Aegis get!


A HUGE thank you for everyone that helped me in the process, from the harvesting (sillycheese and Col), to 4am dynamis (roo, SK, and others), to my LS helping me finish the final stage (/bow)...very long term goal achieved today! Thank you all so much!

Too many to go~~

Holidays have been a "slow time" in FF, well, sort of. I've been playing more because I have been snowed in for over 2 weeks, and I'm going NUTS...

Showing off some new bling~ From the Holiday Event, and the moogle shield from Fanfest...The shield is nice, have yet to have it turn me into a moogle though.

I meant to post this a long time ago, but I forgot...lol...but its a nice pic, thanks Kuma for making it!

Grats to SB for getting his too~

Did some mazes...not quite sure what to think. Part of me wants to believe that I can get "superior synth results" on stuff other than the harvest and craft mazes..I really hope so. Right now, I have about 300 marbles, and farm them whenever I can.

Random death shot of the month. Dunno what happened there, seemed like sneak/invis wore without notice!

Another maat job down!~ Yea, been 75 for a long time, but used this test so I could get some more inventory space to level...you guessed it! THF...57 and counting now. Its fun to MPK your party members with SATA, really, but that job isn't going beyond 66!

Finally seeing some progress on my Burtgang. Feels like it will take forever.

Thats it for now! I'm working on a few secret projects RL. May post more later~


Yea, its snowing here, and bitter cold, hasn't been above freezing for 3 days, and no end in sight...its supposed to start snowing again tomorrow. I hope I get my Christmas Shopping done before then!


- Went to fanfest...actually drove down with Taroo and Chillem...it was pretty fun...and I still can't believe that Chillem forgot to bring pants...seriously...forget underwear? well, I guess...but pants!?!? Was great to meet Ice along the way (thanks for letting us sleep on your couches btw!), and the trip was just fun. Finally got to meet Bobbq and Zan as well!

The moogle shield is cool! And, I can't wait to fight the battles.

Managed a few HQ's...this one and Blessed Pants +1 (which I can't find my pic for ;;)...

ahhhh there it is!

Managed to pick up 5/5 whm af..thanks CG...also got my first relic -1 af...haven't gotten the +1 yet, but a first is a first! Deathga has been happening in dynamis - mainly because stuff pops while we are in dyna, and 1/2 the linkshell goes, while the other 1/2 loses attention for a while...oops!

Ahha! My evil plan worked! Manged to kill a few friends along the way. I think this was doing an assault. Picked up a few tier 10 reclears, so I'm about 20 short of turning my papers in.

Sooo happy to have SB back and in the same linkshell! I missed him while he was on vacation and his little RL taru is so darn cute! AND, OMG, I spotted a Ghoul and a Bishup! I thought they were lost forever to WoW (Ghoul), and RL girlfriend (Bish). Hope to see more of you guys!

lol..wish I could get skill up always, then it would be capped.

I can't wait for new event. I missed the boots last year, because I was on the Taru tour...Santa taru is always fun...

Will post pics of my holiday baking when I finish it. I hope to mail the baked goods on Monday, and the gifts tomorrow....I hope...the weather he is horrid.

Pre-Holiday Update

Thought I would give a brief update before holidays and fanfest cuts into my time! My family celebrates Thanksgiving the Sunday before, so thats this Sunday! I have a lot of pies to make before then! Anyway, on to the update: 


Waited for a friend, and we finally started on the missions. I really hope we can do the BC before the next update! Was nice to see Heaven's Tower in the past, its one of my very favorite places ingame.


Spent a ton of time in Caedarva, waiting for my lion! One of my ls mates said they didn't notice that Khim had a collar, then didn't believe me when I told them that Asy put it on him!  LS also managed to claim a few Faf's and Nid's - we have been lucky with 2 ridills in the last 4ish months.

Did quite a bit of sea farming - mostly for chips. For some reason, we have stupid good luck popping Temp that way...Good for triggers, bad for my buffer. One I had to hymnus hold while someone changed to pld...we had better luck with temp than we did with chips! After this next burst of sky (orz...), we go back to sea for ix's.

Managed to pick up a few items...Happy to get WHM body - its very pretty as far as I'm concerned, and I like the change in looks from Aristocrats. We got sort of lucky in Salvage, but no QQTH drops yet! (*cross fingers*)

Finally got a break from the normal NPCable crap from Nyzul. Grats Zan...now you have to level something to wear them!

And, yes, I finally finished AN, haven't yet gotten my earring though. Can't really decide. The PLD earring is tempting, but so is the BLM one!

Hope you all have a happy and healthy Thanksgiving, and enjoy the holiday season that is December! No matter what you celebrate, or what your beliefs are, hope this time is filled with love and peace...and good cookies.

How did I miss it????

My favorite author died on November 4. I can't believe I didn't hear about this on the news. I will miss Michael Crichton...I loved his books..yes, some more than others, but I did anticipate each and every one. I loved the way you researched so much, and most of your books were so carefully crafted, I could see the research behind every word. I am saddened to see you go.

What I didn't miss

Top Chef New York Premier! I'm excited about the return of my show! I hope it brings people I can root for like last season's Richard, Stephanie,  and Antonia. I never have favorites until episode 3 or 4, so we will see where that brings me. I can't wait.


Since I first saw this 2 years ago.....yea....pics say it all!

Thanks all for the hard core camping, hustle to claim, and what was a very nicely executed low man battle. I'm so happy, yet still almost speachless! Camping on my main was certainly trying, yet I know I should not complain, since quite a few had worse luck than me. Just glad I can sleep in longer than 45min increments now when window is open....OMG so awesome! Now I can come brd instead of trying to dualbox pld and healer lol...


I would be lying if I didn't admit that a HUGE part of me is just glad the damn campaign is over. No more stupid adds, no more 7am phone calls...and yea, I didn't vote. First time since I registerred on my 18th birthday. I don't know what that absentee ballot was made of, but it stunk to my cat so much she buried it in the litterbox.

Busy taru is busy

Lately ingame, I feel like I'm busy all the time, yet when I stop and think about it, I feel like I have accomplished nothing. I'm sure its just me....

Anyway, on to the update -

Aegis Update - 1748/7000 - thats just shy of 25% complete on final stage. I'm starting to get impatient, but I know sponsoring dyna is about the only way I would be reasonably be able to finish. I was right about my prediction for post 500k/dynamis coins - they haven't really gone down in price, yet they seem to be much less available.

Mulage - HUGE THANKS go to SK and Wheel for capping xp on Sebby. His experience seems to evaporate.

Burtgang - 7/50 assaunts redone, 64k/100k for eyepatch, 65k/150k Nyzul Tokens. I need so many alex, its depressing. I'm not quite sure what to think about needing all tier 4 triggers...I don't mind doing ZNM. The problem is, well, my luck sucks, as in horribly sucky. I managed to get to tinnen with zero oracle drops (and it didn't drop oracle either). Also managed to get past tier 1&2 for the other two with zero drops as well. This is WITH thf. I'm hoping they will announce soon reducing alex to 10k (or increasing drop rate) as well as giving you 100% drop rate if you have Mythic Weapon quest open? That would be nice. If it weren't for the horrid alexandrite drop rate, I could be done with Burtgang by February.

I did some server transferring of mules to make some gil. Managed to do reasonably well. I kept witch sash/wise strap for myself to test. It makes a pretty big difference. Its most obvious when they are used together, but it was nice to have the occasional 1100+ thunder 3. Wish I had screenshotted the damage, thought I did, but I didn't :/.

Speaking of damage, this was kind of fun...well, except for the roar that immediately followed.

Managed to get Homam legs. With the exception of swift belt (since I sold speed), I'm done with my PLD haste set.




Did some Sea and Assaults. At least I'm dying equally on all jobs! Don't have a good picture, but I started Salvage again as wel!

I have wanted this ever since it was available. Finally found someone to craft it. Have synth mats for one more. Its so pretty!

Yay! Finally. I really think the crafting levels are wrong on some of the cursed stuff. Oh well, just means people pay higher prices.

Random Wanderings~

Aegis Updte - 15/70 coins. Seems to be quite slow, but since I don't really buy coins, what do I expect? I hope to complete by the end of the year, but we will see!

I decided to raise another Chocobo, since I scewed the last one up. I'm hoping this one goes better. Need to raise intelligence w/o compromising strength/endurance. I'm fairly certain she will be blue, since both her parents are full blooded blues, at least I certainly hope so.

Snagged Medusa title. We went in with 18, which I thought was risky, but we did it. Wiped after our two tanks died fairly quickly after EES killed one, but we managed to reraise and pull it off. I think we spent more time getting to the BC than actually in there. Was an amazingly fun battle.


With that title out of the way, I was able to start my Burtgang quest. I'm not so sure how to track my progress, so here goes - 1033 alex, 55k ampoules, 55k tokens, 1/50 assaults redone. Kind of at a standstill now with alex until I make some more gil, getting to the dangerously low level. Kind of crappy that you have to lose 5 inv spaces while doing this quest >.>.  I have decided to turn the alex in last, just in case speculation is correct and you don't have to have all of them. I'm not convinced of that, but we will see.


Been camping toau and tia pretty hard lately, its nice having a second account. Wish I had pld leveled on a mule, but asy's 60-75 isn't going to happen.  This is a picture of our latest tia, no drop on this one after we went 3/3 on previous ones. I got gaitors! WOOT! Felt nice to be able to lot them.


Random death shots for the month.  Had a couple ore, but can't seem to locate them.

Between ls events, making gil, and being sick for over 2 weeks, thats about all I have been doing.  My RL friends and I are going to Fanfest (I think).
