Smiley: clap Congrats! I know what you mean, I still get an adrenaline rush quite often when I fight Notorious Monsters, bad enough that my hands shake.

Congrads on your win.

Maat will be my first limit break fight. Been thinking about it a lot and I hope I don't choke when I finally get there.

Heh, nothing ever quite feels the same as your first time against Maat.
I went 1/5 on RDM Maat, so I went back when I was 75, had a ton of merits and better gear, and whooped his *** 4 times melee style Smiley: grin

I beat Maat finally today and am now level 71, yay.

Like the original poster, I found it very anxiety producing and it made me depressed for hours after logging out of the game each time I lost. I actually started planning to level another job for my limit break, from 35 to 70...

Some observations:

After you are beat in the fight, you still have the testimony in your inventory. If you go back to him he tells you that it's junk and you need another.

Ruby Quadav is really easy to bore to death. So, it was a big shock fighting Maat. He's much more difficult. I felt discouraged. But, once you are calm, Nuke/Sleep, wait until you can recast, then repeat. With convert and meds it's not that hard.

I only failed to sleep Ruby Quadav a few times at the start of the fight when she had buffs up. Even on light's day it was not a problem.

Each time, I cast blind and 2 or 3 of the quadavs ran after me. I zone and reenter immediately, and it's only Ruby Quadav standing there.

It was almost as easy to sleep Maat, on both Windsday and on Darksday. Maybe pluto's staff makes it easy.

My first fight went like this:

I entered the battle field and accidentally cast Convert as my first action... I was shaking and fumbled around failing to cast the right spells and was dead.

Second fight:

I tried running up to him with only stoneskin on, so he'd have fewer buffs. He immediately did asuran fists, followed by Thunder II and I was dead. It took less than a minute.

Third fight:

I forgot about the 10 minute time limit and tried to fight him by resting for a long time while he was asleep, and timed out.

Final fight:

I'm a tarutaru, all magic capped, except for Divine. The healing spells are cast with light staff equipped. Sleep with pluto's staff. Enfeebling with spider torque and ebony wand. Aero III with Auster's staff and elemental torque. All on macros with the corresponding spells.

I ate a cream puff and entered the battlefield in my underwear.

I thought it was good to reuse a thread. Concentrate knowledge so it is easier to access. I didn't know people have a problem with posting to old threads... Weird.

Anyway, speaking of necro things. I think RDM is a lot of fun to play. If that makes us "dead", as I've read recently, then I'm the living dead.
