I'm still try to do the old song and dance to get my LS to help me with an Almace


Meh..You have THF. Just get someone to come /WHM with minikin atma and you can solo any bri NM in La theine. I did half my popsets with me on NIN and dual boxing my BRD. No help required. Bri was pretty relaxing and it gave me something to do every morning. Not only that, almost every pop gave me two helms. Out of all my 50 helms I only got one helm three times. Anyway if it's bri you're worried about, he's the least of your worry's.

Sobek is a completely different monster though. Gukumatz is probably the most camped mob in the game. Tonight there was 11 NIN's in the zone out of 40 people, and a constant 5-15 people camping Guku (Yes, at one point I was targeting more invisible players than I was mobs). I managed to get the claim three times in about 7 hours. I would've been done a lot sooner but my 10/13 red proc's isn't good enough I guess. D: I'm 34/50 Skins right now, but I still feel this is going to take a long time. Guku is just really hard to claim. I'm 6/16 on seeing two skin's with Sobek, and we've had a THF every time. I get more help than I deserve with Sobek, but I still feel so far off from it.

I actually am keeping a list of every NIN I see in the zone more than 4 nights in a row claim spamming Gukumatz, and my list is 19 people long.

Yeah...It's really really horrible. I wanted to go for Almace for my RDM, but i'm not putting myself through this ever again.

You won't get any doubt from me when it comes to Guku. I still shake me head when some people in =10 say Abyssea overcrowding and competition isn't a problem when they totally disregard the fact that people may have a specific reason for going for a mob like KI or a drop. It's fun watching the people who have pop notifiers, too, as they'll be standing still for the 15m or so, only to suddenly run right for it without having any kind of Widescan or party member out there to call it.

Do you want me to slap you? <.<; you're already 34/50, with a few more popsets, and you were like, 10-15/50 this weekend

Well the reason I got 25/50 so fast was because the entire LS needed Balance coins anyway.

I honestly thought there was a guy there like this last night..Wrote his name down so I can avoid going in the zone in the future if he's there. He was claiming Guku over and over again and never popping Sobek, and his search comment was "Balance coin 600k, Balance Card 900k, /tell."

Monopolizing so people have to pay? /shrugs. He got the claim 5/6 times, too, I believe.

Yeah, **** like that is why the timed NM KIs need to be available in gold chests. There's a difference between selling excess items you don't need or at least arranging beforehand as opposed to just killing it so others can't have it and be forced to buy from you.

I was expecting Ulhuadshi to be smaller, boy was I surprised! Since NM Sandworms seem to all have the ability to take your 2hour, I decided to go nuts and Ascetic's + Fanatic's Drink > Chainspell Aero IV > Revitalizer + Fanatic's Tonic > Chainspell Aero IV, which took him down most of the way. Shortly thereafter, killed and got a Jewel of Vision for my trouble as well.

Fun fight.

Houseaux +2. Took longer to get the seals than it did to get the stones. Stupid Seps only wanted to drop SCH and RNG seals.

KIs from bigs only. I don't think there's any real magic number for a good amber count, though. Some feel the quality of augments is reflective of the number, but I'm not sold on the idea.

I'm pretty sure that Auto Refresh can't be on the hairpin unless it's from a big gold box, and even then it's probably around a 5% rate to get it.

So yeah, you will want maxed amber so that (nearly) all your gold boxes are bigguns. The KIs are pretty much a necessary evil. However, if your experiences are anything like mine, you're going to get so many more temp item chests than KI chests that your fury and/or ire will actually be directed more at the former rather than the latter.

Finally got around to fighting Maat for G5.

Why do people keep insisting that's a hard fight?
