Had 2 items from being in an HNM for awhile before I quit for a year.
So earlier last week, I started camping morbolger. (I had hit him after maintenance a few times years ago, but never got claim). Camped him, left my character on all night. 18 hours with no pop, and finally had something to go do.
came back 3 hours later, he was up, unclaimed. yay, 4 years later finally finish brown belt quest.
An egg away from black belt now, I just started hitting VoS each night. 3rd night, people were prepping for HQ pop. Had to log before it popped. 2nd night, had to log before it popped. Friday night, farmed as late as I could keep my eyes open, no pop, went to sleep, woke up 5 hours later he was up unclaimed. (nq). Found one friend online. He came bard, links killed us. He went and switched to smn, still nobody around but a drk looking for ToD. Going fine, 15%, smn d/c's, links kill me. 3rd time around, by now a couple others log in, head out, drk was getting sick of us dying, so has a party on the way to kill, offers help.
Kill, egg, holy sh*t black belt...
b.kotes, brown belt, black belt in an 8-day span, with nothing but a tiny social LS, a close group of friends, and a **** of a lot of luck.
Now to low-man byakko.
