    Greetings!

    SUBJECT: Chains of Promathia - Chapter 6 (Guide: Sassafras's Ultimate CoP Guide)

    DATE: September 19 & 26, 2006

    GATHER TOGETHER POINT: Tavnazian Safehold

    GATHER TOGETHER TIME: 8:00 PM EST

    ENTER/START TIME: 8:30-8:45 PM EST

    NOTES: If you are just joining CoP Tuesdays (PromathiaYuuetsu), please be sure to pickup a pearl from a current member with a sack.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    DETAILS:

    Welcome to {SEA} everyone. We now begin the final chapter of CoP, Chapter 8.

    When you arrive in Al'Taieu, please be aware of UFO's -- you will have to look up to see them.... See them before they see you. Only the blue sharks in the water will aggro and harm you. All other mobs may follow you around but will not attack unless you damage them or as Sassafras reminded me: Cast any spell that has potential to damage them. :)

    Chapter 8 - Emptiness Bleeds

    8-1 - Garden of Antiquity

    1. Crystalline Field @ (H-11) >> First CS
    2. Travel to the Three Towers @ (D-10), (H-13) & (L-10).
    3. Each tower has three NM's -- DO NOT TOUCH THE CYRSTAL until ready to fight.

    Mobs:
    (D-10) Tower: Ru'Aern (DRK, RNG, RDM)
    (H-13) Tower: Ru'Aern (SAM, WAR, WHM)
    (L-10) Tower: Ru'Aern (MNK, BLM, PLD)

    4. After defeating each tower, touch the Rubious Cyrstal for a CS.
    5. Return to the Crystalline Field @ (H-11) for a CS.
    6. Click the 'Gate of the Gods' @ (H-8) and receive TAVNAZIAN RING.
    7. East Particle Gate @ (H-8) in Grand Palace of Hu'Xzoi for one more CS.

    8-2 - A Fate Decided

    This time-consuming mission is to go through Hu'Xzoi to a Cermet Portal, while avoiding enemies and escorting Quasilumins.

    • Examine the Particle Gate (H-8) in Grand Palace of Hu'Xzoi, for a cut-scene.
    • Head to (J-8).
    • Quasilumin (NPC) appears when you examine the Cermet Alcove.
    • Cermet Portal opens, which takes you to J-7.
    • Move Quasilumin and go ahead through a road. -> It is started again when attacked by an enemy.
    • I headed L-6, go to 2nd Map by warp
    • Because Quasilumin appears when I examine Cermet Alcove of M-7, I take you to I-8.
    • Cermet Portal of J-8 opens when I arrive. (Cermet Portal in the way opens at the time of the Quasilumin passage automatically.)
    • Because Quasilumin appears when I examine Cermet Alcove of J-10, I take you to G-10.
    • Cermet Portal of F-10 opens when I arrive.
    • I headed G-12, go to 1st Map by warp.
    • Because Quasilumin appears when I examine Cermet Alcove of F-10, I take you to H-7.
    • After arrival, Cermet Portal at (H-6) opens when you talk to Quasilumin.
    • Head to (G-4), go to 2nd Map by warp.

    • Examine Cermet Portal at (H-8) to spawn NM Ix’ghrah

    • Examine the Cermet Portal again for a cut-scene. ​
    • Unless you want to walk all the way back to the one-way door, you can now Escape to get out.

    A few warnings: When you get around to the southwest part of the upper floor, you'll find a portal leading east, that asks for confirmation before going through. DO NOT go through it. This leads back to the lobby and is one-way if you go through it you lose all your progress.

    8-3 - When Angels Fall

    1. Open Gate of the Gods (H-8) in Grand Palace of Hu'Xzoi.
    2. Zone into the Garden of Ru'Hmet for a CS and obtain the Mysterious Amulet.
    3. Get your missing light, get the Brand of Dawn and Brand of Twilight.

    Thus begins climbing each tower based on your race.

    Some of the stuff after Tuesday is solo-work. We can wait for you or can arrange help for the pot BC as need.

    My GF from Japan arrives here on October 12, so I'll be busy myself during the time she's here. I should be able to attend the tuesday event on Oct. 17.

    We'll need BLM's for the POT bc and our setup for Promathia is okay.

    Somewhere in there, we'll do Divine Might and the Kid fight to complete the Zilart series.... going into the "Final Verse".

    We will get Tavnazian rings on Tuesday. :)

    Thanks,
    Aa

    I'm away on work Monday and Tuesday. I should be home on time Tuesday, but I have a meeting at least until 4 and a 4 hour drive home. I'll be cutting close. Might not have internet at the hotel, never can tell, but I plan on being there.

    We may be delayed for Boots.

    The 3 NM's take about 30 minutes or so.

    I don't think we'll get much past that since the rest until the Pot BC is solo work.

    i suggest that when you do the running up the towers thingy... bring either a whm with RR3, or a lot of rr pins. you WILL be aggroing shit :p

    8-2 is not easily soloable. Quasi escorts and the Vorpal Ghrah at the end are fun stuff. After that it's solo for light/brands.

    I talked to Bootstraps... Let's aim for 9:30 PM.

    We can kill some mobs until boots gets on ~10PM EST.

    We should be able to do:

    A) 3 NM's
    B) Get Tavnazian Ring
    C) Do Escort Mission

    If we don't slack off -- we can get this done.

    I'm told that we have people coming to help that are coming just for fun.

    I am going to try to do a quick SE Apollyon duo before the mission, but I forget when I went in last time. I think it was around 8-9. I should be ready to go by 10.

    P.S. Let's kill Yovra! /grin

    Elvier was checking on Vanyel

    Sassa can you come BLM?

    Anyone else that wants to join in on the fun, please come.

    I know there is a limbus run at 9:00PM EST, may go to that if we gather quickly and get out fairly quickly. :)

    With starting so late, Sass and Vanyel if they can come, would not be able to stay except for an hour or 2 at the most. So that may be enough time for the 3 Rubious crystal pop NM's. But no way they could stay for escort.

    How long does the escort take? I heard it is about 4 hours and you can not leave or you have to start over? Just trying to get an idea on time and items I need to bring. Poison pots for example are mentioned for the Ix'ghrah in 8.2.

    Hmm... The escort shouldn't take that long nowadays... Let's get the 3 NM's done and then see where we stand. We may be able to drag out some help. I really do not think that the escort takes that long anymore.

    We can get a few extra hands to clear the path... I'm sure it won't be a big deal. Hardest part is the damn pots. I'm pretty skilled at getting by them without aggro.

    There is no sneak or invis needed in none of these areas. You will either get aggro by just being there or casting magic. A *LOT* of it can be avoided entirely.

    Let's play it by ear after the 3 NM's.

    I have the map, and know the path for the palace. If we just sleep our way through most agro it should only take an hour or two. Picking up Quasis for the map quest can occur at a later date. If we can get into the garden ppl can get themselves up to the 8-3 BC solo with an RR pin (2 RR pins if you do the garden map at the same time). I'll come BLM tonight for sleeps.

    when you do the pots BC, my suggestion is to bring 3+ blms...get outside help and do multiple runs. 2 blms is enough.. but you will have a wipe/RR before you are able to finish them off.
