Black Belt -> 05/25/2009

Man, out-lotted, out-claimed, 30 person bottleneck in LS. You know the drill, most all of us have been 2/3 pulling our hair out over one of the items.

FoV in Valley of Sorrows, on the drop off end, and I hear a shout, Adamantoise Egg, Do you need it?

Cost me 2 Mil, but it was worth it after all the fails at 150 camps!


"Don't take it personally man, white knights would eat a can of **** if the label said SE on it. If anyone dared mention that it was not a good product, they'd just argue if someone can't appreciate the subtle nuances in the ****, they should just go back to eating lolrealfood, cuz the devs prolly know more about canning food than they do."

Got mine today!

- Tongue obtained for free several months ago from KS99 with my friend's sky ls.
- Beard from Nidhogg on Wednesday. Paid 1.5 mil.
- Egg from NQ turtle just a couple hours ago. A pair of blms claimed it first and died to a bunch of aggro, then my group grabbed it. 1/1 on egg. HQ was yesterday but some JP rdm shouted 3 mil for egg...

Thanks to Valdrin for ToDs and Darkcloudx (I'll never call your TH broken again), Shidoshi, and Oragel for helping kill Adamantoise!

Got tongue from KB.
Got egg last night from Aspid.

Black Belt obtained 9/16/09 at 5:10AM!

Bought the Behemoth Tongue first in Qufim for 1.5M

After over a dozen times of watching Fafhogg drop the Beard and either being outbid for it, or just not having enough gil to pay in general, a random LS sold me the Wyrm Beard for 2M.

After that, I HAD to have the egg, so I liquidated all my SMN gear (retired it anyhow) to be able to afford to buy the egg. I understand why it is called the Valley of Sorrows now... I witnessed at least 20 drops of the egg that were sold to other people. Two players spent 7M each just for that one item. I claimed Adamantoise 3 times, and killed it twice with no drop (the first time, I would have had it but was solo and got eaten by adds). I was getting pretty tired of being outbid EVERY time for the egg, and was about to give up, until last night.

One of the usual HNMLS had claimed Aspid, and they had him in a really bad spot where they had like 8 adds. They were able to handle them, but it was going very slowly. The tank held Aspid for over a half an hour while they whittled down the adds, but every time they killed two, another two repopped.

So it was pretty much at a stale mate, where the adds just kept on coming and I thought to myself, "Hey, maybe if I help them out, they will do the same" so I started grabbing newly spawned raptors and rocs as they appeared. One of the mages in the HNMLS was curing me on occasion, so I knew I had their attention. Eventually they cleared out all their own slept adds and went to work nuking the turtle.

When it died, I did what I always do where I ask in say for them to sell me the egg and I only had 3.4M on me, but this LS normally charges 3M. However, there were other bidders there, and one of them must have offered 4M because one of the LS leaders said "4M" in say, and I didn't say anything since I knew I didn't have that.

A minute or two later though, I got a tell from him saying "We are selling it to you." To which I responded "I don't have 4M. 3.4 is the highest..." but he just said "3M" and all I said was "Sold!" And even after a guy offered to pay 4.5M in say, they invited me, I paid and they let me lot and also thanked me for helping clear the adds. So yeah, it was awesome to see that it paid off to help them, and that money isn't always everything in this game.

Was lucky enough to join an established HNMLS where pretty much every MNK75 already had the belt. Got beard from Nidhogg while still on probation. Got egg from an Aspid several months later. My shell doesn't do KB very much, but after about a week and a half of tracking ToD we managed to snag a tongue off an NQ pop. /hurray

Been 75MNK for 3.5 years now, I still can't believe I actually got this thing, haha.

Black Belt obtained 10/11/09. 0/10ish on tongue from KS99, bought from NQ Behemoth for 2M. Wyrm Beard, 1/a whole lot of orbs on KS99 (including losing out on one to go towards a former ls-mate's lv.12 monk!). I spent way, way, way too many fruitless nights hanging out in VoS over the last couple years trying to buy to no avail. Finally got the LS together for a KS99 turtle tonight, and got the drop 1/1!

Being @ 25% Haste is a nice feeling. For most, the Egg is hardest, because if your not in an HNM ls, you either have to camp it, or pay 2-3M for it. I came into alot of gil from a friend who left the game, and I spent 5M of it on the tongue and egg of both HQ's on the same day, it was the best gil i've ever spent.

I doubt I'll ever commit to Salvage now with ffXIV on the horizon, but i'm very happy with my 25% haste, +42ACC (not inc ACC from Haidate or Rajas) MNK. A 5/5 Usukane MNK obviously rules due to the additional ~20ACC + 4fSTR from having the set gives MNK, which is why you need so much gil to support it.
Taking a break.

I've been a 75 monk now for about 2 years. Up until about 6 months ago i was 0/3 on black belt items and thought i'd never get it. I was 2/5 on Usukane already. Then after an update I started camping the Turtle, and on day 4 I was getting ready to head out to VoS and then I figured I should search behemoth domain.
The search showed like 100+ people there. So I took off to there and what do I See? King Behemoth is up and being killed. So I quickly find a LS leader that is fighting him and ask if I can buy the tongue. I get a tell back saying 2 million?
I say sure. So after they killed him, I got my 1st Black belt item.

After a few more months of nothing and some canceled ks99 runs, and now 4/5 on my Usukane (needed just the body), 4 weeks ago my ls get 12 people together and we kill 2 ks99 Wyrms. We had x2 pld, x3whm, x3blm, rdm, sch, brd, rng (me), no beard. Then one of our blm had to leave and no one else wanted to risk their orb. So after 2 hour of searching friends, people started popping into the LS and we now had 18 people for the rest of the ks99. After about 4 more pops the beard finally drops.
Now my LS has a rule that the orb holder gets any 2 items he/she wants and rest is auto dropped. If a BB item drops and orb holder doesn't want it, then the Monks of the LS follow a lotting order.
The orb holder can also give or sell the BB item to some one and it counts as 1 of their 2 lots. So before hand I work out a deal with this member to buy his beard for 1 million if it dropped since it didn't drop on my orb. Well it work out good for both of us, as the only good drop he got was Dragon meat & the beard. So he got 1 million gil & now I was 2/3 on BB.

After about a week from doing ks99 I decided to get the Turtles ToD and get my Egg. After 3 weeks of watching others get the Egg, being out claimed, getting claim & no Egg, and no one selling the Egg when it did drop. I got up this morning and went out there to camp yet another day. I knew I wasn't getting claim as my LS was still sleeping. Upon the 1st window there is just me and 1 LS member that has help me camp a few times and another LS there with just 4 people. First window opens and what do I see? Aspi has popped and their pld got claim. They end of having some aggro, so I decide to help with the aggro. I ask their leader that is there if I can buy the Egg, she says maybe. After about 10 mins more of their LS shows up and they now have enough damage to take down the Turtle. After about 10 mins they have the Turtle down to 3%. So I ask the leader again if they will sell it to me. I get now response, the Turtle is Dead. I send another tell 4 million?, again nothing. I send one more tell of just ?
I then get a tell back saying, k. They invite me, I lot the Egg, pay the leader, Egg drops :)

I then go finish my Black Belt Quest and obtain my New Black Belt at 10:37am EST Nov 14/09

got mine recently. im sure ill get flamed for my story. honestly i had a harder time with brown belt than i did with black belt.

before i started leveling MNK i made sure i had Purple belt and Brown belt. once i got those 2 i started off. around 70ish i joined an endgame shell, and showed up for stuff every so often. Eventually a KS99 (turtle) event rolled around, i had enough for an orb so i tried my luck, no drop, did get a kreigsbell though.

A friend of mine got the egg but wasnt leveling mnk anytime soon, so she gave the item to me. My second in command of my dynamis shell was with us and expected me to give him the item because his mnk was 75 and he "wanted it more." i kept it and he raged and quit my dynamis shell.

A month later after sitting on the egg and just doing stuff on BLM and COR, we go off to camp a day 6 Nidhogg when all of a sudden KB pops. we got claim but had no one to fight a bunch of us headed out and i was one of them. killed KB and Tongue dropped. 2 of us wanted it but the other guy didnt want to leave Dragon's Aery only to have to climb back up so he let me have it.

The very next day we claimed Nidhogg and as i was the only one there that needed a black belt item, they let me have it.

So a little bit of work and a lot of luck i had my black belt at lv71 MNK. needless to say i went out and tested it at 71 on Imp's. lets just say i tanked that pt, pld couldnt get hate offa me.

Took me like 2 years to finally get Nue's fang, i dont know what all this black belt complaining is. all these gil #'s floating around. 1/30 on nue's fang. guess it pays to be on a closed server somtimes.
