The King is Dead. Long Live the King!
I am not usually interested in collecting mounts. However, while farming tokens I got the Titania one with a roll of 91! I actually quite like it now that I had a good look.
I was also able to farm up tokens for my Titania sword and shield. I am ambivalent about the sword but I think the shield is really beautiful.
I did 5 runs with a strong party that could kill Titania around the 2nd set of tethers. I also did 6 runs (including 2 wipes) with another party that was only able to kill her around enrage. But they kept improving, and on the final pull, they also killed her shortly after 2nd tethers!
I noticed a trend among players that do high-end content. Strong players are often very reserved and professional, and talk very little. They are like Batman, they come silently in the middle of the night, kick ass and leave without a word.
On the other hand, weaker (in terms of DPS) players tend to be more chatty. This can be annoying if they have a bad attitude, but if they are trying their best, it can be a fun experience. I had a great time with the second party, even though we were plagued with issues including several DC's, and it was fun watching them improve and sort out problems. At the end, everyone was really positive and thanked each other for the team. I had a great evening.
If you have not tried Titania, I encourage you to do so! It is a great introduction to EX as the mechanics are easy and come out at a slow pace. I kind of wish I learned it blind now, I totally bet I could figure it out. If you can do Orbonne Monastery or Alphascape 4.0, you can do Titania for sure.
One thing that puzzles me is I partied with a WHM that did not put regen on me (!), not even once. I have heard that WHM does very high dps, and it is now no longer worth it for them to cast Regen. As a result, I was often very low on HP and the SCH in that party cast a lot of Physicks to compensate, but I don't know if he was overhealing.
Once, another PLD subbed as our MT for 1 pull only. Immediately after the party disbanded he sent me a friend request and messaged me to say "You, sir or madam, are one hell of a tank!" (I was tempted to reply "Yes I am the tank from hell...") It was flattering, but I do not believe I am anything special. I really wonder what made him think I was a good tank.
Based on parses that people uploaded of me, I was able to improve my dps to the range of 5.5k-5.9k. Most of my dps losses are from rotational error. In conclusion, I need more practice doing the rotation.
Altogether it was a productive day!
Um, shouldn't it be QUEEN? You know, Titania's a QUEEN, your character is FEMALE, UGH, silly Hell Tank!
Not putting a regen on you is just LAZY!, it's an instant cast so NO excuse!
Unless it's me, then there is ALWAYS an excuse not to heal Hellspawn Tanks, laziness works! ;p
Ooooo, look at Miss, 'I gots me an EX mount and EX weapons and lazy ditzy blonde over there has not even done the first Shadowbringers story yet, Ha Ha!'
Well I will GET there TOO! Just you wait and SEE! Phhhht!
Bwahaha! I can't say anything to that without SPOILERS!
And don't rush it Annabel! Seriously, don't, lol. When you complete the MSQ, you will go on break again and Lodestone will be less fun. So, take your time doing the story, there's no rush!
Congrats Sig! Now move to Aether :P
Congrat on the clear, the mount and the good experience. Especially the experience. Nothing beats running into good people, having a good time.
I have 27 clear on Titanian Ex so far but have never seen one mount appeared. I have a feeling that I will go to farm 99 totem. I do like the music, so maybe it worth the effort. I am doing it on SCH, so I can learn about the job in the process.
27 CLEAR Sigurd? Damnit, I'll be lucky to get ONE!
And don't you DARE spoil ANYTHING for me Hell Tank!
LOL, we will see how I feel after its complete, but honestly, the way I am going, it will be a LONG time before that happens. I STILL have not reached that stupid city with Alphy yet. ;-)
Panda: Hmm... maybe I should. Aether seems more sociable. And everyone on Lodestone seems to be from there. I would most def switch for a better social experience, lol.
Yes Sigurd! You are absolutely right. I won't turn down fast efficient clears but meeting great people and having fun is the best part of an MMO IMO.
Good luck getting your mount! But if the horn drops when you already have 90+ totems, won't it be cruel instead?! Lol.
Annabel, you will be fine. I think this trial is easier than dealing with wall to wall pull in dungeon. You only need a team that actually do mechanics. So far, the parties that want to cheese mechanics, or not dodging aoe wipe the raid the most.
I am using it to learn to play SCH.
For some reasons I find WAR the hardest to heal, especially if they have vulnu stack. On WAR with 70% HP got one shot by add. Maybe I keep running into people who suck at WAR.
Siglinde, I still have not seen a single drop yet. If I manage to get it at the 98th run, then so be it. I think the best way is not to hope to get luck and just keep collecting totem.
The weapons look nice too. I need to make some room on my retainers.
This is also the reason I level SCH, so I can learn the job while farming totem.
Graz on a productive day! Always nice to read from you :)
Aether is now open... cough cough, just saying
Logan! Where have you been? I haven't seen you in lodestone for ages. I hope you are enjoying the expansion!
Hasn't cleared or jump in to Titania yet.. Haven't got the chance.. But congrats anyway.. Titania indeed have unique music background..
