Haven't posted in a while, so I guess I'll do a bit of an update.

Was screwing around with my NPC and saw this guy floating around, so killed him for some small rewards:



Ran to Promyvion-Holla for Tactics Pearl quests as well as a shot at the last Memosphere I don't. Well, after killing about a million Cravers in Mea to get the memosphere this spire makes up for it by dropping on the first damn one I kill:



Have had some extra time lately so I decided to give another shot at Nashmeira's Plea.



This fight was not interested in proving my memory wrong of how incredibly tough this stationary mish-mash of shiny metal is.



So after two tries, our WAR has to leave. Naturally I go drag along the only WAR I know around who's bored often enough after his regular Nyzul runs that don't drop anything to give me a hand. ;)



Everyone has to leave after this, so it's now or never. Well, obviously a post with this many pictures only has one obvious ending:



Go figure the last thing he does before he croaks is kill me, though:



I have to say, this is probably the most exciting battle I've ever had in FFXI.

And what FFXI post is not complete without showing off some shiny new item?

I've never read the Sin War books (dunno what those are), but I do recall listening to some story bits in the PS version of Diablo. There's supposedly still two guys down in hell that were at the same level of Andariel and Duriel. Forgot what their names were, though. Guess a Diablo 3 could be about those guys.

This is based on my knowledge of the story from the games alone, though.

How can there ever possibly be a Diablo 3? It's been years since I beat Diablo 2 but I'm pretty sure the story was completely wrapped up in that thing. :P

Got DRK past 37, so now I can move onto leveling another sub or something.

Haven't been up to much lately, trying to grind out my Anniversary Ring so I can get that new one.

GL to everyone on Bonanza.

Those aren't dreadlocks. They're braids.


Oh, okay. Shows how much I know about hair, I guess.

Wow...I didn't know that dreads were a black thing? And black face...how very mature.


I didn't know anybody took me seriously.

Alisha, I'm pretty sure when people ask for the full picture they're going to be expecting more than just seeing your neck. =P

Now, now, Daggerstrike. We all know that dreadlocks automatically give you the power of the Super-Negro.

On NIN/DNC, I don't really need to worry about slowga. Aside from that fact that I resisted both times he did it, I have healiing waltz to fall back on. When I solo Avatars, the only real danger is from their 2HR, since they have absolutely horrid accuracy, they'll pretty much never hit me. If I get unlucky, the 2HR one-shots me. Otherwise, its a straightforward fight.

When I talked about WoW having less story, I guess I meant more of typical quests that you do. While there's a lot of "get me x item" in FFXI at times as well, they tend to try to weave a story with some series of quests. As far as I know, WoW is mostly limited to "Go get me some item so I can do this", since the main objective of the quest is to get some nice xp and money from it.

And I guess next time I'll put up reraise on an Avatar. My only worry is that I'd run out of time if I have to rest for 5 minutes before I continue fighting them (Especially Leviathan, since he has that annoying healing spring move or whatever).

Well, anyway, I got Leviathan done with the help of Shiggy and a friend of his, so I went ahead and got my Moon Bauble:



Hopefully I'll do Fenrir sometime soon.

I went on a perilous adventure with Valesti to the Phomiuna Aquaducts, since he wanted a Gaudy Harness. He could solo it if he really wanted to, but I came along to give him some TH action. Basically, he had to charm a VT/IT Oil spill and familiar it, which would give us 30 minutes to kill as many fomor as we could. On our first try, not only did Valesti fail about 12 times, we also got absolutely no drops whatsoever. So, lameness, we got pissed off and logged off right in the Aqueducts, returning 90 minutes later when Familiar was up again.

The 30 minute time limit would be enough to only get 2 Beastmaster kills in, but the drop rate is estimated about 50% with TH, so technically we should get one by law of averages.

We kill one beastmaster. Nothing.

Valesti's anger grows, but the Fomor still lies there, not crapping out a subligar like we want it to, so we went on to kill some other Fomor while we were waiting for the beastmaster to respawn:



I got myself a nice, shiny Taurus subligar, and Valesti got one of the most useless subligars I can imagine. Well, it's pretty good for RNG and COR, but I don't see him playing either one anytime soon. =P

So, the beastmaster repops, and this is our last chance. Lo' and behold:



Reality came along and tried to refresh Valesti's 2HR so we could do some more, but alas, he rolls a 3. So in celebration of getting some shiny new panties, we decided to kamikaze into the nearest NM that just spawned.





TEH END.

I put off Assault for a while, but I got a chance to do Nyzul with some newbies today, which was pretty fun.

As a result, I got my 5th new-mission clear for my rank, since it was my first time, so I went out and found the footprint pretty fast.



In addition, I've decided to start soliing avatars every now and then since my DNC sub is just about done (About 2k off 37).



So tonight I went for the last whisper I need for my Moon Bauble, Leviathan. On my way there, go figure I see this guy up, running around for a quite a while before someone came along and decided to claim him:



Funny, considering how just a few days ago there was a decent amount amount of people camping against me.

I was actually going to try to solo Leviathan last night, but when I got to the protocrystal, I realized I hadn't flagged the quest. *insert failure music* So I flagged it and went to bed, and went to solo him today. I basically keep myself in top notch shape the whole fight until they hit under 50%, which is when I brace for a huge impact.

Apparently, full HP on a Tarutaru Ninja is not always enough to endure this heavily huge-pronged assault on my ass.



Go figure the avatar I can't solo is the one the server is named after.

I dunno, I guess I don't often hit this kind of efficiency soloing at level ~30, even on BLU. Though I will admit the times I soloed on BLU, I didn't use food/juice, so that probably affected it quite a bit.

Hit max Campaign rank, and when I hit max rank in something, you KNOW its time to fucking update it:

While Dancer sucks in endgame, I'm relatively sure being able to do this solo is the definition of broken:

omg double post D:

Finished a quest today, end of the Mannequin quests thread. I can now pose my mannequin! Whee.

One thing I think WoW doesn't have, is the cinematic storytelling done in FFXI. Seeing stories like this just make you fall in love with the game all over again. Don't want to spoil it, but here's a little snippet to give you an idea:



Despite being rather predictable, it was still pretty heavy when it's actually seen.

Random screenshot of the day:

Things have been rather uneventful, but I guess I should interrupt this by posting a random NM for teh winz.



And to the victor go the spoils.

The proc rate on Retaliation is about 15% I hear, but as I recall, you still take damage with Retaliation. So it's actually exactly what it's called- you still get hit, you just hit them back.

Doesn't matter what order you level your subs in since you're going to need to level them all anyway.
