Apkallu Love the Night Life!

It’s been several days since my last update and a lot of things have changed in that time.  Starting with the LS, Imperfect Harmonies is no more!  Well, actually we are, we’ve just changed addresses and become Mysteria!  ImageSo from now on all references to my LS are to Mysteria and not IH.  With that said, I’ve actually been quite busy the last several days, getting two Assault sessions done, running Einherjar and building the new LS site.  Thursday’s missions were pretty run of the mill and we got 3 done relatively fast.  Continue reading

Pirates Lost at Sea

I started out the weekend working on ToAU missions, as I really need to push through these guys if I plan on starting the Mythic quest around Christmas time.  I left off last time at mission 29 which saw me offShade 12-2 (1) to the Mamool Ja in search Ovjang, the missing puppet (for obvious reasons I have a soft spot for puppets that need aid).  Once there I was surprised to find Gesho (I like Yag’s in general and particularly like Gesho), but what is he doing here?  Of course I get no real explanation from him before a Mamool Ja hoped on Wivre and tried to trample me to death.  Dispatching him my next several missions saw me off to Caedarva mire.

Hero’s of the Nyzul (-1)

On Friday before our LS’s very short Dynamis run (short because only one person needed the win and we weren’t farming) I managed to snap some pictures of the regular group.  Of course I Imageonly managed to get 3 of us (who so far have been the Assault regulars) but soon I’ll be adding a fourth.  But first what I have:  (Top) Aarse – the Bard extraordinaire and Summoner supreme, (Left) Frixt – deadly Dancer and soothing Beast, (Right) Shiguo or me – Master of puppets and occasionally Samurai’s.  I was hoping to snap some good profile pics here, and really I think I accomplished that with Aarse’s photo, but not so much with me and Frixt.  Continue reading

Did someone order a side of VNM?

Well, continuing in my frenzy of putting up backlogged posts I’ll put up Thursday night’s event runs.  Assualts and VNM’s, nothing better than that (well probably is but it was still fun).


Aarse, Bigcuzz, Frixt and myself getting ready to enter Assault. Oh yea, and mushroom.

We ran our usually Thursday night Assault mission set tonight, having saved up four tags since Sunday, which believe it or not is fairly unusual for me to remember to do as I’m always forgetting to take out that extra tag.  It was the usual group of people: Me, Frixt and Aarse, but we also had a new additon Bigcuzz!  (He’s the blu on the right there, I’d draw an arrow to him but that takes more work than I’m willing to put in).  So with four of us this time we rolled out and did our missions.  We went 4/4 and did all of them in about an hour, which probably isn’t all that impressive in this day and age of level 99, but still it felt like quite the accomplishment.  Continue reading

Warhorse Hunting

Ranking up the Merc.

So this is really only tangentially related to my mythic progress (as I need to reach captain rank), but I thought I’d throw this in here.  So last night Frixt and I ran the rank up quest for Corporal.  We had to find and place a quartz transmitter in the Warhorse hoof-print.  Simple enough, but what ended up happening was a large scale running of Aht Urgahn areas, and some unintended sightseeing.  I actually came across a couple of sights I hadn’t seen before (odd since I’ve been playing for 8 years or so).  While Frixt searched Wajaom Woodlands I searched Bhaflau Thickets first.

Forging a New Shiguo

I have recently begun the task of creating a Mythic weapon in FFXI.  While for most this probably seems like an insurmountable task not worth the effort, as most Mythic’s aren’t that strong, I feel like after 8 years of playing its time I did this.  As such, this will mostly be dedicated to my journey towards a Kenkonken (that’s right the Pup one no less), and my friends that help me out.  As well, some of my Linkshells activities, Imperfect Harmonies, will make it in here, because you can’t get much done here without friends and a LS.
