A few more achievements

Logging in I saw what I had been reading about all day:

I was instantly excited and then slightly depressed. Oh well!  So much to do, so little time!

Slow night

But I still managed to get stuff done.

That boys and girls, is Lasthold. It was a lot easier to get to with the help of a friend.  I now have a shiny new title.  Its not a huge thing but I really wanted to have it done.

8 Days left!

Still playing most days. Still running whatever needs running with my endgame linkshell, Smokin' Aces. Still gathering up the lost sheep who need a LS and trying to help them out.We are still on the seemingly endless mission to gather up Darklight gear. I have previously been involved in Miser's Mistress punching but I was asked to gear up my monk for more flexibility when doing Aurum Vale. I'm broke now but it was nice to do it with bigger numbers.

The End Is Nigh

I've been very busy last few weeks trying to get everything done my LS mates and I want to do before the servers come down.

Smokin' Aces has been farming darklight in AV and CC and farming Garuda totems. Some of us have had up to 3 weapon drops already. Not me of course -_- Heck, I even ran out of the vortex thingies and had to go farm more when at one time I thought I had more than I could ever possibly need.

Last night a couple of Smokin' Aces guys and I gave a hand to some of the newer players from my other LS. They needed some of the NMs killed for quests. Then we did some vortex headdress farming and more imperial hat/tricorn farming until I was almost asleep on the keyboard.

With only a couple weeks left I am both excited and sad. I have a few things I would like to get done in 1.x like make it to Lasthold and Rivenroad (Hard Mode). I probably should have worked on my relic but it will still be there in 2.0.  

I'm not sure what I am going to do with myself during whatever length downtime there will be before 2.0.  I know I'm not going to log on to FFXIV after the 11th.  This blog will probably go even more silent than it already has been.

I've also been doing the weekly SBXIV podcast and lots of Twitter ^^
