As I reached 40 on pup last week, I did the quest for the SoulSoother head (WHM pup head), and after a Scroll of Regen (they had no Cure V’s in) three days, and two cups of imperial coffee, I recieved Serenade’s new head piece! Here is the first equip of it! 🙂
After that, I did a couple of Campaign’s, got kicked off when I zoned in to Eldieme (S), as the server was appearently having issues with certain zones.. Luckily they fixed it.
Later Saturday, Blindrage duo’d the dancer job with me again for a couple hours, and this time instead of me subbing whm I actually subbed /PUP with Serenade with the SoulSoother head attachment. It was really fun! I really enjoyed it, and it was more functional than I thought it would be at that low of a level. I wasn’t sure if she would be too low to cast cure on party members, but lo and behold, she did!
An action shot.. lol
I had more fun than I’ve had in awhile!
Sunday I logged in for a bit, and helped Kauri work on her Scholar. She has picked an interesting combination. She was playing SCH/SMN. After seeing her play it, I think its the route I’m going to go as well. More MP, and a pet to help if needed. Plus, subbing /whm, /blm, /rdm just seems very redundant to me. Especially when you can use Addendum: White or Addendum: Black. You can equip pieces for the MND & INT stats, and auto refresh at 50 just seems like a likeable trait. I’m sure there are reasons why no one is really doing this, but it looks fun, and that is what matters!
I sure miss having a group of friends that are on at the same time as I am, I’ve been here since October and still only know a handful of people. The ones that I’ve really connected with have either left, or aren’t on very much anymore. Kauri is throwing around the idea of going back to Ramuh.. I don’t know.
I think I was near the same place when we left there, There are lots of people there that I miss, but just like here, I was spending a lot of time on my own either farming, soloing or whatever as everyone is/was usually busy. At least here, I’ve managed to progress on some things.. I really don’t know.. The people I’ve ran into here at Ifrit seem to be less into belittling others and trying to show how “elite” they are. There is more of a positive energy here, and that is what I appreciate about this place. Less condemnation by strangers for only being able to play a couple hours, a few times a week.
That being said, I sure do miss the group of friends from Ramuh so I’m really feeling conflicted and torn at the moment. I’d love to be able to play with the friends on Ramuh more, but even if I went back, I would wonder if I’d just feel like before? especially since I’m the one with the playtime constraints now, maybe I would be the issue there, and worse yet, would I just get stuck in the rut I was in?
