Windy Dragon (Giddeus) -- help!Follow

I go by the name Spaceboy, and have been trying to make rank 3 for months now. I'm a level 24 monk/war. Been doing emissary since level 8 or 9, but cannot find a party to defeat the black dragon.

Its not as though I haven't tried. I've been stopping in Windhurst every few levels to try to find a party, but it seems like Windhurst is all but abandoned. Nobody is around. Nobody is ever in Giddeus who can (or is willing) to help.

This has been so frustrating, that I actually stopped playing for a month hoping that maybe things would change -- but when I returned -- I found it is about the same.

Well, if you see me in Windy -- give me a tell if you're willing to help out. I'll take whatever help I can.

Also, what sort of party would I need -- at minimum -- to beat this mission? I assume I can't solo it. I might be able to scrounge up a few people to help -- but I don't know what I'll need.

I still need to get my rank 3, so I'd be up for it at some point. Schools starting up on Wednesday, so I won't be able to keep super late hours, but basically any time from 4pm->12pm EST would be good.

And of course if Kuroyuki is going, then of course I'll go. Just killed the Giddeus dragon again last night. I did a /sea all for your name, but you weren't on. I'm usually up for a dragon fight though.

I'll prolly be on once I get work out of the way, but it may be a little bit. There's a lvl 25 cap, right? If so, I need to nab some beetle armour off the AH, since I have brass scale.

I just want to say thanks to everyone who has volunteered help :) Hopefully we can work something out and maybe, one day when I'm of a higher lvl, I could help some of you guys (Altho by that point you prolly won't need any ^^)

Hey guys -- just an update. I beat the dragon last night with the help of some good guys. And we managed to take it with a lot of rage and no white mage. Just 4 of us.

I actually died during the battle (the life expectancy of a monk with lots of hate is not very long) -- but one of my party mates killed it. So the mission counted for me, luckily. Would have sucked otherwise.

I gotta give a thumbs up to Lur, Grimreap, Jynx, and Asuki(?) for helping out. After weeks (and months) of trying -- it feels good to be rank 3.

As for any of you other guys out there that need help -- I'm in Bastok at the moment but would be glad to help out if I'm nearby and you are going against him.

4 level 24's can beat him, if you use your two hours. A whm would be nice (I would have survived) but we rocked him pretty hard. We split up 2 & 2 against the seeker & the dragon. The two of us on the dragon died, but got him down to about 1 hit of dying so the other two killed the searcher and then finished him off.

Ideally, without a healer -- you can probably do it with 5 fighters. 3 on the dragon and 2 for the searcher.

It was a fun battle though. Now to find the keys...
