Nice drop on assassin's armlets, good one there. Aside from the commentary which I won't get into however there is one thing that caught my eye in your screenshot that I'd like to adress, namely the request for Barfira. This is a common fallacy that barfira will reduce the damage taken from Mijin gakure, according to the wiki

Mijin Gakure

Quote:
* Mijin Gakure is a Ninja's Two Hour Ability.
* Inflicts instantaneous damage to a single enemy, similar in nature to Eagle Eye Shot. The damage dealt by this ability is non-elemental magic-based, and therefore cannot miss, but is subject to resistance instead. Damage is based on the user's current HP. In general, the higher the user's HP, the more damage that is dealt.

* Damage based on user's current HP, not total HP.
* Damage from Mijin Gakure is reduced by -Magic Damage Taken gear, Shell, and the Paladin Job Ability Fealty, but not by Magic Defense Bonus.
* Despite the explosion animation that Mijin Gakure creates, the damage is NOT fire-based. Increasing fire resistance is not shown to have any effect against this ability.



I bolded a few parts there. This has been tested extensively, and it has been concluded that Mijin gakure is NOT a fire based attack, it's non-elemental, thus barfira will have NO EFFECT on lessening its damage. You can save your mages an extra braincell or two by not having them worry about barfira on top of all their other tasks and duties, in addition to saving a few MP as well. They probably already have enough to pay attention to anyways, so lightening the load would always be welcome.

Seriously melph, wtf lol. Stop haxing!


Deadgeye my dear friend, you aint seen NUTHIN yet. If you thought that my synthing a cursed subligar -1 1/4 that run was hot (I had done 2 batches before it lifetime each of 3, so it was 1/10) I used the 9 million gil I made profit from the first one to buy 10 more angel skins and pocket some extra. I went 1/10 on a second cursed subligar -1, essentially getting a second cursed subligar -1 for myself FREE. So now not only did I profit from my first by a small bit, but my second is in my storage waiting for the N leg I may one day receive. But my story does NOT end there.

Two weeks ago I received an offer for full time employment at my RL work where I had been part time previous, and I begin Monday. I figured that this was a reason to celebrate. I have been working so hard over the past years to advance myself in both my RL as well as my game, so I decided to finally try a REAL (small) batch of the legendary HQ of bonecraft, the hecatomb cap. I bought 16 angel skins off the auction house in the past 3 days... yeah I know, it massacred the going rates... AGAIN, after the last 2 subligar HQ and the HQ gloves I made, But I didn't care. I figured it would fix itself... eventually >.<. I had to shout for an hour before I could get somebody to synth me the darksteel caps, because I couldn't make them myself, so I ended up offering 200k reward to have them synthed (on top of materials of course) when my day I wanted to synth on was near and finally got them made on Dark Day. The target day I wanted to synth on was full moon earth day, and I went afk for a sammitch. When I got back i did my synths, 16 angel skins, 16 caps, and a prayer to the heavens.

And stepped up from being a crazy thief into the realm of a goddess

I went 1/4. As @#%^ed up as it is I went FUC*ING ONE in FOUR. After that I no longer cared, I had what I wanted. I finished the rest. I don't care that I blew up the one at the end, I don't care that I made 14 normals that will sell for 300-400k loss each, and will take till this time next year to do so. I just don't care. The incredible feeling of satisfaction I have right now is something that I just can't put into words. Not only am I finally getting the real life advancement I've worked for during the past 3 and a half years at my job, But I have completed 9 out of 10 components of my high quality hecatomb set. Just one more paper and I will have done the impossible.

I am going to uncurse that cap when I wake up tomorrow. Right now I just want to look at it for a little and smile at how beautiful it is. For an image of my current status of my HQ dream you can see below.

So Awesome, so very very awesome.

And with that I'm going to bed, I need sleep. And with this victory, I'd say I've earned it.

After more months (maybe years) than I care to admit, finally 5/5 Homam. Feels so nice to know I don't have to wait for a drop there ever again. 3/5 bodies on Omega with this group... 3/3 since I started: /em hugs the Treasure Chest

Now to finish off the other few people in the group and move on to ZNM

Awww hehe, thanks for the compliments guys, I really appreciate it. It means a lot to me. The cursed cap -1 I made two days ago puts me at about 1/30 or 1/40 lifetime, so seeing as it IS so rare I went and uncursed it yesterday and macroed it in. It looks so cool aesthetically (and /check wise too >.>). Several people said they thought I should have sold it, but it was something I have wanted for a long time and since it IS such a rare and unseen item it was worth more to me than any sum of money. Since I play the game for the reasons I wanted I just went and uncursed it, and I'm glad I did. It looks so cool, and I can leave my bonnet in mog now for the first time in two years.

Srsly get that subligar abjuration so you can have full heca+1. Then you can get a skadi body to replace your +1 heca harness until you get your mandau. Then I can pretend I'm you and that I've completed what I've always wanted to do.

This. ._.

Dear God Mel, you're kicking virtual ass. It makes me wonder if I hadn't quit if I would have been able to accomplish half the stuff you have in the past few months. XD I was pretty close until you started churning out Heca+1 and upgrading Mandau.

With the announcement of the user dungeons up 'n coming, though, I think I'm going to resubscribe to XI. Sadly though, I don't think I'll be gearing up my THF again. :\ When I quit I sold everything I owned and bought gifts for my roomies (who use them very well, I might add). However, all in all, I think it wound up totalling ~25M gil. If I had to guess, then I would say about 15-20M was in THF gear. It's probably pretty obvious why I won't be aspiring to regearing it.

Ok it's more of a non-accomplishment really, but I'm still proud at how well me and my friend did.

Duoed Capricious Cassie to around 55% with a 68 rdm/nin. Waiting out Bad Breath is kinda painful but wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. :P We were just farming for Opo Opo Crown items when we ran across it.

I should stop by here more often. Holy @#%^ing hell Melphina, that's insane. First the DH+1s, and then those Heca pieces... wow.

Anywho, got myself some Homam Hands this week (would have got feet too, had they dropped ; ;), and last night, got Hope Torque. Wanted it for ninja of course, but it does mean that I finally have a decent neck piece for TA. Very happy indeed.

I came back to the game after a 4 year hiatus and had to start from scratch.

Sucked having to level up, level war & ninja to 37 for subs (along with doing that quest), camp NMs for essential rare/ex drops (hairpin & boots) do missions to rank 6, do zilart missions, get fame and all that all over. At least I did all of that AND got my thief to 75 in what i'll consider pretty good time >.>

Crazy Story, and first time I ever deem something that deserves to be on here. Ive always wanted the Peacock charm, for years ive wanted it. But neither wanted to spend the money to get it, nor camp the damn argus. Which I actually did like a year ago for like 2 days. So I was asking people on my friends list to see if I could bum one off for cheap and they basically told me that they had the Amulet. So I instantly think about how SE designed Argus, your not "supposed" to camp him, your supposed to run into him and get lucky basically. I figured you'll never win the lotto if you dont play, so I gave it a shot and after a long delay in waiting for a tele mea, I finally rush there, fleee and im in the area. I walk around the camp and see 2 anons just standing there, and between them is a Hecteye, didnt even bother to look at name because im used to seeing the protozoan. But then... rrealized hes like kind of large.... Argus.... zomg I beat the sh*t out of him with my Thiefs knife ( i know people say it doesnt increase r/ex drops, but I wasnt taking any chances). No wss and 1 min later hes at like 20% i close my eyes and pray to god it drops. After hearing its death, i slowly open my eyes and read..

You find hecteyes eye... ok
You find a vial of mercury... ok
You find a peacock amulet... OMG!!!

A few curse words of happiness later I'm eccstatic and im completely shocked to believe I got it. Ive had terrible luck with every other nm Ive ever camped, Ive had to work my ass off for every gd thing I own, its a nice change when something so awesome dropped so easily. Argus woot 1/1 :D /dance

Well isn't this a really nice way to wrap up a prosperous year.

Santa Claws must've thought I was a really good girl this year because yesterday I got a new pair of Homam Manopolas to wear over my kitty paws.

I enjoyed 2008 very much, I can't wait to see what 2009 has in store. *purrr*

Not much of an accomplishment, but got myself some Enkidu hands last night... really wasn't planning on lotting them, but was the last person that could even use them so I got them... Might get some use in my r.acc set and maybe stand alone DE for the ACC... not really sure what else I could use them for right now :(

0/8 on Oracle Pigaches though.. which 3 people wanted (including myself). Stupid fish...

Dusk+1 are a great improvement.
iirc Triple Attack+ has diminishing returns, so the 3%haste def out does it.
