Mage's Ballad is also really appreciated.

Ran Copperbell mines with a Tank and two archers today. Probably my hardest dungeon so far for me. The Tank never used a single flash throughout and unfortunately didn't know how to speak English either so he couldn't understand what we were saying. If I were to guess why I would say he did the first two dungeons as a DPS and switched to Tank to avoid the long DPS wait times. It is only the third dungeon so I didn't really mind as everyone is still learning their roles but it led to quite the challenge.

One of the Archers quit after him and the Tank were insta killed from the bombs explosion. Fair dues for the other archer on the team, he single handedly won the fight after that only needing me to heal him a few times. Thought we were going to have to quit with only 3 members but thankfully an arcanist arrived and all I have to say is Holy Shit! Topaz Carbuncle is an awesome Tank. Everything went great after that. We ran a bit close on the last boss but beat it first time.

It may be odd to say this but playing a healer is helping me understand how I can play other classes better when I switch back to them. The same goes when I play another role and can see what that role needs in a healer/dps/tank. I always had a high respect for tanks but this fight made me see DPS in a different light. Major Kudos to all you DPS out there. I know that your contribution to a party is often overlooked.

Another decent selection of RPGs from GOG on a 60% sale lasting until the end of the weekend

I am guessing most people who would be interested in this also get the emails about sales from GOG. Thought I would mention it though in case there were people like me who have a secondary email address for stuff like this that they do not check daily. Still devastated that I missed Torchlight being free in the summer sale.

I have heard great things about Legend of Grimrock so I might pick it up. I loved Divine Divinity even though it was equal parts cheese and bugs. Think Diablo with humour. Definitely tempted to pick up the other two.

Monster Hunter 3DS is 50% off on the eShop until the 22nd.

has anyone got 100% achievements and upgrades? I am only at around 80% at the moment, not as far as Annubis.

Did Sastoshi for the first time with a healer. The Tank was new and apologised in advance for not knowing how to draw aggro. We all said it was fine and he should just do his best. We wiped to an early mob due to too much enemies swarming us and attacking the whole team but things really picked up after that though and it was totally awesome watching the tank grow into his role. It went from me spamming cure and avoiding the enemies drawn by the aggro to rarely getting aggro from healing and the tank was quick to take it from me once I pushed it away with fluid aura or ran towards him. The two DPS were great too. Denn went perfectly with no casualties.

By far the most fun I have had in a party created from Duty Finder. I have been in more skilled teams but this had that fun aspect you have when you party with friends or people from your FC. Hopefully Tam Tara Deepcroft will go as well.

Decided to try out Conjurer and am having a great time. It is a lot more enjoyable than I would have guessed. Still learning the ropes but things are going well so far. Only tried low level stuff so mistakes are not disastrous to the party. The short wait time for duty finder is awesome. Most people are still learning at these guildleve levels so it is giving me plenty of experience in various scenarios. Gaining enmity when enemy reinforcements arrive when I am in the middle of healing is my largest problem right now but running towards the tank usually solves it. Think I have grasped the basics so going to try Sastasha later.

Breaking bad

I was actually dreading this episode after the cliffhanger from the previous one. I started off really excited for it but as the day of its airing approached, the suspense started to get to me.

The episode itself was great and is leading up to the finale nicely. Can't believe there are only two episodes left.

GOG - 60% off certain Square Enix pc games

Not a huge offer but I am interested in some of these games and thought others might also be.

Out of these I most like the Deus Ex and Thief games. I own the three Thief games but am thinking of buying the Thief Gold as I only have the standard edition which is missing a few extra missions. I have always meant to play Deus Ex but never got around to it. Might take the chance now.

Definitely getting Anachronox. Dincrest has praised the game on multiple occasions which has made me really curious about it.

Stargunner is also free at the moment. Not sure if it is going to be a permanent thing or for a limited time only. No idea what it is like but free is free.

Men in Black 3

Don't know if I would call it a good movie but I liked it a lot more than the second one. It was probably the cheesiest movie I have seen in a while but what do you expect from a MIB movie. Don't regret watching it at all.
386  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Today's News on: September 10, 2013, 04:29:11 PM

Glad to hear it. I loved the game and have a soft spot for Carpe Fulgur.

Breaking Bad

Holy shit, that was an awesome episode.
388  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: TESO Beta... on: September 08, 2013, 04:24:20 PM
That sounds great. Thanks for the information. You have hyped it up for me now.
389  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: TESO Beta... on: September 08, 2013, 03:21:24 PM
Really jealous of you. My interest in TESO fluctuates between excitement and worry. I love the idea of an online Elder Scrolls game but am worried this is an MMO with Elder Scrolls elements to it instead. Guessing you are not allowed to confirm or deny it.

Loving the game so far but I do have a few questions. would be grateful if someone could answer them.

What level should I start partying? I was told level 15 but most things still seem easily soloable. Is it just for dungeons and guildleves?

I was told Fates were the best way of getting experience but dungeons were more fun and a better way of learning how to use your class well. Not as worried about this question as I am going through the game at my own pace.

I have heard the same thing as Tenchi has said about Free Companies but what level should you try to join one? Should I join one at any time so I can ask for advice on things or wait until I am stronger and able to contribute? Mainly wondering because I am pretty new to this and haven't grasped all the mechanics yet. Thought I should get more experience with my class before joining one. From what I have seen on various forums people don't seem that tolerant of mistakes and i am pretty sure at my skill level I would be making quite a few. The few Guildleves I have done have had pretty friendly people but I am guessing it changes at higher levels when there is more at stake?

I am guessing Linkshells are at any level since you can have 8 of them rather than one free company.
