Spent the weekend mostly working on crafting. My Weaver is now level 13. Blindrage made my new hat.. like it? I do! 🙂
In the process I figured this out though –
* Keep your tools up-to-date and in good shape.
if you start breaking things you’ve previously had success on, it may be time to upgrade your crafting tools. I think once you hit level 10, its almost mandatory that you upgrade. I was breaking easy things left and right and couldn’t figure out what was wrong. Blindrage made me a new bronze needle, and then I was good to go again.
I looked it up on http://ffxiv.yg.com/
Here is a note for myself on tools upgrade schedule, looks like I’m already behind
22 Iron Needle
Blindrage Skywalker had gotten new top armor and his hempen tights looked dingy, so I ran to Ul’dah to see about making us both some Hempen Chausses (Grey), as they seemed pretty easy to make. The Weaving Guild is located there, so I have to make frequent stops over there. On this particular night, I visited the Weaving guild, purchased the grey hempen cloth needed, and synthed two pairs of Hempen Chausses (Grey). As I was running out there, I came upon a miqo’te with a very familiar name. I sent a /tell to verify my suspicions. After some guiding on how to respond, I was pleasantly surprised to find that this “Kinky Kitty” was actually the same as the one on FFXI.
I’ll post a pic later…
