On Saturday, Blindrage (pld) , Pitbull (drk) and I (brd) logged in and ended up in a party in Crawlers Nest. We were level 38-41, and we ended up getting one more level out of it each. I think I should probably take on one party to catch up to them, as I am now a 39 Bard to thier 41 drk and 42 pld. We were killing Nest beetles pretty quickly, but once Blind hit 42 the exp dropped dramatically. We ventured out to a different camp in the secret room, however two pulls and the party disbanded when we wiped to a different kind of Beetle (can’t remember the name, but wasn’t the same as the Nest ones). It was fun to play bard again though.
Sunday I had a lot of real life events going on, so we didn’t static, although later that evening we were going to work on level 22 things, and I was kinda excited because I thought I was going to get my thf closer to its “for now” goal of 25. However it ended up being that there was no tanks available, so I ended up playing my ninja which was also 22. Ninja is ok sometimes, but I really am not that good at it. I know its just a matter of practice, but I’m not ready at the moment. When I take up ninja, I want to actually use ninjitsu spells more than just utsusemi, and at this point in time I can’t afford to play it the way I want to, so its not as enjoyable for me. We didn’t play that long, and then we disbanded as it was kind of late anyway when we started and multiple people were tired.
I rarely join parties during the work week, but lastnight I joined a party on my Bluemage. I got 3/4 through level 26 when I decided I had better go to bed. It was fun. I also discovered that I had forgotten that I still needed to learn Screwdriver.. so I headed back to Jeuno. I think I will need to try and learn it off of the Pugils there, because the ones in the Dunes may be too low.. I don’t know.
