GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL!!!

I just managed to take care of one of my goals in FFXI: Red Mage Maat.

First attempt was last night, and I tried doing it melee with my Hornetneedle and Enstone II/Aero III. Didn't work out so well. Got him under 50% life within ~6.5 minutes, but that's when he decided I'd used enough ethers and potions at that point and smote my ass.

So this morning I trekked out to Beadeaux for another round with Ruby Quadav. There was a BST80 there, and he offered to kill Ruby for me. He used the ladybug pet, and got a RDM Testament on the first one (so that made me 2/2 on Testimony drops). Well, I warped back to Jeuno, and decided to give it a go.

I had Dark, Wind, and Stone Staves with me... but no Water Staff for Water III, and not a single grip since I'm normally meleeing with our static trio. Nothing special as far as other other gear - just what I wear for XP (including full AF).

Cleared the battle in 4 minutes, 56 seconds... just off the current record of 4 minutes, 49 seconds. I finished with 628 HP / 134 MP. Got a couple of skillups in Enfeebling, Elemental and Evastion, too.

And then we need to go testimony hunting for me, still.

Don't you have a portable samurai you were going to attempt that with? Seriously, you've never asked for help despite how many times I've asked, and I have no clue where the stupid things that drop your testimony are.

Yeah, that's my plan. Not asking for help, should have used different words. Still a while to go before I need to worry about it. Also, yes, they are stupid things, stupid things with a high level.
