Ideas for Future runs

Post  Phaal on Sun Jul 20, 2008 9:50 pm

Ok, I've been thinking on how to get people their items as fast as possible without leaving people out but would like to have input from yourselves.

according to wishlists and from what people have told me the items people want first are:

Twyla - Morrigans Cuffs (has 35 piece)
Phaal - Usukane feet (has 15 Piece)
Nenheh - Usukane feet
Fishara - Morrigans body
Wildside - Skadi feet
Gwindor - Skadi cuirie
Evilgenius - Marduk Head
Sirjamesta - Ares Cuirass
Popper - Area Cuirass
Hyunkyl - Usukane Haramaki

I think it might be better to try get everyone on this list the lvl 15 piece first, then try work towards getting the lvl 25 pieces for us all from bosses then the rarer 35 pieces.

Some of these have close runs that can be done to help another. For instance, we can farm the card that from Zhayolm to pop the NM for Ares cuirass lvl 15 and Morrigans body lvl 15, while doing the NM for uskane feet lvl 15. (as a bonus this would also get wildside and gwindor skadi head lvl 15 another person usu feet 15 who needs and lvl 15 marduk legs for EG).

Then on the way to pop the NM from the card we can kill dekka for lvl 15 skadi feet. as it on the same path, as well as farm for the silver sea card for the NM that drops skadi cuirie lvl 15.

Skadi cuirie lvl 15 is from jakko in zhayolm remnants by trading silversea card.

Marduk tiara lvl 15 gear is a rare drop from monsters in bhauflau remnants.



These are just random thoughts atm that will hopefully be put into runs, but as i've already said any further help would be great.

Actually, I want Morrigans Slops more than anything in game at the moment full stop lol. But obviously the cuffs are on my list too. Wink

Aside from that, sounds good. Smile

ok Twyla, well we can farm the level 15 gear for those from achaic machinary (gears etc) in Arrapago remnants, which can also rarely drop the lvl 15 body for ares.

Gonna try look up advice on how to small man those as last time i remember us having real difficultly killing them before they warped.

Edit: Also lvl 15 piece for Usukane Haramaki for Hyunkyl is obtained from the slot NM in Arrapago remnants - Bhauflau Remnants Card. This drops from the Archaic Machinary in Bhauflau remnants which would need to be killed on the way to the Mega Boss anyway and has a chance of the Marduk head lvl 15 piece for evilgenius, but further strengthens our need to be able to kill gears better.

I believe Gwindor has a Bhauflau Card? Someone has definately mentioned having one before. I'll find out who.

Unfortunately I can't remember our set up last time we attempted the Arrapago Remnants gears, believe we were low on gear/stats that time due to the lack of thf too, but I'll do some research into killing them as well.

Mega Boss runs planning ^^

Post  hyunkyl on Mon Aug 25, 2008 8:15 am

Hi everyone!

I figured I might as well make good use of my time looking for party on my 63 warrior XD So I came up with this ^^

First of all, like I posted earlier, we can restart doing some Mega Boss runs (with enough attendance) to boost our item/time ratio on salvage gear Wink I would like to mention that we will probably have to do 5-10 of those runs for the level 25 pieces depending on the drop rate distribution ( which set drop and how many of those versus how many we need ) but that will make us stronger and more experienced in that way Wink

We should start with the easiest and work our way up to the hardest zone to conquer, in this order :

1) Easy, Arrapago zone
2) Middle, Silver Sea zone
3) Middle, Zhayolm zone
4) Hard, Bhaflau zone

And for the setup with those Mega Boss runs will be fairly the same for all of them, but this might need tweaking depending on how well we do Wink

I would like to have the following setup for Mega Boss runs:

1) 2 tanks ( Monk, Ninja ) (Warrior, Samourai could also work )
2) 2 healers ( White Mage, Red Mage ) ( Scholar, Summoner could also work )
3) 1 Bard with "Storm Fife"
4) 1-2 refresher/party buffer ( Red Mage, Corsair )
5) And some heavy DD's ( BLM,RNG,WAR,SAM,DRG,DRK,MNK) depending on what we need
6) and 1 Thief for the lovely lvl 35 NM we gonna do on the way ^^

Those on MNK,NIN,WAR,SAM might be asked to be backup tanks if anything goes wrong too Razz

Basically the first party would consist of 2 tanks, 2 healers, brd and refresher/pt buffer = that is the core party that will go against the Mega Bosses, the rest of the members will help DoT spells/ spike dmg and assist the core pt in anyway they can . That is a huge team effort and cooperation that takes skill Wink

So far, and I may have missed a few members that I didn't see during the summer and apologize in advance for it, we have these members atm :

Hyunkyl SAM NIN
Gwindor COR RDM
Fishara RDM
Twyla BLM
Nenheh NIN RDM
Phaal MNK
Popper DRG
Evilgenius BRD
Wildside COR WAR
Sirjamesta DRK

and we had some friend/helpers too that may or may not go regularaly with us, who knows ?

So we have most of the setup complete, just have to make sure with everyone that members, jobs and wishlists are up to date to begin the mad race to acquire salvage gear for everyone, starting September 7th ^^

P.S. Might wanna do a Zhayolm Remnants zone 4th floor NM farming on August 31st to get Nenheh usukane feet lvl 15 so that we can be done with the 30 min pop condition Nm run once and for all, providing no one else that will be there needs it. I will be out of town due to my attendance to a wedding in the family!

Please feel free to leave your toughts/opinios on my post Wink good or bad will help in any way !

Plan for Arrapago Remnants

Post  hyunkyl on Fri Sep 05, 2008 3:45 pm

First floor:

Clear NW wing from the start point. Don't do sneak/invis to get past qutrub, just kill them all. Target time should be 15 minutes.

When NW cleared, head to SW wing. Clear first room of qutrub, and get the lamia in the hall and the south room.

Head to SE wing. Clear the first couple rooms. Here's where you get the payout from killing all the qutrub. With a sufficient number of qutrubs killed, the draugars tend to drop HP cells at about an 80%+ rate, plus plenty of back pieces and an occasional stat.

Should only need to take care of a couple of rooms in the SE wing, if that. Head to the NE wing and clear enough to get any extra needed cells (get everyone HP; kill the lamia if you're short on magic/JA/etc). Then sneak up and clear a couple ghosts for ring cells and port up.

Optional: rampart on first floor if your thf has TH4 hands, since you can get a hand cell from it. Have the rng shadowbind the cactuar if it pops and just leave it (leave someone stationed at portal before heading to the rampart).


Second floor: Pull a draugar for TP, then go kill the QQA. Port up.


Third floor: Sneak/invis past everything and use the wall-hugging trick on the QQTH (NW corner is nice because you can keep target on the mob and see when it's coming back). Port up.


Fourth floor: Kill QQTH. Can get Bhoot if you're interested in that drop.


Fifth floor: Clear 4 gears. Send thf ahead to trigger the door to open and kill the QQA. Sneak to center and pull Archaic Chariot (may need to clear rampart and goobbue spawn first, or sac pull). Straight tank this since everyone should have HP.


On a good run you'll have 30 minutes left at this point, average run might have 20. If your brd has JA and can 2 hr you can try to spawn the QQTHs on the Sixth floor (have to kill everything on the floor within 7 minutes). Otherwise just clear the floor (you'll get tons of cells here, so gear everyone up that was missing stuff) and head up to boss.

And we can always skip a NM or 2 on the way for the first few runs to get the hang of it Smile

Armored Chariot ( Arrapago Remants Mega Boss)

Post  hyunkyl on Fri Sep 05, 2008 3:56 pm

Armored Chariot :

Located in Arrapago Remnants - Seventh Floor
Approximately 50,000 HP. Does not auto-regen during battle, but will regenerate normally if left passive with no DoT spells.
Uses normal Chariot attacks, plus Mortal Revolution
AoE 300-1000+ damage and adds Stun for ~3-5 seconds.
Absorbed by 1-3 shadows.
Fairly low Accuracy.

So basically, just need the tanks to ALWAYS have shadows up and the healers to heal them to full after Mortal Revolution ^^

We need a few more members, please read!

Post  hyunkyl on Mon Sep 08, 2008 6:50 pm

Hi everyone!

We were quite a few to pop for salvage yesterday (sunday) but we wre missing 2-3 key job players so I had to cancel run , but we did have a small talk between ourselves and this is what came out:

So far our members are:

Hyunkyl SAM NIN
Gwindor COR RDM
Fishara RDM
Twyla BLM
Nenheh NIN RDM
Phaal MNK (status unknown)
Popper DRG
Evilgenius BRD
Sirjamesta DRK RDM

We are missing a few jobs if we really wanna own Megas Bosses Wink I've had discussions with a possible SCH 75, and Sirjamesta and Gwindor are having discussions with possible THF friends Razz Twyla is checking what's happening with Phaal, so what we are missing, if the ppl we recruiting atm do come, is 1-2 MNK and we would be golden to breeze thru almost anything, unless you guys/gals know a WHM,BRD that would like to come Wink

I would like to also point out that Thursday runs (or whichever day suits ppl more) would be a farming run to gather some lvl 15 and 35 pieces Wink Sunday will stay a Mega Boss day, and in the event we do a 2nd salvage after the first one on sunday, will probably be farming as well unless we have almost everyone willing to come again ^^ I will take charge on sunday runs, but I can't attend/manage weekdays run so that means someone steps ups Wink

And here is the basic lotting system on lvl 25 pieces dropped by Mega Bosses. First of all, Mega Bosses always drop 2 lvl 25 pieces, but it can be 2 different pieces or 2 of the same xd That means that on multiple runs, we could have some spare pieces Wink I personnaly would like everyone to get all 25 pieces they need for their sets, but we will discuss this once we can do that stuff Razz

So the lotting system we have includes 3 pieces that we would like to acquire in priority, and this will work too with 25 pieces also.First priorities will get lvl 25 piece first, second priority on second drop and third priority on third drop. In the event that 2 players are on the same priority, attendance will dictate the lot winner and if those 2 players have same attendance, lotting contest Wink that's pretty simple to follow ^^ If a piece drops and no one has priority on it, probably gonna be freelot for ppl on the same set as the piece Smile That pretty covers it on that part ^^

A little survey ;)

Post  hyunkyl on Mon Sep 08, 2008 6:53 pm

On a totally different note, I do have a question for you guys:

Would you let a player who is 2/3 on an item lot the last piece to complete it if everyone else is 1/3 ?

Here is my opinion on the subject: I think that if a player is 2/3 on a certain piece and everyone else is 1/3, it could be more beneficial for everyone to have a stronger member to help ous out then have 2 player at 2/3 for a long time, but that's just my way of thinking ^^ What do you guys think ?

I think it makes sense for the person who's 2/3 to get it. Would be nice to get a few people with completed pieces.

a little update on members

Post  hyunkyl on Tue Sep 16, 2008 6:58 am

So far our members are:

Hyunkyl SAM NIN
Gwindor COR RDM
Fishara RDM
Twyla BLM
Nenheh NIN RDM
Phaal MNK (had problems with internet provider but should be alright soon)
Popper DRG (status unknown)
Evilgenius BRD (status unknown)
Sirjamesta DRK RDM
Baicas BLM RDM
Zynui THF DRG

So we finally got ourselves a THF, maybe have 1-2 more otw xd and on healing side, should be okay with 3 rdms Razz and maybe a sch otw ^^ what i'm worried about is that we don't have news of Evilgenius, who's BRD is extremely important to do well in salvage, so if we could find another BRD, we would rock ^^ In the end, if we have 2 BRD, more power for the win xd I would also like for ppl to begin attending sunday runs, that we we can all get familiar with each other and get some stuff out of the way ^^
