So, completely editing this post to show all necessary info!

Scheduled for:

Sunday February 22nd 5:30pm GMT/12:30pm EST/9:30am PST

Setup is as follows:

PLD Lugaid -|
WHM Celestial |
WHM Tigerkralle |- Supertank Party
WHM Kaerwyn |
BRD Dazzles |
RDM Emilliana -|

DRG Rheia
DRG Ojisan

BLM Zephiris
RNG Elrik
SAM Genryu

Subject to slight ammendments here and there as necessary.

We also have Verrick, Pluelf, Toohotforu and Xiomar who have kindly offered to help if needed.

Pick your subs as you deem necessary.

Gather together in Sky on the day.

Let's have fun eh?

Ene's Strat:
Quote:
DM supertank strategy

Requirements:

1 supertank party
1 DD party
1 BLM party

Supertank party = PLD WHM WHM WHM RDM BRD, can substitute WHM for a RDM or COR.
DD party = someone with shadows who can pull and a healer.
BLM party = up to 5 BLMs in a pt and a RDM, fill up with DDs.


The supertanking method. We let one PLD sight aggro the AA's, and due to the weird hate mechanics, we can cure bomb him, and we won't grab hate. As long as supertank pt keeps PLD fresh and alive, the others can simple pull each AA one at a time until they are all dead.

Order in which to pull AA's off tank: EV, MT, GK, HM, TT. Pets go down fast.

What's brilliant about the strategy is...

a) TT stays inside the arena the whole time. No uber BLM spells raping our alliance.
b) Supertanking doesn't require uber gear.
c) If you can survive the EV you're doing great.
d) The more AA's you kill, the less MP you'll eventually have. But the less AA's the supertank has to take hits from.
e) No hate bouncing around, no kiting mess, no confusion.

It's pretty simple really. The DM layout is like this:

- Entry room
- Hallway
- Stairs
- Arena

You can buff outside btw, including TP and Shikikoyo, so use it.

1) DD/BLM parties stay in Entry room upon entering (cept puller, who goes with supertank), Supertank party goes to the TOP of the stairs.
2) Supertank puts on POWDER BOOTS (these are **** necessary, bok tried once w/o them, PLD got raped through triple penetration 5 times, including pets).
3) Supertank uses POWDER BOOTS, runs down, aggroes them, runs back up and stays at the top of the stairs. All AA cept TT will follow.
4) Supertank HAS to position himself so that he can shield block all AAs to minimize damage.
5) Puller pulls EV to Entry room, parties kill it (and try to stun its massive aoe damage and benediction)
6) Puller pulls MT, then GK, then HM, throw in some pets here and there... Once you kill EV, you've practically won.
7) Once all dead, run to the arena and just start smashing the (then) harmless TT. Win.

RULES

- DO NOT PERFORM ANY ACTION ON THE AA'S THAT ATTACK THE PLD.
- NOBODY NEAR THE PLD RESTS EVER.
- NOBODY EVER NOWHERE USES PETS. NEVER.
- PLD SHOULD ONLY USE DEFENSIVE BUFFS (/blu cocoon works nicely, but /war works too)
- NOBODY DO ANYTHING OFFENSIVE ON AA'S THAT ATTACK THE PLD, again. Cept puller lol.

Resting, sitting, putting out pets, claiming a AA that is attacking the PLD will cause hate mechanics to kick in, and make things a lot harder (but not impossible).

Things to watch out for:

- EV can rape everyone 5 times over. If you get her down, don't mind the casualties, you're in great shape.
- You are allowed to wipe once. Twice will be difficult.
- Pets can be slept.
- BRING **** POWDER BOOTS FOR PLD.
- BRING YOUR ARK PENTASPHERE.
- BRING A TP WING.

And again...

- NOBODY USES ANY PET WHATSOEVER. NOWHERE. NEVER.
- DO NOT ENGAGE, CLAIM or ATTACK THE AA's that are FIGHTING PLD.

That's about it. Happy DM.


Study up!

Also, since I'm getting /tells about what meds and stuff to take, for anyone wondering, EVERYONE needs Poison Pots (Regen drinks to counter would be nice too), Reraise (if you don't bring it, I'll kill you myself and you can **** well stay down <.<) and whatever food you'd usually use (Sushi, Pies etc).

On top of that, mages should probably bring along some refresh drinks and all /NIN and magey people will need Echo Drops. Ethers could help in a sticky situation too.

For the melee, Opo-opo Necklaces and Sleep potions if you're not /SAM (so we can trash EV straight off the bat), a TP Wing is a MUST. Hi-Pots could also help if the mages are down/otherwise occupied.

Oh and bring more than just a Scroll of RR, chances are, you'll need more than that.

My Alchemy is at 99+3. No signboard yet (126K/200K GP). Missing the no HQ ring 80K GP) and the Black magic ensorcellment. I've been really lazy to push to 100. This is of course on my Alchemy mule, Brin. Subs of 30 smithing and 50.6 goldsmithing. Why?

I have been trying to get this done for some time and just have horrible luck in that I always either can't make a run, or we go and fail.

I can bring ranger or thief 75.

Just firming up that I will be able to make the timing.

Could you please let me konw which job you would like me to come as? I don't play during the day as it's family time, but I am making an exception for this as it's so hard for me to get these oppurtunities. That being said, I would like to be geared and already in sky ahead of time so that I can just login at 12:30 on Sunday and hopefully everyone will be ready or at least already on their way by that point.

Thanks

Never heard anything, so figured DD are always in need and geared up as Ranger. Logged out just inside Sky. Will log in between 12-12:30 est. Assume I should just be looking for you once I log in Rheia?

Verrick recently made a very good argument over the effectiveness of WAR/blm. Rather than steal his thunder, I will let him post here what he said to Astoner.

@Rheia: You should edit the first post to include the list of confirmed characters at this time, so we can glance easily at who we will be running with.

i have sky on this day at 2:00pm EST, so it would be nice if people could show up on time and ready to enter at the posted time of 12:30pm EST. i will stay as long as it takes because i really want this, but entering on time and going 1/1 is definitely desirable.

this means logging in and being there an hour to a half hour early to go over the strategy and battle plan in depth not to mention change subs as necessary and see who doesnt show up.

im not leading this, but im sure 5:30pm GMT/12:30pm EST/9:30am PST
does NOT mean log in at 5:30pm GMT/12:30pm EST/9:30am PST
and start getting ready.

You do realize that 930 PST is 730 HST for me. So forgive me if I'm not on before that. I was assuming that 930 was gathering time up in sky. If I'm required to be on much earlier, I think I will have to bow out. Can still contact me if you're short a person and I'm logged on.

yea my bad, forgot how early it is 4 other people. logging in @ 930 seems fine by all means. i'm just used to posted times being start times from personal experience but given how early this run is, and considering it is a sunday, 930 is probably going to be a log in time, and im willing to bet there will be stragglers and late risers. after re-reading the OP it seems more like thats what was intended, "gather together in sky on the day". sry :(



also roster needs to be updated since AQ wont be able to come help anymore.

For all those unsure, yes the gather time is the time stated.

Would be funny if Elrik forgot after showing up early last week. I am logged out in sky. Did not know which entrance you wanted to use so still on the main platform.

Only a few hours left people! Its time for early sleeps now.



is not excited. not at all.

Brilliant run guys!

2/2 on Wins and not one loss!

So the first run was a little iffy since someone decided to rest on the Supertank <.< But we recovered and won with 51 seconds remaining anyway; a brilliant testament to how great you guys were through the run!

Second run was a breeze :P not a single wipe! Great job guys! Hope to see as many of you again for Storms of Fate (when I get around to organising it).

Special thanks to Lugaid and the rest of the Supertank party for their brilliant support. There was no way Lug was going down in either of those runs (if not for the resting and causing a wipe <.<).

Congrats to all and thanks for doing such a great job!

Take Care and enjoy your new earrings!
