+1 Artifact / Relic setsFollow

Hey folks.

Forums are slow, so to mark the occasion that I finally turned in my 5th and last piece of SMN Artifact to be +1'd, I'm wondering who else has gone and done the same, just for the kicks on the old green pajamas.

Even better though, was getting my first piece of +1 Relic recently... our shell does a lot of CoP zones, so perhaps I might see a full +1 relic set before the servers close out.

Anyone working on that?

SMN AF+1: 5/5 Sep. 10 2009
SMN Relic +1 1/5 (Horn)

This topic is just for fun and to share a minor accomplishment :)

i'm 5/5 af+1, nashira, oracles, goliard, and 4/5 penance, 3/5 relic+1. don't hold your breath on getting body +1, it drops from clusters and is still incredibly rare.

I had thought it was LttP>LA>LoZ>LoZ2>OoT>MM and then WW and TP were supposed to be like... alternate universes or something. Or it might not matter, because it's a ******* video game about a 4'5" elf saving an eternal cocktease.

Aye, but doing Tav once to twice a month, lightning can always strike. :) Working on my multi-sets... just have goliard cuffs left to get, we don't do Ultima as often as we should. Still waiting on the -perp hands but have the skill feet.

the way tav is set up is peculiar, and unfortunately, aside from sch,cor,blu,pup and dnc, all other sets are comparatively rarer, especially any -1. most runs, even with a thf, we see at most 2-3 pieces. to compound it further, the jobs are split based on what you kill, makara vs bees and clusters vs leeches. smn legs are off bees, and body is off clusters. i know of only one single person that has body.

Yea, I've done about 4 weeks ago. Just for "town gear", except I don't have room in inventory to carry it so it is just in mog house.

Relic just refuse to drop though. I've seen 2 feet (passed on first since I felt sorry for the other SMN having bad luck on drops, lost on second), 4-5 hands (won first), 0 heads/bodies/legs.

At least hands is the good piece.

3/5 relic+1 here as well. Hands, Legs, and Feet. Trying to get Horn soon, hopefully. The body, though... I don't expect to ever see it.

Got the Cuffs yesterday, huzzah.

Talked with my shell... it seems they avoid clusters like the plague. :X

They like killing bees though. We'll see how things go. :)

Sadly there seem to not be much info on wiki, but the reason nobody does clusters is because the small ones explode and deal about 1k to everyone near, and the large one I believe throws out burn-ga for about 30 HP per tick.

They are simply awful to fight unless you can kill them really fast.

(Could perhaps be possible to bring a pet job like SMN to hold small ones far away and make them blow themselves up.)

I threw out the AF body and hands, so I guess you could say I'm 3/3 AF+1. I can't find a shell that does Dreamlands though, so I'm not expecting to see Relic+1. Even if I did, RDM would come first.

I'm 4/5 AF+1 (the gloves i just haven't wanted. I don't find myself in the mp conversion situation often enough to carry them)

I'm also 3/5 relic+1. I really want the +1 body and the +1 feet, but those two never drop for me. My ls sometimes used to do clusters at the end of our tav run, but now i'm having to look for a stand alone dynamis shell outside of my hnmls.

My hnmls has so many people in it now, that it's not practical to do the 32 person dreamland zones or tavnazia anymore. So now they're doing only cities and beaucedine and xarcabard because our leader is relic crazy and we have 2 dozen relics in the shell. I'm going to have to start building up lotting points all over again in another shell :(


My real beef with tav is that no shell i know fights the makara, which those really awesome pantin pants -1 drop from. I don't know how i'm gonna solve the tav problem.

@Mellowy: Since I don't have an idea of what kind of setup you need to bring to Tav being only 18 people: Wouldn't the Burn thing be non-issue these days if you have a SCH for Accession Erase or a WHM for Esuna for each party?

I would imagine a WHM-merited Shell V + Barfira might make the Self-D's livable if you didn't stun them outright with a BLM or DRK (Are they stunnable?)

Convincing a shell that people are skilled enough to fight these things without letting them go off (or remove quickly in the case of the AoE Burn) would be quite another task unto itself, I'd imagine.

Hah. Pantin pants -1 is the only thing dropping for my LS. We have gotten at least 4, and have zero 75 PUPs. But that is SE's random generator. It just loves giving you what you don't want.

(I actually got the first one, and I'm 6/6 relic (out of which 2 are -1 ready) with my PUP at 35. Such an unfair world)

I don't remember setups, but it was ages ago since we did tavnazia. Usually it is in combination with only having about 20 people online for dynamis.

general pt setup for tav is blm party, 2 dd party

blm pt is 4 blm, cor, whatever(thf or smn).
dd party is 4 dd, whm, brd.
2nd dd party is 3 dd, pld, rdm, brd.

BRDs rotate parties for 4 buffs on DD.

kill buggard, worm/antlion. then clear south side of floor 3.
DD parties split off and go to start on floor 2, north or south, and blms manaburn bombs, OR you melee them with a stun rotation.

floor2: north or south based on what you want, clear to TE, farm your set of choice(bees, fish or leeches), GTFO tunnels, then pop TE and farm again until timeout. anything you didn't kill the first time before TE will be doubled, with a few extra spawns so don't get overwhelmed with pulls.

I 5/5'd my artifact+1 about a year ago, after getting my first piece roughly 2 weeks after AF1+1 came out.

It wasn't something I went out of my way to get. ;P

I never did finish my Relic set. 3/5. :(
