After we were all hit by the Housing cost news in the patch notes, how did you react?

Botanist 41 → 50
Fisher 31 → 40

Think I managed to farm enough money for a door handle and perhaps one or two panels, by next week I'm hoping to have enough for an entire door ...

I'm not currently in a FC so the announcement of housing costs didn't hit me that hard. I just hope they make the costs something sensible when player housing is released.

I started out the weekend leveling miner up from 36-39. I was going for 40 but then the patch notes came out with info that they were nerfing xp for HQ leve turn ins. So I switched to leatherworker and took that 31-50.

Hm this weekened was spent burning leves for crafting both before the announcement to the nerfed HQ turn in and after. I haven't been at 0 leves in about 3 months. :P

-BSM to 50
-ALC to 50
-LTW to 32
-Purchased AF2 body for SCH and ring for BLM
-Melded my vanya hat of healing and remelded (/cry) the rose gold earring for SCH

Most of the weekend was actually spent making leve turn ins for friends due to announcement as well as doing a bunch of DF Titan and Garuda. DF players seem to have no trouble with Garuda now but plenty of trouble with Titan. I did get my 3rd DF kill on him but that was with a party that had a bunch of relic users.

A lot happening in game right now:

WVR 31-->34
MRD 22-->23

and of course, end-game progressions!

- Beat Garuda, got Garuda's Beak (Spear) on the 2nd try!
- Beat Titan! Of course didn't realize I needed to kill him at the right time for progression for my relic weapon, but I beat that ******* nonetheless and got access to coil even though I'm woefully undergeared for it.
- Beat Chimera and AK, progressed in the relic quest to where I need to fight some beastmen ansd then Hydra next.
- Got my 3rd piece of DL armor and capped Myth 300/300 in week 1 of end-game.

Overall a great time, I am liking end-game so far... not sure why people say negative things about it... I'm having a blast!

Wait, they're nerfing HQ leve turn-ins? Crap... I wish I had known I need to burn a ton of them on WVR and BSM...

They're nerfing the trips, but boosting the singles. I think it said they're adding more options for items too.

Yeah. :( Not sure how much of a nerf it will be. Midgard exploded yesterday. Haven't seen that many people on in a while and most of them were sitting at the turn in guy for the leves in multiple areas.

Here's the snip from the patch notes:

Patch 2.1 wrote:
New tradecraft leves have been added.
New item rewards have been added to certain tradecraft leves.
EXP awarded upon completing certain tradecraft leves has been increased.
Bonus EXP awarded for handing in HQ items for tradecraft leves has been decreased.

It's nice to be able to farm up ingredients for cooking, and to know I'll be able to farm up ingredients for carpenter and weaver later on... but maaaaaan botanist is painful to level, even burning through leves to do it.

Are you using manuals from the GC?

I got everything that wasn't already 50 or 30 to 30 and did all the story quest up to 30 to get my Crown. So that leaves me with MNK,DRG, ARM,BSM, and LWK to get to 50.

Don't really have enough GC points to spend on that - last time I checked I was at around 6K, and I'm saving those up for my next promotion.

Rested bonus is a huge boost, though. I'm logged out in Costa del Sol, and it's likely I won't be back in the game til after 2.1, so I'll have at least half a level of exp boost to play with then.

ARM 20-50

Builder of the Realm (Found It!)

Finished gearing all crafting jobs, sans materia.

Fisher 1-16

I tried to make some gil but the markets were a bit nuts. Did score a few mats for super cheap.

All in all, a productive weekend in game, even after attending 2 RL parties.

Yeah, they are a bit spendy. 2300 seals for the level II manuals. For gathering though, they stack with rested xp. Once you get up in the 40's it's definitely worth having a look at :)

Sort of... I need to go do it again because I didn't realize I had to do the primals in order at the end of the relic quest... so I'll have to go do it again for my relic... but hey, I can go into Coil with too low of gear for it if I want!

Got the crafting & gathering bug for the most part.

*Took Fisher to 40 and Botanist to 39

*Made Buttons in a Blanket, La Noscean Toast, Button Mushroom Saute, and other good stuff for the market (and some for me).

*Got Warrior to 35 (Hello, Inner Beast) through Leves and a trip through Brayflox' Longstop. Held hate there pretty well for a first trip tanking on WAR.

*KOed Garuda a couple of times. Still no feather from that stingy bird. Too bad plume plucking isn't an enmity option.

Turn 1 is not too bad, our drg starts on the first snake and eventually will lb that snake, then will be moved over to the 2nd snake to balance out the difference. Just dodge his cone aoe and stay off the glowing panels and you will be fine. And remember to curb your dd around 75% hit points to a slime can be fed if that is what your party requests. That battle is about your attack anyway, you should be able to do it in full darklight.

If I am on and you need some help with titan, hit me up. If I can find my troops I can get you through.
