Had a really great run doing Wanderer’s Palace this past week with Kaelk, Cutie, and a sweet Lalafell named Hana Runn, who we met through Duty Finder. Hana was a Japanese player who was super geared summoner, but even more importantly she was super nice and friendly. We took the above picture at the end of the fun run and was even more excited when we left the instance and found out that she was actually on our server! I asked her if I could send her a friend request, and she replied back “If you’d be so kind” … super sweet.. always very cool to meet up with pleasant people! I really love Masamune’s Comm
During our runs, we had Seiken who is part of our FC come tank for us at one point and during that session, we learned a couple things, First being that as seen above, you can actually hide in the hallway and wait for the Tonberry to simply walk by, and he won’t see you. This was pretty cool and made me laugh when it actually worked! Far more entertaining then hiding around the corner.. 🙂
The second thing he taught us was that right before the hallway to the Pudding boss, you can actually pull the mobs in the far right hand corner up and kill them upstairs before you end up needing to head over to that lever to open the door. Made things much less stressful.
This is why I love partying with different people all the time. You learn a lot more options by being open to try things someone else’s way! 🙂
Saturday we gathered in Gridania, in the Airship area for a Hide & Seek (Gridania) Event hosted by Cutie McSnuggles. Above is Cutie, Me, Miga and Mini waiting for people to get back from searching. I sadly didn’t get any big group shots, but there was quite the group participating in this. You’d run around Gridania and couldn’t look in any one direction without seeing two or three Distant World FC members.
When we’d find someone in their hiding spot, we’d hide with them until a few more people found them. 🙂 It was a fun event! Good Job Cutie!
Did my first 2.0 Cutter’s Cry run with Sounsyy, Obisi and Cutie. I’d kind of put it off, just because I didn’t “love” the 1.0 version of Cutter’s Cry all that much, but I was very pleasantly surprised by the new version with far more interesting scenery. 🙂
Sunday early morning I had been whitelisted on Zantetsuken’s own Yelta Sumasu’s Minecraft Server, so I went and checked it out for a couple hours. I had the privilege to talk with her and I believe her sister, as well as a few of their friends while I was there. Here is a picture of the house I started building there. Its not finished, I still have to make a proper roof, but I did have fun and hope to go back and finish up the house. Was actually a nice change of pace, especially while waiting for the FFXIV 2.1 patch to drop on 12/17/13. I do like Minecraft though.. I just seem to play it in spurts.
I didn’t get a really good picture at the time, but below is us actually standing on a lamp post in Gridania. Its funny the small odd things that entertain us sometimes. You can see the others were fishing from up there as well… lol.
Obisi had put together a group for Coil practice, and Sunny who knows the fight well came along and was our Mentor. The two sessions we ended up doing was so much fun, and Sunday night, we actually ended up beating Turn 1! The team synergy was awesome, it was not stressful, only fun, and I loved it! Jynx actually streamed it. ^^
We went in and took a peek at Turn 2 since we were there. ^^
Actually we didn’t do too bad there either. I unfortunately had to leave because it was getting late, and I had work the next day, but I truly had a blast. I hope the next time I get to go in, it will be as enjoyable. 🙂 A super congratulations to Nicos who ended up with an Allagan Dragoon chest piece, and Synli who got some earrings good for monk!
