Finished the level 80 Kannagi in 10 days, but I guess that's not a RDM accomplishment. Popsets weren't hard to get at all lol.
Beat Rani today and got my Abyssite of Discernment finally (Finally!). Took Rani to 60% relatively easily, triggered Red, MNK brewed and spammed Victory Smite, took it from 60%->11% before terror even wore off, then he got Amnesia'd and just waited it out, killing her with a one final victory smite. I was really shocked how easy it was, considering all the nightmare story's I hear.
MNK or NIN is certainly one of the better jobs to have on it due to Subtle Blow and the various forms they can enhance it. I know Smite's a good WS, but I'm wondering if another would've been able to take it all the way down, though. Oh well, Discernment is pretty nice to have and I'm sure it'll make your remaining Sobeks easier to get to.
I'm still try to do the old song and dance to get my LS to help me with an Almace, but in general I've fallen behind on +1'ing stuff since I haven't been around as often (Which I guess is automatic DQ in the MMO world).
