As a tank, I tend to not have too bad of issues with 1 DD speed runner. It's when you have 2, and they both start pulling or attacking whatever they want.

My favorite was being in a pt where the brd ran off before the last mob was dead, and pulled a new group, then the other dd would yell at me for not marking the mobs. I start marking the mobs based on what mob I thought the bard was attacking, and what happens? The other DD still attacks a different mob. The both jump off mobs before they are dead expecting me to finish them off, and to maintain hate on whatever they pounced on next.

We still made it through, but with a lot of complaining and whinning about me not keeping hate, and about me taking too long.

Ah fun stuff.

The speed runs are starting to get funny. Some people spend more time shouting for one, or asking in FC. Meanwhile, I'm finishing my second decently fast run with melee dps...and they're still shouting.

Then how many times does the tank die cause of one missed heal, wasting a bit more time. All ridiculous I tell ya.

That is hilarious!


I got into a WP last night through the DF, I'm on my BLM, Palidin tank, Monk dps and SCH healing. First couple pulls, the paladin is having trouble holding threat, but I'm just like w/e. After about 4 pulls the Monk is like "turn on Shield Oath", Paladins like "HAHA, I was wondering why I couldn't hold hate, I'm kind of high right now" I'm just like w/e, the whole run is a little wonky, trash all over the place, the SCH is trying to speed run I think, the tank isn't marking mobs so the monk and I keep pulling hate, whatever, The monk has his relic weapon, and the SCH had his Relic +1, I am by no means geared out, Mostly AF with 2 DL pieces and Ifirit weapon. We don't wipe, but struggle with the giant Tonberrys a few times, the Monk got killed by one at one point.

We get to the last boss, and keep in mind this is only my third time though WP and the last two were with full FC groups. I'm on add duty, which is fine because I've done it before. Now here's the thing, I don't know if I am supposed to try to DPS the boss while killing adds or not, the last two runs I kind of did, but mostly focused on adds cause I was a little nervous about the whole thing and didn't want to ***** up, either way we didn't have any problems then, so this time around I just focus on adds.

First attempt we wipe, I don't really know why, but I really didn't dps the boss hardly at all. On the run back the SCH is like "I dunno why I always get stuck with this slow dps", I respond with a "?" and he doesn't say anything. So, Next attempt I focus as much dps as I can on the boss while trying to drop adds at the same time, we down the boss, and the SCH just turns, runs to the exit and leaves. So I'm like, "Wow that guy was kind of a ****" and the tank is like, "We are all from the same FC" I just respond with "LOL" and leave. So I guess the SCH was ripping on the monk who was part of his own FC?

Either way, I think some people just need to learn to realax, the whole thing only took like 30 mins I think, which is fine with me so w/e.

On the plus side, I got the Darklight Square Shield off the last boss, which made me happy since I just got my Ifirit weapon on Wed night, but it is also the ugliest piece of gear I have ever seen.

Its all in the math. If I shout for 60 minutes but get 4 people who can do 10 10 minute WP runs thats 2.6 hours compared to just taking whoever and do 10 25 minute runs I still saved an hour and a half. The reality is probably I get a group in 45 minutes where doing 8 minute runs in 2 hours vs 5 hours doing 30-35 minute runs.

Shouting speed party caps ToM in 2 - 2.6 shouting included
Anything goes party caps ToM in 4.1 - 6.6 Perhaps higher for DF matching and derp factor

If I am farming Garuda weapons I want that 4 minute clear even if I have to shout an hour to build the party.

I don't do shout speedrun parties but I understand why they are desirable.
