Well here's a neat little addition to my stuff.

--Raider's Bonnet +1
--Raider's Culottes +2
--Mars's Ring (woot)

My tp set is near flawless. I only need 3 more vision stones for blue hat and an upgraded belt and I'd say there was nothing left to add. Goading/Bullwhip/N sash would all fill the void, and I'm sure I'll have one sooner or later. We'll just see which it ends up being.

I've done the Gieremund with my 81 RDM dual-box (was definitely nice to get both War and Thf head seals, but War is finished now).

You would likely be able to dual-box Granite Borer as long as Stun gets off for the -aga IV spells.

Raider's Poulines +1 complete!

Was starting to wonder about those. After countless parties/fell cleave burns and everything else in attowa i never even SAW the thf base item in a chest. And only 3 days previous, i had JUST logged out and some LS buddies got thf feet to drop and were frantically looking for me to jump in the zone. But i had logged off messanger and FFXI after a frustrating day. That didnt help my mood xD

After a linkshell event, my buddy wanted me to help him finish his drg helm and had been bugging me for a while. So i stuck around wiht a little 4 man group spamming the doomed for a few hours since we had capped lights from events. . Every time i pointed out it was getting REALLY late, my buddy said "well you can get your thf feet!" to which i rolled my eyes. Well, you can imagine my surprise after months to finally see them pop up. As the same buddy often says. "Its karma!" regarding helping him for no gain of my own.

Long story short, I got my thf booties at like 2am sat night and spammed funguar for a good chunk of today to get my last 6 seals. Now i am the proud owner of my +1 boots!

This also completes my "main" jobs +1s. All 3 thf and drg are now done and some decent progess on +2s. 4/6 for thf head+2, 1/6 legs, 0/6 feet. Drg legs +2 done, 3/6 for head, 0/6 for feet.

Got the AF3 +1 hands completed last night (finished THF and DRG hands over the past couple days). Wish I could find more info on the body though, as Dominion Ops have been less than useful.

Raider's Armlets +1!

Also, dagger skill capped for lv 90 :P

On that note, has anyone gotten the chance to test the raider's hands "increases TA damage" vs AF+1 "increases TA damage"? I would HOPE SE wouldnt make the super af gimpier than oldschool AF when its teh same slot for competition. Also curious because many 'effects' on the new Emp. AF sets get a significant boost for the +2 version. Curious if the TA damage is one of them.

According to BG, its actually "Increases Sneak Attack Damage" (mislabeled in the NA client...correctly on the JP one) and adds 15% DEX to SA damage just like the af +1 gloves for TA.

Should be easy enough to verify yourself.

Wow...that news actually makes me pretty **** happy...even though I just took all my flee merits and put them into TA thinking that I would make it stronger once I got AF3+1 gloves. Oh well, it's still easier to TA in abyssea at least in alliances.

I just did a short test of the AF+1 hands. (Thread here) They are definitely at least SA. All results are falling in line with a 15% dex boost on SA identical to the 15% agi boost on AF+1 for TA.

I have not had a chance to check TA on the off chance that it actually enhances both. Hope to verify that soon enough.

I too am much happier with them being SA hands instead of overlapping uses with AF+1 on TA.

It is not a 'tangible' accomplishment, but, by far, the most important in a long time for me. My pursuit of Twashtar is finally getting off the ground!

I finally found an efficient way to farm glavoid sets by myself! I had 2/4 KI to pop it on 1 char yesterday from random gold farming ages ago. By the end of the night i had completed that set and 3/4 on another (only missed the big worm because it was being camped by bsts all night ><). As soon as i catch him I will have a full complete 2 sets!

My war friend had been working on the same path for his Gaxe empyream and just dual boxes a whm and fell cleave farms EVERYTHING. Its completely absurd. He just gold farms en mass via fell cleave. I could never match that (A i had rdm instead of whm to dual box, B I only had thf and drg to really kill stuff with which cant match fell cleave spam).

I have been struggling with how to efficiently gold farm for months. So yesterday I said F it. I am going to complete the other half of the set my mule had (2/4). So i went out to tahrongi with thf and rdm, farmed up pops, popped, killed a few times for each NM (since i only got 1 red all night) and jsut spammed stuff till i got the KI. It went WAY faster than I thought. In ~3 hours I had finished my mules and gotten 3/4 on my main. This was after getting more key items before that in Vunkerl for Amhuluk pop (thf legs+2 go!).

I was always trying to find a way to goldfarm. Just going out and building up NM popsets by actually KILLING the NMs didnt really occur to me....the list looked so long (6 NMs total) and some seemed scary. They were all jokes. (And MUCH luv to SE adjusting repop timers on timed NMs like Adze!)

I also capped evasion doin this xD

Glavoid, you cockblock, beware! I be comin for ye! Twashtar here I come!

Got THF AF3+2 pants and feet!
Kila+2 too but that's not much of an accomplishment >_>

I WAS going to doing feet/legs for bard af3+2 but I got lazy about getting the +1 seals and then the december update broke bard... I'm so glad I didn't waste that **** on bard.

Also, did like 10 or so glavoids with my shell for an LS mate's ukonvasara. It's a pretty easy fight and I'm on the fence about doing an ukonvasara or twashtar... I'm up next for an empyrean unless I pass on it to let someone else get one. Thoughts?

Banalaty, it's actually faster to fight the NM's if you want Glavoid sets than try and gold farm them, but fell cleave burns would be very effective gold farms. I won't lie, that's a good idea (actually blm -ga farming would be too... bats are mushy but getting amber still takes time.... **** adamantoise). You can buy pop items for the two force pops on auction, and I've duod Adze with a dancer friend. The Sodden Sandworm Husk requires a few mages, but repop timer on spawn nm's is 15 minutes so it's a feasible way to farm now. I duod Adze 3 times in an hour because the dancer wasnted the rdm neck which rarely drops, and we both got the sticky gnat wing. I'm going to farm key items just by NM battling rather than gold farming.

I can't say when I'll really be getting at my Twashter, but it should be fairly soon. I've promised a friend I'd get him Masamune if he helped me with Twashter in exchange, and we began Carborossa last night and he has many Creoin-Croin lanterns so it shouldn't be long. Once he finishes Masamune we'll begin Twashter farming. I have a small group myself to call upon, the core is myself, said dancer/rdm main's, and my friend who is best at war/blm/sam and several mage friends. I'm looking forward to the months ahead.

EDIT: in regards to my progress, I'm 5/50 Glav shell and 17/50 Itza scales. I Haven't even begun thinking about the atthwa boss, but ill get to him later. This path is literally 5-10 times more challenging than Masamune, but it's a fun ride and I'm having a blast. Itza is coming alone nicely, but I only recently began glav so I'm pleased with 5 shells.

Not a Great Accomplishment in fact but found interesting to mention.

Tossed yesterday some Dominion Notes to the NPC in Grauberg for an Yataghan (DMG: 35 Delay: 201 HP +24 Evasion +6)
And I got many good one but keep only one > DMG+3 & Crit.DMG+5% (and from what I see on wiki, I can get much better).

I still don't have a R.Sax, so this will replace my old beloved BD while working on seals and KI for the NM in Misareaux ^^

I saw epona's ring the day the .dat mining happened. I bought my Mars's Ring and I'm going to keep it forever because you never know if they'll add a way to upgrade it later at level 99 which could be fun. But right now epona's ring is the best tp ring alongside Rajas. I'll probably brew down Rani once I finish Shinryu and get it that way. I don't have a lot of cruor but that's one of the instances I'd use it on.

Yeah, im no longer in a 'big' hurry to get eponas. Ill bask in the glory of the mars for a while :P

Now I gotta run some numbers on using mars for DE/Evis etc. Not sure how it compares to stat rings. That is a LOT of acc and a nice chunk of atk for the ever atk starved thf. Time to go figure out what other macros to stick it in.

As a side note, I can now actually tweak my utsu casting set now that I can shoot PAST the 26% gear haste cap. Can add in more eva gear or fastcast gear <3
