Got wyrm beard on 12/19/08 at a friend's KS99 run with his linshell (thanks Mattthemaster and LatentEffect LS)

Claimed Aspidochelone on Christmas and gave it to another LS who killed it and let me freelot adamantoise egg (despite someone waiting there to pay 600k for egg) for not giving Aspid to another LS (thanks to Ianpier and ATGagainstthegrain LS and to Leon (Voltage LS), Mend, and Nitnie from my LS Apotheosis.

Finally yesterday, Jan. 1st, despite killing NQ Behemoth for the second day in a row, got the behemoth's tongue on our first of three successful KS99 runs. It was the only tongue drop of the day.

I didn't shell out a single gil for any part of my Black Belt which to me is priceless.

1/01/2009 obtained: Black Belt.

Thanks to a lot of people really. Derock, Mattthemaster, Fuu, Garr, Aur, Ravi, Neko, Ethan, Lynn, Cy, Dippy, Nit, Kych, Mak, Yoshi, Wickerbasket, Marsali, Arc, Crinx, and Mend. If I've missed anyone, I'm sorry. Just yell at me in game. ;P

Im going to work for it when the time comes.

Right now im a 42 MNK, and currently have a Purple Belt that was given to me.
Im going to try and do the quest for the Purple Belt once I get enough fame.. then the Brown Belt quest before leveling my MNK at all.

I really want to be all I can be with MNK, since MNK is my main profession.

I honestly never expected to get my Black Belt. Been 75 mnk for 3 (4?) years now, and every prior opportunity I've had always seemed to fizzle out. However an LS friend that got hooked up with a shell that does KS99s invited me to join up with them a few weeks ago, and I finally got my chance.

April 25, 2009 - KS99 Behemoth, paid for tongue from a friend's orb; mine didn't drop, but I got 1.2 mil in other stuff, so balanced out.
May 2, 2009 - KS99 Turtle, paid for egg from someone else's orb; mine didn't drop.
May 9, 2009 - KS99 Wyrm, got beard on my orb.
May 10, 2009 at about 6AM - Black Belt

Overall net cost: 1 million gil and about 18 hours of helping on KS99 runs (12+ runs every week, oi.. still, lots of fun). Now to go play with it...

Huge congrats, Kinematics, you certainly deserve it! I also never thought I'd get mine, and ended up receiving all the items via KS99s, thanks to some unexpected generosity.

I feel this is the best place to ask this, but how much did you pay/expect to pay for each BB item off of KS99?

Drops will generally vary from 1-2mil each.

edit: Woops, didn't see the word KS99 at the end. Afraid I don't know the answer to that one.

Same rule generally applies to the KS99 drops as they do to ground, however with KS99s you can get lucky and find a benevolent group who will give you the item, however I wouldn't bank on it and would expect to pay at least 1m, and more likely closer to 2

it also depends on how many orbs the group has. if they have more orbs than they know what to do with, it's probably 1-2m or benevolent free. if they have less orbs than they have time, you may be able to work a deal where you give an orb (and all its non-BB drops) for BB item--especially if it's beard you're after, since speed belt is a pretty big deal.

Our LS basically says "If you lot the BB item, you forfeit your share of the sell/split gil up to a max of 500k (after which you get gil again)". So this is basically charging 500k with the possibility/likelihood of paying much less if not much else drops.

This is considered extremely generous and only works because I've been playing with the people I run KS99 with for 5 years or so.

Also, {Black Belt} O

congrats(:. that's a really fair system in my opinion. MNKs looking to form a little KS99 group, take note(:, since that would probably work pretty well to get people together. also, i don't know why i still use emoticons.
