NameDay and GuardianFollow

I've read pretty much every thread search could find and the links in them.

I've seen the relations between Guardians, their elements and a few theories / experiences, however I've yet to find something with a small degree of certainty.

Has anyone figured out a more direct influence of either one?

I hear there will be a way to possibly change guardians but with a penalty, however what about Nameday? will it have some sort of influence like FFT? or is it just useless?

It's one of the things that has kept me on create a char screen for 1 day.

that and the fact I can't decide what race to be or the simple fact that I had to come to wrok >_>

Anyway any more theories or stuff regarding this will be greatly appreciated.

here are a mix of links I've found related to this for people not wanting to search and maybe compile the theories and personal experiences.

You can read about the days and moons in the ul'dah thaumaturge guild; there are books on the counter and there's tons of religious nonsense and explanation as to why there are 12 months a year and 24 hours a day, and the Twelve, the 6 elements and the Astral and Umbral and so on.

My character is born on the 3rd Astral Moon, which is apparently all about the Wind element. My Guardian is Menphina, which is about the Ice element. I have absolutely no idea how that affects me, however, but I'm going to go wild and speculate that I probably have a small bonus affinity to Ice and Wind elements because of that.

I recommend you do the detour and check the books out.

TY might have to check that out. with decoy char...

Some of the theories and experiences regarding guardians even claim to notice influence in drop rates of shards or guild leve bonuses.

and knowing Square I'm pretty sure there are also hidden bonuses regarding the combination of both...

from what i notice it grants some type of status of effect and hidden bonus to your character from which god you choose. not to certain on what all of them do though.

guess we'll have to find out as we go, probably someone will come up with a more in depth analysis, people in 11 always amazed me with how they worked to figure almost everything out.
