Eld’s Guide to Collecting Zeni…

I wrote this in response to some comments from peeps in the shell. However much you point people at the wiki, some people won’t read it. Drives me nuts frankly. I’m sure peeps have written other (and better) guides, this is just mine. We’re about to try Tinnin for Firi, so everyone attending suddenly needs 500z.

Mothra-Ninjas and other animals

H’oh boy has the last week or so been interesting.  As ever our weekend was fairly busy. Not HNM  ‘get-to-the-chopper’ busy but pretty busy. Can I remember what the hell I was about to type just then? No… right so let’s start again! I have some images to add to this post but they’re at home, because I forgot to upload them yesterday.

I’m pretty sure that I did something on Saturday before Dynamis, but it wasn’t anything huge. I tend not to be on much before or after Dynamis.

I think we helped Tibi with her SAM AF fight in Palborough. I know I’ve spent some time on BRD/NIN down in Boyada, helping Doy towards his goal of capping Great Axe on DRK.  Mostly to suffer abuse but sometimes to get some weapon skill points towards unlocking my Dagger of Trials.  I should work on my BLM, SMN and SCH Nyzul staves but I really can’t face them right now. I’ve unlocked Mordant Rime, Death Blossom and Mystic Boon (awesome!) but even with decent haste gear, I hate two-handed weapon tping.

Anyway, Doy is only a few points from cap now and we did Dynamis Jeuno. Again. Read More…

65 COR and some ZNMs

Although I’ve seen a fair amount of gil in recently, levelling COR seems to involve watching it flow out again… Hit 65 today which means it’s getting to be almost event worthy in some circumstances. Won’t get used yet but might now come out for meripo or manaburn.

65 COR/RNG setup

65 COR/RNG setup

4 rank 4 prizes in the Mog Bonanza and a 1/5 share in a Hagun+Scouter’s Rope has helped. I’ve bought Genie Gages which I’ll see once I get some Oracle’s gloves. I’ve also managed to pick up a Beater’s earring finally. Bought some dusk trousers and a pair of war brais as well as a stack of iron bullet pouches. Will prolly make some steel bullets for WS.

Legs seem the problem area for COR. I’d like some Denali kecks and some Pahluwan. Dusk are awesome as long as you are not running around. I need to finish off my WAR and RNG subs, 24 and 34 respectively.

With Blood Finger gauntlets my ranged set is going to be fine. Just now really need to work on a melee tp set for my sword and some merits. I can start on sword now if I want but marksmanship will have to wait til COR hits 75.

Had some fun yesterday running around doing bits and pieces. Finished ACP for Nana, did Dell’s Savage Blade WSNM as he’s now a 75 WAR and has already ploughed in quite a few merit into it. So now he’s opening WS that he hasn’t needed before. Helped C skill up Great Axe as he’s decided to finish his WAR at last. I think he’s 63 and he’s enjoying it as a change. Collected a few zenis, now have a Khromasoul pop and Ere has an Achamoth. I have the seal to get another Anantaboga done and then we’ll do Nosferatu as well. Hopefully then we can have a shot at Sarameya. I want an Oracle’s robe, Ere wants the Hachi pants. Lots of cool stuff drops from him.

No doubt we’ll have to repeat until the drops we’d like to see, fall but its not too bad. We did manage to do 4 Obs finally netting 2 guignol earrings, one for Firi and one for Alustriel as well as some attachments. I’m trying to be good and get some zenis each day.

Did Black Coffin for Reccaa and BA, in the process getting it done for Mitch so now all three have access to Salvage. Which is cool (should Nia’s hat ever drop). We took a weekend off from events entirely, including Limbus. So we didn’t pop Omega again but we will be on Sunday.

Had an email and then a long chat with Mac on the phone, that was good. I still feel a bit like no one person is telling me the whole story but I was glad we talked. That’s not me making a dig Mac, just the whole thing has seemed a bit surreal and there are lots of people having lots of conversations behind each other’s backs.

Other things have come to light which I hope have now exposed the fact that whilst I am in no way perfect, I have tried to do the right thing. I hope everyone can now go on and enjoy the game the way they’d like to, instead of lashing out at each other.

Looking forward to Dynamis and Einherjar this weekend, a weekend away was nice but want to see some friends finish some relic sets!

What we did this weekend, now with new white pearl!

It’s funny, whilst drama rages in the background Serendipity peeps continue to just get on with it. We reshelled on Friday to save more drama. Peeps have been great about it. I was surprised at who popped up and demanded a pearl, it was great. Personally, well I’ve been up and down with things but I’m only human /shrug. Still some to pearl as peeps were away, we’ll see if we lose anyone else once all are caught up with. Read More…

ZNM – Anantaboga

I was not destined to get xp on COR last night. Might try again tonight once the Mog Bonanza frenzy and token Soboro run has taken place (need at least 1 Great Katana).

So, after asking peeps on the shell whether they were interested (most peeps were busy already), three of us went off to what we thought was certain Doom ™. Me (RDM/WHM), Rotx (BLM/WHM), Erestor (RNG/NIN).

Anantaboga is a Dahak BRD on one of the islands off Mount Zhayolm. We need several seals from him to pop the three NMs in the tier above for a Sarameya pop.  Ere and I decided to team up on getting pops for this because he wants melee gear and I want mage (Oracle Robe prz).

After some initial scouting and a couple of throwaway comments on wiki we decided to pop it, grav it and run like hell all the way to the South beach to kill it there.

Things we learnt: Read More…

Charybdis soloed by a DNC, Dynamis & ZNMs

Gah, lost an hour’s sleep this weekend and although it doesn’t seem like a big shift I’d like to blame my sleepy state on that. Not on the late night skype chats after I logged!

Missed claiming Charybdis the other day for a friend. Annoying but he popped super early and we didn’t have enough people there anyway, or rather a great job setup.  The person who did claim it turned out to be a 75 DNC/NIN, solo.  Not sure whether they were going to be ok, and being honest reckoning if they weren’t, we’d have a shot; we hung around. I can honestly say, I really didn’t expect them to do it. An hour later, Charybdis died, the kitty had soloed it 100-0 and anyone left cheered/saluted, cos honestly we were damn impressed. I think their name was Nyanco. Half tempted by DNC having seen that but not really in the mood for levelling anything else.

We had an epic Sandy Dynamis run this weekend.  Only saw one, hundred piece but it was pretty impressive. We cleared the entire zone before popping the Boss.  For all our hard work we saw 17 pieces of relic armour drop!
