FFXI! Got lots done today. Digging was really good. I risked going to the Desert and it paid off (3 golds, 2 darksteels, 7 coral fragments, 2 wyvern scales, and 1 ph stone, along with the usual ton of zinc and giant femurs).
I did a good deal of crafting, including earning guild points (which I haven't done in ages, but I needed signing crystals). Made a brand new enhanced item (armor ring, 50 charges of def +8 or something like that), as well as a mess of my usual powder boots (flee enhancement). Skilled smithing a little more, getting up to 42.5. I really should start saving my darksteels instead of selling them, but I really don't have the space and maybe their prices will fall further by the time I need them.
Had to go farming for ice crystals, since all my pots across five mules will need them. Got a mess of them. Farmed for dhalmel hides as well (boring!) to make the special leather for the powder boots.
Between the scorp harness I got earlier and the new cape and ring I got today, I no longer feel like I'm not spending enough on BRD! :P
(Yeah, I always bid funky numbers like that.) I'm very much looking forward to having to keep my HP in the yellow! Yay for more challenges! :)
And boy, my chocochick loves me! He still has no personality, but hey!
I wish the SE programmers had coded it to use he/she instead of it. It really wouldn't have been that hard...
I finished the night with finally starting BRD AF. Tomorrow I have to run to Xarc to bury a ring (and pick up the next RL day) so I can do that fight when/if we have time. I need to do that before AF3, and I'd like to be ready for AF3 so I can tag along when we do it for Nil (a BRD main on our LS, he plays SAM in our static). Eh, I don't think Nil has his AF3 yet, I guess I should ask him.
