Righty, we need to do a run of the black coffin to get Tal thorugh it after that we can get going with the Pirate Ship BCs!

So who is willing to help?

I should be free on Tuesday night next week though likely to be around 21:00.

Yeah if you just go to the NM fight location and click on the headstone you can get the coin, no fight needed.

Thanks guys. Tuesday is fine for me, looking forward to this BCNM.

Last night fight against Jazaraat was challenging but once Tsing had identified the problem and I was erasing when needed we managed to win on the second attempt, allbeit with not much to spare. Top stuff - thanks Tsing :happy:

I can help out if need be but if you get other people volunteering to help they can go ahead of me as, well, ToAU mission BCs really aren't that interesting (CoP missions are far away 20x more involving). Story CS are good and entertaining but the actual meat of the missions are so disappointing.

I remember preparing to go into this expecting a tough, challenging fight. In the end I got something about on a par with soloing a level 1 Tunnel Worm in West Ronfaure.

The pussies who whined and bitched about CoP (thankfully none of Rargh best I can remember) have probably killed off any likelihood of ever getting an expansion of the quality of Chains of Promathia ever again.

"waaahhhh, it's too hard"

"whiiiinnnneeee, there are level caps"

"soooobbbbbb, I have to actually prepare and farm before missions"

Sorry i seem to have massively digressed and ruptured my spleen. Move along...

...forgot to mention, is the XBox Live downtime going to effect anyone for this tonight? Looks like its due back up at 14:00 PST which is 10pm UK I think ~ I guess that will work ok.

I will be around after 10 I think if you need me, be good to get everyone caught up. One more fight then you guys catch me and we can move to the current end of the story, after that start on pirate ship BCs.

OT (I’m sorry) but Dj mentioned Dynamis. Can I just ask what time the 2:30pm EST time is for us? I know it’s normally 5 hours (so 7:30pm) but I’m unsure if the recent clock change may affect that.

Daragon

I should be ok to make a start on this at 10 - I do need to clear the NM fight around Nashmau first however but that shouldn't take long if I get help with it, then its just a case of home point and off to Naja for the BC.

Hopefully will find a driver for my 360 pad so I can use it with my PC, I really am not used to playing this primarily with a keyboard.

The XP version of the driver mentioned on the FFXI Vista thread will work nicely with the 360 pad Dara.

My PC won't even detect the pad, so the driver won't help me much. What I'm going to do is to get on FFXI via PC now, clear this NM I'm up to and then hope to God Xbox live comes back on at the scheduled time.

There's no way I'm doing Black Coffin without a gamepad.

Well things didn't go entirely to plan last night due to Live being down for an extended amount of time and the PLD not arriving from Dynamis until gone 11pm. Unfortunately he was also far to keen to pop the NM and I started the fight with no food and on half MP, and without discussing the nasty Def Down. As we have found out the Fomor hits hard and without proper preparation DJ and the PLD both died. Fortunately Gravity was our friend again and Dara and I managed to zone. Second time was much better but poor old DJ took another death - sorry man - once you had the Def Down and hate you were down in a couple of hits before I could Erase and Cure. Still, all sorted in the end and everyone is ready for the BC now.

Thanks big time for coming to help DJ. What I will say is that its fights like these that make me (us) appreciate what f**king great tanks some of LS folk like Tsing and Rare are....

Except it will probably be the computer doing the touching again - where would be the fun in that?

Back to the topic, do we have another day set aside for this yet? Just got my CS from Naja so I'm all set.

I'll check in with everyone tonight and see when is good for them, if we all happen to be on then we can do it there and then. Not sure what time I will be on however as we have visitors later.

Indeed, was on Tuesday but nobody else who is involved was so couldn't do / organise. I can fit in pretty much any evening so I guess its down to people that have other LS activities...

djtickle
05-04-2007, 11:50 AM
