I have been attempting to start a group for the last few missions of CoP and have been unsuccessful with shouts. If you're on the last chapter of CoP I was hoping to put a static together to get it done. Send me a tell in game or a pm here. I want to push through this as quickly as possible.

I've already informed Citag of this, but my static is now on CoP 8-1. We will be completing it Monday at ~8 CST (gather by 7 CST in case everyone is ready early). Since 8-1/8-2 aren't battlefields, I have no problem with those that need it tagging along.

For the 8-3/8-4 battlefields, I'll see what we can work out based on those that need 8-1/8-2.

Edit: I was entertaining the idea of doing 8-1 and 8-2 both on Monday. Then I read about 8-2 more. That ***sucks. You have a total of an hour and 45 minutes worth of time limits. That doesn't include the running around without the time limits. So at least 2-2.5 hours worth of time from start.

Does this sound right to those that have done it already?

I forgot how long it took but it was quick as hell, we just slept everything and the nm at the end was a joke I didn't even get to get off my 6 ws darkness b4 it died.

8-3 you should worry more about, much harder.

I'm trying NOT to think about 8-3/8-4 too much right now. I'll stress about those next week or so.

If you stress over a game then you need a break, but after CoP is complete!

Eh, I use the term loosely. If you ask Iza, there is very little I stress over, and the things I do are all RL issues.

So I'm more referencing taking the time to work out a strat than actually stressing.

Well I think next week I'll need a couple RR items handy. Nothing like doing a mission that's just like an escort mission. Sleepga II and run!

It depends when we finish the NMs for 8-1. If we finish at a decent time, we'll go ahead and give the escort a whirl. If not, I want to do some organ farming as a group to get started on items people need.

Edit: Either way, I want to incorporate some organ farming into our schedule. Maybe on free Mondays after CoP is complete until I can get RoZ started up.

I don't know if anyone else would be up for it unless they want a gorget. I killed quite a bit of goldfish last night and no organ drop so farming as a group can work, but 6 people fighting over organs gonna be rough.

I agree, and that's what I'm thinking about today. It's going to suck anyway, but if we can kill ***at a decent rate it should work out. Also, the 100% drops (Xzomit from mother mob) would be a decent place to start to knock those out.

I'm going to do a bit of farming this afternoon and see how much luck I have.

Edit: We'll also have Stone come THF instead of SAM for TH. Or Citag if he helps.

For 8-2 try to have 2 sleepers and it will be a breeze for the escort. For the fight like I said I didn't even complete my 6 ws darkness so if you have 2 competant DD that will be no problem.

8-3 isn't bad, blm for ES sleepga2 is a major asset if not available try to Zerg as much as possible with like 4 SAMs all 2 hr ing

I'm not concerned with 8-2 other than the amount of time it might take. If we don't have a problem landing sleeps, we should be fine. Otherwise it's going to be annoying fighting crap.

I haven't even looked at the battlefield on 8-3 yet. I'll keep what you said in mind when I go through it and work out our strat.

Might I recommend killing the om version of the dolphins 14% instead of 4, I can solo them on Sam/dnc so a party will rape. Sharks have good drop rate so stick with ul, aerns have same drops rate so doesn't matter. Farm ul squid 100% drop rate ain't bad and zone pets.

For ulyovras rdm and 2-3 blm can do it, for omyovras add another blm. Rdm MUST stick gravity and bind at will. Bio and poison are big.

Yep some people call dolphins dome call goldfish.

Just be very careful around the spawn points for the om versions there's usually an asston of omsharks and ufos. Ufos will rape you something fierce I aggroed one on my Sam/dnc with a tanking setup and they were hittin for 300 plus an thier tp moves are like 600-800 that's why you manaburn them. You cam also shadowtank but need alot of Eva an a brd helps alot.

Getting to 8-2 is annoyingly long especially since there will always be some idiot that doesn't listen and aggros every pot. Well similar story for 8-3s tower climbing. Though a rdm can solo both fairly easily. The running part not the fighting.

8-3 pot fight isn't really that hard. Just have a few ES sleepgas (even whm works) and some decent dmg. I think I did it with like 1 smn 1 blu/nin to start a light at first 1 whm/blm and 3 blms lol. Just beware of Optic something or another. That move will pwn everything in line of sight.

8-4 is lol easy. Keep your npcs alive and they can do most the heavy lifting. Promathia is easy to kite too.

Dolpins are sad. Even the EM/T ones can be killed with 1 T4 then an open mouthed AM2.

UFOs... they can be solod by a blm with lots of mp 2hr and luck/skill. Probably sch. They are sleepable/bindable/gravityable which helps. Though they do build resistance though really you have to zerg due to there regen so meh. Enpara sucks too. Generally my limbus group would do them after omega since they can be blink tanked easy. 1 nin/drk tank with haste/refresh kept it busy easy while blms nuked here and there.

the Om dolphins are about as hard as a ul shark. Shark is maybe harder cuz of spikes and dolphins open thier mouth. If they catch you off guard with paralyze and stun with thier mouth open though they can easily do quick massive dmg to kill you on sam/dnc. I'd recommend a good pdr set for any Om version especially the shark, although like I mentioned the only Om version worth fighting are the dolphins because the drop rate is tripled to 14% and the yovra of course.


I just finished killing 60-70 om dolphins died once from what i mentioned. The ul dolphins are soooooooo easy i fulltime hasso against them they really are a joke, drop rate is 4% though not worth it unless TH3/4.

Just a quick bump for this.

My LS is going to help out on Monday with the NMs/climb. Should be a joke. If you need 8-1/8-2, this is a great chance to get it done.

Final bump for this. Should be quick and painless today (aside from the tarus we sacrifice).

Last week we didn't complete 8-2 due to finishing 8-1 later than expected. If anyone still needs 8-2, we're gathering at 7PM CST.
