Yeah unless they put Ramza in one of these I'll likely never get it.
Also only like 30 runs left to get my Battle Bear! And after that, still need 250~ for Battle Lion, but then I'll have all of the tank mounts.

And I submitted a support ticket for the TT NPC that won't show up, but I assume something like that is low on their priorities lies.

It might be, but we'll see. You put in all the steps such as looking up requirements and double-checking your quest log, yes? That really is weird Elaisse isn't marked for you.

I'm 135 tank credits from finished with Gunbreaker's two mounts. Then I can go back to playing War like I enjoy, and not touch Gnb until 6.0 unless the Resistance Weapons require actually playing the relevant jobs at some point. That would suck. *Glares at BLM and SMN, which she rarely ever plays*

Last night I got a couple /shiver emotes, of which I used one and put the other on MB, and a second Speed Belt to sell . . . about a week after I had sold my first one. The emote sold overnight, but now I wait on the sale of the belt. I'm thinking of using the money on a sixth magicite so I have better defense against things in Eureka.

My second Speed Belt sold last night. What's the first thing I did with the money from that and the /shiver emote? I bought materials off the MB, went to Pyros, and acquired a sixth magicite, which now sits on defense. I can already see the difference when some attacks hit me. It'll be even better once I get some Ele +2 gear going, which I'm hoping to get on my way toward a BA clear.

light rampant and adds phase were definitely the points that stalled us the longest

most things in last phase are pretty straightforward and it actually kinda surprises me how we never really mess any of them up since the first day we saw them

Hopefully I can clear 8s this coming week. It sucks only being able to prog one or two nights a week though. 3 days a week 3 people in my group are still doing TEA, and I have no desire to continue with that, and I refuse to pug unless it's with people I know.

And only 10 more credits for my Battle Bear then I'm gonna start on my Battle Lion

Not bad. I still need the gwibers, of which you have one if I remember correctly, and am working on the sabertooth tigers as well as the Hydatos mount. I'm at 115 at the moment. Also, I need and want to clear O8s for the mount. So... hm.

I've sent a thing to Paper regarding FFXI because I saw a deal for the complete edition on the SE store. I happened to have picked the game back up to see if it's half as bad as I remember. It's... Well, things are noticeably different from what they were many years ago, but a couple things still annoy me off the bat. At least the controller makes movement and interactions bearable. lol

The weekly reset in FFXIV just happened too, meaning I have some weekly stuff to do and a few other things to work on. I've a ways to go still on my Frosted Protean Crystals in Eureka Pagos, but that's moving along at least. Also, as Paper and a few other people know, my return to Eureka has boosted the amount of gil I have by a fair degree (I'm now at 212.4 mil gil and counting, even after dropping gil on a sixth magicite).

If yall need any guidance, let me know, because while I am super casual in FFXI, I've kept up with it over the past five or so years and know most of the efficient little tricks they've introduced for QoL over the years. If you know what you're doing, the game's very friendly these days. In general it's super casual friendly and the main hard parts are 1) learning maps, 2) learning controls, and 3) just learning what stuff you actually need to do to progress.

It's always fun to come back for a week, set an arbitrary goal ("I'm gonna finish seekers of adoulin and get that super cool ring!"), and power through. There is always something to do in that game.

Also, windower is godlike. Gearswap taught me lua coding and makes every obtained piece of gear feel like an immediate power spike with a little finagling. Plus higher resolution in general, modifiable frame rate, modified ingame maps that aren't labyrinthine messes, mouseover UI for healing, treasure hunter tracker (it's otherwise buried in battle text)... it solves a lot of the annoyances the game has.

Trusts are a major improvement in XI, and another is that entering a level-capped battlefield will no longer strip me naked if I'm overgeared for it. Leveling is much faster too, not counting the fact I no longer have to sit in town for two to three hours to join a party as a DPS, get to the camping spot, and have the party fall apart after two or three pulls.

My experience back in late 06 and early 07 wasn't a good one. <_<

Ya, the only farming people really do in parties these days is JP farm. And you can keep 1-3 of the party slots as trusts and everything still goes super fast, so the party doesn't just cease to function when the whm has to go use the bathroom.

Levelling a job from 1-99 when you know what you're doing during certain exp events (I think chain 3x exp is going on now right?) literally takes maybe 3-4 hours, a lot of it spent resummoning trusts to rescale their levels or picking up new weapons in an attempt to feel useful compared to these npcs. The CP/EXP rings are amazing too, incentivizing playing for 10-30m every few hours if you want to go that route.

And yeah I am thinking about picking up XI.Just when would I play it? I do not know.

Also, I hear it takes forever to install since it basically runs on a proprietary PS2 emulator.

Not anymore, it used to be REALLY bad about five years ago but it's done in an hour or two now I think.

Five years ago when I first started it basically took an entire day. Now it's an hour or two.

It took me roughly an hour as well, during which time I was in Eureka Pagos waiting for a few NMs to spawn. lol

I'm on Levi server in XI, btw. It's so nice finally getting things done I had never been able to complete so many years ago because people were only about leveling and waiting to level. Now if only getting to specific fields or dungeons was faster than what it is now. <_<

Unity NM teleports help a shitton with that but it's hard remembering where exactly in the map they teleport you to...

I think some ToAU zones were still really obnoxious to get where you want because they're separated into multiple parts in an obfuscating mess. At least the second worst offender, SoA, has like ten maps per field.

I also unlocked mounts this morning, which weren't a thing when I first played. The only riding you could do was hiring a chocobo once you had a license, and sometimes taking a sidequest to race to return a bird to another starting city from one of the three, trying to beat whatever record existed. I think I managed for returning a bird from Sandy to Bastok on Levi shortly before I quit the game. Chocobo breeding hadn't even been a thing yet. So having access to my own mounts to ride across fields will be a big help in addition to most of my expenses being when I need to teleport from crystal to crystal.

I mean I get gear and a Warp scroll from a currency I have more than plenty of at the moment thanks to those side objectives.

Also, May has brought a log-in campaign for which I've logged in so many times and earned points. I spent a small sum of those points on getting the Shantotto II trust since it's supposed to be among the better damage dealers. That will make the leveling side of things quicker too.

I CRIMINALLY underused them when I started until about 3-4 years in. You can set autorun and afk and not have to worry about being attacked, it's amazing.

Yeah she is by far the most absurdly broken trust in the game. Her first-tier elemental spells have the damage of huge nukes, and she pushes them out constantly with no MP issues. Plus she closes her own darkness skillchains fairly aggressively, and is usually able to get two nukes off per skillchain. In fact her only real weakness is that she does so much damage that she'll often take aggro and die, even with tanks that are REALLY good at holding aggro like AAEV or Amchuchu.

Other trusts that are good on that list are Teodor (his normal attack is magical, so he's very good vs high defense enemies), Karaha-Baruha (healer but participates in skillchains), Robel-Akbel (spams aoe black magic but runs out of mana pretty fast), Ullegore (status effects galore and black magic), and Star Sibyl + Kuyin Hathdenna (magic attack and physical accuracy boosts).

As an interesting point, Lehko is still the only male mithra in the game.

I finally have my first Gwiber in XIV (Innocence). 116 mounts and counting.

Another day or two of dailies will get my Allegory to cap for the week, or to more than enough for two Crystarium accessories, so I need to decide if I'm getting the accessories first for my healers or for my Brd and Mch. In two more weeks, I'll have bought all the Crystarium gear I've chosen for my main jobs. I'll do in 5.3 what I always do in odd-number patches, and use Hunts to upgrade all accessories while utilizing the 24man raid's weekly coin to work on the left side. I may buy a few more 490 pieces for alt jobs until a few weeks before 5.4 since I'll want to be sure Allegory and the previous tome are capped for the new tome mats at that time... but that's getting way ahead of myself here.

In XI, I have only just done the quest to raise my character's cap to 60, and then I popped the Unity objective for doing that quest, bringing my Thief to 56. Now to level to 60 while doing such things as wrapping up the last Clay Tablet for that Explorer's Footsteps quest. I'll work on the third LB quest while also doing the second half of Mission 4-1 finally. It's nice being sort of able to do the content at my own pace, though the backtracking to and from the same few dungeons kinda gets old kinda fast (which is why I'm waiting on the mission completion until I do the third LB). Before you ask, yes, I have the key items already. I'd make a declaration about having to do that Quadav dungeon one more time, but I know I'll need to go there to unlock Drk at some point. Ah well.

I have found that wanting prog for one or three phases beyond what you're actually looking for will only reduce the odds of not consistently reaching your actual goal. Like look for enrage prog clears, and you might, MAYBE, get two or three phases behind it on the regular. Indeed, Pick-Up Groups are among the numerous reasons I have faith that humanity will continue to do stupid, terrible things.

Hmm. This is most likely fake, but apparently a leak claims FFXVI will be announced this summer. It is directed by Yoshi-P. It has a large open world with seamlessly integrated cities and dungeons, with a Job system like classic FF, and like a magic and steampunk setting/conflict like VI and XIV. That sounds too good to be true. We'll see.

2.0 story is probably about 100 hours, and maybe another several dozen for 2.x. Also due to the pandemic, 5.3 was delayed indefinitely. Will probably be another 2 months or so.

I also have a bunch of Testimonies for jobs I've yet to level, and at least one I've yet to unlock. It's really amusing.

Actually, something funny happened while playing XI. I was fighting some Yagudo inside their castle when I spotted the treasure coffer in the same room as the last torch I needed to light. Then the Yagudo I was fighting died and dropped the coffer key. I had to doublecheck to be sure it was the coffer key and not the chest one (because THAT has to be a thing). So I opened the coffer with it and picked up an upgrade to my pants. lol
