Grats! Still waiting on this, Uggalepih Pendant (need to farm up trigger and do the fight rather than buying it) and I guess a Novio if I want to be as good as Kerb for my QD build. You fellow CORs will cry when you see this, but...

I'm 1/4. However, the 1 was lost because we won with 1 minute to go (first time going up and wasn't with my best static). No one else wanted it, so I lotted no contest. However, our dead person went afk and didn't accept the raise they were given, so the treasure was lost. /fume

got my Commodore Tricorne. Now just need 2 more levels to use it! Id be 75 already if it wasnt for SE's game glitching.

(the game copied 3 brd instruments and 8 poison pots and overwrote my bullet pouches and cards so i was left with 6 instruments and 2 amounts of 8 poison pots. I had enough bullets to get me to 75!

I hope I get them back.. im gonna be ****** of SE says they arnt gonna reimburse me >.>

For QD, I still need the af2 hat for wiz roll.

Also the +1 gun, but I'm making a mule especially for that since demand is so high where I am. I think I can recoup leveling smithing to 70 for my bone mule (who is only 90) with a few sales.

Mercurial Kris - mine.

I'll probably sell it when I ever get around to camping a Joytoy but just aren't on for long stretches to camp that thing as often as I used to be.

Ding~ COR75! I leveled into:

Denali Bonnet, Mirke Wardecors (currently specced for THF), Denali Jacket, Denali Kecks, Skadi's Chausses, and Skadi's Jambeaux. Then I merited a bit and unlocked Snake Eye!

Very small achievements as I'm still a lowbie cor, but cor lvl 40, trump gun, evoker's roll and quickdraw! Those make me a happy kitten ^_^. And it's great to shoot stuff. This job is so much more fun than brd and still get the same invite rate. :P

1/8th resist shots (~50-70ish damage) for the last 20-25 or so shots with 1-2 shots that didn't resist. (This was with RDM roll up the entire fight) I even started replacing MAB slots with more agi in hopes that I could change the rate of resists, but it ended up doing nothing. The fight doesn't really change after rage (I'm assuming this is what happened as he never hit me to really find out if that's what happened) just the damage is reduced by a lot.

I really didn't expect it to happen at all considering what I've read and the fact that I have a pretty good QD build. I'm no mage so I'm not totally up to speed on what causes resists with magic damage, so the idea that fighting on Lightningsday would cause more water shots to resist (and thus draw out the fight) was just an assumption, which seems logical.

Edit: QD Build if it matters - Borrowed a friend's Ugg. pendant and Neptune's staff for Wulgaru.

Commodore Frac, Tricorne, and Belt all in the somewhat recent past (***** you SE, I've endured your massive lag 2004 bullsh*t). Also AF+1 Tricorne, & Enkidu's Subligar finally from Dea today. All I really need now is another Silkworm Thread from Temenos to complete AF+1 Bottes, and I'll be very close to complete on Rare/Ex drops.

Time to camp Limbus again.. I must say, one thing that has happened multiple times now.. Is, I'll ask a Temenos party leader if they're willing to sell Silkworm Thread before I Tele-Holla and head down there.. I get no response, and then half an hour later I get a tell saying it dropped. I'd be done by now if people would respond; at least acknowledge my /tell. But no, they expect me to be a mind reader.

Oh well, all that's left is Nimue's Tights, though hardly anyone does SCNM. I have Denali Kecks so it's not a big deal. And perhaps something like Legion Scutum, could get fairly cheap off of some ZNM group.

Getting close to only needing gil, and speaking of that.. Yesterday I did Royal Ramble for the first time (Balga's Dais KS30), and for the first time ever went away from a BS/KS/IS deal pleased. Orichalcum Ingot is 100%, so it can't possibly go too badly. Might wanna try that if you're wondering what to do with some KS.

I'm considering trying wulgaru myself sometime soon considering I want the Hachimaki for my SAM's penta build and I'd use the trophy to get a Paintorn pop in hopes of getting Legion scutum. I'm considering working on a water obi and maybe getting Neptune's Staff also but atm i don't have either. Also I haven't tried to solo a ZNM yet. Was wondering where you fought Chigre after popping it. I know 2 chigoes are usually near his pop and repop somewhat quicklyy. Did you fight him there or pull him up the tunnel a bit? I'm 0/2 on blood ring so still trying for that.

I've had a pretty good run of drops lately, though not all for my COR. Got enki sub on my first try (the ONLY time I've popped any ZNM at all and gotten my desired drop the first time). Got Tomoe for my SAM not long after that, then got enkidu hands (not my pop mind you, but I gave the guy the Naglering mine dropped in exchange for him giving me enki hands if they dropped for him... and luckily they did). Completed Usu legs for my SAM. Got Aurum Feet for my WAR after going a combined 0/6 on armed gears/Achamoth.

It's funny. I think I have the worst luck ever lol. Every time we do T3 or T4, the person who pops before me gets the drop I want. Every time. The same guy went before me on gears and then acha and got feet both times. I got Organics lol. So me and this guy had a deal in place after I gave him my Organics... he'd get another gear pop and if feet dropped, they were mine. Well, this time gears were stingy and didn't drop. I thought I was up next and would have a good chance but someone else had more points than I did and went instead. "I bet $10,000 he gets feet" I told my friend. Guess what? He got TWO PAIRS! lol thankfully he hooked me up with the 2nd pair so yay.

Popped Tinnin yesterday. The pop before mine... enki body and cap ><. Curse continues, though I didnt want the cap. My pop netted the only Tinnin trophy (but meh, not making a mythic and beating PW not really looking all that likely atm). Only other drop I got was oracles cap ;/. But still, all in all, a pretty good gear haul of late.

That's why I'm working on Wulgarus as well. No drop in 2 pops though. :( I also got the Paintorn pop for a Legion scutum as well. As for chigre you just melee down the 2 Fleas and pull him out of the tunnel, past the amertat, and into the square kiting tunnel. Blood ring on my first, Insect ring on second, and nothing on the third and fourth kills.

I also ended up solo'ing a cheese hoarder pop for a friend. It was so much easier than with a group.

Obtained my second set of COR items this week from limbus so I'll have the +1 hat tomorrow. Got around to unlocking my Trial gun, but I didn't feel like asking people to help with it so I just went down there on COR.

Huh not a bad idea, soloing Chigre -> Wulgaru -> Mahjlaef pop. Might do that, and offer it to a ZNM group. Let 'em have the Aurum, Oracles, Staff, and Grips, in return for the shield.

I wondered about this, too. When fought with a group he runs back to his pop spot and comes back after a while. Someone told me he runs after the third nuke but if you hit him with a fourth, he comes back. I'm not sure on that but it might be plausible.

anyway, it seemed to me like QDs counted as nukes. If I ever double-shotted him rq, he fled like a *****. If you kite him around the salvage portals, will be bail and run after a few shots or stay on you the entire time?

He ran two times I believe. The first was when my friend decided to try and bloodpact him and it ran immediately. (Decided to just go ahead with the COR solo that way) The the second I don't remember what happened. Other than that he didn't run away at all. It makes me wonder if the mob's TP has anything to do with it. Like...after a certain amount of time if he gains any TP he'll run or something.

Water shots were doing like 530 on him unresisted so it was a quick fight.

Hmm, seems pretty high. My QD set is pretty solid (lacking novio but I've got a fair chunk of AGI/MAB, and 5 combos of HQ staff/obi to work with). Last time I fought him with a pt, i seem to remember my ice shots doing 375 ish. Wiki claims he's weak to wind so maybe i'll try that a try. Already have the obi for it.
