So this weekend was pretty busy, Friday night I sat in Whitegate for a while shouting for ZM 6. I got a thf and a drg to agree to come, and then my good friend Damiero sent me a /tell saying he would come help me on his rdm, and his daughter would also come on her blm. After shouting a bit more it became evident that no Tanks were interested, so Damiero decided to change to his ninja. We still had one spot open, and was now minus an rdm, so I asked my friend Rainer if he would come. He agreed, and even Mieka came along as well as insurance on her whm, just in case it didn’t go well and someone needed a Raise III. (I’m 67, so I still only have Raise II). We brought Echo drops, and ran out there, went in, and fought the three anticans. Tupatutu slept the other two, and we began. The fight went pretty well, the only close call was when the dragoon got hit pretty hard and took his life points pretty low, and then we were silenced, so had to use echo drop before we could cure him. Other than that, no one got hurt, and we were successful. We did the cutscene for ZM 7, (I wish I could find it somewhere online where I could watch it again, it was a cool one). So now I’m on Zilart Mission 8 – Return to Delkfutt’s Tower. I’m hoping to find people willing to do that one sometime this week. I do want to throw out a Huge thanks to Damiero, Tupatutu, Rainer & Mieka! You guys are awesome, as always 🙂
Went farming with Eliktro and Baetain again for a little while, that was fun, except the part where Eliktro got “Doomed”, and even three Cursna’s couldn’t remove it in time.. 😦
After that, I was to go work on Bard with Blindrage & Pitbull, but Pitbull hadn’t gotten his AF weapon yet, so I logged and looked up the information. Logged back in, and got Kauri to come with us to kill the NM for that quest. It went pretty easily, just a lot of running Pitbull around.. lol.
After we defeated the NM in Giddeus, and Pitbull got his Raven Scythe, the three of us went to Crawlers Nest, as no one else in our range was looking to party. We were running around finding what we could, and a bst asked us if they could join, I told them they could if they wanted to, but we were 42-44 and he was 41, and we didn’t really have a healer or anything.
He apparently decided not too, because he didn’t say anything further. We were fighting an occasional crawler and a lizards when we could pull one away without getting a link. The beastmaster (Jinxy.. something) then went and pulled three lizards and brought them over so they would link onto the one we were fighting.. and then this other party was saluting him because he had done it. Appeatently trying to kill us off. I thought they were such jerks, because we were on the otherside, and had even pulled a link off of them once. So I Hoard Lullaby’d the links, and we fought and defeated them all, just the three of us. It had gotten close, but we pulled out of it luckily. It’s not like we were doing anything wrong, we were still getting 60-130 exp off each mob, Its not like we were so high we weren’t getting points anymore, or even that we were taking all their mobs so they couldn’t party.. plus they had a powerleveler with them.. Why are people such jerks?
Vulkren joined us, and we moved down to beetles, and no one was down there. After a while though, another party came and camped on top of us. We eventually left, and ran back to Jeuno. I thought we were goner’s when that bst pulled that trick, but it actually made me realize why I like bard. Had I been a whm that level, we wouldn’t have survived, but bard is given songs that help their team members do thier job, and a chance to outlast what you are fighting. Don’t get me wrong.. WHM will always be my #1, but I am really enjoying bard as well.
OH.. and when the expansion comes out… I am SO getting the Dancer job! I’m so excited 🙂
