Myochin Kabuto Get

I know this is going to sound really pathetic, but I just now finally finished my original SAM AF helmet. That’s right, I finally have my Myochin Kabuto!

I’ve had SAM unlocked now for nearly three years and I’m just now getting the helmet. If that’s not pathetic I don’t know what is. But I am glad to finally have it and to have finally finished all the original artifact armor quests for that job. Now I’m going to start working on getting the seals for the new Abyssea SAM AF legs.


Another Quick Infobar Database Update

Another quick update for everyone here..

Database Update

And here’s what’s new so far:

September 29, 2010
Xarcabard [S] and Abyssea Misareaux should both be done to the best of what I can do with the information on the wiki. Note that some NMs are missing and maybe one or two regular monsters. Abyssea Konschtat has been added as well (again, without most of the NMs). I started adding some of the newer NMs that were added to some of the earlier zones (like N.Gusta) from the patch a year ago or so.

If you come across anything that doesn’t seem quite right let me know and I’ll do my best to fix it.

Infobar Database Update

Whether or not you agree with it, the unofficial Windower does have some handy little add-ons.  One of which is something I use: Infobar.  If you’re unfamiliar with it, it basically just adds a bar at the top of your screen and when you scroll over something (say a monster) it gives you information on the subject.  It’s mostly used to look at monsters without having to run to the wiki.  It can tell you if a monster aggros, what level range it is, if it’s by sound/true sound/etc etc etc.  It’s handy and I don’t think it’s really “game breaking” like some of the plugins that some people use.

Anyway, the database has been out of date for over a year now and it doesn’t seem like it’s ever getting another update.  I’ve decided to take it upon myself to start trying to update it.  I know this is going to be quite a task, as there’s tons of new monsters in this game, but I figure..well, why not? If someone else comes along and beats me to it, I’ll gladly just give the link to their work but until then I’ll try to update it periodically.

So here’s my update for tonight..

And here’s what’s new so far:

September 28, 2010 Update
Idle wanderers added to the promyies and the vultures added to Misareaux Coast. Almost everything in Beaucedine Glacier [S] has been added except for NMs (the wiki doesn’t list their levels). I started adding stuff from Xarcabard [S] and Abyssea Misareaux.

I know this first update is a bit underwhelming, but there’s a lot to be added to this to make it up to date. Give me time and I’ll get it done.

The zip only contains the database file and does not include the ini.  PLEASE BACK UP YOUR DATABASE BEFORE COPYING THIS ONE OVER! I try to check when I add stuff to make sure it’s working right but sometimes I don’t get the time. It’s best if you keep a copy of a working database somewhere in case something goes awry.

I’ll announce it here on the blog when I make another update to this.  Until then.. try it out, let me know if it’s broken or anything like that.


So my LS mates convinced me to buy the second Abyssea expansion. I wasn’t really sure if I wanted it or not but I figured if it was anywhere near as much fun as the first one (with getting so much xp) then it’d be worth it. Plus, what the heck? New areas to explore and a whole new event to try out: Bastion.


RNG Grinding


Holy EXP Batman!

Holy mother of all that is sacred in Vana’diel!

I went into Abyssea for the first time last night.  I had bought the expansion sometime last month but just never found time to actually do anything more than go in and turn in stones to build up my time.  Boy am I surprised!


Level 81! Woohoo! Also, Trials.

I managed to get the final Kindred’s Crest and turn them in.  Now begins the long grind to 85.
