My last 2 PTs were good. So good it took me from 57→60.
The first one went like this. Initially, I received a /tell asking if I could hold hate. I simply replied that it depends on the PT. Which is true because if you have a trigger happy BLM, it will be difficult to pull hate off him. Turns out it was a BLM PT. Setup was PLD RDM BRD BLM BLM BLM, lv57-59, camp at Cape Terrigan, near beach. Fighting crabs, pugils and raptors.
2 of the NA BLMs disconnected a few times and eventually never came back. We ended up with 5 members. Leader invited another BLM to come before he himself disconnected and never came back. I wasn’t surprised anyway. I’ve heard complaints about those 2 players, years ago from people in my linkshell.
It turned out to be pretty good with 5. I was puller and I never stopped pulling. BLMs became conservative on MP and we could hit chain 4 with as high as 280exp once. Throughout every fight I healed myself and so could hold hate very well. 1MP from auto-refresh, 3MP from RDM’s refresh, another 3 from BRD’s 2x Ballad for a total of 7MP/tick.
The whole PT lasted 5 hours. We had a short break after the first hour and went non-stop for 4 hours. Total EXP gained was around 20K. Shoulders ached a little after this PT.
Next day, ls mate Sollanon made a PT with PLD SMN BRD BLM RNG BLU, lv59-60. Camp at
Aydeewa Subterrane. Crawlers and Spiders. The first 5 minutes were rough. But after everyone gets used to it, it pretty ok. Chained up to 5 and without empress band, we got EXP as high as 390s. This includes a slight sanction bonus from having Astral Candescene safe in Al Zahbi.
In the end I manage to finally hit 60 and wear full PLD AF. Looks cool. [XD]
