    Thunder3? That is a bit of a wrench in things. Lightningday is 2 days back from Darksday and further if it was Firesday. Furthermore, neither Darksday nor Firesday (if it was that day when you reclaimed, idk) have any proper relationship with Thunder unless I'm missing something... except Darkness skillchain property (in Darksday's case)...

    When triggering yellow !!'s, do people usually stop TPing on the monster to avoid spells hitting during WS? I've seen talk of not being able to trigger red !!'s when a monster is WSing... and we have not had great luck triggering yellow on most NMs despite cycling through all spells of the day/prevoius day/next day.

    Even with only two people hitting the monster and monster HP>75%, landing longer casting time spells when the monster is not readying a TP move takes some luck. Below 25%, it's essentially impossible to intentionally land spells even with only two melees. This is one definite advantage to lowmanning things with mages if you're going for upgrade items.

    My group usually only has 5 for most NMs (MNK, WHM, BRD, THF, BLM). When we have extra people we do make them hang back, but not because of TP feed. Some of the weaker NMs just don't have that much HP. If you let the extras fight, you run the risk of killing it before you can trigger grellow.

    Somewhat strange results last night. Kharon's trigger was Fire 3 on Darksday, 3 pops in a row. After those 3, we popped it something like 7 times but were unable to find a trigger again until 21:00 Firesday - Stonega 3.
    Pallid Percy refused to give us !! on many earthsday pops (I know, it spams spells and WS) but gave it up for Aero4 on windsday and Blizzard4 on iceday.

    Can a spell weakness be picked that the mob is immune to, and if so, does it work if it is resisted?

    Such as paralyze being pick on a NM immune to paralysis.

    Anyone got any tips for triggering red !! on Ironclad Pulverizer? Various threads have said that there's a chance his attacks may be considered 'abilities' in that it may prevent !! from procing. So how have you all been doing it?

    1- Koki is light
    2- Mob's resistance is irrelevant

    WS immediately after one of his swings. If your melee are hurr, stun immediately after one of his swings and ws while it's stunned.

    Can you trigger !! when it's just the head or does it have to be in the body?

    Cirein-croinx2 popped on firesday. Grellow !! from drain on #1 and dispel on #2.

    Nonno popped on Earthday. Grellow !! from Fire 4.

    This is very frustrating <.<..
    Tried cept-kamuy with every possible BLM, RDM, BRD spells 3 times and no luck ( and it was on earthday so .. dark spells were not an issue)

    So really if u want 100% ensure grellow !! you need...

    BLM, RDM, SCH, NIN, WHM, BRD at least????

    (If that's the case it crushes your low-man dream opportunities to get more than 1 seal coin etc...)

    BLM, SCH, RDM, NIN, BRD, BLU as long as you time it for the middle of the elemental week.

    Check out how much magic BLU has and what elements they are:
    http://wiki.ffxiclopedia.org/wiki/Blue_Mage

    If you were only going to bring two players to a middle-of-the-week fight, BLU/NIN and BLM/RDM would be the two you should bring. Blue magic, Black Magic, Ni/Ichi spells, and low level debuffs.

    Remember that you can't proc a !! during a TP move.

    Aside from that freak Thunder III on darksday, there appears to be a pattern of triggering !! on the day before, of, or after the time of the claim. Has anyone cross referenced this with other "times" such as seasons and moons?
