So i was leveling my marauder and I thought, hey i think it's time I get a new axe.
So i look online and see there's no better axes sold then the normal Weathered War Axe.
So I went lookin for an axe recipe, only to find out that every axe recipe (not only requires like 6 tradeskill classes) but they require an ingredient that doesn't even exist in game as far as anyone knows.
In order to make the Red Ochre Buffalo Leather Strap, needed for all the axe recipes, you need Red Ochre Buffalo Leather, but in order to make Red Ochre Buffalo leather, you need Red Ochre Buffalo Leather Dye.... yet the dye doesn't exist as far as any online site knows.
So far as I can tell there's no such thing as a better Axe.
Really lame, I guess wait till Retail or until someone magically finds this dye?
Lemme know if anyone figures out how to make a better axe and the ingredients required cause as far as I can tell, it's impossible atm.
(I think bronze axe "might" be possible but that's not better then the normal crappy axe, yet i bought the buffalo leather for 12k gil and it won't let me even turn it into the strap, even though I have the ingredients, so... i don't think making that is even possible)
