Personal Updates and Weekly Goals

Personal Updates and Weekly Goals

November 12th, 2008     

DRG to 47
SAM to 8

Dragoon is slowly making its way to 50. I keep testing my limits with what I can solo so… I end up dead a lot. Samurai will eventually be a subjob for Dragoon. I like the way two-handed weapons look so I might end up leveling that one further too.

Fellow to 47

Didn’t do much with Romi-kun this week. Just enough to get my tactics pearl but he ended up getting one level. I’m not sure how effective it is but the Shinai is so cute!

One more merit point for MP. I should go meripo sometime…

PM 8-1, 8-2, finished part 1 of 8-3

On Friday or Saturday night each week, we try to progress a bit with the PMs. This week we went on both days and finished quite a bit. One person had to leave part way through though on Saturday so we only finished part 1 of 8-3. So close to finishing….

Windurst Missions 6-1, 6-2, 7-1

I’ve been stuck waiting for help for 8-2 but a lot of LS mates haven’t gotten that far yet so we’re playing catch up instead.

For the Birds
Got my Jaguar Mantle for my 47 DRG. It’s more fun to do the quests than buy it even if its only 60k.

Did a few on Assault night but we are helping somebody catch up so I haven’t advanced past Lance Corporal yet. Points are good though.

Cleared Dynamis-San D’oria last week so that means we’ve finally cleared the first 4 zones. However, drops have been lacking so we’ll probably go through them a few more times before heading north. Yesterday was D-Jeuno. We had 3 100s drop but I didn’t have the highest bid on any of them. *sob* A few AF pieces dropped for other people too though so overall, good run. Lots of new people this week.

Goals for this week:
SAM to 10
DNC to 10
Fellow to 48
PM 8-3

So far, SAM is 14 and I’m going to go duo with a friend tomorrow. It’s been so much fun! I still don’t care much for soloing but at least SAM is easier than my usual mage classes and the exp under the new system is so yummy. Not sure if I’ll have time to do all my goals for the week though. So busy at work. *sob*

FFXI in Real Life: Part 2

FFXI in Real Life: Part 2

November 8th, 2008     

Today one of my students won an honorable mention award at an English speech contest. I’m pretty happy about it and very proud of her.

So what does that have to do with FFXI?

FFXI in Real Life: Part 1

FFXI in Real Life: Part 1

November 7th, 2008     

You know you play FFXI too much when….. you can’t help but take pictures of random FFXI references.

For example, what do ninja’s eat? Sushi? No way! Ninjas eat fluffy Ninja Snacks!

They were absolutely awful. It was more like eating packaging popcorn that had been lightly salted.

Also, on my last visit to Tokyo, I happened to spot the Tenshodo’s Ginza branch. Guess business in Jeuno just wasn’t enough…

Taking a trip to the Isle with 5 of my friends…. or not

Taking a trip to the Isle with 5 of my friends…. or not

November 5th, 2008     

At the beginning of this year, I came back to my apartment with Wings of the Goddess wondering if I’d find something that’d keep my interest. I had all but quit soon after Treasures of Aht Urghan came out, so all that content was new to me as well. I hadn’t kept up on any of the new systems or storylines while I was away from Vana’diel. At first, I spent a bunch of time in Whitegate and something caught my attention.

[Gathering members for Nyzul Isle Floor 45. /tell if interested.]

Nyzul Isle? Floor 45? Last time I walked around Vana’diel there wasn’t a giant tower called Nyzul Isle. I was completely in the dark about what they were talking about. I kept seeing shouts like this for different floors and so curiosity eventually got the best of me and I went searching for information.

Then, after many adjustments were made to Nyzul Isle, it seemed like the number of shouts increased to the point where they are constant. They also started to get very specific.

Which brings us to our topic: Japanese players and Nyzul Isle pickup parties.
