Dunno if Sivi still reads this, but we knew each other briefly in game. I've seen this thread from the day it was created and thought how impressive it was that he was going for it. At the time, I still couldn't decide between Amano, or Guttler.
Then, Dyna was revamped. Suddently, I could do more with BST. Life is very busy for me, and I had to "Kill my darlings" as Stephen King once said. So I thought about it. Amano is a purpose weapon. It WILL show results and greatly enhance my SAM. But I had to Kill My Darlings... To make this game tolerable as opposed to insufferable, I had to put all my jobs aside and choose one. And BST has always been there for me. I did the most incredible things on this job. Not only that, but with my busy lifestyle, BST is a very good option for me. I can solo what I need when I need it within reason so...
I chose BST.
I chose to spend all of my time maximizing this job. SE comes out with a game mechanic/addition/revamp/etc... and it takes me ages to get anywhere respectable in one aspect of any of these addons. Then they add more, while I'm still working on very very old stuff.
So my BST friends, I'm letting you know that it is not only possible to obtain a Guttler, but it is possible solo. And with a very busy life. Since all aspects are now soloable, you can pick and choose to your schedule and not be held to a linkshell schedule. No more LS leaders getting rich off of your work while you dream about a relic.
Go Get One!!! Go now. Start. I don't care if there is BST competition. You deserve one if you are a dedicated BST, get one.
Ok pep talk over. I wish someone would've written that for me. I have obtained all of my drops solo. I'm just left with a money race now. I'm about 13/60 100coins left for Ogre Killer, and nearly all of the final left. But all the other drops are done. It's all about ancient currency now.
Thanks Sivi. I hope you get to read this because your thread that I've watched over time as well as the Dyna revamp finally got me to do this. I'll post what I've got so far for inspiration. I won't keep a public journal but I'm keeping it private for me. The screenshot is my journal in .xls (really a .png screenie).
So I'll still have SAM,BLU,( kind of MNK and BLM.) But I'm proud to say I'll have a Guttler someday. Duffman's%20Guttler%20Project Edited, May 14th 2012 3:09pm by Dufflite
