Let’s see… Over the week, I levelled my BLM job a lot. Never expected to take it to 52, now I just might take it to 60 and dump all the AF equip to the storage NPC.
Also camped Mysticmaker Profblix for my Moldavite Earring.
1st spawn: Lost claim to a NIN with provoke.
2nd spawn: Skipped to help Traktor at Carmine Dobsonfly NM.
3rd spawn: Traktor helped claim with provoke.
4th spawn: Lost claim to a RDM with Dia.
5th spawn: Claimed with no competitors.
6th spawn: Claimed with bored competitors, got the drop!
Did some skillups for my DRK. Marksmanship is now capped at 200, Elemental capped at 256, Enfeebling went from 140+ to 200+ over 6 hours, spamming dia with WHM sub in a skill up PT at Boyahda’s Steelshells.
I have 3 sets of equipment to work on. Accuracy equip, Strength equip and equip for solo-ing the harder EPs that give 45exp. Here’s a list of what I have, what I want and within my reach.
Ammo: Bomb Core
Head: Optical Hat [+10 ACC]
Neck: Peacock Charm (borrowed)[+10 ACC], else Royal Guard’s collar [+4 ACC]
Ear 1: Minuet Earring [+1 DEX]
Ear 2: Assault Earring [+2 ACC]
Body: Hauberk [+10 ACC, +5 DEX]
Hands: Thick Mufflers [+3 ACC]
Ring 1 and 2: Sniper’s Ring [Total: +10 ACC] (I think I’ll aim for Sniper’s Ring +1 [Total: +14 ACC])
Back: Forager’s Mantle (No accuracy bonus but I’m using this because of +15 attack)
Waist: Life Belt [+10 ACC]
Legs: Thick Breeches [+2 ACC], but I’ve been using Tracker’s Kecks recently for an extra +1 attack
Feet: Adaman Sollerets [+3 ACC], I want the +1 version but sadly, nobody’s selling them. +1 version is called Armada Sollerets and gives +4 ACC. However, I still hate the -10 MND it gives.
Total: +60 Accuracy, +7 Dex.
Ammo: Bomb Core, trying to get Balm Sachet [+1 STR, +1 INT] but very low drop rate.
Head: Wyvern Helm [+5 STR]
Neck: Spike Necklace [+3 STR]
Ear 1: Minuet Earring [+1 STR]
Ear 2: Triumph Earring [+2 STR] (borrowed)
Body: Hecatomb Harness [+12 STR]
Hands: Custom M Gloves [+3 STR], aiming for Hecatomb Mittens [+7 STR]
Ring 1 and 2: Flame Ring [Total: +10 STR, +4 INT] INT is good for my weapon skills.
Back: Forager’s Mantle [+3 STR]
Waist: Warwolf Belt [+5 STR]
Legs: Royal Knight’s breeches [+2 STR], Black Cuisses would be nice for [+4 STR] but they’re very expensive.
Feet: Hecatomb Leggings [+6 STR]
Total: +52 STR, +4 INT. If I use Balin’s Sword, that would be another +4 STR and +2 INT.
People say it’s best to have at least +60 STR. So yea… working on that.
Main Weapon: Death Scythe [Additional Effect: HP Drain, random]
Ranged Weapon: Thug’s zamburak [+1 AGI, +2 Ranged ACC]
Ammo: Blind Bolts [Additional Effect: Blind, 100%]
Head: Optical Hat [+10 Evasion]
Neck: Royal Guard’s collar [Defense: 6]
Ear 1 and 2: Dodge Earring [Total: +6 Evasion]
Body: Chaos Cuirass [Defense: 46, +3 VIT], Assault Breastplate [Defense: 65] awesome but no one knows how to get one yet.
Hands: Blood Finger Gauntlets [Defense: 27, +11 Ranged ACC, +11 Dark Magic]
Ring 1 and 2: Phalanx Ring [Total: Defense: 20]
Back: Forager’s Mantle [Defense: 7]
Waist: Warwolf Belt [+5 VIT]
Legs: Chaos flanchard [Defense: 31, +5 Evasion, +10 Parrying Skill]
Feet: Blood Greaves [Defense: 25, +4 AGI]
Why the above? I need ranged accuracy to land my blind bolts on my targets to lower their accuracy. Evasion speaks for itself. +10 Dark magic makes a lot of difference and reduces resists. Surprisingly, shooting harder EPs are hard without Peacock Charm. Harder EPs also hit me easily so I may just go full defense instead of evasion and eat a nice defense food.
I need luck… Seiryu isn’t dropping the abjurations I need. ; ;
I’ve been levelling my fellow NPC at Altepa’s deserts and farming for Kindred’s Seals at the same time. Last night I decided to try farming off Recluse Spiders at Kuftal’s Tunnels and it seems that I can pull it off but only with WHM sub and some defense foods. My NPC heals only when my health drops down to around 50-60%. Can’t wait for the time where it can support me well enough to farm non-stop. I need to rest for MP about every 2-3 spiders.
My first attempt a Kuftal’s spiders: 3 Spider webs (worth 20k each) and 2 Kindred’s Seals. XD
Finally got my wyrmal abjurations feet and hands. I bought the HQ items to uncurse because since it’s rare/ex, might as well go for the best. Equip mentioned above, I’ve highlighted in blue the ones I don’t have.
