haha thanks. also got the coil tank head to drop. i have so much accuracy now its stupid. lol. 555 after food. the highest acc fights in the game need 515. i think i'm set for acc for awhile. =P

not sure whats is actually in the 4th chest, but i think if it appears, its either the minion, gemstone, or both. only once so far did i see either of these and it was both. and of course i lowrolled on both =/ the main chest seems to have a piece of gear plus a chance for UAT, oil, or both. i've seen all three combinations of this.

Oh I thought the UAT was from the 4th chest. Didn't know it was the main chest. So the main chest always has 2 loots then? If so that's cool. Does the minion and gem count towards your loot cap for the week or is it separate?

And grats on tank head. That thing looks so awesome. I really want it but not gonna try farming T5 for it though since I still need to worry about clearing it lol I'm sitting at like 463 accuracy right now. Noticed I was missing every once in a while in T4 so I need more. I was doing fine till I got Allagan pants and boots. The Darklight pants had +43 accuracy but Allagan pants and boots don't have any so I lost all of that. That's when I bought Noct ring to get some of it back lol That'll probably be the first thing I upgrade if I get an oil drop that way I can buy another weathered Noct ring and that should give me plenty of accuracy to get through at least T5. Still need to finish off farming for Allagan gloves too and that'll give me another +5 accuracy over Darklight.

no, the chest isn't always 2 loots. it can just have the gear, or it can have oil, UAT, or both. so 1, 2, or 3 items. depending on RNG. the minion and gemstone are independent of the loot lockout. so feel free to lot on these without penalty.

its the coil 2 head i got. i already had the T5 one =P for tank, you should have about 475 for T4, 484ish for T5. 494 for T6-7, 515 for T8-9.

Yeah we ran it again tonight with a full party and the 4th chest spawned and it had the minion in it. Sadly I lost. Crazy how the entire raid rolls on 1 chest. Dude that won it rolled a 99 lol Oil dropped too with the main chest and somebody snatched it up so that was good.

And yeah I suppose I should have guessed it was the High Allagan head but you just said coil and when I see coil I think T1-5 since that's all I've done lol

lol awesome. sucks that you didn't get it though. nice to know that its not extremely rare, though. sucks on the roll, but thats how it goes. was a decent day for me. did a lot of ramuh ex practice with the fc. that fight is rough. requires a LOT of coordination between all the members of the party. but a lot of fun. also, the static did T8. got to 1.4 percent before he enraged. soooooo frustrating. at the end we had 2 dps dead or we would have the win =/ at least we're close. its just depressing to get that close...

I really need to get moving on my story. I started the first quest for 2.3 haven't done anything since. I wanna get to Ramuh finally. Now that you don't have to clear Titan and Ifrit anymore for Levi and Mog King EX I wanna give those a shot too. And that sucks you got so close and couldn't get it done. You should get it soon though. It's a little disheartening to hear that you guys still haven't downed T8 yet and you're a pretty active FC from the sounds of it. We can't even beat Titan so how long is it gonna take us to get through Second Coil? Maybe by 2.6 or 3.0 we'll have it done :P

levi and mog are both relatively easy, once you get the hang of them. nothing crazy like titan. just about everything gives a decent amount of time to move. i actually healed mog successfully a couple days ago, so that made me happy. lol. did a little more ramuh, but that dps check in the adds phase is brutal. i think we're gonna need to stack a team to get past it. on the bright side, the more people get used to the fight, the more dps they'll be able to put out. so it'll get a little easier to make soon.

yeah, our fc has 4 coil groups. i think we're one of 2 that hasn't passed it yet. but being that close is a good sign. we were doing it a little more yesterday, but got defeated by the lag boss. and we have 2 people that're gonna be out for a week now. so after that, hopefully we can get some good attempts in. we'll still run in the meantime, but pug's are very hit or miss. we'll just have to not be afraid to let them go if they're holding us back.

So far so good on the new patch. Before work yesterday I went and unlocked all the new dungeons and started on my daily hunts and did my daily roulettes so that I could run the new dungeons with ym friends when I got home, and I was without cable or internet for the entire night because of some stupid mini storm we had I guess knocked out Comcast's power so no service. Got it back up this morning though around 10:30 which was lucky because I still had a FATE monster to kill for my daily hunt and he spawned with like 15 minutes left till reset lol Ran through Syrcus Tower for the first time. We wiped on the first boss like 5 times but other than that it was really fun. Managed to get pants for my WHM/SCH out of it too which was awesome since I was still rocking i70's and had been saving my soldiery for Daystar but now I can spend it other needs. I should be good for tonight to give the rest of the new dungeons a go so I'm excited. Hullbreaker Isle looks so awesome.

yeah, i'm enjoying it so far, i just wish Syrcus tower would give me a freakin oil already :( i've ran through it like 8 times already =/ lol

i'm bout ready to just take the caster body and be done with it this week. that thing looks freakin sexy! =P

hullbreaker isle is fun, just too long imo.

Yeah the caster body does look sexy. I want it but I already have the Weathered Evenstar body so I'm gonna work on other things first, namely tank gloves and healer belt. Those are the last 2 things I need to be all i90-100 on my BLM/BRD/PLD/WHM. Then I can work on getting head and hands for my BLM so I can finally get myself all i100 on that. Then I can worry about farming for oils to upgrade my stuff. Wish it dropped sands too but that might make it a little too easy for people to get i110.

We wound up doing Hullbreaker Isle and Tam-Tara HM last night. Hullbreaker was really pretty and I thought the bosses were funny so I enjoyed it well enough, but yeah it did feel kinda long. Tam-Tara was awesome though. I loved the vibe in there, the music, background story (that bitch is craaaaazy), and some cool fights. Probably gonna be my new farming place since they cut down the soldiery for Brayflox. Thing we're doing Stone Vigil Hard tonight and I'm going through Syrcus Tower again with my FC. One of our usual healers wants to go BLM so he can get some gear for it so I'm healing ST tonight. Hope I don't kill everyone :P

since i'm doing coil 2, i need to keep my gear as updated as possible so i'm just focusing on the oils til my right side is all i110. i really wish the oil and UAT were on a separate lockout from the i100 gear. since i already have the ring upgraded and got the bracelet from T7, i think i need 3 on pld. or ideally i'll get lucky tonight and get the earrings to drop tonight. then i'll just need to upgrade the shield and neck for my right side. at some point i think they said they'll be adding sands to ST. i'm guessing 2.35. healing isn't that bad in it. i've done it several times and i'm not even that good of a healer. lol

for the new dungeons, you don't need to spam one to cap. i think if you just do the roulette each day you'll cap that way. or at least get you close. really liked hullbreaker. all the bosses seemed really original.

also, my summoner's mad moxxi cosplay is pretty much amazing =P

Dude totally. The UAT dropped when I did it and got my pants and my roll was high enough to beat everyone too but I got locked out because I had already taken gear. Hopefully you're right about them adding sands with a future patch. I'm not too worried about healing it since I think I'm a pretty good healer, but I also don't wanna singlehandedly cause a 24-man wipe :P We'll see but I should be fine though.

I stopped doing my roulette a while ago since I felt like I was cheating myself out of myth doing it that way, and I was gearing so many classes that I couldn't afford to pass it up. Now that I'm basically done with using myth for gear I don't mind if I miss out on some so yeah I'll probably just go back to doing my roulette every day. And I'm working on a sexy schoolgirl glamour for my SCH now. I've got my WHM glamoured to look like the pope too lol I'm just patiently waiting till someone crafts the new couerl bikini so I can buy it and glamour that onto everything.

lol. i wish i wanted the UAT, but both my pld and war have i100 weps already, so there's better uses. plus i'll most likely be the one in our group getting it from T7 this week since i let just about everyone else get it first and have the tomes saved up. i've seen the oil twice so far, i've rolled like a 16 and 34 lol. the 34 i actually "should" have won. an fc-mate was there and was gonna pass if i got a decent roll. but with a 34, he assumed i wouldn't get it so he lotted. he rolls like a 65. somehow i actually would have been highest roll. everyone else had lower. lol. he felt like an ass afterwards. =P i'm thinking if i don't get it soon, i may just suck it up and take the healer body.

Yeah it it gets to be like Sunday and you still haven't gotten it yet then yeah I saw go for something else and try again for the oil next week. Better to get something than to farm for an entire week and end up with nothing.

yeah, it'll suck if it comes to that. but if it happens, it happens.

Finally got my oil! ended up being about 10 runs total. lol. rolled an 82. next closest was 81. was a bit close there. now to rub down Godbert. :3 errr....i mean....time to get my shield. yeah, thats it. shield. totally what i meant.

Lol grats. I'll probably start farming for oil myself pretty soon. Maybe another 3-4 weeks of i100 drops I wanna get and then I can start worrying about oil or if I see it drop and haven't gotten anything else yet for the week then I'll go for it. How often has the 4th chest dropped when you've done it? Is it most of the time or rare? And is the 4th chest only oil and UAT or can it have other stuff too?

haha thanks. also got the coil tank head to drop. i have so much accuracy now its stupid. lol. 555 after food. the highest acc fights in the game need 515. i think i'm set for acc for awhile. =P

not sure whats is actually in the 4th chest, but i think if it appears, its either the minion, gemstone, or both. only once so far did i see either of these and it was both. and of course i lowrolled on both =/ the main chest seems to have a piece of gear plus a chance for UAT, oil, or both. i've seen all three combinations of this.

Tam-Tara was awesome though. I loved the vibe in there, the music, background story (that bitch is craaaaazy), and some cool fights. Probably gonna be my new farming place since they cut down the soldiery for Brayflox. Thing we're doing Stone Vigil Hard tonight and I'm going through Syrcus Tower again with my FC. One of our usual healers wants to go BLM so he can get some gear for it so I'm healing ST tonight. Hope I don't kill everyone :P

since i'm doing coil 2, i need to keep my gear as updated as possible so i'm just focusing on the oils til my right side is all i110. i really wish the oil and UAT were on a separate lockout from the i100 gear. since i already have the ring upgraded and got the bracelet from T7, i think i need 3 on pld. or ideally i'll get lucky tonight and get the earrings to drop tonight. then i'll just need to upgrade the shield and neck for my right side. at some point i think they said they'll be adding sands to ST. i'm guessing 2.35. healing isn't that bad in it. i've done it several times and i'm not even that good of a healer. lol

for the new dungeons, you don't need to spam one to cap. i think if you just do the roulette each day you'll cap that way. or at least get you close. really liked hullbreaker. all the bosses seemed really original.

also, my summoner's mad moxxi cosplay is pretty much amazing =P

Dude totally. The UAT dropped when I did it and got my pants and my roll was high enough to beat everyone too but I got locked out because I had already taken gear. Hopefully you're right about them adding sands with a future patch. I'm not too worried about healing it since I think I'm a pretty good healer, but I also don't wanna singlehandedly cause a 24-man wipe :P We'll see but I should be fine though.

I stopped doing my roulette a while ago since I felt like I was cheating myself out of myth doing it that way, and I was gearing so many classes that I couldn't afford to pass it up. Now that I'm basically done with using myth for gear I don't mind if I miss out on some so yeah I'll probably just go back to doing my roulette every day. And I'm working on a sexy schoolgirl glamour for my SCH now. I've got my WHM glamoured to look like the pope too lol I'm just patiently waiting till someone crafts the new couerl bikini so I can buy it and glamour that onto everything.

lol. i wish i wanted the UAT, but both my pld and war have i100 weps already, so there's better uses. plus i'll most likely be the one in our group getting it from T7 this week since i let just about everyone else get it first and have the tomes saved up. i've seen the oil twice so far, i've rolled like a 16 and 34 lol. the 34 i actually "should" have won. an fc-mate was there and was gonna pass if i got a decent roll. but with a 34, he assumed i wouldn't get it so he lotted. he rolls like a 65. somehow i actually would have been highest roll. everyone else had lower. lol. he felt like an ass afterwards. =P i'm thinking if i don't get it soon, i may just suck it up and take the healer body.

So far so good on the new patch. Before work yesterday I went and unlocked all the new dungeons and started on my daily hunts and did my daily roulettes so that I could run the new dungeons with ym friends when I got home, and I was without cable or internet for the entire night because of some stupid mini storm we had I guess knocked out Comcast's power so no service. Got it back up this morning though around 10:30 which was lucky because I still had a FATE monster to kill for my daily hunt and he spawned with like 15 minutes left till reset lol Ran through Syrcus Tower for the first time. We wiped on the first boss like 5 times but other than that it was really fun. Managed to get pants for my WHM/SCH out of it too which was awesome since I was still rocking i70's and had been saving my soldiery for Daystar but now I can spend it other needs. I should be good for tonight to give the rest of the new dungeons a go so I'm excited. Hullbreaker Isle looks so awesome.

yeah, i'm enjoying it so far, i just wish Syrcus tower would give me a freakin oil already :( i've ran through it like 8 times already =/ lol

i'm bout ready to just take the caster body and be done with it this week. that thing looks freakin sexy! =P

hullbreaker isle is fun, just too long imo.

Yeah the caster body does look sexy. I want it but I already have the Weathered Evenstar body so I'm gonna work on other things first, namely tank gloves and healer belt. Those are the last 2 things I need to be all i90-100 on my BLM/BRD/PLD/WHM. Then I can work on getting head and hands for my BLM so I can finally get myself all i100 on that. Then I can worry about farming for oils to upgrade my stuff. Wish it dropped sands too but that might make it a little too easy for people to get i110.
