Thanks to Adore
, I could finally land in endgame again. I kinda recovered from yesterday’s depression, too, fortunately.
What to say? Well, I for sure enjoyed the evening quite a bit! I sticked my lance into a bad doggo’s arse (ew)
, I bathed in the GLORY OF DESTRUCTION
(gotta love Fatebreaker’s fight), got touched by Mitron (*stares at the name terriblingly too close to Mitra
n’s*) and Loghrif’s relationship and the Eden Prime’s fight (I didn’t expect it, but I liked it quite a bit) and I finally managed not to get raped by six different arms at the same time.All in all, I think I did well, for having done the Duties almost blindly (I’ve once seen the guides of E9~12S out of curiosity but really didn’t recall all of the mechanics explained), for my first time... Maybe I’m not that shit afterall... Maybe:
One death count in E9 for.. a seriously imbecile and avoidable yet iconic error of any DRG:
Empty Plane hits, me chill, this ain’t Savage bitching
Bitch casts pointblank AoE right at the same time I activate Life Surge to pair with Full Thrust
Me sad, me have to move away and watch the timer inexorabily run out
Me BiG bRaIn, me prepare to Elusive Jump back to slap big damage her booty ASAP
Me do Elusive Jump as soon as the AoE marker goes off, me have around 1 second for Life Surge, I can do it!
Me notice I’m traveling a little too fast and “It was at this moment he knew... He fucked up.” plays in my head
Me land exactly on the death zone
One death count in E10 because the game wanted me dead (I was trying to run away from the Fade to Shadow AoEs, but I was quite far when it started casting frontal Implosion so I ended up eating both attacks ‘cause I had no time to run away anymore. Unlucky me I guess).
One death count in E12 because I didn’t position myself correctly for Bomb Boulders and ended up eating two explosions in rapid sequence. Fault’s on me, but I really didn’t know the exact explosion range, so I can.. be forgiven? Perhaps?
Four death counts in Ruby Weapon’s second phase. I legit had no idea what the fucking hell was going on (I even wasted a LB bar on the boss because I didn’t know it was a multiphase fight). Adds spawned, I take one of the two, both the tanks decide to rape the same add and I get rekt by the other because I had aggro and of course healers didn’t give a shit. The second death came from Dalamud falling (legit had no idea what was going on), got raised, but then literally as soon as Transcendence fades I get destroyed by meteors because healers didn’t heal me at all after my resurrection (*stares at Tofu occupied Glaring*). The fourth death was caused by central meteor falling and not being able to hide behind one in time.
One death count in Emerald Weapon as soon as the platform got smaller because I didn’t activate Arm’s Length in time for the hidden pushback and me and other four players got yeet’d.
I think I should start recording my gameplay.. it’d be nice to share and/or just rewatch.I really, really feel bad about still being in Neo-Ishgardian attire doing endgame content. Sure, I’m not too undergeared, but man, do I feel the difference in damage compared to other players... I also fear for any logs the players I’ve got matched with could’ve uploaded... I wonder how low I parsed if it was the case... But no matter. I shouldn’t really care about that for now.
I gathered 4 Eden tokens for the week, so I’ll exchange them for, respectively, an Accessory, a Helmet, Boots and.. another piece I don’t recall. Probably Gloves though. After that point, I’m planning about crafting everything for at least all my four main Jobs to use in Savages/EXs (WAR, DNC, DRG and RDM) and start by farming Emerald Weapon EX for the weapons.
