Well I know its not the greatest accomplishment in the world but just thought I'd announce it:

Woot 5/5 Relic armor for COR

After 8 months of Dynamis, the Hat finally dropped in Xarca for me. That was one elusive item. I was sitting at 4/5 for 6 months lol. Managed to get 4/5 RDM and 3/5 RNG in that time waiting for the hat to drop.

How many attempts? That goes for chewzer too..

Was my first try. I just happened to have my guns in satchel when I headed up to Sky. I fully intended to augment Corsair's Gun, but I had a few drinks in me and decided at the last minute to risk the Martial. Solo'ed on RDM/BLM, no idea what the day/weather was.

Completed Skadi's Cuirie wooooo. Oddly enough my first Skadi piece, but I only need 25 to drop and I can finish pants.

Nice Filian. I have a CUH and Shooting Mirke so it's not a piece I'm aiming for, but I understand the difficulty of obtaining it and the dedication. Good work.

Finally saw a Martial on the AH, spent all of my gil on it, and ended up with +1 DEX.. My first had +1 AGI.. If the 1 AGI isn't hitting a new WSC, and I'm at 95% WS hit rate, then the point of DEX is an improvement when meleeing..

Talk about underwhelming.. /still envy at people with lots of Raac on it.

Congratulations on the ledelsens, I'm so jealous!

Its not quite as exciting, but I finally got Sarabande Earring to drop (1/14). I ended up picking ethereal earring from Apoc Nigh and have been trying to find another +acc earring to pair with diabolos for quite a while. Its not a tremendous amount of acc, but on mamool I'll take everything I can get.

Congratulations to you as well.

First time Lugh put out gear, and we also managed to get our 2nd sword.

Wish Mithra would put out too because a lot of Bahram's Cuisses would be nice for multi-hit WS heavy DD.

Since there was some discussion about it earlier in this thread, I got an amemet mantle +1 with +1 AGI on it today (and no negative stats). It was my third try. I think I'll just stop and be content with that. I've yet to see any +2 AGIs on other players and the most racc I've seen so far is +2 racc. In some of my steups the +1 AGI actually does make a difference for the ws mod and in most of them it gives me an even amount of AGI and hence at least +1 acc.

Time to try some foragers for +melee acc :(

iirc there are some 5 or 6 raac ones.. But I may also give up on it and stay with +1 AGI.

Well I know it's not the worlds greatest achievement but for a relatively casual COR that never thought I'd see the light of Sea, I'm pretty stoked today:

Finished CoP !!!!

Sea access: O
Rajas Ring: O

Now its time to get that Light Gorget and AF+1 bottes :)

Hmm... that is interesting. Maybe I'll try some more later. I've seen higher +racc on foragers, but I've yet to personally see screenshots of anything with more than 2 racc on amemet. If I can find confirmation of a 5-6 racc I'll give it some more tries.

Comm. Tricorne off the first demon in Xarc. Makes me 6/6 relic. Delicious!

Rover's Gloves! 1/38 Smiley: sly

I completely gave up on the drop a few weeks ago. Went to kill it today because I needed the Evolith for my WHM Ebur Bliaut. Go figure.

wb Arc-

I see Veuglaire as a QD only QD Acc gun.. Since Peacemaker has 5 AGI itself (and the -Enmity is even helpful), I don't see Veuglaire as a big deal - similar to say, Rover's Gloves and Skadi's Bazubands.. But Rover's Gloves can be used on all QD (not just QD only situations), and they have +25 MP.. So I'd think Veuglaire is rather situational and even less important than Rover's..

That said, I'd rather have it than not.. The one time I bothered to scout it out.. It takes a long time for a COR to kill the PHs.. They have 7,000 to 7,500 HP, and I'd imagine the Grand Marids have even more.

7,500 HP at 300 per QD is 25 Quick Draws.. That's 1,125 seconds on a 45 sec QD, or almost 19 minutes. That's not cool when the repop timer is 5 minutes on them.. So it's inefficient for COR to kill the PH solo.. But I feel the item at stake isn't exactly important to me, so how I can I ask for help on this?

How have you all been going about this? What I'll probably do is, when I have a little time to kill and nothing springs to mind, go empty my Random Deals and Wild Card on some PHs and at some point Mahishasura will make an appearance.


Edit - when I went out there, Mahishasura was just up.. But my luck wasn't all good.. I R0'd (but didn't fully d/c - this is the norm for me at least once a day) twice, both times dying as once he catches up to you, you're raped.. At 1% my controller cut out.. It had throughout, but this was bad timing.. Fortunately my SMN friend was otw as my friend who was there as TH needed raising (Thf engaged at 1% without shadows, bad things followed since the hate decays quickly).. TH4 on, 1/1, mercifully.

Whew.

I was in the same boat, thinking how the **** is anyone going to want to hang out here forever helping me kill PHs. What I did was first went out on /RNG found the PH of the two Marid east of the lake, pulled it to the tower entering WG. After it fell I raced back into town swapped to /rdm and hauled *** back to camp in time to see the PH repop. They are longish battles killing that PH over and over again, but I was getting a fair amount of marid hides while doing it. I think this is a great target for any COR collector (i love cor jse) and it's completely doable solo, just need the patience... :)

Commodore Tricorne get! Now 5/5, just need that delicious belt. Maybe Saturday in Dyna-Valk...

Only bad part is that the 4x Dyna-Xarc we have planned for April look a lot less exciting to me now than they did yesterday at this time. But I think I can live with that!!!
