Was hoping to get some good discussion going which could help people bridge the gear gap to start moving through TBL. I did my first xp camp in Stratos last night and it went OK. I died several times throughout the evening on trash mobs, but I think all of them were while I was typing in the group. The named we did last night was Infinite Horizon Star. I chose this camp specifically because it was one of the only named I could see that didn’t AE/nuke. We wiped on him once, rebuffed, waited for burns to come back, and killed him the second try. His ability was to make everyone cast spells slower, which in hindsight may have been more menacing than an AE. Group was: 5kac/200k hp/16kAA fully buffed pal Nec geared worse than pal Another pal that is grouped geared Raid geared bard Group geared wizard Cleric merc Our kill had me die at around 50% (I took 1 round of 35k,35k,35k,30k,30k —> dead) and the other pally picked up tanking for the remainder of the fight. Tonight, I am going to try Wild Blossom Star. It looks like he doesn’t AE but he may spawn adds, which I am hoping will be easily controlled with nec root punt. Does anyone else have any insight on some easier nameds to start gearing up on in Stratos? Or conversely, some named that should most likely be avoided when primary focus is to gear up/xp (I am disgusted by the xp rate! Twice as slow as HS, but it is what it is I guess).
