So I've been doing some Magian Trials lately. Mostly, for Monk (and *whisper* PUP) because you really can't keep up as a DD job using the same shitty weapon indefinitely. Not that Destroyers are horrible weapons or that I've dropped mine since finishing level 80 Taipan Claws. Or that I'm even sure why I'm working on some level 80 Barracudas. It's just when you're doing horrible things to a mob in a hands on manner weapons really matter.
So I looked at the Staff trials, saw "Kill 50 ##@$&(* in !@#@(*& Weather..." and thought, "FUCK NO!!! NEVER AGAIN!!!" after doing a kill 50 Goobbues with light-aligned element weather. Which consisted of TBH and Pashow [S] as my two non-Level Synced options. The former barely had Thunder weather in the game season I was trying to do this the latter had Thunder weather frequently, but holding all the Goobbues in the zone at 1% HP with an Ally of BLMs ready to destroy them with -ga3s and you'd be lucky for the spells to go off before the weather ended. I'd Hundred Fists and kill two if I was lucky. My record kills per weather event was 5 when all was said and done.
But then I was talking with a few people in LS and /tells and the stave trials didn't sound so bad. Sure, they'll take a while, but you get a bigger damage boost from them (or Cure potency/Macc boost) than you will from damn near anything else introduced to the game lately. Of course, I have to at least try this.
