It may not be a grand accomplishment, but I recently decided to come back to my PUP roots after being discouraged by so many endgame LSs. Ailden PUP v2.0 Is going to be better then ever!

I also started the Pet MACC/MAB (I can't decide just yet...) Magian Trials and capped my H2H skill to the new B+!

PUP Forums, I missed you. <3

I had a 9 Utukku spawn rotation in Fei'Yin, and at "1 objective remains" 7 consecutive ghosts popped as "Too Weak" before I finally got an Easy Prey to finish my trial.


Where do you rotate between the Utukku? Currently on this trial as well and Cassie is driving me nuts ><

6,305 / 9,920 WS Points towards Stringing Pummel.
:) I figured since I haven't been able to get a Nyzul PT to successfully climb past 13 (I've been trying since August 2009), getting almost 10,000 WS points would be a nice bragging right. :P Almost there!

Floor 30 nyzul. I should have stringing pummel between 50 and 75; i've been soloing FoV quite a lot lately working on WS points.

Edit: Just shout for Floor 10-20~ish, you'll usually get a few bites. On valefor there are shouts pretty much every day for nyzul climbs (but most fail)

I was fortunate enough to make a group with 4 competent people at floor 1, and just found 2 more people as we weeded out the idiots.

Oh yeah, 1 more merit until capped h2h and 3 more upgrades until all my PUP merits are capped out. :D


As far as Nyzul goes,
I've tried shouting and statics. Both have failed. 2 statics fell through, and shouting usually takes up to 6 hours to get a full PT. Half the time the PT will bail after the first attempt/failure. Hence being stuck on 11 for 9 months. ><

(Spurrer Beret) (Found it!) soloed it on SCH.

So far, I've been:
1/3 on Virtuoso Belt
1/1 on Surge Subligar
1/1 on Wayang Kulit Mantle (as if anyone really wants this...)

and now, 1/2 on Spurrer Beret.

These PUP drops seem to like me

Hmmm, soloed as SCH, you say? I'm interested, what strategy did you use?

I used the strategy that's near the bottom on Wiki's discussion page. Pulled it to the campaign room, then kited it through the two tunnels that lead from the room to the C.A.

Need movement speed, Desert Boots work fine, as long as you keep Sandstorm up at all times. Assuming it doesn't hit you, it will de-aggro about 20-25 seconds after you cast on it. Everytime it de-aggros, Keep up Sandstorm, Sublimation, Stoneskin, etc... Then pull it again with a Helix, Dia II (Bio supposedly wears off very fast), or a nuke. Try to cast from max range, or it may hit you if it attempts a TP move (if it uses Microspores to put a Helix on you, it will HURT.)

It's pretty easy actually, as long as you pay attention. Any mage that can keep MP up, and has some way to enhance movement speed can do it.

Fairly interesting, I currently have 8% movement speed on BLM, do you think I could solo it using DoT and zone on the zone line? Or would you suggest keeping it to the corridors

I haven't tried the Dot/zone method, so not sure which works better. The mob wanders back to it's spawn point very very VERY slowly, so I was paranoid that it would stay too close to the zoneline, and I wouldn't be able to safely cast on it without it having a chance to land a hit... or even worse, use Microspores. As far as I know though, people have had success with the DoT/zone method.

Kiting through the corridors would work fine with 8% movement speed, you'd just want to cast from max distance, to be certain that you can get away before gets near you.


EDIT: One thing to watch for is when it loses aggro as you turn a corner, and you can't cast on it from max distance because you "cannot see" it. If that happens, just run back past it, and kite in the other direction, it's non-aggro so it's completely safe to run past it.

Joined a new Limbus shell recently after retiring for good from Dyna and freeing up some FFXI time for other events. Don't care about Homam/Nashira (none of my jobs use it), already have most of the AF+1 items that I really care about for all of my jobs, so I mainly went back to Limbus just because I think it's a fun event, especially on PUP. And the Anct. Beastcoin money is always nice.

I've always liked PUP in Limbus, but since I last did it my gear/merits are improved, I got the H2H skill boost from March update, and I've gotten into playing with parsers. Anyway, I've been really impressed. I've come to three runs now, all on PUP/NIN (Spiritreaver frame for the most part). I generally melee myself while controlling my puppet to nuke.

One run (NE Apollyon) my puppet and I combined to be #1 DD by a fair margin, which wasn't too shocking to me. Beat out a SAM and BLM as the other top DDs. What surprised me though was that master/puppet came close to taking slots #1 AND #2, we were 1-2 until the 3rd of 5 floors then slipped a bit. Ended up #2 (master) and #3 (automaton).

Then yesterday, Proto-Omega run surprised me. A lot of people showed up, and we went in with an 18/18 alliance. And my Spiritreaver automaton ALONE was #1 DD by a pretty healthy chunk (15.something% of total, second place was a SAM who was 12.something). Beat out a SAM, a DRK, a RNG, and four BLMs. My own damage was garbage here, but I was standing back a lot and not meleeing - I did contribute a little bit of melee during Proto-Omega's magic-resistant forms.

So yeah, happy that my PUP is making a good showing. The LS members aren't bad players either! Not the most elite bunch around, we're not talking a group of relic holders with every elite piece, but the DDs generally have very solid gear and understand what they're doing. And I can't wait till SW Apollyon to solo/depop the third floor of Mimics and make people who don't know PUP can do that say o.O ;)

After forever and a half of having CoP complete and whatnot...

Swift Belt 1/1!

Thanks to a few LSmates of mine for getting together for the run, and especially Lenus for taking the time to farm an extra codex for me when I couldn't get one (huge time constraint issues). Now all I need to do to be completely free of CoP is get a Hollow Earring and Faith Torque...


Then I'll need to work on Goliard Body, ASA legs, and hope that Usu 25 feet drop sometime soon. ; ;

Not sure if this is much of an achievement, managed to trio Under Observation with a party of PUP's.
All subbed NIN, two used Soulsoother and one used Valoredge. Have the Eraser on and this is a easy as pie fight.

75 Pup today at last, all solo no thanks to even 'LSmates' refusing to put me in their parties...

Had merits ready for RR, coming in handy while capping skills on tree crabs.

This now makes 5 lvl 75 jobs... I don't look forward to level uncap...
