The Never Ending Cavalcade of Failure.

9 10 2009

Though from our blog entries as of late, it may seem to the uninitiated that we are skipping many events, however one would be making a false assumption. It’s important to note I generally do not see fit to update the same Fafnir dropping assjammer, or Aspidochelone dropping good ol’ Dfeet, but in the interest of maintaining a sense to the outside world that we indeed are as strong as ever, I will update the latest batch of claims and kills.

This morning being the most expected, an easy claim Aspidochelone that of course only dropped Dryadic Abjuration: feet. But the Egg was sold to a Monk for a paltry 5,000,000 gil. One third of the price we sold an unused Nidhogg abjuration for, so I guess it was not all bad.


A few days ago we managed to hop on out to Chasm and claim ourselves a Tiamat too. Though of course, as is the case with most HNM, the desired item eluded our treasure pool. A rather uneventful battle, Tiamat remaining one of the least impressive foes to grace the surface of Vana’diel.


Khimaira, on the other hand was SLIGHTLY more generous, actually dropping something (though how useful is a case of much debate) that could be considered in terms of blog worthy. Of course however, Hauteclaire Fail chain continues uninturrupted.


And what entry would be complete without complimentary lulz. This one courtesy of Freonski’s quest for Maat’s Cap. As a little backstory for the screenshot, Freo had been trying to get Dragoon’s Testimony for about 5 hours. Alaistair decided he could get it first try, and they made a gentleman’s wager, the results captured in undeniable default screencap.


Non-existant Treasures of Aht Urhgan

If I could have one request in regards to FFXI, it would be to view the drop algorithms for Notorious monsters in the game. What variable is there that makes shitty linkshells obtain 5 of said item in 2 kills, while another LS who is clearly more competent (Though that technically isn’t saying much) can kill 31 of them and obtain only one. It boggles the mind really. But I suppose if everyone got everything, the game would lose it’s appeal pretty quickly. However, hard as it may be to believe, we still have fun with our events, and in the fairly lax atmosphere, we make fun of the occasional idiot maneuver while a giant purple cockbag hopelessly flails his pathetic attacks in an attempt to defend itself.


And of course, while this was going on, Cerberus was alive and meandering about for some hours, since nobody else saw fit to kill, we figured, what the fuck. I’ll hit that. And so we did. At least when Cerberus fails, only a loldrk is burned.


Busy day indeed.

Ah the weekends. A time to relax, maybe crack open a few brews, fuck that hedgehog you call a girlfriend. Indeed wonderful times.

Unless you’re in a linkshell, then, everything pops in succession as you’re about to go out for a night on the club. Still, it’s something to blog about, so here’s the latest batch of woopakills.


Unfornately, it is a with a little hesitance I post this Nidhogg picture. I never like the idea of someone else profiting off our work, but I suppose since nobody wanted, it’s okay. It just sucks having to lose a Nidhogg abjuration.Nid

And of course, we have Angry Purple Fail, Khimaira, who’s tenancy to drop absolutely nothing is quite astonishing.

KhimAnd that sums this eventful day up. Until next time.

Same old tune.

It’s been some time now since the last update, and the Linkshell has had perhaps more exciting days.  Aside from a few Synthesis Materials ONLY Khimairas  the past week week, WoopaTroopas has been playing Glue factory, slaying an alarming number of horses in the field of battle, some fights proceeding more smooth than others nevertheless we continue on our horse extermination campaign. Thanks to our tenacity however the Linkshell coffers swell with enough gil to buy the Earth and all the heavens,  and perhaps we shall complete that transaction in the future.  But seeing 30 Dark Ixion drop lists does not make for good blogging, so instead I shall show a brief glimpse into the sexual tensions that we are currently experiencing.  sexualtensions

As you can see, the shenanigans never cease between these two, however in order to keep a PG-13 Atmosphere I must not continue with what followed after the above line of text.  To compensate however, I will end this somewhat brief post with a bit of lulz at my expense.  The Tip for the day, is read carefully before you comment.


Happy hunting fellow fighters!

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.
