CoP Airship + Parrying Skillupz!

I haven’t been posting for awhile, was stressed out dealing with emo’s, anyhow!~ Time for some updates~

Sky/Sea in a wk for Cus

Well not exactly from nothing to everything, but Vazhl -> Sea and ZM5 -> 13 in less than a week :) Pretty much 1/1 for all of the fights except moblin (2 tries).

Airship BC, CoP Cap 60, Mammets, Omega and Ultima, Maiev Taru FFXI of Fenrir Server

I have to say… blu in this bc, is nice nice :) Headbutt was casting every now and then, stunning random JA’s and crap, buying a lot of time. We didn’t even see that many nasty AoE got off :)

Correct party setup helps :)

Leviathan and Shiva Prime fight, Maiev Ciermel, FFXI Taru of Fenrir Server, Cus

Practicing 2boxing again :) Did a few runs to get Cus his Evoker’s ring, and lol to the Shiva screenshot, looks like a Man + Shiva = Manva :)

Parry Skillup!

is boring…

Maiev's Parrying Skillup, 193, Parry Skillup FFXI of Fenrir Server

I’d say… with full damage reduction gear and a Taco, I can reduce the damage down to less than 20/hit from Korrigan / Puck..

Doesn’t need top of the line equipment to skillup parry. IMO, the most important pieces of gear needed to do this is…

  • Jelly ring
  • Umbra / Cheviot Cape
  • Terra / Earth Staff.
  • Gil (to buy Tav. Tacos)
  • AF1 Gloves (Parrying skill), Parrying Torque
  • Warrior Subjob (at least have defender)

So here’s how you do it. Go to some Onions camp (if you are new to this, start with Mourouche near Aquarius). Buff yourself with Pro 4 and Phalanx (all others if you want to, but those are the two important ones)

Voke 1, take out your weapon out, hit it and face it! Here’s a few tip to make sure you won’t get interrupted during recast of any spell.

  • Keep Phalanx up. Taking damage less than 10 (in my experience), lowers the chance of being interrupted significantly. I can be getting hit from 7 mourouche but if damage was lower than 10, then I can usually get stoneskin up
  • Defender always up
  • Pro 4 must remain on
  • Keep food on :)

With these in mind, stoneskin can usually go off for mourouche parry skillup. Mourouche shouldn’t even use your convert, its very safe to go solo parrying skillup.

Parrying above 180 is significantly slower since you no longer hit by 7 Mourouche but just 1 Korrigan :/ I’ve tried doing Korrigan with bard, full defense gear and Minuet, its possible to pull it down to 0 damage, but I find it equally good just curing yourself with Cure3, so soloing the last 20 levels (180-200) isn’t bad either.
Rate of skillup would be.. 0.2-0.5/hr! It is a bitch to skill but… at least i think its fun :)

I did some other interesting things too :O, finishing up ToAU mission, soloing Khamira 13 just haven’t had the time to edit it. Its a very simple BC to be soloed by rdm, didn’t even bring any medicine, special gear for it.

Oh yea, did you ever wonder the haste effect, or the amount of recast lowered by wearing Loquac. Earring? Here’s a fully compiled list on BlueGartr. [More details…]

Clicking around, I found a EU linkshell that uses a blog as their way of posting progress. I wanted to create something like this back then for GW, didn’t last very long until we have to swap pearl so ugh :x But here it is…

    Parry skillups >:|

    Something you might want to try (maybe you already do) is instead of subbing war for defender, sub blu and use cocoon for even more defense. With rdm fast cast traits it should be ready to use again before it wears off.

    A different way to raise parry/shield that I’ve found that I love is Chigoe! They seem to have a 95% accuracy rate, no matter what your evasion is, so less hits are evaded, plus they attack really fast, and double/triple quite often. Damage is also less than the onions in B.tree so you typically take less than 10 even on the high level ones that are spawned from marids out in woodlands. The chigoe from those marids are lv.72-77 and *should* be able to cap rdm parry and shield, just need to get a friend to help spawn them for you, face them, and engage a monster far away so you don’t accidentally crit and kill your skillup dispenser :D

    Parry :/
    I was going to level NIN to 75 and hope I get to the RDM parry cap on the way > >;;;

    Blue colored skills always make me happy…(Divine….damn you).

    Reply to Jilliana:

    First of all :) thx for droppin by

    I’ve tried /blu, infact, I’ve leveled blu for that reason, but I found….
    Cocoon wears off every minute :(

    with /war defender, and phalanx lasting 3 minute (both are), I can cast phalanx, defender, look away for a minute (or go pee), come back and only be missing 200-300hp.

    I can even look away from the screen and do some readings, cast a cure4 every minute. but with cocoon, you must stare at the screen almost all day. you get around 50 more def bonus, works out to be around 6-7 dmg reduction overall… but I guess if you are doing it for over 6-7 hours, /war defender would be easier for you, at least for me, so I can surf and not worry about dead or recast cocoon that frequently

    Speaking of Chigoes, I’ve tired them, they won’t level after 180, but then when I wanted to try em, I was already 180 so I didn’t know if they were good or not :< i heard a lot of people level it that way, even Tsunade cap his shield on it! speaking of engaging monster differently =P (or far away) I do that :), in fact that's what I do^^ hehe, cure bomb ftw! (was 2boxing a whm to cure for tat reason, press cure5 every minute, back to academic readinsg :)
