New video as promised. Full Coil T2 run, using the newly 0 click strats. While I like this because it’s basically impossible to fail, I still don’t mind and already missing the old method, with AIDS spreading and tactical formations.
I was supposed to upload a 0 click T2 video but yesterday I spammed such splendid Garudas I couldn’t wait to do that instead. I was on scholar this time! Have fun watching this play through of a healer who eventually forgets to take cleric stance off.
Been a while! 2.1 happened and of course I have been busy with new contents and catching up with some stuff. Everyone knew this patch was going to be massive but I could never imagine it would have been THIS massive.
I still haven’t managed to beat everything, EX primals left, and I’m having so much fun! But let’s try to get some order here.
Leves. I’ve said before I am slowly becoming an avid crafter. I managed to burn all the leves I had to reach Leatherworker 1-42 in a single day. On a HQ trade-IN, 40k loss. Not so bad, not so good. I guess it will just take 10-15 more leves but still doable. Maybe SE didn’t like much people exploiting the system buying materials and such. Anyway just two crafts and some cooking levels left, I will probably finish up that one sometimes soon!
Still regarding crafting and such, I tried making my first Two Star★★ recipe. I didn’t aim for HQ or anything. Was just some kind of new weapon for Kerb to help him on the way on his relic and tried to get him the better version of it!
Having no Steady Hand II and Carpenter/Goldsmithing skills made it little trickier!
But here it is, a pair of Avengers in their glory! They look SO COOL in game (I forgot to take a screenshot there, duh!) – it’s like two big shiny bricks to crush your enemies with!
Kerb got MNK 50 while ago on his character and we can finally start doing things together again. That means spamming some dungeons for myths (supposed to get an http://xivdb.com/?item/6090/Argute-Gown today!, can’t really wait for it.)
Kerb and I chillin before killing story mode Garuda. I’m starting to like his Galka.
As mentioned before, I got Copperbell/Haukke/Pharos clears (easy stuff here) as well with Ultima (lost lot on healing belt -cries-) and Good King Moggle. I’m currently trying to set up a group of friends and go through the new Extreme mode of Primals for Weapon Quests and why not? Maybe some farmings here and there, my BLM and SCH will sure benefit something off them. And FUN!
The new dungeons are nice, and I definitely love Haukke and Pharos on par. I wish they would have used Siren as primal instead, but the fight is interesting enough even tho I still have to try it as healer, which it looks painful enough. I actually tried PS on day one but we got beaten so badly because we all had no clue how to work out with Zu and ended up running out of time.
Ultima was interesting. It’s definitely an easier fight than Titan Hard in my opinion, even tho the last set of balls might be a little tricky. A bit annoying on BLM for the second set of lasers since it requires a lot of movings; I just gimp out for few secs and scathe until three of them or so are down.
King Moogle! I LOVED IT. Love. It.
Not being a Legacy player, I totally had no clue about this fight. I went with couple friends and just had them mark stuff to kill. You know. I don’t like reading/watching spoilers if I can (that’s why I’ve been trying doing hardest fights first, when no one has a single clue about what the hell is going on, because, why not!)
This track is an obvious rip off of Nightmare Before Christmas “This is Halloween” – so obvious it even keeps the same structure and musical rhythms and everything. I could do the fight over and over, too bad every single party I’ve been doing fight with, does it completely different every time!
And when I tought I was about to be done with this post, I realise that another biggie is missing: Crystal Tower. First run on day one was terrible. Wipes at everything, people who had filters and/or no clue about Alliance chat, melees fighting at the polar opposite of the ring (spamming this as Scholar because I need hands and feet so badly – gotta love the crits on there!)
This update was FANTASTIC. I missed some stuff and would like to write more things here, like Hildebrand storyline and my thoughts about Housing! I would have loved to post a new video (a no rot/zero clicks T2 ADS) but I forgot to start Fraps up so it’s a no go this time.
Aestetician was sure something I’m loving. I just keep changing hairstyle even though I’m currently sticking with the one on the left side of above picture, it really recalls my old character on XI with no mods. I miss that little girl. I hope they are going to implement more hairstyle soon, crossing fingers to get my old fluffy pigtail back!
We managed to complete this round! I am still goofing around way TOO MUCH especially with targeting and random panic moments, but I decided to upload our win regardless because besides my errors it went very smooth.
Next time will be better, since we got the best strat and like I said before, the one fucking up things was me! Oh well!
I managed to improve my DMG a lot by getting some new pieces of gear and actually using food. I had all those Myths lying around for a good while and wasn’t sure how to spend them. I was supposed to get Sorcerer’s pants but moved on some new jewelry instead.
All that crit really made a difference. I am used to run a parser as soon as I log into the game (which it means I’m gone wild into this game, like with FFXI) and I got a very nice surprise!!
I’m not going into further details but doing 21% of overall damage with 267DPS considering my little mistakes is definitely a very good result! I can’t wait to become a full-fledged BLM again, like the Golden Days in the previous SE’ online game. Can easily outDPS Ifrit Hard Mode!!
Of course we couldn’t wait to take a peak on Twintania. I died first. Mostly because I -even now- have no clue how it works. I didn’t care spoiling myself of some fight I couldn’t even attend. But my new homework for the next few days is knowing everything of it!
It kinda scares me but there are new clears among all servers each day it passes. WE CAN DO IT!
I wish I could livestream some attempts or something but sadly my upload bandwidth is so shitty it won’t allow me to do so with online games. I tried but I lagged horribly and got dc’d after couple minutes.
Also three months are passed and I got my new veteran reward! I really like Ahriman mount. I’ll most likely use it forever, replacing my beloved Unicorn and Coeurl.
Low how girly my character sits on it! My only concern is the constant rippling that makes me almost nauseous IRL!
Another big update is that I got Blacksmith to 50 and I’ve started working on Armorer, which is almost 20. Took a little break to stack up on leves and hopefully I’ll get it done within couple weeks at most.
Starting to get easier HQs even on one start recipes! I can’t wait to be able to go for 100% and actually get money faster. Not like cash is a problem or anything but I have to rely on some kind of micro-ish transactions.
Last but not least, Kerb started playing again and that makes me so happy! He rolled as the ugliest galka on the server, pick’d MNK.
I still home he will eventually Fantasia to taru and eventually be a BLM again. I know you’re reading, curse on you! Need more black mage action back.
