Saw a Nirvana todayFollow

Was trying to camp Lizardtrap for Fenrir's Crown on Phoenix today. Got 2 kills in this afternoon, then had to do a BCNM... came back and apparantly someone else was coming in, killing it and leaving. Tried looking for it all afternoon until this evening when I checked and it still wasn't up, went to leave and it spawned right in front of me.

I started to solo with Ifrit like I usually do, but I screwed it up, ate a Paralyga before I could get away. Botched resummon because I was still running away when Ifrit decided not to resist a Blizzaga III and died from 40% health.. interrupted the resummon, got an air spirit out but it targeted me with a Blizz IV and hit me with it at max range. Failed pull, nobody around though. My fault either way.

Around 3 minutes into weakened, a naked TH4 THF shows up, walks up to it and pulls it back to the entrance. Thought this unusual, so I followed, and lo and behold there's another SMN there, by the name of "Refill", and he has a Nirvana.

So I owe my afternoon of frustrations to this lovely chap who's toting around a pocket THF. Unfortunately, SE screws over everyone alike, and he didn't get the drop either.

But after getting 2 Askar bodies mooched in two days, seeing a JP Nirvana just takes the cake along with the icing. It also makes me wonder what kind of resources you need to have at your beck and call to upgrade a mythic as a SMN, given the general populations attitude towards the class.

Just one of those days, I suppose. One of those weeks, even. Can't seem to catch a break, unless I'm the one breaking. X)

Is there a latent on crown? Accuracy on Fenny doesn't seem to be a must have stat.

None that I know of, but I assume it's better than the 5 accuracy from Evokers +1. All my gear and merits are sunk into Magic Accuracy and Magic Attack, so if I can give Fenrir a nudge in the accuracy department for soloing with it's probably worth it. Same reason I'm not too worried about those magic acc shoes for shiva since my gear is already stacked with it.

Managed to get one more claim tonight, soloed it down with Shiva, although it was a bit dicey at the end. 0/3 for crown now.

Our endgame shell had an open query about if anyone was going for mythic and wanted support from LS. Nobody really stepped up. Personally I didn't expect to have the time to invest to get it (and I still haven't done all 50 assaults, nor beaten all salvage bosses, nor re-climbed the nyzul place)

It probably doesn't matter all that much. Most of the requirements needed to obtain a mythic can be (and might already have been) fulfilled using other jobs, and as for the alexandrite, you're going to be buying the vast majority of it anyway.
