The Taru facial expression in the /kneel pose is... kinda weird, haha.  So I went with a standard "standing there" one instead.  The WHM/NIN "battle stance" (from the Hexa Strike animation) attracts attention from the eye, anyway. :)

I love that signature, except for one thing. The background and text are far too similar a shade for my eye to distinguish between them very easily. It makes it hard to read, not impossible, but hard.


Got my Hume alt Ekbert up to level 9 THF. I am not a fan of leveling THF, it is a pain in the ass when you are poor and can't afford clothes or a new weapon. I am not sure how big of a difference that would really make, but it would have to be better than what I am doing now.

All right, we are going to use a fan brush here and uh why don't you take some hunter green and we are going to put a happy little bush right down over here in the corner there and that'll just be our little secret and if you tell anyone that that bush is there I will come to your house and I will cut you.

Hey girls, are people still as anal about race/job combinations as they were four years ago?  I've been looking over things while deciding if I want to give this game a try again, and I just can't get the idea of playing an Elvaan red mage out of my head...but my tolerance for bitching MMOers is minuscule. :P

Race/Job combinations?  Taru will always be the "best" mages because of their racial emphasis on MP, MND, and INT, and Mithra will always be the "best" THFs, RNGs etc. because of their high AGI and DEX values, but it doesn't matter much and no one really cares anymore.  Galka WHMs, Mithra BRDs, all sorts of "inferior" combinations are very acceptable, these days, and any minor differences in the racial stuff can be easily accounted for with good gear and merit points.

EDIT - Last night's accomplishements.  44.5 COR --> 47 COR, and helped Leyviur kill the two NMs for the SAM quest (which he has now unlocked, I believe)!

actually im pretty sure mithra and taru are tied for the worst mind. plus from my time with whm and blu i always felt +mp was worthless unless you are zerging since once things get going you will rarely get back to full mp or completely exhaust your mp. then again im an elvaan female so i may be downplaying mp. meh i should get a new sig since when i had it made i was planning to level puppetmaster to 75 wich i promptly retired at 23 =o

This morning's sky run was productive!  First, I kicked Faust's ass:


Then, I kicked Seiryu's ass.  And my LS discovered that this {cat} {Warrior} comes with Treasure Hunter 1000:


I walked away with a piece of the spoils:



Then, the theory was confirmed @ Byakko:




2 Byakko's Haidates FTW!  But alas, I could not obtain one.  2nd highest roll on both drops. >_<;  But, this was a decent substitute:




Good run, I'd say.  Now, I shall resume <strike>throwing money at the mobs for experience points</strike> levelling Corsair. :P

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...

Kincard
Leviathan
"Someday, in the sea of stars..."
Date of last update
For job stats, if you can, use a small weapon image corresponding to the job:
NIN75: Kikoku
WAR42: Bhuj
MNK11: Sphari
THF50: Jambiya
WHM21: Mjollnir
BLM18: Claustrum
RDM30: Rapier
PLD13: Aegis
DRK10: Apocalypse
BST6: Guttler
BRD11: Gjllarhorn
RNG10: Yoichinoyumi
SAM10: Shinsoku
DRG10: Mezraq
SMN20: Well, for this, it can be an Evoker's Horn or Carbuncle Ruby. Up to you.
BLU43: Kilij
COR11: Hexagun
PUP11: Sainti
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.

I'm not sure of your photoshop skills...


Not spectacular, haha.  The character models are constructed/posed in Model Viewer, then imported into 3D Studio Max for rendering.  From there, I sharpen them up a little w/ Photoshop and add the desired background (and sometimes use a color balance adjustment layer w/ a cloud filter).  It's pretty basic stuff.

The "shadows" thing will be a challenge, but I'll do some research and give it a shot.  Give me a couple days for this one, lol.

I am a nerd. I copied a ton of information on the character classes (levels of spells, AF gear and combat skills) and then bound them while at work so that I have a book with the information in it.

I got to 13 last night on my warrior...then promptly died and fell to 12. We are trying to get through Buburimu to get to Valkurm. We have decided to wait until 15ish then try again, unless we can get someone to escort us.
