Hell yes they would. No way Anet would give us a weapons quest line with a reward like that. Those purples would look amazing on my mesmer too. :D

I'd almost wish these were purchasable due to the time investment needed to get them (and the monetary investment, I blew over 5 million gil just to craft these). The only good thing is the weapon can be customized to the stats I want (with the exception of Vit and Dex, those are standard values for the weapon) making it, in a lot of ways, the best weapon you can get for your character (with the exception of the top raid tier weapon, which is marginally better but has different stat distribution).

Cool. Sounds like the equivilant of Guild Wars 2's legendary weapons. Those cost astronomical amounts of gold and months of playing to craft too. Did you have to craft two swords? Or is there a wardrobe system in FFXIV and you reskinned the second sword?

Nah, the good thing about ninja weapons (and monk weapons as well) is that they come in pairs (we only have one weapon slot on our characters so they just made NIN and MNK weapons as pairs) so both were crafted at the same time. So they're the same in all respects.

I forgot to mention I could dye the weapons if I wanted to but I'd loose that slight glow they have so I opted not to.

Ohhh nice. In Guild Wars 2 they're considered two separate swords, so I ended up crafting the legendary sword and then reskinned the offhand sword to look like it. Same with all the other swords on my other characters. Being able to dye a weapon makes me jealous tho. Its a shame that glow doesn't stay with any color you want.

The only downside to it is that I only get one set of stats instead of two weapons with different stats (though the stats on the pair equal out to probably what I'd get on two seperation swords).

Meh, it's a good thing I actually like purple (though I'd prefer them in crimson). I know certain colors retain the glow but a lot of the off colors (like the Crimson one I want) don't. Not like it matters, come patch 3.45 they'll probably have a bigger glow in a different color.

Nah, in fact I can craft all the dyes available in the game on my Alchemist (and sell them if I want but there is no money in it and it takes to damn much time to gather the required mats to do so). Well not all, there are some you actually have to spend real money for (like the Metallic colors, Jet Black, Pure White, and I believe the Pastel colors require you to buy them for real money).

The one thing I like about SE is that they give you pretty much everything for free (though you generally have to craft or do some sort of quest for it) with the exception of specialty things likes some of the mounts (I own all the purchasable mounts with the exception of 1, can't afford it atm), NPC glamour sets, minions (which I own all of them with the exception of 3, 1 I don't want and I couldn't afford the other 2 when they were released (that will be remedied soon)), the specialty dyes, the marriage items (yea you can marry in FFXIV and you get a sweet freaking chocobo mount if you go for the best package (which I want so damn bad but sadly I have no one to marry, I have an obsession with the mounts in this game and I don't know why)), housing items (some special housing items that I have no interest in as I don't own a house in-game (though in a week I will have an apartment when they release it in patch 3.4 (though it's going to cost me 500,000 gil))), and the fantasia potions (allow you to change your characters gender/race/appearance).

It might be possible but I honestly don't want to buy another copy of the game just to make another account (like most MMO's the game is linked to your account (damn CD-Keys)). Plus the logistics would be a nightmare as the wedding is a huge celebration and you actually have to reserve a time to do it and both accounts have to be on at the same time (another problem, my PS4 version is linked to my PC account so I can't go that route). Meh, honestly as much as I want the chocobo it's not worth all the hassle (or money). My standard, draught (two seater chocobo), and 2 fat chocobos will have to do (yes I have two fat chocobos, a normal one and a white one with a crown (got it when I got my maid outfit)).

Oh nooo.. can the fat chocobos not fly? I'd get a fat one and name it Winnebago. If at all possible I'd drop food on people as I flew over them. XD
