Epic day! Fynlar and I decided to duo some XP for his WHM, which was @28k to 73. So we headed to Caedarva Mire and got to work on some imps. Twelve hours and entire Anniversary Rings later, he's now 75 and I've earned myself nine merits.

Triple Attack: 4/5, with two in the bank and midway to my third! Flipping sick. I scored like 9k IS today during all of that.

Edit: Congratulations, Fynlar! You rule.

I get that a lot. XD

Grats Etain on Jacket! I kinda want one too, but I'm not the least bit interested in Nyzul Isle, hehe.

Grats on Gloves, Nyn (I think?). I mean...I guess they're...pretty good or something? Look hot for R.Att setup and COR, I suppose. At least they're a cheap upgrade, heh.

You don't do salvage I assume? I have never stepped foot in salvage and I don't even have the liscence but I most definately know of these O.O. Heres a link to wiki

Freya's Gloves

I would emphasise this

Other Uses

Salvage Upgrade: Skadi's Bazubands


It's the rarest and hardest to obtain part to get the skadi hands. ya, Nynjaa did good. Grats indeed.

Skadi's Bazubands

They're not the best for thief perhaps but still useful, but for corsair and ranger oh what a hand piece. Sidewinder would love these.

Skadi hands would be awesome if Seiryu didn't exist. Seiryu's Kote and w.hands make Skadi hands a sidegrade at best (and an expensive one, at that). As for THF... yeah, they are just useless (homam, dusk, AF+1, n.hands all destroy them).

I guess the skadi gloves are okay.. I'm pretty much passing on them until they're rot since I think they're semi-useless for thf. I figure if I end up with them I might use them in a non-TA / non-SA dancing edge set (don't and won't have heca), but other than that, yeah, mostly good so you can store the set I guess, haha.

I'm pretty sure that Skadi's Bazubands are the best non-slow option we have for solo Sneak Attacks if you're one who worries about things like that.

Speaking of Skadi gear, I traded in all my ingots on Saturday and picked Skadi's Visor on Sunday. Went to Limbus and got enough coins to finally pick up my Loquacious Earring (yay recast timers!). Went to Salvage already in a good mood, and we got three drops from Arrapago: Macha's Crown, Deimos's Cuirass, and, finally, my pair of Freya's Ledelsens.

I've missed lotting these no less than 10 times over the past months because they'd only drop if I wasn't around. Made the perfect cap to a fun day of Thievery. Only problem is that now I really need to go merit because I'm down to 2102 Imperial Standing.

I've actually been doing Salvage for about 6 months now. ^^; Getting the 35's, triple boxing no least, is a pretty amazing feat in and of itself. I was just commenting on the use of the upgraded piece, heh. RVW basically spelled out what I meant by it. Believe me, I know how stingy 35's are. :( Had to do a lot of Arrapago NM runs with zero loot. So annoying.

Regardless, grats all around for accomplishments.

How exactly did you 3box it, doesn't salvage require 6 people minimum?

Two Words -- Neptunal Abjuration: Head!!

Aww hehe, you guys know me too well *blush*. But ya, thats the intent. Although the phrase going for "another" cursed cap -1 isn't really appropriate because i have no heca cap now to begin with, this is my first and will be my only ever abjuration. So I may be holding it for a while. I really don't care though, because I've been waiting for 2 years just to get the abjuration, I can wait a little longer if need be to hq it. Now that I have that I can work on that at my leisure =^..^=. {All Right!}

Yes, it is. It caps at level 97 bonecraft but has no subcraft, still thats 1 in 100 average rates.

It's a royal pain in the @$$ because the ingredients are

--Earth Crystal--

1x Angel Skin
1x Darksteel cap


The angel skin costs like 500-550k (but ALL 5 hecatomb pieces use one of these, it's basically 100% loss so if you break the synth you will lose the angel skin. I DO* say basically because its not perfect 100% loss but its so high it may as well be. I have only ever saved one angel skin in any high level crafting material in all my time, like elemental ores it's an extremely volatile material.

The other is that Darksteel Caps are never on auction, so I have to be able to either make them myself (high level smithing), or find a smither to supply me with them.

The only redeeming grace of these is they have some resell value. Unlike subligar which abjy is so much rarer the N head at least sells on auction house, so over time you can get some money back. I'm hoping for some good luck, but either way I'll wait.


I'm not particularly worried about it. I've already mentioned I leveled 2 crafts to 100 in the past, so between goldsmithing and bonecraft i make a living. I currently have some other synths i'm aiming to try and hq (READ: Stored up a buncha wyrm horns to shoot for signed dragon harness +1), but all in all I'll probably just wait several months and try to one shot it by just doing a lot of synthes at once till it hqs. I'll post when i get it so you can see a timeline hehe. Lets hope for some luck.

Blue numbers in the Triple Attack department!

Just got a KILLER deal. I've had Dusk Trousers for about a month now; I paid 500k for them. Since the Bonanza is likely to tank the price of Dusk gear, I figured this would be a good time to sell them and get a Bravo's Subligar, since I now have a Haste build.

As it were, Dusk Trousers have gone from 500k to 650k since I bought them, while Dusk Ledelsens have dropped from 600-550k. I figured if I could find a buyer tonight, I'd sell the Trousers and buy both the Ledelsens and the Subligar, and sure enough, I did! I even got the Ledelsens for 30k lower than the prior sale.

All I really lost was 14 attack which the extra hits will surely account for over time. Should I find reason to get Dusk Trousers again, I'll simply repurchase them following the Bonanza. A winner is me! (And as an added bonus, my entire TP set is a **** black/royal purple ensemble!)

Edit: Story.

Well you did get the Dragon Cap +1 :3

Personally I'm trying to sell mine. Constant floor 100 farming tomorrow and Denali Bonnet will assuredly be mine. Too bad nobody wants to buy the thing :( GL with the heca; some get lucky.
