So thanks to the wonderful advice from Frohike, I am now level 18 Alchemy, and a the next rank. That was so much easier than fishing all those jellyfish, (and maybe even cheaper because I had lost my lure a couple times, and those are like 2k each.. )
Next recipe is the Echo drops to get to 20 – so I scoured Vana’diel looking anyplace that sells honey (other than the Auction House) but was unsuccessful, so when I have a little more time to play I will take Verricks advice and farm them. Honey seems to be a hard item to find if you are from San d’Oria.. the bees in the immeadiate area of Ronfaure don’t seem to drop honey, least for me.. >< so I will need to go abroad and level some lower level something in either Windy or Bastok. I did learn to only buy Sage in San d’Oria.. as it is much cheaper there than anywhere else I’ve found.
Our Static met this Sunday.. I felt so rusty, but it went well. I had missed them all, and it was nice to all be together again. We went to Aydeewa Subterrane and killed Defoliators… we were killing them so fast we had to stop and let them re-spawn a few times.
I’m kind of thinking we might try the puk’s again the next time we party and see how that goes. We had invited a second monk to be our sixth member and we killed lesser colbri’s untill he got there. The second monk had not played in a long time and had only been back on the game in the last couple days, so it was his first party in the new areas. After the party disbanded we helped him get his Olduum Ring.
Spent some time the day before (Saturday) trying to help Mieka & Kary get Stray Mary to pop, as Mieka wanted her own Mary’s Horn. We spent a good two hours + out there, but alas.. no Mary 😦 There were at least two other people out there killing sheep I believe most likely for the same reason we where out there, because they were higher levels.
