4th Job advancement video, no TT

So yeah, my advancement video is finished…. and I still don’t have TT. That makes 5 runs where it’s my turn and still nada. Maybe tomorrow!

4th job, skills, 154, drama, etc…

4th job has been out now for 5 or so days, and it’s been awesome every minute of it. ;D

The first three days after the patch I spent at Cornians hunting for Venom 20…. to no such luck. I don’t think they actually drop it or other skills here like they do in MSEA, JMS, etc. In the end my friend Alex(Kaidatan), found me a venom 20 book at pap and gave it to me(I paid 10m for his trouble). It worked so that was all good and done and I haven’t spent any annoying amount of time at Cornians since. 😀 Hefferheffer gave me a Venom 30 to try throwing on but it failed the other day, and since there’s other Hermits that need that now as well, I’ll just have to wait it out to try again. Which is fine with me.

Later on the same day Maken(xExalionx) messaged me that he had found a Fake (Shadow Shifter) 20 book and so I decided to buy that from him for 15m. It worked, and then shortly after my other friend Richie(NoIce4Richie) found a level 30 Fake book in FM for 10m, so I bought that and it worked. Yay for Fake being out of the way, it’s an amazing skill to have. 30% total avoid is sexyyyyy.

I hit 154 yesterday(Sunday), as well. Training with a bishop using Genesis is so fast. @_@ I’m clocking like 9m~ exp an hour on 1x with level 20 venom and still using Lucky Seven. I’m anxious to see how much quicker it gets when I get Triple Throw. Here’s a screenshot. x)

Even since the first zakum run we did after 4th job(the same day it was released), just having skills like Sharp Eyes and Maple Hero was plenty enough to cut our average run time in HALF. Our first zrun as 4th jobbers took only 14 minutes, compared to the old 25-30 as 3rd jobbers. It’s amazing how much stronger we are now!

The other night a guy named Thalkorn whispered me and said he had found the letter required for the Ninja Storm quest, so I decided to buy it from him for 10m. After doing that I’ve now got my Ninja Storm, and it’s an awesome skill, even though it’s only level 4 now. PKBing things gives a new sense of mob control I haven’t felt before.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My greed of Triple Throw has begun to show, and it has begun to negatively affect other people. I came to a rude awakening tonight after Zakum when Temporality pretty much grilled me for thinking of myself higher than other people that had gone to runs longer than me, even if they had been playing other servers or quit. And so now I guess I should take up the burden of the Christian I am and let everybody else go first. Even if I don’t feel like it… sometimes doing the right thing isn’t always fun. Serves me right for being so selfish.

I think that’s it for tonight…. I’m going to be making a video of my advancement as soon as I get TT I guess. Later~

4th job babyyyyyyyyyyy.

So yeah, I’m waiting on the patch to end like right now hurhuhur. Can’t wait! I’m going to be the first NL on Windia. x)

So whee, I’ll post back later. ❤

Here’s a screenshot because I can and it’s free.

Far Cry is pretty~

Lag resolved

So yeah, I woke up today and the internet was not connected at all. I went into the router’s config and it said the internet was not available…. which made me think it was an ISP problem. So I spent all day sitting around watching tv and stuff waiting on the internet till like 5pm when I asked my dad just to call the company. They said that the internet was totally functional and to try hooking the comp straight up to the modem without using the router… That worked so I spent my whole day waiting on a broken router to work. Luckily we still had our Router from Germany so earlier my dad and I went to buy an AC adapter so that it would work in an American outlet(USA uses a 110v power system and Europe uses a 220v system). So after that we got it hooked up and I’m not having a messed up internet connection anymore. So apparently the lag was all caused by that and I’ve been dealing with it for almost a week now. >.<

Last night my friend let me use her Priest at Zakum and it was tons of fun. :3(Thanks Lucy!!) It requires alot more concentration than playing a Hermit because you have to use dispel and heal and potions all together and all that good stuff. :3

I’m really really getting restless about when 4th job is coming out…. I hope it comes out this week!

Chillax and Lag

Still waiting for 4th job…. so in the meantime I’ve just been playing other games and MS at night for Zakum and APQ.  Sorta like a calm before the storm kinda thing. 😀

I doubt I could seriously train on MS regardless of whether I wanted to or not because my internet has been having some crazy lag the past few days… My dad called the ISP and they said they were working on some street nearby… I hope that’s the problem and they fix it before tomorrow.

On other notes it snowed here last night and it looked absolutely gorgeous. :3 We only got about 1 inch, and it’s already all melted away, but it was nice while it lasted~

kk, off to Need for Speed Underground 2. ttyl

Hermit Resolve[Video], Level 153.

Finally finished that video I had been working on for ages…. I’m not quite happy with it because I lost interest in it as a whole around halfway through. I just bothered to finish it for the sake of not wasting the work I already put into it. Enjoy!

————————–

Also, I hit level 153 earlier. The level up footage is in the video! x)

153 will have been the last level up I do as a Hermit, since 4th job is only 3 days away…. Can’t wait!

New computer!

So I finally got around to buying all the parts to build my new computer about a week ago… and the last ones finally arrived yesterday. x) I’ll list the specs below.

Asus nvidia sli 650i motherboard
3GB RAM
512MB nVidia 8800GT
320GB Hard Drive
Intel Core 2 Quad 2.4ghz(x4)
DVD burners
and I think that’s it.. at least for the techie specs. xP

Maple’s been maple. I’m still 152.. not really motivated to train and hime maps are so hard to come by now. @_@

I’ll probably be playing lots of games other than Maple for a little while, at least till 4th job comes out.

5 more days!
