Oh yeah, another good spell hunting trip for me, ^^......
Magic Fruit - As I said, I logged out here, so, I just picked up where I left off. What do you know, appearing right in front of me, was an Opo-Opo, ^^. Didn't learn, -_-, but, I did learn on the next one right after, ^^. So, off to a good start so far. I'm in the jungles already, so, no need to leave. I waltz on over to Yhoater while I'm out here.....
Light of Penance - After arriving, I ran in the direction of the Temple. Well, I checked a few Tonberries on my way there, and they didn't seem like they'd be that bad. So, instead of going all the way to the temple, I decided to mess around with some in these tunnels I kept running through. Woot, in and out deal, 1/1. I was like, uhhhhh, okay, thanks, ^^. It's been about 25min since I've been on the game now. What should I do?....
Flying Hip Press - Back in Al Zhabi now, I'm shouting for Teleport-Dem. I see a whm actually casting it while I'm shouting it, and he was alone. He cancels the casting with a /heal, sends me an invite, and off we go. I'm very UNFAMILIAR with Olton/Newton Movalpolos. I don't know where anything is. Matter of fact, I've only been here twice. Once when it was first added in the update, just to see what it was like a little bit, and the other was for the COP missions. So, I don't know where the Bugbears are at all. I'm running around and around. I finally run into someone, so, I ask for help on where to find them (which direction and such). She tells me to go North, which is kinda the direction I had just come from, but, I think meh, maybe I just over looked them (kinda hard to over look a Bugbear I think though). Turns out, it was completely the wrong direction (that really wasn't nice). I came back to where she was, and kept going passed her in the direction I "was" going the first time. What do you know, a Bugbear was only 3-4 seconds away from me the whole time, ;;. Anyway, I pull, I fight, I kill, I learn, I rejoice, I warp, ^^.
So far so good eh? Should I stop while I'm ahead? Hmmmm....
Death Scissors - Al Zhabi again, /sh Teleport-Mea time. I see a whm I know, and she Teles me. I'm in the maze now, and there's plenty plenty scorpions here. This was great. I didn't know that scorpions had so many moves though, yeesh. I was like, wow! No problems here, nothing much to tell. Go there, learn it, and be on your way....
Dimensional Death - Okay, ready to do what you wish you could do during ALL spell hunting runs. This and Venom Shell, has had to be my favorite spells to farm thus far (maybe except for the excitement of farming Capped zone spells, I had a blast doing those too). The reason I liked farming Dimensional Death and Venom Shell, was because, you didn't have to use the "Weak weapon to help the mob build TP" method. No, against these, you can just fight/beat them like they stole something. I don't mean spam them with Blu spells (You'll kill them too fast if you do, :P), but, a few spells here and there wouldn't hurt, but, I meant being able to just use your primary weapon. The reason, is because, (in my case) they will ALWAYS use Dimensional Death. Someone said it in another forum as well, but, I think this is THE only TP move the ever use/have. So, needless to say, this trip was cut short quickly. Every fight is a chance to learn.
Eyes On Me - Out of all the hunts today, next to the Tonberries, this one had to be the most dangerous.......lol, YEAH RIGHT, I'M A BLU, :P. Anyway, these do try everything they have to kill you, but, it doesn't help. Just wait for the move. There's plenty eyes around the glacier. More so towards/around the Xarcabard zoning area (just the REGION near it, not right exactly at it). Shouldn't be too much trouble. They used the move pretty frequent, it's just, they have a lot of moves to use though, so, it's not exactly always going to be quick fights (If you're like me, I wait until every pull/enemy uses the desired move before I kill it 95% of the time).
Well, that was my adventure yesterday. I'm currently hunting Bad Breath (0/3) and Maelstrom (0/1). That hunting trip took about 3hrs. (that's including travel time). Take the travel time away, and it was more like 1.5 hrs. or so. I had a great time, and will update once I gain some more levels (The level 62 spells are approaching, ;;). I'm not looking forward to farming those at all. As I've not heard good things from those farming trips yet, /sigh.
Oh, almost forgot...
Blu owns, :P
