I camped Cwn Cyrff for hours to get a Swan Bilbo (If you must know why, it's a really **** sword, very good for 60 and even up to 75, deals blunt damage, and it's rumored to have been owned by the bard from the AF quests). However, first kill he doesn't drop, second go around I get killed and have to HP back, kill him and he doesn't drop.

Yay Accomplishments!
That does qualify as an accomplishment, right? <---(Only in his own mind.)

Beat Maat yesterday on my BRD70 Taru dual boxed char (Melodyhp on Bismarck), he actually killed me but I reraised and casted Foe Requiem VI and that made him quit.

Got Opo-Opo Crown a couple hours after the Maat fight too.

BRD51 with Apollo and Terra staves.

Full AF (and stored body, head, and feet)

Minstrel's Coat.

I'm pretty much having a blast playing this job. Nice change of pace from DRG and PLD.

Going back to skilling up song skills ***** Level Sync.)

Edit: Singing Earring. Wind earring won't show up on AH, so just going to wait for Musical Earring.

Finally got the 11/12 orihalcum ingots to pay for Marduk head, and borrowed the last one from a friend.

So the Marduk Tiara will be in my hot little hands tomorrow! In the meantime, I went ahead and stored my bard relic set, since the head was the last piece I was wearing full time.

I also picked up Choral Cannions+1.

Two more steps closer to the perfect March setup!

(Horn is at 40/64 and 60/70. It's gonna be a while.)

So I hit 75 brd the other day, and personally I don't like bird merit parties, but I wanted to cap XP so I figured I'd do some campagning. I threw a mishmash of gear together, grabbed some random dagger and went out hunting.

I have to say, it's the most fun in campaign I've ever had. I was Brd/Whm (for reraise/erase/SS), I had some Jardiah/dusk/acc stuff on and was singing haste/ballad.

I was shocked at how much damage I was actually doing. Normal hits were in the 30s-50s and Evicerations up to and exceeding 400. After a two wave battle I walked away with 3100 experience points. I grouped up with a few regular campaigners and was earning a good 25-50% more exp than they were.

All in all, a very positive experience and a good alternative to the normal grind of a merit party. Give it a shot, you won't be disappointed.

Just hit 75 yesterday. My first job to 75.

It took me forever to get there, but since i'm a casual player I'm just so proud of myself. Now it's time to lvl more subs and look for endgame stuff.

Brd just rocks ^^

Killed Aspid. A.Body dropped. Bid all my shell points on it because I officially had nothing left to lot (for bard, which is all I lot) in endgame. The rest is salvage pieces and capping my craft. And stuff like BRD relic-1 where RDMs aren't trying to outlot me. Buggers.

It feels good.

I killed the melevolent spirit of a bard in Cape Rivere, and played graverobber by taking his Minstrel's Knife.

Why? I like graverobbing...
The knife is... decent.

On an unrelated note; 0/4 on Cwn Cyrff, first try campped for hours and fought an epic battle with Cyrff that lasted at least 30 minutes, all for a fatlotta nothing; second try campped for about 10 minutes, brought out my npc and beat Cyrff to **** for a fatlotta nothing.

Cwn Cyrff: Hey kid, want this Swan Bilbo...?
Me: Sure, I'll have it.
Cwn Cyrff: lolmeleebrd!
Me: O.O;

I... will... never... surrender!

I finally managed to get my Echo's Cape yesterday for bard.
Another thing I'm proud of is the loquacious earring I got about a week and a half ago.

Do you find that it's not actually blunt damage like the wiki says?

Actually it is blunt damage, just as wiki saids.
I tested it on undead with joyeuse as comparison, and the damage was significantly better which points to the fact that the wiki is correct.

Just turned in my marid leathers for Marduk Crackows. I'm now 3/5 completed Marduk pieces, with the 3/3 for the Jubbah itself waiting for me to magically become rich overnight.

Now if only the Giant Spiders would pony up some Enlil's Braes . . . I'd be done with Marduk forever.

I also have less than 1500 coins to go to be done with Gjallarhorn. Got my fragment a few weeks back. I think I'm finally close enough to actually turn in my stage 2 . . . so I'm going to do that soon. Exciting!

I tried it on the blunt-only ASA NM in Zi'tah and it didn't do any damage.

Given this fact and the fact that it doesn't actually deal Blunt damage to mobs that only take Blunt damage suggests that it might actually be Slashing damage.

To stay on topic though, I got Marduk's Tiara and Marduk's Dastanas this past week, bringing me to 4/5 on full Marduk (only needing the 15 body from Bhaflau to totally complete it).
