I started this more many years ago but like many people gave up at the Alexandrite stage even though I completed every other objective. Last year SE allowed us to enter Salvage alone so I decided to give it one more push. 11 months later I am done. For anyone who cares, no, no exploits were used. In fact I bought less than 2k of the alex. I farmed with Badstreak and my mule Starcrossed daily.
I really wanted to finish this to honor all of the former FFXI who helped me with the objectives over the years, especially my own Salvage shell from 2008 to 2010. Doing original salvage more than 800 times taught me about perseverance with its wonderful 5% drop rate on 35s.
Paulus, Billeh, Jonnady, Jefant, Grenseal, Darkzell were among my main salvage buddies. I also want to thank all of the people who helped me lead the charge against the TAU Beastman Kings. Those things were EVIL back in the 75 era.
I'm still struggling to get through the magian trials since I don't play full time, but I'm finally almost through the birds trial. I can't even imagine what these were like before they reduced the requirements. @_@ At least Leaden Salute builds amber light, so the abyssea farming sessions are profitable.
Thanks to everyone that helped me find H-P Bayld especially Fiv~
grats! another vibrator completed!
GEO's just too strong
Grats 2x Idris~
We all gotta server hop on the same server and do something silly like 5x Geo/Dnc and Whm. Do... +Att, -Def, +Acc, -Eva, +Def, -Att, +MEva, -MAcc, Haste, and Refresh. Wouldn't be as fast as super buffed real DDs, but I can't imagine anything at all being a threat lol.
You should allow me to serverhop on the same server so I can BRD/DNC and finally put my Carns to good use >:D
