Though for higher tier content you will be expected to get an empy.
Be very careful with crappy vague info like this. If you make the DRG Empyrean weapon you are liable to be laughed out of Jeuno
. Same goes kinda fairly for SAM and DRK too, at least with the staggering resources to get such, for these jobs specifically, sub-par weapons past level 90, which could instead have gone into far superior non-Empy weapons like a Relic or OAT.
tl;dr anyone who tells you specifically to make Empy on DRG, DRK, or SAM is kinda retarded or at least misinformed.
There's a lot of that going around really. Empy is great for WAR and MNK (because it gives them a very good WS), people just try to extend that thinking to jobs with utter- to semi- garbage Empy WS.
Yes, the /DNC everywhere is probably for Dynamis soloing. Yes, soloing, with daily entry...
