I have not played the game yet. I get my copy in a few days and it was free so I though I would give it a shot. I could not find any information about weapon/armor drops. Do mobs drop gear or is it all crafted right now? And are there better quality items (I.E. common, superior, legendary)?

Thanks

So far...normal mobs do not drop gear. Pretty much the same as in FFXI. Completing guildeves can get you some nice gear drops...but nothing rare...but still nice. I think its too soon to tell what will be in store for higher level guildleves when they introduce NMs into the equation.

There are some armor drops from leve quests, but the vast majority of gear is crafted. There are +1, +2, and +3 versions of almost everything.

Aside from some mobs dropping lures for fishing there isn't a whole lot I've seen. However, there's supposedly the skull eyepatch that can be dropped from skeleton mobs. I haven't done this myself, but read that in order to get that drop you have to use Concussive Blow, maybe CBII on them and crush their skulls. Sounds pretty cool. Also makes me think there's other drops out there like that we haven't figured out yet.

Info on damaging mobs' body parts...

There are a bunch of items that are only obtainable at the end of faction guild leves. Like the onion gear. I don't know if this is what you meant. Like you go in, talk to an npc and he gives you some orders to kill the beast men at the camp, you go, kill them, go back to the npc and he's like oh man, you're so cool, here's your payment and gives you this pimp armor that you can get nowhere else.

Also, to unlock faction leves you need points that are given when completing normal leves. Leves are like quests.
