Searching far and wide for Bluemage spells, landed me in Bastok. A group from our LS had been working on gathering Spells, so we had spent some time In Bastok’s area trying to help some of them learn “Head Butt” and “Sandspin” and “Sprout Smack” and “Sheep Song”, I actually already had all of these, but was there to help anyway. After people had to go, I was talking to my friend Mieka, and she was getting ready to help one of her friends do the event in Bastok, so I asked if I could join along as wanted to get the Republic Stables Collar that gave you teleports to the Bastok Chocobo Stables. I don’t get out to Bastok very often, so thought it would be useful in the future for when I simply want to turn in Alchemy tests items and it the need should arise to be in Bastok Quickly.
We ended up with 4 red mages and me on whm. We decided to go after the Mithra Armor. Now when I had done this in Sandy, there were 20 -30 + people all working on this one, so I was wondering how this was really going to go. But we had a game plan, the rdm’s would buff up, with thier defense spells (SS, Phlanax, Blink) and I would buff up with just Stoneskin and Blink and Reraise as well as Protect & Shell. The idea was that we’d take turns tanking, and once she’d get through your defenses, you’d zone and someone else would tank. They would then come back out, heal and buff back up, and talk to the moogle to have their level capped, and go back to work on the Mithra Armor. When we got into doing this, it actually went relatively well, although it took a long time when you only hit for 1 point, maybe 2 if you are lucky. Long story short, we defeated the Mithra, and I got the Bastok teleport collar.. /cheer
