Stuff Did Today (FF XI): So, I took the unlit lantern back into the Den of Rancor... and to the west was an altar... where I could light my lantern!!! So, I lit it and took it to the sacrifical gate... and I lit one of the braziers... and then I walked back lit my lantern... walked back lit a brazier... yeah, I did this 4 times... FINALLY the gate opened. Inside were 3 tonberries... I took them out pretty easily. When I did, one of the tonberries revealed itself as a member of the Kuluu tribe!

He described to us how the Zilart had used the powers of the ancient crystals to empower themselves. They created a path to the Garden of the Gods, and used the Delkfutt Tower on Qufim Island to direct the enerfies given by the crystals. The Kuluu, however, destroyed one of the crystals, thus putting everything out of wack. The Zilart were all destroyed... or at least thought to be. The Kuluu... well, they were turned into Tonberries... joy.

Anyway, we were given our next quest. We have to retreive 8 crystal fragments from all around Vana'diel... at least he gave us one for a headstart...

Status & Notes: 

Alright, so I've let my FF XI subscription run out... and I decided to take a break for the rest of my holiday vacation. Mostly, just because I wanted a break... been playing a lot of Fantasy Life... really good game btw. Also, I haven't even taken my computer out in days...

I have gotten everything set up for FF XII IZJS... it plays REALLY nicely. So, I'm very excited about that.  I'll be starting that up on the 5th for sure.

Want to talk a little more about XI real quick. First of all, I'm extremely impressed with the amount of work STILL being put into this game. I mean, with all the different quests and missions and levelling, and job levelling, and armor levelling, and weapon levelling... seriously... you could grind in this game for years and still not be complete. It's very impressive. It's still a fun game too, even though it maybe isn't as advanced as some other MMOs... it feels like the most advanced MUD ever created... and that really is not a bad thing. I do very much want to come back to this game sometime and do some more work on it, but I think for now, I'm ready to take a break with it.
