Ok. Yes, Yes, Yes and Yes.
Maat turned out to be easier than I thought. I had to two hour because of sloppy cure jobs, but I overall kicked him from here into next week. So here’s how it went:
I got there, meditated (I’m not a SAM, I actualy did this in real life) then another WHM going to do the same thing (but poorly equiped for it) came by. We discussed what was going on and she went first. She got terribly owned. I tried to help her though what might of been wrong, but if I helped or didn’t, it was my turn. So I meditated again, ate my taco, rested for my MP and threw my test at the circle. I went into the battlefield, went into the circle’s rim and threw my Protect, Shell, Reraise, A yagudo drink, Aquaviel, Blink, Stoneskin and started chugging hi-ethers to almost full. Then I threw on my Opo-Opo Necklace, chugged some sleeping pots and got 100TP. I took a breath and in I went. It started out smoothly, I beat him down to the point of having my club actualy hurt him and blasted him with Hexa Strike. He counters with Benediction almost instantly.
At this point I knew I had the fight in the bag. We continued to exchange for a while but I tried throwing around some sloppy cures. I was in the red so I just ran for Benediction myself. Maat was at a bit over half at this point. I got up TP and let it loose. He was getting low now, so I unloaded a final Hexa and he died.
I went nuts at this point, but tried to keep my cool. I mean, look at the time! If I waited any longer to win, I’d of lost. Then I thought about something. Hey, I forgot to use my I-wing.
At this point I laughed uncontrolably. I sold the I-wing back to the AH. I made sure to go back and talk to him so I could get my level cap adjusted.
So what were the yess at the begining of the entry for?
Yes, I did beat Maat.
Yes, I did win by Meleeing.
Yes, it’s entirely possible to do before Black Halo.
Yes, I am better than you.
And that’s all in a good day. For now, I think I need a break.
