A super awesome friend hooked me up with a company tabard this past week! Aylin's Astrologian glamour is reaping the rewards. !
I've also been spamming King Mog HM, hoping for the AST weapon to drop, to no avail. Seriously, in the last week I'm pretty positive I've logged 20+ kills. The AST weapon does not exist. If you want a DRK weapon though, come run with me! I've seen about 10 of them. (-.o
I attempted a Titan EX pony farm, since I think I'm the only person in my FC who needs it at the moment, only to join a sort of fail group. We wiped about 4 times before finally killing him. No drop, half the group left after that so... that was the end of that. :s I'd really love to snag Kirin, but when you don't have all the clears for EXs yet, it makes it pretty damn impossible. :(
It was sort of compounded by a friend of mine rubbing a pony farm in my face, then quitting FC. When it comes to friends, IRL I have weird abandonment issues (mostly due to 3/3 of people I was decent friends with moving to the other side of the country), so I haven't exactly handled this well at all. I'm a little bitter and hurt, but somehow not totally surprised? Meh. Playing during my wacky hours only makes it worse, as there's never really anyone online then to do stuff with. FFXIV is becoming my new World of PUGcraft, bleh.
On the upside, my AST hit ilvl 196 this week! :D 2 more accessories, and then I'll be saving for Eso body and feet to finish it up. I was going to gear Ninja next, but I'm really having fun with Summoner and may opt to go that route instead!
This upcoming Saturday is game day for Extra Life! My webcam is set up, and I'll be running a test stream some time this week before then. I'm $50 from my goal, and it would be awesome if I could hit it!
