Sleepy Ken

FFXI and Bleach and ... stuff.

Last night I had a dream that I was cooking pancakes for the most famous HP fanfic writers on my flist. Each of them only wanted four pancakes, except one pair who wanted to share four between them. I woke up really wanting pancakes for breakfast. :/

FFXI! Most of the night was uneventful (farm, farm, farm, farm), but we did an Escort run on the fly. I took some screenshots but I totally brainfarted on editing them, so you'll have to trust me on this: Guillotine broke 800 damage! Before I learned it, I almost never did more than 500 (200-300 was much more common, sometimes falling below 200), but every time I used it in CN I hit 600-800! Woo! I'm glad for this, because I was really getting worried at my ability to DRK. ("And here on the left we have Thistle. He's the DRK who can't do more than double-digit damage!")

Zubis the cute cool PLD went out to join us on the Escort run, and I got to discover just how little I know about partying with a PLD. (Isn't that odd? But I've spent 12 out of the last 15 or so months on the game partying with nothing but NIN tanks.) He used Cover on me after my first Guillotine did 800+ (800+! *happy giggle*), and I was like 'Uh? Am I supposed to stay behind you now?'. Heh. Too bad I wondered about that after I had already ran away from him. (Other than when I'm SATAing, I always stand on the opposite side of the mob than the main tank, so I moved out of habit.)

Hm, I wonder how long it will be before I can do 1K+ damage? Next level I get amemit mantle +1 (+15 attack), then at 63 I get my bomb core (+12 attack), in the latter half of the 60s I get 3 thick pieces (a total of +12 attack for NQ, total of +15 attack for HQ), and my Hauby +1 at 69 (+12 attack). Wow, that's a lot of +attack! :D

I need to look into food, too. See when I need to consider upgrading from my coeurl dish...


Bleach: I had been saving the new ep to watch on Monday, so that I'd have something good to do during the game downtime.
