Zakum FJ

So at zakum tonight I saw a friend die, and since it was like the last centimeter of his hp, I decided to ‘try’ and die beside him, but I attempted the death with something a bit more daring….

147

Me likey 4x exp events! =D

I hit 147 last night, just like I’d had hoped I’d get by Sunday evening, so I’m happy to have reached my goal. Now that my free 2x card poofed and the 2x events went kapow, I’m back to normal, slow 1x grinding at 3% an hour soloing. T_T Maybe I’ll buy a 2x card till I get to 150… Should be like 375-400 million exp to go… Rawr now I’mma try and hit that by Christmas.

They had a pro ap reset sale as part of the event, where ap resets were 3 for 5$, and I bought 4 of the packages. I’ve got 104 base dex now. =D Whoooo still high but not 120 like it used to be a month ago.

I made 10 dex earrings like 2 nights ago that made resetting that much dex actually possible, which is a good thing, because I didn’t feel like wasting tons of money on making dex earrings.

Progress on my 14x video is coming along slowly…. seems like as soon as I finish it I’ll be right on or already in the 15x levels… Hmm.

Anyways I just got home from my grandparents house, where I stayed during Thanksgiving week. Took about 2 and a half hours of driving so it’s good to be home and out of the rainy weather.

k I’m off to griiiiiiiiiiind. =F

Level 144, 145, Pap solo

So Nexon decided to mess up with some people’s accounts during the Server Check on Tuesday night, which made it so I couldn’t log on until they fixed that problem with another server check…. That pretty much broke my character. They took me off the rankings, made it so I couldn’t open my store, couldn’t trade people, couldn’t accept trades, couldn’t drop things out of my inventory, and couldn’t make parties. Dunno what caused the problems, but they righted the glitch later the next morning.

Apparently I wasn’t the only one with these problems, and as a reimbursement of the lost time/levels(some people lost levels/exp/money), they gave us 24 hour 2x cards, that last until Sunday. On top of that there’s a 2x exp event going on every day from Wednesday to Sunday, during 8am pst to 8pm pst. Stacked with the 2x card they gave me, I’m getting pro 4x exp for 12 hours a day, and 2x for the rest, and its wonderful. 😀

I hit 144 last night, trained from 143 at 26% to 144 12% last night, and right now as I type I’m at level 145 and 46%…. that makes 134% all today, and I’ll train a little more tonight. Only downside to this event is that because kids are out of school, it has them ALL playing, and it’s soooo hard to find any map worthwhile on training without Leafre being released. I was in a 3-way party at himes all day, and as I heard, all the squid and goby maps were full. Even the black squid maps were packed. >.<

I plan to hit 146 at least, and hopefully almost if not at 147 by the end of the event…. whoo then I shoot for 150 by Christmas.

I like this version of Nexon that makes an effort to care about their customers. =D

Btw, I tried that pap solo again after I hit 144, and had 4037 with hp gear and I managed to solo perfectly fine in 22 minutes with apples on.

Pap Solo

So I finally finished scrolling up all my HP gear, and got myself up to 4011 HP. So I went on to pap, and gave it a try. Since I had so much hp gear on I was crazy weaker than normal so I used Apples(2)….. It would’ve all done great had a bomb not decided to do 4012 damage to me, and see below to understand how freaking close I was.

It actually healed before I took that SS, I was down to about 1 pixel left. >_> Wahhh bb 2 apples, 100 cheeses and 1%. T_T

143

Yuh, hit 143 last night! Been training like a maniac lately(without 2x, too), or at least it feels like it. @_@  I hit 142 on Wednesday, and then 143 was yesterday(Sunday). I probably won’t get much training this week because of thanksgiving and going out of town and stuff.

Also this week I started soloing Tengus to get Hime maps… It’s pretty dangerous, but as for my first 2 solos I didn’t die at all. The 3rd time I started set things up with the himes, but once I had them webbed in the corner, I wound up FJing too much away and ran straight into Tengu. xD

I’m getting anxious for some more equip upgrades…. 14+wg and 4att cape pls. ;_; The release of the stormcaster gloves has tooooootally deflated the GMS glove market. Where 12att’s used to be worth 90-100m, now they’re 50-55. 14’s were like 300+, now they’re 150m. 15’s took the place of the old 14 price. Rawr, I need to save my money, but I’m still converting all my steelies into Ilbis.

Peace~ o/

Level 142~

So I grinded about 20m exp yesterday and toughed out 25m today, and managed to level about 15 minutes before Zakum started at 8:30pst.

My motivation for leveling now is leaning more towards getting stronger as a hermit than just being higher leveled.

I planned to reset the 6 available stat points I have in dex that I can turn into luk with no problems, but then I decided to wait till after the patch. Maybe we’ll get Riprey, although I highly doubt it. If we do, then my decision to keep my excess dex will be correctly founded, and if we don’t get it…. well I’ll reset those points tomorrow. =D

*sigh*

Rawr, been a while since I blogged. 😮

I’ll start things off by saying I got a job installing GPS units for some company named Wireless Matrix. I’ve been doing the ‘jobs’ with my dad and it requires tons of driving to get where we need to install these units. Anyways the pay is good for each unit we install, but the jobs can be inconsistent…. So far we’ve only been doing this about 3 weeks, but 3 weeks ago, we had to drive all the way to Raleigh, NC(3 hours from home), to do a 15 minute job. Last week we went to Myrtle Beach, SC with another job, had 4 things to install there, which only took about 5-6 hours total(different kind of ‘install’ than the first one we did), and then we stayed an extra day after that because we brought my mom and brothers with us as well for a little beach time.  Then Sunday night(the…4th?), we drove from home down to Atlanta, where we stayed working on 32 more trucks installing units over the next 3 days(another dude was working with us), then we drove north from Atlanta up to Franklin, NC, and after that made a few stops on places along the way to the final destination at Greensboro, NC. The other guy came with us to Greensboro to show me and my dad how to install this different type of gps unit on tractor trailers(the big 18wheeler boxcar things)…. After that(which was last night), we stayed there to install 3, then we drove home from Greensboro(2 hour drive).

That brings me to now, Friday morning, where we have to go BACK to Greensboro later today, because starting early all day tomorrow we’ll be installing those trailer units.

Oh, and my laptop AC Adapter decided to die on me last Thursday night, the day after we got back from Myrtle Beach. So I’ve gotten pretty much NO chance at all to really play MS in almost 2 weeks. Still level 141, 20%, and hopefully work will stop pulling me away from home for at least a week(it’s contract work, not scheduled). Soooo right now I’m waiting on my replacement adapter to arrive, which will probably happen on Monday.

Arghhhh so many people are passing me on the Windia ranks. >.< Gone two weeks and 6 people passed me already(which is alot at 141).

So there’s my blog and rant. Hopefully adapter will be ready to roll on Monday and I can get back to training my Hermit.

TTFN~

P.S. Leafre pls.
