I've been a 75 monk now for about 2 years. Up until about 6 months ago i was 0/3 on black belt items and thought i'd never get it. I was 2/5 on Usukane already. Then after an update I started camping the Turtle, and on day 4 I was getting ready to head out to VoS and then I figured I should search behemoth domain.
The search showed like 100+ people there. So I took off to there and what do I See? King Behemoth is up and being killed. So I quickly find a LS leader that is fighting him and ask if I can buy the tongue. I get a tell back saying 2 million?
I say sure. So after they killed him, I got my 1st Black belt item.
After a few more months of nothing and some canceled ks99 runs, and now 4/5 on my Usukane (needed just the body), 4 weeks ago my ls get 12 people together and we kill 2 ks99 Wyrms. We had x2 pld, x3whm, x3blm, rdm, sch, brd, rng (me), no beard. Then one of our blm had to leave and no one else wanted to risk their orb. So after 2 hour of searching friends, people started popping into the LS and we now had 18 people for the rest of the ks99. After about 4 more pops the beard finally drops.
Now my LS has a rule that the orb holder gets any 2 items he/she wants and rest is auto dropped. If a BB item drops and orb holder doesn't want it, then the Monks of the LS follow a lotting order.
The orb holder can also give or sell the BB item to some one and it counts as 1 of their 2 lots. So before hand I work out a deal with this member to buy his beard for 1 million if it dropped since it didn't drop on my orb. Well it work out good for both of us, as the only good drop he got was Dragon meat & the beard. So he got 1 million gil & now I was 2/3 on BB.
After about a week from doing ks99 I decided to get the Turtles ToD and get my Egg. After 3 weeks of watching others get the Egg, being out claimed, getting claim & no Egg, and no one selling the Egg when it did drop. I got up this morning and went out there to camp yet another day. I knew I wasn't getting claim as my LS was still sleeping. Upon the 1st window there is just me and 1 LS member that has help me camp a few times and another LS there with just 4 people. First window opens and what do I see? Aspi has popped and their pld got claim. They end of having some aggro, so I decide to help with the aggro. I ask their leader that is there if I can buy the Egg, she says maybe. After about 10 mins more of their LS shows up and they now have enough damage to take down the Turtle. After about 10 mins they have the Turtle down to 3%. So I ask the leader again if they will sell it to me. I get now response, the Turtle is Dead. I send another tell 4 million?, again nothing. I send one more tell of just ?
I then get a tell back saying, k. They invite me, I lot the Egg, pay the leader, Egg drops :)
I then go finish my Black Belt Quest and obtain my New Black Belt at 10:37am EST Nov 14/09
