Saw Quantum of Solace. Gotta say it was a huge disappointment- I didn't expect it to be anywhere near as good as Casino Royale, since that movie had a full circle within itself, and making a continuation of that is something I didn't think was a good idea with the established characters.

My problem wasn't the fact that the movie just felt like an episode of a television series- but none of the characters had much to do in this movie, and the action scenes themselves were very shoddy. I'm tired of so many movies that shoot things so close you can't see anything. The plot was more or less nonexistant, is my main problem I guess.

That being said though, I still had lots of fun. I definately recommend it to people needing to have fun at the movies. I look forward to the next installment nonetheless, I just hope they arn't too action-brained next time.

Also- Olga Kurylenko (Or however you spell it). Love looking at her.

Hm, kinda mixed feelings about the new expansions despite them being worked on by different teams.

This next patch sounds great though.

In other news, the first mythic weapon has been completed, and it's...PUP!?

If you play MNK, you're gonna want to level WAR eventually anyway- you need Warrior as a subjob once you reach level 18 (Which is when you get a subjob).

Did some random killing in Sacrarium and I got one of these babies:


Also went for a Dynamis run with Beacon for the first time, and i got a crappy AF2 item.
Well, it was free, so I'm not complaining (If you consider using 5 friggin' charges of a reraise hairpin as "free"). :P


I took a picture of some of my sky LS peeps. This was the best picture I could get since people didn't really want to gather, I suppose. We did Kirin and got absolutely garbage drops- I'm not even gonna bother posting it.


My second chocobo has grown to adolescence...

And it's going to be black. Hmm.

Trust me, if you're only around level 10, it's not worth transfering your character. =P

By the way, server transfer IS instant. It costs $30 and it is more or less instantaneous (Which is what has led to constant abuse of it by account hackers), but like I said, not worth it if you've only played a few hours.

Pretty much all of us are on Leviathan, so you might want to come here unless you're on Alexander to play with your friends.

For you right now, you probably shouldn't have immediately ran out and started fighting stuff, though I suppose you can learn that way, it's just not as efficient probably. They added in a new introductory tutorial NPC for each nation, so you should check those out first. You'll also get some pretty nifty items that I wish I could have when I was starting out. Heh.

Selele      Windurst Woods (K-10)
Gulldago   Bastok Markets (D-11)
Alaune     Southern San d'Oria (G-10)

And yeah, potions are very rarely used in this game- they're usually only used for important instance battles, missions and such. For general adventuring and exploring you may carry some around but they're not worth relying on. I don't recall how to enable chat logging- I'm not sure if it's even possible. The game does have automatic chat logging in ...\PlayOnline\SquareEnix\FINAL FANTASY XI\TEMP, but I've never been able to figure out how to make my computer display the formatting coherently. Also if you want to keep them, you're gonna have to move it out every time, since I think they get deleted every time you log in.

The thing about MMOs is that there's never any real goals in the game aside from what you set for yourself. There's a lot to do in this game, but one of the problems FFXI has always had is that you need to be a high level to do a good amount of them, so I would focus mostly on grinding right now. You can do missions as they come along since they do have recommended levels to do them, if you're in a hurry to jump into the story- that's the crowning achievement of FFXI to me, really.

Guess I'll post a few links you can use as references later on.

The neckpieces can teleport you to the nations- it's better than the trick staff if you can get all 3. Heh.

Well, first off I got my BLU to 60.



I was pretty impressed with the party, I dunno if this is a common thing since I haven't leveled at this range in a while, but I've never gotten past chain 6 or 7 in a mid-level party like this before.



Fear my shiny new armor!



Next up is Ouryu. I thought this sounded like a pretty easy fight, at least not any harder than the last few ones...



I don't think that's a very good question to be asking, Tenzen.



So here's the all-star team.




First we wanted to take him out with Nall using Astral Flow, but that screwed up because we didn't dispel his stoneskin, and his third Aerial Blast missed because he ran out of range. We slept him and ran out of the BC, thinking we were gonna call it for the day.

I bought a few mistmelts in town before I left thinking I wouldn't end up using any of them, but we decided we'd just try to fight him straight on and bring him down with the mistmelts.




Was somewhat of a close call, but we got the job done. I leave you with this cool picture of Tenzen. He doesn't seem to be the brightest guy around- I don't think it's a good idea to be so insolent to the goddamn king of the Wyrms.

it shows you where I sleep

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.
1540  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XI - Journal! on: October 19, 2008, 03:52:58 AM
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.
1542  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).
1543  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.
1544  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).
1545  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.
