Class Specific GearFollow

Anybody else want them to change the gear up? It just seems like anybody can equip anything at this point and the stat attributes aren't really geared to benefit one class in particular. I would like to see some CON specific gear, etc. but only if the inventory cap was raised because I would also like to be able to store/carry other gear to switch off.

The current gear is generic enough; I'm fine with it being free for all.

I want to see "class" gear bought from marks or earned from quests. I want a cool hat that shows my character has leveled THM. I'm fine with it being equippable on all jobs after, too. Just make them favour only the right job, or at worst, compatible ones.

As long as you can't trade it, it creates some kind of bragging right / envy and such that is important for goal-oriented players.

You get a cool Star-Spangled Subligar from R30 FSH quest and Woolen Sugarloaf Hat (Red) from R30 CRP quest. Both are Unique/Untradeable.

Marks, definitely. As it is right now, at least in the case of the Disciple of War/Magic guilds, once you've saved up the marks for the minimal amount of job skills/abilities/traits, you don't have any reason to earn any more. This can become frustrating when you have no choice but to earn them when choosing leves, too, due to the rewards available to you.

I wouldn't expect anything as epic as, say, the AF armor of XI from mark spending, mind you. But something you can actually get and use during your ascent to Rank 50.

My Rank27 THM with 55,000 marks agree with this :P

I don't totally mind the gear system since it prevents having to carry around a bunch of sets of gear (based off what many others have said) but I think higher lvl class-favoring gear or class-specific gear would be awesome. I know somewhere someone said that the gear being anyone can wear anything lets you tell the people who don't care or don't know what they're doing from the people who want to play effectively. But still, if I rank up one job and want to switch and rank up another, I don't think I'd bother switching armor if A) I were soloing and the class was very low rank or B) my stats were decent and my lvl was close to that of the original class.

It's not a big deal, but bragging rights are always awesome XD And I agree with lvl-requirements. It really makes equiping new gear like opening a christmas present!

yes please, I would love to see a lot of class specific gear. The fact that you can equip any gear at any rank is crap =\. Of course they'd have to increase or inventory too though.
