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.
