I’ve always been about two levels below Blindrage and Doomsday when we’ve partied with that group. The last time we partied I was real excited because I was so close to level 50, and that meant I would have Raise again, as well as both Sneak & Invisible (as BRD/WHM). However we ended up stopping about 1k tnl 50.
Blindrage has been so so busy, that we haven’t partied on those in quite a while, so I decided to go and try a Campaign as my level 49 bard, and see if I could get my level. I didn’t want to get in a full party, because then I’d be wanting to stay and level more, plus it was only 1k I needed. I want to continue to party with him on his Pld 52, whenever he gets time again.
I was kind of expecting to get nasty comments actually, like what used to happen when anyone under 50 would go to a Besieged on Ramuh. Luckily, people were still very nice, and no one said a word, and people even raised me when I died.
I ended up using my reraise hairpin. I think if there was one thing I’d change about Campaign, it would be to have an additional person at each outpost that you could buy a regular “Scroll of Reraise” from at any time. So far I’ve only been able to buy one “temporary item” of it, because usually there aren’t any resources available. Oh.. and I really don’t like the “Kindred” Beastmen ones!.. lol those hurt!
Anyhow after a few Campaign’s I reached level 50 on my Bard. I may try another few Campaign’s on it soon, just so that I can be enough into the level, that if something happens, somewhere else I won’t delevel. Word to the wise though.. if you try any job that is under 50 in a Campaign try the following: #1 Try very hard to stay back (mage jobs might be easier to do this with.. lol) as the AoE’s can really hurt. #2 Be patient, and only “nuke” or “enfeeble” a little at a time.. resist the urge to go all out.. because despite all the 75’s hitting it, you still can pull hate, and it will really really hurt..! lol # 3 Probably only go after mobs being beat on by multiple people… lol # 4 Avoid getting the attention of “magical” mobs.
Here is a picture of Katella in her new body Armor, I love it when you get to a point where the armor actually starts looking nice! 🙂
I can now equip my insomnia earring and antivenom earring as well, so that is a treat!
I need to do some farming soon to be able to update the rest of my armor for that job, or any job.. lol as I’m down to 20k again, but I’ve been having so much fun with these Campaigns, I’ve done little else lately… lol ^^
Oh.. and ended up getting the second medal ( I think its a Brass Medal) for my participation in the Campaigns.
