Love the idea, but i don't love the choice of theme. None of those names resonate with me at all. There's nothing readily familiar to place it with the weapon type. On the forums, I won't know a kumbaya from a vrasicle.

Why insert a crash course on religion into a video game? Japan has Buddhist roots so why does Hindu get special treatment? Just by playing through Great Crystal you automatically get exposed to Hindu terminology so why add more?

I agree, I wished they went with actual FF weapons, like the Relic weapons or Mythic weapons from XI or something. These just seem so off to me.

Yea I don't know why they did this either, Shikari is also Hindu, i would have prefered Hunter.

Buddhism itself has Hindu roots, and Shinto is more prominent in Japan than Buddhism.

Relics/Mythics/Empyreans from FFXI definitely would have been a more sensible choice.

Because the game doesn't cater to the lowest common denominator of gaming.

Oooohhhh education so scary ooooohhhhhh

Names still suck for final weapons though would've preferred something else but it's just a name so it's not like I really care
I just wanted to raise his affection, NOT have him lick my nipples

well these are the same people who changed:

Lancer/Dragoon - Uhlan - although no jump, so understandable for no Dragoon name
Thief/Hunter - Shikari - although no native steal, so understandable for no Thief name
Samurai - Bushi
Red Mage - Red Battlemage
Time Mage - Time Battlemage

are you really surprised lol.
