In reflection of everything, been about 4 years, 5 months at least since I've been playing the game. I've taken breaks from the game for extended periods of time, but have to say being with a great group of players and making connections in game, it's been hard to get away from FFXI. My friend who recently quit had asked me if I still enjoy the game or do it out of habit and I thought about it for a minute. I really do it out of habit for the most part, as it's just a way to fill a void between free time I have and shit to do. There are times when I don't enjoy the game, when I find it boring, frustrating and makes me actually pissed in real life. One of those nights, could have been last night, but wasn't. Things didn't go well, in a few instances and it probably may have made people pissed, but I think after a while you learn to just laugh at it. While addressing what exactly it may have been that caused the failure. Lately, I've been seeing some negativity in game, which I don't really think is necessary when playing a game like this. Really, when it comes down to it, we all learn at times and it's easy to learn new things, especially in a game such as FFXI if given a chance. Been trying to take a more official supporting member role in LB lately. Find myself trying to lead people, deter arguments or confusion and just offer support to sacs as need be. Going to be starting limbus again, something I've missed after thinking about it. The old group we ran with was great, but lacked numbers to accomplish anything other than the few zones you can low man manaburn so it was difficult to lead. That being said, I can understand the plight that leaders may have in this game when trying to do things on a broader spectrum, such as end game. If people aren't motivated or coming out to events, how do you deal with that? I remember being easily frustrated after what may have been careless wipes or just accidents (won't call them mistakes, because they're easily avoidable). I don't really know why I'm writing this, kind of just sat down and let it come out, but to come full circle, four years and change and finally got a peacock charm!

Was pretty cool. Well, still have to finish MNK to 66. Been thinking about getting a WAR testimony and take on maat and then repeat for each job I get to 66. Sold a ton of useless shit I had collecting dust in my MH today too, total profit, probably like 12k from NPC. Anyways, merry Christmas and happy holidays.

Been a while, farewells ... and funny MTs.

So Sclera quit finally. LB's been doing well under Auron as of late, we've expanded out member base and have been doing events and what not. Lot of funny MT's up there and shit I've been up to. Been leveling pretty hard this Thanksgiving break. Did a few astral burns, got about 30 or so merits and BST from 23-34. Not to mention, finished WAR to 66 and working on MNK currently. I've decreased my Exp to Maat's from 3,080,000 to 2,649,900 this past week also. Going pretty quick, but still have some of the slower jobs to level- aka MNK.

Alright, well here's just some of what I've been up to lately:

Been leveling my Pankration mob and doing the usual shit with Sclera. Made some nice gil lately. The market kind of crashed after the update and Gobbiebag items didn't quite sell as much as people had hoped. We've been running ANNMs lately too and managed to get a Star Sapphire to drop, which ended up being like 500k a person, pretty cool.

Katoke's Tarutaru Day Care Center!

Been pretty busy lately, Sclera and I have been doing a lot together. Whether it be camping KA, to getting organs for Gorgets, to doing hagun ENM, we've been pretty close lately. He said it the best when he said that the game goes a lot smoother when you got a ride or die buddy. Here's some pictures of what I've been doing lately...
Tarutaru Day Care Center!
Tarutaru and 1 mithra, or MANTHRA as Teffy put it. Was pretty good, got about 6 merits or so in that party alone.

Here is Looco showing off his impeccable dying skills while Sclera and I are farming organs.

And here is a picture after I called a GM because it looked like Jokers was holding Ixion, but they managed to actually get people there...I thought it was funny because I was /anon and the GM knew my job z0mgg!! At least GMs still have a sense of humor.

Got a Khroma Ore ... That was a highlight.

Helped Malasia do the Mercurial Kris NM shit, biggest waste of my 2 hour, but Aable gave me 5,000 gil because the Albatross Ring dropped! (100% drop -_- )

Hagun ENM Success. Was a nice bit of cash, was able to fund HQ staves I bought off a friend for half AH price.

Sclera , Fiftygill and I doing KCBCNM.... And Sclera and I hitting the elevator up right as Fifty comes into view LOL. Fun.

That's pretty much what's been going on lately! Einherjar with LB has been pretty cool lately, Sclera got E. Body last Odin run, so congratulations to him, he deserves it. Did some Ixion with LB and stuff, but not much has been going on lately. Term 2/3 is coming to an end here, so I will be having a new and more flexible schedule lately I think, as I only have 1 class everyday from 12:30-3:40 or something. I also hit 4/5 upgrades on Strength in the past 2 days, only 9 more merits to go until thats closed :D. On a side note, I want to see if SCH/RDM can solo KCBCNM, because I think it can. When we did it, I always seemed to have more MP than Sclera and nukes did about the same amount of damage. And now bio homeworkkk....Suuucksss..

Trotter Boots {Mine}

Been busy with LB lately. Doing Einherjar, Ixion, Tiamat, etc and stuff....It's really fun and gives me stuff to do when I log. Also been burning on bard lately. Fin~

I've obtained some cool new titles lately :D Thanks LB!

Yeah, that's right, I got into LimitBreak! Holy crap! Thanks to Sclera and other people who posted positively on my app, it's an honor. Lately I've just been partying with Looco, Sclera and Croxx, leveling BRD and stuff... Was in my first Greater Colibri burn party today and sort of forgot that they linked ... Wiped our party on the first pull, but we recovered and eventually were doing about 16k an hr, I think my highest chain was around 30. Not too bad for first time being at that camp and being level 71 bard. And here is a prime example of our partying last night until liek 4:00 AM .... Looco let our 2004 camp get stolen ... Surprisingly, it wasn't that bad of xp/hr.

Sclera, Stonedsophist and Myself did the Hagun ENM and this is all we got!

Also did the Enhancing Earring and Enfeebling Earring ENM .... Which ended in nothing but clusters... I haven't had any luck making money in the game lately. Croxx, Sclera and I also did a ISNM run for Khroma Ore which ended in Sclera, Myself and Chickem being the only ones who didn't see an ore their run. ..

Oh well, all is well, BRD will be done soon, I can get a shitton of merits and then focus on another job to 75. Also, LB will keep me busy enough as is lately, so that will be fun.

Thanks again!
