Finally II: The Haidatenation!

Lets start with the obvious, we finally got Izman's Haidate. Took freaking forever, I believe we were something like 0/6-7 on Byakko before yesterday, and it wasn't like it was dropping anything good anyway. >.< We have gotten a ton of N. Hands, but zippy D. Legs, and zippy Haidate. Oh and if you want to free lot E. Feet, Versus is the place to be. LOL Anyway, our first Kitty on Sunday dropped, another N. Hands... these are almost free lot now. So we did a second Kitty, because, you know, at some point the Byakko's Haidate HAS TO DROP! And finally... finally it did! Izman quickly lotted them and everyone passed and Iz put them on... wait, he didn't because he was on PLD. LOL Anyway, it was the end of the run anyway so we went back and Iz switched over to WAR and put them on... Congrats, Iz! Our Byakko's were a bit funny today... on the first one Iz and I did a fine job tanking it, but for some reason about 3/4 of the way through the fight Hellz got hit with a random Razor Fang. I don't know how a DRG got hate that late in a fight with a PLD/NIN and a NIN/DRK. It was really weird and it happened twice, and it didn't happen to anyone else in the whole fight. Then on the second Byakko again about 3/4 of the way through the fight Byakko randomly went after the WHM that when they Devotioned each other, then it went straight back to Iz and I. It's not like hate was loose at all outside of that, just that Byakko decided that it wanted to attack a random person then go back to the tanks. And I just don't know how they got that high on the hate list. In general, Iz can hold hate better than I, so even if I am not holding hate, then Izman will. It didn't matter too much to be though because on the last 15% of Byakko, it triple attacked me AND Razor Fanged me at the same time when I was casting Ni. That fixed me real good, but Akanea stepped in and finished the fight like a champ. It was a good day for Versus, we got a bunch of people to get the Ouryu CoP fight done, Sky was great, Faust, Ullikummi, Water, MG, Zip in that order, then the Haidate. Good day indeed.

Outside of Versus events, I have still been quite busy. On Friday, a bunch of us helped Epiphany to finish the Airship fight, it was pretty easy like normal, but a bit slower. Only finished with like a minute and a half left, but we didn't have a perfect set up. NIN, WAR, MNK, DRG, WHM, BLM, kept Omoi on he toes with having to deal with all of the status effects and keeping me healed. And we finished up Tenzen last night, and now Pip has Sea access and will be attending Limbus tonight. Speaking of Limbus, it looks like, with Achikasama at the lead, Versus is going to have about 10 new people in Sea in about two weeks. LOL She has been working really hard to get everyone to Sea. This coming weekend it looks like a Sacrarium run and a Promyvion-Vahzl run. This puts a large group of people at the Three Paths, which now that the Snoll Tzar has been severely nerf, should be no problem at all. RNG/SAM for me for those fights. LOL Hasso/Seigen/Meditate makes this thing a joke and my accuracy is great on him, I can probably eat meat. :) That is all without having to use EES. In related news of helping people, I also went on a very late night Swift Belt with Akanea, Thazienne, Saorise, Tamarisk and a few others. Akanea and Thazienne managed to get their Swift Belts! Poor Tamarisk's didn't drops though. >.< That is the second time she hasn't had hers drop. Its too bad that she doesn't get a better chance at one, I think this is only the second try she has made at getting a belt. It's too bad she isn't getting more help with it, and I will definitely help her again whenever she wants to try to get one!

In a last bit of a weekend review, Kira got to level 70 on BRD and I got to 71 on WAR. ^.^/ We have both been dying a lot recently. LOL But the parties are getting better, and the higher we get the better the XP. Another thing is that we have a bunch of friends that need to finish off jobs like Glacian, Kira and I, and people that need a bunch of merits or ISP like Izman and Hellz, so I think we are going to focus on a little late night XPing to get us all sorted out. And after I level WAR, I am going to need merits too, but then there is my MNK... Man, do I love MNK! LOL With getting the D. Body last week at Kirin, I am going to focus on leveling my MNK. BRD is going on the back burner, because honestly, it doesn't punch things. LOL Nah, really because I already basically have all the gear I need for my MNK. I mean honestly, lets take a peek at end-game gear for MNK and see what I already have.

TP Build:
Main: I actually don't have Destroyers yet, but I can get them pretty easily I think. :)
Head: Walahra Turban (Maybe something different here, not sure yet)
Neck: Chivalrous Chain (I know I can do better than this, but this is what I use on everything)
Ear1: Brutal Earring
Ear2: I would like to finally get my Ethereal Earring, but I still don't have one. Probably just use Spike until I get it.
Body: Shura Togi
Hands: O's Kote of course
Ring1: Sniper's Ring
Ring2: Raja's Ring
Back: Amemet Mantle +1
Waist: Well, I don't have a Brown Belt yet, but I do have the Marbolger Vine, so the other two will just take a bit of camping. I am definitely not going to level without the Brown Belt, but I can camp the NM's as NIN/THF and it should be easy.
Legs: Byakko's Haidate
Feet: I don't have Dune Boots yet, but I can get them relatively easily too.

WS Build:
Main: Destroyers
Head: Shura Kabuto
Neck: Soil Gorget (I know I can do better than this, but this is what I use on everything)
Ear1: Brutal Earring
Ear2: Maybe my Minuet Earring for this? I don't know.
Body: Shura Togi (Maybe Kirin's Osode? I dont know, I will have to look into Accuracy versus Stats for Asuran Fists, but I think the Togi will probably get better. And I don't even have Osode yet, and there is a long list in front of me for it.)
Hands: O's Kote
Ring1: Sniper's Ring
Ring2: Raja's Ring
Back: Amemet Mantle +1
Waist: Well, I don't have a Brown Belt yet, but I do have the Marbolger Vine, so the other two will just take a bit of camping. I am definitely not going to level without the Brown Belt, but I can camp the NM's as NIN/THF and it should be easy.
Legs: Shura Haidate? Still need this, haven't seen it drop from Byakko in a while.
Feet: I really have no idea what MNK's where in the feet for WS's. LOL

See? I don't really need that much more, except for to get a Black Belt, which is going to be a toughie. Looking to leach items off of KS99 runs and HNM LS's now, so if anyone is interested in selling them, I am interested in buying. :)

Oh and my MNK is now 27. LOL
