Not newest, but here is one of the most recent pics I got of Katella, I will get an updated one soon.
Through the weekend, I was able to get Katella up to 28 on both Priest and Knight. I really like the combo, but I’m not so sure of my skills, I still feel really slow when it comes to effectively targeting. I remember it made such a difference when I figured out the targeting macros in FFXI. Targeting options in RoM at a glance seem kind of limited. The few useful macro’s I’ve found seem to be more scripting instead of commands. I miss the commands.. lol! Wish I had a solid place to look up stuff, although I suppose thats the difference in playing a newer game vs. an established one like FFXI. I hate scouring forums looking for macros, tips, and explanations.. so frustrating. I’ve been spoiled for life I think by having the FFXIclopedia wiki.. lol.
In RoM, I still haven’t even figured out how to do the runes and tier stuff. The places I’ve found small bits of information, its unfortunately still seems greek to me.
I tagged along to provide extra heals as my priest for a Necropolis of Mirrors Run last night. It was fun although it was very laggy, and I sometimes had a hard time keeping up with the group. My computer is getting too old I think.. I did die twice. The first time was because someone inadvertently pulled the entire room and the boss mob. Luckily, I had soul bound (re-raise) on at that point, but the second time I didn’t.. actually the second time I died, no one could figure out what I died from.. I actually had raised a couple people and there were no mobs, nothing attacking, hit points went from full to nothing, and I just fell over. Was very odd. Luckily didn’t get any debt from it. Very annoying, but Soul Bond has a half an hour timer on it. Twice now I’ve been in parties where we’ve wiped, and raised myself, then group members, and then didn’t have the option to put it back on. I miss FFXI reraise.. I’m sure RoM is trying to make it a little difficult still by having that timer, but honestly, even when you could reapply reraise in FFXI pretty quickly, didn’t mean you’d have the mana, or even get the chance to.. so it works out. I think they should change it.. lol! All the regular mobs were 35-39 in Necropolis of Mirrors, so they were all red to me. I was probably still too low really to be in there.
On my knight, I broke down and bought 11 Life Crystals so that I’d have enough to get the level 25 elite skill. I had been trying to farm them in Forsaken Abbey, and dispite spending a couple hours a night for 2 and a half weeks, I had only gotten 4.
Now I need 15 more Life crystals for the other elite skill.. >< I may have to break down and buy them later..
Our Guild got a castle the other night. We went up and took a look. It was cool. I’ll post pictures of it later. We took a group picture there and when I was exploring afterward, I actually fell off the the side.. The castle is in the sky.. lol.. it was a long fall.
