Summoning Powers Activate

So after sleeping late and diddle dallying around the house, I decided to see what I can get into on game. Was going to see if any low level parties was taking place. If there wasn't any, then I was going to get my earring from yesterdays ZM mission and do the next one. I figured I'd get tge Abyssal earring since it at least have 2 stats I can use.

I said hello to linkshell and asked what folks were doing. I was already on SMN when I logged in. Houshisama said he was in Qufim doing Trio party, level 24. I asked if My SMN could join. They said sure.

I op to Qufim immediately and joined the party. It was Solesiren as PLD, Frizzlefry as WHM/SMN, Houshisama as WAR/NIN. Frizzle left to change to BST/NIN. We had a powerleveler, Kirinkage. Sole left for dinner and Frizz replaced her with a guy named Mistictaru, a WHM/BLM. I leveled twice before I had to dash off for Dynamis. So I'm currently sitting at level 28 with a buffer.
4-25-10 1
4-25-10 2

So I make my way to Bastok where dynamis is taking place. I dropped the party I was in, in order to seek for a dyna party. Boy did I get yelled at by Frizzy. He was going to use the nexus cape to get to Bastok. He should've told me that before I disbanded. I am not a mind reader, lol. The ls was also looking for a new sackholder because one of the sacks no longer attends. I threw my name in if they needed. So did Kirin and 3 others. So the leaders will choose sometime this week. My feelings will not be hurt if I don't become a sack. I'm am just willing to help if needed. One thing though, I do try to make dynamis if I can't play at all for the week.

So we got a lot of new people in shell tonight. For a while they were placing me in the BLM party (so much fun). Then I ended up in a party with another RDM (Chayst) and a WHM. Chayst was in charge of Phalanx 2
for party and refreshing the BLU. I was in charge of Haste for the party and refreshing the WHM. We both silenced the scorpions. So this run was going sprectacularly until we got to 2nd to last NM before the Mega Boss. Died I believe 4 times. However this run I got my first piece of relic for SMN. I only spent 5 points for them. They are the gloves. More motivation for me to get SMN up and get RDM to 75.

I really should concentrate on my Maat fight!!!!

Mighty Divine

So i made no plans to get on game today. I had a really late night last night. Didn't come home until 4 am this morning. All I wanted to do was nap all day. So I am laying down on my couch trying to take a nap when my brother thunders upstairs telling me they are doing "Divine Might/Ark Angels" ZM mission. I said it's okay, I'll get it another time. He left me alone.

I fall asleep again. Don't know for how long, but my brother, came thundering upstairs again and wakes me up about this mission again. I grumbled at him saying, leave me alone I'm sleeping. I turn my back to him and he leaves again.

I fall back asleep but for how long? I don't know. My brother came back to wake me up about the mission for the 3rd time!!! This is becoming an annoying pattern. So I said fine, I get up off of my couch and head to my bedroom where my PS3 is located, and turned on the game. I run to Sky where the mission takes place. Before I get there, I had to get ready. More like wake up.

I op to Zi'tah. I am running to Ro'maeve (however you spell it). As I'm running, I read in chat "Bastet casts Shock". WTH?!? I didn't think that was for me. I didn't hear an aggro sound. So I keep running. The shock spell didn't hurt me. I am still making my way to Ro, then my chat filter read "Bastet casts Thundaga III". Once again I was not injured. But now I actually believe this mob is after me. I never get aggro'd in Zi'tah!!!! I decide I wasn't going to fight and continued on running. My bro kept telling me to turn and look at what this mob is. I had no intention of doing that. It must be an NM to aggro me. I am still running when it cast Burst on me. That one did hurt me. That means he's catching up to me. I continue to run. He managed to get 2 more spells off before I zoned: choke and thundaga III again.

I am now in Ro'maeve. I had my bro come direct me to hall of gods. I get to Sky, get my cut scene and make my way to the group. They put me in the BLM party. We got 18 people to do this mission. We start this mission. We have to fight 5 crystal versions of the races of Vana'diel. I died 2 or 3 times. But in the end, we won. Everyone ran to get their earrings. I just warped back to Windy. I didn't know what earring I wanted. I have to do some research on it. I went back to my couch and finished my nap.

I woke sometime later and found the game on still. So I decided to see if anyone wanted to duo with me. Chayst said he would. But when I arrived in Qufim, He said he needed to do some BCNMs first. So I op
back to Windy and logged off. I hate soloing.

Kirinkage Set New Record on PLD

Kirinkage decided to challenge Maat to a fair duel today on PLD. He went in and whopped his ass. Used a Joyeuse, Reprisal and straight up beating that ass. He set  a new record.

My Weekend Back In Rotation

This weekend I was able to hop back into game. Yay! So let's discuss.

What to do? I want to play but not quite ready for Maat. Need some more experience before I try again. Get my bearings on RDM again, you know. So I have 2 subs to work on for RDM: NIN and BLM. Both are level 12. However, BLM is not as dire as NIN. So my bro suggested we duo
NIN. I said fine.

As I was changing jobs a ls member, Chayst, was looking for a level 11/12 party in the dunes. I said yes of course. So did Kirin. I had to hunt for gear for my NIN. I had only level 8 gear but I need a little
bit better gear. I found some adequate gear in my storage, but it was only for my legs feet, back, hands and waist. Needed a body. So I put on my level 1 body and ran to AH to buy a body piece and some Shi-Hei
to use for my shadows. I look like I have leotards on.
I'm showing and extreme amount of legs. Worse than when I was wearing my AF legs without body on my RDM. I got a top but no Shi-Hei. Kirinkage said
he'll pick me some up.

Now I just have to get to the Dunes. As I was making preparations on getting to the dunes, a dyna ls buddy, Ryuhlu sent me a tell. So I invited him to party. He wanted to come SAM. So I change to WHM and
tele'd myself to Holla while I was naked. Didn't feel like bringing any extra clothes with me. I jump on a chocobo to Dunes. As I was riding, I saw a pixie.
You don't usually see them in the present. Only in the past.

I make it to Selbina and changed back to NIN. I so love Tonko: Ichi. I am able to run the Dunes to camp while invisible. Yay! No Leechers to mess with me. I meet up with Kirinkage and Solesiren at the opening to
cave to lizard camp. We have to fight the bats on the way thru tunnel. We all meet up at the book by zone to Konschtat. The party was as follows: me NIN/DNC, Chayst SAM/DNC, Ryuhlu SAM, Solesiren PLD/WAR, Kirinkage NIN/WAR and a person named Enjo as WHM. So we level sync when everyone gets here. We grab page 2 from Fov book and start killing.

After a while we changed camps, then Kirin and Sole had to leave but we got replacements: Drizzy THF and Kingbobby COR. Ryuhlu came back as PLD. By this time I was already level 14. Was working to get 15.
Time was growing short and we changed camps once again. We got another page from book: crabs and flies. We were taking on crabs at oasis. Then King dc'd on us. So we decided to try one fly to see if we could
manage it. It nearly killed us. So we called it a night. I didn't get 15 but I only needed 400 exp to get it.

I get on early to get my 15 on NIN. I asked ls if anyone wanted to duo but I get no response so I head out to Giddeus. As I was running there, the LS started harping and ganging up on a friend of mine, Sbrightblade (SBB). They were messing with him, calling him names and all sorts of things. I did not like it at all. It really bothered me. Now most of the people who were harping on them didn't even know him. Granted SBB is a huge, I mean HUGE, flirt. You really can't take him seriously. He's a nice guy to me and has helped me out a lot. He says hello to me all the time and we have convos all the time. He's never really done or said anything obscebe to me. I believe I met him within the 1st month of playing this game and I have written about him too. But it all stems from one person in LS who doesn't get along within to get a pack mentality going. I don't like
that kind of mess or drama. I say if you have a problem with a person let it stay with you and let everyone else make their own judgements on that person. This whole convo turned my tummy and start looking at everything without blinders on. I still like my LS, but did not like this crap at all.

Anyway, I digress. I reached Giddeus in no time at all. I started killing yags at the start but something wasn't right. My exp was not moving. I noticed this about the 8th yag I killed. So I checked the next one. It was Too Weak to Be Worthwhile. LMAO. So I made my way to the open area in the south where te yags read Easy Prey. Within couple of kills I finally leveled to 15. Yeah baby, 22 more levels to go. So I decided to make a cushion so if I die I won't level down. So that's more killing. Then I got myself into a bad predicament. I went to kill one yag and I was ambushed!! 4 others joined the fight. So of course I died. But where I died I was still surrounded by yags. I had to wait until their backs were turned to raise. I immediate cast Tonko and ran
for my life. I sat and rested. I didn't lose too much exp and I had a cushion still. I made my way back to my mog house because my mom and I were heading to Home Depot. When I got to my mog house I changed into my RDM for Dynamis then op'd to Beaucedine.
I left my character there for dynamis and left for the depot.

I return to game just in time for dynamis. I was put in BLM party. We were going for win. I died 4 times towards the end. We were getting the last NMs before boss. This is where it gets hilarious. So a wyverm
was beating up on my party member so I healed her and was killed by said wyverm. As I died, one of the NMs that was awake charmed everyone except for Crim. So everyone was aimed to take Crim down. The scene was hilarious. You see Crim running for his life and a massive group of characters in a bunch chasing him and then behind him the NM was following. It was f'in hilarious. Man I was in stitches. I tried to take screenshots of it but the pic I got they were too far away to really see it.

My boy, Frizzlefry, died more times that I could count, and always in middle of me casting a spell. However, dying 4 times, I never lost any exp. I have the same exp that I came in with. I didn't get any raise 3s. Just my standard Reraise 1. Wonder if it was a glitch or if squeenix changed something. Oh well, whatever it was, it was great for me.

Dual Wielding Bad Ass

I get on without any intentions. I wanted to relax a bit. I debated whether to level my NIN or BLM.  They are both subs I need to level. Bah! They don't appeal to me, but hey I have to level them to 49 now.

I decided to go NIN. I gear up. I figured I'd learn my spell, Tonko:Ichi, so I can free up space in my Mog Safe. So I head out to east Sarutabaruta after I went to AH to get tools for Tonko. I make my way to West Sarutabaruta to the OP. I kill stuff on the way. I get a page and start knocking more mobs off.  Mobs were getting too easy so I decided to head to Giddeus. I wish there was a FOV book in there. So I head down the beginning passages & tunnels taking out both Yags & Worms.

I was going to try one of the open rooms. I checked a Yag from tunnel & it read as Tough. So that was a bad idea. So I continue where I was and then my bro, Kirinkage, decided he wanted to come powerlevel me. I said sure. So when he met up w/ me in Giddeus, we decided to try the Toughs.

So this is what went down. I see one lone Yag standing by the ledge. I decided to take it on. Then next you know, as I started attack, 7 more yags from on top of the ledge joined in the fun. I thought I was going to die!!!!!! My bro is curing. I'm doing Drain Samba. Using my second weapon skill. The one that paralyzes.  Man it was an amazing battle. Little ole me was taking on 8 yags and surviving with help of a powerleveler. My chat screen was all yellow. I capped my katana skills during the whole battle. 

The battle ended with the yags dead by my katanas. But I was mortally wounded. So I needed to heal. I put on Tonko: Ichi and rested. Then it happened. I got  "Mom Aggro". She called me. So I thought it was going to be quick. Then she told me to sit down. That was a very bad sign. She not only called me, but my bro too.  Tonko don't last very long & I was hoping she would speak faster. But she kept on talking. I told her about the game & she gave me the "look". You must always obey the look, no matter how old you are, lol.

When she finished, I ran to see how dead I was. Yep, I was D.E.D. dead. Thank goodness I had FOV reraise on. I rose & ran to the tunnel. I have 16 HP to my name & a damn worm decided to aggro me. But since I'm such a bad ass, I killed it and didn't lose a HP. Once I got back to full HP unweakened, I got my ass out of Giddeus to FOV to make up the exp that I lost because of Mom Aggro. I stopped when I leveled to 12.

Kirin suggested I go grab Utsusemi: Ichi. So I change back to RDM, traded some items for fame. Then I went toNorg tostart quest then trapsed around Sea Serpent Grotto. I finish the quest and headed back to Windy after I finish learning the scroll.
