Woke up early on Patch Day 2/28/17 and finished out the last leg of my relic quest.
Unlocked The Proto-Ultima Dun Scaith fight. This I actually thought was kind of cute. I kind of wish they would go back and throw in alternative fights in older content to jazz it up a bit.
Its kind of funny but the reception I heard on this was very different between servers. On Masamune, people seemed happy for the slight change up. Especially since that old succubus fight was pretty boring, and it changed the weekly grind a little allowing for some to further catch up to those who need it.
On the NA server my alt is on though people seemed more fully disappointed. I honestly didn’t see the issue. This is that middle time that comes up always. It would not make sense to throw something as meaningful as a full on encounter with him right now… when it is set to be replaced so very soon… but that is just my opinion. Plus my understanding is that this is not our last meeting with that mob.
Other thing I did this week was participated in the Little Ladies’ Day event, which I was glad to have it be less grindy than last years event. That of course prompted some screenshot taking in the new gear. Here is one of my favorites:
I was tempted to crop it and make it the new background for my blog, but I do really still like the existing banner… I’m debating.
Other than that, I haven’t been too focused.. though I’m looking for a new video project. Nicos was helping me find some possible songs last night while we did fates and farmed his aetheric condensation (light 2.0) for his relic.
I’m just really wanting some creative project to be excited about. I kinda need the energy of something like that.
Really I suppose I should work on not being so disappointed and get around to fixing my macro page on this site again. Its just frustrating that WordPress removed so much because of their formatting changes. I’m going to have to find a way to be more creative to show them. When I type anything in the normal < > brackets… it gets removed by WordPress once I hit save. 😦 I will fix the page, I just have to find a better solution that won’t be affected by future back end changes in WordPress.
On a bright side, we registered a domain and moved our FC Distant World’s site. It is now found at http://www.distantworld.net
We’re still working on it, but it is shaping up. 🙂 Its also a WordPress based site, except it is hosted separate and able to have plugins which is very cool to play around with. One of our amazing community members “Shadowtricks” aka Lilly Calasur has been instrumental in getting it set up. The above picture was created for our FC by Redmomo (discord name)
In other news a few weeks back now I ended up grinding out 99 Zurvan tokens trying to get the bird from there. I stopped running it, since at this point I’ll have enough tokens to buy it once they add the option to trade for it in the game. I don’t want those 99 wins to be for nothing, so I’m not farming it anymore… lol.
Other than that.. just plugging along ^^
