Our upcoming Dynamis-Divergence Wave3 Schedule:

Saturday, April 27, Dynamis Jueno 6:30pm EST (3-4 Slots available)

Saturday, May 4, Dynamis Sandy 6:30pm EST (3-4 Slots available)

Saturday, May 11, Dynamis Bastok 6:30pm EST (1 Slot available)

Saturday, May 18, Dynamis Windy 6:30pm EST (2-3 Slots available)


-There runs will also encompass limited to extensive farming on wave 1 and wave 2, every Volte mob killed on wave 3 including the Disjoined. (AKA a good chunk of free neck/weapon rank points)

About Aeonics

-We run Aeonic clears based on buyer demand with Gunslingers and usually complete full clears them in 2-3 Sessions.

-Time frame can vary depending on which players we have available, and how many clients are being cleared, but are typically 4-8 hours (about 6 hours avg) in total for a full clear. (usually consisting of 1-5 clients)

-We have taken up to 7 clients on our Gunslingers runs before so there is usually no problem fitting people in our runs.

-You will actually see real legit strategies (which you can take back with you!!!??) and not Ramuh Spam....well I guess Ramuh spam is 'legit' simply because it works....

-Inquisition only does 1 aeonic run every 2 months at this point, as we finished the majority of our weapons by August 2016 and as such, we do not have set schedule for Aeonics unless we are happening to run Inquisition Ls runs at the time of inquiry.

EDIT: wrong months!

I mean refugees from Ramuh (like me) spamming WSs, or does that not count? :D

If you are inferring to Master Trials, then that is more than fair. People who merc them only ask for basic rolls and afk. That basically ensures maximum survival and speeds up the fight.

Sealed Fate however actually requires a little more due to the obscure Mewing mechanic(if buyer comes smn) almost required or you practically wipe.
Or a cor using skillchains to continue damage to stop Benediction happening every 60 seconds.

Clearly never done Sealed Fate. Even with current gear almost 3 years after it's release, it is still the hardest fight in the game. Current strats require that everyone participates and executes otherwise it's a loss.

The pool of EN players who can complete even the basic *** master trials is less than 50 rn on our server. That may be different on Asura but I'm going to assume it's really not.

So if you want to "contribute" for "free", find 5 other people who have the 600m+ invested in their job with all the appropriate niche gear to get it done and go to town.

The population that have actually "earned" the master trial clears themselves is quite low compared to the size of the server, the very easy master trials such as Unafraid of the Dark and Black and White have many completions, but mostly from people mercing it or being carried by good LS members.

Sealed Fate has i'd like to guess around 60 people cleared on Asura, but hard to tell from ffxiah not showing everyone.

And from what I know from speaking to many people, only 2 groups have cleared Iroha, possibly 4 groups have. All using cheese method, none actually legit. But hey, them Japanese people keep quiet lol, so could be more.

What's the cheese method? Not killing the adds? (I wouldn't consider that cheese)

Yeah not killing adds. Basically makes the fight 100x easier and not stressed for time as much as you normally would be.

Would just say that's poor fight design. Killing adds gives you no benefit what so ever. If there's no reason to kill something, then you don't. If every add knocked off 5% -DT or increased effects of geomancy by a few percent, then it'd be worth it. If you could zerg shadow lord, we would. If you could zerg Alexander/Odin, we would.

Even with not killing the adds, it's a very luck-oriented fight. Back to back AoE can and will kill you even if you have a perfect DT set. You still have to coordinate resleeps and track it to a T.

(Also check out all this free press we're giving Gunslingers, where's my commission???)

Honestly dude I agree with you. Sometimes it's a pain in the ***, so easier to skip. It's not much harder, just less of a headache.

Well they were hard as *** until Omen came out, there were literally only 20-30 blades/Swords on all servers for 1.5-2 years. But yeah things change :X

Also Edited slots remaining for upcoming Dynamis runs

I mean easy compared to Sealed Fate and Iroha. Cos almost any pleb who can break auras or spam volt strike can beat the first two. I beat it using a cure bot on my whm once it's that easy.

Probably a bit higher on baha considering My Ls has about 50 distinct players with at least 1 but for the most part Shozo and Shiraj are right. RIP when people try and do Aphelion/Naginata though.

Totally, those are still out of reach for 97% of the player base. Surprising that Asura doesn't have more considering all them Nirvanas. :X

You mean Unafraid of dark? In early/mid 2016 It was much harder than sealed fate when it came out. Brd sleep was PITA to land and volte strike wasn't even a thing back then since SMN bandwagon happened in late 2016. It was before brd buff too, so song potency wasn't as strong back then and melee dps was way behind early 2017 era. So 1-2 error = failed run.

We were 0/13 in mid 2016 if I remember correctly, sealed fate it was 1/2(or 1/3??) for me. I didn't get my 1st SL win until 2017 after omen/brd buff.

The entire reason why unafraid of the dark is so much easier now is because huge melee power creep happened in past 3 years, as well as brd buff. Once your dps gets there the fight requires less coordination than sealed fate. That's why sealed Fate difficulty didn't drop much unlike SL.

How many of those players just switched into your already-formed 5-stack to get a clear vs 6 fully fresh players going at it. Doing it for the first time with a fresh group is definitely different than doing it with any amount of people who have done it before. Even with "50 distinct players", I'd say the number is way lower if they didn't have a pool of people to fall back on who've already done the heavy lifting.

I personally can't talk about then, because I was actually a returning player back when omen came out. Came back from 3-4 year break around 2016 and wasn't able to do them, but I can imagine it was hard for sure.

But yeah, I was mainly talking about difficulty as of past year, 2018-2019.

also free bumps!

The following are just irradiance blade, all were done by october 2017

I misread your post, there was always at least 1 person in the party who had done it before. (if you do not include the first 6 names of course)

With the exception of the last 16 names(at least 3 experienced MT people) (where it was a merc run and people used their mules) or it was like hey, let's go clear this for you.

My point was considering TnT people have cleared this, you guys have cleared this, and Inqui it's way more than 50 NA/EU capable at least on Baha :P
