Happy new year! Not too many words for this update, mostly pictures. Like this one:
That's it Mikhe! Tempt him by BENDING OVER AND SHAKING.
Fairly odd comments, I think you'll agree (regarding the second one: we somehow decided Kirin is my dad, and Psy wants red legs. I forget how that conversation occured). However...
Death by Snoo Snoo? :D This LS seems to have lots of women. They seem to like me. Some of the guys do too. I think Nix likes me less after this though...
Note Wolf's message on the second screenshot. How right he was! I did manage to HQ one for Nix eventually though, which is good, as I felt awful for blowing up her Claw. This happened later that day, though...
Yeah. That's what I get for buying them at 150k below market price! Q_Q
Anyway. Aside from being whored off and blowing things up, I've been keeping busy. Helped Zark camp Roc a few more times, which finally saw this:
Done a lot of BCNM and KSNM runs, but nothing of note dropped, though Royale Ramble is *fun*. Got myself a polearm to skill up with and do WS points with, plus a nice bit of money. I've also had some nice money synths, but SS of success is boring, failure is far more fun!
One thing I didn't
do was camp Simurgh with the LS, as I was busy at the time. I'm kinda glad I didn't go. Somehow, they raged it with 5 people (how? I dunno. I used to kill it with 4 back on Phoenix). They inevitably wiped, RR'd, re-claimed, wiped, called for backup, etc. etc. until it finally died (no boots or money drops. That's one hard earned Arcana Breaker). I told Wolf about it via POL message, and about how a JP shell was watching. His response was thus:
Photographic proof that Nix has ninja!
Brd melee on EPs is fun. 23% haste, haste spell, and double march. Hundred daggers! Fun times, and didn't take long to unlock my Nyzul WS, which is pretty, and I will probably never ever use.
Something good. I think it was on Sunday when Psy was in Xarcabard for some unknown reason, and he spawned Biast while killing dragons. He claimed, and teamed up with a JP whm who was passing by, and they started working on it while a few of us got there. Myself, Psy, and Tug went from our LS; the whm had a blm friend come out. We didn't know them, they didn't know us, but they were willing to help out. And, well...
I shall use it well! Thank you guys! Given my quest for Maat's cap, this helm will see a lot of use. And this is the kind of thing which gives me faith in people; that two people we didn't know would help out, with no interest in the item, is wonderful.
While the LS has taken a break from Sea/Sky for the Xmas season, we've kept up with Limbus due to demand for AF+1. It's not been overly serious, but we still succeeded in clearing temenos east/west/north with less people than normal, and it's been good fun. Most people got the items they wanted too, though I think Zark and Albi were disappointed...
And Geoff made an Xmas episode for his "FusionRR: The Serie". Here's a link to the Xmas episode, which will also have links to the others in the series so far:http://fr.youtube.com/watch?v=ejJEyrwPorI
Denali and an Xmas hat is hot!
Most of my time, though, has been on levelling pld. I'm level 72 at the time of writing. I was 21 in October. Quite a way I've come! I'll have some nice things waiting for me over the next few levels: Hecatomb gear, Homam shorts and gloves, and on Sunday, I'll get my AF+1 boots:
Yes, I did re-quest them first to make sure I won't be gimp in parties. <3 tanking. I've also managed to upgrade my thf hands to +1, for TA sets (repeating the quests was a bitch, I fucking hate the hat quest), which I'm happy about. Took me a long time to get the Temenos item.
One last thing that I'm very happy about. Kurai made me a custom .dat after I commented how I liked one he'd shown me on ffxidats.com, but the eyes on it creeped me out. It combined mithra faces 2B and 6A, but the blue eyes on it weren't to my liking, they were too... electric. So, he re-did it for me :D
The ears were made white too, but I don't care. Thanks Kurai :D
Until next time, I'll leave you with evidence on how wimpy warrior Maat is:
