Done! hehe

BTW, tried out a couple of farming spots, made about 100k in about 2 hours of work. Not too bad if it wasn't for the damned RMT I found at the 2nd farming spot I tried.

ARGH! Time for the STFU to step up and ban stick those MFers!

Well, I did that math a long time ago... so they aren't accurate anymore. I had no idea that they had changed so much. I havn't played in a couple months, and I stopped paying attention like 8 months ago, because I stopped caring about Guttler until a get 1 or 2 more jobs lvl'd.
anyway, most of the other calculations are still accurate as far as I know.

except for the T. Shells O,o they were 8-9k when I was on...

I put some of the gil I had farmed to good use.

I found someone selling a couple of T. Whiteshells for 9k each and I snapped 'em right up.

Total for 1st upgrade now 180/300

Also.....

I may have found a Dynamis LS that will let me sponsor runs! Still working on details, but more to come!

Not a very productive weekend, to say the least. **** undercutters!

But I was able to nab 20 more T. Whiteshells, and I traded those in for L. Jadeshell #2.

I am now 200/300 towards the first upgrade....and I'm quickly realizing this is gonna take a REALLY long time unless I'm able to find a way to sponsor some dynamis runs.

At the current rate of roughly 10 coins per day (200 since Jan 7, 21 days but we'll call it 20) it'll take about 4 years 320 days. You have plenty of time to look for sponsorship opportunities. >_>

OR.....I could form a new Dynamis LS for LoTB members....ZING! lol

Seriously, I found out that there are TWO more LoTB members interested in upgrading Guttlers (4 total now) so it might be wise to form up a new Dynamis LS for LoTB members, with some outside recruitment.

It's just an idea though, but would be cool if it goes through.

I see you have gotten some Brigand's Charts. What about Pirate Charts for mercurial kris? I am sure that goes a for a few mil. Marlin are going for 3k on your ah. How many marlin can you catch in a day before fatique? Also do you use the baits you get from Pirate's Chart fight?

I currently have a Pirate's Chart in my inventory, but I keep it there because I'm after Brigand's Charts. I'm 0/15 on getting the Penguin Ring from the lil' mini-event and I won't use the Pirate's Chart until I get that ring.

Well, after speaking to the LoTB members....we're going through with it!

LoTB has now formed a Dynamis LS! "BeastsGoneWild"

(btw, Sig updated)

Had a long chat with the LoTB membership asking various questions regarding schedules, member sponsorships, LS bank, and recruitment. Everyone was in support of forming the new linkshell, and recruiting outside "normies" to build membership on top of the already existing LoTB membership who have Dynamis access.

Then not even an hour later.....

I contacted a friend of mine from an endgame LS called "AngelsOfApocalypse", and told him what was going on. He comes out and tells me that AoA had been considering merging with another Dynamis shell to grow and get better. They have currently about 30 members that do Dynamis in their shell. So add the LoTB membership on top of that and we're pushing close to 50. We still have to work out the kinks, but the one guy I had spoken to (who is a sackholder for AoA and a fellow BST) seemed STOKED about the idea of joining up with "BeastsGoneWild".

Now, come to find out there are FIVE people in LoTB upgrading stuff. Four are upgrading Guttlers, and 1 is upgrading a lolGungnirDRG on top of the two AoA members who are upgrading weapons as well (I think one was a Mandau and the other is an Excalibur) so there will be no shortage of people sponsoring runs for the next foreseeable future.

Man if this gets off the ground, this is gonna ROCK! BTW, BSTs are encouraged to come and show off their 1337 BST skill0rz. lol

BAH!!!! You got it in before I could *ninja edit* the post. **** filters. I mean come on what's wrong with typing "lol" and "DRG" together? That doesn't mean "I'm a moron".

Whoever set that up must have been a DRG and must be shot dead.

Ok I'm over it. And Taterz, I went from 19 BLM to 60+ BLM pretty quickly. But once I got to 65 I took my sweet time getting to 75. Just like when I got my BLM to 75, I am in NO RUSH to get things done. I play FFXI for fun, not to make my e-peen bigger asap.

Nah, seriously Shiva sounds expensive as for Currency. My dynamis shell lets Currency autosort, and if you're not after relic armour, you're allowed to castlots battle on 100pieces.

At least on Hades Whiteshells are 7k, Bynes are 5-6kish, Bronzepieces are 7k.
L.JShell are like 800k, 100Byne are like 500-600k, Silverpiece i've had trouble getting rid of for over 600-700k.

You could always jump to another server to buy all your currency :3 lolz

Thanks for the invite, but really no need. IF BeastsGoneWild gets off the ground and going, I'll be sponsoring runs all the way to my Guttler....and all I have to do is farm 1M gil. CAKE!

BTW, when I sponsor a run, in the case of multiple 100cc coins dropping I may keep those and sell some of the 1cc coins to build up funding for the next time I sponsor a run, which would help minimize the time I need to farm up gil.

Another thing I've thought of is dual-sponsorship. 2 sponsors, 500k each, split currency drops down the middle. Would help save cash.

Ok then, consider this. Running a dynamis ls or even sponsoring runs is counterproductive at your present stage of upgrade if your goal is to get guttler.

Now there are a huge number of reasons to do dynamis for fun, but if you are serious about getting guttler you have to be hard nosed about it or it just wont happen.

I can tell you from experience that a dynamis run will suck 4 or more hours of your game time for each run. I have gone to at least 50-60 runs and I have a pretty good feel for drops. Sometimes you will not get any 100 drops at all. This compunded by the fact that bastok coin and often windy coins are worth way less than sandy coins.

The economics are thus. 1 million gil entry plus 4 or more hours of time will sometimes net you a couple hundred bastok or windy coins if you do those starter cities. So basically you just wasted 4 hours when you could have been fishing, crafting, mining, harvesting etc.

The fact is, that if you are really dedicated to getting guttler, or really any relic, and you are doing the work yourself, doing dynamis before you have the currency to upgrade to ogre killer is just counterproductive because it is a very ineffecient way to get currency.

That's about the extent of my attention span- and that's another thing I've never understood! There's this magazine for people with ADD but it's more than 3 pages long. Who's gonna get that far?

Siv, have you asked anyone about KS99 runs? If you could get a speed belt drop from sponsoring a 99 that would be a massive chunk of change towards completing the project. I know some of my BSU guys have done KS99 recently... I'm sure Yoshime would be more than happy to run through a strategy with you. The key is communication! Jokes aside, you should look into it if you have an excess of seals or friends.
