How are people doing with their AFv3? I've not gone crazy for it but I do have all three base pieces and am working on trials. I did a lot in Abyssea and so I didn't have stones to spare. Even with the celerity and sojourn abyssites it seems that I go through a lot of stones.
Anyone completed a +2?
I completed my first 2 pieces of +1 (SCH & SMN legs) stricly from spamming quests. That took far too much time and far too many stones. I just finished my SCH and WHM head +1 pieces and I had a lot more fun doing it. I would just get 5 friends together (or wait for a shout in Whitegate) and go to town in Attohwa. Build up azure and pearl lights on some easy mobs like Murex and once time extensions start to drop, move on to farm your pop items. The cockatrice NM is pretty easy and tends to drop plenty of seals. Pretty much anything /NIN is a good tank for it. The repop on the ??? is pretty quick as well.
Of course, building up light strength isn't at all necessary but like you I am strapped for stones. Being able to farm seals without having to lose any actual time is very nice. I'm actually stocking up on stones again! If you have an extra hour to spare I recommend getting a few TE.
