How hard to get +2 FeetFollow

For those of you that have it, how hard was it for you to get your +2 Feet? Which NMs did you fight? It looks like the t3 VNM is the way to go but I've heard its really time consuming to get a pop for him.

You could possibly solo Ovni /DNC OR be smart and bring some friends along. It pops every 15-20 minutes in Abyssea - La Theine.

The fight's not very hard and you could easily do it with NIN, BLM, and WHM for a good chance at yellow procs.

I did the VNM, took me 3 goes, and is easy to to the T3 via /sh if your not greedy and just lock 2xcards (or coins w.e it is)

T1: Change in a Visions zone
T2: Much higher success rate at changing colour, easy nm to camp, pops neat flux 1 where the amoebean and murex are.
T3: If your in a group, make the pop set solo on NIN/DNC, then drag your group along for 1 T3 VNM.

I managed to get 2 t3 pops last night. One for me and one on my mule. If I organize a party, is there a long respawn on T3's?

Delay between pops seems to be around 25mins from my experiance. Make sure you cover all procs, its a nighmare on T3's when its the 1 yellow proc you don't have.

I did Ketea for my +2 feet. Ketea is so easy with a whm healer. The only issue was turning your Colorful demilune abyssite in to a Crimson demilune abyssite. There was a lot of competition for that T2 VNM, but now that everyone is camping Ovni, it seems almost uncamped. One Ketea kill is much faster than 3 Ovni kills when you consider the competition.

I started with Ketea as it seemed the best route (Ovni was not an option at this time). First fight no !! so just one card 2nd time I tried without a Whm and we wiped, disheartened I left it for a few months.

I went a 3rd time this week with LS peeps and got 3 with !! I then got the rest off Ovni which is indeed now quite often camped annoyingly by soloers most of whom wouldn't even let me get !! for them as Blm, without !! don't even bother with Ovni it's not reliable at all and your wasting yours and others time, striking a compromise with soloers is best as most people are after the card alternate with them some is better than none at all.

The biggest kick in the teeth was I got 6/6 on Ovni then while passing Shaolin belt the treasure pool shifted and in my haste I passed my card, instantly dropped party to get back in but was too late and no one got it ><.

If like me you have no reliable group of ingame friends you can just call upon at any time for Ketea then go with Ovni as long as you can consistantly land !! on it and get claim then this is relatively easy and you should see a card every other kill maybe more.

If you can muster up a decent full proc Blu Nin Whm Blm party with someone /brd at the drop of a hat and don't mind spending possibly 1.5 - 2+ hours getting a full 1 shot only tier 3 pop then Ketea is for you.

I'd personally aim to do both if you can though I certainly found Ovni to be less of a challenge to prepare for in terms of manpower and time.

Carabosse seems to have a very good drop rate on the cards, that's how I got mine, helping someone out with a Masamune.

Farming the two force-spawned NMs might be easier than camping Ovni. Your mileage may vary. You'll not be able to solo Carabosse, probably, so bring a WHM friend.

You might be able to just team up with one of the groups working for empyreans and lot the cards, if your diplomacy skills are good.

Sounds like you had alot of bad luck which ofcourse happens from time to time. Ketea or Ovni or Carabosse are all viable routes. The fact that Ovni and Cara drop the card has taken strain of the T2 VNM in vunk. Remember changing the colour to a T3 pop has a good drop rate so you won't need to fight the T2 many times.

Best setup is NINorMNK, BLM/BRD, WHM, BLU. Its not even worth trying Ketea without stagger as you can't reset him.

I've been doing Carabosse and its pretty easy. Two force pop NMs to get the pop set, 3 ???s that spawn her so it goes pretty quickly. I really freakin hate VNMs.

Edit: We are 2/5 on Carabosse so far, and 1/2 on Ovni, 1/2 on Ruminator. Drop rate is ok. Ovni is heavily camped on my server. People are bringing 6+ to fight it, so I wouldn't suggest bothering with Ovni.

I did carabosse for all of mine (took two runs). Just put 1-2 people on gems, one person on the coin, and you've got a good lowman group for it. If anyone needs the atma or you have friends who want to help, that is even better. The KI are easy to farm, and Carabosse herself isn't bad, just a long fight. And make sure you pull her off to the side so that another group doesn't spawn theirs next to yours and then their benediction cures your Cara too...

This. Also, I've seen her go to Winter Breeze (BLM mode), and completely wreck unprepared parties. Being pulled away from the spawn lets you zombie her to recover. She will not go to the ??? and regen to full, she will just despawn after a tick on the ???. If this happens to you, beat on her, switch her to any other mode, and then just evasion tank her without feeding more TP. Wait on weakness to wear, profit.

That. Happend to us on 2 occasions while making a Masa and we were prepared. It was however very easy for our THF to hold while I waited the 5mins for weakness to wear. That was before the triple ???'s so the benediction issue is even more of a reason to fight away from ???.

By far, the best way to fight Carabosse is to proc red around 40-50% before she uses Benediction. Then just kill her before red wears off. Then you don't even have to worry about the huge defense bonuses she gets from using Benediction.
It does take some pretty strong dps to do this (IE - not likely to happen for low-man), but it's so freakin sweet when you kill Carabosse in about 2 minutes instead of 8-10.

Edit - also I would suggest checking for red proc with an elemental weaponskill that doesn't proc red. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think this is correct: using Aeolian Edge or Blade: Yu can find the hint for red proc. Again, I'm not 100% sure and I can't test while servers are down.

I spammed ovni with my friend on BLM and my other friend on THF. Has a pretty high drop rate on the +2 item, but long respawn. I only did it because I had 500+ minutes in the zone.

I do not suggest carabosse AT ALL, I went 2/12 on her and the 2 drops I got were solo without yellow procs ._.

Ketea is the best and fastest way imo.

the best time to do ovni is around 4-5cst. that is when it is lest campped it seems, i got 4/6 cards from him 2 without yellow 2 with. the other 2 i got from carabose, its easy to farm the pops from gold boxes. myself and a buddy bst killed carabose 2xbst, so it might be different for you.
