Sure, I'd be down. Need to level PLD for awareness anyways. We can also see if we can get some FC buds to help.

Cool! I just need to eat dinner and I'm set. I'll be ready somewhere between 19:30 and 20:00 EST, so in less than one hour. My character name is "Zephyr Alizee".

Hmmm... Well the skin today cost me 5 million to craft with my FC. Actual plot was about 4 million. Faust dummy was another 3 million. Trees were at least 20 million... you get the idea. It adds up very quickly xD

Overall maybe 40-50 million?

Haha. If it makes you feel better I only have about 100k gil left after this. Most of my money comes from raiding and sales. Can be a bit slow sometimes especially now we're at the end of tier

Probably should have waited to SB when stuff drops down but eh. Can't help myself xD

Out of our first 8 kills, we only got 3 weapons for jobs we actually use (and one of these was the terrible DRK GS, which would only see some use on A12 if it wasn't a terrible weapon). To this day, I still haven't seen Daggers drop.

It's training mode for grouped content and mechanics. Can usually do them in a few mins, but queue times for them suck most of the time if you're a dps.

You can skip them but at a certain point in the 2.x series I think it forces you to do some of them to continue the main story quest.

I usually roll a DPS in mmos, often a caster, but man i'm just not feeling THM. It's so much less fun to play so far then CNJ or ARC. Only putting time in it for the cross class stuff.

Why are fiend saps so expensive on market? I got one and plan to sell it for 1mil because ppl have it for like 4 mil or even 8mil lol

Also time to do Ultima weekly! I'm almost caught up gear wise. I have shire pants and body and my accessories are almost all 270. I just need to get weapom and then the grind for everything else will be okay.

Because it's a fairly rare drop that you need 2 of for an attractive piece of furniture. Basically, supply and demand.

Just went back with call back campaign.

Surprised on how the raid finder works. Queuing for old extreme (nidd, soph) takes forever. It seems people are only using raid finder for latest (zurvan) for non-clear.

Some other FC members also having the same issue. They can't clear stuff from Thordan ex.

Setting up PF will need some time and we can't play for long hours per session.

I hope they will move the old extremes to DF like usual.

Blm even at 50 is still very simplistic, at 60 you'll hate the job until u get used to it :3

I did my first Palace of the Dead run yesterday with some Gaffers. It was fun! Thanks to Wamberz and two other Gaffers. I went from floor 1 to floor 20 twice, and I went from pugilist level 6 to level 13! That's very fast compared to progression through quests. I will keep playing until I unlock the Monk job for sure. I think I'll get every base job to level 30 too.

Do I lose my aetherpool progression if I change jobs/discipline?

The only way to lose aetherpool levels is if you trade it in for the Padjali or the Kinna weapon. So you can absolutely just save it, level up another job to 60, and instantly get an i255 weapon for it.

Well that is just fantastic. I know what I'll be doing until June, hahaha! It'll also serve as a great venue to listen to podcasts and watch Giant Bomb videos.

How long does it take in general for the Aetherpool gear to reach max level?

Days, not weeks. That being said, highest I've gotten is in the high 80s. It caps at 99, I think.

That really depends on your luck with the silver chests, how often you run it, and how your parties want to play. A lot of people will farm PotD for the potsherds (and therefore grade v materia), and will be less willing to go out of their way for chests unless you specifically ask.

It really won't take too terribly long to hit +99/+99 if you're diligent about running it. Be mindful that you'll stop getting levels from chests after a while if you don't move on to later floors.

Ive heard the Xp for below 10 is horrendous but it gets better past that, Im thinking of just playing NIN in there as WAR is pretty dull and annoying to be put with another tank (why??)

Im not sure its fast though, I was getting PLD from 17 to 22 the other day and I literally would level up twice in a dungeon, again when I left the dungeon (daily roulette) then I ran another and I was done.

I really need to learn more about this, Im up to floor 50 on my WAR but people just leg it through for some reason, thought it was all about the Hoard chests

A lot of the stuff in the hoards doesn't really sell for much. In my experience, people won't pass up hoards if Intuition is up, but they also won't go out of their way for them if not. The potsherds, on the other hand, offer you a choice of grade v materia, so you can pick whichever sells for the most on your server. You're also guaranteed at least two for a full 1-100 clear. So the idea is that rushing through means you can cash out sooner. It's not the most efficient thing ever, but it's not a horrible thing to do if you're gonna be leveling in potd anyway.

Just don't be a dick and refuse to leave the cairn if the rest of your party wants to full clear every floor.

In PotD, do all of the sets of 10 floors give about the same XP? Would repeating floors 51-60 5 times give about as much XP as doing 51-100? Looking for some easy XP to get my WAR from 52 > 60.

It progressively increases from 1-10 to 41-50, then 51-60 give the same until 91-100 which is the biggest payout.
