yay my Genkai 1 is finally complete, and I guess I'll share my story now.
Up until today I have been involved in the killings of over 100 Liches, I'd say between 100-150 liches without ever seeing a drop. Well today I was in an alliance seeking the item and finally it dropped. Unfortunately I didn't win the lot ; ;. There were 7 people needing it and I came up short. We killed for a while longer and still no drop, and the PT started disbanding...
So I went to Jeuno and started shouting (and I rarely shout for anything, especially help with quests), but I was offering 20k, 25k, 30k, and then 50k for people willing to help me get the Papyrus. Well there were no takers ; ;
After having killed so many Liches and only seeing 1 drop which I didn't win the lot for and seeing that no one wanted to help me, I got very discouraged and thought about quitting the game b/c I was so frustrated with the drop rate.
I told Xiane that I felt like quitting and he said don't worry he can find someone to help me^^. Well he asked his LS which I'm not a part of and not many people interested in helping except for one. Eunhye, high lvl mnk/war agreed to help me for absolutely nothing, and I was given new life in the game again!
We went to Eldieme Necropolis and hours went by with drops of bone chips and other useless stuff. After the 2nd hour and about 30-40 Lich kills, I figured Eunhye was tired of doing this with no benefit to herself so I said it's ok if she want's to leave for today. However, she said no way and kept killing Liches. Finally, after 1 hour later and what felt like 50 Liches, the drop came!! I tried to offer money but Eunhye refused.
I was happy about the drop, yes, but what I was more happy about was there there were people like Eunhye in the game willing to devote precious hours just to help someone they didn't even know for free. The reason I am still playing this game is not because I got all the items for Genkai1, but because of people like Xiane and Eunhye who make the game worthwhile^^. Even though it's just a computer game, I feel there are many things I learned playing it.
THANKS AGAIN ^_^
