TOPIC | [P] Familiar coli drop challenge
So I'm not sure whether this has an "official" name, or if it even is a thing that other people are doing, however I will be doing another coli challenge.

THE GOAL: Get every coliseum familiar, through coliseum.

THE RULES: Boss familiars included! (This might take a while, yes.) Nothing I have so far will count, because I want to start from a blank slate. Coliseum familiars acquired through other means (chest drops, marketplace, AH etc) will not count. Venues don't need to be done in order, but everything needs to be kept track of. Multitasking (for example, keeping track of familiar drops if I'm primarily in the Mire to train fodder) is allowed.

WHY?

Short answer is, I want to make myself grind.

The long answer: I want those sweet, sweet drops. I want to expand my list of familiars (though I am not going for a completed bestiary and probably never will), and I definitely want duplicates for Baldwin and other purposes. I want to have a reason to go to venues I otherwise wouldn't go to and hopefully get some rare drops along the way too. And most of all, I want to give myself a goal to work towards in this game.

If you would like to help, I would appreciate some audio-based media reccommendations! Podcasts and such. Nothing political though, please.

If you're doing this yourself, I'd love to have a link!

[u][center][b]SANDSWEPT DELTA[/b][/center][/u] I honestly hate this venue aesthetically, but they say it has the best drop rate for noc chests so shrug. Though that seems to mean that I'm going to get everything but familiars.
