Hello All:

What advice would you give to a returning player who before hand only had played until before the ToAU release. Who is now playing a new char leveling SAM, but thinks WAR sounds much more fun/personal play style focused (to them)?

Is the gear reliance for warriors on par with other jobs or is it steeper? Do I need a REM weapon 100%? Or are there other paths? If one is needed and with the change to not needed floor 100, how easier is it now to make a Mythic? Also what the hell is AM3 (aftermath 3)? Thanks guys!

If you want to play warrior and be competitive, your gear needs to be pretty top notch to be competitive with other jobs. REM is not a requirement, in fact ukon/bravura are pretty outdated at the moment. Conq remains the best GA by far, and is the best weapon when skillchain damage/potential is taken into consideration. Macbain with good augments spamming resolution is now the strongest option for warriors. But, reso has shitty ws properties, and with the skillchain/magic burst trend, it's something to be taken into consideration depending on your party setup. As far as the difficulty of a mythic goes. A majority of the assault/nyzul portion is soloable now, there are lots of einherjar shouts everyday, and salvage is soloable. If you were to solo the alex portion by farming salvage it would take over 200 days and/or runs. Otherwise, if you have means of earning money (plenty of ways to do it atm) alex usually sells for 7-8k/each so your overall price would be between 210-240m. So it's really just a matter of a little patience and a fair amount of grinding various tedious tasks. As far as discussing warrior, and a good background on the job, there is this thread:War Guide
Hope this is helpful!

Edit: AM3 stands for Aftermath Level 3 For mythics, this means 20% occasionally attacks 3x, 40% occasionally attacks 2x.
