snoll aka snow bomb, well it's a bomb, bombs aren't usually pleasant wherever they may be.

I was in an alliance with 15-16 70-75's. A snoll did it's TP move and 5 bodies dropped. I think I had 2-300 hp left. not pretty.

The Buffalo are cool. These things are huge btw. Easy prey to me at 75. I can solo these. A sleep bolt here and there, and it's too easy.

Here's something that's kind of lame but made me happy. I got my first "drop" from an NM last night. Me and a buddy were farming and messing around, mostly going on rampaging killing sprees on our way to Jeuno. We went through Pashow Marshlands and happened to kill Jolly Green and he dropped the Shaman's Belt. I know, not a rare drop and not really worth much by way of gil, but for someone who doesn't camp NM it was still kind of cool. Mary had spawned in the Kon Highlands but my buddy was too slow so someone else got her.

I helped my RL friend get his AF1 with the help of a couple of JP players. The battle was almost sad with the help we recieved. WAY easier than my AF1. Thanks goes out to Rivius and Fomarton (sp?) for the assistance.

I didn't "break the firewall". Bad wording lol. Just found a way to not have it get in my way.

As for how... I have no idea. All I know is a couple of computer science students that I hang out with spent an assload of time in the last few days figuring out everything they could about the university's internet setup, because they block just about everything you can think of, and it was pissing them off.

Anyway, they changed a whole lot of settings on a few people's computers and FFXI runs like a charm now. Of course, I didn't reactivate my Content ID yet, and I wont until I'm done the gauntlet of midterms that lies ahead of me, but come November, I'll be back in Diabolos!

I mostly did some re-arranging on my mules and I worked on BLM. The interesting part of my evening was pt experiences.

Party number 1: I get an invite to a pt, hi all around, check map, start running to join them. Apparently they attacked something because they ALL died before I could even come within sight of them. Shortest pt ever.

Party number 2: I went to the dunes and was welcomed into yet ANOTHER pt where the most inexperienced person was giving orders. I learned some things.

Did you know that if you have a WHM sub you can heal? Or that WAR should voke off the puller AND tank? You can also have a macro for EVERYTHING but it HAS to be a whole sentence long. A full pt should NEVER fight anything stronger than VT, because it's bettter to fight a T then wait until everyone is 100% mp and hp before continuing.

End rant. Sorry. At least they weren't open to suggestions of any kind, so that made the extremely slow exp well worth my while. lol I guess you could say what I really did last night was test my patience. There was definite potential in a couple of them at least.

I've been up to quite a bit, last friday we (My static party) decide to go and fight the Shadow Lord with a bunch of friends, now, the trip there is pretty horrendous, horrible place, annoying tunnels to weave around while avoiding aggro from anything and everything. Now we think, that's the hard part over right? I guess so, but our BLM forgot to start the quest properly, so we're left with no BLM, just a THF,PLD,NIN,WHM,WHM(Second WHM was level 72).

We do fine with the initial melee section, then he becomes immune to pyhsical attacks, and oh dear, no Black mage... So it's me spamming my elemental Ninjustu wheel >.< We manage to hang on for awhile, he gets to a slither of his HP, and we all die. You imagine what we thought of our black mage after that.

Saturday was my day off, needed a break after that embarrassing defeat.

Sunday however! Me and My RDM Friend Toyomoyo decide to solo my AF3, now this was a fun fight, RDM+NIN = {Impossible to Gauge}. We killed the Sahagin, I went to Kuftal and found out that Spiders there aggro, and link, and raptors.. and cactuars, yes it hurt, but I got Mijin Gakure in at the last second. Smiley: tongue Went back later, got my Large Trick Box ad Traded it in for My Ninja Chainmal! ^^

Then, static party started around 6pm CST, we levelled in Cape Terrigan, there was some training hell, too much of it, thankfully the training parties gave up and left, we had the camp to ourself for a while, then a very, very idiotic party pulled out all their cards. First they arrive by zoning a Sand Cockatrice and a robber crab, then they zone some more crabs and a pug later, then they zone an elemental and shortly after a crab.. We weren't haveing much joy at this point. Thankfully, they left soon enough.. I think.

Overall, I get around 10-11k exp, leaving me at a nice 3.5k tnl (57), still, levelling has been rare lately, but finally my static is back on its feet, I hope to get 60 relatively soon.

Ok, I'll stop rambling.. now. Smiley: rolleyes

I had a pretty good weekend. I got to 12 in BLM, 23 (almost 24) in RDM and 44 in PLD. My static decided to start at 44 instead of 45 so the WHM and I are just waiting for the others to catch up. The rest of the weekend consisted of helping someone get their skull for subjob and LOTS of farming. I also realized my fame in some parts of the game isn't too hot so I did some quests and I'm going to be doing quests like crazy for a while.

RL time was even better than my time spent playing, which is great!

Well it's been almost a week and a half since I last posted on this thread, so I've been up to a bit. Got all 6 of the lv20 avatars done without a loss, so that was pretty fun. I then got black mage up to lv20 and decided it was time to get back to monk. First night lfp with monk, I got a party and got maybe 2.5k on rumbles before disbanding. Next three nights I sat in Jeuno with seek up and didn't get any invites. Ended up goofing around in Qufim for the most part. On that third night I tried putting together a party with 4 JPN and 1 NA that were all seeking in Jeuno. Not the best party possible, but with what was available it would have been good (nin, mnk, thf, rdm, blm, whm). Couldn't get any of the JPN to join so I was kinda mad for them not wanting to party with a rank 5 NA (they were all rank 9 or 10), yet they were all still seeking about an hour later. Whatever... On the fourth night I decided to at least get some xp and fought some workers while waiting for a party, and alas I get an invite 45 min after arriving. I then proceeded to gain my first level on monk in a month and a half or so (47). That was last night and then today got a party before even reaching the nest, and got 2k more xp before having to go to work. And so begins the push to 50, hopefully I can get there by the weekend.

Correction: Your friend bought you a Haubergeon. I'm currently working on my Haubergeon.

Today I got sent to GM jail because of blacklight, and I leveled my thf up once to 22(need to get it to 30 before I lvl drk again) and that's about it. PS: Blacklight needs to die.

Sooo, hmm.

Friday night I returned to Castle Zvahl to get my own back on the Shadow Lord. The trip there was pretty easy this time, no level 68 NM to slap me around and kill half the alliance, no horrific trains of pure doom that lead to mass death.

We get to the Throne Room, ooh, it's Darksday Smiley: yikes

So, we decide not to wait, and to fight the Shadowlord on his strongest day. Now, our PLD is missing, so we replace him with a WAR friend for Melee DD, the set up is NIN, RDM, WAR, WHM, BLM, THF.

I tank him while we pummel his health down, quite quickly really, the thief SATA's onto the Warrior and for the second I lose hate, he criticalls the warrior for 500+, he bites the dust. Luckily we were pretty far in, so we defeat his first form shortly.

Second form is going ok, BLM uses manafont and we Distortion him twice while I nuke Ninjutsu in between. I see our Red mage running off and figure he's going to convert.. You can't convert in this battle when the Shadow Lord spams AoE every second, it just doesn't work Smiley: oyvey

Before I can shout "DON'T CONVERT!", He falls to the ground, in that incredibly funny way that Elvaan's do.

Finally, we finish off the Shadow Lord.. the dead are raised, and we turn our alliance back around to fight Dark Spark, which I happened to need Smiley: grin

We somehow end up with an 18 person alliance.. This bomb isn't going to last long. In fact he dies in 30 seconds, the last half of his life seems to dissapear in the blink of an eye with Guillotine/ Sidewinder and all the damage on the side. I go back to Jeuno and get my gloves, that's it, completed AF set! Smiley: yippee

Last night I levelled NIN, and got to level 58, my comfy new Ninja Pajamas awaited. I also popped into Qufim earlier than that and had the pleasure of finally meeting Autumnangel ^^

All in all, an eventful weekend and I really had fun.

I had a pretty interesting weekend. I leveled RDM to 26 Friday night. Saturday I got a whole lot of nothing accomplished.

Saturday I mostly just did quests to pass my time. Later I was in a pt to play PLD for teh second time in a month only to be there for two and a half hours died four times and walked away with LESS exp than I started with. There was no reason for it either, we had a REALLY good party makeup, just one of those days.

Yesterday I decided to start leveling SAM, got it to 7, then helped 2 LS mates kill the tree and bomb for SAM flag quest. Me, a 52 RDM and a 43 DRK. We beat the tree so badly it was sad. I haven't figured out why 40-something PLD think they can't tank it.

After that I finished SMN quest so I now have all the jobs, then went to Alteppa desert to pt. Almost left because it took us FOREVER to get started, but it ended up being one of the best pt EVER. The RDM (Eiralee, you ROCK) in our pt was the best I'd ever had the pleasure of having in my pt and the DRK (Phyr), DRG (Reidan), SMN (Hikaze), and BLM (Cheojoo)knew their jobs VERY well. We were chaining beetles like crazy. Like I said in the pt last night, F Crawler's Nest. lol Got 45 and most of the way to 46.

When we were breaking up we had a "You're the best, no YOU'RE the best" session. lol If you get the chance to pt with ANY of these guys, do it. Aside from exp we had fun just chatting in pt. Real quality players.

Edit: names

Started buying my gear in prepartion for level 50 last night with the Tactician Magician's Espadon. Got it for WAY less than it was selling for just two weeks ago. After that I went to Alteppa desert and got to 46 in PLD. I'm not a leveling beast but after waiting over a month for people to level to catch up for no reason, I'm tired of not being 50. lol

Was actually about a week ago that I got lv50 finally ^^. Then went on to take whm to lv25 (and happened to walk across Burli in Qufim). I was going to play around with my other mages for a while, but I wanted to get back to monk so I sold all of my equipment for my mages (something like 550k) in an effort to draw even closer to the 1.7 mil for cross-counters. I'm within about 125k of that mark, so I'll be getting them soon! In the meantime I've been doing a bunch of map quests and as soon as I get my CC's I'll do mission 5-1 and get my AF2 done.

Also had some rather disheartening news today. Maybe last week Thursday (14th), Blacklight appeared in my linkshell. I'm sure all of you regular readers/posters know about him, and at the time of his joining I didn't know all the information about him. I thought I'd give him a chance, but I'd keep a close eye on him and watch the backs of my LS. He was on that night and I think Saturday night (16th), but I haven't seen him on since then. And now today one of my members tells me that the Mako LS is telling its members to stay away from my LS (HarvestMoon) because he happened to come onto my LS a couple times. WTF? I can't say that he is even on my LS because I never see him and I'm gonna get a bad rap because someone gave him a pearl to my LS? That's just total BS and unfair to me and to the rest of my LS to be put in the same corner and treated like we all did everything Blacklight did or is accused of doing. I don't know...I just heard about this like an hour ago so I'm still a little steamed about it, so I'm sure I'll cool down. Sorry for the venting lol

Sorry to hear your LS is getting a bad rep based on something like that.

I didn't play all weekend, was too busy in RL. I did go out to the dunes to level BLM and got a /tell from a close friend asking me to come and tank some exorays to help get the mold. I found a replacement and bloodported at 6 tnl. lol We had a high level THF helping us (thanks Thang). While he was there we got 1 mold out of about 100+ Exorays, after he left we got 2 in 3. LOL This game kills me. Actually, it did kill me, we all got whiped out by a link so we decided to call it a night, me being the only one who didn't get a mold. It was my call though, I still have 4 levels to worry about it.

What name did they say?? NOONE from MAKO is telling anyone to stay away from any LS that has BLacklight in it. that person may have misunderstood what someone told them. They may have told them to stay away from Blacklight

edit:

this weekend I killed Roc(got the drop), got a fransisca, and got my af3.

Ok.

I levelled NIN for a day last week, got about 15k exp, ok, not a whole day a few hours, but I got from 58, to 8k into 59, 60 Is so close, but yet so far!

To try and stop myself from dying from the insanity that is brought by higher levelling and being dissapointed by my static party, I've been levelling monk, I'm having a great time, 10 levels in the last few days, it's at 37 and I've decided to take it as far as possible, which is why my new monk profile has found a home in my signature.

Hopefully, I will be levelling NIN tonight, getting as close to 60 as I possibly can, these last 10 levels have been hell. Smiley: banghead

If not, I'm levelling monk again! But I really want 60 Smiley: cry

I met up with Autumnangel the other day, went into qufim and watched her beat the poop out of stuff, can't wait to get monk that high, thanks for humouring me Autumn! Smiley: grin

EDIT: Because "levellig" is not a word, unfortunately.

Went to Alteppa last night and got to 47. WOOT

Thanks a lot for the offer Tialah, I really appreciate. I feel fortunate to have met you, Hikaze, and the rest. I haven't leveled PLD without Hikaze since that first party in Alteppa.

Nice to hear you're enjoying MNK Burli, I personally love the job. I haven't touched it much since I got PLD because I don't want to level without Ochiude's Kote and haven't fealt like farming for it. lol

Well, I finally did it, after the 10 most hellish levels ever, I got Smiley: yippee level 60! Smiley: grin

I've been having fun with my New WS, and Attack Bonus, ahh, what a great feeling it is Smiley: tongue

I'm back to levelling monk tomorrow, hope to get 40, and at the moment I'm camping a certain mob with a friend, trying to get him some Kote for his SAM.

Well, its Armourdon again; First of October I quit, but this week I came back, as a Beastmaster.

It only took 2 days for my Linkshell to get my Red Mage out of retirement. So I have been working really hard on re-equipting him. I need 90,000 Experience points to catch up to my static party :( Doku, I wanted you to know my Red Mage is back^^ so if you guys need it this weekend, Let me know.

Hope everyone else is doing well! I also took up Goldsmithing.

See you all again.

CONGRATULATIONS Burli!

Thanks for offer. Maybe if I stopped turning down invites all the time I could level. lol

I got a whole lot of nothing acomplished this weekend. I decided to go after a few more tablets for Cralwer's Nest map quest, An Explorer's Footsteps. Then I went to Davoi as a 26 RDM to try and find my Power Sandals and maybe get help obtaining a Gold Orcmask for the Jeuno quest to get the Engineer's Gloves.

I will say this, sneaking around as a low level RDM is FUN. Having to ALWAYS have an escape plan if your spells wear off is exciting. lol

I was seeking party with my thf and well this was saturday, so I took alchemy from 38 to 51.4. Sunday I just leveled mnk from 12 to 18. Parties are Flood or Famine, never seems to be steady.

Well unfortunately the Cross-counters didn't cost 1.7 million like I had hoped they would. I got up the money for it and couldn't even get it for 1.9 mil despite the last sale at 1.7. But then the next day another pair was up and managed to get them for 1.9, so at least I have them now :). Since then my gardens finished and was able to buy my pair of Sniper's Rings, which sadly are up to 600k a pop... Did mission 5-1, and came up 1 second short of the record, and I was the only monk in the party ;). I ended up doing 5-1 a second time and also had another monk so I figured we'd crush the record. But after entering the arena, the whm kept insisting he needed to cast Reraise and I kept saying it wasn't necessary. Well we sat around a good 15 seconds doing nothing and ended up losing to the record by 7 seconds. Oh well, not like your names are posted up there if you beat it. I then was able to do AF2 with a pld57 and rdm69. The battle took almost 10 minutes for 2 orc NM's, and man, I've never seen a 100 Fists like that one! Seemed about twice as fast as a PC's mnk 2hr. Then that comes up to yesterday when I jumped into a party doing Genkai 2. Was pretty easy but somehow I managed to get hate from the tiger even though I was the lowest level in the alliance (52). Pretty sad but I was down to under 200 HP by the time anybody even cured me. About 6 of the 18 needed to do Dark Spark (including myself), but we ended up not doing it which was kind of disappointing since we were already up there. Still need to do that before I get to 54 so if anyone's interested, send me a tell ;).

To Doku and the rest of Mako:
I apologize if I upset any of you by my last post about a member of my LS telling me that Mako wanted it's members to stay away from my LS. It appears that I have been misinformed and I don't want to stir any trouble as I have partied with many people from Mako and they're good people. On a Blacklight update, he showed up a day or two after my last post and was going to do Genkai 2 with an alliance including one of my members (I was 50 so couldn't do it yet). I took my member to the Vahzl GC where we were to meet with BL and the rest of his alliance. When we got there BL had vanished and the leader of the alliance wasn't responding to our tells. So needless to say he wasted our time going there, but luckily that member was in the alliance when I went to do it yesterday. If Blacklight shows up in HarvestMoon and I'm on, he's gone from my LS.

Grats on the new gear Autumn. :)

I went out to the Sea Serpent Grotto entrance to get some screen shots of the waterfalls, then went back to Khazam to join a RL friend in a party and level RDM. Got it to 28 last night. Unfortunately I have to go back to the dunes to level my sub for it. I was planning on taking BLM to at least 17 for warp but the dunes.....

Word to the wise, the second jungle was the WORST I've ever seen it last night. There was gob train after gob train with no warnings shouted. It was down right pathetic. There were even higher level people there to take some of them out and they just couldn't keep up. My advice? LEVEL SOMEWHERE ELSE!!! ;)

Good job Trog! In the morning I gained 10,000 exp. At night I partied for like 4 hrs, a lot of drama people going afk without saying anything in the middle of battle and saying it's only xp who cares if you die. Ose spawned twice. First time other pt wouldn't alliance with us they pull Ose by mistake, call for help, I help, then they escape and my pt dies. Noble isn't it? 2nd time we alliance with a pt, and I tell them to invite the 3rd pt because we were loosing. They don't invite them until it's 1/4 life and then they decline, at this time both tanks are dead and then I die because I had the most hate after that. By the way none of these parties had Raise II, I died 4 times at night and lost more exp then I gained after partying for 4 hrs. Good morning, terrible night -.-. Greed >.>

{Hmmm}

Tuesday I went and levelled NIN a bit, getting close to 61, which means I'll have to do this acursed cap quest Smiley: bah.

Yesterday I levelled monk again, had some great parties and got 2.5 levels, 41-43.5. Looking forward to getting counterstance, even though it's apparently useless Smiley: glare Did, 356 damage with Chi Blast at level 42, that was fun ^^

Yup, I love Monk.

Tonight it's more NIN levelling, 61= Spikey looking Katana's and Amemit Mantle pour moi~
Oh, and I need to get my monk AF1 done still Smiley: frown

As always, thanks for posting everyone Smiley: grin

God damn economics... ^^ hehe... Been hunting my ass off to no avail thanks to no lvled theif. Thats on my to-do list today I guess.

Accoplishements over all-
Drank a fifth of grey goose

I finally decided to party again as a PLD. Got about 3.4k exp and one death in almost three hours of fighting. Good people, good setup, in a place I've gotten chain fives before. I'm not all about levels but when I party I like to do it efficiently. It's more frustrating to be a in a party with a great setup and do poorly than in a gimped party and do ok.

Edit: Forgot to mention that I held Benediction hate without using Invincible. Always a good feeling when that happens. :)

Well haven't leveled in about a week now, so still at 52. I did however get Dark Spark and my Temple Gloves, so can't wait to try those out. And man Burli, nice Chi Blast!

Anyway the main topic of this post is even more proof of why I love monk. Was soloing in the nest when I got a tell for mission 5-1 again. I figure why not so I come along. Now the first two times the record was 2:52 and my times were 2:53 and 2:59. We had a whm, drg, rdm, pld, and 2 mnks, so I figure we'd kill the record for sure this time. We just about get to Fei'Yin and the whm has to go for whatever reason. I figure no prob and we keep going. We get to the BC and the drg realizes he doesn't have a lv50 lance, so now we're wondering if we should even try. We figure might as well try since we came all the way here, but reduced to 2 mnks, rdm, pld, and a drg's wyvern. Entered the BC and alas new record, 2:31. Well so much for setting any records. Anyway I run up to the main NM unleash 100 fists with the other mnk behind. When it wore, focus, berserk, raging fists for 834 o.O and it dropped shortly after.

Time shows up on the screen:
2 minutes, 13 seconds

Smiley: yikes

Congratulations on setting a new record!

I partied in Quicksand Caves and got 48 last night, less than 3k to 49 too.

More importantly, I did meet a nice female Elv BRD last night. Very nice person and it's always cool to have an addition to my friend's list. :) Her party had a sub-par PLD tank and they kept zoning, which caused us to zone, and she was very apologetic. Someone please tell me why a lvl 50 PLD would wear a complete Mythril set in an exp party? They were a lvl 50 party, we were 47-48 fighting the same mobs, yet the only time we had to flee was when THEY zoned mobs. Hmmmm

Funny side note: I had sent their WHM a tell when forming my party in Jeuno but she was AFK so I found another, which had been discussed in tells when she finally responded. Said hi when I saw her and she was like "yeah, you found a different WHM and I got stuck with this suck pt". That was kind of funny, we all got a laugh out of that.
