Yes, I’m still alive. I’ve been around, just haven’t really had anything to report.
So whats new….
The server we were on was powered down indefinitely, so I ended up renting a very small server for my family to play on. Its not big, and can get laggy, but its nice to be able to play with them again… single player is good for awhile, but it gets lonely.
That said, previously to getting the server created, I made a questing map of sorts in single player. I found a program that let me change it from creative to survival. Later I’ll post it up here for anyone who wants to download it. Not super impressive. basically just has you doing a few quests, and completing the collection of artifacts for a museum in a local town. I had fun building it. Its called [CTM] Dragonfly Keep.
Other than that, I’m kinda just waiting for them to hurry up and update the game with the new additions they’ve made in the snapshots. Lots of AI improvements, build height doubled, “baby villagers”, sieges between zombies and villagers… addition of jungles, cats, and a whole lot of other things that I think would be awesome on multiplayer…. now just to wait for them to get there.
So in the last month I’ve participated in two actual parties with people I didn’t know. I actually had a blast. We played in Natalan. Through just doing one or two levequests every couple days in the morning before work, and those two parties, and finishing out the main quest line (except the dungeon fights) I’m now a level 49 archer, about a quarter of the way to level 50. I’m torn between wanting to finish it out and waiting to finish it out when the jobs come. Finishing it as a bard might be fun. I’ve actually grown to really love the archer job now that they’ve added the combos, and that I seem to be able to hold my own a little bit better. I’ll kinda miss it I think once I get it capped out, it will be time to start something new.
Still haven’t done a single Ifrit, Darkhold, or Moogle fight sadly, maybe when the merge happens.
I’ve done some quests, I just finished up the level 46 “Futures Perfect” quest. That one had a great cutscene sequence. I took some pictures which now cycle between being my desktop background, I’ll have to get them uploaded at some point.
They announced server merges, so I won’t be calling Wutai home anymore… which is too bad, because I really liked that server name. But its not all bad, there will now be more players to play with during the odd hours that I login (hopefully). After the end of March, We will be part of the Masamune server.
I bought some new armor, not what is pictured in the banner above, that picture was taken around level 42. I have a few materia pieces now, (which I still need to learn how to make) and I bought a new Rainmaker’s Hat (blue) with a cute feather in it. Then I bought the Rainmaker’s tunic as well. It looks pretty sharp with the peiste skin gloves and the pants and boots that I got off of some leves and quests I did. I think they look good anyway… lol.
I’ll post a picture soon.
My husband bought me the collectors edition for FFXIII-2. Unfortunately I just really haven’t gotten very far at all with it. I’ve played about three hours in total and am totally lost as to where to go. I know everyone complained that the original was “too linear”, but I almost wish that this one was a little more linear. Its probably just me, once I figure out where I’m supposed to go, it will be fine. I went out and bought the book, so that should help.
I’ll report more on that one when I get some more time to actually play it.
