69 BRD and snagged a Wind Torque. Torn between farming an Opo-Opo Crown or just burning to 75 since I don't think I'd wear the crown much at that point.

You sure you want to know? 'Respected' players are likely to call you gimp & ask why you wear such retarded gear for a Relic Bard. Yes, some people still are still in 2004 when macros weren't cool, MENU ONRY

8/8 Singing & Wind
Chanters
Gjallarhorn
Demon Helm +1 (Marduk's would be +1 better)
Wind Torque
Singing Earring
Musical Earring
Minstrel's Coat
Choral Cuffs +1
Neried X2
Jester's +1 >.> (grrrrrrrRRRRRRR Astute Cape).
Desert Rope
Choral Cannions +1
Sheikh Crackows

554 with that, 559 once I get Astute, & I don't need +1 more skill for ~350K or whatever Marduk's Tiara costs. I'd need proof of a skill tier at 560 for that.

Worth saying that the whole small % increase of March is more for fun than practical outside of bard-swap 2H burns on HNM additionally with geared up Rune Chopper DRKs. Adding ~2% to double march without soul voice won't change most things like Utsusemi: Ni recast. If you use the tools available to swap more than just 5 pieces of gear at a time, then no reason not to use the 'best of' gear loadouts for each song/spell.

It's shocking the amount of comments I get from people thrashing on me for not having enough CHR, being lolGalka & everything else.... I like to laugh tho. "Dude, you only have like 90 total CHR, you're gonna be mad resists."

Rather long time lurker and have just started playing again a few months ago because I finally have time and funds. After leveling warrior to forty-one I decided to level white mage, then bard. Now at fifty hours of play I finally reached another milestone and my latest accomplishment: Beating the crap out of an old man.

Cuki 1 Maat 0

...


O.K. Make that 1/1. Dragon Kick -> Asuran Fist hurts.

However on this attempt I am exceedingly happy do to the fact that I broke Seraph's record for Shattering Stars (BRD) at five minutes, twenty-seven seconds.

Setup:

Rune Blade
Elegant Shield
(Horn +1, Siren Flute, Ebony Harp +1, Oliphant)
Blink Band -> then Gold Hairpin
Chivalrous Chain (Borrowed from an LS mate of mine by the name of Vayne.)
Scorpion Harness (Yay! Bought it cheap for 170k instead of 200k+)
Insomnia Earring
Coral Earring
Carapace Gauntlets
Courage Rings (Sadly.)
Amemet Mantle
Gleeman's Belt (Purely awesome belt.)
Custom Slacks
Choral Slippers

Food: Yagudo Drink, Persikos au Lait, Squid Sushi

Songs: Double Paeon (Though looking back double Minuet might have been much more fun.), Foe Requiem VI, Carnage Elegy.


Over all it was very easy just spamming hi-potions and not falling into yellow. Fast Blade and Rune Blade make it a piece of cake. He seemed to waste a lot of time singing so I thought it better to simply just reapply Requiem/Elegy before Soul Voice wore instead of wasting time rebuffing. On a side note I wonder how Rune Blade with the latent effect would fair against Joyeuse in terms of over-all damage...

Hit 56 and put on my Choral cannions :D Finally sold the ceremonial hose I'd been wearing. (BRD and BST: the only jobs where a well-made wedding dress is decent armor.)

I'm eyeing random pieces of BRD in my dynamis shell, but I'm in a steep competition for the BLM hat from Xarc and the points margin is far too narrow to risk getting even a single piece. (Like, I have 54 points and the guy behind me has 50. If we both attend a Dynamis run, but I lot bard, he will earn two points for not lotting anything, and I will earn one for lotting. I will be at 55 and he wil be at 52. Then the bard relic will cost me 3 points, and we'll be even, giving me only a 50% chance at the hat instead of the guarantee. Maybe when my bard hits 70 I'll risk it. Or, maybe the stupid hat will DROP and I can be done with BLM relic already . . . . )

Oh yes, especially on Hume F <3

I already have all I need from sky so I thought I'd spend my 500 points or so on some nice looking gear.. I haven't taken it off yet though O_o;
