This made me laugh.


Musta tried tanking titan on Hard Mode as a war...before and after.

I'm guessing it was after the first time he tried the duty finder...

So, dumb question. I triggered my relic quest for the Gae Bolg and I'm at the point where I need a Champion's Lance melded with two savage aim III materia. Some people sell them exactly as that but it's not cheap. Is it hard to find someone to meld the materia (if I get it myself) for me, and can I use a lance that's already bound to me?

Also, I assume I'm going to have to hit up a level 50 carpenter for this. Do people charge for this kind of thing?

If you have  the Lance and it  already has the material in it, yeah you can use it  for the relic quest just un-equipt and give it  to the quest giver. Be warned though, make sure you have a decent replacement because you won't get that lance back. If you need to have one crafted or melded Arliman can do it.

I have the lance equipped, I just need to buy the materia (which is still not cheap, but way cheaper than buying a lance with the materia attached to it) and get it melded - I just wanted to make sure I can still use a lance for this quest even if it's spiritbond to me. I'm okay with giving it up, I can get something decent at my grand company once I (successfully) do Aurum Vale and promote.

So I helped a buddy out by getting the pieces together for an obelisk for him, which is a 600,000 gil i70 spear. Since I obtained the parts and had a friend make if,it cost a lot less and she even HQ'd it for me (she's awesome btw). I hook my pal up with it,and sure as fucking dogshit smelling bad, we do a garuda hardmode and the first win drops the lance. Thankfully I obtained it, but the hilarity was still abundant as the cost was pretty huge and honestly, once we drop titan he's gonna have 9 ak's til a gae bolg anyway, but at least it's different. Just find it all hysterical.

Oh man, I have no idea how to acquire an obelisk without paying for it.

I've also unlocked Ifrit hard mode, I really want to do that and all the fun(?) tomestone grinding.

Yeah, now that I've finished the main story the only thing keeping me from endgame is grinding LNC to 34 so I can have BfB in my repertoire.

Obelisk is a blacksmith item, needs a bunch of items including a darksteel ingot which requires 9 cokes. You get those off of the tomestone traders for 125 philosophy tomestones each.

As a blacksmith, it's weird to think I can make a spear that high since at level 32 I haven't made any at all, but good to know. :D TIME TO GRIND FOR TOMESTONES.

Obelisk isn't worth it. None of the crafted weapons are worth it unfortunately. Ifrit and Garuda are incredibly easy to farm for weapons. Save your tomes for your Relic and Darklight as a DRG. If you need Primals slain for your relic quest just let me know. We 5 manned Titan HM last week for 3 people.

You're a veteran 1.0 player with every class at 50, and probably equivalent friends that did it. Duty finder is full of people who suck.


Your triumph is noteworthy, but lacking because you have yet to beat a df titan. It is impossible.

On a less sarcastic and joke-worthy note, yeah 5 manned titan is pretty good, but to be honest as long as your dps can break gaols before shit hits the fan post heart, you can rape titan with ease,he's fairly easy. Which, in turn, makes me rage at HOW FUCKING AWFUL PEOPLE ARE when it comes to dodging his attacks. Seriously....

I'd love to do Ifrit HM, maybe some of my FC wants/needs it too. :) I need to do other stuff in terms of my relic quest too - EDIT: I have to fight the chimera in Coerthas and it's an 8 person battle.

Actually there's only 4 Legacy players in Solaris who started at 50 including myself. It has more to do with communication and practice than anything. Of my completed Relics I did 2 of them in server PUGs, so it's not impossible. I usually find DF to be filled with first timers, server shouts less so. If your trying to finish any stage of the relic including Primals I would recommend a shout group. The major problem with Titan is the lag most people get in the fight, so I wouldn't chalk it up to people being terrible more so than SE having shitty networking. We still get lag spikes that rape our best players. Again, it really helps to have friends or FC/LS mates you can learn the content with. While ARR definitely gives you the option to play a free agent, you're going to run into frustration with a lot of endgame.

I talked to Mike and were going to try to finish Main Story for him and Stephen on Sunday and anyone else who needs Praetorium. We did Chimera/AK/Hydra yesterday for another Relic pass but I don't mind doing another. Have you finished AV yet? I understand you need that now for the GC rank up to even get AK now. Depending on when we start and how much time people have to play we could finish your entire Relic cycle in about 3 hours if there's enough manpower available.
