66-67 over the weekend.

upped Parry from 200-201 =-=/ (me club went from 200-213 while skill up same time lolz;;)

Bought Wivre shield over the weekend. enmity+23 now. I dont think price on my server going down any further atm, so happy with the purchase. Will prolly stick with this to the end =)

Party at bibiki bay! Partied here like it was 2004. Nice trip down memory lane. I gotta say Dhalmel at 66 hurts, had to go back to turtling (aka full AF, jelly ring, the works). Still, did try to spike turtle during ws.

First time partying at Caed Mire as pld at 67. Rest of pt was 64-65 lol. (I guess they really couldnt find a tank their lvl, since I was last member invited.) All I can say is, ****, those imps... are ... really ... annoying. >.<

On the other hand, those mucous undead blob aka jnun were nice. holy circle & undead killer ftw. I'm sure the novelty of the mire on my pld will soon fade though lol.

To put this bluntly. Don't. When you hit 73(I think) you should switch to the Koenig Shield. The Enmity from it combined with the Defense make it to the top of the short list for endgame use.

Oh really? Read the Wivre post below and seemed like everyone was on board with this shield. vit and def on koenig > enmity on wivre? So, Wivre for kiting, koenig for everything else?

My first limbus run. 1 RDM, 1 BRD, 1 PLD, 2 NINs at the core of our 12-man group, doing NW apollyon(I think that was it) We were able to clear all floors on time, this was pretty fun for our first run. They hadn't previously been able to do the clear without many deaths. I don't think we have a WHM with sea access yet, but I'd like to think we did pretty good for me tanking most of the bosses 70% of their HP's...as /war. Granted, with the 2hr recharge things it made things alot easier hehe.

I kept losing hate mainly due to the fact that I was bleeding it too much by the end of the fight (and the rdm has enm+merits for his nin). But by far, a ton of fun. We plan to let me go /nin next time and see how it goes. I'm afraid of doing it though as I have no haste gear. =(

You cleared all of NW (3 kings floor, with Undead blob, Ram, Turtle, Fafnidhogg, King Behemoth) w/ 12? Assuming you skipped the Wyrm and Turtle? that would be quite an accomplishment if you cleared all of the boses as well! /war to boot! That dragon hits harder then Tiamat :(

I guess I could agree with situationally using Wivre to kite but the low Defense on it scares me off a bit. Add on top of that the fact there are really only a handful of things that actually need kited, and you are kind of just taking up an inventory slot with it.

I can only think of Kirin(Non-TP burns) and King Behemoth that are kited religiously. I'm sure I'm missing some but those are the only ones that stnad out to me.

Jailer of Faith / Fortitude / Temperance are typically kited, though not always need, Ix'Mnk and Ix'Drk depending on how many people go, are kited as well.

Personally I think the Wivre Shield is meh for a PLD/WAR, but I think for PLD/NIN endgame tanking it's a great piece. It's not like the block rate will change between shields, and the damage taken per hit isn't as noticable since your using Shadows to absorb more damage than your shield.

while my ultimate objective on my pld is to fill the kiting pld need of my LS (just need homama hands for last haste slot, shield+ slots almost done, enmity slots left), I would not have said wivre 75 & beyond if it was a size 4 shield.

(nor would i have invested in it in first place for that matter. Would have saved for koenig)

we didn't skip the wyrm or the turtle- we almost skipped the turtle, we should have; because thats the one we ran out of MP on and the whole blm line (3) went down. hehe. >_> since you can refresh 2hrs every level we made good use of it strategically; I guess. We..I'm not sure if we slept the wyrm, but at 30% hp the leader asked the melee to stop for about 3 minutes so the mages could rest MP without wing hitting us. Then Blm's opened up with the melee to finish it off.

On a side note: Rdm sub started(22), sam sub almost finished(30). Two long past overdue subs for PLD. Finally mustering the energy and gear required is an accomplishment in my book. After a full year at end-game and no activities under 75; heheh.

Had to post this. Last night we did a PLD burn party. Set up was PLD PLD PLD PLD BRD WHM.

We decided to go to deco camp in sky so as to not have to compete for pulls mainly. And maybe so people wont keep stopping and staring at us...

So anyways 3 plds subbed nin and I subbed war since I dont have a multi hit sword and wanted to use berserk anyways for fun. Simply put this was the most fun i've had on PLD probably ever. We got about 10k an hour but would have done soo much more if we all hadn't been so rusty with sky xp camps. Our biggest problem was running out of mobs and having to stop and move to the next section. Now I remember way back when you used to be able to chain really high here but for the life of me couldn't remember how we used to pull things and keep the chain up. We semed to cap out on about chain 13 before mobs ran out on us.

I'm hoping this becomes a regular once a week thing but if not it was hella fun while it lasted.
