Yay just got Loki's for my WS setup. Very happy with my progress over the last couple days.

Still trying to find a strong static so I can finish my AF3+2 while building popsets...feels so close yet so far away...

Semi-ding but finally got my +1 body today.

...problem is that using it now instead of rapp wouldn't be so great on dot since I would be going from 27% haste (yeah I know I'm wasting ~1% but can't drop anything atm) to 23%+5 DW. Want to at least get legs and feet +2 before I think about using it.

And speaking of +2...I hate Orthrus...that is all ; ;

Got rid of charis necklace and suppanomimi due to reaching the delay reduction cap.

Killed kutharei for a random person in under 5 minutes (from shout where no one was willing to help to 0 hp).

Got a random whm her last leg+1 seal by killing the misareaux bunny, after she wasted hours trying to solo it quest style.

Successfully cooked a hotdog while afk tanking dragua without dying or getting ketchup on my shirt. (300+ earth resist)

1/3 against Laila as of last night, on my 2nd account.

Screwed up the first try. Got medicated from something not on wikis medicated list (still not sure what, but I think it was a Hi-Reraiser) and didn't notice until I tried to use my Icarus Wing ; ;

2nd attempt she used nothing but Dancing Edges, and after 4 DEs of my own including self-skillchain she was still on ~30% and demolised me.

3rd attempt, used Pizza instead of sushi, upgraded my att futher by about +10 more, and completely destroyed her. Very nearly outright killed her :D I now have 20 odd Hi-Potions to get rid of...

On my main account I went 1/1 on Maat with almost painful ease on BLM (nuke, stun, sleep, nuke, done), so it was quite refreshing to try this fight, and I've been looking forward to it since I made this character. Certainly the first big challenge I've faced on DNC. Hopefully not the last.

Dinged 71 and 230 Dagger skill. Now working on Evisceration.

This is kind of a minor improvement, but I feel I should post it because it took me so freaking long. Like, it took me longer to do this than to get 50 Glavoid shells.

My 105th recorded pair of Dance Shoes from Sterling Specimen had Waltz +4% on it.

I'd estimate I did about 2.5 times that many all told, but I didn't start writing them down until I got suspicious of a moon phase-augment relationship (there was none). Now I can cap Waltz potency with Anwig/Body/Phurba/Plectrum/Roundel/Shoes, no need for AF2 hat if I'm wearing Phurba.

Next target:
Temperance Torque I guess?

Convinced a random RDM who seems like a nice guy but doesn't have much Abyssea experience that we could duo Sippoy. We wiped at 20%, but I didn't care because at exactly 57%, this RDM who had never so much as set foot in sky before the level cap increase Broke his Wall.

The smiling faces of the children are the greatest loot of all.

Another incredibly minor achievement, Furin Obi! (Merciful cape also, but not dancer-related)

Now I need:
Crit+3 Wivre Gorget (@2 right now)
Temperance Torque (0/2 today with 90THF+2)
Denali hands (for a better MDT build)

After that, I should be entirely done gearing Dancer. There are other sets I could make, but I don't have room in active inventory for them (more MAcc gear, more Acc gear for Steps, pure PDT set). Writing myself a better spellcast should take priority over all other gear improvements, but lab has been consuming all my mental energies lately and I don't feel like doing it when I get home.

I'm off to California for spring break. See you guys! I hope the update treats Dancer kindly. =p

PS. Ix'Mnk and Temperance can both be DNC soloed. I personally duo them with my THF/WHM mule though. TH, Stona, Dia II, and Haste make things faster, safer, and more productive.

Been kinda slow on DNC dings lately since I've been strictly in THF mode.

Finished +2 hands and feet this weekend. Body and legs to go still
Added heed ring, stormsoul ring, Torero torque and slither gloves for eva/SB build

Think thats about it, other than a few things here and there (still no epona's ; ;) I'm pretty close to having dnc where i want it gear wise...until the next update that is lol...

Ding 4/5 AF3+2! ^_^ only hands to go... that'll probably take a while, since it's from Azdaja >.> Hopefully they'll be added to some nice Scars NM next update.

I have made exactly 0 progress on Dancer gear since my last post. Actually, I kind of made negative progress because I accidentally NPCed my wivre gorget.

I've gotten 14 glavoid shells in the process of trying to replace my crit Wivre gorget. I might try to work on Ukon for my WAR and suspend the last few minor improvements to dancer gear.

TBH I have yet to find a good strat for azdaja...he's just a nasty NM to deal with...

We just ended up farming a few pops and I brewed and froze myself on the nearest martello. Had nin tank to hold it and everyone else focus on grellow. Got through 3 of them before brew wore off.

The brew strategy is a good one. If you're going to tank it and not brew, have your white mage out of party and Flail tank it. Keep in mind that his sleep wing will still hit out of party, so /SCH with Sublimation might not be a bad idea just to wake yourself up on WHM.

I was able to duo Azdaja with MNK+WHM. They MNK put azdaja on top of conflux 7(I think it's seven?) while myself, on WHM, stood way up at the top of the hill. The MNK just counterstance /war tanked him, killed in about 10mins or so

Tristitia isn't really as bad as he's hyped up to be. The mega spikes were patched a while ago. And if you use his own atma and war lion atma for lightning resist, and barthundra on top of that, the spikes don't hit too hard. I'd think the bare minimum to kill him would be tank (nin, mnk, dnc, thf) + whm + proccer. My group has two pops that we're going to try like that (our proccer is multipurpose, he starts as blm/brd, and if it's not that, warps and changes to blu) some time next week. Our first try was with pet tanking since saw a mention that it's dipper yuly soloable. Yeah, it is... but stack and half of petfood and 5-6 yulys is a bit on the pricey side. -73% mdt and the spells still hit for over 1k.

That's interesting. Do you think it has to be mnk for hp (since Azdaja likes to dispel cruor buffs) or would dnc or thf work? Bst with invincible pet can do it, but it's so godawful slow! 10 minutes sounds much nicer. :D

Not sure really; I think it has something to do with the counterstance tanking that also increased the killspeed. My MNK didn't have his cruor buffs or anything dispelled in 3 azdaja duos.

Oh? Well luckily I got the T3 Pop for the zone earlier so maybe I can get my last 3 from the shark. I'll see if I do it sometime this weekend.

Charis tights +2 done. Puts me @ 4/5 and half way done with body

FINALLY got some nebula cuffs synthed too. None ever sold on my server so pretty happy to finally get some. Now just need to find hat and ring and I'll be all set on VF.

Another one long time coming, but also finally redid my MKD hat with -waltz timer. That 2 seconds saved seems like I'm saving an eternity each time I waltz now =P (not really, but I am glad I finally did it)

Lesser ding, added a thundersoul ring to WS setup. Still kinda conflicted if I wanna use it over my augmented androit ring with 4 acc (especially since I don't have 15 WS acc on anwig anymore). But if anything, I'll still keep it for my THF.

Edit: just realized i said stormsoul when i meant thundersoul lol...

And one more accomplishment achieved today before I lose both my name and my server next week.

The one thing that I've wanted more than anything out of the last update ever since I first saw it in the .dat mining...



Epona's ring: O
