Finally out of Qufim on my taru bard.

Dinged 23, 24, 25, 26

Tried out pulling some mandies. Was doing good except the vokers in my party were slow and I ended up dying after pulling from half way across the zone. So I let the thief pull and he promptly died from a gobby.

Time to farm some gil for Monster Signa.

Got M.Silverpiece drop from Dynamis-Qufim (and Sliver!) ^^

Promptly sold it and bought an Apollo's Staff! :D
Still lacking Terra's, but I couldn't afford both. I'll get it eventually.
(Also got some nice toys for my 48Thf to ding into, Corsair's Knife and Vclaw (signed SH prs :o) so a good day!)

Gonna grab me a chanter's staff for buffs too.

Some bad things tho, I had a random urge to plat rng and dumped my 3 spare merits into Flashy Shot D: sure it's fun, but it should have really gone into Singing/Wind D: Oh, and a quick 0/3 on Enlili's Brais :x

Ding 70.

Now it's time to fight Maat. I have all my potions and items, all I really need to do is finish skilling up sword. It's 173 right now.

Maat down!

Hit 71, and put on my first piece of relic. That's a nice feeling.

Then at 72 I get a total outfit overhaul -- full yigit go go!

Although, if I'm /NIN, I'll probably swap back in relic feet since, well, no need for the refresh with no MP and they're better shoes.

Relic feet..? They're pretty useless actually. Sha'ir feet are better, even /NIN, and that's saying something because I would never recommend sha'ir feet. :P

Hmmm, yes, but relic feet were free, and Sha'ir are 240K on my server. Smiley: laugh

Well, maybe I'll put the 200K from the Mog Bonanza I just won to good use :P

Why wouldn't your recomend Sha'ir feet? They're the best Feet you can buy off the AH.

Anyway, a small accomplishment, Soloed a T elemental in sky Brd/Nin and got 10 photos :D
30 minute fight with exatly 100 shihei used, 4-6dmg hits and 50-70 Eviscerations ftw XD

Only the fast cast, and I am not sure it's enough to justify them by themselves.

Fast Cast +1 is still better than String Skill +3 in majority of situations. How often do you even use harp?

My preference: Sha'ir Crackows/Rostrum Pumps > Goliard Clogs


I will admit, when I first got my bard slippers (my first piece of relic) I was like zomg, lookie! I haz relic, I am uber! then I came to realize what a piece of crap they are.

If it wasn't for the fact I need them to put my relic set into storage, I'd have tossed them already.


And to make this worthy of posting in this thread to stay on topic:

Ding 31 (a while ago)...

Total bard levels 75+31+10 weeee!

Yeah, Artifact/Relic BRD boots are lackluster all together. I only used my AF boots once, during the Maat fight.

I currently use the Sha'ir boots and probably will for a long time.

I'm using Goliard Clogs for debuffing, and Rostrums for buffing. If I ever get Oracle's Pigaches in this lifetime that'll change, but for now it works.

Relic feet are for a string build or if you're too poor to bother with anything else. :x Other than that, they're pretty much crappy.

Not to crush your victory (trust me I went thru this as well, so disappointing), but...aside from being free, HS is a terrible dagger to melee with.

Most other higher level daggers will easily match or outparse HS and any well geared THF will tell you to sell it and use the gil to buy a better one.

I sold mine, but you might as well play with yours for a while before tossing it - at the very least its fun to see some **** 5xCrit Eviserations. I just wish it was better...

For a bard who doesn't really melee, nothing really wrong with just having Heart Snatcher.

For Thief who is expected to produce high numbers, then yes, it is an loldagger. But no sense in a bard laying down 2mil for a blau dolch when a heartsnatcher will kill things too.

I have both Heart Snatcher and Blau, and both 75 thief and bard, and I never use my heart snatcher. I had Heart Snatcher first and was unlocking it for my bard, just because it has a higher latent base damage then other daggers bard can use, but once I got my blau on Thief, I never touched it again.

Unless you're putting together some leet bard melee gear setup, no real reason to invest in a good quality dagger. To the extreme its like saying, I want a mandau for my bard instead of a gjallarhorn. Save your gil for something bardly :D

After a good, long wait...

Byakko Haidate = O

been fooling around with macros to pop haste/fast cast at the start of singing and putting all my skill/chr equip during the song. I am starting to have a decent BRD again after ignoring it for over a year to focus on THF and DRG :)

True - If your running around as a DD BRD, you can pretty much play however you want since the whole things is a bit 'lol' anyways.

But, I never said to drop 2 mil on a Blau either. Behemoth Knife +1 and Jambiya parse better than HS and (depending on server) is pretty cheep. If you were a THF, you could sell HS and buy Magnet Knife and still have some gil left over.

I wasn't trying to slam him on the post. I was informing him that I did the exact same thing (unlocked HS) before I got lol'ed by a few THFs in my LS. The BRD forums isn't an ideal place to look up info on decent melee builds, and it never dawned on me to look in the THF forums for answers. Whether he seriously wants to build a DD BRD build or not, doesn't change the fact that HS is a poor latent weapon (unlike the other latent weapons). I also didn't want him to be the suprise target of an 'lolHS' event like I was.

At the very least, he knows now.
