I play on Asura, generally friendly server. I did my first pdt axe by shouting for someone to sync too. Ended up with four others and their friend as our sync on their way to do the same thing. The rest can be annoying but not horrible. Taking a break right now on 200 Aquans during earth day/weather. No map of Mt Z.

I knocked that trial out on Wespes in Temple of Ug[tab].

Earth weather happens every now and then. If you wait for it to pop, you can knock the whole trial out in one go, easily.

Plenty of other stuff to do in there while waiting for weather, too. Camp the NM for that katana with +cooking skill, farm a Hornetneedle for the lulz, whatever.

I was lucky someone was soloing in Pash so I asked them to sync and bee kill during weather

ALSO. A tip - as long as you have started city path voidwatch (thus filling VW requirements) you can get the first tier TOAU warps without actually doing any progression. These include a mount Z warp. You don't even have to have ever been to the zone to use it. (I had never been to the zone when I used it, to my knowledge, anyway)

Yeah I knew about that and no do not have to ever gone into zone to use the VW Warp. With no map though, it was more a hassle to find the spot with the pugils. I found them last night, and about half way done with first axe. Was searching for the ki to open Halvung Gate and ran across them.

Following up with this I am back to the game recently and I'm doing my -pdt axes as well. I am going to be able to afford to do them both up to the -9 pdt spot with the gil I currently have.

In your opinions, should I spend the rest of my gil to finish those axes or is there a better upgrade for the 800K. I don't have a single new item as far as gear since my BST has been 99 about 3 days. I'm still working with Hauby+1 and B Hiadate type of gear. (basically all the stuff from 75WAR)

Any suggestions as the first upgrades while I try to figure out gil?

you will get geodes as you do the trial. At least enough to get 1 axe to 10% - I was short just 2 or so to get both axes to 10%

Honestly you need R/EX equipment more than bought equipment, can't think of much at or below 800K that is worth buying (monster boots +2 upgrade items might be one, monster gloves +2 might be another)

In my opinion get your ferine pants +1 ASAP though. They are a wicked piece, even better at +2 but very good even at +1, and the seals can be soloed (or just ask people farming KI for sobek for any that are dropping to the floor even)

Just farm the geodes though.

The only buyable upgrade I can really suggest off hand without knowing the rest of your gear is brego gloves, I think they are very good gloves. They run above a million on my server though, I see other servers have lower prices though, so maybe you'll be lucky.

Yeah, as I was looking up stuff last night it appears that most of the stuff I need is just going to be picked up over the long haul by getting the appropriate drops. So I'm gonna def just sink the gil into the axes. And hopefully I'll pick up alot from just finishing the trials.

Honestly, I've quit using my -pdt axes after finishing my +Evasion axes. I have the ACP hat with -10% damage taken along with several other - damage pieces (think I was around -34% pdt) and the + evasion axes save me more in pet food than the -PDT ever did.

Liz i did at d-12 entrence in western desert, fast, Amorph i did in halvug past the metal gate then to the south drop down the ledge. Did Bombs eldime(s) also did 2 axes so double trial arcane and bombs, then did skele/bombs. then finished up skele only at different entrance. Going to do fish at the suggested place on wiki. was pretty fast trials, worth the time.

The amorph kills can also be done in Eldieme [S]. Don't remember the entrance but think its I -7. Four hecate eyes in the tunnel, maybe three. Kill gobs if dust storms are still up for geodes and titanites.
