This past week has been good for my DNC

Got my 3rd No Foot Rise merit and my first Closed Position merit. Wednesday's Dynamis - Beaucedine netted me some Etoile Tights and last nights Dynamis - Qufim dropped Etoile Shoes with 3 minutes left on the glass. Everyone passed and the shoes are safe in my inventory now.

Ive been 66 for a couple days. Mix of RL chores and low invites 60+.

But got very lucky so far this week with Champaign Campaign (lol) and busted into a few great 5k+ battles.

In the process i discovered i can tank pets and imps now wee :3

Yagudo turret is my new best friend, stand in AoE range, save TP, and youll be put in the red every minute or so for some fat healing and damage-taken exp!

Wish i had 75 to work on merits, but seems the closer you get the harder exp is to come by...

Wait till you can tank the regular mobs, it's fun and full of xp goodness. Only problem being when ppl see you tanking one by yourself they tend to not help since they don't want to be tanking it by themselves if you go down...

"Hey, can you give me a....Hey buddy I could use some help...Would you mind giving me...will one of you f***s help me already?!"

Isn't that a good thing? Most DNC and PLD and SAM/DNC and (me on on BLU/NIN) i see tend to NOT want help, no?

In other news, dragged my way to 67 last night in a painful IMP party. Now i discovered to never accept an imp party again. Firstly ecphoria ring is total ***, since you cant use abilities for like 10 seconds after using the **** thing! And 2nd, GRRRRRRRRRRRRR.

So shortly after finishing my exp ring i had them replace me with a backline healer to help the poor RDM that was running out of MP every fight.

I think they need to rethink imp amnesia. When it comes to a job like DNC, it makes us 100% useless about 75% of the time. I don't know about anyone else but its quite the opposite of fun for me, when i am absolutely sealed from using any of my job for most of the time in those parties.

Yes and no. While BF + DE gives DNC some decent damage potential it still takes a LOOOOOONG time to kill anything. That being said the longer you are the only person engaged with a single mob the more time there is for another mob (though it's usually MOBS that find you in these instances) that someone couldn't tank to come up and smack you in the back of the head. While you could take your playmate somewhere out of the way it could be really hard to get a raise if things go horribly awry. When there are other people with you you have that extra buffer so any links may aggro them or if they suddenly take off you know it's time to go too :P So, while there are benefits there are definite risks. Personally, I prefer the safety of the herd...though one thing I will do since I can is solo any single links that come up. Between Utsusemi and Fan Dance I can easily hold a link long enough for the herd to finish the original mob.

Awesome I'm jealous. Last night i buckled down while LFG and grinded out 12k exp in campaign. So Halfway to sweet 68 and the cobra gear. "Costume change, Fabulouuuus"! Then my next "Look forward to" levels are 70 (Dual Behemoth+1), 72 (Dusk and Pbody/head), and of course 75 (omgmeritsnaow).

Each of those being at least 40k apart...

The grind, i grow tired of her.

Today a good friend of mine helped me get a Joyeuse! ^^ It's one of those things that I know won't make or break a DNC really (especially with the addition of Saber Dance), but I like the idea of having options and toys to play around with. :) Skilling up sword has been a breeze now. ^^ Can't wait to try this thing on some smaller solo-stuff and such~

Roughly 20k/hr sounds like every standard merit party to me ;)

In other news, got my fabulous costume change at 68 last night (Cobra-bulousss!), and loving the 10-11 TP per hit instead of my old 9. Now i can use a step after the first attack round out of the gate!

Grinded out another half level in campaign, still no invites. Probably gona ding 69 on campaign alone again... Really thought DNC would be a more popular invite than this, basically feels like I'm seeking on THF.

You might decide you prefer to campaign it out slowly after a few nights of being invited to too many imp parties... Once you get closer to 72-73, you should get invites for bird parties again. In the meantime, you could always build your own party. (That's what I do when I see I have 4-5 hours ahead of me)

Assault Jerkin.

With my new upgrades in WS gear (Assault Jerkin, Denali Gamashes, and Saber Dance), I was able to pop out a 1197 Dancing Edge at colibri camp with Minuet/Madrigal + sole sushi ^_^;


then the bird stole my food. :(

Ding 70 last night! :P

As people may recall from my "Main Heal" thread, i've had really terrible parties since lvl 60. Last night though, i got a great great party! PLD and THF were holding hate like champs, DDs were doing their thing, and i was left with enough spare TP to use Wild Flourish for the opening TA. I hadnt used WF in any party so far because i always needed RF desprately in those crap parties.

At one point our RDM had to afk and we just kept killing while my TP lasted us 6 mobs.

I took hate a grand total of once in 3 hours. Super koodos to Wildz(PLD) and Lokling(THF) on that. Also the DRG took hate maybe 2 times only. All in all, 3+hours, 30+k exp, lvl 70! ~(:3)

Waltz4 and dual Behemoth+1 will keep me entertained in campaign for a while :P

Omg i have an actual accomplishment this time!

Thanks to some campaign agro i decided to stand up to, I found out that i can tank a whole yagudo (BRD and BLM and MNK so far) all alone! Curing Waltz 4 is awesome! By the time i hit the red, i have enough TP for full health again! I even got ballsy enough to tank a NM, sharing hate with the NPCs and i lived the whole way!

The tanking is exhilirating, always thinking "osh*t osh*t osh*t osh*t" and yet surviving yag after yag.

After the first battle i got 4000 exp, 4000 on one tag!!! at lvl 70 no less!

I now am falling in love with DNC.

This just in, NIN yagudo couldnt kill me either, with 2 other ones ranged attacking me! :3

Even though I have the money for an azoth right now, I'm not too impressed with it over behemoth+1's. The minor stat difference doesn't sell me on the pricetag, maybe im missing something. The only thing about it i find interesting is it's the only harpe for DNC that i know of.

I think i'll be sticking with my BK+1 forever since they seem extremely decent compared to everything else i see to 75.

And yeah it's that refreshed excitement that's hit me again. It's like when you first get Curing Waltz and it's so powerful, same feeling but at 70 which i guess is gona last even at 75 since i won't get that much more HP to cure. I did 15k in campaign last night, half the way to 75! And i didnt even have to do it all night like i usually did to squeeze out 10k a night. I'm gona be hardcore into campaign again just like when i found out i could tank them on BLU75 in the early days.
