Ok this was tried before, but I like the KI version so here we go. Post your warrior's latest accomplishment. I don't care if its dinging 20 and leaving valkurm(bigger than you think if its your first time) or that you just got sash from AV. Post it here!





I'll start.

Eh, we were in sky today and Faust was up. No PLDs were present so most people discounted fighting him. I was WAR/NIN and I figured what the ****, I'll tank him. I've done it before, however we had like 10 people. This time we had like a PT. People were a little apprehensive but we gave it a go. Was pretty fun and a definite challenge with NIN sub and not much besides Enmity, Voke and Warcry to rely on. I used Machauitl+1/Koenig Shield and used Spirits whenever I got 300 TP for more hate (which was surprisingly often)... seemed to work well, fight went smooth. My LS is used to working with WAR and NIN tanks though and thus has learned the concept of hate control.

Not a big deal really, but I find Faust to be a good challenge of hate holding ability... even moreso than gods and many other HNMs as you lose your hate much faster as he is pretty much unblinkable.

Nice execute Quor! I really need to play in PVP more.


Weeks been meh, I almost capped XP for the first time ever sunday night, but @3K the Nin in our party had to go watch the Manning bowl. Still nice since prior to last wed I had been floating around a 5K-10K buffer which blows when your complete endgame activities are Dienamis and Limbus (also makes it tough to merit). So now I can merit without worring about needing XP for a while.

I think I broke my record for total mobs agroed at one time in Apollyon SW first level, while farming tuesday. I swear all the Fir Bholgs were in an alliance. Gave the thief time to pop the chest though. 2 black rivits... Yay

I solo tanked Suzaku as WAR/NIN from 50% when our two ninjas went down. Had alot help from mages with stun and flash, but i kept hate and rarely got hit. Then later that night, me and another warrior kited the dragon for 15 min when ninjas went down again. Showed me that war/nin can be useful on gods, i had always wanted to come as war/thf.

I was going to make a new thread but this is the perfect place for my post:

2 and a 1/2 years. 97 Something days of playtime. And I FINALLY dinged 75!

Many, many thanks to all the WARs that continue to provide information and entertainment on these boards. Too many to list.

WAR has changed alot since I started. From "just being a sub-job" to being the target of every other nerf thread on the main boards.

My Quick history:
I started with WAR to 41. Went to PLD after that. I did not stray from WAR for very long. I thought I was going to be a PLD because I like tanking. I took PLD to 40. I got bored getting smacked in the skull without a chance to hit back, so back to WAR I went. Pretty much tanking all the way to 75 for my static composed of RL friends. I have tanked for most my friend's and my own WSNMs. I also tanked the Elemental Avatars. Nothing much beyond those.

I would have some better gear but I just helped finance my sisters Noble's Tunic. Noble's Tunic > Any WAR gear because it will keep me alive longer.


Edit: grammar

Congratz!

And kudos for being a nice bro and helping your sister out(and yourself if she is your main healer, tbh).

Your gear isn't too bad actually, you have most of the basics covered and alot of the things you can upgrade to are R/E quest(or pop NM) items or such so take time or large groups to acheive.

I got as far as 72 before I called it quits.

But my best damage total ever on an IT mob was 2025.
many have out done that but I screamed like a little girl I was so happy.

Tanking Dynamis-Xarcabard two weeks in a row. Condemnation isn't that bad, but mages whine too much when they end up getting hit by it, when they position themselves in front of a frontal attack no larger in width then my character.

Went toe-to-toe for a good while with the two-headed Mamool Ja Besieged NM, who's name still escapes me to type(Gal Ja Ja, something?). I think he's a WAR/NIN, which made the fight even more fun. He cheats, though. He has to have Dual Wield V+ and spams Utsusemi. Recasting Utsusemi in the middle of a Dual Wield attack doesn't work as well with him, as it does with the other Dual Wield/MNK mobs.

Grinded it out against Devout Radol Ja, dual-tanking with another WAR/NIN. Fight took about 20 minutes with a party of 6, because his HP at 10% or less seems to regen a few hundred HP per tick, and gets worse the further he gets to death. 2 Wind Crystals for the effort.

Tanked the Astral Candesence recovery BC, on the same run where we encountered Devout Radol Ja, after he wiped out a alliance for the same purpose. No win, though. Nothing 6 people can do by themselves. It's a very well-designed BC. You practically have to have 18 people rotating in constantly to wear them down.

.3 Parry skill off Proto-Ultima. Last tank standing on Proto-Omega for the win. Saved from a long timer gap, by Omega changing from four-leg to two-leg animation, or else it could have been worse.

Capped off Warrior's Charge. Deciding what to do with the other 2 upgrades. 1 in Tomahawk already, but dunno if I want to keep on with that. Decisions, decisions...

Most recent action on WAR for me:

- Steel Cyclone: O
- G.swd up to 228 skill! 9 more until I cap it!
- Traded in a SH +500k for Hauberk. Now I can be **** and still have a Haubergeon for level capped stuff.

I think I spend more effort gearing up my second string tank-only WAR job than my main MNK job. It's surprising but 2-handed weapon is so fun and a Mithra WAR is just soooo ****. I can't help it!

I can't wait until I cap g.swd, unlock decimation, level to 75, unlock ground strike, and start beating stuff up and tanking stuff as my WAR. Sigh, it's still a long road though, but loving every second and gonna savor it too.

Capped my marksmanship
Acquiring a Martial bhuj

I wish I could tank some gods too, but having 3-4 NIN in the alliance bascially means I have to go as WAR/THF almost exclusively.

It was last week I think: tanked proto-ultima a bit as war/nin.

We were kind of screwed from the start since we had no brd at all in the alliance... hurt also that the pld didn't go /nin like I asked him to and ls people wanted my war for some odd reason and wouldn't let me just go pld/nin. The three nins we had didn't have more then 1200hp.......

We'd get hit for 300-400 from ultima's melee and since no elegy/march/ballad anywhere our mages were hurting for mp a lot (rdms can only do so much, no cor either). I blinked away like seven or eight holy2's and stood my ground on two 1600dmg citidel busters with my hp topping 1980 but without a whole lot of +enmity (forgot some of my other pieces) and I still had hate to absorb the insta-cast holy2 afterward through blinks (never drew in another person after those two busters). This was my second proto-ultima fight and it lasted around 45 minutes... yeah, lots of pointless deaths :( . I hope they listen next time... It was sad since they were like war is great dmg yet there I am, no brd, hitting for 0 unless I had berserk up then it'd be like 10-20. The smn's avatars were hitting far harder/more often on their melee hits.... I went tutelary/mach+1 after about 20 minutes of trying in vain and just tanked/kited until the countdown (rdms were getting gravity on a lot).

Got my Tungi and Fransisca last week, thanks to some friends.

Tanked for about 40 mins in an XP PT on IT+ Defoliators when the PLD
DC/ed and a few people were close to level. Strapped on AF and went to town.

Now my PLD SP wants to XP this week ;; So I gotta hold on WAR a bit.
