Great times abound. An actual LS party! Yapo and Ush played the role of Double Mint Twins. Eli in his lovely gear. Me in my same old BRD clothes. Meena as...well Meena. And frikkin NW in /anon mode as his ungodly high level cook/BLM. I had many other great pictures but that stupid NPC Danzi kept pacing into the frame, thus ruining our erratic emotes. Well at least Yapo was able to bust off one in time for this one. w00t indeed.

Burning Circle time baby. Had to slay dragon for Meena's 2-3 quest. As you can see it was a delightful LS party, everyone appropriately decked out in -25 gear. Got in there, slept dragon, beat up the eye, then proceeded to give the Black Dragon his death certificate. This is my 5th time (outside of my first) killing the 2-3 dragon; and each time is lot less scary and and a lot more fun!

Mission accomplished = no pants time. Eli, Me, and Ush got down to our skivvies, and enjoyed a nice eastern breeze. Meena gets it all the time, lucky cat. Yapo chose to sit the whole thing out, the party pooper.

This was some craaaaazy stuff. Like wow. Totally. Decided to start Mission 3-3 around 2 a.m. and finished around 5:30 am. After the long crawl to the upper floors of the Delky's Tower we all (Eight of us total) got obliterated by a Demonic Doll. (see why!) O M G. It was actually funny watching all of us get hit for over 300 and plopping in our make shift graves. We were all actually cocky about tangling with it, but hilariously so, was panic strickened when we realized that we were in way over our heads.(see why!) In fact we saw a RDM decked out in AF walk away from it, seconds before it aggroed one of our WHM. (Apprently it aggroes by magic, lessoned learned; duly noted) Luckily that same RDM was nice enough to Tractor us to the next room and slowly raise each one of our badly battered bodies. But eventually we got to the RIGHT room (Thanks for the wrong turn into death, Yapo, I know you did it on purpose) killed the RIGHT monster, and assumed our goals. By this time I was so loaded on Revival Root that I blood ported just to get the hell out of there. Rank 4 and 5k for three and a half hours of torture. Great experience.

WTH? Is this really happening, or am I drunk off of cursed soup and the role of pink elephants are played by rouge fuzzy wuzzy ankle biters?

I don't understand where all these guys are coming from. Can you believe, 4 tarus and an Elvaan in a party? Seriously though, you should try it. Do you know how many different "dances" these guys can do with the same set of animations? Throughly entertaining. Ahhh the Dunes.

Check out the pantless wonder, Elijah. Although I can't talk because I'm nowhere near better off either. Ya see Eli was trying to level his 13 MNK, and asked the LS if anyone had a low level jay oh bee to pump up. I thought it was about time to level my pitiful 7 foot lvl. 11 WHM. Since both of us were at a "spur of the moment" moment, we had to get gear. . . low level gear. I ended up spending my BRD song money (which currently I'm missing 4 songs :-\ ) to get at least a Tunic and, present company excluded, some frikkin' pants. Mustering every piece of common sense I could find, I bought it all in Jueno. Smart, huh? (Thank you Bastok, I'll be here all week) Anyways, tele'ed got in the dunes, and haphazardly collected a few xp points. So I ended up rocking my Elvaan boots, a tunic, and I think a pair of crappy gloves. Thankfully my strapped for cash-edness had served me well as most of my low level bard accessories (earrings, rings, weapon) had still not been upgraded since level 10. But getting to check out Eli's gams all day was. . . um. . .cool.

Too bad this was a bad picture, but thankfully I caught it in time to see Marchelute die. There's something viceral about seeing an evil Elvaan get slaughtered. My heart did go out for him, but in this line of work its them or you. I mean, Marchy was one evil shadow guy so I'm sure he had it coming. I know I wouldnt tangle with him. (See why!) Too bad his drops are crud and he only really needs to be extinguished for a quest item. Nevertheless, it's always great to not only see a new NM with my eyes, but also see it get crushed. R.I.P Marchy, I'm sure you would have been hated in Sandoria.

This is an old face that I haven't seen since I first started this game. I met Kron in Bastok Markets when I was, like, level 9. Well after a few sessions (usually the one where he dies) and a few deaths (usually from exp sessions) we used some crazy Warp spell because I hadn't seen him since. About 20 Days of Gameplay time later, he pops up out of nowhere, the same low level, linkshellless, subjobless BLM when we first met. He gives me this /tell like nothing ever happened. "Sup man" Well, I decided to help him out. Today we learned the terms: Zone, Buffer, Aggro, and how to use the map. Many figure eights and about 4 deaths later (The lad is very Gungho) we had to part ways. I promised him we would pLvl later. Later, I think I was unintentionally killing him.

Totally my type. Met her at the Boneworker's guild. Can totally work some Bone in my humble opinion. Attempts at flattery failed, as she just kept continuing her project.

Sweet Orange Au Lait! Forgive me Altana, my thoughts are unclean. But this RSE for Female Elvaans is hotter than Vulkram Dunes. Goodness Gracious Goobue, if each piece didn't cost 40k I would totally be all over it. Well the Male version at least, I don't think I have the boobs to fill it out. Never saw the female version so I took advantage of the moment took a picture. Just for the record she gave me her Linkshell number. Totally not my type.

Best thing about it all though is that an LS buddy came to help. Meet Nightworker (a.k.a Night a.k.a Tworker a.k.a All Around Mook) 41 BLM / 20 WHM. He's was really cool to stick out for 3 hours just for no prize. Plus it was good to peel him (literally) from his Taru Stove for awhile and get some good farming experience under his belt. But in all fairness, he makes a killer Apple Pie. ;P I enjoyed the conversations we had while watching the sun rise and fall, on this god forsaken Plateau they call Giddeus. Thanks again Night! You... umm.... r0xxorz? Elvaan's say that right?

Today was an alright day in Vana'diel. Help a few folks kill the Black Dragon, did some farming, and camped at this NM's spot for about 4 hours straight. Damn this monster! It drops the Monster Signa (albiet rarely)(edit: stats here.) that most people just sell at the AH for about 400k. However, I'm not in it for the money at all, as I need it for my BRD. So after I killed this one and got the ever so wonderful drop of Deodorize (check out that Elvaan sarcasm) more people started to camp the spot. And in turn about 3 hours later, some stupid party that wasn't even there for the NM ("Were here for the BCNM 40 fight" my ass) killed it and ruined the chances for me and about 3 other people. Thankfully the Sigma remained on Hoo Mjuu's bloody, fading corpse. I appreciate friendly competition for NM, it's all fair in game. But If you have no business there and just show up and kill it, that's a bit selfish. But then again, who wouldn't be for 400k?
