Heh. I think you're both younger than I am, and I just passed seventh a month ago:

1st session back after a ~2 year hiatus for school purposes...cashed in ~300 free library ranks, and...

12/6/15 3:31:58a Honor thinks, "Congratulations go out to Alces, who has just passed the seventh circle fighter test."

Pretty good night. :)

Let's see...getting to 7th circle took ~15 years of casual play with intermittent years-long hiatuses and at least one strategic untraining, so...

8th circle passage is projected for ~2021. :roll:

:shock: My fighter friends that have been in the free library or 35c / zodiac since circa 2005 and who have never been on a hunt, ever, mostly passed 7th circle 2-3 years ago and are getting halfway through the eighth circle test... are you a brewery champion or something? (you are a champion, right? I totally get how rangers take way longer to pass the circle tests since so many of ours ranks aren't useful or are far less useful in the test than in real hunts.)

It'd be interesting to see the 8th • healer list though if anyone ever takes over this thread management from Shadrock. I imagine that's still a pretty small crew of people, given how crazy much harder it is than 7th •.


VVV: Yeah, I guess it's just hard in the way of "no healer would ever train specifically for this, and getting there with Respia will take forever".

From what I've seen, 8th circle healer is not all that hard - it's just tons of Faustus - 800 seems to be the sweet spot from what I've seen (or a ton of supplemental ranks - i.e. the most healer ranks of anyone in the lands.) I'd put the number of 8th circle around 6-12 (most being tons of Faustus).

As an example, Falinus heals Glory "more than half" every time he takes the 8th circle test. He could train 400 more Faustus and pass or he could train 2000 more Higgy/Respia. He has the Respia to support that much Faustus so the choice is clear if he wanted to pass it "soon" (luckily he doesn't care about it).

Lorikeet passed 8th in September, 2012 with 460 Faustus, 733 Higgrus, 1136 Sespus, and 2053 Respia. Did it running, and not standing still, using armor.
