An eventful weekend

13 04 2009

The weekend, the promising time of rest after a hard week’s work, the time at which one would get drunk or laid, maybe even both. Assuming you’re not a nerdy geek that is.
In the case of our hard-working drones it’s obviously the latter as evidenced by the all the things we have accomplished in the past two days.

Now, where to begin? Chronological order would be the obvious choice, so let’s cut to the chase and start with an Ixion, boring and repetitive as usual despite the new rage timer, but at least not quite as stingy as one would expect:

Ixion Drops

Following this fate had quite an interesting twist in store for us since the Khimaira decided to show its disfigured body, which obviously caught our attention. And so some of us went on a journey to the Caedarva Mire, a dark place infested with tentacle-monsters most of us know from certain Japanese, uh, comic books,
and engaged the Khimaira in a fight that would best be described as boring exciting and refreshing. Eventually we were rewarded with our linkshell’s very first Hauteclaire, congratulations to Freonski since he finally found a sword big enough to match his giant crotch!
Also, congratulations to Lichtl on getting his brand-new Seveneyes!

Brad Kidd approved Khimaira drops

As you can see, these drops have received Brad Kidd’s seal of approval, something the two aforementioned lootwhores persons on the receiving end can only answer with a cry of joy:

Lichtl and the guy with the giant wang

Naturally we could not just leave it at that even though the end of the weekend drew nearer and nearer and so we went to town with the self-proclaimed ruler of the skies, king of wyrms, Bahamut:


Not the most exciting of drops, but depending on what my capable hands do with the cloth we might be able to get some cash out of this.

Next we went on a trip to Temenos since it had been a while since our last bout with Ultima, yielding us the following:


Congratulations to Temudschin and Rafnir on Nashira crackows and Nashira turban!

Last one to fall was King Vinegarroon the dreaded, surprisingly passive scorpion king:
18 of our best men engaged him in a fight best described as epic, but there was no helping it, the mighty king would not waver despite our best efforts and so the wyvern who’s been my partner since January 2005, Rygor, decided to finish him off with a mighty blow:

Rygor almighty

The drops weren’t quite as appealing as we had hoped, but at least Rygor got a chance to display his powers.
Yes, maybe he really did just happen to land the last hit as KV was torn apart by a bunch of Apocalypse/various multi-hit weapons wielding DRKs, but we really shouldn’t mind the details too much, right?

With that we could finally call it a day, allowing our men and women to finally get some hard-earned rest, it was the weekend after all.

Today’s word of advice:
Don’t get drawn in by King Vinegarroon when you’re fighting an Antica on the other side of the map, things might get ugly when a train of them finally catches up with you.
