Stuff Did Today (FF XI): Headed over to Ranguemont Pass... started killing some bats and ahrimans... got myself 3 Seasoning Stones and 3 Fossilized Bones... time to head over to Dangruf Wadi and find some fangs... oh yeah, capped out XP and even picked up 6 Merit Points along the way.

Status & Notes: 

So, started in earnest to the last limit break quest. The way it works is you need to get a Seasoning stone to unlock the quest... and then you can trade 1 Seasoning Stone, 1 Fossilized Fang, and 1 Fossilized Bone for an item that will make the ensuing fight easier. I'm personally going for 3 such items, and I'm hoping between that, and the skillups I've been doing, it should be enough.

"The definition of insanity is repeating an action over and over and expecting a different result." Well, that pretty much describes what Crumps has been doing. So, he started working towards Minerva... and got stuck at 9-1-6... which has 3 bigger mechs you need to take down.  However, he's still under the impression, that you can play this part like a speedrun and skill alone will get him through... no, you do HAVE TO GRIND through those missions. You have to level up and fuse your materia to get some stats... I'm really hoping he figures it out soon... at the same time its strangely satisfying watching him destroy himself over and over again..

Meanwhile, Cereth is pulling quickly ahead. He's finsihed his speed run of FF VII and has moved on to Dirge of Cerebus... a game I have not played, and do not plan to, so I have no frame of reference as to where he might be.
