LUA Infobar Preview

Just a quick post to confirm my previous post.  The LUA Infobar addon is almost complete.  There are a few minor syntax type issues (such as showing “not aggressive” which eats up a lot of space on that bar) works.

I’ll write one more post when Kenshi releases it to the public so that everyone can go grab it.


Jelly Ring Get

I know it’s 2013 so soloing these types of NMs probably isn’t that impressive any more, but it still amazes me just what I can do with SAM.  I never thought in a million years that I’d ever see a Jelly Ring, muchless that I’d get it solo one morning.  Awesome!



Shoha is done!

Tachi: Shoha is done. :dancing: I haven’t had a chance to test the strength of 5/5 Shoha yet but I hope it’s worth grinding 100 full merits for.  3/5 was as strong as Y/G/K so I’m expecting good things out of 5/5.

Things to do (whenever I get a chance):

  • Finish my Keitonotachi trial (this one will be a long-term goal, as the trial I’m on is painfully dull and I can’t stand to do it for much at a time)
  • Figure out how to duo a worm NM in Abyssea for SAM and RDM AF3 head seals for both of us (I need both, Smz needs SAM).
  • Do the level 40 AF weapon quests for: WAR, WHM and BLM and then immediately store all those pieces in storage.
  • Do lots of campaign to build up more notes so that I can turn around and buy lots of voiddust
  • Figure out the best AH items I can buy for RDM and get to building my item sets.. (then I’ll start working on the rare/ex stuff for RDM)
  • Work on WAR so I can get it up to Fell Cleave level (which will then allow us to grind merits a bit easier)
  • Need to finish skilling up RDM.  Enhancing was completely capped at 87 but now that I’m 97 it’s a bit behind again.  Elemental and Dark are both waaaaay behind.  Healing is somewhere inbetween. X_x

All of my FFXI Pictures

I’ve been playing FFXI off and on since 2004, when I used to play on the Asura server. After 2005 I quit (to make a long story short RMT camping literally every monster + decreasing funds = not a good time to play FFXI). I came back in 2007 on Quetz as a completely new character and have been pretty active since then.

Over the years I have taken an insane amount of pictures. I’ve recently spent a bit of time uploading them all to phobotucket.

If you’re interested in seeing seven years worth of pictures (with an eighth on the way soon) click right here and take a gander.

Aside from being sorted by year, there’s no real order to the galleries. And I’m quite aware that I have taken a huge number of totally pointless pics. 😛


Genkai 10 Finished + Shoha Unlocked

It seems that my fears of never finishing the final genkai was a bit premature. I ended up getting super lucky as I ran into one of my old LS mates. He was willing to help pull together a BST party to help me get past it. So thanks Jud and all those involved in helping me get past that huge road block.

Since then I decided to get the 1 xp I needed to get to 96 and then turn my focus on the new weaponskill. I’ve accumulated a whopping 25 merit points via campaign to unlock the new weapon skill category and Tachi: Shoha level 1.

People on other forums have talked about how overpowered Tachi: Shoha is, even at level 1. They were saying that outside of Abyssea they were doing around 2,000 damage with it and inside of Abyssea with certain atmas they were doing 6,000+ damage with it. Well, I took it to the closest place I could think of outside of Abyssea that had mobs that wouldn’t die in one hit and tried it out. I did 600 damage with it. LOLOLOL!

Well, to be fair I was using the soboro (I still love that weapon, even though I really should get off my lazy butt and work on my keitonotachi). Still, even using the soboro I’m normally doing 800+ damage with Y/G/K. Considering people were saying it’s just as strong as those three, I was expecting it to be around the same damage.

At least the animation looks neat. :shobon:

BST x2 Is Actually Pretty Fun

If you had told me a few months ago, or maybe even a year ago, that not only would I have leveled BST to 40 but I would have done it in five hours I would have told you that you were insane in the membrane.

In the past I never found BST all that much fun. I believe it’s probably due to the fact that it’s kind of slow when you do it solo. However, Smz and I both decided to grind BST together which makes it much, much more fun and interesting. This with combination of GoV, which I hadn’t really tested/used before, made the levels just fly on by. I can’t believe I went from level 21 to 40 in five hours outside of Abyssea. I also can’t believe how much insanity we survived at some points (I remember having five or six bats linked together by accident and yet we survived). BST is pretty awesome when you duo it.

Smz got lucky and got into a party that was doing the limit break last night after I had turned in for the night. So he’s done with the last limit break and is currently level 97. *clap* Congratulations to him! However, I’m still pretty much stuck and screwed when it comes to doing it.

It’s just as insane as it reads, I guess, according to what he was saying about it. Apparently he was killed in two hits before he could even react to what was going on. I’m thinking that it’s impossible to duo at the moment, even if we had two well-geared BSTs. I haven’t even seen any testimonies about it being trioed, muchless duoed. This fact is starting to make me wonder if I should bother grinding BST to 95. Sure, it’d be great to have BST that high for duoing AF3 seals or something, but that’s a ton of XP and time invested (plus having to do a Magian Trial x2 to get those -pdt axes).

I don’t know yet. Guess I’ll see how fast it goes from 40 to 50. Anyone know of any good GoV spots at that level?

Wanting to Come Back

It’s been roughly three months since I last touched FFXI (and three months prior to that one month). When I came back three months ago I basically realized I didn’t have as much spare time as I had thought and only played maybe two or three times a week (most of that was spent in campaign or doing the weekly xp scrolls). But this game is like a drug. And when I hear the music play on my song rotation list, I feel really nostalgic and desperately want to play again.
