Post your weekend updates - how did you get on?!

Sadly, my SSD was corrupted on Friday when I got home from work and as I only had the Windows 8 upgrade (from W7) - I couldn't activate after a fresh install so it took me until late Saturday to get everything sorted out. I'm actually not sure who is better at hiding telephone contact details on their website, Microsoft or Amazon.

Anyway, I made up for it on Sunday!

Leatherworker 30 → 41
Culinarian 37 → 41
Weaver 40 → 41
Botanist 37 → 38

I also got about an hour uninterrupted farming on Karakul before two other people decided it was an offence to let anyone farm uninterrupted, there is just no respect or manners between people now. Anyway, got a stack and a bit which should suffice. Hopefully by next weekend I'll have the title 'Mastering the Hand.' Smiley: cool

During the in-game daytime I went back and forth between Ul'dah and Costa del Sol for a weaver levequest which took me from 40-44. When it became evening I leveled fishing 32-37 by going for fullmoon sardines which only appear at night. Fishing is such a mindless task when you have a controller with rumble that I plan on doing it more often.

Had a decent weekend of it this time! Got a bit more playtime on Sunday than I've had the last few weeks.

Warrior 45-50, and geared straight out of AF into my PLD gear :-D

Fiiinally finished the story! Ran the last 2 dungeons back to back with 5 friends from my FC and a couple of pick ups (and already encountered disgruntled speed runners. Seriously, lemme enjoy the story or leave lol).

Made a bit of gil, wanna buy the ilvl 70 sword as a temporary upgrade!

Had a great weekend. I got back into my old 1.0 account and started a new character. I transfered him from Durandal to Hyperion so I could join other English speakers and got myself up to lvl20 GLA. Going to be logging some time this week trying to get back up to 40 where I left off on PLD and then I need to get all my other jobs back up to where they were. I don't think I'm going to focus on that as much right now, though, as now I know what job I want to take to endgame, unlike before where I was unlocking everything under the sun. I also want to get my crafting up this week so I can start doing melds again. That'll probably not all happen in the next several days but will be a bit of a project.

*Took PLD from 45-47

*Tanked Dzemael Darkhold for the first time. Made it through but I still need some work on timing and such.

*Raised Culinarian from 47-50 after a final blitz through La Noscean Toast and Rolanberry Cheese turn-in quests (Hello Chantico, Militia Knife, and HQ Culinarian's Gear).

*Got Garuda's spine from the bird. Now I guess I need to get 14 levels for Bard to use it.

Hm well this weekend was spent crafting and farming, oddly enough.

Took CUL to 50
Took CRP to 50
Took WVR to 35
Took BTN to 27 or so

Farmed a bunch of phil. item mats to fund it and found a nice niche in the market to pay for the rest. FC downed Twintania again (without me :( ) on Saturday. MNK wep and BRD ring dropped. Did pick up some fancy healing boots from turn 2, though.

Overall, not too bad. Hope everyone else had a good weekend and a great week!

I havent replied to one of these before but I remember the last two weeks of crazy fate grinding..
Last weekend too pld from 15-50
This weekend took Blm 23-50 and Relic+1 my drg and unlocked relic for warrior.. That give me WAR50 DRG50 BLM50 and PLD50.. Oh also took whm from 26-41.. Would have gotten 50 but I burnt myself out and whm is the biggest pain (for me) to fate grind I hate it lol. Also helped a few friends get their relic.

Going to take a break from leveling. super burnt out lol. Need to take time out to fully DL war, pld (just missing 2 accessories) and start working on DL for blm. Hopefully that will last me to the next patch so that dungeon exp is boosted and I can take whm through dungeons to finnish it off.

Side note: It seems (completely my opinion) the the entire area of ccp was nerfed not just dark devices. Fates seem to pop slower then I remember from my first time there. Also its amazing people are so closed minded to working both morh dona and ccp for fates (especially since im paying for teles they could just ride lol). They rather just sit in ccp with periods of downtime between fates killing regular mobs. A guy who who was ahead of me by a level ended up being behind me 2 levels by the end of one fate pt I was with and at 400-500k tnls that's a noticeable difference..

Anywho.. Very productive last couple of weekends!

The last Fate Party I was in before leveling 50 on Monk would always go to the DD spawn area between fates and kill mobs, with a two day rest bonus and a full party I think I got my final level in just under an hour. It was unbelievably fast.

Dragoon 44-48 - almost done with the storyline, very close to joining everyone at end-game (finally)

Carpenter to 50!! Yay!! Byregot's Blessing (finally)

That's pretty much it... spammed a whole bunch of FATEs trying to get there... almost made it... had a bunch of story line solo fights to do.

Mastering the Hand and MIN/BTN to 41. Haven't bothered slapping materia in my ALC or CUL AF yet, but everything else is fairly decent minus being OCD about added CP. But in time. I'll be focusing more toward combat classes soon, a bit torn between LNC and ARC. And honestly, part of this is because making gear for them to SB and convert is less time intensive and expensive than it doing it for BLM. Anyone who doesn't appreciate instanced mining nodes has never needed hundreds of fleece. x.x

I wasn't able to do much as family was in town the last couple weeks. So:

Blue tools for alc and WVR
WHM 46-48
Bot and mining each got 1 level

Otherwise gathered up stuffs for turn ins for 45-50 for gsm cul and ltw

This week I'll be leveling WHM to 49 and then doing the rest of the story and filling in with fates to 50

I'll be leveling bot and min to 46 so I can gather cobalt and rosewood for bsm and asm leves

I tried to farm some yesterday and had to fight off to bots just outside of town.. got 1 to die but the 1 that was porting had a busy sign on and that makes it so you can trade them to get them killed... I can still out farm those bots cause of the delay but some times they were attacking **** that wasn't even popped yet.... anyways if you wanna save some of that fleece you can still use flax that will get to 45 np . There is also a lv 35 leve in Ul' dah that will get you 97k a pop for an hq item (good amount of traveling tho) but the materials are simple and it still uses linen. Then there is a lv 45 leve in Ul'dah that makes you travel to Mor Dhona but you get 155k per Hq lots of travel but you get plenty enough gil back to make up the difference



And my accomplishment was basically finished up my DL set and got my Relic + 1

Was spending time with family this weekend, I got very little in game accomplished. I am in one of those situations where it is important for me to spend less time on the game.

- Took armorer from 13 to 27
- Got very lucky in turn 2 and received the allagan casters bracelet.
- Purchased the Hero's Choker.
- Converted an aetherial ring into a piety materia IV. Love it when that happens.
- A little stronger, a little better. Almost downed turn 4 on Friday night, it really is a mechanics issue. We can take down the second to last dreadnaught before the last one spawns, so the dps is quite sufficient. Well, maybe next week.

I had a wisdom tooth taken out on Thursday so I had an excuse to do nothing but play video games for four days straight, in between moaning in agony. Now I have strep throat on top of it. I can't catch a break.

Conjurer 40---> 41 - Unlocked Stone Vigil and tried running it. Our DPS kept dying against the last boss and I don't have Swiftcast yet so raising them was out of the question. WHM Limit Break only raises bodies at level 3. Soooooo....

Thaumaturge 13---17> 9 levels go to til I can proceed on conjurer again.

I spent a very productive weekend crafting like mad, too.

Weaver 1-25
Leatherworker 10-15
Goldsmith 1-15

Alchemy is next!

I helped with Titan runs for one of my LSes Friday. Spent Saturday with the hubby. Sunday I capped my myth and started a new character that I leveled to 11 gladiator. Don't ask me why I wanted another character, I don't know.

A whole lot of nothing this weekend. LTW to 50 and got the Allagan Body piece for my DRG (after I already bought the myth piece...). No biggy though, hopefully it'll be worth lotting on after they bump the ilvl to 95.

We were making about 360 a kill before the chain bonus.

Accuracy was a problem for me holding hate, I tended to whiff about half my swings. It would have been a lot better at around level 40 I think.

Really it started out spontaneously. We came to Wineport to do FATEs since we wanted a quiet spot away from Coerthas, and we were goofing off in between them and noticed the Garleans outside the Castrum. One thing lead to another and we ended up with about 2/3 of a level in 30 mins or so. Then it was WP run time.

I'm thinking we might go back.

Finally beat Coil turn 4, was surprisingly easy once we tried a different method. Rather than kiting Soldiers/Knights, etc., we just had our main tank hold the 2 Dreanaughts while we burned all of the adds on the last phase.

For the rest of the weekend I basically just farmed up Fire, Water and Lightning shards inbetween a few LoL games. The new game mode (One for All, I think), is pretty silly.

I logged in for about five minutes and logged back out. As much as I love this game I'm just turned off by some of the people at End Game. Watched a fight break out in Revenant's Toll (started unfortunately by a ZAM FC Member) over a Speed Run Gear Requirement for AK.

People still get bent out of shape over this? Not you, but the people arguing in Rev Toll.
