It’s been pretty quiet. Mostly I’ve been working on leveling thf, and leveling crafts fishing & alchemy.
With thf, I have reached 17 – entirely solo’d. The reason was three-fold.
* First – I wanted to actually see if I could actually level a job to 20 without stepping in the Dunes. Not that I’ll make a habit of leveling other jobs that way, but kind of feels like a bit of an accomplishment that I actually did it alone.
* Second I was farming for items I needed for crafting at the same time, two birds with one stone if you will.
* Third – it was just a change of pace. I was also trying to work on capping skills before I level, attempting to keep the char skills on that job pretty solid, which doesn’t seem to happen when I jump into parties and hurry to level. I have a bit to go to reach 20, don’t know if I’ll make it, but we’ll see.
On Alchemy – My Goal is to be able to make Poison Potions (18), then Echo Drops. In the past few days I have gone from level 9 to level 12 making Poison Dust (12) with Lightning Crystals and Yellow Globes. Which makes me aware of what a great place Qufim is for this particular recipe… Run over here.. Kill an Thunder Elemental or two.. then run over there and fish the Yellow Globes. No gil cost, only the cost of time, and a few Sabaki Rigs ><.
Fishing also reached 12, though my next targeted fish is not going to help me skill up any, but I will need them for Alchemy to reach my goal there. Once I have done that then I’ll be able to target Shining Trout and Cheval Salmon and use them to work on skilling up cooking once more.
With the Holidays over, and people finally back.. lol.. I am anxiously awaiting our static to start again. I really would like to use some of the scrolls sitting in my MH collecting dust.. lol. We are set to begin again this next Sunday.
