I had this once, befor i quit over 3-4Years ago, Its one bad weapon! I used it on my BRD for kicks, then worked on lvling my RDM when I quit, biggest mistake i ever made! Now im happy that im getting right back into it right now.

Got this today! It's an absolutely stunning weapon, I think I now gain TP about ~30% faster. Double-attack often procs 2-3 times in a row. Combined with Double-Attack-Trait from Warrior it's awesome. Really, a definitive must-have for all jobs that can wear it. :)

I've had the sword for about a year now when I finally noticed the ATT on it. I had my Pluto's staff equipped and my attack was 143. Then I equipped the JoyToy and saw my attack go up over 100 points. It was then 269. @_@

I realize it "occasionally attacks twice" which is an insane amount. But I never knew it actually boosted your attack this much. Is it a hidden stat that's not really talked about or is that how it attacks so much and it's just assumed we all knew it?

OMG its finally over, after about a year a randomly camping this thing about once a week i finally took 4/5 days to do nothing but try and get this. Started on a Thursday and said if I didnt havce it by Sunday night well then so be it. I had a few friends camp it with me thu/fri just to really get the TOD while they broke latents. And then friday I finally had a capable party of 5 to do it and I was using a stop watch to ready the party at 16 min intervals to ready to claim and low in behold with about 15 seconds to pop a loan RDM runs in and charby pops right on her head. I'm like you've got to be kidding me. She kites it for about 12 minutes when finally the other mantra pops and she gets a link. She handled it pretty well for about another 5 mintues and then got stuck when charby's gravity didnt land. The very second she dies her party shows up to the second. And with our DRK zerging immediatly and we lose stun our blu/pld which could have very easily tanked it with 600 defense+ gets tanking out by TP moves. And we lose claim and I lose my chance at charby :(. 8 Hours later Saturday night ,Once again there to get TOD, I get it. So sunday morning comes at around 8 in the morning. Once again another capable party charby pops on 3rd window and another rdm gets charby presented to him right in front and charby aggros him lol. So now I've got one chance left so my LS finally takes it upon themselves to get me the is sword. I come down there to find about 25 people from 3/4 LS's and figure its over good ridance. But my LS shows up so were about 10 strong at this point. THe room is so crowded you can not even move. 2 hours into window charby pops right on front of other LS's nin, but he provokes to fast and gets stunned, and low and behold I got claim with DIA!!!. We zerg his ass and the joytoy is finally mine. Thank you so much TGS and the following people

My husband Pryuss on ramuh server Duoed Charybdis with a friend Cjackson to get his joy toy on 1/20/08

Pryuss 74DNC/37NIN....at the time Galka at that
Cjackson 75BRD/37WHM

Fight took about 2 hours Cj also died at Chary 80% health remaining and made a full recovery w/o even losing stats from mambo. So all you haters on Dancer Try it before you knock it.

I myself got quite lucky about a year ago when my friend Legato ( 75rdm/37nin)who is an amazing Rdm on Fairy server sent me a tell and said " yo man Chary is up."
He said there was only a little taru running around and asked if I wanted it. I ofcourse said hell yes and took off on the way. He sent a tell to his wife Yunalyn (75Whm/37smn)and she came as well followed by my room mate Magnificent pest (47Brd/whm)who originally got me started in this game. I headed to the grotto and got there just after Yuna and we pulled it. About 10 minutes later Mags got there and gave some much needed support. About 25 minutes later and 2/3 of the NM's health we wiped... lol and Chary aggro'ed the little taru who kited it all the way to the zone. We thought we were done for sure. Yuna had reraise up and we began reforming. about 5 minutes latter and just as my weakness wore off Chary was back and we buffed Legato for the tanking. 35 minutes later I was on my way to altep going after my "Savage Blade."... Thanks you 3

the best way for you to get tod of him is to camp it yourself bec mnost people won't give it to anyone that in there ls or that not going to help camp it wth them. i know bec i am lvl 75pld/37war and it took me over 2 year to get this sword. bec you could be there for 10 hrs and have someone out calm you and it take really goo ls buddy or good friends to stay that long.

Anyone else ever done this? Seems like it might be possible with the blue tanking and enough evasion gear, warm up, actinic burst, evasion bonus from screwdriver + hysteric barrage, and I guess the right +agi spells equipped? I guess the red mage comes along for blind II, paralyze II, slow II, etc. Really curious about how well-equipped/merited you need to be to pull this off.

After a while of trying to Charybdis i got really frustrated because i was just totally unlucky i wiped with 2x nin and a bard and rdm and another time with a bard and a thief and then a nin thief and bard. I had told myself i was goin to take a break from him. But today i was informed that Charybdis was up and unclaimed. I immediately told the ninja to stay there and watch for anyone else to come. I found a thief and a bard. I looked for the thief and bard for about an hour i was very anxious but the nin told me not to rush. I did not rush and i found that it benefitted me. I set up the pt as whm bard nin and thief( me as 75war). We went down and we buffed up. 2x mambo for thief the niwhen n would go in to take hate so thief could sata for a little extra damage. thief tank was doing perfectly didnt get hit that often when he did get hit whm popped up and gave him a quick cure 5. The trick to this is to watch for his Cross Attack and Maelstrom. Cross attack has one shotted my tanks before so always be on your toes with mambo and cure. I was so upset about loosing Charybdis so many times i actually went in and DD him even though that could have ended up with a death result. It took a little bit of time to kill but the thief never went below 600 hp. I got the sword finally thanks guys.

Thanks to

This guy is way to easy, just the waiting that gets to you. This is how I got mine.

I was sitting in SSG talking to a friend about Chary, he says his friend killed him not long ago I asked him for the ToD because it was early in the day sort of he said he couldn't tell so I was sitting in SSG for a good while with only my sky and dynamis ls on me.

Around midnight a friend from sky ls comes down to help me as whm/nin so we're goin to town on the mantas for a few hours and we get into a debate on how to tell if his window is up, he says if 2 mantas are in there it's window is up but I go no if there's one in there and 1 out of the door the window is up so around 1am we only see one manta pop i open the door and go "see" we kill them. The repops happen, then he says he's gonna go back to town after the last set. Which he does. I have 2 watches running on the times of the mantas deaths, they dont respawn after the time is up and I'm thinking huh, so I go out of the door where these jp players were killing a NM for a lance.

I ask them if any of them speaks english one says "A little bit" I try to tell him the window for chary is up but it was to hard so I run in I see Chary sitting there I get the jp go in and showed him he goes "I see" then he warps out to get more people while the others are still there.

I'm thinking what the hell I'll get my friend to get his friend to come help me so they come. I switch to my dynamis ls ask for a brd and he comes, I see my friend who is on as brd to come as nin he goes back switches to nin they all head over.

My whm friend and his friend as nin get there before the brd and other nin they wait for the other 2 they go in the brd aggro's so my friend and his friend run while letting them kill the aggro's by now I'm dead trying to hold Chary outside of the door and I see the jp players come in I said damnit.

About 1 minute later the 2 come down run in claim chary, the whm comes out to raise me we go in to help the nin. By the time nin and brd were down I was unweakened full healed with almost full mp same with whm nin took about 500 dmg tops. The nin and brd didnt know which way to go so I go out to get them by the time we get back Chary is at 65% with the whm still almost at full mp. The brd used eva songs and it was over for chary.

Honestly you do not need a brd for this fight.
Finally got mine

I got my Joyeuse on April Fool's Day. Thanks to:

Chemius (RDM)
Saturna (BRD)
Kestrel (WHM)
Decious (NIN, my brother)
Bobar (SMN, played by me, but not my main character)

I decended upon Sea Serpent's Grotto knowing full well that Charby's window had recently opened. It was midnight, and the place was surpisingly empty. I walked inside Charby's room, and a tiny group of people had amassed. They all seemed AFK, except for a thief, who examined me. All the placeholders were dead.

My brother promised to help me get a Joyeuse, but he was in Sky fighting gods. I figured I could hang out in Sea Serpent's Grotto, just to make sure no one else killed Charby while I was waiting for my party. His window had just opened 15 minutes before I got there, so I assumed there was no way he'd pop before my brother arrived. A PH popped, so I started killing it with Fenrir.

Something strange happens to me every time a NM spawns. I get a gurgle in my stomach, and a moment of clairevoyance, as if I know without a doubt the mob I'm hunting is about to pop. Off in the distance of Charby's cave, I noticed another Manta mob spawning. It didn't stick out particular well, and I couldn't read its name, but I knew it was Charybdis. While Fenrir finished the PH i started to kill, I ran over to the new mob to target it. Sure enough, it was Charybis.

The thief had to have known as well; he had checked my not a minute ago. So then it became a race between his back-up and mine. Sadly, within minutes, a brd and mnk enter the secret door, both friends of the thf. They claimed Charby, but the fight was doomed from the beginning. The thf was knocked down to 50% health, and the mnk acquired a link from the newly spawned Devil Manta. The brd took too much hate, and Charby made short work of him. The thf didn't last long after that. Charby then finished off the weakened mnk.

My friends were fresh out of Sky and on their way. Other people showed up: a pld, a rng, a sam... No party set-ups that traditionally work on Charby. My brother tells me he is close, so I claim Charybdis with Carby. Everyone gets there and we go to work.

There's always a scare in the first 15 seconds of fighting Charby. Without proper debuffs and evasion songs, he will just go to town on the tank. My bro gets knocked down to 400 health in the first 5 seconds, but we bounce back quick. It was overkill for sure, though. Smn work extremely well on this fight, as they can do hate-free spike damage, and adaquete buffs (Eva +, Acc+, Stoneskin).

This sword is awesome and for many jobs as well. Thus theres obviosly a huge need for it, especially on sylph. Personally I know over 15 ppl that need it including me. I think there should be some kind of waiting list or something, since its 100% drop and spawns at least 2-3 times a day. Idk, just a thought, camped this about a year ago and back again, gl guys ^^

I was playing around with my Joyeuse as 71 PLD, tanking in a pt the other day. TO anyone who doubts what this weapon can do in the right hands... I took a screenshot of a short span of the log in the following link: http://img3.freeimagehosting.net/image.php?0933021766.jpg I'm Ryujistorm (the Paladin with Joyeuse). You have to really examine the log to understand it all, but if you do, you'll notice I"m attacking SEVEN times to the Warrior's ONE (GA) attack, and completely outdamaging him with DoT. The only player that came close to my DoT was the Dragoon, who had excellent gear and was using sole sushi. IN fact, all the DD's in the pt were using sushi of some kind, but I was only using Meat Jerky since it's all I had on me at the time (100gil from npc's in unlimited supply). I wasnt using any FANTASTIC gear, just some PLD AF, Ohat+SH(both for ACC), and Dusk Trousers. Also note that I wasnt TRYING to be a DD, I was just trying to be a tank and hold hate against 3 other Melee DD's, and felt I was doing a very good job of that.

Now, I KNOW theres going to be LOTS of haters in reply to this, saying this is wrong, or that is wrong, or you shoudlnt do this, or that, but come on... THis is just meant to be interestign info to see what Joyeuse can do WHILE tanking... nothing more, nothing less, so chill out, and enjoy the little tidbit of info, and decide if Charybdis is worth camping for yourself :) Anyway, here's some numbers based on the SS in the log:

PLD/WAR = 45 48 43 43 43 43 = 265 (Number of attacks on SS, SEVEN, counting one miss)
DRG/WAR = 96 + 123 = 219 (with excellent gear) (two attacks in SS)
WAR/NIN = 74 from one attack total (greataxe) (One attack in SS)
PUP/WAR = 41 + 28 + 41 = 110 (H2H) (clearly made a double/kick attack here) (3 attacks in SS, using H2H, so always at least 2 attacks)

Just learned ssome fun facts about this weapon

This sword is named after Charlemagne's sword, Joyeuse, which translates to Joyful. According to wikipedia, the Joyeuse was forged to contain the Lance of Longinus (the spear that pierced the side of Jesus during the crucifixion)within its pommel. Charlemagne used sword to behead the Saracen commander Corsuble, as well as knight his comrade Ogier the Dane.

Good times!

Hello, im not to accustomed askin for help here but I'm in need of this weapon badly ; ;

Garuda Server, Name Kazume

Started about a year ago camping it for my BRD (yeah hardly a job that needs it but so many have one so why not give it a shot XD)

After about 3 months of ToD's and getting outclaimed, plus sometimes I would have ToD and there wasnt anyone free or willing to come help out, so I gave up at that point.

Flash forward ToAU release, got COR to 75 eventually and am now trying to camp this for my COR since it's an awesome TP weapon for the job. Almos every COR at 75 has this and I even saw one with it and of-handing a Phantom Fleuret O_o...

Needless to say i'm pumped again to try and get this for myself ^ ^

But once again, there's either not enough help online, I get outlotted (people who know me know that i lot on occasion under 200 consistently... ) or when everything seems to be perfect (i.e.: im only one lotting, Full PT with an alliance sometimes, etc.) then the obvious happens,.. someone else claims it and kills...

Add to that I cant seem to find a NIN willing to tank it for me on occasion (I have BRD and COR to 75, so the support is there, no excuse about not having either job to come help ; ;)

Either that or people aren't psyched about the Idea of a COR getting an awesome weapon... I don't even know the reason anymore, atfer three more months of no sword, the help just isn't as frequent as it used to be ; ;

Point is i'm trying yet again to camp it and as you all know, the week of 3/11-3/17 is break time from classes for most people, so I'll be busy getting ToD's again and if anyone can lend a hand i'd greatly appreciate it. Also if anyone can help me as of today up until the 17th I can look into taking time of from LS events to come and possibly get help with the sword.

The LS i'm in has the rule "Your ToD your drop" but at this point I dont care who lots as long as i'm there lotting with you..

(maybe that's why they wont come... I usually have the ToD that I worked to get XD)

Total time since I began camping this is about a year, actual time at the site is about 3 months on BRD and 3 on COR so half a year O_o and I know people that get it way quicker than that ; ;

anyways im usually gonne be there most of the time starting now and most of my off time there next week since i'm on break ^ ^

any help is appreciated.

Edit: (Added name and Server info XD)

Honestly, PLD doesnt help much in a Charybdis fight, and in fact can make the fight much more difficult if they decide to melee it... Charybdis hits WAY too hard and fast for a PLD to tank him, especially only a 70. If you have someone else tanking, and you're meleeing as PLD, then you're giving it lots more TP< and charybdis with TP is VERY deadly - this is how alliances of 18 wipe to him when groups of 3 (RDM BRD NIN or THF) can easily take him out without any trouble. Since PLD does get Two auto-refreshes (trait and Parade gorget), you coudl equip Crow gear, and hang back and be a support/healing job, but I HIGHLY advise against tanking it or meleeing.
Nice

wow, it's not very often that equipment ACTUALLY matches the image lol, i like that this sword looks like it does in the picture, its cool!!

lol, if you want a good example of how equipment is wrong compared to pictures, then just buy a hypno staff (only 1k on sylph) the image is blue and kinda looks cool, but the staff itself is one of those boring crooked sticks :(

Well, On February Fourth, at 12:20 AM (Eastern Time) I finally obtained my Joyeuse :D

Set Up: - Bismarck Server (By the way)

Chipsahoy - 74Nin/37War (My sexy Cookie-Taru)
Saturna - 73Brd/36Whm (Our Favorite Mithra ^^)
Chemius - 69Rdm/34Blm (Scully! <3)
Cenni - 70Rdm/35Whm (Rofl, We'll get you one too, soon)
Chaddax - 70Whm/35Blm (Your almighty Taru-MP Pool ;;)
Kossori - 71Pld/35War (That's me ^^)

The Story:

Well I woke up on a Beautiful Saturday morning (Around 10-ish) to log on in the deepest regions of the Sea Serpent Grotto, I was there for the ToD. And Whaddya know? An hour later, Charybdis Pops. I get the ToD, 11:30 AM (Eastern Time).

Fast-Forward 8 Hours. Chipsahoy, Saturna, Chemius, Cenni, and I are all chillin' down there, taking down place-holders, and we seemed fairly confident (Seeing we were the only people down there at the moment). Three Hours into the Window I see a familiar Galka (He was there getting the ToD with me earlier). I thought "Oh no big deal".

Another hour of killing Place-Holders, and I see a swarm of Teal-Linkpearls coming into the room. "Competition ;;". They outnumbered us, and after they had come, they literally claimed every placeholder that spawned. Every. Single. One. Our little party of friends were disheartened. "No way we're getting Charybdis now ;;".

But... When it really mattered, when Charybdis finally spawned. As I (As well as everyone else, I'm guessing) was fumbling with our Macro's....

Saturna! Our FAVORITE Mithra managed to Claim Charybdis with a quick-draw-Dia!

Half hour of fighting later (We were being cautious, and we got an Elemental Aggro that I had to solo). Charybdis was down, and the Joyeuse was mine.

Help get me a Joyeuse :D

It's good for PLD for the same reason it's good for RDMs (and WARs.) The DoT and TP gain is absolutely insane. The double attack procs 50% of the time. That means a lot more damage and much faster TP gain. Even with the lower damage rating compared to something like an espadon or a company sword the extra damage and extra WSs more than make up for it, especially if you're /nin and main-handing something that will give you better WS numbers.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

I got sh*t for drops today in BCNM40 Under observation, so in anger i went to kill charby PH mobs hoping to get Charby to pop, or go watch for ToD.


I arrive and no one is around save some gilsellers killing Zugg the shoreleaper, 2 Mantas as usual in the room, my friend Davitz is with me (70WAR). At approx 11pm my time he has to leave with it being a sunday so i carry on solo. until 1am when i'm just starting to get tired and thinking about calling it a day... this HUGE manta appears... i tab it and it is Charybdis.


Almost falling out of my chair i made repeated pleas on my LS for assistance, but everyone was sticking to their plans of lvling or were afk. Before long a NIN and a RDM are en route, meanwhile i am panicing as RMT are sizing up charybdis. They engage and rapidly wipe, simply leaving when raised. (relief numer 1).

After a couple of hours of Death, reraises, reinforcements arriving, panics, drama, struggle we got to an alliance of 8,

PLD 75
PLD 75
NIN 75
NIN 75
NIN 72
RDM 75
BLU 75
BST 75


We knew we were kinda low on healing, but with the addition of Parade gorget, PLDs can keep up a good stream of MP to heal. It wasnt long before NINs started going down, the 72 NIN and a 75 NIN went down once during the fight, we used a alternating system so one NIN was always resting while 2 fighting, all other members supporting NINs and NOT meleeing.

It fell after approx 15-25mins, and Single drop was Joyeuse... my Lot was 917 which was unmatched except for a BST who promptly passed (just wanted to play mind tricks, aint that right spanki ^^). Other lots were low 200, and a mid 700.

And that is how i obtained my Joyeuse! Dreams do come true, even at the most obscure times and places.

So Charybdis will pop even without killing the placeholders? Or were you doing that?

I got ToD Sat morning at 11:30am, this was months ago, (was only there for 30mins and it popped). JP team was there camping, Charby popped, JP killed Charby (was hoping for them to get wiped at 1% lol). Went back 7 hours and 50mins after with my Social LS and my Dynamis LS. Same JP team was there. Killed 2 of the PH's, didn't kill the one outside. Then ten minutes after the window was open, Charby popped, BLM friend claimed it. Then PLD friend kited, us mages using light nukes, and DoT, and enfeebs. PLD fell, RR, then tanked/kited again. Another PLD friend was there too meleeing (loltwinpld), he fell too. WAR friend fell, Princess MNK fell. RDM friend came, he was farming eyes. So just mages and one PLD were alive nuking and kiting Chary. JP team was anxious for us to wipe. At 10%, I started nuking heavily(came as blm). Charby didn't like that, did some AOE, ate my blink and ss, my hp went down from 900+ to 19 lol. Then Charby, just fell to the ground or something, I don't remember who killed it, it was chaos, maybe killed by DoT, lol. Joyeuse is mine. Bought E-Sword 2months later for 7.6mil ^^. Joyeuse + E-sword = Sexy.

I decided I'd try and get this guys ToD or something so i traveled to the deep dark reaches of this scary place lol.. When I got there I found about 8 people, I looked up and saw he was out and unclaimed! Realizing everyone was busy I asked the party if i could join since they were not sure if they had enough, they let me in lol.. Soon after we claimed and beat the crap out of this guy! When he died the screen read "You find a joyeuse on the Charydbis." "Crisis receives a joyeuse." I had just showed up there... But some of those people had been there for 8hrs trying to form this party... Crisis then warped out w/o ever saying a word to anyone. I hate people who sh*t like this. I'm only posting this so that those on the garuda server knows to lookout for this dude... gl getting your joytoys guys :)

:D There you are you F*cking idiot! I've been looking for you! I was meaning to get back to your millions of harassing /tell's about how i dont have a girlfriend and why people don't like me!

Here's the deal for everyone if you want to know. I had been camping Joyeuse for about 15 hours. I was soloing PH's. I see Charby pop, I formed a PT with Linkshell members and friends, and asked the 4 RMT in the area to help out and tank it which they said ok. My BRD friend was coming and said "Dont let the RMT ninja tank it until i'm there". So we're waiting for Omegadeath to arrive as BRD to help out. I see a person /tell me "Lildarkangel>> Can I join?" I'm like uhh ok, and I had my friend REX invite the reject into the 2nd alliance. We kill charby, I got drop. and then, Lildarkangel tells me how i'm single, how people hate me, how she likes it in her nose, and I got back after taking a dump, and I saw all of that and tried to respond but she was offline.

Lil Dark Anal... I don't know you, you asked if you could join and I invited you. Please go sit down somewhere and calm yourself.

LoL n00b comes along thinks the party he helped should give him/her claim after him doing all 0 minutes of camping and just give up all the time they put forth in assembling a party.

Yet all day, a semi enthusiastic mage initiated timed yawns. Then, right in his turmoil, Dramanue, enthused greatly now, again heard calls. Rejoining on Linkshell, only Charybdis sundered that instant. Trusting in his companions, the articulate mage's outlook (the dream's) retold of where she'd always exist. Rather enthusiastically, he truly saw and was relieved entirely. Vying endlessly, night's dreams never alleviated entangled sensations. Unsupressing exasperated yawns, only Joyeuse's greater nuances usually hindered enthused dreamers. I see, sighing in habit, yonder battle.

Sword's instant dream brings yawning redmages a hopeful change.

Got my Joy bout 4 days ago, got the ToD from a friend who claimed it but last the lot for it, been kinda pissed bout this thing, ive been campin it off and on for a month but everything i get a ToD or it pops no one aroudn to help me. This was weird but funny at the end. Got there with:

Texan THF75
Jadea WHM74
Dreyton RDM 75
Darlanton PLD 75 (showed up later)
Magicite BRD 73 (showed up at pop)
and me Drg 75


Got there at beginning of window, and camped for 2 hours killin PHs, eventually my friend who got me the ToD showed up, and the RDM had to go, got sleepy, and the THF and WHM fell asleep -.- so im there killin with my PLD friend, and 30 min before window closes my BRD friend gets on and i tell to get over here, and the THF wakes up with the WHM, and charby pops when im gettin the BRD down there...scared of rmts, THF claims before me and BRD get there...we wipe. RR back up, and we get ready buff up properly, and THF solos it with double mambo, sexiest thing ive ever seen, PLD and me took care of manta pops and helped cure so we wouldnt let whm gather to much hate. Half hour later, charby falls, and i get my Joy ;)

Just got it...had TOD from a friend of a friend.

Long story, 2 wipes, finally took him down after rounding up:

75WHM/BLM
75SMN/WHM x2
75RDM/BLM x2
75DRK/THF
75PLD/WAR
70RNG/NIN
69RDM/BLM
67BRD/WHM
67MNK/NIN
67PLD/WAR (me)

75 PLD did an incredible job tanking him, everyone worked well enfeebling, SCing, healing, Blood Pact, etc.

I started meleeing but it seemed more efficient for me to Flash and help Cure.

Got there 7 hrs. after TOD, killed every PH, he finally reared his ugly head 16 hrs. after the last TOD.

I did try tanking him at first after the 75NIN couldn't come, I kept hate just fine despite being cure bombed like crazy, but even with max Shield Skill/VIT/DEF gear I was getting pounded, wiped when he was about 50%, tried again, got him to about 33%, then got more people and the 75PLD to come.

I just got My JOyeuse today after trying forever, and I thought i would share a few things of note.

Most sites and players mention a 8-12 hour pop time, but in all honesty, the pop is VERY random, even if you are killing the PH with each pop. The last time I showed up, I didnt have ToD, but camped it for 15 and a half hours before it popped. Which means, it could have been MUCH longer than 15.5 hours, since there's no telling how long ago it was killed before I arrived.

After I got TOD, it popped after 9 hours (only 1 hour into window). I was extremely lucky this time, there was no one there but me, soloing placeholders... SSG was filled with RMT, and at one point, while waiting for ls and friends to arrive, I was worried it woudl get claimed... And sure enough, an RMT duo tried to take it... and it was destroyign them in seconds, so they escaped. Only reason I can imagine them going after this is the Oxblood, or possibly just to piss me off, lmao!

Anyway, placeholder pops every 16min, and one VERY important thing I learned, on EVERY CHarybdis pop I have seen, if TWO Devil Mantas pop in the room instead of one, the very next pop will be Charybdis. This has been true every time I"ve seen it.

Another theory I have, call me crazy on this one if you want... but it seems as though when more people are camping it, it takes much longer to pop. I have been with, and seen SO many parties camping this and give up because it goes 8+ hours into it's window, and just doesnt pop, but when myself, and others I know have had tremendous luck with fast pops if they are the only one there, and soloing the placeholder. Seeing is believing.

Finally, about fighting it. You NEED to keep it very enfeebled (blind, slow, paralyze) and ALWAYS keep DoT spells (Bio II, Poison II at LEAST) on it unless you have a damn good tank with lots of blms to nuke it. You really need a brd, if you dont have one, you are extremely lucky if you win. Double Mambo and Elegy work wonders in this fight, since this thing attacks so frequently and so hard. Also, you dont want many melees pounding on it, and giving it tp, if you do, even an alliance of 18 can wipe, from it spamming AoE, and eating shadows. It's really not bad at all as long as everyone gives 100% and is always on their toes. A pt of three (RDM, BRD, and NIN or THF) can trio this easily, it just takes a little time.

Finally, I want to say, you can depend on others to help you fight it, and it's great to have support, but if you REALLY want this sword, you need to get your butt down there, and be prepared to camp it for a long time alone, and solo placeholders if need be. YOu have to be VERY patient, and if you dont feel it's worth the time, then just dont even consider getting it to begin with.

I got extremly lucky. Camped it for about 9 hours and logged out for the night. Logged in next afternoon and there he was. Pt had just wiped I started calling for my ls. They started to arrive other pt freaked and engaged him again. They die quickly again and after a epic struggle of 45 mins or so of almost dieing the Joyeuese is mine

Finally got the sword, which had been frustrating me before. My RDM now feels that whole much more complete finally. I had only recently come back to the game about 2days before after having a year out, partly because of my luck and other campers with this sword.

Knowing how long I was away, my friends were glad to help. Went there after Maintenance and luckily it hadn't been popped yet, waited for 6hours with a few friends. Forever killing the Devil Manta's. We finally gave up, but I decided to see one last pop and everyone else warped.

Would you belive it, the next pop was Charybdis and everyone had warped, damn my luck! So i telled them all and they was on there way back again. During this time a party of three appeared alerting there shell (which in the entire 6hours was the only people to appear!)

So me alone and time against me the others frantically come back to the grotto. The BLM missed the airship though, but by this time the Ninja and Bard arrived. The BLM also had no gold coin, so the WHm had to trek back to open the gate.

While this was happening me (RDM/BLM), NIN/WAR and the BRD/WHM engaged battle to make sure we got the mob. Took about 5-10mins and it was down to 40% and we had full hp and mp still. easy fight. Then the WHM/BLM, BLM/WHM, THF/NIN arrived and took all of 2minutes to finish her off w00t finally I got my sword.

I wanna thank all involved Kreeper, Isabella, Calle, Odysseus and special shout to Parku who also has returned to the game.
