I was at Revenant's Toll this morning knocking out HQ Cobalt Ingots on my Blacksmith when a WAR approached me and asked if I could craft him a better weapon. I'm pretty happy to do stuff for people, I never ask for gil for materia melds and such (though I probably should), so I replied yes. A quick examination revealed he was using the GC Lieutenant's Axe so the only craftable one above that is a Rampager (or maybe an HQ Barbarian's Bardiche) so I asked him for the mats: "I thought you would take care of that," was the reply back!? I explained I'd need two Darksteel Ingots @ 5-600k each and I didn't carry that kind of thing around or a bloody Bardich head, and suggested he may want to look into farming Ifrit for his next level weapon, and he just stood in front of me for 5 mins in silence after that as I continued crafting, I'm not sure if he was waiting to see if I would suddenly have a change of heart.
I'm hoping he was perhaps just ignorant or what was required, I found the entire conversation really odd.
