In between school, work, playing wow, playing counterstrike, and hanging out with people, I'm still bored so!..
Choose one weapon that is not in FFXIV yet and explain what you would do with it (no "I would stick it...")

My choice:

1 Handed mace/heavy scepter
Class: Mace/shield tank with plate or chain armor. High defense with only holy buffs and some debuffs.
Dia
Cure
Protect
Stoneskin
Phallanx
All that jazz. Excellent soloer, but sacrifices kill speed for survivability; does however have some heavy hitting weaponskills. Used as main tank in endgame/party situations. On par with Gladiator for tanking, if not a bit tougher; while sacrificing a bit of damage.

Can rely on light armor types for magic stat bonus' + focus on piety/int for a healer build, or heavy armor + piety and vit for a tank build. Inspire by my old cleric in Aion shown below:

When I read "Choose your weapon!", I heard it in the same voice as the guy who says "Test your might!" in Mortal Kombat.

Also, polearm FTW.

I don't have any fancy class skills to back up this weapon (remember that thread where I said I was unimaginative? hehe), but I'd like to see a nice military flail appear in FFXIV. Maybe have 1-handed and 2-handed variations, so the player could use a shield if (s)he wanted.

Other thoughts of the top of my head: whips for Geomancer (I can only imagine how well SE would animate them), something like a heart for Necromancers to control bodies, war fans, pole (Sun Wukong?), dictionary has to make a return for Calculator.

I wouldn't mind seeing Mystic Knight return (apply pretty much any spell you learn as a DoM to your weapon), but you'd have to find them a special type of blade (does anyone have Scimitars claimed?). We'll probably see SMN return, but I'm hoping in more of a cast summons as attack, def, and (de)buff rather than as a pet class. That's about all I've got haha.

EDIT: Forgot double-bladed swords (think Darth Maul or Chrono Cross's Serge) and hammers (one and two-handed). Wouldn't mind seeing some sort of mage that can control weather, either (maybe that could fall under Geomancer).
