As some people have seen me around on Alexina, yes, I am that fool who still dump all my gold into a female Glory Ego Sword, my sword finally hit all 50! <yey!!!>
Now I can finally start saving gold to buy stuff that I wanted, and below is a brief story all condensed in one picture.

    That's just how photobucket has been for years now and why many people dropped it ages ago. Not sure why some still stick to it when there's better options out there such as Imgur.

    Thank you Namiri, I just tried using Imgur and Google Photo to replace the photo link above but the images don't show up at all.
    Anyway, here's the link if anyone wants to see it in detail.

    don't have pics because lazy but my spirit weapon was like a 2h sword (destroyed) and then a llb (destroyed) and then a wing bow (xfer b4 prot pot) and then a ring bow (xfer w/pot) and then a trainee wooden blade (xfer w/pot) and then a liberty saber. Oh and sometime when it was a ring bow I think I hit 50 social, maybe it was when it was a wing bow. I don't even know. It just sits in my inventory, waiting for the day spirit weapons don't suck. Capped stat trash can ftw?!

    So, I'll do a quick post here about it.

    Early on I owned an Ego tanto. I had actually trained it up to social 21 and enjoyed it quite a lot even though I never used it as a mage/alchemist. It was just a kewl ego to own. When Ego cylinders came out I was prepared and ready to change it to. Evaline became an ego volcano cylinder. Eventually I got a great reforge on Evaline, but due to the way alchemy works she was absolutely useless as a flame burst cylinder. Regardless I trained her to 50 social because I like the ego weapon system.

    When Phantasm came out I decided I really needed a good firewand. Realizing I had a level 50 social ego I decided to make a r1 firewand and ego swap it over. 20k NX later and I'm now the proud owner of a reforged Ego firewand like the rest of the losers.

    The portrait for the male wand spirit looks too kind to be lobbing firebolts everywhere, so I put him in a healing wand. But because of this I only ever equip my ego if I get medic duty in a dragon raid- I've been considering a transfer but I'd like to wait and see what a revamp has to offer first.

    Special upgraded weapons have all but replaced spirits entirely in today's mabinogi. I'm not sure if it's that they are easier to Max out or deal more damage in comparison (also you can have more than one), but egos right now just seem like a personal event-gem disposal.
    BTW why don't gems stack yet?

    Because the gems have varying sizes.

    I had a female Ego Claymore, then changed to an LLB (I think) before finally changing her to an HLB. She's close to hitting social level 40 while her other stats range from levels 35 to 44. Definitely my personal gem eater, and whatever other useless item I get from events and dungeons XD

    Very good for keeping my inventory nice and tidy :D

    I've been passively raising an ego scimitar, an elf-only sword. The stats weren't on the wiki at the time i made it, probably still aren't. Maybe one day when I hit 50 I'll add them. Level 32 so far, but unless an ego revamp happens I'm not thrilled about actively levelling it at any point. Got it when I was level 120 or so. So, thanks to being tricked into rbing into age 10 before hitting level 100 (end of the newbie support at the time) by someone who always used nx to rebirth, this was roughly two months after I started playing.

    If only egos actually were useful though. Even ego cylinder aren't as good as a tetra anymore. Like the only one worth using anymore is the firewand. I do love how easy they are to repair and that my double m.att firebolt max reforge makes her hit like a truck. (Granted DPs is still lower than lower than if I had casting speed reforge.)

    I have a Female Ego Claymore. Because I made her when the Ego Weapon system came out and Claymore was the best weapon.

    I told myself back then that I would never replace it unless they came out with Ego Instruments. I am still waiting.

    I accidentally destroyed my level 49 Ele 13(yes, 13) bow whilst transferring. My screen glitched for a sec, and it went Poof! Sent a ticket, and they cannot restore my bow nor my ego level.

    Made a Wooden Club Spirit Weapon. Don't use it for now due to other weapons.
