We did our first Kirin in a while. We decided to go do Kirin because I said so. That and my BLM assist for Dynamis - San d'Oria, we only use two BLMs for cities and one for Xarc, kept DCing. I took a look at our newer members' gear and holy sh*t was it @#%^ing awfulwith a capital @#%^ING TERRIBLE. So I declared we were selling a pair of W.Legs because the ls members needed gil far more than one person needed to run a little faster.
RDM/WHM (Me, kiting with the first PLD)
This should have been an easy win.
Suzaku's first summon. Chainspell, Shadowbind + CS Stun, 4 DD sit there breaking bind after a twenty minute lecture on the importance of not breaking bind. The CS stun is standing too close to the tank for some reason, and 2 Firaga III's get through his CS, killing him, as Suzaku kills the 4 DD that stayed on him, and one of the rangers.
Suzaku's still up when Seiryu is summoned, so I hold him a bit. Somebody hits it with a ranged attack and breaks my bind, killing me. The BRD DCs. They finish Suzaku off, then pull Seryu. The RDM/DRK RRs into Aeroga III. He gets a raise, and eats Radiant Breath. Clearly, this is going to be one of those runs because we have a @#%^ing audience of buyers right?
Byakko pops right as Seiryu hits hundred fists. I bind it, right before it finishes the kite PLD, saving him with 40 hp, Diaga III on him, and Kirin right on his ass. The veteran RNG saves him with a shadowbind on kirin. We rally, Seiryu gets killed, and the other PLD comes to pull Byakko away.
Things are looking up, almost had a scare near the start of Byakko though as Diaga III > Claw Cyclone dropped 2 idiots cold and the PLD to 4 hp. We kill Byakko as me and a RNG, then myself kite Genbu. We've already won.
After that, we just wail on Kirin, though we had to kite him once for a lap of the room to recover from AF since mp was low when it went off.
All in all, 40 minutes for the fight. 25 kiting, 15 killing.
W.Legs dropped. Handed out 750k to all there, save the two first timers that got a leser share. Not terrible for 40 minutes. We took lowball bids on Abjurations since we were over halfway through our 3 hour run time before we changed events, gathered, and got through that annoying @#%^ing portal. Hurray for 1/37 on Kirin room right?
Afterwards, even my level headed wife told them their performance was awful, but commended them on one hell of a comeback. I made them all stay 20 minutes late to fight a Seiryu till they got SHADOWBIND MEANS DON'T @#%^ING TOUCH IT. Seiryu run went well, dropping in a couple minutes.
After that, me and some of the guys lowmanned a Fortitude I farmed up myself, which went so smoothly, though of course no torque dropped for me, that we were inspired to go lowman Prudence. We found we can easily kill Prudence with 4, though it's much, much faster with 6.
Finished the night killing a couple yovra's for a member's gorget and good karma.
Making a Karma thread on the ls site was @#%^ing ingenious. It motivates people to help others, and lets people find help. Since I used my awesome ability to influence people's minds with my high CHR, and gave that lecture about striving to reach a goal of saying yes to helping ls mate 4 out of 5 times it's asked, or 80% for you math failures, people have been spending alot less time sitting on their ass and sucking in WG, and more time farming waters, gorgets, obis, KSNM, ISNM, forced pops, etc with ls mates.
Fara how the @#%^ do yall do kirin?
