Meh. Not to diminish the accomplishments here, but people care for about 5 seconds after someone posts their 'Blackbelt get' and then generally forget about the thread. Not really worth sticky space.

Could add it to the index if you really wanted to, I guess, since we do have the bar fight and subligar man linked there (or did; dunno if we still do).

I just meant, it would leave it permanently at the top, so people could post there. Instead of having random people posting it in the accomplishment thread, then having someone link them to this thread, over and over again in various situations.

I was told by nearly everyone that black belt was out of my reach... Well 2 months of persistence and getting up at odd times have finally paid off!

Bought from first 2 items from HNM shells, but the 3rd is the exciting story. On Saturday, a group of friends agreed to help me claim/kill Adamantoise, as it was guaranteed to be NQ. No drop, but we had ToD. A couple volunteered to come help the next day, but I told them not to bother as it would possibly be HQ pop.

Well, two amazing things happened. I log on at 6:45am on a Sunday morning... And lo & behold, two of the friends were already there! Bit by bit, more of my friends started gathering to help out. I really do have a great group of friends!

Second, about an hour and a half into the window, the usual HNM people start gathering. One of the shell leaders sent me a tell asking if we had enough people to kill the HQ spawn. I truthfully told him no. He then offered that if I gave his shell the ToD... He would give me the egg! Naturally, I gave it to him. NQ Adamantoise popped, they claimed... And the egg really did drop! True to their word, they invited me and gave me the egg.

And much punching followed. Smiley: grin

Wyrm Beard from ls ks99 (1/15 runs?) last month, over a year in time total
Behemoth Tongue from King Behemoth, also D.Ring dropped, last Saturday (camping Behemoth on/off since I was 67ish)
A. Egg last night, ls KS99, our first time ever & only egg drop of the night out of 7 runs
Black Belt quest active since Feb 2007, level 75 0ct 25 2006, MNK first & only since 2004
Turning in my Brown Belt actually made me tear up a little.

(D.Ring wasn't mine, went to an LS PLD who then left a month later...)

Thanks, I try. That little "\o/" was supposed to be a picture of me throwing my hands up in mock excitement over my guard skill :) I guess my humor is just weird.

I've been waiting so long to be able to post in this thread.

When i first started the game about 2yrs ago. I wanted to be a black belt monk.

Then when my LS evolved into a HNMLS about 5 months ago, i started to camp HNMs on a regular basis.
My first HNM was Nidhogg and I got the beard from him. Unfortunately, behemoth and adamantoise were less appealing and hardly ever camped by my LS.

So after a bunch of claims of the NQ gods i got fed up with waiting and just bought my tongue and egg from other HNM LSs. Having little money was not going to help my cause though. So i had to pass on a lot of tongues and eggs because other ppl just offered more money then i had (was whilling to spend.)

This morning I didn't have ToD on Adamantoise, so i got online at 9am. After about 5 hrs, the regular HNM LS came into the zone. After 7hrs camping, Aspidelocheone popped. I made a deal with the claiming LS and i got my last item.

4/18/2008 Black Belt obtained /joy.

beard: Nidhogg
tongue: Behemoth
egg: Aspidelocheone

In total, it cost me 1.35 mil gil and a SH+1. Add to that the countless of hours camping. I'm a happy galka now.

Having BB now is so cool. I'm getting tells from random ppl to congratulate me. Or ppl that i haven't spoken with in in months. Either because they check me (title) or because they heard it from someone else.

It's nice to see/hear that -even though I see more and more blackbelt monks nowadays- it's still considered to be a big accomplishment as a MNK to be wearing a black belt.

Saturday 05/10/08: Black Belt Obtained!

Over a year ago, I got a tongue from a shell I was helping with KS99s.
Sometime after that, a friend of mine heard Adamantoise was up and unclaimed. 1/1
Tonight, with the help of that same friend and a few old sky pops from long ago, the beard was mine!

Thank you TheUnity, Dreamers, and Octavious!
