Hey!

Just got a quick question. More and more people are finishing their Aeonic Weapons.

I myself do not have that much playtime to go by and it's tough to get a schedule going because I got 1½ year old son who needs my attention.

My question is, is it possible to semi-solo an Aeonic Weapon? I'm thinking about building the 50k Escha Beads. As I understand, they are obtainable by killing Escha NM's. Are some soloable or do you need a 6 man party?

You will not be able to solo an Aeonic. This will require a decently skilled and competent party/alliance to defeat the level 145-150 NMs in Escha.

Others in the 135 and below range are soloable or "soloable" with trusts, but require a good amount of skill as a player to achieve. Overall, that doesn't mater as you can not solo the HELMs in Reisenjima or Kirin and Warden of Courage in Ru'Aun.

I'd say aeonics are the only ultimate weapon that you can't solo.
They require no currency, and can't be bought (except through mercing). 17/85 of the NMs have never been reported as being killed by only 1 person.

This guy who is "self-banned" from FFXIAH forums is correct.

A casual player isn't likely to be able to handle the 135 NM's solo either, but entirely possible to contribute to a group to do so.

1 character, not person

85/85 soloed reliably

I knew someone was gonna point that out, was too lazy to fix.
And 1 person doing it involves a lot of complex things most people don't have access too along with at least 6 well-geared characters.

I would love to see a stream or video of 1 person soloing Albumen. Or Erinys. ***or any of the Reisenjima T3, Helms or WoC for that matter.

I'm not saying it cannot be done but until I see it I have to call bull sheet. Actually, I am saying it cannot be done. I don't see it being possible with the time limits and mechanics combined.

Edit: 1 character is what I am questioning - If someone is good enough to OctoBox then maybe I can see it. With that being said if you can Octobox these NM's reliably I'll hire you tomorrow to come work for me!
