Augmentable iLvl 119 weapons!

I had actually asked in LS chat if SE was going to modify the Oboro JSE weapons when they did REM(E?) ones this update, and it turns out they did!
The Augment adds Accuracy +50, Ranged Accuracy +50, and Damage Taken -5%. I'd have preferred instead Magic Accuracy +50 in place of the Damage reduction as the Shigi has Enmity -10 on it to start with which doesn't make it look like a tanking weapon.

Obviously, the Ranged Accuracy had to apply to Shuriken or whatever ranged you're using, but I was glad to see the Acc+50 applies to both hands. I can't wait to try it out.

I beat the game!!

I've been back in FFXI for about two months now and tackled the Rhapsodies of Vana'diel Missions. They're a nice end piece that really ties together all the expansions' storylines pretty well and it's obvious that some thought went into planning them.

Much thanks to Cleverness and Ica for helping me down the final boss in the BCNM earlier. I tried to take some screenshots, but I think Windower is broken again ("Can't convert screenshot to PNG"), so I don't have any. Here's Cleverness seen with his natural baby chocobo headgear.
I'm going to post some more stuff about what I've been up to and how the game has changed since I was last playing it and various thoughts on it in a few days.

The most notable for anyone who hasn't logged in in forever, like me, was Trusts/Alter egos which are basically a party full of NPC helpers you don't have to level based off of the game's NPCs.
They make soloing pretty much all level 99 and lower content laughably easy.
