Why did SE give Idris and Epeo the same tier option as Afterglow weapons, but not actually give us an Afterglow? I realize that "ergons" are considered Mythics, in a sense. So why don't we at least have a blue glow? Was there some reason for SE to not give us a glow effect on these weapons?

If I'm not mistaken, their story is that Ergons were never touched by the moogles (trials) and thus don't glow.

Because they hate us. The real question is if the reason non after glow rmea's have harder trials when you 119 them because you are making them glow how come ergons which don't gain the glow still have the harder trial? They gain the same amount of stats as the already afterglowed going to 119 so why not that trial?

Yep should get a green glow, fits their origins and would look badass on those jobs.

Given how you don't have a "turn afterglow off" option I'm kinda glad Idris and Epeolatry do not glow! But that's just me.

Glow is a cool thing when it's one player out of 1000 that glows.
When everybody and their bloody mules is glowing everywhere it becomes annoying, not cool anymore.

Just my 2 cents of course.

Our dev team doesn't know how to add glow to them, so.... storyline. odin did it!

Since there wouldn't be any upgrade to the weapon, it could be as simple as the weapon moogle saying "Oh, we've been researching weapon glow effects. We have found a way to make ergon weapons glow" <moogle magic animation/cs> "Speak with Oboro, something something - kupo"

Trade your weapon to Oboro, he says give me 1000 beits (arbitrary number), wait a day, green glow. Green is a component of the RGB - Adoulin storyline is all about nature - so that seems kinda appropriate.

There is already a green glow existing in the environment, so all they would need to do is add some dialog and a quest. It all comes down to how important it is, and it isn't really a functional asset so much as it is neat thing.

I would not be surprised if this is the exact reason SE would give, verbatim, for why Ergons don't glow. "cuz lore".

Probably why Camate left the company, got tired of lying to us and dealing with their bullsh*t excuses.

I'd hope for more of an orange-ish glow myself, seeing as both weapons are orange. green would look weird as hell.

SE has a lot of options and routes to take on this. They can add a new quest or make a grand new story line to introduce a glow effect for these weapons. Real question remains whether they care enough about this game to release something so grand anymore.

We can get creative all we want, but its their business decision/model in the end. Although it doesn't hurt to suggest it. They can make it a long term project with the skeletal staff that remains on the dev team. Keep in mind, they don't listen to NA player base as much as the JP player base due to NA's crying too much over stupid ***..

Enjoy the time you have in the game with what you have. It's better than a lot of MMO games out there at the moment..(not graphically of course)..

Wonder if it is worth google-translating the request for Afterglow on ergon, see if you get any responses.

Why can I tell what threads are "Senaki-threads" before I even open them?
