I love exploring, Tebian. However, in recent expansions, it's been made a lot harder because of the high-level monsters, along with a tendency towards making true-sight and true-sound enemies somewhat common. This generally spells too much danger for an explorer, and I really don't want to waste oils and powders when I just want to go exploring around an area anyway.

Another rare item from assault, <mine>.


A salvage report, although you all probably already know given that most of you guys saw me at Dynamis already. :P

Somewhere, a WAR is crying.

2/5 pieces, woo. Not sure if I should go for legs or feet next, though I'm leaning towards legs simply because the feet are a bitch to get (in shout groups there's always like 3-4 people lotting it), and I might start a static soon, so if that takes off, I'm better off trying to get feet in that.

When it comes to scary movies, I'm not a fan of slasher or torture films.  So you won't see me anywhere near Texas Chainsaw Massacre or Saw.

While Saw is quite gory (It's also incredibly stupid and convoluted), as I recall The Texas Chainsaw Massacre really didn't have that much gore, despite its name. The first one didn't, anyway.

Another vote for Halloween here, definately.

Here's a couple that I love that immediately come to mind:
Silence of the Lambs
Jaws (Arguable if this is horror or not)
The Omen
The Shining
The Thing (1982)

Of course there's still the king of horror films, The Exorcist. That one's...well, you have to see it for yourself.

Joined a Limbus Shell and fought this guy:

Took a while for me to get it, but I can finally get red of that bright red harness I wear on my THF for a even gayer purple harness.


As you can see, Zhayolm Remnants is not being nice to me. I haven't gotten the Tsukikazu Jinpachi in maybe...7 or 8 runs of Zhayolm, which is pretty lame. Then of course, this had to happen on an Arrapgo run:

It was definately the piece I wanted to finish the least, but to me finishing any piece is pretty damn crazy- I remember a couple months ago I always looked at Usukane and said I'd never get any of it because it's too goddamn annoying to get. :P

This is one thing I'm glad I'm proving myself wrong on.

How is this any different than porn movies that depict the same thing? This kind of stuff has been on amazon before, and even if it wasn't, you can google it and find a million search results, and you could probably download these things for free if you looked hard enough. This has nothing to do with cleaning amazon up or whatever, it's just people trying to find another reason to complain about something because there is a drought of things to do so about.

Honestly the rape fantasy is one of the more common fantasies among men, so I don't really see what the problem is with this.
1701  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Re: My own brother disgusts me on: February 10, 2009, 03:13:41 PM
His problem really isn't that big, IMO. Are you honestly saying to give up on someone because they have a drinking problem?
1702  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Re: My own brother disgusts me on: February 10, 2009, 02:14:48 PM
Honestly he sounds a little bit like me. Well, thought-line-wise, at least.

I'm pretty overweight (I'm about 200 pounds, and probably around 6'), but I don't drink and I try to keep myself clean. One big thing people bother me about is my hair length and tidiness, though. It extends to about the center of my back at the moment. My hair gets oily really easily and it ends up making me look like a a hobo of some sort, according to some people.

I have plenty of people telling me to cut my hair (For the single reason that I have to do it to give good first impressions for my professors and teachers), but I don't really want to do that (I might get it tidied up a little soon, but I don't want to flat-out cut it off), and it really irritates me every time somebody in my family tells me to do it. If you're older than your brother, his line of thought is probably you're only a few years his senior so you have no place in giving him advice, and if you're younger he's probably thinking you're just being his bratty little sister.

Personally I think if anything, if your brother has any really close/good friends, you should try to talk to them and have them talk to your brother. Getting advice from your friends is very different from getting advice from your family, because a family generally feels that it's their place to tell you where you're doing something wrong. If a friend tells you, it means it's bad enough for them to notice it and actually speak up about it to you.

3 days, 18 hours and 59 minutes.

I'm interested in hearing Eusis's. :P

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.
1706  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XI - Journal! on: January 27, 2009, 12:02:10 AM
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.

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.
