Carbunkle Ruby made easy

As a 41BST on my way back from doing AF Axe quest I decided to see what the Kraken was up to. He was there and checked DC so I Charmed 2hr'd and then went to town with him. He seriously PWNed everything around the island including all the leeches that drop The Carbunkle Ruby for Summoner flag quest. Basically what I'm getting at is:

If you want an easy Ruby so you can become a summoner, PT up with a 40+BST, declare Marshal Law on the Leeches, let the BST have his fun while you tag along, thank the BST when he's done cleansing the island, and then roll out.

It's that simple.

The fishing rod is for a somewhat new quest in Lower Jeuno, "Hook Line and Sinker." (It's what I'm looking for at the moment actually ><) You need to have completed (I believe) Chains of Promathia mission 3-2, or anyhow be at around the same point you need for some of those other quests (Deucal Hostpitality, and the chameleon diamond quest).

Basically, if you get that far in Chains of Promathia talk to the fisherman wandering around the far end of Lower Jeuno (fairly near the exit) to get some cutscenes and kick it off. Not sure what the reward is.

I belive that this item is used for some new gobbie bag quest and you need to complete some mission or some new thing to get it. So if your not going to do any of those its abousolutly usless.
other dropped items

I was fishing today, and fished a kraken up. Upon its death, it dropped a blue rock. FYI: the day was waters day which may explain why the item dropped, this mob does drop more than just water crystals. I've also gotten shells from these guys.

Decent = one level below... or two levels... or three levels...

But probably around 38-40 nonetheless.

I've seen people do stuff like that before and they ahouldn't be playing this game. Ruins it for everyone. Should be things built into the game to prevent beastmasters from doing stuff like that

I hate all the people who think ALL BSTs enjoy MPKing. This guy is just an extreme ***, BST in no way deserves a nerfing.
# Apr 05 2004 at 12:17 AM Rating: Decent
Its not that hard, I killed it at level 38blm 19whm you just have to know how to fight. You get certain spells for a reason EI: sleep and bind hehe use them. The ony in quifim that is... any other I haven't tried.

sorry about preceding blank message.
Anyway I tried to help someone on their BST quest.
He was a RDM and had sneak and deodorize (though sneak is all that mattered) and went to the flowers. The Kraken turned around so I thought it was aggroing but as my Jump occured I realized he was just turning around for the heck of it. Anyway I ended up taking it on solo.
It conned DC, Low Evasion to me, a level 40 Dragoon. Now, I don't have the best equipment known to man, but it's pretty good (emperor hairpin, other +1 stuff). I got pretty well owned. I took it down to 1/3 after getting my weaponskill off, but it double attacks and tears you up. Anyway I suggest not taking it on till 45, and even then only if you're a melee class.

rated too weak to be worthwhile at lvl50. after getting bst, i subbed it with my lvl50 job.. and i charmed it. :D

Rated too weak to me down in qufim last night (I being level 50), he died none the less. Rated Decent Challenge to lvl 37 Paladin friend of mine alter on also.
It's not that bad - everyone still too hung up on sea horror, Kraken doesn't even come close to that bad *** :)

Hmm, a 52 MNK on his two hours annihilited it, and you threw in a few cures, you didn't really have much of an impact on the mob. If that MNK had been the same level as you, you'd be dead.

There are 2 types of comments I find useless on these forums :

A) "You can buy it at AH". No, we WANT to know where the item comes from, not that other people know how to get it and are selling it.
B) "It was easy with a lvl (50+) with me". Of course it was easy, you were with someone that could have soloed it and you basically just witnessed an execution. Comments like these are rampant in the Ninja and Samurai flag quest threads.

In closing, the first poster was right, Kraken WILL kill you, especially since if you're seeing him you're probably doing the BST quest.
