Merry Christmas all! Please have a safe and wonderful Holiday!
I was so delighted to see the decorations and to have a holiday event going on. I truly had thought it was a bit early and that they wouldn’t have time to put something together, but they figured out something simple to put in. My favorite part however is not the “event” but the ambiance given to the cities. I love all the Christmas trees and decorations. The Rudolph nosed chocobo’s made me giggle but more than anything I enjoy the snow. Funny how sometimes the simple instills joy.
The event itself was kind of frustrating at first because my initial idea was to get a group together to go farm the dormice, but sadly the lowest mob of that kind appears to be rank 35 and my hubby and I were 16 & 17 on our highest fighting classes. That and absolutely no one was interested in going out and farming them. I was really disillusioned by the whole event and my inability to participate really aside from just dropping gil to buy the mats or the already made items. That was until I learned the secret of the Twinkle boxes! So far I’ve received three and went on the journey to trade them, and ended up with a dream hat and two pairs of dream boots. I will have to keep trying for the tunic. 🙂
This morning I reached rank 21 in weaver by just processing all the cotton bolls I had on me, into yarn, then from yarn to un-dyed cotton cloth. My hubby gives me crap sometimes for keeping so many materials instead of NPC’ing them, but it gives me supplies so I can just sit and have a nice productive crafting session. I need to now do some research, because I believe there was a rank 20 class quest that I should do for this, but I’m unsure how to get it.
In other news, my hubby has been waking up early and doing a few leves with me in the mornings before work. Because of this he now has a rank 20 PUG, and I have rank 20 Conjurer! (To which I now realize I should add their class quests to my research list.)
We did a Behest last night at Camp Tranquil and had invited a few of the people standing around into our party. Those are really fun, though I died three times on my conjurer. All I did was cure & sacrifice and buff, but when a few of a random party member’s AOE attracted some other targets, the extra mobs twice decided it was time to lynch the lalafell.
After completing the behest, we switched jobs and I am now working on PUG (rank 16) and he is working on THM (rank 16). We got a few leves in before needing to logout. Overall was fun, though I wish it weren’t so quiet when I log in. I should see if there are any other social LS’s on Wutai that wouldn’t mind another member or two, else I need to figure out how to breathe life into my LS. I feel kind of odd just inviting people who already have an LS, but I should get over that since it doesn’t work the same way that it did in FFXI. It doesn’t matter so much if you have multiple LS’s because you can “hear from them all” at the same time if you want.
Would definitely like to find some people to talk to though.. 🙂
