Not a drop accomplishment, just one of those feel good stories.

Last night my LS was gathering for limbus and the leader started to call out jobs an whatnot. We were getting ready to do omega so I automatically went to gear up RNG...

"Kali - DNC"
O.o. "/Sam for support?"
"No sub nin, you're tanking"
":o"

I must admit that my LS leader is really open to trying new things, but wasn't expecting this.
"oh and we're farming pods"
><;

Surprisingly I did pretty well. Evasion held up pretty nicely as did fan dance. Leader was on pld but with my Waltzbombing when he got low, hate was equally shared between us. The only real problem I had was when he took two consecutive heavy hits and went down. I was able to hold it for a bit, but without being able to cure back anything, hate started to slip towards the DD's. Thankfully each one of them took enough damage for me to divine waltz 2 and keep omega long enough until the pld recovered. All in all it worked out well and it left me feeling pretty **** good, despite my hatred for tanking in general ^^;

Oh and if any of you ever get questioned about bringing dnc to omega let your leaders know that either you can serve as a co tank, or at the very least, be able to keep it stunned with a 95% success rate (at least that's how I parsed with relic body + 2x stutter step + 12% mag acc gear)

edit: typos and such...

10/10 Verthandi's eyes! OAT Athame is mine! I'm already 5/10 Chukwa's Eggs and 4/20 Cuelebre's Horns so it's still a while until it's finished, but all that will be is an increase of 2 DMG in the end so I'm not in much of a rush anymore.

How did you get people to help with verthandi? She doesn't exactly have any in-demand items so I expect it wasn't easy.

I solo/duod the pops for Verthandi and then popped them during my linkshell's VNM events for most of them. There was a big lull in events so for 2 pops, I payed another group 100k to kill them for me (the price was static regardless of how many eyes dropped).

Charis Tiara +1 get! Very easy if you kill Granite Borer instead of doing quests. A good setup is WAR/NIN THF COR WHM RDM. RDM is interchangeable with SCH or DNC. Make sure someone runs the gamut of spells or weapon skills to try and hit weakness, as that will make it drop 4 seals instead of 0~2. The fight itself is pretty straight forward, barely much of a strategy beyond barfira, magus roll, shellra, and keeping shadows up.

You pop it with a withered cocoon at the ??? just west of all the gullycampas. It's just south of conflux 7 in attohwa.

+ 1 Stabbies completed

Hope they stick to the "one trial per update" formula as it was much easier to get everything done this round.

Charis Tiara +1 adds an extra critical hit. So if you use 5 finishing moves, you'll start six attack rounds with a critical hit.

Also got Charis Tights +1! Went from 21 stones to timing out between spamming Granite Borer and Manohra. ; ;




Edit to avoid double post: Charis Toeshoes +1! Armillaria, the funguar NM, is your easiest choice. Very easy to blink tank, I never got hit from a physical attack on my THF and I was tanking almost the entire time. The only thing is that Dark Spore and Silence Gas do a lot of damage, so you'll maybe want multiple healers. At lower HP he'll also gain an aura after using a TP attack that will inflict whatever status effect the TP attack is. Dark Spore makes blind aura, Spore makes paralyze aura, and Silence Gas makes silence aura. Also, we triggered weakness with Dispel.

Another strategy that you can utilize if you've got some good RDM friends: Pull Armillaria to the nearby bridge. Have two RDM/NINs on either side of the bridge, and a third on the bridge. If you only have two, one on the bridge and one on either side of the bridge. Basically they just nuke and bounce hate between each other.

Finally completed charis tiara +1 all from running the quest ><;

Wasn't as horrible as legs. about 80 runs total and ended up with 8 caller's, 5 savant, and 4 ravagers so pretty decent rate on the dnc seals.

Now gotta work on feet, but think I'm just gonna do NM drops...no way i'm running that quest multiple times ><;

Soloed Asanbosam (that bat in Abyssea-Misareaux). ^_^ Duoed and trioed it multiple times, and finally decided to try my luck solo. It took a long time, and there were a few very close calls (involving having to open door and put groceries away while praying shadows/fan dance hold :P), but I won! One blu seal closer to those legs.

That eva down - def down combo is pretty mean especially when it goes on never miss streak. >.>

Awesome to hear of everyone's accomplishments so far. I haven't had as much activity in XI lately due to lack of NA endgame shells that operate past midnight EST, but I helped a friend duo some tier 2 VNMs. The scorpion, Jyethesa or however it's spelled, the Farruca Fly, Capricornus, and Yacummama. Starting the long and arduous process of working up to the Twashtar with Rudora's Storm... but I'm having the damndest time getting the Black Triple Stars to pop. Been killing bats left and right for at least 9 nights total (in-game), and not a single pop. >_<

Even offering to pull doesn't get you in? :/ I've seen plenty mid-60s thf and nin there just for pulling.

As for accomplishments, charis tights+1 and atma of razed ruins, which kicks ***, did 16 min bat NM and 8 min colibri NM with it (had token 79thf for TH there tho, but he didn't do much dmg, he was there for rng seal from bat). ^_^

Sucks that my LS is doing all the other good atmas *cries after atma of voracious violet* while I'm 3 weeks away from FFXI because of family obligations... :(

Went 1/3 on Charis Necklace

First and Second kill were 100% solo. For the third kill I was on my way to get a friend the abyssite off of the Tonberries. I was the first to show up in the zone so I decided to play with Khalamari again. I got it to 60% when my friend showed up on SCH. He gave me windstorm and enfeebled Khalamari. At 30% another friend showed up on SMN so I had him give me the evasion aura with Garuda. At 6% I held the mob for about 10 minutes so my THF friend cold run across the zone to put TH4 on the mob. The whole fight I was spamming Shadowstitch/Dancing Edge/Sharkbite/Evisceration trying to proc Blue !! but it never happened. Later found out I pulled him at the wrong time DOH!

Finally got my AF3+1 feet completed last night which completes all of my +1 pieces so far. Will have some time this weekend so I'll get back to the feather step testing and see how much they enhance it.

Finally at the gear haste cap. It's always been a goal of mine to get there (even though with AF3 and abyssea belts it became much easier)
