Quick update, sorry… I’ll add the rest of the pictures a little later…
I actually had been able to get into a party that got me a half of a level and let me reach 34.
After that I went back to soloing, and was able to get my Puppetmaster to level 35! Whitemage head here I come 🙂
From there I took some time off leveling to do a little farming/puppet skilling up session in Delkfutt’s tower as a 71 whm/ 35 pup. This works really good for me, however it occurs to me that I only have two more levels that I can skill her up in that way, and thats only if I level my whm to at least 74, which probably isn’t happening for awhile.
So from here on out, I will have to be more cautious about evenly skilling up her melee, magic & ranged skills.
It was fun “farming” with her tagging along. I may want to find a way to incorporate the Pup job into farming… that may mean I’ll have to go level thf again… and be leveling thf on two characters? hmm… we’ll see I guess.
I am very pleased with the scanner attachment. While her highest nuke at the time was Thunder, I could see that it was definately working because on all the thunder based mobs, thunder elementals etc.. she used her next highest nuke.. Blizzard. When we came across a Light elemental, she used Thunder. Also the puppet is smart enough to calculate what nuke would do enough damage to take out the mob. She would alot of times end a battle with Aero, or Fire even. I had thought originally that meant that she was out of MP, but when I checked, that definately had not been the case. At the end of the skill-up session, I was able to re-cap all of her skills again which is nice, and she learned Stone II! That was so cool the first time she did it on a Lightning Elemental! /cheer tier II spells!
I’d done a lot of research awhile ago, and had plotted out what kind of playstyle I wanted for my PUP. I planned them out with pretty balanced attributes, least I think. I even decided that while a few of the most expensive attachments sounded very cool, they would prove to throw my balance off, so I decided not to worry about getting them for now. Currently I have 4 attachments still left to get, to complete out my balanced builds. Eraser is the most expensive.. I’m definately going to have to farm a lot more with her to get that one.. lol.
