It started out a lazy Sunday afternoon where Abyssea does not seem to hold any attraction for us. We needed a different kind of distraction…

No, not the kind that Flynne enjoys… It’s Mission Time!!

Still missing that pertinent 108 quipu knot, Wynth poked Flynne and convinced (tricked) him into getting one for her. It dropped on the first Yag kill btw, so it was kinda ..hmmm..

Rolling on the steam of the first kill, it was off to complete the missions for Wings of the Goddess!

After helping an Elvaan get a knot, we met *gasp* the famous Elvaan white mage (or friar as he’s called by the Elvaans) and his pet goblin!

Watching Flynne standing next to the friar, I think that Flynne definitely cuts a better look in his red magery stuff than our dear Friar friend whose name I can’t spell. After deciphering the knot, we discovered that our beloved Windurst is going get ambushed by Yags! Not only an ordinary yag, but the -Manifest- and her minions of masked Yag army!

Cutting to the chase, me and my warrior red mage slave, Flynne had to fight against hordes and hordes of Yag in the first round in order to create a surprise ambush attack on the Yags. Actually, it was all Flynne’s work, he used a dagger and basically Cycloned all of them to death. (I was trying to help, but..hmmm…staff skill not up there yet! 😦 )

The rest was up to these warrior cats! Look at them!!

Naruto makes a surprise appearance as he tries to Rasengan the Yags. (Flynne happens to think its Sasuke with Chidori)

This mission also introduced a casanova male mithra that had all the women swooning! (That’s excluding Wynth! She was so shocked by him sniffing her. See first picture)

The second stage of the missions involve a trip to San O’ria in the past and the meet-up with the utterly gay Dancer called Makyavo

and the appearance of the half-Elvaan and half-Hume called Lilsette! She kinda made Flynne drool.

The story moves into the knight’s invasion into La Vule (Davoi in the present) and we had this gorgeous fight scene between the Elvaan knights and the Kindred!! And we actually saw what a real shield bash is instead of the pansy ass ones that we get! 😦

and look at the JUMP! isn’t it more gorgeous than what we get!? !? !?

We had to fight some stuff again, but Flynne took care of it quickly and neatly! He had to fight a dragon all by himself and his instructions to me were, “Wynth, you stay far far away from the dragon to take care of all the debuffs.” So I waddled to the back and waited and waited and waited… >_< Flynne never got cursed or paralyzed at all! Lucky dhalmel!!

After he was done with the dragon, we had to have awful visions given to us by a Spite Warden, who is one of those Apocalyse Now creatures. Sigh… Life is tough for SE to recycle it.

After that battle, we had a revelation! Cait Sith was not the only one in the world, there were many Cait Siths around!

We reached the part where we had to feed the male cat and unfortunately, there wasn’t much fish for me to continue..so more will be told for the next time.

In summary, most of the missions up to this stage can be soloed by a red mage. Wait, make that a competent red mage. Incompetent ones should just stay at home and stare at their moogles.

Have a Happy Valentine’s Day or a Happy International Friendship Day everyone!!

We don’t really need a day to be friends, but let’s all have fun together! 🙂

Hoppity New Year everyone!!

Haven’t been posting the last few months because RL has been slowly murdering me but…

Here are my FFXI new year’s resolutions (please note title of post):

1. Don’t find a new Linkshell.

2. Don’t try really hard to level my mule.

3. Don’t finsh COP on Eleria.

4. Don’t complete all the nation missions.

And most importantly.

5. Don’t bully Flynne.

Have a great year ahead everyone!!!

What has genkai got to do with Ose? Nothing much really except that the latest genkai involves us killing level 70+ creatures to get something called Kindred Crests. We need 5 of these crests to do the limit break. In our excitement, Flynne and I headed first to Cape Terrigan. The entire place was fillled with people (no surprises), then we headed to Wajaom Woodlands and Bhaflau Thickets… and same situation there. Finally we decided to take a nostalgic trip to Labyrinth of Onzozo to fight the Toramas….

and that’s when I just made a passing comment, “Wouldn’t it be ironic that Ose pops as we are fighting these Toramas?”

And my faithful companion promptly ran to the rock and stood on it, “Ose would pop here.” Flynne proudly declares and then…. Ose popped…

Suffice to say, the first time fighting Ose…Flynne had to escape us before he decided to do what all RDMs do best. Kite and Nuke…so there we were running all over the place kiting and nuking darn Ose…and when he finally died…

Flynne turned to me and lamented sadly, “He didn’t even drop a Kindred Crest.” Orz Ose! >_<

Needless to say, Flynne got his crests first before I got mine in an Abyssea party….and the genkai was simple….it involves… me getting nuked.

Before getting smashed by a Giant Star again…

And having the Magian Moogle “Raise” me….welll I hope the next couple of Genkais would be this simple…but they gotta increase the drop rates of those crests.

Went for my first NM hunting at Abyssea, was late for the event actually but the alliance is pretty sweet. They actually had one of the members give up his place in the alliance for me so that I could get clear. >_< I felt bad about it…but that's why I like to stick with Japanese groups most of the time. I think they are quite generous and open-hearted people! That doesn't really apply to all, I know there are some bad apples in the basket as usual.

So we went to hunt for Brieaus. Probably got the spelling wrong! We waited a long time before we could fight the NM as another alliance was fighting it. When they wiped, I was thinking it was a pretty difficult NM to really kill, but my alliance took it slowly and we managed to kill it! So…yay! 😀

The handsome Elvaan that I got at my CS at La_Theine apparently perished! So sad, so he had an ugly Galka come to finish the quest with me. One NM down, probably gazillions more to go.

At least I had a good companionship.

The summer fest came and gone and we still have the usual Murmor thing where everyone danced with Murmor to get the summer festival items.

This time Murmor came with a friend, the last villain that she defeated and she’s up against 3 bodacious babes:

An elvaan, a hume and a Mithra. Don’t they look very scantily clad…but in actual reality…they are:…..

Talk about major big difference! 😀 An old man is the mithra. Hmm…SE’s joke on the fact that most mithras are played by old men? 😀 I don’t know but its incredibly funny.

It’s been a long time since I saw the line.

Thieves these days are not really aware of “THE LINE”

So it is with utter delight that I present … “The Line”, the wonderful SATA line.

It’s difficult to find a thief who can execute the line swiftly, but this thief is awesome and can do it. It’s a great party!

Thieves should concentrate more on the line. 😛
