    It's probably a trade-off for Knight Watch.

    Yesssss also have Nimzo at lvl 69 to pass around. I have my DW III gear and DQ V gear now. I'm a happy camper. I was considering working on Dhoulmagus for the DQ IV gear, but...

    Bumblo: What level do you plan on getting Dhoulmagus to by PAX? 57-68 would be amazing 8D

    Well I personally would prefer legacy maps at level 1 so I can get a crack at my own legacy gear, so I figured I'd grab an extra from murdaw and clear it just for sharing. Besides, the thought of dealing with Dhoulmagus' AoE knockdown at higher levels is givin me the jibblies :P

    Ah, I see. When you said you were leveling him up for the gear I thought you had planned to get ALL the gear from him, therefore reaching a minimum of 69 for the last item (the clothes).

    For my current team, getting to that level on Nimzo (easy) and Zoma (annoying) was just time consuming. That's why when I saw you were leveling up on my next project I glad that I might be able to save some time XD Ah, well. Time to get started on it then!

    All right, unless Greygnarl happens to drop Dragonlord in the next couple of days, I think I'm settled for PAX.

    @rmalena Ark Gladiator 99+1
    Zoma lvl 1, Estark lvl 1, Baramos lvl 1, Murdaw lvl 1, Dhoulmagus lvl 1, Masayuki

    I'll definitely be at the Friday 3pm event, and I'd be happy to just trade one of these if we do end up wanting to split up sharing the rare maps.

    for people who can't make monday's shindig (like myself) are there any plans for swaps on saturday/sunday? I plan to have my DS tagging all day (as do many people I imagine) but it would be good to know of any bigger meets for the rare map swapping.

    I might be able to do Monday morning, but I fly out around noon, so it'd have to be semi-early.

    Stop me if I'm wrong, because my first real exposure to the multiplayer aspects of this game will be at PAX, but you can't share your first map, right? The one you get from Christopher Collapsus? (Not that anyone who's far in the game would want it, anyway.) I've beaten that one, and I got a map drop from Equinox, but I'm totally stumped as to where this second map is, and I'd like to have something to offer during the tag sessions, at least.

    you *can* share the first map...but everyone has it already.

    edit: Also, I'm pretty sure that "Monday" meetup was a typo of "Friday".

    You can share any map, but sharing storyline maps is hopefully pointless unless someone wants multiple copies :)

    I'll be staying at the Camlin Wed-Wed (1.5 blocks from main Conv Center entrance.), and the last thing we want to do is make someone miss their flights :)

    Legacy bosses are good to have multiples of, one to keep at lvl 1 to pass around and others to level to certain item drops ex: 1,4,916,99 for Dragonlord so that you always have a map with a specific item and never have to level again (and one at 99 just for the sake of 99)

    There are some regular grotto maps that could be wanted, S rank of each location for the bestiary and such. Maps with good chests in good locations, specific name maps for quests (took me forever to get a "silver" map to drop). Who knows, maybe you have something someone wants!

    Hrm. First time posting here, but I've got every legacy map as well as the Masayuki, Kawasaki and Silver Marsh of Bane 58s.

    (As well as Volcano, Ice and Water grottos with S-rank monsters (The highest rank))

    ...and yeah, they're all legit as far as I know.

    Hero is "Sam", class is probably Gladiator 99+1, wearing the Dragon Warrior Armor.

    No twitter account, but I'll try to make at least the Friday meet up if not the others.

    I'll also being wearing a Dragon Quest IX Slime hat that I won.

    when you put a status in twitter, just do something like "Heading over to the DS Lounge on the 3rd floor for some metal slime grinding #paxdqix"

    then anyone else can go on twitter and search for the term "#paxdqix" and pull up only tweets that have that in them. Makes it a lot easier to find.

    I'll be there, hopefully. Along with my wife.

    I should be a 60 Warrior by that point with 6 or 7 classes brought up to 100 for the passives. No revocations.

    No super-sexy maps to speak of as my team is kind of gimp, but hopefully I can be of some assistance. :D

    I just found my first map with MKS two days ago - Sapphire Moor of Gloom, Lv. 69 (Boss is Fowleye). The MKS show up on the 5th floor, but the levels to get there are short. I'll have that to share.

    Does anyone want to meet up tomorrow afternoon, pre-PAX? Meeting a friend at his work for board games from 1-2 downtown...I could show up at a hotel or host at my place in the Univ. District afterward.

    Sad, but I wimped out. No flag this year. I went with a lighter touch. Anyway, if you see this bag running around PAX, I've got some maps for you.

    These may still be poorly sized. Either that, or my cache hates me.

    Updated. I think this is going to be the last time, so here are some final instructs for all you volunteers! Please, please look over the OP, and check to see which map you have that is either not on the list, or the one that is the least represented. If you find yourself matched with others in your group, send them a PM or make a note and look for them on Friday, so that you can co-ordinate.

    Remember, this is a community effort for everyone to get as many awesome maps as possible. Thanks for participating, and Twitter the shit out of it.

    I'll definitely be at the meetups bu I sadly don't have any good maps. :( I've been attempting to farm them at work but due to not getting any good slime maps and getting bored trying to find the LMS on Slime Hill my max level character is my main which is a Paladin level 47, though with a bunch of other classes in the 20s. Staying at the Hyatt at Olive 8(here now until Monday night) and my twitter is Natoriusx if anyone wants to share some maps with me. :p Otherwise see some of you guys at the meetups.
