So yeah.  Another favorite character died.  I had already liked her, but she just had her moment of badassitude and I like, "Woman, I love you," and then she died in the very same scene.

I don't even know why I was surprised.

A checklist for tomorrow Friday, mostly Bazaar stuff to take care of:
  • Talk to Gatsley, buy Hunter's Monograph
  • Talk to a weapon shop owner 30 times, buy Knight's Monograph
  • Talk to a magic shop owner 25 times, buy Mage's Monograph
  • Read Mob Hunt bulletin board 40 times, buy Warmage's Monograph and Dragoon's monograph
  • Talk to armor shop owner 15 times, buy Scholar's Monograph
  • Talk to any shop owner 100 times, buy Sage's Monograph
  • Do all the hunts we haven't done, we'll need the money
  • Try to take on the optional summons?
  • SKIP minor weapon/armor upgrades, because we need all our money to buy Monographs

So, like, we got far enough to meet Balthier.  Yeah.  Slow progress.  We were busy killing everything in sight.  ...Well, I did that to, to be fair.  I did it in a systematic fashion.  She just runs around looking for treasure chests and annihilates anything that dares stand in her way.  Except when its bigger.  She has clearly not played enough MMOs since she runs from anything bigger than a rat.

Which is fair, I guess, since the rats are pretty good at getting her into critical HP zone.

I got stuck in FF12.  Because I am way too wussy for Leviathan.  I admit, I wasn't taking it seriously enough.  I mean, the entire last dungeon whooped my ass to the point that my idea of "fighting" was basically running like hell and using phoenix downs.  Yeah.  That bad.

I don't think I'm that underleveled (Basch is lv10, Vaan is lv7, Fran/Balthier are lv8, Vossler is a god) but I am aware that Vossler is doing about twice as much damage as the rest of my party put together, though closer to 3/2 if I bring out Basch.  I get the feeling Vossler's supposed to be pretty kickass dps-wise, but this is just ridiculous.  It doesn't help that my characters all die within a handful of hits, which means I'm out of MP at the end of every encounter and burning through items if there's more than one mob.

Basically, the not-a-boss Boss Fight with two judges and four losers is whooping my ass.  ...Dunno what that makes me if I call the four lackeys losers.  Admittedly, I've only attempted it twice so far. The first time, I was at half HP and no MP and got my ass handed back to me within 30 seconds.  I did manage to take out one judge on the second attempt (full MP, half HP), but that was after three party member deaths (Basch and Fran were still standing), except they both died about two seconds after.  Following the pattern, if I attempted it again, I should be able to take out both judges.

The reason I'm always at half HP is because there's no way in hell I can survive setting off an alarm and actually fighting, so I settle for setting off the alarm and running into the next zone, which leaves me at half HP.  And I probably could survive the alarm, but my meager supply of Potions (3 normal, 0 Hi-Potions) and Phoenix Downs (lawl 0) definitely won't survive with me.

So... yeah.  Sonya, get your ass over here so we can get your save file up to where mine is.  And hopefully you will not neglect gearing up and leveling as much as I did.

I'll probably try the fight again soon.  With enough miracles, I can definitely pull it off.  I'm hoping Ashe comes at a suitably high level to make up for my massive suckage.

It arrived.  Didn't check out the bonus disk because, frankly, I don't really care.

Yes, Sonya, I started playing without you.  No worries, Sonya, I ought to start over anyway.  I wouldn't mind playing on my file, but I'm fairly sure you'd be a bit miffed that I already fucked over getting the strongest weapon.  In other news, I am 1) broke and 2) underleveled.  I'd mention how I had no clue what I was doing on the license board as well, but I'm not stupid enough to screw that up.  Went for the heals first, naturally.  Regardless, we'll have to talk over plans for the license grid for characters and such.  I don't think we'll have a set dream team in this game though.

Uh, when you get FF12, make sure you or SOMEONE invests in the guide however crappy it is because methinks we need as many charts and maps as we can get.

Nevermind, it's a BradyGames guide.  I should've known.
