I've been wondering if SE would make a way to merge all the augments on the staves into a newer staff that has the stats it had such as the elemental Affinity+ DMG and so on. I thought it would at least clear up one some inventory this way

Do you guys have any thoughts about this?

More equip >> more mules >> more +$1 per account >> not gonna happen

I would assume this would be the thought process taken by SE. Not that they would state it that way though. They would probably talk about balance or programming problems.

I highly doubt it, i dont think se give a dam about our inventory space. They can make satchel and sack but cant make it over 80. They made it so we can mule more gear, so they just want us to spend more money on mules.

If they did, I'd actually make them all. :3 Just highly doubt that would happen.

Don't elemental affinities come with a penalty when casting a spell weak to the staff's element? o.o If so, you'd have a staff that grants nothing!

Wouldn't of believed it even if it said [Dev] behind it! Like SE ever listens to us <.<!

Seriously though, I think they should.

Not that it should be easy, after all these are trials and an upgrade this powerful like this should be just as difficult.

Each element has 6 different possibilities. Among these are the type we are after, but what if we want more than one element of this type? We would have to do another trial with slightly different requirements but for the most the same thing. We unfortunately loose an inventory space for this. To have a weapon that combined all the elements of 1 of the 6 possibilities...well you would just have to have done everything up to +3. No way out of it.

That's 8 staffs fully completed to combine into 1 staff, with a possible of 6 final staffs in the elemental group of each weapon type. I think that would be reasonable, as the majority of players can barely do 1 full trial without stopping for a few weeks in between.

I'm assuming he means a staff that simply grants "Magic Affinity +5" since the damage is added to the base and not a MAB effect. It would be nice... but its only a pipe dream, we made it up. Like the Boogy man! Pinochio! Mother Goose! Sh*t like that. Its a cute idea, that's all, cute, but fictional. (All credit to George Carlin for that line, thank god I found a place to use it!)

plus with the delayed casting time for every spell in game. madness

They wouldn't add new area's/abilities that take away the sam bandawgon! madness

They wouldn't add weapons that can compete/demolish some relic/mythic weapons! madness

They wouldn't increase the level cap above 75, then EVERY job could have convert! madness


...you get the point

I'd like to see them merge-able into dark and light aligned staves with the stats of the 4 staves you combined to make it. (for example, combining a dark, ice, earth and water staff with +4 afin. and getting a darkness staff with +4 affin.)

What about the fact that magian trials left off a bunch of jobs... BLU for example. Your idea seems logical but requiring jobs like blu to keep all 8 normal elemental staves would just be mean

Old discussion is old. They said they were going to merge the lv 51 staves, not the magian. Which means mages will still use their magian and everyone else can hop on the new Prism staff.
