Duck, Duck, Chocobo!

Alright -- so, I started doing the Chocobo thing when it first went live. I like it, it's pretty cool. My first chick was a Yellow Girl, her name was Lady Lily and I loved her very much -- and she loved me in return.

When she grew up, I retired her and didn't touch another Chocobo for awhile.

You see, my goal is this...

A. Raise one Chocobo of each color. This is so I can get the colored plaques for the Moghouse.

B. Raise the ULTIMATE Gold Chocobo to get the Knights of the--...raise the ULTIMATE Green Chocobo so I can kick feathered ass in the Races and look awesome in my AF while doing it.

So far, I've raised two yellows...Lady Lily and Lunar Rose, both girls. These were the only two I actually put any money into. Then I raised a Red Boy, Lord Wild. Now, I have another girl who is currently in her adolescent stage, she's black and her name is Night Iris.

Yea, I know -- all those names have flowers in them...Lily, Rose, Wildflower and Iris. It's called a theme you Galkan bean sac.

Anyhow, with Wild and Iris, I gave the egg to the Tarutaru Lady in Windurst...and never went back until they were grown. Which, for Lord Wild...big deal, he's a guy he'll live. Make him tough, you know, put feathers on his chest.

But...I feel bad about Night Iris because I really like her name and she's a girl. Makes me sad...oh well. She should be an adult soon and I'll retire her then start my blue chocobo.

Which reminds me...I need a new name, something to do with flowers...any ideas?

...of course not. Bunch of useless mutes.

Soaring to New Heights!

Ok, so I might have forgotten about my last promise to post about the STRIFE and Salvage thing...my bad. A lot since then has happened though, so I'll briefly talk about the Salvage Run then I want to talk more about STRIFE.

So, ImperialScouts the Salvage Linkshell.

I was impressed. I was very, very impressed. They have a very tight knit group -- cell passing\lotting went as smooth as I think it's possible to do. We had minimal deaths -- the leader Onibaku really knew his shit and we got things done. We had two Anu's Tiara drop, that was cool. Nothing else really happened, we fought other NMs but no drops. I'll most defiantly be going back, this will be the Linkshell to get me my Skadi's gear.


We. Are. Awesome. We're on a huge roll here. We're claimed every NM, we've got every pop item...we're planning to do our first God on the 17th. Within a week though, we're managed to do double what the other Sky Linkshell's usually accomplish in a week.

But what makes us so special? 80% of our Linkshell...is new to Sky. Aside from the leaders, STRIFE's opening run was the FIRST time more then half of our Linkshell even stepped into Sky, let alone read up on it. It's amazing. We took down our first Faust and Mother Globe last night completing our missing God sets. Last I knew we had 2 Genbu's and two halfs, 4 Byakkos, 1 and half Seiryu, and 1 and a half Suzaku. It's our hope that within a month we'll be reliably taking down Gods and trying our hand at our first Kirin. It's been amazingly fun so far.

Last night alone we started at 8:00pm and the night went like this...

Kill Faust (Soup Abj.). Kill Ullikumi (Soup Abj.). Kill Steam Cleaner (Drink Abj, and Indra Katars) on 2nd Detector Summon. Kill Olla Grande (Drink Abj.). Get a water on first kill. Kill Olla Grande (Drink Abj.). Go find Curtana in third room we check. Kill Brigandish Blade (Soup Abj,). Then I logged and they went and killed Mother Globe. All within 2-3 hours, it was an excellent night!

I'm a little bummed out that they delayed the new Assault and Rank...but whatever, gives me more time to rank up myself. In 10 days I should max rank, but I need to hop to it! I got four assault tags burning a hole in the commissions agency as we speak!

Also, TOA Missions...DO, THEM, NOW! SqaureEnix has started trying some brand new things in both battles and cut scenes. Some of the new graphics and textures and different actions\animations they're starting to use is pimp. We're talking like...if you were to take RDM AF and THF AF...and make it into like...Thief Mage AF -- oh yea, that pimp.

Starter Wings?

Ok, so I'm a bit late -- I actually had some problems and I didn't get to attend the first night of STRIFE. But, the second night, which was Saturday went pretty well, and from what I hear of the first night -- we're off to a pretty good start. Here's a quick outline...

Thur. Night, not an official run, Souel, Sene, Blaiyke, and myself as well as NPC Ashrah all went to farm some waters. I found a Curtana before they got out there and when they came we farmed up 4 Ro'Maeve waters, for Olla Grande.

Friday night -- we got ToDs on MG, SC, Zip and Despot -- but didn't claim any of them. We popped Brigandish Blade and killed him, popped two Olla Grande's and kill them. Decent for our first night. We only had 12 people.

Saturday night -- got a ToD on Despot, sent someone over to MG. We went and farmed some Diorites...well, we tried. Farmed for about 2 hours. Nothing. Missed a Despot claim -- went backto Diorites...an hour...nothing. MG pops. We all hurry over and claim her -- didn't go exactly as well as we'd hope, but it was a valiant effort with only have 2 parties of people who are mostly fighting her for the first time. We lost her at 50% and another LS beat us to the claim as we got unweakened. Oh well, it was fun.

We went back up top to Despot whose window was opening again and managed to get claim this time! Woot! Souel got one shotted by something right off the bat and hate went haywire! Luckily Cyprias got it under control (With a quick TA Shark Bite from myself.) and we take him down. We head down to Ulli since someone said they have an old Diorite. But as they were coming back from Jeuno they fell asleep. So...we farmed Diorites for another 2 and half hours...and we got nothing.

All in all -- we've got 2 Waters left, and at least one item for each god. So we're well on our way! I'm really looking forward, our Black Mages are already showing great progress. We do training Skillchains\Magic Bursts while farming and our Black Mages -- even Paladins and White Mages are hitting thier Magic Bursts 80%-100% of the time.

We got another run Monday, as well as my first Salvage run with Imperial Scouts -- so look forward to updates concerning both of those!

Take to the Sky.

So today at 8EST PM an event of a lifetime will take place.

lolSTRIFE, a linkshell started my Souel, will take it's maiden farming run in Sky. Sene, Myself, Ashrah and a guy by the name of Nikup are part of the management. I don't like calling myself a co-leader...but Souel puts enough responsibility on me, not that I'm complaining. We farmed 1 Curtana and 3 Waters last night in a bout 2 and half hours or so. Anyhow, I can't give you much now but I'll try and post again after the run tonight.

We're hoping that STRIFE becomes a lot more then just a Sky Shell. We plan on forming a smaller Limbus farming static soon. Eventually touching Salvage and Sea and beyond that. However, that's way in the future.
