First day I got ToAu I saw him on the boat. And it was funny I watched a bunch of JP players get wiped out by him.

I saw this on a JP PLD about 2 months ago on the Lakshmi server. There was a HUGE language barrier, and I asked where he got the sword using the translator I got a response back that was pretty much unintelligible....well in English anyways, lol.
Didn't pay attention to whether we had the AC or not as I detest beseiged completely (gimme Campaign battles anyday). I do know however, Lakshmi is one of those servers that do indeed believe that if we lose the AC....the sky will burst into flames. As of todays date, I can only recall us losing the AC 1 time that I know of. :/
So, if anyone ever figures out how to pop this thing, do tell. I hope it's not the AC idea....cuz noone will ever get these drops on Lakshmi if thats the case. >.<;

Almighty Apkallu sighted X 2
# Dec 26 2007 at 10:13 PM Rating: Decent
a Jp player on Gilgamesh has a Birdman cape, he said it did in fact drop from Almighty Apkallu. And then today a group of 3 got Apkallu to pop but couldn't kill him before the boat docked, he was up at the beginning of the ride and it was on darksday. Nothing had been killed to make it pop on the Nash > WG boat, he just popped. Possible conditions are darksday pop, random pop, and 24 hrs without killing apkallu on Nash > WG boat, and that boat only because an Apkallu was killed on the prior WG > Nash boat.

Someone needs to fix the stuff above because Sanguine Sword 1000% does not drop from AA, and Birdman Cape does for sure. Skanda boots is still up in the air.

Well, SE stated that Almighty Apkallu "doesn't like to be left alone". So maybe killing the Apkallu is a bad idea. Instead, leave the regular one alone, and see if Almighty pops along with it. Just a theory...

There is an Apkallu that spawns on the boat back to Al Zahbi, could it be a placeholder? Like Ash Dragon and Biast? Just an idea. Doubt it but heh, never know. :c
Skanda Boots proof?

Where's the proof it drops Skanda Boots? As far as I know, noone owns them.

Hmmm....sounds like another to add to the top pld swords, imo anyways.

1. Excalibur
2. Khimaira NM sword(name I forget) -7%dmg +acc.,etc
3. Joyeuse
4. Sanguine sword

Though...joytoy has the coolest history for plds to me lol.

Maybe somone on the ship has to have high apkallu hate for the NM to pop?

Adjust the resolution of menus.
The main screen resolution for "FINAL FANTASY XI" is dependent on the "Overlay Graphics Resolution" setting.
If the Overlay Graphics Resolution is set higher than the Menu Resolution, menus will be automatically resized.

I watched a Drk pwn this guy on my 2nd trip ever to al zahbi. It didnt seem to strong, but i think it was b/c he had two whms helping :P. not sure why a drk specifically would be interested in a Sanguine Sword... maybe a rdm or pld...

Hey Aeonis, what's up? ^^

Have a question for you:

Do you remember if the Astral Candesence was lost at the time this thing was killed? We have a theory over on the KI PLD forums that this thing only pops when the beastmen have the Candesence.

If there's any info you can pass along, I'd appreciate it. :)

I'm on the Titan server and i've seen this sword in a besieged. And so far to my records, Titan has never lost a besieged. So, I think it would be impossible for this NM to spawn only when the AC is gone.

That theory cannot be true since if it were Siren's PLD would never see that Sword.~
I've yet to see a PLD with one on our server... <.<;
You scared me >.>

Um...then with what you said, it is possible that it pops only when the AC is gone, no? >.>;

Its the same on Gilgamesh. I've yet to see anyone on the server with this sword, because god for-effing-bid the AC is lost for a day or two. Hell, some act as if the sky will be engulfed in flames of torment and misery should the AC be taken. <.<;

I forget the server, but there is indeed a confirmed drop, screenshot and everything. (Unless of course he messed with a bunch of the .dats, which many people don't know how to do.) I often sometimes pray that the AC will be taken. *Runs fearing any incoming objects*

The server might be mentioned in the post below.

A quote that caught my eye from the KI forums which could make this theory true:

"Starlink got the sword on his first kill, from Whitegate to Nashmau, in a merit party that was headed there while the Astral Candescence was gone. It was an easy kill for the merit party. "

Source -- http://killingifrit.com/forums.php?m=posts&q=140384

Who knows, maybe it is coincidence. (sp?) However, all I'm saying is that it is possible. And as soon as the AC is gone, you bet I'll be camping this with my friends.

And if anyone is interested:

Definitions of Sanguine:

1. cheerfully optimistic, hopeful, or confident: a sanguine disposition; sanguine expectations. (Interesting, we as PLDs are often depicted and described as confident.)

2. reddish; ruddy: a sanguine complexion.

3. (in old physiology) having blood as the predominating humor and consequently being ruddy-faced, cheerful, etc.

4. bloody; sanguinary.

5. blood-red; red. (The sword is a red color)

6. Heraldry. a reddish-purple tincture.

7. a red iron-oxide crayon used in making drawings.

Nah I was joking about the fact that if the NM poped only when the Astral thing was taken by beastmen, Paladins on Siren would never get it, since the server did not lose a Besiedge so far. :O
Anyways, this sword is good, but too hard to get to even bother with it.

the sword drops from SM assault in Mamook also, so doesn't mean this NM is the only way of getting this sword

The sword has indeed dropped. There is an image included by the person who got it. I really want this thing o_o! Any info on how many people can take this NM down?

That's exactly what I was talking about. ^^ The NM hasn't appeared to anyone yet (unless someone is hiding something), which in turn means the sword has not dropped. The theory was that it was simply not put into the game yet. All of the information we've gotten so far on it has been from dats.

It's not in the game yet I don't think. Based on SE's announcement of new equipment, this should be added at October's update. Let's hope at least!
