Grats on the Haidate, Nor! Hoping to add a pair to my inventory within the next couple weeks.
Over the last 2 days, went from the end of CoP chapter 5 to the beginning of 8-2. Airship took two tries, we failed during the last 5-6% on Ultima due to some unfortunate positioning on wipe, decided to retry with a full group of 6 and it was laughably easy. Almost finished with the missions, and finally got ahold of my very own Brutal Earring :D
