this weapon rulz. lol

It really does. I replaced this with my scythe that had +ACC, thinking it would miss way more. I guess with the update, +ACC doesn't really matter too much. :) I already have some fine +ACC & DEX gear, so this Scythe is far superior. Much more than I was expecting.

No it isn't. If we were to say slants or nips, now those would be racial slurs. The way the Japanese shorten everything they are more likely to call themselves **** than anyone else.

LMAO, everyone that replied to this and the original poster, are f*****g ignorant morons!!!!!

Might I suggest brushing up on some history, it's not hard considering the history I am referring to only happened 60+ years ago.

The word "Jap" was negative slang for the Japanese during WWII, they even made posters and fliers with the word "Jap" on it during WWII. It was used in the same context that "raghead" was used after 9/11, during WWII. Ever hear of the bombing of Pearl Harbor? Most of you idiots that posted about this, probably not! You probably think you know something about Pearl Harbor, cuz you seen the movie >.> LMAO, and I'm probably right after reading all your posts! Idiots!

And if you are all too lazy to study up on WWII how about this, go ask and Grandparent that either lived or fought during WWII about such things before you post stupid sh*t you think you know about.

Also, ever hear of the word "Kraut"? It was also a negative slang word for the Germans during WWII. But if someone calls me a "Kraut" do you think I'm going to compare it to the word "Spic" of today? No! Cuz I'm not an idiot! Learn the history of such words, before you assume you are the authority of such!

"Jap" and "Kraut" were popularized during wartime with their countries, i.e see WWII, such as "Raghead" was popularized after 9/11. Learn some history, it might increase your I.Q..

Also to the original poster of this, "Slant" or "Slant-eye" was used to describe Chinese workers, immigrants, and slaves. I have never come across anything to say that it was ever used to describe Japanese ppl before WWII. And "Nips"? I've never heard of that word before.....>.>

Sorry to everyone else for my rant, but all these ppl **** me off. I'm trying to help these ppl realize how stupid their arguements are, but what do I know?! I only grew up in the state with the most Japanese internment camps from WWII, grew up 2 miles from the most infamous Japanese internment camp from WWII, had 2 Grandfathers that fought in WWII, am a huge WWII fanatic, and am an amateur History buff......geuss from a pool of idiots from the US where 70%+ of High School grads can't even pass the G.E.D, and we are considered the dumbest country on Earth because of such crappy school systems that can't even educate their students on even recent history(obvious from these ppl's posts)?! I'm the moron for actually studying before speaking on such things.

I geuss I'm the moron for not getting my info from the movies or from second hand info that is as bad as their grammar. I geuss I'm stupid cuz I'd rather read and study from several different sources before I compile my own(but accurate) take on such topics, and actually learn something in the process.

Oh and also Americans are the Kings of the World when it comes to shortening words or phrases, for comfort, not the Japanese! i.e Internet abbreviations(LOL, LMAO, WTF, WWW. etc), Sports Leagues (NBA, NFL, NHL etc) etc. We have a short-hand abbreviation in every aspect of our language, and in every area of our language because we are lazy and can't take the time to actually spell it out or say it correctly anymore. Pretty soon our language, is gonna be nothing more the letters instead of words, because of how lazy and stupid this country has become. So get over yourself Ashtonf and the rest of you that replied to his post, get over yourselves as well, and learn something before you post and pretend you know something about the topic at hand!!!

You fail at life.

"Jap" is an offensive term. No different than calling a hispanic a "spic" for short.

Do me a favor, go to Miami and tell people there that you can call them spics because "it's just an abbreviation"

From what i have heard from these forums the term 'Jap' IS a racial slur, as it is what the media called them as an insult, and Yeah, JPs would call each other **** becouse its basicly the same as a black person calling another black person nigga, so now NAs call Japanese players JP in order to avoid insulting JP people.

(So you all know, I'm no Racist person ^^; i was just explaining ^^)

What about Porch Monkey? Is that a racist term? I don't think so, cos like, this guy's grandma used to call him that when he was a kid, and he was white. If we act fast, I think we can save Porch Monkey...

LMFAO, I'm with you on that. I hate humans as well, but only because they are wasteful, destructive, spiteful, hateful, weak-minded, and their unbalanced ways towards nature. But I do like some females and their feminine features.......but I can't control that, so I hate my unwillingness to cope with such impulses.

But I like bunnies.....................even the dead ones on the side of the road, that lost the battle with some lazy persons vehicle, cuz it was an inconvienance to slow down and let the rabbit run to the side of the road. Sorry that one was going somewhere but then I kinda got sidetracked, on the dead rabbit sh*t(I see too many dead ones driving to work, so it was easy to get sidetracked after I typed the first 4 words)

So does that count against me that I like females? If so then I fail at life. And fail at being a racist!! Dammit I suck at being a racist, stupid hormones!!!!!!!!!! **** the female figure in all its glory!! I am a weak-minded fool!!!!

I prefer the Mutilator and Tilt Belt myself, cheap too. This scythe may give 4 more ATK, but if you miss alot like I do (Elvaan), then its not worth it. It is a prereq for the other AF, so get it anyway.

Did this last night and it was way to easy. It was 40 Drk (me), 60 War, and 70 Drk. I popped him and he cast fire 2 on me for 303. War voked and used 2 hr and rampage for alittle over 1k dmg. The drk used guillotine for around 700 dmg. i ended it with my puny nightmare scythe. Extremely easy and i cant wait to use it.

I was at Jeuno tonight and met a cool Lv 75 samurai **** player. He offered to help with gil in return. We made a deal with $50k. He then invited me to his party w/ another lv 60+ ninja.No doubt, they killed him in seconds. As a lv 46 drk knight, the NM still too away 50% of my HP with 2 magic spella (Bio and Stone..i think). Hm...i think this is a good deal coz I will definately buy the rayen Scythe w/ $50k.

In my own personal opinion this scythe is ok but you may find The Mutilator a little better you will especially want the mutilater just to save for BCNM's as it is a nice lvl 40 weapon granted it costs 90k on Ragnarok

Just for the record, this NM is only as hard as your party is good. Mind you, an amazing group of lvl 20s won't be winning XD. We just did this for my Lvl 45 DRK friend and the party was simple.
DRK45/WAR22
BLM60/WHM30
RDM60/BLM30 (Me!)
Easy as cake for us. Drk spawned him after me and the blm buffed, then I pulled the Hate with Elemental Seal + Silence, and I used the PLD method to keep the hate (CURE!!!). Couple of melee hits from me and the drk, the BLM cleaned house with Burst (~850 damage) BlizzagaII (~600 damage?) and he of course pulled the hate off me, but he had blink so no one lost health XD. Quick death for him.

Edit: Hmm, sig is out of date!

This guy was nothing, party: 55 pld, 2x 43drk, 43rdm, 43whm, 43blm... he didn't cast a thing and hit like a sissy. He was down and out in 30 seconds, tops. The only damage I got was from Souleater but I used Blood Weapon to counter it, which wasn't at all really necessary.

Thanks alot you two. But this is a cakewalk compared to the later AF missions. I should have taken a picture.

I don't post much, mainly cause I do research on this site, but since I got this at lv40, (can't wait to use it, lv42 atm >.<) just wanted to let everyone know how it went.

My LS on Garuda just happened to be doing this quest for a friend of mine, didn't even notice untill my party disbanded after I hit fourty. Then I was all gung-ho for getting it right then and there. The party was composed of four, after the other DRK logged when he got his, they waited for me to get there. LV71 BLM Kyubi, LV60something RNG Artemas (Anon) and LV55something (Also anon) WHM littledemon all helped me.

Traded the cherry to the ??? and the yagudo casted some useless spell. At this point it was a blur the fight went so fast... Kyubi grabbed too much hate, and i had to provoke offa him. >.<
no worries as three seconds later, barrage pierceing arrow or something like that for 1700 dmg ^^ done and done!

The fight was definetly less then a minute, and the quest was extremly easy to get the leg work done, did it all in about half hour as a rank 5, and a teleport-mea (Amazing to find a teleport from bastok when needed ^^) anyway, good luck, and just get some high lvl help!

Party:
lvl 40 DRK / THF (Myself)
lvl 61 SAM / WAR

Just thought I'd put in my input to give some perspective on this NM...
My friend and I both get 300% TP, I trade the cherry to the ??? and he casts Fire II on me for 314 dmg. My friend vokes the yag and I use SA + Slice for 253 dmg. Then my buddy unleashes 4 WS's (Tachi: Jinpu three times and a Tachi: Kagero all for about 500 dmg on average.) and finishes with a liquefaction SC for 500dmg exactly. The entire fight lasted less than 1 minute and while I took a good bit of dmg, was easy as hell...especially if you have a lvl 61 SAM helping you. ^^

Yea pretty easy fight for us cept the two rdms died but they really didnt care, they were used mainly for healing, here was the plan and it wrks: start out by elemental seal and silencen it, then the drk vokes(going by this pt set up) and the mnk sets up for the thf, we started out by using shadow of death and shoulder tackle to do a sc and then the thf sneak attacked and trick attacked and used her 300 tp(heh i forget wich ws) at that point it was about half way dead so the rest is kinda a blur cause i was so happy we where owning it ^^ but yea silenced this this is a wuss

Did this a little while ago with my LS, so I'll give you an idea what the fight was like.

Our party was thus:

41/20 DRK/WAR
41/20 PLD/WAR
41/20 WHM/BLM
41/20 BLM/WHM
41/20 BLM/WHM
41/20 BRD/WHM <- Yay me!

I had heard that this guy was a piece of care from word of mouth, and I was pretty confident going in, having already completed several other AF1 quests with the same party.

We made sure to kill all the yagudo in the area before triggering him, just as much to build TP as to prevent links.

The DRK triggers the spawn, and the monster will intially come after the hapless darkie (the tank should have no problem voking it off at this point, however).

He was harder than I had expected. His job is BLM, so you ideally want to have him silenced and keep him silenced. This is hard to do, as if you're "level appropriate" for this battle, he should be several levels higher than you and quite capable of resisting you. His physical hits aren't anything to really write home about, and from what I gathered he drew from the standard "yagudo" bag of special attacks with things like "Feather Storm" and "Double Kick". That being said, they still hurt a good deal, and shouldn't be taken lightly. The REAL hurt comes from his high level AoE spells that he casts. I can't give a definitive list, but he did cast Aeroga and Firaga on us, and each did 100+ damage. Good news is that 100+ damage really isn't a crippling attack to a melee at this level, so if you can keep your mages out of AoE range (or ideally, the mob silenced) you shouldn't have too much trouble with this fellow.

If you have a level-appropriate party, some food, good gear, and a workable battle plan, there's no reason you should suffer any deaths.

I'm impressed :P It looks like you're the only one posting on this site who actually did the AF1 the way it was meant to: all the same lvl, around the lvl of the mob. Good job!

I used it all the way up till Vassago's Scythe. When comparing Bone Scythe and it, the attack was still 1 more than the Bone. And since they return the same TP I just kept the Raven because it also had the STR and INT. Barbarian has nice +attack, but what good is it if all you do is fan the mob to death?! Vassago's is the next step after the Raven in my opinion, after that either A l'Outrance at 62, for the low wait attacks, but is traded off with the absence of the +accuracy and base DMG, or wait till the Death Scythe at 73. So, Raven is a good scythe to use for a long time, up to you if you want Barbarian, Bone, or Demonslicer in between Vassago's.

the Scythe they are talking aobut is the "Raven Scythe" this is lvl 43, with the party you describe here you should be fine, but I must warn you I went to kill this mob with a lvl 53 whm and a 52 drk, this mob is difficult but we were sucessful.
Happy hunting
