It took me 11 days but I finally did it. 1500 kill shots on undead with Mandy Stab.
Thf really get the short end of the stick because you have to stack Mandy Stab with SA or TA. So even if you bring a brd, cor, whm combo you are still stuck on your slow SA and TA timers.
And Mandy Stab is horrible damage on EP/DC monsters if you compare it to Dancing Edge. Mandy Stab will shine on IT+ monsters. But killing 1500 IT+ monsters is kind of...........unpractical.
Not to mention the fact that SE still has not fixed the "lock" problem for thf. Each time I get hit with a buff/debuff/nuke I get locked in my animation. If I happen to use SAws at the time my SA gets split up from my ws. Which I don't want!
I think I killed around 300 extra undead because of this. It is really annoying thf and /thf have to deal with this "lock" problem.
The first few days I spend looking for a good camp with friendly undead monsters. I finally found this place in The Eldieme Necropolis [S]
When you tele into The Eldieme Necropolis [S] walk to the north room, sneak up, and drop down. From there you can walk to the pink dot shown on the map. You will also need invis for the goblins and tigers.
The area around the pink dot has 23 DC spriggans. These belong to the Shadow family. Wiki is listing them incorrectly as fomors which they are not.
Fomors will strip tp amongst other things. Which is bad when you are trying to kill stuff with Mandy Stab.
Spriggans have just one tp move: Dimensional Death: High damage, single target physical attack. This move will hit you for 250dmg max. But more often then not it will do less damage or miss you completely.
The Eldieme Necropolis [S] has lots of earth weather. Again wiki is wrong about this. It says there is no weather effect at all in The Eldieme Necropolis [S]. Ice and earth weather are both possible.
The earth weather is great because one of the sword trials is: kill 150 undead during earth day or earth weather. So I was able to team up a few times with a pld and rdm.
It is also possible to bring /bst here. Right outside the camp, shown with the red dot, are EP tigers which bring lots of extra DoT to the fight. Though I went /nin most of the time because of the extra damage X knife gave me on Mandy Stab.
And last but not least hardly anybody knows about this camp. During the 11 days I was there I saw zero people. Not counting the people I brought of coarse.
At 35 base damage Vajra is now where it should have been when I got the dagger. It can only get better from here on out. Unless the next Trial in June will be: 1500 kill shots on Tiamat during dark weather on darksday. SE please be nice to me. Thank you!
