Attack of the Clones… So a few weeks back I had been at Mender’s Monday (our weekly FC/LS Crafting event) When I was all of the sudden surrounded by a bunch of “Katella Clones” which was a huge surprise to me! This was done by Mini Ninja, Cutie McSnuggles, Tigerhawk Rosebud, Rainie Iris, Nicos Gilmaster, Sunny Day, Sounsyy Mirke, and a few others.. shortly after, a “Seraphis Clonewyn” appeared too, which was pretty funny (Kaelk).
This past week, prior to Christmas, we actually got the opportunity to introduce SamboNZ to all of these characters and had some fun with him. He ended up doing an impromptu livestream, it was pretty funny. 🙂
We helped SamboNZ open up the barber and he was able to get the “Lightning” hairstyle. Ended up looking pretty cute. 🙂
I had ran Crystal tower a few times this week.I had been really wanting the healer robe, and had tried a few times for it, but it wasn’t in the cards. By the end of the week, I still hadn’t gotten anything from Crystal Tower, So when some people in FC decided to go in, the healer pants dropped, and since it wasn’t something that people said they saw drop too often, I went ahead and needed on them, as they are better than my darklight.
We went ahead and went in one more time to help some cap their myth, and this time we took Miga (whm) and Pico Man (blm) in for their first time. It was fun! 🙂 Funny enough, the robe I’d been watching for all week, ended up dropping that time, and since I had just gotten the pants, I couldn’t roll for them, but it was very good to see Miga end up with it at least. He deserved it, he did a great job for his first run. ^^
In doing the daily’s for the sylphs and Amalj’aa, I ended up getting the Rank 2 “Recognized” status for both beastman, as well as getting my scholar to level 50! 🙂
I ran around and did the quests…. put on my scholar AF, took one picture…..
and then immediately put it in the armoire. Its kinda sad I suppose, but I have a lot of better healer gear, so I really don’t need the scholar AF at all. It was just for completion sake that I picked it up I guess.
Ended up doing a pick up group run of Ultima Hard with Rainie and Nicos. We didn’t get the win, but it was fun anyway, and we stuck around after everyone left and took pictures. We asked Ultima if he’d come be our guard dog for when we get the FC house… he didn’t take to kindly to the question.. 😛
Rainie, Nicos, Merik, and I then tried out Haukke Manor Hard, and Copperbell Hard. They were pretty fun too!
Merik actually recorded the Haukke Manor Run
From there we spent a bit of time doing 8-man treasure maps….
Merik recorded that as well!
All the treasure hunting had actually left us with some ingredients and I was able to give Sunny Day some mats and he made me a warm winter coat and boots! Thanks Sunny! I dyed mine the Marsh Green color that you get from the Sylphic Vendor, a color which I’m really liking!
He made one for a few people in that sitting, here is Sunny Day, Rainie Iris, and I, all sporting our winter coats!
On a whim, Pico Man was trying out PVP. Now I don’t have much care for PVP, but I had said I’d try it at least once, so I did with Mini Ninja, Pico Man, and Kaelk, (as well as some other random tanks we didn’t know). Surprisingly I ended up having fun, though I think it had more to do with the company I kept rather than the PVP itself, haha.. but it was alright actually. I actually appreciate that SE works to make it all very anonymous and less about griefing others publicly. We did end up with 1 actual win during the session.. lol. I died quite a lot on scholar, but it was fine. Thanks Pico Man for the fun run! 🙂
Got some pretty screenshots while in between matches… ^^
We did a Moogle run… Jynx & Hiyori were shocked by the Moogles methods as one of them had abruptly taken out poor Merik!
Had a lot of fun treasure hunting, and hoping to do more in the future. It even spurred me to work on my level 30 botanist so that I could start picking up the maps from gathering them myself. My Botanist reached level 50 by the end of the weekend ^^
