So I’m sorry off the bat, because I have been pretty busy just playing, and not writing much of anything. Wanted to give some progress reports though, as everyone has actually been pretty busy!
First off! Congrats to Merik and Nicos for getting their Titan wins and relics! Congrats to Nicos for his new Titan axe! Congrats to Lucife, Ladykria, Rainie, Sunny, and the rest of their group for beating Coil Turn 4! Daily there are Distant World members getting relics and accomplishing great things! Definitely puts into perspective that the “data center” isn’t really as much of an issue as some had suspected it would be. Do you have to work at things – Yes! I would hope so….. is being on a non-local data center mean you can’t accomplish things – Absolutely not! The only thing that stops you is your own mentality!
Ok preaching over haha… Here has been what I’ve been working on the last month!
#1 Complete full set of Bard Darklight acquired! 🙂
#2 Was able to +1 my Artemis Bow! Yay! so shiny and pretty!
#3 Working on Whitemage darklight! All that’s needed to complete it now is getting the belt and feet pieces!
#4 A relic reborn – Thyrus – now just needing the final Titan win. 🙂
#5 Arcanist level 30 – Scholar and Summoner now open! Yay! (Scholar is next serious job to be played)
#6 Alpine War Jacket is finally Mine!!!! – (there is a back story to why that makes me so very happy! haha – Acquired from one of the MANY runs of Wanderer’s Palace.)
#7 Paladin finished off – now level 50! ^^ – Now able to equip my Mog sword from 1.0 and get rid of all old swords! Yay for inventory space!
#8 Monk @ 48 (should finish it off as well so I can equip my monk mog weapon & gryphonskin pieces that I’ve loved since 1.0 ( gryphonskin had been for my archer, but the existing ones I had turned into monk only when 2.0 launched.. lol)
We had a fun night last night taking members of Distant World into Titan with the sole purpose of just getting people used to dodging attacks. No pressure to win, no rage-quitting Duty Finder members who can’t handle it if they don’t win on the 1st or 2nd attempt. It was actually a lot of fun. I know that I definitely need the practice on running that one on whm, as the medica timing is important, and I don’t yet have it down (the two Titan attempts on whm I’ve ran hasn’t made me a pro at it yet.. lol). Sometimes I’d try to pre-cast (like instructed) and I’d cast slightly too early, or too late and then end up playing catch up with the medica. I was finding it far easier on whm to dodge things though than I found it on bard. I just need to watch and memorize a video of Lucife Xavikon I think.. he’s the most amazing whm I know! ^^
After that practice run, on a whim notion, we invited 6 whm’s to go Holy Titan! haha… That was really fun… even though we didn’t win. I was on cleric stance for that run so only throwing out occasional heals. The funny thing is I definitely believe it could be done! When we had everyone alive and keeping DoT’s on Titan his health dropped rather quickly. I think if people were comfortable with the fight, it would be kind of fun to do this again! ^^
On Halloween we did costumed Haukke Manor runs where we haunted its inhabitants! Here is my video on it, and here is Merik’s run! We ended up doing 4 simultaneous runs, and 6 runs in total so members that wanted to participate could. ^^
