This weekend I participated in three Besieged’s total. Saturday Morning there were two back to back. I got a great picture of the three-headed dragon thing, and I’ll get it posted here soon. It was fun, and I was needing something fun to do, my sweet little family LS (Tortuga) has been deserted the last couple weeks.. one or two, maybe three people total for a very short time if I was lucky.
Its kind of sad, but I know everyone has things to do, I included, and Real Life always comes before the game. I know all that, and still, there is this tiny party of me that feels a little abandoned… (totally unfair of me to think that way – I know), time for me to grow up a little I guess.
I just have this nagging feeling to be a “part” of something in this game to make it more enjoyable.. and I’m not sure what to do about it right now..
I was able to get Rainer & Mieka to come skillup with me in Boyhoyda Tree. I ended up with a Lucky Egg and some nice skill-ups before I had to actually leave. Not sure what to do with the Lucky Egg, but its cool. Was going to look it up, but the FFXIclopedia site is down today 😦
Saturday night, I didn’t have a flag up even, and got invited to a party, which I accepted at Kauri’s urging. It was on my whm in the Halvung area. Luckily I had the Lebros staging point, course I had no map of the area.. lol but thier whm that was leaving, showed me where they were. We were fighting crawlers that I had heard all kinds of horror storys about, but they really weren’t all that bad. Their “Incinerate” move they did, could be nasty I suppose, but at no point in time were we even near death. It was actually kind of relaxing.. lol Although I suppose it could have all been luck, as we weren’t there on Fire day either. It was comical when one popped in camp, and it popped asleep.. lol. I ended up getting 10k in just a couple hours, and went to bed about 1k tnl.
Sunday afternoon was the third besieged I participated in, and it was there that I got my level. I’m only like 700+ into it, but I’m now a 67 WHM and can wear the death earring I bought a couple weeks ago. I also bought a antivenom earring. My next goal is to actually replace the death earring with a insomnia earring, then I probably won’t be purchasing any other earrings for awhile, although a magician’s earring looks tempting since I /smn most of the time, but it is pretty expensive. Although prices on the server seem to be dropping all the time.
While I waiting on the Besieged to start, I worked on Alchemy, and reached level 43, which means I need a new recipe.. hopefully a cheap one.
Also, I’ve been occasionally leveling Kauri’s whm, as Kauri has no time anymore, and hasn’t even logged in since we took that picture with Squeekers when he left for the Ifrit server. It’s currently level 13, half way to 14.
Work has been keeping Kauri very busy, so doesn’t have time 😦 Kauri wasn’t real intererested in leveling whitemage anyway, but now that the static is dissolved, other people aren’t very willing to party with a rdm/nin dispite the fact that Kauri has always more than done the job. Fighting, enfeebling, keeping everyone refreshed, and even back up curing. Not many people can do it, which is why everyone looks down on it, but Kauri does it with flair, and since we were always in static it was fine for her to play that way, but now, most won’t even give it a chance, so to continue she’s going to have to have some /mage job. Its sad really.
Since Kauri’s been lacking in time lately, I offered to help level her whm. I love the job, so any opportunity is fun for me, plus helps her out. Well, maybe.. that is if things ever get to the point where Kauri will have time, or feel like playing again.
