I haven't done it yet but now i refuse to do ACP 11 as anything other than THF/RNG with a Culverin due to the majority of people saying THF on ACP 11 is pointless and my culverin with +77 racc gear(i could get more too if it was up for sale!!), marksmanship skill +5 and marksmanship merits disagree with those damn fools.

you freaking tell me i cant go THF/RNG yet you let a MNK in an Arakan Samue and Wag Bags that eats Sushi on a crystal that has high defense and low evasion join a zerg attempt?

Screw you I say. Screw you.

Don't need to stack Racc on the Seed Smiley: frown. I hit it as SAM/RNG with 200 skill eating sushi with ~30 racc and the rest Rattack gear. Only had a Hope Torque for skill and no merits too, the thing is about as evasive as well... a rock.

the one I tried with meat worked fine too, except I died from doing too much damage :x


And as an accomplishment... got 73 Thief last night, bought Dragon Harness, and got my Dagger combo to carry me through until I get blau/sirocco. Woot.

Well with a Culverin which gives -racc and Slug Shot which in an inaccurate WS to begin with I wanted to be safe but I couldn't find any Cannon shells so I went PLD. zerging that thing is hard(0-3 zerg, 1-1 PLD ranged set up)

Congrats on 73 THF

Well, climbed Nyzul floors 11-20 last night, and got Denali Gamashes.

Was very fun, would have gotten 2 boss runs in, but on our first run, we got 1 EAE floor with a bunch of skellies (huge floor, like 15 mobs), 1 activate at the same time lamp floor with 5 lamps, a ESEs floor with flayers, another EAE with white magic restricted, and we timed out with a cert lamp, with the last person that needed to touch it literally about 10 yalms away.

Also, we were fighting something in one of our runs I triple attacked something like 5 times in a row, didn't stop swinging for like 20 seconds.

This is not an accomplishment on my thief but I'd like to keep it on this forum since I first mentioned it a couple of weeks ago. It was about my shell's luck with homam body.

We have had the shell for a long time and the worst luck on everything. We finally got the linkshell working flawlessly on every boss. Ultima was killing us. Our homam body drop rate was piss poor.

So, we just did another omega run and now we are 3/5 on homam body since we started spaming boss runs about 1.5 months ago.

Remember about 8 months ago, I dinged 100 bonecraft, after making three gavial mask+1s while skilling up, including two in a row, and Deadgye - iirc - said all my crafting luck was used up? I think he was right. I've lost count of my HQ Heca Mitts attempts, but I just tier0'd a grass cloth!

I have a noteworthy accomplishment to ring in. This past Sunday I spent the majority of the day working on my ACP 11 fight after having done it only twice before, once wiith a linkshell group and once with a pickup shout group. After joining another random pickup with people that didn't know what they were doing I decided to take matters into my own hands and organize my own group with people I KNEW I could trust. I chose to go in and straight up zerg the damn crystal, and after buffs were handed out we went in and beat it down into oblivion.

Total record

0/1 linkshell group organized by another
0/2 random pickup shout group (not surprised with this at all)
1/1 victory with my own group of friends in the style I enjoy most, a no holds barred zerg.

Item chosen -- Mirke Wardecors (duh)

Augmentations chosen

Accuracy +10
Dual Wield + 3%

Homam Corazaa +1 style Mirke completed.

I also filmed the fight with fraps, and from the point of preparations to engaging and killing was about 4 minutes. This is perfect because it gave me an excuse to finally buy a certain music disk that I've been wanting for a long time, and it just arrived in the mail an hour ago. I have work soon so I'll have to finish editing and uploading it when I get home tonight, but when I do I'll host it on youtube for you guys to enjoy. It's looking pretty epic already.


Also I'm going to add that last week I finally got my swordbreaker, but my runic disk is only at level 25. I'm going to get that to 100 in the coming few weeks and open up Mandalic Stab. I'm curious to see what kind of potential it has on higher level targets in my builds with my x's/blau combo... especially now that I have Mirke Wardecors. If it has enough power it could open up new possibilities for me to use /nin at some (not all) events that I may consider /war at now. Melee DoT per strike on many high level targets is already insignificant no matter what you do, and x's/blau is very powerful and with pizza/meat should still hit for >>> 0 on most things (and I have many options to raise gear attack in melee to see to it this ends up being the case), but doing so sacrifices attack in ws and solo crits. Mandalic stab is a super berserk (and x's/blau needs no explanation) while still maintaining the utility of utsusemi and subtle blow. I wanna toy with it on a few things, starting with lesser lolsky nms to gauge its use for my own character. Even if that doesn't work out it will still prove useful on stuff like chariots in salvage and etc. We'll see how that goes.

Last night led a group of random Pick-up people in ACP11, Was my first attempt but I did lots of research on it. The group setup was Pld/war Rng/nin Rng/nin Whm/blm Rdm/drk, and lastly me as a Thf/nin. I didn't have rng subbed so I played the roll of keeping acid bolts on the crsytal, and taking any of the seed thralls that spawned. It was slow dmg, but steady and we trucked right on through it. 1/1 ACP11!!! Got my Mirke with 10acc and 3+DW. I'm in love with it. Finally got a TP chest, just happens to be the best one! /glee

Edit: Referring to the post or two above me. Am I the only person that uses AF Gloves to swap in for SA, Pants for TA, and Feet for my flee macro? I even have chest on my hide macro, and I put all except chest in my steal macro. I have 46 swap items for my thief macro's. Is this overboard? I always thought I was just playing right.

Semi-Thf accomplishment.

I have a 6man salvage group and im the resident Thf for. We have been doing Zha remnants lately (frog NM place) and last night we finally beat all 35 dropping frogs (5th/6th floor NMs) AND beat chariot for what is functinally a full clear of that zone for drops with a 6 man run. It was EPIC. People said we were wasting our time, it couldnt be done. But now we DID it! And hope to repeat this feat in the future as it will cut down the time we have to stay in this zone if we can farm+boss regularly by a TON.

So got my Ares feet 35 for drg (ares feet MINE this morning!) during an epic run of 5th/6th floor NM+ chariot WIN on Thf! Gogo Thf and Drg accomplishment! Happy Mithra!

On AF to keep/or not

Yes same boat on AF. I SA in heca, TA in war brais, but i do have my boots for flee.

Head: Keep around for steal +2.
Body: tossed ages ago
Hands: Upgraded to +1 for TA uberness
Legs: Tossed when i got Relic (5steal over AFs 1) and war brais+1 for TA.
Feet: keep for flee.

So basically i have head and feet still around for their uses and upgraded hands. Tossed everything else instead of re-questing and storing and always taking it in/out for Flee duration and steal gear.

So as you all know I occasionally have freaky messed up luck with my crafting. After skadi's cuirie hit me for 11 million gil in ingots it took me a month to recover, but I did. Now just tonight I was in Nashmau waiting for my Einherjar shell to gather together, and I decided that I'd have a go at my missing link once more. This time I had an audience, and the show was spectacular. This is quite possibly, my most favorite screenshot I have ever taken, because it was performed before 40+ people.

Undescribable Awesomeness

Nothing much more to say other than.... OMG!!!!!!

Also that screenshot references something I did about a week ago after selling my signed dragon harness +1 which helped me start up after getting skadi's. That would be This moment right here.

THAT dragon harness +1 was 1/7, so with my other 2 back to back hqs and my random first signed one I'm like 4/70 lifetime dragon harness +1 which is pretty radical. This dragon harness +1 wasn't signed so I listed it (it sold too). Used that for my first screenie you saw of the heca subligars.

I think Ive had a pretty good month. Skadi's Cuirie, a Dragon harness +1, two cursed subligar -1, and Mirke Wardecors all within 4 weeks. Not bad at all!!

My own adventures in Angel Skins.

gdi Melph stop stealing all my crafting luck ; ;

Though in all seriousness, I'm pretty close to calling quits right now. When I think about my luck with this particular synth (0/20+, lost exact count, including three crit fails), it gets me down; I might as well have just brought the -1 gloves from someone else. Yeah yeah, just a game, but making money takes times, and when that money is essentially wasted on synths that result in nothing, it's hard not to feel like I've wasted my time. Add in a LS seeing low attendance, bickering members, leaders who don't want to lead (or just aren't there) leaving it up to me to get events done, friends who aren't playing much at all... I don't think I even felt this low when I server hopped, lol.

/emo post done.

I was more excited about getting TH4 than I Was about Love Torque or even Alkaraups (Sold for 8M).

It may be placebo +1 but it means I might actually be allowed to come Thf to events now, and that's the best thing!

Been a long time since I did/got anything for THF, but last night we did SSR boss and I actually got both the Skadi Mask and the Ares's hands. Still 1/3 for both of those, but got my 15 Ares's body on the way up, putting me at 3/3 and wondering how to make another 10mil when I can barely log into the game for events as it is lol.

Um, getting ridiculous now? Of those 2 cursed subligaria -1 I made two Fridays ago I already sold one for 15 million gil, with more than one (or two) people interested in my second but from across other servers. Three days ago I went 0/3 on cursed leggings and 1/3 on cursed gloves -1 (already sold those hands >.>), sold the nqs and bought 6 more angel skins today. Again 0/3 on feet but also 0/3 on hands (none broke though *phew*). The feet have been annoying me because it's one item I never hq'd but I never tried much because I used to want to know it was tier 1 since the sub craft cap was never discovered.

Crafting legend, or crystal goddess? You decide.

Just made Captain rank.

I did all 50 Assaults as THF, so I think it belongs here.

Holy cow Melph, I wish I had your luck at HQing. Thats awesome.

As for myself, I landed the 25 body piece from SSR tonight, making me 2/3 towards completion for that piece.

Oh, and last week: Skadi's Jambeaux [Found it!]

Melph, what is your TOTAL heca look like? I have been tracking mine since my 1st heca attempt, and looking at my numbers, its a bit disheartening.

Between Legs/Hands/Feet (all T1) totals break down to:
139 Total T1 synths.
NQ=107 (81.68%)
Breaks=16 (12.21%)
HQ=9 (6.87%)

100+3+3+Furnishing BC, 60+1 leather.

More specific,
Hands: 53 synths. 6 Breaks. 5 HQs.
Feet: 59 synths. 7 Breaks. 3 HQs.
Legs: 19 synths. 3 Breaks. 1 HQ.

T0 Caps
11 synths. 11 NQs. No breaks.

T0 bodies...Cant find my data on them, but ive only made like 1-3 and there was a break. (I made 1 when i got my Abj. Broke it, got mad and just bought a NQ.) And probably done 1-2 since. NQs

More fun stories. I kept my 1st HQ legs/feet/hands ive ever made and am wearing all 3. To GET my 1st HQ in each....ugh bad memories.

Hands 1:15
Feet 1:20
legs 1:18
Cap 0/11 and counting. Game just CANT cut me a break if im making them for myself. Meanwhile other guys in my LS and that i know are talking about "1/4 on hands for mine!" "1/3 on both hands and feet!!" "1/6 legs!"

Are you really just that sickeningly lucky? Am I just that crafting challenged? Or have you really done like 500 hands/feet/legs and we just hear about your streaks?

I really have been getting these hq rates in the past few weeks. On Fenrir ffxiah.com you can still see the angel skins market well enough as a visual (for now). I sold my cursed gloves -1 and cursed leggings -1 already, and the quantity of purchases includes a few angel skin orbs I made. In the past week I've bought 18 angel skins and put 14 of them to hecatomb, so I'm 1/7 twice with several angel skin orbs to play with.

As a note: Whenever you see a character with a craft name prefix followed by the suffix "sage" that's one of my mules. I originally wanted to level all crafts in 2004, but I realized how much time that would take so I use them as Jeuno auction mules.

Whereas Melph is HQing seemingly almost everything she touches, I just lost another Angel Skin trying for my HQ gloves (still!). So I'm up to 5? crit fails I think. Lost count of how many attempts now, and no HQs.

I just dinged 100 bonecraft today, and will soon start my own attempts at making (at first at least,) HQ heca pieces for my own use. I hope I follow Melph's trend and not yours, haha. XD I've had ups and downs in my other main crafts, so I know how you feel.

I don't actually feel too bad tbh. After my last crit fail I said to myself "if I crit fail again, I'm calling quits on this synth, and I'll just save my money and buy it when I can". So that's what I'm gonna do. Yeah, I'm pretty bummed out, but hey, sh*t happens. I had some money to gamble with, nothing left to buy I need, so I figured "why not?", and I lost - some win big, as Melphina has, and some poor suckers keep the casino profitable.

If you need me, I'll be sat by the doors, with the brown paper bag and empty cup. Spare some change?

Did floors 26-40 in Nyzul Isle on 3 tags as thief. Not usually a big deal, but we absolutely destroyed 26-35. Beating both with 12 minutes, and 6 minutes left. Which I have never done when I went as drg.

Floors 36-40 though kicked our butt, with an ESEs with frogs, EAE that was huge, and a 5 lamp ordered lamps floor. We still managed to climb all the way to 39 though, and exited instead of proceeding to the boss floor.

Went fishing last night in Kuftal, and went 1/1 on Devil Manta with an Angel Skin...

Went to Einherjar with the LS last week and did a T3 chamber. We got, Single Bats, Imps, and Triple bats. Holy crap our mages did amazing managing those mobs while we killed them, and we got to the Cerberus Boss with about 3 minutes left. I died however trying to engage from some TP move that did 750 damage to him, I can't help but think we would have won had I been able to get close enough to land feint before dying. We timed out with Cerberus at 3% health.

All in all, a good week.

Edit: also, post 1000 in the thread!!
