Blindrage and I have been playing on his PLD, and my BRD the last few nights. Its fun, although getting a little monotonous.. may need to look into finding some other Field of Valor to focus on. Has gotten us each a level or two though, so definitely can’t complain. My Bard is now level 55 and I got to use my scroll of “Mage’s Ballad II” which was kind of exciting. Its been gathering dust in my Mog House for a few years. Yay for extra space, and big Yay because its really nice to have that spell at my disposal!
With 55 I traded my Tactical Magician’s Coat for my Royal Knight’s Aketon. I really like that piece.. I bought it right before I moved to the Ifrit Server. My whm had been the only job high enough to wear it, so I didn’t wear it much. Now though it is actually a decent piece compared to what I had, so was nice to upgrade to it.
Tonight we finished out a session, then headed back to San d’Oria to sell what we had on us and try and figure out something else to do.
It was then I got /tell from an old friend Feon who had some time to kill before some event. Its pretty scarce that I actually run into anyone I remember from when I played before. I seriously mean anyone! Hardly anyone I knew still plays it seems. Kinda sad, but I know it happens as everyone grows and moves on, and honestly I will be an offender once again when ffxiv comes out and I leave to try it out. Probably wouldn’t have both accounts open at the same time.
It’s nice however, to sometimes have other people to prompt you to do some things that you feel a little overwhelmed to try on your own. Things that really should be attended to, but hard to acquire the desire to shout for help from strangers. Especially when you realize how rusty you are, and that you are still fumbling with the controls let alone finding your spells and re-setting up macros. So big thanks for the help Feon & Ishmael. Thanks for helping us get our coffer keys. 🙂 Sorry for that I was so slow and clumsy.. ^^
We found a coffer key for Blindrage’s PLD, and also one for my BRD ‘s old gauntlets. We found the coffer even and Blindrage got his paintbrush for his AF top Quest. Just looked up that quest, and its apparently quite the endeavor.. may be a little bit before we finish it out, but he does have four levels till he can wear the top anyway.. so we have a bit of time 🙂
Thanks again guys, Blindrage really appreciated the help, as did I!
