So pumped up for this! Basic details on Shiva posted today and I’ve started working on my upcoming “Unlocking 2.4 Content – Where to Start!” post.. Trying to decide if I should post it early and then just update it as we get more info, or just wait and post it when its all done? What do you think? Decisions… Decisions.
I’m so excited to have some new dungeons to run. I run dungeons so much, it becomes mechanical to the point that if I do dungeons after work, it makes me tired and I feel half asleep while I’m doing them.. Can’t wait for some new dungeons to explore and make me have to pay attention.
This week so far has been fun when I’ve been able to get on. I’ve been helping people with a lot of different things, which adds spice to life and makes things more diverse and fun. Variety seems to brighten my mood for sure. Ran Moogle EX, helping people with story, and their progression becomes a bit more fun then dailies and trying to get people together for Coil.
Had a lot of fun last night doing Westwind, Castrum Meridium (x2) and Praetorium (x2) for some FC members who needed it for their story. Love helping people get those done. I even solo tanked in one of the runs… yeah.. I know… I don’t tank, but we needed one and I did gave out the disclaimer at the start. So they were well aware that I never really tank, that they were more geared than I am, and so pulling off of me was nothing to actually feel good about or be proud of, because it would be easy to do.. lol.
Went well though. Gear has really made that instance far different than when I ran it for myself with everyone in AF.. lol. I apparently didn’t take pictures of the run I’d tanked.. lol.. might have been busy I guess.. haha… Here is Pierce and I performing in spotlight while during a later run while waiting for cut scenes to complete.. ^^
Someone in mumble was talking about commendations, and so I actually checked mine and I had 499! Went and did a dungeon and got my last commendation so now I have my gold magitek mount. 🙂
A few of us took a semi-goodbye screenshot with a good friend that is leaving the server on their main character.. will miss you, super sad to see you go, but hopefully its not forever.
Got to see the Minflayer again! He’s pretty cool looking. 🙂
I have a new apple of my eye.. I broke down and bought myself a treat. Say hello to my sweet baby girl!
I wanted one so badly, and when I realized I had done enough dungeons to afford one, I broke down and got one.. she’s so adorable! I’ve always had a thing for Mandragora’s even from my FFXI days. Here she is dancing for me.. she’s happy to have a home! 🙂
So for those who are aware, our FC is going to be hosting a server-wide event on October 25th called
It’s in an effort to encourage more community action on our server. We have plenty of English speakers on Masamune, but for some reason we all seem to stay to ourselves. I often hear complaints of there never being any English party finder groups on our server, yet I know we have some decently active, and decently sized English FC’s on our server.. So why aren’t there? Its because we don’t make them. We often wait to join someone elses’s group, instead of just making one. Its just a matter of getting us English to remember that we can initiate things too! “JP Only” wouldn’t be the only thing we’d see in PF, if we used PF more often… if we spoke up and communicated when we wanted to do content. We’d have more luck if we opened up and invited the whole community do go do things.
I know many are wanting to do content, so this is hopefully going to be a nice “Break the Ice” type thing to get people actively setting up (especially English hosted) Party Finder Groups on our server. To get out there and mingle, and meet others and have fun experiences!
Costumes, Mount Parade, Scavenger Hunt, Games and Prizes, lots of fun.
Vinyl from our FC has donated a Mandragora Queen, and another one of the newer minions to be given away as one of the prizes.
Niqote from the Official Forums has offered to draw a Chibi of someones character as a reward for one of the events as well. I think thats pretty awesome!
Anyone else that has any awards they are willing to donate would be greatly appreciated! Hopefully we can get lots of different FC’s to come and participate.
