My LS recently took on Jailer of Justice. I was BLM, not SAM during the fight, and to BIO hold JoJ while pt recovered from wipe I ended up loosing 14k exp, taking only 1 raise 1, 2 raise 2 and the rest all raise 3 (14k in 2 fights, mind you... We fought 2 JoJ. That was my 1st day fighting JoJ, and untill that day my LS had only obtained 1 Justice Torque.

Final result after the 2 JoJ: 2 Justice swords, 2 Justice Torque, 1 Virtue. I'm now one of the proud owners of a Justice Torque!!! The 3rd that droped for my LS. On my 1st day fighting JoJ >:D

Now I just need to decide whether I keep my crappy Aqua Torque for its recently added hidden effect Storage -1, or toss it XD

Got my AF weapon yesterday... SWEET!

OK, instead of starting another thread, I'll use this one to do my dirty work. I need a meat guide. I'm currently 42 and plan on using meat all the way to 75. I have level 4 gkt merits and pretty good acc gear that only gets better as I'll level. I've been sticking with the basics, meat/chief kabobs, but I'm sure there is more 'potent' stuff out there for the later levels. I checked the sam stickies and only saw meat kabobs and rice balls as food options. I suppose I'm posting this to save myself a little effort doing the research because I know of plenty of good meat dishes but as far as level effectiveness, I do not. If there is a guide out there, would someone please direct me to it? Thanks '-')b

Use Rice Dumplings(+22% attack capping at +45 and +5 acc) until about 50-55. Then switch to Mithkabobs. At 70ish start using Courel Subs/Sis Kebabi or Hedgehog Pies.

Some people from my god ls on lakshmi where camping ulli yesterday before downtime. We were able to get the claim and stone before we had to log(woot). We then all decided to log off in sky and camp ulli again when the server is back up. So 3 hours later we all get back in and reform to camp ulli. Bad news was none of our tanks came back! So we kill some place holders and look for a tank when poof ulli pops and we are still without one. So me (sam/war) and my buddy Charun (war/nin) decide we are going to kite this *****. So with our voke, his nin skillz, and my seigan we were able to kite ulli and get a second stone.

i could rightfully be accused of spamming this link, but there are few others more useful for melees. it lists all foods in the game and their stats, including what % different meats raise ATT and what the %s cap off at.

note, the full list is at the bottom of the page (i linked directly to the melee ATT foods the creator of the page chose to emphasize). the previous poster mentioned rice dumplings, whose 5ACC (read: 1 sniper's ring worth) bonus is obviously great, and whose ATT bonus tops off at 45 at 225 base ATT. a tip for finding all the ATT foods on the page: go to "edit / find" (ctrl+f)on your browser and search for "Base Attack", as it appears in all and only foods with an ATT bonus.

you can then compare your base ATT in game with the foods you're considering, and if the food is something you've never heard of, you can check ffxiah.com to see if any have sold recently, and if they're exorbitantly priced (alternatively, you can look the food up on alla-or-anywhere, and see if the ingredients are rare/expensive). of course, the availability of a high level cooking friend/self can influence your food decisions.

when i lv'd monk, i used mithkabobs and chiefkabobs for almost my entire way to 75 (we didn't have sushi in those days of walking a mile uphill to school). i use sushi when it's necessary, though nowadays in merit situations i usually use hedgehog pie or sis kebabi/coeurl sub. i haven't had a pt that merited using red curry in a long time. on SAM i did meat jerky -> rice dumpling -> chiefkabob/sis kebabi, but i often used sole sushi as well (after my brd-inclusive static broke-_-;). it could be fun to try some unconventional meats (e.g. ic pilav, which i've never seen once in-game. it's a better-in-every-respect meat than chiefkabobs, lasts 180min, and was last sold on my server for a cheap 4k only 5 days ago).

heads up though, if you're relying on pickup parties, you will find yourself in situations where eating meat instead of sushi will simply slow your party down. indeed, it's your party's overhunting and not your appropriate dot-maximizing food choice that slowed the pace, but pickup parties are pickup parties, and not adapting maximally to your situation is not adapting maximally to your situation.

as for my latest SAM accomplishment... finally got saotome kote in dyna-bastok after several months:). just need kabuto and i can strut around like a bigshot, like i do on my giant purple dinosaur monk-_-.

Just beat Maat on Thursday.I am 1/2 with him. First time I died because I didnt have my macros set up right with him, so I ended up hitting Seigan instead of my 2hour, yes those 3-4 seconds did make a difference ; ; but I came back and pawned him ^^

Thanks goes out to Phaedra/Komm/kidved(sp) for helping me get my 2nd test ^^b

Hmm, 7-manned Hakutaku to get a couple O-Hats for my LSmates. Never really had any moments of danger and we wound up killing him 15 minutes faster than a full alliance that was there too.

D. Legs.

We had killed about 8 Byakko, and no D. Legs. So last night we go to fight Byakko last, after we're done with the other gods, and we get the SAM in who has priority on them. Well, mid way through the battle, we notice he is AFK and not doing anything. So, we swap him out and get another melee in there until the battle is over.

D. Legs abj. drops. We invite the AFK SAM... he is still away. we yell at him over vent, spam him through /tells and nothing works. So, the 2nd in line got it: me.

I didn't expect anything from byakko, then this happens! I nearly cried XD
