    For an Arcanist (soon to be Summoner)? I've heard each of them are better depending on what class you're playing, is this true?

    This was the only place I could find with any information about the reason to choose one or the other two.

    This is all it really says and all I can find.

    The Maelstrom set bonuses have a preference towards Tanks (PLD/WAR), while The Order of the Twin Adder bonuses lean towards DPS. The set bonuses for The Immortal Flames certainly provides better stats for all DoM classes.

    Lame, I picked Maelstrom because it was my home town. :(

    Guess I won't be using this set very much haha.

    FROM WHAT I FOUND,
    the stats were exactly the same on all the gear, it was only a difference of ... do you like red yellow or black...could be wrong though.

    Thanks for that info, I also picked Maelstom at first, guess it's time to switch my Summoner to Immortal Flames. :)

    By no means is this 100% researched, but it's the only information I can find sadly so at this point it's still a gamble.

    Well we don't lose anything from switching I believe. So what I'm going to do is look at the top end gear from Maelstom, and see what the other ones are. And switch back if I don't like them or they are the same.

    I liked the Immortal Flames speech the best and that was my starting city, but I chose Maelstrom because I like red and pirate stuff. I don't think they are gear specific.

    I also chose my hometown of Gridania because it is by far my favorite city, so if I am going to be part of a GC in a certain area, that is where I want to be.

    From what I've read you have an option around level 25 where you have to finalize the grand company that you belong to. At that point you can either make the choice to stick with your current one, or change to another, but after you've made your choice it's locked in forever.

    I'm 33 and have only had one quest to choose which GC I wanted. There is something before the choice that takes you to each for a speech.
