I just managed to take care of one of my goals in FFXI: Red Mage Maat.

First attempt was last night, and I tried doing it melee with my Hornetneedle and Enstone II/Aero III. Didn't work out so well. Got him under 50% life within ~6.5 minutes, but that's when he decided I'd used enough ethers and potions at that point and smote my ass.

So this morning I trekked out to Beadeaux for another round with Ruby Quadav. There was a BST80 there, and he offered to kill Ruby for me. He used the ladybug pet, and got a RDM Testament on the first one (so that made me 2/2 on Testimony drops). Well, I warped back to Jeuno, and decided to give it a go.

I had Dark, Wind, and Stone Staves with me... but no Water Staff for Water III, and not a single grip since I'm normally meleeing with our static trio. Nothing special as far as other other gear - just what I wear for XP (including full AF).

Cleared the battle in 4 minutes, 56 seconds... just off the current record of 4 minutes, 49 seconds. I finished with 628 HP / 134 MP. Got a couple of skillups in Enfeebling, Elemental and Evastion, too.

  • Craziness, or Why does my brain do this to me?

    Admittedly, I've been ignoring LJ in favor of posting stuff to Facebook. However, this is just far too wacky and out there for Facebook... so I'm…

  • I'm free... free falling...

    Well, down to free LJ and its 6 userpics. Definitely need to do some housecleaning to get to six I would actually use. >_< Oh well. After all,…

  • It's April 1, Fools...

    Okay, so I really am not a fan of April Fool's Day, especially with all the crap that game sites and fansubbers tend to pull... although I really…
