Silverhook would be easy to solo for NINs if he didn't have -ga spells. The low MND of NIN combined with the low MND of Taru made me pretty open to spells (Blizzaga 2 took off about 500 by itself). Ice spikes didn't help much.

Really, to solo the guy I would have to have more supplies with me than I did (I only had shihei) and probably a WHM sub. NIN can solo stuff pretty well, but if they're spellcasters they can be extremely difficult, which is why WHMs can beat NINs in Ballista by spamming Diaga on them. Comes down to equipment and preparation, and I was definately not prepared to face Silverhook.

Like Shiggy, I have put off the Sand Charm quest for quite some time, so I decided to wait for pirates. After about 2 hours, i don't get any pirates, but I do indeed get into a fight with something I've wanted to solo I long time:



Indeed, Sea Horror was not that difficult, even without any debuffing whatsoever. Hundred Fists was kind of annoying, but if it got that bad it's easy to just kite the guy around.

About 5 minutes later, on the same damn boat ride, he popped again. This time an unlucky fisherman got owned before I could grab him.



It's not really unseen for Sea Horror to pop twice on the same ride, but I had my fill of Sea Horror killing for the day.

For some reason the guy couldn't leave me alone though, when the boat left dock again, he popped AGAIN.



About 2 more hours into the whole ordeal I was getting kind of annoyed, but finally pirates came along and I got my sand charm. The long wait got me more than I bargained for.



Instinctively as a Ninja, I have to solo everything. So here's the end of this story:



THE END.

Talked to Sevrine, turns out he's a bit low on cash right now so he's taking a break.

If it's really a big deal to all of you, we can move over in another LS. It might take a while, though.

I'm not the only one that can pearl, Risten can pearl too. :P

I've sent a message to Sevrine asking if he's taking a break from the game. After I get a response we can go from there.

If he is, I still see little point in moving to another LS because the other LS will be just as barren. It's not that we don't have have enough members, its that most of the Zohar/Solaris/WaterSlide/dfklsjdflskj people have been apart for a while now, and most of us have another LS to screw around with. Not everyone is going to be ready to just brush off their other LS to hang around in ThistleDown all the time.

This leads to the other problem is repearling everyone that is already in Thistledown; there are people who have Thistledown pearls who arn't on very much so it's going to be just as big of a pain in the ass to pearl them, too. What I believe we need right now is just more new members that are searching for a social LS/newbies that don't have any LS. If Sevrine can sign in long enough to bag a bunch of people, we'll be fine.

At any rate, I hope Sevrine won't be gone for too long, then we wouldn't need to worry about this at all.

Starting the grind yet again by leveling BLU, and I'm off to a pretty good start. Level 21 now. I decided to take my inflated gil and abuse it horribly by making pretty much my entire set of gear white-bordered so I can stroke my ego. :P

Learning spells is a pain in the ass though, and I have a lot of spells to learn before I go on leveling. BLU is probably not the job you want to play if you want to challenge Shiggy's leveling marathon there. Heh.

Go figure that the internet connection in my dorms is a lot faster than the one that I have at home. How that works, I have no idea.

I suppose I shall take this moment to take advantage of your sig making, then. :P

1. TT Male Face 4A. Should be the short ponytail one with gray hair.

2. Just NIN, probably. I'm not sure of your photoshop skills, but I suppose something that makes it look like I have shadow copies surrounding me would be kinda cool. :P Just stick me in full ninja AF with no helm. I'm fine with any weapon, though I suppose I'll hold a kunai of some sort in my right hand and a shinobi gatana in the other.

3. I want an image of my character looking up to the sky.

4. A darker color scheme is preferred. For the background, if possible, I want a shot of Vana'Diel's night sky with the moon to the side.

5. Border- Eh, whatever you think looks better.

6. Hmm...

I'm kinda picky, heh, so I won't mind if you take the lazy route for some of these things.

In other news, my WHM went from 18-21. Now it's time to get my BLM out of the crappy Dunes.

Edit: Oh right, forgot job levels. Sorry. :P
By the way, since the numbers will constantly change, perhaps you can tell me what text and such you use for the numbers so I can change it myself when I need to.

Yeah ,I was going to tell you guys but since we're in different time zones it was difficult to catch you guys online, heh.

The LS is called Thistledown, by the way.

Addendum:

Personally vouching that Sevrine is one of the coolest people I've met in the game, he pretty much gets along with everyone except for the biggest of assholes (Who was in our former sky LS, got pissed off when Sevrine won the lot on a Haidate).

Hey, if FlamingDuck/Valesti thinks he's cool, I'm pretty sure that says a lot to you guys. :P

We did make an LS named Unpossible, but we're pretty much considering quitting that to go to another LS (Er, the name slips my head right now) owned by Sevrine, who isn't from RPGFan but was a member of Waterslide. We didn't really want to try to move everyone over to a new LS because that always just creates a bunch of chaos.

Most importantly Sevrine's LS has a few of former Zohar/Solaris/Waterslide/Whatever the hell people in it like Risten and Evalith (though its usually empty), and most notably Valesti. Can't have a complete RPGfan LS without his random legendary rants. :P

So yeah, we're probably going to toss Unpossible and go to Sevrine's LS, since Unpossible only had like 5 people in it anyway. We just made it like 2 days ago, so it's not too bad to quit while we're ahead.

Also, in-game name is Kincard now.

Haven't posted here in a while.

I've watched Haruhi Suzumiya. I don't think there's a lot to say here, since half the people who come to the forum already watch it. I'm sure I missed a good amount of the inside jokes and references, but the ones I did get left were hilarious.

Still watching Mazinger Z, albeit at a really slow pace. I think I'm taking it at a slow pace since every episode doesn't fail to leave me laughing my ass off.



They sure were scientific in the 70s!

Of course, this is, without a doubt, my favorite one:



Wow, I feel LULL all over![/size]

He says "Wow", as if he's enjoying getting shocked to death. Oh, Kabuto Kouji, you and your wierd sexual fantasies.

Currently on Episode 7.

Mainly, I've been watching Eureka 7, which I'm done with now. I was thoroughly impressed by the series. Seems like BONES is on a streak with this anime along with Full Metal Alchemist.



Really basic story. Boy meet girl. Boy pilots robot. Boy kicks ass. But it's the execution that's really good to me. The show has a lot of very powerful and memorable moments. One particular scene I remember is one of a man, having recieved great hospitality from a stranger, holds in his tears until his goggles fog up. At times the music gets a little over-the-top and grand, though.

One thing that impresses me to no end is the quality of the animation. This is a 50-episode long series we have here, and it is beyond the quality of most 13-episode series I've seen recently. Granted, Studio BONES is pretty famous for their good-looking series. The battles are very fast-paced, and it's only supported even more by a great soundtrack. I highly recommend this series.

Being a mecha fanboy, I was pretty excited to come into contact with what many people consider the "origin" of all mecha anime. Yep, I started watching Mazinger Z. The animation is piss-poor and the storyline is as simplistic as it gets, yet perhaps one of the things that can't help but continuously entertain me is the crappy Hong Kong subtitles that throw off the (supposedly) serious scenes.



To wash the bad animation flavor out of my mouth, I'm also watching Turn A Gundam.

Finished Now and Then, Here and There and REC. REC, in particular, surprized me, because it doesn't give as much crap as a lot of other Romantic comedies do, probably because the whole series is only long enough to fit into one movie. This approximately 90-minute series accomplished a lot more in the 9 10-minute episodes it had than some other 26-episode series I've watched. I usually don't like this type of anime, but I'm glad this was an exception.

Watching Macross 7. This series is a sharp contrast to REC, because it stretches out the series with so much filler and so little explanation that I get irritated. I don't know if it's purposely funny that Basara is so damn into his music, or it's only that way to me because of how he sings in the most serious situations.

I'm on episode 19, and I'm hoping they will start explaining some of the stuff going on, because up to now it's been pretty formulatic.

Started watching Now and Then, Here and There.

I was surprized that I watched 8 episodes in one sitting- the plot really reached out and grabbed me. I look forward to how they conclude a story like this one in 13 episodes. One thing that irritates me, however, is the art. The characters all look too simplified to me, and Lala just plain freaks me out. I have to say the one part that really widened my eyes is when

Code:
Sara kills the soldier and escapes.

Hopefully Dizzy doesn't have a sister. :P

Took a break from Mazinkaiser real quick to watch MS Igloo. Personally, I think they should stop making the 1 year war side stories and make a real UC series.

Watching Mazinkaizer. Most people find shows like these pretty lame and Power-Rangery, but sometimes you need to watch something that DOESN'T require hours of hard thought afterwards.

It's nice to see that Mazinkaizer, while made in 2002, doesn't try to buy into current anime, but rather knows exactly what the hell it is and gives you as much action as you want.
