Why Blog When I Can Play?

The problem with blogging on FFXI is that time spent blogging is time not spent playing. And we all want to squeeze in as much play time as possible, don't we? ;-)

So here's a recap (more or less in order) of things I could have blogged, but didn't because I was just too darned busy playing. Pay attention -- I'll be moving pretty quickly. I hope I don't miss anything. Ready? Here we go!


Got tired of soloing my BLM sub in the Ronfaures and decided to haul my WHM Taru ass to Jeuno. Ran into an old friend in Selbina who agreed to escort me there. En route, settled an old misunderstanding with said friend. Got an impression of the Stone Monument in Rolanberry Fields. Made it to Jeuno! Found out what it's like to be broke in Jeuno after spending all one's gil on Gausebit Grass. Learned how to quickly raise gil when broke in Jeuno. Got my chocobo license! Leveled WHM to 25 in Qufim. Learned Raise!

Realized I was woefully unprepared to go to Kazham. Leveled BLM sub to 20 in Valkurm Dunes. Learned how to Magic Burst. Learned that BLM is much more fun in a party than solo. Quested in San D'Oria. Harvested in Sarutabaruta. Had an LS mate help me get the Kazham keys. Visited Bastok for the first time. Killed Spiny Spipi! Leveled cooking to 14. Started a mule and discovered that playing a Mithra takes some getting used to. Returned to Jeuno. Finally got some sensible +MND/+MP equipment. Got the Kazham airship pass!

Leveled WHM to 29 in Yuhtunga Jungle. Purchased the first piece of my equipment that cost me over 10k (Seer's Tunic). Got killed and delevled the instant I set foot in Yhoator Jungle. Leveled WHM to 30 in Yhoator Jungle. Had a heart-to-heart with an LS mate to work out some RL problems. Helped another LS mate get his Giddeus key. Said goodbye to a friend quitting the game. Got an unexpected message from a very good friend who hasn't logged on in a long time. Learned that my best in-game friend will be taking a month's hiatus from the game.

Went hunting for Carbuncle's Ruby in Buburimu with some LS mates. Soloed gobs in Valkurm Dunes. Met up with a former LS member whom I thought had emigrated. Stumbled upon a friend who keeps turning up when and where I least expect it. Learned the hard way how difficult it is to Sneak/Invis through Ranguemont Pass. Watched our LS leader open a serious can of whoop-ass on some bats. Completed the Summoner quest! About to start over as SMN01/WHM01...

Current plans: Level SMN -- but at a nice leisurely pace. Raise cooking skill. Take up clothcraft. Take up goldsmithing. Quest. Fish. Harvest. Mine. Do some more Windurst misisons. Take up gardening. Get that Mog Safe upgrade. Buy some nice gifts for my friends. Max out +MP gear. Fill in the gaps in my WHM/BLM spellbook. Wonder how the heck I'm gonna afford all this. Stand outside Windurst Woods and revel in just summoning Carbuncle over and over and over and over...


And now you are up to date with Nupinu. Enough blogging -- I gotta go play.
