So I'm leveling a Lancer, and it's about time for me to have a new weapon so I head to the Market Wards and see what I can find. The only thing in stock is 30 ranks higher than I am and costs over 100,000 gil. That is obviously not happening.
So I take to the internet in search of the seeming mythical rank 10+ lance. I find a Brass Spear and take a gander at the recipe. The materials don't seem like that big of a deal, but it says I need Goldsmithing skill 21. That is twice what my Lancer is.
I know there aren't traditional weapon shops in this game, but is it really necessary to level my crafting skills so much just to get a new weapon? Is there no other way around it?
I would prefer to spend more time killing and less time knitting and forging.
Any advice would be appreciated.
