Nyzul Climb continues slowly, having a bit of trouble finding people to advance with at this point.

Got some random stuff from Dynamis runs.

I lost twice in a row on Mirage Jubbah, which had only 3 people lotting it. But later on I had that repaid, and then some...read on to find out. :P

CoP continues, and we've done 8-2 plus the first half of 8-3.

With floor 80 in my hands, I managed to finish off my Swordbreaker and unlock Mandalic Stab on my THF.

Progressing at a relatively godd speed through assaults. I'm current 27/50 on assaults.

The quests for the rank ups are pretty amusing.

Also got a few rare ??? items from assault- they're decent, but nothing amazing.

And now for the ever exciting Salvage report. But unlike before, I have actually obtained something now.

Of course that comes along with a few crappy 25 and 15 pieces.

With the 15 and 35 pieces on my hand, I see a Zhayolm shout and take it, hoping to get a 25 Usukane Head piece to finish off my first Salvage armor. While the 25 piece didn't drop, I think I got something that means a lot more in the long run:

This dropped, with no TH (I was dead) and it was on Freelot, and I won against 3 other people lotting it. Absolutely incredible- two 35 pieces in one day. I'm happy as hell.

Current progress:
Head: 15, 35 + Synth
Body: None
Hands: 35
Legs: 15 + Synth
Feet: 15 + Synth

Come on, Tsukikazu Jinpachi! :P

I'm not sure there's a lot to understand in WOTG without having done other parts of the game, while I've enjoyed CoP thoroughly and I know I would even if I didn't do RoZ (Mostly because RoZ didn't have much plot to speak of, and they were able to imply most of it in CoP- even the "twist" of

The Archduke brothers being Zilart

was not held back in CoP.)

I will agree there's plenty ot enjoy in CoP having done RoZ. My calls here, of course, are still preliminary because WOTG isn't finished yet, but it feels like WOTG is just not really going anywhere, and they're just stalling a bunch of time because they really don't have any good ideas (I got this feeling from ToAU as well).

When I say that though, that's referring to the mainline plot of the Cavernous Maws and Cait Sith. As far as each individual city plots go, the Windurst one has me really interested, while the Sandy one is hackneyed and pointless while the Bastok one bores me to tears with its pseudo-politics.

I guess I should go rewatch a lot of the CSes at some point though- I will admit I rushed through some of them the first time around.

Duping items has always been met with bans in this game, starting back with the delivery box dupe that was used many years ago.

As for story, I guess I should rewatch that section to see if there was anything in particular he was alluding to. The problem I have with WOTG is, we're about 15 missions in, and there's still not a single thing telling us what the hell is going on. It's just a bunch of characters running around doing nothing. The only real "goal" I've seen being worked on is

Lilisette trying to save her father

And that's getting stretched real thin as it is. Thing is, even the stuff with


is stuff I should be able to understand without needing to have done other parts of the game. Each expansion is supposed to stand on its own, and right now WOTG is either wasting lots of time with exposition, or just being mysterious about everything so it doesn't have to actually have anything make any sense. If I did CoP without doing RoZ, I'd still be able to understand what is going on, even though CoP is actually a really expanded backstory of RoZ.

I'm not sure if I would tie RoZ and ToAU though. ToAU had some effort put into the characters, and it started out pretty well only to conclude with such a predictable and uneventful ending. RoZ on the other hand, had is palmost nothing interesting in it.

Too easy.

Curious to what you think of WOTG's story so far. I'm unimpressed, myself. Heh.

I got some cool stuff in Dynamis as well, particularly this thing.

Gave me a drive to start leveling my BLU again. That and I'm running out of IS.

Having sea, I instantly knew what was the first thing I had to get.

We did 8-1 as well, though we're taking a break for now- hopefully we'll get started back up soon, and we'll tackle the rest of it and see that shiny ring at the end.

In sky, I responded with "Genbu" when the leader asked what god we wanted to do, so we did that, and I finally got this piece.

It's funny that I get the easiest piece last, but with this, I guess I can say I've completed my first real "endgame set".

Ranked up to Sergeant.

The Nyzul climb continues, and hopefully I'll get that Runic Disc soon so I can get those weapon skills faster. Since I'm doing Salvage I'm gonna pass on getting gear in here unless I come across a shout where I'm the only Denali lotter.

Currently 12/20 on the weapons, heh.

Been doing a decent amount of Salvage, but I still haven't gotten a single 25 or 35 Usukane piece- this place is rough with the drops, isn't it?

Kinda lame that I've seen both these guys, but not the one I actually need (Floor 2).

It's fun to be immature about the Marduk 15 set's name.
Did Arrapago for the first time and it went pretty well- unfortunately I missed out on the big prize at the end.

I did, however, get all these things in a single run, which should probably tell you something about how incredibly easy it is to get 15 pieces.

To cement my determination in getting Salvage stuff, I bought these things in preparation.

Come on, Hikazu Kabuto! :P

Those screens are fake.

Also rumor is that E3 2009 will reveal Rapture.

You'd think it'd be too cold for you to be in the mood for rape.

Are you seriously talking about the STORY in a Megaman game? =P

I'd care if winning a Golden Globe meant anything.

Having played the original 4 .Hack games, I'd say stay away from those unless you're a huge fan of .Hack (Which I am). I've always wanted to play the G.U. games, but I've never gotten them, and I dunno if I'd have time to play them- I am really interested in seeing how the story plays out since I watched the /Roots anime though.
1557  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XI - Journal! on: January 11, 2009, 12:31:48 PM

Would've gotten to floor 60 if I didn't have that genius PLD/NIN with scorpion harness making Cerberus spam Scorching Lash. Oh well.

CoP was short and simple: A fight that's pretty much always zerged to death in a couple of seconds, much like the Snoll fight from the Three Paths mission. The fight is against a surprise opponent (Well, assuming you didn't get it spoiled like most people did).

Valesti died about 10 seconds into the fight. He's still packs a wallop even though his defenses are lame.
My favorite kill style!

So after some more staring at crystal plot devices, we finally find ourselves knocked unconscious and ready to be violated by the evil Zilart.

We've finally reached sea. Whee!

We spent a bit of time getting to know the area and the types of enemies we could find around there.

No trip to sea is complete without a first failure to spot the Yovras.

Big thanks goes to everyone that helped us get this far!

I can't remember the last time I actually had a new EGM. Maybe every now and then someone would end up impulse buying one just so we'd have come can-reading material, but that's about it.
1560  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XI - Journal! on: January 07, 2009, 12:36:04 PM
You're lucky with that one- the Horn is the most sought-after piece for AF2SMN if I'm not mistaken.

Wondering how much people usually get in campaign- I do it every now and then so I can keep my THF's buffer up.

Halfway there! I'm trying to decide whether I should continue farming Nyzul after I hit floor 100, or just move onto normal assaults and do salvage. I'm very much leaning towards salvage right now.

Get myself my next rank- I'm now a corporal!

It's also fun to screw with Naja every chance the game gives you.

6-4 was probably the hardest mission I've ever done in this game, save Alexander. We barely made the time, but we were 1/1! Go team.

You can laugh at my horrible drawdistance.

I pretty much forgot to take any good pictures during the actual fight. The fight was tough and I was focusing on that rather than taking pictures- my laptop is pretty crappy, so it does skip a second or two whenever I have to take a screenshot.

Prishe raises her uh...precious gem, while I apparently doze off because meeting Bahamut is too damn boring for me.

Here's the plot twist: There's a crystal in a Final Fantasy game.

Do they really think anybody would choose the other option?

Bunch of blabbering around about nothing- I don't need the last plot point to be hammered into my head for 3 different cutscenes. :P

Tonberry was pretty easy, as long as you kited out his 2HR.

On the NM Bugard, I was stuck with someone in front of me (What are the oods?), when I asked him if we could team up, he just ignored me. I can understand not wanting to get into xp parties with NA players, but why would you not party with someone for like 10 minutes just to make the damn fight go faster? :P
He ended up dying and I let him join with me when mine was done to 20% or so.

Some more lolSalvage!

At this point I have a good idea of what I'm going for first- I go for Bhaflau 12NM runs and Silver Sea Boss runs- trying to go for Usukane Sune-Ate. The Bhaflau NMs has to be the worst part of salvage- I hate standing in the same place for 20 minutes just killing little things over and over until having not a single NM pop at all- they should really just make one NM force spawn per door, seeing as how the NM itself isn't a 100% drop rate anyway.
I got that card from a Silver Sea Remnants run with an NA group. The least I'll say is that I'm never going with any NA shout group for that ever again. The leader and members just weren't willing to listen to instructions and people didn't pass the cells- wasn't even slow at passing, they just didn't pass them, and waited until the cells filtered into inventory. If I ever do NA Salvage it'll definately be with a static. We ended up beating up to floor 3 and exited (With not a single 35 drop, of course), so people who wanted floor 4 and boss run got screwed.
