Savage Salvage

Recently, Rebme and I have been duoing Salvage. Once a day for about 3-4 months, and we've almost finished every set!

...Give or take a couple of casualties.

Anyway, now that Square Enix introduced a two month long double plan drop campaign for Salvage II, we decided to give it a try!

Our usual setup was PUP, Sharpshot (+Alternator), WHM/SCH and THF/WAR, but sometimes I would go MNK for certain bosses that have a wham bam thank you ma'am attack under 30%. Lookin' at you, Khimaira.

Salvage II is a lot more fun than the original, takes less time due to lack of dicking around with cells, and focuses on killing bosses to obtain upgrade items over killing countless fodder for a tiny chance of obtaining, well, anything.

Each area mimics the layout of the original event, but enemy location, type and level are totally different. Bosses are also much stronger than their chariot counterparts, but not impossible by a long shot.

The addition of 100% Linen Pouch drops from mega bosses is great news for my Kenkonken, and Reb's wallet. So far, we've defeated every boss and obtained a good 80% worth of 45 pieces, and also upgraded a few +1 pieces, too!

Sadly I only have a screenshot of this...

...mainly because that stingy Dvergr refuses to drop the feet!

We'll continue to do the event, focusing on plan NMs until it's over, then we'll probably take a break from it. So far though, it's been a great month!
