Broke down and bought a few diamonds on their 30% off weekend, and Blindrage and I bought a mount each. It was a hard decision weither to buy a couple cheap mounts for a couple characters, or to buy one really cool one. In the end, decided if it actually cost, its better to get something we really liked as opposed to something we didn’t really care for.
For the longest time, I had had my heart set on buying a chocobo… err.. I mean Ostrich.. 😛 But at the last second, I saw this purple snow beast, and changed my mind.
Blindrage bought a green dragonfang (something) and then (accidentally) used his remaining diamonds to re-color it.
I used what diamonds I had left to buy a couple clothes racks for my house. They are basically manniquins that show the armor you put on them. Freed up some storage for me, and let me keep a couple sets that I really liked as sort of decoration for my house.. I was pleased.. plus now it looks like people are there to greet me when I get home.. lol!
Blindrage is now a level 33 Knight/Priest, and Katella is a level 32 Priest / 30 Knight.
No rest for the weary… lol
~ FFXIV news ~
Spent some time yesterday also looking up information on FFXIV. I’m really excited and really impatient for next year’s release of FFXIV. I’m hoping that SE has made some improvements, so that casual gamers can be a little more successful in its next installations of their franchise.
I’m very interested in the Armory System, sounds very cool to be able to change your “job” on the fly by merely changing your weapon, making your hard learned skills available whenever needed, rather than only when you had a job set as your main skill. I had always thought that some kind of option should have been available, especially when it came to party wipes that occur so far from a mog house or a nomad moogle.
Also interesting to me is the seemingly integrated nature of the crafting system. Only time will tell.
Here are a few links if you are interested in looking it up.
