A good night, the best in a long time.

Busy weekend, most of which I can not talk about because I have made a blood pact with the other people that were involved to never mention it. Or at least never mention it until it becomes common knowledge. But let just say that we found Nirvana this weekend. It was a good place, a fine place, the land of milk and honey. This is all I can speak of it, I already feel the gaze of watchful eyes falling upon me.

On to the things that I can speak about without fear of a sniper blowing my brains out. To start, a bit of a recap but I wanted to get a pic of Ashhhhh with his new Fortitude Torque. We did more Jailers this weekend but no more Torques for us. :( It will be nice to have Kallo coming to events because he is a full time THF and we don't have to worry about not having TH without giving up mage jobs.

Salvage finally gave up some 35's this weekend on two different runs. :) Don't get two excited though, because two of the drops were the 35's for the Marduk hands which aren't that amazing, but are still a move in the right direction. On the first run we got the first set of Enlil's kolluks which went to Hiryo. :) It is his first piece of Salvage gear and he likes how they look so much that he doesn't want to give them up for the Marduk's piece. LOLThe second run that we did was another Arrapago run and again the Archaic Chariot was a generous, in fact more generous than it ever has been before. Two drops from it, and both of them that could be used immediately because Skur had come to a Rakuen run the night before and had gotten both of the free lot 25 pieces to match up the 35's that we got on Sunday night.
Another pair of Enlil's Kolluks and a set of Freya's Ledelsens. Skur already has his Skadi's Jambeaux and I am sure is running around while them as we speak. He was definitely in the "Salvage daze" last night. That kind of daze that you get into after a great Salvage run where you have finally completed a piece that you have always wanted. The same happened to me when I finally got my Usukane 35 legs. :) Hopefully we are entering one of those phases where we get a couple of runs where at least a 35 piece drops.

Ok, back to my gear run down from last week, and its finally time for the interesting jobs, not jobs that you and I already know about.

The TP build:

Main: Perdu Voulge
Sub: Pole Strap
Ammo: Bomb Core
Head: Walahra Turban
Neck: Peacock Charm
Left Earring: Assault Earring
Right Earring: Brutal Earring
Body: Haubergeon +1
Hands: Dusk Gloves
Left Ring: Ecphoria Ring
Right Ring: Rajas Ring
Back: Amemet Mantle +1
Waist: Swift Belt
Legs: Byakko's Haidate
Feet: Dusk Ledelsens

Now, this is my dream set up. I have most of the gear already, but I still need to get the Dusk Ledelsens which are going to run me a pretty penny. The other replacement piece is the Ecphoria Ring. Now I have hemmed and hawed over this decision but I can't really think of a place even in Assaults/Salvage where the bonuses from the Ulthalam's Ring would outweigh the "haste" given by eliminating one swing to 100TP. Now, this assumes that I am using /SAM which again it would be hard to justify using another subjob except in rare cases. In the case of of another sub like /NIN or /THF I will be using the Ulthalam's Ring instead of the Ecphoria Ring. I also need the Perdu Voulge which is going to require quite a bit of meriting but so is maxing out my WAR merits to make this set-up shine, so I think I am ok with that.

My WAR WS gear is going to take even more research so I think I will go over that tomorrow. There are several slots that I have some concern about but I can go over those at that time.

You forgot something important. Rather than buying silly dusk pants, you are saving up to buy my cursed slacks -1. Everyone needs cursed slacks -1.
