You know what bugged the **** out of me in XI that I just now noticed they have in this game? Gear for a specific class, LV10 piece for DoH & DoL in this case, that require you to have a DoW or DoM LV20 class to complete.

They did the same **** with burning circles back in XI. You had some drop mage gear and had to be done with mostly melee because it had something preventing mages from completing it. Like the monsters have a resistance to magic or some retarded ****. Or maybe one that had melee gear but were best done with mages.

I mean what the ****, is it too much to ask that I be able to get a DoH specific piece with a DoH class? ******* balls.

The leve in question is called Wanted: Xha Viqqoh the Nibbler and the piece of gear is a Frayed Cotton Doublet Vest.

Those rewards are random rewards from all the faction leves. If you want to do the leves that don't involve combat, cycle your leves to reward Horn and Hand rep and then wait for that reward. The only issue with this is you will get just one chance at loot per leve reset instead of three, but it will be non-combat and city based.

He would need a DoW/DoM(And possibly a party, I've avoided all Battle faction quests so far) job to even have a chance of beating the leve which rewards you with an item made specifically for DoH/DoL.

Though, that is a Faction reward, so you'd have to obtain those 100 Credits from somewhere.

I do get the problem though, and know how annoying it is. In XI, some of that stuff(Spiked Finger Gauntlets is a good original example) was the best you could wear for quite some time, but had little chance of obtaining them(Due to no one trying different strategies) besides purchasing them from AH.

In this case, you do have other options, though it's hard to tell if you will get the full bonus from them. Cotton Doublet Vest is better in all (relevant)stats(And works for ALL DoL), but it is crafted, and level 14(Around 30-40k on Rabanastre now), compared to lv.10 on Frayed Doublet. Appearance seems to be the same as well.

That's actually really good to know. I had thought certain items were tied to a specific leve. Definitely going to work towards more Horn and the Hand credits instead now, and hope for a good reward someday.
