Hm, that's cool then. My LS tried Einherjar last night, and it was ridiculous, we honestly lasted about 40 seconds. We pulled one lone skeleton mob, but it seems all the skeletons in the zone share hate...so we had about 30 skeles on us almost instantly. They don't have lower HP than typical mobs, so you can't just burn them down fast, was not fun. I'm convinced there's some kind of trigger, or trick to it, to stop them from doing that, but no one knows yet. We're trying again Saturday night.

Eminence did an Einherjar run last night, with 30 people. I don't think you can do the skeles if you don't have at least 30... We had maybe 3 or 4 deaths to the skeles, and NIN without Phys Dmg- are almost useless. The AoE spam wipes out shadows so fast you don't really have time to put them back up before the mobs you've voked are coming after you. The MB we fought was ridiculous. He takes roughly 1/2 damage from everything, and has a TON of HP. We were thinking around Tiamat HP... Take a Dynamis Lord fight, if you've fought him, add alot HP and make it so he resists all damage. We did get the MB (an Orobon) to 23% before we were kicked out, and I think with a few more of our key DD that we were missing, we could take it.

P.S. Izan.... get NI!!

I really don't think you're meant to fight them like that, honestly. There's some kind of trick we haven't discovered yet; SE never plans for you to reach max capacity at an event for it to be possible. Hopefully we'll know within the next few days.

The skeles were kinda easy, in my opinion... as a DRG. We managed to kill that "special" NM. The MB wasn't that bad with the hp and def. It was plague that killed us. We had good dmg going on the thing but as soon as plague hit it slowed down a LOT. We got 50% down in the five minutes without plague but only about 28% in the last five with plague.

PS... I have 220k. There's no way I'm buying Ni unless I somehow get a 100 piece off DL.

PSS Eminence needs to finish that Aegis... I'M BROKE AND I NEED A PAYOUT!

Rumor is 500 points for a win. 15k for a new puppet remote control.

Doesn't look like a lot of point rewards so far. Wonder if they'll add more.

Maybe it scales based on what you do. I just read 2 posts that said they got 500.

Maybe killing that NM doubles it?

Skeletons may have been easy for you, but didn't you have like 30 people? We only had 16.
