Making Myself Better

I haven't written but I have played. Just haven't had time to write. I haven't done a lot of very interesting. I've been doing a lot of small things to better my character. First, I had to change the way I was playing. I originally started this game on a PC. I moved to my PS3 for multiple reasons, but the main one was that I gave my father my PC.

So I've been playing on the PS3 and I've always wondered why I am the one who always get aggro'd. Why is my casting time so slow? Why can't I keep up with the other characters in the game? My questions were answered when I decided to play the game on my boyfriend's PC. The answer... the PS3 loads soooo much slower. Things don't show up until after I am passing, thus my reason why I always get aggro. Main structures are there but the little structures that help you navigate the lands don't show up until I'm right on it. Thus I was always getting lost. Reaction time for me sucked because I didn't see what was happening until it showed up on my screen. This hurt my playing. I didn't realize this over the 2 years that I've been playing on the PS3. This was costing me my Maat fight. So how did I remedy this situation? I bought a laptop!!!!!!! The 1st nonbusiness software I installed was FFXI. In total, it took me 7 hours to update the software. Not bad. I also had to get my macros from the PS3. It didn't transfer well so I have to do it again.

So let's get down to the game playing.

I've been farming items in Bastok region so I can gain Bastok fame for my last city summon, Titan. So I changed to SMN thinking that it would benefit hitting 2 targets at once. That was bad thinking on my end. The mobs died way too fast. So I just killed with my staff. All the while I'm farming this guy named "Ladiesman" was harrassing me to party. He was level 12. I told him I was farming and didn't want to party. He wouldn't take no for an answer. I even told him that if we did he was not going to get exp because I'm at a higher level.

At first I thought this guy was my friend Sbrightblade's mule. He wasn't. I don't know if he was just stupid. I told Kirinkage and Lordkaosu that this guy was harrassing me. I don't know if they said anything to him because he eventually stopped. I did get a lot of items that I still need to turn in.

I haven't done much dynamis lately. However I did do 2 Xarcabard run. The 1st run was pretty good. It was just farming and I got my Relic Hat: Deulist Chapeau. This makes me 3/6 on my relic. I count the belt. Not too many deaths. Our ls leader was not here on this run.

The 2nd run we were getting gear for a buyer and special pieces for people in the ls that needed items for their relic weapon. We died a lot on this run. I got down to 16k of exp.

Started trio with Kirin and LK. I didn't level. But had good time. We tried Beaucedine. We can take mobs there just as easily as Zi'tah. This time was crazy because things kept aggroing us. We died a lot. We just had runs of bad luck. So we were calling it a day when LK aggro'd 2 tigers, then Kirin aggro'd a gob and tiger pair and 2 other gobs joined the party. Needless to say, we had our asses handed to us, lol. Made for an exciting time.

Haven't done campaign in a while. I need the exp from dynamis deaths. It was just me and Kirin. We did a E Ronf [S] fight and this dyde Ferix comes and attacks the mob we were attacking and then stole our union goods. Why did he choose our union? Where did he come from? In my book, he was an asshole. We went to Battalia Downs [S] next. There were only 3 of us there to fight. So why, when battle started, there were 5 people there attacking our mob when there were so many mobs there to attack? This was just not right. We tried to lose them. Didn't happen. We did lose them when we tried to kill the Turket. They did not want to fight that thing, lol. I only got 1 item from union.

Small Things:
I farmed a testimony with LK and Kirin in Delkfutt Tower for RDM. We also leveled our NPCs. Romidiant turned 43 there.

Afterwards we went to help LK with a Windy mission. We had to go to Lily's Tower. He needed a RDM, WHM and BLM. I went WHM since Kirin could only come RDM. We got to door that he needed. I skipped this mission by the way. So we needed to leave but I didn't have warp ready and LK didn't have escape or warp 2. So we decided to walk out. On the way, L aggro'd a ton of mobs. We tried to fight our way until I realised that I had Tele-Holla. I cast that spell and got Kirin and me to Latheine but LK warped himself.

So far things are going well. I did try FFXIV. I don't really like it, so I will be sticking to XI. I don't think many people from my server will be playing XIV.

Hats Off To Me

I haven't blogged in what seems like 2 weekends. I was supposedly put on a self inflicted punishment in order to get my taxes done. Guess what! They are not done but really need to be and I've played the game, lol.

So last weekend I got on to level my SMN. It was me (SMN), Lordkaosu (NIN) and Kirinkage (WAR) in Zi'Tah. We decided to do a couple of pages. I was designated to pull. I'm pretty good at Carby pulling. This day thus guy named Myce was bring a jerk. He was taking every mob I sent Carby after. He was being a total jerk. So I finally get some mobs. I made a comment about the guy in pty chat and Kirin & LK responded in LS chat. Found out that the jerk is in our dyna shell. We were currently using because our normal one was empty. He made a comment saying he felt left out. I just ignored him.

We continue to exp when I get a tell from Zannon asking me why I didn't invite Myce to my party. I told him he was being a jerk. That's funny tho. He ran to Zannon to try to get into my little party. Anyway towards the end, Kirin fell asleep on us and I was so close to leveling that I invited Myce to the party. I got my 43 and finished playing for the night.

Next time I get on, LK and Kirin were doing pages in Terrigan. Zannon was busy again, so I joined the 2 in Terrigan, level Romidiant and gain some skill ups in the process. We did like to pages from FOV. Romidiant leveled to 42. I thought we continue, but LK wanted to Campaign. So we started to make our way to the past. LK got there first and found out he couldn't participate. So at that note, I decided to just log off.

Tonight I finally got the chance to do dynamis in a while. I've been busy. Tonight's area was Xarcabard. Well at least it was a pretty decent area. I still need Qufim win. So I get to start a DD party. I got Ashpool (WAR) Kakida (WAR), Sabont (THF), Rafbacca (WHM) and Nevaeh (DRG). I disconnected couple of times. Thank you Cablevision. And the RDM hat dropped again. So I just bid to bid not expecting anything. I went about my business as usual. I was raising Frizzlefry when Zannon said I could lot the hat. HOLYSHIT!!!! I got RDM hat. Maat definitely has to die quickly. I now have 3/5 pieces for RDM and that's not counting the RDM belt.The rest of night went like typical dyna fashion; deaths and drops. I had to get off at 10 pm. It was a good time. Hope they go tp Qufim one Sunday that I can make it. All in all, these past 2 weekends were not as action packed as previous, but I got shit done. Not what I wanted, but done.
