Filling out the AFv3

This is more for my record than anything else but I wanted somewhere to post up compiled info on the AFv3 stuff for my jobs. I’m not sure I’ll take all 7 to 85 yet let alone quest this stuff for all.  Read More…


Well, it’s all a bit overwhelming. Before I went to bed last night I managed to collect one Kindred’s Crest for the level cap and take a look around Miseraux and Attowha. I found so much stuff and will post a screenshot post later but wow. I particularly like the mini Orobon near the waterfall in Mis.

I’ve collected together the sets of AFv3 pics from various places (credit to peeps contributing to BG and to Evil Paul). Remember there are +1 and +2s. In most cases people have posted the uber +2s but even the +1s are remarkable.

Base head pieces are bought with Cruor from the NPCs inside the new zones. I picked up an Orison Cap.  Then I guess you go to the Magian Moogle and get a trial set up. Not sure what happens next. 🙂

65k xp later…

OK, so I’ve been pretty steadily xping on COR. Niamh, Martinius and I had formed a semi-static. We’d usually pick up BA, Ure and anyone else who wanted to come along. If the shell was quiet, we’d grab some random DD.  I kept looking for a BRD or bugging our other BRDs (I’m one) to come merit but it never quite worked out – until today.

I get home early – and I’m 1k into 74. I think to myself, ‘later I have an xp party with Mart but I have a few hours to burn’. So, I decide to seek. Then Mac mentions he’d like merits. So, I stop seeking and mention it in ls, and a couple of other people prick their ears up. Read More…

Finally! New gear for COR…

About time I started hitting decent levels.. now am 72. Still don’t have a peacock charm so stop bitching about that. Considering heading to do the BC once I have enough seals to do 2-3 runs. Dinged 72 today in the same party as Nia got 74 WHM!

So now I can wear my augmented AGI+4, STR and VIT +2 ring, suppanomimi, dusk trousers, dusk gloves, my commodore gants and… my martial gun! The emerald earring is augmented with AGI+1 and RAcc +2.

So this ended up being about COR…

I haven’t had much time to keep my Blog up-to-date, real life is kinda hectic right now as my contract in my current role ends soon. It may get even more erratic as I may have to relocate shortly.

Things in shell have gotten busy, just as I was thinking we need to recruit. It’s nice to be honest. The shell is never dead even when peeps are busy in the real world but the summer months understandably pull people away.

Salvage is proving to be quite fun right now, for me at least. As expected quite a few people have fallen by the wayside but a core group is starting to establish itself. On Mondays we have more people than Wednesdays but we’re quite comfortable doing all sorts of things with six.

The more I play COR and play with CORs the more I want them around. Arubus came along on her then 72 COR for one of our Boss runs and it really helped. Mine is now 70, hopefully 71 tonight – I might get a chance to play it occasionally if Mac makes some of our runs. Read More…

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

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 🙂

Cobra Harness Front

Cobra Harness Front

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.

Cobra Harness Back

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…

65 COR and some ZNMs

Although I’ve seen a fair amount of gil in recently, levelling COR seems to involve watching it flow out again… Hit 65 today which means it’s getting to be almost event worthy in some circumstances. Won’t get used yet but might now come out for meripo or manaburn.

65 COR/RNG setup

65 COR/RNG setup

4 rank 4 prizes in the Mog Bonanza and a 1/5 share in a Hagun+Scouter’s Rope has helped. I’ve bought Genie Gages which I’ll see once I get some Oracle’s gloves. I’ve also managed to pick up a Beater’s earring finally. Bought some dusk trousers and a pair of war brais as well as a stack of iron bullet pouches. Will prolly make some steel bullets for WS.

Legs seem the problem area for COR. I’d like some Denali kecks and some Pahluwan. Dusk are awesome as long as you are not running around. I need to finish off my WAR and RNG subs, 24 and 34 respectively.

With Blood Finger gauntlets my ranged set is going to be fine. Just now really need to work on a melee tp set for my sword and some merits. I can start on sword now if I want but marksmanship will have to wait til COR hits 75.

Had some fun yesterday running around doing bits and pieces. Finished ACP for Nana, did Dell’s Savage Blade WSNM as he’s now a 75 WAR and has already ploughed in quite a few merit into it. So now he’s opening WS that he hasn’t needed before. Helped C skill up Great Axe as he’s decided to finish his WAR at last. I think he’s 63 and he’s enjoying it as a change. Collected a few zenis, now have a Khromasoul pop and Ere has an Achamoth. I have the seal to get another Anantaboga done and then we’ll do Nosferatu as well. Hopefully then we can have a shot at Sarameya. I want an Oracle’s robe, Ere wants the Hachi pants. Lots of cool stuff drops from him.

No doubt we’ll have to repeat until the drops we’d like to see, fall but its not too bad. We did manage to do 4 Obs finally netting 2 guignol earrings, one for Firi and one for Alustriel as well as some attachments. I’m trying to be good and get some zenis each day.

Did Black Coffin for Reccaa and BA, in the process getting it done for Mitch so now all three have access to Salvage. Which is cool (should Nia’s hat ever drop). We took a weekend off from events entirely, including Limbus. So we didn’t pop Omega again but we will be on Sunday.

Had an email and then a long chat with Mac on the phone, that was good. I still feel a bit like no one person is telling me the whole story but I was glad we talked. That’s not me making a dig Mac, just the whole thing has seemed a bit surreal and there are lots of people having lots of conversations behind each other’s backs.

Other things have come to light which I hope have now exposed the fact that whilst I am in no way perfect, I have tried to do the right thing. I hope everyone can now go on and enjoy the game the way they’d like to, instead of lashing out at each other.

Looking forward to Dynamis and Einherjar this weekend, a weekend away was nice but want to see some friends finish some relic sets!
