Diggidyding. 1 » 17! (one weekend).

Played around with /WHM and /BLU. I like the stat bonuses from /BLU, but having Dia helped on some EM+/T+ so I think I'll stay /WHM until I can go /NIN.

Carpenters Landing until 20 I think.

17 » 19 at Carpenters Landing. Beautifully easy!

one death at the end, due to my weariness, so I called it a night and /logged.

To 20 and beyond tonight! (may go to Buru for a change of scenery, plus I have an affinity to Dhalmels since the first time they ate my Taru).

After 4 years of FFXI, watching all sorts of our friends hit that big old 75, last night My wife and I finally got that Big Ding. LVL 75. On the same mob. It was a wonderful ride to the top, now to see what's lurking about up here to kill.


Oh and we broke the latent on our pick of trials too.

Ding my best day of BST'ing ever! I've had so much fun!

Started the day farming spider webs and was lucky enough to clock Amemet on widescan, one familiared VT tiger later, 3 skins!

After one of the best web drop rates I've ever had (24 webs total ^^) , I decided to return home to unload my inventory. Returning to the Outpost in altepa I clocked Dunewidow on widescan, killed and got drop!

Decided as I'd had a great day I'd try to push my luck and go camp Ose, I checked Widescan and low and behold Lord or Onzozo was up! Pulled him to the Ose area and managed to solo him in an extremely fun fight! No drop but fight was so fun I didnt care

30 mins later Ose pops! No drop this time but after the day I've had I cant complain. 4 Nms in a day and some nice drops, I dont think I'm gonna experience this kind of luck again, but it was great whilst it lasted, and it would never have happened without BST ^^

I LOVE WIDESCAN!! BST SUXX!

Having a 10 Days break from work does wonders for me and my partners BST.

We had a wonderful 5 Days shopping trip to Thailand and still have 5 Days to work on our BST Duo after our trip.

We got BST from 27 to 40 within this period. ^^

Having Leave makes leveling a breeze.

/dance1, /dance2, /dance3 and /dance4 that comes with the last patch brings comic relief when we are celebrating with our Pets when we ding (sometimes after long hours of grinding)!

Alas, vacation is over and we're back at work. Fast leveling is out of question again. It's once again back to the rountine of Endgame with only 2-3 Days of EXPing per week... T_T

Well... at least we take heart from the fact that Leave and /dance will always be with us, regardless of how tough or slow the upcoming levels will be. :D

Just scanning the posts I see you did some kick **** leveling, but dang your quote makes me laugh cuz I use "Leave" so much less now. Pre patch it was mandatory to use "Leave" to save 30% xp hit, then you "Rampage" and your mob is still alive(Oh Crap!) where is my old pet? oh no it dissappeared... "Call Beast" and CC appears Yay! but its too late your mob continues to beat you to a pulp and you bite the dirt. While now... "Leave" is used not so much, primarily when its convenient :D

Congrats on 75~

Yes I have to agree that old-timers like yourself have it tougher with the EXP Penalty before this recent patch. T_T

-----

Here are some uses we have for Leave:

#1
When all mobs in the area checked T and above, we charmed T mobs, run a distance and use Leave, praying hard repop will be DC-EM so we can Charm as Pets.

#2
If there are a number of potential Pets about, with Leave, we do not have to Heel -> Stay to kill our Pets towards the end of a fight. Neither do we have to wait for Charm to wear. We can now just Leave our surviving Pets and Charm new ones.

#3
If there are not many potential Pets about, we will attempt to rest our surviving Pets to full HP. Using Stay to regain our Pet's HP is sometimes too slow. We run back to the area we got our current Pet from and use Leave. Pet's HP goes up very rapidly. When Pet's HP is full, we Charm and re-use the Pet.

#4
Whenever we have been running around with our EM Pets for a couple of minutes or more, we will use Leave and Charm to reset the Charm Duration of our Pets before starting a fight. We are quite wary of Pets becoming uncharmed halfway in fights, especially when we are targeting VT~IT range mobs.

#5
When we get links or aggro, we will Leave our current Pets and attempt to Charm the links or aggro mobs.

-----

#1~#5 is really making our post-35 leveling a whole different (and easier) kind of experience.

Beastmaster 37-42.
I have a week off and am trying to get 2 levels in BST a day.
Unfortunately, I think that's not really possible for me.
I'll setle for one level a day for now.

I've been trying to go around different places to level, but it seems I
always gravitate back to Eastern Altepa Desert after failing a few times.

When I hit level 40 I deleveled once, and when I hit 41 I deleved twice.
It always seems like Mobs get some sort of job trait when BST is 10% to
their next level, or 10% into their next level that makes them harder.

I dinged 52 about 3 times on saturday, and then did a couple of ENM's to make sure I didn't die anymore (I swear the mob levels like shift in CN. At one point I would go through, and everything would be Dec or EM, with a few T. Then a short time later it seemed like everything was T with just a few EM). Dinged 53 last night. 53 seems like it will be a good level in CN.

And to cap it off, we're also the only job that actualy PAYS for our pet.

I was going to try for 50 last night but got fed up with my linking too much
so I walked out of Onzozo and logged for the night.

I had tried getting a Subligar for my gaudy harness and died a few times (was
on NIN at the time) so my patience was running low.

Didn't get my BST subligar, but I did get a THF subligar.
I'll see about getting to 50 tonight or tommorrow. Then I'm gonna grind out
some AF quests.
