Small update, I apologize for lack of updates lately. I have been pretty busy in real life, and when I wasn’t busy, the MS was acting up, and I didn’t feel much like playing… anything.
I did get to play FFXI last weekend a little with Kauri ‘s dragoon and my ninja. In doing so my Ninja is now level 23, and it was all done without any Sheihei… lol. (Yes I know, I’m a disgrace to ninja’s everywhere, but keep in mind.. I’m just a healer at heart.. lol. To make it worse.. I was Nin/Whm to her Drg/War … so there.. hehe).
Valkrum Dunes is such a different place than when I first started this game. I remember when I began, it was always buzzing with people all over the place, lots of parties and activities. The other night it was near dead. There were a few people soloing or duoing, but that was absolutely it. I can tell there has been a definate change in approach people take in playing this game. I’m definately not complaining because I think it now lends itself better to people balancing out their real life and still being able to enjoy the game, that being said though, I think I’d still like to have a regular party once in awhile.. lol.. (Did I say that?) lol
However duo & solo & trio’s are good too, and there is definately less stress in playing that way. Especially if you are there to just enjoy yourself and not “grind”.
Hope everyone is doing well. There are major things happening in my real life during the next 6 months, but I’m still going to try and squeeze in some updates and play time, as everyone needs time to relax eh? FFXI has been a way for me to unwind and relax, when it has been available. The Rappelz & Shaiya games are ok, but the desire to play them dwindles dramatically when FFXI is available.
I still would like to get Katella’s whm to 75. I don’t know that it will happen before the end of this month, but If I get to keep my connection a little longer then we’ll see.
