I didn't see anyone else posting one, so here goes:

I got LNC/DRG to 38, no big woop I know... but considering I have been doing mainly crafting it's crazy I have any fighting jobs levelled at all.

I got Miner to 20, mainly to help level my armorer and get crystals for all my crafting classes.

Got Armorer to 31 - this may be my new main lol... loving the levelling system for crafting and I want it at least as high as my LNC/DRG before I go back to partying so I can make and repair my own armor and put materia into it.

Got Culinarian to 32 - Putting this one on hold for now... focus is on ARM for now.

Got Weaver to 12 - on my way to 15 and then I'll take all ofher crafts to 15 before levelling ARM to 50.

Basically I learned how to use Levequests to get crafting power-levelled and I really learned how to use all of the crafting techniques to get HQ synths a lot more often.

I'm a crafting junkie now, so this is why you guys rarely see me on my DRG anymore.

What did you guys do this weekend?

Got up to Garuda (Hard Mode) for my PLD Relic Quest. Havent attempted it yet, but it is supposed to be hard.

Got my Bard up to 44, pretty happy about that. Almost have it as an alternative to bring to events.

And my Goldsmith shot from 20 to 36 already. Loving it.

Been queing over and over for Cutter's Cry because I really like the Crit+5 gear. Almost have it all now. BLM 41 > 44 by mostly just running Cutter's Cry when the DF popped.

Then, I realized my BLM needed Resurrect so I put my quest/fate leveling on hold for a bit. (I stayed Queued for BLM in Cutter's, but was leveling ARC.)

Archanist > 21, almost there!

When I have enough Crit gear to really do some testing I'm going to check out if the loss of INT is made up for by the Crit+ Gear. Generally in past games, it is much better to Crit more often than to do a bit more damage all the time. Most of the Crit gear (accessories) also have Int, so the loss to Int is small. I'm not at all sure what is available with Crit+ at lvl 50.

LNC to 22 for Invigorate, THM to 15 for my own personal amusement.

And oh yeah..

MNK to 50, finished Aurum Vale, Cape Westwind, Castrum Meridianum, and Praetorium. Flagged up the quests to unlock Amdapor Keep and the relic weapon. Finished final MNK quest for the last ability and AF body (tricky fight, that one).

Next up is a few shots of Wanderer's Palace to try and fill in some gear gaps, then Amdapor Keep to finish up GC requirements. Grab that weapon, and get going collecting tomestones for gear.

Next job is either THM or CNJ... haven't decided yet.

Got MIN about 20 minutes from 30 and all HQ gear for under 3K (score!)

Failed multiple attempts at Chimera (thanks to the ZAM and LWDF folks who tried to help despite the back to back wipefest)

Got two Ifrit weapons (one of which I can use in a month or so), despite some connection issues which got me killed a ton... All but one party was successful.

Myself, (cnj), my wife (acn), and our 7 year old son (mar) did Sastasha with a member of our FC (thanks Fluer (arc)). It was awesome and I was very proud of my son. He's still learning his role as tank, but doing a great job. :D

I crafted my Pink High Quality Heavy Darksteel Armor! So stoked to now start finally seriously focusing on getting Castrum Infinity done so I can get a full set (will definitely dye it a different color when I have a full set, but, for now, it is Pink in proud protest of Darklight:)).

Shakes My head. You Guys are sick. This game is meant for 13+ .
Children means your FC LS w/e is compromised. I will never understand this point of view.

Why is that?

My son played FFXI with me when he was younger... maybe 10 years old or so...

It all depends on the parent and what they are willing to allow their children to see/hear/play.

My son watched PG-13 rated television shows and movies at that age, so I was fine with him playing FFXI too. My choice as a parent, why should it matter to you if they are fine with their child being exposed to the game at that age.

It's not like there are predators in the game waiting for the opportunity to prey upon an unsuspecting child... They are far more likely to come across danger out in the rest of the internet then in FFXIV. And the content is not that bad... I know there are warnings about alchohol use and sexual references... but I have to be honest, I see a TON more on regular TV networks (not even talking cable here) than what I've seen in the game.

Um, the 13+ age thing is due to some extremely mild in-game animated, bloodless violence and drug references that the kid hopefully doesn't even get.

How are they sick for including their child in the game if the child wants to play with mom and dad?

Boggles the mind man, boggles the mind... apparently they think that the weekend accomplishment thread was a soapbox for this issue that nobody else really thinks is an issue.

"Oh my GOD, the children under 13 are being massacred and their innocence shattered because they were subjected to FFXIV: ARR" - said Nobody, Ever.

Leveled Paladin to 35 and kicked Titan's ***. Also got my Blacksmithing up to level 14. I've never been big into crafting in any game, but this is fun (and addicting).

well...arguments could be made for young children lacking the faculties to handle the addictive nature of games like this but I won't be making those arguments, nor will i be commenting on how someone else should raise their kids.


On topic:

-Ifrit's Harpoon
- Some really good DF AK runs (and only 3 runs away from DRG AF2 helm unless i decide to just keep saving, but man this Hetairos Elmo looks so bogus)
-WVR at 31, GSM almost 30
-Darklight body for DRG - No more Peltast Acton! I really like how i'm seeing noticeable effects on my DPS output as i accumulate ilvl60-70 gear
-Brought out PLD to tank Stone Vigil for a guy in my FC who's been having bad luck with DF - since that dungeon is a cakewalk, we got him the clear easy

Leveled all DoH classes to 20. In the process I also bumped fishing up to 26 and botany to 23 while gathering materials to craft. It looks like it's going to be more challenging gathering mats for a few of my crafts so the road to all DoH at 25 might not be as quick.

Leveled archer up to 15.

Just did Sastasha myself (ARC 17; dinged 18 early) even D/C'd (first time for that) and got back in same group.

I figure either I am doing something wrong or just not right level, but...

I find it humorous that I have spoken with Hydaelyn, been praised by the Seat of the First Bow in helping to save the Guardian Tree, was accepted as Emissary by the elementals of Gridania, made Envoy to the other Grand Companies by Kan-E-Senna, spoken with Moogles, may even be a Warrior of Light but don't have enough clout yet to get a retainer.

Ran a bunch of FC mates through Garuda and did one 5 hour Titan with them. They eventually won and we now have a few more people with their relics.

I did a few turns in the coil. I spent most of Saturday wiping on ADS (turn 2) because, well, he's quite a fun fight! Requires coordination from everyone.

Got botany to 20, cooking to 15, and started leveling my gladiator. I think it's 22 now? I'm finding it very difficult to tank! I'll queue for a dungeon as soon as I can get in but will get stuck with players 2 levels higher than me who can rip threat off me quite fast! I hope things get better. :)

Also acquired my AF2 body. Sad it's not extreme purple like BLM AF2 in 11 but it still is better than the pajamas that are demagoguge!

A little late posting about this, but I was sick all weekend long. Nonetheless, while sick I managed to raise my main's archer level to 30 and her Pugilist to 8 (still having a blast playing a pugilist!). Since I want my main's first job to be a bard, that is my main goal for now. It shouldn't take too much longer. I may accomplish it today after I get home from work. I can't wait! Smiley: smile

Afterwards, aside from continuing to level archer/pugilist/bard, I will start to level up my crafting/gathering classes more, as well as any combat class that has skills that will compliment my archer/pugilist/bard well. I guess anything I accomplish in that regards will be for next weekend's accomplishment thread. :)

Edit: I also went through and completed Toto-Rak for the first time and was grouped with some really awesome people who were a tremendous help. I added one of them to my friends list. I might even join their FC if I don't create one of my own.
