No to ruin any of your thought about BCNM's but I would say wait till lvl 40. I have been in a few BCNM's below lvl 40 and they were no fun....all of them ended with death. My LS came with me on these. BCNM20 Ghelsba Outpost Colo-colo and 2 furrier bats (I think). Went with Drk, Rdm, and Nin, Failed. Tryed again with DRK, Nin, PLD, Failed. Went with RDM DRK PLD well you know the answer. Then when I hit lvl 30 we decided to go try BCNM30 Ghelsba Outpost Pertrafieing (typo) Pair, 2 Diffrent lizzys. Went in with a Drk, Nin, & a Drg but we died way too fast...

My Brother was a lvl 50 RDM and he went to go do BCNM 40 at Pal Mines, vs Flayer Frans and 10-15 Flesh eaters. They had a few RNG's so they could do it from a far and got it dones 5/6 times, only the first time they failed. So Personally when I hit 40 I plan on doing that seeing as I'm a RNG and as I need gil >.> (btw my brother got a scroll of erase which he sold for 300K on his server).

But Really its all upto the person that wants to do it, If you can find a good party combo that can do those plz tell me I'm interested in actually trying those again.

We (Dyterium, Samanosuke and I) beat BCNM20 on our third try, after Samano switched to paladin instead of samurai, which made a LOT of difference. We did it with ranger/warrior (me), white mage/black mage (Dyterium) and paladin/warrior (Samano). In the third one, the one we won, I didn't even have my 2 hour, as I'd used it in the first, though they did Benediction and Invincible.

Once we changed the line-up, it was really no problem at all. Crappy drops, though. But! It can be done. ^^ And we'll probably do it again, since there are specific items we're looking for.

Damn straight we're doing it again!

Although...I'm wondering if we should wait until your NIN dings 10 for us to make another attempt...weighing up the benefits of a 20RNG/WAR over 20RNG/NIN.

Nevertheless, we're gonna go back and kick some sorry bat butt. Colo-Colo is going down!

Edited because a monkey threw poo at this post and make it sound stupid.

RNG/WAR over RNG/WAR, eh? Smiley: lol I know what you meant. ^^ If it were 22, it might make a difference, but at 20, I think warrior is probably a better sub.

Yeah, just ignore me. I though the Archer's Knife was level 20 for some reason.

I'm just very stupid today, it seems. ; ;

I will now go remove my hands, thus rendering me unable to type.

Unless I continue to type with my nose, as I appear to have been doing all day.

/sleepy Samano.

This is what happens when you spend all night on loser row in Jueno, then give up and kill your WHM down two levels ^^

Lookit! For two brief, shining posts, my rating was 3.63 instead of 3.62!

/sigh

That last one is 3.63 too!

I know the feeling though, my posts have been bouncing between 3.77 and 3.78 lately.

Wow, this nose-typing thing is harder than I thought.

Personally, I blame Bakkasan.

But a good hijack is always fun. The OP got their info, now I get to have fun with it ^^

Plus, work is boring. This is far more entertaining.

o.O East Coast? Did you move me when I wasn't looking?

Maybe you need a geography lesson. I'm to the right of the saucepan state and above the cattle panhandle.

Eastern time zone, whatever. Unless I'm mistaken, but I could have sworn you were EST.

I have no idea what states you're talking about, either.

Ooh, I never knew he played PLD...

Now I'm confused though, if he's PLD why did you want a Priest's Robe for him?

I don't bother with any of em that are 40 or lower...the level 40 Giddeus one has nice drops and isn't really too hard. It's not really worth the seals doing any lower than 40, in my opinion.

Because he's also leveling WHM, BLM, and maybe bard. He has job ADD. ^^

Dyterium... maybe this weekend? There's just so much to do....

Well, this really isn't a good one to just randomly do unless you're looking for a specific item. Dyterium is, and we're his bitches, apparently, so we're trying to get him his lance. ^^

If you want to just try a BCNM for the hell of it, I suggest leveling your paladin to 30 and looking for a group at that level.

Try doing an item lookup on the word "orb." You'll see a list of them, like Sky Orb, Cloudy Orb, etc. You can use these as jumping off point to find the BCNM pages here on Alla.

The number refers to the level cap.

My bitches, huh? I thought it was the other way around. ^^

Anyway there's still some decent drops off the bats... any of the Platoon equipment sells for a decent price, and there's the mannequin parts, which we could all benefit from.

But yeah, I want that lance... bad.

So if I wanted to do one say this weekend (cause I really want to do one and see the drops, dont care how good they are), which one should I do BCNM20?? any tips for first timers?? and do you have to use 20 seals for the BCNM20 and 40 for BCNM40??

Correct. Personally, I'd look at what drops you want most, then cross that with which BCNM you think you have the best chance at. Find one with a drop you want that won't be - too - taxing.

As for tips, read forums. Ask people who have done them before (kinda like what you did here). Do what Zav said, look into each orb and read the posts connected to get tips on beating the BCNM.

But above all, have fun with it! As Dyt, Zav and I found out, even getting slaughtered can be fun ^^
