So, I actually participated in the “Feast of Swords” Event – for information on how to do it check it out at: http://wiki.ffxiclopedia.org/Feast_of_Swords_2007/Guide
I ended up with the Wooden, Lotus Katana, and Shinai, as well as the Kingdom Stables Collar (10 Teleports to the San d’Oria Chocobo Stables) . I would like to see if I could get to could get the Federation (Windurst) and the Republic (Bastok) one as well. I went out to Windurst twice, however no one was out there doing the event, so I think if I want them, I’m going to have to see if I can round up some friends to go with me.
I partied in the dunes with Kauri (DRK) & Kundala (RNG) & Velsol (MNK or SAM), and ended up getting my PLD to 18. It was a total pick up party, no real healer, just a bard, and me with cures, but it was very cool.
Saturday we teamed up with Pitbull, our Galka friend that hasn’t been on for awhile, in hopes of getting him up to 30 so he can pick up dark knight because that is his goal. Once he gets caught up, He is going to work with Blindrage’s PLD, and my Bard.
We also did two different Kazham Key runs that day, one for Blindrage, and then later on in the day for Talishe and Pitbull. On our way to Mhaura, we came across the Sea Horror, not realizing at first that it was an NM. We figured it out when it actually aggro’d Kinkykitty who was on her 66 rdm. She started fighting it, and there was little damage happening, so I threw on Reraise, and began trying to keep her healed as well as clubbing away at it. We ended up getting it down to 1/2 its life, when it did Hundred Fists and defeated Kinkykitty, then me, then found its way to Blindrage and took him out as well. I had reraise up, but couldn’t take it, as the creature didn’t despawn. Once we got to Mhaura, we were thrown to the docks, where I guess because we had zoned, my reraise option no longer was available.. ><. Luckily the second trip on the boat had no Sea Horror ‘s to deal with.
Sunday morning, Kauri helped Pittbull get a little closer to his goal, and in the process came across two different Orc NM’s. They were: http://wiki.ffxiclopedia.org/Meteormauler_Zhagtegg , and http://wiki.ffxiclopedia.org/Tigerbane_Bakdak . Kauri did end up obtaining the Tigerhunter axe from the Tigerbane Bakdak
Sunday the static started off rocky, mostly because of some confusion with timezones etc.. (sorry guys) but we ended up working on our 20’s static instead of our 60’s this week. I ended up with a 25 Pup, and the next time we party on these jobs, it most likely will be in Kazham. Its been awhile since I’ve been there.
After Static was over, Kinkykitty helped Jedafu, Velsol and I go try and learn a few Blue magic spells in Ghelsba Outpost, and Fort Ghelsba. All three of us ended up learning blastbomb, and Velsol was able to learn Blood Drain. I already had it. Blu is fun, its just really time consuming. I think the next spell I need to go after is Bludgeon and Healing Breeze.
