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.

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

Ugh. My FC is never gonna clear Titan. We can't even make it the heart 90% of the time, let alone kill the heart and finish the rest of the fight. People keep dying to landslide and weight of the land which there is no excuse for it to happen every single damn time. Like literally every single run we did Thursday save for maybe 1 we at least one dead DPS by the time the first gaols spawned. Plus a majority of the group is pretty low geared so the DPS was too low even with everyone alive so we wouldn't have beaten it anyway. It sucks cause i'm the best geared DPS we have, but one of our static tanks just had a baby so I've been the fill in tank so missing out on a lot of DPS that would help. I got fed up with wipes and started working on it on my own. Joined 2 separate parties from PF today. First one went ok, second one was really good but we couldn't get it done. In the second group, first run we got to heart but wiped, second run we had the gaolers dead and got Titan around 35-40% and the third run we got him down to about 25%. BLM left in the middle of the 4th run for no reason though and after that wipe the party fell apart. If we could have had 1-2 more good shots I think we would have had it, especially with the increasing echo. So close and yet so far. One of the guys in the second party invited all of us to his Linkshell though so hopefully if I see some of these people on I can join up with them and get it done finally. Don't get me wrong. I love my FC and would never think of leaving since we're all pretty good friends, but man some of our people are just not cut out for this end game stuff and they hold the rest of us back. I'll still help them try and get it done since I do wanna do all this stuff together if we can, but I'm not waiting up for them anymore.

lol. honestly, titan is still one of my favorite fights. imo, the #1 reason people have a problem with it is that they get themselves too worked up over it. if they would just calm down and deal with each mechanic as it comes, they more often than not would have a clear. its really not that hard of a fight. people just panic too easy. what gear are they using? are they spamming coil 1 to try and fix it? are they capping soldiery each week/gearing their main class? if not, you need to have them get their shit together if they want it to be a static group. otherwise, as you said, don't let them hold you back. find another endgame group to run with. still run when you have your scheduled run with these guys, but have another one for serious content. it sounds like their dying not because of gear(though that could help), but because of lack of ability to deal with mechanics. i don't care if you have 20,000 hp. you still have to be able to dodge things like landslide to beat the fight. and assuming people are alive for heart phase, it shouldn't be a problem to clear it. its really not a strict dps check at all. and if you can't even stay alive through the heart phase, good luck post-heart where it gets a lot harder...

Yeah it really isn't that hard of a fight. He uses the same attacks in a set pattern and they're fairly easy to dodge if people would just relax and think straight instead of panicking. They're using a mix of Darklight, crafted, CT gear, and a few T1/T2 drops. I'd guess a majority of our FC is sitting in the low to mid i70 range. Like i72-i76 probably. We occasionally will farm Coil but it seems like most of the time it's for gearing alts instead of focusing on gearing their mains, or the lesser geared people won't be on and the few times they are on they just throw themselves into stuff they can't handle. And the heart phase really hasn't been that big of a DPS check in the groups I've joined in PF that have gotten through it, but when running with my FC and people are still dying because they aren't broken out of gaol in time, it does become a bit of a DPS check. But yeah like you said, I'm gonna try and find another group that I can run the harder stuff with so I can actually progress in the game instead of being stuck in the same spot for weeks or even months because of people in my FC slowing me down. Hoping that second LS I joined is active and I can run with them a lot.

yet more reason why you should come to Balmung ;) =P
