I love, love, LOVE Hildibrand

Today I got reminded why I love those Hildibrand quests so much!
Too bad this questline was very short this time! Can't wait for the next!

Turn 7: Check!

Yesterday we had our second try (about 3 hours) on Turn 7 and we finally killed the boss!
When I did the Melee Limit Break on the add, I got petrified during the animation. I laughed so much, because it looks like Kou Ji is SUPERMAN!!!
We got some caster and healer accessories and the usual loot - an Oil and an Unidentified Allagan Tomestone. I'm so happy that I got the Tomestone - I did so many ST runs this week without any luck, so this was quite a relief for me. Next week I'll equip my Monk with a brand new ilvl 110 weapon! Missing only 120 Solidery Tomes for now, which I can get next tuesday before we raid again.

Turn 6: Check!

Hey guys!

Last sunday I finally got Turn 6 down and I'm totally happy about that! I found a new static group and they are fun to play with - althogh I had to change my main class from Bard to Monk.
I'm not pretty good at playing a melee class, but I'm willing to learn it properly! I also don't have awesome gear for my MNK yet, but I'm working on it.

Luckily I got my first drop from T6: The High Allagan Headgear of Striking!!
I wonder what T7 will be like. Can't wait to try it out!

It also took me quite long to find a glamour that I like for my Monk, but I'm super happy with the outcome now:
Catch you later!

Guide: Book of Skyearth I Completion

1. Enemies 
You have to kill 10 enemies of each kind listed below (that makes a total of 100 foes).

Location: Mor Dhona - North Silvertear
Luckily there are tonns of those monsters around the following location:

5th Cohort Secutor
Location:  Mor Dhona - The Fogfens
I found a total of 3 Secutors hanging out in Castrum Centri. One is in front of the base, one in the first room and one in the second room.

Natalan Swiftbeak
Location: Coerthas Central Highlands - Natalan
Natalan Swiftbeaks are scattered all across Natalan. You should kill some of the other mobs, because it can easily happen to have about 6 buddies zerging you!

Violet Sigh
Location: East Shroud - The Sylphlands
"Sigh" really fits here. THIS WAY. *sigh*
And then there aren't really many of them, and they are scattered everywhere... *doublesigh*
So yea, I just camped one location to get my kills done.

Ixali Boldwing
Location: North Shroud - Proud Creek
Those are not really hard to find and there are plenty of them around the following location:

Amalj'aa Scavenger
Location: Southern Thanalan - Zanr'ak
I didn't find many of them, but at least they are close to the Zahar'ak Pugilist that you'll also need to kill! They are guarding the gates to Zahar'ak. I just killed them and went to kill the Zahar'ak Pugilist while waiting for their respawn.

Zahar'ak Pugilist
Location:  Southern Thanalan - Zahar'ak
Again - those are close to the Amalj'aa Scavengers, so you can just run around the entrance of Zahar'ak and nuke both different monsters!

Location: Western La Noscea - The Sapsa Spawning Grounds
Those are really easy to find. They respawn fast and there are tonns of them!

2nd Cohort Signifier
Location: Eastern La Noscea - The Agelyss Wise
I wasn't expecting to find a lot of those, but there are actually tonns of them in the fortress and you can get your kills done pretty quickly!

Elite Quarryman
Location: Outer La Noscea - U'Ghamaro Mines
I didn't find many of them, and because they were overfarmed I just camped one location to get my 10 kills.

2. Dungeons 
You have to complete the following 3 dungeons in order to complete this category:
  • Halatali
  • Amdapor Keep
  • Pharos Sirius
You'll need to equip your Atma weapon while killing the last boss!

3. FATEs 
Your next task is to complete 3 special FATEs. I recommend to camp at the shown location or at least close to it, because you will have to get a gold medal in order to get it done - and this can be rather difficult if you have to run to the spot first.

The Taste of Fear
Location: Coerthas Central Highlands
This FATE really takes ages to start... I spent 2 hours camping it until it finally popped. You will need to kill a boss that has tonns of HP, you might want to bring a friend with you. We were nuking it for about 6 minutes with 3 people until it finally died.

Location: Outer La Noscea
This is an easy FATE, you need to destroy the Kobold Toolboxes until a boss called "59th Order Matriarch Go Zu" spawns. He needs to get killed and he does ranged attacks, so it won't be easy alone.

The Big Bagoly Theory
Location: Eastern Thanalan
And another boss. He looks really powerful, but he is terribly slow and he doesn't do much damage. Bagoly also doesn't have a lot of HP, so he drops very fast. Be sure to camp next to the FATE, because it might be too late before you can arrive. Oh, and by the way, the FATE is at the very bottom!

4. Leves
Now there is only one category left: Levequests! You have to do 3 special Leves, so be sure to have enough allowances ready. In case you don't find the right Levequest at the NPC, you will have to initiate other Leves before and hope that they will spawn after. Or else: Try to come back another time (which actually worked better for me).

Don't Forget to Cry
Location: Northern Thanalan - Camp Bluefog
Talk to Rurubana <Levemete>, who is located in Camp Bluefog, and choose Battlecraft Leves. After initiating it, you have to kill some of the monsters around to obtain a bottle of Tears of Nepenthe. You can use those on the prime locations around. Your goal is to spawn and defeat 2 Balors.

Necrologos: The Liminal Ones
Location: Mor Dhona - Saint Coinach’s Find
Talk to K'leytai <Levemete> in Mor Dhona and select this leve. After initiating it, you will need to collect 5 Necrologos pages which are hidden inside the parchment and defeat the mobs that spawn randomly. After collecting the 5 pages, a little boss called Denizen of the Dark will spawn. You need to kill it.

No Big Whoop
Location: Coerthas Central Highlands - Whitebrim Front
Talk to Lodille <Serpent Sergeant> in Whitebrim Front and choose Immortal Flame Leves. This Leve is funny - you need to /poke the monsters around and kill them if they carry a luminous crystal! Your main goal however is to kill 3 Wandering Bogys - sometimes the mobs turn into them and you can get your kills done.

Congratulations, the Book of Skyearth I is now complete!
