Goodbye Heavensward – En Taro Adun

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

Dew A9

Put this here because Dew needed explanation/translation, as the guy was complaining a lot and amid the busy fight, Dew couldn’t understand all the details, so she copied the text and asked me to tell her what and why people said those things. I also wrote my own opinion in English, in case anyone involved, especially Kuma Leeno, would stumble here and read this, I hope they will start to understand Dew a little.

[3:39](Kuma) wake up tank

[3:44](Ahzek) this shouldnt be hard คนนี้บอกว่าอันนี้ไม่ควรยาก
[3:44](Kuma) it’s barely a raid when it’s that simple บอกว่าอันนี้ง่ายขนาดนี้ แทบไม่ควรเรียกว่าเหรดด้วยซ้ำ
[3:48](Ahzek) hellooooo!
[3:48](Kuma) like ahzek said อันนี้บอกว่าใช่ อย่างที่ข้างบนบอก (มันไม่ควรยาก)
[3:48](Kuma) chibidew cmon man do your job
[3:48](Chibidew) sorry :(
[3:49](Kuma) it’s ok, but next time grab aggrp ตรงนี้คือมันบอกว่าไม่เป็นไร คราวหน้าให้เอาแอ๊ดไว ๆ หน่อย
[3:49](Kuma) aggro
[3:49](Chibidew) run to me please I don’t see add

Although it was true that Dew couldn’t see the spawn as fast as everyone, due to the lag, and thus was why she couldn’t provoke big Faust faster than the monk hitting it, and thus said sorry (and sometimes lag kills her macro, too). here I personally feel Dew said it wrong. She should have said “run to me, here is safe spot”
Because, according to Dew, that monk was trying to fight big Faust in the quarter where the lava was coming next (to my knowledge, after reading a strategy guide, if lava comes up and burn it while big Faust is alive, it will explode and wipe the party)

The party should drag the big Faust around and then put it where lava is coming next, only when it’s nearly dead. When it has a lot of HP, placing it on the lava destination is, of course, going to cause a wipe.

[3:49](Kuma) there’s like a whole different light on the plateform อันนี้มันบอกว่ามีแสงเวลา Faust ใหญ่เกิด
[3:49](Kuma) everything turn purple ทุกอย่างจะกลายเป็นสีม่วง
[3:49](Kuma) + an aoe dmg แล้วมี AoE ทำให้เจ็บด้วย
[3:49](Kuma) u should see it “ต้องเห็นดิ”

I’m completely lost here, but Dew said he could be referring to the meteor drops. Then, she rewatched a guide video and saw that he’s referring to big Faust spawn. But tell ya what, she never saw the purple while in the fight, because everyone goes to hide on the other side of the boss, and thus the view is blocked. 

[3:49](Kuma) just get reactiv (อันนี้ไม่เข้าใจ ให้ไปชุบอะไรเหรอ? หมายถึงขยะหุ่นปะวะ? — I can’t understand “get reactiv” and what it might refer to.)
[3:49](Kuma) and stop reviving that god damn hell spider at start อันนี้มันโวยวายเรื่องไปปลุกแมงมุมผิดตัว
[3:49](Kuma) she’s dead
[3:49](Kuma) in the right place
[3:50](Kuma) at the right moment
[3:50](Kuma) let her be มันบอกว่าแมงมุมตัวนั้นอยู่ตรงนั้นถูกแล้ว อย่าไปปลุกมันขึ้นมา

Here Dew was completely lost again, because on her main server, the Japanese wake up all adds and kill them all at the lava spot. They don’t skip any add.

[3:52](Kuma) row (row อะไรก็ไม่รู้??? ไม่เก็ต  — row what? I don’t understand either)
[3:52](Kuma) the add อันนี้เรียกให้ตีแอ๊ด (ที่พี่เรย์เฝ้าอยู่?)
[3:52](Kuma) the fkin freakin add
[3:52](Kuma) chewbidew
[3:52](Kuma) wake up

After getting told off last time, Dew was already waiting for the big Faust add at where it was spawning. She provoked and flash, But the monk still screamed. And she couldn’t pull it off the lava fast enough, so it stuck to the monk and exploded. (What’s funny is that he kept dying in the explosion because he kept trying to kick Faust’s ass in the lava??? Why don’t bring it out of the lava before it rises? O_o??)


It exploded and party died, so the monk was mad bro again.

Dew told me she was on PLD (her mistake, because she’s better as WAR, on PLD her reaction is a bit slow, and when it’s laggy, it gets even worse.) Anyway, I wonder why he just stood there slamming his fists on it instead of running to the safe spot to drag it along. Screaming doesn’t seem to help the survival rate.

[3:53](Kuma) my last piece of hope has vanished มันงอแงว่าความหวังชิ้นสุดท้ายของมันได้สลายไปแล้ว
[3:53](Principia) Do the impossible อันนี้น่าจะร้องเพลง มั้ง???
[3:53](Principia) See the invisible
[3:53](Principia) Row row
[3:53](Kuma) FIGHT THE POWA
[3:53](Chibidew) ok
[3:53](Chibidew) so hard when I’m lag

[3:53](♠Kujimaro) sorry dew, making you do this
[3:54](♠Kujimaro) lets try another time
[3:54](Chibidew) why here st do everything >_>

She plays on Masamune (as WAR, ST) and on the Japanese DF, healer picks up the Generator and drags the adds to the correct place, while Sub-Tank waits and grabs big Faust, and no one fights aggro against the ST. The monk was like screaming at Dew to do the generator and she didn’t understand why. And the monk screamed at her for not grabbing the big Faust, yet still pound fists on it to compete aggro, and she can’t understand why, either.

[3:54](♠Kujimaro) how does it work in masa?
[3:55](Chibidew) I know why drk need mt
[3:55](Chibidew) he lazy drama
[3:55](♠Kujimaro) hm
[3:55](Chibidew) in vdo guide and masa healer drag XD
[3:56](♠Kujimaro) sorry ill drag next time
[3:56](Chibidew) but need me voke fast too
[3:56](♠Kujimaro) no you cannot voke add
[3:56](Chibidew) today I think I’m lag
[3:56](♠Kujimaro) because tether
[3:56](♠Kujimaro) you can voke the big add tho
[3:56](Chibidew) yes
[3:57](♠Kujimaro) just not the normal one
[3:57](Chibidew) I don’t know why dps not drag big add to me at A
[3:57](Chibidew) bcoz a is save point
[3:58](Chibidew) this one strong and we can not kill fast

Additional info, at start, Dew tried to be a Main Tank, she engaged first, but the DRK in the party wouldn’t yield to her and kept competing aggro. She got tired and gave up. And became Sub Tank.

I told her to, from now on, say at start of the fight that she wants to MT, as the lag makes it hard to grab the add quickly, which could mean a wipe to the party. If anyone complains and wants her to ST anyway, she should explain her lag problem to her, if they can accept a delayed Provoke, then it’s fine. 

/doze on Oriental Deck

Recently rearranged FC house garden with a help from Dew (she designed the whole thing after I crafted stuff) and a help from Riot (making Oriental bridge).

Then, today Riot told me he found out from his friend that we can use /doze emote on the Oriental Deck. So I and Dew played with a few screenshots hahahaha!

ffxiv_06182016_082314_new ffxiv_06182016_102940_new ffxiv_06182016_103219_new ffxiv_06182016_103327_new ffxiv_06182016_103517_new ffxiv_06182016_103614_new ffxiv_06182016_103659_newFFXIV_Dew01

I also found a way to make my /sit become floor sit on the bench instead of normal seat pose. :D



Shitty mouth SMN

As you may have deducted from the title, today’s entry will be an angry rant full of swearing.

I went to sleep and woke up to an old message from Dew on Skype, wailing about a leveling roulette she did alone while I was asleep. She pasted a batch of chatlog, and I read it and could only say WTF. It’s so wrong in so many levels.

[6:57](Chibidew K.) Hello!><)/

[7:53](Chibidew K.) Thank
[7:53](Azatro T.) and the idiots finally did it
[7:53](Chibidew K.) TT_TT
[7:53](Xandu K.) ooooo mean comments

OK, first thing first, the tank. The tank claimed to have been taking care of his or her baby. I understand that real life shit can come up and mess with your gaming. But in my opinion, it would be much nicer if one has some decency to communicate to the party that there was an emergency matter that requires immediate attention, or tell the party BEFOREHAND that you cannot pay 100% attention to the battle in the dungeon. Dragging the party through your shitty play because you have something outside of the game to deal with is quite cruel. People are unprepared, and thus have no time or too short time to try to think of plan B.

At least for me, if I know that the tank is going to have less focus to the fight, I can prepare myself ahead of the time to heal faster and earlier, and also know I should preserve MP and some skills for OH SHIT situation that might spring up any moment soon. Not knowing what to expect can spell disaster to the whole party.

Also, that attitude “quit [complaining], i got a kid to deal with too” was also so wrong. NO. You better be apologetic that you’re causing trouble. Being like “so what?” like this and blaming others for not putting up with you is a no-no. If the kid’s matter needs so much attention, a decent person would tell the party “Wait, please.” and perhaps “Kid aggro, BRB 5 mins.” or something. Playing with half attention (or half of your available hands…) and wiping the party so many times is not fun. I know people play game to enjoy it and for fun. But you have to be considerate of other people’s “fun” too. Don’t be a shithead and be like “oh I play for fun, why so serious?” and make the party suffer from how shitty you are. No one likes their fun to be ruined.

Then, there is this SMN who was fast to throw insult.

It is EASY to blame healer when the party dies. But have you looked carefully and analyzed the situation?

Healers aren’t omnipotent gods who has endless pool of MP to heal through abnormally prolonged fight. Healing in Brayflox (normal) last boss is difficult enough for a veteran healer like me, even in a decent party. What do you expect of a healer in a party where people don’t dodge and fail to avoid boss regen (poison) mechanic?

Of course if you stand in the pool of poison, you lose HP, and boss keeps recovering its HP. “Healer sucks” and “manage your MP” weren’t the correct comment, nor do they point to the real problem that needs to be solved.

Manage MP?

White Mage has Regen at level 35. Regen is great and is more MP-efficient in comparison with Cure. It helps a lot and should always be used. BUT GUESS WHAT. Brayflox is capped at 34. So a capped WHM in Brayflox normal cannot use Regen. The system prevents it.

What about MP recovery skill? Oh yep, Shroud of Saints is great. But it is 38. GUESS WHAT? It is also capped and is inaccessible in Brayflox normal.

Of course if healer has to cure bomb the tank, MP will run dry. Doesn’t mean healer sucks or is bad at managing MP. This SMN made me want to stab someone eye’s out with the blunt end of my WHM wand. So much ignorance and absurdly mean comments made me furious!

(She’s been drinking Hi-Elixir, too, because that was all she had.)

It’s ridiculous how people are quick to blame someone without looking at the whole situation and analyze it to see where the flaw is and where the party can improve.

My friend isn’t fluent in English, yet she tried so hard to communicate and give advice to the tank to make the situation improve.

What did the SMN do? Just yelling at people. Why didn’t you at least try to be helpful by telling the tank what to do, instead of just screaming at the healer and the tank. (I know the tank is highly likely non-English speaker, but apparently they can understand a little, and with help of translator, there should be enough understanding in communication.) Blaming the healer, saying healer suck, and not contributing the information to the party, yet going angry when the party does not succeed well, is not just ridiculous, but stupid. Contribute to it. Say something useful. Tell tank or the party what to do to improve. Be constructive.

In my eyes, my friend did much better and tried harder than the SMN. She tried to tell the tank to move the dragon away from poison. She tried to tell tank to change belt to a better one. SMN only kicked and screamed and pointed finger and left “idiots” comment before leaving. Wow, that’s so useful (Sarcasm)!  //sigh

I used to get into Brayflox with a random tank who still wore level 25 gear! We didn’t even get past the first boss, because the tank kept dying so easily. What did the 2 DPS in my party do? Tried to tank the adds (failed, and died, over and over.) We wiped for 3 or 4 times before someone said I’m sorry, I can’t continue like this, and left. No one blamed me, the healer, because they had EYES and were also smart enough to see that tank gear was at fault. When a tank is undergeared, it is harder to keep them alive. Don’t scream at the healer. Look at the root of the problem. If you only know how to scream at people and throw insults, without even paying attention to the circumstances or analyzing what went wrong that caused the failure, then YOU are the idiot. Pshhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!

Goodbye Bahamut!!!

Goodbyeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee Bahamuttttttttttttt!!!!!

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.

ffxiv_05222016_230638_new ffxiv_05222016_230640_new ffxiv_05222016_230652_new ffxiv_05222016_230658_new

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!)

Beat T11

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.

ffxiv_05142016_234305_new ffxiv_05142016_234308_newffxiv_05142016_234310_new

Wheeeeeeeeeeee~ I’m so happy today.

Corn even got a Dreadwyrm robe for his SMN. It’s so purdy!!!


FC: En Taro Adun <4Aiur>

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
