Astral Signa

I got one yesterday. I confirme no hidden effects. I tested it in dynamis-sandy for my first fight and Leviathan missed spinning dive 7 times over the course of dynamis. I usually miss a BP once a month with elemental staffs (not just water but any staff). Its prolly just bad luck. I think this staff should be equipable by SMN/WHM/BLM/RDM, it would actualy be a usefull staff again... and would offset thge addition of the Bahamut's staff.

Also not having all the elem staffs is so worth it, I actualy feel like I personaly dont weigh as much!

Got my Astral Signa back this week. God I missed having it.

Even though bahamuts and HQ elemental staves are "better" its an item most SMN will never have. Hell, it also saves me 7 spots in my inventory on SMN and the extra 1 MP per tick is so minimal with over 1200 MP, I could care less.

Plus the 18 MP on it makes up for 18 ticks of a HQ staff.

Happy Hunting!

I just got one of these as well and it does *seem* like my avatar are hitting harder... I did Chaotic Strike on a T mob in sky and did 2100 damage. I NEVER did that before. But could just be coincidence....

Anyways, great staff. I love having the inventory space. Will server me well until I beat Bahamut for his :)

I just got one of these nice to have ,personally my avatars have been hitting harder from what i been seeing , Ialways use Titan on those new Mamool beastmen he never broke 1k till i had that signa ,i mean never. I also think it's Random increase on avatars , well just giving u my 2 cents
Bahamut staff

one of the easiest fights ever imo

NIN NIN BRD WHM can do it and maybe a THF for pull

THF pulls it down PD in front of the cordidor you fall into
NIN vokes tzee from him
THF dies and NINs start fighting
haste & dual march does the trick
2h can be a pain but it never killed me once in the 6 times I fought him

0/6~ on it ... he sucks in his drop got a daylight dagger every time tho

hidden effects?
# Aug 29 2005 at 10:52 AM Rating: Decent
talked to a few of the SMN lucky enough to use one of these.... NO solid proof of hidden effects yet acept widely belived it enahances avatars a bit. As for per cost its is only -2 as it states. I have personaly used one for day really saw no difference.
keep in mind this was at one point the best staff for a SMN as it was around LONG before the elemental staves. As for now it seems it is and always will be... a status symbol.

two days ago was a great day ^^
we got it!

there has only been 4 reported sights of this on our server. Which makes it 5 now. here is the link to the post i started about getting the drop.


got screenies of the drops there.
# Jul 06 2005 at 11:07 AM Rating: Decent
Yeh the whole point is you dont have to buy 8 staffs which would cost loads, or bother having to change them every time you use another avatar. If i was SMN id use this over elemental staffs.

this is worth more than 8 HQ ele. staves.

A Mil on your server? there is no way is that cheap, was it sold on the AH? if so, look at the date again. it's current market value is for sure more than a Mil, at least on Fenrir server. Our LS got one the other day, but they are planning to sell it for 50Mil. Is hard for me, as a 75 smn to see such a rare item selling to the others. well, my LS is all about fairness, they will need me to pay 50Mil if I decided to keep it .... ***** that!

seems like bull to me ... i don't care if it's 2k or 50 mil ... greedy LS to put gil before the needs of one of their own ...

they should at the least give you use of it until someone is interested in buying it ... a good number of LS's on my server do that with Kraken Clubs and Juggernauts

I agree, linkshells are there for the betterment of members. Any linkshell worth belonging to would put the equipment needs of a member before the desire for gil. It's absolutely sickening if they will sell a piece of equipment that a member honestly needs, rather than help that member out and let them use the equipment until they can find something better.

In a perfect LS where you can trust that summoner to stay with the LS and help with LS missions, quests and adventures, I'd totally agree.

But a 50mil item is inviting drama if it isnt sold.

There are several questions the LS will have in the back of it;s mind. What if that summoner leaves? What if another summoner wanted it? What if that summoner can't help someone who helped her get the staff?

Drama, you can have this.

The only way a LS should be obligated to give an item to a member is if the quest was intended for the member from the moment they boarded their chocos to go to Castle Oz.

But the LS should make it clear. If everyone engaged with the full intention of giving that 50mil drop to the summoner, then all is cool.
If the summoner saw the drop *then* chimes up "I'm the summoner! I need it! Let me have it!" That is foul. That summoner should have let everyone know that she intended to claim the astral signa *BEFORE* Tzee was even pulled. It is not fair to have someone fight for something they think they may get a reward for. It is the responsibility of the person who intends to claim the prize to make *CLEAR* he intends to claim the prize from the outset!
LOL this guy is a HNM. HAHA

Pfft Killed this moron, EASY.

Had 13 people
mostly DD

Have a Bard, Ninja, stay on him, dont do any damage really. The rest of the party kill the adds at the top and one of the sides (left or right ramp, doesnt really matter, we did right side). THE ENTIRE ALLIANCE (except for the Bard, ninja and one thf) stay on the side, way down and out of range from this HNM. You do this because when he two hours (astral flow) will almost likely kill the bard, nin, thf.

While the Bard, Ninja and Thf, are dealing with this HNM, the rest of the alliance takes adds and spawns. Then when he is at about 70% have some more damage on him, no more than 4 people up there though fighing him. When he two hours. WHM two hour as well on party, and everyone just beat the **** out of him. This will give him TP, which is a AOE, Just make sure everyone is cured and kill him, should be really fast after he two hours.

If your Ninja happens to die from two hour, have PLD tank.

killed him, got the ignot, dagger and some other crap, but no signa.

The only hard part about this HNM was waiting 4 days without any JP knowing he popped. Took us 4 days to kill the lottery mob of this guy, which is every 24hours (think of Fafnir windows, he is just about the same). I am suprised that no one else was there and saw us. We can now try for him again.

Anyways, to kill his place holder, just really had a WHM, THF, MONK, RDM and BLM. sometimes didnt even have a RDM, but I wouldn't go up there without a BLM for sure.
If you are really good, just need a WHM and THF. To kill the place holders.

For all you summoners out there who love drooling over high level equipment even though you will probably never get it ...

Oh ya... How much you want to bet?

This has to be one of the worst drops in the game, currently i am 0/20 on this fought Tzee on full moon, new moon 3 75 thfs and still nothing. I think there are like 5 on our server, and seems imo you camp it it woln't drop, yet random people just finding him get it lol, but it is a nice item to have, and is more of a status symbol for smn's than anything

Updated: 1/21 FINALLY lol

( excuse the words of joy lol )

"Duhhh, that's why you change staves when you summon the opposite avatar."

The Random increase and decrease on Avatar cost per second after using a blood pact is a flase statement. I have an Astral Signa, and have never seen Perp. cost change after a BP.

Happy hunting

PS granted i MIGHT be wrong on this, but in ALL my experience i have yet to see this happen.

Also SE, if this isnt true, it would be a good addition to the Staff, the HQ elemental staffs should not trump a lvl 85 HNM drop that has like maybe 5 on each server. (which is rarer than kraken)

Hidden Effects

Ok, this wasn't my post, but you can find it at:
Well I finally got the Astral Signa..it was the only one ever on our server..first drop seen in 1 year hehe. Rawb got it for me woot.


Anyway..I wanted to share some of the hidden effects I noticed. First I summoned Fenrir. Normal perpetuation cost is -7 per tick with Astral Signa + Vermillion Cloak.

Summoned Fenrir > Eclipse Bite > Perpetuation cost is -4 a second.
release > resummon > -7 per tick > ecliptic howl > perpetuation cost is now -0 a second.

I tried that with Garuda.
Summoned Garuda > Predator Claw > Perpetuation cost is -5 a sec.
released > resummoned > Aerial Armor > Perpetuation cost was -8 a sec.

When you use an ability there is a random chance of your perpetuation cost being added to or taken away from. I got to sell all my staves hehe so much more inventory space. ^^

You'll notice that when she uses BloodPacts, her prep cost for them goes down. But then again, other people on that thread are reporting differently.. so I could be wrong. ><

I obtained this from Tzee Xicu the Manifest with my LS several days ago. Sadly no hidden effect from my observations so far...
