Time to get serious everyone, the last group that was formed in the FC the leader dropped the FC and went to another one. I will not run with people who do just that.

I will be creating a linkshell for this shortly but looking for members who want to experience more of FFxiv AAR by running Bahamut's Coil. I'm looking to start a runs on 11/23-11/24 as a trial days, the time isn't set in stone yet as this will depend on the availability of the members running (This will allow members to gear up before the run).
Due to the nature that yes RL > MMO, I'm looking for the following slots:

2-4 Tanks
2-4 Healers
6-8 DPS

With the extra than what is required this will help if other members are not available for a given day.

The requirements (yes these are needed as the content is more intense than running ak/wp)

1. Relic for given job you are running (+1 even better)
2. Full Darklight gear for the job you are running (af2/allaghan even better) (There will be a gear check before the
run.
3. Voice Chat (as this helps with communication during the encounter and faster to talk then type)
I know we had a vent server in the past but I will either be setting one up for our group and can leave the other
one for other people who use them. I've have used Vent, Skype in the past, and am open to using something
other than vent (will take suggestions if members want to use something else .... teamspeak, mumble).

You don't have to have a mic to talk on any given chat we use, but need to be able to listen to commands on how the encounter is going.

Crystal Tower will be coming out in December and is going to be a 24 man raid (with access to it from DF as well).

When voting please vote public so we can determine who is voting and will be part of the group. Private votes will not be counted. This poll will end 11/22 or when we fill up the slots needed as listed above.

By adding your name to this discussion you here by agree to the requirements that are listed above (will be fully geared and ready to go). The set raiding days/time will be based on the groups availability as we all either have a family, work, friends in real life.

Please list the job you will be using as your main, having more than one is even better if you are flexible in using either/any job for the run. If you are asked to run on a different job than you main you will need to declare before the run if you want gear on your main (even though playing a different one), or the job you are using. Being there is no master looter in the game I'm asking for people to be honest when it comes to what was just listed so the ones running on something else other than main has the chance to loot gear for the job they choose.

I'm pretty much in the same boat as Arylin, I am working as hard as I can to get geared out, but can't guarantee that I would be geared in time for this. I am extremely interested in doing BC, I have some experience from WoW in raiding, Karazhan and Gruuls lair in Burning Crusade, and Cleared Naxx and some of Ice Crown in WotLK.


Also what time are you hoping to start, cause I work nights so if its anything before 10 pm central time, I wouldn't be able to make it anyways.

Getting DL armor is the easier of the 2 your are mentioning (Time consuming). How many pieces do you need?
Where are you within the relic quest line (which fight)?
Which role would you like to fill, dps, tank or healer?

I'm totally ready for this. Relic +1 and full dl now working on af2 pieces that are upgrades. I work mostly till 930p est but I am off every Friday and every other weekend. Been waiting to try BC with FC instead of elitist pugs. Don't have a mic but can listen in on vent easily. I'm excited to experience this and can't wait to get our raid groups going so we will be ready for the new raids. Can go sch at this point.

Currently only have the belt (working on more), on chimera but hope to fix that this week, and Tank.

Relic +1 Dragoon here. Full Darklight, Allagan Body, Allagan Belt, and mythology earrings. Ready to rumble with firsthand experience and clears in turn 1 and 2.


I have Vent and Skype, but I suppose I could download something else if I needed to.
Foro Forofor, Dragoon extraordinaire!

currently I have 2 pieces of DL and am one run away from my 3rd, as far as Relic quest line I am at Hydra, as far as role, I would be playing as BLM.

I'll also put this here, anyone looking to farm WP or AK I am almost always on wed-friday around 11pm Central time if anyone wants to group up.

I chose other because there is no "any of these will work" option. I would say if I have to choose one that I like the least, it would be skype, as it drains the piss out of my internet connection.

I can tank probably, but seeing as I'm a WAR, most people say it isn't in you're best interest to have me tank. Either way, I have full DL, 1 myth piece, and in need of my Titan kill to get the relic. Sign me up. :D

I wouldn't beat your self up on this too much, I did a quick search after I read this, and some of the "warrior can't" is
A. elitest BS, like people who think you cant do garuda with out full DL and relic +1, which IMO mostly stems from people being lazy and would rather have everything be easy mode then have to work hard to get something done

B. I saw several posts with people saying warriors work fine for Off tanking in BC

C. Warrior buffs are coming in 2.1

I'm pretty sure it isn't Yoshi's intent to have content that can't be done by both tanking classes, and if it is, then that's pretty poor game design on their part. Obviously there will be parts where one class will out shine the other, but that doesn't mean it cant be done.

Also, whats really more important is the player not the class, you can be the most geared out Paladin in game, but if you don't know shit about how to play your class, can't take criticism/advice, and don't play well with others, your going to be worthless no matter what.

"Bring the player not the class"

When I tanked Naxx in BC for the first time on my Death Knight, a lot of the people in raid were a little concerned that I wouldn't be able to handle main tanking, after we one shot the first two wings, they all stfu. Keeping gearing your self out, siop listening to elitest BS, and read up on your class, which I know you already do, and you'll be fine. Your already one of the better tanks I've ran with in game, and considering the fact that you've never played as a tank before, that says something about your ability, and add to that your on a PS3 LOLOLOL

As a 50 WAR/PLD/BRD/MNK/DRG this is pretty bs. I have tanked every fight up to HM Garuda as WAR. People are ignorant and lazy if they balk at the sight of a WAR tank. I even coordinate 2x WAR ifrit runs (it's seriously easy, take 5 secs for a stun macro), and have single WAR tanked Garuda.
WAR starts to feel the heat on HM Titan, and even then if you go in with proper gear instead of trying to pug it just because you got your Garuda weapon early, you can tank that too (proper cooldown usage is a must).
Coil is the real wall, and it's a wall for everyone (some much less than others). If you meet some douche who has a preconceived notion about warriors, it's their problem and definitely not the community's outlook as a whole.

Thanks for the info, if people want to play the odd classes that some people shun than that's their choice. This whole setup is so we can do the content together as a FC of Zam and most of all have fun doing so. The people who make something work when others say it can't be done are people who think outside the box.

I would like to sign up as a Whm main class. As far as gear goes I am sitting at Garuda for my relic and I got 5 pieces of DL so far. When it comes to voice chat I am ok with either Ventrilo or Teamspeak.

I'm interested, but a probable as I might be in the middle of moving during that period. Anyway, if I am available, I'd like to think I'd have the gear. At titan for my relic, and cowl & pants left to fill out my DL stuff. Will know more as my schedule sorts itself out in the next week or so, as well as amount of time I'd be able to put in to be sure I'm ready.

Everyone above these video's has been added to the list. For some that are unsure if they will be ready in time, this is why I'm looking for more than what is required so we have a pool to choose from if one or more player is unavailable.

Here is a sample for those who have yet set foot in Bahamut Coil, this turn is broken down into 2 encounters with trash in the middle of them. It took our group 6 tries to get past the 1st boss due to communication breaking down, confusion in players roles (no voice chat used during this run).

Here is the final encounter, this was our last attempt out of 5 tries on this one. This fight went much smoother than our first encounter.

I'd do this as well, but I'm still working on getting a few DL pieces and my relic for my WHM. I only need like 3 more pieces of my DL set, 2 being accessories so no big deal there. On my relic I'm up to Titan. Yay.

I'm currently compiling a list of what members have listed that they need to be ready and will setup events for those to help them along soon (Relic quest line will be the main focus as getting DL is running dungeons).

As of this post healing slots are full, If anyone else would like to still be a main healer I can add you to a list as people we can call upon is the others are not available.
