What have I been up to lately?!?!?!
Well, I've been very busy the last few days.  Traveling all around!   Well, for starters, I got level 50 earlier this week.  I went and did G1!

Knocked G1 out in about an hour or so with Riikuu and Nanakii :)  Thanks a bunch, guys!

On the way to do my PUP AF, we killed something on the boat.  I hit lv51! 

After doing some G1, I went and started on my artifact.   I must say, PUP AF is a BITCH.   I absolutely hated it.   Too much running around with lack of staging points/IS to use them.   The only thing I liked about PUP AF was the fact that I didn't have to deal with the coffer bullshit of the pre-ToAU15.

The Pup. Churidars quest was nothing compared to the Taj quest (ohmygod, I think I spent like 2 hours just traveling)   Well, after I got my churidars (on whm, if you didn't notice) I realized I didn't have a warp.  So what does any sane person do when they want to leave the mire ASAP?

That's right! You guessed it!   Check my HP, and check what my character is doing! lol

After I got that piece, I started my PUP Taj quest.  I must say, the Velkreng fight was a bit difficult.  (We wiped the first time, I forgot to do strat)
Well, we won the second time.  I didn't bother doing all of the running around that night, so I put it off for about 11 hours.

Woke up the next morning and BAM!

Aren't I cute? :D

Since usually 2 AFs are quested, and 3 are coffers, the ToAU3 are 2 quested-3 synthesis materials.   PUP AF is quite expensive- roughly 150-250k if I'm going to guess.   I don't even want to know the exact amount -_-

Turned in Babauches and Dastanas so far..

Getting my Tobe on monday :)

And, because all of those pictures are boarderline cute, I decided to take a screenshot JUST for the cute factor:

Aww. I'm adorable.

Anyways, I got my Dancer done last night. Went from 26-37 in 3 parties.   After dancer, I worked on WAR a bit.  Only went 25-29 before everyone in my marathon party wanted to sleep.  The sync target went from 12-24 in about 5 hours.
Going to try to get a few levels on PUP before I have to grind from 29 to 37 on WAR (FML, I hate WAR)

Guess that's all for now!! Sorry for taking so long for an update.  I just wanted to bundle it all up in one post.

Whoa! I was busy!
So, I've been busy.  Many accomplishments.

First, I got a lot of my subjobs worked on.  WAR 1-10, DNC 1-26, and MNK1-20.

I got myself a Herder's Subligar last night.  About 1/9 gold boxes, but it took 1h30minutes before the first gold box appeared!  Had 9 gold boxes pop within ~45minutes..

I worked on PUP a lot too.  Today, alone, I went 23-30!  

While EXPing today, I took a completely adorable picture! 

I thought it was cute. :)

Well, late last night I was EXPing PUP in Valkurm Dunes.  It was a blast.   Here's a little clip of what was going on. :)

Well, besides that, I've been keeping my skills near-capped so far.   My magic is about 7 levels undercap, my ranged is capped within 2k XP of dinging 75.

PUP is a blast.  I'm waiting for a Coiler to pop on the AH to enhance my damage!  

So, today I hit a huge milestone..
Today, I did many things.

First, I unlocked DNC.  I thought this was cute, so I took a picture:

I thought it was SUPER cute.  So I had to take a picture. :)   First time in the past.

So, after unlocking Dancer, I went off to bastok to unlock PUP.   Did all of that jazz, then headed to Arrapago Reef.   On the way there, I died twice.  I completely forgot Chigoes were sight aggro.

Now, picture of me unlocking PUP:

I chose the name Serenade, I thought it was cute. :)

Now to work on Subjobs. :(

Where to begin.   I've been playing FFXI off-and-on since October '03.   I've leveled many jobs (in fact, all 19 except PUP) to 75.

I've decided to make a livejournal about my marvelous misadventures on the path to 75 on PUP- but here's the catch, it will be done on a character that has nothing completed beforehand.   Meaning, I'll do most of my missions and such, as PUP. 
  • I'll post pictures of my recent dings (in fact, I plan on having all 75 of my dings on PUP posted in here)
  • I'll post pictures of armor I've obtained specifically for PUP.
  • I'll *try* to post at least one entry a day, summarizing my randomness I've done.
I've thought about many different things.  I've thought about soloing 1-75 on PUP, but then I realized that would take me probably as long, if not longer, than BST to 75.  (FYI, BST took me ~ 3months) 

So, I'll just solo, then take most party invites that I get.  That would be the best way to do it.

Hurray entry #1.
