That simple. I have no shortage of RL things to do, but am being forced out of my planned procrastination. There's also my FFIX progress. Anyone else?

You have no idea... ahh man I almost want to take a picture of this pot. I didn't even know it was possible to burn the pot SO badly. I'm usually OK-ish at cooking (as in i've never had this happen before). xD

Watched soccer and just replied to all the posts this morning, then I worked out, then went for a walk with the dog. After that I ate lunch and again tried to log in, no luck. Now I'm watching X2:X-Men United, and replying to all the posts that look interesting. Periodically trying to log in.

haha, yea.... happens to the best of us. Dumbest thing I've probably done in the kitchen was blow up a glass baking dish by adding cold water to it. Yea, that didn't go over too well at all

Hm... you bring up something interesting here. I'm beginning to think the pets of ffxiv players have united to take down the servers because they want to see the outdoors. Just a theory though.

Geomancer, spells that do more damage when facing a certain direction, spells that make a sphere of effect around either a fixed object or the caster.

Geomancer, released with the Seekers of Adoulin expansion pack. Rune Fencer was also added with that expansion.

You are absolutely right, my sincerest apologies. When I go buy a pack of Starbust, at least I know hopes won't be crushed due to massive flavor disconnection errors lol

Been messing around with Analogue a Hate Story. Gotta say it's a nice diversion and all the reading is pretty interesting.

I'm enjoying it quite a bit. Oddly enough, I was expecting some heavy culture shock when I first arrived here, but it really wasn't that bad. The only difficult thing is the language barrier of course, but I'm starting to overcome that as well, so now everything else is just... :DDDD

And yay for red text! ^^

You doing the actual draft? Or just setting the presets? I've always been scared before preseason officially over due to injuries. Mine isn't until the 3rd I believe.

Went out to get lunch, now I'm unable to get in again. Sigh. I'm inching ever closer to being done with this - love the game, but the only way to make an impression on SE is to speak with your wallet, which I may end up doing.

They adjusted lower level black magic spells too. GEO is actually kind of over powered at 29... Attainment says I'm cruising along at 9K/hour. That's solo, on leeches in Jugner.

Actual draft, alot of us play in other leagues so it was only open time we had.

Yeah that's what I'm doing. x9 leeches here = 540 exp bonus, combined with Empress band and the fact that GEO can cast a 50 damage nuke for 4 mp.... at chainspell speeds...

At 30 I'll probably bum a key party in Abyssea to 75 or so.

There's a topic. Whatcha drinking?

Side note.... I'm not a 1.0 survivor, so does anyone have a link to the CS before the servers were closed? I'm up to speed on the whole back story (I think),but I've never seen this.
