Do you need sky? Follow

#1 Apr 03 2008 at 10:02 PM Rating: Excellent
I am a lazy guy who doesn't like making his friends do boring stuff if I don't have to. Having sky wasn't really a priority for a long time because I didn't expect to get higher level, or participate in endgame events.

But I hit 75, and it's about time I get sky. Smiley: lol

Starting next week, either 9AM-2PM EST or 4PM-10PM EST (depending on what is most convenient for all involved), I'm going to start doing sky missions.

I think so far the only thing I've done are the Norg CS, so this'll be right from the start.

One of my alts already has an Unlit Lantern, and I plan on farming up some more key items (Paintbrush and other Lanterns) this weekend before / after Dynamis.

I dual box 75RDM and 75PLD, so hopefully it won't be too painful to do the early stuff. But it's boring to do this, so if someone needs it also, it'd be nice to have company.

In before lolnoob doesn't have sky.

Also have a 75WAR/NIN from my LS offer her help.

Smiley: mad I have a social LS with few high levels, and for a long time I had rather limited playtime, and the in-game friends I did make were never on at the same time I was for long periods of time. And when we were on at the same time, I'd rather go exp or bcnm.

Like I said, I didn't plan on getting high level or doing endgame, and part of that "plan" involves sky. Which I didn't do. But I'm doing it now. Smiley: mad

Just trying to toss a bone to others who are in a similar situation. Smiley: oyvey So either offer me your sword, or your axe, or your bow, or stfu. Smiley: mad

Hey, I would be happy to help you with sky =) It's really easy and can be finished within a weekend. I duo'd most of the missions with a RDM friend. Only thing we needed a third member on was "Through the Quicksand Caves", the one with 3 Anticas. We grabbed a NIN from our LS and it was an easy fight. Most of these missions are easy and will only require 2 or 3 people. ZM4 is an exception, since 4 lanterns are needed.

I have an unlit lantern saved in my Storage for when I help others and I have a paintbrush too. Send me a PM, I'm available most of this weekend. I'm also on the west coast, so hopefully I will be able to attend to help out depending on when you plan to do these.

Edit: During the week, I get home at 6:30pm PST ;; Later at night works better for me or weekends.

I need Sea ; ;

I'm on one of the missions with Diabolo's or before Diabolo's or something having to do with that demon which no one wants to help me with...

so yeah. Sky isn't the hard part, Sea seems to be :/

Diabolos can be a **** but he's really just the start of the path to hell. You still have Ouryu, Sacrarium and Airship to look forward too :P

Anyway- you really don't have to justify your reason for not having sky Dand, unless you want to get into a Sky shell its hardly the must have access it once was. I wouldn't be surprised at all if there isn't a good number of lvl 65+ players in the same situation because they started playing after ToAU came out or other stuff getting in the way of completing missions.

Like someone else already said, you can get sky access in a weekend. The fights are pretty easy and at 75 you don't need a full party to kill any of the NMs (or shouldn't). Really, the only "hard" part is all the running around you have to do.

Good luck!

I'm lvl 68 and I don't have sky.


I just don't think it's necessary right now.

That's really cool of you guys to offer to help. If I see you on, I'll send you a tell. If we can knock it out, great, if not, I'll farm up the necessary items or try to duo it. I was only able to get one paintbrush and one Lantern last time I went out, the drop rate sucks. Smiley: frown

Smiley: bowdown you guys.

You only need the paintbrush once- once you get the paintbrush of souls it's a permanent key item that lets you open that granite wall whenever you need too in the painting room.

The unlit lanterns are rare/ex so you can only hold one at a time. Four are needed to light the flames but its possible to just run back and forth with one lantern trading the lit flames to open the gate- especially if you use Sprint shoes..

I dual box, and wanted paintbrush and lantern on both characters. Smiley: smile

I believe I have this paintbrush item.... but I might not... It might that my ex that I used to play with has it and that's how we got through some wall somewhere or something.






I really need to read up on this **** more often.
