Where I Currently Am(FF X-2): Chapter 5!!! Creature Creator Time... Part 1 (82% Complete, Bestiary 65% Complete)
Where I Currently Am(FF XI): Windurst Mission 3-2... or at least doing the prep for it.
Stuff Did Today (FF X-2): In Kilika, things have smoothed over between New Yevon and the Youth League, but the Youth League guy still won't open the gate to the woods. Dona's had enough and convinces him that this standoff is over and gives him his orders. So, the woods are now open and the people of Kilika rush into the woods. They make it to the temple, where Barthello has been waiting for Dona. Dona gives Barthello her rehearsed speech, and Barthello repledges himself to Dona, and everyone is happy, yay....
While in Kilika we took the time to catch some Squatter Monkeys and give them to the lady obsessed with them... now we finally have the Garmnet Grid that would've been awesome to have back in Chapter 1... yay.... Also, the Youth League base is finished, so we took a ride over and found an Invincible accessory waiting for us.
In Besaid, there's a BABY!!!! However, Wakka doesn't know what to name him... so, we decided to screw him and walk over to the beach. When we make it there, Beclem is just about to leave. He has a sphere to give us though... and the need to show off his awesome Blitz skills before he heads out. We return to the village, and meet Wakka just before we get there. We show him the sphere Beclem gave us and it was from Chappu! Chappu confesses that the rumor he gave Wakka about a sphere with their parents was just a hoax. Wakka convinces us to stay until nightfall, when he throws a huge party. Here, Wakka finally has a name for the baby, Vidina. Wakka worries that he won't be a good father, but Lulu has faith in him... yay...
In Mi'ihen, Rin finally has figured out who's behind all the mishaps on the highroad. Apparently, when Rikku jumped off a high ledge it misconfigured a machina behind the travel agency, and landing on another machina caused it to go haywire... whoops. Rikku's punishment, cleaning up the highroad... yay, community service! Our reward, a Ragnarok accessory!
Now, before we head to the Thunder Plains, it's time to catch some monsters.
Stuff Did Today (FF XI): Levelled up White Mage a little bit... just because I'm stalling... I'll explain below.
Status & Notes:
Starting in Vana'diel today. I decided I'd stall for a day and just level up White Mage for now? Why? Well, for the next mission, if I'm going to take the back way in, as I explained a couple days ago, I need to start a quest that requires a certain level of reputation. Now, the best way to level Windurst reputation is by buying a whole crapload of items from Bastok. However, this item is only available for purchase if Bastok is in 1st or 2nd in conquest... this past week, Bastok, of course, was in 3rd. So, I'm waiting until later today when the conquest standings update to see if Bastok will get out of 3rd. If not, I can use some of the Sparks of Eminence I've accumulated instead... I'd rather not, but it wouldn't be the biggest deal, just figured it was worth a day's wait.
Finsihed a few more episodes in X-2. Really, nothing that involved anything other than watching stuff. Now, I need to take a quick break to start catching a couple of monsters. Chapter 5 has a few triggers which make certain monsters available to capture and some to not be able to be caught anymore. The monster I really need to capture now, before I finish the Thunder Plains is the Zalamander. Once you open up the new cave there, it disappears.
Alright, so, one way or the other today, I'm going to grind my Windurst reputation today. I also, will be able to get some X-2 time in today, which will be for finishing up some monster tales.... and maybe going ahead and doing the Thunder Plain episode as well.
