Me and my ls are planning on farming 75 horns with brew technique, but we are just wondering weather or not PLD + WAR can do 30k+ sanguin blades like BLU can?

Also if you have any other strats, please let me know ^^

Thanks :O

I wanna get in multipele kills with a brew, not just one. Thats a waste .. I get some people saying 2-3 on brew, 7-9, 10+. I just dunno what'd be best to get 10 kills on a brew

Flash Nova is also good. Just use holy mountain, beyond, and whatever else 3rd atma you wanna use. I just threw in ultimate for the heck of it.

10 per brew is pretty much reserved only for Corsair's Low-Orbit Ion Cannon. (Wildfire)

Yep, that's about as many as we get with COR brew.

@OP: As WAR or PLD with Sanguine blade, I'm not entirely sure. I've tried other WSs on other jobs like Aeolian edge on DNC and it took about 3-4 WSs iirc.

If there's no people fussing around the other Khimaira's ??? we use that to stop the timer; Less walking vs. taking it to the martello. Also bring 1 stunner for safety, it usually tries to nuke itself when it pops to level up.

You say lock the brew @ ??? but it takes time to repop after death, so you wasting brew timer no?
And also, would Blade Yu/Hi be a good choice for brewing?

the top 5 weaponskills for brewing would be Wildfire(Fire) -> Leaden Salute(Darkness) -> Sanguined Blade(Darkness) -> Trueflight(Light) -> Cataclysm(Darkness Aoe)

But they are all elemental so watch for NM's with resistances to that element. A good build for that ws can deal much more dmg(atmas/obis/weapon if it applies etc/weather if you have a scholar or twlight cape job even would boost dmg 5%)

like a pld spamming Cataclysm with Anrin Obi, darkness weather (due to a scholar) and martial staff with smiting blow and atma of the cosmos would do crazy more dmg than normal Catalcysm brewing with Pluto's Staff blindly

The following I JUST posted from someone asking on my thread about this ***. Let me just say it will take you closer to 50 pops than 75, definitely have TH. You can flame my choice of weapon skill if you wish, but I think my pulling strategy is pretty solid.


You're not the first person to ask this so I'll explain. In short, Hi > Hi is darkness and is really *** sweet, I was able to get four in per pull (a fair amount, but you can definitely do better - just make sure crit+ damage is capped out if you do a physical WS). The best way to pull is the following:

1. Every person who's popping should sub thief for flee, use the job ability seconds before you pop.
2. After you pop run back to the Martello, flee should run out just as you hit the top of the hill.
3. Have someone standing directly east of the Martello whose sole purpose is to stun and run to the brewer who's holding it. This is a little hard to explain, but basically you can stun apademak while he's running through the canyon and you NEED to so that he doesn't go unclaimed. You'll notice that directly east of the martello puts you pretty high up on the hill's cliff and that's true and by design.
4. It's helpful to have several stuns and a fresh set of five shadows. Enstun and fulmination are incredibly annoying and if more than 3-4 go off during your brew you will have a problem fitting in a fourth. I'd recommend using ANY screen to know when you have a minute left. Petrify screen is the best since if you get in bad placement (should always be from the side) you won't get petrified. Physical weapon skills do hit for full damage when double weakened. During one very very good run I got off 4.9 - my brew ran off a second before I finished but a sam came in and meikyo'd the rest.

I also recommend having someone whose sole responsibility is to cover your *** when this doesn't work. Maybe 2-3 times out of 45 I would have lost the pull without that person for whatever reason I do not know.

Just killed this guy a couple of times last night. He is absolutely ridiculous! It was our first time and we killed 2 or 3 but lost a 4th.

I was locking brew on the conflux and I have to agree that checking Dhorme's ??? would be much closer to the pull.

Also I see that there needs to be a stunner at the Apademok pop because he may cast thunder on himself first thing and level up. Fulmination will stun a brewer and believe me that SUCKS.

This guy needs to be fought with a die-hard mentality of preventing him from leveling up if you expect to have any time to proc yellow/red/blue. Once he gains access to Fulmination it's a losing battle. Next time I fight him I would have 2 BLM's on hand to stun him between his pop and brewer at Dhorme ???. Preventing access to Fulmination seems like it should be an absolute top priority.

if you are brewing, why not just fight it at the pop spot? as long as u stun the first spell it casts, its easy peasy. just pull a marid close by and kill to pop a chest ready to click onto once apademak dies

I did over 150 Apademak horns with no brews. Yes he will ALWAYS open with a spell. We did it with two tanks whm blm. Blm/brd with fast cast and haste set up was enough to stun 99% of the spells. He is manageable if he gets access to fulm. The problem is he can level up from killing people, so it's easier to lose control.

For a non-brew strat if you want, have the tanks stand on the sides and just stun spells. A quick curaga 3-4 after Dread was more than enough to keep everyone capped. With 90 Kannagi and 90 Vere it was a 5-7 minute kill.
