This is a pre-accomplishment:
Finally perfected our Proto-Omega strategy (low man) and won in 15 minutes last night. head and hands dropped. I am first in line for body though, and then second for pants... then I am done with Homam! So I should have that in about a year with my luck :P

I take it **** is someone you're yet to encounter? Don't worry, he's just doing it to make others jealous (he got his Aegis when his pld was lvl 12, iirc).

Grats Shamaya :)

Hmmm, all of you guys have posted stuff since I did and I feel left out, but first off. GRATS Shamaya on mandau, kickass thief go!! Very well deserved accomplishment for you, my bonnet's off to you for that one. Also big grats to everybody elses accomplishments, theres too many it would take up too much space but pixie homam suppa levels merits and more lots of congratses to all.

Now I have an accomplishment to ring in, not huge by any means but I got my azoth.

Black Harpe looks badass!!!

It's more of a ballista toy than anything since it comes with four evasion and agility for even more evasion, in merit blau/sirocco is still better in terms of pure DoT so I'll be using that of course, but it looks cool and for solo or as i mentioned ballista it's nice to play with (not to mention the coolness factor that comes from chasing people down with the black curved blade of death O.O).

Congrats Melphina!!

As far as ***** he also got an Aegis and his pld was level 12, that just seems to be the way his LS rolls.

Not really a THF-specific accomplishment (as mine rarely are), but in the ensuing chaos of Mog Bonanza I managed to grab a pair of Dusk Trousers +1 for only 1M when the going price was 3M+. I'd call that quite a steal (THF-pun intended).

I also managed to finally nab some Wyrm Horns from the AH after countless weeks camping them. Here's hoping a 1% rate is kind to me. =P

Also, about 2 months ago before I went on my break I managed to make up all the money I ever invested into Bonecraft with a single lucky HQ. 1/2 on Cursed Gloves -1 and managed to sell them off that very night for a tasty 3M return. Next is to head down to get some more angel skins since the AH is being lame about it. <.<

So not completely THF only (used my sam on 2 of the fights) but used my thf to duo the bastok rank missions from 7-1 to 9-1 so am now alot closer to my cool flag ^^
also able to buy the rest of the AH gear I needed for haste, so without swift and rapp harness I am at 12% haste, which isn't "great", but finding it pretty cool.

Dragon Subligar/Enkidu's Subligar/War brais would probably be a better idea.

i'm talking for TA>DE... Rogue's Culotte +1 are better than war brais, and probably similar marginally to enkidu's.

On dancing edge dusk trousers are superior to dragon subligar. I would go as far as to say that with trick attack dancing edge dusk trousers will still be superior to artifact legs +1, but perhaps that would be a close one. The difference would probably be largely determined if a dexterity tier is lost due to 4 dex on WSC of dragon versus 2 dex WSC on artifact +1, in which case if you lose a tier thats 1 damage on each swing lost. Even then, I think it would be safer to err on the side of the attack gains given by the dusk trousers... see below how half the time they perform equally even in trick attack + dancing edge.

That 4 agility on artifact +1 only affects the first hit, whereas the dexterity of dragon subligar or artifact +1, or the attack of dusk carry through the weaponskill to every hit. The 4 dexterity of dragon subligar is 0.996 WSC, so only 4 times in every 1,000 will you NOT gain one damage every swing with dragon (basically almost always 6 damage across the weaponskill, plus extra hits too from triple and/per double also benefit.)

Artifact +1 legs: 4 agility == 4 damage once, and 50% chance that each swing gets 1 more damage
Dragon legs == basically guarenteed 1 damage on every swing, and 2 accuracy versus 1 accuracy, so 0.5% hitrate gain.

In this scenario actually the regular dragon subligar is STRONGER than the artifact +1 half the time without question, even in trick attack dancing edge, the other half it's somewhat close. However given that dusk trousers are superior to regular dragon subligar even withOUT sneak attack (and by a decent margin for the price) I would think it better to err on the side of the large gaines of attack. In addition, with the drop in price of behemoth hides due to the mog bonanzaa you are likely to pay LESS for the dusk trousers. 30 ancient beastcoins + sailcloth is gonna run you about identical to dusk trousers now, but you could always sell it back for a return on investment if you ever get N legs. If you already have dusk trousers, I'd say use these for sure.

Got Assassin's Armlets earlier today =D The first time they've ever dropped for my LS, also making me the only LS member with TH4 so far. Now we just need to find a new WHM 'cause I'll be asked to go THF to almost all events.

About a year ago (when i quit, plan on returning soon), Outtanking the 36 nin in our pty of nin, thf, thf, smn, whm, rdm (yes i made this party, don't laugh because we outkilled the conventional ptys with their DDs). Nin was closeish to 37, running low on shihei, so he tried to conserve, and it was only leveled as his sub. So when i saw him failing, i told the other thf to throw hate on me and it worked wonderfully. The first few fights after that the other thf and i shared tanking (to SATA we had the nin voke). After that, we became confident and were able to tank an entire fight without having to change hate to the other thf (he was galka, i was manthra). Me and the smn pulled and it worked out great, if we pulled two, the rdm would play sleep patrol. All in all it was a great night on crawlers, the nin got 37 and was able to drop the job, and we all got some good xp.

P.S. It was one of those late night ptys, you know, take what you can get and hope for the best. In this case it was amazing.

After meriting for about 4 hours last night and getting about 9 merits, I finally had enough to finish the last 2 upgrades of Triple Attack to cap it out at 5/5. :D Next up is doing the same with Feint! :D
