That's a good thing?

OMG DOUBLEPOSTIN

I just want people to know that the Halloween event this year is actually worth doing- at least the new part of it.



Not only is that cloak pretty cool, but if you're one of those naysayers of the events I suppose you'll have an incentive to do it since it gives items that have more than just sentimental value.



You can solo the event this year too, and it doesn't take too long. So hurry it up you crazy people.

In sky today, I saw my first WLegs drop. It's also the first time I lose at the lot- I should probably get used to this considering how many friggin' people want the thing. Combined with how rarely we do Kirin, it ain't happening. :P



With some help from the LS, we did Diabolos today. Technically the following screenshots have spoilers, but I don't think it's anything that really matters.



So anyway knowing Tenzen's sheath has the magical ability to detect that super evil energy flowing around, naturally we walk right into the room without any caution right after we see the thing shake like a dowsing rod made of vibrators.



So we meet with the most famous of Batman villains...the Manbat. Well, he's pretty famous.



So we stand there and load our weapons and supplies while he sits there whistling quietly to himself.



After we start battling, he retaliates by continuing to stand there and whistling quietly to himself.



So we beat the guy and he explains he causes nightmares for small children like Prishe by showing them his enormous chin.



Anyway, Tenzen brings out his magic armband! That should keep that nasty nightmare monster from swallowin' anyone else up!



So we return to the city and Chapter 4 begins.



Mr. Miagi tells us we're not allowed to go meet Bahamut...but hey, we're the main characters. We're supposed to do everything. God forbid they spare a few men to actually help us brave the various evil monsters and the mysterious force threatening the entire world. THIS AND MORE ON NEXT WEEK'S EPISODE.

Yeah it is.

This is a good page for basic questions like that.
1535  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XI - Journal! on: October 14, 2008, 09:36:42 AM
Yeah, costs quite a bit of gil though (At least for noobies), from 10k-30k I believe, depending on the weekly rank of the nation you wish to transfer to. You also lose your CP (Kind of, your CP is saved on each individual nation, which makes sense).
1536  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XI - Journal! on: October 13, 2008, 12:26:01 PM
*looks it up*

Oh damn, the newbie training system had a lot more effort put into it than I thought. :P

And with mission 2-3, even if I switch to Windurst, we can do it together as long as we end up going to the cutscenes in the right order. Rank 1 and 2 missions are easily soloable at your level I believe, but 2-3 gets a level 25 cap. All the missions from rank 3 to rank 6 are the same, as I recall.
1537  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XI - Journal! on: October 13, 2008, 11:02:01 AM
It would work very well in duo/trio situations I would guess, especially if you plan on keep playing with Parn or your friends. Otherwise, people on FFXI are douches when it comes to subjobs.

And I suppose if you plan on playing without raises, you can buy some Reraise Earrings/get reraise scroll with CP if you want some extra insurance.

EDIT: Speaking of all you low level guys, I assume some of you would want to go for rank 3 sometime...I might decide to change nations sometime soon so I can get in on a storyline (Most likely Windurst).
1538  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XI - Journal! on: October 13, 2008, 10:03:34 AM
I would recommend SAM/WAR out of those two, if you play MNK the best sub would still be WAR, as DNC is considered to be a solo sub. You can sub DNC all you want solo, but it doesn't have much effectiveness in party play. Also with SAM, its nice to have THF sub as an extra once you hit high levels, but you dont need to worry about that for a long time.



So my chocobo grew to adulthood, with a nice digging beak to make it look different from stable chocobos (Well actually its because I've only been working on mental stats), but nevertheless I retired her, I think I'd rather go for a more exotic color. As we speak, it is making sweet love with a black chocobo. Let's see if I get luckier next time!

Since we had ToD on Dobsonfly, we went again this afternoon (Or evening, if you're in the States). I ended up picking up this thing, though I feel a bit guilty since I ended up being the only guy to lot on it from overflowing of items in the treasure pool.



I've heard that its a great piece, but I didn't know much of what it was good for outside of WSing, so keeping in mind it would bring upon epic rage, I decided to ask the party.

Well time for a decent-sized update.

Recently did the Tour of Gustaberg quest. I had to delevel my BST from level 6 to 5, but I'm glad I got this quest done before I had no chance in hell of doing it.



My chocobo grew to adolescence, and unfortunately it has white tailfeathers, meaning it will grow to be a yellow chocobo. Snore. Someone has supplied me with a black male chococard so perhaps I can breed the two and get an interesting color next time...



Sky this weekend was pretty uneventful, we wanted to do Kirin but we didn't have enough people. I got a shiny new helm for my...uh...level 30 PLD?



Also bought myself a little treat I've wanted for quite some time now:



But the biggest thing that's been happening is CoP. I'm excited as hell because today I did the first mission advancement in CoP i've done in like, a year and a half.



'twas a really tough fight, but honestly it was a lot more annoying just to get there thanks to several members who came along to "help" us decided to randomly pop NMs without saying anything and going off to kill Carmine Dobsonflies. Of course, I suppose I can't complain since I walked away with this little gem:



CoP's story is getting real interesting, personally so far I already find it more interesting than RoZ and ToAU combined. RoZ's story was a snore, and ToAU's was filled with lots of meaningless exposition. This one seems to have more interesting characters and stories for characters we've already grown to know.



Next week: Diabolos!
1540  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XI - Journal! on: October 06, 2008, 12:27:51 PM
Well I finally started doing some stuff in CoP with Cymmina, Mercilessturtle and Levit. It's not the mission I'm on, but it was pretty fun.




Piece of cake. Mortal Ray gives you heart attacks when Cursna doesn't land the first time but it turned out fine. :P

Onward to the library!
1541  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XI - Journal! on: September 25, 2008, 07:14:53 AM
I /search you every time I get on...I can never seem to catch you on, heh.

Anyway, got MNK to level 21. Named my chocobo in true FFXI alliteration fashion- GrueneGingembre. Yeah, it's in one word like that, kind of annoying that they do that.
1542  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XI - Journal! on: September 22, 2008, 08:28:09 AM
Been working on MNK a bit recently. Level 16 atm. You should let me play with you sometime Parn. :P

 Not much to say about my chocobo, still trying to decide on a name.

I want to use my assault tags for something, they've been rotting for a while now, and it'd be nice to do some assaults, Nyzul or not- though it'd be nice to get myself a Nyzul katana so I can learn Blade: Kamu.

Then again, I don't think I want to go get 5250 WS points or whatever the hell was required.
1543  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XI - Journal! on: September 18, 2008, 01:04:05 AM
Uh oh, double post!

Well I got back into doing sky a bit last weekend, but nothing good really dropped. I'm not even going to bother posting a shot. :P

In other news, I've been doing some more laid-back stuff in game, most notably chocobo raising.




I'm surprised at how much fun I'm having with it, guess I should've done it sooner.



Aw, ain't she cute. Well anyway, I need help coming up with a name now.  There's a pretty decent amount of words to make up a name with, but I'm having a hard time deciding. I was going to do "Face Destroyer" until I realized that'd probably only be funny the few times I said it. :P
1544  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XI - Journal! on: September 11, 2008, 09:33:19 AM
The Ninja one did not transfer properly onto dat-scanning programs. It's actually supposed to be the Ninja disappear, appears for a split second with the blade sticking out, and then reappear in their battle stance. So it's like a one-hit Blade: Ku...with a WS effect that looks pretty meh in comparison.
1545  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XI - Journal! on: September 11, 2008, 12:51:55 AM
Saw them a few months ago on a JP site, RDM one is still my favorite. I just like how it actually is supposed to be something rather than just a random mish-mash of flashy lights.
