I've said it before, and I'll say it again - Beacon is a joke.  They need a catchy slogan, like "Do you LOVE wiping?  Do you HATE experience points?  Wish you could level down to 1?  Join Beacon!  We have an extensive "wipe resume," including (but not limited to) Dynamis - Bastok, Dynamis - San d'Oria, Bubbly Bernie, and now introducing - Einherjar!  Just look at our screenshots - our credentials speak for themselves!  We'll get you killed more times than you can count, brag about how high on pot we are while playing, and if you're lucky, you might walk away with an utterly useless piece of AF2 after a few months of dedicated service!"

I'm sure some Beacon member will read this and come tell me what an asshole I am... killing time while waiting on a raise, no doubt.

That aside, let's see...
- Obtained "King's Justice" Mythic WS for my WAR.
- Re-obtained "Wings of Integrity" Campaign Medal.

Alright, I'll delete my character and make the jump. Do you guys think I should be something else other than a warrior? And what do you suggest that be?

Like Dennis said above, it all depends on what kind of role you enjoy in the game. 

The main roles are damage dealer (DRG, DRK, MNK, RNG, SAM, THF, WAR), tank (PLD, NIN), support (BRD, COR), and mage (WHM, BLM, RDM, SMN, SCH).  The remaining jobs are somewhat "hybrids" of those main roles... DNC, for instance, is pretty much a healer, but their healing abilities require them to melee.  BLU is sort of a "battle mage" in that they melee AND cast spells.  And then there are jobs like BST and PUP who fall under the "damage dealer" umbrella, but because they rely on pets, they tend to solo rather than seek parties.

Each job tends to "bloom" a little bit at Level 30, and again at Level 60.  So until you hit that first landmark, you probably won't have a good sense of the pros/cons of each job.  My suggestion would be to find something that you enjoy *right now* and run with it.  If that's WAR, then great, level WAR.  Even if you abandon the job later on, WAR is a great subjob that literally half the jobs in the game can benefit from.

Got a new toy today - MY FIRST MYTHIC WS!



Went to The Sanctuary of Zi'tah to play around with it...



...and noticed something unusual in the background:



WTF?  My video card, although sexy, is smoking crack.

My Nyzul Isle semi-static is now a full-fledged "static," 6/6 members.  We hit Floor 100 on my Runic Disc last night - I got a Runic Key and a new toy:



I now have Sturdy Axe (WAR), Quicksilver (COR), and Vorpal Blade (RDM) - Mythic Weapons for 3/5 of my 75s.  Here's hoping for a Denali Bonnet and some Brave Blades + Windslicers tomorrow night.

Came across it this morning.  Good read for everyone (especially you, Tonelico!) I think. ;)

In other news, I had a mini-lootwhoring spree this morning:
- 8 Ancient Beastcoins
- Argyro Rivet (WAR AF+1, NW Apollyon)
- Cardinal Cloth (RDM AF+1, NW Apollyon)
- Oracle's Gloves (ZNM Tier 3, Armed Gears)

75 PLD.  That's my fifth (and final, most likely) 75.  I have the best damage dealing jobs (WAR and BLM), the best soloing job (RDM), the best tanking job (PLD), and the most in-demand support job (COR) in my roster now, so I'm versatile enough to have a role in... well, anything.  Which was my goal.

Also attained Brass Wings of Service tonight in Campaign, and nabbed 3 Assault clears, making me 20/50.  I want Captain! D:

I came RDM/DRK for Chainspell Stun.  Eald'narche was a clean kill, although shit hit the fan a lil' when Kam'lanaut decided to Triple Attack with his TP moves.  He cast Silencega, then hit us with Light Blade, Great Wheel, and another Great Wheel.  Took out the BLU, DRK, and RNG pretty fast.  But Valesti's PLD stood firm and tanked our way to victory.

Apocalypse Nigh is an epic battle.  

Title: Breaker of the Chains
Obtained: Ethereal Earring

Been working on PLD (Level 73) and DNC (Level 19) pretty hardcore for the past week.  I'm shooting for Level 75 on the former and Level 37 on the latter before August 25th, the day when "summer break" in my Linkshell comes to an end.

Been using my Assault Tags to slowly work towards Captain.  I have a somewhat laughable 16/50 clears at the moment, but was finally promoted to Second Lieutenant and immediately ran to the guard for my Perdu Voulge.  In Campaign, I'm up to the Holyknight Emblem and am hoping I can squeeze out 4 more promotions before the September version update.
