Gblazed = Thief (Valefor)
# Jan 26 2009 at 8:25 AM Rating: Decent
Just a heads up in case any of you want to party with Gblazed on Valefor, he is a repeated offender of getting a party together, going after high-end treasure, after the drop he will quartermaster, then lot, effectively stealing the drop and then disconnecting. If you complain, he just blacklists you. There are over 10 situations of him doing this, with the Peacock Charm being the latest. GMs will not do anything about this, otherwise this useless fool would have been banned by now. And no, he did not steal it from me.
500 seals down and finally get lucky

I burnt an easy 500 seals on this bcnm trying to get a PCC. It gets to a point where you're just happy to win (yeah right).

Much like a lot of people I've done countless runs, starting off as NIN/BLM then the last 10 ish runs (not all my orbs obviously) as BLM/WHM.

I've seen PCC drop once and NI drop twice in that time.

I rolled 168 on the /random and ended up last on the 6 runs we did last night. Anyhow, we won (went 6/6 last night, fun fights on 3 x BLM) and I was amazed to get both PCC and NI drops^^ so thanks to Retribution and Jeagle on Leviathan for helping me finally get the big drop(s).

Now I can go along to the next runs without the desperation in the back of my mind XD.

I went 1/1 on this, did my run today with...
BLU/NIN (me)

I used my orb first and things went bad right from the start, Breakga went off.
Thankfully it (somehow) failed to petrify the other Blue Mage so he was keeping us alive until the RDM and myself were off Petrify.
As soon as i was off it, hit up Azure Lore (We were in trouble) and zerged the hell out of my Compound Eyes.
The other BLU took down his Eye not too long afterward.
I used a Refresh Drink and ran back down the hill to finish the main eye off.
It was a close fight thanks to a rough start. I got knocked down to 9 HP thanks to Firaga when i was getting Utsusemi up. I would have died if it was not for the other BLU stunning right after.
Soon enough, the eye goes down... we run up the hill and pop the crate without comment. Then i see things like this in PT chat...

I didn't dare believe it, but since i was set to Quartermaster i looked at the bottom of my bag and sure enough there it was, Peacock Charm.
Thank you to Roch and Imoyia!

Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

How charged with punishments the scroll.

I am the captain of my soul.

Did this BCNM about 2 weeks ago, did it 6 times, and only managed to come away with 1 copy of Ni. ><

About a week later, 3 of us, NIN, BLU, and RDM (me) decided to give another shot at it. Re ran it 4 times, and got 3 PCC! and 2 Ni! It was rather insane, as our NIN had done this BCNM over 50 times without ever seeing the PCC drop, and got to see 3 in one night. xD That was a good night, to say the least, almost 7mil in about an hour of time, not counting the other crap that dropped, our 4th Run dropped pure crap. ^^

Did the UO run last night, because I needed NI.

We did your orb, your drops.

Went as 3 blms, set record at 3 minutes 3 seconds.

Out of the 8 run we did, I got Ni on both of mine.

7th run, we got PCC.

Going back today to try again for more Ni and PCC.
I am fed up!

I am fed up!

I have done this with my static group throughout a year at exactly 56 times total as of today. We are 0/56. RDM/BLM, NIN/WAR, NIN/WAR party. We have done the /random for a low number before opening treasure, same with /random for big. Opening treasure at a certain time. Disbanding party to opening treasure. Just pure praying to the gods of Atlanta. NOTHING.

Then to read these forums with people getting 1/1 or 1/4 whatever. Drives me mad!
I am fed up!

I seem to get better drops when I /random low lots before opening chests. Twice out of 5 runs total I popped the chest after doing a low /random lot and we got a PCharm on my run and Utsusemi: Ni and Erase on the other guys run using this method.

I know people are stressed on this BC because of the crappy drop rate but I suggest you do a low /random lot before opening it. It may just be a coincidence but this has actually worked 3 out of 3 times in my experiences, twice in Under Observation BC and once in Dynamis. I did a /random once some Koga gear dropped and it was a very very low /random. Like 23 or something. Then I lotted on the Koga Hatsuburi and my lot was in the 900s.

If anyone plays street style crapps they would know what "schooling the dice" means. I think of the /randoming before a lot is kind of the same concept. I know this game is completely based on chance with very few modifiers for drop rates but doing this method 3 for 3 has caught my attention enough to have to say something to the community.

Give it a try. You have nothing to lose anyway. I hope it works for you all. Good luck on the drops!

-p.s. If you try it please post some feed back here. This could be just coincidence and I am sure we are all very open to that possibility lol. I know I am. Thanks.
Reward it

I'm going to say it anyway, i hate this drop rate! On Somepage it says the drop-rate is 5% and i can understand that, i and my friends have done this BC and won 12 seperate times, and of those 12 wins we have seen 0 charms. 2 Erase, and one Ni.

Yet everyone in my LS has got the drop who has done it. Some are 3/4, others 5/10. I really am quite bitter about my luck with this BC, all i ever get is crap on my orb...out of 4 tries the best i ever got was phalanx. If only my LS's luck for drops was reflected in sky, they really need to turn on their "special drop powers" when were up there.

PCC and its price
# Nov 26 2006 at 2:01 PM Rating: Decent
LMFAO what a joke, i currently play on Ragnarok and Fenrir server and prices sure have dropped, as of jan. of this year 2006 price was 28 mill for PCC, now nov. 25, 2006 its a meesly 4 mill, totally not worth the effort to do this BCNM since the drop rate is so horrible, well just thought ide add my 2 cents on the subject. 0/10+ atm and really at 4mill your better off hunting Mee Deggi for Ochiodo kotes ^^ which are 1.5 to 2mill atm. you will get 2 drops of kotes before you get 1 PCC and it wont cost you your seals ^^
PCC and its price
# Mar 03 2007 at 3:56 PM Rating: Decent
you should really stop your crying its sad, ya the price was high at one time because of all the RMT now the price is finally falling back to wear it should be around. i think it really should only be 2mil when ah has 8 in it and only 2 sell and rest get sent back its called supply and demand.btw its selling for 3.2-3.5 on seraph now glad prices are finally getting back to normal.

still since im not a mnk/nin/sam but a drk that loves acc... might as well sell the 2 o. kote that u get within the time that ur talking about sell em for 2mil each then buy this for 4 mil and keep it forever cuz ill probably just lvl my drk to 75 and get abyss, blood, hetacomb, homam, or adaman gear...
droped today
# Nov 16 2006 at 4:18 PM Rating: Decent
Well me and two of my LS mates went and did this BCNM, first time we got crap and the best drop was erase.
Went again this time my orb and before i see the items obtained the NIN i was with starts "WOOTING!!" 3 sec later i see peacock charm at the bottom of my list.
I started jumping up and down. My buddy was camping argus at the time too, lol isn't it ironic?
Dropped on a waxing cresent moon can't remeber the day.
Thank you so much Ari and Smokey.
You guys rock!!!
Set up was NIN/WAR NIN/WAR(me) and RDM/BLM
simple strat. NIN's tank the two outside mobs while the RDM kites the Big mob in the center. Went pretty good, a couple scares but nothing major. The sombering eye likes to spam firega alot!!
Now to help my buddy get his Peacock amulet so he leaves me alone :P

I hate to point this out to you, but you'll have to sell the charm you have before you get another one seeing as how it's rare and you can only have one at a time and all...

Last one I looked at on Titan went for 9.1 mil ; ; Just got my nin to 41 (taking to 50 for CoP missions) to do this BCNM, and the price drops by about 4 million. Oh well, 9 mil is still alot more then I have atm, lol.
drk set up?
# Aug 02 2006 at 9:03 AM Rating: Decent
anyone know a good set up that includes a drk? i was thinking drk/nin, rdm/nin, and nin/war.
have the ninja tank the main mob, while the drk and rdm take on the 2 side mobs? just a idea.
my main job is drk and dont really wanna try it with a different job.
set up with drk

Got the charm on my first try. Had the "prefered" setup of 2x NIN and 1 RDM to kite Sobbing Eye. The NINs nuked one Compound Eye each, and then took the Sobbing Eye together. Very easy fight, but had some problems on first fight because of RDM DC, so we ran out of time >_>.

Anyways, Got Utsusemi: Ni and the Peacock Charm, on my very first try on this BCNM, and I was in /ecstacy!!
2/3! but one was stolen or something
# May 26 2006 at 6:09 PM Rating: Good
Ha, fun fight. out of my 3 orbs i've traded i got 2 charms! but.. I lent it to my close friend who lent is to his friend... and then it was gone.. and that was at the time it cost 20 mil O.O;

No. The Peacock Amulet, which has the same stats and drops from Argus, is rare/ex. The Peacock Charm, which drops from the BCNM, is rare only.

5 million on Fenrir now but fluctating in price. My theory is that people are selling this item to buy equipment for the new jobs. It would probabaly be the time to buy this item now...if you have 20 million Gil...

First of all, I would like to say our group made the impossible possible. The dynamic trio: Ranz | Valint | Echizen.
Jobs? We went as [DRG/WHM RDM/WHM PLD/WHM] wasnt too hard we jump in buff up, then full rest. We run in while RDM kites the Sobbing Eye, while me (DRG) and PLD focuses on the Compound Eye on the right. After we kill the first compound eye, RDM runs back with the other 2 and we grab another compound eye. It dies, then we rape the Sobbing eye. Must have to say it wasnt too hard, but the problem is we spent over 200+ seals and been getting crap drops, the best we ever got was Fire Spirit Pact. YES! we tried Full Moon and New Moon, didnt do much of a difference. This BCNM is a waste of time and seals, that is why this Charm cost so much!! Good Luck and its not worth it.

200 seals means you've done about 5 orbs worth. PCC is, for most people, a very uncommon drop. It was my 660th seal that finally got me one (21st orb of my own).

you better tell'em how we (another die-namic trio) effed up on the easiest BCNM in this game >_> (jeez, I can't believe I registered here, I can't believe YOU did O_o)
let's go do the 40 again, I wanna buy the Leaping Boots, so i need 3 scrolls of utsu: Ni to sell ^_^b
