I’m starting to get disheartened… We again had no static this weekend. 😦
However I did end up getting alot accomplished. First on Friday I went thru and finished up completing a few quests that I had open in Windy, and thru them obtained a misery staff, a map to Fey’in, and the Warp II scroll. I also spent some time in Fey’in trying to find the treasure chest, but after two hours and looking three times in all the spots shown on the Vana’diel Atlas site, I gave up for now.. Someone must have got it and I missed out.
Saturday, I changed to blm/thf and went farming in Giddeus for yag necklaces. Kinkykitty later joined me and I ended up with enough yag necklaces to get me to level one in clothcloth craft. Then I turned around and used earth crystals and the thread made from the yag necklaces to make cottoncloth and was able to get to level two.
Logged back in later that night, we went to Aht Urghan, but our static didn’t end up going, so four of us headed back to Jeuno to work on 20-22’s in Qufim. We partied for awhile till people got tired and disbanded. Didn’t level though.. lol I’m still 21 ninja. Ninja is cool, but I have the worst time figuring out the timers, and my shadows don’t seem to last long.
Once the party was over, I took Squeekers and Kinkykitty to go do the quest for thier Olduum ring. Greywyn ended up joining us as well. It went pretty uneventful.. luckily. Greywyn had been gone for a few months, and had asked Squeekers if he had ever got the rest of his BLM AF, and he hadn’t, and Kinkykitty stayed for that as well as she only had her weapon for BLM AF done. We found the first coffer before we even found a key.. it didn’t take us very long and we had the first key, and Squeeker’s had his blm AF body. Spent a little more time there and got a key for Kinkykitty, and found another coffer so she was able to get hers as well. Probably the quickest most painless coffer key/coffer hunt I’ve been on, though Squeekers might not agree as he ended up dying once right after he got his… lol.
Sunday, I crafted a few more orange juices and reached level 10 on cooking skill. Then I dug my thf out and went to the lake in W. Ronfraure to farm Sleepshrooms and earth crystals. I did alright then one of my LS’s mentioned that they were trying to put together a level 14 party, and so I offered up my 14 brd. I joined them and ended up reaching level 18. I really like most of the people in all the LS’s I have. However, just like in real life, there are always people that bug you or that get on your nerves.
Without naming any names.. I have found my newest pet peeve: Anyone who constantly feels the need to put down other jobs, or people, and/or people that use the word Newb, or noob in every other comment. Everyone was new once, we should be helping people learn, not critisizing them.
Someone was making a comment about whm being the easiest job, which.. kinda ruffled my feather’s to begin with, but it was their opinion that they are entitled to, and I didn’t say anything about it for a real long time. Finally after much much more harping on the subject I just made the statement that I didn’t believe that whm was the easiest job, but that really if you think about it any job is easy if you don’t care about it. If you don’t like the job, you aren’t going to try to learn to be good at it, because you don’t care. While most of the people seemed to agree, I still got flamed and was told that I didn’t know what I was talking about despite that I was a level 60 whm, and that it was my main.
I didn’t say anything more, but it kind of hurt my feelings. I don’t have 3 jobs leveled to 75, or even one for that matter, and I haven’t completed CoP, or Zilart, and I haven’t seen Sky, or Sea, or Dynamis, but I have played for a year, and while I still consider myself a newer player, I don’t see the point in putting people down. I still play this game for fun… not because it is the only thing I have going. I have a lot of real life things that are more important, and that require my attention and time, so I don’t play as much as alot of people. So maybe I am a Newb still, I don’t know, but I wouldn’t change it for anything. I love my real life the most. Maybe I shouldn’t get frustrated over it, because maybe the reason some people are so interested in pointing out everyone else’s faults is because they don’t really have self confidence in themselves.. I don’t know.. either way.. hurt my feelings a bit to basically have been told I know nothing. sorry /rant off
Anyways.. then later Sunday night Fuddyduddy, Kinkykitty, Kauri & I just ran around La Theine Plateau, Fuddy was 12 nin, Kinky was mnk, Kauri was drk, and I was pup. I actually ended up leveling to 13, before we called it a night. I ran back to Sandy.. sold a couple things on the Auction House, and called it a night.
