Ok -- so lets make a schedule.
===============------------==============---------------======== Team Dark Sparks:
(** Note Complete, missing some key members)
Kael - DRK (dmg, distortion SC)
Jersey - THF (Dmg, distortion SC with Kael)
Akiox - RNG (Heavy dmg)
Krogen - PAL (tanking)
?? Alesandra ? - WHM (you down? ^^ - barfira anyone? :P Don't worry about being 43, you wont have to keep us alive for very long, he's <Easy Prey>)
Still another mage type -- pref. a RDM but BLM is fine ^^
The fight isn't hard. Anyone else who needs to kill DS for their AF hands or just wants to come have some fun -- please let us know. Proposed Time to do it
- Saturday, any time, say 6pm PST? I don't know what that is in everyone else's time, so please do the conversion and tell me if thats ok for everyone. I figure it's a nice round time frame. Expect to give up about an hour, two at the most. The fight itself will take about 2 mins, but traveling to Castle Baileys could be difficult if even ONE person doesn't have teleport capabilities. PLEASE PLEASE take a minute on your own if you don't have it to go to Xcarbard and get yourself the gate crystal. You can get a map of the Northern Regions by:
1. Going to Sandy, buying some humus off the AH and activating the quest off the NPC in the big cathedral place (the royal grave in the back) and immediately trade the NPC the humus for a map. Some fame is required to get the quest, but not much.
2. Trading a Flame Degan (AH -- swords, 8K) to an NPC near the consulates in Relude Gardens (sp?) above Upper Jeuno.
That should cover maps, and if you get a crystal on your own (E. Ronfaure >> B. Glacier >> Xcarbard, I think) we can just pay Jellsica 3,000 gil (I'll pay) to warp our party/alliance.
* * * NOTE * * * Bring PLENTY of sneak oils (an entire stack if you can, I'll have 2 on me anyway (I camp coffers there alot due to the lack of competition, and the fact that I'm not stealing anyone's AF as a result -- who said thieve's have no honor??) and if you CANT invis yourself, bring some Prism Powders too. "But JP! We have mages with us!!" -- I know. It's so much easier to worry about your own self than 1 or 2 mages having to deal with "my sneak is wearing" every 3 seconds. Believe me, a sneak oil typically lasts longer anyway. I know the way to DS, and it's RIGHT inside the zone almost. We can make a mad rush there with ONE sneak oil.
If you need assistance, try to set your macro like this:
/p Wait up guys -- Re-sneak/invis'ing!
/item "Sneak Oil" <me>
/item "Prism Powder" <me>
-- If your sneak begins wearing off, you MUST cancel it out before applying a new one or it won't have any effect. Also note that reapplying the sneak WILL cancel invis. We'll be facing all types of aggro in there, but our PT can handle them if they aggro. I'm just informing those who don't know, for those like me who like to do their homework. ^_^ Ok, so Saturday (this one coming up) -- 6pm PST
(unless that doesnt work for everyone) we can meet in lower Jeuno and plan to head out to Xcarbard and kill DS. Afterward we can have our mages warp us out, or whatever you want. If you have enough sneak oils / prism powders I can give you a tour of the castle and where coffers pop if you'd like, at your own risk of course :)P Check Back here regularly to see about updates on this scheduled mission, please!
Also, please...don't let your brothers and sisters down. If you volunteered, we're counting on you to be there :( -- If the time doesn't work, noone will think badly of you if you just say so here. Please don't not show up because you had something you had to do. This is a volunteer basis. Remember that the more people help each other, the better the chances are that we'll be there for you
when you need us.
---------------------------------------------------------------- The Mission 2-3 Dragon Team
Dusky - WHM
Jersey - NIN (tank)
Chixxor - MNK (dmg ^^)
Drift - ?Job? (person who needs it)
We need 2 more guys!! :)
Proposed Time - Sunday Evening, around 5pm PST (this one coming up). Please convert this time to your respective time and tell me if this is ok? Won't take us more than an hour, including time to travel. Remember that you will be level capped at 30, so try to equip accordingly. I've done it almost naked except for weapons before, though I wasn't tanking at the time.
Remember that the strategy (for those of us who may have forgettin :P) is to sleep the dragon, kill the eye, kill the dragon. Lets break the time limit!!
Next week: Rank 4 for those who need it, Duratta
I need alot of our higher levels to raise their hands for this one (I'm down):
AF3 is the hot issue recently with my friends and I. Personally I need my RDM AF3 "Pimp Hat" I have to kill a NM bogy in Feiyn and then a NM statue in Garliage.
Guys? This probably needs an alliance... Edited, Mon Oct 25 20:01:25 2004 by Jerseyprophet
