ago, and coming back now, with ToAU out and all I can still see gear progression hasnt improved that much. It's kind of sad. I used to play WoW and every new place saw a lot better gear. I think SE is just afraid of sky becomming obsolete if they put in insane gear.

Yeah, I'm sick of SE making "cheap alternitives" that aren't even close to the original thing.

FFS I am going to college this fall for game programming/design and I already had more common sense than SE did with HNMs.

Well think of it this way, what is the time sink right now in FFXI? It's king camps mostly still. Ever since RoZ it's been king camps, that's where you get the really really good gear. Now they are putting in some alternatives but still, king camps supply a lot of the good gear still haha. I dont think it's SE being stupid but rather being lazy. They know you'll resort to camping those HNM for your item. Recently though it seems like doing a slight turnaround. I dont know if someone posted it here or not, cant remember, but someone said they are just getting us ready for the next expansion. They dont want us to just remember camping kings forever and never getting our drop. They want the freshest memory of ffxi to be when SE made thf attainable by all and all their other changes.

I can understand a 24h pop when only like 2 linkshells can kill it. However this is 2007 FFS. SE needs to get with the times.

Solution:

The NQ versions of the kings should spawn every 3-4 hours. Meaning the HQ versions will spawn once per day or day and a half. HQ King abjurations should drop regularly from KS99. The NQ kings in assault should drop the NQ king abjurations. A series of new ENM's should be added to fight variations of the kings with a chance of dropping NQ abjurations and gear, and a small chance of the HQ abjurations.

Come on SE get with the program.

Nope, from what I heard the ones on the 20th floor drop those new rare/ex gear sets.
