I guess this isn't that much of an accomplishment, but I hit 68 last night duoing birds in the thickets. It was my first experience with the real power of a couple of /mage dragoons. Getting constant chain 5 on VT mobs with two people is pretty awesome.

It made me wonder: is a merit pt with a set up along the lines of 5 drg/mage and a bard as good as it seems in my head?

Yes, but that's overkill. Make two of the DRGs with wyrm armet go /mage and the rest go /SAM or /WAR. Easy 25k/hour.

Unlocked Drakesbane a few weeks ago and got Homam Gambieras last Monday. Last night I finally got Askar Korazin after going 0/7 on lotting over 3 months.

It is really nice considering I blew all my points on Homam feet and do not see me getting Homam body anytime soon.

Now I have to work on my 0/6 on Askar head and save points for Hecatomb Harness.

Happy Groundhog's Day! aka Dragoon version

Emerging out of Jeuno's Mog House like the wyvern version of Punxsutawney Phil, Lady tentatively pokes her snout out to explore the airscape of Vana'Diel, only to pull her head back in alarm at all the unfamiliar scents invading her nose.

"I know girl. We've been gone 6 months and everythings changed. My gears are rusted, and most likely outdated. I'm sure my gil is worth alot less then it used to be ever since some RMT on Wall Street crashed the Auction House. Backlog mails of "a little friendly reminder from the lovely Naja Salaheem" on outstanding fees as an "Eternal Mercenary". People we know most likely dead or gone MIA like us...

*receives a {/hello} from someone on my friend list... w00t*

... ok MOSTLY disappeared. I hate to admit it, but looks like we're once again starting as nubs. T___Ta Eh, it doesn's sound too bad. Oops, missed a mail...

...Hmm, a personal invitation from Naja's "club" for tea at the Shararat Teahouse to discuss monthly installment plans... on second thought, lets just call it a night and do some lurking on the Allah forum site to get a better idea on what's there to do."

Wyrm Armet get.

About **** time. Just need 6 AF pieces to be 5/5 on all jobs! 3 Xarca, 2 Jeuno, 2 Beau...

Whislt I'm here. Offsneive subs + Armet... is it like Healing Breaths, can I macro it in after my WS but befor the breath fires off? Or does it have to stay on for the WS too?

It's no big deal as I'd only be losing 4DEX, but even so.

You can, but it's not particularly worth it. The boost to elemental breath damage isn't nearly as significant as the boost to healing breaths, and you'll lose your advantage when your wyvern takes a bit of damage anyway. I did the same thing when I first got my armet, but after seeing the results, I stopped swapping it.

I've been looking over gear for when I hit 75 and it really does seem like the best piece for the slot on Penta/Drakes.

Congratulations on the Rajas Ring! It's definitely nice to see some gold on your fingers after wearing Sniper's/Woodsman for so long. I started playing in '04 I think (a few months before CoP came out), and finally got my ring about a week ago. Glad that's over with!


I capped out Polearm merits yesterday. I'm highly considering dropping a point in Empathy, since my Assault static will, hopefully, be turning into a Nyzul static once we hit Captain--the HP Boost is on the far left, isn't it?

Also, I soloed a Grand Marid. I don't know if that counts as an accomplishment, but I was always sure that they'd play hopscotch on my face. The fight went pretty smooth, though, and I had a good time.

You pretty much need 2 merits into empathy if you want to get the hp boost for Nyzul, unless you don't ever have RR on lol. It's also on the far right, so you have to cancel tect and shell as well to get it. That, Besieged and Campaign are really the only reasons I haven't taken my 2 merits into empathy out and gone 5/5 on Deep Breathing.

I know most have this already but after three deaths getting to the spot, 7 runs later, and a 1500+ Flare casted on me (which I ate dirt after) the O. Hat is mine.

1/7 or 8 Assault Jerkin, with TH3+ each time for myself.


Got all 5 pieces of AF, took about 6 hours.

Now leveling SAM, currently 26.
