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.

a heart attack. He was 47


Too easy.

Edit: Oh yeah, sad day, wishes go out to families and such.

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.

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!

The restrictions page is the best part.

Endangered or regulated species
Plants, animals, or other organisms (including product derivatives) in danger of extinction or whose trade is otherwise regulated by law

Lottery tickets, sports bets, memberships/ enrollment in online gambling sites, and related content

Uh, what?

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.
1693  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.

Best Film: Frost/Nixon, if you think it counts. If not...I guess TDK (Pretty close race with Iron Man though).

Biggest disappointments: IJ4, Quantum of Solace

Worst movie: Anything made by Freidberg and Seltzer. But since a dog turd would be a better movie than any of those, I suppose I'll put Over Her Dead Body.
