Sky Farming......PUP StyleFollow

Myself and a few other Lv. 75 PUPs are going to be heading up to sky tomorrow and see just exactly what all we can blow up up there with our BLM puppets.

We're planning on trying all sorts of different things to see exactly what a small group of PUPs can do in sky. Some ideas we tossed around were Diorite farming, Ro'Maeve Water farming, Despot, and Faust.

During our last sky farming run, there were 2 PUPs in the group of 6 trying to farm Diorites at the Ullikummi camp. With just 2 of us, two x3 Ice Maneuver Blizz IV were taking Aura Statues from 100% down to about 50-55%, so with 4-5 PUPs there the kills would be very easy and also the exp would be pretty nice.

We also tested nukes on dolls (trying to pop Despot) and I think just 4 PUPs can take down dolls in a single round of Blizz IV's from 4 puppets.

We'll see what we can do and I'll post our results here.

BTW, the LS is "LotB" which is "LordsOfTheBeasts" of Shiva server. Here's our website if anyone wants to go pay us a visit. lotb.mmoguildsites.com

I just found Faust up so I sent the Automaton in and......I was a little surprised. Even though I don't have a Scanner equipped, the puppet went with Thunder III rather than Blizzard IV on Faust.

Here's the pic.

Aura Statues in sky don't have anything on us!!!

3 PUPs. One using WHM puppet and making it use Dia at the start of each fight, then the other two are using BLM puppets to blast them down. It's working very well, as you can see in the Screenshot.

http://i718.photobucket.com/albums/ww183/YeagerRamuh/PUPTrioAuraStatues.jpg

Another PUP should be coming online soon, so things should be even easier once he gets on.

Nah, we didn't try Ullikummi today. We're going to attempt it on Wednesday with others from the LS there. I'll take some screen grabs of the puppet's damage on Ullikummi.

Oh, and Lyrminas and I were easily able to duo Aura Pots with ease meleeing with WHM puppets. No Waters dropped though after about 2 hours of killing pots.

So we've killed Olla Grande twice now with PUP x2, THF, SMN, BRD

Lyrminas the PUP tanked the entire fight pretty much except for when Titan would tank after Mountain Buster.

Screenshot here. http://i718.photobucket.com/albums/ww183/YeagerRamuh/OllaGrandeKill1.jpg

@Solrain

Thank you !!! it's a lot of fun, we're pushing the pupness as far as we can take it

and trying new things :D One of our ls thfs came up and we managed to get 4 waters in

30 minutes. So we went after olla and voila!

MG was up as well so we wanted to try this method:

Whm Head pup > Light > Dark > Bio II MG Deactivate

Other pups nuke with sneak on. This however will only work till 50% ( Dot method from whm head )

so..... We were thinking sacking someone to dot it after the 50% mark.

Unresisted Bliz IV with Tranquilizer ( full af2 + acp body 7mab macc ) took 9% off MG

If we can manage to pull all our pewps up to sky!

At the time we only had BRD/nin SMN/sch PUP/nin PUP/nin that were left after 4 ollas so we fed

the taru SMN to MG.... * laughs *

While on this post! I'm really amped to see if they will introduce Thunder IV come this 80 cap ^0^

So we're at it again today!

We have 3 PUPs again today, so this time we decide to try and pop Despot. What we've done is each of us work up x3 Ice Maneuver then timed Deploy. 3 Blizzard IVs practically one-shot the dolls while they still sit in their lil' cubby holes.

Sure enough, we got Despot and here's the SS. http://i718.photobucket.com/albums/ww183/YeagerRamuh/DespotKillPUPTrio.jpg

Nice trio.

Y'alls should try him solo, it's much fun.

If I'm going for despot I'll either PUP/war and spam provoke while Serenade swings at it as I kite, or PUP/sch and sleep-nuke groundskeepers and D-A-D nuke Despot.

We're aware that Despot can be solo'd, but the point of our strategy was to kill the dolls fast and efficient while they still sat in their alcoves. Kills were very quick and we would just work our way up and down each side, like a conveyor belt until Despot popped for us.

Has anybody been able to kill Aura stats solo? WHen i go/nin i tend to deaggro them around the porter, or have trouble recasting shadows so i end up getting 3 nukes(need 4) in before im hurting on hp. This is with hermes sandals. maybe i just suck at kite/nuke, or need to make more efficient blink macros.

I have not tried /sch, but the mobs are VT-IT and im not sure how reliable a sleep spell would be.

any input besides suck less?;_;

As pup/sch with Plutos staff and +33 Int (hume)i get a fairly decent sleep rate.
what i usually do is a 3x ice on the dolls when there on the porter then vent. When im on the 2nd flight of stairs to the pond areas i deploy the same automaton again to get an extra nuke off then deactivate and run to the pond. when i get there i usually just wait for the doll to catch up and pop a sleep. Occasionally it'll deaggro but usually its within a step or two from casting range if im standing at the pond. After that i just Sleep + Nuke if one gets resisted it's pretty easy to kite around the pond till the timers back up.
