but.. I made it online a few times this week.
On Saturday, I spent some time in North San D’Oria enjoying the Harvest Festival. The stories for the ghost witches were kinda sorta sad.. seeing as they were evil witches and all.. however I did come out of it with a witch hat and a coven hat. The hats are pretty cute.. and the coven may actually be one of the more useful “prizes” of any of the festivals I’ve participated in. (only other I can think of was the charm wand) The Coven hat – due to its Latent affect gives you +3% HP if your level is an odd number, or +3% MP if your level is an even number. I ended up dropping the witch hat in the interest of inventory space, but here are a few pictures from the festival.. lol.. and some pictures of what I might come back as if I don’t be a “good little taru” in this “life”… lol
Later on, we were able to recruit a couple of friends to head back to Eldieme to get a coffer key for Kauri’s RDM gloves. (I will be so relieved when we have completed this AF section of “life in Vana’diel”) It has proved to be a definate struggle. We did get a key for Kauri, then was trying to get another key for Kinkykitty, however it did not end well with my RR falling off >< about 30 seconds before I needed it, and not enough mp to re-cast it. Mieka threw a raise on me before she went, and then I attempted to raise our team, got 4 of us raised once before things spawned and killed us again. 😦 It was one of the more frustrating times in the game. Everyone ended up hp’ing – which I know happens from time to time.. but still – as a whm totally makes me feel like a failure. 😦
After that I did some tele’s and then tagged along with Mirith and her friend. It was fun, and put me in a better mood, before I went to bed.
Kauri, Kinkykitty & I went back on Sunday to look for the coffer. Kinkykitty found it, and Kauri recieved her “old gauntlets”
She did her cutscenes, and then Azari graciously joined us to go defeat the Dark Spark. (I totally forgot to take a picture.. sorry). It didn’t last that long, so Kauri warped back to Jeuno to recieve her gloves.
We then headed to Castle Oztroja to get the coffer key for her RDM top. A Paladin friend of Azari’s joined us, and despite not getting the key for Kauri, we did get a bunch of Kindred seals for him, and I ended up with some high level bard scrolls “Goddess Hymnus” ( or something like that)… I think I’m going to keep them, because I would like to level Bard some day. I also ended up with a Ninja testimony… hmmm.. lol will probably drop it later.. I doubt I’ll ever use it, but we’ll see. We were all getting very tired, so after a few more, I escaped us, and we logged for the night. Hopefully we will be able to try again.
Also worked on crafting a few times… (don’t get too excited.. lol) I am trying to keep oranges and water crystals on me so that every once in awhile I can make myself some orange juice (since that is the best thing I can make so far.. lol)
So I crafted while I chatted.. or at least while I sat in front of people.. lol
I got a few kinda neat pictures in the process and decided to try and make myself a “makeshift” sig.. here is what I came up with:
Not the best.. but ok for my first attempt ^^ you can click on the picture to see it better.. most of the pictures in here are like that (not all.. but most).
