Just a question to everyone out there.. Do all servers have a problem keeping people to go on these runs?
To me.. it seems like you finally get a full party.. you go farm the recollections for the animas.. and once you get everyones stuff, or real close to it… then someone leaves.. and you have to find another member, and farm again.. or just go without everyone having the animas. I’m starting to think the only way to survive CoP is to find a static. /rant off
So anyways… We finally get everyone ready, and set out. We get up to the spire, worked out our plan and tried it. Unfortunately, we didn’t fare too well, and all ended back up in Jeuno. /sigh
Really Really wanting to get this accomplished.. We were able to keep a few of our members /add a few more, and try it all again. Farmed anima’s again.. made our way back up to the spire.. with me leading the way.. lol.. (personally I think we were lucky we found the memory receptical’s & the spire, because I was only going on the premise that I read once – When in doubt, travel SW in Mea)
This time we had more teamwork.. and we got so close.. with just a sliver of life left on the boss, before we ran out of anima’s.. and died to its AoE. I reraised, and tried to get another Bloodpact out before Astral Flow ran out.. but wasn’t successful, and the boss kicked me once more with his long spindle leg.. and I was again down for the count. 😦 I think a few people wanted to try again.. but I really couldn’t, by that time I was literally just shaking.. we had been at it since around 8 am, and it was now 4pm and as stupid as it sounds.. my nerves were shot. It had been a very valliant effort.
Despite all that, I have to say I’m very thankful for my friend Eliktro.. cause in the end, I think we will end up completing this one because of his great attitude and persistance. ^^ I’m hoping Next Saturday we can try again and hopefully succeed, and finally get to see Lufaise Meadows.
Sunday I started crafting and got my cooking up to 38. I need to go take the rank up test in Windurst yet.. but maybe I’ll do that tonight. Also, I farmed more and leveled my alchemy to 19. Sunday night we got ready for our static, but then found that Fuddyduddy had homework that he needed to work on (and /salute to Fuddy, for keeping priorities straight ^^ ), so we headed out to the dunes with a 13-16 party.
Kauri and Cecilex both got levels. Both Kauri and Squeekers have been working alot lately, and Kauri was exhausted, so we said one last one. Kinky pulled a Skelly, lol.. and then the fun started.. hehe. Our Whm ended up using benediction and running for the gates of Selbina, and a good part of us decided to go ahead and fight it and bloodwarp back home. It was kind of comical..
