Speed Belt!

Not mine though!

Apparently everyone thought we were going to wipe, since we only had 12 people (don't know why since KS99 is so easy...), and nobody wanted to go first! Seeko volunteered, and he ended up getting the speed belt!

Funny thing is I would've totally used my orb first if I actually had 99KS. Last time I had 99KS was like 4 years ago...

Still cool to see a speed belt finally drop!

On the way to the BC, Hoo Mjuu the Torrent was randomly up!

No drop!

This random person (Bigawkward) was shouting that he was giving his Sarameya trigger away in exchange for the normal cerb hide that drops. Since we had a Sarameya trigger of our own already, we took him up on his offer since free chance at haidate!

The second party was so useless. 2 THFs (since our first fight we only had TH3), and then a melee! Should've made them sub /rdm or something and helped me with dispels since they had no healer (and all of us in the tank PT are too lazy to tab over and cure!).

Drops failed again!

I think a few of us are now 2/3 on T4 trophies now, just needing stupid Tyger. We have a few Tyger pop or 2 though I think, so just have to go do it!

Omega is annoying now. Were pretty much guaranteed at least 1 head drop, if not a double drop. Feet also tend to drop a lot, which is the one piece we can't find buyers for. We ended up giving away a pair to someone that just joined the LS(like his first day...).

Also, severe lack of chips. We regularly farm like 5 pods/fight, and generally go 0/5 on any chip drop. We used to go at least 1/5~ before.

SMN update looks cool! I still wish for a new avatar though, even if this is technically more useful. Maybe it'll come still!

Shantotto expansion will probably just be like the 2 previous ones. Not sure why they haven't released the augments yet... Pants was an interesting choice though. If it has any haste on them, it might hurt our homam market. I'll probably turn them into some kind of SMN pants though, or maybe a WS legs pants.

What to do!

I figured I should do an update before my new laptop comes and I destroy the one I'm currently using, so here I go!

I feel like I'm in this weird state. I have no desire to quit at all, but also have no desire to actually play. So I end up just logging on and doing nothing.

I guess the main problem is I feel like there's nothing interesting going on when I log on, and no particular event seems exciting anymore. Plus there really hasn't been any new endgame activites for a while. And I've done everything in the game; except for Sandworm/Ixion(and camping fails so blah). There's an update coming up though, so hopefully that will change and rejuvenate my interest in ffxi! (new avatar yay!)

LS has been SMN burning a lot (but won't let me afk leech like I did for DRK/DNC to 37!). A lot of them are pretty close to Maat's Cap now, and Arc finally got his!

Stuff I did:

ZNMs. Did a bunch of tier4!

Did 2 Tinnins, I think we only got 1 Enkidu's harness. The other 2 drops were crap.

Sarameya! Only did 1 of these. Easy fight as always.

Some more horrible drops!

But Krosis dying and deleveling at the last second=awesome!

Einherjar wipe! This was probably the most fun I had in a while; the boss was a complete (yet extremely hilarious!) failure. Someone actually DC'd after we finished clearing the normal mobs, and we waited around for 10+/- minutes as they were logging back on, since we thought there was no way we could lose to a tier 1!

Cue chigoes owning everyone. I think the BLMs just forgot about the chigoes existing until they actually popped, and then it was too late.

I had a good laugh at the whole thing so I considered the run a success!

I finally decided to spend some ampoules!

And I picked out a moogle hat finally!

COR WS hat!

So with my new toys, I decided to actually do something productive and merit!

Hopefully SE will announce something fun this week for me to get excited about(new avatar new avatar new avatar new avatar new avatar!)
