Dynamis Lord! {Run away!}

It seems that Explorer has decided to dedicate all their Thursday runs to farming the various ice zones of Dynamis, namely Dynamis-Beaucedine and Dynamis-Xarcabard. On a more personal level, that unfortunately locks Akanea, who had wanted to join Explorer, out of the linkshell more or less, since he cannot attend the Sunday runs, where we take on the four basic cities.

Since we also largely lack the resources to clear Dynamis-Xarcabard, recently, we've taken to just farming the Dynamis-Beaucedine and Dynamis-Xarcabard zones for people's AF, which I certainly can't complain about, especially if it gets me one step closer to a Sorcerer's Petasos. In fact, one Petasos (our first, I think), even dropped in tonight's Dynamis-Xarcabard run! Now, only another eight more to go before it's my turn...-_-

Surprisingly enough, we actually managed to clear the whole zone, with about fifteen minutes to spare. With that, we decided to engage the Dynamis Lord, the {Mega Boss} of Dynamis-Xarcabard, and all the Dynamis zones for that matter, just for kicks. We knew we didn't stand a chance against him, since he normally requires a full 64-man raid with multiple RDM/DRKs on Chainspell-Stun duty, and enough firepower to make the Tu'Lia gods weep.

At the end of the day, after many weaponskills, Elemental-Sealed nukes, attacks, and what-have-you, we, as a linkshell had managed to deal a grand total of ZERO damage to him. I thought I knew the general outline to defeating him, but now I haven't the foggiest idea.

Maybe he has some riduculous form of Stoneskin up that we needed to take care of first before we could even start work on him. But flat, outright resisting nukes and other assorted magic is just wrong! >_< Did I also mention that he has permanent Chainspell on as one of his traits, and can create clones of himself?

Actually, I'm not sure just what the clones have to do with things, since we were kicked out of Dynamis soon after, but the Chainspell was our downfall. Despite our RDM/DRKs activating Chainspell and going berserk on Stun, one Stun got resisted. Of all things, he then decided to cast Sleepga, sending pretty much the entire linkshell to sleep. One jump from him and a smash from his great axe later, pretty much all the mages were killed. >_<

It was fun to at least see the Dynamis Lord, even though we were probably the equilavent of little mosquitoes against the likes of him. Someday, if we ever expand, we will take him down. But until then, it's more AF farming for us. ^^

On one last note, at least the sight at Xarcabard was rather funny after we were booted from the zone. ^^
