the rewards are basically cosmetic at this point, the most notable of which being a mount after I believe 30-ish days of questing. I'd put it off until you're a higher level, since the difficulty of them don't scale and they go from a huge nuisance to a joke

grats

Since it isn't really explained anywhere in game here's how gearing works at old level caps. Whenever you do an instance at a level cap (50, 60, or 70) you'll get something called Allagan Tomestones of Poetics. You can check how many you have by opening the Currencies window (by default it's control+C) and click to the Battle tab. You can then use Poetics to buy Ironworks armor and accessories from Auriana in Mor Dhona. Weapons work a little differently - you buy an Encrypted Tomestone and 10 Rowena's Tokens (Poetics) from Auriana and then trade them to Aelina for your weapon.

Ironworks gear is noteworthy because it's the best stuff you can get before gaining access to Ishgard (without spending money on the market board, at least). If you Augment it (by buying Carbontwine and Carboncoat from Auriana, then taking those and the gear you want to improve to Drake in Hyrstmill in the North Shroud) it'll be item level 130, better than anything the MSQ will give you until roughly level 55.
Besides, marijuana is far more harmful than steroids. - BlitzBomb

Is it worth getting anything more than a weapon?

I guess I'll probably try and clear all of the RR dungeons before moving on to the expansions anyway.

Weapon is definitely the best, but I'd just get the gear as you accumulate tomestomes.

LotM, have you beaten Ultima Weapon yet? If not, you have a LONG way to go before you get to the expansion.

Yeah it's worth getting the gear. You will get TONS of tomestones going through old level cap dungeon. And the stuff you get from leveling g up to 60 is only marginally better than Ironworks. Especially if you augment it, it will last you those entire 10 levels.
DPOblivion was far more determined than me.

Tl;dr for these responses:

Get the gear, but don't bother stopping what you're doing to grind the tomestones to get them now since the game will throw so many at you
