FFXI is meh. I never have energy or willpower to do anything anymore. Stupid work, I'd stab you if I could!
Last night I used up the ~650K worth of gold, brass, and leather I had been saving to skill on Chaser. Had expected to get from 88 to 89, but instead just got .4 skillups. On more than a half-million gil's worth of materials. Stupid goldsmithing, I'd stab you if I could!
Went farming with Dani for mermaid parts. Was nice and relaxing and good company! She got all the parts except the so-called easy one -- we got all the other parts in less time than we spent farming the easy one, and it never even dropped! Stupid fish, I can and will stab you next time!
Good news was the update info this morning. My my my, COR got some love! Honestly, I was pretty happy with the job as-is, though I wouldn't have turned up my nose at more bullets. But stronger rolls! Rolling XI = twice as strong as BRD songs? *drools!*
That leads to me wondering if I need to be more aggressive in my rolling. I almost never hit on a six (because basically, if you're on six you have a one-in-three chance of a bad roll: an unlucky or a bust). Sometimes if I'm above six and sitting on an unlucky roll I'll roll again, depending on the odds of busting. I make a poor gambler, as I really don't like taking risks -- I'd rather have less of a benefit for my party than risking busting and hurting them!
Ah well, stupid files are almost done being copied, so time to go back to work. Stupid work, I'd stab you if I could!
