Things seemed pretty quiet yesterday, so I figured I’d take some time to skill up on weaver. I had stock piled a few stacks of hempen yarn, so I worked through synthesizing some of it up into undyed hempen cloth. I made a hempen cowl, and asked the people around me if anyone wanted it for free. A nice Miquo’te took me up on the offer, and I ended up throwing in a pair of gloves, some random pants, and a copper choker. (I’ve been crafting a lot.. LOL!) I also invited them to our Linkshell, as they were still pretty new to the game, and seemed genuinely nice.
This morning in sorting through my inventory yet again, I came across a rat pelt left over from a recent trip to Limsa Lominsa. The other day I had been working on Leatherwork, and had received as a reward, the recipe for Rat Fur Shoulder Guards. I looked up the recipe and made them.
I looked up what could be made with them, and found that a hempen robe uses it, and I’ve kind of wanted one for aesthetic reasons.. lol. I figured if I was going to make one, I’d at least make one the color that I wanted, so I made a trip to Ul’dah to purchase 9 lead-grey hempen cloths. After I did, I made each piece, and here is my end result.
Now my THM can kind of look like a proper blackmage.. hehe.
I seem to have a thing for grey.. lol, but would be an example of why…
Yikes.. Yellow definitely isn’t my color… Hahahaha
I had gotten that Yellow Cotton Tunic off of a levequest, but it’s stats were still lower than my Hempen Cowl (grey), even though it was made out of the next tier fabric, so I sold it shortly after this picture.
I’ve been spending time on all the crafting classes trying to get them all up to 10. I’ve decided that I don’t want to own anything I can’t repair myself. So that means I’ve got some work ahead of me. Its all good though as It allows me something to do while Blindrage is off playing Fallout New Vegas… lol ^^
