Nice, sorra. I was just loading FFXIAH at the price history of that right when this thread loaded. Could really use one of those -_-

I just picked up my useless Dynamis Dagger. If I work myself like a dog, I'm still hoping to be at the next phase in less than two months.

Obtained: Asn.Armlets -1

Actually an interesting run. We basically got a low number of drops, but some good drops. 2x THF -1 hands, 2x DRK capes, and 1x RDM belt.


EDIT: unobtained: the ability to spell

I saved enough gil to buy myself a blau dolch. I had been saving for about 1 month. Not spending a dime and not doing anything but raising money.

There was ONE thing I did when I was @ about 1.8M though. I took a break and tried my hand at hunting Kreutzet. Day1 I stayed for about 6 hours (lifted, made dinner, cleaned up around the house), left for limbus, he popped about an hour later apparently.

Came back day two, camped for 2 hours, pulled, /l Help Help Help!, 4 LS mates show up 5 mins later we kill and BAM! Love.

So one day I'm rocking Magnet/NQ Miserichorde, two days later i'm Blau/Sirocco.

RAWR!

Is this one of those "Inventory -1" pieces or does it have its uses? Another question is about the Triple Attack +1. Is that plus one work like a merit point to Triple Attack or is it some other stat that im not seeing?

I'm a bit of a gear wierdo.

And sorry to repost another accomplishment so soon, but finally got light filament to drop last night so gogo Rogue's Armlets +1 (AGI+15% for TA)

Just dinged 45, and rank 5 a couple days apart. The best part was, my party for the rank 5 mission quit during the castle Oztroja part of the mission, and I was teleported out. After a couple days of waiting for them to go back, I decided to just Tonko my way through there and get the magicite myself. Not only did I get my magcite, but happened by the treasure chest on the way in, so backtracked to it, picked it and got an Electrum hairpin! Of course I got aggro afterwards, so I just hit my PD, instant warp macro and away I went. Turned into a nice, profitable little adventure.

Did a farming run in blaflau today. Got 2 perytons to spawn, both dropped freya's jerkin. One for me and one for a rng in my salvage set.

Now I just need to get the 15 piece, the 25 piece, and lots of gil <.<;

Oh god, nice. We've seen 1 peryton (no drop) in 6 ramparts. In fact, it's the only rampart NM we've seen in (I think) 13 ramparts. Still no drop from 4 (5?) Archaic Chariots either. We're starting to think Skadi will never drop for us.

Heh, we didn't even finish off the rampart, it only got down to 20~% HP.

I seem to be a drop god incarnate or something sometimes. I run on rechargeable batteries though, it's like a power meter. Every super awesome drop resets the meter and it needs time to charge up again.

Currently my greatest accomplishment is that after having returned to the game following a full year's break, I've farmed 1.9 million gil in under 2 weeks, and now have enough money to purchase a Blau Dolch.

On the downside, I still have a full 4,000,000 left to farm to recover the rest of my gear...

We saw 3 gate widows today! No drop, but it rekindled our faith that the NMs do indeed exist... Maybe one day we'll even see a drop from them.

And lost it mere hours later when I mis-pulled while camping Abyss Sahagin...

Just out of curiosity... what the **** did you FARM in under 2 weeks to get 1.9M gil? I mean, i don't really farm anymore as I have other sources of income, but ****... if I can make 2m in under 2 weeks farming, I might start. Were you farming 24/7? Or did you just mean farming in the sense of all of your gil-making measures (ie, bcnm, ksnm, enm, assault, etc...)?

I started in North Gustaburg, farming wasps and goblins. I used three mules in Jeuno to sell stacks of Wild Onions (7-8k), Honey (5k), and Beehive Chips (4k), dozens at a time. I sold Goblin Masks and Armors to a buddy who desynths them. He often purchased 25-40 of them at a time for 850 gil apiece.

A few days later a friend (Alchemy 63) offered to synth all my Beehive Chips into Lumps of Beeswax, and I agreed. I began farming 25 stacks of Beehive Chips a day, and then selling the beeswax for 13k a stack in Jeuno. I flooded the market, dominating it until others crashed the price. I farmed probably between 4-8 hours a day, depending on my homework.

About Monday of this past week I set up shop in Buburimu Peninsula, farming Bird Blood. I run a parser while farming, and the drop rates averaged to 120% when counting in my double-drops. I peaked around 40k/hr. there, selling 50-55 stacks a day to an NPC in Mhaura. I do this for about 6 hours a day, every day.

Tonight I found out I can make respectable gil farming the Abyss and Coral Sahagin NMs in SSG. A buddy and I farmed their spawn for hours tonight, and between gil drops, muggings, stolen beastcoins, and BRD/WHM scrolls, I pulled in approximately 200,000 gil in somewhere around four hours.

Since returning, I've managed to obtain a Blau Dolch, Dragon Harness, Chivalrous Chain, Dragon Leggings, and a few other small odds and ends. I expect to be farming incessantly for another two to three weeks before I can XP again.

Ah ok, so this wasn't a casual type of farming, you're talking the hardcore 4-8 hour sessions. I just don't have the drive to do that anymore. I spent months on end farming back in my hayday, and I really burned myself out on it. Be careful you don't do the same.

The way I figure it is that I don't have much of a choice. When I quit I gave up everything. Absolutely everything. I'm essentially starting the game over at level 75. Until I'm respectably geared, I can't cap XP, merit, or even consider looking for end-game shells to join. This sucks a bit, but as long as I can find entertaining ways to profit, such as the SSG camp, which was a tremendous amount of fun, I'll make it through.

I figure the payoff in the end will vastly outweigh the inconvenience now.

Got my Sirocco Kukri the other night! <3 Got ToD from an LS mate who'd killed him and got the drop in the morning. Grabbed some friends and went there 9 hours later. Just as his window was closing (and wind weather was up) he popped. Killed him and went 1/1- so glad I didn't have some crazy 15 hours+ camp like I've seen so many people complain about. :X

Funny thing about that vest. I was exploiting the myth also known as TH3 to help a friend get a coffer key from the Eldieme Necropolis. Well, I got bored with wearing Remparee Harness so I threw Assassin's Vest on. I had an epiphany. I realized that wearing Dragon Leggings, Dragon Subligar, and this thing while dual wielding makes any THF in Eldieme look like a Tomb Raider. Took some screeniees, thought it was pretty cool.

My Dragon Subligar just makes my mithra look like a hooker, especially when I opt out of wearing body armor.

I tasted hundred-fisting on THF.

Was doing ODS( bad drop regardless), and basically I managed to be the first one who raped the scorpions -_-;

Went to Colibri the other day, and I found myself cannot keep up with the tp gain. I ws, then some triple attack happens and back to 100TP in under 15-20 seconds some times. Wonder what happens if I ever get homam legs. ><
