What did I do today> excellent question. lets break it down to what did i do in the last 24 hours.

I had a nice {Exciting} day at work of solving other people's proble,

Upon getting home I log into th e wonderfull game we all play and remember Im helping some ls mates get promy holla done. Well we get two full parties (including people we dont knwo) and head out. I buy a stack of Dark bass for good luck and make everyone take one. .... serious.

the other party is succesfull but in my party (at abot 10% boos health) astral goes off just in tim to be hit with sleepga and cursega. The SMN's 2 hour and my manafont get taken out by this sleep. And we die ;_;

Then I loose internet conection.

I head out to the bar...this is where the night gets funerer. I strat drinking and decide to head to a buddies house. Chill there for a bit then head back to the bar to drink the night away. I play pool and make some beautifull shots but scratch the 8ball :-(

I spend the rest of the night hitting on some out-of-my-league gal.

3:30 am rolls around and I head out, grab taco-bell, and go to work to sleep until 6am.

WELL CHECK THIS ! I get in about 25 min ago and my two bosses are here early!?!?!

So now Im at a computer about 10 feet from them pretending I'm not drunk as all hell lol orz!>!>!

Ohh dear god if you love me at all please get me through this day without being fired.

~Busa

EDIT: I claim this page as mine!! drunk pwns.

Level 75 blm on the way to party. Other ppl got aggro, I end up dying 2 times, had to take a raise one each time.

The camps where so crowded that we only pulled in 2k in 2 hrs.
Running around to different camps while food just wears off.

Got full hq swimsuits and 2.5 stacks of tickets.

Was supposed to do wsnm retrubution, but well, the people that said they would help aren't on.

Watched back episodes of Stargate Atlantis and Battlestar Galactica.

Shortest spawntime have been 19min and longest 3 hours 34min.

I'm so tired of camping this thing

Don't crash my Red Mage's parade man. So what if he's the only one that keeps this post alive. It all the small victories that one can take pride in. Besides that, you didn't say what you did today :P

Considering I didn't know how long maintenence would take, I decided to help with a little home improvement <does a Tim Allen grunt>
Made Burritos and took a ciesta <sp>
Now its time to pop open a cold one and tip it Hyabusa's accomplishments

Thanks alot Sym... ohh uber Elvaan of Tachi: Gekko.

Yeah I'm quite sad to see that no one ever posts in here >.<; but I will continue to keep this post alive even if I bore you all to death.

So here's something to break up the monotiny of it all...I was a TOTAL jackass two days ago.

It all started when we headed out to EXP in boy tree and we made the mistake of getting a NIN tank (just kidding to all the good NIN tanks I know out there)

This was some random JP Galka NIN named Arakume or something like that, I can't rememeber right now. Well, he's just having himself a little bitch fest all night with his broken Engrish spamming things like "why cure me slow" x 17 "Haste"x18 when I was hasting the @#%^ every fight.

Well he continues to spam so I get frustrated and start spaming the most obvious sh*t he should be doing...all you see coming from me is...
"Hit the mob" "Hit it again" "ok this time miss it" "Cast Utsusemi on yourself" "Ok miss it" "Hit it again"

This pisses him off. Then when the WHM D/C's we try to auto-translate whats going on, and all he says like 3 times in a row is "I hp now"

After that I send him probably the meanest /tell I've ever sent anyone "1945 Hiroshima {Yes, please}...{Japanease}{Burst} {/disguested}{Blacklist}{/welcome}"

Then we wait for another tank and finally get going again. It's quite late now and another party shows up so pulls are further between now but doing ok. Then some group with a few 70+ show up to either skill up or get Goobue Humus for windy mission's i assume, but then their BRD "Lionheart" or something pulls the crab that our RNG just grabed.

so again I turn into a huge @#%^ "Hey lionheart...you know what's awesome? Exping on crabs...lots of fun"

then we yell back and forth...his favorite phrase seems to be "stfu". The I blacklisted him and told him BRD's were "Wannabe RDM's" and continued to exp.

Well we all get tired and go back to jueno, and Im at 1K tnl >.<;

I think when I got home I punched my mog in the face for being so frustrated then I remembered its just a game an went to bed.

I never post in this thing on the day that I do anything, only the next day when I did something interesting the previous night, so everything I post is gonna be one day removed.

Yesterday, I switched over to 19WAR/9THF and leveled my Great Axe up to 31 in East Sarutabaruta and Tahrongi Canyon. I've been wanting to be a DD for a long time, but I don't wanna level DRG or DRK up from 0. Thought I'd give this combo a try, I've heard good things happen when I hit 30.

My plan was to go to Valk and finish up great axe skill on the bunnies there, but I got an invite while I was in Jeuno to Qufim so I decided to try that. Not good. I was SERIOUSLY gimped. Funny thing was that no one seemed to care. Half the group was japanese and we had a PLer.

The PLer had on strange gear, all DRG gear and all below level 20. She let a few people die, so not a very good PL. I never died cause I never got agro, couldn't hit hardly at all. I did get my Great Axe Skill up to 38 in that group. But I really hated being the newb in the group, don't wanna let that happen again.

Anyways, I'll be off to Valk tonight to murder some bunnies. I hate Bunnies.

Hey I actually have something, don't really think anyone reads theses anymore but hey I know Hyabusa will at least get to see it :P


Ok so I decide I'm going to XP yesterday and put flag up. 5 mins go by when Accolade (might have mispelled) sends me a tell asking if I need Zilrat Mission 5. I say yeah and he sends me a invite.

We got a bunch of other people (11 total people I belive) and head out for Ifrits Cualdren >.<

So we start running around inside trying to get to the other end. Toots became our guide (and did a great job) Acco gave out postions. Well once we started like any event some get left behind >.<

Toots goes back for them and we continue on. During this time we had this Rdm die, it would not be his last :(
We get to a area and throw oils and powders back on just to watch the Rdm go down again. It just wasn't his night.

Now this is where the tale gets good, we come accross the room with the bridge and ASH DRAGON. He has True Sight so we had to go around him. One of the Blms runs in front of him and dies. So now everyone is safly on the other side and almost done with the quest but we have to raise the Blm.

So our Thf goes out and distracts the Dragon, for some reason no one could raise the Blm. Our Thf fails to get to far and dies. Someone else dies and I decide to throw up all my buffs that I can, I was Drg/Whm so Reraise, stoneskin, blink, protect2, and shell. Two more go down, thats almost half of us now.

Thats when I decide to do something really crazy. I run past everyone towards the ASH DRAGON, at this time everyone is yelling WTF are you doing, but I had no time to type back.

The Dragon and everything else down there began to follow me, One Wyvern, One Pissed off ASH DRAGON, and a couple Bombs.
During this time Toots understands what I am doing and yells "get them up now!" At this point I had a Macro for just a emergency, I pressed it. All through out Ifrits Cualdren you could here me shout " LETS DO THIS !!! LEROY JINKINS!!!"

I continue running over the bridge and up the tunnel, but the stupid Dragon has a Draw In move >.< well it wasn't like I planned to live anyways. I ended up lasting roughly 25-30 secs.

Everyone was raised and because I dragged everything to the other side they were able to make it safely. I had a couple people send me tells thanking me, which felt good.

After the mobs cleared away I raised myself and healed up, then snuck around the ASH DRAGON to complete that part of the quest.

In thanks everyone decided to give me a bombqueencore that we had got off a bomb :)

Well thats my story, I tend to do these noble things from time to time, but usally its when we have no other choice.

Well we wait for bout 15 mins and they all 3 come back. So we xp for bout 10 mins get 1k xp and our tank and warrior/nin DC again. So we wait for 30 mins and tank never returns so we have to disband party=(. (btw wasnt this last update supposed to make DCing less??)

Then went to work on my evasion skill as my thf went from 202-213 wOOt. then i died to a IT goblin lol.

So then me and bout 10 friends try the orc helm+1 quest in qulun dome. Well we all wiped twice we are thinking u need 18 ppl that r 75. cuz we wasnt even doing damage to diamond quad with 10 ppl and 9 of us were 70+. Plus it has like 10 links lol.

Today I got the ls going and we gathered 1 party for Prom Dem mission and one party for prom dem ENM. Got to the spire with just one death then both parties proceeded to kick ass.

And to my shock and amazement the Timorous Vision dropped!

My lovely ls let me keep it and I traded it in for my insanely awesome Enfeebling Earring (3 mil gil cost can eat my ass with a plastic knife and spork)

Well that's all for now

Hello, everyone. I'm posting about an offline project to bring a new player to FFXI and the Diabolos server.

Three days ago, my brother-in-law spotted me playing FFXI, so he sat down and watched me play. I was just farming/soloing in Konschtat Highlands, but I showed him a couple of things THF could do. I then ran through the Gustabergs to show him the fireworks from the Sunbreeze Festival and where I could do the Goldfish Scooping Event. I then went to Bastok to show him what I do when crafting (raised crafting close to 6 Smithing in the process making Bronze Scales with Synth support). He got excited and said he wanted to play.

I told him about the $30 price for the FFXI Collection (game plus the 2 expansions) and the $12.95 per month subscription after the first month. He said ok, but then my sister said no, they can't afford it o_O (come on sis :P). I offered to setup a mule character for him to play, but sis was still leary (I don't know why, she loved watching me play RPGs, she should love her husband doing the same). So, the decision was made, not for now. However, he did want to start one of the offline FFs.

For the rest of the weekend, that's all bro could talk to sis about: getting to start playing RPG video games.

Last night, I asked him a whole bunch of questions about what he likes in the books that he reads and the pencil-and-paper RPGs he has played in the past. He was telling me stuff and I picked on a hint of the Gaia theory. I asked him for his thoughts on Gaia theory, and he told me that Gaia theory played right into his favorite pencil-and-paper game, Werewolf. With that in mind, I recommended that he start with FF7 (which deals with Gaia theory via Shinra's use of Mako and Mako being the lifeblood of the planet). Then he said, "If this goes well, I will probably sign up for FFXI." YAYERZ!

He loaded up the game, I taught him the controls and basic knowledge, and I left to go watch NFL football with a friend and to give said friend a haircut (who gave me a PS Multitap for free WOOT!). When I came back, he was already six hours into the game, in Wall Market, and hadn't died yet.

I will be helping him out some more this evening and we'll see how it goes. I'm also going to show him the link to the video that Megatron found awhile back. I plan on having him play FF8 with ATB on before I recommend he play FFXI.

So that's my project for now. I've introduced someone to video games with the goal of bringing them into FFXI. Hope to post more later. Man, it would be sweet to bring up PLD with a real-life friend.

As it stands, I have a project of my own:

1) Bastok Fame Level 9
2) Mog Safe to 80
3) THF to LVL 25
4) 300k gil for new equipment via AH farm-and-sell

It's vacation week. Time to get busy.

Peace.

I didn't get a chance to coach my brother-in-law yesterday. He and sis had to go out to his family's ranch for most of the day. In the meantime, I soloed/farmed in Konschtat Highlands, dinging lvl 22 THF in the process.

I took my Smithing craft to 10 and passed the cap test by turning in a Xiphos to the Smithing Guild Master. I am now a Smithing Recruit. I will continue leveling this craft after THF gets to 25 via mining/exp in the Zeruhn Mines using my WHM and BLM jobs, both of which are at lvl 6 right now.

I taught one of my linkshell friends how to craft. I asked him about the craft he was starting, and he said Woodworking. Without further delay, I told him the following steps:

1) Go to the item screen and use a crystal.
2) That brings up a seperate screen where you can add the ingredients.
3) Confirm.

He broke his first three synths for the recipe I gave him to start woodworking. I asked if he had in fact joined the guild of choice for the recipe that I gave him to use. He had not, so I told him where to go to talk to the Woodworking Guild Master. He joined up, and the synths started working.

Later on when I told him that I was leveling up my Smithing craft, the same ls buddy said he wanted to keep going but couldn't for being short on gil. He mentioned he knew very little of making the gilz, so I then told him about the gil-making techniques I have been using. He was promptly out to farm bees (10k gil chip stacks as of last night) and saplings (15k gil Grain Seeds and 8k gil Veggie Seeds as of last night) in La Thiene Plateau. I'm sure there is better, but it was the best available knowledge

Today, it's back to farming. See you on Thunder Road.

1) Check. Woohoo!
2) Almost completed, have Noble Bed and was waiting for Conquest Update.
3) Not yet. This was going to be my grand finale Sunday, but i was held up by real life. However, if I get all my college homework done by this weekend.
4) This was and is a project seperate from the Noble Bed purchase (cost me 295k gil). I am currently 85k/300k.

Stuff was also held up by the fun I had doing crafting. Smithing went to 13, and Alchemy went to 2. I made the "business" decision to use the stacks of crystals I obtain through farming and gardening instead of purchasing them.

Helped one person get a Raise in Valkurm Dunes on Saturday.

Peace.

Last night I powerhoused through levels 28 and 29 with a group in Yhoater Jungle. Just after I hit 29, a few people had to leave. But we kept the party going, pulling a little slower until replacements arrived. We we're spamming Reverberation (thanks to the cooperation of our Ninja) and even got some wicked Magic Bursts (thanks to our capable BLM). It was a very productive evening. Hopfully tonight's will be as well. But it IS Yhoater, so I won't hold my breath for that.

Well, I didn't get my level last night, I'm still 30 War/Thf. But it was an interesting group.

First, I waited for like 90 minutes for an invite, which I kinda expected so I did some cleaning around the house while waiting. When I got to my group, they asked me to tank. Even with thf sub, I'm an okay tank, I just keep my VIT equipment handy and use Defender instead of Bersek. We had a PLer though, so it wasn't all bad. 30 minutes in, two people dinged and had to leave, including the person who had the PL. So we invited some others and went on our way. Our slow way.

The Ninja in our party, who came later, never used Utsemi(sp?) once. And didn't somehow, he got to be our main puller while I was still tank. But we got another PL and thing smoothed out. But xp was REALLY slow, Ninja didn't know who to pull at all.

I took over and we got a chain 3 and loads of xp in 20 minutes. The Ninja started pulling better after that, but not as fast as me. I couldn't just take over pulling though, the Ninja never listened to stuff in /p chat. We'd have to tell him over and over not to pull cause PL and WHM were low on mana, and he's pull anyways sometimes. If I tried to pull, he would pull something too.

Amazingly enough, only one person died in that party, me, and not from a botched pull. A gob killed me when in dropped a bomb that hit for 300!!! damage, ouch!

I also got my best Sturwind + Sneak Attack hit yet, for 280 damage. It isn't as high as some other peoples examples, but I'm using Neckchopper, which is quite a few levels old, until I hit 31 and break out my Volge +1(sp).

Also, I ALMOST made it back to Kazham on my own, without invis even. I got slowed down by a tree while trying to shout a train was coming through and they all caught up to me. There would have been a HUGE gob train and others might have died so I guess it's a good thing I didn't mae it. I'll bring some invis potions next time.

I've got to get at least one post in on burli's monster-thread lol....


A few hours ago I had just finished helping a guy beat the nm for pld af-1 when an amazing streak began for me. I zoned out to la theine and was running towards tele-holla when I decide to check widescan for kicks, and what do you know lumbering lamber sighted! I run over to look around and find nobody even close, so I slap it down to the ground.

As I got to holla however, instead of riding to jeuno I decided to give camping rampaging ram a shot, just for a little bit. So i run in to kon. highlands (yes, run..jumped off bird to kill some gobs chasing helpless ppl around in dunes) and begin the lil walk to the spawn area. I start using widescan on my way to get into a rythm, and lo and behold stray mary is up! It's at the far end of my scanning ability but i track it down anyways expecting to /clap at someone for the kill...but mary's just walking around all alone...so...I kill her! One mary's horn and a jug of her milk obtained, sweets. This is turning out to be really cool, two nm's in less than 20 minutes.

So...i finally run over to dem and set myself up to start spamming widescan..before I start I see a sam running around in different directions, I can only assume that he's probably looking too. I scan once...nada...twice..nada...thrice...omg rampaging ram!? I hit track instinctively and turn my char to run behind me and wow, it's just standing there a tad away from me! I run up and notice the sam close by and coming. I feel bad but come on, this is fate! So I chi blast, claim, kill...feel a lil bad...but pretty GOOD TOO :D It was 45 minutes of nm sheep/ram popping madness, and bar-none my luckiest 45 minutes in this game ever.

It didn't end QUITE as good although the night was alread sealed away as awesome. However I decided to go after the brown belt nm's for a lil bit and test how much further my luck could stretch. I camped deadly dodo for about 2 hours, got the pop, but no drop (d'oh!). I still zoned to jeuno with a smile on my face though.

My night in Vanadiel :D twill live in my mind forever lol

Well so far today, I went from WAR lvl 15 - 17 in a party in the Dunes, hoping to buy moth axe and full lizard set later.

Btw, has anyone noticed this thread has been going for over a year? Very impressive.

I talked to my friend Stouter over the weekend.

He brought me into the game back in March, but he had to go AFK for the summer. Later in the summer, it looked like he was not going to be back.

Well, it turns out that my chatting with him and telling him everything that has been going on has paid off. He's back into the game. Not only that, but Zaqariah is back into the game as well.

It pays to tell people that they're missed.

Welcome back, Stouter and Zaq! SUMMONEDHEROES RETURN! WOOT!

BTW, Gobbiebags 2, 3, & 4 completed and Sandy fame is up to level 5 since my last post.

Today I worked on my Rogue and Paladin in WoW, been playing that more since hitting 50 in CoH with my main and getting bored with my other high toons.

Then it's off to work in the NCNG Joint Operation Center to continue working Katrina relief issues and prepare for Ophelia.

Mainly posting to say hi to some old friends.

*cough* Burli *cough*

This was one of my favorite threads back in the day. Hope all is well and that everyone continues to enjoy Diabolos.

2) THF leveled to 25
3) Sandy Fame is now Rank 9 (repeated Bat Wings trade as well as completing tons of other Sandy quests)
4) Helped people do the Bastok Dragon and get their Kazham keys.
5) Died twice, and had fun doing it. :p
6) Made it on the boat in Selbina with two seconds to spare while a friend got left on the dock. >.<
7) Signed up for a static to take MNK to 37.
8) Applied for linkshell leadership with a friend. I will know if I get accepted today.
9) Agreed to develop web site for said linkshell. A friend that I play with also has Dreamweaver, and we'll be building a darn good lookin' site with it.

Since last post:

1) Gobbiebag 6 has been completed. I r de uber Greedalox! LOLERZ! (j/k) I spent 298k gil on the items in case anybody is looking to do this. You will make it back many times over in farming and other intrinsic benefits, so don't delay.
2) Smithing to 30. Novice rank achieved and GP system is unlocked (contracted with Smithing Guild).

Currently working on:

1) Gil for WAR HQ Equipment and Items. Last check was around 300k for level 24 apparel and level 27 HQ was around 700k. Looking to duplicate usage of this equipment in other job leveling where possible, hence I don't mind seeking the HQ and paying for it now. High priority.
2) Smithing. Checked prices for taking this to 40, and it looks to be close to 325k to pull this off (buying Steel Ingots to make Steel Sheets to 36 and using said Steel Sheets to make Steel Scales to 40). This doesn't include crafting for GP to obtain the Metal Ensorcellment Key Item, which I will be seeking post haste. Medium-to-high priority.
3) Goldsmithing. Haven't researched prices yet, but will be doing this very soon so as to not waste ore collection in the Mines areas. Medium priority.
4) Windurst Fame. Low priority atm.
5) WHM and BLM to 25. Low priority atm.

Haven't posted on this thread in ages, but since my last post, I've picked mnk back up and hit 75 this past Thursday. Took me 6 weeks to get from 66 to 75; I need a breather after that... Then yesterday sold a few things and bought my whm a nifty Noble's Tunic and proceeded to hit 75 with whm today. So 2 75's in less than a week... too much stuff I wanna merit!

Since last post:

1) Purchased Chain HQ Armor for WAR with the exception of Chain Hose +1 because it wasn't up for auction in Jeuno at the time. Also bought a Bomb Ring for +15 HP (I'm an HP hog, what can I say?).
2) WAR is now 27 and within 1.3k of 28.
3) THF is now 26.

Currently working on:

1) Helping every last person that needs whatever help I can provide. Pretty much a standing rule for myself, but I thought I would actually share it with the rest of you.

2) Gil for WAR HQ Equipment and Items. High priority.
3) Leveling WAR to 37. High priority.
4) Smithing. Medium-to-high priority.
5) Goldsmithing. Medium priority.
6) Windurst Fame. Low priority.
7) WHM and BLM to 25. Low priority.

I helped bring a new player into the game this week. It was fun to party with him and talk about the game and get him into a linkshell that will help him develop even further.

Sadly, this will be on of the last posts I make on the site. It was fun talking and responding to you all.

Well, I started up a new character, an Elvann Female named Swisschalet, and leveled her up to 8. She is a WHM now and will ultimately become a BRD/WHM, because I'm intrigued by the job.

Actually, I did all this quite a while ago, but what the crap guys!!! I leave for a few weeks and the "what did you do today" board goes all to hell?!? And to think I was upset that someone might get the 600th post instead of me. Sheesh guys, pull it together!
