So how was everyone's weekend?

I decided to do the ARC/BRD quest finally and got the BRD AF (not easy on the eye at all) and am half through the LNC/DRG one (my last 50 from 1.0 to catch up on). Took Alchemist to 30, mined a ton of darksteel for Militia gear and had 5 failed DF attempts at Story Mode Garuda. She is fast becoming my CoP Airship fight. Smiley: mad

Got past, garuda HM, and even got the weapon, then fell flat on titan HM, all weekend. I did get fishing up to 42 tho, got accused of botting during the process which is funny. Other than that not very productive on the relic front, maybe this week will be better.

I went overboard to prep for leveling alchemist and spent several hours gathering mats for the level 25 hi-potion levequest. This took my botanist from 28-29 and left me with a stack of HQ and several hundred NQ for each item in the recipe. After clearing 21-25 in Ul'dah I went to Quarrymill and began the triple leve turn in starting with all HQ mats. My original plan was to stop when I exhausted all the HQ materials but I learned that I reached a point where I could get HQ reliably off NQ mats so I kept making hi-potions and turning them in. Took my alchemist from 25-45 with just that leve. I still have more materials which I estimate could take me to 50 or at least pretty **** close. The only reason I didn't continue was because making nothing but pots for hours on end was becoming mind numbing and I started messing up my crafting rotations. It looks like alchemist will be my first level 50 class though.

Other than that, I did manage to take miner from 26-28, weaver 32-33, and blacksmith 25-26 at the start of the weekend before I went on my alchemist leveling spree.

Where to begin...

First I had a bit longer of a "weekend" then most, we took Thursday and Friday off to do some Fall "Spring Cleaning" at our household, and took some time to play FFXIV too.

I got Miner to 50 and started mining Gold and Darksteel Ores (and since I have Goldsmith and Armorer both at 50 already I craft those into Nuggets for bigger payout.)

Took Leatherworker from 20-33, getting ready to run it to 50 this week so I can make pretty much every piece of armor between me and Crystal Light (She's got Weaver and Botanist at 50).

Not much else really, got Dragoon to 41... slow progression on the battle classes, been mostly crafting/gathering. Not to mention with all the drama I keep reading about as far as end-game gearing I'm in no rush really.

Me and the guys managed to down Titan HM all by our lonesomes. Nobody had relics save for me and a BRD buddy, and we both did ours the real way (i.e. we didn't pay for a run).

Picked up a random WHM (2 whm, 1sch run) with me tanking on my 7500 hp WAR. Lost a DRG to Landslide shortly before the Heart phase on our third attempt, but it was forgiveable because this was his third attempt on Titan total, what with him having just hit 50 hours before. We proceeded to 7-man Titan like a boss, and put him down with nary another death.

Had a few close Mountain Buster's, but my WHM buddy made it his personal life mission to keep Stoneskin on me before MB came, and our BLM, SMN and SCH rotated Virus perfectly to keep Titan debuffed. Between Eye for an Eye, Virus, Stoneskin and Sacred Soil, MB would sometimes hit for as low as 1800.

It was glorious.

I got DRG to 32 from 27... And not much else. However, IRL I finally unpacked the rest of my boxes... I moved over a year ago ;)

Got lucky and hit that 10% off of my lvl 55 spiritbonded craft gear and got a few IV Materia.
Sold the IVs for a hefty profit, also made a bunch of rings and sold them (in turn spiritbonding more items).

Took cooking from lvl 15-37. Took GLD from 28-30 and got PAL stone. Leveled archer 15-16.

Payed 310k out of pocket and bought a Vanya robe for my BLM. Dyed it purple to match my +1 stick.
Quint melded the robe with crit hit (in a III, III, II, I I order because I am cheap)

Payed 350k out of pocket and bought a Vanya hat for my BLM. Dyed it purple to match my +1 stick, then hid it because my relic sticks through it all unrealistically.
Quint melded the hat, first with a Determination III mat, but botched it because I didn't realize the Determination skill was capped. >< Since I was already screwed, and I know in a week or two i'm getting the AF2 hat first, I decided to experiment with spell speed. Since I dropped my gear with spell speed in favor of Det and Crit items, I have noticed that while I crit often and my astral fire III hits for 1k+, I am casting at turtle speed. ****** me off really. Like mad at demon wall because my first fire III takes 15 seconds slow. I dropped another Crit Hit III in the second slot, but I put a spell speed II and two I's on the 3rd - 5th slots in the hat and now with the +8 my casting is still slow, but bearable.

Downed ADS and picked up the Allagan caster's Gloves. Yaay Rot!
Hopped and dodged my way through Turn 3
Learned the ropes fo turn IV and got to last phase several times.

I need one or two more AF2 and a few more allagan pieces and I'm all set for the dreadnoughts.

So over the past week.

Crafting 30-35 (a couple at 36, WVR and CUL at 37)
WHM 40-43 (completed final hunting log for WHM and GC Hunting log #2)
BTN & MIN 32-36
FISHING 32-34

Once I hit 35 FISHING tonight, I'm going to be farming up shards and boarskin for a day or so and then I think I'll have all the mats I need for pushing crafts to 40ish, though I may need more steel fixin's. Then want to level up WHM to unlock Garuda and the level 44 dungeons. :)

Hm I didn't do much this weekend. No coil turn 5 attempt because tank was on business trip. I was a little disappointed because it looks like Twin was downed by BG last week. Turn 1-4 last Monday didn't drop any DPS caster stuff. Buncha happy WHM/SCHs and our first melee item (a belt!). The MNK was happy.

Obtained Veil of Wiyu on SMN (#4 for me)
Geared up my SCH all the way
Unlocked BRD
Unlocked LNC
Did a bunch of Titan with Arch and co.

I think BRD will be next to 50. I am getting worn out with the philosophy tome grinding, though.

Hope everyone had a fun weekend and has a good week!

Was a slower week(end) for me due to RL being what it is. Some frustrations try to sell crafted goods while doing the price tweak tango. Capped my tomes, at least, and snagged a couple levels in weaver to both spend some leves and get that a bit higher. Need to best decide how I want to push from 40-50 there, but farming lightning shards is most definitely my future. Blah.

I heard that someone beat it. Apparantly the Axe dropped. Not sure what server. Caster gloves dropped off of ADS for me. My first piece. It made me happy. Good luck this week on your drops Hitome!

Aww the axe...I'm sure that must've been a let down. lol

I'm so glad you are seeing caster loot outside of accessories! I saw the boots the other day but passed to a SMN friend because he's going away to boot camp soon. Thought it'd be a nice going away present. But they were so shiny. @_@

I have a BLM friend in another shell who hasn't seen any caster drops. I'm not liking this RNG business! His BRD is decked out, on the other hand. haha

Good luck to you too this week. :) Hopefully you see some pants or boots!

Completed Titan HM with my FC, took three tries but we got it. I finally experienced what everyone was talking about as far as latency issues, I was getting hit by plumes that I couldn't even see.

Anyway, with that I ground a few more WP/AK's and got my relic bow finally. Feels kind of weird having only 2 Dl accessories and the rest dungeon gear and wearing a relic.

Went on my first "real" speed run, that WAR was a pulling machine, Was a lot of fun but pretty hectic.

Now to start the grind to get all DL gear. I have 600 myth tomes and will have the +1 bow in a few days :)
Edit: I also have a 50 WAR and I am SOOOOO glad for that, I can get instant queues for dungeons while building tomes :0

My first two WP runs were wins. Sloppy but wins. Was all set to run WP all day Saturday after that but while waiting for DF I fished a river.... rest of the day before company arriving was spend hopping every zone location looking for places to fish.

Hopefully I'll get in several more WP runs tomorrow before I leave off for my New Orleans Halloween vacation! Can't wait!

I ran GLA up from lvl 15 to 30 over the weekend using nothing but dungeon runs and a fate here and there when I couldn't get a dungeon. Got all my gear outta them that I completely forgot to do the lvl 15 20 25 and 30 quests for GLA... so did those in sequence and then unlocked PLD. Then topped him off at 31, topped WAR off at 31 and WHM to 32. Slowly my one woman army is taking shape. Someday I'll go back to finish my story... CM awaits.

Was sick most of the weekend, so I took it easy and just gathered/crafted.

Did carpenter 30-44, and am very tired of Walnut Macuahuitls by now, but I can HQ them in my sleep at this point. :-p

Beat Hydra. Ran AK and bought another Dark light piece. I still need quite a bit.

Converted a TON of materia from gear that was lying around. Mostly crafter gear.

I decided that although crafting is pretty fun, its just not for me. I'd rather just gather, fish and level my battle classes.

I leveled GLD for flash, to use on my MRD (16).

I ran satasha today with my MRD and it was pretty hectic, but only because there was a renegade ARC.

I might stick with MRD to take a break from MNK, but I don't know yet.
