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
