Monday 11/11/13 – Happy Veterans Day & Happy Mender’s Monday!
This weeks Mender’s Monday was at The Wolves Den in Lower La Noscea. To get there, teleport to Moraby Dry Docks, talk to the Ferry Skipper and then take the Ferry to The Wolves Den. There is an Aetheryte there, so you can have an easy port out there the next time. We thought it would be a great spot, since for now its kind of deserted (until PVP is released) and it has a moogle mail and a Retainer summon bell. It was a nice location, only downfall was that some were disappointed that they couldn’t fish despite being completely surrounded by water. Merikosum streamed this Mender’s Monday.
Struck me as kind of odd, and even though I haven’t even picked up fishing, I went ahead and made a thread post on the forums asking if it was intended or overlooked. Seems like fishing in between matches would be something that some would do.
I was able to get my Alchemist from level 20 to Level 25 during this session! I spent the time making Potions of Dexterity (bat fang + rock salt) and turning them in at Quarrymill for a tradescraft leve there! Most progress I’ve made on any crafting class since 1.0!
Tuesday I logged in with the plan of doing as many Wanderer’s Palace sessions as I could and then do our FC Titan practice for new members who are wanting a chance to get to know the fight.
In actuality, I ended up doing one Wanderer’s Palace run, and then when only three people were available to try the Titan practice (we have to have a full party of FC for this, so we don’t deal with garbage of others rage-quitting etc while we’re trying to let people learn the fight) we instead spent the evening doing low level FATE’s with Mini Ninja, Kaelk, Cutie, Sunny Day, Merikosum, Euramon, Selphy, Tiny, and a few others. I did get one level on my scholar and its now 37.
Woke up early Wednesday before work and did one Wanderer’s Palace with a duty Finder party.
Spent the next hour leveling my alchemist, and got to level 28.
After work came home and did a few more Wanderer’s Palace with Nicos, Merik, Mini & Lt Death and spent the rest of the evening crafting on alchemist again. Was able to make some hi-potions for Quarrymill leve, then switched to making horn glue for a Ul’dah Leve. Visited with Distant World Members who happened to be in Costa Del Sol while I was crafting there. Was surprised by Sunny Day who used the Fantasia bottle to grow up and become a hyur! Congrats to Obisi Wanli who got her monk relic +1 today!
Thursday 11/14/13 – Lightning Strikes!
Logged in early morning because I was too curious about the Lightning quest and the FATE involved. Learned after an hour and a half of trying to get credit for the overcrowded FATE part that perhaps waiting until after all the rush may be a better solution for actually getting to enjoy that Quest and FATE and for getting any desired screenshot.
Far too many people were there camping the one with the crabs in Middle La Noscea. Took my alt to where the dodo Gertrude spawns in Western La Noscea and finally got credit though there were still to many people and didn’t even get to see the Lightning NPC, only the chat was visible in the chat log & the music was definitely FFXIII. . I got Lightning’s gloves for completing the quest, and since my alt only has conjurer, I got the FFXIII inspired conjurer’s weapon (Vanielle’s weapon) for her. I’ll try it later with Katella for real.
Was able to see Behemoth for the first time! Yay!
Mini had a surprise for us….
Changed her character for the time being. Its something that seems to be going around though.. It seemed to start with Sunny, and then Nicos & Mini and a few others changing races/genders etc.. lol. I’m having a hard time keeping up.. thank goodness for the name above their heads. ^^
Me… I will continue to stay the same normal boring me..
Mini took me around, and helped me start fishing.. its really not all that bad actually. I’m level 5 now!
Saturday 11/16/13 – Lightning Strikes! Quest #2
We tried the Lightning Fate again, this time with more success and was able to see Lightning! Yay! Here is a video I was able to capture! You can see at the beginning of the FATE I was still having trouble trying to get my system to actually level-sync.. I think that is likely my computer issue though.. However I did get it to finally take and I did get to see Lightning, which as one of the few FFXIII lovers… really made my day! Also.. got Lightning’s legs! yay!
Today Blindrage was able to login! Yay, its been about a month. He’s not been feeling well at all, and then got in a car accident. But he was feeling good enough today to be on for a short time and run a Brayflox dungeon with Merikosum, Clax and I. Was fun. Before he logged I gave him the special “Get Well” gift from Pico! It totally made his day! Happy Blindrage! Thanks so much Pico Man!
I Finally got the 9 Potash saved up, and asked my good friend Lucife to make it for me. Its very cool that its signed! Thanks so much Lucifie!! Here is a picture of Me and the new Sunny Day, in our Vanya’s. Mithrie made Sunny’s Vanya.
