I bought an eye cluster from a bazaar in Whitegate because i knew that some day I would need to get myself an OHat. I am not a crafter and basically I play a solo game. So tonight whilst getting some seeds for my gardening, I see a shout from a player I knew was a good and decent fellow. I took a chance and asked to join the run.
Leader kindly accepted me as a 70 BLU/RDM, after a little more shouting we headed to the temple and hence to the Den of Rancour, I had a "Paintbrush of the Souls" but had never been there before so Leader acted as guide for myself and 2 others. We had a party of, I believe 10 at the time. My sneak wore right in the middle of a bunch of slimes and the same thing happened to another player I requested that the party let me die as I had RR up. When I could, I raised and quickly cast sneak I was lucky and made it in time. Leader was there to guide me successfully to camp and returned to help some others including the downed player to our position. We buffed and cleared area with no trouble, We had two monks who were godly and tanked all but one of the attempts. No clusters lost, 7 hats obtained with one death due to Fireaga 3 during the battles. As you can imagine we were all pretty pumped, we had been randoming everytime the ??? was up to see whose cluster we would use next and after almost 4 hours, we had everyone their hats and were ready to go. Leader asked again as he had been doing periodicaly , if all had traded and gotten their hats, when a player who had joined us near the conclusion of the night, said he needed it. It had been a long night people were tired and yes, a little punchy so a bit of ribbing was going on and some people wanted to go. Somehow a mistake was made and some folks said goodbye and teled out, and others started to log. It suddenly dawned on us that we had indeed one more hat to get and now we were left with 6 players, not capable of fighting the NM with any great degree of hope for success . Regretfuly a decision was made to abandon the attempt with existing party, and for the leader and the player needing the OHat to return to Whitegate to continue seeking help to obtain the OHat. It wasnt really anyones fault but it did put a dampner on a very good night, The moral I think is that if you are on this run, indeed any run, make sure that everyone knows in what capacity you are with the party, in case when the time comes you find yourself loosing out. I was extremely sorry he didn't get his hat and would have stayed to help, if it had been possible.
do you need this?

Hi everyone. I have a cluster and had to work on the day my LS did a run on this. Im on almost everynight to check whats going on and usually play if something is so hit me up with a /tell and we can set a run up. I have 4 others who want a go at it, but it would be so much more fun with more people.

If anyone doing a bst run for O-hat on Ragnarok i would love to join. Ive been thinking on organising a run of my own but dont have the paint brush or the map over Den of rancor, so not being the ideal leader made me hesitant.
Also after reading all the post on people bailing ive gotten sh*t scared of joining a regular alliance. So it would be sweet to go down there with just 6 bst`s if its possible.

so give me a /tell im Dani bst 75 on Ragnarok

Edit: yeay ^^ im done, did it bstx3 smnx3, worked very well. 2 of the smners died 2 time eatch during the five runs. Bst pets where tank while smn avatar was doing the DD work. first fight took about 40 min but we worked our way down to killing it in about 30 min

Same **** different day, 7 Ohats needed only 3 gotten because people want to leave once their friends have them. Nobody cares about the others who are last or in the middle.
Even the person who started the run left. It will be a long time before i help anybody ever again. especially people who i know left, and could have stayed for 1 or 2 more fight. I bet if their friends were last in line they would have no problem staying. Wish there was a option in this game where if someone left early with out warning or suddenly after getting their item, people could vote to have it taken away or lost or put back in que or something

Its just selfish and rude to invite someone knowing you will leave before they get their ****. we had 2 tanks every thing went fine until 1 left. Then this NM became unbeatable or i should say most left after the first whipe and we had no was of killing it.

Maybe i can get this hat saturday, heard someone was going to do a run.

Just make me remember why i quit for a year. I could start doing what i see most people do around FFX and leave once i get my item, im just not that type of person. This is just a game but it really shows peoples character in real life.

I hear you. I had this same situation in Bahamut server when those people who started it just left after they got their hats. I spent 4 hours sitting down there helping them get it and then when our turns came up, their party magically disappeared. We managed to get a random BST solo'in down there to help but the party makeup was seriously lackin' now without some stunners and healers. We lost the next 2 clusters and disbanded...

A warning for anyone on Hades or any other server if he gets a transfer. Never party with Ness. Here is my story:

I shouted and gathered an alliance together. We were to do Optical Hats in the order in which the person was invited. I was to be first and Ness was in dead last. Long story short, we made it to Hakutaku spawn. We fought him for about 30min and I got disconnected. Ness had party leader now. I asked him several times for it back, but he never responded. After about an hour of fighting Hakutaku, we finally killed him. I lotted, but then Ness changed it to Leader Lot, stole my Optical Hat, warped, and logged off.

So if anyone sees Ness on Hades or any other server, if he happens to get a transfer, then don't party with him. Or you can party with him and Mpk him lol.

Hey everyone, I got my hat last night. We did a total of 13 runs with a total of 18 people to start.

My advise is try not to do a pick up run for this thing if possible. Organize a linkshell event and try to get as many friends as possible. We were able to fill about 14 spaces with LS memebers and the remaining 4 where after shouting for a small amount time time. Of course our biggest problem was people leaving. The 13 runs took a total of about 6 hours to do and we lost about 6-8 people by the end.

By the time we were halfway done 5 more friends logged on and they all volunteered to come down to help us. By the final fight we were down to 14 members though with only one stunner.

The fight itself:

Location: You will be in a room full of million eyes. with a hallway leading out that ends with a cliff. Most people fight in this hallway. Stuffing in an entire alliance is tough but its not bad. First clear out the eyes (Bsts are lifesavers, use um if you got um) Next when you are ready, pop Haku. Send a stunner with popper if you want to stun him when he first appears. Pull him back to hallway. Mages can be close to Haku in safety during the accual fight. Make sure all mages turn their backs to him so hexeye does not effect them. you should be deep enough in the hall so all adds will not bother you.

If you are prepared and know what you are doing he is a pushover with craploads of HP. He uses two moves that needs to be stunned, flare and firaga III.

Stunning: When we first went down we had 4 stunners but by the end we had one loan blu to do all the stunning. This one blu was able to take care of the stunning with head butt by himself. (when it didnt take effect melle would stun ws}. 2 effective stunners should keep you safe but i would bring 3 if you got it.

Tanking: This guy hits hard, but relativly slowly. We had a pretty effective tanking method. Our nin faced backwards and never accually fought the mob. All melee stood on the opposite side of tank. We had a sam/thf and a drk/thf constantly SATAing the backwards NIN. The nin simply spammed the elemental wheel. They were able to keep hate realitivly well. We had two war/nins who would back the nin up when he lost hate.

In this method when nin had hate and haku used Hexeye it would only hit the nin and every mage. Since all had their backs turned it didnt effect them.

Healing: We were lucky to have 3 whms come with us for this thing. We placed one in each party. During this fight (most likely on the first one) people's health drops very rapidly. A few times someone would be at full and then be dead two seconds later. If all goes well people wont take that much damage. The primary concern of our whm was healing, hasting and para. We had enough trust in each whm that we allowed each whm to only concentrate on their own party. People will get para many times during this fight and its essential that you watch the log carefully for who is paralized.

In the first fight every whm ran out of mp because it went so rough. However by the last fight I had a total of 900/1200 mp. MP isnt really an issue if all goes well.

DD: focus on melee WS to do the most of the damage, save your blms for the end. not much more to say.

anyways good luck all, i hope this helps someone

After having the cluster the best part of half a year i finally got this hat. I have been through hell and high water trying to find a LS/group to do this with so it is a great relief i was finally able to get it tonight.

Big lame shout out to Ladyhirundo, Janeash, Morrana, Strideruk and Erey for helping me farm up all the eyes, and again to Morrana for synthing it for me.

Second thanks to Nix along with her LS Yojimbo for whiping Haku's butt and allowing me to go on a run and making me feel welcome even though i'm not even part of the LS. So cheers guys, you really helped me out on this one, all of you. I am grateful for you placing your trust in me and helping a stranger in need, and to my friends i thank you for wasting your time on this shoddy piece of work called me.

So as you can see it takes a hell of alot of effort to get this item, but it's the people beside you who make it all worthwhile.
Gotta love people who stick with things
# Oct 15 2006 at 4:47 AM Rating: Decent
I must say that its great when u team up with people who will actually stick out for a loooooong run. 14 runs, everyone got theirs, over 10 hours on this. all fights went smooth, but naturally there were a few who left after getting their hats (some just fell asleep), but we still finished. this was well worth the wait and long run, since i worked for my cluster. thank you everyone involved that stuck with all of this, now get some sleep ^^

Optical Hat != Ugly

I LOVE how the Optical Hat looks. It's the only reason I continued to wear my super gimp Fungus Hat for so long (on both Melee and Mages). Unlike the Fungus Hat, however, the Optical Hat not only looks kick ***, but it has kick *** stats as well. There's been occassions where I didn't wear items in the past because of their looks, but this is by far not one of them. I don't know why some people here think it's ugly.
