Ok, I checked through the threads and didn't see any recent topic on this so please forgive me if it has been covered previously. Here goes...
I am looking to solo Carmine Dobsonfly solo on BLM to get myself a Voyager Sallet. Long story short, I am tired of coming up empty for a helm when going on runs. Especially, when on just about every run I have been on only 1 helm has dropped with 6 people trying to lot on it. Not great odds at all.
I have read up on the wiki strategy for the solo BLM method and it is pretty self explanatory. I specifically leveled my BLM to level 43 just so I could do this and I am ready to try. I need to get myself a scale and the time, and I will be ready to attempt it.
I just wanted to get a little feedback from the BLM community on this from others who have solo'd their sallet.
-How many deaths/delevels can I expect if I have to kill all ten NM copies for the helm to drop? Is 3k exp into level 43 enough to keep from dropping under 40?
-Is there a different/better strategy or set of spells I should use to make the solo go easier?
-Is their a thread already on this topic I missed that someone could point me to?
-Is there a certain vana day(s) that I should attempt this on that would make my spells more potent or make the mobs resist less?
-And just any general knowledge that the wiki strategy missed that I may need to know about.
An old lsmate used to brag that on his old server he killed all 10 copies on several occasions for friends as BLM and DIDN'T DIE ONE SINGLE TIME. He has since left our ls and I have not seen hide nor hare of him since then.
Obviously, if the strategy he used is possible, that would be the way to go. I just don't see how he did it unless he Thundaga >>> BioII >>> Sleepga >>> Bind the starting mob then zoned, or something to that effect then just repeated over an over.
Any input/tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading!
