Verethragna trials. Follow

At the moment I'm sitting with a Matis done with VNM trials (can now pick coin or chloris path).

I know Chloris will be an awefully long trial but i really want Verthragna, and so I've come to ask if anyone got any advice on strategies/KI farming/anything i need or should know.

So far I've only gotten 2 buds from an LS Lacovie run, and it seems this NM drops nothing else of interest, is this really something I'll need a static for to ever complete?

Sadly yes you will need a static, preferably one that is farming other mobs in zone at the same time and just track who has which pop items.

Best way is to get 5 people to help, go in and farm KI till you can pop it 6x time then kill it 6x in a row.

With a THF with TH6+ you will get 2 buds abou 75% of the time. So youll average 9-12 per 6 kills. Which isnt terrible if you know how to farm gold boxes. Your looking at maybe 2 hrs to farm them, then ~30 minutes for the 6 kills.

A static is in no way shape or for required, but you'll complete your trial much faster if you have one. Though, if it's not an option, it's pretty simple to dual box the entire Chloris trial, it'll just take longer. Obviously some jobs will be preferred over others.


Edit: yes, all 4 KIs can drop in chest

I just ment it was required if you wanted to finish it sooner rather then later. Yeah a monk can dou kill chloris no problem, but with 6 people with pop sets you get there a lot faster, and since you need to get to the lvl 85 version to even get the ws, youll be doing the same thing again for the next tier.

Well, Chloris took me 2 and a half weeks. No doubt at all you could finish in 2-3 days w/ a group. However, take that 2-3 days and let's say you have a 5 man group.

10-15 days. Once you hit a 6 man group, you're looking at roughlythe same amount of time of work put in in the grand scale, not just for your specific.

As for the lv 85 version, Ulhuadshi is a joke. I finished that trial in 3 days. (many ppl who want af3 can usually fill a group in a singe shout)

I've reached Shoggoth stage on my trials and hit a brick wall. I think I'll have to stick with Taipan Fangs +2 for a good long while. I really need to get a ls or some friends on this game -.- almost 7 years and I still have an empty FL lol. I feel I'm lagging behind other MNK since I have no crit WS in Abyssea.

It wins over Asuran if you have RR+Apoc atma. If you don't have a nice extra chunk of double/triple attack, it's mostly a wash, or possibly Asuran a bit ahead.

I got a pair of savate fists with 20% dmg mod to backhand blow that makes it quite nice.

I have heard about a way to reset weakness when KI farming by confluxing and having the monster lose aggro. How does one go about doing this as my only attempt last night led to the monster depoping before I was able to reclaim after confluxing back.

I'm sorry if this has been asked, in advance.

I'm going to try to do the Chloris path, the problem is I don't have a pocket WHM. The closest thing I got is a pocket RDM, and my girlfriend is a SAM (which doesn't really help much XD). Anyway I have MNK90 and DNC90, which one would be better for me to tank with and actually could we even kill him at all with the 3 of us? Any input will be appreciated. ^^

Can kill with RDM + MNK no problem, just bring tons of Holy Waters and pray doom does not kill you. Counterstance + Gnarled Horn atma (I don't have the other counter atma so have not tried that yet) + RR/VV is ok.

Use /war, I've not tried /dnc on it but that would work too I think, /nin is useless.

RDM should just focus on cures and doom (/whm got cursna). It's not a hard NM at all, just the KIs are a pain to get.

Good luck on trial =)

Buuump but not really, still on front page but whatever. Really actively started farming fangs about a week ago, 50/50 on those as of yesterday. Now only that pink f***king mandy stands in my way, but will hopefully finish those in about a week or so. Cleave farming really is not the way to go for this, unless you are trying to get Glavoid sets in the process. It is too hit or miss for my tastes. Really hoping to finish in the next week or so so i can stand amongst the mnk gods!

I have a small static consisting of:
Myself - Monk or Ninja (have gimp dnc and thf)
Friend1 - dual box WHM/SCH and BLM/BRD
Friend2 - Thief or Warrior (also has gimped whm and blm)

We haven't decided how to go about tackling the Chloris trial yet for my Empyrean weapon. I've heard and read that gold chest farming is the way to go, but I've also read that NM farming is the way to go. With my small static group, I was thinking that we could possibly fell cleave farm gold chests with Friend2 on warrior and myself on monk. Or, we could also farm pop items on NMs with Friend2 on warrior and myself on ninja.
Thoughts?

Also, what atmas do warriors use to fell cleave with? Since we don't have a RDM for phalanx, how do we deal with the damage from multiple mobs?

Pretty much what i'm doing except the dual box is a Thf or war with whm main, and the 3rd is a blm or whm. Farming Carabosse for their weapons and the pink ******* for mine. Carabosse is being a pain for us because of the time it takes to kill it. Its slightly embarrasing too when a 6man group is waiting with a kanagi nin and vere mnk who literaly burn it down in ~2minutes, but i still like doing it with 2 friends rather then having to worry about 6man ls problems, fall outs etc.

I'm also thinking gold light farm for Chloris items, with a combintation of NM's aswell. Hopefully SE is going to make the conditions for emph werapons easier, and TC really needs looking into for Glavoid too. I also hope they reduce the lvl90 weapons requiremnt of 75 items down to 50. Carabosse in La Theine just needs a 2nd location to pop nearby, change name slightly and colour but keep everythingelse the same.

For what it's worth, here's my experience in this matter-

We farm for empyreans as an LS and thought gold-box farming would be the way to go. I mean with 15+ people killing, gold chests are bound to drop everywhere and we'd get pop sets enmasse, right? I wish. After about 5 hours of farming we typically end up with 2-3 full pops for Chloris. Of course your experience may vary, but this is what I've seen after about 6 runs like this. There's simply too big of an item pool for large gold boxes to rely on them for specific KIs (Hecteye Eyelid seems to be the bottleneck for us, but that could very well just be our luck). Now with that said, we also end up with about 5 Lacovie and 2-3 Glavoid pops which we also use.

So if you're going strictly for Chloris, my opinion is to stick to NMs. If you need pops for multiple NMs, go ahead and gold box farm.

For Chloris only I'd say do NM's, it's way faster and more reliable when you got a war/nin combo for procs too.

Bat - easy and cheap pop
Scorpion - also easy to pop
Turtle - spwned time, easy
Hectye - only time sink really, needs 2 items from NMs (+1 from hecteyes) which are also expensive (at my server at least)

If you have a full LS, its best to have 1 monk + whm farming gold chests and the rest doing NM. Then just have people come get the KI.

IF your limited on players, its faster to just kill the same nm 6x in a row then move on to the next.

Yea, I guess the ideal way (assuming you had a large enough group) would be a mix of both. Have the majority of your group farm gold and pick up as many KI (and TE) as possible, while having a small "strike team" take out NMs + red proc to finish sets as necessary. I may try to push my LS in this direction when servers come back online.

Also just out of sheer curiosity, have those of you doing the gold box route noticed some KIs being more common than others? My group is constantly swimming in Torn Bat Wings and Gory Scorp Claw, while Hecteye Eyelids seem to be exceedingly uncommon. Mossy Adaman Shell falling somewhere in-between.

Yeah, I know the ideal way would be to farm gold chests with a full alliance with a ninja, warrior, and whm killing Chloris over and over. However, with my small little static of 3 people, with one being able to 2-box, I guess I'll be farming the pop items from the NMs 4x each at a time. The only issue then is we won't be able to farm any time but that's nothing but a quick warp and run back with more stones.
Thanks for the input guys. I truly truly hate Walk of Echoes. I did almost 20 runs in WoE and several fail runs and out of all of it I only got 3 coins. 2 of which I got only because I was the only one that wanted advancement, and the 3rd because the guy who I rolled against passed since he had got a pouch during that run and was being nice.
So I've just been satisfied with my Fire Taipans +2 (don't even have Ascetic's Fury) and now that I have a small little static willing to help me do Chloris, I'm stoked.

Dargua KI seems faster from chests, unless you are only in the zone for one pop I guess in which case farming the pop dragon NM is better. The other day by the time some dude was soloing it (took him like 15 minutes) we would get 4 pop off chests, plus it's kinda camped at times etc.

I'm in the process of farming up pop sets for the NM's that drop KIs for Chloris. Luckily, I have THF so I've prefarmed about 19 sets of pops. I take those pop sets and do a little delivery box magic between mules to hold them all until people are ready to suit up and run in to help me. Before you have a full set (seven items) you need to convert four items from lower tier NMs. The mandragora NM, and Limule NM can both be soloed by a THF/NIN with your eyes closed and 9 times out of ten no healing required. The Clionid NM can be soloed with healing temp items and by using a fools drink at 30% of it's life (to withstand Chainspell). I have soloed Cannered Noz about eight times but gave up on doing so as I'd have to use most of my temp items to stay alive. It's just easier to go in with a group when you're ready to convert pop items to KIs and rock him out. I thought camping Chukwa would be a nightmare for the remaining KI but I've caught a few lucky breaks having the camp to ourselves when we've gone in as a group. Now if Chloris would stop crapping all over my hard work and give me TWO items per pop. :<.

Edit: I should add that farming a full set of pop items takes roughly 40 minutes to an hour depending on focus and luck with drops off normal mobs. Also, I just buy Bloody Fangs and Alkaline Humus to save time as they're a common drop and 500-1000 gil on Ragnarok.

(I know the thread is a few days old and the OP has finished now, but figured I would share my experience so far)

My experience so far is that purely gold farming is not particularly efficient. If you have lots of people it can be effective, but in an hour we saw very few KIs, and then you have a chance of them being dupes, or Glavoid/Lacovie KIs.

Ideally, I'd recommend teaming up with someone who's working on Glavoid. That way, less KIs are wasted, and you have an extra person to help (along with any help they can get). Sure, it means you have to fight Glavoid lots too, but extra people makes it a lot better.

My tactic has been to max out pearl and azure, and then spend a while farming time with AoE burning (Cataclysm/Fell Cleave/Aeolian Edge). Do this until you have enough time to last you for a while, so that you don't have to stop and worry about farming time later on.

Once you have a decent amount of time, you can max out Amber light. The mobs that give amber lights in Tahrongi (Aspids, Sandworms, Wyrms) kinda suck, so it's hardly worth taking time to farm these. It's best to just go ahead and kill the NMs you need for chloris pops, and get amber light on them. You can also kill T1 VNMs for lights, and any Ephemeral mobs you come across (though they're relatively rare in Tahrongi).

But basically, gold farming comes secondary to just farming the NMs. Just go around each NM you need, farm the pop items, kill the NMs, and max out amber lights as you go. We've been getting a good amount of KIs from gold chests like this, while still killing the NMs and getting the ones we need from that.


That said, this is much better with a few people. We've been doing this with about 4-6 people, plus some dual boxed characters, which covers specific job needs and holds extra pop sets. You want someone for red procs (WAR or NIN - fun fact, Ninja can hit just as many red procs as Warrior. Bring both if you can to cover the full set.), and a Thief for farming pop items and Chloris itself if you can. Beyond that, then just the obvious DDs and healers, or just anyone who's willing to hold pop items. Invite people along to leech exp, drops, titles, whatever, in return for holding pop sets. It makes things easier.

Couldn't agree more Solarus.

Yestarday my LS farmed Gold boxes first until we all had around 300 mins of time. At that point we had used around 2 hours in there, and gotten 4 glavoid sets, 1 chloris, and 3/4 x3 on chloris all needing bat wing KI.

After that we just finished pop sets with NMs and got some gear too. This way people with few stones wont be hurt too ^^

Yeah, my experience for VS has been roughly the same, inside abyssea anyway. Haven't really tested it outside yet, but that's definitely consistent with my results. Only parse I've done had my average around 3700 (n=~50) during an exp session. Highest so far was 7k on a detector in Ule, haven't done a ton of NM's yet but the 3-4k range sounds pretty reasonable.

What are you doing between Chukwas that make that 90 minutes 100% dedicated to Chukwa?

In 90 mins of Chukwas, while you're waiting on repops, you can be getting a bunch of other things done.

Aside from that, he's running with 6 people, you don't need all 6 at Chukwa (or any 1 NM).

Split up and do multiple things at once.

Then, you're way overestimating time per NM.

Limule, clinoid, scorp, etc take nowhere near 5 mins, even dual boxing w/ my very undergeared war, yet alone w/ 6 ppl (since you have them all together and not splitting up for w/e reason).

Only NM on that list that I'd say would take 5+ mins is the skull due to it RR'ing. MAYBE Chukwa.

Also, he said 6 pop sets, not 6 pop sets and kills, so I don't know why you added killing Chloris to that (and even then, Chloris doesn't take 5 mins either. maybe 5 when I was dual boxing it, def not w/ 6)

Edit:
Quote:
So 7H is the minimum possible for 6 pops set assuming you don't have competition on the turtle, have all pop items before hands, have all !! procs, don't go pee etc.

What do you mean by pop items ahead of time? Like all pop items for KI NMs(bat, scorp, hecteyes) or all pop items for items that drop pop items for KI NMs?(clioid, mandy, skull).

Farming all my things ahead of time and dboxing them to myself to where I only needed to get !! NMs, I could do 2 pop sets and then change jobs and do 2 chloris in under 2hrs.

#47lynnminmay, Posted: Apr 09 2011 at 1:26 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) If you farm your pops you double the time needed for 1 pop. The only thing you can buy at the AH are HQ limule & clionid, blood bat, venomous scorpion claw, alkaline humus, baleful skull. Bloodshot hecteye, tarnished pincer, shriweled wing, exo skull can be bought at the AH but they are never on, so you can't count on that.

You need all 6 because you need to proc !!. You also never need the same char because the claimer only gets the KI.
You'll need at least whm+dd to hold it, but you are far from caping !! You need at least a third to finsih red procs. You remaining 3 can do stuff but seriously they can't because it means you don't progress linearly with you KI. If you don't proc the same KI 6 times in a row you waste more time running around.

It's easy enough to rotate NMs. you're all going to have to run eventually to a new NM. What does it matter if you all do it at the same time? could even go into 2 groups of 3, but even if you went in groups of 2, deaggro and reclaiming NM is still going to be much faster than keeping all 6 ppl at once.

I didn't say 5 min for limule or clionid I said 5 for scorpion, stop acting like an idiot making it sound that 95% of you time is spend killing NMs. You are NOT killing the KI NMs in under 5 minute, and that's not because they are long to kill but because you have 13 WS to proc ¿ Plus the scorpion is especially an ***.

I was including the !! time, buddy. It doesn't take that long.

Between getting hints and the times the hints don't proc, it'll never AVERAGE out to 5 mins a kill.

Varies by server, I suppose. Tarnished Pincer was the 100% most common and the thing i bought most of any other pop item during my entire trial.

Bloody bat fang balaful skull HQ wings and pincer etc are pretty low drop rate even with a THF. And you find 50 minute for one pop ? ********* If you had all of them sure why not otherwise facepalm.
