Hey guys, I have seen Urzol make multiple attempts at AV and always they end up running out of time due to getting stuck on one boss or another. In fact the last run of it last night with him, I was tanking and we had the last boss down to just as few hundred HP left (after several failed tries) when some of the seeds spawned and, as expected, we went down faster then the boss. It isn't that Urzol is a bad healer, in fact I think he is quite good, or that the DPS we had was that bad, they did good as well, it just appears that Urzol has horrible luck in this dungeon. (and that said I don't know how the other groups did but this applies to them as well if they have had the same luck)

So on that note, I want to make getting him through the hell hole we call AV a priority. I want to get the ideal DPS grouping together to get him though it. In my opinion, that would be BRD and BLM because BRDs have a great AOE Flaming Arrow that can down all the seeds if placed right and the BLM can LB to second set. If anyone wants to help me in this that can fill these roles, I would appreciate it.

Yea I had done two AV DF runs and like 8 times with the FC and finally we made it last night. It took two runs to get it last night too.. We had 3 people in our party that needed it. The second run no one died period and we did it in a little over 30 minutes and was absolutely a perfect run..... Lots of practice.


After the first attempt and running out of time I was thinking it was never going to happen.
So believe me I know how it feels and sorry you guys did not make it last night..


Believe me it is hard on tank and healer. The key to winning though is two DD's with aoe for the last boss to kill the pods when they pop. We had a bard and blm and that was the key.

I would help but I am WHM also...

I am so relieved to have AV over. Thanks to all that helped and thanks to Friggin Joe for hanging in with us all those attempts.

Urzol you will get it just dont give up....

I would be happy to help with this if you can't find a BLM or BRD. I am a SMN and can do the exact same things. Shadow flare works pretty much exactly the same way as the BRD AoE (but I can also stack it with Miasma II for more AoE damage) and also with Bane and a few DoTs I can take out a few seeds quickly, plus we share the same LB as BLM.

When we ran AV I was with Bart and a few others from FC. We were SMN, BLM, WAR and WHM and we downed each boss on the first attempt. That being said, I would definitely consider it one of the hardest pre-50 dungeons.

Edit: oops. Forgot that Shadow flare is a lvl 50 ability and AV caps at 49. I totally understand the request for ideal set up, but the offer still stands if you need to fill one of the roles.

I will take what I can get but was throwing that out there because the AOE DPS is about the best you can get with those 2. I just want to get him through this instance asap because I know (from doing Titan HM) how frustrating it can be having to run it over and over and over without completing it. Feels like you would have better luck knocking a brick wall down using only your head.

I'm available for this. Not an ACN-friendly place but I'll relieve on tanking duty if need be.
This is definitely THE thing to get behind you.
A good blm or capped bard is quite the asset for this.

Seriously awesome post Ary. Thanks so much for your assistance/praise. We were so close last night ><

You did forget to mention the most important part of the run though. J. Kainwreck, our BLM d/c'd about 1 minute into the 1st boss. Me, Ary and Xando downed him just the 3 of us and were just about to wrap up the first diremite room when J' got back in. I definitely don't think it was a matter of any of our skill level. ;)

I also got a pretty swank body piece... Embarrassed to say I was sporting a green level 38 piece when we went in lol. Also, gonna put my 50 DoH's to some use and whip up some HQ Mega Ethers and juice or something for the last boss. If I wasn't short 150mp for my second holy cast at the very end, the seeds wouldn't have sprouted and we'd have won easily.

I probably won't be able to do the run again until the weekend, or next Wednesday (12/11), but I'm definitely ready to get it behind me :D

Again, thanks for the rallying call.

If I'm on when you guys do this I'll help out, I've only done AV once so I wouldn't mind doing it again.

Yes. It was a resounding success.

We cleared everything on the first attempt. Me and Trellin were down when the last boss kicked it, but kick it she did!!

Many thanks to Ary, Fer'haal (sp?), and Trellin for their assistance!!
