The first Empyrean completed. One of many to follow.

5 01 2011

It’s been a long time since the last post, but that’s the nature of Abyssea, nothing truly spectacular to report on, and the rewards are in quantifiable bits, rather than that one rare Abjuration that finally dropped. So alas, there is no real point in reporting “X many coins of Ardor dropped, whoopie” however, finally something worthy of mention has happened. The honor of the first Empyrean weapon completed belongs to yours truly. Through much toil, and strong camaraderie, the Empryrean Greatsword, Caladbolg, has been given a new home. To those special few who helped the most, Alaistair, Milie, and Tempelshine, I extend my dearest measure of gratitude. To the countless others who helped as well, I too wish to thank you.

With many other Empyreans progressing, who knows which of us will be endowed with the power to beat the living shit out of imaginary creatures? Only time will tell.


Rest easy, sweet prince.

Absolute Virtue has finally been Vanquished. I don’t know what more to say, while it certainly isn’t unprecedented, or particularly impressive on any other level but a managerial one, it still offers a great deal of closure to all who witnessed it. I’m not here to stroke our ego (Well, technically I am, but my blog, my rules bitch) so I’m not going to talk about how ‘azome’ we are for being able to basically kill something while Invincible, but what I will say, is great job to all participants, you earned your victory.

Moving on to less interesting, but more groundbreaking news, Abyssea continues to be the center of activity for almost all of FFXI. It’s a double-edged sword, of sorts. At the good end, you have fun content, and great loot, at the other, you have the forsaken and irrelevant game left behind by Abyssea. It is quite a strange position to be in, but perhaps SE intended this as a way to maintain both FFXIV and FFXI players’ simultaneous accounts, who is to say? Anyway, here’s the most noteworthy kills of our time in Abyssea.

Abyssea: The Story so Far.

Yes, Abyssea is a hit, not just with Endgame people, but with the FFXI community as a whole.  Ease of entry, amazing spoils and interesting encounters all make Abyssea the funnest Battle-Oriented FFXI Activity to date. Here’s just a taste of what we’ve got.

Also, in a shocking turn of Events, Nidhogg was actually generous, instead of his standard, Trolly, MBody/NLegs spamming self. Just when you think you got it figured out…
