    Only thing that can break the chain is stopping. I await the day someone breaks 1000 because it is possible with enough patience.

    Generally you should post where you get it from when you post a video of someone else's ;;

    And the above poster is certainly right, if you get a group insane enough you could do unlimited chains there.. as the bard i go just crazy doing this, cant do it for that long ><

    I actually didn't get it from KI. I got it from my LS's forums, and there was no source in the post. I was obviously not taking credit for it seeing as... that's not my character. =P

    they have 1500HP, there is a video somewhere of a MNK in one of these parties and he hits it for a 1500 Chi Blast and it drops.

    My bad...was tough to tell in the video. I saw the 2 blm's did 2500 dmg to take it down though.

    I just reread my post and i sounded like i was being an asshole. I didnt mean it like that lol.
    to be honest ive never been to Sea so i have no idea just going by what ive seen around the forums.

    I didn't realize Delekii posted the video on K.I. heh

    And the elementals have around 1400-1500hp, we just use Tier IVs for a sure kill and it doesn't really hurt anything to do so.

    Eh, not really. By the time a Summoner has reacted to it the Black Mages have already killed it and if you don't have Black Mages you don't have a party. No stun will destroy chain from the damage taken by reactive spells, Dark Elementals Sleepga can ruin chain plus you need actual Sleep because everything is 100% resistent to light.

    Here's an idea for those screaming nerf: Fix the retarted mobs.

    Like SE would admit they screwed up somewhere in their own game. Ha.

    elementals and pets give 0 XP and don't count in XP chains?

    i've actually done this same pt (BLM BLM RDM BRD) maybe a couple months ago, and exp per hour (in my experience) was closer to 8.5/9k per hour. I dont think that is terribly impressive exp/hr, i got higher exp/hr from decorative weapons, pre-rng patch. Its actually sorta tough and very drainingly repetitive to do this...
    Any normal 6 man PT (nin mnk rng blm rdm brd - or something) can do very similar exp/hr just by chaining the IT aerns in the area. You just have to have skilled(geared) players and some knowledge of which aern jobs are in each room. You might also actually have to use a SC (/shocked) since these arent the VT weapons everyones got lazy on, and a nice MB to take down certain jobs quickly can be a big plus to the party's efficiency. The only thing im kind of curious about is how well a skilled and nicely geared PLD would do against one of those MNKs w/ bracelets on...

    Anyway - a SMN cant really join the BLM pt because elementals arent terribly weak to physical dmg. also, its pretty risky having an avatar wake it up at a bad time, so that the pt gets a GA3 or sleepga2 or something.
    Also, BLM BLM BLM BRD will not be very good, because these aerns are IT++... as 75blm w/ max enfeeble, pluto's staff, and +37ish enfeeble, im resisted on sleep enough to most deffinitly break a chain, if not wipe the party. Fast cast rdm sleep power, along with refresh and the ability to actually tank the mobs a bit lands a rdm a spot in this pt set up.

    I dont really think that just because a PT is only 4 ppl and they can make a decent amount of exp per hr there is a flaw in the system, but if there -has- to be a change here it would just be to change the elementals to be like the Aern's BST pets - high hp / crappy exp... there may be some valid arguments to nerfing BLM, but this isnt one of them.

    Just get up there with a strong balanced normal pt, and try it out yourself.
