Where I Currently Am(FF X-2): Chapter 5!!! Creature Creator Time... Part 2! (82% Complete, Bestiary 70% Complete)
Where I Currently Am(FF XI): Windurst Mission 3-2... or at least doing the prep for it... ugh... this is going to take longer than I thought
Stuff Did Today (FF X-2): Finished up a few more fiend's tales, then headed to the Thunder Plains where the show and Shinra's sphere screen seem to have attracted a bunch of Rhyos to the area. After dispatching them, we found there was a big hole by the far lightning tower. We jumped down and found Cid at the bottom.
This little excursion allowed us to capture 6 new fiends in the arena, so I did... and started training them.
Stuff Did Today (FF XI): Bought a crapload of maps to nearly bankrupt me... then went about some quests for the Rhinostery. First, I retreived a sack from Mhaura with a delivery for the little guy who can't say more than 3 words in a sentence... next I retreived some water from the back of Giddeus from the birdmen which they use to enchant the little street light flowers. Finally, the leader of the Rhinostery told us to bring him anything... interesting... we find. Well, we found someone with a Purple Ribbon that made them hear voices... that seems interesting. After bringing it to the Rhinostery, and a whole bunch of time... we found out it belonged to someone who had died who misses it very much, and we should go return it to them...
Knowing where we need to go... time to start the grinding.
Status & Notes:
As I said yesterday, the Fiend Arena in X-2 is kind of done in chunks, based on different side areas you open. There's a few, getting deeper in Via Infinito certainly helps, entering the final dungeon unlocks some. Finding the chocobo cave, the cactuar cave. There was actually more than I thought that unlock after finishing the Thunder Plains episode, thus its time for Creature Creator part 2 of Chapter 5.
In Vana'diel, as I said above, I bought all the maps I could in Windurst, thus nearly bankrupting me, but at least I don't need to worry about maps for like ever. The quests I did were pretty quick, and of course didn't involve having to kill anything. So, I was able to finally get to the big quest I talked about yesterday. If I take this path to get to the mission, I'm going to have to grind up to about level 60. I'll probably get to about 40 and hang out in Jeuno and see if anyone will be willing to help me get through the Three Mage Gate... I'm not particularly holding my breath though.
