Historical Information

The picolaton, according to folklore from the French region of Franche-Comte, is said to be a bird that would use its pointed beak to prick the buttocks or heels of children who would straggle along pathways in order to speed them up. Parents would often promise their children that they'd take them to see the nests of the picolaton, said to be the most amazing nests ever created, as long as they were diligent in their studies and obedient.

Got the Thrakons Breastplate a few hours ago. We took him down with 71drg/whm (me), 75war/nin, 70thf/nin, and 75sch/rdm. It was total overkill. The sch gave us all stoneskin and phalanx before engaging Picolaton. He was around or under 50% by the time he even broke stoneskin on the warrior because we all got 300% TP before starting the fight. I didn't even have to use healing breath. I think the sch used two cures the entire fight and one was because of my spirit link. He spams Stormwind every few seconds which sucks for your wyvern.
