So after 3 months and 2 full sets of Darklight grinding, I have one of my retainers nearly full of WP/AK gear and primal weapons. Do you guys just toss the gear? I mean, most of it is worthless sidegrades or downgrades and quickly replaced but I just can't bring myself to just toss it or turn in for seals. I guess I'm a collector - I had tons and tons of AF2 from Dynamis in XI that served no purpose. Plus...vanity slots! I don't know what to do.

Or....turn it into the Grand Company for seals :p That's really your only option at that point, you still benefit.

If you're capped on seals, you can buy dark matter for repairs or buy the crafting/gathering manuals (unfortunately you can't have more than 1 of each). Or you can wait till Tuesday and buy a bunch of stuff for the housing few can afford.

I don't think it's all useless. The WP/AK gear is good if you're still grinding out a set of DL gear (on a new job), unless you don't plan on actually using the job you're gearing. In that case, I would just toss what you don't want. Or keep it all in hopes that they'll put a mannequin in a future patch and then you can dress it up in all that AK/WP/Relic weapon stuff. Yea...don't throw it away...keep it for that.

Don't the 2.1 notes say something about being able to trade or sell previously untradeable items? Maybe we can start putting them up on the market boards.

You can actually hold three of each, you just have to move one to a retainer before buying the next one.

When you upgrade to AFv2, you may want AK gear for the pieces that previously took up two spots.

Example: Going to AFv2 body for PLD and Hoplite Head is better than Darklight Body until you have a replacement for the Hoplite Headgear.
