Battle Plan:

Zakum Arms

1) PT 1 to take down 2 TOP RIGHT arms 1st, follow by the bottom 2 arms.

2)PT 2 to take down CURSE arm 1st, follow by the 2 TOP LEFT arms.

3)PT 4 to help down right HEALING ARM 1st, follow by the rest of the arms.

4)PT 3 to genesis all the way, hitting all 8 arms.

Zakum Body 1, 2, 3

1) Bishop to use AR on body during W/D up. On Bahamut if possible.

2) Rest of party, attack as usual.

Down of Zakum

To prevent any conflict, this will be a FFA Zak.

I would suggest donating skillbooks to fellow guildmates who need them. (i.e TT20, gene20)


I hear congratulations are in order.

There are many things we congratulate someone for.
Apart from the countless level-ups you have all achieved this week, we have also managed to down a few zaks, and if you haven’t heard already, we finally killed the Big Bad Balrog!
Having said that,Β many congratulations and thank you to the all of you who participated & aided in the victorious battle!

NEW* Party splitting exp formula released

August 19, 2009 by

Im not sure how accurate this might be but it was released in kMST couple of days ago.

The current formula which we are using right now,

Your own kills:
Party’s total exp from monster * (0.2 + 0.8 * your level / sum of all levels of party members gaining exp)

Leeched from others:
Party’s total exp from monster * (0.8 * your level / sum of all levels of party members gaining exp)

You can’t get more than 110% of the monster’s exp from one monster

And the new soon-to-be implemented exp formula

Your own kills:
Party’s total exp from monster * (0.6 + 0.4 * your level / sum of all levels of party members gaining exp)

Leeched from others:
Party’s total exp from monster * (0.4 * your level / sum of all levels of party members gaining exp)

The max 110% per monster holy symbol restriction was taken out.

Basically you received lesser or even none exp when leeching in a party now.. hope it wont come to MSEA soon!

Sunshine Scarlion 180809

August 19, 2009 by

Poor alvin has been left helmless for the past few days after destroying a couple of Scarlion helms during our last few trips. Today wasnt his day either, with a +8 slots helm destroying on the 9th slot, how unlucky can a person gets!

But things was looking good on kei’s side. 2 x 30% and 5 slots 70%, he managed to get a whoopping +34int Scarlion helm. Grats keith! πŸ˜€ same grats to makky for sucessfully defeating Scarlion on his 1st v-trip to MYB. Congrats!

Some shots to share during the boss fight!

Balrog’s Damage Reflection *UPDATED!*

August 17, 2009 by

Okie so all these while we have been looking at the horns with the zebra looking strips of white lines.. but we didnt realised the spell animation was all the while there.

Take a look at Balrog’s LEFT shoulder pad when he(or she? LOL) is bout to cast the Damage Reflection skill, notice the red circle around it before the spell is casted? It look abit similiar to the Flame Wizard skill which I dunno the skill name ><"

Another SS of the D.R skill

Once you see a red circle around it’s left should pad, time to stop hitting. Oh another note to add, the moment Balrog starts to cast it D.R skill, the bottom Right arm will be dead. Close to 25% the Left arm will be dead. So the tatic to hit Balrog is to keep hitting it’s head, the 2 arms will dies by itself. I believe the overall HP of the rog is just like HT’s body/tail/legs where they share the overall HP of the boss (the hp bar on top) I hope its not confusing to all.. 😦
