New Banner… Do you like it? ^^
Last few weeks has been a mixture of a lot of different things. Excitement over the coming of Patch 2.2 promises to bring a host of fun new toys. One of the one that I’m actually surprised to find myself excited about is the Vanity ~aka~ Glamour System. I’ve been a bit of a collector of things. My one retainer is stock full of armor & weapons that I’m not using… but that I either #1 like the looks of, #2 Has sentimental value or #3 that I’m simply hanging onto so I can do a mass turn in for Grand Company seals when the need arises. The next few patches has the promise of helping me to have function for this excess of items.. (hoarder tendencies… I know.. but knowing is half the battle right?).
Patch 2.3 will bring new Grand Company ranks that will likely need “X” amt of seals and the mass turn in will begin… But for now…
Patch 2.2 will bring to light the Glamour system that will allow me to make use of those pieces that I adore, but that are too low to sensibly wear anymore. Pieces like:
My Onion set.. that I’ll have to get a picture of later. Its always pretty smart looking and has become my default level 1 crafting gear.. Or…
The Dated Grey Hempen set that was the very first gear I made myself in 1.0. Sentimental only, its not outstandingly beautiful, special to me none-the-less..
My felt bliaud that I also made for myself in 1.0. I dyed it the other day, and I still think its rather cute… and the peach blossom earrings I donned in 1.0.. they may be making a comeback ^^
This book that I got as a drop from Stone Vigil — I love how it looks.. even more than the scholar relic.. so the scholar relic might actually get a book cover treatment…
And… I have 5 behemoth horns at my disposal that are not yet spent.. I’m tempted to buy this mask for my summoner…as I like it a tad more than the orange horn…
In other thoughts..
Last week we did a few other things.. Cutie had wanted to go enter a Turn 5 just for the purpose of at least seeing Twintania once before the patch. So after some random community members had done all the Coil tries we were going to for the week, he got a few of us together to take him and Nicos, and another member in so they could see Twintania for the first time.
We did a few Treasure Maps… still trying to earn enough gil for our house.
Ran another Stone Vigil with Bandit Queen (Mini)…on her scholar.
She got level 50 with that run!
Accompanied Sunny into a few dungeons just to give him entrance, so he could practice some solo-ing.
Here’s Me, Rainie, and Jynx, being good little team members and hiding out while he worked on it. 🙂
