Yes people it was REALLY overdue. I finally got into a Shiva Unreal PF where the people ACTUALLY knew what they were doing! It was a mostly clean run with only one guy dying a couple of times and NO other deaths including ME!
That's RIGHT people, I did not die at ALL. YAY, I finally did it, a no Annabel death run!!!!
And of course we one-shotted her! I wish I was looking at the buff counter when it happened, so I am not sure where she was, but I would bet it was 9 or 10. Our dps was soooo good we did not use the DPS LB3 until she was at 3%, which killed her.
I will tell you, having barely anyone die made healing the run much easier, which is actually kind of funny because you would think it would be HARDER to heal, keeping everyone up and alive. Oh it WAS that, but with hardly anyone dying or doing dumb things, it was MUCH easier on my MP and for it to be available for brute healing, which really helped keep the party up in the later rounds, plus it allowed me to dps a LOT more.
So they DO exist, people trying to get Shiva clears, and I hope I am lucky to get another one like that.
Proof's in the pudding, I probably curse the PFs I jump into. I swear it should not take me 5-6 attempts to get an unreal clear, but every one of my DPSes just slide themselves straight into the freezing circle as soon as we start arriving at 40.
I mean, you've been there, you've seen it!
Walabi, i have noticed it is getting easier to get clears now as people get more experienced with the fight. Last week, the clear parties I got clears in did it in both in 1 and 2 tries. I even got into a party for fun and they did it within 2 tries.
So it DOES seem to be getting better.
Let's hope so, with my workplace being open again, I don't have the luxury to be playing as much as I have been this august, and I can't really afford sinking a whole day into two clears. I'm glad you're having an easier time already, send some of that luck my way!
