Waiting for Stormblood now, I dug up some of my recent screenshots.
It’s hard to steal a group shot of our FC. :( Especially when /gpose kept making Dew turn away from the camera. This is weird. It sometimes happened with specific emotes, but I don’t know what caused it.
Kuji siting on the fire with his shield on fire. LOL
Before Kuji arrived, Dew, Corn and I went to Dun Scaith and had quite an ordeal with the party/alliance. People died a lot. They died way too much, including my healer buddy. ><;; Sad panda. It was extremely exhausting!
After whining about Kuji’s being late, I showed him my new hair from Gold Saucer event.
I actually changed to new hair since a few days ago, after I finished the event. And Corn happened to change to the new hair too. He saw mine when we got into Baelsar’s Wall for Bray’s Main Q and he laughed.
Good pic in front of the boss room, but Corn’s Garuda photobombed my face. T_T
Lately, Corn had shifted to playing SMN instead of PLD. I guess he got tired of tanking and found a new fun in the DEEPS zone. He seems chirpy and energetic when he shredded the horde of enemies into pieces with his magick. Nowadays he goes to roulettes with us on his SMN about 98% of the time.
Today, too, he was on SMN. And we were about to do some unsync runs for the kitten’s sticker book (Wondrous Tails) but I was distracted by the new teaser trailer, drooling at the monks sparring. I changed to Monk to admire my new gearset, which Corn and I and Diver crafted yesterday. Then there was a kaching and I realized Corn entered CoB T1 while I was on my monk. XD
I was like “Oh shit, I’m on monk.” But Corn said “I know.”
So, yeah we went on and killed the trash mobs. Corn died at the last mass pull before I could kill the damn Golem. I finished off the few mobs that were still alive, and we tacked the epic Snake.
Long story short, after letting Corn tank one half of the snake while Titan-Egi tanked the first half, Corn died and Titan went poof! So both halves of the snake came after me, and merged. I tried to put up the fight best I could, but I died. Corn went homepoint after he died so he didn’t see my epicness. As, after I died for about a second, the snake also died. We double-KO. lol
I swear I didn’t remember using Blood for Blood. I never used Blood For Blood while straight-tanking anything. So I guess it was either I used it when Titan was still alive, or I accidentally smashed the button while in frenzy. I would have been so bummed out if we didn’t win. So that DoT was a nice save!!!
OMG I’m freaking out!!! We finally downed Bahamut, CoB T13 (Final Coil of Bahamut, Turn 4).
Today we gathered again and tackled T13 once more. Corn needed a minute, so I took that opportunity to take some group pics. XD Sorry, Kuji, first pic has you with very evil face HAHAHA.
Must love /gpose new feature that allows party to stop looking at the camera. :D
During the fight, I was derping really badly, even managed to die TWICE, and only remembered to take 3 pics.
Today we surprisingly took only 1 attempt to win.
It’s really nice to beat Coil of Bahamut with close friends. :D (We always go in as small group, partly because I fear drama. I heard about drama and endless drama involving endgame raid and I’m scared. The fight is very intense, and everyone could be on the verge of flipping shit. So I guess we kind of never wanted to struggle with recruiting more raid members ><;; You know, even with this tight-knitted, laid-back and light-hearted team, we yelled at each other or got pouty on occasions during Coil runs. We prevailed while managing to preserve good relationship only because we’re very close, whereas I don’t have the same confidence for loyalty and forgiveness from other people as I have with these guys. We’re also casual players and other average raid players won’t like us or our messy/random schedule, hahaha!)
Today we tried T11 again, with 5 people, as usual. After countless wipes during the 48 minutes of pain and agony (LOL) and screaming into Dew’s ear through Skype voice call (making her panic a lot, sorry, Dew!) we finally fell the Mechanical Hydra beast.
Deadaga XD Wiping so many times it got a little bit frustrating and discouraging. But we did see the potential, and kept practicing. Corn was our strategy man, and both PZ and Dew contributed by recalling, through dying over and over, some gimmicks that were originally forgotten and telling us what to do.
Below were the pics from our successful attempt. It was frustrating to solo heal because everyone were like dying left and right and in the midst of the chaos, I could hardly maintain my composure and cool head. I feel bad for Dew because I was yelling into the voice call when I panicked or got mad XD but Dew said it’s ok, we’re even, because she yelled at me when PZ and Kuji were killing her add too fast, too. Haha. She was like, please type for me, “go help Corn.” And I was like “NO NO NO NO Why is PZ dying” and “WTF my heal can’t reach!” and couldn’t type for her. XD And she was like “DON’T ATTACK MY ADD OHMIGOD” “NO!” in the voice call because she couldn’t type very well while fighting. Poor thing lol.
Finally won. Again, I couldn’t stop cackling. XD I laughed so hard I even woke up Q-chan, my Sugar Glider.
Wheeeeeeeeeeee~ I’m so happy today.
Corn even got a Dreadwyrm robe for his SMN. It’s so purdy!!!
Today after an Expert Roulette, I got a brief opportunity to try to get a group pic. But Kuji had to leave the house in real life, so he dove off so I only got just 1 group pic in my folder LOL.
Yeah we have 4 regulars nowadays. PZ doesn’t log on every weekend anymore. He’s kind of addicted to some other new games (or his old, unfinished games, LOL!) We can still ask him to hop on to help with stuff, like Dew’s CoB clear the other day. While Bray seems to have completely quit since the rise of 3.1.
Anyway, look at this pic. It’s not easy to set a male Au Ra in the same picture frame with a Lalafell. XD Hard to balance the crop, you know.
If I want to zoom in at this distance, and want to see the whole body of Dew, Corn’s head will be cropped off at the top. Like the pic above. But if I want to see the sky, and Corn’s SMN horn, Dew is cropped at the waist. XD
Solution? Dew jumped onto the rail of the Living Arch and eliminate the height difference. All happy now. If Kuji were there, he would have to go on the rail on the opposite side, next to me. XD
Today I was able to steal some nice shots of Corn and myself at Vanu Vanu beast tribe. All thanks to the /gpose thingie.
It’s been difficult to really take good screenshots of Corn, because when he’s out in the sun, he hardly stays still, due to the demand of beast tribe quests. And when he goes AFK in the house or in front of the house, it’s usually either too dark or raining, or he’s not in PLD outfit.
OK it’s now 4 A.M. and I need to make myself sleep XD Night night all.
This morning I made a “Sanpai” parody of Corn and post it on tumblr because this blog had server problem. ; ;
Now that the server is back, and my blog is up and running again, I’m putting those screenshots here as well. :D
The blacklist bit is based on a conversation in the FC weeks ago, which went like this (not exact wording):
Kuji: Oh hey, I heard they’re bringing back the mentor system. Will you mentor the new people? Corn: No. My secrets belong to me only. Me: LOL. But didn’t you have a stalker who kept calling you senpai, senpai? And you did tutor him! Kuji: Ohh poor thing. His senpai didn’t notice him. Corn: I did notice him. He’s now on my blacklist. Kuji: o_o oh that’s so cold. Me: Well, he was quite a….troublesome kohai. Corn: He was a jerk. Kuji: LOL fair enough.
Hibernating to pass the time, lol! Well, I haven’t been well this week and didn’t get smooth sleep at night, so I ended up getting very sleepy in the afternoon. So I often crawl in bed and do the time warp thing. Today I was knocked out around 6 PM and then woke up starving when it was almost midnight. ><;;
By the way, PhotoScape is a nice photo editor program. I need a program that allows the use of layers and eraser, like Photoshop, though. Still looking for more programs for my PC.
