So off and on this past week a few of us have been running around on our Blue Mages, collecting spells. It has been fun, and aggrivating at times to say the least, lol. Mostly been working helping people get spells that I actually already have, but last night we actually was worked on one that I needed. Squeekers, Jedafu, Velsol, and I took a trip to Outer Horratio Ruins to learn Bludgeon. I actually learned it on the very first Cardigan that used the spell, so that was cool. We pulled some more while we were there to try and help Jedafu learn the spell. While we were there, Some high level Monk/Ninja kept running through and zoning all the cardigans, which was very annoying. As they would pop, we’d pull them for Jedafu as soon as we could before the guy would run through again. It was a couple times of that that we ended up getting a hint as to what was actually happening, when we saw the Jack of Coins NM. At the time we thought he was being a jerk and despawning everything to spawn this NM, however as I look up info on this particular NM, it appears that maybe he was just trying to complete a Windurst mission and was zoning for his life.. lol. Both Squeekers and I felt the wrathe of Jack of Coins and were sent back to our homepoints. He defeated Katella with Thunder II for 249 points, when I only had around 120 to begin with.. lol. I ran but there was no hiding, and no use.
It turns out he is a level 62 NM that is specifically spawned for Windurst Mission 6-1: Full Moon Fountain see here for details: http://wiki.ffxiclopedia.org/Windurst_Mission_6-1
After the NM moved on – not sure if someone else defeated him, or if he left the area we were at. We ended up getting Jedafu’s Bludgeon, and headed off towards Giddeus. There are so many different rumors and ideas floating around, if you have to have hate on you to learn it, if you don’t, etc… I’m not sure that it really says for sure anywhere, mostly I go by what it says on http://wiki.ffxiclopedia.org/Main_Page , but everyone has thier ideas, so I spent the rest of the night farming Giddeus Bees while they tried to get thier spell.
I think tonight if we do this again, I may head over to Konstat Highlands with my NPC while they are trying to learn Head Butt, as it didn’t appear I was actually helping that much. Maybe with my NPC, I could get Healing Breeze before they want to head back to Sandy for Blood Drain and Blastbomb (Which I also already have).
