Here's a couple LS pics i was working on before it ended. Meh, they look alright i guess, but i never bothered to finish them. I think i missed a bunch of people. Look how sexy Dolmen and Raye look and how dead Zelfire looks.
Well less than 30 days til Aion goes live. I haven't touched FFXI in 2 months now. My account is sitting inactive and i really have no desire to fire it up. Even thinking about it puts me in a bad mood. I think it's because i don't like to put up with bitching and complaining. Tell me what job and where to go and i'm happy. I feel like i'm back to my laid back, sarcastic as fuck, old self.
So far we have around 20 members for our legion from recent FFXI and oldschool FFXI of 3 years ago. Seems like a really nice group of people with no assholes, except for Bastilla. Just kidding, but not really! If you happen to be reading this and are interesting, hit me up on here or on BG and i'll direct you to our temp forum. Jack, stop playing WOW, we need more asians. Oh Katrisha, respond to your damn e-mail.
It looks like Aion will be a game of numbers in the Abyss. Probably need 30+ to take over forts and open up the instances within. The instances themselves look like they're mostly 6-man starting at lev 30. The thing that struck me first was that some legions have 80-100 members. I find that insane, probably due to the fact that i'm so used to FFXI's small numbers. I guess it makes sense, you can do the instances with a few of your close friends, then go ransack the fortresses with a huge group. Should be fun.
I finally gave in and decided to kill some time on the Chinese servers. Setting up and account was ridiculously simple and paying for it is really cheap. I think i bought like 50 hours for $4, which is cheaper than a sub would be, considering i'm not really playing that much. Oh and the game client is free to download, which surprised me. With the English patch and so many NA and EU players on my server, it feels a lot like FFXI. Although doing some of the group quests has been a bit of an adventure with zero communication. Anyways, i turned up my setting on my pc so i could take some pics. Unfortunately i can't play with these setting as my FPS goes to shit.
Doing some quests in Eiron Desert. I went afk for about 10 seconds to get a drink and was destroyed by some Asmo's that wandered through a nearby rift.
Talking to my friendly tree NPC in Manduri Forrest. An Asmo tried to kill me shortly after, but we outnumbered him and set him home.
Farming for my lev 22 stigma stone Stunning Strike in Theobomos. I gave up after 3 hours and just bought it off the AH with the money i got from the mobs!
We ended up chasing some Asmo's through the desert and into Grave of Sataloca. So much fun. Well, until high level Asmo's attack and we have no chance. Damn movement speed boots!
