This weekend, in making grape juices for Kauri for our lvl 17 static (for her paladin) I reached level 50 in cooking!
Also, I leveled Drk to 10 and got the weaponskill Dark Harvest, leveled my Cor to 10, and during our party, I got Pup to level 17. ^^
We are going to be doing some re-arranging for our 17 static, as the healing problem is becoming a real issue. Not sure what that will entail, other than that I think Kinky will be changing from sam/war to smn/whm for the next party, and it sounds like Squeekers is going to change from brd/whm to rdm/whm. More on that when we get it figured out though.
I helped Kauri get four blue mage spells this weekend also. We had incredible luck, and the worst scenerio we encountered was that she had to fight three of a certain mob to get the spell she was after. She acquired Bludgeon, Bomb Toss, Poison Breath & Head Butt. We spent more time traveling to get to the specific mobs than she did fighting them. It was pretty cool.
