After the 4 years I’ve played FFXI off an on (really probably more like 3 years), I finally have a single job to 75!.. All in time for them to up the cap and have it not matter.. LOL!
Is ok though, least I will have a high level for a couple weeks before the update.. hehe. I was out level syncing with Blindrage in Western Altepa doing the Field of Valor when I finally reached 75 off of a Desert Beetle. Shortly after Blindrage reached level 56 too.. 🙂
Originally our level-syncing session had started out in Eastern Altepa by the Outpost working Field of Valor book. The mobs were a bit too easy for 55 PLD & 55 WHM combo, so we headed over to Western Altepa. Here is a pic from Eastern Altepa though
Last week I had been able to finally sell my summoning earring, and was able to get a little gil, so we got a few new armor pieces for Blindrage as he had been sadly lacking for awhile. Looks pretty good in his up to level armor! 🙂
The night before, I had spent some time in Campaign
I was there gaining back the exp I had lost during a mishap while level syncing in Xcarbard the night before.
We had been doing just fine level-syncing and working the Field of Valor book when we spied the Shadow Dragon. I had remembered from the past that the Shadow Dragon always gave good gil, so we ran over there and fought him without incident. He spawned back down in the bowl a few minutes later, and so grabbed him again. Gil is always welcomed right?
After we defeated the second one, a very odd thing happened. The Shadow Dragon laid sprawled out beside us defeated with his name grayed out for about 30 seconds when all of the sudden it stood back up. Its name now showing as “Biast” it quickly froze Blind, and killed him it three swats before turning and repeating the process on me.. Aw well, Now I know. Third time isn’t always the charm.. 🙂
Another fun adventure this past week was that since before I had quit last time, (over a year ago) I had left my Bard at level 54. I had the AF quests open for that AF set, so one of the days last week, Blindrage accompanied me to Crawlers Nest to see if we could find a coffer key for me. As we explored, we finally found a Crawler Hunter, (a scorpion that FFXIclopedia.org cited as dropping the coffer key). So between my 74 WHM and his 55 PLD, we defeated the monster and low and behold… it dropped the key! I’ve never had a key drop that quickly. We warped out, and Blindrage logged for the night. I decided to head back out there as BRD/DNC to see if I could find the coffer. I have to say I really appreciate the single application of sneak & invis that the Spectral Jig gives… much love .. hehe. I was able to successfully and stealthily infiltrate through the maze that is Crawler’s Nest, and find the coffer. I Recieved my Bard AF Hat.. Yippee!!
Sorry for jumping all over the timeline.. lol!
After I reached 75 on Whitemage, I changed over to Bard so that I could sport my new hat for a bit.. it was fun 🙂
Here is just a pretty shot.. 🙂
