Whew! Its been a bit of a whirlwind the last few weeks. One of the fun things that happened on Valentine’s Day (2/14/15) Yoshi-P graced Masamune with a visit. He really loves us! (j/k.. well maybe..) The crowd around him was so huge I never personally got to visually see his character, but I did get to see him talk to the players ingame for a good 20-30 minutes it seemed. We even all visited Costa Del Sol with him. He answered a few questions about things coming up, like the then not yet released Golden Saucer. I kept going back and forth between the game and Google translate to see what he was saying..
Here is a picture that Distant World Community Member Lucina Yozora got of him!
One of my fellow FC member Professor Hojo sent Yoshi-P a message in English, and Yoshi responded back in English no less!
I’ve decided that this is my Wedding Attending Attire from now on. I dyed the spring dress to match the ribbons on the healing hat from World of Darkness. I like it. :) The gearset is named “Fancy” lol…
Also I got to go to Lucife Xavikon & Mrs Lynn’s wedding.. the real one not the rehearsal this time! :) Lucife has been such a great friend since 1.0, so was such a great pleasure to be able to join him for his character wedding!
Here is a few of us waiting for Lufife & Mrs Lynn to get prepared for the ceremony! :)
Another fun filled Wedding I ended up attending was Sa’Niquel Amrita & Rubiieus Amrita’s wedding. Sa’Niquel, better known as Niqote from the FFXIV Forums. At that one I was surprised the amount of Non-Masamune names that I still recognized. Names like Reinheart who was dressed in his expected sublingar. (You can see him sitting next to Merikosum Neaman in the picture below). Forums Artist Vergil Renata, and Yarn collector Antanias Lebreska, and many others you always see chatting it up in Nique’s “Super General Discussion 2.0 – Always offering a happy, fun time~!” Official Forums Thread. Nique & Rubi’s wedding was a ton of fun. It struck me as ironic to see all the “new player” leafs above so many of their guests heads, along side of the fact that the couple are a part of an FC on our server called “TeaCo” :)
Also, somewhere in the past three weeks (sorry so long between updates) I ended up getting my first sneak peek into Turn 10.
I didn’t get to stay long because I had to work, but was thankful to Pierce & a few others that were willing to take me along! Hopefully I’ll get to do it again soon.
Last week I was doing the Crystal Tower Weekly quest, and ended up finally getting the Onion Knight Minion! (Sorry for the dark picture.. the weather never cooperates with me when I get out of instances, its often night already.. lol)
Tuesday the 24th came which brought Patch 2.51 (primarily Golden Saucer Patch).
With it came the option to start getting the carbontwine to upgrade the Ironworks pieces, and for those of us that don’t have a group that runs final coil each week, that is a Twelve’s send! I realize I could have been grinding hunts…. but… I just don’t like doing them all that often. Too many times of running out there just to watch the horde finish it and not get anything out of it. So I’m really thankful to finally be able to effectively upgrade again! I upgraded my body piece and dyed it… What do you think?
In doing that CT weekly quest, I ended up getting the Onion Knight Card from Cloud of Darkness!
I started doing Primal HM & EX on a regular basis trying to get cards, This is my collection as of yesterday! I’ve now got Leviathin, Garuda, and Shiva! Funny thing is, while I really like collecting the Triple Triad cards.. I’m really no good at the card game part so far.
Sometimes it actually really frustrates me, because while math is not my best subject.. I’m fully able to add effectively in everyday life, but I’m still not able to quickly pinpoint the best card to use in “Plus” rule situations which… makes me feel pretty dumb honestly. Seems like it should be easy.. >< Plus I hear people in mumble who totally have it figured out and can beat King Elmer rather easily very often, and I’ve only beat him once in 10 tries. /sigh.. well I guess we can’t all be good at things.. >< I’m not really a gambler anyway, but I’ll still collect the cards I can from those that drop from battle content.
Yesterday was super lucky in that in one of the EX runs of Leviathan though, I got a second Levi card and I also ended up getting Enbarr! This was my very first Primal EX mount.
The only other primal mounts I really want is the Ramuh and Shiva’s horses. Its nice to have two reasons to go for enjoyable content.. cards and mounts. Maybe I’m a glutton for punishment, but I really like Ramuh EX, Shiva EX, and even Odin. Now I can actually run them a bit more often because people are actually queuing for them. Ramuh EX still rarely ever pops.. no one else seems to like it as much as I do.. ah well.. may just be a long process to get it…
