Haven't had a chance to play with it in weather yet, to see if it's any weather, or elemental specific to the avatar.
Rakshaka got the 3rd drop of the Neck, and he left abyssea a bit early to test it out. Despite assumptions of 1tp per tic, it appears to be 1tp per second, meaning 3tp per tick. Due to the time glitch, it came out to be either 2 or 3 per tick, but he said it came out to 60tp per minute. Either way, it replaces Smn Torque, and there wasn't really anything else to idle in, so it takes the cake. Idle in it for the TP, swap in Eidolon for the BP, and then back into it again. In reality it's a free 45TP bonus for every bloodpact, with a side of incentive to leave avatars out. Combined with the fact the new perp stuff makes Garuda Free, I'm liking it. Unfortunatly I'm finding Merit Pacts to be less desirable on Abyssea NM's. But we'll see.

How tough was the Severer? He aggroed me the other day and I wondered what it would take to kill him... could you do it with a few Summoners? Or is it something that requires a good 6+ people to do?

We went with a full alli on the first one, but by the 3rd one we were down to about 13 people. I don't think summoners could do it, but he appears to be weak to Blunt Damage? So I used Titan/Ramuh, but his hate is weird. I'd take hate on Blood Pact commands, he has some really awesome looking TP moves, but he is dangerous and not to be taken lightly. I'm sure with revisions you could get a group of 6 to kill, he appears kite-able but he does have some large range Dmg moves that prevent it from being too simple.

Just apply to Kupo Perg, stop stalling. Me, you and Rak can chillzilla!

Actually Deviance is pretty much disbanded now since Ikuni quit... I will be in the market for a new shell soon, but there are three on my radar currently, Kupo being one of them. I think I like the idea of Kupo just for something completely new, all new faces and such. I don't like the idea of starting again at the bottom of the totem pole, although that's really inevitable no matter which LS I choose. We'll see :)

I'm loving the merit pacts in abyssea still, but it really does depend on the nm, you're right. But it's wonderful on most regular mobs. I need to get the +10 (maybe 12 now?) magian staff still (I have a 4 mab fey atm). I have 7 mab RR also, so only +11 mab on gear (and 5/5 magic attack merits). Could make good use of the new mab stuff added. But with the windurst mission atma, not only do I get the nice 5/tick refresh (and garuda is 1/tick at 85, need to finish the magian staff for free), but garuda gets 10 int and a nice chunk of +mab to boot. She is now doing ~1700 base damage (level 5 pact) at 0 tp. Was doing that on VT tonberries last night trying for celerity abyssite. I'm pretty impressed with that.

What I REALLY want though, is the atma of Gales. It has Wind attack +40 on it, and some magic acc for wind. 40 more magic attack bonus on wind blade is HUGE. With two lunar abyssite, stacking those two together seems deliciously fun.

Why would the atma work for your avatar though? The game revolves around pets never getting the bonuses others do.

A PUP in my LS yesterday noticed her Atma were active for her Automaton too, I guess she had Regain or something.
Then she went and got the MAB one and her maton was just blowing **** up with Water V xD

That is wonderful news if it applies to avatars as well. Large MAB bonus would make serious dents in mobs.

Yes, the Atma does apply to your pets too, Garuda with +40MAB is a beast :D

(+30 from Lugarhoo, +10 from Windy atma)

I'm dying to get the atma from Hadal Satiator for Shiva. 30 MAB + 30 ice MAB + 30 MAB from Lugarhoo(or MAB/Refresh from Windy) . . . ah the Heavenly Strike goodness!

Just got this beauty today!
Dropped off Misareaux's giant that pops at Riverne Site entrance, killed with 4 people: WHM/SCH(me), BLM/NINx2, RDM/something. We just run around nuking it.
The legs move will ignore shadows but won't wipe them, so you can still survive another hit or 2 after. Its other hits will be absorbed my shadows (except maybe for the shoulder(head?)/lasers one).

It was pretty easy, we killed it 2 times. Both times it dropped PUP, BLM and SMN accessories.

Yea, 100% drop rate. Got mine as well. Fun times, even though the legs move was a real MP sponge. Still more fun than Vunkerln and its HP and MP down move.

Just got this a few seconds ago. the fights easy did it with 2 pup and 3 smn 1 thf.

thf pulled and the smn put avatars on it. Avatars act as tanks while the pup nuke it to death. Dont get hit with Ballistic Kick cause it hurts. you will survive it with cruor buffs and stoneskin, but it strip your gear for 15 sec or so. bloodpact are optional not needed cause pups destroy. If mp allows for it use em. I just let my water spirit melee and nuke never came close to loosing mp.

You die? I was sure it was throat stab with added nakedness. Considering I used Earthen Armor and still ended up at minimal red HP. Unless Earthen Armor doesn't work on WS moves >_>

No never died, i got hit at least 4 times with blalistic kick and survived with 200 or more hp from full health 1342 hp and stonekin. One of the other smns got eaten but thats was just bad timming when he ran in range to Bp.

One of the smn i ran with made a testimobial on wiki he mention something about EA's affect i think.

Severer is not really that bad. I've done it a couple times with 2 other SMNs. It's very much trio-able. Was using Ramuh/Thunderstorm exclusively. With 5/5 merits and magic attack merits its 1.3k damage almost every time. Just have to have an avatar with hate on it at all times, otherwise you're kiting until someone gets a thunderstorm off. Like I said, we did it with 3 but 4-5 smn it will almost never move. It's a fun fight and good items being 100% is **** stuff.

I just wanted to note that if you use physical BPs like Pred Claws in Abyssea, this pendant utterly rocks for Wards like Whispering Wind. I've been doing Pred Claw + Whispering Wind spam lately and it's extremely effective. With Atma of the Minkin Monstrosity + Atma of the Stout Arm + HP/MP/STR/DEX cruor boosts, Garuda is a total beast and you won't run out of MP even spamming both of those BPs back-to-back. With 300% TP, Whispering Wind will heal nearly 600 HP.

The nice thing is that this plays well on keeping Garuda alive if she tends to steal hate, allowing you to reap the benefit of the pendant in order to use the pendant to continue reaping the benefit of the pendant for great justice!

Wait what? I knew Atmas carry over to pets, but Cruor buffs carry over to pets as well?

I hate to be "that guy" but pics or it didn't happen. Are you sure that you aren't thinking of the Jeweled Collar that can be obtained from Gold Chests in La Theine, cause it'd be extremely unlikely for them to have added the accessories to Gold Chests in older zones (it's unlikely that they'd even do it for the newer zones, let alone the older ones).

I assume so, and based on my very non-scientific observations they do seem to help. With no STR/DEX atma on, just the normal STR/DEX cruor buffs, it seems like Garuda is quite a bit stronger than normal.

It only costs 100 cruor so I have just been doing it in case it helps. I'd be curious if someone does eventually test this... for now I'm going to assume based on my observations that it works.


Edit: I'm also gonna have to agree with Vlorsutes on the pendant dropping in a golden chest... pics or it didn't happen.
