The world just doesn't want me to have these damn things. The price on Woodsman Ring's are steadily going up by at least 10k a day. They're at 140k on Asura right now, when I started farming for them, they were 100k. As soon as I acquired 100k, they went up to 110k. So I went and farmed up 10k, they went up to 120k.

It's like I'm being stalked. >_>

Encourage me to keep trying!

Either that or tell me about a time where there was an item you wanted but it was always just barely out of reach.

Why do I have the mental image of a Paladin collapsing in front of the AH and crying "WOE IS ME!"?

While you wait, you can level RDM to 40 and solo the ENM for them (the bomb one) :) Free is better than gilz... and /RDM is for ballista PLD anyways right?

WOE IS ME!

Also, RDM costs money and is therefore counter-productive.

Woodsman's hit 150 today. ; ;

Dont you need scales to get to the BCNM area? How do you get them solo? I tried once as bst and barely solo'd one before a mischarm screwed me over on the second. What job do you use to kill the drakes?

You only need one scale per run if you go through the 50-cap zone. The scales are Ex, so you can farm up a bunch of them at once and stock pile for future runs. As for soloing the drakes, I guess I fail in that department because I don't know. Usually I duo them as THF and WHM in the 50-cap zone without much incident.

RDM isn't that expensive to level, honestly. You could get by with some pretty cheap gear til level 40, especially if you get in some level sync parties or use fields of valor. Take the budget route and don't use HQs, which wouldn't help you considerably anyways at those levels. It was just a suggestion though. Hey, once you get your woodsmans, you could be selling them at the ever rising prices later on :)

I've also watched RDM/NINs solo Wyverns in the 50 cap area. Bind/sleep and Nukes are your friend. He was able to rest his mp quite easily, too, since he bound more than he slept. Gravity would help a lot as well.

I soloed scales on NIN/THF for a few weeks to do the ENM in the area for a couple of weekends straight attempting for my Assault Breastplate, but did it in the 40 cap area. 40 cap nin is so brokenly powerful. o.o (and took MNK to the ENM fight itself)

NIN40 isn't that hard to get, it's just 3 levels beyond what you need for subjob anyway. Also, it's fun to solo those 3 levels to learn how to cast shadows to save your life...just be sure you buy ALL of the elemental spells at 40, because spinning the elemental wheel is what makes nin broken at 40 with both utsu spells.

I actually do have a tale of Shiniez Lust and escalating price.

The object of my affection? Organics.

(Ridicule me for my overpriced toy later. There's very little buyable left that I actually want for PLD)

I was on Asura at the time, and the going price was 800k. I had about 500k in the bank, and seals and Imperial Standing. I ground and farmed, not seeming to get any lucky breaks on BCNM drops, but through pure force of will I dragged myself up to 700k.

I checked the price. Someone was selling in Rolanmart for 900k.

I went back to grinding, and got a lucky Khroma Ore drop. There were expenses, of course, but that got me up to 900k after all was said and told.

I went back to Rolanmart. The same guy had raised his price to 1,000,000.

Crap. Back to grinding. No more decent drops, I resorted to straight farming, and eventually scraped together 1,100,000. Hah! There, I anticipated!

Apparently, the Organics not selling from his bazaar for three weeks was an indication of high demand. The price was now 1.2 mil.

ARRRRGGGGHHHH!!

There was a happy ending, though. I shouted in Whitegate, and managed to get one for 900k. Yay!

Got my first ring yesterday. Cost me a full 140k. The most I've ever spent on a single item. x.x

Gratz. Wait'll you buy your first multi-million item.

I remember when I bought my terra and apollo staffs for 5 million each during inflation. Now I'm not sure anymore what my most expensive gear piece is since I have several things I bought, and the prices have changed significantly since I got them.

My hades +1, my cerberus mantle, my assault breastplate, and my terror shield for all my main gears I can think of for highest gil value unless I'm forgetting something. I got my hades +1 for 2.5 mill, and that was almost a year ago. Got cerb mantle for 2.5 mill, now its like 1.6 mill. Terror shield for 3 mill since the bitch never drops from the NM, and its like 1.8 now, and my assault breastplate for 2 mill.

edit: OH RIGHT, my manteel. How could I have forgotten that. Ok, My manteel wins at 5 mill.

On BST try 2-houring a Fly and pounding on wyverns instead of using multiple pets. Less dangerous and flies eat wyverns for breakfast.
