    Yesterday was pretty rough. Sitting in (apparently trash) 119 gear so I went to various -Gates maps to get some merits. I'm only at ~880 accuracy before food LOL. Can't hit anything lmao.

    Edit: did a lot of exploration in Escha: Ru'aun for gear. Died to Warden of Faith when Apururu got hit by the Breakga. Also saw that the Escha Byakko Haidate has 20+% Haste on it. Doesn't every piece of melee gear have some sort of haste on it?

    By my count there is roughly 4-7 BG'ers I've seen post in this thread asking about servers, population, etc. Would there be any interest in creating a new BG shell and all of us find the best server for us to do stuff on?

    The Wiki staff is all on Asura for the most part. Most people are in general.

    Pick up an eFlooziesXI pearl in the concierge.

    Yeah that's pretty low acc. Like what tanks sit in and gates zones have boost mob levels

    Most have some but a few have very little and some I think none and nowadays the goal is to cap with only visible gear

    Come to Asura! I just started over a few weeks ago. Then again, I'm not on a whole lot.

    People don't camp NMs.

    Waiting is rarely an issue, mostly just ambuscade but only while new or when everyone is last minute soloing their seal Saturday night. Otherwise it is pretty instant entry once it cools off. Since nothing special besides gil really comes from there unless you are a new player getting armor then that is also a not an issue, just don't do it when it first comes out for a couple of days.

    Even then, any potential population negatives are far outweighed by the positives on Asura.

    As a population increases so does the interaction between special needs players

    It is no different for any server if it had the same levels active, IMO.

    The alternative is being alone which ends up being worse for just about anything that matters.

    If you're building Empy weapons I could see competition being an issue, but that really only takes 1~2 others there to slow you down a lot. Otherwise, I would definitely say Asura is the best for your monthly fee. I couldn't see myself on a server with 300 people and never getting anything done.

    We have a few but most the people responding are mocking them or telling them to shut. Actually posted a few of the funnier ones. We had one get so mad he eventually ended up making a mule with a name almost exactly the same name as a guy in my ls to impersonate him and then started shouting on it and trying to get into ambuscade pts at level 50 with no subjob lol

    In Dynamis, can you get 100's to drop from regular mobs? Seems only NM's drop em.

    Only if you lock subs and proc white. So basically only NMs since that isn't worth doing.

    Is it even worth getting the TE's then? Is it best to just spam the NM's?

    A white proc is just a 1 or 2% occurrence off a red proc when your sub is locked. You need the TEs regardless. Locking your sub isn't something you do unless you are on a job that doesnt need one (like DNC).

    Use DNC trusts to easily proc JAs.

    TEs are essential for getting drops ,otherwise you'll get a couple, but itll be a total waste of time

    pup used to be good too. Not sure how it compares now might have to use regular original animator lol. But as you said trusts kind of remove the player from needing to do much besides engage so subs wont matter much for anyone really
