Made my limbus ls leader say "I'll never dout the power of a DRG/BLU again." after doin CoP 3-5 with the most off group ever.

PLD/WAR
WAR/NIN
DRG/BLU <<< Stunner sorta
BRD/WHM
WHM/BLM
BLM/WHM <<< level 38

Not only did he go down fast, Head **** landed on three Nightmares. Fourth one was Flat Bladed by the BRD.

Felt really good doin that fight with a group everyone said would die and we shouldn't even try it. ^^

1/7 on fights that were just for me. I think I was 1/5ish when I was camping with a "friend" who stopped camping with me once he got his.

Well ive been working at soloing the ENM Pullng the Plug for a while now for a toreadors ring. And as of last Thursday, Toeador's Ring O!! ^_^

I did get stupid lucky though. 4/11 on solo wins. 1/4 on drop. But I did win 3/4 of the last 4 i did, so i was finally getting the hang of it. Its pretty fun but Drg can solo this ENM and getting the ring definately makes it worth it!

Congrats, Aanalaty!

Out of curiosity, what's your solo strategy in there? Namely, do you kill the Contemplator or ignore it and go straight to the Red MR?

Congrats. I've tinkered with idea of camping Argus, but the long spawn time was a major deterrent to me. I'll probably end up just farming up the gil for one doing BCNMs, KSNMs, ISNMs and random farming.

Congrats man.

Dynamis Buburimu win and a Wyrm Belt drop. Been experimenting with belt to see where it might be useful, since using swift for tp and warwolf for WS. (jumps and tp on high eva mobs (lurker)) Qufim left, then Dyna Tav here we go...

Merit pt (mammools) w/ LS mates - on my dragoon with rdm and 2 brds, can't complain. One funny moment was when the nin saw me eating meat and decided to do same... mijined himself 30 sec later. (Ate Sushi after raise XD) Received an indirect complimentary tell from the 297 scythe drk, (something to the effect of "holy **** drg" from his rdm friend) which made my day sweeter, I wont deny it. ^^;

* * *

Helping out on 8-4 as dragoon - nin, rng, mnk, drg, blm, rdm

This fight is easier then most pm mission fights, but this is the first time I've been in such a heavily melee oriented pt, and first time doing it as dragoon. Leader asked me to go /thf so I can plant hate on the tank... which turned out to be a bad idea after my first sata wheeling thrust, 10 sec later boss kills nin... now I'm trying to figure out how I can stay alive without any defense mitigation. >.>; (super jump ftw.) Near the end of phase 1, I grabbed hate but we were able to kill nm before my hp went below orange.

Phase 2, nin still weakened, so I did my own thing... got my hp to red. Super Jump. While I rested, Nin unweakened... provoked, fought... then died again (good thing dying = no xp penalty). Blm went down afterwards. Rdm died. (i'm still resting, hp @ orange now) Rdm & Blm had RR on, nin didn't. By the time my hp reached yellow, prishe Died... but rdm managed to raise her. My hp back to white. mnk and i kiting. After a few jumps and hits nm after me again, super jump up again. Blm and Rdm goes down again from AOE, no rr on. Mnk goes down, no rr on. Prishe 2 hours (benedictionga + TP300) My wyvern died 2nd times, couldnt 2 hour ;;.

Just me, rng, 2 npc left with NM at 20%. All in all a very interesting fight in the remainder 20%, had to disengage once or twice (after superjump) to rest a bit. rng kited. Prishe did her thing. I forgot so much about this fight, kept WSing when it had invincible up ... ;;

In any case at 1%, with me and rng at red, rng got a barrage off, and yay 2k limit points for repeat win (ppl who died that were helping got none unfortunately.) I got to watch CS again as dragoon, cool stuff.

The only thing I can say is, don't go as /thf, it sucks donkey balls. /Sam or even /nin would have been alot better. (Or maybe pld/nin better choice?) Having said that, me (and rng) were the only one that did not die throughout the entire fight, go figure. Something to be said about knowing how to play the hate line.

All in all nice way to come back to game after a short respite...

Three logs later, finally got my Thalassocrat .

Granted, three logs is worth more than the lance itself, and I lost an Adaman and Scintillant ingot along with the two logs, bringing the cost of the lance to roughly 1.6-7 mil. As such, I more than overpaid for it in time and effort. BUT! It's still satisfying.

Back to Onzozo.

I finally reached level 60 DRG! Which, I suppose, is not that monumental but I'm having a blast wearing my full AF and soloing with /White Mage and healing at 50 % health.

Well, only 15 levels to go! On a side note, any one know any good dragon diets? My wyvern is putting on some weight...thinking about renaming him "Flabby".

There is that moment in time, when something comes along that justifies the time and effort put in to make your job the best it can be, and last night was it for me...

It started off after I started soloing at the G. colibri camp, after resting from a +3 merit drg burn pt earlier on.

Not too long after, 2 dragoons came by to duo. I knew one of them by reputation (he just obtained Valkyrie Lance recently) so I just /cheer him on kept on soloing within sight of one another, since the camp had no problem supporting 3 of us. The other dragoon then asked if I wanted to join them, and I accepted... and commenced a sublime experience of bliss.

We had more or less identical TP(Homam) & WS(Heca) gears, with the exception of heads and lance. Those 2 had Ace's Helm, I had Turban. Thalassocrat for me, Mezraq for the leader, and of course Valkyrie Lance for the last member. (Just seeing that lance in action... w00t) The guy with the Mez was using Maat Cap for WS. We all had Wyrm Armet, MP santion and Ethereal Earring. We were using meat. In another word, I was in drg heaven. I took alot of SS lol.

This was one of the only rare times when race probably mattered (me hume, they elvaan)

The 3 of us were killing at around the same speed as the 6drg burn pt before ^^. Our chain was limited by the fact that a party dropped by after our 25th(?) chain since they figured we werent really a merit party, proceeded to try to compete. (another party dropped by not long after the first one left) We adapted by speeding up our pulls, so that often then not, were fighting 2 birds at once on a 2:1 formation. (At first one of the member in the other pt started jeering at us since they thought we pulled a link by accident) At one time, it was 3 of us soloing each birdy, (so as to not lose claim) all of us macroing in AF(+1) legs and supporting each other. When we were forced to wait for pops, the 3 of us coordinated ourselves to cover maximum camping ground, then meeting up at the closest intersection with our respective pulls. (thank you battle music patch)

All of the above and more was done, without needing to verbally communicate. Each of us observed the other person's action and reacted accoringly to maximize support for one another. This kind of empathy, (and the maturity not to respond to other pt's provocation) even more then the gears themselves, was what made the whole experience a paragon of dragoon excellence. The only time we spoke was to greet each other in the beginning and to bid farewell in the end, with 225 tnl to my 10th merit.

If anyone is on Ifrit this Sunday, send Quirena a /tell if you need those Prommies.

This is my 1st actual post on Allah, but i'm always reading up on the Drg forums.
I doubt this is much of an achievement in the eyes of all of all you Uber equip endgame drgs, but i was proud of it.
I recently got my Blu to 37 at last for to have another SJ for soloing and my friend says i should try solo an avatar, so i had a bash at Ifrit prime and won as drg/blu after nearly 14 minutes and with 48hp left xD
I didn't think it was possible but i was determined to at least last until his 2hr but it was easier to avoid then i thought with super jump, i was using my pretty standard merit party gear with fire resist gear on macro standby, i used a tav taco for defence and along with cocoon shot my defence to over 550 making his normal attacks weak as ****, only his add effect fire was a pain, and his attacks give enough time to get healing breath off comfortably with headbutt, used 3 yag drinks and a few hp pots, had to call wyvern mid fight after he killed it once due to getting used to hate control with a slightly different setup.
Overall it was a great experience but cost me alot of gil so it wont be a common thing i do xD But it has given me a huge appreciation of what /blu can do.
Btw naturally i did this on Watersday to give myself a fighting chance.
Closest ive come to endgame so far is a couple of dynamis runs so my gears not that great and it might not seem like much of an achievement to you guys, but im proud of myself :p
