MPK'd at Shikigami Weapon fun! w

So today I decided to devote to Shikigami camping as I just got my SMN to 71. So we get there and we start at like 6. This random Japanese player Gaogao decided to MPK us by zoning mobs we were near before we brough Shiki there to have them repop and aggro us. We got it down to 50% and it depopped then, only to have them claim it. So they got the robe.. the damn JP kept calling me mean and everything and I called a GM on them. The GM conversation afterwards helped make me feel a bit better~

Hah, so yea.. Spent the rest of the night getting my MPK'd level back with Faisa~ He's a nice guy...Hoping to try for Shikigami again soon eventually.

Summoner almost done

I've managed to grind out like .... 75k exp in the past day and a half. My summoner now sits like 12,000 to 70. It's going to be cool to have a 3rd job 70+. Anyways, since my summoner now nears end game, I figured it best to compile a list of things I need to get for all my end game jobs

Yinyang Robe - Very easily doable once I can find out the TOD of the NM.
Astral Signa - Perhaps not such an easily obtainable item, however a great way to reduce spaces in inventory at the cost of 1 Perpetuation (compared to HQ staffs)
Nashira Gages - Great item for Summoner's from Limbus. With the Limbus shell I have now and how it currently stands, with regular attendance this item will be mine the 2nd time it drops.

Any of the AF2 pieces from Dynamis would be great too, once I can start working in that area of the game. Suggestions as to what other end game pieces are valuable to summoner would be appreciated.

Byakko's Haidate - One of the most valuable sky items a Ninja can fetch. The haste +5% makes these a viable piece of equipment for any ninja.
Kirin's Osode - Not necessarily needed, but it should increase the output on some Jin's or Ku's.

Basically for my Thief, I'd like to get the remaining Hectatomb pieces and perhaps pick up the Phomiuna Aqueducts subligar body as well as Bravo's subligar. As always, Assassin's Armlets are the ambition of any Thief.

Anyways, I gotta get up for work tomorrow and then do some limbus... Any comments are greatly appreciated :D.

Well recently I have been doing a lot of running around with the new expansion and I have to say that it is so discouraging that you have to run around that much. Also, not only do you have to run around, but none of the zones are the same so you have to find the entrances and such. The mobs are all like level 60+...Just such a weird expansion. So I finally completed Sandy and Windy quests up to mission 3 of the new expansion. I can't express how angry I was just sitting here running through zone after zone after zone...Such a fucking timesink. I completed my Summoner AF recently, kind of cool to have my first mage set of AF.

Also , we did another Omega run with ShutUpandDance Limbus LS and I was fortunate enough to get Homam zuchetto (Head). Relatively useless, but still looks cool. Acc + Haste is kind of cool if you cap out haste.

I tried camping Mee Deegi after maitenance...But some other random Galka got him with no drop. Such a waste of time really, I think I'm going to throw together a BC run to do that and try to get O. Kote and what not. I only need 3 more avatars (including Fenrir).

I has it.

Got Wings of the Goddess today. Been slow leveling in game lately. In between seeking for parties I'll usually jump on avatar runs. So I did Leviathan and Ramuh and the first part of my Summoner Horn AF.

Also did an Aquaduct run for subligar and lo-and-behold, I got the one for SMN. The most useless thing in the world. Nimbus Doublet .. lol. I think I'll stick with those hot panties for now. Nothing new really to report other than that! See you around~

Good Day

So I wake up at like 8 this morning ... To work on this god damn 10 page paper thats due 5PM Friday...And then I decide to log FFXI while I work it. So I decide to eventually hunt my SMN Temple of Uggalepih Coffer...So I head there and die once ... Forcing me to HP I eventually return to hunt the coffer. And I'm there against this lvl 50 JP SMN for like 15 minutes when I spot the coffer through the wall. This was after I told myself... "I'll just wait like until 9:30 AM at least before I leave" and the coffer popped at 9:28 AM.

So I get the doublet and I'm so happy! And then I have class and work ... So after work I attempt to camp the Toraimarai Canal Coffer Key as NIN and it took me like 1,000 EXP before I just gave up. Tonight my limbus shell did Proto-Omega and with much success we got 2 of the worst drops.

So that was overall a good run I spose for the people who were in line for those. Congratulations! Next I decided to go back to Toraimarai Canal for coffer key as Thief and on the last mob I finally got the key...
I decided to head back to Jeuno and help my buddy Bloodjinn do the Magicite Mission 4. We head to Castle Oztroja and I direct him toward the Mee Deegi The Punisher camp because there are a lot of people there.. So we're camping for twenty minutes and it pops!

Big ups to my little taru friend for voking it. Needless to say we didn't get the drop but taking it from Tohmane and Ryskar was fucking way TOO funny. I was lol'ing for about 20 minutes. So I just spent the rest of the night guiding him to the magicites. :D

Summoner AF!

I recently solo'd the Summoner AF BC against 6 saplings to get the legs. The fight was kind of hard as NIN/BLM. Took some concentration and a bit of luck and full evasion set. I also beat Titan again so I can eventually turn that in for the material for evoker's ring. Summoner has been leveling kind of slow. There are a lot of new players out there who really make partying a chore. Underequipped players tend to do that, and recently after Odin got flooded with a bunch of randy's from other servers. Helped Bloodjinn do his Samurai quest too yesterday ,that was kind of fun. I've been slowly selling things off to get money so I can start getting closer to get a vermy.

Well, recently I did some assault with CEC again, Croxx got some piece.
Also, recently took me 3 tries to beat Diabolos. I found out that SAM burning it rather than BLM burning it is a lot more effective.

So I'm walking around Whitegate bored, seeking on SMN when this little dude says hi to me. It's Coejus. Coejus has a reputation for being a pretty respectable player from what I gathered. So he asks me to tag along Nyzul Isle assault as THF, so I do. We did 2 runs, only 1 Denali dropped from 60th I think. After our 1st run they gave me a pearl and we did the second.
On the 20th floor was Adamantoise, which dropped nothing for us. So then we decided to do a ISNM for Khroma Ore. We did 6 runs and eventually I was the only one who got the ore.
That was definitely cool, it eventually ended up selling overnight for 350,000 G, which was great because I was running low on gil. Paladin has been completed to 37 now, making it my 11th 37+ job. According to, only 4.994 million exp until Maat's cap! Thank you Coejus and Croxx and friends for the fun.

Long time!

I guess seeing GrandTheftChocoboo's new blogspot motivated me to write in this. Not much has been going on. I recently got into an end game shell, but haven't had much time to devote to it. I just can't stay in on a Friday night to play video games while I'm in college. I'd much rather be out drinking with my friends, so it's kind of a conflict. So I just level RoZ jobs in the daytime. I plan on getting all the RoZ jobs to 37 before taking SMN to 75. On a side note, I want to say that Paladin is a lot easier to tank with than NIN, I alt tab out and still have hate and barely have to pay attention. The new windower is awesome. I love the timestamp feature, its a nice little change from the old format. The recast plugin is probably the best thing ever invented. Anyways, I'm only about 5mil exp to maat's cap, so I'm going to go back to leveling.
