Ok, don't flame me, if the idea of this post doesn't interest you, just leave it be and I'll watch it die Smiley: cry

I want to try and create a thread that will let us get to know each other, so, I have created the "What did you do today?" thread. Now, you can come here as often as you like and post your recent accomplishments, or you can find me in game and slap me with a trout Smiley: tongue

So, I'll start.

Recent Accomplishments-
Well after camping the Valkurm emporer for god knows how long, I managed to farm the money up and bought an emporer hairpin, plus a load of other crazy equipment. Also, my static has finally started up again, and I have gained two levels in two night, with the purchase of a life belt.

And did I mention not enough people play Ballista?! PLAY BALLISTA MORE!

Ok, I'm done for now, have fun people. Smiley: grin

Went from level 11 to 15 in the Maze with a bunch of mages.
1 Galkan Thf/Rng + 5 Tarus Mages + Maze Makers = Great party.

I do Suggest that if you go there with melee make sure they have ranged Weapons or you may die :(

Hmmm, in two hours of fishing I got around .5 skill ups from fishing Gold Carp in Windy Woods. I changed jobs around 5 times, tring to figure out if I wanted to level or not. All in all a gaint waste of a day. But then again, on those days I seem to waste. I have the most fun, chating with the linkshell. Oh yeah, I'm 20k from 4 Million Gil...Please stop raising the price of the E-Bow.

My Goals for tonight will be, Help a friend get her Red mage AF1 in davoi. Fish, and split profits with between crafting and Savings. And that looks about like it.

Well, I had fun tonight, Managed to get 1.5 levels in a few short hours, so I'm halfway to 50 now. 49 was fun, got a great new WS, and some new leg armor, which now makes me looks like a complete idiot due to miss-matching colours Smiley: jester

Our whole party was killed however by a train of Vault weapons, which someone thought funny to train to the Garliage Citadel entrance. That was annoying.

Anyway, thursday we meet up again, get level 50 capped, this weekend we hunt genkei drops Smiley: grin

Thanks for all your input!

Oh forgot to mention I bumped into our very own Greenfource for the first time while I was levelling, gave him a /wave but no response, probably mistook me for some idiot, in my current atire. Smiley: cry

Early this morning I logged on to briefly check my delivery box before work and while standing AFK in ru'lude this huge alliance of japanese players comes and stands on my head...then Moll, the leader, sends me a tell "<break> <limit> 2?"...
so he sends me an invite and low and behold, i am the final member in a 18 member alliance going to do Genkai 2! This could not have worked out better, I was dreading putting this together myself!! NOw i have a free ride! I followed this huge Japanese alliance not understanding a word...but you know what!? I got the quest done and now i can get to lvl 60...Just goes to show you that sometimes you just need to be patient and not stress out about stuff!!! THANKS MOLL!!!!

Got my light staff and have been leveling my staff skills. (from 50-80)
Got my fishing skills to level 20 last night. (from 18-20)
Did the Rank-5-1 mission last night.

Still to come: leveling my blm up to at least 14, but I may take it to 17 for the warp factor.
leveling my whm - waiting for my blm
leveling my bard - waiting for my whm

Continue to cook, fish and farm to raise gill.

Today I went stood in the dunes losing me eyesight from the blinding brightness of the area for sevral hours defending Selbina from lower level killin goblins like I do nearly everyday. I planted a tree in hopes it will make me a lil much needed cash, I changed my job about a zillion times trying to figure out if I should level, and then I went fishing and went from 32 to 33. My such an exciting day. I just may have to do it all again tonight.

Actually found an experienced party in the Dunes and got my thief to 20 in the matter of a couple hours. Just kept going and realized I'm almost to 21 already :). Then went to Ordelle's in preparation to get my final piece of RSE for tonight and decided to see if I could get Stroper Chyme for a change. Of course I didn't get it since it popped purple every time except once. And in that one time it was on the exact opposite side of the room so I couldn't get in range of Chi Blast before someone else got it :(. Did get a Flame Degen off a Napalm so it wasn't an entire waste. Someone also trained 3 tier 4 gobs into the room of which I killed 2 and both dropped chest keys! Why couldn't it have been that easy to get the other 4 keys I've gotten for RSE? I was solo so those went to waste, cursed rare/EX! As for tonight, I'll get my last magical pattern then head off to Qufim to continue leveling thief /sigh

Was about to go farm when I got an invite to go party in the depths of Yhoator Jungle. The party fell apart before I got there but a little later the same guy asked if I wanted to go get the level cap items. Being lv45 I thought, well I've got lots of time to get it done, but gotta do it sooner or later. We took an alliance of 7 (3 mid-40s, 2 50s, and 2 mid-50s) and got 5 bomb drops in no time then headed off to the nest and got 3 molds for those who needed it yet (myself included). Took a little over 2 hours for the molds and I was the only one that had TH, so I was delighted we got that many. By then it was about 5:30 am CDT so everyone went to bed :(. We'll be going to Eldieme tonight so hopefully I can get this all done well before even reaching lv50 :).

Well, I've had a busy few days, The saturday after getting 50, me and my static headed to Garliage to get Bomb Coal, The bomb was dropping two at a time quite regularily, so we invited in a couple of other people to give them the leftovers. We then headed to Eldieme for the Liches. First we tried going via Battalia, no luck, so we took the Xarcabard, Beaucedine Glacier - Battalia Downs Route. We found a camp and pulled, liches, and more liches, finally a paper drops, our WHM gets it. Now, we didn't expect to see anymore that night, but after around 7 hours, we managed to find 5 papers, one for every static member (one already had a job past 55). Smiley: yippee

The next day, we all grouped together to fight the NM on the ship to selbina for my Ninja Hakama (level 52 leg armor). Resonator, our fast as lightning claimer RDM , was already on the deck with it dia'ed, before I could even open the door. Smiley: eek The Fight was easy and I had some very nice shorts to look forward to wearing.

Recently I have gained level 52, half way to 53. Was left at 600tnl when trying to get 52 for my hakama so ended up soloing to 52 in Western Altepa Desert. Smiley: glare

All in all, a great weekend, and good times since then Smiley: grin

Thanks for all your input!

Well didn't get that party to go to Eldieme until a couple nights ago, and we were getting paper drops like crazy! All 6 people who needed it got it in about 2 hours Smiley: wink2

Yesterday I was on pretty much all day and got my thief from 28 to 32, so still chugging along with that. Already kinda sick of trying to get people to set up SATA, and one person even starting cursing me after asking her about 10 times to stand between me and the mob... I'm loving the damage from it, but still can't wait to be done with thf, only 5 more levels to go. Then I get to go back to my war22 and get that to 37... Leveling subs suck, but at least after that I'll have monk's 3 best subs at 37 (my sam is already 37 even though war and thf make better subs). Nice to be versatile Smiley: waycool

Not going to be on much tonight, but will hopefully get 33 and Viper Bite, so that's something to look forward to; my SATA's were doing over 300 to mandies with berserk and kabobs, so we'll see how high I can go Smiley: king

Sounds like fun Autumn, setting up some people for SATA seems to be like performing heart surgery, they just don't get it. Smiley: oyvey

As for me, I'm being slack, I haven't been posting what I have done "today", but days after.. Shame on me!

Anyway, last saturday I went to hunt the coffer key for my level 54 Ninja Kyahan, In Sea Serpent Grotto. I went as me 53NIN with Vadne and Toyomoyo (53 WHM, 59RDM). Now, we got to our spot and slayed Sahagins for what felt like ages without a drop, maybe 3-4 hours, can't remember >.<. Luckily, a level 75 Monk (Yassen, great guy and japanese player) was farming in the area, camping an NM, so he killed Sahagins for us. Finally, Lavi, a friend of ours, comes as his 62 THF, and we venture deeper in.

Now, getting to see the SC of Asuran Fists --> SATA+ Dancing Edge, made me want to fight stuff for longer, before the key dropped. But in about, 30-40 minutes of clearing the zone, the key drops, and I'm a happy bunny.

So, me and Lavi head back to Norg, change our subs to WHM for sneak, and return to the coffer spawn points. Now, we wait a bit, and set out.. and there it is, the coffer! No bearing in mind, there was no one around to compete, I still rush to open it, receiving my Ninja Kyahan.

I get swarmed on by four sahagins, a crab and a blubber eyes as opening the chest removes my sneak, and I go down too quickly to even use Mijin Gakure. De-levelling to 52 Smiley: cry

Lavi says he will raise me, and starts to clear the area, two Sahagins link on him, and he's down to 7 HP, before he sleeps the shagin with sleep bolts, and Divine Seal- Cure III's himself, before continuing to pummel the sahagin to sleep. After finally finishing, he raises me. I Mijin Gakure back to Norg, before looking at my status and realising I re-levelled at the raise Smiley: grin I was very Happy.

Recently, I static partied on thursday, got 11.5k exp in 3 hours, so I'm 1.5k tnl, 54, and I can wear my Kyahan! Smiley: yippee

Ok, i'm done, cheers! Smiley: boozing

What a turn of events... Got lv33 for my thf and Viper Bite on Friday to bring my 2-day total to 5 levels, but it's been pretty horrendous since. I've waited in Jeuno, Sauromugue and Garlaige for a party and haven't had one since! What gives?? In the jungles I don't think I had to wait more than 3 minutes to get a pt and now I've been party-less for 4 days. So I've been bored out of my mind standing around watching other people fight. And all I want is to get to lv37 so I can be done with thief! But it's been so frustrating I just want to skip it and head back to Qufim to continue my war on my quest to get them both to lv37 (yet it was from a lack of pts that made me quit war at lv22...). Too bad soloing the last 4 lvs would take like a month or I would do that instead of waiting Smiley: lol

This maintenance isn't helping either. I had most of Monday and Tuesday to play but can't because of the stupid maintenance. So I've been subjected to playing at like 4:00 am when no English players are around (and not enough Japanese ones in the low-mid 30's to try to start a party with).

Aye, watching my gardens grow is more exciting than this...

Well after that god-awful near 8 hour downtime, I got on and finished off the last three levels for my thief sub. And in the last 22 lvs of parties with thief, I pulled all but one party and had a total of 1 add and no links. **** I'm good.
Smiley: king

Now it's back to war to get that to 37 (only 15 more levels) and rather than going back to my swords, I decided to go for Great Axe. So far today I bought a Neckchopper (40k ><) and got my skill up from 0 to 40. Later tonight I'll try to get it to around 60 in the dunes and then head off to Qufim. I just hope I don't forget how to play monk by the time I get back to it.

A good monk will never forget their roots, it's such a fun class to play, It was the first job I levelled, and I recently went back to it, after the stress of ninja, it's a great release, and well equipped and well played monks come into their own.

You know you'll slip straight back into monk, like a foot into a slipper Smiley: wink

As for me, Got 14k exp levelling last night, so I got level 54, and I'm 2.5k to 55 Smiley: grin

Tonight I'm getting 55, then doing Genkai 2 Smiley: yippee

In the last couple days, started out again with war and got to 25 painstakingly. For the most part, most of my parties in Qufim were full of noobs, but luckily I didn't die at all (had a couple die on me but when you are waiting for Provoke to come back and can't draw agro back doing anything else, what can you do?) Went to Kazham to look for a party then; surprisingly there were only 2 parties in Yuhtunga. Waited a half hour and couldn't find anything and not enough people to start a new party, so I headed back to Jeuno to find something to do. I haven't farmed in a long time so I decided to check on some of my favorite preys and their prices. Hmm, coeurl whiskers going for 12k/stack? And none for sale? And the whole list sold today? (for those who don't know economics, high demand and low supply = rising prices) First tried out farming the coeurls in Sauromugue and also tried out the Tabar Beaks too. Even though I killed them pretty easily, there was still a lot of downtime resting. Searched Meriphataud and only one person was there, so I decided to hit up my old farming spot. No downtime, just sat there killing coeurls and using Chakra to heal when needed. Spent nearly 4 hours farming and picked up 5 stacks of whiskers and 22 hides. Got back to Jeuno and found prices have gone up to 15k/stack, so I'm hoping to roll in a good 125k from my farming which would be quite nice (still a LONG ways to go to get Cross-Counters, but it'll be worth it). Put my whiskers on auction and am leaving my bazaar up all day in the Tanner's Guild to try to dump off my hides. It's worked every time so hopefully my bazaar will be clear when I come on tonight.

Hasta la vista!

I'm sitting here at work, bored out of my mind. I switched departments at my job. I went from slow paced, with no work to slow paced with tons of work. I saw the person next to me almost fall out of his chair as he almost fell asleep.

I would be happier if I knew I had CoP today. I guess I'll do something else, level some job, fight fenrir or something. ciao.

Again couldn't find a party right away in Yuhtunga so I helped out a couple LS mates climb the tower for rank 4. They were both 36whm so that made things so much easier. Came up to Mimas (wasn't there when I got rank 4) and I thought he dropped keys so went and attacked him. Didn't see the drops right away as we were agroed by two more giants and then a thunder elemental. The giants went down fast but the elem with their high defense took a little longer. After that went back to see what was in the treasure list and I see a huge moth axe in there. I ask if I could have it (only to sell of course as I will only take war to 37 and the axe is lv39) and they let me since I'm helping them. Head into the next room and clear out the 5 or 6 giants in there, and just as we were finishing off the last, Porphyrion pops. Rush over there and slaughter his guts, get keys and finish off the quest. Get back to Jeuno and see the axe sells for 40-45k. So that made it worth the trip. Been back to leveling war now the last couple days and I'm now half way to 29 and will hopefully hit 30 tonight. I'd at least want 29 so I can see how the new Eisen set looks; not sure if I've seen it yet. But it'll hold me at least to 37 so I won't have to worry about more armor.

Ok.. let me think, right.

On the night of my last post, my static levelled in Crawlers Nest off Crawler Hunters and Knight Crawlers, it was pretty crazy due to a lot of links, but I hauled in 4k to level to 55 and get a good buffer before we headed to Xarcabard via teleport for Genkai 2.

After waiting for some members to get their crystals, we ran to the first spot with our 16 odd player alliance, killed the coeurl, and some people didn't click the ???, so we would have to kill it again for them Smiley: laugh Deciding to fight the Couerl last, because It was a toughie with all that evasion. We head to the spot with the tiger, it is killed and everyone gets their Item. Then we head to the dog point, kill it along with it's horrifically weak defense, and get the third item. Last but not least we kill off the coeurl for the other members, and my Genkai 2 is complete Smiley: yippee

On thursday, my static met up again, and sue to great exp in Boyohda, I manage to haul in 10k exp in a few hours, even though we had A LOT of bad luck with links, death, people forgetting right sub jobs before that Smiley: cry Now i'm 3.5k tnl (56) and I will be getting that in tomorrow's static.

During that party I managed to get a Boyohda Coffer key, went back next day with WHM sub for sneak and found the coffer within 10 minutes, obtaining my Ninja Hatsuburi. Smiley: grin

I have been getting back into the swing of the game. My Static Party, became frustrated with AF's, Experience Points, Finance, and Schedules. We have decided "God's Speed to 60!!!" where we can regroup and go from there. Anyways, I am 10.5k TNL(57). I assume your Static Party is full Burli, but I thought I might ask anyways, if you ever have to pickup a Red Mage, I am planning on being on tonight. LOL Good Luck, and its nice to see what other people are doing throught their day.

My static is completely full, hopefully for some time, sorry Armourdon Smiley: frown, and the RDM in the static is a good friend of mine so hopefully he's not going anywhere. Thanks for the offer however! Doubtful it would be a good idea to join our static anyway, people seem to level faster than us, well, maybe that's because our BLM is away for a week, but I hate being left behind other levellers..

As for what I've been doing. Cooking! Smiley: yippee

I spent the last while fretting about whether I would enjoy crafts, fishing always bored me. I start cooking as my first synthing craft, and I find myself addicted. level 13 after a couple of days work, in my spare time, and it gets better and better.

So to any of you who think that crafting might be boring, or be a waste of money, please try it out, I wish I had done sooner.

Well I must say the Eisen set looks pretty slick, although as with any other armor, there's less to it when a mithra is wearing it. And oh, the examination, what a pain...

Since my last post I have gotten to 35 with war and so I need 2 more lvs then I'll be done with all my subs barring any level cap increases. After this I'll hit up some of my mages to take a break from melee and probably take up some cooking as well. I've got tons of time as I'll probably wait for my gardens to make enough money for Cross-Counters before I pick my monk back up. I'll at least want them before I hit 50, so there's 3 lvs to spare. My smn is lv15 so I'm looking forward to the lv20 avatar fights; it'll be fun! I also sold my Fuma Kyahan for 290k to help out my financial struggles; I figured that the STR+3 from my RSE gaiters was better than the Haste+3% on the Kyahan.

So, seeing as my static is on a break until sunday, we've been coffer hunting with friends all week, Davoi, Eldieme, Garlaige.. None of them for me, but I must help of course Smiley: wink2

I managed to level Warrior from 31-36 in one day, started with /MNK sub, using a Great Axe, and I had a lot of trouble keeping hate in a party with a DRG, RNG, DRK and BLM. We still got some fast levels with that method, but then I switched to WAR/NIN, dual wielding Warriors Axes, and I was hitting a lot harder, and tanking more efficiently.. We replaced the DRG with a PLD, and I got to shine as a damage dealer and relax, Berserk+ Warcry, is a lot of fun with dual wield axes, outdamaging the well equipped Samurai's hits, with a single of mine, then adding another on top (not to mention Double Attack kicking in often). So, great exp, and level 31-36 in one day. Smiley: grin

Oh, and living in England, getting an NA copy of the expansion has been hell.. But today

I finally got the bugger!

Yep, I'm a happy bunny.

I'd take more Haste for nin or mnk anyday of the week. For example for a ninja each percentage of haste equal 1 less second on the recasting time. From what I recall 2 Str equal 1 dmg. I would take a haste item anytime I can over str.

Well I am glad to hear your Static is full Burli, I have found some pickup parties as well as the rest of my Static Party this week. They have been willing to party with me even though they are lvl 60 and will remained capped until I have caught up. I am 7k away from lvl 58, time for another coffer {/sigh}. Lets see so other than getting back to experience points. I spent all my money this week on my Red Mages Spells that I have been missing, and some Black Mage Spells I am missing. I am only missing Barsilence, Barblind, and Phalanx for a RDM57/BLM25. Unfortunalty as soon as I level my BLM or my RDM I will be behind again ><. What a lifestyle. Anyways hope to run into someone online this weekend. Hopefully, I can catch the Static Party over the weekend. *Yuck 60k experience in one weekend. Well Take Care.!

My Fuma Kyahan is for my monk so I don't have to worry about recast time on Utsusemi, but I can see the point. But being a mithra monk, the strength is a better bonus to DOT, and str+3 may add 1.5 points to damage, but also adds points to your base damage when figuring out damage output. I think Effen's FAQ in the the monk forum talks about this. But I do have the Brown Belt to add Haste +8%, so the extra 3% doesn't seem that big of a loss.

Over the weekend I finished up leveling war, then started on summoner. Just got to lv20 last night, so tonight I will level up my summoning skill (currently 55), and be prepared to take on my first on Lightday tomorrow morning. I'll probably try out Shiva just because I'm from Sandy. Plus from what I've heard, Shiva's one of the tougher ones so it'll be a gauge on how well I've prepared for the avatars.

Well, I had an eventful Weekend ^^

I've been making full use of this expansion, exploring it with a friend, first stop Bibiki Bay. Now this place is beautiful, I can't get enough of it, the manaclipper rides are fantastic, especially macalania (sp) reef.

Next stop, Movopolis, great at first, really fun to treck around getting hit with frying pan reverberation and fireworks, but after a bit, you just get a bit lost and tired of the place >.<

Attowha Chasm, reminded me of Honey I shrunk the kids, big bugs, big trees, big chasms.

Carpenter's landing, ugh, I hate spiders, this place is covered in webs, but the place has a great atmosphere about it, basically a boggy marsh.

Where else.. Hmmm, I think that's it so far. Oh, have to mention, don't go too far around on the first part of Bibiki Bay without invis/sneak, we ran too far, into a party fighting a gob, hit for 550 damage by bomb toss. It was a level 65 party >.<

---Ramblings Stop----

As for the most eventful part, I got engaged ^^; To Vadne, someone I've known for most of the 6 months I've been playing, can't wait Smiley: grin

Levelling, after a static member was away for a week, he returned to static on Sunday, We got 10k exp and I gained level 56 plus 7.5k into it... Now our RDM is away for a week -.-;

Why oh why, must I be tortured so? Static parties are only good for migranes. Smiley: oyvey

Sorry for the long post Smiley: blush

Not yet, mean to >.<

Those are incredibly high level areas right? We were more in for the exploration, didn't really want to sneak around, but now we're done with that, we'll get to the more intense exploring, probably bring the linkshell along too.

Thanks for the tip ^^

Well Ulegurand, high level, I'd says so. With my rng, mobs scan from ep to vt.

Lufaise I dunno, You have to complete Promyvion-Dem, Promyvion-Holla, & Promyvion Mea to gain access to this place via the spiral vortex's in qufim and dunes.

So far I've only completed Promyvion-Mea, 2 more to go. Can't wait.
