Hey Hektor Warfield from Fabul here. Was reading some of the stats forums and reading some of the parse statistics. I guess first off I should say that if you are a Jack of All trades--- that is great and we love you people... but This post is not for you! Just saying that because I Don't have the time to repel every stat reallocation flame.
Anyways- while the servers are down I am just doing a little research. Stat allocation is new to many of us, and I look sometimes to ffxi stats to see a general breakdown of how they were assigned. I find it pointless to leave any stats at base. To kind of put it in perspective from my point of view, I main gladiator, but I leveled THM, CON, MAR, LANC to 20 for different abilities. I do see the need in some situations where maybe INT would be needed. Who knows. Anyways I looked up PLD stats at level 75 and boiled them down to a percentage on a Hume
now the only thing I do not have in there is PIE because I guess I wouldn't know what to compare that to in xi... Any suggestions here would be helpful. This could help us create more balanced. You will notice i left out AGI as well, and my logic may be flawed from doing so. I'm hoping that some of you number crunchers out there can help an eyballer in this logic. I just don't understand the need to creating a huge imbalance in the favor of one particular stat and how it would be helpful unless you are constantly reallocating stats. I personally (Read- personally) find stat reallocating a turn off unless changing jobs, as it kind of takes away from the unique-ness of our builds and how everyone can be different. Lets hear from the crowd!
