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.
