Black Belt: O

Took me ~7 years, two servers, and one forced name change... but got it on Aug 2, 2011! MNK was my first job and my early FFXI memories were things like farming in Sarutabaruta to afford those awesome Republic Knuckles. Switched to be a PUP main when TOAU released, but I've always been dedicated to the ways of punching stuff. Never got any of the BB items in the old days though, since I was never into HNMLS or bargaining to buy R/E drops. Just filed it away as something that would be out of my reach.

Well, 3/3 last night with all items obtained from the new system in the past 2-3 weeks. Cursed myself a bit for not getting items off the kings on Titan before the system changed and the server merged, since it would have been easier during the period of fairly low king camping, 80-90 level caps, and before MNK reached the popularity it has today. But I managed it anyway - Wyrm Beard and Adamantoise Egg from KSNMs (1/1 on Beard, 1/2 on Egg), Behemoth Tongue off a friend's KB pop (thanks Genkaku and congrats on your own BB - same night!).

Happy MNK today.

Got my BB items 10-05-2011...
...
...
Got my BB on 10-06-2011 thanks to being only rank 4 tenshodo fame.


Fyi its roughly 220 to go from fame 4 to 6 (same as to go from 1-4). I did 150 to start and no dice, was only mid rank 5 according to rice balls.


Overall, I consider myself SUPER lucky. Got behemoth and wyrm items first kill, both super easy 3 man fights that lasted less than the time it took to buff up.

Turtle took 5 tries and really didn't seem that different than at 75, other than it was much easier to put him back in the shell with regular melee ><

Are these NM's still camped to high ****? I'm coming back, and part of the reason I quit was that Malboro for the brown belt was NEVER there, and the few glimpses I caught of him he was snagged first by someone else.

I don't think the brown belt mobs are overly camped. Dodo might be for trial, but you can usually team up and get the skin. For both my friend and me Morbolger was just sitting there waiting.

Black Belt ~ 2/1/2012
Thanks to the effort of great friends and a rockin' linkshell, finally got that sucker knocked out. >< Always wanted to make a post on this thread, and almost eight years later, I finally get to!
Wyrm Beard - 1/2! Got that on Caitsith, way back when... in 2008, I think? Shelled out 198 KS to Peroperopero and crew of Samsara, and it dropped!
Adamantoise Egg - 1/1 (omg) Got it on a your-orb-your-drops linkshell KS99 run at Turtle, nearly crapped myself. Was my last item, got it on 2/1/12, with my last KS99 orb. x_x

So, with luck like that, what was the holdup?
...1/27 Behemoth Tongue, obtained in December 2011. >< After several linkshell KS99s back on Caitsith in Ascended, I couldn't get it. Paid out several KS99 orbs to other LSs, couldn't get it. Came back to game, levelled to 99, teamed up, couldn't get it. Finally joined a level 99 BST who thought he could trade me the R/X tongue itself for cash, since he just got one to drop and didn't want. Convinced him to go back in and we did it twice more, he solo'd each one beautifully, and each one didn't drop.

**** hit the fan on the final pop, he died, pet died, it recovered HP. He said, 'it won't work, we're gonna lose.'

Was on MNK/WAR, told him to just re-attack it and get it back down. When we were five minutes from loss, I charged in and hundred fist'd it, beat the absolute crap out of it, ate the first Meteor, kept on punchin'. Died in a blaze of glory on the Final Meteor, reraised, opened the chest, and founded a Behemoth Tongue with eight seconds left on the BCNM timer. Was heart-pounding, to say the least!

But after nearly a decade, finally done, woot! Next stop, full Empyrean+2s and maybe Verethragna!

After almost 8 years as a monk main job, I can finally post on this thread and say I am a Black Belt Monk! I got the wyrm beard 2 years ago with a linkshell I was in, doing KSNM 99. I came back after that twice since then after extended breaks. This time I was dead set on getting it, so my friends decided to burn our KS'S and try for the tongue so on different occasions I was 1/16 on the tongue. Funny enough after it dropped we did 1 more run and it dropped again..... So my friend got that for the monk he doesn't play much of lol.

So then we were out of Kindred seals so we took a break from trying and I started shouting for the egg , never got anything out of it. I turned in all of my seals and needed 27 seals, so I farmed off and on for 2 days and finally got 99. I shouted for people that needed it and my friends and others tried 7 orbs. We went 0/7..... my friends decided to pop my blue pondweed .
We killed it and got the red pondweed! So we call 1 more blm friend to come help. We pop it put TH9 on aspid and he dropped the egg!

I want to thank my friends FLatliner, Darknjager, Turan, Imtehnub, and Darks brother Kataran for helping with the last 2 items.

Played MNK as my first job back in 2004 and never thought I would ever get this item. Between then and now I've been going back and forth between MNK and BRD, but the love is still there. I just never thought I could keep up with players with RA/EX gear while my MNK was AH-geared.
So now to finish up my empy +2s!

while i assume most people reading this don't know who i am, want to chime in that the drunk monk is still rating up every post in this thread. while pahn himself may be on permanent sabbatical in port bastok with oggbi, and i can barely remember the old pdif formula, i still have love for all monks.

also, i am at about 1.5 liters of world class beer right now, and the truth that i discover is my magnanimous sentiment toward all who once wondered furtively about the true purpose of the beat cesti.

I've wanted to make a post in this thread for four years now...

Obtained: Black Belt, 10/01/12.

Wyrm Beard; 1/1 from KSNM.
Behemoth Tongue; 1/6 from KSNM - Bought for 500K.
Adamantoise Egg (took far too long to do!); 0/2 from KSNM. 1/3 Red Pondweed from Adamantoise, 1/1 from Aspidochelone.

Never thought I'd get this far. Thankyou to my RL friends "the -hank family" for holding all the Blue Pondweeds I never ended up needing, and a shout-out and a huge "Thankyou!" to XIVExcalibur LS from Cerberus, for letting me borrow lots of THFs for Aspi - and congratulations as well to Alavan of the same LS, who obtained his Black Belt, too, on the same trip to Valley of Sorrows. Good job bro ^^b

I started this game in 2006 as a Monk. My friends convinced me to start this journey, and I asked if there were any Martial Arts type jobs and Monk was what was told to me. I started off running around town, getting lots of /checks from other people, being a naked Elvaan in Windy lol. After I found my way outside into Saruta, my friend told me to equip my weapon. I looked around my inventory and found only some sorta blue "Gimp" leather suit lol. And a Belt. A white belt. I told him I had no weapons just a belt, and that was B.S. lol. He told me not to worry about it I would be ok. I asked how in the world I would kill anything with out any weapons or magic? He said don't worry, just engage. So I took his advise and just engaged a rabbit with him. I was hooked. Plain and simple, I was hooked. I didn't need any stinking weapons! I was PUNCHING this rabbit in the FACE! Flash forward to 2013, about a month ago, I always played my Monk fairly often but really just for me, I had been lured away by the awesomeness of Blue Mage, and Puppetmaster! I finally, after all these years of just not really bothering to, and lack of needing to, I got my Black Belt. I realized after I equipped it for the first time, that I had finally come full circle, I finally got a piece of gear that I had been wanting for so many years, yet I had only just now realized that. I am now currently in the process of treating my Monk like the champion job it deserves. To all the Monks out there, joining this club is simply what I needed to reinvigorate my drive to play, with out me even knowing that is what I needed. /cheers and /hurray to all the Monks who belong here.

The new updates with Trust made the mobs a joke, and earlier posts certainly had a much more difficult time, but I'm glad I got mine.

Edit:
Bought the tongue from a KS99. Mine was the highest offer for just under 300k. Every last gil except for AH sales.
Went through a few blue pondweeds with no luck, got tired of bullcrap drop rates. Thanks to new Argus spawn rate, I got his PCA, so I was able to sell back my PCC. Then the next morning, I got a silverpiece while Dynamis farming. This windfall made me serious about BB again. Found good deals on bazaars for sweet tea andred pondweed for 800k each. Got 1/1 on each mob.

Had Kupipi, Ajido-Marujido, and Shantotto for my trusts and I had my THF for obvious reasons. I don't have the +2 feet however. At HQ Wyvern, Ajido-Marujido came close to dying. He had single digit HP at the end of the fight. I was expecting a similarly tough battle from HQ turtle, but surprisingly, a much quicker fight. My trusts even knew how to dispel. I'm proud of my tarus!
