I haven't had time to play and I seriously need to get my mule leveled so she can get me Utsusemi: Ichi and Tonko: Ichi. Actually, she needs to get me all the spells but those two are the most important.

Need them for BLU. Others can wait because I plan on leveling NIN with DNC sub and spamming the elemental spells using cheap tools to skill up Ninja magic.

Hell, I think if all I have are the Utsusemi spells no one will notice or care as BLU.

At least get Tonko and Utsusemi. As for the others, get those if you can. It helps Ninjas build hate.

Tonko, yes always handy to keep around.
Utsusemi helps you a lot when soloing.

Otherwise the ninjutsus Kurayami, Hojo and Jubaku all help you keep your shadows up if you main ninja.
But with nin as sub it won't have too much effect, especially if you fight mobs of your main's level.

The elemental wheel is nice if you want to keep your ninjutsu capped, at least until Ni.
the Ni wheel is actually a pretty nice hate tool until the mid 50's doing between 60 and 100 damage per.

I'm just taking NIN to 37 for BLU sub and yeah, I once partied with a NIN that had 100 WW and 60 in all other crafts and he used the full Ni wheel and I saw what a powerful hate tool that was.

Someday I may take NIN all the way but for now, NIN/DNC to 37 soloing for the most part.

It's what I did from 40 till I started doing lesser colibri.
The nukes definitaly outdamaged my katana swings and after one round of the wheel the 3 BLU I static'd the job wth couldn't get the mobs off me.

Those for that level are very powerful tools to have.
They can be later on, but you'll need a good set of gear meant purely for the nukes.
Next to that, it costs a lot of money to maintain.

I...can see a light at the end of the tunnel...

Seriously, I think the ladies I've been covering for over these last few weeks are FINALLY returning to work so I'll finally have the required free time to play FFXI again.

I swear, every job I work I get dumped on when it comes to picking up the slack. "Hey, the people who are married and have kids need time off for personal stuff. Let's dump all their work on the guy who's not married and has no kids. He won't mind. Hell, we're doing him a favor!"

I'm at the point where I'm considering a career change but I can't think of any form of employment where I can't have another person's responsibilities dumped on me.

:D 5min Omega w/ my ls

*ding* Dancer 15

Visited my friend for super bowl, who's husband is a Dolphin's fan.
When the Giants pulled out a win @ the end he erupted in whoops & cheers and shouted, "Let's parade!"
So we all skipped out into the street being silly & paraded to the bar for a couple drinks.
After that, I schooled him @ Wii bowling & dropped his pro standing by 2 :P beat by a girl :oops: :twisted:

Ah that apollyon, yeah the droprate is pretty crappy in that one if you're farming for coins.
Especially when you just started doing limbus with a small group, this is not one to begin with.

For farming beastcoins with a small group I'd recommend Apollyon SE.
I'd call this melee heaven, and one of the easiest Limbus' to do.

The first floor is a few slimes which are extremely weak to slashing and piercing damage but immune to blunt, next to that the mobs in this specific apollyon have some rediculous damage modifiers.
(Always fun to boost your ego with a 2 or 3k+ WS), given you have a thf with you the coin droprate on the slimes alone is about 7 or 8 coins out of 10 slimes.
I do recommend ninja subjob because their fluid spread hurts like hell.

Second floor:
Crabs and a kraken type NM boss.
Weak to piercing and blunt damage immune to slashing weapon types.
The boss uses hundred fists so a paladin tank is recommendable for him, otherwise kite it or kill it before it 2 hours if you can.

Third floor is a bit trickier:
Skeletons and a Corse NM boss.
Here it's best to camp at the entrance, they have a huge linking range and an even huger blood agro range.
These are weak to slashing and blunt damage but immune to piercing.
Good staff skill or the blunt polearm (collosal lance?) would be recommended.
I'd say staff since they'll resist the weapon skills of the polearm anyway.
In case of a link, unlike normal undead these seem to be susceptible to a blm's sleep.
Take a BRD with you just in case, otherwise have a whm Repose them.
When all skeletons are dead:
The Corse Boss NM does charm, so have sleep ready, otherwise just work him down.

Fourth (last) floor:
Weapons including the NM boss, weak to all melee damage, immune to nukes (DoT spells do work).
Have fun as you TP burn these down, seriously these guys are weak!
And they drop 2 coins each!

Over all to know about this Limbus:
Killing all enemies makes the boss weaker.
You need to kill the boss to be able to warp up to the next floor.
Unlike the other floors the boss of the second floor (the Kraken) does not wait on the next teleporter up, he roams around the area but is easy to avoid if you hug the walls.
Except for the last floor you'll have a 7 or 8 out of 10 droprate for ancient beastcoins given there is a thief.
On the last floor every mob except for the boss drops 2 coins 100%.
Over all yield for this Limbus can be up to 50 or 60 coins including the ones you get from the treasure chests.

I hope this helps.

Small accomplishment:

I have now successfully pulled every dynamis for a win except for Xarcabard and the CoP Areas.
(Funny part... I find Beaucedine the easiest one to pull ._.)
