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 ***. 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.

I stopped Dynamis before getting the AF hat... maybe one day I'll get back into it and collect the (mostly useless) set.

Grats on the white box though, I have only seen a few of them around :) (I see the AF2+1 hands a fair bit though...)

Ugh but those shoes so clash with the outfit, and your lucky the cute top is making up for that disgusting excuse for a head piece.

I'm just jealous.

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.
