The day of floor 25's boss fight is not that far in the future. And for it, they all will need to be as prepared as they can be. So Zandra hace trained all morning in her slime farm. But with ready wasnt only thru training. From the floor boss fight, more consumables needs to be used. And really think thru the team composition. So far they have been succesful with having nontank ppl sometimes step in as tank. This time, her opinion was to get dedicated players to cover the roles. She had already talked abou this with Hestia, but there was someone else she wanted opinions from. Someoen she had growed closer to during the latest boss fight. Someone that trusted her in a way noone else did. So she had planned a meeting with him. The berserk healer kills the last off the slimes and leaves the slime farm. As she thought earlier, planning wasnt all. They needed all buffs they could get. That was also a reason she asked Itzal. Not many other players would be able to safely walk thru a quest that gave such a good buff.

So she went down to floor 15 with Zita on her shoulder. She have always admired Kashirho. To have a whole village in the tree tops. She headed to a cafe beside one of the rope elevators. She entered "the wooden cake" where she ordered a cup of hot choclate and a blueberrypie slices that she started nomnoming while waiting for Itzal.

The rogue hacked and slashed through the slime monsters he had conjured up using the terminal.  The slime monsters were on high difficulty now with pretty good intelligence as an AI.  Shaped like actual players with their own slime weapons, they were meant to help him practice for when he fought player killers.  Technically he already had and won, but this was to keep his skills in top shape for when it happened.  When he received a message he quickly dismissed it until the fight had been concluded.  He was practicing not letting himself be distracted in the middle of a fight.  That would be vital to his survival.  Eventually of course he had taken down the last slime.  The console pulled up the menu for the slime farm and Itzal hit conclude.  The menu went away and the fighting terrain returned to the way it was.  Itzal opened up the menu and noticed it was a message from Zandra.  A quest?  As he read it he realized this was one he had never taken on before.  Huh.  He replied that he would be there shortly and closed the menu.  Yeeeaaah, he'd be there after he took a shower...

It didn't take long, as he really didn't like taking forever.  Walking on the fifteenth floor he began to head to the coordinates she sent him.  He looked at Velnia.  "Now don't forget Velnia.  She knows who we are so you don't have to hide your nature.  But please, for our sakes, don't go all Velnia hyper on her?"  Velnia just made a dragon grin as if to say, no promises.  Itzal rolled his eyes as they walked through crowds, some of the people trying to avoid them.  Eventually they reached where Zandra sat, apparently eating something.  "You have to admit, this floor is perfect for stalking someone.  The floor itself always holds the feeling over you that you're being watched, so instinct can't exactly warn you you're being followed."  He walked over and sat down at her table.  His hood still up, only Zandra would be able to see his face.  Velnia zipped around before landing on the table looking eagerly at Zandra's pie.  "Velnia...  No...  I'll buy you your own."  The dragon looked at him skeptically and he sighed.  "Alright two, but please keep yourself calm.  At the very least while we're in here...  We don't want another juggling incident."  The dragon chuckled as he ordered two pies.  He looked at Zandra with a smile.  "It's good to see you again Zandra.  And good choice of a quest to take.  The drop will certainly be worth it."

Zandra felt the wight of Zita landing on her shoulder and pekking her on the head. She looked up from her pie to see what had brought her attention. It was the scout that have appeared. ‘’I guess its time.’’ She said before Itzal got within hearing distance. She saw him saying something to his familiar as well, thou not a single word was herd. The king’s eagle went up to one of the beams in the café where its sharp eyes scanned the room, always watching.

Zandra smiled to the hidden face. Well, hidden for everyone except her. She nodded. ‘’That is true.’’ She said an looked up at Zita. ‘’Its moment like that it is good to have more then instincts to to warn you.’’

Zandra sat quiet and took another pieces of her pie as Itzal ordered some for his familiar that seemed jealous of the blueberries. As the order was placed Zandra leaned back on the back of the chair with a relaxed expression. ‘’It’s good to see you to. I’m glad you havent run away and got yourself killed or something. And yepp, this drop is really strong. Like adding an extra rank of battle healing.’’ She paused before she continue. ‘’Thou, the quest is only one reason I wanted to meet. There is something else I wanna talk about. Something that is more important then just a buff.’’ She looked at him, her face turned serious as her crimson eyes met the ash in his.

Itzal waited patiently for the pie to be finished and brought out.  Or more accurately he was waiting for Velnia.  The silver dragon was clearly anxious for her sweets to arrive, and was doing everything in her power to not start flying to and fro all over the place.  One could say her energy made her an exact opposite of Zito.  Itzal was being watchful of his surroundings as well, however he was less concerned about a surprise attack in the middle of town than Zita was.  Itzal sighed as she agreed with him on the matter of this floor and how instincts weren't of much use.  "Having the search skill can be very useful outside of finding materials.  Unfortunately it's the only thing I'm really skilled in.  My damage output is unbelievably weak since I use the straight sword.  But still...  I never want to use anything besides it."  He would be of far greater help if he'd only switch to rapier, martial arts, or the two handed battle ax skill.  But none of those matched his fighting style.  He'd never get used to it.

When she mentioned running away or getting himself killed Itzal chuckled and shook his head.  "Never.  I made a promise, and I never break a promise."  He looked out the window for a moment.  "Still.  This item really is useful.  If players get high enough level to where they can just grind it with ease, this would be an excellent front lining staple with bosses becoming so powerful as of late."  He was silent as he thought about this when Zandra added that it wasn't the only reason she wanted to meet.  How there was something important she needed to discuss.  Itzal folded his hands on the table and nodded.  He wasn't showing fear or concern, but he was focused.  Calm.  His blue eyes staring steadily back into her red eyes.  "Well, you have my attention.  What's up?"

Zandra took some moments to think thru how she should begin. She moved her hand thru her hair, unintentionally making the hood fall down. She cleared her throat once and started talking. ’’So, I am pretty sure, or well, I am sure you know about our current situation is on the frontlines. The latest floor boss fight is an excellent example. If we want to have a chance to reach floor one hundred, we can’t continue like this for much longer. Take our party for example, Sey is actually not a tank. He changed his build because we needed another tank. I have herd he changed back to dps after Levi was dead. What I wanna say with that is, we need dedicated players for the roles. We was lucky none died this time. But we may not be that lucky next time.’’ She grit her teeths and her face turned to something between sad and annoyance. ‘’But I’m not sure how I will make this happen. So wanted to ask for your help. First if you have any idea how to do it. And second if you want to help me doing it.’’ She looked at the young man, waiting for his answer.

Itzal nodded as he closed his eyes, agreeing with her completely.  He rested his head on his hands as he thought for a little bit.  Tanks were needed, but so were full time supporters.  They needed players who could buff the party as well as heal them up.  Because Hestia wasn't a full supporter they had that rather painful issue.  They were in need of supporters as well as tanks, and fast.  He tapped his foot as he thought about this.  "...The only player I know of who could possibly make a last minute stand in is Domarus, but he's still tier two.  If we could get him to level up more and change his skills, even temporarily, then he could act as a tank until someone else comes along.  It means we lose another AoE user, but lesser of evils and all that.  In the long run, I can try and scout out some players and see if we can encourage the weaker players to become tanks.  However, we also need full-time supporters as well.  Supporters who have every important buff first aid can provide.  Hestia didn't have any of those mods, and because of this she couldn't enhance anyone's damage or defense.  It was...  Not pretty."

He sighed and tapped his finger.  "These bosses aren't just going to be a charge in and seize the day anymore.  Not just in numbers either.  We really have to strategize from now on.  We don't have any other choice.  Hestia suggested having players go in and scout the boss out before teleporting out of there.  It's a good idea, but if the boss has extreme damage that would be extremely risky.  We should have as many buffs as well...  I don't know, this requires some thought."

Zandra placed her elbows on the table and leaned her head her thumbs while the rest of the fingers massaged the sides of her forehead as she closesd her eyes in thought. ‘’I don’t Domarus is the right player to do that. The two handed axe’s superior aoe damage is something we shouldn’t remove.’’ She didn’t said that to brag, it was just a fact. The game was way to unbalanced, to have a weapon have a stronger aoe then most other weapons single target was just stupid of the system. But better use any exploit as long as it is available. ‘’If we shall list it.’’ She opened her eyes and started swiping in the air. A few moments later she had a text box with a ketboard below. She started writing as she spoke. ‘’The pure and dedicated tanks we have is first ofcourse Calrex. And Hestia should be classed as a tank. Yes she can heal, but her main focus should be tank duty. There we have two partys. Those are the two that we can call true tanks. Lately I have really lost info on the tier two players. And yes you are right with the support, we need that as well. Actually about that, it is much easier to cover that role compared to tank. To be a tank, you picking up heavy armor with mods, block, howl etc. For support you only need first aid and its mods.’’ She said before looking up at him. ‘’Any input on that?’’

Itzal thought about this for a little bit.  "Yes, it does make sense that we'd keep Domarus where he is.  In that case, we just need to find any tier two tanks and train them up as quickly as possible."  He listened to her talk about how Calrex and Hestia were the official tanks.  The only supporters he knew of that they had were Zandra and another girl.  However that girl vanished pretty quickly when she nearly died in the fight.  Which brought up another concern...  "Supporters should have heavy armor and battle healing too if you want my honest opinion.  They're vital and as such they need to have every form of protection as possible...  That being said, by the time they reach tier three they should already have this.  In all honesty, anyone who reaches the frontlines where we are now should have every skill and item they require already.  It's just a matter of finding people willing to actually take the role, and it has to be their choice.  I don't like the idea of forcing someone to take all the hits...  We need to find everyone who is tier two and try to help them level up as often as possible.  If we can do that, we can bring tanks to the frontlines quickly."

She nodded as reply to his opinions. ‘’That is true. Battle healing is a skill everyone, and I mean everyone, should have. DPS as well. And ofcourse you need armor as support as well, thou to take the support role is probably the safest position you can have. Not building up any hate making them not target you. Also, just because you are taking the support role for your party, dosent mean you are healing every turn, you will, or should, attack the enemy as well. That we need people to understand.’’ She paused a bit before continuing. ‘’And yes, we need to scout the tier twos, find anyone that would take up the task. Then support them if they need anything in form of gear, materials or money.’’ She nodded. ‘’I definitely made right choice asking you about this.’’ She said and smiled a friendly smile at Itzal. Then something hit her thought. ‘’Sorry to ask but, what about you? What would you say about picking up first aid? Of course I understand if you don’t want to, just a friendly question.’’

Itzal listened to her speak and added onto it.  "At the same time though, while healers can attack when they have the opportunity, they should also have the support mods so that depending on the situation, they can grant buffs to the party as needed.  Such as sharpness, barrier, etc."  The server brought over to them two pies as ordered and Itzal pushed them over to Velnia who licked her lips and dug right in.  About ten seconds into her feast she took some and offered it to Zita, wondering if he liked food too.  When she smiled and commented how she made a good choice with him, Itzal smiled embarrassed like.  "Strategizing's all I'm good for with my minimal damage I'm afraid, so I have to be."  When she suggested he pick up first aid his face shifted over to mild sorrow and shook his head.  "I'm afraid that isn't exactly possible.  Not right now at least.  You see, my searching skills are vital if we want to find labyrinths on time.  Not to mention my ability to find materials is just as important if I'm going to stock up the frontlines enough to get everyone their consumables on time.  On top of this, the only other skills I have are to either increase my damage as much as possible, or keep me alive.  And I'll need those whenever I hunt down player killers to keep people safe.  Once I get the surprise attack mod however, I can save up for first aid and do my best to aid everyone in that area as much as I possibly can."
