So...Last Sat I got Nlegs Abjuration and combined with the Cursed leggins-1 I finally made the week before ^_^

Hecatomb Leggings +1=mine!!!!!!! (and i didnt post before, but I made my own Hands-1 and got Abj a couple months ago /joyx2)

Happy happy Mithra!

(for the curious types, 1/16 on hands HQ, 1/20 on feet ; ; but its over now! /cheer)

Edit: Grats Melph ^_^. Im thinking im going to hold of on making legs till i actually get an Abj. Seems like it would make me crazy to stare at them collecting dust every day for who knows how long ; ;

Lol, I had intended to hold them indefinately but i had them in bazaar at 99,999,999 gil. In less than 3 days I had 5 people busting down my back door looking for it. I said It wasn't for sale but in ru lude gardens on saturday evening somebody offered me 8 million gil, to which I said no, not for 8 mil. they then immediately raised the price to 9 mil to which I said no. They said "please I need it" so I figured... well **** if this sucker is worth THAT much I may as well get something for it. Since I went 1/4 I knew if I sold it for an overinflated amount I'd make out like a bandit, so I listed it in bazaar for 15 million gil and went to sleep.


.... the next morning when I woke up I was 15 million gil richer. God **** O.O.

Following this up I bought 4 more angel skins after I woke up and I went 1/1 on a pair of cursed gloves -1 which also sold in 2 days on the auction house, I got 4 mil for those, but I made 3 nqs after the first so I hafta resell them. As @#%^ed up as it is in less than a week I banked 15 million gil profit after losses incurred of the nqs and etc. I'm ***** STOKED, and for this stories end I will quote something I posted in a different thread about hecatomb cap.
Quote:

The VALUE of an item is that which somebody is willing to pay for it. This is economics and supply and demand.


I realized I had something here, and I capitalized on it. Now I have approximately 30-35 million gil to put towards relic (I have so much stuff to sell on mules I'm not gonna count it). If I ever get my n abjuration legs then I will make another cursed subligar -1. With THAT kinda profit I made last week I'll be sure to have enough to make a second.

Happy kitty is really happy, and hopeful to see what the coming future holds in store.

just....

...

O.O

lol well you give me hope for when i finally finish my BC sign. (~155k/200 GP) I plan to start some heca for gil instead of for just for me at that point since i wont loose as many skins.

As a side note, I updated my "Goals" spreadsheet today (wiped off old stuff ive finished and added new ones). I have put down everything I want to do before I start a mandau fund, and its not nearly as far away as I thought. ^_^

I hate to have to be the one to break this to you, but there are some synthesis materials that are so volitile their loss rate is like 99% and you always lose em. These include siren's hair, elemental ore, Damascus ingot and among others Angel Skins.

Trust me, I know. In my years of goldsmithing I have busted hundreds of elemental ores, even with my goldsmithing sign within a month of it coming out. In over two years and hundreds of busted elemental ores I have kept exactly ONE, and ONLY ONE elemental ore. Every other one was a crititical failure, EVERY one. I have never retained an angel skin, never retained a siren's hair on a cursed crown failure, and I know that V claw is exactly the same although I haven't done those much. Smithers account that D ingot is the same in hauby, and I'd suspect Shining Cloth as well as others although I'm not a clother.

Simply put, the highest most expensive and rare materials are also programmed that if you blow them up you WILL lose them. There is nothing that can be done to help it, and the 200 point GP item won't affect it nearly as much as you'd hope. I think its a 1% increase in items retained. If anything it certainly isn't noticable at all.

Lol i know what you mean. I did actually manage to keep 1 skin on a break. I was floored xD. But an ingame buddy i know who synths tons of heca claimed that the signboard helped a great deal on breaks. I dont know if hes just been lucky, or you just unlucky in that department. If anything, it certainly cant hurt and im about 80% of the way there, so i figure why not. Ill wait another 40k GP before i start for a placebo at the least.

Still disappointing that it may not make my dreams come true, but the other reason is that I bought like 6 or 7 mannequins a while back. Now I cant sell them, and i sure as **** wont drop them. The signboard will help me overcome the massive light energy in my house and keep a few mannequins on the floor so i can get my true +3 BC full time and not have inv-7 ; ; The whole mog situation with furniture just ****** me off in general. First it was fishing mog issues, now its mannequins. I keep having to blow gil on my house because SE refuses to combine functional and aesthetic uses. -_-

I recently got my first piece of homam, the feet. It's a nice addition to my tp stuff. I'm hoping to get armlets in dynamis now that the relic fix has happened too, but I'll just have to see.

I got my Brutal Earring by farming on the days I had to work. Did Sky with ls on the other day. N feet gets! Should I save for the +1 or do you guys think NQ would be worthwhile? I also have WAR @ 75 if/since it's relevant.

I finally bought my Blau Dolch this afternoon after weeks of farming and saving. I know this isn't a huge accomplishment to some, but to me it feels great :)

I can't wait to try it out.

Whoo, lots of good stuff accomplished for my THF recently. I've obtained a Denali Jacket while helping out a Nyzul Static, obtained a Nbody abj from Kirin today and turned it into a Hecatomb Harness, and I am now 6/8 dagger.

Good stuff. :)

Love Torque! Only three more upgrades to go for my tp set:

Blau/Sirocco -> X's/Blau
Jaeger Ring -> Ulthalams||Toredors
Swift Belt -> Speed Belt

Don't expect any of those to happen soon. :/

the taou missions are really not that hard, just get a decent pt of people and you can do all the missions, if it wasn't for those blasted JP midnights.

The last boss can be kinda annoying, but I think he got nerfed a bit, not sure though XD

Anyway that's one upgrade you could make in the forseeable future XD

The rest of em .. . yeah gl with that lol

It's more of just me not having any time. Smiley: lol The little time I do have on the game is spent doing ls events. I have to put ffxi on low, low priority right now too since I totally just screwed up my last test in calc and physics. I need to ace the finals for both classes.

Oh, and I might as well add Cerberus Mantle -> Cerberus Mantle+1 onto that list. XD

All on the same day (not all thief related):

--Mandalic Stab
--Final Fight of ToAU missions. Picked a mage ring since everything from CoP and ZM that I picked was for DDs.
--First Lieutenant.

Went on a Bhaflau Remnants farm run hoping for my ***** Enlil's Brayettes to drop (this game knows not to drop things I actually want, still no homam body drop since like January for me -.-), but 4th rampart paid off- Freya's Jerkin dropped, and I got to lot in FFA to match my 15 and 25 pieces, lol.

Too bad I'm still 3 mil in the whole from my Marduk's Jubbah upgrade. -.- Need to find a way to make ~3 mil fast like to get out of debt and start saving for another body... x_x

It all evens out in the end I guess. I was going to put Skadi's body on my prio list at some point. Now I just skipped that step. :3
