I'd be hard pressed to use up all my stones even that way. My group, which consists of 3 people with a total of 6 chars go in, farm lights from ephs, have the war (who is also outfitted to proc red/blue) fell cleave us up to 400 minutes, we do our event, we leave with 120. Takes about an hour usually. I haven't touched a stone in like 3 weeks but I've been in abyssea for hours each day, pretty much every day.

Actually, I have about the same amount of stones myself; I'm too lazy to make sure to farm TE before going on Abyssea binges, but I'm also too lazy to make myself get more seals for +1s, so it all kind of balances out.

When the lazinesses are out-of-balance, though, it wreaks havoc on my stones until the balance shifts again.

Many people are still struggling for stones if they don't have the resources and/or RL time to farm TEs.

To be honest, i mostly just wanted the free month from the referral, since my premium was going to end in 2 weeks, and i didn't want to spend $30 before christmas, and i also didn't want to waste money only buying 3 months for myself (lol@3+1 months for $10 being the same price per month as buying a full year).

I'm on the first stage of my first Magian Trials anything ever, kill Panzer Percival 3 times, and I'm on the 3.5th hour with no spawn desperately seeking a reason to play and looking the reward/time ratio in the face and thinking I'm done. Kudos for finishing your trial.

Rog (Or anyone that can manage to answer correctly before he can) help me out, I'm guessing that "Fast Cast +3" means a 3% decrease in cast time (precast) and a 3% decrease in recast time (midcast, if kept equipped) but what I'm unsure of is that if you need to have the Fast Cast trait pre-existing from a job trait or item that gives "Enhances Fast Cast" to make "Fast Cast +X" activate?

Also, does Loquacious Earring give Melee -5% Cast/Recast reduction to Melee jobs casting Utsu?

Thanks for the help.

The recast reduction is only half the cast time reduction, so -3% is -1.5% recast.

sh*t's situational. Certain items (vivid strap, whatever the @#%^ those blm shoes are from that nm in casm, that's name i can't seem to remember, and maybe some others) don't seem to work unless you have another source of fc (such as loq), but otherwise yeah, you don't need the trait.

Once I get my third lunar, which hopefully will be soon, I can throw on Atma of Ultimate and one shot puddings. That should help considerably with kill speed.

The 2 rings I did get replace my mermans in my rdm mdt set though so thats a plus

Yea, I know, but I'd have to leech level it and work on af3+2 from scratch. I will eventually but been busy lately chasing atma and empyrean weaps and af3 for other jobs.

Still though, you'd think in 14 hours I'd see at least ONE good ring.

Kill faster. The last time i did dem, i got 3 good rings, and a hairpin in ~4 hours solo/duo (about half solo, half duo with another blm). One ring was pdt/mdt-5 breath-3, the other two iirc both had 5 pdt, and varying amounts of mdt.

Obviously i got lucky there, but still, my point stands: kill faster.

Oh, and for an example on the other side: it took me 7 hours of soloing in vunkerl to get a single int+3 ring. And i didn't even get a +2, or even a +1 ring before that. And that's still kill far faster than you were. This is probably closer to average luck, or maybe a little worse than average. I definitely wouldn't complain unless you're doing much worse than this.

Were you like 3 hours late because you were EXPing? Or just signed on late? I know if I came late to a Dynamis and they told me I couldn't lot, I wouldn't waste whatever time remains in that zone with those people, and actually since it's Dynamis, FFXI's most played out long-winded boring content, I'd probably laugh at them and drop my pearl on the spot.

He was in my XP alliance, went to Dyna, came back and got RDM feet before he left (well, we before we disbanded). I'm pretty happy now that I got RDM feet too, as well as BLM75.

So...when can I start -ga farming anyway? And what's a good mob to start on?

Should try for 80 for vert, but could probably manage at 75 if you wanted to. Taurus are at vunkerl are great. lots of them in a relatively small area, they don't deaggro, and they aggro+link (and they path poorly, so when you run from one side to the other, they'll all line up vertically, linking everything in the way). Also, doom, so no one will bother you. Oh, and they'll do 0 damage with a good phalanx+tacos+pdt set.

We practically zombied it a bit. We had something like 5 whms (3 were dual boxxed mules), rdm, brd, 2 blm and a bunch of dds/mules. We'd use 1-2 dds at a time, spamming cures, once they got charmed or died, someone else would take over, and repeat. Lots of kiting, dying, etc was also involved. We had to reset rage twice. Drg with angon helped a ton. At like 15%, we did red, and zerged it down to 1%, before someone died, and then about 30 mins later we killed it.

Also, you don't know me at all, if you really thought there was any chance of me not wanting to share a strategy Smiley: frown

I haven't been posting here very long, so you're right I dont know you very well.


We did something similar as far as the 3 hour zombie kite do some dmg people hp and come back instead of wait for weakened and resetting rage thing, we just weren't as organized.

Originally we tried rdm rdm thf whm war brd. hour later it was just, stuck at 70% and curing itself so one of the rdm's brewed but we didnt know about the healing it during casting thing and it was already raged. Nukes were doing 6k, 2 landed during spell and healed him for 15k a piece. Fun.
