Sounds like fun Autumn, setting up some people for SATA seems to be like performing heart surgery, they just don't get it.
As for me, I'm being slack, I haven't been posting what I have done "today", but days after.. Shame on me!
Anyway, last saturday I went to hunt the coffer key for my level 54 Ninja Kyahan, In Sea Serpent Grotto. I went as me 53NIN with Vadne and Toyomoyo (53 WHM, 59RDM). Now, we got to our spot and slayed Sahagins for what felt like ages without a drop, maybe 3-4 hours, can't remember >.<. Luckily, a level 75 Monk (Yassen, great guy and japanese player) was farming in the area, camping an NM, so he killed Sahagins for us. Finally, Lavi, a friend of ours, comes as his 62 THF, and we venture deeper in.
Now, getting to see the SC of Asuran Fists --> SATA+ Dancing Edge, made me want to fight stuff for longer, before the key dropped. But in about, 30-40 minutes of clearing the zone, the key drops, and I'm a happy bunny.
So, me and Lavi head back to Norg, change our subs to WHM for sneak, and return to the coffer spawn points. Now, we wait a bit, and set out.. and there it is, the coffer! No bearing in mind, there was no one around to compete, I still rush to open it, receiving my Ninja Kyahan
I get swarmed on by four sahagins, a crab and a blubber eyes as opening the chest removes my sneak, and I go down too quickly to even use Mijin Gakure. De-levelling to 52
Lavi says he will raise me, and starts to clear the area, two Sahagins link on him, and he's down to 7 HP, before he sleeps the shagin with sleep bolts, and Divine Seal- Cure III's himself, before continuing to pummel the sahagin to sleep. After finally finishing, he raises me. I Mijin Gakure back to Norg, before looking at my status and realising I re-levelled at the raise
I was very Happy.
Recently, I static partied on thursday, got 11.5k exp in 3 hours, so I'm 1.5k tnl, 54, and I can wear my Kyahan!
Ok, i'm done, cheers!
