Real life was very busy this weekend, so I haven’t done a whole lot in Vana’diel. I’ve had an interests in getting maps lately, so on Friday night I did all the cutscenes for “The Prankster” Quest, which gives you a map for Caedarva Mire, but first you have to defeat an NM called Plague Chigoe in Bhaflau Thickets. I started shouting, as I knew I couldn’t take it alone, and Mieka offered to help me. So we went and we spawned the NM, and she killed it for me, I kept her cured and regen’d and she did the rest. Everytime the NM hits you it drains you of MP. I ended up getting the map, so I was very thankful.
Also, Ardan was on, and gave me a Moogle Pie, so that was very cool. 🙂
Saturday, I spent a couple hours partying in Garliage Citadel with Pitbull & Blindrage and a few other’s that we found. I ended up leveling to 44 brd. Blindrage is now at 46 pld, and Pitbull is 45 drk.
After that, I spent some time with a couple new friends, on low levels. It was fun. I ended up leveling my drk to 11, but deleveled to a Grenade mob.. ><
Sunday night, I went and got the map for Alzadaal Undersea Ruins it took me three trys, only because I didn’t read close enough, and was trying to give the Immortal 3 silver pieces instead of the 3 mythril pieces…. For those who haven’t done Aht Urghan mission 9, or haven’t purchased the map… Take 3 Imperial Mythril Pieces, and 1 Imperial Silver Piece, and trade the 3 mythril pieces first..
Once I finally got that done, I did the Nyzul Isle staging point. It was super easy to get to once I had the map for Alzadaal Undersea Ruins. You just take the first teleporter on the left (the brighter one), which warps you to another room. Then you again take the teleporter on the left (again the brighter one). Then once you are in the big room, just travel to J-8 or J-9 on the map, and click on the door there to get to the Runic Portal. You’ll see Qiqirn on the way, but they don’t aggro, so it seems to be a safe run. Was way easy for me.
I have two more staging points left to get, and I want to work on getting the map to Aydeewa Subterrane as well. As my time online has been real limited lately, I am fitting in these quests & projects as I can, not working on much else. Storylines on most of these quests I’ve done have been bittersweet like “The Prankster”. I’m enjoying cutscenes more lately.
