Back in a much simple time, back in the days when LOLDRGs started to echo through out the land. A flying blue blur and a traphic cone darts down from the sky. When COP was terrifying and you struggled with having a job that was deemed crap.



Those we're the days.

If you we're lucky you could get these.


Then when you finally got CoP, you venture to the great empire and slave away for a Mezraq. Then it gets bested by Thalassocrat and fay lance. Whew boy those we're the days. The mire was actually scary and creepy to me.

Even luckier if you could get Homam crap, Vfork, Black Tath, Z mail.
this was ideal, this isn't really what I had but what I strived for.
Askar aside there was also Ares, though Deimos breastplate never dropped for me. this was seriously the cream of the crop. I remember how much of a grind it was, having to have top attendance for some Einherjar shell that just ended up dying. Not to mention trying to co lead one which was a huge waste of time. I guess I am great-ful now with Abyssea. Years and years of work for some.


And now well

Maybe in less then a month if you are adamant about it. It was kind of sad we had the worst gear choices(not to mention UGLY) of all. Even full perle makes things look like a joke.

I'm kinda glad I am not wearing this crap anymore.
I seriously had no luck with Homam except the body/feet and the head(which I tossed 2 times.. stupid Zuchetto) Even after having a whole Omega pop pool to myself no dorps.

Though right when WoG was big I quickly traded up to Zahak's Mail/Ares Legs heh. Compared to how things used to be I am surprised people complain about current content. I mean 0/42 on Leaping Boots is bullsh*t, I'm not going to complain about going 1/11 on a Goading Belt lol

What did your gear sets used to look like?


Edit: Early 2004/late 2005.. AJ wouldn't drop and SH was 15mil ._.
I was stuck with AF Body/Legs/Feet until I could use Feral stuff, and I slowly upgraded to barone legs/feet and got an Ohat/AJ in the same day. Then went to a Mezraq. ***was rough, took me 28 Ose kills.. a BRD and a BST won lots over AJ... ugh ***.. finally on the 28th kill I got it. While fighting against RMT who wanted the whiskers..)

Never did get a good TP body for my DRG back at 75 cap, Askar, Aurum, and Nocturnus all eluded me. Felt bad man :(

To semi-contribute, this is what my BLU looked like for a while.



Though I got Homam hands not too long after feet iirc... legs eluded me for a while, Koggelmander eluded me until about the time Magians came out. Yes, those are Nash legs. Feels really bad man.

EDIT: Actually idr, I may have been using Flame Ring instead of Woodsman... I was big on pizza and Sole Sushi for BLU back then, so my acc was pretty high for the content I did as BLU. I know I was usually TPing in Strigoi after I got that, and I was wearing Tiercel at that point. Didn't have Acubens though.

Ixion Cloak reminded me of my old Black Cloak BLM (*** wasting points on Sorc Robe, no Dalm/Morri)... I think I was the only BLM I knew who actually used AF1 feet. They weren't the worst thing for sleeps under fire etc but I never saw others using them, idk why.

Honestly, I disagree with the original poster. I loved oldschool FFXI.
It wasn't about having all the best gear in 2 months, it was (in some cases) about spending 2 months to earn one good peice from a monster that required a linkshell and teamwork to claim and take down. (You can argue it was about who had the better bots, but people still bot in newschool abyssea-FFXI, so what's really changed there?)
Also, there were more things to do to obtain the needed peices; Salvage, Dynamis, Sky, Sea, HNM, etc. It wasn't a romp through one event (Abyssea *cough*) to get every peice you need.
And most of all, it was about feeling good about getting each peice of gear you worked hard to get. Instead of walking through port jeuno and seeing every other hardcore player in the same gear set you're wearing, because it's so easily obtained.

Take the goddamn nostalgia goggles off. Wasting two months in a shitty points shell for one item felt anything but good. And if those idiots had actually known what teamwork was, ***would have gotten done a lot faster. Better now when you can lowman most content and stick with a small group of people you trust.

It's not all nostalgia glasses, I for one honestly liked the game better back then. If I didn't, I would've quit when I played WoW for the first time. Isn't it funny I/others quit XI when it changed but not before? Months of work was what made playing appealing for some reason, it does sound really stupid in retrospect but why else would we have 400+ days in 2 years and then only a 100 in 4 years since?

It's not nostalgia goggles, it's the fact that I no longer even feel proud of my good equipment... ; ;
I'm not hating on the newschool FFXI, I still play, I just don't feel the motivation to work towards some of the peices of gear when I see them so often. D:

Don't get me wrong, I liked certain aspects of 75 cap. Horrible effort/reward ratios was not one of them.

Ahh early whm, loved it :)

I believe I remembered everything before ToAU came out, could be wrong tho. It's been so long lol.

I didn't get my AF +1'ed til after ToAU I think, and I didn't have an aristocrats up til like WoTG or something. Same with cleric's belt, I finally got a hold of one during the WoTG phase, possibly longer. I didn't get to use it for very long as Pythia +1 replaced it. And Blessed +1 stuff was way to expensive back then, so screw that. I guess the same could be said with aristocrats, I bought my nobles for 13,560,000 gil back then. I think aristocrats was around 20 mil back then. I didn't want to join a linkshell for it to be handed to me either lol.

Then again I was very into melee whm back then >.>; I guess I still am a little but I'm more into the mage part of whm now.
