I think I overdosed…

Because for some reason I’m stubbornly loyal to Bastok, I really didn’t want to jump ship to Windurst when I worked out I wanted a piece of Cobra gear. I could have switched, done 10 days work of campaign and bought the item I wanted for 75k. Did I? Did I hell! Somehow I couldn’t face giving in to the midgets..

Cobra Harness Stats

I was pretty close to having the points for the harness before I bought a Sturm’s Report. At least that was from Bastok… so then I realised I needed a ton of Allied Notes.  WHM/NIN is the most fun for me in campaign, in fact Mystic Boon turned my opinion of Campaign around because combined with a decent ish melee setup I can do just fine and can even solo mobs. I can certainly tank them.

So armed with my trusty martial and perdu paddles, I decided to try and complete two things at once – the first was get the Allied Notes for my Cobra Harness (112.5k) and the second to finish INT upgrade #4.

Well suffice to say, INT #4 got done and I’m nearly 2 merits into whatever I decide to merit next! I usually take a break and merit other crap for a bit before going back to stats but not sure if I will this time.  You see I’d quite like a strap and perhaps some legs… but maybe I should give in and switch to Windy for those. All I know is I’m not doing it until I’m closer… or at all. We’ll see.

So the end result is… 4 INT upgrades complete, 2k Allied Notes in the bank and one lilac and silver harness for my COR! And I can now sell my scorpion harness 🙂

My COR is 69 and I’m probably going to Campaign it to 70 as decent bullets seem rare and I’m fairly broke. It depends. If I’m pulling on COR I really don’t use many. I just refuse to gimp out really on cheap bullets.  Nia has acted as Bank of Kitty for me on a martial gun. He said he’d buy one for me for my birthday (we’ve known each other for years) but I didn’t feel right about that and was kicking myself for not buying it earlier when they were cheaper. So I’m paying for some and so is he as a compromise – but he nabbed one for me from the AH cos they don’t seem to come up more often. We’ve been talking about doing the ENM as a group but this way if it drops we can just sell and split. I don’t really feel right in swiping such an expensive drop for a job I won’t get to use as often as say WHM.

WAR is 30, so that’s probably next on the agenda. I won’t need it constantly for COR but once I’m 75 and can merit some marksmanship it’s supposed to be good.  I need to get /DNC done but I’m not very interested in DNC yet (it’s 11…) – it’s one of those things which almost certainly improves with more JA.

So yeah, Campaign… insane amounts of it done! At least I got a few nice drops along the way to help…

    I’m fiercely loyal to Windy and stubbornly refuse to change my alliegance to San d’Oria for the level 68 Iron Ram set. I know it means I’m going to end up campaigning my life away, but there’s no way I’m leaving Windurst behind. The only time I ever left was to do rank missions and even then I switched back to Windy as soon as I could.

    I stuck with Bastok too despite not having a single item from them for AN yet. But I did get the whole Cobra Harness set (minus the hat), Rose Strap, and Patronus Ring.

    They really need to make the AN sets storable.
