Heh!!!!

Though I’m not a big fan of being a Warrior, I feel so delighted when I got Raging Rush Weaponskill.

Well, starting from mid May, I’ve been partying my WAR (61) with Lusian’s Blue Mage. Now my WAR is level 68. I’ve been using sub NIN and dual-wielding Axe & Sword in order to keep my Sword skill up-to-date. So, my Great Axe, mostly untouched, became out-of-date.

Um well, let’s look back….

Starting from last year, about late December, my brother was leveling up his Corsair, and Leonidus his Blue Mage. So I revived my Warrior, from maybe about 37 or 40 and joined them as WAR/NIN. We’ve been all over the world; Garlaige, Crawler’s, Bhaflau, Altepa, and Yhoator. With Level Sync system introduced, it was much easier to keep my friend’s company. All we had to do was gathering some of us, like Lusian, Kannatsuki, Leonidus, Brunestud, me, and sometimes Aikanana, Mitaonsya, or Kimji, and then fill the empty spots with other people seeking party.

Since most of us were busy with real life stuffs, not all of us could be presented at the same time. So someone would always be missing, on and off. I’ve also been changing jobs to suit the situation as well as PT setting. Roughly, I’ve used my WAR and NIN. Brune was COR, Leo BLU, Lusi RDM, and Kanna SAM as always.

It was not until one day that I realized the disadvantage of Level Sync…

In this party, where I rushed to the camp, I realized that my Axe skill was WAY behind my job level. I could hardly hit the Colibri, if not because of my Sushi/Pizza and my brother’s ACC roll. My damage was greatly gimp, not just accuracy. And my Sword/Axe were outdated. I felt very ashamed and started looking for help on updating my weapon, at least. Maxpeter answered my emergency call on the LS chat and delovered new Axe and Sword.

Thank you Max! You’ve helped me decrease my feeling of guilt by 30%!

After getting new weapons, my damage was much better, but accuracy was still suck. The other members of PT were very patient and didn’t say anything unkind about my gimpness. But well, that only made me feel worse.

Enraged towards my own ignorance, later that day I went out on my own to level up my Axe skill.

It was a long, hard-working day. It was also boring, but a must. And since I couldn’t solo safely, I had to summon Khuma for help, with Cure and stuff.

Oh, and a by-product was Parrying Skill….which was also (and still is) far behind.

My effort yielded a good result, though. I got a bunch of skill levels that day. But that was barely enough for me to hit the Lesser Colibri. My skill was still gimp that it resulted in me gaining so mamy skill points during battles.

Oh, and if my memory is correct, it was in this party where I earned Rampage.

Anyway, after getting Rampage, my life was much easier. I could party with my brother and Lusi without shaming them. 😛 Except for, maybe, the ugly armor.

Ahh, well, fast forward to May 2009, last month. I’ve again continued my Warrior from 61, to accompany Lusian’s Blue Mage towards 75. We were back to killing the birds, but this time the medium one, Colibri.

This party was really something. I got tons of skill points during the session. People said it was “Martial Master” Kupower in effect, but as far as I understand it doesn’t effect Aht Urghan Urhgan areas, no? Well it doesn’t matter, all I know is that I felt very lucky.

At that time my skills were like this…. I capped my Axe skill in that party.

Please note that my Great Axe was 106.

After capping my One-handed Axe, I wanted to update my Two-handed Axe skill too. But it was like half the level of cap…. Such a discouragement, you see. However, Lusian said he wanted to do FoV in Ro’Maeve and the mobs are like Decent Challence to Even Match, with some Tough if we look for it. So, I bought a Great Axe, namely Colossal Axe, and joined him.

Using Sole Sushi and a bunch of accuracy gears, I could hit them on a decent rate. My Great Axe skill level went skyrocket. And on 2nd June 2009, I finally got to 175. The last step before Raging Rush.

So we kept up, keep killing mobs in FoV Regimes. Yesterday we continued, and then had to move to page 4 for the dinosaurs, because my skill was 190+ and I almost never got any skill point when we fought Decent Challence crabs.

And these target didn’t fail me. I got a lot of 0.5 and 0.4 in skill. Soon enough, I got what I’ve been looking forward to!

Raging Rush!

Whee~~~~!! (^0^)/

My first Raging Rush ever!

And it went Critical hehehe!

This is a fun WS!! I like it already.

Well, here we go, continuing from last entry – General Information on Chocobo Raising.

Here are rough guides on Digger Chocobo and Racer Chocobo, based on my first-handed experience in raising a digger of my own, and babysitting my brother’s runner. My methods of raising chocobo are based on of information obtained from reading various sources, mainly FFXI wiki, and from asking some experienced chocobo raisers.

For detailed raising methods, day by day, I’ve kept a record of my own digger here, in Google Document.

*Participating in Kamp Kweh and then letting your chocobo play with other chocobo will allow you a chance to get small bonus in one of the stats. This can be done (successfully) once a day. If you haven’t gotten any stat rise with one chocobo, you can still try with other chocobos. However, repeating “Let it Play With Other” with the same old chocobo that didn’t give you any stat on that day will never gain you the stat. It seems like the system of whether you get stat bonus is based on one-time random per day per partner. *

*Kamp Kweh can raise chocobo’s attributes even after the growth stops after Day 64, so keep doing Kamp Kweh everyday will help you a lot.*

**********************
Digger Chocobo
**********************


As an owner of a Digger Chocobo, or Chocobo with more Psychological Attributes,  I would suggest this…

(Day 0 – Day 3)
Of course spam “Watch Over” on the egg.

(Day 4 – Day 18)
Feed with Zegham Carrots.
Set Care Schedule to “Listen to Music” in order to boost
Psychological StatsDiscernment and Receptivity.
*Listening to Music will decrease Physical Stats – Strength and Endurace* << But don’t worry, those are already at lowest level, Poor.
Dont forget Kamp Kweh.

(Day 19 – Day 28)
Keep feeding with Zegham Carrots. Should add Azouph Greens too, to maintain high affection level.
Change Care Schedule to “Exhibit to Public,”
boosting Discernment and Receptivity even more.
*Exhibiting to Publiv will also decrease Strength and Endurace*
*Exhibiting to Public will decrease Affection faster than Listening to Music*
Dont forget Kamp Kweh.

(Day 29 – Day 64)
Feed Zegham Carrots and Azouph Greens on regular basis.
Read your chocobo the story for Burrow, Treasure Finder, or Bore if you wish.
*You can only teach 2 skills to one chocobo*

Keep on doing the Exhibit to Public” Care Plan, but….
If you want a big, big boost on Discernment, while not caring about getting any Receptivity, use “Dig For Treasure.”
*Digging For Treasure will decrease Endurance*
*Digging For Treasure will decrease Affection much faster than Exhibiting*

Use “Raise Attribute” option, by spending 80 Chocobucks at a Chocobo Racing Authority to upgrade any stat that you want.
* Will require about 7 upgrades to fully raise the attribute 1 level, i.e. from A Bit Deficient to Average*

*Keep racing and digging for Chocobucks everyday*
Dont forget Kamp Kweh.

(Alternate methods don’t have to start right on day 29, you can start it when you feel like, or when you think you get enough stats of your desire and want to change method.)
(Day 29 – Day 64) Alternate Method 1
If you think your Chocobo has more than enough Discernment to learn any ability that you want….
(Actually, you should stock it up very high, for future decrease)

Still feed Azouph Greens for affection.
– Either feed
Zegham Carrots to compensate with the opposite Care Plan or
– Change feed to Vomp Carrots to help boost Physical Attributes.

Change Care Plan to start boosting Physical Stats instead….
– Either use “Carry Packages” to increase both Strength and Endurance, but this will lower
Discernment and Receptivity.
– Or use “Deliver Message” to big boost only Strength, while sacrificing with the loss of Receptivity.
*There’s no Care Plan that can big boost Endurance alone*
*Carrying Packages will decrease Affection as fast as Exhibiting*
*Delivering Message will decrease Affection as fast as Digging for Treasure*

Mean while, everyday, read your chocobo the story for Burrow, Treasure Finder, or Bore if you wish.
*You can only teach 2 skills to one chocobo*
*They said that even when you fail to teach the ability, reading stories to your chocobo can help increase Discernment a little*

Use “Raise Attribute” option, by spending 80 Chocobucks at a Chocobo Racing Authority to upgrade any stat that you want.
* Will require about 7 upgrades to fully raise the attribute 1 level, i.e. from A Bit Deficient to Average*

*Keep racing and digging for Chocobucks everyday*
Dont forget Kamp Kweh.

(Alternate methods don’t have to start right on day 29, you can start it when you feel like, or when you think you get enough stats of your desire and want to change method.)
(Day 29 – Day 64) Alternate Method 2
If you think your Chocobo has just barely enough Discernment to learn abilities, and don’t want it to decrease….
Change Care Plan to Basic Care to preserve Discernment (and Receptivity) while increase Strength and Endurance for small amount each day.

Still feed Azouph Greens for affection.
– Either feed
Zegham Carrots to help increase in Psylogocal Stats or….
– Change feed to Vomp Carrots to help boost Physical Stats.

Mean while, everyday, read your chocobo the story for Burrow, Treasure Finder, or Bore if you wish.
*They said that even when you fail to teach the ability, reading stories to your chocobo can help increase Discernment a little*
*You can only teach 2 skills to one chocobo*

Use “Raise Attribute” option, by spending 80 Chocobucks at a Chocobo Racing Authority to upgrade any stat that you want.
* Will require about 7 upgrades to fully raise the attribute 1 level, i.e. from A Bit Deficient to Average*

*Keep racing and digging for Chocobucks everyday*
Dont forget Kamp Kweh.

(After Day 64)
To save money, you can change feed to San d’Orian Carrots from now on.
Keep the Azouph Greens on the menu if you wish.

Since Care Plan on Schedule won’t help any stat anymore, change it to Basic Care, permanently.

Keep racing, digging, and upgrading attributes of your choice.
Keep reading the stories of your choice if your chocobo hasn’t learnt the skill.

Dont forget Kamp Kweh. You can still gain stats from Kamp Kweh at this stage.

My Chocobo, ArashiZetsuei, is now on Day 99. I’ve followed my plan carefully, making few mistakes.
I’ve raced her a lot everyday (if I didn’t forget to), earning as many Chocobucks as I could while avoid spending ridiculous amount of gil.
I’ve tried to dig for treasure and Chocobucks everyday.
I’ve used Chocobucks to upgrade her stats, as recorded in my Google Doc.
I’ve tried to do Kamp Kweh as often as I could.
Now her attributes are as follow;

Strength: Impressive (lv 6)
Endurance: Average (lv 4)
Discernment: First-Class (lv 8.)
Receptivity: Better Than Average (lv 5)

Abilities: Burrow and Treasure Finder

—————————————————————————————-

By the way, I’ve kept a record of all I’ve done in raising my chocobo in a Google Document >HERE< In case someone is interested in the details.

—————————————————————————————-

*********************
Racer Chocobo
*********************


Basically, for a Racer Chocobo, or chocobo with more Physical Attributes, we must do everything opposite to what I had done to my chocobo.

(Day 0 – Day 3)
Of course spam “Watch Over” on the egg.

(Day 4 – Day 18)
Feed with Vomp Carrots.
Set Care Schedule to “Take a Walk in Town” in order to boost
Physical Stats – Strength and Endurace.
*Taking a Walk will decrease Psychological Stats
Discernment and Receptivity* << But don’t worry, those are already at lowest level, Poor.
Dont forget Kamp Kweh.

(Day 19 – Day 28)
Keep feeding with Vomp Carrots. Should add Azouph Greens too, to maintain high affection level.
Change Care Schedule to “Carry Packages,”
boosting Strength and Endurace even more.
*Carrying Packages will also decrease Discernment and Receptivity*
*Carrying Packages will decrease Affection faster than Taking a Walk in Town*
Dont forget Kamp Kweh.

(Day 29 – Day 64)
Feed Vomp Carrots and Azoup Greens on regular basis.

Keep on doing the Carry Packages” Care Plan, but….
If you want a big, big boost on Strength (for speed), while not caring about getting any Endurance, use “Deliver Messages.”
*Delivering Messages will decrease Receptivity*
*Delivering Messages will decrease Affection much faster than Carrying Packages*
*There’s no Care Plan that can big boost Endurance alone*

Use “Raise Attribute” option, by spending 80 Chocobucks at a Chocobo Racing Authority to upgrade any stat that you want.
* Will require about 7 upgrades to fully raise the attribute 1 level, i.e. from A Bit Deficient to Average*

*Keep racing and digging for Chocobucks everyday*
Dont forget Kamp Kweh.

(Alternate methods don’t have to start right on day 29, you can start it when you feel like, or when you think you get enough stats of your desire and want to change method.)
(Day 29 – Day 64) Alternate Method 1
Before starting this method, you should boost the Strength a great deal for speed, and for future decrease.
*With very high level of Strength, you can still win races easily even with lowered Endurance*

Still feed Azouph Greens for affection.
– Either keep feeding
Vomp Carrots to compensate with the opposite Care Plan or
– Change feed to Zegham Carrots to help boost Psylogical Attributes.

Change Care Plan to start boosting Brain Stats instead….
– Either use “Exhibit to Public” to increase both
Discernment and Receptivity, but this will lower both Strength and Endurance.
– Or use “Dig for Treasure” to big boost only Discernment, while sacrificing with the loss of Endurance.
*Exhibiting to Public will decrease Affection as fast as Carrying Packages*
*Digging for Treasure will decrease Affection as fast as Delivering Messages*

Watch for your Stats, should not let your main stats drop too much, or your chocobo will become the jack of all trades who’s good at none.

Use “Raise Attribute” option, by spending 80 Chocobucks at a Chocobo Racing Authority to upgrade any stat that you want.
Either repair your Body stats, or help upgrading Brain stats.
* Will require about 7 upgrades to fully raise the attribute 1 level, i.e. from A Bit Deficient to Average*

Read your chocobo the story for Gallop, and Canter. Auto-Regen might be good too, but I honestly have no idea.
*They said that even when you fail to teach the ability, reading stories to your chocobo can help increase Discernment a little*
*You can only teach 2 skills to one chocobo*

*Keep racing and digging for Chocobucks everyday*
Dont forget Kamp Kweh.

(Alternate methods don’t have to start right on day 29, you can start it when you feel like, or when you think you get enough stats of your desire and want to change method.)
(Day 29 – Day 64) Alternate Method 2
If you  don’t want to sacrifice any of the Physical Attributes….
Change Care Plan to Basic Care to preserve
Strength and Endurance while increase Discernment (and Receptivity) for small amount each day.

Still feed Azouph Greens for affection.
– Either feed
Zegham Carrots to help increase in Psylogocal Stats or….
– Change feed to Vomp Carrots to help boost Physical Stats.

Once its Discernment reaches A Bit Deficient, start reading your chocobo the story for Gallop, and then when get Average, start teaching Canter.
*They said that even when you fail to teach the ability, reading stories to your chocobo can help increase Discernment a little*
*You can only teach 2 skills to one chocobo*

Use “Raise Attribute” option, by spending 80 Chocobucks at a Chocobo Racing Authority to upgrade only Discernment, to help speeding up the increase of chance in learning.
* Will require about 7 upgrades to fully raise the attribute 1 level, i.e. from A Bit Deficient to Average*

*Keep racing and digging for Chocobucks everyday*
Dont forget Kamp Kweh.

(After Day 64)
Same here, to save money, you can change feed to San d’Orian Carrots from now on.
Keep the Azouph Greens on the menu if you wish.

Since Care Plan on Schedule won’t help any stat anymore, change it to Basic Care, permanently.

Keep racing, digging, and upgrading attributes of your choice.
Max out your Physical stats like Strength and Endurance, and/or increase Discernment for the ease of skill-teaching.
Keep reading the stories of your choice if your chocobo hasn’t learnt the skill.

Dont forget Kamp Kweh. Your chocobo can still get bonus in stats from this activity after Day 64.

My Brother’s Chocobo, ChocolatCiel, is now on Day 89.
He has neglected his baby every once in a while, skipping the check, the feed, as well as Direct Care for 1 day for a few times.
Occasionally, he forgot to register Care Plan Schedule, so the Stables Person put his Chocobo on Basic Care, hindering the boost in stats for one or a few days each time.
I’ve raced his chocobo with moderate effort, upgrading his Discernment for several times.
I’ve tried to dig for treasure and Chocobucks with this chocobo a few times.
I’ve tried to do Kamp Kweh as often as I could, gaining more Intelligence (which I believe is Discernment) on several occasions.
Now his attributes are as follow;

Strength: First-Class (lv 8.)
Endurance:
First-Class (lv 8.)
Discernment: A Bit Deficient (lv 3)
Receptivity: Poor (lv 1)

Abilities : Gallop (Have just learned on Day 89!!!)

>>> Then on Day 96, at Average Discernment, he finally learned skill Canter!

—————————————————————————————-

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!! Finally done with writing these entries!

Took me the whole day to do this, and I was absorbed in the writing that I even forgot to have dinner muwahahahaha!!!

Well, I hope this helps. Enjoy raising your chocobo!

Well, today at Chocobo Stables in Bastok, I ran into Pitlordd again. So we did Kamp Kweh (with my bro Brunestud too) and talked a little. His chocobo seems to have a very difficult trying to win the Novice Official Race II. So, he’s considering getting a new Chocobo. I feel like writing some basic information of Chocobo Raising for my future reference, and just in case someone would need it.

Apart from picking a suitable Honeymoon Plan in order to derive the correct stat we want, as well as the correct type of ability (racer type/digger type) from correct side of parent, we will need to take a good care of the Egg, then the Chick, the Teenage Chocobo, and eventually the matured Chocobo, through out its life in the stables.

What we need :

Time. Absolutely. One hour a day or even just half an hour will do.

Chocobo’s Food. You need to pick suitable food to raise the correct stats for your chocobo.

Some money. Sometimes food and medication for chocobo requires quite an amount of money (gil).

Patience. It will take a long time before your effort yield fruits.

Research. Read a lot. But don’t believe everything. Just use other people’s strategy as a rough guideline.

Creativity. Compile information you’ve gathered, and think of the best combination to make your chocobo as good as you can. Make it suit your lifestyle as well, you can’t do exactly the same as other owner, especially if your time doesn’t allow.

—————————————————————————————-

Where to research?

Well, I read various webpages before I started raising my chocobo. As well as asking various people who had experienced in that before.

http://wiki.ffxiclopedia.org/wiki/Chocobo_Raising << This is good for general ideas. It covers everything.

http://wiki.ffxiclopedia.org/wiki/Chocobo_Raising_Guide << This explains everything about taking care of a chocobo, as well as giving the ideas of how you should raise each type of chocobo (racer/digger.)

http://wiki.ffxiclopedia.org/wiki/Breeders_Guide_by_Urat << This gives the general idea of what you should do to your chocobo during specific stage of age.

Gah!! The other page that I’ve been using to check how food influences affection is currently blocked by security systen because it seemed to be infected with malicious code or something.

—————————————————————————————-

First step: Egg Stage (Day 0 – Day 3)


As an Egg, your chocobo won’t lose any energy when you take care of it. And the only option under “Direct Care” menu is “Watch Over.” So, during the first 4 days from Day 0 to Day 4, spam “Watch Over” as much as you can. You don’t have to exit from the main menu and re-talk to the Stables Person for every “Watch.” Just select “Care for your Chocobo” from main menu, then spam “Watch Over” and “Yes,” “Watch Over” and “Yes” until you reach the number you want. I had done that to my chocobo’s egg about 40-50 times a day.

Why spam “Watch Over”?

Watch Over helps increase affection. If you manage to watch over it for 150 times or so, your egg, or chick, will have about Maximum Affection level towards you. Having max love from start will allow you to concentrate your daily chocobo care to raise its stats instead of affection. And since affection decays over time, having max affection at start will give you plenty of love to hang on.

Spamming “Watch Over” is a method that is great for every type of chocobos.

—————————————————————————————-

Second Step: Chick Stage (Day 4 – Day 18)


On the 4th day, after listening to the report from Stables Person, your chick will hatch from the egg. Now you can feed your chick (be trading food to the Stables Person) and can order Care Plan for the caretaker to do for you. You can also do “Direct Care” for each day.

Feed
Watch for the report to see how hungry your chick is. Usually you can feed it with 1 or 2 pieces of food, like 2 carrots, per day. The energy bar (similar to your own HP bar) will determine how hungry the chocobo will become tomorrow. For example, if to day you only use “Direct Care” activities to spend half of the bar, it is very likely that your chick will become just “a little hungry” instead of “starving” like when you deplete its energy to zero. It is good to use up all the energy, because then the next day you can feed it  carrots instead of 1.

Mind you though, do not over-feed your chocobo. Once the Stables Person says that it’s “Completely Full,” stop feeding. In order to avoid over-feeding without realizing it, you should feed (trade) your food one by one.

Care Plan
Not many care plans to choose from when it’s a chick.

Care Plan plays the most significant role of how your chocobo stats will develop. Check wiki guide for how each Care Plan influences stats.

To order a care plan, you must select “Set Up A Care Schedule.” Then it will show “Next Program” which indicates what was registered yesterday. From birth, your chick will be automatically under “Basic Care” Care Plan. If you change the plan today, tomorrow it will still be under “Basic Care.” Must wait until the day after tomorrow to see the “Current Care Plan” (when Stables Person report to you each day) changing into what you had newly registered.

Direct Care
Direct Care is a tool to maintain affection level. Some, however, will help in increasing specific stats. I usually take my chick to a Short Walk 2-3 times a day. Then if the bar still has enough energy left, I would “Watch Over.

Taking your chick or chocobo to a walk will eventually earn you the Key Item for “Tell A Story” direct care, which will be available once the chick grows up to teenager (adolescence).

While on the walk, your baby might find small treasure on the ground. When that happens, if you “Watch Over” your chocobo, the Stables Person will tell you to keep that treasure. Usually from Short Walk, my chick would find various kinds of grass, like Tokopekko which I kept for later use, feeding this medical grass to it on the day it got sick.

Crying At Night
On around day 8, the Stables Person will tell you your chick has been crying loud enough to wake the deads at night. It’s having a nightmare. The Stables Person will then suggest you keep a hankerchief with you for a while (like 1 real life hour) and then return it to him/her. Doing that will cure your chocobo from “Having Nightmares” status. The hankerchief will play an important role later on, too!

—————————————————————————————-

Third Step: Teenager Stage (Day 19 – Day 28)


Your chick will grows up and now you can notice if it is going to be of any special colour.

Daily care for your chococo will be similar to when it’s still a tiny chick, but you get more options.

Feed
Now if you keep making your chocobo starving by using up all the energy, and feed in a correct sequence, you should be able to feed your chocobo with 3 pieces of food each day. I would suggest 2 Carrots (or the correct type) and then 1 clump of Azouph Greens. I would also suggest feeding it one by one to avoid over-feeding. Use this sequence, Carrot => Carrot => Greens. Because if you go Carrot => Green, the chocobo will become “Completely Full” and you can’t feed the 2nd carrot of the day.

Azough Green is the green that gives the highest affection points. It is about equal to affection gained from taking chocobo to a long walk in Direct Care option.

Carrots will raise stats a tiny bit, but you must pick the correct kind of carrots.

When your Chocobo has abnormal condition like a cold, or an unjury, you will need special kind of feed to cure it. The Stables Person will tell you what kind of feed (grass, greens) you need. If you miss the message or the message glitches, just go to main chocobo menu and “Ask for your chocobo condition.”

When that happens, you must choose whether you would sacrifice tiny amount of stat boost from 1 Carrot or to sacrifice the affection from Azouph Greens. Because after feeding the chocobo a medical green or grass, although your chocobo will still appear to be starving, it will only take 2 more feeds. So, you can choose Medicine + 2 Carrots, or Medicine + 1 Carrot + 1 Azouph.

Care Plan
You now have more options to pick from. Plan it and register it wisely in order to make the most of it to boost your chocobo’s wanted stats.

Direct Care
Now you can take your chocobo to Regular Walk. On your first Regular Walk, you will meet with 3 guys who’re raising a black Chocobo named Best. After that encounter, you will find a new “Direct Care.” The “Compete Against Other” will eventually earn you one of the Key Item needed for telling a story.

Telling A Story – is a direct care which allows you to teach abilities (traits, or passive skills) to your chocobo. The stories can be obtained through various method. Your chocobo, however, is very less likely to learn any ability from any story at this age. Most stories require higher level of Discernment (intelligence) to be learnt.

—————————————————————————————-

Fourth Step: Adult Stage (Day 29 – Day 64)


Yet even more options in taking care of your chocobo. And more problems!

Oh, and from now on your chocobo will be big like other grown-up chocobos. Also, the coloured tail tips during adolescence will now become full-colour all over the body.

Feed
You still feed it the same way as previous stage.

However, occasionally your chocobo might have a new sickness called “Lovesick.” Generally the Stables Person will say it has his head in the cloud, refusing to do anything etc. This can be cured with Celerity Salad. Celerity Salad can be obtained through high level Cooking or Chocobo Hot And Cold Game.

Care Plan
You have yet more options in Care Plan or Schedule. Beware, though. Since the new plans will decrease affection significantly. So you must be careful not to skip a day in Direct Care. Failing to take care of your chocobo 1 or 2 days may result in a dramatic drop in affection level.

Direct Care
Now you can take your grown-up chocobo to a Long Walk. 1 Long Walk a day combined with 1 Azouph Greens should be able to maintain high level of affection with no trouble.

Obtaining Chocobo Whistle
Once your chocobo becomes adult, you’ll be able to activate a quest to obtain whistle. Go to San d’Oria stables and talk to Hentalion. He will tell you to try to find something that your Chocobo has been hiding. Then, each day you must take it to a walk in various length (short, regular, and long) in order to sneak a peek and steal what your Chocobo had hidden!

A few tips on this….

When on a walk, it will have new kind of message. Sometimes it will say “Your chocobo looks very happy.” When I got that message and tried to check for item, the chocobo always found out and my search would always fail. Later, when it says “Your chocobo seems totally absorbed in its activities” or something like that, my search would succeed. But then again, if the place isn’t the correct place, you would find nothing. Just move to other type of walk and keep doing this until you find THE THING!

Chocobo Racing
At this age, your chocobo can participate in a Race. You need to register with the nation’s team in order to be able to race at that nation’s Race Circuit.You just have to ask for a documentation from the Stables Person, and get a Racing Form. Then trade the racing form to Racing Authority. Then you’re all set!

When you want to race, however, do not enter the door. You only need to talk to the Race Authoroty in front of the Circuit door. (The same one you trade the Racing Form.)

If you specialized your chocobo as a racer, you can win high ranked Official Races and earn yourself some dandy trophies to put as furnitures on your Mog House. If you specialized your chocobo as a digger, you can, at least, win 3 Novice ranked Official Races and then move to Free Run (will only appear in the race menu after winning 3 Novice Races) to earn Chocobucks.

Chocobucks plays a very important role in upgrading your Chocobo’s stats past day 64.

Chocobo Hot And Cold Game
Upon obtaining your Chocobo Whistle, and then register a chocobo of your choice to respond to it, you can participate in Chocobo Hot And Cold Game, which involve digging. Each day, resetting at Japanese midnight, you can obtain 1 item for free. That grass will be what you use to call your chocobo to the digging field. After activate the participation, you’ll be able to dig in 2 places. Konschtat Highlands, and Tahrongi Canyon. Each will lead to a different path of digging license. Pick one. No, actually you can pick both. Just do one at a time.

More details can be found here >> http://wiki.ffxiclopedia.org/wiki/The_Chocobo_Hot_and_Cold_Game

What’s so good about it?

If you dig successfully, you’ll get a ticket to trade for free Chocobucks. So everyday you can earn 1, 3, or 5 Chocobucks from digging in Hot And Cold Game. It depends on how advanced the place you dig is. Places like Altep areas and Jungles (Yhoat, Yuhtunga) will earn you 5! But of course, it’s much harder to dig than beginner areas which yield only 1 Chocobuck.

You can also obtain free junks, some of which are of high value on Auction House, or even at NPC shops.

Your Chocobo Digging skill will also rise after enough successfully digs in this game.

Fifth Step: Halt in Growth (Day 64 and so on)

After Day 64, your chocobo will reportedly reach its limit of growth. Food and Care Plan will no longer increase any stats (except affection.)

So, if your Chocobo still hasn’t reached the level of stats (Strength, Endurance, Discernment, and Receptivity) that you desire, you will have to work hard, very hard, to obtain Chocobucks in order to buy Attribute Upgrades from the other Racing Authority.

—————————————————————————————-

Sixth Step: Retirement

A retirement can be requested by you at any time after your chocobo reaches adulthood. But DO NOT do that before you obtain Chocobo Whistle, otherwise you will never be able to get it except by raising a new chocobo! Also, if you want to increase any of the attributes, you should not retire it. Keep your chocobo in the stables. Because even though you can buy “R. Chocotrain Token” to upgrade your selected attribute on your retired chocobo, it costs 90 Chocobucks instead of 80 like when you order a direct upgrade on your current chocobo.

—————————————————————————————-

Gahhhh I hope that covers all of the general things to know about Chocobo Raising!

Next entry, a rough guideline on how to take care of specific type of chocobo!

*ภาษาไทยอยู่ข้างล่างนู่นนนนนน*

I’ve just noticed that after several years passed, my subconscious judgment was still the same. Although in 2004 there was >> an incident << which made me decide to not prejudge people from their angry reaction, I had forgotten about it, and resorted to this rant in my personal blog. Ah, well, I wasn’t totally angry at the person in this blog entry though. More like confused and wanted to know what on earth had caused him to do that to me. So, well, deeply somewhere in my mind I was thinking he might, after all, had a valid reason.

Reading that thread I recall this old feeling…. It really reflects the new one. I wrote “My distress wasn’t going directly to him, but more to why he had a negative assumption towards me.” and that statement is true in this new incident too.

—————————–

Hmm…. I have a category called “FFXI Friends” and now I wish I had made something like “FFXI Foes.” LOL, no, it’s not that I met an arch enemy or what, it’s just some weirdo who was openly hostile towards me at a farm. Well, I and Lu, along with my bro were farming a kind of hide for leathercraft’s merchandise (ooh I picked a fancy word!) Well, my goal was to sell the leather, though I’m main Cooking, not Tanning.

The reason why I picked this leather was that a few days ago I and Lusi went through a series of Quests in Wings of the Goddess areas and finally got the reward; ingredients for the later Gobbie Bags. However, when we returned to Jeuno, we found out that no one was selling the leather we still needed!

I looked at the price history as well as how fast the leather was sold, and I knew that at that rate if we don’t seriously camp the Auction House, I wouldn’t be able to buy any, not to mention cheap, leather. So I went out to farm the hide for us. Hoping to ask a close friend who’s a high level Tanner to help later. At first I wanted 2, then I thought oh no, what if he break some? I would have to go through all the troubles coming here to farm again. No, not a good idea. So I farmed more, aiming for just an extra piece of hide for each of us. But in the end I got 7 pieces altogether. And it turned out that Elfi never broke any :O

So, I got 5 extra squares of leather to sell. I put all of them up, all sold at the high curve of price history. I put them on the AH at high end of price margin because it would be rude to undercut people. So, well I got a big chunk of money. Good, now I could have some money to compensate my recent shopping! You know, spending 200k then 50k then 80k etc. buying new equipment really broke my heart, because I’m always poor. So, a mere 50k profit could make my heart jump!

So, today I wanted more profit, and asked Lusi to farm with me, tagging Brune along as a trio. When I first arrived at the camp, I killed 2-3 of the target enemy, then ran into a BST (/anon) who was charming one of those to fight against its own kind. Bwah! Well, Since we came later, I moved further, finding a new camp with my Wide Scan. So we camped far away from him, but at times, when we made a sweep across the length of mountains, we ran into him twice in the middle area between our camp and his camp. Anyway, he was not the problem, you see.

The problem showed up later. As a Taru…. Monk! I can’t believe my fellow Monk would be as hostile towards me! /cry! He was so cruel! Ah, although his name is beginning with “Dog” and I’m a Mithra (cat) which were supposed to be enemy to each other, I didn’t expect him to express it in this form!

Well, we ran into him while we moved from one end of the camp length to the other. I had no intention in yielding my way, because it was quite obvious we arrived first, and the mob popped so fast we couldn’t even cover the whole area before they repopped. So I thought maybe it’s alright if we share on the basis of finders keepers. But well, eventually he sent me a tell. I don’t know what pissed him off so much, probably just our presence as his competitor? Or maybe I answered something that he didn’t like hearing? lol!

The messages were like this, Orange lines are his, Purple lines are mine;

u selling hides or what?
{Synthesis} {ingredients}
i’m going to drop leather price to 4k
Killing crafters?
discouraging ppl like you =)
Like me? Honest crafters who’re farming and crafting for money? lol
lol don’t fucking tell me about honest crafters i took LC to 100 farming all but Griffon hides
and if you check price of hides i’ve done nothing but try to jack the price up
amemet NQ also

And what’s your problem with me then? I don’t understand.

Then he went quiet. I couldn’t understand his point, really.

So here’s all what I’ve guessed and thought to myself;

Maybe he was pissed that I’m competing him in his market?
– But before writing this entry, I checked the AH and found that he wasn’t selling the same leather before me.

Maybe he was pissed that I’m camping against him?
– But we arrived first. =.= That would be a ridiculous reason.

Maybe he was angry that I sold my leather at such high price?
– But I wasn’t the first person to jack up the price. I was only copying the sellers in front of me. And plus, that guy didn’t buy any.

What was his point talking about jacking up the hides price?
– I didn’t touch any hide of that kind in the AH, neither selling nor selling. So, the hides price has nothing to do with me >.>

What was his point in boasting about his farming own hide and leveling up craft to 100, after showing an intention to dump the price in that craft’s market?
– Maybe his reasoning system was broken.

If he really farmed his own Synthesis Ingredients when he leveled up his Leathercraft, why did he have to announce his hostility at me when I answered that I also wanted the ingredients? He allows himself to farm his own ingredients, but other people are evil if they farm too???
– My brother said we should just forget about him, he was just being an ass. =_=;;

He was rude and I’m offended.
– Well, I’m not going to act sissy and claim the woman’s rights here or what, because it’s online game, one can’t know if I’m a girl behind that character. But of course, I wouldn’t consider a stranger who seems to lack self-restraint and curses at someone else so easily a “nice person.” And so he doesn’t seem like a nice person at all, not to mention being unfriendly.

Is it fair for a high level crafter to dump the price of a lowbie (or mid-level) craft when it used to be a profit-making recipe for all the crafters, not only the lower level people?
No, I don’t think it is.
I know the market price swings in relation to the balance of demand and supply. So, it’s ok if the price goes up or down naturally, but if I, on purpose, kill the price, it’s not only me who lose profit margin, but also my fellow crafters. I would feel very guilty. So it’s an absolute no-no for me.
To be specific, imagine being a superior craftsman, crafting something for a profit, then when you see competitors moving in, you decide to dump the price. What would happen? The fellow craftsmen who were leveling on such recipe and selling to gain profit, either for net profit or to cover loss from other recipes, would lose the opportunity to make reasonable amount of money out of that recipe. OMG that’s just so heartless! No, I can’t do that, it’s very selfish.
I, as a Cook, never dump the price on anything I sell. When I was competing in Cooking markets, I tried to keep the price high or consistent on everything I leveled on, or crafted for profit on. When more competitors moved into a specific market I was in, and when they started undercutting to the point I could not tolerate, I moved to a new one. There’s no use helping them dumping the price. Then I would come back when they all killed their own profit and all moved out from my market, leaving the market price returned to normal. That’s what had happened to my Navarin, Dhalmel Pie, Orange Kuchen, and Shallop Tropicale markets. Killing the market will eventually kill yourself.

Then why did he talk so proudly of his absurd plan to ruin the market?
– I have absolutely no idea.

Why did he get mad at me in the first place?
– No idea, he didn’t reply to that question.

What was his definition of “ppl like you” ?
– Hmmm, it must be how he thought I was. Probably it means people who compete in his market, or people who compete in his farm? But that’s just silly, because as far as I know, I arrived before him in both. Or maybe he meant people who sells things at high price? Then again this is ridiculous, because when there’s an opportunity to make profit, it’s just natural that one would jump on it. If he despised me because of this reason, he must have something wrong in his head.

Then, what am I?
– To me I am;
— A Monk who was happily leveling up her guard skill while farming with friends.
— A Vana’diel adventurer in need of money.
— A person who saw opportunity to make some money and didn’t let it fly by.
— A decent player who avoided Beastmaster’s camp because he might be leveling up (couldn’t say for sure because he was /anon so it was impossible to tell his level)
— A competitive farmer who doesn’t yield the way to other farmer, first comes first serves.

That’s it, and the most possible reason why he got mad at me might be the last one?

Judging from how he inserted a swearing word in his reply immediately after I mentioned “honest crafters,” maybe he has some grudge about that?
– Probably. But I really have no idea and see no connection.

———————————————————————————————

Well, from my point of view I cannot understand him any tiny bit. And it seemed he was so hostile that he didn’t want to nicely explain to me, he even disregarded my bottom line question. Well, you can’t correct your behavior if the person would not tell you what you did wrong, right? It won’t help the society to improve any bit if one keeps getting mad at people without giving them proper suggestion or advice. It’s like giving a negative comment on a piece of work from someone, and you scold the owner of the work. If the person is not an expert and he couldn’t figure what’s wrong with his work, how on earth could he go back and improve it? It’s just ridiculously heartless, don’t you think?

I always hate people who only scold or curse without giving any advice. It’s like they just talk badly to you just because they want to bash someone, not because they want the righteousness or want to help any person. If one want to help the society, don’t just give negative comment, but guide it to the correct direction too! That’s how human, as a social animal, help each other make the world a better place.

Oh, and be polite!

I also hate people who don’t treat strangers well. I’ve read from somewhere, and I really agree and like it, that you could roughly judge whether a person is nice or evil by looking at the way he treats strangers and treats people who don’t give him profit or advantage. Also, it’s said that people usually reveal their true colour when they’re upset or when don’t get what they want. If they get rude right away, it probably means they’re rude by nature.

P.S. It’s really my first time to run into such a hostile farming competitor (except that RMT group who tried to MPK us) and it really made me sad to have known such a person exists in the beautiful world of Vana’diel and, most of all, to have been unlucky enough to run into one.

P.S.2 To be honest, at first I intended to be on this market just temporarily, but since he provoked me that much, I felt like I want to compete with him and see how he will kill his own profit in the end, lol.

ภาษาไทย….ตอนแรกว่าจะเขียนภาษาไทย ไหงกลายเป็นภาษาอังกฤษฟะ เอาเป็นว่าสรุปเหตุการณ์ย่อ ๆ แล้วแอบด่ามันเฉพาะส่วนที่เกี่ยวกับบทสนทนาละกัน อย่างอื่นมันยาวไป เพราะเราขี้บ่น

– ตอนแรกเรากับลูเพิ่งไปทำเควสต์ในโลกอดีต เอาไอเทมไปทำ Gobbie Bag แต่พอทำเสร็จ (วิ่งอย่างเยอะ ใช้เวลาทั้งหมดนานมาก แทบกระอัก) ปรากฏว่าที่จูโน่ไม่มีหนังขาย….
– ก็เลยไปฟาร์มเอาหนังดิบมา จะให้เอลฟี่ช่วย synth ให้
– ฟาร์มสองอันก็กลัวเอลฟี่ทำแตก ขี้เกียจกลับมาหาเสืออีก เลยฟาร์มไปเผื่อ
– เผื่อไปเผื่อมา สุดท้ายได้มาตั้ง 7 อัน แถมเอลฟี่ทำไม่แตกเลยด้วย ก็เลยต้องเหลือ เอาไปขาย 5 อัน
– ขายหมด ได้เงินเยอะ เพราะออกแพงด้วย ติดขอบบน ๆ ของวงจรราคาอ่ะ
– ติดใจ อยากได้เงินอีก เลยไปฟาร์มอีก พา Brune กับ Lusi ไปด้วยกัน แต่ย้ายแคมป์ไปตีตัวยากหน่อย
– ไปถึงเจอ BST ไม่รู้เลเวลอะไร กำลังใช้เสือไปสู้เสือ เลยย้ายไปแคมป์ถัดไป
– บางทีก็วิ่งมาเจอ BST คนนั้นบ้าง เแถว ๆ ตรงพรมแดนระหว่างซีกเรากับซีกเขา มีเผลอแย่งเสือกันบ้าง แต่ก็ไม่ได้มีปัญหาอะไร
– ตัวปัญหามาทีหลัง ชื่อขึ้นต้นด้วย Dog
– แรก ๆ ก็ไม่อะไร แย่งกันเคลม ใครดีใครได้ เราไม่เดือดร้อน เพราะเสือเกิดไว
– ตอนหลังจู่ ๆ ไอ้ทารุมองค์คนนั้นก็ /tell มาอย่างที่เห็น
– สีส้มเป็นคำถามของมัน สีม่วงเป็นคำตอบของเรา สองอย่างนี้ลอกมาจากในเกมเปี๊ยบ ๆ ส่วนสีดำเป็นคำวิจารณ์ที่เขียนขึ้นในบล็อกนี้เฉย ๆ

u selling hides or what? – ถามทำไมวะ
{Synthesis} {ingredients} – อ่ะ ตอบไปตามตรง แต่ไม่ใช่ของให้ตูคราฟท์หรอกนะ เอาให้ Elfi นู่น
i’m going to drop leather price to 4k – เหรอ? แล้วไง? บอกตูทำไมอ่ะ?
Killing crafters? – นั่นเดะ จะดึงราคาลงทำไม เดือดร้อนชาวบ้าน กำไรหายหมด ประสาท!
discouraging ppl like you =) – “like you” เออ แล้วคนประเภทตูมันเป็นไงวะ?
Like me? Honest crafters who’re farming and crafting for money? lol – ตูหาเงิน ตูฟาร์ม ตูคราฟท์(แต่ไม่ใช่ leather นะ 555)
lol don’t fucking tell me about honest crafters i took LC to 100 farming all but Griffon hides – ทำไมต้องฟัคด้วยสาด หยาบคาย แล้วจะโม้ทำเหียกไร ตูไม่ได้ถามเฟ้ย
and if you check price of hides i’ve done nothing but try to jack the price up – ไม่เช็คเพราะตูไม่ใช่คนฟอกหนัง มีไรป่ะ 555 แล้วเอ็งดึงราคาขึ้นแล้วมันเกี่ยวไรกะตู?
amemet NQ also
– แล้วไง? =_=
And what’s your problem with me then? I don’t understand. – ใช่ ๆ หาเรื่องไมวะ หาเรื่องแล้วมีโม้ทับอีก ถามก็ไม่ตอบ เอ้า…. ท่าจะบ้า

สรุปก็คือมันบ้าใช่ป่ะ? กวนว่ะ ไม่เข้าใจ พูดจาเลอะเลือนเพ้อเจ้ออ่ะ ไม่ได้เกี่ยวกันเล้ย เหตุผลน่ะมีมั้ย??? แต่ละอย่างไม่ได้เกี่ยวข้องเป็นเหตุเป็นผลกันเลย มีคนแย่งฟาร์มแล้วเกี่ยวอะไรกับ dump price ? แล้วไอ้ dump price เนี่ย คนดี ๆ เค้าไม่ทำกันเฟ้ย เพราะมันเดือดร้อนเพื่อนร่วมอาชีพ โห่ ๆ ๆ แม่งแย่งฆ่าไม่ทันแล้วพาลป่าววะ? ไม่เข้าใจเลย คนอะไร ไม่มีเหตุผล…. ถามดี ๆ ดันตอบกลับมาหยาบ ๆ แล้วถามคำถามสำคัญก็ไม่ตอบ (ประโยคสุดท้าย “เขม่นอะไรตู? ตูไม่เข้าใจเอ็ง”) เฮ้อ ประสาท!

เจอคนแบบนี้แอบเสียสุขภาพจิตอ่า…. คนแบบนี้ก็มีด้วยเหรอ แม้งงงงงงง แถมตูยังซวยเจอเข้าจัง ๆ อีก เว่ยยยย เซ็งเป็ด!

คือแบบ ตูทำไรผิดวะ? ไม่เข้าใจ ถามก็ไม่บอก ตอบกวน ๆ อีก แล้วยังมาโม้เหม็นบ้าบออะไรของมัน แทนที่จะบอกว่าตูทำไรผิดจะได้แก้ไข เฮ้อ คนบ้า คนประสาท คนผีทะเล ไม่อยากเจอหน้ามันอีกเลย เวลาไปฟาร์มหนัง ขออย่าให้เจอมันอีกเลยเถิดดดดดดด สาปส่ง กรวดน้ำ ลาก่อน!

I wish Dogmangler of Sylph find and  read this, so that maybe he would explain to me why he bahaved in such a hostile way. So I sneakily mention his full name for the Google search engine to find in here.

Heh! Well, since I’ve been babysitting my brother’s chocobo, I’ve noticed a few BIG differences in appearance between my red chocobo and his black chocobo.
Really, they look obviously different that you could tell at just a glance.

ArashiZetsuei (red) is a Digger Chocobo. She currently has First-Class discernment.
ChocolatCiel (black) is a Runner Chocobo, currently First-Class in both Strength and Endurance.

Of course we can see the beaks….that really stand out in contrast.
Arashi has got a pair of beaks that look as if they can slam through a Galka’s skull >.>
And the feathers on the head also look bigger, thicker, and longer.

Well, both of them have large eyes (I’ve seen other chocobo with noticably narrower eyes) but ChocolatCiel’s eyes seem a bit rounder?

Next, the legs and feet. I can’t see any difference here except for the skin pattern. The size looks identical, right?

Then, the butts, oops, I meant the tails!

Look! His chocobo has more tailfeathers then than mine!

Let’s see these tails closer…. in a better angle.

ChocolatCiel has 3 layers of tailfeathers while ArashiZetsuei has only 1! Not counting the short layer extending from the back towards tail though.

This is fun XD I wish SE had made chocobo’s appearance more various than this, and I’d like a purple (I mean real purple, not bluish) chocobo!

For those who cannot read Thai, if you wish to know what’s written in here…. Either because you need the information, because you want to know what happened, or even because you’re just curious, please leave me a comment saying so. I’ll translate things into English for you as soon as possible. This also applies to any other entry of my blog.

พอได้แต้ม Zeni กันมากพอแล้ว ก็พากันไปไถ Pop Item จากตาลุง จุดหมายแรกก็คือ Gigiroon หนูนรกใน Alzadaal ครั้งนี้เปลี่ยนจ๊อบกันจ้าละหวั่น ลูเปลี่ยนจาก PLD => RNG บรูนจาก NIN => RNG เอ๊ะ คนอื่นเปลี่ยนอะไรมั่งนะ….? ไม่ค่อยแน่ใจละ เหอ ๆ เอาเป็นว่าจัดทีมใหม่ก็แล้วกัน เพราะ Mita pop พอดี เลยถูกเรียกให้มาทางนี้ เจ้าตัวกำลังโดนเรียกไปช่วย Salvage พอดี แต่เขาเลือกพวกเรามากกว่า (อ๊ายยย น่ารักที่ซู้ดดด)

ส่วน Jibb (Max) กับ Stefy พอเขารู้ว่าเรากำลังจะไปลุยกันก็รีบถามเลยว่า มีอะไรให้ช่วยมั้ย! แหม ถามงี้ก็เสร็จโจรดิวะ มีเหรอจะบอกว่าไม่ต้องมา…. เราก็เลยเรียกเขามาช่วยด้วยทั้งสองคน อิอิ ^^)b

Lusian RNG

Ranger ของ Lusi เพิ่งเลเวล 74 เท่านั้น แต่เปรี้ยวมากค่ะ

ดูหน้าตาแล้วไม่ได้หล่อล้ำไปกว่านินจาเลย (เราชอบนินจามากกว่า ไม่รู้ทำไมเหมือนกัน) แต่หมวกดูดีนะ เราชอบหมวกใบนี้ แต่ดูชุดมันประหลาด ๆ เป็นแฟชั่นที่พิลึกอยู่ กร๊ากกก

พวกแรก ๆ ที่วิ่งมาถึงและรวมกลุ่มกันก่อนมีประมาณนี้

The team

หายไปสองคนมั้ง คือ Aika ที่เฝ้าจุด ??? กับ Stefy ที่ยังมาไม่ถึง

ระหว่างรอก็ถ่ายรูปซี้ซั้วเล่น ๆ ไปเรื่อย

Random pic

เอลฟี่แม่งเอ็กซ์ว่ะ โชว์สะดือ 555+

ช่วงนี้ลูก็วางแผนนู่นนี่ไปเรื่อย จัดทีม สลับคนเข้า-ออกตี้ของ Alliance (เพราะเรามีตั้ง 2 PT แน่ะ) ส่วนกิมจิ…. ไม่รู้กระซิบกระซาบอะไรกับลีโอ หัวเราะหันคิก ๆ คัก ๆ แล้วกิมจิก็พูดขึ้นว่า “Hey Lu, someone said you’re gay.” แล้วไอกะก็หัวเราะแล้วบอกว่า “I think he hear that everyday.”  กร๊ากกกกกกกกก ชั่วร้ายมากคับพี่น้อง แต่ละคนแม่งรุมลู…. (ตูก็ด้วย?) ซึ่งอาการของกิมจิกับลีโอ ทำให้เราสงสัยว่า สองคนนี้ต้องสุมหัวนินทาอะไรลูอยู่แน่ ๆ ฮ่า ๆ ๆ ๆ ชั่วร้ายมาก! (ไม่ใช่อะไร แค่ข้องใจ ทำไมไม่ให้ตูร่วมวง!!!) เสร็จแล้ว กิมจิก็เพิ่งหันไปเห็นหน้าลีโอชัด ๆ แล้วก็ร้องอุทานขึ้น!!

Uncle Leonidus

ประมาณว่าเฮ้ ดูดิ ลีโอหน้าแก๊แก่!!! เราก็หัวเราะ แล้วบอกว่า คอยดูคุณลุงเต้นระบำเถอะ (เพราะลีโอเคยเปรย ๆ ว่าอยากเล่น DNC)

เอาล่ะ กลับเข้าเรื่อง…. ไอ้ตัว Cheese Bomberman นี่มีคนต้องการ pop 2 คนคือ Aika กับ Elfi อืมมม เนื่องจากพวก Qiqirn ที่นี่มีกันเกลื่อนมาก และห้องที่มี ??? ไว้ pop NM ก็ไม่ปลอดภัย ลูจึงเสนอแผนขึ้นมา (หลังจากวิ่งวนจนเวียนหัว เพราะหาแคมป์ถูกใจไม่ได้ซะที) คือ ให้ทุกคนไปรออยู่ในห้องที่ปลอดภัยที่จะใช้เป็นแคมป์ แล้วให้คนป๊อปไปรอที่ ??? ระหว่างทางมีผู้ช่วย คอยรอซัพพอร์ทสองคน หนึ่งคือ Leo พาลาดิน ไว้ Provoke และดึง hate จาก NM ไว้ไม่ให้มัน depop แต่ต้องดึงเฮทต่อเมื่อไอกะวาร์ปใน portal หนีไปแล้วและพวก link, add พวกนั้นมัน depop ไปซะก่อน…. นี่คือด่านแรก ด่านที่สองใช้ Brune เรนเจอร์ ให้คอยยิงสอยหัวมันถ้าบังเอิญ NM เดินช้าและวิ่งมาไม่ถึง Leo หรือจะให้ Shadow Bind ไว้ก็ได้….. พอลูบรรยายเสร็จ วางตำแหน่งคนเสร็จ ก็มีคนบ่น ๆ ขึ้นว่า ก็แค่ฆ่า clear room ซะให้เกลี้ยงก็พอแล้ว ฆ่าง่ายจะตายมีคนตั้งเยอะ บลา ๆ ๆ

พวกเราก็เลยตะลุยไปฆ่าฝูงหนูตลอดตามรายทางไปจนถึงห้อง ??? แต่แบบ กว่าจะกลับมาถึงแคมป์ ก็….. ผ่านไปแล้ว 4 นาทีครึ่ง กร๊าก…. ทานโทษ ได้ข่าวว่า repop มัน 5 นาที ฮ่า ๆ แสรด!!!

แต่ก็ เกิดได้ด้วยดี และไอกะก็วิ่งถึกมาถึงห้องแคมป์จนได้ (พลังลดไปแค่ครึ่งหลอดเอ๊งงง จิ๊บ ๆ) เราก็ลงมือตะลุมบอน…. แต่แบบม่างงง อีนี่เลวโคตร Bomberman ชัด ๆ! แถมโคตรวิ่งเลย ลูบอกว่าเวลามันวิ่งหนีแล้ววางระเบิด อย่าไปตามมัน ให้หลบระเบิด แล้วให้เมจใช้โอกาสนี้นั่งฟื้น MP ซะ…. อืม ก็ไม่เลว เอาวะ นั่งก็นั่ง  และแล้วพอมันจะวิ่งกลับมา ลูก็จะตะโกน It’s coming back! From South! บลา ๆ ๆ เราก็จะเตรียมพร้อม…. WHM วิ่งเข้าไป Barfira แล้ววิ่งหนีออกมาในระยะปลอดภัย BLM เตรียท nuke ส่วน RNG รอยิงสอย… DD อื่น ๆ พร้อมประจันบาญ

ปัญหาก็คือ เวลาโดนระเบิด…. และแวลาที่มันกลับเข้ามาใหม่ มันจะพยายามฆ่า Stefy ให้ได้ เพราะก่อนมันหนีไป คุณเธอยิงซะแรงทุกรอบ ๆ Stefy เลยเป็นเป้าฆ่าอันดับ 1 =_+;; แล้วเราก็….ยืนหมุนไปหมุนมา เพราะไม่ได้อยู่ตี้เดียวกัน เห็นเกจพลังว่ากำลังจะตายแต่ target ไม่เจอ T.T โอยเศร้า สุดท้ายจิ๊บก็ตายตกไปตามแฟน เพราะเป็นคนที่ Cure หนักที่สุด…. ดึงเฮทแรงไปเลย

Jibb down

พอมันฆ่าจนหนำใจแล้วก็หนีไป…. ปล่อยพวกเรากู้ศพ และเติมพลังกันก่อน

รอบถัดมา…. ทุกคนบอกว่า ให้ลีโอพยายามดึงเฮทไว้ อย่าให้มันหนีไป เพื่อให้เมจช่วยกันยิงถล่ม ๆ ๆ ๆ ลีโอก็ทำหน้าที่เป็นอย่างดี จนโดนมันยืนกระซวก กระซวก และกระซวก….

โทษนะ ตูโง่เอง…. เห็นทุกอย่างเต็มตา แต่ Cure ไม่ออก…. แม่งมาดูทีหลังพบว่าเพราะติดเสาบัง อ๊าก ไอ้สลัด!!!!!!! แล้ว Cure V ที่กำลังร่ายหลังจากร่ายออกในที่สุด ก็ไปได้แค่ครึ่งทาง…. ลีโอก็ลงไปนอนตายเรียบร้อย…. หอกส์!!!

Leo down, Jibb down again

Stoneskin-ga from Aika is very useful.

เอาล่ะ แล้วมันก็วิ่งหนีไปอีก เราเรสลีโอด้วย R2 (เพราะ MP ไม่พอ T^T) แล้วลีโอก็วิ่งไปแอบที่ห้องข้าง ๆ…. เมจไปกระจุกกันนั่งรอ MP ที่มุมนึง ส่วนคนอื่นรอมันกลับมาลุยต่อ… แต่สิ่งที่เราเห็นตอนกำลังนั่งก็คือ…. ระเบิดอีกรอบ ตรูม ๆ ๆ ๆ ๆ ลีโอที่อยู่ห้องถัดไปโดนรัศมีระเบิดตาย T.T เช้ดดดด ไอ้หนูนรกนี่

สุดท้ายพอฆ่ามันเสร็จ (ของดรอปครบเลย ใช่ป่ะ ไอกะดวงดีวุ้ย) ลีโอก็ต้องไปนอน แล้ว Dark ก็มาแทน ด้วย RNG อิอิ ตอนนี้เรามี Shadow Bind 3 อันแล้ว! เปลี่ยนแผน ใช้ SB ดึงตีนมันแทน แล้วให้เมจยิงแรง ๆ

Second pop

ผองเพื่อนมากันอย่างอุ่นหนาฝาคั่ง

รอบนี้เริ่มฉลาดขึ้น เลยมีคนตายน้อยลง แต่รู้สึกว่าจะดรอปแต่ Trophy item นะ

สำเร็จไปอย่างงดงาม มีคนตายเยอะหน่อยแต่เรายังไม่ตาย กรั่ก ๆ รอบนี้คนตายถี่สุดคือ BLM คือ Stef กับ Kim ส่วน Jibb โดนลูกหลง แฮ่ ๆ

อุอุอุ เมื่อเร็ว ๆ นี้พวก Lusi กับ Brune คุยกันแล้วเกิดกิเลส อยากได้นู่นนี่ ก็เลยรื้อฟื้นโครงการทัวร์ ZNM ขึ้นมาอีก แล้วรวมกลุ่มกันไปล่ารูปภาพ ซึ่งตาเฒ่าหัวงูคุณลุง Sanraku แกก็มีอารมณ์หื่นศิลปินอยากได้รูปถ่ายนมตู้มนังปิศาจงู สรุปว่าพวกเราถ่อไป Arrapago Reef ด้วยการ….. ด้วยการ…. @_@ ด้วยการวิ่งตามตูด Lusi…. เฮ้ย!!! เราไปกันยังไงฟะ?? เพราะตอนไปรอบแรก Leo ยังไม่มี Ilrusi Atoll Staging Point อ่ะ เอ่อ อ่าาาาาาาาา โอย สมองเสื่อม เมื่อคืนตามตูดชาวบ้านไปอย่างเบลอ… เออ เอาเป็นว่าเราก็ไปในที่ที่เป็นถ้ำ ๆ มีพวก Fallen อยู่นิดหน่อย และมี Merrow อึ๋มให้ถ่ายรูปตัวนึง

Merrow

นี่คือฝูงคนหื่น ทั้งสาว(Mithra)แท้ สาว(Mithra&Hume)เทียม และหนุ่ม ๆ รวมทั้งแก่ 1 คน ที่ไปรุมถ่ายรูปอึ๋มดึ๋ง ๆ ของนังงูสาว….

Merrow

ที่ยืนใกล้ ๆ นี่ไม่ใช่อะไรหรอกนะ โดน Horde Lullaby…. กันน่ะสิ แสรด!

แล้วมัน resist ทั้ง Repose ทั้ง Sleep ไม่รู้จะ resist หาโคตรพ่อโคตรแม่หรือไง ยิงไปประมาณ 10 ที เห็นจะได้ เป็น Sleep ซะ 3 Repose อีก 7  มี Sleep ติดแค่หนเดียวเท่านั้น นอกนั้น Resist หมด รวมทั้งตอน ELemental Seal Repose ด้วย กูข้องใจอ้ะ…. เลยลองแล้วลองอีก จนโดนตบ แล้วโดน Brune ตะโกนด่าใน PT chat ;_;  แง ก็กูข้องใจนี่นา….. อีงูสลัด!!! อีบ้า!

อืมมม แล้วพอถ่ายรูปได้ครบ (กระเป๋าเต็มน่ะสิ แต่ละคนนี่ inventory แทบระเบิดแล้วมั้ง มีการ trade ฝากของกันจ้าละหวั่นเลย ส่วนเราก็อัดแน่นไปด้วยภาพของตัวเอง 22 ใบ ของไอกะอีก 5 เหอ ๆ ๆ) พวกเราก็ไปออก Arrapago Reef เพื่อวิ่งพา Leo ไปเอา Staging Point ปรากฏว่าระหว่างทาง Kanna เต้นไม่ดูตาม้าตาเรือ ระหว่างที่จะ Spectral Jig ก็เลยอะโกรศัตรูมาตัวนึง ร้อนถึงเพื่อน ๆ ต้องรุมด่าวิ่งมาช่วย

Aggroed
