Alucardrip you know me bro! lol too many exploits to list. Allthough I would say Tanking Boss mobs in Campaign battle solo with different types of DD's trying to take it off me is the most fun! ^^

Thanks :) First order is to make myself a SH+1, I put off buying one because I wanted to have a signed one instead; got the leather sub (and gloves!), just need to buy some V-claws now. After that, I'll be trying for heca hands-1. got four Diorite in two hours of farming tonight, and had some Despot gems saved up, so there will be much Byakko spammage soon, and N-hands are freelot right now (everyone who can equip them has them), so I'll be trying for +1. Hopefully I'll post some good news on that front soon :D

*Finally* capped Feint out at 5/5 merits, and after Tuesday's Omega, am now the owner of a Homam teapot hat (which puts me at 3/5 Homam, missing body and legs).

Omega needs to stop being stingy... I'm up on the next Corazza that drops, and of course we haven't seen one since January of this year...

I hear your pain Etain! I was basically in the same boat... finally after 10+ runs I got my Corazza (23% droprate my ***!) now I have to wait for 2 pairs of pants to drop... we have seen 1 so far in the last 5 runs :(

I also just capped Feint as well, trying to decide where to sink my last 3 points in group 2. I am thinking

AC = 1
Feint = 5
AS = 4
Amb = 0 (not a big fan considering I tank most of the time now :P)

Then it is time to work on DRG merits while my poor BRD gets more neglected lol.

Tanked Ungur and kept hate like a champ against a DRK/SAM through the fight.^^

Also, the other day, I was in Full Moon Fountain with my bf getting a CS for Windy Missions. I thought "Hmmm I just so happen to have this moon bauble. Should I go for it? ....@*!# it man why not.". I told the bf to prepare to raise me in like 30 seconds. He tossed me some protect, shell, phalanx and haste and I went on in. (He did not have bauble btw or this would have been a random ill-prepared RDM & THF duo attempt instead of just THF solo). As soon as I engaged, buffs got dispelled. Went about 2 solid minutes without taking a single point of damage. Shadows went down while slamming WS macros, and I got nailed with a crit for 777, followed by an Eclipse bite for 536 and bam I was eating dirt. Still, I was thrilled to have done better than I expected considering I had no food or meds or a plan and buffs got eaten right away. Plus made for some good laughs :P. Bf had been afk from before I said "Oh no my buffs got dispelled" til after I bit it. So he came back and was like "Wow I didn't know HP could be dispelled like that >.>" ...Smart@ss.

2/2? Nice. Now we need to get one of those back to Phoenix. Your signed NQ doesn't cut the mustard anymore.

On topic: I am finally starting to work towards a Mandau. So far I've accumulated ~10 mil, which is about 1/8th of the total cost. It will be a long road, but I'll reach the destination eventually.

If I didn't know any better I'd have to say Deadgeye finally got his level 25 drop for skadi's cuirie after not seeing it drop for over 16 chariot kills. Now he's about to upgrade his armor but needs to buy more ingots O.O. Hehe, heres to hoping, that'd be so awesome.

And on another note, obligatory congratses to 100 bonecraft mithra, may it serve you well. Oh ya, 2/2 scorpion harness +1 is also grats worthy, so many congratses across the board.

Thank you ^^ When I started the game I had three aims: thief 75, bonecraft 100, and fishing 100. Fishing I've really forgot about because I found it a drag eventually, but having the other two completed within a few months of each other... I'm happy :)

Ya, that's pretty awesome. I remember when I started I didn't have any goals, but a linkshell member in my first shell told me about goldsmithing and how IMPOSSIBLE it was and to finish and that if you could do so it was one of the best achievements to be had. I set that as my goal that day, to be 100 goldsmith. I regretted that many days thereafter (more than just many), because the hardships and time invested + money burned/lost/obliterated was depressing on a lot of days. But I enjoyed crafting and it was fun. 3 and a half years it took, but on the day i hit 100 the feeling of relief and joy was unparalleled so I can certainly relate to how you feel. It's one of the most wonderful feelings in game to finish a goal, especially after the time and work to get there is so huge but finally shows a reward.

I set my thief as a goal too along the road, and I'm proud of her accomplishments so far. Alongsode goldsmith I set bonecraft as a goal, which i finished. My two biggest goals now are also the most difficult. I want to complete my high quality hecatomb set, a goal I set back in 2006 when i first dinged 75 and didn't even know what the dragon's aery WAS let alone how kings worked, and Mandau, which if I ever finish those 2 will probably see me not knowing how to react.

Every day, a little bit more, slowly progressing. It's a fun journey, and I'm having a good time at it. Good luck with heca hands, lets hope you don't have a repeat of my experience. My heca mitts +1 took three times as many tries as my two dragon harnesses +1, and to this day i still can't figure out how.

It is ^^ it's replaced campaign as my thing to do when I don't want to party or farm (yeah, I'm one of those crazy people who enjoys farming). I still need to finish some subs off, and have a mule sat at leathercraft 71+2... I should finish that off soon, just for self-signed gear.

I'm guessing you're hoping to craft one yourself, but if you're after a cursed harness-1, Redshift who posts on the warrior forums has been trying to sell two for six months now, and I remember he posted once - either here or on BG - that he was open to cross-server trades. That was a while ago though, and both you and he have moved server since, but thought I'd mention it in case you're interested. Either way, good luck with getting one ^^ On which note, any idea if cursed leggings are tier1 or tier0? I've been unable to find info on their leathercraft sub level, and don't really want to try synthing them until I can find out.

Wow... that's pretty crazy. Not sure how I'd describe that - good luck on the DH+1s, or crappy on the heca-1. Right now, my amazing luck is continuing - 1/1 on Lamia Kaman+1!. I have to thank Wolfheart for this, as he made me look how much they sold for on Vaelfor - on Phoenix they were an awful synth, but seems they aren't on my new server. A -1 was on the Ah and I decided to take a gamble. Glad I did!

Too late, I've had that for over a year now. I got my hecatomb harness +1 back in 2007, right after my heca feet +1. I used a NQ gloves for over a year and had a second N hands long ago. I upgraded that one when I made my own hq. As I stand I have 3/5 HQ hecatomb, the harness, gloves, and feet (IE: Sky set). I have my neptunal abjuration: Head in mog but I'm reluctant to even TRY and make that because on Fenrir the angel skins are 530k a pop and show no signs of dropping. There are two other thieves out for their own heca +1, one got a N leg off of Odin and another wants the cap -1 from a fafnir kill. So until the locals either get what they want or stop trying I put my own heca attempts off for an undeterminable amount of time. I'm not jumping into the fray as well.

AAAANYWAYS that said I DO have my N head abjuration, and the legs which I could not get off of Nidhogg I hope Odin will one day provide me with. So I remain hopeful, but as i said, I'm taking it one day at a time. Slowly so as to not ***** myself over with a billion cursed items that I can't sell and may not even get the hq i desire (and in the case fo legs, can't even uncurse).

Oh nice! I assumed that because it's a tier0 synth it'd be the hardest to get hold of; glad I was wrong.

It's similar here with cap and subligar. An NQ of either piece is between 150k and 200k less, assuming you can even sell the cursed item. Given your situation with other thfs wanting HQs, I don't blame you at all for waiting - if nothing else, I guess you could always put your money towards Mandau while waiting for the market to become more favourable for synthing heca. Good luck with them when you decide to go for them :)

Got the drop from Bugbear Strongman who just happened to be up while on my way to do the solo ENM60 which I won. Did promy-vahzl with my LS with no deaths and dinged 75 from the XP from the BCNM at the end. 1/1 Magnolia Lumber on my way out of Beaucitab. Killed Lumbering Lambert who also just happened to be up when I went to camp him and got a full drop; some 5 skins, 2 horns and the Lumbering Horn which let me get my Purple belt which let me get my Brown belt. TH3 was definitely on today, it seems.

I believe them to be a tier 1 synth - the rate at which my competition pumped them out (and the price they asked for them) suggested to me that they fall into that catagory moreso than a tier 0. That, and no Hecatomb gear is limited by it's subcraft level. Ex: Cursed Gloves are Leather:41, as is Cursed Harness (which is the hardest one), and the Subligar (and then you have the hat which is just straight BC :P).

If I had to guess, then I would say the Leggings are also 41 LC.

That would have been my guess too, for the same reasons you list Chanchan. Looks like it'll be a while before I try synthing any though, a crazy number of cursed boots and gloves went on sale overnight - the market is stupidly flooded right now. I'll find another, less-crowded synth to gamble on for a while instead I think.
