Maybe someone can give me some insight here. I'm not hating at all lol, but in FFXI when you reached that certain level with that certain job you finally got to equip that leet gear you've been holding for like ever. This game I just ran past a level 8 THM and he was wearing Bronze Haubergeon. .. . . . ..wtf? 19 levels off from the optimal rank and his job isn't even on the piece of gear. To me striving to reach that certain level to wear that piece of gear was the great thing about FFXI. What are we striving for in FFXIV? **** I can wear level 50 gear at level 1. (yes I know it will be damaged in 2 fights blah blah blah). Just is there a purpose behind this?
