I'm still try to do the old song and dance to get my LS to help me with an Almace
Meh..You have THF. Just get someone to come /WHM with minikin atma and you can solo any bri NM in La theine. I did half my popsets with me on NIN and dual boxing my BRD. No help required. Bri was pretty relaxing and it gave me something to do every morning. Not only that, almost every pop gave me two helms. Out of all my 50 helms I only got one helm three times. Anyway if it's bri you're worried about, he's the least of your worry's.
Sobek is a completely different monster though. Gukumatz is probably the most camped mob in the game. Tonight there was 11 NIN's in the zone out of 40 people, and a constant 5-15 people camping Guku (Yes, at one point I was targeting more invisible players than I was mobs). I managed to get the claim three times in about 7 hours. I would've been done a lot sooner but my 10/13 red proc's isn't good enough I guess. D: I'm 34/50 Skins right now, but I still feel this is going to take a long time. Guku is just really hard to claim. I'm 6/16 on seeing two skin's with Sobek, and we've had a THF every time. I get more help than I deserve with Sobek, but I still feel so far off from it.
I actually am keeping a list of every NIN I see in the zone more than 4 nights in a row claim spamming Gukumatz, and my list is 19 people long.
Yeah...It's really really horrible. I wanted to go for Almace for my RDM, but i'm not putting myself through this ever again.
