On Saturday morning, (early morning) I woke up.. noticed I had quite a lot of dark crystals from when I had been farming sleepshrooms for cooking, and figured I would put them to work, and clear my inventory a bit. So I headed to Konstat Highlands for sheepskins. I would make a stack of sheep leather, (or try, since I had no skill level in Leather craft yet) fill my inventory to the brim, warp back to Sandy, send it to my mule Laurelai, and then return to the Highlands to do it again. After a few hours of this, and even after going back to bed for an hour, I came back out and was wanting to find a few more to finish my stack.
When what to my wondering eyes should appear.. (lol.. sorry.. ’tis the season).. Not Santa.. but Stray Mary!! The very one I have read about so much about in other’s blogs, and had always heard how elusive she is. So I threw a Dia on her quickly before anyone else claimed her. I really lucked out. She was standing on the other side of one of those windmills.. and as I had walked by.. I had just watched a high level theif warp out on the opposite side of the same windmill. I claimed her, and got a sheepskin, a jug of Mary’s Milk, and Mary’s Horn!!
I logged out after that.. leaving on a high note.. lol Much later, I logged back in and Kinkykitty was needing a cube of Lanolin that drops from Battering Rams in La Theine Plateau. We killed a couple and then noticed that there was a guy in crafting attire following us while we were looking for the Battering Rams. I asked him if he was needing something from them, he said yes, so I suggested partying up, since all Kinky needed was a cube of Lanolin and he agreed. He was a 75 thf/rng. It was so cool watching him, widescan must be pretty great, and almost made me want to go level ranger. We ended up getting Kinkykitty’s Lanolin and I got one too, for when I decide to do that quest. It was fun.
Sunday night was our static, and I have to say, it was one of our better ones. We all had so much fun. We were able to invite a BLU named Ellenzar who fit in wonderfully.. lol. They are a very fun bunch. I guess we are a little different than the normal static, in that while it is our intention to level, we are pretty easygoing and enjoy each other’s company. Its not all about the grind. Ellenzar and Squeekers both reached 62, Kauri, Kinkykitty & I all three reached 61. Which means that we can do the GK4 now and get it out of the way.
There were actually times where we had to wait for everything in the room to respawn. I’d never seen that room completely empty before.. lol.
