I Feel Like Chicken Tonight~

Jojax and Gruive have once again been busy little Sky-bees collecting God triggers. Along with their little band of trigger farmers they managed to get the triggers needed to pop Suzaku.
Off to Ru'Aun Gardens we go. Tonight we were joined by Haloneous (BLM). Other attendants were: Lenor (NIN/DRK), Kamos (PLD/NIN), Hiish (NIN/WAR), Lunakitty (BLM), Gruive (BLU/THF), Jojax (RDM/WHM), Courval (RNG/NIN), Igneusnex (DRK/THF), Tsukai (BLU/NIN), Kico-bot (Tamahiyo), and Arroh (RDM/DRK).

Apparently there's quite a huge difference in difficulty between Genbu and Suzaku. With only twelve people, we didn't know what to expect. Some people were expecting the worst. Others were a bit wary about having PLD/NIN and NIN/DRK tanks. We managed to do pretty well for a bunch of Sky nubcakes :3
Hiish popped the birdie and Igneusnex promptly got stomped on. We managed to get the big bad bird stablised until the birdie used its two hour move (Chainspell nuke-ga) and Kamos got stomped on. Luckily we had three tanks.

It took us a while to re-establish hate control. Everything else went smoothly after that.
Unfortunately, Suzaku wasn't in a generous mood and we got almost bugger all in terms of drops.
Neptunal Abjuration: Feet went to Hiish. Suzaku's seal went to Jojax for safe-keeping.

Congratulations everyone and good job!! \(^ ^)/

I wanna be a Roc Star~

Being an ordinary Social Linkshell that happen to have enough veterans to "do stuff", we usually ignore the calls of High-levelled or 24-hour-pop Notorious Monsters or because more often than not, they're a pain in the butt to deal with.

Hours, upon hours of camping against other HNM linkshells who like to trash-talk and use hacks and bots to get the upper hand - {No, Thanks.}

But Snoop happened to have the time of death, and no one was about for ages, so why not?
And so, who ever was free gathered together to take on the big bad birdy. Arroh and I were the first ones to arrive. With Snoop's "mage-bot" (Winney) in tow, we opened the Banishing Gates up to the Sauromugue Champaign and managed to claim Roc without any problems.

Shortly after Kariko, Marzanna and Keyne arrived to assist the group.

We took it down without much drama and were rewarded with Reraise, Vile Elixir, a Crimson Blade and Damascus Ingot!

Incidentally, we got the claim again with some outside help - including a Thief with Treasure Hunter 4 - and nothing of interest dropped.

Which goes to show what a SHAM Treasure Hunter really is....

Saturday Night Limbus: Central Apollyon!

After some extra Apollyon runs by some eager Limbus beavers, we managed to get another set of Central Apollyon chips. Time to have another go at Proto-Omega.

Today we are joined by: Lenor (NIN/DRK), Lunakitty (BLM), Jojax (RDM), Gruive (BLU), Marzanna (BRD), Igneusnex (DRG), Vashanti (WHM), Drargen (RDM), Kamos (BLM), Haplo (NIN), Stinkypuppy (WHM), Kariko (DRK), Tamahiyo (RDM), Arroh (afk PLD) , Bigawkward (MNK) and newcomer Tsukai (BLU).

Fifteen people. Our runs sure are getting more popular these days.
The NIN/DRK main tank tonight was Haplo. I was "supervising" (Gunpod duty). Proved to be a bit harder as NIN/DRK though. Igneusnex unfortunately got eaten by a Gunpod before I managed to get its attention. There weren't too many Gunpods to look out for though, we were going for the win.

Overall the fight went very smoothly. It was a clear and decisive victory. We'll probably try to farm him for Gunpods next time.

Omega was kind of stingy that night though. Homam Manopolas for Kamos and Arroh. Gunpod dropped White Rivet which went to Kamos. Everyone else got 1 Ancient Beastcoin each.
Congratulations everyone!! \(^ ^)/
