  3. People Refusing To Upgrade Gear for... VANITY????

I'm not even level 50 yet, and already in the low 40's I'm having problems with people and their gear. Just finished a Dzemael Darkhold run where the Paladin and Dragoon both were wearing lvl 30-40 white gear and refused the green and pink drops for their class because they liked the way their current gear looked. o.O

Just... excuse me? You wonder why you're constantly losing aggro, taking huge hits and running out of time and you refuse to upgrade your gear?

I've also noticed a lot of healers, bards, and dragoons still using the lvl 32 Brayflox armor, and at lvl 45 I can only say they're doing it for vanity

This game really isn't hard enough for it to really even be an issue. I understand the logic of upgrading perfectly and agree with your sentiment, but at the same time it's not a big deal. Now if this were the early days of FFXI I'd say PUT THAT !#@$ in the Mog closet!

What Ive read here is that the brayflox set is "good" until you get your af gear at 45. I dont know how true that is. Just relaying what Ive seen posted here a few times.

This is what happens when you cast away your vanity in favour of stats:

My Infantry Shirt thing from Brayflox lasted me quite a few levels, nothing I was getting afterwards had as good stats.

Brayflox kit will just about see you to 39/40. Maybe.

If I got items to drop every dungeon run, that would be super.

For pld at least Cavalry set is good enough until 45, then switching it out for AF armor.

HOWEVER. If you're doing all the dungeons, and an occasional leve here and there, you should be getting your hands on aetherial armor from the Mythril Cuirass set which is level 40. Especially the body piece. Cavalry Cuirass isn't very good after 44. There's Sentinel (44) Aetherial High Cobalt (48) and Aetherial Mythril (40).

Umm, when I leveled I used whatever free drops I got from dungeons ... and picked up no other items besides those. I think I'm still using a 27 belt at level 50. Not a big deal.
