Source of Irritation

Some things that bother the crap out of me in the game:

#1 - If we in a party (no matter where and what event) and we wipe, when you get raise, sit down and heal like the rest of the party! Don't stand and expect me to waste all my MP to cure your ass!!!!!!! If that's how you're gonna play, I'm gonna leave your ass in the red!!!!!

#2 - If we in a tight spot where we need invisible and sneak, don't be cheap!! Bring your Own!! Making the mage constantly drop ours to put on yours, leads to death for us. Be considerate and bring your own.

#3 - Be prepared for events. Know what you need and what is to be done when you show up. Don't just depend on others. That's how you slow us down. We all have time constraints. Don't make all of us suffer for your incompetence. Be a boy or girl scout and be prepared!!!

That's all for now.

Level Cap Increase & New Stuff

So Sqeenix is raising the level caps to 99. What does this do for me? Absolutely nothing unless they make this damn RDM Maat fight easier.  Just longer to get to cap.

They also changing merit structure, adding 2 new avatars (Alexander & Odin) and new battle scenarios in the March update.

The new avatars can only be used in Astral Flow, lame.  They giving RDM debuffs to other jobs, WTF!!!  All the gear we have been fighting, slaving and begging over will be considered end game gear any longer.

Lots of people are upset. I'm not too upset yet until I see all the workings in action.

Check out Playonline!!!

To Be or Not To Be

That is the question. Should I continue Dynamis or take a break from it? It just seems that I will never get gear.  I'll cap and no longer get points and still not get gear. And at that point, it will be a waste of my time. I don't want to give my exp all the time without getting anything out of it. I show up most Sundays. I'm early. Been dedicated to the shell. But why be dedicated when I'm not getting anything out of it?

Would you go to work if you didn't get paid? Even if you like all the people at your job? Would you go? I do like the people in dynamis.  But would people do dynamis if there wasn't any gear drops?  No. So why attend if you get nothing from it?

This has been running thru my mind since, once again, I lost out to get a piece of gear again tonight. I bid, but of course when it was way too late, I get told to bid. The piece random dropped to someone who didn't want it. People were nice and sent me tells saying they were sorry about the situation. It was sweet of them. But at this point, I'm kind of disheartened about dynamis and gear.

Whether it was by accident or not, I'm just tired of the exp sink and the not getting gear. If I have the points and I bid the highest I should lot the gear. I understand that I'm not going to get the head until I'm 75 but the other gear is fair game. Not everyone wants all of the pieces of their relic. But every RDM wants the hat.

At this point, I'm just venting. I don't know what I'm going to do yet. Looking for any words of wisdom right now. I'm just a bit disheartened. I need some positivity.

Trials of Life

Life has really been keeping me busy, my friends. So I will try to post weekly instead of each time I play. I really can't keep up with posting like that. Maybe after April 15th. ~.-

We did dynamis Xarcabard on Sunday past. It was not a great run. Only great thing happened was that the RDM hat dropped twice. Of course I didn't get any. My usual thing. My only displeasure with dyna. Undercover RDMs outbid me all the time. If I actually knew how many
RDMs there are I could make a decent bid.   I know other LS says you can bid on your main job gear first.

Anyway, because of he RDM hat drop drama happened in LS. 3 people left the shell over the 1st drop. If they just calmed down they could've had the second drop. Oh well, impatience does not reward. Trust me I know this by heart.

The most horrendic part of he night was that I died like 5 times. I was in DD party where I was only curing (no one needed refresh :D). Died twice in that party. Then they made me go to tank party where I had to heal and refresh all. In that party, died 3 times. I hate dying on my RDM lately.

Trying to do the next Gobbie quest and there are 2 items that I need: iolite and HQ eft skin. I know I can farm both of them. So I decided to farm the eft skin first. Titen asked if he could help. I said sure. So I assumed he would be a THF/NIN or /DNC so I didn't /THF. A 75 THF is 20 times better than THF 15, you think?

Anyway, I meet him at Bibiki Bay. He's wearing orange!!! Not a very good sign. THFs are green!! He came orange which meant he was MNK/DNC. Damn it! That means we will be at this until I
wear out or get frustratingly bored. We annihilate the place, no HQ eft skin. We attained regular eft skin. Bah!! I'll cough up the gil, unless I get a THF 75 to help me out.
2-19-10 1
2-19-10 2

Haven't tried him sorry.

I leveled my BLM to 12. I duo'd with Naquel. Haven't seen him in a while. He's no longer in my LS. He apparently ruffles some people's feathers but he don't bother me at all. I get along with everyone. Ok, mostly everyone.

We worked 2 FOV pages and made our way thru Giddeus. I was lacking gear for my BLM when we started, but I got free gear from the Yags there. Yay for free gear!! I did die once though. Had to HP and run back. Naq and I were the squishy team. He was WHM/BLM and I was the opposite. He didn't die at all.

Been trying to work the quests, but it's just not easy man. I am still in middle of synergy quest for Bastok and a quest regarding smooth stone for Windy. Getting cornettes or other items for Windy fame are not easy as for Norg. I kill every Mandragora type mob I see. I also plan on doing the quests for Tele-Mea, Tele-Dem and Drain. I believe they all are for Windy.

Haven't tried COP 3-5 again and I did start mission 4-1 Windy. Lordkaosu moved to Windy now, so maybe we can get Rank 10 together. We'll see. People like leaving me behind since I'm not on a lot.

That's it for this post. TTFN!

It's About Time....... Right?

Okay it's been a while that I have posted. This is my busy season as I stated before. Taxes and such, yay! So much for my gaming life. I'm going to break up my adventures in categories that way you can get a gist what I've been up to. There can be days in between but I'm summizing what has occurred.

I decided to try my luck at Maat again after a hiatus of trying. Itdidn't go so swell. Normally I'm close to a win, but this try was likemy first couple of runs. The minute he saw me, he didn't sleep and he thundered me and asurian fist me. Instant death. I was trying the strategy to run in sleep him then put on my buffs. This way he didn't put on any of his buffs. Well it was a great thought that didn't come into fruition.

We tried to do mission 3-5. We got Zannon and Frizzlefry to help us(me, Kirinkage, Lordkaosu and Solesiren). Our other member Gunrockwent ahead and did 3-5 the day we all did 3-3. We tried him like 5
times. We nearly won once. Sole and Kirin both fell when the floor fell away during fights. We would've tried again but most of thepeople had to go to Sky. Next time we try, we need 2 DRKs instead of one. Or a BLU. Anyone with Stun ability. Diabalos is pretty tough. But at least he's one person and not 3.

I leveled BLM to 10. I now have some intereztig spells to work with now. My BLM will be a bit gimp because I am not buying/questing anyaga spells. I may just get sleepga only. Job is only going to 37. I want retrace & warps only. Only reason I'm leveling it as a sub. That and not having to be main healer in some parties.

Skill Ups:
Been FOV'in in Terrigan with Titen while leveling Romidant. First time with Titen, he had to run to camp a turtle in Valley of Sorrows. I decided to try a bunny. Hey if I was able to handle a crab on my own, I should be able to handle a bunny right? Wrong. I had to call for help. Romidant was doing better than myself. I also think my downfall in that fight was I was not paying 100% attention to the fight. I had like 3 people sending me tells and my ls was heating up with good chatter.

The second time we were able to do 2 pages. Romi leveled to 34 (yes, Idon't level him often). My sword skill reached 203 and I learned Vorpal Blade weaponskill; even though I can't use it as a RDM. Titen said that my sword will cap at 250. 47 levels to go.

Been doing quests here and there trying to get fame, but it's moving slowly. Items for repeat quests aren't dropping. I started Synergy quest with Kirin. We never completed the quest though. I will probably get Diabalos before I get Ramuh, Ifrit, Titan and Fenrir. We do know Fenerir was going to be last anyway. Have to do fights over again. For all the standard avatars except Diabolos. I will probably help Kakida with Shiva and Garuda to get those whispers.

Haven't done dynamis in 2 weeks. Last Sunday was Qufim and I don't have access yet. The last one I believe I did was Xarcabard. Again, I didn't get anything since my gloves in Bastok. Oh well. Today there isn't any dynamis because of the Super Bowl. Hopefully at next run Ican get a piece of gear for RDM or SMN. And maybe I'll pass 3-5 by then too.

Now we come to depressing news. My internet is wonky. I am losing packets. So over past week or so we'vr been getting Dc'd a lot. So Cablevision is coming again to try to solve the issue.
