Yeah . . . well, maybe until June. Legend has it that there won't be a level cap raise in the next update, so maybe no more trials.
Also, some day I may go with Shadow Gorget/belt for inventory reasons, but the other job I go out on a lot is WAR and Aqua Gorget/belt cover Raging Rush. My plan for Panktokrator is basically to TH it and brew it... probably AoE'ly so I can hit the T3 VNM and Apedemak with the same brew.
Conflux 7 Strategy:
1) Pop Apedemak on WAR, Blue him, TH him, have someone tank him.
2) Thief comes with me and pop Panktokrator. Tanks it while feeding a minimum of TP. Don't even try to proc Blue.
3) I go pull the T3 VNM.
4) When I get to camp, everyone pulls the monsters on top of each other and I pop a brew with dagger, Aeolian Edging them all to death.
After that I can go engage Conflux 7 or something to try and preserve my brew if we want to kill another Apedemak or Panktokrator or something, but basically this gives me one shot at three NMs with one brew, two with TH and one with Blue. All three NMs are pains in the ass, so I'm willing to toss a brew in there just to avoid the pain. I want the 100% drop off the T3 and Apademak, the blue drop off Apademak, and the TH-dependent drop off Panktokrator, so this is convenient. I bet I could do it with WHM, PLD, BLM, THF, WAR.
Torero Torque is a priority for at least two people in the group I go with, so I bet we end up doing this at least twice.
