Where I Currently Am(FF XI): Windurst Mission 3-1
Stuff Did Today (FF X-2): Cleared out Djose Temple which had a Dark Ixion merged with machina or something like that... I dunno... anyway, the tombs there sucked.... but we fought it and it fell... and unfortunately so did Yuna down one of those holes in the Cloister. There, we ran into Tidus... or not... apparently this lookalike is named Shuyin and is in love with Lenne, who is the spirit in Yuna's Songstress dresssphere... yeah, its dumb.
Anyway, Shuyin is the one who's possessing Baralai. Nooj and Gippal show up to snap Yuna out of it, and then kind of disappear. Ah well... lucky the Spirit of Tidus is there to whistle Yuna back to reality.
So, apparently Spira is going to crap since all the leaders disappeared... so we're going to put on a show... but first Shinra's Commspheres... ugh... Everything's okay in Besaid, Wakka's going crazy waiting for his kid, and the Aurochs are terrible. In Kilika, Barthello is worried about Dona, and Dona is trying to keep the peace... and dreaming of Barthello. In Luca, we're waiting for Blitzball to start!!! In Djose temple... they're worrying about some ancient fiend... and then stealing our commsphere for parts.
Stuff Did Today (FF XI): Headed around to San d'Oria, where they were having a bit of an Orc problem... so we took out their warchief. Then over to Bastok where there was trouble in the mines. We headed down and found our first Battleground where a Seeker summoned a Dark Dragon to take him down... luckily I had my trusted friends to help me take it down.
So apparently these dragons were supposed to be sealed away in the northlands, but the big bad Shadowlord is being brought back or something... but we got a certificate making us an official adventurer... yay...
Status & Notes:
Oh... Chapter 4... oh... chapter 4... *groan* I hate Chapter 4... I really wish I could just do the required stuff and head into Chapter 5... there's interesting stuff there. .. here... we're watching little movies. There's a lot of them too. But you NEED them to get 100%. That's what this is all about after all.
Okay... over in Vana'diel. We made it to Rank 3... Didn't come without a few bumps. I hadn't really played around with the Trust spells too much... and I didn't know there was a 2 minute cooldown on them. So, I summoned them real quick before I went into the battleground... and so when I went into the battleground, obviously they went away... and I tried to summon them again, to no avail since the spell was on CD. Oops, the dragon got me. So, I wasted some gil teleporting back and I did it right.
I do have to say, the Trust thing is really awesome, I can't imagine what this game was like when it first came out. It would've taken forever to kill anything. Apparently after level 30 the monster difficulty goes way up, they really expect you to be with a party. Now, unfortunately you can't use them in some places... but I suppose we'll cross that bridge when we get there.
Today, we'll just be going into FF XI... I'm considering levelling up Thief some in order to have Treasure Hunter... plus I'd really like to just hang out in Ronfaure for a while... so that's probably on today's docket
