Considering the damage that a modern ranger could put out, some of us consider it a "heavy DD" too. In that regard, its incredibly important that any RNG who does content in old zones regularly (UNMs, Master Trials come to mind) having an Annihilator cannot be stressed enough. More important than a Fomalhaut (although you'll use Chrono Bullets for everything of course), way more important than an Armageddon.

These days ways to specialize weapons is the flavour du jour. Yes, there is a "best", but there are situations that dictate other attributes besides DPS at times. If you find yourself just loving a job, being relatively good at it (in the minds of others), and have the gear, multiple RMEAs WILL get used in differing situations.
With multiple REMs I agree 100 percent. Only guns I’m missing is DP and form. But after researching for rng chrono bullets for the win.

Gogo DP and Gastra! I’m rootin for ya Drakenv!!!
Thank you Taru taru :)

I've gotta say I fall back on my Anni a helluva lot. Its far from niche. Not to mention the ability to have a physical weaponskill capable of respectable Darkness skillchains on RNG is just wonderful.

In my opinion, the recommendations on weapons vary differently depending on if you single-box or multi-box. Yes, in party/alliance setups the best is the best, regardless of your playing situation, but a single boxer gets a hell of a lot more out of some of the more hybrid style or defensive style RMEAs out there, such as Apoc, Ukon, Tizona.

So if you ask someone who runs around with a pocket BRD for their BLU and never need worry about MP if Tizona is a good choice, you'll get a very different answer versus someone who is running with trusts. Or a DRK with alts who's always at haste cap versus one randomly getting haste II from King of Hearts when he feels like it, and god knows what songs from Ulmia.

Just saying the situations a single boxer finds themselves in change how they use some of these toys. Personally as a single boxing BLM I find great use out of my Claustrum for events like Nyzul to keep up refresh aftermath since that's how I farm tokens for mythics. So please, anyone reading threads like this considering their choices, consider how'd you use them.

I won’t look at Ukon til Ukko’s Fury is fixed... but moving on... I absolutely love my Tizona/Alsace Combo for BLU and It’s still your dominant DD option on literally everything EXCEPT a full-on Zerg (Full-On Zerg, you would use Tizona/Raetic+1/NQ)

Of course there might be situations where you’d prefer to use Sequence and Savage Blade instead of CDC Spam but in my experience thus far, when I’m on BLU I’m usually CDCing.

For THF, Aeneas/Twashtar is just plain brutal (I know you said to keep Aeonics out but I felt it worth a mention)

WAR does absolutely silly things with Chango... 2k+ Upheaval > King’s Justice > Upheaval for a quick Radiance and a very nice chunk out of whatever you just hit with it. Fair-Warning though, Dnot use this against Omen Bosses xD. As for REM, the Mythic at this current stage of the game is kinda dead? Bravura is a nifty Utility weapon offering extra umph to Hybrid sets and the undisputed highest Acc of any weapon for WAR (and all jobs if the Add effect lands decently) so if SE releases a new NM that we play hell trying to hit, Bravura will be a good choice.

As for Greatswords, please do not make Ragnarok. Right now, it’s beaten by a Raetic NQ pretty handily as well as some other Greatswords that are pretty easily farmed from UNM. Of course, make whatever you want but it WILL be a waste of resources at the present moment.

So far I have Tizona, Alsace, Chango, Ragnarok(Only use for Lock style at the moment), Aeneas, Twashtar, aw well as Aegis but that’s PLD stuff.

To think all it needed at 75 was Refresh+1 to be useful. Refresh +3 now even at 119 would at least give it a use.

eh, of my gun collection Annihilator has definitely seen the least use, but I love my crit/camouflage build and Armageddon. one of these days I will get around to finishing Gastra to complete the marksmanship collection.

hybrid and Ukonvasara? are you sure you're not confusing it with Bravura?

Ukon is more of a weapon for amnesia, or when you start with 3000 tp and fight last longer than 2 min but ends in 3 min.

I actually almost did armageddon over death penalty, seems super cool for shooting! I melee most of the time so I figured it would be a little wasted

Death penalty is certainly more useful for cor, although if you dont have aeonic, your pov may change a bit....

DP and the way the math works on magical weaponskills like Leaden Salute is just freaking broken these days. I love my Arma, its' without a doubt my favorite ranged weapon, but no way I'd consider it before a Death Penalty. The ability to be a support job in an event like dynamis and just oneshot statues left and right is just invaluable, and post wave1 boss oneshotting with Arma becomes harder.
