Meh, CoP in its current state is pathetically easy.  Remember all the nerfs?

- Exp loss was removed.

- Exp gain was introduced, 1000-2000 depending on the battle's difficulty, to provide players an incentive to help out their friends.

- Level Sync and Scaling Gear eliminated the need to carry around 4 extra sets for the 30/40/50/60 capped battles.

- CCB Polymer Pumps, Shu'Meyo Salts, Yellow Liquids etc. can be purchased on the AH.

Compared to 2004-2005 when most players were wrestling w/ CoP, it's a cake walk - and everyone, their grandmother, and their grandmother's dog has a Rajas/Tamas Ring at this point, if not an Ethereal/Magnetic Earring from Apocalypse Nigh to boot.  Grab a few friends and apply a bit of elbow grease, and anyone can have sea access in a week or two tops.  It's all about motivation.

If I had to rank plots (thus far) in FFXI, it would look like this (best to worst):

1. CoP
2. WotG (may move up or down depending on how it continues)
3. ToAU
4. RoZ
5. Original missions (ranks 1 - 6, Shadow Lord stuff).

I agree completely.

don't hate man pup is pretty sweet.

What makes it pretty sweet?  If you can tell me one thing PUP does better - or hell, even equal to - any of the other classes at endgame, I will personally take it to 75.  PUP Attachments are ridiculously expensive, they have a limited selection of good gear (as DRG did for many years), they have a C in their main Combat Skill, H2H.  The other "pet job," BST, has an A- in Axe Skill and a B- in Scythe Skill...  so what's up w/ PUP?

...and by "a VALOR SURCOAT and a DUELIST'S CHAPEAU," I really mean "a Pantin Taj."  lolPUP.

And here I was getting all excited for you. :P

FFXI dev team loves to do this. One of the most common items to drop in the past for Dynamis seemed to be BST AF2. Now, to trump it, PUP is in its way. I've found PUP drops more often than BLU or COR combined, especially in Xarc. :(



WHM, SAM, WAR, PUP, and 2 100s.  It was more like Dynamis - Failcabard, haha.
22  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XI - Journal! on: January 03, 2009, 02:40:41 PM
Today, in Dynamis - Xarcabard, I got a VALOR SURCOAT and a DUELIST'S CHAPEAU.

After finally finishing the latest set of WOTG Missions, all I have to say is...



...Lady Lilith {I'm interested.}

I can think of a decent amount of RPGs that have had good OSTs.

Valkyrie Profile 2:Silmeria, Persona 3+4 ... Digital Devil Saga 1+2,Dragon Quest VIII,Devil Summoner:Raidou Kuzunoha.

\m/

Breath Of Fire:Dragon Quarter

...Pso'Xja. Can anyone tell me how the hell to pronounce that?

Remove the "P" and the "X."  "So Ja."  That's how it's written in Katakana in the JP Version.  Also, AELIANA'S FAVORITE CUTSCENE EVAR was pretty good, eh?  That's the best moment in the entire game, across every expansion, I swear. 

In other news, I got some more lolAF2 too: Valor Gauntlets and Monster Trousers.  Which makes my AF2 totals:
PLD - 3, MNK - 2, BST - 1, COR - 1, NIN - 1

Congratulations man.

I still remember back when you were Paiku, and you gave Aeliana #1 your Temple Knight Army Shield as a farewell present.  Then I followed in your footsteps and quit too, at 62 PLD.  Came back a year later and made Aeliana #2 (my current character), but went RDM this time instead of PLD, because I was always amazed at how fast RDMs got invites and I wanted to solo shit like Avesta, haha.  And the rest, as they say, is history.

Neither.
28  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: What are some RPGs where you play as the Villain? on: December 27, 2008, 03:28:34 PM
Chrono Cross, but not the entire time.
29  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Last Remnant on: December 27, 2008, 12:57:39 AM
Having played this now the presentation comes off as really bad. Characters are overly animated in cutscenes, and Rush Sykes is one of the most obnoxious characters I've seen. If he's what Japan would want then it's little wonder JRPGs have such shitty leads. :P

WELL IN MY OPINION, RUSH SYKES IS THE DEEPEST AND MOST WELL-DEVELOPED RPG CHARACTER IN THE HISTORY OF THE GAME INDUSTRY. =^.^=

And Blace busts out his Limit Break - the "opinion" card.

I could say that in my opinion, McDonalds is a fine restaurant and serves nothing but the highest quality food, and it is the paragon of health and nutrition.  I'd also be completely wrong.  BUT HAY, THAT'S OK, IT'S MY OPINION RITE? =^.^=

You wouldn't be completely wrong if that's what you thought, but that's just my opinion :P

Glad we're in agreement.  Go grab yourself a nice greasy Big Mac and work on your 5th run through The Last Remnant then, dork. :P

ANYWAY, regarding the "it's like every other Level 5 RPG" comment in the review, this personally doesn't deter me from Shirokishi Monogatari.  I mean, heck, this is the website which has more Tales fans than any other corner of the internet, and if one Tales game isn't the shining example of "a game like every other game in its series," then I don't know what is.  Developers have a certain style, and that style tends to manifest itself inevitably... my only concern is that I don't know how much I dig Level 5's style.  They're extremely hit-or-miss to me.  DQ8 was great, but that was constructed under the watchful eye of Square Enix.  And I never cared much for Dark Cloud and its sequel, nor Rogue Galaxy.  So, we'll see I suppose.
