Hey guys, I know my lvl is low, but I would really like to do 5-1 because i can't do airship quests anymore, makes me mad i lose alot of money. anyhew i could get friend to help, but it'd take a bit, so if any of you need to do it or are 50+ and can help, let me know. i wanna be rank 6 by the expansion if at all possible.

Rymage 5-1 is a level 50 capped BCNM fight. As such if people take you along at a low level you are going to be a serious liability in a fairly tough fight. Also, literally everything will aggro on you during the whole trip to Fei'yin and will kill you in a couple of hits.

Mission 5-2 we did with 5 level 60ish people so if you can somehow beat 5-1, and then convince a party that level to take you through the castle you might be able to do it.

Then again, the repeated AOEs that the second form of the Shadowlord throws would probably kill you before your WHM could get off a Curaga to save you.

Not to sound pessimistic, but I don't see how you could get Rank 6 without being 50th level.

The 5-1 BC fight is pretty tough if you don't have the proper party to setup. 5-2 is even tougher because of **** Shadowlord's different stages of defence.

I would love to do 5-1 to help you out. However, if your lvl is just not enough, I don't think it's worth the trip to go Fei'Yin just to get slaughtered in the BC. 1st time I did 5-1 BC with an all mages (THF,DRK,RDM,BLM,BRD,SMN) JP party was almost a disaster, I ended up tanking the skeleton and took all the MP to kill it.

2nd time I was just bored and helped a friend out with the mission, it was unbelievalbe easy and a success with proper setup and everyone doing their jobs.

If your info is up to date, I'm afraid it's not sufficient enough to even do 5-1.

Rymage, I assumed that you would either have invis or someone who could give it to you. But if it slips even once, in any place along the way, you are instantly dead.

I am not trying to discourage you, but I wanted you to have a realistic feel for what to expect.

5-1 is a hard fight. Even if you cna make it there, you are going to contribute very little to the fight making it even harder.

The AOEs in 5-2 are going to drop you long before you have a chance to heal yourself. At level 63 our BLM was taking 200+ a pop. Imagine how much you will take at your level?

Wait, what's this?

is the number of times you can do discerning individual quest limited by rank? Is this the smuggler quest? or is this some other quest I haven't heard of?

:confused:

5-1? Hard? Are you on crack? All you need is one monk and you'll be done in 3 minutes, granted you can keep the monk alive for that long. And if you have 2 monks you're guaranteed to win.

That being said, I never allow people less than 48 to go on 5-1 runs with me. The aggro is just too big a pain to deal with.

Oh please 5-1 is about as easy as the rank 3 dragon thingie... Bring a bard to sleep the skellies, a monk to beat them up, and a random healer, and you're done.

(Check out the ffxionline forums for a video of a RDM that soloed 5-1)
