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 So, my Great Axe, mostly untouched, became out-of-date.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 And my Sword/Axe were outdated.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!
My first Raging Rush ever!
And it went Critical hehehe!
This is a fun WS!! I like it already.
