So I logged in last night with the immediate intention of trying to get my Retainer in the Uldah Market Wards, figuring that maybe,…. just maybe I could get her in there somewhere, but sadly I ether wasn’t quick enough or they didn’t actually reset the area.
While in Ul’dah though, I met up with Pico Man and crafted his newly added level 50 Carpenter’s Hood. Its cool looking! I should have taken a screenshot but forgot. After that him and a few others from our LS were heading out to try the new “To Kill a Raven” fight, and sadly they already had a full party, so I headed out to pick up an ingredient to craft my own newly added level 50 Weaver’s Gibus (Thank you Pico!). It didn’t match up well with my current working weaving gear, so I had to make myself a Felt Bliaud to model it properly.. lol. Not sure if I’m a huge fan of how it looks… it’s kind of silly. I don’t like the little “cap-looking” part of the hat, otherwise it would be fine but oh well. worst case I can always hide it, it has some nice stats, but I can’t remember what it was so I’ll have to post it later.
I was kind of hoping that for the females it would be one of those fancy hats with the veils.. but ah well. Its a fun conversation piece… lol 🙂
After that I headed out to get the cut scenes done for the “To Kill a Raven”, and they were pretty awesome! I think I may have to go back and watch them again, as I was so excited and was listening on everyone else’s excitement on mumble too.. lol. Headed back to Gridania and ran into Nicos Gilmaster and Merikosum Neaman, so we started putting together a party when we heard someone else saying they needed 4 more, so we disbanded and joined them. Fun enough, they had Andrien (one of our other LS members) already in their party as well.
Server was crazy congested, but we finally got in and was able to try three times before people had to go. The first attempt we lasted better than I thought, and almost made it to the second phase of the fight. Second attempt, we made it to the second phase and did pretty well until he did ability that I don’t even remember what it was called, but it took out most of us, and he picked off the last two remaining survivors. Last attempt we didn’t get the meteor down in time and it took us out and by that time it was late and both Merik and I had to go.
Here are some pictures though!
I absolutely love this battlefield. Its up in the sky, you have to take an airship called “The Enterprise” (LOL) up to get to it, and Dalamud is absolutely huge! My pictures don’t give the area justice.
No Summer event was anywhere to be seen yet, so hopefully in the next few days.. I want my blue Yukata!
