Ok so I was a bit bored of repeating the levequests with the Dodo's at DryBone....

Having levelled to 13 and only then realised sacrifice is a heal spell :

Note to self : read spell descriptions better.
Second Note to self : just because BLM didnt have a heal (unless/whm/rdm) doesnt mean THM is the same.
Third Note to self : read the spell descriptions again, just in case you are too thick to realise what it said the first time.

So after 13 needless to say my levelling was faster now I had a bit of surviability. To be honest heals are overrated.. I'm hardcore! not.

As I was happily bashing through stuff, I got back to Dry bone at lvl 16 and did two levequests on Band (the 2nd difficulty) and breezed through them. Now I knew I had Dodo's left to do, so thought what the **** and went Party difficulty.

Well that was stupid. Get to the camp all the Dodo's are red. Dammit that did not go to plan.

Needless to say I had been stupid enough to activate favor as well so no way I was going down without a fight.

First two dodo's was a mess, but I finished one of with a sliver of health. Came back from camp and was waiting for weakened to wear off when I mistakenly hit the second one when I was just wanting to check my timers

Fourth note to self : Disengage target before pressing offensive spell to check timers when weakened.

However through some stupid luck I managed to kill it whilst still weakened. Go figure.. THM for the win.

On to Dodo's 3/4. Now I had learnt something. So better prep and it all goes to plan. Strike off two more birds, THM on 15 health at the end but an epic win for me.

Ok times running out, we are down to 15 minutes, my Barbs is on cooldown... cmon!

Dodo's 5/6 : Was going really well, had saved the TP to finish of the runner, and hes off and running in flee mode... I chase cant quiet get in range and then luck would have it I got the shortcut right and catch up... bamn take that damnation to the head....

epic fail it misses

The levequest target appears

noooooo dodo's 7/8 turn up. Spam that key kill number 6.

Yay 6 down. And I'm in camp with 10 minutes to go. Ok back to the dodo's I can do this I know I can.

6 minutes left and finally I'm ready to take on the last two. Lets say it was close. Ok lets say I was down to 5 hp and finished off the last two with an epic sacrifice and win the day.

Total reward 10k gil.... meh

Feeling of achieving it solo.. over the moon.

The morale of the story... do something stupid today and you never know how it might turn out.

PS If you see a large creature and a dead THM on the floor by it, its because we have a tendency to just fire at anything just because we can.

Lol sounds like you are having fun times with the class. Can't believe you didnt know about Sacrifice until 13! Anyway I like the sound of this post - can you put it in the THM forums? Would be nice to start off a thread there and maybe more people will post?

Methinks it's better suited to the general forum...the morale of the story applies to all jobs, after all. :) Plus it lightens up the mood of this board.

Thank you for sharing your misadventures OP! Brings back memories of my own noob days. :D

Yeah good one :) It is as good as my husband.

"GOD D@MN 1t!! STUPID TARGET THINGIE! TARGET THE QUEST MOB NOT THE STUPID GRIND MOB!" XD Oh I laugh every single time XD Good thing I play CON main...I'm always having to spam Cure on our butts because he still hasn't figured out how to work the target system well....

HOwever, I will say the target system is a bit cumbersome and needs some work :)...but still makes for funny times :)

Cool no problem putting it in any forum, whatever is appropriate and what the community wants I say. I was just thinking that the THM forum (which gets a little serious sometimes) needs something more like this to reflect the fun of the job as well as the serious side :)
